Opportunities for Slovenian beauty bloggers to connect in an informal way are rare, but this December we once again joined forces and organized a Secret Santa. Or better said, since we are all girls, Secret Clara. This year I again took on the role of organizing the whole thing which means I could not participate myself, but I enjoyed watching gifts other received and I was happy with them.

Slovenske lepotne blogerke smo se tudi letos povezale in organizirale Skrivnega božička. Bolje rečeno, glede na to, da smo sama dekleta – vse smo postale skrivne božičke. Tudi letos sem naše blogerke organizirala jaz, kar pomeni, da sodelovati nisem mogla, ampak sem z veseljem gledala darila drugih in se veselila skupaj z njimi.

We set no limits or boundaries regarding the gifts – the girls can give whatever they want to each other, but it is important that they get to know the person they’re gifting to as good as possible. That way they can really put together a gift that is pretty, useful and makes the recipient happy.

Pri obdarovanju ne postavljamo nobenih meja in nobenih omejitev – dekleta se lahko obdarujejo, kakor želijo in s čimer želijo, pri čemer pa je seveda pomembno, da svojo obdarovanko čim bolje spoznajo. Tako jo res lahko obdarijo z darili, ki so lepa, uporabna in se jih obdarovanka iz srca razveseli.

Even though organizing such a project takes quite some work, it suits my character perfectly so I enjoy doing it. I’d like to show you some of best gifts that Slovenian beauty bloggers received from their Secret Claras this year.

Čeprav je z organizacijo takšnega projekta kar nekaj dela, takšna naloga ustreza mojemu karakterju, zato se je lotim z veseljem. Tebi pa bi rada pokazala nekaj najlepših daril, ki so jih dekleta letos prejela od svojih skrivnih božičk.

Santa stopped by our house and I must admit that I was more excited to see Baby M open his gifts than I was about opening my own. Not because my gifts wouldn’t be great, but I was more happy to see him all excited, tearing the paper, playing with the ribbon and gushing over his building blocks and stuffed animals. But as I’ve been good all year long (or so they say), Santa also got me a few presents of my own.

Božiček se je ustavil tudi pri nas in priznam, da sem se letos veliko bolj veselila daril malega M-ja, kot pa svojih lastnih. Pa ne zato, ker moja darila ne bi bila super, ampak mi je veliko več pomenilo njegovo veselje, ko je trgal papir, se igral s trakci in navduševal nad kockami in plišastimi igračami. Ker pa sem bila bojda celo leto pridna, je božiček vseeno nekaj prinesel tudi meni. 

The first gift was from me to myself, namely my L’Occitane advent calendar that certainly didn’t disappoint. I’m stocked up on hand creams for the year and I’ll also get to try some products that I haven’t tried before. I’m looking forward to a new calendar next year.

Prvo darilo sem si podarila kar sama, in sicer moj L’Occitane adventni koledar, ki me tudi letos ni razočaral. Sedaj sem za celo leto preskrbljena s kremicami za roke, preizkusila pa bom lahko tudi kar nekaj izdelkov, ki jih še poznam. Veselim se že, da bom naslednje leto preizkusila kakšnega novega.

Two Blogmas in one? Yes, that’s life. I planned my posts up front but quickly realized that baking a potica and entertaining a nine month old child is too stressful, and making photos and writing this post at the same time would be an impossible task to fulfill. But still – in our house, we eat potica long into January so it’s never too late for a good recipe.

Dva Blogmasa v enem? Da, takšno je pač življenje. Seveda sem objave načrtovala vnaprej, vendar pa sem ugotovila, da je peči  potico in zabavati devetmesečnega otroka hkrati preveč naporno, da bi zraven še fotografirala proces in napisala objavo. Pa vendarle – pri nas doma potice jemo še daleč v januar, zato za en dober recept ni nikoli prezgodaj.

This recipe comes from Hungary and is a bit different because you won’t be using leavened dough but potato dough. You need about an hour for preparation and 45-50 minutes for baking. The amount of ingredients in this recipe is intended for two portions, because I prepared walnut potica and a potica with poppy seeds. If you only want to prepare one just cut the ingredients in half. This dough is also very good with cheese fillings and can be used for dumplings and similar dishes.

Ta recept prihaja iz Madžarske in je nekoliko drugačen, saj se ne uporablja kvašenega testa, ampak krompirjevo testo. Za pripravo potrebuješ približno eno uro in še kakšnih 45-50 minut za peko. Vse količine so navedene za dvojno porcijo, saj sem naredila in makovo in orehovo potico – v kolikor želiš pripraviti samo eno, jih enostavno razpoloviš. To testo je zelo dobro tudi s kakšnim sirovim nadevom, uporabiš pa ga lahko tudi za svaljke, cmoke in podobno.
