Colorful Summer by Maisons du Monde

Do you already know Maisons du Monde? It is a french brand, selling furniture and decorations for your home and delighful stuff for your life. I've decided to dedicate some time and fantasy to create my compositions, just to share them with you. 
Today I want to introduce the gorgeous selection of outdoor furnishings they offer for summer, I fell in love with a lot of them, but this is my final composition, I want this summer to be carefree and joyful, so here we go! 

- Floor cushions: big water-resistant cushions, ideal for a relaxing time in the garden, next to the pool or at the beach...ideal for children! They are available in yellow, orange, green, blue and pink, a simply lovely splash of color! 
- Mary metal table and chairs: a classy and coquette solution for young girls and romantic women, also ideal for furnishing a pastry shop! 
- USB fan: such a nice small object to take everywhere with you to refresh your spirit :) I have one of those and I couldn't even imagine it turned to be so powerful in its smallness! 

I must admit I love the creativity that this brand shows from the tiniest things to the biggest furniture. Being a decorator using their stuff would be so funny and a continuous pleasure, you'd never risk to be banal and fall in common places.

Badger's Damascus Rose SPF 16 Face Sunscreen Lotion

I was looking for a mild sunscreen cream as an everyday moisturizer, so surfing on EccoVerde I ran into Badger's Rose Lotion and decided to give it a try. The first impression wasn't that good because the consistency is quite thick and the smelling wasn't a real pleasure for my nose, since it smells like baby ointments, but I eventually got used to it (anyway it is really delicate so I don't think it could bother). 
I've been using it for 3 weeks every morning, so I can give you my impressions.

Jordan Jay Fly


Two weeks ago I was going to the supermarket by foot with my boyfriend when he suddenly told me there was a bird on the side of the street. We immediately realized he fell down from his nest which was built on the top of a 3 meters high pillar. He was scared and nervious, moreover he was trembling. We took an empty box and after several minutes of attempts we managed to catch him and brought him at home. We called the animals' first aid but it took a couple of hours before they finally came. We gave him a blanket and placed him next to a heater, he was finally relaxed and feeling protected, I know that. I stared at him and wondered how such a small creature managed not to die after such a fall, he is a hero :) ...
I eventually gave him a name (I had no clue if it was a male or a female but I was sure he was my little boy!)... he is Jordan J. Fly and I know right now he is already flying high (: 
I was a little disappointed when I called the veterinary clinic and they told me it would have been impossible for them to tell me which one was my little boy because they save tens of birds daily. Never mind, I don't need to be told he has recovered because I saw in his eyes when we greeted that we were gonna meet again. 

Jordan J. Fly, keep on flying high! 
I love you... ;)

#56 Aphorism of the week: Excellence

We are what we repeatedly do.
 Excellence, then, is not an act,
 but a habit.

This summer fight against Cellulite naturally!

Photo by PRWEB

I've been trying two famous natural 'Cellulite-fighters' and I'm gonna share with you my thoughts!  
Just before starting, let me leave you a quick coincise reminder: what really fights against cellulite and water retention is a healthy lifestyle, not just a simple cream! 
Once you've found your way to be healthy and fit, then you might think about getting an 'external treatment' to reduce unaesthetic signs!  
I personally chose an oil based treatment by Khadi (to focus on the massaging part of the job) and a light cream by Aroma-Zone.

ELFavourite Lipsticks!

I lately got two pretty new mineral lipsticks from ELF, since I've always appreciated the quality of them. I made a review long time ago, well my opinion about these is still the same, they have a perfect INCI, they have a gorgeous colour range, the only downside is that they last so little, but that has never been a super problem for me (just keep in mind if you intend to buy them). Ok, I purchased again two reddish shades because I think they best suit my 'face colours', my hair and my personality! :)
I'll leave you with the swatches, but before let me just shortly describe the shades I chose: 
- Rich Raspberry: a plummy rose, with a sheer finish 
- Barely Bitten: a strawberry red with tiny golden orangey particles, also sheer.
