MuLondon White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream

February 27, 2014


Imate kakšno večnamensko kremo oziroma balm? Četudi ga imate tega lepotca nujno potrebujete! MuLondon White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Hell Cream* je prekrasna krema za celo telo, še posebej za tiste dele telesa, ki so pogosto zanemarjeni - komolci, kolena in pete.
MuLondon White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream
Bogata hranljiva krema ima čudovite naravne sestavine ekološke pridelave, kot so karitejevo in kokosovo maslo, jojobino olje, karnauba vosek, ekstrakt rožmarina, vanilije in kakava. Vonj kreme je božanski! Vonj po sladki beli čokoladi me vsakič tako razveseli, res mi je všeč! Diši skoraj popolnoma enako kot Organic White Chocolate Truffle Moisturizer*, tudi sestavinsko sta skoraj enaki. Gre za gosto, bogato kremo oziroma balm, ki se ob stiku s kožo krasno stopi in razmaže. Krema je mastna a ne oljna, v kožo se ne vpije takoj a jo pusti sijočo in super nahranjeno. Brez sledi suhe, celo razpokane kože.

MuLondon White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream
Kremo najraje uporabljam za nego stopal, ker imam vedno težave s suho kožo na podplatih. Brez dvoma lahko rečem, da je ta krema nekaj najboljšega kar sem uporabljala! Poleg tega je čudovita za nego obnohtne kožice in rok, sploh ponoči. Seveda je super tudi za komolce, vrat in dekolte, pri zelo suhi koži pa tudi za nego obraza. Včasih malo kreme nanesem tudi na konice las, lahko si le mislite kako lepo dišijo po čokoladi. :) 
Krema je meni zelo všeč! Ima odlične sestavine, prekrasen vonj, je večnamenska in tako hranljiva, da suha koža kar izgine. Pa še porabi se je zelo malo. Priporočam!

What do you think about multi purpose balms? I'm sure you have your favourites but I have another one you need! I'm talking about the hand-made MuLondon White Chocolate Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream*. This is a very rich cream which can be used all over your body but it's especially designed for all those neglected parts of the body, like elbows, knees and heels. It contains the finest natural and organic ingredients, also suitable for vegans and it has the most amazing smell of white chocolate which I love! How could you not love the sweet smell of such deliciousness? :)
The cream is super rich, it melts into your skin and leaves it soft and really nourished. I love using it on my feet. My heels are always a bit dry but this cream is by far the best one I've tried. It's great for my cuticles and hands and of course it works wonders on elbows, neck and decolletage. Oh and it's also perfect for dry ends, you can just imagine how good my hair smell. :)
I think it's a lovely all-rounder and I really recommend it! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. 


Love, 
Jana

Detox Bath

February 23, 2014


Če sem že v zadnji objavi govorila o detoksikaciji telesa, bom pa še danes. Tokrat bo postopek veliko prijetnejši in brez dvoma bo vsaj nekaterim veliko ljubši od žvrkljanja olja. :) Seveda je že vsem jasno, da govorim o sproščujoči kopeli, ki obenem čisti strupe iz telesa ter je primerna tudi za občutljivo kožo. Sicer nisem zvesta privrženka kopeli, včasih sploh nisem bila in še zdaj me včasih odvrne, ko pomislim, da nimajo vsi enake sreče in dovolj vode. No, občasno pa se jim tudi ne morem upreti.
DIY, Homemade Detox Bath
Za razstrupljajočo kopel potrebujete vsakodnevne sestavine, tri boste brez dvoma našli kar v kuhinji.

Sol - najboljša sol za razstrupljanje telesa je epsom sol, ki je pri nas na žalost dokaj nedostopna. A navadna kuhinjska sol bo prav tako učinkovita. Pazite le, da ne uporabljate zelo predelane soli ampak naj bo čista in brez nepotrebnih primesi.

Zeleni čaj - uporabite čaj v lističih, za prvo silo pa bo tudi čaj v vrečkici zadostoval. Super je le, da je iz ekološke pridelave. Zeleni čaj je močan antioksidant, sprošča napete mišice in izpuščaje.

Ovseni kosmiči - ne delujejo razstrupljajoče a so odlični za občutljivo kožo! Koža je po uporabi mehka in navlažena prav zaradi njih.

Bentonit glina - zelo učinkovita sestavina za razstrupljanje saj iz telesa izloča težke kovine. Gotovo ste že slišali za glinene kopeli in nedvomno je najpomembnejša sestavina v tem DIY-u.
Detox Bath, Salt, Bentonite Clay, Green Tea, Oats
Običajno za eno kopel uporabim eno žličko vsake sestavine. Razmerje lahko prilagodite, če imate občutljivo kožo dodajte več ovsenih kosmičev. Najpreprostejša rešitev je, da vse skupaj vržete v kad in premešate. Veliko boljša in meni tudi prijetnejša rešitev pa je, da sol stresete neposredno v kad, ostale tri pa položite v robček iz blaga in zavežete. Na koncu robček ni ravno najlepši na pogled, sploh ne, a meni je ljubše to kot pa namakanje med ovsenimi kosmiči in lističi čaja. Če ste vajene na čudovito dišeče kopeli z veliko pene, potem morda ne bo za vas. A včasih različne dišave in parfumi v izdelkih povzročajo alergije, izsušenost in razstrupljajoča kopel zagotovo ne bo škodila. Sicer pa meni tudi vonj teh sestavinah ni ravno najbolj pri srcu, vsaj ne za namakanje. :) Diši po zelenem oziroma črnem čaju z mlekom. Kopeli tako dodam eno izmed Dr. Hauschkovih esenc za kopel. Čudovit vonj goreče sveče iz sojinega voska pa bo tudi odličen. Priporočljiv čas kopeli je 20 minut in ne se ravnati po principu več je bolje, ker preveč detoksikacije lahko tudi škodi. Kopel pa bo prav tako zelo učinkovita, če boste v njej namakali le noge saj tudi s tem poskrbimo za razstrupljanje celega telesa.

New post, old topic. If I talked about detoxification in my last post, why not do it again today? :) This time it's about homemade detox bath which is way more fun than oil pulling. Taking a bath is a very relaxing thing but I don't do them often because I feel bad for all those people who are not as fortunate and don't have enough water. However, I still can't resist them from time to time.
So for a nice detox bath you'll need: salt, the best is epsom salt which is quite hard to find in my country so I just use pure cooking salt that doesn't have any nasties. Next are green tea and oats which are not really detoxifying but are an amazing for sensitive skin and bentonite clay. This type of clay is supposed to be the best one for detox baths, it absorbs toxins. But also nutrients so you have to be careful with that.
I usually take one tablespoon of each ingredient, you can adjust it to your own needs - if you have sensitive skin I recommend more oats, they're really soothing. You can just toss it all in a bathtub but what I like to do is sprinkle the salt directly into the water, the rest I put in a handkerchief and tie it up. That way it's not so messy. If you're used to gorgeous smelling baths you can also mix in a bit of a product of your choice or just light a nice soy wax candle. Recommended time for this kind of bath is about 20 minutes but no more because too much detox is not good. Oh and sometimes it's a good idea if you just do a foot bath, it also works great for the whole body.


Love, 
Jana

Oil Pulling

February 21, 2014


Oil pulling ali žvrkljanje olja je ajurvedska praksa pri kateri 15 do 20 minut žvrkljaš olje. Le-to dokazano razstruplja telo, jetra, pomagalo naj bi pri številnih boleznih, ki jih niti ne bom naštevala, krepi imunski sistem, odpravlja težave s kožo in skrbi za zdravje celotne ustne votline, krepi dlesni in beli zobe. Če vas to ne prepriča, le pobrskajte malo po spletu, nisem še prebrala negativne ocene. In ali se ne sliši krasno, da za zdravo telo in bele zobe potrebujete le olje? :)
Oil Pulling with Coconut Oil
Postopek

Hladno stiskano, nerafinirano, ekološko rastlinsko olje je tisto kar rabite. Sezamovo in sončnično sta povsod omenjena a prav tako je tudi kokosovo, ki ima še antibakterijske lastnosti. Žvrkljanje olja je najbolje izvajati zjutraj, pred zajtrkom. Tudi pitjem. V ustih imamo nešteto število bakterij, ki jih s samim ščetkanjem zob sploh ne očistimo in niti pomisliti nočem, da vse te bakterije zaužijemo. Zato je najbolje, da to izvajamo zjutraj, ni pa nujno. Brala sem, da nekateri priporočajo zjutraj le zato, ker se lažje spomniš in je to že prva stvar, ki jo narediš. Treba je le malo paziti, da pol ure pred in po tem ne pijete ali jeste. Jaz sem se navadila na jutranje žvrkljanje, če zjutraj tega ne opravim tudi kasneje ne. 
Za uspešen postopek dajte žličko olja v usta in začnite žvrkljati. Olje preprosto premetavajte sem in tja, ni nobene znanosti a to je potrebno delati 20 minut. Brez grgranja. Olje je na koncu treba nujno izpljuniti! Kot sem že napisala, imamo v ustih ogromno bakterij in tega nočete pojesti! Olje pravzaprav postane strupeno! In da slučajno ne pride do zamašenih odtokov, morate olje izpljuniti v smeti, ne v umivalnik ali wc. Nato usta splaknite s toplo vodo in skrtačite zobe.

Moje izkušnje

Olje žvrkljam skoraj pol leta, omenila sem ga v tej objavi. Ja, že dolgo se spravljam napisati tole objavo. :) Okej, prvič mi je bilo vse skupaj dokaj nagnusno. Uporabljam le kokosovo olje, ki je v trdem stanju in že samo čakanje, da se je olje v ustih stopilo, me je spravljajo na bruhanje. Žvrkljanje mi je bilo na začetku izjemno utrujajoče, hitro me je začela boleti čeljust in vedno sem imela probleme, da ne bi kaj po nesreči pojedla. Seveda se je to zgodilo a ko sem se nehala obremenjevati, nisem imela več težav. Hitro sem se navadila, žvrkljanje olja mi sploh ni več grozno in z lahkoto žvrkljam 20 minut. Včasih še kakšno minuto dlje, sploh, če pišem kakšno objavo. :) Ja, ne sedim na stolu in čakam, da bo čas minil ampak se med tem stuširam, pregledam maile, pripravim zajtrk in druge vsakdanje stvari. Le da zraven še malo olje mešam in na kakšna vprašanja le kimam in momljam. :)

Zelo zanimivo je, da se olje pri žvrkljanju spremeni, postane voden in bele barve. Ja, saj vem, nagravžno! A če ni tako, potem žvrkljanje ni bilo uspešno. Meni je bilo bolj kot vse drugo najbolj neprijetno izpljuniti olje; ko sem videla tisto "olje" me je kar zmrazilo. A saj se sčasoma tudi tega navadiš. :)

Rezultati

Verjetno vas vse zanima ali res beli zobe? Ja, res jih! :) Na začetku sem izboljšanje opazila že po nekaj dnevih! Nato se je vse skupaj ustavilo in zobje so postali bolj beli šele po kakšnem mesecu. Čeprav fant mi je večkrat že vmes rekel, da se zelo opazi. Nasploh pa so zobje bolj čisti in gladki. Tudi dah je bolj svež. Velika negativna lastnost je ta, da moraš žvrkljati vsak dan, sicer zobje porumenijo nazaj. In na tej stopnji sem trenutno jaz. :( Že enotedensko prenehanje se takoj opazi! Veliko je odvisno tudi od navad in pitja kave, čajev. Glede vpliva na telo nisem opazila večjih sprememb a tega niti nisem pričakovala ali spremljala. Sem pa prebrala ogromno izkušenj o pozitivnih vplivov na telo in ozdravitev različnih bolezni.

Žvrkljanje olja je naravna, super enostavna in učinkovita rešitev za bele zobe in zdravo ustno votlino pa tudi za zdravo telo. Zelo priporočam! Seveda je sprva neprijetno in nenavadno a saj veste kako je, vsega se navadimo. 

Ste že preizkusile? Še boste? Kako se vam zdi? :)

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. It's great for overall health, it strenghtens your teeth, gums and jaws, it boosts your imune system and loads of other things! It also whitens your teeth! All you really need to achieve all these is a cold pressed, extra virgin vegetable oil. I use coconut oil but you can also use other oils, sesame and sunflower oils are supposed to be great. So now that you've picked your oil you have to put one tablespoon of it in your mouth. Swish it around for 15-20 minutes and then spit it out. You have to spit it out because it becomes toxic! Our mouth has so many harmful bacterias and you really don't wanna eat them! :) Oh and you must spit it out in your trash, you don't wanna clog your drains okey.
The best time to do this is in the mornings before eating or drinking. Otherwise just be careful not to drink or eat half an hour before and after oil pulling. I've been doing this for about five months and at first it was kinda awful. The feeling of oil in my mouth and swishing it around was gross. Spiting it out was no fun either. But you get used to it and now I don't have any problems. In 20 minutes you can get all sorts of things done, I take a shower, make a breakfast, read my emails.. Just everyday stuff. :)
I'm sure you're all curious about whitening effect on the teeth. Well I saw a huge difference in whiteness in a couple of days! Then it all stop and about one month later the results became even better. Now, for me the biggest negative thing would have to be that you have to do this regulary. Every day! If not, your teeth will become yellow again. A week without oil pulling and your teeth won't be as white as they were. You really have to be consistent if you want great results. Overall I'd say that my teeth feel much cleaner and smoother and I'm really pleased with results. 
I really recommend trying and sticking to it, I know the results will come! :)

Have you tried it already? What do you think about it?


Have a lovely weekend,

Jana xx

New in: Alverde Mousse Rouge in Deep Rose

February 18, 2014


Pred nekaj dnevi sem kupila Alverdino rdečilo v odtenku 20, Deep Rose iz njihove omejene kolekcije Vintage Rose.
Alverde Mousse Rouge Deep Rose
Odtenek je prekrasen in tak kot si ga predstavljam pod imenom Deep Rose, gre za temnejšo roza barvo. Rdečilo diši popolnoma enako kot Alverdina krema za telo Mandelj in vrtnica, vonj je dokaj nežen in prijeten. 5,5 g rdečila se skriva v plastični posodici, ki je enaka tistim v redni kolekciji, ki jih obožujem. Moj najljubši je še vedno v odtenku Light Apricot, več si preberite tukaj. Pričakovala sem, da bo moje nove rdečilo enako učinkovito in enostavno za uporabo a na žalost ni. Deep Rose sem uporabila dvakrat, enkrat s prsti in drugič z Real Techniques Expert Face čopičem s katerim vedno nanašam kremna senčila. Oh, ko se samo spomnim problemov mi je res žal, da sem vzela še svetlejši odtenek Sweet Rose. Tekstura Deep Rose rdečila je drugačna kot od tistih v redni prodaji, kar sicer tudi piše na embalaži. Gre za mousse rdečilo, ki je sicer prijetno na dotik a preveč mehko. Dobro, to me še ne bi motilo, če bi bil vsaj nanos odličen a ni! Obakrat se je naneslo zelo neeakomerno, ko sem ga želela zabrisati se ga je pol zbrisalo, nekje ga je bilo preveč, nekje nič, bila sem cela flekasta. Sicer je s prsti nanos malo lažji, s čopičem je preprosto grozen, ker je rdečilo kar preveč vodeno in se na koži sploh ne obdrži lepo. Zelo me je razočaral! Na koncu sem morala oba nanosa popraviti z Benecos rdečilom a še vedno nisem bila popolnoma zadovoljna.
Rdečilo bom morda preizkusila še kdaj, še vseeno me zanima kako se obnese svetlejši odtenek, nakupa pa definitivno ne svetujem.

A couple of days ago I got this gorgeous Alverde blush from their limited edition Vintage Rose. It's in the colour Deep Rose which I really like but unfortunately that's about it. If you don't know, I love Alverde cream blushes, my favourite is Light Apricot (review). Well this new one has a completely different texture. It's a mousse blush and the texture is like that but it's too soft and watery, it's actually quite nice on the touch but the application is horrible. I used it twice, once with fingers and once with my favourite tool for cream blushes, Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I'm used to applying my cream blushes with a brush but oh my with it was even worse than with fingers. It made all very patchy looking, it didn't blend like normal blushes do, I was left with no blush on some places and too much on others. Aghr! With fingers was a bit better but still not good enough. Both times I had to fix it with my Benecos blush which was better but if I've had more time I'd just scrap it off and start all over. I really don't like it and it's such a bummer that I also bought the lighter shade in Sweet Rose. Maybe I'll use it some time but I really don't recommend buying.

Gaia Creams Argan & Sea Buckthorn Raw Face and Body Cream

February 13, 2014


Gaia Creams je angleška znamka, ki sem jo najprej zasledila na Instagramu. Po ogledu njihove spletne strani sem želela preizkusiti vse izdelke, kar lepo po vrsti. Več kot navdušena sem nad njihovo filozofijo! Gaia Creams izdelki niso testirani na živalih, primerni za vegane, ne vsebujejo čebeljega voska, palmovega olja in nobenih toksičnih sestavin, le najboljše, ekološke, surove sestavine, kot so nepredelana surova masla in hladno stiskana olja. Ustanoviteljica Anna verjame v to, da če izdelka ne bi pojedel, potem ga sploh ne bi smel uporabljati na koži. Poleg tega pa tudi zelo poudarja pomen zdrave prehrane in njene povezave z zdravo kožo. 
Ali je lahko še boljše?
Gaia Creams Argan & Sea Buckthorn Raw Face and Body Cream
Da, seveda je lahko! Ali lahko prosim govorimo o temni, stekleni embalaži in dizajnu?! Ali vsi vidite kaj piše? Na kremi piše Jana, ja Jana, moje ime! Jaz sem skoraj s stola padla, ko sem videla! Pri ogledu njihove spletne strani sploh nisem opazila, da za vsakega natisnejo novo etiketo z imenom. Čudovit detajl, brez dvoma se počutim bolj posebno zaradi tega! :)
Gaia Creams Argan & Sea Buckthorn Raw Face and Body Cream
Argan & Sea Buckthorn Raw Face and Body Cream* vsebuje prečudovite sestavine, kot so karitejevo maslo, arganovo, konopljino, svetlinovo, laneno olje ter olje črne kumine in izvleček rakitovca, ki spodbuja celjenje, krepi in ščiti, povečuje proizvodnjo kolagena in je nasploh krasna sestavina. O samem olju sem na kratko pisala v tej objavi.
Krema je izredno bogata z omega 3, 6, 7 in 9 ter s steroli, krema stimulira detoksikacijo por in obnavlja lipidno bariero kože. Zahvaljujoč visoki ravni vitamina E prav tako deluje proti staranju. Čudovita, bogata, obnavljajoča krema zmanjšuje gube, nevtralizira proste radikale in ščiti tkivo. Globoko pomlajuje, učvrščuje in ščiti vse vrste kože.
Obožujem to kremo! Drugega niti nisem pričakovala, že ime me je takoj premamilo. Arganovo olje in olje rakitovca se odlično razumeta z mojo kožo, karitejevo maslo prav tako hvalim na vse pretege, ostala olja so pa le še en dodaten velik plus. Kremo uporabljam približno mesec in pol, le zjutraj in moram reči, da je odlična. Kreme, ki ne vsebujejo vode in temeljijo na maslih in oljih čudovito reagirajo na moji mešani koži. Gaia Creams krema ima krasno teksturo, je dokaj trda a sploh ne preveč, gre za maslo, ki se ob stiku s toploto telesa takoj stopi. Na koži se neverjetno lepo razmaže, uporaba je zelo prijetna, koža pa po uporabi mehka, nahranjena, sijoča in sveža. Popolnoma se ne vpije v kožo ampak pusti prijeten občutek navlaženosti. Če imate probleme s suho, luskasto kožo, potem je ta krema najboljša rešitev! Pomembno je, da jo uporabim zelo malo, ker sicer sem pa res cela mastna. V tem primeru kožo po nekaj minutah popivnam z robčkom in nato nanesem mineralno podlago. Edina negativna lastnost je vonj. Krema ne diši, mislim, da prevladuje prav vonj rakitovca, ki ima sicer dokaj močan vonj. Vseeno pa sem se ga hitro navadila in poleg tega so eterična olja skoraj v vsakem izdelku naravne kozmetike, tako da je prav super, da jih v tej kremi ni.
Krema je namenjena vsem tipom kože, še posebej pa suhi, dehidrirani, problematični, občutljivi in utrujeni koži. Na Gaia Creams spletni strani 30 ml stane malo več kot 22€. Zelo priporočam!
 
Naj pa za konec priložim še fotografijo mojega paketa, pozornost do detajlev je res neverjetna. Spomnim se, da je paket že od zunaj rahlo dišal po sivki, ko sem ga odprla pa je sivkin vonj sobo kar preplavil. Oh, čisto sem nora na znamko, res je čudovita!

I first saw Gaia Creams on Instagram. I saw this beautiful Argan & Sea Buckthorn Raw Face and Body Cream* and I was hooked. The sound of these two amazing ingredients together was a dream and after seeing their website I wanted everything. And I still do! :) Gaia Creams is a UK-based brand and the lovely Anna is the founder of this gorgeous raw, organic, vegan and ethical brand. I really love her philosophy! Just go to Gaia Creams and read all about it, let's rather talk about the cream or should I say, waterless balm. I love them, they work great for my combo skin. So, as the name suggests it contains Argan Oil and Sea Buckthorn Berry Pulp Extract. Two gorgeous ingredients but that's not all! It also contains Shea Butter,  Hemp, Evening Primrose, Flax and Black Seed Oil. Maybe you can imagine that the smell is not all that great, I assume that's the Sea Buckthron's fault. Well I don't care because essentials oils can irritate your skin and it's nice to have a cream that doesn't have them.
Cream has a lovely balmy texture which just melts into your skin and leaves it soft, smooth, healthy and dewy looking. It is really moisturizing and nourishing, if you have problems with dry flaky skin it would be perfect for you. Altough it consists of oils it's not heavy at all! Of course it's a bit oily and you have to be careful to use it sparingly but I find it really interesting that it is not heavy at all. It's just so nice, I love it! I've been using it for more than a month, I use it in the mornings and I'm really impressed with it, I highly recommend! It's great for all skin types, especially for dry, dehydrated, problematic, sensitive and tired skin.You can buy this jar of gorgeousness here.
Oh and I nearly forgot about the packaging and design! Have you seen my name on it?! When I was browsing through the website I didn't see that so when I opened my package I almost fell out of my chair! I'm telling you, everything is in the details and this one really made my day! As did the beautiful package with it's lovely lavender smell, so thoughtful! Can you tell I love Gaia Creams? :)

Have a lovely day,

Jana xx

Lip Balm Galore

February 07, 2014


Preden začnem bluziti o balzamih za ustnice in razmišljati o tem ali sem obsedena z njimi, naj najprej povem, da sem z največjim veseljem prebrala vse vaše komentarje na prejšnjo objavo! Res zanimivo branje, super je izvedeti malo več o mojih čudovitih bralkah.<3
Dobro, zdaj pa na današnjo objavo o ustnicah oziroma balzamih. Le-teh imam kar nekaj, nekateri bi morda rekli, če jih zbiram. Ko se spomnim, da sem imela včasih le enega ali morda dva, se sama sebi zdim hoarder. A iskreno, popolnoma nič se ne obremenjujem in z veseljem bi jih imela še več! :) Torej, naj vam predstavim nekaj mojih najljubših naravnih balzamov, ki vsebujejo same odlične sestavine, med njimi je večina tudi ekološkega izvora.
Lip Balm Galore, Natural Green Organic
Madre Bees, Hurraw, Crazy Rumors
Madre Bees Organic Honey Lip Balm - včasih sem oboževala izdelke, ki so dišali po medu in ta balzam me je ponovno spomnil zakaj. Krasen, preprost, zelo vlažilen balzam v kjut embalaži, ki sem ga povrhu dobila zastonj pri iHerb naročilu. To pomeni, da imam še nekaj drugih vonjev, skoraj vse, če sem natančna. :)

Hurraw! Sun Protection Balm SPF 15 - vonj mandarine, kamilice in vanilije me vedno spomni na čudovite poletne dni, na počitnice ob morju, kjer ga vsako leto zvesto uporabljam, saj vsebuje zaščitni faktor 15. Obožujem ta vonj! Hurraw balzami so čudoviti, ta in drugi, ki ga bom omenila sta moja najljubša. Več tukaj.

Crazy Rumors 100% Natural Lip Balm Apricot Plum - od vseh mi najlepše diši! Sladko in krasno. Ko me je prijateljica seznanila s tem balzamom, ga sploh nisem mogla nehati vohati! Moram preizkusiti še kakšen drug vonj, se mi zdijo zelo zanimivo - Chocolate Strawberry, Bubble Gum in Apple Spice jih je le nekaj.
Gwdihw, Hurraw, Meow Meow Tweet
Gwdihw Smoochy Lips Orange & Lemon Lip Balm* - eden izmed boljših balzamov za nahranitev ustnic ponoči. Eden izmed redkih, ki se na mojih ustnicah obdrži celo noč in ga čutim še zjutraj. Zelo vlažilen in prijeten za uporabo. Sovica na embalaži pa tudi ne škodi. :) Več pa tukaj.

Hurraw! Night Treatment Balm - vonj ni ravno moj najljubši a vseeno dokaj prijeten, diši po divji kamilici in vaniliji. Super balzam, ki krasno navlaži ustnice.

Meow Meow Tweet Lip Balm Tangerine Lime - moja zadnja pridobitev je ta čudovit balzam, ki prekrasno navlaži ustnice. Glede na opis sem pričakovala krasen vonj a mešanica vonjav kakavovega masla, mandarine in limete mi ni ravno pri srcu. Pa vsaj zato toliko bolje deluje in je odličen tudi ponoči. In če se malo pohvalim, fant je rekel, da je enak mojemu domačemu balzamu. :) Sicer se sestavine kar razlikujejo a učinkovitost je menda enako odlična. In še, ali nima znamka najbolj kul imena? :) Že dolgo sem ogledovala njihove izdelke in zelo sem vesela, da sem jih nekaj končno le lahko preizkusila.

Koliko balzamov za ustnice imate? S katerimi si najraje zavarujete ustnice v tem mrzlem zimskem vremenu?

First of all I wanted to tell that I really loved reading your comments on my previous post. I found it so interesting and I was so happy to read a bit more about your life. I have such lovely readers!<3 But not to be too cheezy, did you know I love me some lip balms? :) I have quite a few but for this post I chose some of my favourites. Madre Bees Organic Honey Lip Balm was a total surprise! I got it as a freebie with iHerb order and I instantly fell in love with it. It contains simple ingredients, it's moisturizing and it also has cute design which I'm all up for that. Next ones are from Hurraw!, amazing brand which use organic, vegan and raw ingredients. They work amazing. I love the Sun Protection Balm SPF 15 because its smell reminds me of summer and holidays and ooooh I just really wanna be there! It smells of tangerine, chamomile and vanilla. More hereNight Treatment Balm doesn't have the best scent to it but it's amazing as well. And if we're already talking about scents, I love the smell of Crazy Rumors 100% Natural Lip Balm Apricot Plum. Ooh, it's just the best! My friend introduced me to this one and I just couldn't help myself but to sniff it for five minutes. Or was it half an hour?:) I'm really interesting in some other scents, I find them so intriguing. I mean who wouldn't want Chocolate Strawberry or Bubble Gum lip balm? 
Gwdihw Smoochy Lips Orange & Lemon Lip Balm* also smells lovely but the best thing about it is its staying power. It works wonders as a night balm, it stays on my lips all night and when I wake up in the morning it's still on my lips. Review here. Last but not least is my newest addition to the ever growing group, it's the Meow Meow Tweet Lip Balm Tangerine Lime. Don't you just love the name of the brand, I think it's so cool. :) I'm not really the biggest fan of the smell, mix of cocoa butter, tangerine and lime isn't my fav but actually I don't mind it because it's really moisturizing and nice. To tell you the truth I wanted to try their products for so long and I'm so happy it finally happened. :)

So, tell me about your favourite lip balms? Do you love any of these?

Yesterday a new package from MuLondon arrived! If you follow me on Instagram then you probably know what I'm talking about. I'm one lucky girl! :) I guess you all know how much I love his products and when I saw that he also send me a small Organic Rose, Rosehip & Rosemary Moisturiser I saw a perfect opportunity to do a giveaway! I still have my own Rose cream (review) and I thought it would be a shame not to give the small one away because I don't want it to just lay around. It's amazing and I want to share it!:) So, giveaway is open internationally, all you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter form. You have to follow my blog on Bloglovin or GFC and tell me what are your plans for Valentine's Day. The winner will be chosen randomly and notified by email on 14th February.

Če se slučajno čudite, da je ta objava šele danes in zakaj nisem objavila nič novega, potem naj vam povem, da smo danes končno dobili nazaj elektriko!! Brez smo bili že v soboto, jaz sem prišla domov v nedeljo tako, da smo bili nekaj dni odrezani od sveta. Brez elektrike in signala. Danes že vem kaj bom počela, cel dan bom visela na računalniku in pregledala cel internet. :D Ta zima je res grozna in komaj čakam, da mine! 
Zdaj pa kar na moje Instagram slike. :)
1. Pečen krompir z avokadom in zelena solata. 2. Prvi letošnji sneg. 3. Končno sem našla mid prstane, ki mi celo niso preveliki! 4. Selfie. 5. Presne kroglice z mandlji, kakavom, kokosovim oljem in kokosom. 6. Pred kratkim me je kontaktirala Claire, avtorica Zenspiration Magazine, z željo po sodelovanju in seveda sem rekla da! Moj članek si lahko preberete tukaj. :))
7. Evkalipusov med in Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Bath Essence je vse kar potrebujem za dobro kopel. 8. Majhni listi kodrolistnega ohrovta (kale). 9. Končno imam tudi jaz Pai kremo za okrog oči!! Ne morete si predstavljati kako vesela sem bila, ko sem jo prejela! Hvala ZaNaravno!<3 10. Trenutna najljubša fotka z mojim fantom!<3 11. Pica! 12. Najboljše suhe fige imajo v Lidlu!

Upam, da se ostale ne spopadate s takimi razmerami kot so bile pri nas ali s še hujšimi! 
Upam, da se imate lepo! :)

Finally a new post! The weather in our country is horrible and we've been without electricity for a couple of days! Today we finally got it and I know what I'll be doing today, I'll be hanging with my computer and I'll read the whole internet. :)) But let's get on with today's post which should have been up on sunday but it is what it is. :) The most exciting thing in the last two weeks was e-mail from Claire, author of Zenspiration Magazine. She asked me if I'd like to write something and of course I said yes. So, you can read my article here. :)) The other exciting thing was receiving Pai Eye Cream! I've had it on my wishlist for as long as I can remeber. :) And I also got some cute mid rings which actually fit me. Last but not least, I really love that photo of me and my boyfriend, we had fun! :)

I hope you are having a lovely day!

Love, 
Jana xx
