L’Occitane

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.

Arlésienne EDT, a perfect Christmas gift

img_9383img_9374img_9396
If you haven’t bought the perfect Christmas gift for your partner, dear family member or a friend yet, I may have a piece of advise for you! Most women love fragrances so why not surprise them with a gentle yet unique fragrance like the Arlésienne EDT by L’Occitane? I had not realized that my mom actually has the exact same fragrance up until I tried it out at home (hers came in a different bottle). Even when I smelled this fragrance for the first time, I had the feeling that I’ve encountered this scent not long before and my nose didn’t disappoint me! Arlesienne is perfectly blending musk and rose with violet and saffron which give this powdery fragrance some extra freshness. And although this is an EDT, I can assure you firsthand that Arlésienne is very long lasting! If you’re not thinking about a fragrance, you can still give some other products from the Arlésienne line a go, I saw some beautiful hand cream&lip gloss or body care sets, they would all make a wonderful gift.

However, if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind fragrance for men, I recommend checking out the Cedrat EDT. Cedrat and citrus notes are combined with woody base, thus creating a wonderful experience to its new owner! This line also offers several alternatives, such as aftershave products, shower and face gels and many others. All in all, a wide selection of products that will suite all tastes!

//Če za svojo partnerico, članico družine ali prijateljico še niste našli pravega darila, imam za vas majhen nasvet! Večina žensk obožuje dišave. Zakaj jih torej ne bi presenetili z nežno, a edinstveno toaletno vodico Arlésienne znamke L’Occitane? Dokler dišave nisem preizkusila doma, sploh nisem vedela, da ima moja mama točno to dišavo že nekaj mesecev (vendar v drugačni embalaži!). Vedela pa sem, da sem dišavo ne dolgo nazaj že vonjala, tako da me nos res ni izdal. Note mošusa in vrtnice se nežno mešajo z vijolico in žafranom, ki tej pudrasti dišavi dodajo še malo svežine. Čeprav gre za toaletno vodico, lahko iz lastnih izkušenj povem, da je izjemno obstojna! Če pa ne želite podariti dišave, lahko izberete tudi katere druge izdelke iz linije Arlésienne, v poslovalnicah sem videla prelepe sete kreme za roke in glosa za ustnice ter sete izdelkov za nego telesa, tudi to je izjemno lepo darilo.

Če pa iščete unikatno dišavo za moške, pa priporočam, da preverite tudi L’Occitanovo toaletno vodico za moške Cedrat. Note cedre, agrumov in lesne note bodo novega lastnika hitro popeljale v toplejše mesece! Tudi pri tej liniji se lahko namesto dišave odločite za nakup dezodoranta, izdelkov za nego po britju, gelov za prhanje in za obraz itd. Za vsakogar se torej nekaj najde!

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!
