Tide up your home- Bedroom

Hi lovelies,

This is my final one of the tide up serie, I hope you had did the same while you should stay home to be safe. It did not took me a full day, but I still think I have to work on it so much: I would need some boxes that fits, new velvet hangers and of course the rest of the home decoration like plants, curtains and a rug. So home wishlist coming soon.

Firstly -I did my husband side: chest of drawers and the wardrobe and shift his clothes to Spring, but I did not decluttered anything – only a half pair of socks – as it is his own responsibility, so just asked him to do so 8-10 items.

Than I was worked on my own belongings: I have made my intentory I own 93 items without nighties, swimwear, underwear and loungewear, which can be much for a minimalist… I have figuered out my year arround basics and the seasonal items and for the first time I only decluttered a few, but I think I will have much more specially for the summer… but that can be a whole seperate post. I think I should check my clothes more frequentely an update according to the weather, so May again.

Then I made the other storages in the bedroom: under the bed and on the side of the bed and of course the window.

Xoxo,

 

Tide up your home- Outside

Hi lovelies,

The weather is still pretty bad, so I still have to skip the bedroom… I neither have a Spring feeling at all to be honest, even it is nearly April, by the time it will be posted it is.

So last week I did the entryway and our outside storage, as we most not really go out of the flat I did not have the opportunity to buy what we really need to the balconies or to the outside storage…

Our balcony opens from our bedroom, so I washed it all: the floor, window and the fence. We do have only a tiny pine tree on now so later on we should plant some flowers there.

In our entryway there are not some many things, as it is an L shape I just started the most inner side the built-in wardrobe. On the top we do store our luggages and some decoration stuffs, middle are the coats and suits, bottom shoes in their boxes, tools and the hoover. So check my outwear and some shoe collection coming soon… stay turned.

Then I have cleaned our shoe cupboard, mirror and the other small built-in storage too. I know we would need a bit more plants to decorate a bit, just yet we did not had time to. So I was washed the entry door too and tomorrow is the turn of the outsidestorage.

That was a big fail as it shelves have to be replaced and also to do a new door and lock, in addition most of the stuffs are belongs to my hubby, so I was unable to do it alone…

Finally bedroom coming up, so stay turned.

Xoxo,

 

 

 

 

Holiday packing

Hi lovelies,

The summer nearly ended… but finally we are going to our holiday. Yeah next year should rather go in the middle of the summer as I feel really tired for a couples of weeks, way too much of works.

Even we are going by car to Croatia and then to the Lake Balaton, I tried to be as minimalistic as can be and do not do over packing. Friday I have checked what we have at home and today we will just buy a couple more things- mainly food. We will stay in a hotel and our reservation is with a half board, so we do not need to cook at all. Insurance, money exchange done, so let’s see whatI have packed:

Face and skincare:

I always keep the little samples, which I receive so it is really useful for travelling, so all the for hair conditioner, the Nivea haarmilch sampoo, Omorovicza cleansing foam and the two Sensodyne toothpastes were free. The empty plastics I received at Hard Rock Café a while ago on a PR event, which two willbe filled with my showergel and one which some more shampoo, from home. I am taking my Ouai Wave spray and try to use up the leave-in conditioner. I will take my correctly used face, eye and body cream, the mosquito spray, deodorant, comb and of course the toothbrush. Only bought the 7 to 3 Lush face cleaner and the two sun protection stuffs for this trip newly.

You might wanna ask: the hotel not providing any amenities? I do not know, but I do not think it is etnical and sustainable. (Yes my simples too , but these are either I am using up or take it to the trash, while in the hotel it can stay for the next guests.)

Makeup:

Waterproof mascara and the liner is a must at the beach, my belowed Tarte Flirt palette is anumber one for travel, now for the summer my new NYX Ultimate palette is nice compliment of it. I try to use up my Essence brow gel, TB concealer, Mac strobe cream, BB Bronzer and of course the Cover FX powder and the Natasha Denona Blush and also the little samples are ideal for travel. The It Cosmetics CC has SPF 50, the BB rouge is red so it is a statement and the Glow spritz I just one to try out a bit more. As for the brushes I am taking a Real Techniques sponge, BB Face -blender, RT setting, MAC 217 and a Zoeva Pencil brush. (not pictured as they are dirty)

Shoes, bags and accessories:

Sandal is a must- brown, pair of sneakers (running of if it is too cold), black -Birkenstock and the swimming shoes for the rocky hills. My new Bag from my Hubby, which is cream, gymbag for the beach (as we bring only sport towels) and a black crossbody for the darker clothes. Necklance for the beach, some hair pins and rubbers and the crop earring.

Clothes:

Probably the most hardest to pack, because women would love to take everything. 8 painties, 3 pairs of socks, 2 bikini tops, 3 bottoms, demin jacket, sport bra and short are easy, but the rest…

Okay convinced: I will travel in my red jumpsuit, black jumpsuit is good for a dating night, this orange dress for an other dressy day, yellow short dress for the beach, linen short and a jeansskirt with 4 more tops.

So only my hubby’s stuffs, manicur and some medical things left, but it is time to shop some snacks…

Xoxo,

 

August haul

Hi lovelies,

This is again a monthly hauls like usually, but August is my Birthday so most of the things will be gifted for me and also I try to be using less, so for myself I only bought things which I need.

Lets start with my husband’s gift: is a handmade leather bag, which is so georgous in this light cream shade and I prefer to have a crossbody strappy which this bag has. It is not so huge, but big enough for my iPad mini or to keep my takeaway bottle in it.

img_6194.jpg

From my parents I received a few products which I was really into. Okay to begin the story with: they were asking what I wish, want I want for my Birthday and I was saying oh nothing, I have everything ect. Then my sister give my Feelunique login to them because she knows that I have a wishlist on it and they ordered a Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, an Urban Decay Primer Portion and my fav mascara the Perversion. The pack in not arrived yet, but it is due today to my work place.

I got the NYX Ultimate palette from my bff. Honestly I have never ever thought buying this, but I have thinking to buy a Pupa blue single shadow or a ABH- Riviera Palette, but now everything in it and evenmore colors, which I can use with my natural ones…

From my sister I’ve got The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea food mask, which I tried once in the single use version and it was even better than the Himalyan one. From my brother and his girlfriend a vegan sampoo – conditioner and a cute hair ring (yellow on the picture).

And yes the things that I bought: this cute, cheap necklance from H&M I think it will be super cute for the beach, The Body Shop Camomille Butter I have repurchased and Coconut mist was a just for fun thing. Lush 7 to 3 cleansing pad and the sunblocker for our upcoming holiday.

Happy Birthday to Hungary too!

 

Why we can not be zero waste?

Hi lovelies,

Plastics free July is such a nice initiative, however let me write the truth why you can not succeed-> YES the whole world is againts you. So we tried to reduce the platic: so did not buy any soft drinks, plastic bags nor anything with single use plastic packaging. But let me tell you why we failed:

I really like the conception of zero waste(read and watch videos too), specially the 5R, which I try to keep is the next time, but firstly it is my list which I just can not do. I really appricate the people, who live a zero waste lifestyle! 5-rs-of-zero-waste-refuse-reduce-reuse-recycle-rot

  • Travel: I love to travel and can not live without it, I think it is a bit unsightly when zero waste gurus travels a lot (specially by plane or car) to give speech regarding their lifestyle.
  • Washing: instead of using single use products, zero waste usually required to wash, specially hygenic items, to disinfect you do need to use a higher temperature, which increase electricity usage and also waste a lot of (in Hungary: drinking) water!
  • Detergents: eco free detergents also packed in plastic… and costs a lot more than normal ones and usually not that effective. I have tried DM Nature, which is a prettygood eco products for us, but I have read a lots of reviews that is useless for stubborn spots- but we do not have a kid yet so… And also the fabric conditions alternatives are pretty low choices. Yes, you might say these washing nuts- but there are coming for India, form the other side of the World…
  • Hygiene: I can not replace toilet papers or kleenex. From the kleenex it is better to take the paper box ones, but there are having smaller and lower quality. Diva cup is not something that I can imagine to use.
  • Secondhand clothes: I used to shop second hand, but as most of the second hand are extremly over priced, also sells fast fashion and most of the clothes are coming from the UK, so I only go into real, local vintage store. So all those Hada or Cream English second hands sells H&M, Zara, Primark ect. so imagine: these clothes are produced in Asia or Morocco, than they shipped to UK, which they might sold (yes sometimes the stores took the unsold items into the bins) and used once or twice by a women, than they left it into a bin,which they select and sold the best ones (which are the rare used) for the price of 10-15 EUR/items in the Eastern European part. Other problem they cause, that you can not sell your used and locally purchased clothes at all or maybe by facebook market place, which takes a lot of time and energy. The zero waste way would be to shop local designer clothes, which is very expensive or sew it yourself- that is still not the cheapest and also need time and skills.
  • Lack of selective bins!
  • Lack of returnable packaging: milk, beer, wine ect. bottles used to be widely returnable a few years ago.
  • Online shopping: I love to do my shopping online as you can buy much more things then in the shops, it is easier and do save some time. Yes it is comes in a lot of extra packaging, which is mainly plastic.
  • Make-up: I am a make up lover, yes I have not rethink that part of my life;).

I hope you have enjoyed this little post, I am going to update on my steps for a sustainable lifestlye in a few days!

XOXO,

High end beauty products I wish to try

Hi everyone!

This post will be again a wish list like I did previously: My Sephora wishlist Spring wardrobe wishes but it will be expensive products, which I have never ever tried. Might you will see that I mentioning more products or same brands If you have already try these, comment below what you think I should invest in. Sometimes I will mention 2 or 3 icons, even I try to minimize:) I also wanted to find the sizes and US prices… and photos from google!

FACE

Primer:

  • Marc Jacobs- Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer: “It hydrates, smooths, and preps the face for makeup application.” all what I would need and the packing is so classy and stylish. It is ideal for normal and dry skin so might be my combination skin would not love this, but it is contains coconut exact…hmm

Foundation:

  • Chanel: Vitalumiere Aqua: “Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup SPF 15″I love light coverage like BB or CC creams, this is a water based foundation, which you have to shake before usage, although it is called sunscreen makeup with spf 15 it is not much protection in it, but can be ideal for a fresh Spring or Winter makeup. Why they put perfume and probpylparaben in it?
    • $50/30ml=1 oz at chanel.com

  • Giorgio Armani- Luminous Silk Foundation: I have heard too many good things about this, even it contains parabens… I have tried once at their make-up counter and OMG all day long, light to medium coverage, all I want from a foundation.
    • $64/30ml=1oz at sephora.com

Concealer:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Touche Éclat- “The original face highlighter and #1 essential for your makeup bag.” I only had dupes of this from NYX or Pupa or L’Oréal, it is so expensive but as I have tried my mom’s one (she always repurchase it) it is one of the best high end concealer (which is actually a highlighter)and under eye brightener…

Contour:

  • Cream:Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Contour Duo:I do not have a contour cream at home, but I like the idea of this products and really good reviews on the sites… easy to apply and a hint of simmer, which is ideal for my pale skin tone.

  • Powder: I rather use a bonzer-highlighter combo

Blush:

  • Chanel- Joues Contraste: “Unique powder blusher imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. Remarkably silky texture for easy application and subtle shading. Accentuate cheekbones for a youthful look. Softer tones around the eyes soften expression and rejuvenate.” Do not know the shade yet, because so much are so beautiful: In love- nice baby pink, Élégance- mauve pink ect.

  • Guerlain- Terracotta The Bonzing Poweder: the original matt formula in so many shades. “This bronzing powder naturally reproduces varying shades of the sun, offering women an instant natural glow, at any time of year, in one quick, easy motion.

Highlighter:

Powder:

  • Guerlain- Météorites: this powder is just simply stunning and really nice to have it next to a matt powder for glowing days. Can not decide between the compact,voyage or the pearls. “Today, the Météorites hold the secret to Stardust technology – a light-creating polymer, which transforms light invisible to the naked eye into a pure and endless glow on the skin. A subtle blend of matte, rosy and radiant blue-toned white pearls, combined with corrective coloured pearls – yellow to counter redness, pink for freshness and mauve to catch the light – they light up the face in an illuminating and corrective halo to give endless radiance.”

EYES

Brows:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills- Dipbrow Pomade: it is a so big cult now, of course I want to try it like crazy. “Smooth application, waterpoof, smudge-proof, can be used as brow definer and as eye liner.”

Liner:

  • Kat von D- Tattoo Liner: Liners in my everyday make up to go, maybe cat eye is my signature of look, so far I want to try the most hyped back liner (Topper) at market now. I nearly purchased it last month in Bangkok at Sephora but there were out of stock of  black color…
    • $20/0,55ml=0,19 oz at sephora.com

Eyeshadows: that is the category which I would say too many good ones to choose and it is really hard to buy a real high-end palette in Hungary, that is why I only have: Mac eyeshadows in 4 or L’Oréal: La Palette Nude- which I wish to replace with a real good nude palette like Tarte or Urban Decay. Too Faced Chocolate palette is pretty but I think I would not like the smell of it and ABH- Modern Renessaince is just stanning. So what do you think ? Comment below your recommendation.

Mascara:

  • Dior-Diorshow: It is blonder and fuller the lashes and it has in brown and blue too with my favourite type of brush…
    • $29,50/10ml=0,33 oz at sephora.com

LIPS

Lipstick:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Volupté Tint-In-Balm: its packaging is more that stunning. “A lipstick combining melting balm care with glowing sheer color”- tend to have a nude form them.
