My philosophy for skin care routine is to use an antioxidant treatment or moisturizer regularly. I have been buying an antioxidant moisturiser for years now and have no intention of changing this habit. Our skin is exposed to a lot of toxins, especially if using a lot of makeup, that and antioxidant skin care is crucial.
I got thrilled when I discovered the Vitamin C Antioxidant Treatment by Valenita Skin Care. It was a real treat I got myself that I am very pleased with. The serum is based on many antioxidant ingredients including rosehip oil and green tea. They all have anti wrinkle effect and boost the antioxidant efficiency of the Vitamin C on the skin. Apart from attacking all the toxins on the skin of the face the Vitamin C serum evens the skin tone to boost glow and radiance. It gets rid of dark spots and leaves skin really bright.
The last couple of months have been a total whirlwind! We were away for a whole month visitng friends in London and family in Bulgaria, we moved to a new place and I started a few more freelancing projects, it has all been difficult to juggle. I also had to quickly find someone to look after Maya until she starts back at day care. So it has been a real craziness.
But there is one little person who although is the biggest reason for my crazy life is the one that puts the biggest meaning to it all. My little baby is now 20 months and I am counting those months in disbelief. Has she really grown up so much? And when?
How boring would it be if I talked about a knit clutch yet again?
I am currently on a trip to Europe visiting friends and family across England and Bulgaria and haven’t had much time to write posts. As I had this pattern lined up I thought why not share it now while I am too busy having a rest to actually blog.
So back to my newly finished knitting project.
I love making clutches. They are an easy project yet very enjoyable!
I found this lovely pattern through Pinterest. A great post with clear instructions on how to knit a circle. Very easy and fun to make. I wasn’t sure what I would make out of it but thought I’d give it a try. After I finished the circle I looked at it and thought it would make a pretty and unusual bag, either by folding it in half for a small clutch or knit another one and join two circles together. Well, that is my next project. This time I simply folded the circle, lined with a fabric and used a zip closure.
Since Maya is a big fruit eater I thought I’d do a palette with some of her favourite fruit snacks. This is what we would always have in stock at the house.
Almonds are not part of Maya’s menu just yet but they looked great among all these fruits so I thought they would bring a nice warm colour.
