Wine Tasting in Maribor

Hi Dolls!

Writing from Maribor again, has been a while. We got the opportunity to attend a wine salon type of event, it was the 7th international showcase of wine and delicacy products. They had Slovenian wine and typical food, it was quite a nice event if you're a wine lover. It was also a good opportunity to taste some Slovenian specialties. I found it entertaining and something new to experience, but also a bit tiring. Supposedly we should try something new everyday, so it's always good to branch out. Would you enjoy attending a wine showcase?

Have a pink-tastic day!

Food Diary #10

On todays Food Diary post I want to talk about home cooked meals. I love cooking, but am quite understanding that some people do not enjoy such activities. Here are some reasons why I love it: I can make anything healthier by controlling what goes into my meals, I can adjust everything to my taste palette and cooking is fun, for me at least.

This doesn't mean I don't enjoy eating out, but I am trying to be more health conscious and care for my body. It's ok to have cheat days, so don't get upset if you eat out, but try to have just a cheat day or two per week. If you're someone who hates cooking or just like to eat out a lot, try to find some healthier restaurants or healthier alternatives at your favourite restaurants.

Have a pink-tastic day!

We made a healthy pineapple cake with whole wheat flour instead of white one, coconut milk instead of cow milk, coconut oil instead of butter, etc on the healthy alternatives. It turned out amazing, I hadn't expected it to be this good.

Update/Rambling Post

Hi Dolls!

It seems like I haven't done a rambling post in a long time. I like just talking and updating you on what has been going on. Sadly there haven't been any outfit posts this month and I don't know when that will happen again. Part of the reason is that I have moved to a new apartment with a girlfriend, which kept us busy. Between finding a place and then cleaning, decorating, time flies by and I didn't get around to take pictures. The other part would be the weather, since I rarely take pictures in freezing weather. I really need to develop a strategy that allows me to take photographs without freezing.

By the way, I don't like moving! The expectations are always high and you get disappointed when your dream apartment hasn't already been created by someone else. Not to mention the actual moving where you have to transport all you stuff, it's painful and exhausting. I just wanted to trow away half of it, which I didn't. Considering that I donated a lot of shoes and clothing this year, I don't know where all these items came from. While moving I told myself that it was time to stop shopping so much, however after two weeks while trying to find a cute outfit I felt as if I had no clothing. How is this possible? I am rational and see my closets are full, but still can't find a cute outfit sometimes. At least I respect the rule of donating everything I didn't wear in a year, with small exception to "sentimental items".

I want to get back into a fitness routine. I am quite slim naturally, but I want to get toned . I bought some new fitness clothing, which I'll share with you in an upcoming outfit post. Getting new sport gear motivates me to exercise more. Is it just me? It was one of my resolutions for this year to be more fit, so I have to keep trying. I go through periods where I'm super into it and go every day, but then I slack off for a long period of time. Part of the problem is that I don't have a fitness studio near me and I loose a lot of time on the way there. I am not the type of person to run or exercise outside, nor will I ever be.

November should me more interesting, since I will be traveling. I will try to take a lot of outfit pictures but also traveling ones. I'm not going anywhere new, but still am incredibly happy to travel.
What have you been up to?

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses!

Red Lips Obsession

Hello my Dolls!

I have to admit my obsession for red lipstick. Some of you might think that having five red lipsticks isn't a lot and others my think it's kind of unnecessary. Truthfully it is unnecessary to have five different shades of red lipsticks and I was happy even when I had just two. For me red lipsticks inspires elegance and looking sexy, being bold but classy, if that makes any sense.

Some of the shades may look alike, but they are all a little bit different. The NYX one is the softest and easiest to pull off anytime. MAC Morange and YSL Nr. 13 look more similar in picture than they are in real life. The YSL one is more red toned, while the MAC one is more orange toned and warmer. For me the YSL shade is a year round lipstick, while the MAC one I tend to use more during spring and summer, do to the orange tones in it. MAC Red and Chanel Nr. 104 look almost identical in the photograph, but there is a difference. MAC Red is cooler toned, more of a berry red lipstick and the Chanel one is a shade warmer. They are similar, but unique at the same time. My favourites at the moment are the Chanel and the YSL one. Which is your favourite red lipstick?

Have a pink-tastic day!
