I got this steamer from my little brother for Christmas and I’ve been using it a lot lately. It’s called Lotus Folding Steamer Basket from Joseph Joseph. If you’re into healthy food, I highly recommend you getting one too.
This is a great device for any kitchen! It fits most pans when unfolded, but it’s super easy to store, since it takes no space at all when folded. It has a nice sturdy feel to it and a nice design. I use it to steam vegetables (anything I’d normally boil or pan fry) and fish or meat.
Recently Hannes’ mum has presented me with the most beautiful hydrangea and a bottle of Essie Mezmerised 93. I think this nail polish will compliment my new glitter Lorelei’s Tiara by China Glaze beautifully! Can’t wait to do a two-color manicure with these.
Unfortunately, I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather during this week. I think I’m having a common flu, at least all the classic symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, coughing and headache are there. Due to my pregnancy, there are not really that many medicines I can take to help and improve my state, so I’ve been mostly staying in bed drinking hot lemon tea and reading.
I’m trying to take it as easy as I can in order not to urge the baby to come out. After all, there are supposed to be at least two weeks left before the date, and the last thing I want is to give birth to someone while being ill!
Anyway, one thing that made me really excited is getting a package from Lime Crime. Just the look of their stuff would brighten up anyone’s day! Can’t wait to get better and try out all this gorgeousness, so stay tuned for swatches, looks and reviews!
The other day I got presented with a pair of new earrings with Swarovski crystals. These are Melody Drops earrings by Miranda Konstantinidou for Konplott, which is a pretty famous brand of handmade costume jewelry from Luxembourg.
To be honest, I hadn’t heard about this jewelry brand before, but I did some research, and now Konplott reminds a little of the Danish Pilgrim (which I love). Here are some Pilgrim things from my collection:
Here are the things I got in my GlossyBox for August 2012. I realise I’m a bit slow with this (will post the September box soon, too), but I know many of you buy similar beauty box services in other countries, so I thought it would be fun to share anyway.
- MaxFactor Facefinity all day flawless 3 in 1 foundation (full size).
This is a new foundation by MaxFactor, but unfortunately, this particular shade is way too dark for me. This is the first completely useless product I got in a GlossyBox. However, I don’t even need a new foundation, because I have a super foundation already!
- Jelly Pong Pong lip frosting in Irish Cream Pavlova (full size). Loved this product, will make a post with a swatch soon!
- Gloss Shine Serum by Toni&Guy.
- A lipstick by GlossyBox manufactured by Illamasqua (full size).
- Weleda Citrus Body Lotion. I love to carry small tubes of body lotion in my purse as hand creams.
