My Beauty Wishlist

I just realised that I'm always creating wishlists for a lot of different things, shoes, bags, coats, jackets, and any other piece of clothing possible. I do this because I have so much fun browsing through the different web stores to see what they have but also because it helps me a lot to define the pieces that I really love and need so that I can organise my next purchases better.
However, I noticed that I have never created a wishlist of the different beauty products that I'm currently craving about so I thought it would be a great idea to do one and share it in a blog post with you! So let's get down to it:

1- Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

Currently, I don't have any good foundation in my make up kit and I have started to get obsessed with this product after I saw Tamara Kalinic from the blog Glam and Glitter recommend it and I think that we have a very similar skin tone so I really feel that if it works for her it should look good on my skin as well. Also, I have never tried a Clinique product before and I would really love to try this one. I love all kind of products that are multipurpose like this, which is a foundation and concealer at the same time. I think that's pretty practical and convenient.

2- Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream

I have tried this product last December at the Kiehl's store in Buenos Aires and I really loved it! I think it looks very natural and makes my skin look great and healthy. Also, this product has SPF 50 which I consider as a major plus because I always like to be protected from the sun. So I would really love to buy this product once I finish with my beloved Hydra Life BB Cream from Dior.

3- Dior Lip Sugar Scrub Sweet Exfoliating Balm

I currently don't have any product to exfoliate my lips and I really think that Dior has had an amazing idea with this sugar exfoliating balm. It looks so tempting and at the same time practical, I'm really dying to try it! 

4- EcoTools Brush Set

I have seen this brush set when I was in Buenos Aires and now here in Croatia, I have seen it again! I don't know about you but I really think it's a sign of the universe that I should buy it :P I think this set has the basic and most useful makeup brushes and I love that they are eco-friendly. So I will let you know if I end up buying them ;)

5- Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in the shade Candy Rose

Whenever I buy nail polish I don't know why but my eyes always are attracted by very similar colours. Most of the times are red, coral and burgundy shades. I guess I'm a very classic kind of girl when it comes to nail polishes but this tone from Max Factor has really caught my attention. It's still quite classic but it's a bit different from the colours I normally wear so I'm not so sure if it would look good in my hands but I guess I could give it a try!

So this is it! Those are the beauty products that I'm really wanting right now, I hope you have liked this post and in case you already have any of these products please let me know your opinion!! I would really love to know your thoughts about them :)

Enjoying the Weekend at Maksimir Park

One of the first places I went to visit in this second stay in Zagreb was Maksimir park. This was my number one priority because last time I was here, I didn't know about this beautiful and natural spot, that is pretty close to the city centre and I was very excited to see it with my own eyes.
Maksimir park is situated more or less 3 kilometres away from the centre and it's very easy to reach with the tram but I decided to get there walking because that is the most practical way for me to exercise a little bit while being here. So, I went to the park on my first Sunday in the city because it was such a perfect sunny day and, for me, it was impossible not to go there to enjoy the nature with such a lovely day.
When I finally arrived after half an hour walking I realised that many people had the same idea, the park was full of locals walking their dogs, running, enjoying some time with their children. It's like the typical activity of the people here in Zagreb to visit Maksimir park on the weekends when the sun is shining. But still, it wasn't crowded at all. Like the rest of the city, in Maksimir there was also movement and a good vibrant atmosphere but the park is so huge you can easily find your own way to a more quiet place to sit there and relax.
Inside the park, there are some beautiful lakes which were completely frozen the day I visited it and that was something very especial for me to see. 
Also, there is the entrance to the zoo and that's why it is a very popular plan for families to visit the park and the zoo. 
As I said before, the park is huge and I was only able to visit part of it, but I still think it is an incredible place to visit and it's great that is so close to the city centre. I'm sure I will be visiting it again to take a look at the rest but meanwhile please enjoy these beautiful pictures! :)

This dog looks exactly like mine!

Vitamina Fall Winter 2017 Campaign with Chiara Ferragni

I feel like everytime a new season comes I'm always talking about Vitamina's new campaign but the truth is that since they have started to design their collections inspired by a particular "it girl", I always get very excited to see how the new collection and campaign will look like because I think that they always find a way to merge the essence of the brand with the particular style and personality of the person they choose.
In the previous years, they had Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung as the face of their campaigns and last summer they have introduced another major it girl: Chiara Ferragni. She has one of the greatest styles in the fashion world, very playful and fun but super elegant, feminine and chic at the same time, so I see that tone of freshness and trendiness in this new Fall Winter collection from Vitamina. As the previous Spring Summer campaign, this one was also shot in Los Angeles, where Chiara lives, so for me, it's also interesting that they choose to do the photos in the place that it's attached to that particular figure because it's like a unity. One can't think about Olivia Palermo and not imagine her in New York or when we think of Alexa Chung we also always have our minds in London. The same happens with Chiara Ferragni and Los Angeles. So, I hope you like the campaign as much as I do and I'm really looking forward to trying some of those pieces from Vitamina! :)
