L’Occitane perfume summer 2013

Occitane_Collection_Grasse_Parfums

L'occitane is now promoting their new scents and I saw them in the window display in Valencia but didn't feel like going back in the store since I had already spent an embarrassing amount of time in there, so I'm thinking Next stop Romethat's when I'll try them and see which one I prefer. Any reason to visit their shops, just love them. 

"Introducing La Collection de Grasse, the exclusive fragrance collection that unites the most precious and sometimes unexpected ingredients from lands near and far.  Developed by L’OCCITANE’s private perfumer, Karine Dubreil"

More pics inside! ;)

The city treated us well, it was a great weekend break (in the middle of the week though hehe) and we found a romantic place to celebrate our 5 years together. We did what we always do on trips abroad; eat amazing food, drink lots of wine and walk around til our feet are hurting :) and yeah some shopping too. Valencia is such a charming city, you can't not like it.

Anyway, as great as it was to be away, coming home is also nice, especially when you have a little boo called Aiden waiting for you like we had been away for a year.

Unfortunately he had managed to get himself into trouble at school and we had to have a long talk before going to sleep. It's hard to teach kids about life when no one can claim to be an expert themselves, but as long as we communicate and try to set a good example I'm sure all kids go through problems, fights ets at some point, but come out of things fine. I wasn't really angry about the actual trouble he had caused, that was a typical thing to do for an 8-9 year old boy, but he kept denying it for a while and that's what I don't like. So the talk was 99% about telling the truth and taking responsibility for what you do!

Enough about that, hope you all have a happy weekend, we'll continue with more nice food and some wine BUT lots of gym and walks in the sun too. Balance is key ;) xxxxx

John Masters Organics Travel Kit

BHpLNzyCcAEx8Ii

I finally got my little travel kit, just in time for next weeks trip to Valencia, Spain.

It contains:

Citrus & Neroli Conditioner 30 ml

Lavender Rosemary Shampoo for normal hair 30 ml

Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Lotion 30 ml

Blood Orange & Vanilla Shower Gel 30 ml

It's almost a must to use these kind of sets when you go for 2-3 days and travel with little luggage and need space for shopping.. ;)

I got this set from Feelunique.com

Post-travel review: The products are fine, not great, but just what you need when you travel and they all smell nice, however the bottles are too hard which made them inconvenient to use. I'd give it 3/5.

Valencia here I come again

room_at_the_vincci_palace_hotel

I was meant to go with J to Stockholm for a few days this month, they're still working on those commercials but thank God he doesn't have to go for the last meeting, so instead he'll stay home, and to compensate for us missing a weekend alone abroad we booked 3 days in Valencia mid April :) So happy!! Then we have Rome booked in May but Aiden is coming with us so it's not really the same. Fun, but not the same, you know ;)

It's been 5 years since last time I visited Valencia and I definitely have nothing but fun memories haha, but that was also different coz it was a girls trip.Anyway, it's a beautiful city, can't wait to see it again.
