Hi!

I don’t know if you know but tomorrow I am off to Nepal & Bhutan for 9 days. I am super excited, literally cannot wait! As I have limited space in my luggage I can only take the essentials. Here is what I chose to take with me!

Environ RAD SPF 15

Right now it is very warm in Nepal so I will be using stronger SPF but this cream is perfect for Bhutan weather as we will be hiking, flying with helicopters and discovering mountains. You should remember to always wear and SPF, and the one from Environ is great as it is also hydrating and skin friendly. Available for £19.99 from Environ Stockists. 

Environ Focus Care Youth + Tri- Peptide Complex  + Advance Elixir

Did you know that using a serum with a moisturiser increases its effectiveness. Environ makes amazing skincare products, the Environ Focus care helps to hydrate the skin, and targets signs of ageing and hyper pigmentation. It contains three powerful peptide complexes which nourish and brighten the skin and slow down the signs of ageing. In addition it protects the skin from the UV radiation and pollution. The UV radiation is much stronger on planes so you should remember to apply serums as well as SPF when taking a flight too. Find your stockist at IIAA Website.

Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Brightening Eye Serum 

I will try to avoid wearing too much makeup, especially when in Bhutan as the air is incredibly clean. Did you know that smoking is absolutely forbidden there? If you are pale, you will know that dark circles are quite difficult to get rid off. Fortunately I recently discovered the Superfood Brightening Eye Serum which smooths, nourishes and brightens the eye area. Please note you do need to use it at least for a week to see results!  Available for £19.99 from Dr. Botanicals Website.

I chose it for this trip it as I won’t have time to reapply whilst trekking XD. It is a very complex perfume, with multiple layers, I cannot recommend it enough! Available from House OF Fraser, £158.

Happy Spring!

Although the weather doesn’t reflect it yet, we are now in Spring! I am not a huge fan of winter, so when it ends, I come back to life 🙂 I recently went to an amazing launch event hosted by Elemis, where they presented their new Superfood range – which I love!

So what is so special about this new range?

First of all, this superfood range contains a Pre-Biotic which supports the microflora on the skin which helps to balance and maintain the skin’s delicate ecosystem. The range is filled with Supergreen and Supergrain Complexes which are filled with anti-oxidants, omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.

After testing it for the last three weeks, I must say that it works wonders. There are four products in the new range. Keep reading to find out more 🙂

Elemis Superfood Facial Wash 

This face wash is perfect for removing make-up without drying out the skin. The natural Pre-Biotic helps to balance the skin’s microflora, as well as keep it nourished. Massage it gently into the skin, and wash off with lukewarm water for best results. The Facial Wash can be used in the morning and evening. I found that it was a great cleanser, that did not make my skin dry, and it effectively removed make-up, excess oil and dirt. For best results follow up with a toner. Available for £25 from Elemis.

Ingredients: Wheatgrass Extract, Broccoli Seed, Kale Extract, Nettle Extract, Avocado Oil, Organic Pumpkin Seed.

Elemis Superfood Day Cream  

This day cream is deeply hydrating, and gave my skin a healthy glow. I could really feel that my skin stayed hydrated throughout the day, without the need to re-apply the moisturiser. The Superfood cream contains antioxidants, Pro-Biotic and Lactobionic Acid which enhances hydration and brightness. Available for £42 from Elemis.

Ingredients: Goji Berry, Broccoli Seed, Ginger Ferment, Matcha Tea, Daikon Radish, Green Mandarin, Cucumber Salad.

Elemis Superfood Night Cream  

I know many of you will use the same cream for day and night, however it is important to have a special night cream as your skin regenerates during the night time. The fatty acids help to replenish nutrients as well as hydrate the skin and the Pro-Biotic helps to balance the skin’s microflora. I must admit that I was very impressed by this cream as I woke up with a plump and hydrated skin. Available for £46 from Elemis.

Ingredients: Barley, Chia Seed, Quinoa, Black Seed, Flax Seed, Rice Bran

FullSizeRender

Elemis Superfood Facial Oil 

The Superfood Facial Oil is definitely my favourite, containing 9 anti-oxidant and omega rich superfood oils, it provides the skin with all the nutrients it needs. Like all the the other products from the Superfood range, it has a relaxing, herbal scent, perfect for the evening routine. I used this oil in the evenings to keep my skin nourished and glowing, as it provides the extra care your skin needs. Available for £45 from Elemis.

Ingredients: Broccoli Seed Oil, Cucumber Oil, Daikon Radish Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Macadamia Oil, Poppy Seed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Rosehip Oil

I can honestly say that these four products work amazingly together, and my skin felt absolutely wonderful. It was cleansed, nourished and glowing and I would recommend it to anyone!

Ania’s advice:

– Always cleanse your skin

– Use a facial oil, day and night moisturisers

– Plan your summer <3

Happy February!

2018 has been incredibly busy so please accept my apologies for lack of posting. I was in Italy skiing, then thrown back into the world of work, and then I headed over to Dubai for my best friend’s wedding. Have a look at my Instagram @glossy.ania to see what I have been up to! Anyway it is time for my January favourites! This month, I have been loving skincare, fragrances, and makeup and, of course – jewellery! Enjoy!

FullSizeRender-10Twilly d’Hermes

Before Christmas, I attended an in conversation event with Christine Nagel, Hermes’ in-house perfumer, the creator of Twilly. The talk was organised by the Fragrance Foundation and it was an incredible evening. Christine spoke about the world of perfumers, and how powerful a fragrance is nowadays.

Her latest launch was Twilly, an incredible perfume, which I fell in love with and bought a full size bottle. It is an oriental floral scent, featuring the key notes of Tuberose, Sandalwood and Ginger. I already received lots of compliments and would highly recommend it. Available from House of Fraser.

Annie Haak Santeenie Silver Charm Bracelet – Love

My latest discover is a lovely jewellery brand, Annie Haak, you can find beautiful, delicate bracelets which you can collect and mix together. I already have one, but will definitely be back for more 🙂
FullSizeRender-12
I received this lovely candle from a brand called Mini Moderns. It is a lovely online store where you can buy beautiful accessories for your home such as candles, diffusers, cushions and many others. I am a big fan of candles, especially when they have a stunning fragrance. The Darjeeling candle smells like a luxurious tea blend, with strong accents of fig and a bit of spicy white pepper. My guests have complimented the scent and I often light it up during the cold winter evenings. The burning time is 50 hours so it should last you until the end of winter 🙂
FullSizeRender-1
This is my current favourite day cream. Not only it feels and looks luxurious, but it also does an amazing job in hydrating my skin. It has a rich consistency, but gets absorbed into the skin quickly, leaving it feeling plump and looking radiant. The cream has protective and repairing properties, and delays the damaging effects of everyday exposure as well as free radicals. I felt that my skin was more hydrated after I started using the Immunocologie cream, and it reduced any redness as well as puffiness. If you suffer from dry skin and struggle to find a cream that works, you should give this one a try!
FullSizeRender-8
Serum is a very important part of the beauty routine as it helps to nourish the skin and lock-in the moisture. I recently discovered a brand called Previse, which has a wonderful range of skincare products. They are free of fragrance, detergents and petrochemicals, so you don’t need to worry about skin irritation or harmful effects.
I have been using the Previse Ozone Defence Nutrify Serum for the last two weeks, and I was very happy with the results. The serum is oil- free, rich in vitamins B3, B5 and C as well as hyaluronic acid which help to lock-in the moisture, fight oxidative damage and create a protective barrier. I found that the serum was light and easy to apply, and it made my skin glowing and hydrated.
This is my biggest discovery of the month, as this mascara works wonders and only costs £3.30! It made my lashes super voluminous and long, and I received multiple compliments when wearing it. It does not stick the lashes together, but creates a false lash effect. I am loving the packaging too, and would recommend it for sure as it is such a good bargain.

You can never have enough brushes right? I got these two brushes from Avril Organic, and they are so good at applying makeup. The fun brush is amazing for applying highlighter, and helps to get an even finish. The foundation brush is ideal for concealer and is perfect at blending the product in. I also tried a lip pencil in shade Violine, and I found the colour absolutely stunning. Head over to Avril Organic Website to discover a wide range of products which are available at a bargain price point,
FullSizeRender-7
This February, Lypsyl has created the perfect lip balms to help you maintain the perfect pout. Available in Strawberry Pomegranate and Cherry Almond scents, the lip balms help to protect and repair chapped lips. My lips felt very hydrated when using lip balms from Lypsyl thanks to the wonderful ingredients such as aloe vera, shea butter, coconut butter and beeswax. I will be getting these lip balms for my girlfriends instead of flowers this V- Day 🙂

Hi Girl! 
Has your boyfriend been stealing beauty products from you? Well, I have some exiting news for you! Triumph and Disaster a brand initially designed for men, has launched ‘Logic’ tonic designed for both men and women as they know that both of you steal each others products! Logic is something we have all been waiting for,  a Unisex, natural, alcohol- free hazel toner.

About Triumph and Disaster 
The brand comes from New Zealand and was founded by a former international cricketer Dion Nash. As you know, being a sportsman is not easy as you are constantly outside, being exposed to the weather extremes. Dion wanted to create a high quality, natural and beautifully designed cosmetic range, focusing on old fashion values, and rock and roll feel.
Logic Toner 
Logic is the first product from Triumph and Disaster designed for both men and women. It is water based, alcohol-free and can be used as part of your everyday routine. The toner has cleansing, balancing and hydrating properties. After using this toner for the last couple of weeks, I noticed that my skin was hydrated and properly cleansed. Although, I don’t have a lot of noticeable pores, I definitely saw an improvement in my skin as it looked clearer and smoother thanks to the Mamaku Extract and Tasmaninan Pepper which have soothing and calming properties.
If you suffer from acne, this toner is also suitable for your skin as it contains Witch Hazel and Tasmanian Pepper which calm your skin and prevent acne. I really liked this toner, and I love the simple, and elegant design of the bottle. Minimalism is what I always look for in products, and Logic not only with its ingredients but also with the design, definitely exceeds my expectations. Available from Triumph And Disaster’s website, for £26.

Gameface moisturiser

I am always very excited when trying a new moisturiser, which is why you would often see me looking at my brother’s beauty shelves and trying their strangely coloured products. This time however, I cheated a little as I tried this moisturiser during m facial with Triump and Disaster and my skin felt absolutely amazing.
This moisturiser is quite light and gets absorbed in quickly. My skin felt hydrated, had a better elasticity and looked radiant. It is very gentle on the skin and it calmed any inflammations without drying my skin. The scent is perfect for the mornings as it is a mix of Patchouli, Cedar, Geranium, Lavander and Sandalwood. The Gameface moisturiser is available from Triumph And Disaster website, for £36.
Ania’s advice:
1. Don’t skip the toner
2. Moisturise your skin twice a day

3. Drink Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hi Stunning!
I recently discovered this brand called Mad Beauty where you can find the cutest beauty products and accessories such as Cereal themed lip balms, fruit scented hand sanitisers, animal hand bands and much more. Mad Beauty is a brand that makes cosmetics so much fun and that is why I really liked it!
MAD Beauty Animal Head Band – Panda
This is my favourite accessory from Mad Beauty. I never owned this kind of plush head band and I am so glad that I discovered it as it makes my beauty routine so much easier. The headband is very soft and it doesn’t pull your hair but it does keep it off the face.

I use it in the mornings and evening when cleansing my face or even when I come home after a long day at work and want to keep the hair off my face. This is really worth buying as it just makes life so much easier! Also available in other styles such as tiger and dog from Mad Beauty Website, £2.99. 



MAD Beauty Ultimate Handy Set 
This name of this set exactly explains its purpose – it is very handy. I like having it in my bag as it contains all hand essentials such as tissues, mini wet wipes, hand sanitiser and a hand cream.  It is very practical especially when travelling, or even when I am just out with my friends. 
I adore the scent, as it really reminds me of my childhood sweets. The hand sanitiser and the hand cream really do smell gorgeous. The sanitiser has a security clasp at the top so you can be sure that it won’t open inside your bag and spill out. Great set! Available from Mad Beauty Website, £8.99

MAD Beauty Eye Mask – Cucumber 
Mad Beauty even makes the face masks fun! This cucumber mask looks makes you look like you just came back from a Masquerade ball. I liked it a lot as it has a cooling effect on the eye area and makes you look fresh and stunning! Available from Mad Beauty Website, £2.99. 
MAD Beauty Face Mask  
This mask as a printed dog face on it which made me laugh whenever I looked at myself in the mirror! It looks hilarious and really changes the sheet mask experience. The masks has a lovely coconut smell, and it has nourishing properties. My skin felt hydrated and glowing so I look forward to trying the Panda and Tiger styles too. Available from Mad Beauty Website, £2.99

Ania’s advice:
1. Check out MAD beauty
2.  Get some fun beauty products
3. Find your perfect Panda 🙂

 Hi Gorgeous!
If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I spent two amazing weeks in Cancun and Mexico. It was such a fantastic getaway from London, and Cancun is a paradise which I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to. During my days at the beach, pool or sightseeing I always had with me my bag with all the beach essentials. Keep on reading to find it out more!

Facial Cleansing Wipes
Face wipes are a must have at the beach and at the pool and I always keep them handy whenever I need to refresh my face. You can also use it on the body or to clean your hands. There are 60 in a pack and the packaging is sealed so they didn’t dry out throughout my holiday. I got these at TK Maxx for £3.99.
Palmers Eventone Suncare SPF50
I always use SPF50 as I have a vary fair skin, and especially at the beginning of your holiday it is important that your skin gets used to being exposed for so long to the sun rays. This sunscreen is wonderful as it protects your skin even in the water as it is waterproof. In addition it does smell amazing and it is moisturising. I liked it as it didn’t leave white residue and it was absorbed into my skin fairly quickly. Available from Superdrug for £9.99.
Macadamia Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil 
What we often forget about when going to the beach is our hair which can get easily damaged  by the sea salt, wind and sun rays. The Macadamia Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil helps to protect the hair, and colour, nourishes it and gives it a stunning glow. It consists of all the essential ingredients to hydrate and protect the hair such as Macadamia Oil, Argan oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower Seed Extract and UV absorbers.
I really love the fragrance of this product which is coconut cream and it stays on the hair throughout the day. For best results spray evenly on the hair every two hours and your hair will look as stunning as your tanned skin when you come back from holiday! Available from Feelunique, for £21. 


Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF60

This is a spray sunscreen which I use on my hair to protect the scalp from burning which happened to me too many times. It works amazingly as it is in a pressured container and doesn’t get exposed to sun rays. I got this in the USA so you might be able to get it on Amazon!

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Facial Suncare SPF50+

I try to keep my makeup minimal when I am at the beach to let my skin rest and recover. This BB Cream evens out the skin tone and cover any imperfection so that you don’t feel completely make-up free. It has an SPF 50 so you can use it instead of your sunscreen and it does a great job. During the two weeks in Mexico, my skin was protected and it didn’t burn once. I will continue using it in London even though the sun is not as strong here, but it is crucial to protect your face to minimise the sun damage. Available from Boots, for £15.


Got2b Oil-licious Styling Oil 
As mentioned in my festival essentials, this is perfect for smoothing down the hair and taming the frizz. I always used it after leaving the pool or the sea and when my hair was drying to give additional shine and hydration. Available from Superdrug, for £3. 
Cuticara Original Hand Gel
I always take with me an antibacterial hand gel to the beach or to the pool just to keep my hands clean and use it whenever I need. I love the one from Cuticara, as it has a lovely cucumber smell. Available from Superdrug, for £1.
Chapstick Flava Craze Watermelon and Quickies Deodorant Wipes 
I got these from the festival pack from chemist.co.uk for £7.99. The chopstick is perfect for the beach as it has an SPF15 and hydrates the lips throughout the day. I cannot even say how useful were the quickies deodorant wipes! They are super easy to use and take so little space that I took them with me everywhere and used them whenever I needed. Super useful for the beach. 


Ania’s advice:

1. Protect your skin
2. Protect your hair 
3. Enjoy your summer!
