Apartment inspiration #2

Here's another post with some apartment inspiration - again from Ikea, so if you like anything, you know where to get it. :) Everything here is also pinned to my boards on Pinterest. 
I think the pots are just so pretty and usable - after you burn the candles you can use them in kitchen for peanuts or for dips. :)

Shoe cabinets with a practical shelf on top - great if you don't have much space in your hallway.

Wall storage for a small bathroom - I love it. :)

I want it - instead of a regular towel hanger this one is much more useful.

Another new product - pastel chairs. Retro-chic. :)

I have a thing for little breakfast/dining corners. :)

Next time I go to Ikea, I really have to check out the plastic containers for make up.

And another useful item for kitchen, bathroom or any room - shelf insert instantly doubles shelf space.

My kinda Valentine's day

My kinda Valentine's day

I'm not a fan of classic Valentine's day with cutesy and over the top gifts, all the hearts, flowers and I LOVE YOU cards. But after seeing all the posts about Valentine's day I just had to do it too. :) I don't know yet if I'm gonna do anything on Friday, but in case I do - here's the plan. My Valentine's day will be simple: good food, good alcohol and a few details. I'm planning to do sushi for quite some time now and I think it's a perfect food for a romantic dinner for two. A very simple, but beautiful dessert is a cupcake/muffin with strawberries. As for the drinks, sparkling rosé is one of my favorites and also very day appropriate (maybe not Moët, haha). With the Valentine's day themed details I wouldn't go too far; something very subtle like rose (or red) lipstick, nail polish and a sweet/floral perfume. If I have to choose a gift for me, it would be a book. :)

Makeup essentials

Me and makeup - we just don't mix. At least not on a daily basis. I usually put on some makeup for special occasions or when I have some spare time on my hands. Even then my makeup is normally very natural looking. If I feel brave, I use some black eyeliner and black eye shadow for "party time makeup" but that's not often. Since I got my new big Ray Ban glasses I use darker makeup more, because I think big glasses need "big makeup". :) But today I'm showing you products that I use the most. I like them all, but I'm looking for a new brown kajal pencil, new favorite lipgloss/lipstick and a fancier eye shadow palette.

1. Bourjois healthy balance unifying powder in 52 Vanille; 2. Everyday Minerals carnauba concealer in Fair (in the summer I combine it with Medium); 3. Beauty UK eye shadow palette no. 4 - Earth Child (I use the four brown shades in the middle); 4. Essence I <3 Extreme crazy volume mascara; 5. Essence Rebels soft matte lipgloss in 01 Mauve like a rockstar (I have to throw it away cause it's old, but I love it!) ; 6. S-he stylezone khol kajal pencil in 004 (nothing special, I need a better one); 7. Catrice defining blush in 020 Rose Royce

Here are the swatches of the lipgloss and the blush - the only two "not nude, brown or black" products I use. Photo was taken in natural daylight (as much as we have it here in rainy Ljubljana). :)

My favorite perfumes

My favorite perfumes

Just a quick post about my favorite perfumes. I'm currenty using four and I love them all. 1. Valentina by Valentino; 2. Cool Water by Davidoff; 3. Hypnotic Poison by Dior; 4. Lolita Lempicka by Lolita Lempicka. I'm no good at describing perfumes but I can tell you that I love sweet scents, the only exception here is Cool Water by Davidoff which is very fresh and summery.
