Winner of LUMI DNA Defence Cream

Thank you all for participating in LUMI hemp seed oil beauty products giveaway, I know it was worth trying. 
The lucky new owner of LUMI DNA Defence Cream is Mari, I'll contact you shortly!

I've been using the same cream for about 10 days now and have no complaints. The consistency is thick enough to keep my dry face hydrated all day long.. before that I was used to apply my cream for several times during day. It is said to take at least 4 weeks for bioactive substances like hyaluronic and lactic acid to activate so I will continue using it and let's see what happens :)

pe-earl-fection

I became really fond of my DIY Double pearl Dior earrings (see the tutorial here) and have been wearing them almost every day. 
 made two variations with pearls that remind me of magic fortune telling globes and reflect different colors depending on the light. 




And when I'm already talking about modern take on pearl jewelry I can't leave out the work by a Danish designer Sophie Bille Brahe. likelikelike! And isn't that model just perfect


And more beautiful finds!

LUMI - made in Estonia - natural skincare with hemp seed oil (GIVEAWAY)

I knew I wanted to try out LUMI natural products with hemp seed oil as soon as I saw the beautifully designed packages in stores. Simple and clean design is something that always catches my eye in between of all the other pink and glossy beauty packagings. 

LUMI (means "snow" in Estonian) is an innovation in natural skin care that bases on hemp seed oil
All LUMI creams and lotions contain bioactive substances like hyaluronic and lactic acid, vitamin E and patented moisturizing complex. Therefore -  no parabens, mineral oils or silicones.

The first product I decided to try out from LUMI is a DNA Defence cream, which should possess strong efficacy against DNA damages as daylight and air pollution, also hemp seed oil is a natural UV-protection with SPF of 6. It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin too. (read additional information)

I will be testing the cream for at least 4 weeks, so there won't be any paid hype before :)


In meanwhile I'm giving away one DNA Defence Cream (worth 39€) for one of you to try out
Leave a comment here with your e-mail and I'll draw the winner on Friday, 21 February. Open to international readers. Good luck!

Also, let me know in case you have already tried any of the LUMI products, I'd love to hear about your opinion!

I'm extremely happy that more and more good stuff is made in Estonia, not only in Estonia but even in my hometown Tartu. That is to say that LUMI creams are produced in Tartu Biotechnology Park in co-operation with University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology.

Mise en Dior double pearl earrings - Do-It-Yourself tutorial

I have been lusting over the Dior double earrings (called Mise en Dior) since they came out and. I couldn't resist making my own 3$ version.
I made a pair but I will be probably wearing only one in the left ear and something more simple in the right.

There's a short tutorial in the end of this post.



Inspiration from Dior

Tutorial:

I assure it's the easiest (and maybe cheapest) DIY project ever. The most difficult step is finding plastic pearls that have a hole big enough to fit an earring back.

You need: pearl earrings and matching pearls in bigger size, super glue, a toothpick and rubber earring backs.

1. Press some into the hole of the pearl bead, a toothpick might become handy. 
2. press the rubber earring back into the hole and then leave to dry. So the bigger pearls now become the backs of earrings. 

Of course you don't have to use matching pearls. Options here are endless!

I was inspired by all the grey cashmere sweaters I have and made a matching ear cuff. Grey is the color that probably fits with all of my clothes.

Molami headphones

Something I brought with me from Stockholm: Molami Plica White + Copper headphones. (also available in black + gold)

Molami is a Swedish brand founded in 2011. Molami revolutionized fashion and electronics by becoming the first headphone brand to be designed by women, for women.

I've always used just small crappy earbuds so I can really feel the difference. And white leather + rose-gold details just look so good with everything.
