This Month's Empties (October)

Hello beauties!
This month as well, I have 5 products that I've used up, to share with you.
To me personally, "empties" are always interesting, as I can get some good recommendations or find out which products are not that worth of hype!
So let's see together, my empties for this month.
  • Garnier Dry Body Oil (Olive Extract)
  • Dove Bath Foam
  • Batist Dry Shampoo
  • Nivea Q 10 Serum Pearls
  • Garnier Cocoa and Coconut Oil Hair Conditioner

There's a couple hair products that I'd like to talk to you about.
Garnier Hair Conditioner with Cocoa and Coconut Oil Extract. This product is very affordable price wise and it's overall a good conditioner: It has got a pleasant scent and it's quite creamy and moisturizing. It leaves your hair straight and soft and I love the scent!
If you don't want to splurge on expensive high end hair care products, this one is a good drugstore buy!
For ages I was convinced that the Batist Dry Shampoo was the popular "Batiste" Dry Shampoo, only an Italian version of it. But then I realized this was made in Italy and other than a very similar name, it doesn't have much to do with the famous "Batiste" dry shampoo. This one will do the job, but it's more of an "old school" dry shampoo. It comes only in this version, whereas the "Batiste" one comes in many different varieties and let's face it, it's way more fun to use!
Unfortunately, in Italy (at least in my area) we don't have the "Batiste" one (I buy it when I'm in Croatia), so "Batist" it was this time! I wasn't too impressed and if I can avoid buying it again, I will.
I'll much rather opt for the awesome Klorane Dry Shampoo then, which is available at our local pharmacies.
"Batist"  I have to say was kind of a "no-no" for me.

Next I have two body care products.
Dove Bath Foam was very creamy and nourishing, nicely scented and was leaving my skin soft and moisturized. It's a drugstore product, so very affordable. I would buy it again, maybe trying out other scents, as it comes in a variety of different options.
Garnier Dry Body Oil was a true discovery for me right after I gave birth. I was very busy with my newborn son and also quite weak in the postpartum period, so I didn't have much time, or strength to do my usual everyday beauty routine. However I didn't want to neglect myself, so after taking a shower, this oil was the best for a quick nourishment! I loved everything about it: how easy it was to apply, quick to absorb and it's beautifully scented. I most certainly will buy it again. It's also great if you don't have much time to dedicate to your beauty routine after showering!

Last is one face care product: Nivea Q 10 Serum Pearls. I bought this at my local drugstore even before I got pregnant. I started using it, but then I had to stop for a while, as during my pregnancy (especially in the first trimester) the scent of this product was making me sick!
I started using it again not that long ago and I just recently used it up. I was using this as a serum, before my daily moisturizer. The yellow pearls turn into a creamy consistency as soon as you press the pump and it's non greasy and easy to absorb. I don't mind the scent anymore but I do wish it was less scented. This way it looks too artificial, so I doubt I'll be buying it again.

My favourite product from these empties is definitely Garnier Dry Body Oil! I absolutely love & recommend it!
If you get a chance to try it out, please let me know your opinions!

Things that I want from Zaful, right now!

Hi guys!

As the days are getting colder, I'm thinking about warming up and I'm preparing my wardrobe for the colder weather. This means that I'm on a lookout for warm wool sweaters and winter jackets and coats.

One thing I need to mention is that, since I became a Mum, I'm more oriented on on-line shopping. I don't have much time to visit regular stores, plus I don't like bringing my little child to the shopping malls (it's not the healthiest environment for babies!).

One of those popular on-line fashion stores I always come back to is definitely Zaful
I like it because it offers so many things at one place, it is constantly updated with popular new arrivals and it follows the latest trends...everything at very affordable prices :-)

Let's see how we can update our wardrobe with  under $50 budget!

This pale pink sweater is certainly one of the items on my must- have list! I just love everything about it! It looks very soft and cozy, plus, I love this color! It's one of my fave color, to brighten up those gloomy fall & winter days :-)
At only $ 22.29, this item will immediately end up in my shopping cart ;-)

I chose a pair of these tassle earrings to accessorize the sweater! These are very popular, and I grabbed them for only $ 4.72, that's such a good price :-)

I added to my order this white sweatshirt! Ribbed and lace up details make it a very popular item of the season. I love to wear white all year round, so I opted for this color, but it also comes in other color options. At only $ 9.99 I didn't think twice about this item!

I'm very happy with my picks and can't wait to add these items to my fall & winter wardrobe!

What did you guys spotted at Zaful that you liked a lot?

As a little surprise, I have a discount code for you!!! If you fancy ordering anything from Zaful, just enter ZFEN at checkout &...happy shopping! ;-)

Hi guys! It's time for another fashion post! I realized I have some more outfit posts from my past month's trip to the island of Rab, that I still haven't published.
I spent most of October in Croatia, and I had some sort of "internet detox", but I'm back now and full of new projects & ideas! Depending on how much time my little son allows me to dedicate to my blog, I'll keep bringing you more fashion, beauty & mum related topics in the upcoming weeks!

I wore this outfit during our trip to the island of Rab. We stopped half way to take photos, as the scenery was simply breathtaking!

I hope you enjoy these photos :-)

Sve ovisi o mom sincicu i koliko mi vremena "odobri" za moje bloganje, haha!

OMG! Garlic Shampoo Against Hair Loss!?

Hi guys!
Do you remember my post about snail gel cream that acts as the best anti-aging for your skin?
Well, I decided to start a whole new series, where I'll be finding the weirdest beauty products ever, that actually work!
In this post I'm going to present you a garlic shampoo that works against hair loss. This is great if you're experiencing hair loss with the change of seasons, hair thinning, or post pregnancy hair loss.
Slovenian brand Afrodita, placed on the market this super cool hair shampoo that actually works!
I didn't even know that garlic is used in anti hair loss therapy, obviously, my fist thought was the awful smell that garlic leaves for days!
Nobody finds that appealing, right?
But fear not, this hair shampoo doesn't smell anything like garlic! On the container it says: "With fresh spring scent"
So the scent is actually very pleasant, yes, very fresh indeed and definitely not too overpowering!

I bought this hair shampoo a while ago, as I love Afrodita beauty products and at the time, this was their new release. To be honest with you, I only started using it a few weeks ago!
I think I've been experiencing some post-pregnancy hair loss and I really wanted to reach for a natural remedy, so I instantly thought of trying this shampoo that was sitting in my bathroom cabinet, unopened.
It's supposed to be a 100% natural cure for hair loss and this shampoo is paraben, paraffin and silicone free.

How does it work?
Garlic stimulates microcirculation in the scalp, strengthening your hair from roots to ends!
It's important to rub the shampoo into your scalp during a second shampooing, with a 1-3 minute massage, for optimum anti hair loss results.

Does it actually work?
I believe that it does. I've been using it for a good couple of weeks now and recently, when combing my hair, I noticed a bunch of new, baby hair poking out from my scalp.
Other than that, I love the texture of this shampoo , it leaves me with a fresh and clean, nicely moisturised hair.
It's good to mention that it comes in absolutely massive container (1000 ml) and that the price is actually very good! (around 5 € for this entire thing!)
Not the most practical for travelling, but you can easily pour the needed amount in another, travel friendly container (a lot of drugstores sell travel size, empty containers, so there you go!)

If you come across this shampoo, do try it out! Even if you aren't fighting hair loss, but only wish for thicker, stronger, luscious locks!
Do you have any specific anti hair loss tips that you'd like to share?

xo from Italy,

OOTD: Ripped girlfriend jeans & floral blouse / Mommy Style / Casual everyday outfit idea

Hi guys!

I have a new outfit post for you :-) This one was taken when I was at the island of Rab in Croatia, on a mini family vacation. I wore mostly casual and comfy outfits, such as this one, including ripped and oversized jeans (this particular model is called "girlfriend" style), and sneakers...all paired with a cute top and a backpack (to keep things practical, now that I'm a Mum).

Bok ljudi!

Danas imam vremena za brzinski outfit post :-) Ove fotke nastale su na otoku Rabu, kada smo tamo bili pocetkom mjeseca rujna, na kratkom obiteljskom odmoru.
Tada sam nosila pretezno vrlo lezerne, udobne, sportske outfite. Najvise sam posezala za potrganim, "oversized" trapericama (ove su "girlfriend" model), udobnim tenisicama...sve sam iskombinirala sa sarenim, slatkim topicima i naravno, ruksacima (jer, uz to sto su ovih zadnjih par sezona izuzetno popularni, jako su "Mom friendly"!)

Floral blouse: Zara
Girlfriend fit jeans: H&M
Sunglasses: Mango
Wooden watch: Jord, mod. "Sully" in Natural Green
Sneakers: Superga
Backpack: Promod
Bracelets: Bijou Brigitte, Swarovski
