Review – Lumene Skincare

I had a layover in Helsinki on my way back from my recent trip to Estonia and had time to do some airport shopping. Finnair flight magazine had an article about Lumene‘s rebranding story, how they wanted to strengthen the image on a global scale as well as within its native market of Finland. As the products are also on sale in Estonia I’m quite familiar with them so I definitely wanted to be able to take a peek at the new range and design. I ended up buying these two from their Invisible Illumination range:

Hair care products’ review

I haven’t done a product review post for a long time but as I have become to love two particular hair products this summer, I thought I’d share my thoughts with the blogosphere. Continue reading “Hair care products’ review”

One year of blogging

A year ago I set up my lifestyle blog and if I’m totally honest, I didn’t have a plan. A strategy. A content calendar. What kind of marketer am I?! 🙂 But perhaps because I spend a lot of time planning and strategising in Excel at work that I felt, no, my blog doesn’t need a strict posting schedule. For once, I’ll just take a really laid back approach to this. So, I think I really did. Which is why this will be more my reflection of the past year and less about giving advice for people who want to start blogging. I’m not here to give someone the ABCs of lifestyle blogging because I’m no expert either. Just do what feels right! ❤ Continue reading “One year of blogging”

Bourjois 3 for 2

They didn’t have a dark enough shade so I ended up getting a primer instead. There is no logic, I know! Then I decided a new mascara and eye pencil/liner were also due. I’ve already started using them all and here’s my feedback: Continue reading “Bourjois 3 for 2”

Beauty products in Lanzarote 

During our recent holiday to Lanzarote I was quite interested in local skincare range and was happy to find some lovely lavender products. I just like lavender, ok?! 🙂 After my own experiments with making soaps of goat’s milk soap base, I’m excited to try this one made on the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura: Continue reading “Beauty products in Lanzarote “

L’Occitane Verbena Range

Since my husband introduced me to this range (yes, really!), I’ve been a real fan. We’ve been buying the foaming bath for years now and last Christmas he surprised me with a gift box full of Verbena goodies.

Verbena

Among all the aromatic herbs that grow along the paths of Provence, there is one whose lemony freshness revives the body and mind. Its name is Verbena.
When baskets are piled high with freshly harvested green verbena leaves, its distinctive fragrance fills the air around the markets of Provence.
