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,

 

2018 April hauls

Hi lovelies,

We are having a coupon days here in Hungary, so I just would like to show you my purchases. Yes, I spent a lot, and I have not purchase a lot of things for months…warning before you start a crazy spending read my Clear out tips.

Beauty, health and skincare:

Usually I am the person who buy economy packs on a lower price at drugstores like Nivea Micellar Wipes for travel, Tampa, Libresse, Always and Listerine will be enough for the next half-year. I wanted to try out Botanical conditioner, but bought two oldies, Fa have new smells, while Dove with cucumber was so fresh. I did buy some deodorants, toothpaste and shower gels to my husband.

Honestly I wanted some Catrice products, but they were sold out on the very first day’s morning (wow How?) …. so I have repurchased two things, which are great but not cruelty free this Maybelline concealer and L’Oréal Lash Paradise (I know that Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is a cruelty free alternative, but it is pretty hard to get in Hungary) both was on -50%. Real Techniques finally arrived to Müller, it is a bit more expensive than at iHerb, but still affordable, specially with 20 % off. Last thing was Chanel Powder, you might know that I have made a big clear out and nearly all of my powders were old and outdated, so I have purchased with giant in the promotion, I hope I will love it…

Cruelty free finally, I went i to The Body Shop to repurchase my favourite Vitamin E cream, they do have a new formula for normal/combination Skin so I am going to give a try. Of course I could not leave without the cult Shea Body butter, which is our other fav with my husband. Drops of Youth cream has a bigger packaging in a jar, as so many friends recommended and Vitamin E Eye cream was out of stock, I picked this one. Other free will be just samples, all of them are chosen by me, the serum was free, while two Masks for 300 HUF (1 EUR) due to the loyalty card. I did have 20% off by the coupon. Pupa (Italian make up and Skin care brand-might be cruelty free) launched their mask line, so this is a Bamboo Charcoal deep cleaning peel off mask and 2 packages of eye patches.

Let’s go back to training, so at Biotech USA: Hungarian and former American nutrition brand – I have bought some shakes from the women line, repurchased L-Carnitine, which I love to use before running, feels like to able to run more. And Spirulina food supplement: alga based bacteria, which helps to get a bit more well-balanced. Links:here

Clothes

I tried to follow my Spring wardrobe wishes and skip purchasing items, which are Already in my wardrobe. Most of the places Galmour coupons give 20 % off from new collections.

There are some gifts for my husband from his favourites: polo T-shirts fromHeavy Tools (shopshop), short from Springfield ( shop)and a Levi’s (shop)511 summer edition trousers. (All 20 % off)

Intimissimi is my number 1 underwear brand: sexy, quality lace and comfort. I wanted to have a flowered bra, actually not this, but is was much better and my hubby picked this body in their  catalogue – it was expensive but it is relatively rare that he point on something for me… so soft and comfy.

Calzedonia is the brand which i am only purchasing on sales, they are so expensive…IMG_4308

Mango‘s white blazer goes to my basics, really versatile for formal events with trousers, dresses. I really love in love with this soft knitted top’s browny-golden color. top blazer

Finally I have found my culottes: H&M white-blue stripped, fits really to my new white blazer and blocked hills.

Lastly, Promod was not on the promotion of the magazine, but they did have a promotion for “Ma Carte” holders on 2 items. Honestly I wanted to buy one of their flower dress, but it was not worked on me, so I choose these two: raspberry and green color dresses. Buying a good dress was pretty hard this season as most of them are super mini or under the knee length dresses in the stores, neither of them ideal for my lifestyle on bike. green   silky
