A Day In Wrocław

Yesterday I went to Wrocław with my family, for a nice day out. I have to say that it was really chilly and we were hoping for more sunshine, but it only came when we were already going back home.
First of all we went for a boat trip from the city centre to the zoo, where we spent some hours exploring and watching most of the animals. We didn't see everything because the zoo is pretty chaotic in my opinion, it was very busy and we were hungry.
After the zoo we took the boat back to the city centre, went for a stroll around the cute streets and beautiful cathedrals, then we headed back to our car and went to the closest shopping centre to eat.
I had some chinese noodles that were actually pretty tasty and by the time we finished eating, it was already late and we headed back home.

Here are some pictures :)

My OOTD: Shopping Day Out In Town

This morning Eryk and I went to town, where we had some tortillas and then went for a walk. I thought I'd buy a lot but we actually bought something just before going back home.
I will maybe put the new things into a small haul entry if you're interested - just let me know!

Now, over to my outfit. I thought it was fun and pretty cool.

dungaree skirt - River Island
black crop top - Primark
white shirt - Primark
shoes - Vans
satchel - FOSSIL
sunglasses - Love Moschino



And : THE FOOD.


Let me know what you think of this summery outfit and if you want the little haul post too!
Have a nice afternoon and Friday night! I'll be editing and uploading the vlog too!

My Summer Beauty Favourites

Over the last few weeks I've realised I've been using some products more often than others and I wanted to finally write a Favourites post again so let's do this!

The first two products are just so important for me at the moment and I use them every day! Before I start tanning/go into the sun, I use some Piz Buin Tan&Protect Spray all over my body. It also has a bit of sunscreen in case everything should go wrong, even though I never ever got sunburnt in my entire life. The spray smells amazing and it is just my definiton of the smell of summer for me. It also gives my skin a pretty shine and it doesn't look dry.
After tanning I like to take a shower to get rid of the oil excess from the spray and then I use the Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun lotion, which again smells amazing and is cooling and soothing. After tanning I sometimes experience dry patches on my legs so I like to moisturise straight away and as regularly as possible, to keep my tan for longer. Tip: Try to use a body scrub regularly to remove those dry skin bits in order to let the new skin get a tan, plus your tan will look more even!

The next product I've found very useful lately are the Quickies Eyemake-up remover pads. They come in a little pack that contains 30 wet patches. They don't have a nice smell but they work, which is great. I keep them in my bag when I leave the house for so many reasons! Should I feel like taking off my make-up because I'd like to tan, or even for sticky hands after having ice-cream. Since they are so little, they fit in any bag or even in your pockets to be honest.
I also got a lip butter from MUA in a nice purple shade that looks nice and glossy on the lips. It's nonsticky and easy to take off. The only thing that annoys me a bit is the smell because it's not too good ( it basically smells like the lipgloss from the Urban Decay Naked on the Run palette). And another thing that just made me a bit sad right now is that it started melting and I had to put it in the fridge for some hours to try and fix it.

When by the sea I went to a shop and found such temporary tattoos that I decided to get for my cousin. I wasn't too convinced at first to wear them myself but once I tried one of them I thought they are so cool, such a coolk piece of jewelry that you can put on and keep for some days without needing to take care of it and put it on and off. They also last for about a week, which is also cool. So I got myself some of those tattoos myself and will now apply some again. 

The last product for today is the L'biotica BIOVAX hair mask. I got more of those, with different ingredients and so far I've tried this one with honey and cinnamon extracts, almond oil and henna extract, and also a keratin one. However, this turned out to be amazing and I was SO surprised about how soft my hair was after drying it. My hair has a very rough structure, which is not damaged, just genetically like that and this causes it to look more damaged than it actually is, which annoys me a lot! Now, this hair mask hid all the shorter ends that would usually stick out of the rest after drying my hair and my hair was just all frizzy. After that mask it was all sleek and so soft and healthy looking that I definitely need to stock up on those and start using them regularly. Especially now, having my hair cut, I need to make sure it will stay pretty and healthy for longer, no matter if it's because of the sun or the cold.

My OOTD: Pink On Pink

Today my cousin and I went to town in the morning because she had an appointment at the dentist and staright after that I had my appointment at the chiropodist since my nails had to be corrected ( the ones that were ingrowing once and I already had them done back in April).
After one hour of sitting there in pain we went to town for pizza and it actually got really hot by that time and we still went to the shops because my cousin was looking for a dress.
Now I'm at home, sitting on the sofa in front of the TV, trying not to walk because my toes are just SO sore.

But here's what I'm wearing!
light pink vest - Topshop
patterned shorts - Primark
peachy bag - Nica
sandals - Deichmann

selfie with my big one <3 

Here's a picture of my hair at the moment, because it's getting chopped off tomorrow again and I'm pretty sad but I want my healthy hair back.




Hope you're all having a nice evening! I'm gonna sit outside with Eryk but I'm afraid it's still way too hot so I guess this is another excuse for ice cream. ;)

Weekend Impressions - My Summer Holidays

I am pretty busy with looking after the kids and Eryk is also trying to spend time with his family too so it is quite hard for me to take nice blog pictures for let's say outfit posts or similar stuff. I try to take pictures wherever I go though and thought I'd share them with you so you can see what we're up to.

Ice cream with fruits and cream - so good but way too much! :D 

Yesterday we went to a fun fair park called Energylandia - it was pretty cool but I guess it was more exciting for the younger ones. It was really hot and we couldn't wait going back home after about 5 hours of being there.


Noah loved the bubbles and he would pop every single one hahah.

We were also in Auschwitz, the town itself. It was a bit of a weird feeling being so close to the museum/ extermination camp. But I really want to go one day as I think everyone should have a look at that place.


That's pretty much how my weekend looked like. Today we took our bikes and went for a ride and now I'm exhausted!

My OOTD: Rainy Day Outfit + SUMMER VLOG!

One of my latest OOTD was this one, when Eryk and I went for a walk around town in Czaplinek. It was a pretty warm but quite rainy day and we did get wet but we could hide at a waffles shop ( and we also ate of course!) before the worst rain actually came.

shell print vest - H&M
cardigan - H&M
leggings - H&M
flats - Forever21
bag - H&M

I  just realised that I wore quite a lot of H&M!

nail polish - Golden Rose

Like every summer, I started collecting wristbands from everywhere I go, so they are all from local stalls.

And : THE FOOD.

Also, I spent half of the night editing and uploading the vlog and I decided to put all the footage from the time when Eryk left until yesterday into the first summer vlog - so you can check it out HERE! And you better do because it's a pretty cool one!

First Weeks Of Summer 2015

First of all I wanted to say that I am really sorry for not posting anything at all, and also for not uploading vlogs, but since we're on holidays, we don't have proper internet access.
We are currently by the seaside in Poland and we've been here for a week now. I have to say that at first we had beautiful weather and I got a tan quickly, but then the weather changed completely and there's nothing but clouds to see.
I thought that I would share some pictures because I don't really want to write about everything we've done. I prefer watching pictures and I think it is way nicer for you too.


-Kusy Dwór-

My brother turned 6 already and I still can't believe it!

My cousins Oliwia and Natalia and my brother and me on the beach ;)



Tanning on a boat is one of the best things in summer!


My sun allergy giving me weird wrinkles again but at least we have a selfie together once again.

-Drahim Castle, Stare Drawsko-


Me being a tourist for the second time there and still loving it!

<3

Such a cool place to eat at!

I have definitely gained some weight here and I'm not too sure if this is good.


We went to the sea but all we saw was a bad storm and we stayed in the car :( -Kołobrzeg-

-Czaplinek-

Me and my baby enjoying our holidays together :)

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and that you will forgive me the lack of vlogs that I will upload in some days when I'm back home! :)
