Planted - Skin Care


Planted - Skin Care
Autumn it's pretty time of year. However we are facing a lot of changes: loosing day light, it's getting colder and colder and a lot of people are ill and spreading their viruses. I have a flu for the past week and I felt a bit better today so I decided to do a whole body pamper. I got four products from Planted: oil cleanser with black cumin and raw honey, nutrient rich face cream, whipped body cream and boosting coffee scrub. I have to say all these four products smell great and are natural just the way I like it. I started with a scrub, it left my skin feeling super smooth. I like all sort of oils and I don't mind products being oily but if you do I  think little goes a long way. While I had scrub on I started with oil cleanser and OMG it is so nice! Its so gentle and light on the skin, felt really good. After I got out of bath after using the scrub and oil cleanser I felt moisturized! After that I tried whipped cream which like a boosting scrub little goes a long way. It nicely melts in the hands before the application. Scrub and whipped cream nicely complimented each other because I can feel nicely moisturized skin all day long. Face cream is amazing just like the oil cleanser is very light on face absorbs well. I didn't need to use primer before I put my foundation on as my face as it felt very smooth. I think the oil cleanser is my new favorite! Lovely products and easy on the eye to display in the bathroom as it looks pretty.

Autumn with Clipper Teas

Autumn with Clipper TeasI always love beginning of autumn. Days are lovely, it just that cold crispy air slowly creeping in on us just like Halloween.  Maybe it is just me as I am behind of everything at the moment haha. I saw a girl dressed for Halloween as a witch and I thought no way?! Already?! Anyway I love that cosines of the fall. Throws, candles, hot drinks, films... long lie ins would be great too :)) I always look for healthy, natural boosts throughout the year and Clipper Teas is a healthy way of keeping me warm. And honestly the more I know about them the more I like them! They use unbleached tea bags. Who on earth needs a beached tea bag?! Seriously, bleached?! If not Clipper Teas I would never have known! Seriously, bleach is so harmful why on earth someone would think about bleaching tea bags...?! Anyway, I got four new flavours from Clipper Teas to try and one of the them is Rise & Shine, which is my favourite at the moment. It's with mate, lemongrass and lemon verbena. Actually, at one point of my life quite few years ago I use to drink mate drink with lemon and it was my favorite for a long time! I don't know why I stopped I love this drink and to see it in the Clipper Teas range is really great and I am definitely hooked. And they also have a great selection of organic teas to try and it's always a plus for our environment. I am definitely looking forward to get all the antioxidants from my healthy teas!

Early Autumn


I love autum it's a season of transition in a sense that summer is full of idealism and endless possibilities and autumn is the start of the dreams and hard labour for it. All holidays are coming to an end and  that's where the hard work begins. It is a very special season there is loads of colours around and days are pretty, but in the evening you can feel that cold and crispy air there, you kind of want to snuggle up in blanket with a coco and watch Netflix.

Recently, I have been mentioning quite a lot about wanting to do a Charity Shop Haul. This is not it. However I found this amazing stripy shirt dress in the charity shop and it was love from first sight. I just fell in love with the colour of it and if it wouldn't of with me this blog post would be DIY how to make something else as I would of bought it anyway. I might have to change my blog name soon to a charity shop gal as I got so many amazing items in there and more blog posts to come with the pictures of the outfits:)

Sporty Summer Outfit

Sporty Summer Outfit

As I mentioned before I am newly born fan for high waist trousers and jeans. I just find it so comfortable to wear no more lifting after bending over, no more worries. These trousers are quite weird in a seance that they look pretty smart before I put them on after I put them on they look of some sort of material and straight leg leggings. I think it depends with what I will be wearing them with. I found them in a charity shop and originally they were from next. Recently, I got loads of second hand goodies! I am planning to do charity shop hall. I think a lot of bloggers should pay few good visits in there as I found some amazing stuff, one of them is retro skirt witch will definitely will be on my blog soon.

The Casual Summer Look


The Casual Summer Look

Hello, this look has been sitting on my desktop for a while which I can't really make any excuse why it's been there but never mind, here it is. I could probably say one of the classic casual looks is blue jeans white t. And that's exactly what I was going for. I just spiced it up a little :) ripped blue jeans and interesting sleeve white top which in fact was present from my boyfriend. I have to say he knows me well:) very proud of him as at the moment it's one of my favorite tops. And my black back pack goes with everything it's definitely everyday essential.

Inspirations For Three Special Occasions

I have some good news to announce: I am going to be an aunt at the end of the month (or could be beginning of September) which I am very exited about! I have been shopping for that baby like for my own. My sister is very picky (let's hope she doesn't read this :)) So I have to be very selective in what I get for her baby. So I put a little gift guide together from Uncommon Goods. The company is great and I love what they do. Not many companies can say that they use suppliers who recycle or hand make their items and use organic materials. You can even find out who the crafter is! As I worked before for a big retail company and sustainability is not a high priority for them. I know most big retailers are about making money and not really caring for their staff or the environment but Uncommon Goods is a whole new story :) Which is fantastic I think! Anyway I should go back to the baby gift guide;  I made a little collage from the items I love. I think I've got a great selection of items as who doesn't love mermaid or Pocahontas little boots? And these little baby knee protectors are so practical and cute! To be honest I could do with a mermaid tail like this instead of the throw once the autumn arrives.

Inspirations For Three Special Occasions.

I thought it would be good for me to do a Gifts For Men as well. As I think it can be very difficult sometimes to find something interesting on a special occasion! Me and my boyfriend had 9 year anniversary last June so next one will be 10!!!  So for sure I am already shopping around for something very special doesn't have to be big as we going to go somewhere nice but I still need something for sure! I think making a collage is great, it just gives a bunches of ideas. Its always good to know what they like as well, if they are into tasting drinks or sports or both. My boyfriend is into photography so  this pinhole camera which has to be constructed would keep him very busy for sure! I think it is definitely on the shopping list! Oh and if it works I could do some fun blog pictures - that would be amazing!!! Cute animal socks if they love animals is always a good idea and keeping boyfriends fresh and smelling nice always helps :)


Inspirations For Three Special Occasions



And I think I should do a third gift guide as 3 is the lucky number :). Next May I am going to a big wedding and I am supposed to say a speech in front of  120 people... ohhh I don't know about that but we will see haha :D Maybe it will happen but maybe not :) (I hope they won't read this blog post either). Anyway, Personalized Wedding Gifts collage gives some good ideas to help me stay inspired! Popcorn (of course to go with some other presents) is great present for couples who like to stay in and watch lots of movies and the paper could be cutely personalized for example: for many cosey evenings spent together or something like that. But of course you have to be in a certain relationship to give couple popcorn as a present :) A lot of couples these days have present lists or asks for money to contribute to their honeymoon but something a little extra special and personalized would surprise them and make it more special as it shows how much you know them and how much though you put in their special day.

Summer Is For Dresses

Summer Is For Dresses

Summer is wonderful (I am thinking of a song sounding something like that). I always feel like summer is the time for new adventures and activities or just lazing about by the beach or the lake. It always feels like endless possibilities and new beginnings in September. Maybe I am being sentimental just because I am going on holiday and after that I start a new job. YEY! well done me! I am quite looking forward to start working for a charity! I bought homeless women lots of sausage rolls the other day and felt like I did a good deed. Hopefully the job will feel the same! 

Anyway, let's get back to the post theme! I just get carried away sometimes :) OOTD: I love wearing dresses in summer, especially when the summer days are so nice; it makes me feel feminine and it's so comfortable. I kind of paired it in shade of black which I think went down very well. I got this back pack quite recently and I am in love. It's so comfy, I don't know where was I before? :D You will probably get bombarded with pics of the back pack haha :) and I think I will get some more :)

Flavor That Sings


Flavor that Sings


Hello as I haven't written a blog post in a while I think it is nice to come back with a delicious post into the blogging world! My routine has changed a lot as half a year ago I changed my job and as you all know something like that puts you straight out of balance. Just only now I started feeling that everything is settling which is definitely a nice feeling. Anyway I am very exited that I got invited to Clippers Tea Lounge in London which I have attended. My Illustrator friend INKBERRYPRINT who meant to come with me had to cancel the last minute so my poor boyfriend felt so bad for me and came along as he would of prefer coming to the beer tasting haha :) Anyway in the end we enjoyed it very much!
I came in and kept on saying wow as the venue was so pretty and there was so much work put in to organisation, something like that even for a couple of hours. Food, as you can see in the pictures, looked so delicious so everyone was just making sure to snap loads of pics before we all ate anything. which I thought was very encouraging from the Clippers Team. Evening was very enjoyable we got to know about the science side of taste, aroma and flavor. Definitely left London more educated on the subject. And the last but not least we had a live band to finish a very pretty evening which I danced to. Not many of us did, I think a few tequila shots would of helped to loosen up the audience:)

Dressing Room - Mood board

The Vision:

Just imagine walking into a spacious dressing room in the early morning with beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. You look around the room and sunshine is bursting in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. You open the curtains and its beautiful outside: close to the forest, birds flying by, scent of blooming flowers in the spring time air. The room fills up with fresh ground coffee you are carrying around. This luxurious and private hideaway space is yours with dominating colours of white, green and grey/black. The air is so fresh and light from the filtrating houseplants. The space is yours to relax in and read a book in the evening or gently wake up in the morning. 

Dressing Room - Mood board

About The Project:

 I wanted to create a beautiful master dressing room with lots of windows inviting the sunshine in. The style of the room is modern classic with chandeliers and house plants, light plain walls, modern furnishings like a sofa and dressing table. I wanted to craft a mood board with different materials and take loads of pictures to create a digital mood board. I used different materials on the crafting a board to create the sense and  feeling of the emotion which can be felt and the windows can be opened, the smell of  roasted coffee beans can be smelled on the mood board. The idea of the project came from ARHAUS, who inspired me to create my ideal dressing room and describe how would it look like. I used their chandeliers in my mood board as I thought they looked incredibly gorgeous (check out other pendant lighting options here). I took on this project with enthusiasm as I had loads of ideas how I would like my perfect dressing room to look like. The main challenge of the project for me was the crafting skills which I do not have, and my mood board does not look anything like I imagined. However, what I have plenty of is imagination and I managed to bring the main concept  of the original idea I had. For me it might sound lame but this project was a journey rather than a destination.
