RELAXING NIGHT ROUTINE

This weekend has been hectic as hell.:) From studying for my exam which I have tomorrow, to working for 10 hours and also going to a job interview for a job of my dreams. There always comes a weekend or a week where I have so much stuff to do I run around like crazy. And by the time I get home there is just nothing I would do except this routine which really makes me feel de-stressed and maybe gives me the energy I need to make the last few things on my computer. For me it'S important to have a busy schedule and do stuff because I easily get bored. :)

The first thing I do when I get home is have a nice warm shower. I found out that some shower gels really affect my mood. For example I have been using this shower gel Cocoa butter & coconut oil by FA. The smell really stays on for my skin quite a while and it makes me feel really good after it. 
The next step is just to make myself as comfortable as possible which means getting dressed into sweat pants and a comfy shirt. I was recently in a nike store and I bought some really comfortable sweat pants which I practically live in now. 
And the last step before getting back to the computer work is just making a great cup of tea or something warm to drink and enjoy every sip of the great beverage.
Enjoy your holidays and spend them with loved ones. What really makes this time special is just enjoying time with people you love.
:) Stay Beautiful

COLD WEATHER MUST HAVE TEAS!!

Brrr.. Even when I'm writing this(I just came to my room) I'm so cold that a cup of tea sounds the best thing in the world. Every year at this time we had a whole collection of teas at home. Now that I don't leave home anymore my collection is a lot smaller but still I wanted to share with you my favourite teas for the winter season. This three teas are just amazing. Some of them I recently discovered and some of them I found when visiting New York this summer.


This tea is just the most delicious thing in the world. I first had real chai tea over the summer while spending some time in New York. I feel in love so I had to buy some for me to take home. Well I was searching through Whole Foods and there it was bought and love it! Although I almost out and they don't ship to Slovenia. I will cry when I put the last tea bag in the garbage :P.



This two I found recently. I was in the grocery store last time and I decided to take time and find some  new tea for me to try. Well they had it in a special offer aisle. Although I usually don't drink mint tea when I tried it I was very pleasantly surprised. I loved the hidden notes of cranberries in there as well.


This last one was also a surprise for me. I loved making mine own ginger tea from fresh ginger last winter. But I decided to try the store bought one for a change. And it doesn't have the same taste but I like it anyway.

MY FIRST DIY MUG PROJECT

In preparation to holiday gift giving I tried to make my own mug. I think it turned out pretty good for the first time :D. But I do need to practise some more. These mugs are such a great for a personalised gift. You can put on them anything you want.
Let's get into the DIY. Here are three simple things you'll need:
- One coloured mug

 - Coloured pencils(special for glass and ceramics)

It is all up to. You can draw, write or whatever your heart desire. I choose to write to my favourite quote on the outside. And on the inside I made a kind of a secret message.
This is how it turned out. :)

HOW TO BEAT WINTER TIREDNESS AND FATIQUE

Lately I've been feeling so tired all the time. It is true that I've been spending from 6-9 hours in classes which means being closed in the class and sitting without any fresh air for a while. It got to the point where I couldn't stay in class because I was too tired to focus so I just didn't go.
I don't like myself like this so I decided to take a little time and research what can help with my tiredness, fatigue or  this sluggish mood.
1. WATER! WATER! WATER!
I can't stress this one enough. I know you can read almost everywhere that hydration is a very important thing in weight-loss. But water also plays a huge roll in feeling tired. Being dehydrated can also result in feeling without energy. I admit since I've been to college I neglect drinking enough water and I must admit when I have a good day and I drink lots of water it really makes a big difference. But I'm really working on this! Since it's winter time because of the cold outside we sometimes forget to drink so let's change that.
2. PROTEIN AND OMEGA FATS
Protein combined with omega fats it's a great way to re-fuel your body. Also protein can keep you satisfied for longer than just having a candy bar. My favourite sources of protein are greek yogurt, fish, almonds(which also contain good fats!)-although you can quickly eat too much almonds so keep them portioned.  I actually love all of the nuts but my favourite ones are walnuts which are tasty. :)



3. UP THE VITAMIN B DOSE
I know this is not widely known but vitamin B helps our body to produce red blood cells which are the transporters of oxygen around the body. The vitamin B is found in bananas, spinach, potato, seafood, etc.

NOVEMBER FAVOURITES

November is almost over and the “happy december” is right around the corner. My favorites post have been a bit rear but I’ll try to find something interesting in each month to share with you. Well this month has been in the theme of preparing for christmas. Recently it has became really cold here and I’ve found myself getting in the whole winter/ cold weather routine even more. I love to drink tea, wear snuggly scarf and have everything all about being warm and comfortable. It has also started to be the studying season for me. Since it is my first year at college I’m still getting used to the whole studying, classes routine. 
My first favourite thing for this month have been this super cute socks I found at H&M. actually my mommy bought them for me;). The packaging is cute and festive. I know they are nothing special but to me little things add a whole lot of value to purchase, for example cute packaging, etc. 

The second thing I found myself having quite a lot for this month has been VITAMIN WELL DEFENCE drink. It comes in a bunch of different flavours but my favorite one has been citrus/elder. It’s delious.

The next thing is a song. I know I’m going to be judge by some of you for listening to it this early. But hey it’s an incredible song and the singer has been in Slovenia recently and I’m so sad I didn’t get to go to his concert. Still I love his voice and this song really makes me feel super excited for christmas time. The song is called Cold December Night and is sang by Michael Buble. Check it out I promise you won’t be sorry. It’s a bit different song then all of those classics.

A must during this cold month are absolutely scarfs. I especially love those huge ones who almost act as a pillow in case you are stuck somewhere sitting for a while :P. They are also very useful since they make your neck nice and warm. And what would winter be without a good cup of tea. Right?!?! I see myself always making tea whenever I come from classes all cold and tired from the day but I just have to squeeze some studying time in my day. Tea always makes me feel calm and relaxed. My favourite one lately has been Chai Tea, but I also love the Herbal one by Lyod.

There is also another special things I want to introduce you to guys. It’s my favourite things all the time but my puppy has really deserved to be in the post this month. Meet my puppy Tim!! He is the cutest, sweetest, cuddly creature ever. He always makes me feel better if I have a bad day. :)

FAVOURITE PINTEREST DIY CHRISTMAS IDEAS

Since christmas time is coming closer with lightning speed I wanted to share with you guys 4 of my favourite diy christmas ideas from pinterest. Each year I try to be unique with my gift to the family since I don't have a lot of money to spend, but I still want to give them something they would enjoy and like.
Pinterest is seriously the coolest place ever. I stumbled upon it watching some youtube videos of my favourite beauty gurus. It really has everything your heart desires and more. So I like to go there either to find some great new food recipes or to get some new DIY ideas.
So let's just get into the ideas:
1. DIY MUGS I know I know.  Before you judge me since this is a very broad known diy, this is one of my favourite ones. You can really make it personal to the person you are giving it to. I think they are super cute and sweet gift idea. Here are just some examples of cute writings. But as I said you can put on them whatever you want.
picture from: Cute Mugs
2. DIY HOMEMADE LIP BALM  It really is a great and original gift for girls. I have to carry my lip balm with me and so do my friends. I think it makes a great adjustable gift. You can put whatever kind of essential oil in it to adjust it to your liking. Again I found a great site for this Diy through pinterst.
The recipe found on: Homemade Lip Balm
3. DIY MASON JAR BROWNIE MIX What can be better than putting the whole jar in a bowl adding a few ingredients and you get the perfect brownies ready to go to the oven. I've seen so many of this food mason jar dig's it's insane. But since I'm a food lover I had to include this in my post.
Get the recipe here: MASON JAR BROWNIE MIX
4. DIY SURVIVAL KITS When I saw this for the first time I thought it was such a great idea.  There is so many options. Making the kit personalised with the theme of it. You can make it for friends, family or your boyfriend/girlfriend so you can enjoy the fruits of your labour as well ;). 
This great idea is available here: SURVIVAL KITS
I hope you liked my suggestions and you are going to try some of them. I enjoy DIYs and I think they are super fun.

LONG TIME NO SEE!!

I know it has been way too long from my last post. Been having some doubts if this blogging really is for me. But at the end of the day I really miss sharing my thoughts and my life with people who take the time and read my blog. :)
Well a lot has happened since I last posted. Finished high school and now I'm in college. It has been nice since I really enjoy the major I'm going to get a degree in. I've also been traveling a lot. I love traveling so I made it a priority to travel as much as I can.
First this september I had the most amazing thing happen to me. I visited New York! I wanted that since I can remember and the fact that I got to do it was just incredible. I'm going to insert some photos from the trip.




New posts coming up really soon !
Stay Beautiful :)
