Hello! Please don’t be put off by the date on the left – today is July 28th, Monday! Because I have had kind of “different hectic weeks” it meant not enough time to post. Since I think this post is still VERY relevant to me, I’m recycling it again Hope you don’t mind and that you like it! I know we are in July, of course… But I’m still living in the first semester of the year… I confess – it was so good, I want to extend that feeling!
In June I only posted twice because of a trip and the World Cup.And in July only once Anyway, my sweet blogger-friends know exactly when I have a new post – when I comment on their blogs I don’t comment three times a week, but I’m a loyal reader. Despite that, I’m really interested in your posts! Do believe me!
The first half of the year is gone, the second has just started – I wanted to have track of what I have done so far and add the things I did in June, so to remember the time and the places. Here it goes!
Well… that was just a funny title… but on my first post about Rally Holidays in March I said I would prepare a post with my purchases. And the time is now!
Travelling often and the rules of airports and air lines “force” me to constantly buy new beauty products. I travel with hand luggage only and as everybody else, can only carry a small allowed plastic bag with a 100ml per product. It soon fills the bag! So I use the airport shops for my rescue, to have creams and perfumes with me at my destinations.
At the airport in Dublin before reaching Germany. Dior Dream Skin and Dior One Essential serum. Clarins double serum, Percy & Reed hair balm and some cute bangles
In Germany, from Yves Rocher (I love it!) Brushes, mascara, eyeshadows, scarf (Bijou Brigitte), eyeliners and two amazing perfumes: Neroli and Vanila Noir
In Berlin,Lanvin hair products, P2 hand serum, Catrice powder, Alverde lip gloss and highlighters (didn’t know them) and Guhlshampoo. I love it and can’t find it in England
I like to buy local makeup brands where I go… these items are from Poland (scarf included). I don’t believe in XXL lip glosses. I bought this one for the color – beautiful! – and by the way – it really works just as a lip gloss
Bottega Veneta Florabotanica perfume, Garnier BB cream, a garnet ring and crystal bracelet from Prague, some traditional hand painted and beaded items from Hungary
Detail of the garnet ring
Hermes head ribbon and a great pendant, in Rzeszow, Poland
To go to Greece – Brussels airport: Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise perfume, nail polish and The Body Shop serum. In Greece, eyeshadows, shower gels, soaps(from Greek brands) and Mavala nail coat
Some nice items from Thessaloniki – it’s a DIY project! I also bought some icons
Apr 14 – Tsakiris Mallas store in Thessaloniki. New brogues, jeans and shirt. More shoes in the bags… the shoes there were great!
Bare Minerals powder and facial cleanser, Nuxe serum and Max Factor primer
Anna Sui nail polish – isn’t that cute?
Gdansk is the world capital of amber. I bought some pieces there (shown here)
My friend Julie is so talented! I chose the gem and said what I wanted and she made this ring for me!
The list of purchases in March-April goes on… shoes (here), jackets, dresses, skirts, tops (here), sunnies, earrings (here), belts, bags (here), scarves, headbands, lipsticks, nail polishes, more perfumes… I’ll show more next week (the trip to Greece). Maybe too much? Well, I was happy and do believe me, life is too short to miss what you like.
I hope you are all having a great time and may you see many smiles!
Thank you so much for your visit and comments, I really love them!
If you have some time, there’s a new page on facebook called Vegetabible. It’ll be nice if you take a look and like it, if you think it’s cool! Thank you so much!
I’m so pleased to be back to the blogs I so much enjoy and now on facebook and twitteron a daily basis! As promised, here’s the second part of my Rally Holidays in March. As I said here, the pics are small, but it’s to keep track of where I’ve been, not about fashion. More about history and architecture
Last Monday I ended with some pictures in Gdansk, Poland. Let’s start from there again
Rainy and windy Gdansk, March 16, 2014. River Vistula and ship musem Soldek. Packing a suitcase to be presentable… you need to change accessories. Scarf by Codello, bought in Zurich, umbrella Marc Jacobs
The marvellous architecture of Gdansk!
That satchel by Miss Lulu, so handy! I didn’t like the flowers so much this time, so I added some felt hearts, with felt “buttons” inside. Sorry for “blurred me”, it’s just to give an idea
After that, I went to Kaliningrad, really interesting!
I love this picture! I just wanted the Russian words in the photo and myself – when I saw it, it looks like the model is kissing the woman walking there! So funny!
