Birthday wishes

birthday wishes

My birthday is coming up and I can`t help myself but to gather all the gifts i would happily buy for my awesome 20th!

All the scarfs are from Zara. All the clothing items are from Zara too. A random crap notebook is from Asos. Ren cosmetic is my next buy. Illamasqua eye shadows are so pigmented and also we just got it in Slovenia, so blue is my favourite. A plum blusher would make my fall/winter days more special, this one is from Smashbox.

Review: Planter`s cosmetics

New cosmetic brand in Slovenia, called Planter`s, is worth the hype. I tried their Repairing cream Natural & Young and I recommend it to everyone. It suits all skin types and you can use it on your face-hands-body as a moisturizer. One thing that caught my attention is that it is totally natural and not tested on animals! It is made out of rice oil, linseed oil, karate butter, aloe vera, almond oil,... I think natural oils are one of the best ingredients to have in your skincare, because they moist your skin and regenerate it without having to add alcohol, paraben, silicone to get the desired effects. What really got me excited is the texture of the crème and the felling when you are applying it. It is similar to body butter but actually totally different, it just melts on your skin and sinks in well. My skin was left felling moist and nourished, I could smell the scent of the crème for a while. I will definitely check out more of Planter´s products. if you are not convinced to try the creme yet, see how amazingly stylish the crème pots are, on Planter´s homepage you  can find different designs, they also have a christmas edition of the pots that I´m thinking of ordering for my Christmas gifts.

Pieces are not expensive and they have some key pieces for fall/winter season. the colours are not bright and colourful and if you don´t bother shopping, just go into the store and look for these pieces.

Too much pears!

This Wednesday I came back from Stockholm and saw that my sister did a pear jam with cardamom. It´s delicious, I am really glad that my sister contributes the recipes and pictures of her project, cause I am jut not in the kitchen as frequently as she is. If you want the recipe, just post yes in the comments.

Wonder woman

Opposite side of the slippers is covered with a special thing so they aren´t slippery.
 necklace with leather braids, looks like blueberries.
 I take it back, this one looks like blueberries.
 snood in use

My mom makes the prettiest things with wool. I just love the slippers they re so cute. I am a proud owner of the snood in dark brown and also a bobble hat that goes with it. She has an etsy shop in the making coming up, so when it is done I will post a link to it. Fall and winter are near and this products are just perfect. Today I am planning on making macarons and can´t wait to post the recipe, so stay tuned.
