Make Space!




Do you ever feel  overwhelmed when packing your case or organizing things to store in your house?



Well, as for me, it is not my favourite pastime activity. My mother taught me to clean my wardrobe and house after each season but finding the space to store clothes, deco, etc., until the next season can be quite tricky. 




As I tend to use the same products almost every day in a given season, today I am sharing with you how I store them. I bought this see-through open box a few years ago and have loved it ever since.





As I do not use many products, it is enough to store the most essential ones. I love the open concept as it makes things even easier in the morning when I am almost still asleep when getting into the bathroom. :)

At the end of the seasons I always check if I can keep a product for the next season and when not, I drop it.

I know it seems to be easier to only have the products in one corner of your bathroom or wardrobe until the next season but a well organized beauty box or wardrobe is quintessential to a good start in the morning. This is why I immediately loved the idea of makespace, when I was first introduced to their services. 

It doesn't matter how much stuff you want to get stored for a while, they will pick them up,  find the right storage space and bring things back whenever you want them to. It does not matter, if it is only a few summer clothes or loads of stuff, they bring their green boxes and take them to store when filled.
And on top of that, you can do everything online.

How about you? How do you store your beauty products? 
Some good advice always helps. :)

Fall Trend Alert - Pom Poms

Fall Trend Alert - Pom Poms



With fall just around the corner I would like to start a series with my favourite fall trends for 2016 to help you find the pieces you can insert in your wardrobe and nail your fall looks.

In my first post I brought you a collage of pompoms. They have been one of our favourite sandal accessories during the summer like here and this trend will also be big this fall. Mainly as bag and phone case accessories, but you can also find them on gloves, scarfs, etc. 

I love how girly, flirty and fluffy they are.

How about you? Is it a  to-follow or not-to-follow trend for you?

Thanks for stopping by.

Eos - Equilibra - Uriage





Equilibra Aloe Deo Stick

When my last deo was empty I just rushed into the drug store and  grabbed Equilibra's  Aloe Deo Stick randomely. I had never heard of it or read reviews of it before. I just liked the idea that it contained aloe vera and was free of alcohol, parabens and alumynium-chlorid.
And since I first tried it, I am obsessed with it.  Its smell is really nice as the only odour you can smell is that of aloe. It works really well all day long so I am really satisfied with it. 
Definitely something I will re-purchase. My new fav product.



Uriage Eau Thermale

Earlier I used a thermal water spray by Vichy for quite a long time.  Although I was satisfied with it, I wanted to try something new. I use it when I feel that my skin is dehydrated during the day, when I feel that I spent a bit more time on the sun than I should have done or when the air in the office is too dry. It proved well in all these situations. It really hydrates and soothes as promised on the bottle. 
This product was worth the try. 



Eos Pomegranate Raspberry Lip Balm

I had heard and read a lot about eos products before I purchased my first one. To tell you the truth, I chose the pomegranate and raspberry one because I liked the colour. I was also happy to read that this lip balm is 95% organic, and paraben- and petrolatum-free. 
What I am not totally satisfied with is that it promises "soft and sensationally smooth" lips. As the purchase price was three times as much as that of the lip balm I normally use, I thought that the effect will also be much better. But that was not the case. The effect on my lips was approximately the same.  Don't get me wrong, I think it is a great product but because of the higher price I expected something "sensational". However, this might as well only mean that I purchased it in an overpriced shop. :)
