PREPARING FOR SUMMER

GET READY We all have our traditions when it comes about summer, some of us go for some heavy dose of jogging and sport to make those candy-hips gained during winter burn away ( yeah, the advantage of winter is that you can hide your tummy in your cozy sweatshirts which is obviously impossible during summer) or perhaps go to the salarium to get a nice skin glow for the beach. Well, I am not a big sport addict, meaning that I enjoy fitness from time to time but I still prefer laying under the sun like a patatoe, and second I’ve heard solarium was bad for skin. So, I prefer playing around with my jewerly which makes me stay fatty and at the same time I avoids me having skin cancer! Therefore I’m a winner in both cases… If during winter I prefer a more minimalistic style, with almost no jewerly, during summer I take all that I have of bracelets and necklaces out of my drawers. I have always loved playing with bright colours, and shiny accessories. Especially on the beach, with a nice bikini jewerly looks at its best.


Of course I have my own little routines when summer approaches. Here are some of them. As you might have noticed (it’s pretty hard to miss it actually) my skin is very pale and after winter I kind of look like a real zombie. So I always like to use a bit of bronzer and sun glow oils to make my skin look sun kissed. I prefer this option than going to the salarium, tanning creams smell perhaps a bit strange but at least it doesn’t damage your skin. Second, instead of going crazy for musculation I prefer eating more fruits and drinking more water, it’s my own personal after the candy overdose detox. My absolut favourite, is the kiwi. When summer arrives it’s the fruit I get the most addicted to and it’s very good for the skin. Finally, I use a lot of scrubs. If you exfoliate your skin a lot, your skin will tan better and faster and you’ll avoid making stains with your bronzer. These are my little tricks and tips to feel good when it’s time to go for the bathing suit, of course it’s still spring and we have a little while before summer but I always enjoy preparing in advance. What about you guys, what are your tricks?

what brand is that all over gold necklage.. with the little… fish scale thingys ? : )

I love your pics so much!

Summertime has the power to make us suffer and like it.
I’m a slave to grapes, guava juice and the Freemans avocado and clay facemask.
At least my dry skin thrives in this weather.
My life-saving trick is to freeze a bottle of juice and wet-wipes and grab ‘em before you go. They’re defrosted by the time you need them, but still very cold. PERFECTION.

Love this! I’m on the same page as you abou the solarium – so not good for your skin! Fake may smell a bit weird but your skin will thank you later! I love fresh fruit in the summer.. my favourite is watermelon! So yummy! Absolutely loving these photos and the jewellery.. makes me want to go and buy lots of different colours!

Love every single shot of them! You should show in a video how you made that turban! It looks lovely xx

i just love you…

Haha oui c’est dur de perdre des kg, personnellement j’ai beaucoup trop de cuisses et de ventre, mais ma gourmandise me perdra…
Les kiwi c’est booon, mais au bout d’un moment je ressens comme un goût acide fin bref :p
Moi j’essaye juste de marcher un peu plus et de manger un peu moins de féculents, ou parfois même pas manger du tout, ça va plus vite haha.

Tes photos sont magnifiques, as usual, les couleurs de tes accessoires font toute la photo :) Enfin ainsi toi-même et le fait que tu sois si photogénique ;)
Ce que tu as mis en “turban”, c’est le Carré de Soie d’Hermès ?

Your makeup looks stunning! And I really like the nail polishes, perfect summer colours :)

Lovely summer colors! You look gorgeous! :)

Ha ha I prefer laying in the sun more then anything too!

My “summer-routine”? Hmm, I would say pretty similar actually, a ton of fruit and water but I do sin with an occasional solarium visit, just to “jump-start” my tan-glow for the summer ;)

Keep up the good work dear, you guys (meaning you and your boyfriend too) are a true inspiration!

love the necklace!!! :)

I kind of prefer the same things you do – eating fruits (STRAWBERRIES!!!!!) and delicious salads all day long and drinking much water. I can’t eat too heavy food in the summer, like what there’s so much of in the German kitchen, but grilled vegetables or Italian kitchen fits pretty well for me.

Amazing jewelry btw :)

beautiful :)

Oh kritina this is so lovely, how did you twist that scarf into a band :) it’s really cute!

stunning pictures! I do some sports for summer.

You are gorgeous!

GORGEOUS!

You look stunning in these pictures! I love your hairband and your huge collection of jewellery. I love wearing all the bracelets, necklaces, earrings that I have at the same time in the summer as well :) Sometimes I feel like a christmas tree with it but it gives a feeling of happiness, too and that’s very important for summer I think.
I really need to tan my skin a bit, too. I’m feeling just like you do: A zombie woken up from winter sleep ;) xx

Love the gems.

tooooo pretyyy

Beauty kiwi!! lol
