Autumn favorites #2017

img_6868img_6875img_6879
You know what they say, better late than sorry! Autumn has flown by like crazy, but it was still a good season regarding new cosmetics. I bought quite a few product that I’ve been really loving since day one and I actually managed to use them a lot as I was at home for more than three weeks due to two consecutive colds!

my top five are:

The main star of the Autumn favorites is without doubt the Makeup Revolution Pro HD Luxe eyeshadow palette. I already wrote about it extensively here – a beautiful combination of mattes and shimmers in different shades make for a versatile selection that can be used for every single occasion. Since then I received three more of their palettes and each of them is just as amazing! The second most exciting product is the Nuxe Rêve de miel, one of the most recommended lip balms by Slovenian bloggers. I was never that interested in it, but one day it just caught my attention in the store and I had to give it a go. Oh, how right was I to buy it, this is such a luxurious lip product! It really nourishes my lips and has a very pleasant smell. It also works great as a lip primer, especially on the days I decide to wear matte lip sticks. On the same day I actually also bought the Catrice Glow Stick from the Dawid Tomaszewski LE, a very pigmented and creamy highlighter with silver and white glitter. The outer packaging is very pretty and elegant, but the inner patent unfortunately looks very cheap and can quickly become messy. I believe this is due to its triangular shape, everything would be much easier if they went for a standard round stick :) Nevertheless, I really enjoy using it and will be perfect for the upcoming Holiday season.

Cold weather calls for hand protection and this is where The Ritual of Sakura hand cream by Rituals comes in. This cream is so nice to use as it quickly sinks into the skin due to its lightweight consistency. And the scent is obviously lovely, it’s Rituals we’re talking about! Plus, there is quite a generous amount of the product in the tube which means it will last for months. Last but not least, I’ve been using the Kneipp Regeneration Enzyme Peeling Powder so much this autumn. This is a very gentle enzyme peeling that comes in powder form. You just mix a small amount of powder with several drops of water, mix it and apply it on the face. The skin on my face feels very soft, but other than that I haven’t noticed any difference in how my skin looks. But it’s a nice evening treatment and I don’t have to worry that my skin would get any reactions, which is obviously a big plus!

The power of Kolagenlift

Medex sparkling kolagenimg_7455img_7440Although I am a huge supporter of healthy foods for maintaining our health, I’ve come to realise there’s only so much we can do for ourselves with our diet. My 30s are only a few years ahead, so I’m trying to educate myself about anti-ageing as much as I can before it will be too late, haha! What I love about a Slovenian company Medex is not just their wide range of products mainly based on honey, but the fact that they have also created some powerful supplements that can help us maintain our youthful appearance. I’ve heard many amazing things about their collagen and I cannot wait to start using my collagen mixture Kolagenlift with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. It is supposed to reduce wrinkles, improve the skin’s elasticity and have a positive impact on our hair and nails. Of course I will keep you posted and I intend to take it religiously for several months as I really want to see the end result.

Medex has also given me a promo code for my readers! You can use 98JDCKNU for a 15 % discount from their website until the end of 2017. And a cute idea for a healthy NY’s eve beverage: a Sparkling Collagen bubbly! These cute cocktails were served at the Beauty conference and they were a true hit. All you need to do is add one scoop of your favorite Medex collagen powder to your glass and top it with some sparkling water or sparkling wine. And it instantly turns pink, what a treat!

Čeprav trdno verjamem, da je zdrava hrana izjemno pomembna za naše zdravje, sem v zadnjih letih ugotovila, da lahko s prehrano le delno vplivamo na nekatere spremembe. Ker se mi trideseta leta počasi bližajo, se že zdaj poskušam čim bolje izobraziti glede anti-ageinga, še preden bo prepozno, haha! No, pri Medexu mi je zelo všeč njihov velik nabor izdelkov, ki so narejeni na osnovi medu. Še bolj všeč pa mi je to, da so ustvarili kar nekaj učinkovitih prehranskih dopolnil, ki nam lahko pomagajo ohranjati mladosten videz. O njihovem dopolnilu s kolagenom sem slišala že veliko dobrih mnenj, zato komaj čakam, da začnem uporabljati mešanico Kolagenlift z vitaminom C in hialuronsko kislino. Zmanjšala naj bi gubice, izboljšala elastičnost kože in imela dober vpliv na lase in nohte. Seveda vas bom o tem obveščala, Kolagenlift pa nameravam redno jemati nekaj mesecev, ker me zelo zanima končni rezultat.

Pri Medexu pa so mi prijazno dali promocijsko kodo za moje bralke in bralce! Kodo 98JDCKNU lahko uporabite za 15% popust na njihovi spletni strani do konca leta 2017. Imajo pa tudi simpatično idejo za bolj zdrav novoletni koktajl: Sparkling Kolagen! S takimi koktajli smo blogerke uživale na Lepotni konferenci, pripravi se ga pa izjemno enostavno. V kozarec stresete eno merico vašega najljubšega Kolagenlifta in jo prelijete z mineralno vodo ali s penino. In takoj se obarva rožnato, kako luštno!

When the first sun rays meet the sky

img_7397img_7366img_7421For years, L’Occitane has been known for feminine and sensual fragrances. They really stepped up their game this year and made our Christmas shopping even easier as they have recently released a new eau de toilette Terre de Lumière L’Eau from the Terre de Lumière collection. However, this fragrance is a complete opposite to the more powerful and aromatic eau de parfum and comes in an elegant bottle with light pink details. Its powdery and floral scent celebrates the moment when morning light meets the night sky and gives a special touch to the start of our day. I love how beautifully the scent develops on my skin and follows me everywhere I go for the rest of the day.

when the first sun rays meet the night ♥

Mornings are without a doubt my favorite part of the day. I firmly believe that our morning rituals set the mood for the whole day and have a big impact on our mindset. Although winter time can be challenging, particularly in the evening, the biggest highlight of the day is that dawn starts around the time I wake up. When the skies are clear, the couple of minutes before the first sun rays meet the night are incredibly magical. The shades of pink, light orange and the first hints of baby blue really make me wonder, is there anything that could ruin such a beautiful start of the day? Even writing about this gives me a special warm feelings inside my chest … and I wish to know why we are constantly stressing about literally the smallest of possible things when there are magic, peace and beauty on the reach of our hands every single morning. And thanks to L’Occitane, we can be reminded of these peaceful moments throughout the whole day.

L’Occitane je že leta znan po svojih ženstvenih in čutnih dišavah. Letos pa so se še posebno potrudili in nam olajšali nakupe božičnih darilc, saj so pred kratkim k svoji kolekciji Terre de Lumière dodali novo toaletno vodico Terre de Lumière L’Eau. Nova dišava je popolnoma drugačna od močnejše in bolj aromatične parfumske vodice, na voljo pa je v elegantni steklenički z rožnatimi detajli. Njene pudraste in cvetlične note slavijo trenutek, ko se jutranja svetloba zlije z nočnim nebom, in nam na poseben način polepšajo začetek dneva. Res mi je všeč, kako lepo se dišava razvije na moji koži in z menoj ostane na vsakem koraku.

Ko se prvi sončni žarki zlijejo z nočjo 

Jutra so nedvomno moj najljubši trenutek dneva. Trdno verjamem, da naši jutranji rituali začrtajo naše počutje skozi celoten dan in imajo velik vpliv na našo miselnost. Čeprav je zimski čas precej težek, zlasti ob popoldnevih, je meni zelo všeč, da se jutranja zora prične ob podobnem času, kot zjutraj vstajam. Ko je nebo jasno, so prve minute, preden se prvi sončni žarki srečajo z nočjo, resnično čarobne. Odtenki rožnate, svetlo oranžne in svetlo modre barve mi dajo misliti, kaj sploh lahko uniči tako prelep začetek dneva? Že pisanje o jutranji zori v meni zbudi poseben občutek topline … in sprašujem se, zakaj se neprestano obremenjujemo z najmanjšimi možnimi stvarmi, ko pa imamo vsako jutro na dosegu roke tako čudovite, mirne in lepe trenutke. Najlepša hvala L’Occitanu, da lahko od zdaj naprej tako lepi občutki z nami ostanejo skozi celoten dan.
