I am not myself today

Just think how amazing it is when you can dress up in anyone or anything you want and try to make winter go away. Tuesday was one of these days, traditionally invented to scare away winter. It is called Pust and even people my age and older dress up and have fun. I was as excited as I could be, thinking about my costume for a very long time. Finally I found inspiration in a music video. And no Pust is not completed without pictures. Guess what they are representing! Xx

A Passion for Fragrance

It is something that I absolutely love and that relaxes me so much! I've been wanting it for quite a while but never got the chance to actually buy it and now I did (Vonj Narave, Prečna ulica 2). It is called the Yankee Candle and it comes in different shapes, sizes and scents. Owning a 'honey & spice' scent, I have to buy another more appropriate for spring that I hope will quickly come. There are more than 150 fragrances which all originate from one humble story....

......."Christmas 1969. Seventeen-year-old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melted some crayons to make her a candle. A neighbor saw it and convinced Mike to sell the candle to her. With that small stake, he bought enough wax to make two candles - one for his mom, and another to sell. That was the birth of Yankee Candle.".......

I think we all agree that of all stories, this one is in the Top 10 of the most sentimentally touching. Why not touch your loved once with these candles for Valentine's days?....

#DIY: Sunny Sunday

All you need is a cup, a waterproof black marker and Acrylic paint. Easy? Yes. Apply 3 layers of paint, between each applied layer wait for it to completely dry and then draw on the cup whatever you like with any colour you like. xx
