Feelunique: Beauty Without Boundaries

I have recently discovered a fantastic website for beauty products and I would definitely recommend it. I usually purchase everything I need from Harrods but I always like to have a look around and discover what is new and more importantly convenient for me.

Feelunique is my guilty pleasure. Online shopping can be fun sometimes. Especially when free standard delivery is offered for all orders over £15. Their delivery is fast and at the moment they have this huge sale where you can get great savings while ordering your favorite products. Last time I ordered my Emma Hardie cleansing balm and it came with a 50ml pot as a gift. This morning I purchased a few sale goodies and I cannot wait to receive them.

Check their website and Happy Shopping!

Tees by Shop Sincerely Jules

Good morning all!! 

August is here and so far it is definitely on a sunnier side than the previous months. My days in the park and all the walking around the city have paid off and I can proudly say that I can see a bit of tan on my body. Nothing scares me more than white, pale human skin :-) Nothing wrong with that, but you can say that I am too Mediterranean :)

In the summer (and all year round really) I love wearing comfortable clothes. One of my favorite pieces is a lightweight cotton t-shirt. When it comes to colors, I would say I am classic (or borning!), as I usually stick to the following: Black, white and grey. I love the tees by Shop Sincerely Jules with their cute little messages. 

My latest delivery from Cali arrived a few days ago and I purchased the Black Thinking Of You tee and the White Somewhere tee. I have four so far and honestly it is the first thing I want to wear on a day off. Every time I order something, it arrives in good time and their customer service team is always on hand if you have any inquiries. 

The brand was founded in 2012 by the lovely Julie Sarinana, from  Sincerely Jules, as a way to bring her signature style to her followers and friends. If you are not familiar with the brand, check it out. In regards to sizing I always go for XS as their sizes tend to be quite generous, 

Fav things: Tess, Coffee, Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm and Kiko Lip Balm
Have a cup of coffee, wear a nice outfit for work today, smile and Dream Big!

Menorcan Sandals by MIBO

On a day like today (it's raining in London folks) I am reminiscing about my holiday in Menorca, where the sun was hitting my face and was making me glow. Where my clothes were as light as possible and I was wearing sandals. And talking about sandals, I wanted to write this post ages ago. While in this beautiful island, I discovered the super cute and comfortable Menorcan sandals. I know when I like something a lot,  as I tend to have a "love at first sight" kinda feeling when I lay eyes on it. This is what happened when I first saw these sandals. My eyes popped, I was feeling little colourful butterflies in my stomach and my dilemma was: "How can I pick just one pair?". The thought that I was travelling with just a hand luggage was tantalizing me but I had to do what I had to do (this means that I got two pairs and prayed that they would fit!!!). 

There were so many brands to choose from and my choice was Mibo. These sandals are the traditional sandals of Menorca. They used to be worn by the rural population of the island, as they were strong and adaptable to the Menorcan countryside. They come in a variety of colours, fabrics and designs. 

Cooling off with a glass of beer after my purchase

These sandals match my ring!
If you happen to visit the island, go and try some sandals and I am sure you will fall in love with them. A few weeks ago I spotted some Solillas (another brand) in a little shop in Primrose Hill. They were ridiculously expensive!! A smile painted my face when I thought of the ones that I had bought (for just 25 Euros a pair) and all the beautiful memories from my holiday. 

Have a nice evening and don't forget to fall in love with the smallest things in life!
