A Relaxing Summer Sunday

DSC_0615post DSC_0617post DSC_0623post
The last few days have been quite stormy, the temperatures got 15 degrees lower for just a day and many people are already ready to welcome the autumn. However, I have no intention of doing it. Today sun’s shining again and my plan is to have a chilled Sunday.

I love a good read on a weekend and that’s why I’m always trying to have my Kindle around. I’m currently reading Ronnie O’Sullivan‘s Running: The Autobiography because he’s a very interesting person and an incredibly gifted snooker player.

Water is something that’s very important for me, I drink a lot of water but from time to time I allow myself something sweeter, as well. Something like L’Aranciata from San Pellegrino (summer in a can!) or the Peach Ice Tea from San Benedetto.

I also like doing a face mask like Freeman‘s Avocado and Oatmeal Clay Mask that I’m trying today and painting my nails with a bright nail polish like the shade 360 from KIKO. I’ve tried the face mask only a couple of times, so I need to use it longer to actually share my opinion but so far, it makes my skin very soft, tightens the pores and washes off much easier than most of the clay masks that I’ve used.

I’m still not sure about the White Cotton & Pink Lily body mist from Victoria’s Secret because yes, it does smell fresh and clean but it doesn’t last very long on me. Also, the bottle is not working very well, so the quality of the product doesn’t match the price tag and I was expecting more from it.

I try to always remember to nourish my feet and I know many people would hate it in the summer because they recall sticky and unpleasant feeling but the foot gel that I’m currently using is really good. It’s actually from the drugstore and it’s the Balea Mint Oil and Blood Orange Extract Foot Gel Lotion. It absorbs really quickly, has a light texture and smells very fresh, it also has a cooling effect which is perfect for the summer.

How are you going to spend your Sunday?


Cosy Sunday

It’s 3 degrees outside and in such days I just want to stay home. Plus, I really do like being at home, makes me feel calm, I can relax but I can also do something productive.

Usually, I use weekends to spend more time with my boyfriend inside or outside, to bake, to blog and such pleasant things.

It’s autumn/winter, so it calls for warm socks, hot drinks and nourishing skincare.

Lip balm is one of my favourite skincare items, I have at least two different in every room, bag, pocket, jacket, it’s a little bit crazy. The Body Shop Honeymania is one that I’ve had for a year probably but never opened it – why? Because I keep buying and lose track of what I have. It’s a delicious one, it’s really nourishing and cute.

I’ve mentioned how much I love Origins Charcoal mask here, I combine it it with a hydrating one and that’s why I use it only on my T-zone in the autumn and winter. It’s not drying but my cheeks need a little bit more hydration in the colder months.

Sunday is the perfect day for painting your nails, just pick your favourite shade and enjoy. I decided to turn Ciaté London‘s Beach House Collection from a summer set to a winter fairytale by combining two of the shades. First I apply the beautiful nude Amazing Gracie and then top it with a bit of sparkle from Party Shoes. It’s so pretty and festive, so nice that I can use this collection not only in the summer.

After my nail polish is dry, I like to apply hand cream because my hands tend to get super red and flaky when it’s cold, it’s painful, really painful. Luckily, Burt’s Bees Almond and Milk Hand Cream makes my hands soft, feels very soothing and smells wonderful. I just love their products!

When I’m finished with the tasks, my beloved Kindle and a snuggly blanket are my best friends to spend the time with.

How are you spending your cosy Sundays? Wish you a lovely one!
