MY FAVORITES THIS MONTH

Every month, I stock up on new items, some are delivered to my door at home or at work, for me to test and some I found online. So many of the new items I discover, I don’t know what I will do today without some of them and some I’ve learned to let go of. Those products that made it to my list here and the ones I tried and tested this month and some, when it fits, made it into my travel bag! Enjoy couple of my favorite things this month and let me know if there is anything that you fell in love with too during your own research!

ELIE SAAB PERFUME

It is a sparkling fruity flora fragrance with an orange blossom olfactive signature. It opens with a colorful twist-red mandarin, while a fruity addition of orange blossom, jasmine and pomegranate nectar fills the middle and an intense trail of patchouli finishes the scent.

Top scent is mandarin and the middle scent is orange blossom, jasmine, pomegranate nectar.

LES BEIGES – CHANEL 

The latest from Chanel. Les Beiges Healthy Glow foundation that provides a luminous finish. The foundation protects the skin from the usual harsh environment, especially between travels and the outdoors providing the most natural finish and it is not sticky!! The collection comes in with nail polish color stick blush with also a hydrating lip shine for the summer colors!

NUXE

Its formula combines Hyaluronic Acid and an Active Plant-based Complex for sculpting the eye area,  which act on the skin as mentioned below:

  • Natural hyaluronic acid holds water in the skin to moisturize and restore its plumpness, thanks to its exceptional water-retention properties. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced.
  • The Active Plant-based Complex for the Eye Area combats the loss of tone and reduces dark circles and bags.

LE LABO

I’m a huge Le Labo die hard fan ever since my first visit to Grasse and the perfumery. I learned so much on the fermentation of roses, scents and never stopped using the products ever since. I even secretly be happy when I would check into a Fairmont Hotel only to stock up the amenities since Le Labo and Fairmont Hotels are in partnership. My favorite so far Rose 31 but thanks to this box and the new launch in Abu Dhabi of their first store, I have the chance to try out different ones!

LA MER

I can’t get enough of this one!! Enriched with the legendary healing energies of the Concentrated Miracle Broth™ and the potency of the new Concentrated Lifting Ferment, it visibly tightens, firms and refines the face and neck. Day after day, skin looks more uplifted and rejuvenated. I have always been a huge fan of La Mer and this one does not disappoint! Traveling affects your skin in ways one cannot imagine. Ever since I have used the lifting and firming Mask, I have seen changes in my face by the 3rd time.

GLAMGLOW

The limited-edition Sonic Blue GRAVITYMUDTM – which turns metallic blue as it dries – is an out of this world instant Tightening & Firming Treatment that helps face, neck and décolleté feel tighter and more lifted for glam contours. This innovative formula helps skin’s contours feel firmer and look more defined. The mask peels off to leave skin feeling tighter and more lifted for super glam radiant skin.

  • I’m not sure why I love this first picture a lot. It’s one of those things you can’t explain. 
I’ve always looked at rear view mirrors as walking away from something (Not necessarily bad) towards something greater that might or might not work and it’s somewhat comforting. 
I’m someone who loves their own space and comfortable on my own, most of the time at least. 
I’ve had times where things didn’t always go my way instantly but I knew it eventually will fall into place, and, it always does. 
I might have fallen flat on my face sometimes, and have underestimated my own capabilities in some moments... but, I’m more confident of my choices than I was when I first started my journey and what made me even braver, was my willingness to live up to these moments because in the end, it was all worth it.

  • We all crave isolation from time to time to get disconnected from whatever it is that keeps us awake at night. 
To just go, and say nothing and think nothing. 
We hope in the end that whatever you love always loves you back. The sami believes that when you are in nature, you are never afraid of being alone. 
Returning from a ‘letting go’ place such as the wilderness in Finland affects me emotionally and sets me off balance a little, because my happiness was always about following my heart, and so, I try to find my way back from a place of reality that is even far better than my dreams. #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • What an incredible emotional 10 days this has been! I’ve met the funniest, warmest and the most caring, thoughtful people on this @travelwithtjd and it’s so difficult say goodbye. We have created our own reality - pushed boundaries - fell in love with life - and set ourselves free from all judgments on ourselves. I’ll post more on stories and photos as soon as I land back home 💫
Thank you @hertz.uae for having such great service during our trip!
  • On this @travelwithtjd trip, I’m surrounded with people that makes me forget where my phone is, makes me laugh till my stomach hurts, help each other when you can’t feel your hands from the cold and makes my heart so full and filled with love, and we all know how much I love love ☺️. I’m back in Finland, creating our own realities with some of the most incredible people I have ever met. #travelwithtjd
  • From Tromso, to Dubai for a couple of days and now back to Finland for our next @travelwithtjd - I had few friends over at home yesterday for lunch @theitalianwayuae to say goodbye, leaving for almost 13 days but never thought leaving my little puppy was going to be this difficult!
  • On our last @travelwithtjd to Norway, we left @radissonblutromso to set sail in the Arctic in search of the Northern Lights and to experience sailing and sleeping out in the wilderness. 
4 nights and we were faced with an incredible storm, high winds, lots of rain and clouds but it didn’t stop some of us from dancing, fishing and sailing. That’s the real Arctic weather!
It was a mind blowing adventure and testing each one’s capabilities of being comfortable in uncomfortable situations. 
That’s what an adventure is really all about. Especially in the beautiful arctic. ❤️
  • I honestly didn’t know how to caption this story because there is a thousand words I want to say and a thousand reasons not to. 
This image speaks to me and I’ve imagined it and orchestrated in my head a thousand times and @dennisstever helped me capture it perfectly. 
It’s a liberating feeling to be able to stand at the edge with a cape with extreme wind and rain in your face and feel like a superhero. 
We are our own heroes. Not because we are about to change the world....But to change inside of us who struggle to make one small difference in their lives for themselves every day. 
I’m the type of girl who will have tears of joy or sadness running down my face and still insist that everything is fine. My glory isn’t just in the achievements, but in the sacrifices I have made to save myself. This is what this story image represents to me.

  • We are spoon fed with quotes on social media on the fake realm of positivity and sometime too much of it. 
The truth is, why should we avoid difficult situations? Why should we not get heartbroken? 
To be surrounded by ONLY positive people and those who ONLY inspire you is unrealistic and a recipe for not growing or truly finding out who you are. 
Because you will come across people in your life that can suck out the energy out of you and you will only learn to block them and manage your reaction when you have had a share of experiences. 
It takes real courage to stop pretending you have it all together and accept the challenges and grow. 
If we can allow ourselves to face it; we will experience life to its fullest. 
Being human means facing suffering. There is no light without dark, no joy without sadness. 
If we don’t experience all feelings, we have no basis for comparison. So accept the good and the bad without any judgement, know it’s human to feel both. 
Take your time to feel everything, but once you are done, get up, grow, break your own boundaries and not what others expects of you, and motivate yourself by learning to face and appreciating the challenges that comes your way. Too much positivity could also be lethal and not real. It’s how you learn to deal with it. 
At least that’s what I have learned, and I have felt my personal growth during those years. ❤️
  • I’ll always search for those breathless moments where I will no longer be sure if I am dreaming or awake. 
We drove in total 8 hours that day from Tromso to Senja along the coastline. I kept asking @dennisstever to pull over every 2 minutes so I can shoot but luckily he didn’t, otherwise we would have never reached here at sunset. 
Scandinavia is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to and that’s why I keep coming back and leave with a full heart... until it’s time to come back again. 
Follow our @travelwithtjd Journey and be part of our polar journeys. ❤️
  • One of the most liberating feeling in the world is being able to come back here over and over again and feeling so comfortable and happy. I took this yesterday while flying over tromso and although it was just taken with a phone camera, I think it still looks magical. I woke up at 4am today, excited to start the day, getting ready for the team of @travelwithtjd to start arriving and we set sail tomorrow in the Arctic wilderness. #travelwithtjd
  • The heaviness of the moon this month... so I say this: It’s ok if you lose yourself, I’ll be right here to help you find your way back 💫
  • It’s only February and I’ve already started thinking about planning my summer trips! Are you a last minute kind of person or do you plan months in advance like me? 😊
