Review: Philips Lumea, prvič.

Če se spravimo seštet ves čas, ki ga ženske zapravimo za puljenje, depiliranje in britje skozi mesec, bi kaj hitro ugotovili da ga ni malo. Če poleg tega seštejemo še vse račune za raznorazne voske, britvice in podobno opremo, pa se lahko kar primemo za glavo. Ja, za lepoto mora vsake toliko potrpeti tudi naša denarnica.

Sem ena izmed “srečnic” z genom za hitro rast (sicer močnih in zdravih) las, na kar sem definitivno zelo ponosna. Če je moj mesečni račun za frizerja majhen, pa se to toliko bolj pozna pri seštevku za depilacijske pripomočke. Sej veste, kam pes taco moli, ne? No, pred kratkim sem dobila priložnost, da šopingiranju za britvice naredim konec. Kako? Z Philips Lumeo.

 Review: Philips Lumea, prvič.

Lumea je aparat, ki s pomočjo “Intense Pulsed Light” ali intenzivne utripajoče svetlobe prepreči ponovno rast dlak. Je nekako poenostavljena verzija laserskega odstranjevanja dlak – neboleča in primerna za domačo uporabo (kaj več o njej si lahko preberete tudi na Philips Facebook strani). Kako učinkovita pa je res, bom preizkusila kar na sebi. V brošuri sicer piše, da naj bi se prvi rezultati pokazali po 2, optimalni pa po 4-5 tretmajih. Ste za eksperiment? Jaz sem! Tokrat samo za uvod, mesec pa lahko pričakujete nov, pravi report. Misija se začne: zdaj!

p.s.: Lumeini posti na blogu sicer spadajo v sklop “review-jev”, niso pa sponzorirani, temveč sem Lumeo dobila v uporabo prek Philipsove nagradne igre. Mnenje bo izključno moje. Če bo kakšen post preveč navdušeno napisan, je to navdušenje pristno. :)

Winter Shopping Wishlist

It’s no secret I have gene to be a proper shopaholic and I never denied that. Usually the opposite, I embrace it. I generally believe that if you really like or need something you should buy it, if your budget allows you of course. By that I don’t mean you should blindly buy everything on sight, but also that’s okay if you take a plunge on something unnecessary once in a while. Everything in moderation, right? On that note, I present you with my latest shopping wishlist. Looking at it now, it’s actually pretty basic and stripped down to essentials. p.s.: Sense the black/white theme?
 Winter Shopping Wishlist

Long sleeve tops – when you realize there’s literally only one basic long-sleeve top hanging in your closet and winter is approaching, you know you have a problem.

350 Winter Shopping Wishlist

(Faux) Leather leggings – the best and comfiest option for winter and that little shine makes them even better.

350 Winter Shopping Wishlist

Sneakers – a pair of good, versatile (hi-top) sneakers are a key piece of any shoe collection!

350 Winter Shopping Wishlist

High waisted jeans/pants – After owning a pair of high waisted pants, I never want to go lower again.

OOTD: All Black with Alexander Wang x H&M

Went, saw, scored! I admit, the hype got me this time. It was right under my nose and I went for it. It’s not every day you can get Alexander Wang around here. Pieces were great, seemed good quality, prices weren’t that sky high (with some exceptions of course) and I let myself indulge in a mini fashion treat. Oh, what’s in the backpack? You’ll see.

Now on to my all black outfit. Remember those times we wore dresses and skirts with jeans? I loved it then and I still love it now. Although, now I’m going with skinny jeans underneath and not wide ones like I used to do in high-school (oh boy, am I glad there aren’t any pictures left of that disaster). It felt a bit old school at first, but I’m in love with it!

Weekly inspiration

When I saw this quote, I started thinking what would I absolutely love to do if anything could be done. Honest answer? Just what I’m doing now! Going to school, having classes about subject that interests me, working in a firm towards my “dream-job”… It’s intense, but I wouldn’t change anything. Yes, I must say I feel pretty lucky right about now!

As far as the fashion go, I have to start implying this quote more often. Right now as it’s not that cold yet, it’s perfect time to experiment with layers. Get few last uses of lighter clothes until winter fully kicks in. I’m in this grey mood right now that goes just fine with the grey weather outside, so I think there’s nothing wrong with embracing it.

So, I’m asking you the same question. What would you love to do the most? Tell me!
