And, I’m off!

Work is done and luckily I won’t have to think about it for the next three weeks.

I mean, I am taking my laptop with me because it’s no vacation if I can’t enjoy my favourite blogs.

But mostly, it’s going to be fun in the sun (well, more like reading in the shade) but you get the idea. 🙂

It’s pretty much the highlight of my year, when I get to relax and unwind, not worry about my calorie intake, exercise regime, work, people relations etc.

I’m taking my Kindle with me, lots of stuff to smell and review (hopefully) and all of my bathing suits which have now reached a critical mass – so I was very economical this year and didn’t buy a single one! And I found a beautiful one!

I do hope weather returns to the sunny heat it’s supposed to be at this time of year, and no more of this autumn vibe.

Pic is mine. 🙂

    Suzanne, I always plan on doing all of those things and in the end, I don't wear half of the things I have with me (but that's normal because women always pack more than they need), don't really swim as much as I'd like to because it does take energy to do it for any prolonged period of time, and I have to admit, I exchange most of my food for beer. 🙂 But hell, it's vacation after all. 🙂

    Thank you very much BF. 🙂 Honestly, I feel so burned out, I wouldn't be much use to anyone at work. I don't think I ever felt a need for a vacation so much.

    Dear Undina, thanks for thinking about my protection. I do take care in the sun, even though I'm not a ntural redehead (dark ash blonde is my true color), I do have quite pale and fair complexion (and I'll be getting a lot of freckles as well), so I never go into the sun without protection. And I can't remain much in the sun either.Those are the best problems I can face. 🙂

    Dear Ines, have a wonderful vacation, sounds like it has come at just the right time. Hope the sun shines lots. I was worried because I sent you a parcel a couple of days ago but I see from your reply to Doc Ely that your boyfriend will be at home a fair bit so hopefully it will get to you OK at some point. BTW nice pic!

    Dear Tara, thank you for the kind words and what a lovely surprise! 🙂 Btw, I love surprises. And yes, I believe next time my boyfriend arrives (although the word is somewhat lacking as we've been together for 9 years), will bring quite a lot of parcels with thim. Many things I was waiting for failed to arrive in time. But this is even better – it will all come here, to Little Fig (Suzanne reminded me that that is what the name would be in English). :)Thank you once more for the lovely surprise.Once I get back I plan on making a revenge package to you. 😉

    Hvala. 🙂 Kaj se tice Toma Forda na moju veliku zalost, nema ga u Zg-u (ja sam bila kupila jedan u Parizu – tamo pak ima svega, eto zasto je tamo super). 😉 Mozes pogledati na online discounterima poput Cheap smells i Escentuals ( tak nekak , ne znam tocno ime Escentualsa, ali mi je u favoritima). Ja nemam problema kad narucujem od njih, a mozda bi mogli imati Ford parfema.Kaj se tice mojih muskih favorita, to je tesko jer ti je moj ukus sarolik a isprobavanje na mom decku me dovelo do zakljucka da nemam pojma kaj se svidja muskima. 🙂 No ako mi kazes kaj ti se inace svidja, mogla bih ti reci kaj mislim da bi ti se jos moglo svidjeti.

    uvijek imam bar 4-5 parfema u opticaju i volim ih stalno mijenjati, ali, Chanelov Bleu mi je nezamjenjiv i njega najviše volim. trenutno još koristim Bang Bang od Marc Jacobsa, D & G the one, YSL L'Hmme, Bvlgari Aquva (zelena bočica) i Bvlagri pour homme soir. zadnje sam potrošio carolina Herrera for Men, Dior Homme Sport i Givenchy (ne znam kak se zvao, ali bila je crveno-bordo pakovanje). volim lakše parfeme, malo citrusa, vetiver, drvo, morske ali ne preslabe, cimet, papar (zeleni), narančinu koru…eto… ako imaš kakav prijedlog javi pa da uzmem, i tako sam ujutro već u italiji pa će bit prilike

    YSL Homme i Nuit de Homme bi mi bili prvi na listi nakon navedenih nota i grupa, ali vidim da si i sam to otkrio.E sad, ne znam gdje u Italiji ćeš biti, ali mislim da bez obzira što će većina ovog što navedem biti niche, a ne baš mainstream, mislim da ćeš lakše naci to u Italiji nego kod nas (mislim da skoro ničeg od onog što slijedi nema tu).Dakle, ako ćeš imati priliku mirisati Hermes parfeme, mislim da bi ti se de Merveilles i Jardin serije mogle dopasti. Meni je Elixir de Merveilles fenomenalan, ali i ostali su super. Jardin du Mediteranee bi mi bio prva preporuka iz Jardin serije.Kaj se ticč vetivera, obavezno moraš probati Guerlain Vetiver i ako naletiš negdje na Le Labo, njihov Vetiver 46 (i sve ostalo kaj ti se imenom dopadne, oni su vrlo dobri).Jedan od mojih favorita ovo ljeto je Jardin du Poete od Eau d'Italie, i Cologne du 68 od Guerlaina. Takoder sam neki dan probala Eau Noir od Dior-a i odličan mi je.E sad prije nego se zabrineš, ja ne vjerujem u podjelu na muške i ženske mirise, tj. puno onih na koje se zalijepim ispadnu više muški, nego ženski. No od ovih koje sam navela, nijedan nije definiran kao ženski, nego su ili muški ili unisex.I zadnja preporuka je za meni jednu od najboljih linija, Serge Lutens, mislim da bi ti se mogao dopasti njihov L'Eau de SL. :)Eto, nadam se da ćeš barem neštp od ovog uspjeti pronaći. Sori kaj nemam više dostupnijih prijedloga, ali u ovom slučaju ćeš barem imati nešto drugačije (i po mom mišljenju vrlo dobro i kvalitetno) od većine. 🙂
