HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COCO

It's Coco Chanel's birthday today and I want to dedicate today's post to this inspirational person.

As soon as I got interested in fashion, she's been an inspiration. The woman I've been admiring my whole life. Everybody knows how amazing she was and how she changed fashion. 
Besides that, she was incredibly strong and powerful woman, her sayings are one of the best guides to live a beautiful life.
On the occasion of icon's 133rd birthday, I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes.

“The best things in life are free. The second-best are very expensive.”

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little—if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

“My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.”

“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.”

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

“Dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy today.”

COLD DRINKS





I've been searching for lots of interesting drinks that would be perfect for summer. Even though, summer is not the warmest this year I still enjoy cold drinks and wanted to share some favorites here! 






ICED CARAMEL MACCHIATO

I love everything that has caramel in it, I was so excited to try this and when I did, oh my, it was SO good. It actually tastes like copycat of Starbucks. And the best thing, I can add as much caramel as I want!

Recipe
In a serving cup I put 1tbsp caramel sauce, 1 cup of ice cubes, 1 cup cold milk and 1 shot (or two) espresso. Blend until smooth. Then drizzle caramel sauce on top. 





OREO MILKSHAKE

Oreo milkshake is one of the best I've tasted. When I found this super easy recipe it became our obsession this summer. 

Recipe
Mix 7-10 oreo cookies, 0.5 l vanilla ice cream and 1 cup of milk together until even and smooth. Decorate with whatever you like - donuts, cookies, chocolate sauce or whipped cream.





SALTED CARAMEL MILKSHAKE

This milkshake is a good choice if you want to make something easy yet very tasty and fascinating.

Recipe
Mix 0,5 l vanilla ice cream with 1/2 cup of milk together. Add 1/2 can of dulce de leche (or more if you want it really sweet) and 2-3 tsp of salt while tasting it. Be very careful with adding salt, start with small amounts. Mix everything, decorate with whipped cream and enjoy it!





NUTELLA MILKSHAKE

Last but not least! I think this Nutella/chocolate milkshake is perfect for every taste because it's not as sweet as previous ones.

Recipe
Mix 4 tbsp Nutella, 2 cups of milk and 2 scoops (vanilla or chocolate) ice cream together and decorate with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles or other sweets.

















I hope you liked these recipes and if you are interested to make one by yourself, let me know which one you would love to try!

SKINCARE FAVORITES

Recently I've been discovering more skincare brands and products and after a short period of time I fell in love with some especially. I love this brand because The Ordinary has clinically proven ingredients and offers good skincare quality for affordable prices. The brand also does NOT test on animals and is free of mineral oils, parabens and sulphates. This is honest skincare at its best and I really can't wait to test more products.
THE BODY SHOP Oils of Life INTENSELY REVITALISING CREAM & OIL - both products have 3 precious seed oils therefore these intensely repair skin and make it smooth and alive. Texture of these products is lightweight with non-sticky finish.
These GARNIER masks are perfect for a quick hydration. Green one has extract of green tea + HA and the blue one has pomegranate extract + HA. For the first time I tried hydrating mist and it's perfect for summer - SPF 30, protects skin and you can even use it even over makeup. Perfect!
It feels like forever since I've tried and used different skincare products from Garnier. But Micellar Cleansing line is my favorite. I love to clean my face with water and some product so when I saw this new Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash I was very excited to try this and I enjoy it.

CONTRAST




Contrasts of colors. I love to combine bright yet very different colors together. I found really old eye pencil that had two sides - one in pink color and other in green, that's how I thought of idea to mix these two colors. To add something even cooler, I put pink in waterline. I was so happy with the look, it actually gives me 80's makeup feels. When playing with makeup, my favorite thing to do - create colorful looks; and as I am writing this I want to create something colorful so badly!
