Whew,.. fashion weeks are over but I still need time to look through all the photos and find my favorites. I'll start with my recollections from New York - all I remember from the Proenza Schouler show are the nice black and white graphic patterns.
These came into my mind as soon as I saw a special Loreal Tweed Top Coat nailpolish which leaves a black&white texture on nails.
It sounded like really easy way how to adapt the Proenza look without waiting until fall2014.

Besides tidying up my room and putting together moodboards for the new collections this weekend, I also experimented with beauty rituals I usually never have time for.
I was eager to try out facial scrub set from French organic cosmetics brand Alorée Chlorocosmetics. Such a name because they are the first to use chlorophyll, a tiny green molecule, in beauty products.
The kit comes with small dish with a spatula, a small jar of exfoliating seeds and sample of radiant mask.
Alorée Detox Facial Scrub Kit (olemas nt Kaubamajas ja allorganic.ee)
The exfoliating mix is made of olive kernel powder and Alfalfa seeds. That sounded intriguing to me as before I've seen only sugar, salt, coffee grounds and such things used as scrubs.
Probably the fact that you can do and mix something by yourself, makes the whole process more exciting… or I was just too bored before that..
Anyway you have to mix the seeds with a little amount of facial mask or face cleansing gel. This time I used the sample of Radiant Mask that came with the kit.
It seems to me that the amount of seeds will last for at least 10-15 uses.
I've been using the same cream for about 10 days now and have no complaints. The consistency is thick enough to keep my dry face hydrated all day long.. before that I was used to apply my cream for several times during day. It is said to take at least 4 weeks for bioactive substances like hyaluronic and lactic acid to activate so I will continue using it and let's see what happens :)

I knew I wanted to try outLUMI natural products with hemp seed oil as soon as I saw the beautifully designed packages in stores. Simple and clean design is something that always catches my eye in between of all the other pink and glossy beauty packagings.
LUMI (means "snow" in Estonian) is an innovation in natural skin care that bases on hemp seed oil.
All LUMI creams and lotions contain bioactive substances like hyaluronic and lactic acid, vitamin E and patented moisturizing complex. Therefore - no parabens, mineral oils or silicones.
The first product I decided to try out from LUMI is a DNA Defence cream, which should possess strong efficacy against DNA damages as daylight and air pollution, also hemp seed oil is a natural UV-protection with SPF of 6. It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin too. (read additional information)
I will be testing the cream for at least 4 weeks, so there won't be any paid hype before :)
Leave a comment here with your e-mail and I'll draw the winner on Friday, 21 February. Open to international readers. Good luck!
Also, let me know in case you have already tried any of the LUMI products, I'd love to hear about your opinion!
I'm extremely happy that more and more good stuff is made in Estonia, not only in Estonia but even in my hometown Tartu. That is to say that LUMI creams are produced in Tartu Biotechnology Park in co-operation with University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology.
