New dining lamp

Hello there!

How good is this lamp from IKEA which makes it possible to have a lamp over the couch / dining table without attaching it to the ceiling. It gives the most cosy feeling ever and the lamp shade we chose to it goes so well with the rest of the dining table and chairs. In love!

Bunnings on a rainy Monday

Hello friends!

It’s been raining for the last couple of days, and it’s been itching in my fingers to do a complete home make-over. Yesterday we went window shopping, originally looking for a new bed frame. Instead, we found the couch of our dreams. It’s not our style at all as it’s quite coastal, but it’s really deep and it’s the comfiest couch I’ve ever sat in. So, we’re just waiting if it’s gonna come up any EOFY sale and order it. So no bed frame it is for a while…

As always I’m off on Mondays, and I made a trip to Bunnings. Was supposed to just buy a paint roller, but as I wasn’t in a rush I just walked around the store and found some bits and pieces. I have wanted a tray for the dining table for a long, but haven’t felt like paying 50$ for one, and while walking along with the terracotta pots, I found a perfect coaster, for only 7.95$. Stick some furniture pads underneath. I might spray paint it matte black, but for now, I will stick with this.

I also made a little garden for the cats to nibble on when they’re out on the balcony. They have a tendency to eat our indoor plants so I hope that they will understand that this is the only one that they’re allowed to snack on?!

Tonight I’m going on a pottery class with a friend, slightly nervous and excited. Let’s see how hard it is 😀

This and that

What would love do? Perfume from Lush. Smells amazing. Like a mix of Christmas morning, vanilla, earth and carrot cake. My husband always tells me how nice I smell when I wear it.

Black simple bikini top from H&M.

Tiny bowls from David Jones. Always good to have I guess? Perfect to have soy sauce in for dumplings or the pitts from olives…

Everyday bras from bras and things.

New in skincare

Added a few other little gems into my routine. You can never have enough right?… My skin has been a bit of a wreck lately, bad diet with way too much sugar and unhealthy fats has really showed its effect. I’m really excited about the clairty peptides and blemish control pads, please fix my skin!

I also stepped up from crystal retinal 3 to 6. Will slowly incorporate it in the next month to not overwhelm my skin before I start to use it daily 🙂

Newbies

Keraste resistans shampoo & conditioner– My hairdresser gave me a few samples to test out and try to save my dyied, dying hair.. And it’s amazing. I have hope again.

Blinc mascara amplified – This is a re-order for me. It’s the best mascara I’ve ever used and I will use it forever. Doesnt smudge, no panda eyes, buildable and you just need warm water to take it off.

Innisfree jeju volcanic clay mask – I’ve never used anything from innisfree before, and I’m not superparticular with brands when I’m purchasing face masks. But needed a new claymask and liked the sound of this – not expecting miracles, but it has a beautiful green color and is very wallet-friendly 🙂

Dreaming of…

My balcony is the like the lost soul of the apartment.. It looks a bit abandoned, like someone tried but gave up.. It is a good balcony, great size, nice view, but somehow it just doesn’t work. It definitely needs a good clean after we sandpapered down our dining table out there, and then i’m dreaming of some new interior… And lots o new (not dying) plants and herbs…

Thrift shopping

Today I started with scrubbing my kitchen tiles with bakingsoda, vinegar and a toothbrush… At 7am. Halfway through both me and the toothbrush decided to give up. Halft of the floor looks amazing though.

Later in the day I decided to go to the salvation army. Spent more time among the bookshelves than the clothing racks. I did find a little black dress that might be too “extra” for me, but who knows, one day I might be brave enough. And the shoes! Look at them, my soul feels happy just looking at them. And then the 70’s Italian serving bowl to have sallad or popcorn in, just amazing. Everything for 52$.
