advent calendars

This year, the advent calendar madness started early and caught me off guard. Last year, I wrote my post on advent calendars in November and got much criticism about being way to late – so this year I’m super early. Down below, you can check out some of the advent calendars that caught my eye this time around. This post may contain some spoilers!

ASOS (www.asos.com, 74€)

Asos advent calendar will most likely be the one I get for myself this year. There are some really cool brands in there that I’m looking forward to trying out, such as Starskin, Smasbox, Cowshed, Carmex and so forth. It’s easy on the eyes and also has a special surprise in the last window. Inside, you’ll find a code for 20 % off your next purchase which may come handy during the year.

THE BODY SHOP (50€ for 24 Days of Beauty)

Word on the street is that The Body Shop is finally coming to our beautiful little Slovenia and I really hope it happens before December. The rest of you can probably get in online. They have a couple of advent calendars available, the cheapest one will cost about 50 €. I really like Body Shop as a brand and I think that advent calendars are a great way of sampling different products, making future purchases much more simple. Am I right or am I right?

beauty product wishlistAnother month had gone by, my mailbox is full of PR and my fellow bloggers are writing such yummy posts that it’ll probably be difficult for me to resist a bit of shopping. Naturally, I don’t need all these things, but it’s nice to pamper yourself once in a while, don’t you agree? If you haven’t already, don’t forget to participate in my giveaway with Nivea Slovenija that’s currently running on my Facebook. You and two of your friends can win great hand creams, great for the coming cold autumn days.

Caudalie French Kiss balm (12,49 €, 7,5g)

I really like Caudalie as a brand and they always surprise me with great new products. This time, my radar picked up the French Kiss lip balms with antioxidants from grape seeds that offer moisture and protection to our lips. I like the darkest shadde, Additiction, the best.

Natura Siberica Cleansing foam (7,04€, 150ml)

Natura Siberica is a brand I haven’t tried yet, but I guess I’ll have to considering the recommendations by Monika from Sugarlove blog. The cleansing foam with golden root has antioxidative effect and is supposed to be super gentle to the skin around our eyes. Since I have really thin skin around my eyes (as most people do) and seeing tha I just ran out of my last make-up remover, I’ll probably give this foam a try.

Tonymoly Panda’s Dream White Sleeping Pack (okrog 13€, 50g)

Tonymoly is a Korean brand with the cutest packagings – I admit that I buy half of their products based on looks alone. This moisturizer contains bamboo extracts that moisturize the skin and have a brigtening effect. I have nothing but good experience with Asian skincare so I’ll probably enjoy this one as well (also, it comes highly recommended by Mateja from Mateja’s beauty blog). View Full Post

Če spremljaš moj Instagram, potem veš, da sem ljubiteljica vsega lepega. Tu ne govorimo samo o lepi šminki ali lepih in zdravih laseh, ampak tudi o lepem plašču, torbici, nalivniku, skodelici in vsem drugem, s čimer lepoto vnašam v svoje življenje. Pomemben del tega je tudi nakit. Pri tem izredno rada podpiram slovenske ustvarjalce, saj menim, da v naši deželici pod Alpami mladi umetniki z zanosom ustvarjajo izdelke, na katere bi morali biti ponosni vsi.

Izredno sem bila torej vesela, ko mi je Mateja, ustvarjalka pod imenom Vila Perlica, poslala ličen paketek, v katerem sta se skrivala prstan in verižica z medaljonom s stekleno kapljico. Oba sta z menoj preživela poletje in uspešno prestala tudi nekaj testov z dežjem in otroškimi prstki, zato ti jih danes z veseljem predstavljam, saj lahko iz prve roke potrdim, da sta resnično kakovostna.

Vila Perlica spletno stran najdeš *tu*, Mateja pa svoje čudovite izdelke redno predstavlja tudi na svoji Facebook strani – *tu*.

MEDALJON S STEKLENO KAPLJICO (10 €)

Sem že omenila, da je vsaka verižica z medaljonom unikat? Sama sem pri nakitu izbirčna in se mi zdi pomembno, da ne nosim enakega, kot vsaka druga ženska na cesti. Vsa stekelca na medaljonih so ročno barvana z različnimi barvami in laki. Mateja pri delu uporablja prahce, bleščice in druge snovi, s katerimi ustvarja posebne efekte, kot so prelivanje in spreminjanje barv.

Tudi poslikava je narejena ročno – si prestavljaš, kako mirno roko mora imeti ustvarjalka za kaj takega? Ker je tako stekelce kot vzorec ročno delo, pomeni, da je vsak izdelek neponovljiv in edinstven – takšen, kot si verjetno želi biti vsaka od nas.

Verižica je dolga 50 cm, kar se mi zdi ravno dovolj. Medaljon lahko seveda prestaviš tudi na drugo verižico, v kolikor bi ti bolj ustrezalo, jaz pa ga bom pustila kar na tej, saj se mi zdi ravno pravšnja glede na velikost medaljona.  View Full Post
