Lust for Life

We’re a generation that struggles to get a house and settle down. We don’t like saving. We’d rather enjoy our youth and spend our money on travelling, experiences and too many drinks over the weekend. But you know what? Life is short. And it’s a lesson I’ve learnt again after the tragic event that happened in Manchester. It’s so sad and scary and just so unfair. What am I personally gonna do about it? Spread positivity and enjoy the privilege of being alive, healthy and free to enjoy this beautiful world. We’re so damn lucky.

My favourite picnic dress

A lot of veggies, a bottle of fresh squeezed orange juice, special Italian salami, Greek olives and some home baked bread – that’s what I call a perfect picnic menu! I enjoyed every single bit of it and shortly after that, I fell asleep on the blanket. I woke up with a big labrador sniffing me, I was a bit surprised I’m not gonna lie, but he was the cutest.  He seemed very keen to join me on the blanket but decided to play with Dan for a bit instead.

I found this dress just as I was walking out of Primark. I couldn’t believe how pretty it is. And it’s even prettier in real life, it’s delicate, flowy and very soft. It’s the perfect dress for a relaxed but feminine look. Wear it with messy hair, no makeup and a bit of tan. I realised we didn’t take any pictures from the back, but the dress is backless too. And it was £15. I got it about 2 weeks ago, so hurry up, while stock lasts!

All you gotta do is say Yes

One of my favourite Spotify playlists is called Sweet Soul Sunday. You know that feeling when you just woke up, no rush to do anything, you go in the kitchen and prepare the first coffee. In the meantime, he comes and kisses you good morning. He’s as happy and relaxed as you are. There’s no better feeling that Sunday mornings. I like to add a playlist to my morning ritual, to make it even more relaxing. The right song would always put me in the right mood, sometimes I’d have the same feeling as when I’m away on holiday. You know when you usually wake up in a posh hotel with the best view and have that feeling that the world is yours? You’re a bit overwhelmed by so much beauty in this world and all emotions running through your veins. Oh yes, the right playlist and the fresh smell of coffee can really give you this feeling. Today’s song was called Say Yes – Floetry. It’s a kind of song that would send shivers up and down your spine Click Play Below to listen

Wearing a Dress in the British Summer

I might as well give up shaving my legs once and for all. All the effort, all the drama, and no appropriate weather to show them off. I mean, why? Why England, why? And on top of this, you go shopping and there’s floral dresses everywhere. They’re all made of delicate fabrics that won’t keep you warm at all. They must think we all spend our weekends in Spain or something. The struggle is real, especially for someone like me who prefers to wear dresses all the time.

I know there’s this big trend right now to wear a dress on top of your jeans. But short and not so skinny girls like me cannot pull that off, unless you want to look more unflattering. So instead, I prefer to go back to my old habits: chunky knit on top. And if you match the colours like I did, it looks like one single clothing item.

And if you are one of those lucky girls who lives in a warm country, well.. I’m not jealous of you because you must be broke right now considering how pretty the new ss17 dresses are.

The best facial in Manchester

flint plus flint harvey nichols facial review

Not long ago I was moaning about being constantly sick. Because of this, I was very dehydrated and my skin wasn’t having it. I’m still not where I wanna be, but I have been focusing a lot on this: invested in some crazy expensive serums and had one or two facials, as you do.

Today I want to talk more about the last facial I had at Flint+Flint in Harvey Nichols Manchester. My Transderm facial left my skin so soft and hydrated, I had to give you a shout about it. I basically had 45 minutes of bliss when the lovely lady deep cleaned my face and then started using this tiny electric tool with micro-currents to massage my skin. The purpose of this facial is to offer a firming and tightening treatment for any skin type: it will get rid of fine lines, it will deep clean your skin and get rid of annoying blemishes. Long story short – after this treatment you look rested, fresh and glowing. I think the perfect time to do the Transderm facial is just before a special event.

The whole experience was lovely and I can’t wait to go back. The girls recommended to do this on a regular basis for a better skin. They also recommend using the Flint+Flint products at home for the best results. Because having a facial is still a bit of a luxury thing for me, I can’t stick to it. But I honestly think it does wonders to my skin and I will probably go for it before a special occasion.

My treatment costs £75, but feel free to see the whole price list here. They also do discounts for multibuys and encourage everyone to give them a call for the best price offers.
