Lush Olive Brunch Shower Gel Review

Remember my post about Lush’s shower gels in which I’ve promised myself to buy The Olive Brunch and  Flying Fox?

I did get The Olive Brunch, and, in fact, already used it up. I somehow can’t find the photo I took, and since I already threw the bottle away, have to use the stock photo, so please excuse that.

Lush Olive Brunch Shower Gel Review

Lush are so right about  calling their shower gel “Mediterranean” (read sunshine & sun), that is exactly what it is!  A blend of mandarins, bergamot oil, vine leaves and Fair Trade olive oil.

Not only it smells amazing, and rather natural, especially compared to other Lush scents (which I personally love but others often find too strong) but if feels great on the skin.  It is non-drying and

Official Gucci Beauty and Makeup Photos

Remember that Gucci makeup photo preview from WWD that I’ve posted some time ago?

Well, now we get to see a preview from the brand directly. And, let me tell you, it looks so much better.  I was disappointed when I saw the previous photos, the products design looked tacky with the logos overload. However, in real life photos the products look chic and luxurious.

The compact on the photo above looks exactly  as I’ve imagined Gucci makeup would look. Is it

Clean And Lean Diaries. Part 4: Conclusions

Here, as promised, is the last post from my Clean and Lean kick-start experience.

Of course, talking about such things without a photo wouldn’t make any sense. Since posting bikini photos – is not really my style (even on my personal social media account where  only people that I know in real life are my “friends”), here is a photo that will give you a general idea of how I look.

Clean And Lean Diaries Marina Makaup4allIt is not a very recent one [I don't really take photos that often, so couldn't find anything "brand new"], it was taken several months after my holiday plus some fake tan, this is why I, for once, have that golden glow on my skin, ha. But I  did not really  change that much since that time ;)

But back to this particular Clean and Lean experience. Here are the things that I liked and did not like. Plus, some of my plans for the future.

Also, I’d like to mention, that I am just sharing my  experience, and  not trying to convince anyone in how they should live or what they should eat…

I was very happy that so many of you liked Part 1 of my Clean and Lean experience.  And thank you for contacting me on Twitter and via e-mail, but don’t be shy leaving your comments here, as well :)

This time it won’t be so detailed, as there were only four new dishes, that I haven’t featured before.

This week it took less time to prepare everything because I already knew how to cook most dishes, plus I have already bought almost all the ingredients, and organized everything. So I had to make only few grocery shopping trips, to buy some fresh fish or berries. And, yes, I did have free time this week.

At this point I really got used to such schedule, and didn’t miss or crave anything, like in the first week. I love how everything is organized, and I don’t have to worry about anything: what to buy for dinner, where to eat lunch etc.

Unfortunately, I had some major health issues (which I still need to take care of), so I did end up eating an ice cream to cheer myself up, which was cheating, obviously.  Other than that, I enjoyed most of the meals a lot.

Speaking of ice-cream, that was probably the only thing that I really missed. Any other food? Maybe potatoes, as I love baked, roasted or mashed potatoes, mmm.

Here is the meal plan:
