🌸💗💁🏻‍♀️Blossoming me

Hello lovelies,

No, I am not getting married… Even though, the photos might look a bit wedding(ish)! We shot these beautiful spring pictures last year but I never had a chance to share them with you. And because it is getting warm, all is blossoming and I am home due to the self- quarantine, it is a perfect time to do it now so enjoy! (This had been my favourite photoshoot so far!)

Makeup: Dior Forever foundation 020 Light Beige, Hoola Benefit bronzer, Kylie liquid lipstick KOKO K, CHANEL Le Volume 10 Noir mascara, Urban Decay Cherry eyeshadow palette, highlighter Carli Bybel Deluxe palette.

Dress: TK Maxx, actual wedding dress by Love and Lavender

Jewellery: PANDORA

Photos by: D.P

I seriously felt like a princess/bride/Japanese geisha when shooting this. The blossoming tree and a simple pinkish makeup created a great base for perfect pics. I hope you will like them as much as I do and do not forget to follow me here and also on Instagram where I am constantly active @bylesilee.

IMG-0272Smile is the best thing any girl can wear.IMG-0251Can you see the lace details and a beautiful back of the dress? Loooove it…IMG-0239IMG-0263IMG-0366Sitting like the bride with a bouquet.

Let me know your thoughts about spring, weddings and all that good stuff:) and stay tuned! I am planning to post lots of great content in the next few weeks. Until then, I wish you lots of health and quality home time…

Lots of Love

💐💄💗Spring favourites

LONG TIME, NO BEAUTY I know… At the times where everyone talks about corona, I want to share something different (because this is a fashion/beauty/travel blog)…  The spring is finally here and I could not be more excited! Tulips, cute outfits and pink highlights- that is spring for me. Today, I chose some of the most used products at the moment which I absolutely love. But before I start, let´s take a moment and look at how beautiful these tulips and goodies are!Oooooooowwww! Ok then, let´s dive in!
1. WATERFLOWER MAGIC by Kiko, shade 002 Natural Sienna 12: This pressed bronzer does not only look good (which is very important for a pink addict and beautyholic like me) but also the colour and quality is amazing. It is very easy to apply and contour with. The shade is actually quite similar to my all time favourite Hoola bronzer by Benefit which you all know already. I bought this one a few months ago in Geneva but waited till now to try it and I am seriously impressed.
2. KYLIESKIN Face moisturizer 24$: There was a lot of thrill and drama around the whole Kylie Jenner Skincare products and I guess I know why now. I loved the Kylie lipsticks so much that I ordered 3 products from the skincare line right before Christmas and it has been an obsession ever since. My skin is very sensitive (the blemishes, acne and pores appear easily and I could barely use any skincare products before) so I was quite happy when they launched these paraben-free, cruelty-free, natural and dermatologically tested products for sensitive skin. I actually had to reorder this cream cause I ran out quickly. I use it twice every day and here is why. The consistency is light but enriching at the same time, it smells lovely and what is more important, it leaves my skin radiant, smooth and FLAWLESS and that never ever happened before, I swear. I do not need any other primers or bases, it creates a great background for any makeup. Check http://www.kylieskin.com if you haven´t already:).
3. KKW lipstick shade KIMMIE (the kit of 4 is 45$): When talking about Kylie, I must mention this liquid lipstick from her last year´s collaboration with Kim Kardashian West. I bought the whole kit but this is my favourite at the moment. The pink undertone and shiny consistency make it perfect for spring and it just really goes with anything. When I like something a lot, I have to talk about it here on my blog (you know that if you follow me) so everything that you find here are just 100% honest opinions and recommendations. 4. DERMACOL Multi-purpose brightening palette 25: Before I describe this product, I must admit that my heart stopped for a moment when I first had it in my hands. Crazy? Maybe… but this is definitely the most beautiful and original palette I have ever seen. Even better than Carli Bybel palette (read my review in the beauty section)!!!! Rose gold, glitters, hearts, all floating around! This packaging is everything! Looooooooove it so much… I need to calm down, I know:D. So it consists of 4 shades: bronzer, 2 highlighters and a blusher. All of them are pretty, well pigmented and can be worn in the spring/summer season. They fit any skin tone and type because of their naturalism. DERMACOL totally killed it and I am so happy to have this on my makeup table!
5. VERSACE EROS POUR FEMME 70: Spring without an amazing scent is just like Donatella without her father . This perfume is not new at all, I have had it for a while now but didn´t use it much. I have few in my drawer organized by season and I don´t know why but I was quite loyal to Angel by Thierry Mugler in the winter and then tried this one day and fell in love. It is not easy to describe the smell so I´ll just say few adjectives like: intensive, luxurious, floral- wooden aroma and super feminine. Visit your local drugstore/perfume shop and smell for yourself:)!
6. NAKED CHERRY by Urban Decay 45: Again nothing new, I talked about this palette already but it still is my most used eyeshadow palette. I love the quality of the shades, they are easy to blend and combine (as you can see from the picture I do use them almost every day for about a year now). I tried other Naked´s but Cherry is my favourite for sure! The pink undertones and shimmery shades is all I need in the spring:)!
My top favourites ones are: BANG BANG, TURN ON, DEVILISH AND YOUNG LOVE.
I hope this aesthetically pleasing beauty post cheered you up a bit and I cannot wish you anything else at the end just stay safe and sound!
I honestly pray for all the people suffering around the world now, I know life is not just pretty and pink but we can all make it better together.

Lots of Love

💄💋❤️My vanity table

Raise your hand if you’re a beautyholic like me!🙋🏻‍♀️

Today, I am going to share my current situation at home. I mean my beauty/ makeup situation💄😂 of course… I don’t know why but I always loved pics and videos of people sharing their home stations and beauty products. It is kind of exciting to see a piece of privacy in this insta- oriented (only show the great stuff) world.

Let’s start with all the organizers and decor. From left to right: black sandal wood candle Primark, white bird key holder (used for bracelets) John Lewis, marble treys Primark, white flower pots Ikea, transparent makeup holders Amazon, personalized profile from Croatia💁🏻‍♀️, picture frame Ikea, vanity mirror Ikea and last but not least black jewellery organizer Ikea.

I wanted to keep it minimalistic (black and white). To be honest, I use this table for studying or working on PC as well so it is not just a makeup vanity.

DSC_0344DSC_0345I’d like to have my favourite parfumes here so I can just grab them any time. La vie est belle by Lancome, Miss Cherie by Dior and Daisy by Marc Jacobs have been my loves since I was a teenager💁🏻‍♀️. Their fresh floral and feminine smell is what makes them so unique.DSC_0346Brushes, eyeliners and all the other tools have their own place in the pretty pots. I have Zoewa, Makeup revolution, Essence, NYX, etc.

When it comes to lipsticks, OH YEAH!!! I do have an obsession but how could I not? Kylie cosmetics, NYX, Pupa, Maybelline, Mark by Avon and many more belong to my precious collection. I also have some mascaras (Pupa, Dr. Belter, Maybelline, Chanel, Bourjois, L’oreal). Concealers and setting spray are also part of my vanity. DSC_0347DSC_0348I like when it’s all organized cause you know how messy can the makeup get sometimes😩. I try to keep it tidy and throw things I don’t use regularly. However, the problem is that there is way too much in the shops and you want to buy new and new stuff all the time. But we only have one face😱😏☹️ so let’s reduce the waste and only buy what we actually need! I’ll try to do it as well, promise😉!DSC_0351I hope you enjoyed this beauty post cause I really did. Talking about makeup and all that good stuff is one of the things I am very passionate about and I guess it is not just me. I am planning to write more and more so come back soon, ok? Till then…

Lots of Love,

❄️⛄️🌨Snow White Series: The reasons I like wearing white in the winter🤍

Hello my beautiful friends,

how are you all doing this year so far? Are you enjoying the beautiful but cold weather? I am more of a summer person but I must admit that the magic of winter and snow is getting under my skin. As one of my followers said: There is this particular beauty in white… It also has a calming effect and that is why I decided to have more winter holidays in the mountains (not just summer vacation).

Anyway, I was thinking about the content for my blog and because of my major focus on travelling last year, I kind of want to balance it all (fashion, beauty, travel) now. So I came up with the idea of fashion series inspired by Snow White. What do you think? Do we have anything in common? Well, certainly love for fashion and apples, xixi…

Let´s start with some winter clothing trends!

1. More is not less. Never underestimate the chilly weather and layer up your outfit. You don´t have to look like an onion, believe me! Cute sweater and a hat or big scarf can make everyone look like a celebrity!

2. Tone on tone. Colours of every winter season are about the same. Grey, black, same old same old. Try to pair similar shades and create a monochromatic look! They are always a good idea.

3. Headbands and fluffy ear covers. If you don´t live under the rock, you definitely noticed that these accessories absolutely do the job this season. They are not just super warm but also add a nice pretty detail and complete the look. So cute, isn´t it?

4. To oversize or not to oversize? When it comes to the coats, it is always better to go a size up cause you can easily squeeze more layers underneath and it looks tres chic! The same goes for the turtleneck pullovers or cardigans but be careful about the scarfs. Too many loose items can create a hanging curtain/ homeless effect!

5. Last but not least leggings! My favourites are thick black thighs and I wear them literally all the time. They are just comfy, keep everything in place and go with any sweater or a knitted dress. I love this trend so much!

Why white?

Even though my all time favourite is pink, I do love wearing white in the winter. It just goes well with the pale skin we all currently have (except the ones who don´t) and contrasts nicely with the actual white sky and snowy surrounding. White is also a colour of cleanliness and hope so wearing white clothes may bring the angel vibes in you so do not be afraid to stand out and pick few white or creamy items from your wardrobe just like I did in this photoshoot. I combined it with a brown Russian inspired jacket and ta daaa: here it the result!DSC_1055DSC_1056DSC_1058DSC_1063Few centimeters of snow and all the kids here in Slovakia (including me) are being crazy.DSC_1061DSC_1067DSC_1069Tone on tone…DSC_1072DSC_1073I went for a bright red lipstick and silver eyeliner which contrasts nicely with the white outfit. I generally use less makeup in the winter but I really wanted to achieve that Snow White look here. DSC_1076Snow White or a snowman?DSC_1080These pics are so pretty, better than an apple right?DSC_1081DSC_1082Thank you so much for reading my blog and until next time: Enjoy this cold season and stay warm but chic!

Lots of Love,

Looking back at 2019✨

Happy New Year everyone!

How was your holidays? Have you had enough food, drinks, rest and all that good stuff? I certainly have and now it is time to move my ass a bit🤦🏻‍♀️😂…

Each year passes so quickly, don’t you think? Well, another year, another list of resolutions. Take a look at mine and please let me know how I can actually manage to do what is in there cause I have no idea😂… Looking back at 2019, I must say it was not an easy one. I say it every year, but it actually gets more and more difficult, believe me. I remember thinking that senior high school was the worst one. I guess that as we grow older, more stuff comes into our lives. More adult/tough kind of stuff… C’est la vie💗.

For me, 2019 was the year of change, love and lots of travels. And that is what I am going to talk about. I had been so blessed to visit many beautiful places and do many interesting things last year and here is a little recap in case you haven’t followed me around.

JANUARY

Start of the year was pretty good. After amazing Christmas holidays with my mum in London, me and my talented friend Hany photography did a photoshoot. The result turned out great! You just have to add a little light✨🤩! Have a look yourself!

FEBRUARY

I was quite busy working so no time for travels yet. But another great photoshoot, this time: All pink everything💗🌸!

MARCH

I went to Slovakia to visit my beloved family. I don’t know a better feeling than coming back here. It doesn’t matter how long I am gone, it will always be my home🏡❤️. I only stayed a few days and didn’t take many pictures. (📷On the way home)

APRIL

This month was actually very busy. I quit my job and found a better one. Working with children has always been my dream😍❤️🥰. So that was probably the best thing I did last year. Except this spring photoshoot💗🌸😍… All time favourite for sure!

MAY

My best friend from uni got married so I flew to Slovakia again. It was the most beautiful wedding💗.

JUNE

I fell in love💗 this month and it definitely changed me and the rest of the year as well. Also, the lavender fields💜 outside of London were blooming so I had to take a chance and…

JULY

Honestly, I had the best summer. First, I went home for almost a month where I celebrated my 27th birthday. We visited Sardinia with my mum and made many great memories. Then I spent few days hiking in Slovak paradise with family… And then I went for the best road trip with my love. But enough of talking, see for yourself!

AUGUST

The mentioned road trip to Italy started at the end of July. 8 days, one car, so many places to see. I wrote a series of blog posts about it but to sum up, we visited (chronological order): Bologna, Rimini, Pescara, Termoli, Salerno, Amalfi coast, Positano, Sorrento, Pompei, Vesuvius, Anzio, Saturnia thermal spa, Florence, Pisa, Lido di Camaiore, La Spezia, Cinque Terre, Portofino and Genova. The same month, I flew to Switzerland where I stayed few months and 2 weeks later, I also went to Madrid. Crazy but amazing month!!!

SEPTEMBER

After an exhausting summer, I decided to go to Spain to do El Camino. 4 days, 120 km (see the section travel for a specific post about it) and only 2 feet. It was the most difficult walk of my life but so worth it. We also travelled a lot within Switzerland (Geneva, Evian, Lausanne) in the autumn.

OCTOBER

So happy, in love… Exploring new places with my ❤️: Chateaux d’ Oex, Yverdon les Bains, Montreaux, Tine de Conflens and many others… I also flew to London for a weekend (Seven sisters, Mersea island). You can read more about each trip in my specific blog posts- the travel section🙃.

NOVEMBER

The last month in Switzerland was busy again because I wanted to enjoy this beautiful country as much as possible. (Geneva, Interlaken, Iseltwald, Aare Gorge etc.)

DECEMBER

Last month of the year was the most difficult one for me. Lots of stress and anxiety kicked in but I still managed to stroll around London, go back home, visit Budapest, enjoy snow in Slovak paradise and spend time with my family. I know it all sounds and looks great… It was an amazing year🤩, I really don’t want to complain… But you also have to realize that often, you must sacrifice your job, time and lots of money in order to see the world. That is why I want to focus on myself in 2020 and slow down a bit. And my advice to you is the same😉!

💗Love and take care of yourself! Nothing is more important, believe me!

That is all from me, I hope you liked this little recap and few wise words🤦🏻‍♀️😂…

Let me know how was your 2019 and what are your plans for this magical year🤩✨!

Lots of Love,

By Lesi Lee🙋🏻‍♀️


My TOP 10 beauty products

It is finally Friyaaay!!! How are you guys doing? It has been a long week for me so I couldn´t be happier about the upcoming weekend. It is the last one here in Switzerland but I will just probably stay home, do some packing and chill… Anyway, I have a little confession to make: I have been cheating on beauty with travelling these past few months and it makes me feel so sad cause I really love makeup, skin care and all that good stuff. That is why I want to focus on beauty and fashion more on my blog:). So here we are: MY TOP 10 favourite products of the year (only 10?). They are all affordable, great quality, available online or in stores and pink of course… (Yup, pink obsession is still strongly on!)1. Skin care first: Garnier Rose soothing water– it is vegan, dermatologically tested, 96% natural ingredients and it leaves your skin soft, clean and radiant. I use it on a daily basis and I can already see some improvement especially with m pores. 2. It goes well with the Rose moisturizing cream from the same edition. It smells beautiful just like the fresh pink roses actually and it makes my skin look matte which is great (cause I have a very oily/problematic/sensitive skin).3./4. Another little treasure of mine are these cute nail polishes. Even though Essence and Flormar are just regular drugstore brands I looove the colour and quality of them so much. Essence Shine and Go shade 30 get ready is a really nice candy pink colour and Flormar Full color in the shade Wrap your beloved is a bright neon pink perfect for warmer seasons.5. Another obsession is definitely this perfume pen from ZARA Black Peony. It smells better than the bouquet of flowers (peonies have always been my favourites). The scent is very feminine, sweet and strong at the same time (but not that strong to get a headache). The packaging is compact and easy to take whenever you go… 100 points to ZARA for making this!6. Mario Badescu facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater is one of those things you never want to run out of. The mist was definitely love at the first sight. I use it all the time, whether I want to refresh my makeup during the day or simply hydrate the skin at the beach, it is perfect anytime, anywhere… And it smells soooo yummy! Also cruelty free, paraben free, great for sensitive skin too. What else can you ask for? Oh, I know… It costs less than 10$ online:D7. I have been talking about NUXE dry oils for years now but I still use them and each and every one of them is simply a must-have. This shimmery one is perfect for a bronzey look in the summer (or actually anytime). It is a multi- purpose product for face, hair and body. It consists of 7 precious botanical oils, it is 100% natural and costs around 20$ on their website. Hurry up to get yours! I am sure you will love it as much as I do!8./9. Same old same old, I know… I just cannot help it, I have been using KYLIE cosmetics liquid lipsticks for over 2 years now and they are my everyday go-to faves. I tried many different ones from the collection and all of them are great. Long lasting, vegan and affordable! We all get why is she a billionaire right? The shades Boy Bye and Angel are pinkish/nude/purpley shades which go with everything, I swear! The best lipsticks on market for sure!

10. Last but not least, I want to talk about Maybelline mascara LASH sensational (the first picture on the blog post). I tried it for the first time 6 months ago and I love it so so so much. It has a very small brush with 10 little bristles which creates a full fan effect (that is what the original description says). It thickens the eyelashes but it is still easily washable which is great. It costs just around 10$ and you can find it in every drugstore. That is all from my little beauty talk. Thank you so much for reading… I hope it was helpful and you learned something new as well:).

Take care, makeup and until next time,

xxx Lots of Love xxx

Carli Bybel Anastasia Beverly hills palette review

Happy Monday to all the pink lovers out there!

I recently bought this beautiful eyeshadow palette (www.anastasiabeverlyhills.co.uk £46) so if you want to know more, here is my opinion:).

This product has been promoted a lot in the past months on the social media and as soon as I saw it, I had to have it (not like I need it)… I really loved the first eyeshadow collection from Carli Bybel the Deluxe palette (BH cosmetics) and I still use it on every day basis. And once again, I am not disappointed! The formula is highly pigmented especially the shimmery shades. The application is smooth, blending as well and you can go from very neutral every day makeup look to an evening occassion one. The variety of shades is just unique!

Also, it is totally worth the money cause you get 14 shades plus the brush all in a cute packaging. img_7894The brush has both sides but I personally prefer using my fingers for a thick shimmery eyeshadow application, well anyway, it is quite good for blending though and creating the crease on the eyes. I would rate the brush 7/10. The first 7 shades have more of a cool undertone (BOLI, BYBEL, MANDALA, LIBRA, JODE, OA, BOIE). There are 4 matte shades and 3 shimmerry pigments. I personally really like the purplish/pearl one called MANDALA. The first one from the left can also be used as a  highlighter or the eyeshadow base. The quality is so good, the matte ones don´t look too powdery and the pressed pigments are not sticky at all. The other half of the palette is my favourite! I love all the warm shades, they are easily combined, neutral and great for summer/autumn season.The names are: BEAR, MOO, CHAI, CINDY, STEV, AURA and MY ANGELS. As Carli explained in her video, most of the names are her cat´s names or nicknames of her family members. My top shade is the rose gold pigment MOO (the second from left). It makes my eyes look more awake, dewy, glowy and this shade goes with any outfit, I swear!When it comes to packaging, it is so pretty you just want to put it on a shelf as a decorative piece and never touch it again. It can also be a nice statement on a dressing table/beauty corner. Loooove it so much and not just because it is pink. The pearls have a 3D glittery structure which is super cool and rose gold writing and details add a bit of fancy vibe too. 11/10 for sure:DDD. Great job Carli x Anastasia!I can´t wait to create some mesmerizing shimmery looks with this palette. It definitely is a must-have! More about beauty and fashion is coming soon (as soon as I am back in London, hopefully) so keep checking out my blog! Thanks for reading and talk to you again soon.

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:)!

 

Lots of Love,

The Mark collection by AVON: Lipsticks review

Hello my lovely readers!

Today, I am going to review the new lipsticks by AVON for you. As you already know, I am a lipstick junkie/nerd/lipholic- called it whatever you want, I am just obsessed with these new goodies! I would never believe that AVON creates such a miracle in the beauty industry. The new lipsticks PLUMP IT are supposed to make your lips look bigger and moisturize them at the same time. And they really do the job. They are not matte at all, their creamy texture is perfect, they dry up fast but do not look drain. I chose the colours that are wearable throughout the year. From the super nude to bright red. All five shades are great and cute! The price is very affordable (around 6 euros each). DSC_0287DSC_0291And the packaging is just suuuuuper cute! Black and white…you know what follows…DSC_0286They perfectly match my beauty desk scenary.DSC_0290Which one is your favourite shade? I think I love all of them:)

I wish you all the best and until next time…

Lots of Love,

All about the semi-precious stones and bracelets

Did you know that each stone has a power? And did you know that you can carry this power wherever you go? DSC_0902Bracelets made from semi- precious stones can bring you love, stress relief or even detox for your body and they look so beautiful!DSC_0908Crystal: It is a transparent stone which has a widespread use. It brings the positive energy, improves intuition and helps with meditation. Crystal is one of the most important stones because it might decrease the physical pain (or fever) and clear the mind. It is always good to have a crystal at home and hold it in the hand when needed (or you can wear a bracelet, the effect is the same).

Onyx: This black stone is generally known as the energy one (similar to Ying Yang). It can help physically but also mentally. It balances the body with the space. Onyx can reduce the inclination to the addictions as well which is why it is so popular nowadays.

Hematite: It is a shiny black stone with the protective power. Hematite can clear the blood and it is also good for the memory. The harmony of the body and soul is another important effect of this beautiful stone.

Snowflake Obsidian: It is a stone of purity. Obsidian can bring the balance to the body mind and spirit. In the past, people used it for a better skin and vains.

Coral: This red miracle does not only look good but has so many great effects at the same time. It intensifies the mother/child love. It calms the emotions and might also fight against the bad vibrations. It brings the energy and warmth. However, people who suffer from anxiety should not wear it cause it could deepen the feelings. DSC_0914DSC_0926Keshi (Freshwater) pearl: These beautiful pearls (or the angel´s teardrops) have been popular among women for ages. They represent the protection against injuries, harmony and love. (Pearls are girl´s best friends! Not diamonds…) DSC_0927Rose Quartz: This is probably the most beautiful and also the most important one beause it is the stone of LOVE! Everyone needs love, no need to comment it more…

Pink Jadeite: There are many types and colours of jadeite but I chose this one (guess why). This stone can bring happiness, friendship and harmony. It is also a stone of good sleep. In some cases, it may release too many emotions so one needs to be careful where and how to use it. DSC_0931Amethyst: Purple and beautiful! It exchanges energy for love. Amethyst is really strong and ofted used for spiritual purposes. It can bring good dreams, decrease the alcohol in the blood and also harmonize the body and soul.

White Nacre: Truly powerful and protective stone! It is used against the bad influences and negative energy. It can absorb it and change it for the positivity. Nacre can also bring the money, protection and safe background into the lives of individuals.DSC_0913These ones are my absolute favorites: rose quartz (pink), amethyst (purple), crystal (transparent) and white nacre (white). The combination of the beauty and power is just wonderful!DSC_0952I have really been into the crystals recently (another addiction I guess:D) and that is why I decided to write about it. Whether you believe or not, you have to admit that there is some kind of beauty and magic in it.

Which one is your favourite?

Lots of love,

Lesi Lee

(P.S. Part 2 is coming soon because there are so many more amazing stones I need to talk about!)
