driving test

Also, just 4 days before travelling to Marbella I passed my driving test! It was such a nervous moment and I was overjoyed and super relieved afterwards. I’m very proud of myself for passing both theory and practical test on the first try. No more cruising around in someone else’s car 😉

 

Marbella

We had a great time in Spain, Marbella is gorgeous and can’t wait til we go back :)

What impressed me most was the nature and the beautiful mountains. The sea is something I cannot live without, but since we live next to it here in Malta, I paid more attention to other surroundings. Hearing Spanish all the time didn’t exactly hurt either 😉

elizabeth arden flawless future night cream

With the addition of the night cream, Flawless future is now a complete range and you’ll find serum, day cream with/without spf30, eye gel and night cream.

I’ve tried the serum which unfortunately does not help my skin much, I feel like I need a whole bottle of those gorgeous caplets, but I’ve used the day cream spf 30 and it is amazing, so I decided to try the night cream since my other cream just finished.

The ‘almondy’ scent takes a bit of getting used to, especially since it differs a lot from the beautiful scent of the day cream, but other than that I’m liking it already. It absorbs quickly and my face feels like soft baby skin in the morning. It needs a couple of weeks to prove itself but so far so good!

 

 

Next stop Marbella

This time next week, we’ll be on our way to Marbella Spain! I’m very excited because I’ve never been there and we are staying for 5 days so that should leave us some time to get to know the city a bit. Aiden is set on spending most of the time car-spotting but I think I’m leaning more towards enjoying the Spanish nature and maybe do a bit of shopping. This trip is part work part holiday so we’ll mix it up as much as we can 😉

Check back to see our thoughts of the place!

 

 

splurge vs save on spring perfume

Spring is here and you are probably (like myself) bored of your winter scents, so I’d like to give you a quick tip if you’re sniffing through the shelves at the department stores without success :)

Splurge 

Latest beauty from Elie SaabRose Couture Edt. I’m not a fan of Saab perfumes in general as I find them quite strong, so this came as a very nice surprise. It has a lot of character yet settles beautifully and lasts for a long time, leaving a happy, fresh note of rose and spring behind. Don’t think of the rose as overpowering though, it’s there, but not in the usual way, it’s more subtle and gives plenty of room for the other notes too. 30ml €45

Save

My favourite right now is, believe it or not, from Zara. It smells 100% of spring and makes me think of city breaks, shopping, outdoor coffee shops and it’s generally sweet but fresh, and works well both day and night. Also….it’s €13 for 100ml Aaaahhh;)

 

 

Happy Tuesday

Some mornings are seriously making it harder than others for me to get out of bed. Today is one of those. I really need one of those ‘I don’t do mornings’-tees, just to make it clear! I’m in so much pain after yesterday’s 3-hour workout, it’s a nice kind of pain but you know what I mean. So anyway, just had to share some morning thoughts :) before my one-a-day coffee (boring but good) and work.

Maison Scotch

Maison Scotch and Scotch & Soda just got some really cool items in for spring-16 and I had to go and take a look. I also grabbed a cute top from the sales 😉 I love their style, there’s a streety and funky yet proper and stylish tone to all their clothes. I really like that combo. The only annoying thing is that J tends to get stuck, always finding something new, so I’m sitting there like a boyfriend waiting for his girlfriend at Sephora 😉 x
