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.

I can’t believe that the Beautiful Bloggers meetup is really over for this year. I had an even better time this year, but truth be told, I need a day or two to process everything before I can summarize my thoughts into a nice, long post.

But I can talk for a moment about the theme of this years’ meetup: Be yourself … be an unicorn! Or, as someone put it even better: Be yourself. Unless you can be an unicorn – then always be an unicorn! I already spoke many times how I feel that it’s difficult to tell one beauty blog from another, since most of us write about similar products, shoot similar photos… there is no diversity.

And I plan to change that! I am making a promise to myself that I will make my blog different, unique and stand out from all others. I plan to keep that promise!


I was kind of motivated to write this post by L’Occitane. They are soon releasing a new Arlésienne collection and kindly gave us a sneak preview of the collection on Friday. The little package contained the Arlésienne Velvet Hand Cream and the Arlésienne delicious gloss, but more importantly, a challenge to be different. What was the challenge, you ask?

Well, I’m glad you asked. We all got a long, pink ribbon with the following instruction: “The decorative ribbon that Arlésienne woman (women from Arlese in the south of France) puts into her hair speaks a story about a bold woman, who is completely free. Each ribbon is unique and speaks its own language – the pattern on it is as unique as the woman who wears it in her hair.”
