Room tour & how I organize my makeup

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

This is pretty cool, huh?! I am just about to share the most favourite and also the most personal part of my life… I hope you will like all that aesthetically pleasing stuff and thank you so much for stopping by…

Let´s start with some general info! I moved to this flat on April and it has been love ever since… I just love coming back here from work. And my room? It is like my own oasis, heaven, hideaway, anything and everything. It might sound materialistic but it is very important to feel good at the place where you sleep and live…  The flat itself is quite spacious, bright and warm so it was not too difficult to make it a bit more cosy. This is my London baby!

When you enter the room, this is what you will see. My bed is from IKEA and I absolutely love the design. The quality of bed could have been better but what would I want for 80 pounds, right?! It is a regular double bed (not sure about the exact measurements), suitable for one or couple (if the guys feet are not too long:D). Haha… Anyway, I keep changing the bedding all the time but this one is new and there are pink peonies, my favourites! (From Morrisons) The pink bunny, I got last year around Christmas (from Clintons) and it is my favourite thing in the whole world:).  The little dream catcher, I got from my aunt. DSC_0310.JPGDSC_0315DSC_0311.JPGI bought these beautiful roses yesterday and put them next to my bed on a small night table (Ikea). I do not like having too much stuff there: book, flowers and phone is just enough.

On the window desk, I have some plants, books, pink Eiffel tower from Paris, crystal heart, ceramic bunnies also from Paris, Primark cherry blossom candle (smells soooooo good), piece of wood that I found on the Wreck beach in Vancouver and a small box with another candle:D… Lovely still life, isn´t it?DSC_0296DSC_0298DSC_0299DSC_0297One of my favourite books Pretty City London is a great inspiration for all the insta freaks living or visiting this city. I also have some baking books, journals etc. Opposite the window, there is a chest of drawers and clothing rack right next to it (both Ikea). They are very practical and fit perfectly into the style and size of the room.

And the most interesting part at the end- my vanity area! Wooohoooo! I just recently changed some bits and pieces and reorganized it so I hope you love it as much as I do. It might seem like a lot of gold together but it adds little bit of shimmers into the room. Do you agree?DSC_0323DSC_0320.JPGRose gold is the best!DSC_0321Another candle (because I am obsessed with them) is from Primark. My all time favourite scent- Fig blossom! Yummyyy! The golden jewellery stand with marble base is from Debenhams just like the tray and brush holder. DSC_0322I put all of my everyday skin care products and foundations together. DSC_0324I split all the brushes that I use and also the most used lipsticks into this cute holder. It looks very organized and clean.  (Just in case you didn´t kow, Matte liquid lipsticks from Kylie cosmetics have been my must-haves for over 2 years now.)DSC_0325Brushes (BH cosmetics)DSC_0326From left: Diorskin Forever primer, Dior Forever foundation, Estée Lauder Double Wear, Nuxe body dry oil, Just pink by Next, Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf, Clinique moisturize surge gel, Dior samples, Balmi lip balm Topshop.DSC_0327And last but not least, some wall art of course! This poster with the painting by Marie Laurenrin is just perfection itself. Combination of the pinkish and grey shades creates a beautiful harmony. I got it in Musée de l´Orangerie in Paris this summer. DSC_0304When I wake up in the morning, I need some motivation from tim to time so I put this map on the wall opposite the bed and I marked all the places I saw and will see in the near fiuture. I work because I want to travel and I travel because I want to live as much as possible! (the map is from New look)DSC_0301That is all from me today… I believe you liked this post and maybe got a bit of inspiration as well. Do not forget to hit the thumbs up button or share it. Thanks in advance:)!

Wonderful Vancouver

For those who do not know me: Hi, I am Lesi! I love travelling more than chocolate (it is a very close win) and I have been obsessed with makeup and pink colour for the past 4 years. Sounds silly? Maybe… Anyway, I have decided to share all that good stuff on my blog so thanks for reading, looking or whatever you are doing here right now:). DSC_0327I just came back from Canada. Yes, Canada! Originally, it was not even on my bucket list but when a travel addict gets a chance to go, you know how it ends. Before I start talking about everything I saw and liked, I have to point out 3 things. First: it was a dream of mine, I just didn´t know it. Second: nature has such a strong ability to calm down. And third: it is Heaven on Earth. Literally…

It all started on the 31st of August when I was asked to go. I only had a month to get ready, make a plan, buy a waterproof jacket (cause they call it Raincouver/ not Vancouver) and pack. All I knew about Canada was that it is known for its famous maple syrup and is really good at the hockey. Not much, I know. Luckily for me, my cousin who has been living there for years told me everything I needed to know, recommended places to see and made me feel so special and excited about visiting this beautiful country. We flew from London to Vancouver and stayed there for 2 weeks. The flight was quite long (ca 9 hours) and annoying. I did not sleep at all but I did enjoy the food at least (thanks British airways for giving me the best vegetarian pasta and caramel cake). We landed around 6pm on 06/10/18. It was already dark but the excitement that I felt was undescribable. We took a taxi to our lovely house in North Vancouver and the trip could have started. DSC_0335This is the list of places we were planning to see: North Vancouver- 1. Lynn Valley, 2. Grouse Mountain gondola, 3. Capilano suspension bridge, West Vancouver- 4. Lighthouse park, Vancouver- 5. Kitsilano beach, Wreck beach, Spanish beach, 6. English bay, 7. Stanley park, 8. Science world museum, 9. Gastown, 10. Chinatown, 11. Granville island,  Outside of Vancouver- 12. Squamish, 13. Shanon Waterfalls, 14. Whistler (Lost lake, Alta lake, Green lake, Olympic village)… and we managed to see everything and even more.

I will start with the North Vancouver where we stayed and discovered the most. It is separated from the downtown by ocean so you have to take a ferry or pass the bridge by bus/car. North Vancouver is basically a huge mountain full of typical American houses with their own drives. Each of them is lovely and unique. There is only one main street called Lonsdale with all the shops, restaurants, cafés etc. When you walk down to the Quay it is fine but otherwise it is a constant up the hill walk. What definitely was the highlight of this place is the incredible view from the Grouse mountain. There is a gondola going up every few mins and then you can get to the top by a chairlift. When the weather is good you can see not only the Vancouver itself but also all the small islands nearby (Vancouver island- Tofino) etc. Simply stunning! I only took few pics very carefully on my way up.

Then, we went to explore another part of the city, more precisely- beach. This was one of the places where I forgot about all the problems and just enjoyed the moment. The feeling of real happiness does exist and it is the best of all. DSC_0342Did you know that Vancouver is the only city in the world where you can swim in the ocean and ski down the mountain on the same day? These pictures are from the Kistilano beach (the baby is not mine unfortunately), which is usually very crowded during the summer. There are unbelievably many places to see, things to do. Anyone can relate. This city is just so versatile! Panorama of skyscrapers, mountains, neverending ocean= all in one. So beautiful! DSC_0345DSC_0346Kitsilano beach is not far from the Granville island where we visited the popular market which offers delicious food, souvenirs, clothes, art, simply everything. Great dinner spot for sure!DSC_0384Granville island DSC_0373Sunset over Mosque, Kitsilano beachDSC_0365Kitsilano (Grouse mountain in the back). Speaking about beaches, I cannot forget to mention another one called Wreck beach. Totally different, wild but truly mesmerizing! Pictures only capture half of the beauty but look!45202800_343807699709149_1856517820062367744_n45228761_563774714043903_8940312509269671936_nTO TRAVEL IS TO LIVE!DSC_0600DSC_0602The most beautiful sunsets are definitely here. I wish I was able to describe exactly what I felt but you just have to see it with your own eyes. Only words that come to my mind are: spectacular, touching, breathtaking! This is the place where I found my peace. It took me a bit longer but it was so worth it.

That was just the first part of the Canada segment but another one is coming tomorrow. Thank you so much for reading and I can´t wait to share more travel posts with you.

Lots of Love,
