I Love Cosmetics - Minty Choco Chip lip balm

14 comments

Is it unusual to think about lip balms in the pre-summer period? I definitely think not. Despite the fact that our lips need hydration all year long, with the hot temperatures rising it's nice to have some sun protection as well. The lip balm I'm reviewing today isn't made for summer time but I find it perfect for the transition period we're currently in. I Love products are special in their approach to consumers; they're fruity, with fun packaging and an array of different sorts. The mint chocolate combination is one of their newer ones and I have to say, one of my personal favorites. It reminds me of After Eight chocolates which are at the top of my sweets list.

Da li je neobično razmišljati o balzamima za usne u pred-ljetnom periodu? Mislim da nikako nije. Izuzmemo li činjenicu da nam usne trebaju hidrataciju tokom cijele godine, sa porastom temperatura potrebno je razmišljati i o zaštiti od sunčevih zraka. Balzam kojeg danas recenziram nije namijenjen ljetnom razdoblju, ali mi je odličan za ovo tranzicijsko vrijeme kad nas i dalje pogađaju vjetroviti i kišni dani, a ponekad i nešto hladnije temperature. I Love proizvodi specifični su u svom pristupu potrošačima - voćnog sastava, zabavnog pakiranja i sa mnoštvom različitih verzija istog proizvoda. Kombinacija mentola i čokolade jedna je od novijih u postavi, a meni se osobno jako svidjela. Podsjeća me na After Eight čokoladice koje su mi jedne od omiljenih slatkiša.



I Love Minty Choco Chip lipbalm is packed inside a nice, simple tube which hides a wonderfully decorated product with a green heart engraved in the common white balm texture. I expected mediocre hydration for some reason, but it turned out to be quite good, in fact, one of the better products I've tried recently. I will definitely keep it in mind for the winter time ahead. The flavor is not as strong as I imagined – you can taste the mint, and it stings a bit when applied to lips – like a cooling sensation, which is a very fun feeling to be having. I personally like it, it reminds me of green Maybelline's Baby Lips with the same flavour.

I Love Minty Choco Chip balzam zapakiran je u jednostavnu plastičnu tubicu koja krije divno dizajniran proizvod sa zelenim srcem ugraviranim u bijelu teksturu balzama. Očekivala sam osrednju hidrataciju, no ispala je zavidno dobra, zapravo moram reći da je ovo jedan od boljih proizvoda u kategoriji kojeg sam isprobala. Definitivno ću ga imati na umu za zimski period. Miris i okus nisu jaki kako sam ih zamišljala, mentol se osjeti, malo pecka usnice, hladi ih, a tko god je probao zeleni Baby Lips od Maybellinea zna o čemu govorim i kako je to specifičan osjećaj.


For the summer time, I would of course advise a product that has at least some SPF protection in it. However, for the periods that you're spending indoors, working or studying, I don't see why this one wouldn't be just fine. Regarding the satisfying moisture attributes, I would even wear it in the winter time. It's a lot more hydrating than Baby Lips, but I still have to try the famous Nuxe balm to adjust the grading scale.

Za ljetni bih period ipak savjetovala proizvod s barem nekakvom SPF zaštitom. No, za vrijeme koje provodite u zatvorenim prostorima, dok učite ili radite, ne vidim razloga zašto ne biste koristili i ovakav proizvod. S obzirom na vrlo zadovoljavajuću hidrataciju, nosila bih ga i zimi. Osobno mislim da daje puno više njege od Baby Lips proizvoda, ali i dalje ću morati isprobati famozni Nuxe balzam kako bih ga dostojno usporedila.

Essence Cinderella collection by Disney

40 comments
Happy Sunday to everyone reading this post; I'm hoping you're having a lovely weekend! It finally stopped raining today so I decided to make this day even better by writing this post. I'm sure you're all by now familiar with the newest Disney-Essence collaboration collection called simply "Cinderella" - and I'm sure this particular collection will leave impact on both younger and older makeup users. I was only sent a few items from this gorgeous set, but you can check out the full collection here! 
I have to say that this is one of the most beautifully designed makeup collections I have seen so far and it just made me feel like a kid again, watching my favorite cartoon fairytales and fantasizing about a different, better life. 

Ugodan vikend svima koji čitaju ovaj post i nadam se da se lijepo provodite! Konačno je prestalo kišiti pa sam odlučila dan još malo više uljepšati pisanjem ovog posta. Sigurna sam da ste do sad svi upoznati s najnovijom Essence-Disney suradnjom koja je rezultirala jednom od najljepših makeup kolekcija do sada - Cinderella. Sigurna sam da će se ova kolekcija svidjeti podjednako i starijim i mlađim naraštajima s obzirom na raznovrsnost i tematiku. Essence Hrvatska tim mi je poslao nekoliko stvari na recenziju, a cijelu kolekciju možete pogledati ovdje.
Moram reći da mi se stvarno svidio dizajn i ideja iza cijele ove suradnje te da me kolekcija odmah vratila u neka prošla vremena, kad sam bila dijete i često gledala ovakve crtiće, maštajući o tome da i ja budem princeza :)


This blush is so incredibly cute in design that I believe I'll keep it as a souvenir long after it is spent. The color is perfectly suited for my preferences - a warm, peach rose that makes cheeks naturally blushed. I think that the consistency and the durability are the same as all other Essence blushes, to me it's completely satisfying but I won't say it couldn't be better. However, regarding the price range and the gorgeous packaging of the limited offered collections, I would highly advise trying it out!

Ovo rumenilo je toliko preslatko da ne znam tko mu može odoljeti, a i mislim da ću ga zadržati za ukras dugo nakon što ga potrošim! Ilustracije iz originalnog crtića Pepeljuge ocrtane su na gornjem dijelu proizvoda, što ga čini posebnim u mojoj kolekciji. Boja savršeno odgovara mojim uobičajenim favoritima - topla, breskvasto ružičasta koja na licu izgleda super prirodno. Mislim da su mu konzistecija i trajnost iste kao kod svih Essence rumenila; meni osobno sasvim zadovoljavajući, no neću reći da ne bi mogli biti i bolji. No uzmemo li u obzir i cijenu i jedinstvenost dizajna, ne vidim zašto ne isprobati i počastiti se ovim primjerkom :)


I had no particular expectations of this highlighter, apart from the fact that it has the most beautifully engraved roses pattern all over the product. Being used to Mary Loumanizer highlighter by the Balm, I completely stopped purchasing other products of the sort. However, this one proved to be quite good, in fact, I don't think it's that much worse from the aforementioned the Balm product. It's a bit more powdery in consistency, not velvety, but the effect is, as you can see on the above picture, quite nice and I don't see a reason why anyone would dislike it. The pigmentation is medium, so you can't easily apply too much of the product (which is great when it comes to highlighters) and the color is neutral, silvery white, just like Cinderella's shoes (it's called "The Glass Slipper" btw :) if I had to choose one product out of the whole collection it would be this one!

Nisam imala nikakva očekivanja od ovog highlightera, osim činjenice da me odmah na početku oduševio dizajnom s ugraviranim ružicama. No kako sam navikla na Mary Loumanizer od the Balma, prestala sam u potpunosti kupovati druge proizvode sličnih kategorija. Moram priznati kako mi se ovaj highlighter jako svidio, nadmašio sva očekivanja i stvarno sam dobila proizvod koji osim što lijepo izgleda, super obavlja funkciju kojoj je namijenjen. Konzistencija mu je malo drugačija od Mary Loumanizera, nije toliko baršunasta, nego više brašnasta i pomalo se trusi. No na licu je jako lijep i prirodno izgleda, tako da ne vidim razloga da se nekom ne bi svidio. Nije previše pigmentiran tako da ne treba strahovati od pretjerivanja. Naziv mu super odgovara - The Glass Slipper - i zaista je obojan kao Pepeljugina cipelica. Da moram odabrati jedan proizvod iz cijele kolekcije, bio bi to ovaj :)



I have to say at the very start - not a huge fan of lip glosses! They tend to be sticky and colorless, so I don't see the point in wearing them. I'm quite fond of Rimmel's Apocalips lipsticks, but that's something else. I think that these glosses would be more suitable for younger generations and if I had a daughter I would definitely buy her one for school. They're neutral, almost invisible, but taste amazing (fruity, like cherries) and I think younger girls would find it cute and appealing. However, for me, they're just not enough pigmented and I don't think I will be wearing them that much.

Moram reći na početku, nisam fan sjajlila za usne - najčešće su ljepljive teksture, bezbojna tj. jako slabo pigmentirana i ne vidim smisao u tome da ih nosim. Jedini proizvodi ove vrste koje volim su Rimmel Apocalips ruževi/sjajila i Maybelline Color Elixirs sjajila. Mislim da bi ovaj proizvod bio primjereniji mlađim generacijama i da imam kćer vjerojatno bi joj ovako nešto kupila za školu. Sjajila su neutralne boje, gotovo nevidljiva, divnog voćnog okusa, stoga mislim da bi se svidjela mlađim djevojkama. No, za mene ipak nisu dosta pigmentirana i neću ih zasigurno često nositi.



Tell me - how did you like this limited edition collection? Are you a fan of Disney?

Which item was your favorite?

ZAFUL - Summer Dresses Wishlist

16 comments

Summer is coming! It has become pretty obvious that the temperatures keep rising and with them – our clothing choices continue to change into more relaxed and comfortable outfits. While searching for summer dresses I came across Zaful website and found that they have many gorgeous items to offer. I was searching for business appropriate summer attire and many of their dresses fit that description; but there are also many casual ones in their web offer. I've noticed that their collection is a bit more „trendy“ and unique when compared to regular clothing stores – such as H&M.

Ljeto nam se približava! Postalo je dosta očito da s porastom temperatura dolazi i potreba za novom, laganijom i lepršavom odjećom. Dok sam tražila ljetne haljine, pronašla sam i ovu stranicu koja nudi mnoštvo modela koje nisam viđala po drugim online dućanima, a za super cijene - Zaful. Prvenstveno me zanimala poslovna odjeća primjerena ljetu (to je vjerujte teško pronaći), a mnoge njihove haljine uklapaju se u tu ideju, no uz takve, nude i one neozbiljnije modele koji su super za odlaske na kave, na plažu, za izlaske. Primijetila sam da im je ponuda stvarno raznovrsna i nekako posebnija od one dućana u koje često idem (npr. H&M).


„Zaful was established with a clear vision: to provide the very latest in compelling designs for the fashionably hip along with providing exceptional value, quality, and superb customer service. We offer a select choice of clothing, shoes, accessories and more to deck out your wardrobe with style.“


As I said at the start of this post – I've decided to create a wishlist of dresses I would wear in the summer time so I hope you will enjoy my suggestions and perhaps find something that you would buy for yourself! These four dresses are the best options that I managed to find on their website - at least when it comes to my personal taste & clothing style.

Kao što sam rekla na početku, odlučila sam kreirati wishlistu - listu želja onih haljina koje bih sama nosila te se nadam da će vam se svidjeti moji prijedlozi i ideje, da ćete među njima pronaći nešto što je i po vašem ukusu! Ove četiri haljine najviše su mi se svidjele od sveg drugog ponuđenog na njihovoj web stranici, barem kad uzmem u obzir vlastiti ukus i stil u odijevanju.

1. Black Half Sleeve Dress 22.28 $

It's been said for quite some time now that every woman should have a small black dress in her wardrobe! Well I personally don't have one and I think it's time to change that this summer. This dress seems like it would fit perfectly on most body shapes and it's also not that expensive. I love the fact that it's sexy, but not too vulgar or trashy in any way. A perfect dress for evening cocktail parties. Check it out here!

Svi smo čuli za izjavu da bi svaka žena trebala u ormaru imati barem jednu malu crnu haljinu. Nažalost, osobno nemam niti jednu takvu, a stalno sam u potrazi za idealnom! Ova mi se jako svidjela i mislim da zadovoljava sve potrebe: nije prekratka, nije previše otvorena, a opet izgleda privlačno i nekako "sexy". Neću lagati, sviđa mi se i cijena i mislim da se isplati za ovakav standardni komad odjeće. Pogledajte je na ovom linku!



2. Stripe Color Elastic Waist dress 19.85 $

This dress immediately caught my attention. It's quite colorful, but classy and sophisticated and I would wear it to work with a nice blazer over top of it. It looks comfortable and perfectly fits my usual fashion style. It's great that it comes with a necklace so you won't have to worry about accessories while wearing it! Click here to see it on the Zaful website!

Ova haljina mi je odmah zaokupila pažnju - predivnih je boja, šarena, a opet nije pretjerana i klasičnog je, sofisticiranog kroja. Mislim da je skroz pristojna za sve prigode i nosila bih ju i na posao sa nekim sakoićem preko. Izgleda jako udobno i lepršavo pa mislim da je idealna za moj dosadašnji ukus; a i vjerujem da bi bila ugodna za nošenje ljeti. Super je što dolazi s ogrlicom pa se ne moramo brinuti oko nakita! Ovdje ju možete pogledati - klik!



3. Ruffle Tie-Up Short Sleeve Dress 22.17 $

I think that this is one of the prettiest dresses on the whole Zaful website. It may seem a bit vintage or granny like to some of you, but I personally adore it. To me, it looks like something royal family would wear on important occasions. I love the small bow and the navy color choices. It comes in two versions: white and green, but I personally like the white one better. Click here to see it online!

Mislim da je ovo jedna od najljepših haljina na cijelom Zaful siteu. Možda se nekima bude činila previše starinska ili bapska čak, kako se to kod kaže, ali meni je baš divna i preslatka. Izgleda kao nešto što bi nosile princeze iz kraljevskih obitelji na važnim događanjima. Svakako mi se sviđa i odabir boja, bijela i plava uvijek super pašu jedna uz drugu i odmah podsjećaju na ljeto. Dolazi u dvije boje, meni je osobno bijela ljepša, ali i zelena je posebna :) Pogledajte je ovdje!



4. Ruffle Backless Solid Color Dress 13.80 $

This particular dress caught my attention because of the lovely back-part which is cut out and looks incredibly interesting and attractive. I know it would only suit those with no back fat and it takes real courage to wear this sort of outfit but, to me, it looks amazing! The color is screaming summer and I can already see it paired up with Essie's nail polish in the shade Cute as a button. Check it out here!

Ova haljina mi se najviše svidjela radi predivnog izreza na leđima koju ju čini posebno zanimljivom i privlačnom. Znam da bi pristajala dobro samo onima koji imaju savršeno isklesana leđa te da ne dopušta ikakve nedostatke na tom području, ali mi je svejedno bila previše posebna da bih ju ignorirala na ovoj listi! Boja je predivna, vrišti ljeto i mislim da bi super pasala uz Essie lak u nijansi Cute as a button. Online verziju proizvoda možete vidjeti ovdje!



One of the most important things to emphasize is that Zaful offers FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE which makes it even more attractive to customers from distant countries such as mine is. The prices are excellent, beyond affordable and here you can take a look at all of the products that they have to offer - click!

Ono što je najvažnije za istaknuti - Zaful stranica nudi BESPLATNU DOSTAVU DILJEM SVIJETA i to ju čini još zanimljivijom nama koji smo nažalost daleko od svega! Cijene su odlične, a ovdje možete pogledati cijelu ponudu odjeće i drugih haljinica - klik!


Hope you enjoyed the post!

Alp Stories - 100% Pure Organic Damask Rose Floral Water

14 comments

Floral waters – yes or no? Have you ever used them and what were your experiences with them? I have to say that this was my first time using such a product and I had no idea what to expect. The only similar item I have used so far has been L'Occitane's face mist and I was quite satisfied with it. Alp Stories products have already amazed me as you could've read in one of my previous reviews where I mentioned their lavender collection (body lotion & bath salt). I have already completely used the bath salt – which is saying something – and I am considering re-purchasement at the moment. The Damask Rose Floral Water is not at all different when it comes to standard and quality. As I mentioned in my previous post – all Alp Stories products are:

  •  Parabens free
  •  Mineral oils free
  •  Artificial colours free
  •  Synthetic fragrances free
  •  Silicones free
  • CRUELTY free
  • VEGAN


Cvjetne vodice – da ili ne? Jeste li ih ikad koristili u svojoj rutini njege kože i kakva ste iskustva imali s njima? Moram reći da mi je ovo prvi put da sam koristila ovakav proizvod, ako izuzmemo maglicu za lice sa smiljem od L'Occitanea s kojom sam bila vrlo zadovoljna. Alp Stories proizvodi su me odmah oduševili te sam ih nahvalila u postu o kolekciji od lavande – spominjala sam sol za kupku i mlijeko za tijelo. Dovoljno govori činjenica da sam sol za kupku već u potpunosti potrošila, pokazala se izvrsnom za umorne noge nakon napornog dana na poslu (zahvaljujući opuštajućim svojstvima lavande i eukaliptusa) te razmišljam da ju ponovno nabavim. Cvjetna vodica organske damask ruže u potpunosti prati standard kvalitete te je, kao i svi Alp Stories proizvodi:

  • Bez parabena
  • Bez mineralnih ulja
  • Bez umjetnih bojila
  • Bez sintetičkih mirisa
  • Bez silikona
  • Nije testirano na životinjam
  • VEGANSKI proizvod 


100% Pure Organic Damask Rose Floral Water comes in a 250ml bottle and is basically imposible to spend. I've been using it non stop since day one and I still haven't noticed any significant changes in the amount that's left inside. I'm using the floral water as toner/serum, before applying my daily cream and for additional hydration during the day. It instantly makes my skin fresh and dewy, while keeping the moisture at optimal levels. However, it's easily absorbed by the skin so there is no fear for the people who tend to get oily – this is almost the same as if you washed your face in some rose petals infused water.

100% organska cvjetna voda damask ruže dolazi u bočici od 250ml i praktično ju je nemoguće potrošiti. Koristim ju na dnevnoj bazi od dana kad sam ju dobila i vidim vrlo male promjene u militraži. Cvjetnu vodicu koristim kao serum tj. tonik, prije nanošenja dnevne kreme i nakon umivanja gelom ili sredstvom za čišćenje lica, kako bi mi pružila dodatnu hidrataciju i njegu. Koža mi je automatski svježija i zadržava onu zdravu, djevojačku vlažnost koja nam svima nedostaje uslijed promjena u temperaturi i suhog zraka unutrašnjih prostora. Vrlo se brzo upija, kao obična voda, stoga oni s masnom kožom nemaju razloga za strahovanje – mislim da bi za njih bila izvrstan dodatak u dodatnoj njezi kože.


I love the smell of the Pure Organic Damask Rose Floral Water, it's a true rose scent, perfect if you like those vintage rose sorts, that you probably could've found in your grandma's garden. It's quite strong, but fresh at the same time, and definitely not a smell that everyone would love. I personally enjoy it and it makes me happy, after application it feels as if though I've washed my face in a fresh rose bouquet. The 100% Pure Organic Damask Rose Floral Water can be purchased in all Alp Stories stores for a reasonable price of 10,00 $.

Obožavam miris Organske cvjetne vode damask ruže, radi se o onom klasičnom, pomalo starinskom mirisu ruža kakve su se znale naći u vrtovima naših baka, vjerujem da se svi takvih vrsta sjećaju. Miris je dosta intenzivan i nije za svakoga, ali ako ste ljubitelj cvjetnih, posebno ružinih parfema, bit će vam drag. Meni je osobno izuzetno ugodan i svjež, nakon nanošenja imam osjećaj kao da sam se upravo umila u cvjetnim laticama, što je stvarno lijepo i umirujuće. Organska cvjetna voda damask ruže može se kupiti u svim Alp Stories dućanima po odličnoj cijeni od 79,00 kuna.
