Manicure of the week: Candy Nails

pink yellow blue purple marble nails

Candy nails... this is what happens when I start to play and let my imagination run wild. Enlarged collection of nail polishes and recently bought brush set (plus ordered boxes of nail decorations) threaten to become my new "obsession" in the future period!

Candy nails... evo sta se desava kada se zaigram i pustim masti na volju. Uvecana kolekcija lakova i nedavno kupljen set cetkica (plus narucene kutijice dekorativnih ukrasa za nokte) prete da postanu moja nova "opsesija" u buducem periodu!

My shop decoration

ceramic statues of elephants

Most of you who follow and read my blog know that over the summer I always work somewhere "close to the sea", with no exceptions. This and last one I've started helping G in one of the seasonal shops (main), because he needs to take care of the other two in the place where we live that are open all year round. Here you can find all kinds of souvenirs: books about Greece, statues and jars, postcards, pictures, magnets and similar, as well as some "fashionable accessories" such as: handbags, scarves, sunglasses, jewelry (including silver and gold). Maybe you can guess maybe not, but my favorite part has always been and will be- decoration. It's something I enormously enjoy doing, so much that during the sorting, stacking and putting things in a certain (conceived in my mind) place, I often lose track of time. Here is how one part looks like...

Vecina vas koji pratite i citate moj blog znate da preko leta uvek radim "na moru", bez izuzetaka. Ove kao i prosle godine pocela sam da pomazem J u jednoj od sezonskih radnji (glavna), jer on vodi racuna o druge dve u mestu gde zivimo koje su otvorene cele godine. Dakle tu mozete pronaci raznorazne suvenire: knjige o Grckoj, statue i cupove, razglednice, slike, magnete i slicno, ali i brojne "modne dodatke" kao sto su: torbe, marame, naocare, nakit (ukljucujuci srebro i zlato). Mozda pretpostavljate mozda ne, ali moj omiljeni deo je uvek bila i ostala dekoracija. To je nesto u cemu neizmerno uzivam, toliko da tokom razvrstavanja, slaganja i stavljanja stvari na odredjeno (iliti zamisljeno u mom umu) mesto, cesto izgubim pojam o vremenu. Evo kako izgleda jedan deo...

outfit: Orange & Turquoise

orange knitted top turquoise linen pants outfit

"Go bold or go home" is always my motto and choice when it comes to the colorful outfit combining! I love colors too much, I love my life, I love taking risks (from time to time), I love being proactive, energetic and optimistic and there is no point in hiding my vibrational mood which I'm consistently and diligently working on. I embrace all this, every day of my life, and enthusiastically express it through my looks, clothes, jewelry, make-up, basically everything that can help us in creating our personal "visual effect"...

"Budite hrabri ili idite kuci" je moj moto i izbor kada su u pitanju koloristicke outfit kombinacije! Obozavam boje, obozavam svoj zivot, volim da rizikujem (s vremena na vreme), volim kada sam proaktivna, energicna i optimisticna, i ne vidim nikakvu poentu u sakrivanju mog vibracionog raspolozenja na kojem konstantno i marljivo radim! Zahvalna sam za sve ovo svakog dana svog zivota i sa entuzijazmom to ispoljavam kroz izbor garderobe, nakita, make up-a, prakticno sve ono sto nam pomaze da stvorimo nas licni "vizuelni efekat"...

Blue Scarabs-> Inspired by Glam Chameleon Jewelry

Glam Chameleon Jewelry blue scarab blue beads green crystals necklace

Scarab, sacred beetle, is one of the most popular amulets in ancient Egypt, while a self-created Egyptian god in this form was called Khepri. Scarab is a symbol of rebirth, fertility, the soul and the sun. It can be seen in the decoration of Egyptian tombs, manuscripts, hieroglyphic works (often shown with solar disk over the heads), as well as a part of beautiful jewelry pieces- necklaces, bracelets, wrist cuffs, decorative collars... An example is the bracelet found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been proved that some mummies had a scarab under their bandages that was placed on the chest in order to ensure the re-birth of the deceased in the next/other world.
** Blue scarabs used in making of Glam Chameleon Jewelry necklaces are the inspiration for today's post, and the whole story is fashionably completed with the runway looks from the spring-summer 2012 collections (Peter Som, Bottega Veneta, Luca Luca, Ungaro, Badgley Mischka ...).

Skarabej, sveta buba, je jedna od najpoznatijih staroegipatskih amajlija, a samozvani egipatski bog u ovom obliku je nosio naziv Kepri (Khepri). Skarabej predstavlja simbol ponovnog radjanja, plodnosti, duse i sunca. Moze se videti na dekoraciji egipatskih grobnica, skriptama, hijeroglifskim delima (vrlo cesto sa prikazanim suncevim diskom iznad glave), kao i na bogatim komadima nakita- ogrlice, narukvice, dekorativne kragne... Primer je narukvica pronadjena u grobu vladara Tutankamona. Dokazano je da su mumije ispod svojih zavoja imale skarabej koji je bio postavljen u predelu grudi sa ciljem da pokojniku obezbedi ponovno radanje na onom svetu.
** Plavi skarabeji korisceni u izradi Glam Chameleon Jewelry ogrlica su inspiracija za danasnji post, a cela prica je modno upotpunjena delovima kolekcija za prolece-leto 2012 (Peter Som, Bottega Veneta, Luca Luca, Ungaro, Badgley Mischka...).

outfit: Black, white, touch of red

black mini skirt white loose top red open toe shoes

When I take a look at these pictures, I realize how much Laki is growing overnight, but literally! We captured those moments like two weeks ago, and he's two times bigger now! His teeth grow and he's chewing all things (because of that each pair of my shoes is completely out of the reach!) including wooden doors; his nails grow and I'm wearing marks (read: scratches!) on my hands with such a dignity and elegance. But well, it's all a natural process of growth, maturation and change, for both of us... we learn something new every day, and we're looking forward to it...

Kada bacim pogled na ove slike, shvatam koliko zapravo Laki poraste preko noci, ali bukvalno! Ove trenutke smo uslikali pre jedno dve nedelje, a on je sada dva puta veci! Zubi mu rastu pa gricka sve zivo (zato je svaki par mojih cipela apsolutno van domasaja!) ukljucujuci i drvena vrata; nokti mu rastu a ja vrlo dostojanstveno i elegantno nosim tragove (citaj: ogrebotine!) na svojim rukama. Ali dobro, sve je to proces odrastanja, sazrevanja i promene, i za jedno i drugo... ucimo i saznajemo nesto novo svakog dana, i radujemo se tome...

Summer face cleaning products

Summer face cleaning products

I've already mentioned how much I consider face cleaning to be an important ritual in my daily life, sometimes even more important than the skincare creams. For me, there is a slight difference when it comes to the products I use during the summer and winter (warmer and colder periods of the year). For example face toner I use increasingly over the summer and more for the refreshment than for the cleaning reason. While in winter the same product is used very sporadically since my skin is more sensitive and drier in this period, so I try not to remove too much natural oils that protect the face.

Vec sam spominjala koliko mi je svakodnevni ritual ciscenja lica bitan, pa cak nekada bitniji i od same kreme koju nanosim za negu koze. Kod mene postoji blaga razlika sto se tice proizvoda koje koristim tokom leta i zime, odnosno toplijeg i hladnijeg perioda u toku godine. Tako recimo tonik za lice pojacano koristim tokom leta i to vise u svrhu osvezenja nego ciscenja. Dok je tokom zime isti proizvod vrlo sporadicno u upotrebi jer je moja koza tada osetljivija i suvlja pa se trudim da ne uklanjam previse prirodnu masnocu koja stiti lice.

outfit: Purple Floral Dress

purple floral print dress gold sandals yellow bag gold jewelry purple nails

Flower print has become my "weakness" this year, while as a kid I hated it. I'm glad that flowers are really popular this year, yet I'm more glad to know they will be equally popular the next year. This means that not even one thing embellished with this soft and romantic print won't end up in some paper box, but will continue to occupy a special place in my wardrobe...

Cvetni print je moja "slabost" ove godine, a kao mladja sam ga prezirala. Drago mi je sto znam da su ove godine cvetici u modi, ali jos mi je draze saznanje da ce i naredne godine biti podjednako popularni. To znaci da nijedna stvar ulepsana ovim neznim i romanticnim printom nece zavrsiti u nekoj papirnoj kutiji ili kesi, vec ce i dalje zauzimati pocasno mesto u mom garderoberu...

outfit: Black and white printed mix

black and white printed dress outfit

We all know that white and black color make a perfect match, both independently used in a combination or with a touch of another color- especially bright yellow and fiery red. No matter how much I consider myself to be a "coloristic type", from time to time I get struck by some "minimalistic moment" when I want to wear only one color from head to toe, or two/three moderate shades. To immediately "distance" myself- this refers to the colors, not the prints, it is quite another thing in my mind that doesn't fall under the same category! Exactly this look is a good example...

Svi znamo da se bela i crna boja fenomenalno slazu, kako samostalno tako i uz dasak neke druge boje- narocito blistavo zute i vatreno crvene. Ma koliko god ja bila "koloristicki tip", nekada mi prosto nadodje "minimalisticki trenutak" kada bih nosila samo jednu boju od glave do pete, ili pak dve/tri krajnje svedene nijanse. Da se odmah ogradim- ovo se odnosi na boje, ne i na printove, to je sasvim druga stvar koja u mom mozgu ne potpada pod istu kategoriju! Upravo ovaj look je pravi primer...

Daily hair care routine

Herbal essences shampoos Garnier naturals shampoos

Having healthy, strong and incredibly shiny hair (read: like in the commercials!) is what we all wish for, whether we have short, medium or long hair. We're aware of the fact that "the beauty comes from within", therefore we must to pay attention to our nutrition which is extremely important for the healthy hair. We can manage it by increasing the intake of "good fats" (fish, nuts), proteins, beans, enough liquids... But what about the "external haircare", especially basic one- shampoos and conditioners? I can freely say that I haven't still found my "magical" shampoo or conditioner, I am still experimenting. I rarely repurchase the same hair products, and I always have several ones which are used in rotation. These are shampoos and conditioners that I currently use, some less some more...

Zdrava, jaka i blistavo sjajna kosa (citaj: kao sa reklame!) je zelja svake osobe, bilo da imamo kracu, srednju ili dugu kosu. Da "lepota dolazi iznutra" sasvim nam je jasno, shodno tome moramo obratiti paznju na namirnice koje unosimo i koje su blagodet za zdravu vlas, kao na primer "dobre masnoce" (riba, kostunjavo voce), proteini, mahunarke, dovoljno tecnosti... Ali sta kada na red dodje "spoljna nega", narocito ona bazicna tj. samponi i balzami za kosu? Ja slobodno mogu da kazem da jos uvek nisam pronasla svoj "magican" sampon niti regenerator, i dalje sam u potrazi. Retko kada koristim iste proizvode za kosu, i uvek imam nekoliko na raspolaganju pa ih rotiram. Ovo su samponi i balzami koje ja trenutno koristim, neke manje neke vise...

outfit: Flowers and snakeskin

Terranova sleeveless shirt with floral print

I managed to pack all my things yesterday, in a few hours! Two suitcases, one traveling bag with cosmetics and make up, one wooden box with jewelry- bracelets, rings and necklaces plus one small metallic case with earrings and few watches. I'll be away for one month, so I prefer to have a "few more" things at disposal when I get dress than to break my head with the question "why I didn't bring exactly that skirt with me cause it would match so good with the new shirt I've just bought?!"...

Juce sam uspela da popakujem sve stvari, i to za par sati! Dva kofera, jedna putna torba sa kozmetikom i sminkom, drvena kutija (bolje reci kofer) sa narukvicama, ogrlicama i prstenjem plus metalno koferce sa mindjusama i par satova. Dovoljno?! Idem na mesec dana tako da je bolje da imam "par stvari vise" na raspolaganju nego da "razbijam" glavu pitanjem "zasto nisam ponela bas tu suknju sa sobom jer bi odlicno isla uz novu majicu koju sam upravo kupila?!"...

Essence: Soft touch mousse foundation

Essence Soft touch mousse foundation 08 matt tan

Every time I'm at home in Belgrade, whether I'm staying for a week or a month, DM drugstores are definitely my number 1 spot when it comes to cosmetics, hair, face and body products... Last time, in addition to many other (necessary and unnecessary) things I have found this foundation which was at that point (we're talking about the spring period) on sale and only the darkest shade- Matt tan 08. Knowing the color of my tan in the summer, I took it without thinking and I haven't made a mistake. Essence "Soft touch mousse" foundation, which comes in a cute glass jar, has airy foam texture with fine mat finishing touch, which is great for those with oily/combined skin. I have normal to dry skin, so applying some richer cream before this powder works really good for me. Its medium coverage and lasting are an additional plus in this period when we don't need/want anything heavy on our face! 

Uvek kada sam kuci u Beogradu, bilo da ostajem nedelju ili mesec dana, DM prodavnice su mi definitivno lokacija broj 1 sto se tice kozmetike, preparata za kosu, lice, telo... Poslednji put, pored brojnih drugih (potrebnih i nepotrebnih) stvari, pronasla sam i ovaj puder koji je u tom trenutku (pricamo o prolecnom periodu) bio na snizenju i to samo najtamnija nijansa Matt tan 08. Bez razmisljanja sam je uzela znajuci boju mog tena tokom leta, i nisam pogresila. Essence "Soft touch mousse" podloga, koja dolazi u slatkoj staklenoj teglici, je penasto vazdusaste strukture sa finim matirajucim zavrsnim efektom, sto je odlicno za one koji imaju masniju/kombinovanu kozu. Ja imam normalan tip koze, tako da mi nesto bogatija krema pre nanosenja ove podloge narocito prija. Njena srednja pokrivenost i postojanost su dodatni plusevi u ovom periodu kada nam nista tesko nije potrebno/pozeljno na licu!
