Tell me a Story



Siena







Monteriggioni






Colle di Val D'elsa


Castiglione della Pescaia












Pienza 







Florence















Venice 


Some can paint a picture with words, I, on the other hand, like to tell a story in pictures. 
If a picture is worth thousand words, then with these 40 pics I've written an entire novel. 
No more words needed here, just take a look.

All good things in life take work

Let's be honest, this blog is space for sharing superficial things that, let's face it, make us all a bit happier. That's why we are talking skin today, and mine has been feeling miserable. However, I managed to find a perfect solution and I thought I should share. Here's a review of some great and other not so great moisturises I tried. 

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream - I wrote recently about how much I loved this cream. It smells great, it feels great, keeps oily skin matte and balanced, it's great for sensitive skin, but I mentioned also that I run through this jar in matter of minutes, well not literally, but pretty fast. Quite honestly I can't be bothered to go and by a cream every 2 weeks. Therefore, I went on to hunt for some other option. 

Hajde da budemo iskreni, ovaj blog je prostor na kom se dele pomalo površne stvari, ali da se ne lažemo te iste stvari nas sve cine malo srecnijim. S toga, danas se bavimo temom nege kože pošto je moja koža bila u dosta lošem stanju. Uspela sam da pronađem savršeno rešenje za svoj problem pa sam mislila da podelim. Evo recenzije nekih odličnih i nekih ne baš tako odličnih proizvoda. 

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream - Pisala sam nedavno o tome kako mi se dopada ova krema. Miriše odlično, osećaj je isto dobar kad se nanese na kožu i matira je. Takođe je idealna je za osetljivu kožu, ali, kako sa već pomenula, ja ovu teglicu potrošim veoma brzo. Iskreno mene malo smara da kupujem ovu kremu svake 2 nedelje, s toga, počela sam da tražim drugu opciju.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel - This is one of those products everyone raves about. It's part of Clinique's 3 step program. Personally, I find the soap and the toner in the 3 step program to be too aggressive for my skin. The gel moisturizing formula is aimed at oily skin type. There's also a lotion in the range for drier skin. I enjoyed the tube packaging. I think it's great because you don't actually get your germs in the product. It's fragrance free, but it still has chemically smell. It does keep oily skin matt, however it dried out my skin to the point that my forehead and nose have begun to flake. So this product gets a big NO in my book. I assume that it can be good for very oily skin, but if your skin is combination to oily, like mine, stay away from this.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel - Ovo je jedan od onih proizvoda koje svi hvale i koji je deo Clinique 3 step programa. Lično, meni se sapun i toner koji su deo ovog programa ne dopadaju jer su previše agresivini. Gel formula ovog proizvoda je namenjena masnoj koži. Takođe postoji i losion koje je namenjen suvoj koži. Dopada mi se to što je proizvod u tubi te se prozivod ne zaprlja prstima. Gel nema miris, ali ipak miriše malo na hemikalije. Kožu čini matiranom, ali je veoma isušuje, toliko da su moje čelo i nos počeli da se ljušte. S toga ovaj proizvod od mene dobija jedno veliko NE. Prepostavaljam da bi bio prokladan za veoma masnu kožu, ali za mešovitu kožu - nikako! 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar H - This honest saved my life! La Roche-Posay products are normally targeted at a particular skin problem. Effeclar H is aimed for skin that has been dried out and damaged after skin treatment, which was my case after the Clinique gel. Once again, thumbs up for the tube, however, towards the end, as the tube is of quite hard plastic, it was impossible to squeeze the rest of the product out. It has very light, pleasant fragrance. It helped my flaky skin on the forehead recover, but soon it made me a bit more oily than I like and the fragrance irritated my skin in certain places. So, it's ideal as a rescue treatment after you dried your skin out. If your skin tends to get oily this will eventually just make the things worse. So the hunt had to be continued.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar H - Ovo mi je iskreno spaslo život. La Roche-Posay proizvodi su obično namenjeni specifičnim problemima sa kožom. Effeclar H je namenjen koži koja je isušena i oštećena zbog tretmana, kao što je u mom slučaju to bilo sa Clinique gelom. Veliki like za tubu, jedino što je plastika veoma tvrda te nije bilo moguće iscediti ostatak kreme. Ima lagan lep miris i pomogla je mojom koži na čelu da se oporavi, ali je ubrzo počela da masti moju kožu a miris je počeo da iritira određene delove mog lica. Ovo je idealn tretman za oštećenu kožu, ali ako je vaša koža masnija ovo će samo pogoršati stvari.
 Vichy Aqualia Thermal - This product is part of Vichy's day spa range. The idea being that you massage this moisturising gel into your skin and have a spa moment at home. Now, this was particularly fun for me as I became obsessed with Lisa Eldrige's facial massage so I though it's great. It smells lovely. I like the glass jar, but not the biggest fun of poking my fingers in the product. However, this product does nothing for the skin. Eventually, the fragrance irritated my skin and caused redness. It also dried my skin out. I think any cream from the drugstore does probably better job at keeping skin hydrated. This was a pass for me. 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal - Ovaj proizvod je deo Vichy day spa linije. Glavna ideja je da masirate kožu ovim hidratantnim gelom i da imate spa trenutak kod kuće. Meni se ovo jako dopalo jer sam veliki fan masaže lica Lise Eldrige. Miriše odlično. Dopada mi se stakleno pakovanje, ali ne i tegla jer se proizod tako zaprlja, ali što se tiče nege, ovaj proizvod ne radi ništa. Miris mi je iziritirao kožu i izazao crvenilo. Takođe mi je i isušio kožu. Mislim da bilo koja krema iz parfimerije bi uradila bolji posao u hidriranju kože. Što se mene tiče - ne!
Alverde Wildrose Facial Oil - when you have oily skin you'd probably think it's completely mad to put more oil on it. Interestingly enough, putting oil on your skin helps balance it out and your skin actually gets less oily as the result. Love the glass bottle with a pipette, it makes this product fun. The fragrance is rosy which is bit old-fashioned, but nevertheless nice. This is my fave night treatment. However, I find it not so practical for day care and under makeup as it's oil and you're bound to be a bit more shiny, but as a rich night treatment to hydrate the skin I think it's wonderful. 


Alverde Wildrose Facial Oil - kada imate masnu kožu verovatno mislite da ja van pameti staviti ulje na nju, ali naprotiv, ulje pomaže da se koža izbalansira i za rezultat koža će vam biti manje masna. Jako mi se dopada stakleno pakovanje sa pipetom, veoma zabavno. Ulje miriše na ružu pa je malo staromodno, ali ipak lepo. Ovo je moj omiljeni noćni tretman. Ipak smatram da nije adekvatno za dnevnu negu jer ćete biti malo masniji i nije baš zgodno za ispod šminke. Kao noćni tretman za kožu je idealno, i po meni odlično.


Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Moisture Cream Complex -  This in one of those legendary brands, but somehow not so popular with the young crowd. I decided to deviate a bit and went for this product, that judging by the name promises a lot. Now, I like the glass jar, but not so much dipping my fingers inside and getting my germs in, especially not when packaging is 75ml, however I got a little spatula to prevent this. I have to say that the off-putting thing about the cream is the citrusy smell. It really does not smell the best, but this does wonders. You really do see a visible difference in just a few days. If you're able to ignore the smell and dipping your fingers in, this will hydrate your skin very well without making it greasy or dry. It will even out your skin-tone, which is something I'm struggling with and it will give you a subtle glow. It's great under make up and that's why this is a winner in my book. The cream is a jewel and as far as I understand it's been on the market over 40 years and clearly for a good reason. Love it! 

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Moisture Cream Complex - Ovo je jedan od onih legendarnih brendova, ali nekako ne baš popularan kod mladih ljudi. Ja sam odlučila da probam ovaj proizvod koji, ako je sudeći po imenu, obećava mnogo. Ponovo, dopada mi se stakleno pakovanje, ali ne i to da umačem prste u kremu, naročito ne kad je u pitanju pakovanje od 75ml. Ipak našla sam rešenje za to tj. malu kašičicu. Moram da priznam da je limunasti (ovo mora da je reč :D) miris kreme ne baš tako divan. Ne miriše tako dobro, ali čini čuda za kožu. Zaista vidite drastičnu razliku za samo nekoliko dana. Ako možete da ignorišete miris i to što morate da umačete prste u krenu, ovo će hidrirati vašu kožu, ali je neće učiniti masnom ili suvom. Izjednačiće boju vašeg tena, ovo je jedan od mojih problema, daće vam blag sjaj. Ovo je odlična krema ispod šminke i zbog toga je pobednik što se mene tiče. Ova krema je pravi dragulj, i ako sam dobro razumela na tržištu postoji već preko 40 godina, i očigledno sa dobrim razlogom.

Let's Take a Walk


Lately, my schedule has been hectic, but still I managed to grab a few moments for myself here and there. I find walking the most relaxing of all the activities. I can walk for hours and hours on end, a quality my boyfriend doesn't enjoy much, but puts up with. Thankfully, unlike my boyfriend (Oh, I'm so gonna get into trouble for this one) Vienna is probably the best companion for walks. There are so many beautiful places to visit and revisit. For me one such place is beautiful Stadtpark in the very heart of the city. It's an oasis of greenery and peace. An ideal place to take a walk, read a book, have a picnic, grab a cup of coffee or just relax. This time I enjoyed a peaceful walk while taking photos. I hope you'll enjoy them, and don't miss the opportunity to visit Stadtpark when you come to Vienna. You won't regret it. 

Have a wonderful upcoming weekend!

Hajdemo u šetnju


U poslednje vreme sam bila baš zauzeta, ali sam tu i tamo ipak uspela da ugrabim par trenutaka za sebe. Za mene je šetnja jedna od najboljih aktivnosti za opuštanje. Mogu da šetam satima, moja karakteristika u kojoj moj dragi baš i ne uživa, ali je ipak toleriše. Srećom, za razliku od mog dragog (uvaliću se u nevolju zbog ovog) Beč je najbolji pratilac za šetnje. Postoji mnogo divnih mesta za videti, i mesta kojim se vradi vratiti. Za mene, jedno takvo mesto je prelepi Stadtpark u srcu grada. To je oaza mira i zelenila. Idealno mesto za šetnju, uživanje u knjizi, piknik, šoljicu kafe ili za opuštanje. Ovog puta sam uživala u šetnji i fotkanju. Nadam se da ćete uživati u slikama, i da nećete propustiti priliku da posetite Stadtpark kad budete u Beču. Nećete zažaliti. 

Uživajte u divnom vikendu!
