Too Much - Aroma Vaporizer


It's so pink! Some time ago got this Lexon's aroma vaporizer "Too Much" design by Karim Rashid.

This pink device combines multiple functions in one compact object, it is an air humidifier, an aroma vaporizer and LED light as well.

Just need to add some water and a few drops of aroma - I use Bergamot oil by Muji. Gives a mild & fresh scent. It has an auto shut off feature and automatically shuts off when it runs out of water. 






Couldn't resist of taking some snapshots of my lovely peonies...

Today it's a bank holiday here in Hungary as there's not only Whitsunday but also Whitmonday. In Hungary this holiday is called "pünkösd" and peony is called "pünkösd rózsa".

Practical Princess Perfect Wardrobe



The season has changed already long ago, but my closet is still full of winter pieces... Perhaps it's better to sit down, have a cup of coffee and make a plan. A while ago I bought the Finnish version of Elika Gibbs' book Practical Princess Perfect Wardrobe (Unelmien vaatehuone). She's a real organizational whizz and wardrobe expert. Kate Moss has said: "Elika is a practical genious..."

Some practical tips to start with:
Go trough your wardrobe and make six piles
  • for everyday use
  • the precious ones
  • "maybe" pile
  • no-nos
  • needs washing, ironing, repairing
  • for another season
When your clothes are hung and organized you are able to see, at a glance, what you have, and crucially don't have. 







Get rid of a piece, if
  • the details of it are not your style
  • it doesn't fit to your body shape
  • the colour is unflattering for your complex or hair colour
  • it just doesn't feel right
Save it, if
  • it's a classic and made of good material
  • it fits to you perfectly
  • the colour is right for you
  • the shape and material are currently in fashion








The more organized one is, the easier one's life becomes!


This is just something to start with. I will definitely come back to this book asap!

ps. there's no coffee in my cup - it's chaga mushroom drink...

Flowering Lilacs


Bought some lilacs at the market nearby my home. In the beginning of the wek the market is not that busy and not all the stalls are occupied, but still there're farmers coming from the countryside to sell products they are growing in their fields and gardens. You can be pretty sure that everything is organic - at least that's what I want to believe in.

The lilacs stay pretty in a vase for a couple of days only, but despite that I like to buy a huge punches of them and have them almost in every room to spread the lovely scent. It's such a short time in the beginning of summer that you can enjoy them.

//Ostin sireenejä tosta kodin lähelllä olevalta torilta. Viikon alussa torilla on yleensä melko hiljaista eikä myyjiä ole ilmaantunut joka pöydälle, mutta aina siellä kuitenkin on joitakin farmareita, jotka ovat saapuneet myymään itsekasvattamiaan tuotteita. Myydyt tuotteet ovat siis luomua - ainakin itse haluan uskoa niin.

Sireenit kestävät kauniina maljakossa vain muutaman päivän, mutta sitä huolimatta haluan ostaa reilun kokoisia kimppuja ja laittaa niitä lähes joka huoneeseen levittämään ihanaa tuoksua. Harmi, että sireeneistä voi nauttia vain niin lyhyen ajan alkukesästä. 









Lilac is a colour that is a pale violet tone representing the average colour of most lilac flowers. It might also be described as dark mauve or light purple.

Resultime Eye Cream By Collin Paris


5 Expertise Eye Cream uses a unique formula to fight the five signs of ageing in the eye contour area: dark circles, puffiness, fat pockets, wrinkles and sagging. Sounds a perfect remedy for my eyes!

The recommendation how to use it: Apply in the morning & evening, starting from the corner of the eye. Massage using small circles and smoothing movements.

This innovative French brand is at the forefront of collagen science; pioneering the use of Vectorised Micro-Collagen to stimulate skin cell efficacy and quickly transform the look and feel of our complexion. It's what the experts use on themselves. 

The texture is rich yet quickly absorbing, and makes the skin looking smoother and feeling good.

Eye-opening stats:
The skin around eyes is 5 to 10 times thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of the face. It therefore loses its elasticity much faster, not to mention that it is used constantly, with eyelids blinking or contracting up to 10 000 times every day. 

What to eat to keep the eye contour area nice & smooth?
Many herbs, such as oregano, turmeric and rosemary, and food such as garlic, green tea, blueberries and ginger contain flavonoids and polyphenois that limit free-radical production. Adding a daily essential fatty acid fish oil supplement high in omega-3 is a very beneficial alternative as well. 


//5 Expertise Eye Cream käyttää ainutlaatuista menetelmää taistelussa silmänympärysalueen ikääntymistä vastaan eli tummia silmänympäryksiä, turvottuneisuutta, silmäpusseja, ryppyjä ja silmäluomien roikkumista vastaan. Kuulostaa täydelliseltä tuotteelta    omille silmilleni!

Käyttösuositus: käytä aamuisin ja iltaisin, aloita tuotteet levitys silmän ulkonurkasta, hiero hellävarasiesti käyttäen pyöriviä liikkeitä.

Tämä ranskalainen merkki on kollageeni-tieteen edelläkävijä; se käyttää vektoroitua mikro-kollageenia, joka edistää ihon solujen uudistumista ja muuntaa nopeasti ihon ulkonäköä sekä myös sen tunnetta. Juuri sitä, mitä asiantutijat itse käyttävät.

Voide on täyteläinen, mutta nopeasti imeytyvä ja saa ihon näyttämään tasaisemmalta ja myös tuntumaan hyvältä.  

Silmät avaavaa tilastoa
Silmän ympärysiho on 5-10 kertaa ohuempaa ja siinä on vähemmän rasvasoluja kuin muualla kasvoissa ja tämän vuoksi se menettää elastisuuden nopeammin. Silmänympärysiho on myös jatkuvasti koetuksella, sillä räpyttelemme silmiämme jopa 10 000 kertaa päivässä.  

Mitä syödä, jotta silmänympärysiho säilyisi kauniina ja kimmoisana?
Monet yrtit, kuten oregano, kurkuma ja rosmariini sekä ruoka-aineet kuten valkosipulia, vihreä tee, mustikat ja inkivääri sisältävät runsaasti flavonoideja ja polyfenoleita, jotka rajoittavat vapaiden radikaalien tuotantoa. Hyvä vaihtoehto on myös lisätä tarpeellisten rasvohappojen saantia syömällä päivittäin omega-3:a sisältävää kalaöljyä. 




I so hope that using this cream on regular basis it will do wonders!!!

//Mä niin toivon, että tämä voide säännöllisesti käytettynä tekisi ihmeitä!!!

Lily Of The Valley


Lily of the valley has been my favourite flower ever since I was a child. The reason for it may be the fact that it's blooming in Finland in the beginning of June - same time as I'm having my birthday. In Hungary teh blooming time for this flower is at least a month earlier and the season is very short. 

Love the alluring scent of the lily of the valleys! 



Lily of the valley is the national flower of Finland since 1967.

Lily of the valley was featured in the bridal bouquet at thewedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Lily of the valley was also the flower chosen by Princess Grace Kelly to be featured in her bridal bouquet.
