Summer haul: clothes and shoes

26 comments

Hello everyone!



I just realised I haven't done a haul post in a while even though I have been buying lots of clothes this summer... this means that today is finally the day to show you all the things I bought in the past month, although some of them are left at my other home so you won't be able to see them I'm afraid (swimsuits...) :/

I personally love shopping for clothes, it has almost a therapeutic effect on me and I don't have to buy lots of things to feel good. Sometimes it's enough just to browse through new stuff and comment them with my mom afterwards.

This year I bought some stuff that was essential for me because I felt like I missed these things in my wardrobe and since the discounts are crazy during summer it felt like a nice opportunity to stock up on the things I needed.

So without further rambling, let's start shall we?


 

*This time I won't be writing a translation part because I don't think it's necessary for showing clothes. All the prices are stated above the products as well as the stores!

Yves Rocher - Sunkissed Effect Fluid Foundation

10 comments

Hello everybody!!


I missed writing posts so much, never thought this blogging thing would get to me as much as it did. But I am home now after a long vacation and for some time I will be here in the Internet world. The first thing I wanted to review since I came home was this foundation from Yves Rocher. I was instantly intrigued by the name of the product which suggested a foundation with a bronzing effect, something I haven't really seen so far. Since it's summer time I thought this product would suit me perfectly because all of my usual foundations are too light at the moment and my face/neck area doesn't match the rest of the body if I wear them. I also thought that it would be interesting for you guys to see this kind of foundation in these sunny days that are around us (or not, if you count all the rain that has fallen in Croatia recently).


Iznenadilo me koliko mi je nedostajalo pisati postove jer kad sam odlazila na more već mi je lagano bilo dosta pisanja i za diplomski i za blog i željela sam odmor od Interneta i svega vezanog uz tehnologiju. Ta želja je potrajala svega tjedan dana kad sam počela osjećati napast da moram što prije nešto napisati i eto, prva stvar koju sam odlučila recenzirati jest ovaj tekući puder brenda Yves Rocher.  Kod ovog proizvoda me prvenstveno privukao opis koji je sugerirao puder koji daje lagano preplanuli izgled koži, što se činilo savršenim za ove ljetne mjesece kad su mi moje uobičajene podloge pretamne i radi kojih mi lice bude svjetlije od ostatka tijela. Srećom, ovaj puder se našao u mojim rukama u pravo vrijeme i spasio me navedenih poteškoća. :)




First I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the product and that it offered me exactly what I hoped. My love for this foundation sprung instantly and I think this will be a constant repurchase from now on in my summery makeup hauls.
Yves Rocher is a french brand of natural cosmetics which covers a wide range of products - from skincare to foundations and even nail products. This has been the first item I have ever tried from this brand and I am already hooked. :)
The store for Croatian market can be found HERE and there you can see the catalogue of the products!
But let's get to the review! I decided to categorize the foundation in four categories - scent / package, shade, texture / coverage and longevity since it will be easier to follow the post that way.


Proizvod me ugodno iznenadio na više razina - miris mu je divan, tekstura jako kvalitetna i efekt preplanulosti je nešto što još nisam iskusila u puderima. Mislim da će ovo biti jedna od stvari koje ću iznova i iznova kupovati dugo nakon što potrošim ovu tubicu. Za one koji ne znaju, Yves Rocher je francuski brend kozmetike koja svoje proizvode temelji na biljnoj bazi i koji pokriva veliku količinu različitih proizvoda - od onih za njegu kože, kose i tijela do dekorativne kozmetike. Hrvatski web katalog i dućan se nalaze na adresi koju ćete naći klikom OVDJE i tamo su označene i sve cijene proizvoda kao i trenutni popusti. Ovaj puder je trenutno snižen 20% tako da požurite po njega dok još traje akcija!

Oriflame Swedish Spa Body Scrub

10 comments


Hello everyone!


Today I will talk to you about a body scrub that I have been using for the last few weeks. It happened accidentally that I recieved two body scrubs for testing purposes at the same time so I decided to try them out one by one. First was this Oriflame's Swedish Spa body scrub with ginger and almond extracts.

I have to admit to you, using body scrubs is not something I'm used to. I know it's supposed to be good for your skin to do a good exfoliation every now and then but it always seemed boring and unnecessary to me since my skin was really fine as it was even without scrubs. But then I had a guilt trip and I decided since it's summer time and my skin will probably need a bit of scrubbing for the upcoming tanning season, I should start using exfoliators like a good blogger. And I also wanted to see if its true that your skin feels different after using them.







Pozdrav svima! Danas ću vam prenijeti svoje dojmove o jednom posebnom pilingu za tijelo kojeg koristim zadnjih nekoliko tjedana. Slučajno se dogodilo da sam istovremeno dobila dva pilinga na recenziranje stoga sam odlučila prvo isprobati ovaj, a onda drugi (Elixir). Dakle, piling koji vam danas predstavljam dolazi od poznate švedske marke kozmetike Oriflamea, a naziv mu je Swedish Spa Exfoliating Body Scrub sa ekstraktima ulja đumbira i badema.

Moram priznati, nemam naviku korištenja pilinga za tijelo. Znam da bi njihovo korištenje trebalo biti dobro za kožu i da joj treba ponekad malo ribanja no iskreno uvijek mi se to činilo nepotrebnim jer mi je koža djelovala ok i bez pilinga. Kad god bih kupila piling, razočarala bi se i jednostavno ga prestala koristiti. Nisam im vidjela svrhu. No kako je krenulo pisanje bloga, a sad i ljeto i sunčanje, odlučila sam dati pilinzima novu šansu i isprobati upravo ovaj – na nagovor tj. preporuku cimerice. Također, zanimalo me da li stvarno postoji neki od kojeg bi mi koža tijela bila bolja ili drugačija nego što inače jest.

SAN natural cosmetics - review & first impressions!

16 comments

Hello everyone!





I managed to squeeze in a new post after all and I'm so happy that I did! Afterall it would be a shame not to use this current location for taking blog pictures. This review will be focused on a Croatian brand of natural cosmetics called SAN – prirodna kozmetika. They are a relatively new brand which currently makes three products – night cream, day cream and a special baby's/children cream. I was sent all three for reviewing purposes more than three weeks ago and now, after using it for the time mentioned, I think I can finally state my honest opinion about them.

Pozdrav svima! Ipak sam uspjela ugurati i jedan post u svoju svakodnevnu rutinu i stvarno mi je drago da jesam. Priroda ovdje je toliko lijepa da je šteta ne uslikati proizvode na suncu i pravom svjetlu, za razliku od mračne sobe u kojoj inače pokušavam izvesti čuda sa fotografijama. Danas ću vam predstaviti jedan novi brend prirodne kozmetike iz Hrvatske, a riječ je o SAN prirodna kozmetika proizvodima koji su polako već osvojili srca mnogih blogerica i kupaca. Trenutno proizvode tri proizvoda – dječju, noćnu i dnevnu kremu, a meni su velikodušno poslali sve tri na recenziranje i zato im se još jednom zahvaljujem! Koristila sam proizvode otprilike tri tjedna i mislim da je to dosta vremena za dati prve dojmove i mišljenja.






First something about the brand. SAN is a brand of natural cosmetics which uses only natural ingredients such as olive and almond oil, lemon extracts, cantarion and so on. Their products are not tested on animals and they don't contain artificial scents or silicones.They are new on the market but are expanding every day and I wish them all the best luck with it! :) Although I have never been using natural cosmetics before these, I am positively surprised by the quality and overall appearance of the creams. They are all effective in their tasks, their smell is amazing and the ingredients are similar to those of a cake or muffin, meaning, you could eat half the stuff listed there. Which is great and makes you wonder why would you ever need complex chemical formulas in your cosmetics if these ones work just as fine?

Prvo nešto o samom brendu kao i uvijek. SAN je brend prirodne kozmetike iz Čakovca koji koristi samo prirodne sastojke kao što su maslinovo i bademovo ulje, kantarion, limun, noćurak i slično. Ne testiraju proizvode na životinjama te oni ne sadrže parabene, silikone i umjetne mirise. Iako su novi na tržištu, šire se svakog dana po ljekarnama diljem zemlje i jako mi je drago radi toga! Želim im svu sreću u daljnjem poslovanju i radu. :)

Iako nisam koristila prirodnu kozmetiku prije ove, osim ponekih ulja, pozitivno sam iznenađena kvalitetom i kakvoćom proizvoda. Doista su na razini onih skupih, prehvaljenih krema koje se ne mogu pohvaliti ovakvim sastojcima. Zaista, sastojci podsjećaju na recept za neki kolač ili tortu s obzirom da je većina jestiva, a to dokazuje i ugodan i nenametljiv miris koji nema nimalo umjetnog u sebi. Nakon korištenja ovih krema zapitala sam se zašto i druge stvari u svojoj rutini ne okrenem na prirodnu stranu te što će mi svi oni proizvodi sa hrpom sastojaka od kojih pola ne znam što znače, ako i ovi funkcioniraju jednako dobro?


But first, let's see the results and opinions I had on each of these products!
