Father's Day Picnic Dad

Wow it has been forever since I last posted something here. 

It has been so hectic and busy with keeping up with work that I barely have any free time to post in the blog. It is not that I have nothing to post, I have been places, met people, found a lot of interesting things online that I wanted to tell you about but every time I open the blog to write I just feel my muse slipping down my fingers. Well today is one of those rare days when I actually have time to sit and put my random rumblings into writing. 

Father’s Day is coming up this week here in the UK and all I can see everywhere is promotions for greeting cards, meals and tickets to different shows. It all made me join in the hype and post something along the line of the holiday.

I have been kindly asked to pick my favourite Father’s Day style from Bonobos’s guide and I have set my eyes on the picnic dad!


The look is perfect for the season since the weather is quite nice but not too summery, after all I live in England and here you can never be 100% sure of what the weather will be like in the next 30 minutes. The choice of colours is quite good and I think it can be appealing to dads of all ages. 









































The Deckhander - Navy//Yarn Spun Tee - Red & Grey Stripe//The Blue Jean - Full Bleach Wash//Volley OC - Blue

I hope you all have a marvelous Father’s Day on Sunday and try spending some quality time with your dads!

Xoxo
Talk to you all next time!

P.S Promise, it won’t take me that long for a new post!

Highlight your natural beauty

First I will say that I do not wear a lot of make up. The right expression is hardly any and if I do I wear only an eye liner and a bb cream... and in the rare cases I do wear make up, it is all natural colours. But when I was offered to review the Fusion Beauty Ultraflesh Shine Box (Enhancer powder, Cream Shimmers, Highlighter eyeliner)I was a bit hesitant but when I saw how natural and pretty the colours are I knew that I will put it into a good use. 

  • 2x All Over Highlighter
  • 2x All Over Shimmer
  • 1x All Over Enhancer
I was too impatient to wait and take pictures while unboxing it, so I will just mention that it was really nicely packed with white ribbon and shiny gift wrap for the box itself, perfect presentation!
When I opened the product I was surprised that the texture of the shimmer isn't so powdery but instead it is gives your face the warmth that highlights your features. 
The small eye liner pencils are ideal to highlight the corner of your eyes after applying black eyeliner. The contrast is so pretty!One of the best things about the product is that it is very blendable, you can wear it in a combination with other similar colours or just on its own for more natural look. 
The  cream and powder products are seperated in different layers which means there won't be any confusion mixing them(very very handy). 
The powder producs consists of pinky/bronze tones and makes the blending even easier. The shimmer is not on large chunks providing an excellent application with a brush.

But the best feature for me is that the whole box is a super compact size which you can carry around in your handbag with no problem.

Do you wanna build a snowman?

Just today I realised I haven’t made a wishlist in a year or so but I have always been looking for things online so not making one is just out of laziness.
I will be lazy no more! My January WishList is entirely made of home d├ęcor stuff I really liked while browsing online. The heart pillow will look really great on a small sofa or in a combination with more pillows on a big bed. The column bowl candleholder is so perfect for a nice relaxing night in on a cold winter day (lighting my candles while writing). Christmas may be gone for now but winter is still here so the two snowmen (“Do you wanna build a snowman?”) are much appreciated decoration for the season. The clock is another geeky thing I found which will be perfect for my bedroom! I have had a few journals when I was younger but this one will turn into a scrapbook!
“There is no place like home”, indeed there isn’t! Such a true quote that I will definitely hang on my wall one day.  The boxes I do not particularly need but there is always at least one item I get that I don’t need but I liked and I couldn’t resist, aren’t we women all the same?


That is my post for today, I hope you will like my wishlist, if you have your own home edition wishlist posts leave them in the comments so I can see them! Thanks!

Happy Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! May it be blessed and just amazing! It has been a while since I last posted! But it has been a really long month full of magical moments and of course a lot of work.

Christmas for me is always about spending it with your loved ones, the smell of pealed oranges and delicious hot chocolate Christmas morning! What more can you want?
Plus I had a very productive month at work and of course being invited to see Annie Haak's new winter collection at the end of November was a really special treat for me. I hope your holidays were amazing as well and you enjoy yourself a lot!

Some of my frieds and family got me a really awesome knitted sweaters and other things so I started browsing through Etsy to find more hand made stuff and I found awesome items that I want to share with you :)

Annie Haak Designs Press Day

This week I was invited to attend Annie Haak Designs press day over breakfast with some great bloggers and the designer herself in the heart of London. The atmosphere was lovely, who can resist tea, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, waffles and pancakes and many many jewellery sitting all gorgeous and pretty just a few steps away from us.
It was a very special girly breakfast discussing fashion, movies and most of all Annie's precious pieces. The British designer is a very down to earth and friendly person, she was eager to give us as much information as we wanted and answered all of our questions. It was new to me to find out she is based in Bali for the most of the year, where Annie gets her inspiration from. Many of her designs are intended to carry a special meaning or symbols representing luck, love, protection, strength and well-being. She was described to me by one of her friends and co-workers as "both very talented and ambitious". Which I could clearly see by the variety of beautiful jewel pieces I had the luck to see in person.

Her new collection is stunning, making it a perfect gift for someone special for you. I am not going to lie, every girl can easily pick at least a few bracelets from the winter collection and write a letter to Santa with that specific request . My personal favourite is A Yard of Gold bracelet, which is a yard-long wrap of gold and was designed to act as five bracelets in one. And the special mention is for The Golden Santi My Guardian Angel Charm Bracelet, which can feature a personalized initial, a guardian angel and a choice of mantras. There is something unique for every woman from rose gold stacks to charm bracelets in gold and silver and dazzling stacks of gold in colour.
Now enjoy the pictures I have taken, they will represent the atmosphere of that amazing press day...well at least part of it!

Rocking Rudolph and Shimmering Snowflakes

Have you started your Christmas preparations yet? Well, I have, that is my first year in which I have actually started doing Christmas shopping before the beginning of December. Which in my case is a huge achievement having in mind I always leave things for the last moment? This year I casually started getting some nice pieces to decorate my Christmas table and around the house. I love the vintage and unique look not only for Christmas but for decorating your home as a whole. My family still have ornaments from my parents’ childhood, they are so pretty and no one can find them anywhere else now. However, there is a nice way to put new and old ornaments together. I still haven’t put up my Christmas tree but once I do I will put some photos of how it looks like. In this post I have put together the things I already have and what I want to buy for myself

I will first start with what I want to get and the place I usually look for unique stuff is Etsy. In picture I captured what I thought it will look perfect on my Christmas tree! See how adorable are the owl family in the first picture, my surname is not Sullivan, nor is 2012 but surely that can be fixed! And I think it is mainly for young families who have just had a baby and that is his/her first Christmas! Of course there should be something white and red to keep up the tradition and I happen to find exactly what I was looking for in the face of the lovely cushion like ornaments. Even though gingerbread man is not exactly popular in my country, I happen to find it quite fitting for Christmas tree so I picked that handmade gingerbread man ornament for my last pick (for now only!) from Etsy. 

































Now slowly moving on to what I have already bought for the holidays. My first pick was the Scarlet Glory Table Centre which I think will make your table look really elegant. I fell in love with the colours and since I have never had a proper centrepiece why not get this and hopefully I can use for years. It is from The Partyware Shop, which is an amazing place at the moment for Christmas shopping, it is full of tableware decoration, honeycombs, garlands etc all organized in different themes. My favourite one is the Shimmering Snowflake, and I believe if you have young children the RockingRudolph will be perfect for them since it is playful and fun.



























That's my Christmas shopping for now, once I fill my home with more small pretty things I will drop you a line!
