Current Lifestyle Books Wish List

I love seeing what my friends are reading, so I thought I’d share the books which are on my wish list as well. But not just any books but the ones which are at least somehow related to the topic of the website.  I don’t read popular literature or “chick (the word I actually hate) lit” so not sure how interesting my usual picks would be.

Here we go:

The Beauty/Style

  1. Perfumes: The Guide 2018  by Turin and Sanchez (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve actually had this book but lost it while moving somehow so I have to pick up a new copy, very unimpressed about it. It’s a must for anyone who wants to understand perfume better.
  2.  In Paris: 20 Women on Life in the City of Light Book  (Amazon and Amazon UK). This looks like a beautiful and inspiring book to have. While I am not into all the “influencer”  thing, I am hoping to enjoy it.

Cook Books:

What Is The Best Treatment For Your Nails?

vitamins

Hello, ladies!

Today I would love to share with you an advice which I got from my manicurist who has amazing nails. The thing is that I’d love to have  long nails (my own) but  they always chip and most of the time they are so weak and damaged.

It seems that I’ve tried almost everything: lemon juice, sea salt, different creams and gels for nails, calcium polish , beauty vitamins. It helped but only for some time.

So I was told  to try professional  treatment for nails with vitamins A and E.   I went to a local drugstore and got a bottle of such treatment for nails with A and E vitamins. We will see about the results! I  already used it today for the first time.

And what do you do to have strong  & long nails? How do you take care of them? Please do share your nail care routine.

I hope you all are having a great day!

Origins peace of mind

Peace of Mind On-the-spot relief

When the world closes in on you and your head feels a size too small, apply just two dabs of Origins mind-clearing formula on the back of your neck, temples and earlobes. You’ll feel a tingling sensation as pressure, tension and tightness begin to feel as if they melt away.

How to use: Place two small dabs on fingertips. Take a deep breath to experience Peace of Mind’s stress relieving aromas. Massage into the back of neck, earlobes, and temples (closer to the hairline than to eyes).

About My Vacation: Cleopatra SPA Experience

This is the second post about my vacation and this time it’s about SPA (First post about food you can check out here). I heard that Cleopatra is a very famous treatment is some Arabic countries and mostly in Egypt so I wanted to give it a try. So what is in the programm:

  1. Sauna
  2. Steam room – several minutes, then Coconut peeling
  3. Steam room
  4. Face mask
  5. Jacuzzi
  6. Thai massage with oils

Sounds great, right? But before I tell you my impression here is some general information about Cleopatra (known also for all the beauty rituals that she loved) for you.

(Monica Bellucci as Cleopatra)

Cleopatra was regarded as a great beauty, even in the ancient world. In his Life of Antony, Plutarch remarks that “judging by the proofs which she had had before this of the effect of her beauty upon Caius Caesar and Gnaeus the son of Pompey, she had hopes that she would more easily bring Antony to her feet. For Caesar and Pompey had known her when she was still a girl and inexperienced in affairs, but she was going to visit Antony at the very time when women have the most brilliant beauty”. Later in the work, however, Plutarch indicates that “her beauty, as we are told, was in itself not altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her.” Rather, what ultimately made Cleopatra attractive were her wit, charm and “sweetness in the tones of her voice.”

Cassius Dio also spoke of Cleopatra’s allure: “For she was a woman of surpassing beauty, and at that time, when she was in the prime of her youth, she was most striking; she also possessed a most charming voice and knowledge of how to make herself agreeable to every one. Being brilliant to look upon and to listen to, with the power to subjugate every one, even a love-sated man already past his prime, she thought that it would be in keeping with her role to meet Caesar, and she reposed in her beauty all her claims to the throne.”

The source of all information above is Wikipedia. You can read the rest of this article there. And  you can also check out different actresses playing Cleopatra.

So this is my impression
