first communion

So Jakov had his first communion on Sunday. 
It was such a lovely mass and the children sang so beautifully...made me tear up everytime.

We celebrated at home with my kids godparents. There was A LOT of food and my bf made this yummy cake for Jakov.

The weather ended up being beautiful (in the morning it rained a bit and was very windy). It turned out like I hoped (for Jakov and Mark who had his confirmation two weeks ago), good food, great company...what more do you want. :)

weekend in photos

If you follow me on instagram you'll know that I love flowers (nature really).

There was a teacher/parents meeting for Jakov's class and I saw Jakov's work of art on the wall...I think I'm going to have to frame this one. :)

Due to my obsession with AHA's I picked up Cosmel's New Cell Cream AHA 8% + Green Tea and so far I'm really liking it! It's still to early to say but first impressions are great!

swatch it - vapour organic beauty

So I made a little order at Naturisimo. My husband and son both like Schmidt's Tea Tree deodorant (I bought the travel size for them to test out).

I also ordered a sample of Vapour's Mesmerize Eye Color in Flash. It is GORGEOUS!!!

The only problem is I have really REALLY dark eye circles (always have and it seems they're getting darker as I get older) and to show you I'm sharing this photo of me on my wedding day (I'm looking down so you can see my eye lids). I'm not wearing a stitch of eyeshadow!!! I've had girls ask me what shade I wear on my lids! LOL! 

It doesn't show up on my eye lids so I tried putting it on my cheeks and it gives me a nice sun kissed look! I actually really love it. It blends like butta! Just gorgeous! I wish I had normal eye lids! lol.

happy earth day + sale

Happy Earth Day!

I am grateful to my parents who have taught me early on to love and take care of our earth. My family was happiest camping every summer. And I mean real tents. Every summer we went (along with my cousins and friends) to Kill Bear Park (sounds rough...with the 'kill' but I promise no bears (or any other animals) were killed) which is a little past Parry Sound. 

Yesterday I heard disturbing news over the radio. Croatia is one of the worst countries in the EU for recycling, Zagreb one of the worst cities. It pisses me off but doesn't surprise me. I personally think Croatians are just too lazy to recycle. 

What can I do about it? Firstly I can teach my kids by example not to be wasteful in every aspect of our lives. Not to litter, to recycle, to support companies that are eco friendly. Am I perfect....absolutley not. But I'm trying my best.

As a business owner I am often in conflict with myself. I'm trying not to be wasteful in evey aspect of my life and one of them being a consumer. I feel we just buy buy buy. You can see my problem....I sell stamps! Sell, sell, sell. I do take comfort in that I'm selling a product that envokes creativity. Creating handmade cards that will brighten up someone's day. That's an awesome thing. But I do want to say use my stamps. I mean really use them, stretch your stamp sets, think outside the box, mix and match your sets and only buy the ones you REALLY love. 
 For the stamps you no longer use you can recycle them by re-selling them, give them away, donate them, just don't let them be sitting there collecting dust or worse throw them away.

It's Earth Day everyday.

naturisimo happy mail

Naturisimo is one of my favourite on line shops for natural beauty. The customer service is great and quick delivery (they are based in the UK). They deliver worldwide. 
Besides carrying so many gorgeous products their packaging is beautiful and eco friendly.

Before I talk about the yummy lipstick I ordered I want to share the samples I got. I bought Schmidt's Tea Tree deodorant (a mini) for my son and husband to try out (they really like it so far) and I got a mini in Rose Vanilla (my daughter and I love this one).
I've always been curious about these two REN products and I got a little sampe of Vapour's concealer.

So the main reason for this little order of mine is this GORGEOUS lipstick! I've been eyeing Axiology lipsticks for a while now and decided to treat myself with Devotion which is described as 'a copper burnt-sugar base and an echo of rose quartz, Devotion is the girl-crush of natural-look lovers. Its buttery luster keeps lips flawlessly moisturized and supple.'

This is not a colour I usually tend to wear but I wanted a little something different.

The packaging is gorgeous. 

The colour is beautiful and it wears amazingly. I'm surprised how long it lasts on my lips for such a moisturizing lipstick. I LOVE it and you know what this means now.......I need more!! Well I don't need more...I WANT more! Axiology has recently come out with Lip Crayons!! I LOVE me a crayon!
