“How many money?”

Hi lovelies,

I hope you had a great Christmas so far and enjoyed my wishlist and hauls in this holiday season. At the end of the year is the time to summary, to account the year and as well as our spendings as well. In the beginning of the year I started an intensive Cruelty Free journey and used up as many products as I could, while during the year I was started to think more sustainable about my spending… Now let’s count my shopping, estimate the spendings and do the “people’s judgement”- in the comment section- try to come along witha conclusion.

Accessories: 

Might be the easiest category first- as for myself I onlybought a necklace, a headband, a hair band, rubber and a bobby-pin:

I admit that these things are ones which I can live without, but I love the cashmere headband it is so useful for ear protection and the pins just pop up my look sometimes. The necklace and the rubber was okay for holiday.

All from H&M– 5 pieces- spending: 11 472 HUF (ca. 36 EUR)

Gifts was:

Shoes:

It is so unbelievable I have purchased only one shoe, which was a summer sandal (leather) on sale:

ginorossidn694mtwobgbg2512x_gino_rossi-dn694m-two-bgbg-2512-x_ab_0003

Brand: Gino Rossi– 1 item- spending: 8 850 HUF (ca. 28 EUR)

Clothes

OMG, it is even hard to collect:

I think I had one more Yellow summer dress, which is not on the montage. Eventually I have 2 (leopard shirt and the black flower patern dress, which are not in my wardrobe anymore and the black dotted dress I have not even wore yet, while the brown dotted only one.

Brands: H&M, Zara, Mango, Promod, Oysho, Levi’s, COS– 21 items-  168 642 HUF (ca.527 EUR) ca. 40 EUR spent on useless clothes, which is in a way much, but on the otherhand not that much because it is under my 5% of income, however I am still wants to decease the numbers in the future and buy more quality items next year- at least one from a local designer.

Let’s continue tomorrow with make up and skin care…

Xoxo,

Summer clothes update

Hi lovelies,

I have not written for a while as I mentioned the lastly why… Now it is time to show my recent updates on my closet.

Firstly I have made a bigger decluttering regarding my clothes, shoes- I would say Summer Declutter vol. 1. as I think I have to check it again in August. So have ordered a remixshop bag, to check if I can sell the items, which are unused or barely used – I am fed up with Facebook Market function as it is so hard to get a reliable buyer and takes so long- so the opportunity costs do not pay off if you know what I mean ;). So into the bag I added totally of 10 clothes and a pair of shoes. And also I took 2 big box of clothes to the charity shop, these are the middle condition clothes and one smaller to H&M recycle campaign, I know it is Fast Fashion but, it is better to take the ripped or torned textiles to return them.

So the list will be a bit long, but it was my purchases of June and July, yes I can not afford designer clothes so, it is Fast Fashion…

Shoe: leather sandal by Gino Rossi (Italian brand) ordered it for ca. 28-30 EUR with a -65% discount after a long hunting and that is what I was exactly wanted: beige or brown flat sandal with ankle strappy- I have sent much less than I was expect to be:).ginorossidn694mtwobgbg2512x_gino_rossi-dn694m-two-bgbg-2512-x_ab_0003

H&M

I have placed an order due to the sale at H&M online- I know it is so bad, but things happens- of 5 pieces, but sent back 2 of them due to size (ordered 36 and sent out of a 42) or bad quality. I am keeping these 3:

All of them were 6- 9 EUR, which is pretty good value.

Zara

They are so quick and upto date, so that is why a lot of people love them, but honestly they are a bit pricy compare to the quality… but yes the design… so they do have 2 annual sales, the first prices are usually not so much of discount, 2nd and 3rd are pretty great. I went in to the store by the second and was so suprised nearly nothing left- a lot of crazy tourist bought them all :). So I only find the floating yellow/orange dress for ca. 15-16 EUR (have not find on site, so try to took a picture) and some new collection:

Sorry they do have so ugly models on site so…. It is a black cotton top with a tie (ca. 23 EUR) and the jumpsuit (ca. 45 EUR) – OMG I had to go back 2 times to change: first due to the cassier girl pulled out a thread while she was removing the security thing and next was like a badly tailored one…

Oysho:

I wanted a linen short so bad, so as H&M failed I finally found: so classic (ca. 20 EUR)

I was a good girl to purchase two bermudas to my hubby:).

Yes there were no beauty haul , but I hope you have enjoyed!

Xoxo,

 

 

My ultimate packing list for Thailand

Hi everyone!

We have just arrived from our honeymoon, we sent 2 weeks in Thailand. Honestly, my packing was simply perfect: not over packed (18kg only from 30), had items for every occasions, so no extra purchase due to weather conditions or religious regulations. Read my packing list and hacks/tips by categories below:

Skin and hair care

This is my number 1 tip to keep the samples and make a use of them during your travel! Even thought hotels do provide toiletries, but the quality might not meets your expectations. Samples I brought: Mac lipscrub, Clinique: Prep start (15ml!) moisturizer, conditioners from Palette hair dye(from my sis), mini perfumes and shower gel (75ml!) which I have received from previous purchases at Douglas (like Sephora), small body lotion(60ml) from Body Shop box, Bobbi Brown oily make-up remover.

  • Zewa wet toilet paper (42)
  • box of Tampax
  • Tissue mask by Balea
  • Body Shop’s Wild Argan oil
  • toothpaste and toothbrush

Make-up:

At tropical weather you do not need so much of make-ups but a bit of course. For everyday I only used my Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Waterproof version in travel size as my lashes are blondes… for day trips I was made a use of Bobbi Brown’s BB (fair shade) as it has spf 35, my Blonde BB brow pencil and L’Oreál  Perfect Slim liner, BB Sandwash Pink Lipcolor and used blocking film  paper instead of powder.

As for night outs was a bit more:

Bags: Longchamp Le Pliage Shooping Bag in Navy (What I got for Christmas)and a Black leather Petrity crossbody

Clothes:

It was really strange checking my summer clothes in the middle of winter, so most of the clothes was already existed in my wardrobe. As for bikinis and swimsuits I tried to bring those which perfectly mixed together and finally I did not used my swimsuit…

Hacks: as we had 3 hotels, so I tried to pack to be no need to unpack all the time, so folding the clothes 4 times to be able to see them and used IKEA ISTAD bags to save space in our bags.
