Brazilian Bum Bum

Ladies and gents, if you haven’t already heard of this award-winning body cream, I am more than happy to introduce you to it! The Brazilian Bum Bum Cream from Sol de Janeiro (to the left) is severely addictive. The smell, pistachio and salted caramel, is amazing. It is not too heavy, not too light and it lasts. After I’ve applied it, I always find myself smelling my arms throughout the day. I’m obsessed. Besides, I love the natural key ingredients for great moisture (etc.), yet it absorbs very quickly. It sort of feels like soufflé and the skin gets super smooth and pinchable. Ha! I highly recommend it, peeps! I went to buy the travel size today as it may come in handy soon enough, but I already have two big ones as well… How cute and Instagram-friendly is the yellow little pot by the way?

Oh, I also found a new soap. I needed it. Savon de Marseille, merci beaucoup!

The Next BOSS

Another day, another business attire. I’m in love with this silk blouse from Hugo Boss and I wouldn’t mind the rest of the outfit as well. Thanks!

Nose job

I’m back with blogging! So, here I am in my bed in the middle of the day; barely breathing, hardly speaking and merely writing this post. I went to see a doctor this morning. Don’t worry, I didn’t have an operation to change the shape of my nose. Although I’ve been considering it an infinite number of times, I would most certainly never do it as my future children would still get my nose (50/50 obviously). It’s not too bad though, I’ll give myself a break.

I did, however, do something to my nose today. Since I was a kid, I’ve had severe nosebleeds and I finally decided to grab the bull by its horns. I was referred to an Ear, Nose and Throat unit where I “burnt” (cauterised) the bleeding point. Apparently, I’ve got some really big blood vessels in there. No wonder I’ve had my fair share of nosebleeds! My dear grandmother is surely tired of me calling her for support every time it happens. Hence, just in time for her birthday… Nah, just kidding! I mainly did this for myself. I know she can handle it whilst I can’t. I’m done with the blood and the vomiting that occurs and yes, I’ll spare you the deets from here.

Before I go back to Netflix and chill (post-treatment self-care), I’m just going to let you know that I’m fine. Also, I’ll be back in a month for another procedure – the other side of the nose. I can’t wait… My right nostril is stuffed with stuff and I’m not allowed to take it out before bedtime. Great stuff!!!

EVERLANE

As I’ve been hosting conferences since February this year, I’ve started to look for more corporate daily looks; including blazers, shirts etc. I recently found these white loafers from Everlane and I really like them (especially the orange sole). Even though I wouldn’t be allowed to wear these at work (strict dress code), I would love to take them for walks in the city – running errands with class.
