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 :)

Body Lotions for Spring&Summer

We are gradually entering a warm and hot season and should focus on our skin all over our body to an even greater extent. Since we will be more and more exposed to the sun, it is important to take additional care for our skin (besides drinking lots of water!). The selection of skincare products is wide and adjusted to the needs of each and everyone. I am going to show you three lotions that I currently use and really do their job.

Počasi prehajamo v toplo in vroče obdobje, zato je pomembno, da pozornost v še večji meri posvetimo koži po celem telesu. Glede na to, da bomo vedno več na soncu, je pomembno, da za kožo (poleg rednega pitja vode!!) še dodatno poskrbimo. Izbira izdelkov za vlaženje kože je res velika, tako da lahko vsaka najde kremo ali losjon, ki ji popolnoma ustreza. Predstavila vam bom tri losjone, ki jih trenutno največ uporabljam in dobro opravijo svoje delo.

The first is the Aldo Vandini body balm. On the package it says that the balm absorbs very quickly and I have to admit that this is the first lotion that abosrbs in no time! It has an amazing tamarind and ginger scent and is great to use with the shower gel from the same line. I use it in the morning, because it absorbs into skin really quickly and does not stick with the clothes.

The second one is the Balea oil lotion with macadamia oil for a very dry skin. The consistency is very thick and greasy, but this is not surprising since it contains 20 % oil. The scent is very gentle and is thus great to use in the evening. I usually massage my legs and my belly to get rid of cellulite :P

The third one is the Balea shimmery body lotion. Besides the fact that it contains small golden glitter, I really like that it absorbs into skin in no time. So, before you head out, you just quickly apply it on your arms, shoulders and under the neck! Plus, the lotion has a very pleasant scent that will stay on for some time. It will be great in summer when I’ll have a bit darker skin tone, the glitter will shine on the evening sun … cannot wait for summer :)

Prvi balzam je znamke Aldo Vandini. Na embalaži piše, da se balzam takoj vpije v kože, in moram priznati, da je to prvi losjon, ki se dejansko ne packa! Vonj je božanski, diši po ingverju in tamarindu in je super v kombinaciji z gelom za prhanje z enakim vonjem. Sama ga uporabljam zjutraj, ker se res takoj vpije v kožo in se ne sprijema z oblačili.

Drugi je Balea oljni losjon za zelo suho kožo z makadamijevim olje. Losjon je zelo gost in malo masten, vendar ni to nič presenetljivega, ker vsebuje 20 % olj. Za uporabo je odličen zvečer pred spanjem, saj ima zelo nežen vonj. Kožo na nogah in trebuhu si še malo zmasiram, da bo šel celulit stran :P

Tretji pa je Balea losjon za telo z bleščicami. Poleg majcenih zlatih bleščic mi je všeč tudi to, da se v kožo zelo hitro vpije. Preden se odpraviš ven, se samo na hitro namažeš po rokah, ramah in dekolteju! Ima tudi zelo prijeten vonj, ki te bo spremljal še nekaj časa. Odličen bo poleti, ko bom imela še malo temnejšo polt, zlate bleščice bodo sijale na večernem soncu … komaj čakam poletje :)

New in: Ready for summer!

IMG_9453

Tadaa, shopping for summer clothes has begun! I cannot wait the moment when I will be able to walk around in shorts, skirts and dresses … I am tired of trousers and sweaters! My favorite piece so far is the skirt with an aztec pattern. I never shop in Tally Wail, but this skirt caught my eye almost instantly. It is quite tight and I really like that I can tuck in a loose shirt in the front. I did the same thing with an H&M white top and I am sure it will be great with some jeans or shorts. I bought two bandeaux in C&A, because the shirt is too low in the front to use just a bra. Two are in a package, one black and one in color.

Takole, nakupi za poletje so se že začeli! Komaj čakam, da bo dovolj toplo, da se bom sprehajala v kratkih hlačah, krilcih in oblekicah …. naveličana sem že dolgih hlač in dolgih rokavov! Trenutno mi je najbolj všeč kratko krilo z azteškim vzorcem. V Tally Weilu sicer ne nakupujem, vendar mi je to krilo takoj padlo v oči! Zelo je oprijeto, všeč pa mi je, da imam lahko zgoraj bolj ohlapno majčko, ki jo na sprednjem delu malo zatlačim. Tu sem enako naredila s H&M majčko brez rokavov. Prepričana sem, da bo super s kavbojkami ali kratkimi hlačami .V C&A sem kupila dva bandeauja, ker je majčka preveč odprta, da bi spodaj imela modrček. V pakiranju se dobi dva, enega črnega in enega barvnega.

The shorts are from Zara and I got them on sales, but I’m not sure whether I’m going to wear them anywhere else than on the seaside :P Honestly, I’m not used to wearing shorts in public, so this will definitely be a summer challenge for me! Last but not least, I got bikinis from H&M. Since each piece cost only € 4,95, I didn’t even think about it and just bought them. They have a lot of designs this year and I am sure that I will buy another pair very soon :)

Kratke hlače sem kupila v Zari na razprodajah, vendar nisem prepričana, da jih bom nosila še kje drugje kot ob morju :P Če po pravici povem, v javnosti nisem navajena nositi kratkih hlač, tako da bo to moj letošnji poletni izziv! Nenazadnje pa sem v H&M kupila tudi kopalke. Ker je vsak kos stal le 4,95 eur, sploh nisem preveč razmišljala in sem jih kar kupila. Letos imajo zelo lepe modele in prepričana sem, da se bom kmalu vrnila še po kakšne :)
