💕 LOVELY FEBRUARY: The 5 Languages of Love

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This month, since it’s a special month when we celebrate Valentine’s Day I decided to dedicate whole February to love. Doesn’t matter if you’re in happy relationship or you’re single and proud atm, those four posts will be for everyone. Because who doesn’t like love? ❤

Every week I’ll also give you one love fact about me. Leave your in the comments!

This week I’d like to start with sharing with you the theory of 5 love languages. Some of you probably have heard about it already, but if you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the explanation:

“The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate is a 1995 book by Gary Chapman. It outlines five ways to express and experience love that Chapman calls “love languages”: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service (devotion), and physical touch.”

They say it can really improve the communication in your relationships if you find and understand each other’s love languages (your bae’s, mum’s, dad’s, sister’s brother’s etc).

HERE you can take a quiz and find out your love language! The 5 Love Languages® profile will give you a thorough analysis of your emotional communication preference. It will single out your primary love language, what it means, and how you can use it to connect with your loved one with intimacy and fulfilment. Let’s get to it!

My love language is quality time:

In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.

What’s yours? Let me know in the comments!

Love fact about me: I had a few crushes but I’ve truly fallen in love when I was 23.

Meaningful & Romantic Last Minute Gift For Your SO

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Since Christmas is almost here I wanted to share with you some ideas for presents that mean a world and are super romantic, sweet and fun but actually don’t cost a penny (or could if you wish them to).

Those ideas for gifts are not reserved only for Christmas. It’s perfect for any occasion! Birthday, anniversary etc. Anytime you want to give something meaningful. Or maybe spent days on looking for a perfect gift but couldn’t find it, this one will make anyone happy!

It all started with the idea of a meaningful and romantic present I wanted to give my boyfriend for our first anniversary. It happens to be on 28th of December and after I spent so much money on all Christmas gifts for everyone I wanted to make anniversary gift even more special and give something handmade, straight from the heart.

3641A6EA-BEC7-46F7-BC11-9FF2C52BBE49

What I made is I bought a small Christmas box and 12 little envelopes. One for each month of the year. I took some of my watercolour paper and cut it to size of envelopes. Each card I decorated with abstract watercolour painting.

81025310-0F4A-4A65-8D95-9986BE2F49F1

Inside each card I wrote a love letter or a poem. So with the beginning of each month my boyfriend could enjoy a little love note from me.

Depending on occasion and person you can change absolutely anything. You can decorate the envelope as I did or just pass this step and for example buy colourful paper. You can do it fancy and buy nice box and decorations or make it from what you’re already have at home. You also don’t need a box. You can just put a bow around all the envelopes and it’ll still look great! There’re so many different ways to make this gift, mine is just an example.

Next gift idea is a little box of coupons. For this year’s anniversary I made 4 per one month for my boyfriend to draw. On each of folded cards I wrote different thing I’ll do, for example: breakfast in bed, day I won’t say “no” to you, you choose the movie etc. You can put whatever you have on mind and as many as you wish.

Also you can decorate the box with the bow or just simply put those little cards in a jar. As well as the first one, this gift you can personalise depending on the receiver.

I hope you enjoyed those simple gift ideas! I think they’re pretty romantic and with those coupons you can also spice up your relationship 😉 or bring a little bit more adventure!

 

Merry Christmas! ❤

May Favorites! Fashion & Makeup items

Hello Loves!

This Monday I wanted to share with you my favorites of the past month. My most worn items of clothing and two holy grails of makeup.

May has been a very busy month for me so everyday I was going for something comfortable to wear and very minimal makeup. I just wanted to take a shower, put my hair up, make my face acceptable looking (for me) and just throw on something and be good to go. Past month I wasn’t really in the mood to think about my outfit as I used to spend on it quite a lot of time. Those 5 items helped me to achieve that laid back, sporty but still chick and girly look with no effort at all. And here they are!

My Topshop Denim Jacket was making my every outfit so simple and stylish in the same time. It doesn’t get boring and you could pair it with almost everything! I usually wore it with black leggings, simple t-shirt, my white converse and gold hoop earings.

White converse I wore not just in May but almost everyday since it became a little warmer in Warsaw. They fit perfectly with every outfit through skirts and dresses to pants, leggings and fancy suits. They give that great pop of crisp white and make an outfit looking like you put some effort in picking it.

Brandy Melville pink suede bag it’s the cutest thing ever. Fits a lot of stuff, definitely more than you’d think, and it’s super soft. As the converse shoes it effortlessly brightens up any outfit.

IMG_4379

Nars blush in OrgasmClassic, gorgeous coral – pink shade with golden shimmer. What else do you need? Honestly, in May I just used some bb cream and this blush. It’s all you need for that natural, flushed, glowy look. It also stays on for a very long time.

Granier BB cream in shade Extra light. Every lightest shade of BB cream I had bought (and I bought quite a lot) was too dark for me. It only matched well when I was slightly tanned. At the middle of the month I was out on a hunt for a good bb cream hoping they made better formulas for my complexion. Sometimes I was getting too oily in my T zone wearing it. I saw Garnier BB cream on a shelf in my drugstore and couldn’t believe it! They made extra light shade! The difference in shade of samples between this one and regular light shade was huge! I also never tried Garnier BB cream, even though all the good reviews I’ve read about it, because I was never a fan of the brand itself. I guess now I’m changed woman, because since I got this bb cream I can’t live without it! It’s a tinny tiny still to dark for me, but you cant’s really see it (I’m just obsessed). I asked people and nobody noticed it doesn’t fit perfectly my complexion. I guess it’s a matter of light. It gives me perfect coverage, I usually don’t go for full and prefer more natural finish. It doesn’t leave me matt but slightly glowing. I just need to touch up my nose with powder once through the day and I’m good (after applying it in the morning I don’t use any powder to set it). It’s perfect for summer and I’m super happy I decided to buy it! Such a good product! Although I’m still dreaming about Garnier will make Super Extra Light shade or that I’ll catch some more of that Sun! 😉

Everyday Personal Jewelry

Hello loves! In this post I wanted to share with you some of my jewelry pieces that I love and wear everyday. Honestly – I don’t even take it off! Because of that, they became the accessories that somehow make any outfit more me. All the pieces feel very special and personal since they were given to me by my loved ones. Each of them was a gift for a different occasion which also bring a lot of lovely memories.

I think it’s a great way to personalise your style and everyday outfits in the same time adding a little bit of elegance and shine.

I always pick gold as the main color for my jewelry (sometimes going also for rosegold). With neutral/warm skin undertone personally I feel better in “gold-ish” shades. Silver is perfect if your skin is cold undertoned and gold complements better a warmer complections. Though, in my opinion: Who cares?! Wear what you love and what you feel best in!

LITTLE DIAMOND RING

1

This little ring I was given by my godparents after finishing high school and starting my adult life in Academy of the Fine Arts. I put it on this very day and never took it off! People always ask if it’s an engagement ring (wrong finger!). It was funny for a year… five had past and it’s still favorite joke of any stranger I meet.

ROSEGOLD BAND

7

This precious one I got from my boyfriend last Christmas! I put it on my left hand since I already had the first ring on right one. I love it because it’s really sparkly when the lightning is strong and it has such a sweet, delicate heart detail going all around the side of the band.

GOLDEN NECKLACE

This one I got from my boyfriend a year ago. I was looking for a very delicate and small everyday necklace and one day when I found a perfect one he decided to surprise me.

I hoped you liked this post and maybe found some inspiration to find your own personal piece of jewelry! Or maybe you already have one? Or more than one? Share with me in the comments!
