Bathing suit


Thinking back of Italy. My time in Italy seems to be so long ago. Actually it is, I mean, a month has passed already. A month. That’s like over 30 days. I miss Italy. Need to be back soon. Anyway, right after I returned home – which is about a month ago #lol…

vegan beauty products review

All good


All vegan. All good. The commitment to officially say “I’m vegan” was a decision I deliberated about for a long time. In the end, it took me over fifteen years before I completely cut out animal products. Mid July the time was just right and there was no question about it: this…

Because of the good reviews, I chose to get the CTM done…

Black Opium, Yves Saint Laurant, favorite perfumes

6 of my favorite perfumes


I am so excited to share my favorite perfumes with you. Fragrance is something very unique that can work on one person but not on another, but you don’t know what will work for you until you try. I always think it is interesting to find out what fragrances others…


Beauty: let’s talk mascara


Hello lovelies. It’s Sunday. And I’m super tired, but had so much fun yesterday! Since I posted a little video of me sort of telling you how to go on the streets beauty-wise 😉 (check out my 12 seconds of fame here) I have ben asked about my beauty routine and favorite…
