Hello September

It's a beginning of a new month and the best time to start over. It's a time of renewal.
I love summer and I'm gonna miss long, hot days full of sunshine, wearing light clothes (especially dresses and skirts). 
We spent this summer outside, going for a long walks, having summer picnics in the park or sitting on our terrace sipping delicious homemade cocktails. What better way to enjoy summer than on a terrace to be surrounded with your family and friends.
August symbolized summer, fun, picnics, sea, relax, short nights, holidays.

But September it's just as amazing and unique.
The falling leaves, golden mornings, smell of pumpkin spice latte (already avaliable in Starbucks), walk in the woods wrapped up in your cardigan and oversized scarf. Autumn clothes are full of earthy colors and I love it.
To me there is something magical about this month. Everything starts to slow down.
It's also perfect time to decorate your home for fall. From adding lots of candles with inviting scents to switching your pillows in the living room.
Enjoy your September everyone!

Happiness Boutique Statement Necklace

Happy Spring everyone, 
This post is from my other blog The Wonderful Life as a Mum :-)

... ...
 
Finally it's getting warmer outside. I'm really excited to spend more days on the sun.  
The warmer weather and longer days are my favorite parts of the Spring.

Today I would like to show you a beautiful statement necklace from Happiness Boutique. They contacted me to try their jewelry and share my opinion. Well, nothing like a nice piece of statement jewelry to make you feel confident, am I right?  
Happiness Boutique has a lot of lovely necklaces, earrings, bracelets and we all know that a little sparkle bring life to any outfit. 
I'm a jewelry girl. I love wearing them, because the right accessories can be a reflection of your style spirit.




What I like about Happiness Boutique ?

1. Their style is timeless classic with a charming vintage touch. 
2. Their products are made of high quality material. 
3. They have a cute packaging, my necklace came in a lovely white box with the brand logo.
4. They offer worldwide free shipping without a minimum purchase. 
5. They have an awesome reward program and hosting many giveaways. 



Mummy tips:

- Rather than choosing the most popular fashion jewelry, choose necklaces (bracelets, etc) with unique and interesting details. Something that represents you, that carries meaning.

- As it goes by saying, sometimes less is more.

- Did you know? Plastic drinking straws are perfect to help you pack your necklaces. By inserting half of the necklace into the straw, you avoid them from getting tangled. :-)

Close to my Due Date

Wow, the time passes so quickly. 
My due date is coming up faster than I thought.

I love being pregnant and I'm gonna miss kicks in my belly, I love the feeling so much :-)
I'm starting to be excited and a bit scared at the same time.
I know it is normal for a first time mum, I'm trying to be confident, positive, but still there are moments I get nervous. 
It's part anticipation and fear of the unknown. Sometimes it feels as if the world is spinning around.
My head is full with all kind of thoughts ... is everything ready, did I forget anything, etc.
But, I'm happy, I'm finally going to meet my little baby. I'm trying to embrace the whole process, at the end this is how we all got here.

''Love''

Firmoo Sunglasses Review

Sunglasses are a must have summer accessory. 
Not only do sunglasses serve a very practical purpose, but they can really pull together your summer style. Plus, we all know that too much sun can increase the number of wrinkles under your eyes. It is a known fact that sunlight is a cause of premature aging.
Having a signature pair of shades can easily pull together even the simplest outfit.  
You don't have to go for expensive, but it's important to look for the UV protection.

A few weeks ago I received another beautiful sunglasses from Firmoo.com and once again I'm very pleased with the quality. I already mentioned in my previous post Firmoo.com is the world most popular online store for eyewear. They cater for those who needs prescription lenses and those who dont. Firmoo has such a wide variety of stylish glasses for an affordable price and hundreds of classic or fashion style frames. On the Daily New page, you can find the newest frames which are updated every day. You can search by frame shape, upload your photo and do a virtual try on.

That's why I was very happy to collaborate with them on my blog again and write my review.
The glasses I've choosen are in a great condition, very comfortable and great quality.
I also love the complimentary case.
Prescription glasses and sunglasses from Firmoo are very affordable and there are a lot of styles to choose from. 
I highly recommend Firmoo, they are doing a wonderful job of providing oustanding customer service.

Get the latest fashion trends and must have glasses.
Because summer and sunglasses just go together :-)

Putting on a new pair of glasses or sunglasses is a simple way to completely transform your look - just like a new hairstyle.

Pregnancy is an amazing journey




Pregnancy is an amazing journey, the most magical adventure you can experience. Every day brings something new, new feelings, excitement, love you never knew you had inside you.
I love every moment of being pregnant and experiencing everything that comes with it. 
To me, the feeling of carrying a little soul inside me is simply magnificent.

Have a lovely week everyone!

Maternity Maxi Skirt from Seraphine

Hello everyone :-)
I can't believe we are already in July. It feels like last week I was in Etretat and it was actually more than a month ago.
Situated on the Normandy coast, Etretat is famous for it's scenery around the town, in particular its white cliffs. 
It's a magical place.
It was a great weekend, just a bit windy, but sunny and pleasant. 
I was happy wearing my lovely light blue maternity maxi skirt from Seraphine. I have to admit I'm loving maternity clothes. 
My favorite are dresses and skirts. 
I like feeling trendy and don't see why being pregnant should stop that. Seraphine offers comfortable and chic options for pregnancy.
Everything I picked out fits just right, plus their clothes really are so comfortable and soft.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Benefits of Delicious Cherries

I love to eat fruits and vegetables. For me it's important to feel great and have more energy.
Eating right can help you maintain a healthy weight and improve your mood.  
It's all about feeling good :-)

Thankfully my pregnancy cravings are fruits and vegetables. 
Lately I've been craving cherries. I just can't stop eating them, they are so nice, juicy and wonderfully delicious. 
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
Here's a little reminder what are they good for. 

''Love''
Dusana 


Health benefits of cherries:

1.) Rich in antioxidants.
2.) Anti-aging and anti-inflamatory.
3.) Skin lightening and clearing dark spots.
4.) Rich in beta carotene, magnesium, iron, potassium, vitamin A, C, E, K.
5.) Because they are rich in iron, they can help with anemia.
6.) They are great for digestion, weight loss.
7.) Cancer protection.
8.) They help you sleep because they are rich in stable antioxidant melatonin, which helps maintain a healthy sleeping pattern. 


Extra tip:

Cut the cherries in half, apply it onto your face (neck) and leave it for about 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. Cherry mask help in removing dead skin cells, cleans and opens the pores.
Your skin will become shiny and glowing.
