As a beauty blogger, I sometimes get opportunities that I would not otherwise get – and sometimes, I get to visit places I probably wouldn’t find by myself. Last Friday, I had an amazing experience I want to tell you about.

On a gloom, rainy day, Tara, Gabi and I set of from Ljubljana via Kranjska Gora (more specifically, Gozd Martuljek) for an adventure. Greeted by sun on our arrival, we were in good spirits that were lifted even more by the kind and warm welcome from our hosts in Hotel Špik – Simona and Gordana.

Our hosts welcomed us in the Alpine wellness which, I’ll admit, I never heard of before I got the invitation for the event. First, we grabbed a bite of food to eat while Simona explained the concept of Alpine wellness to us. The food was organic and mostly made from home-grown ingredients. This is not a coincidence because healthy food represents one of the key benchmarks of wellness along with relaxation, beauty, cosmetics and nurturing the soul.

Do you see those cool drinks on the far right? They are made with glacier water which is pretty cool in my opinion. The hotel discovered a well in 2015 and after some analysis it became evident that this water is super clear since it doesn’t enter the ecosystem. They use it for pools and for different wellness rituals for face and body. I also got a feel for it, but more about that later.

The Alpine wellness in Hotel Špik is really unique and I can really imagine coming here with my girlfriends or for a hen night. There are five rooms through which you slowly move: confidence, love, creativity, harmony and love.

Today, I wanted to share an amazing experience with you. I was invited by Stillmark (company that represents Melvita, L’Occitane and Le Couvent des Minimes) in Slovenia and Nika Veger from Beautyfullblog to attend their garage sale. But this time, it wasn’t about cosmetics. No, it was about some other things that beauty bloggers need 🙂

Danes želim s tabo deliti edinstveno izkušnjo. Stillmark, podjetje, ki pri nas zastopa znamke L’Occitane, Melvita in Le Couvent des Minimes, in Nika Veger z Beautyfullblog sta me povabila, da se predpremierno udeležim njihove garažne razprodaje. Vendar pa tokrat nisem kupovala kozmetike, ampak nekaj drugega, kar lepotne blogerke resnično potrebujemo 🙂

Near to Bauhaus in BTC Ljubljana (enter the adress Cilenškova ulica 42 in your GPS) stands a warehouse. L’Occitane filled that warehouse with every single decorative item they used in their stores in the past 15 years. That’s right. Every. Single. Item. And I, along with my fellow beauty bloggers, was invited for a sneak peek and got to choose three items to take home. Thank you, L’Occitane! If you wonder what I got, follow me on Instagram (@low_maintenance_beauty) for a reveal in a couple of days!

There are also things for you to create something by yourself! // Najdeš lahko tudi stvari, s katerimi lahko kaj novega ustvariš sam/a!

I know that it’s Saturday and I don’t normally post on Saturdays, but the thing is Beautiful Bloggers Meetup (#bbmulj on Instagram if you want to check it out) under the motto Be yourself. Be an unicorn got me too excited to keep things to myself. And I bet you’re curious about what was happening, amirite?

Anyway, I need a few more days to really get my mind in working order so I can summarize everything that happened and my thoughts on the whole conference (which will be post #2, I suppose) and I still need to go through all the goodies that I got (obviously, post #3), so in the mean time, here are some photos to keep you entertained.

My breakfast – a fab cake pop!
Le Couvent des Minimes body sprays were available in the hall and in the toilets – for warmth, happiness or energy after the lunch, depending on whatever each girl needed on that particular day.
I am absolutely in love with the wonderful lights from Smile Concept Store. These and the roses by Box Of love really made the atmosphere in Hotel Lev magical – perfect for unicorns!
I love when people pay attention to the little details – my morning coffee came with a cute bow!
This is just a glimpse at everything that could be seen at the Avon stand – there were so many product my head was spinning!
sOliver stand showcasing their new perfumes (for him and for her) was absolutely gorgeous with all the flowers, bows and pastel colors
A good smoothie kept my stomach from being louder then the speakers 🙂

DM stand with Trend it up products was the only stand being presented by a man. Well done, DM!
Melvita stand was out of this world simply because it took me to another place and time – in all that crowd, I got complete attention and felt like I was the only person in the world while they were talking to me. I <3 it!

That’s it for now, I’m afraid. But remember – there is more to come 🙂
