LIFE IN INSTAGRAM

1+2+3: Well it has been a while but you all know I've been to Italy for a beautiful wedding! It was seriously a fairy tail. We went to Rome for a new days and after that to Perugia. I was around 30 weeks pregnant so it became a bit harder to do so much as possible. Flights/traveling, walking around all day, the heat... you name it. But I'm glad I went because it was great! And the Italian icecreams?.. AHHHH , could write an whole article about that haha.

MY FAVORITE LUXURIOUS PRODUCTS IN MY BATH BASKET

 A few weeks  ago I've ordered a basket from Riviera Maison. It fits perfectly at the end of the bathtub and its gorgeous. Time to re-organize and I thought it would be fun to show you guys what's in it. Mostly on Sundays I create a whole little spa for myself. Just for an hour or two.. enjoying myself and pampering to the fullest.
Bath Soaps. They just look so cute and make the bathroom smell lovely! It's almost a shame to use them also because there not cheap but I have finished my Allure one a while ago. I like to save these as new.. for as long as possible. let's see how that works out ;)
Chanel no5 and COCO mademoiselle
 Luxurious scented candles, I got such a thing for them! This " Loose Lips" from By Redo is seriously amazing. It smells like lipstick and when your in the bath with a mask on your skin and in your hair it's the best moment in life haha!

COCO NOIR from Chanel stole my heart. I love to layer with these products. Bath foam, body lotion and when I'm done bathing some parfume.
Of course I want to get out of the bath with in instant glow on my face. I love this one from Sisley.
Its the Radiant Glow Expresss Mask. I just keep it on for 15 minutes.
Bath salts! I love the whole stress relieve range from Aveda. It smells lovely and it brings down the stress right away..
Chanel showergel or bathfoam is the perfect treat.. If you ever want to spoil your lady.. just sayin ;)

Rituals Heavenly Hammam. My boyfriend like this a lot because of the eucalyptus fragrance in it.
Oil is always nice to have in the bath! It leaves your skin so moisturized afterwords. 
Also nice when you have a cold! Populair in the wintertimes ;)
Diptyque Voilette is a candle I took with me the last time we were in Paris at the Diptyque store.
When I am not in the bath it stands in our toilet. More as decoration ;) 

Well, I hope you liked to see my favorite bath products!

PERSONAL UPDATE: 8 MONTHS PREGNANT

Oh hi there! I am 8 months pregnant right now and I thought it would be fun to give you guys a quick update.
Lets start with the fact that I feel great! Time went by so fast and I can't wait to welcome her.


The first trimester
From other woman I've heard that the first 3 months are hell.. feeling nauseous, tired and insecure.
I had nothing from all that.  I felt great! My blood pressure was kind of low so feeling a bit dizzy in the morning was something that was a little bit annoying but thats all. Oh and sometimes I felt like taking a little nap in the afternoon after work ;)

The second trimester:
More energy and you could not see anything yet! At the end of this trimester you saw people looking at my belly like... is she pregnant or just a bit fat? Well it was only (and still is) my belly that came in weight. We could tell everyone about our little secret that we had for weeks!

The third and last trimester:
Still going strong! Feeling a bit more tired but still as good as normal. The off-side is that I have gestational diabetes we just find out. So a diet and checking my blood sugars a few times a day is what I am doing now. I only came 9 kilo's extra in weight so thats normal for a pregnancy.

So I  am looking back on this pregnancy very enthusiastic. I felt myself shining all the time and didn't suffer from hormones or weird cravings. I would do it all again if it would be the same!
You never know how it will go and it's all about bad of good luck!

One month left! We are so excited and curious how she would look like.
I feel her so much in my belly.. sometimes it hurts haha!
Kicking and playing.. sometimes my whole belly is dancing around.

Hope you enjoyed my little update. Will update again when she is here!

I'VE BOUGHT MYSELF A LITTLE GIFT

 Sometimes you just feel like treating yourself. That could be your favorite meal, a day at the spa..
But shopping always work for me and specially when its something from Chanel.
I've heard a lot about their new long lasting nail polishes. I love their nail polish fro years but lest be honest they were not very long lasting. Especially " Blue Satin" was gone on two days and thats one of my favorite. Time for a change! I am very in-to nudes these days  so I felt for " Organdi".
Perfect, just perfect. See the color on the nails.
So this was the perfect way to give myself a little treat the other day.

NEW SISLEY LAUNCH SKINCARE TROPICAL RESINS COLLECTION


I am very excited for this new launch of skincare products from Sisley!
It's perfect for my age and skin so I am hooked at this moment. I am talking about the Tropical Resins collection. There are 3 products I am telling you more about.

My skin is quit clear but..break outs come and go.
At this moment they are more hormonal than random because of my pregnancy but I must say I can not complain at all.Only a few and once in a while. But of course better non so I like to use products that keeps my skin as clear as possible. But no heavy products because that is not necessary.
When my skin is a bit out of control I use the products and my skin gets clean right away.
I am obsessed with the smell of these products btw!


Serum Intensif
Highly concentrated in purifying key ingredients, the Intensive Serum provides visible effectiveness: 
- it intensely purifies the skin and significantly reduces shiny areas (extracts of Benzoin, Java Tea, Burdock and Meadowsweet).
- it unclogs pores and refines the skin texture (Salicylic Acid).
- it visibly diminishes imperfections due to the soothing properties of Incense and Myrrh extracts and D-Panthenol. 
Rebalanced, skin quality is clearly improved. After 7 days, imperfections are significantly reduced.

Daily or targeted use of the Tropical Resins collection considerably improves and addresses skin imperfections and blemishes.

SISLEY NEW PHYTO LIP TWIST

 Sisley is launching 3 new phyto lip twists. A different shape and one transparant! 
Take a look.
The colors: 16 sheer, 18 tango and 17 kiss.

I'm wearing 17 kiss in this photo. I must say, when there is less light the color looks more red-ish than pink. This photo is taken with a flash so now it looks more pink.

Available this month.
