My autumn wardrobe inspo plus some of the items I will definitely be buying soon, like this Mac lipstick in Chili, or these leopard Topshop boots… Or these studded ankle boots. Enjoy xoxo
Some time ago I’ve been asked if I’d like to try some of the products from Czech website Spabox.cz (Facebook: Spa box) and I finally tested them all out so I can give better review 🙂
Most of the products on the website are cruelty free and are ethically sourced from various European countries like Italy etc. This post maybe especially interesting for people living in Eastern Europe as it’s relatively close to Czech Republic and exchange rate can be very attractive for some countries – basically you get quality products for a good price! 🙂
I’ve been given 4 products: hand cream, bath bomb, shampoo bar and a soap. Let’s start!
Shampoo bar – very moisturizing, foams easily and smells nice. It’s quite heavy in consistency so works the best on dry but healthy hair. It reminds me a lot of Lush shampoo bars so it’s a great alternative for people who do not have access to/money for Lush products. My hair is really damaged from bleaching (I’ve gone for silver hair few months ago) so it needs very light products, however if you’ve got healthy, not very damaged hair this is gonna work great for you!
Honey hand cream – very light consistency, quickly dries on skin and moisturizes hands very well plus smells lovely! Good travel size and metal packaging makes it easy to pop in your bag and always have with you!
Mini milky bath bomb – very nice girly, pink candy/strawberry smell, foams lovely skin feels moisturized afterwards. Great little product if you fancy relaxing bath plus the price is SO good 🙂
Rose soap – couldn’t find a link 😦
Smells like roses, skin feels really soft and moisturized and it lasts for ages (even though it’s small)! I still have it and have been using it for couple of weeks now:)
All in all I think the website is worth having a look – you may need to translate some products though:) I saw that now they’ve introduced cruelty free, natural make up products as well so it’s very exciting! Very affordable prices and good quality is something that I’m always looking for in cruelty free cosmetics.
So feel free having a little browse and I hope this review helps someone! 🙂 xx
Yesterday I got back from Ibiza and ahhhh I’m really feeling holiday blues! What a beautiful place! I’ve a great time exploring the island with my friend and we only had a budget of £400 that we didn’t even spend! I will make another post about how to have a great time without spending lots of money:)
for now enjoy some beautiful views xx
Hoodie + dress – Pull & Bear
Following my recent post – all the digging I’ve done inspired me even more and now I have a little list in my head what I want in my wardrobe. I also finally got Photoshop so time to start learning – EXCITED! 😀
Recently I was thinking quite a lot about high street brands copying or being inspired by fashion designers. The newest collections in many shops are literal copies of high end designs and many brands don’t even try to pretend they imitated some of the best sellers or even entire collections. While I was walking around local shopping center I’ve spotted some of the most obvious ones. Even though I quite like some of the items I think such a strong ‘inspiration’ by someone else’s ideas isn’t alright. I totally understand not everyone can afford real designer stuff and it’s nice to have something that is trendy and in fashion right now – especially when you’re a fashion junkie;) But on the other hand such ruthless stealing high end designs it’s not really okay. I think there should be a balance between being inspired and trying to incorporate some of the elements into a collection and copying the garment just using cheaper materials.
Take a look below and let me know what do you think:
Vetements (original design)
H&M – new collection £39.99
Bershka – new collection £45.99
Yeezy season 3 – designs + colour palette (Earthy, muted, faded; natural pinks, greys, browns, greens etc.)
Topshop (they didn’t hold back at all 🙂
Zara copies (they also look like Dior slides)
Givenchy fur sliders
There’s many many more examples just these ones really caught my eye. I’m really not sure how I feel about it – is it good or is it bad? I know for sure if I had money I would always buy the original designs and support the creators. For now I guess I will have some moral issues whilst debating buying something super trendy and totally copied from other brand 🙂
