Counting the days before Christmas ♥

Christmas lights are already shining on the streets and we can finally say yes to the Christmas spirit! I just love how easy it is to lighten up the room with just a few little decorations and tricks: DIY Christmas tree (made by my mom, I love how creative she is!), golden garlands, hot chocolate and Christmas songs. Is there anything else I need for a perfect Christmas? I guess not, but we are halfway there are I still need to search for a few decorations from last year. Until then I’ll just stick to the decoration I already installed in my boyfriend’s apartment last week. Here is my list of Christmas essentials that always brighten up my mood in December:

strolling around town with a cup of mulled wine in your hands ♥ adding a few drops of orange essential oil to the evaporator  lighting up some candles  adding golden garlands and fairy lights everywhere you can  listening to a playlist of Christmas songs on Youtube 

Another essential is a cup of yummy hot chocolate! The recipe is very simple, even if you don’t have a hot chocolate mix in your cupboard: mix three teaspoons of corn starch and three teaspoons of cacao with a cup of cold vanilla rice milk and slowly bring to boil while stirring constantly. Then cook it on low heat for another few minutes, add a teaspoon or two of honey and pour in your favorite mug! 

//Božične lučke že svetijo po ulicah, zato lahko božično vzdušje končno prinesemo tudi v stanovanje! Res mi je všč, da lahko sobo enostavno okrasimo z nekaj trikci in okraski: naredi-sam božična smrečica (ki jo je naredila mami, res je ustvarjalna!), zlate girlande, vroča čokolada in božične pesmi. Ali sploh potrebujem še kaj za popoln božič? Verjetno ne, smo pa že na pol poti in še vedno moram pobrskat za nekaj okraski od lanskega leta. Do takrat pa bo letošnja dekoracija, ki sem jo prejšnji teden namestila v fantovem stanovanju, dovolj. Tukaj je moj seznam ključnih stvari, ki vedno polepšajo moje vzdušje v decembru:

sprehod po mestu z lončkom kuhanega vina  nekaj kapljic pomarančnega eteričnega olja v izparilniku  prižgane svečke  obešanje zlatih girland z lučkami, kamorkoli se da  poslušanje božičnih pesmi na Youtubu ♥

Še ena ključna podrobnost je vroča čokolada! Recept je resnično enostaven, tudi če pri roki nimate mešanice za vročo čokolado: tri žličke koruznega škroba in tri žličke pravega kakava zmešajte z lončkom hlandega riževega mleka z vanilijo in počasi zavrite, medtem pa neprestano mešajte. Nato še nekaj minut kuhajte na majhnem ognju, dodajte žličko ali dve medu in prelijte v vašo najljubšo skodelico! 

L’Occitanova garažna razprodaja

L’Occitane v Sloveniji prvič odpira vrata svojih skladišč in nam nudi edinstveno priložnost, da lahko prvič pobrskamo med policami, polnimi izložbene dekoracije, pohištva in opreme. Garažna razprodaja bo potekala med  21. in 29. oktobrom od 12. do 19. ure, vse izdelke pa bomo lahko kupili po simboličnih cenah. Udeleženke Beautiful Bloggers MeetUp konference smo lahko v prostore skladišča pokukale prve in si izbrale nekaj izdelkov, s katerimi smo polepšale en del stanovanja. Jaz sem se odločila, da šopek potonik in prikupno stekleno stojalo uporabim v kopalnici. In tukaj je še slika prej/potem! Zdi se mi, da je kotiček, kjer imam zloženo novo kozmetiko, zdaj res mnogo lepši!

Next week, L’Occitane will give a uniqe opportunity to take a look at their storage unit in Ljubljana. Their garage sale, which will take place between 21 and 29 October (12 – 19 p.m.), will offer decor and furniture from their collections for very low prices. Those who attended the Beauty bloggers conference were kindly invited to take a peek and choose a few items that would brighten up a part of our apartments. I went for a cute bouquet of peonies and a glass serving stand I’ll be using in the bathroom from now on. And this is my before and after photo! I may be biased, but I think my area where I put new cosmetics to try it out is now much much cuter!

Najlepša hvala L’Occitanu za povabilo na Garažno razprodajo, naslednji teden se je zagotovo še enkrat udeležim s prijateljicami!

I would like to thank to L’Occitane for inviting me to their Garage sale, I’m sure I will attend it one more time next week with my friends!

Mini Ikea haul

Unfortunately, Ikea does not have a shop in Slovenia yet, so we have to make a short jump across the border every time. Scandinavian minimalism is nevertheless always within reach and each visit of the web site or their shop convince me to buy something over and over again. I have been viewing Ikea collections of bowls and mugs for quite some time and managed to go shopping this week end. I am going to focus on my favorites ♥

V Sloveniji trenutno Ikeje žal še nimamo, zato je za vsak nakup potreben kratek skok čez mejo. Skandinavski minimalizem je tako vedno na dosegu roke in me ob vsakem ogledu spletne strani ali obiska trovine ponovno prepriča. Že nekaj časa sem skrbno ogledovala Ikeine kolekcije posodic in lončkov, vendar sem šele ta vikend dejansko odšla po nakupih. Izpostavila bom res najljubše stvari ♥

I have bought two beige and two pink POKAL mugs. They are bigger than average (they hold 4 dcl) and are great for tea or a big coffee. Next I got two pink bowls from the same collection and two beige bowls from the LUGN collection. I was so happy to finally get the mugs and the bowls that I tested both the same day! I prepared a coffe with homemade hazelnut milk (will make it again at the end of the week!) and a bowl of greek yogurt with a banana, blueberries, pices of coconut and nuts.

Vzela sem po dva bež in roza POKAL lončka. Večji so od običajnih, saj lahko držijo kar 4 dcl, zato so odlični za čaje ali veliko kavo. Poleg tega sem vzela še dvakrat po dve skodelici, roza iz enake kolekcije in bež iz kolekcije LUGN. Skodelic in lončkov sem se res veselila, tako da sem oboje sem že isti dan testirala! Pripravila sem si kavo z doma narejenim lešnikovim mlekom (konec tedna ga bom ponovno naredila!) in skodelico grškega jogurta z banano, borovnicami, koščki kokosa in oreščki.

Aaand because I “by the way” saw a package of four bigger white candles and a package of four glass pots for tea light candles, I carefully put both of them in the basket too. I am already waiting for my next visit and will enjoy the new bowls and mugs until then :)

Ker pa sem “mimogrede” videla tudi paket štirih večjih sveč in paket štirih steklenih lončkov za čajne svečke, sem v svojo košarico skrbno položila tudi to. Zdaj že komaj čakam naslednji obisk, do takrat pa bom uživala s svojimi novimi posodicami in lončki :)
