Valentine's Day Wishing

My mind always seems to slip into a dual mode whenever any type of holiday or anniversary creeps by. On one hand, it is darling to show some love towards the one you love with a little sign of appreciation as I know such small gestures and gifts can make someone’s day. On the other hand, the media have become ridiculous and have a real knack of turning a nice simple detail of the day into a pompous nightmare. And to be quite honest, any type of anniversary or holiday means nothing if the rest 364 days of the year you’re treating someone as your doormat. We won’t even touch on the subject of global consumerism because that may be a tad too deep for this sort of post. I just wanted to share my daydreamin’ with you guys. These are the things I’ve personally been craving for and if a certain someone (wink-y wink!) takes notes, I’ll gladly accept their token of affection any time – even if that falls on a cheesy holiday such as Valentine’s Day. My signature scent for years has been the Burberry’s London – such a wonderful jasmine, honeysuckle and tangerine mix! Another one I’ve been aching to purchase is the Burberry Brit as it is the most lavish mix of vanilla, almonds and lime – yummy! I’m planning on finally getting some of those acrylic organizers for my make-up. Maybe I will finally set up a small beauty corner in our bedroom. After frolicking shamelessly with my L’Occitane Arlesienne scented candle I’ve developed a taste in those more expensive scented picks. My next one would be the Neom Tranquility candle. It might be just what I need after a long day or night at work. I have a little list of high-end make-up pieces I intend to purchase over the course of next few months but my top pick would definitely be the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush palette. It’s what beauty dreams are made of! I think a palette or an individual blush would be an awesome present (or treat to self). Same goes with the Guerlain Meteorites Compact. I always wanted to get the original Meteorites powder but I’m not really a fan of beads in make-up. I think that compact form would make this powder more purse-friendly. Another really expensive thing that has high ratings on my wishlist is the Anastasia Contour Kit. Now, this might be the only thing that would put the Kevy Aucoin’s Sculpting Powder to shame. Maybe. Perhaps. Can I have both? While we’re mentioning the man, Kevyn Aucoin Lash Curler might be the only expensive pair of curlers I’d spend my money on. Just imagine how pretty it would look on any vanity with that red pop of color! Finally, a more practical present I’m dreaming of are Nike Roshe Run sneakers. Oh my, these are so divine and if those would not make any run or workout easier – nothing would. I’d also throw in a cute cactus into the mix as I’d love to have one. Oh, and some new PJs (loungewear is something my heart desires as of late). There is a whole lot more on my list but this is at the top of it. Do you have a certain something your heart desires?


Uvijek se osjecam kao podijeljena licnost kada god se priblize praznici ili godisnjice. Sa jedne strane, zaista je lijepo i nema nista lose u simpaticnoj gesti koja nekome moze uljepsati dan. Sa druge strane, mediji su postali eksperti u pretvaranju jedne sitnice vezane za odredjeni dan u nocnu moru. Takodjer mislim da je apsolutna besmislica kupovinom poklona ispravljati situaciju ako nekoga tretirate kao otirac. U tom smislu, mislim da niti jednoj zeni nije potrebno Valentinovo. Necemo se ni doticati teme globalnog konzumerizma posto mislim da bi to moglo biti isuvise ’duboko’ za post kakav sam namijenila za danas. Samo zelim sa vama podijeliti par stvarcica o kojima sanjarim u posljednje vrijeme. Ako odredjena osoba bude primjetila o cemu sanja autorica clanka, veoma rado cu prihvatiti njegov znak paznje u bilo koje doba – pa makar i da se to desi na tako predvidiv dan kakvo je Valentinovo. Moj ’signature scent’ je vec godinama Burberry London – tako je krasna mjesavina jasmina, mandarina i cvijeta orlovi nokti. Jos jedan miris ove kuce koji godinama namjeravam dodati svojoj mirisnoj kolekciji je Burberry Brit. Osvojio me tako lijepom kombinacijom vanilije, badema i limete – krasno i slasno! Sitnica koju planiram nabaviti su neke od onih akrilnih kutija/organizatora u kojima bih spremila kozmetiku koju najcesce koristim. Mozda bi me njihova nabavka inspirisala da napokon stvorim mini beauty kutak u spavacoj sobi. Nakon sto sam maksimalno gustala u L’Occitane Arlesienne svijeci, mislim da sam razvila sklonost ka malo skupljim mirisnim svijecama (koje iznenadjenje!). Slijedeca mirisna svijeca koju bih voljela donijeti kuci je Neom Tranquility mirisna svijeca. Mislim da bi mi jako prijala nakon dugih dana ili noci provedenih na poslu. Imam jedan malecki notes u kojem vodim spisak bas probranih kozmetickih komada viseg cjenovnog ranga kojima se namjeravam pocastiti tokom narednih mjeseci. Pri samom vrhu tog spiska se nalazi Hourglass Ambient Lighting paleta rumenila. Mislim da su upravo od nje satkani moji snovi! Paleta ili pomno odabrano pojedinacno rumenilo bi bili savrsen poklon (samoj sebi mozda?). Istog sam misljenja i kada je Guerlain Meteorites Compact puder u pitanju. Oduvijek sam namjeravala da se njim pocastim ali nisam bas najveci ljubitelj kuglica – barem ne te forme rumenila, pudera itd. Mislim da ce kompaktna verzija biti pun pogodak za mene. Jos jedan skupocjen komad kozmetike za kojim uzdisem je Anastasia Kit za konturiranje. Mislim da je ovo jedina stvar zbog koje bih zaboravila (barem na 5 min.) na Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. Mozda. Postoji sansa. Zar ne mogu dobiti oboje? Kada vec spominjemo doticnog, Kevyn Aucoin uvijac za trepavice je zasigurno jedini uvijac za koji bih izdvojila vise novca. Zar ne bi izgledao prekrasno na kozmetickom stolicu? Napokon, jedan prakticniji poklon koji bi mi usrecio srdasce su Nike Roshe Run tenisice. Oh, tako su prekrasne i ako ove ljepotice ne bi uljepsale i olaksale treninge – mislim da nista ne bi! U ovu listu zelja bih ubacila i mali, slatki kaktus koji bih rado udomila. I nove pidzamice (jer sam opsjednuta pidzamicama u posljednje vrijeme). Toliko toga nisam ni spomenula (liste zelja su uvijek podugacke, zar ne?) ali ovo bi bile najvise zeljene stvarcice. Da li mozda vase srce zeli nesto posebno, nesto za cime vise zatreperi u odnosu na ostale stvari sa vase liste zelja?
