Here they are!

I love chickpeas and I'm trying to add tumeric to my diet where ever I could. This looks yummy!

So pretty.

This is so important. I just learned this recently.


I love the built in book shelf.

isadora - twist-up matt lips

Lipsticks are another one of those things I'm all 'my precious' about. LOVE. 
IsaDora is a Swedish brand. It use to be available at Muller but unfortunately not anymore. My friend (who lives in Sweden) gifted me this Twist-Up Matt Lips and I LOVE it!

They claim to use first class ingredients that are fragrance free and clinically tested (not animal tested), IsaDora is also suitable for sensitive eyes and sensitive skin.

The shade I have (and love) is 51 Bohemian

Benefits of IsaDora Twist-Up Matt Lips:
– Velvet matt finish. 
– Creamy yet lightweight.
– Intense and long lasting. 
– Special shaped tip for an easy and precise definition of the lip contour. 
– Handy, retractable twist-up pen – no sharpener needed. 
Contains : Papaya fruit extract and Orchid flower extract 

All the above is true. It doesn't dry out my lips, applies like a dream. LOVE it!
I would order more but my SIL is bringing some Bite Beauty lipsticks for me, I have been eyeing Bite Beauty forever!

Like I mentioned IsaDora is no longer available in Croatia but Look Fantastic carries them and I believe they ship worldwide.

I would describe this colour as a dusty rose mauve, your lips but better kind of shade (which I tend to gravitate to the most).

planner - 2017

My new planner arrived in the mail last week and I LOVE it. I all things stationary relatied...cute pens, pencils, erasers, washi tape, notebooks, get the picture but when it comes to my planner I don't go all out and use stickers or put any 'effort' into making the inside also look pretty. I just write in appointments and things I need to remember.

I bought this planner on ebay. You can see more photo and info about this planner here. One of the things I like about this planner is you write in the dates/months etc. 

I also bought my 2016 planner on ebay. It's the first one on the photo below with the orange flowers. This planner too doesn't have the dates written in. I love it, the only thing is when you open it you kind of have to hold it open to write (if you know what I mean).

I'm almost done drawing up a 'planner' stamp set, can't wait to share.

New Cell Serum AHA 10% + C Vitamin


I just started my second pot of Cosmel's New Cell Serum AHA 10% + C Vitamin so I thought I'd share my thoughts. The fact that I repurchased it suggests that I love it...and I do!

I've been applying this serum on my face (after cleansing and toning) every night (I follow with Cosmel's Melli Cream or Pai's rosehip oil). I was surprised by the texture. All the serums I have used before were a gel like consistency (watery and thin) and this one is like a cream and quite thick. 
A little goes a long way and the smell is hard to describe. It's not a pretty smell (like the Melli cream which smells devine) but it doesn't stink either and it doesn't linger on the skin.

This serum is a skin exfoliant and reduces hyperpigmentation (which I have).
You might feel some stinging especially if you don't use AHA's. I have been using AHA's for a while now and I wish I started sooner. My skin is softer, smoother and brighter. I asked if the vitamin C is stable (I read that for the vitmanin C to have any affect on your skin it must be stable) and they ensure me that it is.

Aqua, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Lactic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Simmondisiachinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Ceteareth-20, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycolic Acid, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cetyl Palmitate, Ceteareth-12, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Sodium Hydroxide, Dehydroacetic Acid.

It's very important to make sure you protect your skin and use SPF of at least 30 when using AHA's.

The packaging is cute. The jar is a frosted glass and you get 15ml of product. 

I hope Cosmel opens up their own webshop soon.
Well, that's it for now!

And here they are! 

Our kitchen is not finished but if I could finish it this is pretty much what it would look like! :)

There are few things that I can't help myself know what I mean.....some women love to shop for shoes or handbags. One of my things is 'stationary' and what I mean by stationary I'm talking about washi tape, cute pens/pencils, notebooks, wrapping paper, etc.

I think I'm gonna have to try this...I'm just curious. I love matcha and yogurt.

Recently a friend gifted me a zoya nail polish and I'm hooked! I am a neutrals gal!
