Just imagine walking into a spacious dressing room in the early morning with beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. You look around the room and sunshine is bursting in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. You open the curtains and its beautiful outside: close to the forest, birds flying by, scent of blooming flowers in the spring time air. The room fills up with fresh ground coffee you are carrying around. This luxurious and private hideaway space is yours with dominating colours of white, green and grey/black. The air is so fresh and light from the filtrating houseplants. The space is yours to relax in and read a book in the evening or gently wake up in the morning.
About The Project:
I wanted to create a beautiful master dressing room with lots of windows inviting the sunshine in. The style of the room is modern classic with chandeliers and house plants, light plain walls, modern furnishings like a sofa and dressing table. I wanted to craft a mood board with different materials and take loads of pictures to create a digital mood board. I used different materials on the crafting a board to create the sense and feeling of the emotion which can be felt and the windows can be opened, the smell of roasted coffee beans can be smelled on the mood board. The idea of the project came from ARHAUS, who inspired me to create my ideal dressing room and describe how would it look like. I used their chandeliers in my mood board as I thought they looked incredibly gorgeous (check out other pendant lighting options here). I took on this project with enthusiasm as I had loads of ideas how I would like my perfect dressing room to look like. The main challenge of the project for me was the crafting skills which I do not have, and my mood board does not look anything like I imagined. However, what I have plenty of is imagination and I managed to bring the main concept of the original idea I had. For me it might sound lame but this project was a journey rather than a destination.

Hey Ladies! I had such a lovely pampering experience with these products last night they all go so well together! Everything feels and smells so lush! I started with Huygens face scrub which I fell in love with, it is 98% natural ingredients, it is quite lemony and refreshing. Perfect for spring! It nicely exfoliated my face skin and then I moved to the Keeome face mask for 25 min which is re-hydrating. Oh my feels so good! It just looked like someone punched me in the face when I had it on haha :) After I washed the face mask away I used rosewood reviving mist from Monuspa. It is also very refreshing I will definitely be going to use it over hot summer days any time I want to feel uplifted and refreshed. And this is one of the all time favorites: Beauty Sleep Concentrate from Neal's Yard. It literally helps to sooth skin overnight. It's quite pricey but it is worth every penny! After using all these together my skin looked so well just like I just left the spa! Whish shave cream added to my beautifying evening as it is nourishing and soothing with natural ingredients. All I am going to say here about it :) And the last but not least great smelling and soft hand cream from Merci Handy. Oh and looking at it helps as well as packaging is so cute!!! The hand cream sort of smells a bit like perfume !
I don't write very often about beauty products but this combination felt such a treat and I thought it was worth a share!

Hello, As spring has definitely sprung and weather is amazing right now, I decided to have a little change and just get my looks refreshed! So I cut my hair and I am loving it! I was a little apprehensive at first, however, no regrets I just went for it and I am in love with it! Even hazel seems to love it haha!
As it is spring and sun is out I am ditching dark colors and going for little warmer look, in this case PINK. I never been pink style girl in my life but as I am getting older I began to love it more and more, even it has been trendy for past few years I think. And I found this bargain jumper in Primark for only £5 with weekend vibes all over. I am just wearing this during the week as I am working most weekends now. And I sort of got matching pink lipstick which I am in love with :) It is definitely pink season for me. I styled the jumper with my high waist jeans. I don't think I will ever go back to normal waist jeans it's kinda most comfy and shows the best in you if you know what I mean.
As this OOTD is all about simple and pretty this care piece makes the finished look. I have seen this hair piece a long time ago but I didn't get it but I never forgot about it so I just went and go it in the end after thinking about it for few months haha. Even it was only few pounds. Overall I am happy with this springs change and best accessory is a happy person inside!

Hello! Right, I am being very naughty again as I missed one day yesterday :) However, I am back to it today and that's what matters! So it is day 23 and I got one week left!!! Hopefully I will manage to stick this week out, I think if all I had to do is just to put my feet in, have a relaxing 15 minutes, I probably wouldn't have missed a day but having to do a blog post which means taking pictures and writing which I enjoy, but sometimes a whole day is not enough for everything. The other soak I did the other day for muscle pain for my tired legs did help me wonders I even forgot I had it until now than I am reflecting on my previous soak. I am not hanging around the bushes today and again using one of my really luxurious bath hearts with dried marigold which is great for the skin and has anti inflammatory properties. This week even I haven't been doing foot baths everyday day however as much as I did I feel quite relaxed and grounded I am sleeping well so definitely I can see benefits from it.
What I am finding it hard is to do is to take a decent photos for this challenge as I am doing it in the evenings everything just don't seem right but myself I prefer to read something with pictures so I am still taking them for my blog :) and I think it will be nice to look at them in a years time and say oh yeah I did this and that and it look like this and that and this is what I love about blogging but hey it's needs all new article about it :)

HI LADIES! I just wanted to do quick blog post on very trendy items at the moment PINS. I personally love this trend! All my life I liked pins and now it is trendier than ever so many cool young artists out there it is very exiting times for pins - they are cute they playful they are trendy! I wear my pins like broaches which is great and with the right pin I feel like I can bring outfit together with tiny little detail and still look good! I love these pins from INKBERRYPRINT they are all so cute I got three of them! This trendy cactus pin I think it's my favorite at the moment as I have the love for plants in general and have cactus at home it's like my own special way of expressing my love to plants. As we know fashion is an expression of lifestyle and personality.
Thanks for reading!
Hello I was planning to do some sort of special soak for valentines day but that went through the roof as I have been very busy all day and then the evening came we ate our £20 meal deal from M&S witch was delicious and for yesterday I don't really have an excuse yep sorry no excuse! Anyway I am looking forward for my soak tonight as it's getting prepared right now! I have been on my feet all day literally all day as my phone shows I walked 15 km which is great however my muscle sore now and I am making a soak to sooth it:)
Rosemary essential oil is great for muscle pain unfortunately I do not have one and I don't know why it is definitely on my next shopping list! But what I do have is Rosemary in my garden which I am using today :) So I cut quite a generous amount of Rosemary and put hot water over it and left it to soak for 15 -20 minutes to get the benefits out of it water become quite green as well. And I added some more cold and hot water afterwards to make it more comfortable. Rosemary is great ache and pain it also has some antidepressant affect so it is great to relax.
Rosemary soak recipe:
- Bunch of rosemary
- 1 table spoon of salt
- half of tea spoon of coconut oil
- 5 drops of chamomile essential oil
Chamomile and rosemary blends very well together. Apparently in numerous sources Rosemary it's great for the brain so I guess if you are the student it's something to use on a regular basis.
