Tutorial: Happy December Nails

While November is slowly saying goodbye, it’s time for the jolliest month of the year – December. That time of the year when we pull all the stops on decoration, delicious food and let out our creative elf. It’s perhaps still a bit early to go and decorate Christmas tree, but it’s definitely not too early to have festive mani-pedi. If your nails are usually pretty plain, holidays would be perfect to experiment a bit more.

I challenged my creativity skills with recreating basic patterns, using color palette provided by Julep. Browsing through their website, you find tons of beautiful nail-polish shades. For this Christmas, they chose color-range that’s far from the usual red-green-gold/silver sparkles combination. Instead, they went for colder tones like deep purple and dark blue. I think step by step collage down below pretty much speaks for itself – I want to present you few basic ideas how to spice up your next manicure. (disclaimer: I’m not a pro at drawing on my nails, so excuse my amateur-worth results!) I really dig this dark blue/bronze combination, what about you?

Weekly inspiration

As much as I would like to post something really original and good, I don’t have any material to share with you, at least not yet. The day when I’ll actually catch some daylight to get few photos is coming though, so bear with me. In the meantime, I invite you over to my Tumblr and Pinterest where action is happening every day. Happy Monday everybody!

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.
