July favourites

Hi darlings, it's the end of the month & here's a new favourites post for you! This one is pretty much geared to my summer vacation, colourful, bohemian and comfy!

1. Lately I want a pink bikini! Don't know, but I like the colour. This one is from H&M and they also have it in red, which I like, too! Maybe I will pick one of them for my beach days in Greece. Or maybe both ( :

2. Another pink thing. This maxi skirt from Mango looks so nice! I can imagine wearing it on hot days combined with a simple white top. It looks flowy and airy and uncomplicated to wear.

3. I am in need of a new face wash. I discovered Pacifica, they have such cool stuff! Vegan and cruelty free. I already tried the quinoa, calendula and aloe gentle face wash and I loved it. For summer days I wanna try this sea foam face wash with coconut water & sea algae complex. Good to wash off sand, sweat and sunscreen.

4. A pair of silver earrings. I like these indian ones by A la, a shop from the Netherlands. They're small and won't disturb on a beach day.

5. Seriously? I was looking for rope sandles for like...years! Now they pop up everywhere on Instagram, so I decided to get myself a pair for my vacation. They're comfortable and best of all: Vegan! They go with every piece in my wardrobe, so I think for summer I can't make anything wrong with these fellas!

Spa Night in the bathroom

Hi wildflowers,
admittedly I am quite stressed at the moment. I cannot wait for my summer vacations to come in 2 weeks.
I guess we're all wrapped up in work, tasks and life situations that make us feel burned out and just tired. Personally when I feel like this I need to stop and give myself some etxtra care to re-center my body, mind and soul.

Here you can read about my pampering rituals when feeling kinda down and stressed-out.

Face Mask

As we all know, our skin reflects the stress that we have. So during stressful times we should give our skin a special treat with a face mask.

Clay is known for it's healing properties, it draws toxins out, makes the skin softer, clearer and fresher and reduces skin irritations.

I mix the clay together in a glass bowl with 2 TBSP of water (or here Evening Primerose oil), you can also use rose water instead, optional you can add 1-2 drops of essential oil of your choice, I used Lavender. Then gently apply on your face.

Breathe in deeply and start making a big mug of tea while your bath is running in the tube.


A big cup of tea can always help to soothe us, it's warming us from the inside and makes us feel safe.

I am using fresh, loose tea for my tea rituals, the one on the photo above is by Altar & Leaf Apotheca.
And I believe that wild picked organic tea (flowers and herbs) is better than drinking conventional, flavoured tea from the supermarket. If I have no loose tea at home, my favourite (supermarket) brands are Yogi Tea and Pukka teas. You can also get them in the organic store and these are beneficial, too!


A happy place where you feel comfortable in is very important. In a tidy and cleaned up place you will feel much better than in a messy one.

Another good thing to calm down is to burn insence, spray some natural room spray in your appartment, use aromatherapy (find out what scents do good for you!), light candles, crystal lamps...the list is long. Grab a good book, listen to music or podcasts, create or do whatever calmes your soul and mind.

Summer things

I can't believe that summer's on it's zenith now, time flew by so quickly. I still can remember the beginning of the year where I was longing for warmer days to come. Now that they are here, I feel like I can't savour them that much. There's always something to do, I really should dive into these beautiful days more...
  I took some trips to the city, and here are some things I recently bought:
 There's this new books (which I already finished) "the journey of the elelphant god", I really enjoyed it. As the cover maybe reveals, it's about India. Better said about a woman who is searching her indian roots and meets her family. I found it really emotional and took me right into the colourful brimming streets of India.

Other things that I've found are a rose spray perfume from paris, a little ganesha figure from a street stand in Paris, Patchouli incense, a wooden OM sign and some dried eucalyptus to burn. Only little things but all are treasures in their own special way.

In nature

 Hello lovely people ♥

It's finally july, soon my vacation will start. Bizarrely I am already thinking about autumn...

This summer is strange I find, one day it's super hot and it feels like real summer, the other week is rainy and cold. For me there's no real summer feeling here yet.

Here are some photos from this early summer, when the fields were full of chamomile and margarites.
