L'Occitane: Arlésienne - ženska, ki je točno to, kar si želi biti

Veliko izmed vas je lahko opazilo, da smo se beauty bloggerke družile na Beuty konferenci v Ljubljani, ki se je odvijala v petek, 7. oktobra. Na konferenci smo se naučile veliko novega ter imele možnost preizkusiti in si od blizu ogledati veliko različnih znamk. Med temi je bil tudi L'Occitane s svojo novo linijo Arlésienne.

Rdeča nit cele kolekcije je ženska, ki je lahko točno to, kar si želi biti. Ker mi je ta trditev zelo blizu in ker mi je zelo všeč, sem se odločila, da tega zapisa ne bom posvetila izdelkom iz prihajajoče L'occitanove kolekcije, ampak njej, Arlésienne.

Arlésienne je drugačna, samosvoja in enostavno neponovljiva. Z eno besedo rečeno - je unikatna ženska, ki si drzne biti drzna. Skratka - ženska po mojih merilih. Tudi sama namreč velikokrat izstopam iz družbe, bodisi s svojim stilom oblačenja, makeupom, kakšnim modnim dodatkom ali čem drugim.

Ker Arlésienne obožuje okrasne trakove, ki si jih vpne v svoje lase, sem se odločila, da jo posnemam in se za nekaj minut postavim v njeno kožo. Ker mi Arlésienne ni želela povedati kako si vplete trakove, sem se znašla sama in si s trakom prepletla svoje lase, ki sem si jih predhodno spela v čop. Taka sem se danes sprehodila po Slovenski obali in se ob tem počutila fenomenalno.






V naslednjih tednih pa vam predstavim tudi nekaj izdelkov iz prihajajoče kolekcije! ;)

SECRET SANTA 2015




It is time for me to stop my winter hibernation and write a new post. Do you agree? Because I ended year 2015 in a great company of my friends and got some pretty awesome gifts, I decided to share with you one of them. Slovenian beauty blogers had a great idea: SECRET SANTA! Each bbloger gets another bbloger to give her a gift. I participated for the first time and I can confess that it is hard to buy a present for someone you don't know in person! 

Čas je, da se že prebudim iz zimskega spanca in napišem kakšno objavo. Se strinjate? Ker sem leto 2015 zaključila v dobri družbi in ob tem prejela tudi nekaj zelo lepih in uporabnih daril, sem se odločila, da z vami delim eno izmed njih. Slovenske lepotne blogerke so se spomnile super ideje: SECRET SANTA. Vsaka bblogerka dobi svojo obdarovanko in jo obdari z darilcem. Jaz sem prvič sodelovala pri tem in priznam, da je kar težko kupiti darilo za nekoga, ki ga osebno ne poznaš. 

I got my present from lovely Ajda from Ajda and Tjaša's beauty corner. When I opened beautifully wrapped package and opened the lid of the box, I became so excited! Ajda hit the nail on the head with every piece of my present. I got some new candles which had great Christmasy smell and a cute little doll which got her place on my night stand.

Jaz sem prejela svoje darilce od Ajde iz Ajda & Tjaša's beauty corner. Ko sem odprla lepo zavit paketek sem bila čisto navdušena! Ajda je zadela čisto z vsem. V paketku so me pričakale svečke s čudovitim božičnim vonjem in zelo lušten pajacek, ki sedaj krasi mojo nočno omarico. 




I also got 3 pieces of makeup. Whit just one glimpse at my blog, one can see that I love dark colours (and Ajda did look at my blog). So I got this lovely palette of 3 eyeshadows by Catrice (from Deluxe LE) 030 Rose. I really like purple so this pallet is just right! I also got this gorgeous dark ''vampy'' red nail polish 93 Red Night Mystery and limpstick 070 Plum & Base, whic is darke purple. 

Dobila sem tudi 3 kose ličil. Z enim pogledom mojega bloga človek lahko hitro ugotovi, da imam rada temne barve (in Ajda je to več kot očitno naredila). Tako me je v mojem paketku pričakala Catrice paletka treh senčk (iz kolekcije Deluxe) 030 Rose. Violično barvo zares obožujem zato, je tale paletka naravnost zame! Dobila sem tudi prekrasen temno rdeč ''vampy'' lak 93 Red Night Mystery in šminko 070 Plum & Base, ki je temno violične barve.







I want to thank again to Ajda for this beautiful and lovely gift. Beside the gift I also got something that I cherish a lot, a great new friend!

Še enkrat bi se rada zahvalila Ajdi za tako super darilo. Poleg lepega darilca pa sem dobila še nekaj, kar mi pomeni ogromno, čudovito novo prijateljico!

Opening of advent calendars: 1. day


I can officially say that I had never, ever own an advent calendar before. So this year I decided to buy one for my self and I decided on advent calendar from Essence. Later on, me and my fellow blogger were discussing all the advent calendars that we could find and we came across Bale advent calendar. Instantly I knew that I wanted one! At first it didn't look good as they said that they will only be sold in DMs in Germany. But when Tamara from CherryColors blog published a photo of her holding Balea advent calendar and said that you can get it in Slovenia too... Well I needed to get one as fast as possible!

So here they are! My two advent calendars. I will be posting photos of the content daily on my Facebook page and Instagram profile and I will also try to make blog posts about the content of the calendars every day.

 ESSENCE - 13 RUDOLPH'S FAVORITE 

Under the first window of  Essence advent calendar there was this beautiful red nail polish. It is a little bit lighter than it appears in the flask bit still, it is just perfect for the upcoming Christmas! Nail polish is creamy and you can apply it without any problems. For photos I used two coats but I think, that one, thicker, coat would do.




I also like that note that is printed on the other side of the window. I can't wait to read them all! I also need to say that the order of the products isn't the same in all of their advent calendars (if you click on the CherryColors blog, you can see that Tamara got polish in beautiful dark green!).



BALEA - BODYMILK

I am a huge fan of Balea products and I am happy that I got the chance to put my hand on one of their calendars. Under the first window, there was hiding Balea's bodymilk which smells really nice!



Did you get an advent calendar for yourself too? Which one? What do you think about Essence and Bale advent calendars? :)

October, the month of PINK

By now, you should notice that we are celebrating annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You can see pink ribbons everywhere.

What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too (American Cancer Society, 2015). 

It is important to know how to self-examine your breasts to discover any abnormalities in breast tissue. The earlier you discover them, the better it is! So don't forget to examine ''your two friends'' regularly! It is also good to have healthy lifestyle as well (healthy food, exercise).

I, along with lots of other Slovenian bloggers, decided to show support. We decided that this Wednesday is a PINK day. The rules were simple, just wear pink, have pink makeup or nails... Whatever you wanted! Since the day isn't over yet I urge you to join us and wear PINK!

And here is what I did in collaboration with other bloggers. I decided to do my first nail art manicure (it isn't perfect but I'm happy with the result) and to do a light pink makeup. I searched my makeup case and finally found every thing that I had in pink.






All the products I used for my makeup and nails are from Essence!
For my eyes I used eyeshadow palettes form TE Cinderella and Brit-Tea and Lashmania waterproof mascara.
For my lips I used: lipstick 02 Pink Me from TE Like An Unforgettable Kiss.
For my nail I used 03 Ring Around The Rosy from TE Fun Fair, 04 Snow Alert! from TE Mountain Calling, 02 Lovely Lavender from TE Bloom Me Up!. To draw a ribbon I used nail & cuticle tattoo liner and at the end, I sealed every thing with quick dry top coat.

Don't forget to check out posts from other Slovenian bloggers :)

Review: Ciaté nail polish



About a week ago, I saw that they started to sell Ciaté nail polishes in Slovenia! You can buy their nail polishes in DM Drogeriemarket (not all of DMs have them, though). I was searching for a shade that will go great with this fall weather (and later on winter), so I bought PP018 dangerous affair (I really like names of their nail polishes!).

The Ciaté dangerous affair is this really beautiful, gorgeous and awesome burgundy color. I am really in LOVE with it! The package which contains the polish is really something different. I like the unusual shape of the bottle and a little black ribbon on it.

The nail polish is creamy and not too thick or too runny. In my opinion it has just perfect consistency and it is really easy to work with it. The handle of brush is a little bit longer and at first I thought that it will be a problem but I quickly found out the opposite. The brush is soft and it ensures you the perfect and smooth application. It dries quickly, I did my left hand first than moved to the right hand and in time that I was done with the right hand, I could put a second coat on my left. You can took the nail polish off your fingers easily (I messed my left hand and I needed to redo it).

I'm happy that DM Drogeriemarkt Slovenia decided to sell this beauties! The price is 9,99€ per bottle and they sell (in my opinion) quite a lot of different shades. I think that every girl will find the perfect one for her.

I think that in (near) future I will have a lot of this beauties at home, I did like a lot of shades :)

If you are on of those that can't wait for this trend edition from Essence, check out Tamara's post on her blog Cherry Colors. She is a really lucky girl and received the eyeshadow palette earlier (I'm so jealous :D). She did the swatches and shared her first thoughts with us.

My fall favorites

Outside is getting cold again and the leaves are changing their color. I really like to spend this days outside with my fiancé. We like to take long walks in nature with our new dog Ziggy.

But everything isn't so nice. Cold is really affecting my skin and I really need to take extra care of it. I started to use my facial brush on the daily basis and it just became one of those things that I can't live without. My favorite skin products are Afrodita Clean Phase cleansing gel, Garnie Micellar Water in combination with Mixa's Soothing Toner. As for skin care creams, I use two. At mornings I always use (even under my makeup) Yves Rocher's Sérum Végétal which moisturises my skin perfectly, reduces shining and reduces wrinkles. And at evening I always use Mixa's Balancing Cream.





As for my makeup and favorite colors: I just love to use my Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 eyeshadow pallet. I think that the brown shimmery shades are just perfect for this time of the year. Beside it, I also use my Too Faced Cat Eye pallet and Makeup Revolution Give Them Nightmares pallet (you can read my review of it here).




For my lips I love to use moisturising lip balms, glosses or lipsticks. Most of the time I just use my Eos lipbalm. I also love my MAC Pervette and Marc Jakobs  108 Have We Met? lipstick. I also use Kiko's Lip Scrub to make my lips smooth.




I care for my hands with L'Occitane's hand cream with shea butter. It smells really nice and my hands are soft and moisturized.




I wrote that is getting colder, so I really enjoy my evenings in, under my blanket, snuggling with my fiancé. Of course there is always tea near by. Mostly I drink green and red tea with a hint of milk.

And to be a little romantic, candles must be present! I have many candles in my drawer but my favorite right now is Yanke Candle Lemon and Lavender. It reminds me of summer and I must admit that I miss it a little.

What are your fall favorites? :)
