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 … 😉

  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
  • Dubai still super hot but nothing a weekend at the pool won’t fix! It’s still summer here with 40 degrees Celsius... What’s the weather like where you are?
  • Counting down for our next @travelwithtjd group adventure trip this October! #TravelwithTJD
It feels like ages ago when @dennisstever and I went sailing in the Arctic in May to experience the midnight sun and I remember it was still a little chilly!! I remember having to change into that red dress for the picture because we thought it was a good idea! 😂 
I can guarantee you that I froze! The white sand and the rocks were undeniably cold and Dennis was having a laugh while taking the picture!! You can even see the ripple effect on the water! 
Have you ever ‘froze’ for a picture? 😊

Thank you @dennisstever for the 📷 and @pukkatravels for the love!
