What a crazy and amazing weekend I had! I would have to write a few pages of text to tell you all about it. So long story short- the festival was fantastic. The positive energy among the people, the spirit and the amazing music – it all made me just extremely happy. I was always so exhausted at the end of the day but it was the type of exhausted that makes you want to do it all over again the next day. If you’ve never been to a musical festival before then you should. It’s so much fun! I’ll show you some pictures once my sister sends them to me.
I also went shopping the day before the festival and bought a lot of amazing things. Want to see what I got? I can show you in the next post if you like. What I noticed while shopping that Aztec print is still trending. I love that because I’ve been into that pattern ever since summer 2012. So I’ve been looking through stuff I live in Aztec print to share with you. I’m planning on doing it on my nails. I’ll show you the final effect when it’s done.
What a good day for me. I was so excited about going to the second day of the Festival I mentioned in the post below and today I found out that I’m also going to the third day! How awesome, couldn’t be happier. To the artists I mentioned before you can add : Kasabian, Outkast, David Guetta, Limp Bizkit and others. I am beyond happy.
Apart from enjoying the music I can’t wait to see what people will wear. I really love the festival fashion. Usually it’s very summery, stylish and interesting.
Unfortunately I’ve never been to Coachella before (but I definitely intend to one day ) but I love watching the pictures to check out what celebrities wore. Some are very inspiring and thanks to some I know what I definitely wouldn’t want to wear.
Here are pictures of some of my favorite celebrity outfits from different festivals.
I’m in a great mood because I as soon as I woke up, I looked at my calendar and there it was – highlighted in yellow the date 14th of June. Not only it’s the birthday of my best friend but also the day when I’m going to Orange Warsaw Festival!
I am absolutely buzzing! Last year I went with my best friend and I enjoyed myself so much. I think there’s something magical about live music. Even if I don’t know the band too well I still have so much fun at their concert. This year the festival is 3 days long but unfortunately I’m only going for 1 day. Here’s a list of bands that I’m going to have the pleasure to see live:
Florence and the Machine
Chase & Status
Bombay Bicycle Club
and 2 polish artists:
How awesome is that right? Are any of you going to the festival? Let me know if you are. I’m leaving you now with one of my favorite songs by The Kooks, can’t wait to hear them live!
In the meanwhile I’m going to fix my breakfast now and cuddle my cute little cat!
I realized that you liked the post about hair treatment so today I’m going to give you some ideas on how to treat dry hair. Even if your hair is in good shape, remember that it can change after the holidays. The combination of sun and salt isn’t really healthy for our hair. I remember that last year after I came back from sailing, my hair desperately needed help. Remember to wear hats and protect your hair and face on the beach!
1. Avocado conditioner
Find a ripe, soft avocado, peel it and get rid of the seed. Mash it and add a teaspoon of wheat germ oil and a teaspoon of jojoba oil. Apply the conditioner to your hair after washing it while it’s still wet. Wait 15-30 minutes and then wash it off. Avocado helps to moisturize the hair right from the roots hair cells to the tips, and strengthens it by providing many useful proteins.
2. Olive oil conditioner
Mix 60 grams of olive oil with 60 grams of aloe vera gel and to that mixture add 5 drops of rosemary oil and 5 drops of sandalwood oil. Apply the conditioner to your hair starting with the tips. Leave it on for 1-2 hours, then wash it off. Olive oil is a natural emollient and aloe is a natural moisturizer.
3. General tips
If possible avoid using the hair dryer, let the hair dry by itself which shouldn’t be difficult with this weather
Rinse your hair with warm, not hot, water
Use baby shampoo – it doesn’t dry your hair as much
Hope you liked those tips. Remember that you can like my facebook page to always be updated. I go crazy happy with every single “Like”!
Hope you all had a great Monday (if that’s even possible :P). It’s such a lovely warm day in Warsaw today so I definitely am not going to stay in and study all day. I’m meeting up a friend of mine for lunch but we’re probably also going to hang out in the park a little bit. The only problem I have with the weather now is my allergy, I have a constant cold and my eyes are all itchy. It’s even more uncomfortable because I wear contact lenses. I think I’ve tried all medications which are available and nothing works. If you know ANYTHING that could help me then please let me know
Here’s a black and white outfit idea for you guys. I love lace skirts this season! All the clothes are from Topshop. I can’t wait to visit London’s Topshop which is much bigger than the one in Poland.
Anyway, I have to study a bit before so i have to hurry. I still have a post for you today so tune in later! <3
Posting yesterday’s post was a nightmare I had “technical difficulties” and it took me an hour to finally post it. Let’s hope this time everything will go smoothly.
The most beautiful accessory a girl can ever have is her smile. Whitening your teeth at the dentists is both expensive and painful. There are some home methods with which you can whiten your them without destroying them as much.
1. Banana peel has minerals and vitamins, so it is an ideal home teeth bleach. Choose a ripe banana, peel it and rub it’s skin against your teeth for a few minutes. Repeat this process twice a day. If you have tartar, rub it for a little bit longer.
2. Prepare own home whitening paste, consisting of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Mix two teaspoons of baking soda with two/three teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide. Apply the paste on the brush, spread it on the teeth and leave it there for a few minutes.
Then wash the paste using a whitening toothpaste or simply rinse your mouth with water. Use the paste once a week for the result to be permanent. Try not to swallow the mixture – if you do, wash it down with plenty of water.
3. Lemon juice paste. Squeeze the juice from a fresh lemon and mix it with a bit of salt. Then brush your teeth with it. If you want the effect was more visible, you can substitute the salt with baking soda.
Remember not to use the last two methods too often not to destroy your tooth enamel.
I’m going to spend my day on sending CVs to different companies in London. Sooo boooring I know it will be worth it, wish me luck!
How was your week guys? I finally finished classes and I only have 3 exams left. Soon I’ll be able to say that I’m officially on holidays! Yaaay!
As soon as that happens guess where I’m going? I’m moving to London for at least a couple of months. How exciting is that, right?! London is one of my favorite cities but I’ve only been there as a tourist before. I wonder if it’ll be so wonderful to live and work there. Anyway I can’t wait to find out.
Summer’s back (for good I hope) in Warsaw, so I want to share with you today a list of things without which, my summer just could not happen.
1. Swimsuit is a must. I love swimming and laying on the beach tanning and enjoying time with friends. I’ve already shown you a few of my favorite swimsuits which I’m thinking of getting here.
2. Shorts are the most used piece of clothing in the summer for me. Depending on the shorts they can be casual for everyday use or more elegant in which I like to go out in the summer.
3. Sunglasses do not only protect our eyes but can also be a perfect accessory.
4. Maxi-dresses are so comfortable and so easy. You can wear them with a pair of sandals, add a nice bracelet or a necklace and effortlessly look stylish.
5.Sandals obviously. I destroy shoes so quickly that I need to buy at least 2 pair of sandals every summer. Usually I get a pair of flat, gladiator style ones and a pair of platform heels or sandals with a mid heal.
6. Blazer. I need to have something to put on when it gets windy or cold later at night. This year I’m going to go with an over-sized one as I love the way they look and you can wear whatever you like under them.
7. Crop tops are my obsession this summer. I already got 3 new ones which I didn’t get a chance to wear yet, can’t wait!
I’m so miserable, the weather was summerlike and now it’s cold and the rain is pouring outside. Sorry for the one short post yesterday but I was exhausted. I only came back home at around 10 pm.
Today I am excited to write about acne. A lot of people have to deal with this problem in their life and sometimes it causes depression, it lowers your self esteem and makes many people miserable. Having beautiful, naturally clear, shiny skin is amazing but remember that it’s what we have on the inside that makes us who we are. Acne only lasts for a while, you’ll get rid of it.
If you’re going through that now, or know someone who’s dealing with it read and pass on. There are a lot of how methods to deal with it and remember that natural / home ways are always better than drugs. Sometimes there is no choice but before you get there, try this or try both metods and see what works for you.
1. Benzoyl peroxide
Use lotion or cleaner which contains benzoyl peroxide – it helps unblock your pores, it also helps get rid of the bacteria inside them.
Whenever you see another pimple appearing grab an ice cube, wrap it up with foil and cool down the area where you see the pimple. Do it at least twice a day but not for longer than for 5 minutes.
3. Tea tree oil
Apply a drop of tea tree oil 3 times a day on the inflamed places. It will speed up the healing.
4. Wine vinegar / lemon juice
Clean your skin with a drop of one of either on a cotton pad. It will clean your pores
It’s best if you actually have the plant but if not buy natural products which contain aloe. It soothes the inflammations perfectly.
Face scrubs and face washers – they spread the bacteria all over your face perfectly Don’t wash your face too often or you’ll get rid of the natural oil in your skin which will be a stimulating factor for the acne. Men: remember to disinfect your razors after shaving!
I’m going to take a shower now and I’ll talk to you soon! Another post coming up so tune in later
Ps. There are also acne fighting foods, would you like to read about that?
With summer arriving very soon I decided to share with you some accessories that can’t be missed this season. Accessories can make a boring outfit look fancy and a plain dress look stylish that’s why I think we should take special care when we pick them. Below you can see the ones I fell in love with and are at the same time gorgeous and cheap. I picked pieces that will match my clothes. Remember that we all have different colour preferences but many of them can be found in different colours. Enjoy!
You’ve been asking me to do more posts on make-up, nails and hair products. One thing you have to know is that when it comes to make-up I’m pretty boring. My everyday make-up is very simple – I like the fresh face look and eyeliner . That’s why today i decided to pick 5 products without which I wouldn’t be able to do my make-up. These would also be the products I would pick if I only could choose 5 things to keep out of my whole collection. Let’s get started!
1. Mascara – Extended Play Lash by MAC
I’ve been using this mascara for a while now. In the meanwhile I tried out others but this is my absolute favourite. I’ve mentioned it before on my blog ( http://www.whatwelove.eu/mascara/ ) so you’ll have a more detailed description there.
2. Eyeliner – AQUA LINER Diamond Black by MAKE UP FOR EVER
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve tried out around 20 different eyeliners. This is a waterproof eyeliner which is very highly pigmented and easy to apply because of the accurate brush. I had the problem of smudging with other eyeliners. I live in Poland so we have snow, rain, wind and in the summer the temperature can rise up to 35 degrees. This eyeliner never smudged in all these different conditions so I highly recommend it. I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.
3. Foundation – Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation by MAC
This was the first MAC foundation I ever bought and fell in love with it. The coverage is perfect and at the same time it’s very light. Sometimes I need to use a concealer but normally it covers all imperfections very well. It also adapts to my skin tone really well and is easy to apply. I’m very happy with it
I got this palette as a present. I probably wouldn’t buy it myself because like I’ve mentioned before I don’t really use eyeshadow. Once I got it, I tried it and loved it. I mostly use the golden colours and the brown because I do my eyebrow with it. So it’s a 2 in 1 solution for me.
What I love about this one is that it’s not too glittery and it lasts really long in comparison to the others I used before. The one on the left is my favourite colour but I also have a pink one and a silver one. It’s not really as dark as it looks in the picture. The thing that might be a minus is that it’s a bit sticky.
Hope you liked my little countdown. If you want me to review a product in a more detailed way then let me know in the comments below.
