these are a few of my favorite things

Good evening everyone! As one of the best seasons is just around the corner, I thought I'd share some of my new, and some of my all time favourite products that are necessary for my better being in that time of the year.
The first thing I absolutely adore and must have at all times is Dolce&Gabbana Light blue perfume! Wearing it makes me feel like a part of summer is always around me. There is hardly any other perfume I use as much as I use this one, and I can only hope it never goes out of sale!
When it comes to most of the face and body products, I keep it very simple. I told you once before that I'm pretty lucky when it comes to my skin and because of that, I try to avoid a variety of different products and try not to spoil my skin if it's not necessary. Like I don't want to start drinking coffee and then become addicted to it if I'm doing just fine without it, you know? Anyways, I normally only use Nivea basic cream, but some time ago Oblak commerce team sent me REN clean skincare cream for me to try and because I had a great experience with previous REN products, I was more than happy to take it for a "test drive". What I like the most about it and what's really important to me, is that it's smooth and it absorbs super quickly. So if you like that too, I definitely recommend it.
I've been searching for a deodorant that would suit me perfectly for a long time, and the search was finally over about two years ago when a friend of mine recommended me Clarins roll on deodorant and I honestly couldn't be more happy with it! Before that it was a different deodorant every week almost. This one is a little bit more expensive, but so worth it! I don't even think about trying anything new in this section and I don't think I ever will. I love how sometimes you find something so good and you feel so comfortable using it that you really don't ever have to think about changing it or whatever. Those products are rare I think, many products now days are so easy replaceable.
You might have noticed (and I've metioned once or twice before I think) that I normally don't wear any jewelry. I think jewelry is beautiful and most of the times that's the cherry on top with an outfitt, but at the end of the day, that's just not me. I feel the most comfortable with nothing but elastics on my wrist, so I was so exited when Kika from O twist elastics contacted me and sent me the cutest elastics ever! I got them in all colours possible and I change them all the time as you might have noticed on my instagram. If I could, I'd probably wear them all at once, but people would probably stare..I like to use them because they don't leave a mark on my hair as some of the elastic do when you let your hair down after wearing a bun or a pony. You know what I mean right? I hate it when I iron my hair, make a pony just for a split second and then have a straight line right in the middle. Ah problems! ;) I'm wearing the normal black and the sequin black O twist elastic on the picture bellow. Make sure to check out all the elastics on this page! :)
The last must item for me right now is Manhattan X-TREME LAST&SHINE lipstick. Sick colour!

I hope you find this post likeable and I'd love to hear what are some of your current favourite items! :) xx

I can't seem to avoid flourishing fields and being outside these sunny days. I love coming home from work and go straight to our garden, get some tan, play with my dog and listen to my mom yelling at me to come and help her do whatever she's doing at the moment. Just kidding, gardening is her thing and as much as I would like to help her, we both know it's better she does it on her own, because she knows how to do it best. Don't get me wrong, I do help around the house quite a lot, but if I'm honest, I much rather enjoy in the ambient than creating and maintaining it. Shame on me, I know ;)
I need to show you pictures of our garden soon so you will understand why I love spending as much time as possible there, it's like our own little paradise.

I'm off now, have a great weekend everyone! xx

P.S. I'm wearing one of my new O Twist elastics, I'll tell you more about it in the next post!

easy like Sunday morning

Sometimes, though, I need a little break from the real world and just get completely lost around my friends and family. Trying not to plan everything out, and go with the flow. If you know me just a bit, that probably makes you proud. These last four days were full of cool memories and also sad moments, which reminds me again to seize the day, be surrounded with the people you love and do what you love to do. It's such a cliche to say, but at the end of the day, that's what's important.
During these days I also didn't loose time ironing my hair, so even if just by that, you can definetely tell I invested my time in way more memorable stuff. I broke that today though and woke up at the first snooze to iron my hair. Old habits die hard, someone once said.

 With May finally marked on our calendars, the fun of crossing of days till the big holidays has officialy begun! Shopping online for the best summer items as well.

Have a greeeat day guys!
