Few Favourite Things – This MonthLike2
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!

THE REVITALIZING HYDRATING SERUM

When I think serum, I think oily. When La Mer sent me the serum, I was skeptical, just another serum I thought. Today, I am almost through my bottle and the change in my face texture is remarkable. “the healing energies of our Miracle Broth™ Tiny micro-droplets of The Deep Hydration Ferment—with an interactive blend of green, brown and red algae” you can see the difference and it also dries up very quick so you don’t get that sticky and oily feeling and it is perfect for travel lovers!

JO MALONE

Five of the much-loved scented soaps from Jo Malone: Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia, Blackberry & Bay, Red Roses and Pomegranate Noir – wrapped in a unique design that celebrates each fragrance, created by renowned British artist and designer Michael Angove and the perfect gift for anyone and collection at home!

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! You can read about my experience in Grasse too!

ROUGE COCO COLLECTION

I can’t get enough of this one!! Especially Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur which is just perfect for on the go! It conditions my lips, keeps the color on without smudging and lasts for a good period of time! Its my latest addiction! I keep buying more and more of these at the airports!

BEACHGOLD DRESSES

It’s no secret of my love affair with this brand, despite my constant shopping online for bohemian dresses, I keep coming back to this particular one! Beachgold Bali is based in Bali and run by two lovely ladies whom I’ve already made friends with and they are such lovely entrepreneurs! The dresses comes in perfect sizes and material and shipping is made easy.

LEICA CAMERA

There have been TONS of questions on my camera choice. I’ve invested in December 2016 on a Christmas gift to myself and I never ever looked back. The Leica is the first love of my life, (I have many first loves) but this one is so special! The new X series is also the latest one that you must check out for underwater!

    I am the biggest fan of Jo Malone! Real sucker for good toiletries. And I have been meaning to try La Mer for ages (but always end up going back to my usual products), so this serum sounds like the perfect thing to get me started 🙂 Also visiting Bali in 3 weeks, and the Beach Gold outfits look divine … I can sense my husband is not going to like this … 😉

  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
  • It’s been a challenging week and the year is passing way too quick!! I’ve already started planning my summer vacation which I’m so ready for and setting new adventures for winter journeys in the arctic on @travelwithtjd - But, Portugal is always a returning choice for me this summer, especially Madeira Island. 
What are your summer plans?
