Review: body sugar scrub

Hi!
Some time ago I received a package from a company called BIO2YOU, which sells organic cosmetics. I like to pay attention to the ingredients of the products I'm using. It's pretty hard to find make-up that is free from harmful chemicals, but there are so many skincare products on the market that I can be picky and choose something natural or organic. I think it would be a perfect Christmas present with home-made gingerbreads!

The first thing you'd probably notice after opening this is the wonderful smell. I don't smell honey, but the vanilla and almond make it smell really delicious. The body scrub is in two layers. In the picture you can see the honey looking top layer and all the sugar has set on the bottom of the jar, so you have to mix it before using it. It doesn't leave the skin sticky and sugar works well on removing dead skin and solves later in water so you don't have to worry about making a mess. The jar is made of plastic which is in my case a huge plus, cause I tend to be clumsy and drop things so at least this won't shatter into millions of pieces like some other products I've used. 

You can find it HERE.

Run free

Hi!
I've been dreaming about travelling and leaving my hometown almost every day for the past month. There are so many cool places I'd love to see and I feel really confused about my wishes and aims in life. I was looking through the photos I took in Spain last December and noticed there are still some that I haven't posted here. These photos make me want to wander in forests, breathe fresh air and spend time in nature. So where would you like to travel?

Chose to stay

Hi!
Remember I talked about a photoshoot I did with Anete? I received so many good photos from her that I was a bit confused how I should show you the best ones. Today I'll give you a short sneak peek of the first outfit and you'll get the second part of the photos on Wednesday.

Until then

Hi!
I don't have much to tell you. I feel like I need much more alone time as soon as the weather gets colder. The lack of daylight makes me want to stay home, burn candles and watch tv-shows. Schoolwork keeps me busier than ever and I've rarely paid attention to the clothes I've been wearing. I'm really thankful to all of you who still come back to my blog to see if there's any updates. University has been like a hurricane messing up my life, but I promise I'll get my life back on track since I really miss all of this.

23.11.

Hi! 
Yesterday was my 20th birthday. Growing up is weird and scary, but I feel like I'm ready to face the next decade of my life. I had literally the sweetest morning starting the day with a cake my mom and my little sister had made for me. My dad had written me a letter of how he remembers my childhood and what kind of a kid I was, and my sister got me a fun bookmark. Also it's about time to start planning my trip to London as it was a part of my birthday gift in addition to the London city guide. My mom highlighted that this gift won't be a one-way ticket and I have to get back from there, although I'm really tempted to get away from here.

Wish you were here

Hi!
Looking at these photos makes me miss summer and those warm days when you didn't need to worry about all the layers of clothing to keep you warm. 
This dress is totally out of my comfort zone. Although I like over-sized clothing, I've preferred to wear fitted and girlish dresses. 
This one is quite huge but at the same time really comfortable, so I made an exception.
