MORNING AT LAHAINA, MAUI

 Hello all! I haven't been here for a while, the reason: I have been traveling and also have been very busy with few projects that I can't wait to tell you about.
I went to Hawaii with my hubby and we had a great time together. Our last destination was Lanai but we slept one night in Maui and had half day to explore it. We spend the whole morning in Lahaina, the first capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii (1820 - 1845) and the second spot more visited in Maui. 
Here some pictures...
 6:00 am in the morning, we had a terrible jet lag, so we went to explore the island. 

 How cute are these kiddie's clothes? 

From shops, art galleries to restaurants, Lahaina is also full of history and interesting places to visit.

 While I am traveling, I always choose to wear confortable clothes over anything else. 

I am wearing:

Jacket: Legit
Dress: Woolworths 
Sneakers: New Balance bought at Superbalist 
Bag: Guess 
Shades: Forever 21

EXPLORING SOUTHBROOM

There aren´t words to describe how happy were my days in Southbroom, a coastal village located 143 kms south west of Durban. South Africa is a beautiful country and every destination surprises me in a positive way. From discovering new beaches, to spend quality time as a family, these holidays will be forever in my heart.  
 This was the first time that our daughter Maité saw the sea. It was an unforgettable moment. 

Love when I see these 2 together. Can you spot that they are wearing the same clothes? I gave them these outfits as Christmas present. 
 Wild sea and beaches made where our everyday landscape.
 Maite had a blast being dirty and playing with the sand. 
Granny´s pool, one of my favorite places in Southbroom. I could spend hours inside this pool. 
  There isn´t any other happier place for me than being in the beach. 
 Messy hair don't care and means fun;) 

 My little angel behaved amazingly in this trip. It was so easy to go everywhere with her. 

Luka also had a great time. We love seeing him getting dirty and interacting with nature. What better experience can we give to our kids? 
Barefoot and swimwear: His everyday outfit. 
 Amazing landscapes and sunsets 

 For me, one of most important important things in life are creating experiences with the people I love. I always remember with a smile the holidays that I spent with my family when I was little, I have such special memories of all of them. 
I really wish this for my kids. 
Thanks South Africa for being such a special part in our current life, this adventure here as family, so far, has been wonderful.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS THAT EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ON HER CHRISTMAS LIST

Christmas day is around the corner! I love this time of year, filled with music, good wishes and so much love. Have you started writing your Christmas List yet? 
I know this blog is also read by men so I'd like to ask you…  Do you already know what to buy for your mom, sister, wife or girlfriend?.
Well, I have compiled a list of beauty products that will fit perfectly under your Christmas tree, for you, or your loved ones. 
Grab a pen and read my recommendations below: 
 
EXUVIANCE DEEP HYDRATION TREATMENT 
This is a lightweight water gel formula that enriches the skin with  powerful ingredients. This overnight moisture mask slowly melts into the skin, providing a long-lasting hydration boost to both the surface and lower levels of skin. This treatment works while you sleep, reversing the damage from environmental factors that age your skin like pollution or UV rays.
 
I really love this product! I've been using it for the last month and I have noticed a big improvement in my skin. I forgot to mention that this gel also refills the deep reserves of natural skin moisture, restoring the skin and leaving you with a feeling of suppleness and comfort. Apply it at night with a nice massage after cleansing your skin. Leave it for 5 minutes and then seal it in with your night cream. Use it 2-3 times a week or whenever you feel your skin needs a boost. Suitable for all type of skin.
 
To find your nearest stockist please visit www.genop.co.za or you can purchase Exuviance online at either www.skinmiles.com or www.dermastore.co.za” 
 
CLARINS MULTI – ACTIVE INSTANT EYE REVIVER
 It took me a long time to find an eye cream that suits me. Did you know that the eye contour skin is 3 - 5 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face? That’s why it's so important to find a product that targets dark circles, fine lines, dehydration and puffiness. This is what I found with Clarins Multi-Active instant Eye Reviver - enriched with illuminating pigments that instantly lighten and brighten the eye contours. 
I loved this products massage tool tip, made of Cryo-metal, which enhances drainage to help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. The cooling sensation while you apply it, is heaven! 

LA ROCHE – POSAY LIPIKAR REPLENISHING CLEANSING OIL
Cleaning your skin with oil? Sounds strange right? La Roche – Posay is always innovating with products that target all your skin's different needs. This is a deeply nourishing formula that protects the skin from drying out, leaving the skin nourished and cleansed. I like using this cleansing oil at night, so I go to bed with the feeling that my skin is revived with its highly concentrated ingredients, during my shower. I also love using it after shaving my legs, it restores and moisturizes my skin after I literally sanded it with the blade. This product is soap, alcohol and paraben-free. Excellent for people who suffer from dry skin or eczema. 
 
 SALON CARE ENZYME EXFOLIANT 
Talking about enzyme exfoliants is so new for me. I often saw them at spas where I have facials, but I never tried them for myself. I am so glad this product was sent to me. This is a smooth exfoliant based on pineapple and papaya enzymes.  It is safe yet effective and can be used for all skin types. It speeds up results and polishes the skin and removes dead skin cells making the skin softer and smoother. Suitable for all type skins but especially for those with very sensitive skin. 
 
TIERRY MUGLER ALIEN EAU SUBLIME
A perfume is the perfect accessory to complement your look. It says a lot about your personality and can become your signature scent that makes others remember you.
There's Nothing like wearing a perfume that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Alien Eau Sublime is a symbol of empowerment and serenity. This is a fragrance with notes of Mandarine, orange, galbanum, jasmine, tiare flower, heliotrope, cashmeran wood, and white amber; definitely my favorite from Tierry Mugler. If you are looking to try a new perfume that makes you feel feminine and attractive, you better put this one on your list. Just keep in mind that it is a limited edition so maybe buy two ;)

LAMELLE HELASE PHOTO REPAIR CREAM 
Finish the year looking pretty and using a cream that repairs your skin from all the sun damage of the previous 365 days. 
Why is this product so special? Because it can physically repair skin cells on an atomic level. This cream not only protects your skin from the full spectrum of the sun’s harmful UV rays, but also repairs the DNA of skin cells that have already been damaged through over-exposure. This is definitely a must have product for the festive season. 
 
KAHVE BODY SCRUB
Kahve is the sexiest summer body scrub. Inspired by the benefits of coffee and matcha, Kahve Skin body scrubs embrace the antioxidant and healing properties of nature's finest ingredients. I wanted to add this product to a post that I plan to write about Post Partum Beauty Products that Every Woman Should Have, but I also think that this body scrub is not only for women but also for men. 
 
I love using it in the shower with my husband and scrubbing his back with a gently massage. He also does it on my back.  I’ve also used it on my upper legs and tummy to reduce cellulite after the birth of my daughter. Due to its  high quantities of caffeine found naturally in the Robusta bean, this product also stimulates drainage, refines contours and tightens up the skin.  Everytime I use Kahve,  my skin feels soft, shinny and vibrant. Buy it for you and an extra one for your loved ones.

VICHY IDEAL SOLEIL 3 in 1 50 ANTI TACHES AND ANTI DARK SPOTS
During Summer sunny days where you are relaxing by a swimming pool or by the beach, you need to protect your skin with the right products. This is a tinted sunscreen non-greasy texture for daily use. This product corrects dark spots day after day thanks to its pigmented/colored formula enriched in Phe-Resorcinol, an innovative active ingredient against spots and protects from UVA rays. As it comes in only one shade, I advice you before you buy it, to try the sample on your skin and see if its matches your skin color. 
 
AP24 WHITENING FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE
You may be wondering why am I suggesting a toothpaste on my Christmas list? Well, we all want to have a healthy and bright smile, especially for the end of the year festivities. I tried this product months back and I really liked it. Much cheaper than a Whitening Treatment, it delivers results from the first time you brush. Ap-24 whitening fluoride toothpaste is a premium toothpaste created and distributed by Nuskin Enterprises. With no Peroxide and no bleaching agents, this non abrasive product has revolutionized tooth whitening.  
If you want better results, brush your teeth with a dry tooth brush (don’t wet it). Also take a picture of your teeth before using the toothpaste and then take other picture right after. Then take more pictures after 2 weeks and one month. You might not see the difference on daily basis but you will be surprised when you compare the pictures!
 
That’s all for now, Hope this list was useful for you and that you get spoilt rotten during this festive season. If you want to know more about each product, feel free to send me a mail ;) 

Wishing you a lovely end of the year and wonderful festivities!
