Ebay, let’s talk Ebay. What an amazing marketplace, almost anything you want you can find there, for a better price. I have been looking for a net shopper like this for a while on the high street and shops all over London with no luck. Only to realize that Ebay has them for 1,39 pound!
I didn’t take a lot of thinking before clicking home the little beauty. Perfect for a day at the park or beach, to bring your groceries and for a day in the city running errands.
Welcome to my space, yes I have created a little space at home where I hang out. This is where I read my book and just relax. I think if you are busy and working a lot, it’s important to slow down every now and then, for me it works to have a specific place in the house for that actual slowing down process.
I got THIS PILLOW that I absolutely love from Maison Popineau It just brings some extra coziness to the space and also some color and character. One other extra plus is the fact that the pillow is made from feather filling, so not one of that synthetic pillow that will lose their shape within a week, and the pillowcase itself is made from cotton and silk patches all sewn together. A real quality pillow that is! Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that is made in France and is eco-friendly, Win win win!
The colors are from the french flag, and since I used to be Parisian I thought I would bring some french character into my London home.
Check out some more of my favorite pillows from the brand below. Should a get a pink one next time or the one with a lightning?? Decisions decisions…
Hands up everyone who feels like they have too many clothes but nothing to wear? Well, you are not alone if you raised your hand.
A couple of days ago I got asked by the app Share Style, where I work as one of their many freelancing personal stylists, to share my five best tips in how to do a wardrobe detox. A wardrobe detox is simply a detox but for your clothes and wardrobe. It’s a way to edit out what you don’t need and add pieces you are missing and simply clean and organize so you can easily get dressed in the morning. I’m sharing my first of five tips here, to read them all head over to Share Style blog.
HIDE THE CLOTHES YOU AREN’T SURE ABOUT FOR A FEW MONTHS.
This may sound ridiculous — why would you hide your clothes when you’re already struggling to find something to wear? — but it can really help. If you have some pieces in your wardrobe that you’re not sure about but haven’t got rid of them just in case you might wear them on some rare occasion, then fold them up and put them in a bag for six months. If you haven’t missed them or can hardly remember what’s in that bag, then you know that you can do without them. So get rid. Leaving them as an unreliable outfit option is only adding extra minutes to your daily dressing woes.
And if you still after reading the five tip needs an extra help, don’t hesitate to book an appointment with me at Share Style.
Let me start by telling a story before I talk about this brand. Twelve years ago I passed one year in London working as an Aupair for a family, I spent all my free time with my dear friend Zuzana who also she worked as an Aupair. We were close like sister that year and since she lived more central I ended spending every weekend at the family she worked for so I also got to know them quite well.
Just before this last Christmas I was looking for gifts in Liberty for some friends and I picked up and bought this Himalayan bath salt, the package was so nice and I just loved everything it stood for and of course the actual product in itself ( who doesn’t like natural products that makes your skin smooth and relaxed? ). A couple of months passed when I caught up with my friend Zuzana, who I hadn’t seen for a very long time. We talked about our life today, and our life twelve years ago, she mentioned that the family she used to work for had started this beauty brand and showed me a picture of their products. You might guess that it was exactly that brand I bought a couple of months back, maybe a coincidence but I like to believe that it was meant to be. I think their product have something spiritual in them that made me choose them from all the couple of hundred other products in the store.
Naturally, me and Zuzana saw this as a sign and went to visit Mauli Rituals lovely founders Anita and Bittu a few weeks ago and they are just as warm and welcoming they were twelve years ago. I love when you know something more about a brand, who the founders are, what they stand for and what inspired them to start this wellbeing beauty brand. A true inspiration!
I really speak from the heart when I say that this brand has something extra, it smells like heaven and contains so many good ingredients, and most important it makes you feel so good! The serum on the picture above made my skin softer than ever felt in my adult years, and that is quite a good achievement I must say.
