Pandora Rose- Pavé Bead Hoop Earrings (288294CZ): I was eying for this hoops for a while and in July they had a 20% off so I could ot miss out. It is a small silver hoop with thin rose gold layer and some stones.
By the time of the earring I have CF and Vegan cream haul too (that was not a gift). N.A.E. is a new drugstore brand here, which I have already tried their micellar water and packless sampoo, those I am enjoying so much, so I have decided to give a try as I have to replace a few of my empties. I have tried out the body balm, which is so lightly sented and water, but rich so it is the ideal during summer. The shower bar and the face cream I have not tried yet… as well as neither the eye cream as I still have one openned.
I have made a bigger H&M order also with 20% off. You might wonder how I wish to improve my closet if I order fast fashion. Honestly, I am not in the position of buying more expensive items now, but I do care about quality like most of the items are linen, yeah I am absessed with linen recently, so I picked 2 linen blend white dresses: a shirt dress and an easy casual dress. If you remember I have recently thrifted a linken culottes, to my sister was so obssesd with in and the truth is that it fits her more, so I have gifted it, but I had replace it with a premium quality linken Navy jogger. During the declutter I have realized that I do have a lot of one-time or holiday dress, which is really not me, so I have decluttered over 10 items… so also this slightly longer short. The accessories is just those which you do not need to invest in.
Beside my earring I have received some plants for our urban jungle:) Well the persil not, but it is damn beautiful on our balcony.
And finally we had the chance to visit my family and hubby’s mom by the lake of Balaton. Of course we had to bad weather, but it was great for walking, hiking, eating out and tasting some wines. So I had to wait to get sunburnt by the last days of July here in Budapest…
I hope you all well and may be ready for the summer as the pademic periode was so long and might be not over yet. We are planning to go for a holiday despite so many people say us you are so crazy, but I am really stress out and fed up with the whole situation now. Yeah you might say, how she can go for a holiday if she is earning pretty badly: I have saved up for it since last year, I am tracking my spending so much and try to be frugal in a lot of way… and of course I have a husband, whose job did not effected on. Still I think I need to break out of this tepid situation and it might will help to improve my personal life goal, which I am also struggeling for nearly a year now. Unfortunatelly both my career and personal life has stranded so far. Yeah you can ask: why do not you find a new job? Since last August I was subordinated it to my personal goals, as the pademic appeared I tried to move on,but no luck and it made me to be more depressed, which affects on my body evenmore…
So back to the bikini business now, so I am not the kind of bikini person girl I love to get tanned without tanlines, so we always search for nude beaches or just to be able to get topless, but fortunatelly it is not always possible, so I have to keep a few swimsuit too. I wanted to buy a sustainable bikini, but it is a way too expensive, so I have decided to keep my oldies and buy a new from Calzedonia, which was in my June low buy haul.
Grey swimsuit with chains on the side from Oysho (2years)
Black triangle top with a v-cut and the tie-side brazilian Calzedonia
Blue-white striped Calzedonia
I have left two black bottoms as when I am so pale I feel really uncomfortable in lighter colors. All the bottoms are brazilians if you have not tried them you should I am a fan of them for 8 years and they are the most comfy ones if you do not want more coverage.
I was thinking how many bikinis do I need for a summer holiday? I would say I do not need them at all, but people are more sexualized and not so open-minded so I need a few: 1-2 maybe. So I made a decision to keep my swimsuit as if we go to a Spa or Bath during the colder months, so I will not take it to a summer holiday at all. The black bikini is essential and to have at least an other. To tell you the truth I hate the stripped one’s top, but it was only 2 years so I have kept.
I know I have already posted about the trends of the upcoming season, however I just wanted to tell you my focus of clothing now: WHITE, yeah it is maybe a kind of wishlist too, but I do have some whites in my wardrobe already.
So WHITE have a million shade: Ecru, off white, cream etc. I think like me lots of you have some white in their wardrobe, specially tops. All white outfit looks more polished and makes us look rich and elegant. Normally I am into dark colours, but I have figured out the hand to toe monocome is more chic and the Spring-Summer is all about light colours.
T-Shirt: I have a few whites, but I cannot recommend more the Everlane Cotton Crew.
Bottom up Shirt or Shirt dress: I have to wear it to work, however I do have one at home too, but I would love to have a Shirt dress like this.
Cami: I do own a v-cut mulberry silk cami from Massimo Dutti, but this Sezane one also a great alternative.
White dress: I do have one oldie from Zara, but this is the one, which I should look for.
To add in 2020:
Toursers or jeans or bermuda: anything straight and croped
White trainers, specially from a sustainable brand like Veja
Cardigan, which you can just wear on top of anything, when it gets chili.
Crossbody bag: this part I do have, but if you look for one, Coccinelle Beat bag looks like a camerabag…
How you can spice it up?
Layered gold necklances
Brown and beige accessories
I know it is pretty hard to buy secondhand (or thrift) now, as you can only get them online if it is coming from a company… so if you buy new try a sustainable or local brand.
This is againamonthlyhauls 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.
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.
I know it is July already, but I just finally had the time to purchase my swimwear. I might be boring, but I have chosen Calzedonia again, which is my all time favourite Italian beachwear. They have a really great quality and I love their brazilian briefs like hell.
This year all of the pieces was a dream:
Nautical: I have fallen in love with the stripes this summer, so it was not a question what to choose. I wanted to have something more interesting than triangle, and preferable a non-padded top. So I loved those two with and extra binding underneath, like Ivy and Kate 1515. I am too fair for Ivy, but Kate 1515 was perfect for me, so just choose this blue version, so adorable.
Black: no summer without black bikini, there are my rescuer: so versatile and simple. I already have a simple triangle with a simple black brazilian, so my choice was the sexy Calzedonia Isabel with ruffles. Ok, the top is not so good for sunbathe, but ideal for after beach and how told that topless is bad? P.S.: it was on 30% sale.
Swimsuit: Hungary is the land of spas, I was looking for the perfect swimsuit for over 2 years no, and finally the Oysho plain grey reached the limit: I had a beloved one from the 90s while I was a kid and that is remembers me a lot. I love its back and the shimmer metal rings on the sides so retro.
