LUSH HAUL – SALE SEASON!

21. 1. 2018

I’m slowly starting to hate cold weather, but January sales made it a bit more bearable. Every December I make a plan about all the things that I wish to buy on sales and, as it happens every single year, Lush was one of my top priorities ;) Their selection was waaay more extensive than the previous years, but I came prepared and knew exactly what to look for. I got myself the biggest bottle of Snow Fairy shower gel, just because I am a big hoarder of shower gels at heart. Although I’m getting better and try to use things up, I just couldn’t go by and leave it there! The scent is divine, sugary and sweet with a hint of vanilla. And tiny little glitter, of course, you just feel like a relaxed fairy after your morning shower! My next exciting product is Sikkim Girls. Not a fragrance I would normally go for, but its oriental vibe with a hint of jasmine and flowers got my attention. It is insanely longlasting and my clothes smell so nice for days! Last summer I fell in love with the Lush sun care products. I wanted to try something new, so I went for the Sesame Suntan Lotion. At the store they told me it smells like Snickers and I can partially agree, but I mainly smell tahini, haha! It has a nice creamy texture and looks like it will absorb into the skin quickly, so I’m looking forward to using it at the seaside. Last but not least, no Lush purchase is done without their bath bombs! I went for Plum Snow and actually received My Two Front Teeth from my bestie :) They both smell amazing and I already tried the second one, it has such an intense color! Well, that’s all from my part, have you done any damage at Lush sales this year, too? :)

// Zimskega mraza sem se počasi naveličala, vendar so ga januarske razprodaje naredile malo bolj znosnega ;) Vsak december razmislim, česa se bom lotila na razprodajah, in Lush je bil kot vsako leto praktično na začetku seznama. Njihova izbira je bila letos precej večja kot prejšnja leta, vendar sem prišla pripravljena in sem približno vedela, kaj želim kupiti. Najprej sem se odločila za največji gel za tuširanje Snow Fairy, enostavno zato, ker jih z velikim veseljem hrčkam v kopalnici. Čeprav mi gre bolje in izdelke poskušam porabiti do konca, ga kar nisem mogla pustiti v trgovinici! Vonj je božanski, zelo sladek s kančkom vanilije ter majhnimi bleščicami, tako da se po jutranji prhi res počutim kot zelo spočita vila! Zelo sem navdušena tudi nad dišavo Sikkim Girls, ki sicer ni med mojimi tipičnimi vonji, vendar obožujem njen orientalski pridih z jasminom in cvetličnimi notami. Res je zelo dolgo obstojna in moja oblačila božansko dišijo še nekaj dni! Lansko leto sem se zaljubila v Lusheve izdelke z zaščitnim faktorjem, tako da sem tokrat izbrala Sesame Suntan Lotion. V prodajalni so mi rekli, da diši po Snickersu, mene pa prej spominja na tahini :) Ima zelo prijetno, kremasto strukturo in zdi se mi, da se bo hitro vpil v kožo, zato komaj čakam na poletje. No, ni pravega nakupa brez Lushevih bombic za kopanje, zato sem izbrala Plum Snow, My Two Front Teeth pa mi je podarila prijateljica :) Obe enkratno dišita in drugo sem že uporabila, ima res prelepo barvo. Ste tudi ve našle kakšno malenkost zase? :)

CHA fruit tea

16. 1. 2014

Prijateljica mi je za božič podarila prikupno zapakiran CHA sadni čaj. Njihove čaje sem običajno pila celo zimo, v zadnjih nekaj letih pa sem na njih popolnoma pozabila. Nekaj jih imam zagotovo še spravljenih, zdaj je odličen čas, da jih porabim :)

A friend of mine gave me a lovely package of CHA fruit tea for Christmas. I used to drink their tea throughout winter, but I completely forgot about them in the last few years. I’m certain a few of them are stored somewhere, now it is a great time to use them :)

Okus mojega čaja je babičin vrt, odličen sadni čaj, za katerega sploh ne potrebujemo medu, saj je že sam po sebi zelo sladek. Vsebuje hibiskus, jabolko, bezgove jagode, rozine, robide in jagode.

The flavor is called “grandma’s garden”, an excellent fruit tea that is so sweet by itself that we don’t need honey. Its ingredients are hibiscus, apple, elderberries, raisins, and strawberries.

 

V košarico za čaj sem dala približno dve čajni žlički. Na CHA spletni strani piše, da čaj prelijemo z vrelo vodo in pustimo 5 minut. Poleg je pripisano, da zaradi močnih aromatičnih sestavin v skodelicah za sadne čaje ne pripravljamo tudi zelenih ali črnih. Ha, to sem pa prvič slišala! Bom od sedaj naprej poskušala paziti :)

I put two teaspoons of the tea in the strainer. On the CHA web site it says that we should pour the tea with boiling water and leave it for five minutes. Furthermore, it says that green and black teas shouldn’t be made in the cups for fruit tea, because it contains very strong aromatic ingredients. Ha, I heard it for the first time! I’ll try to watch out from now on :)

Po petih minutah odstavimo košarico s čajem in uživamo v odličnem sadnem okusu! :)

After five minutes, we remove the strainer and enjoy this excellent fruity flavor! :)
