Christmas, travel, Bulgaria

Last Christmas I visited Bulgaria. An underestimated country which holds a haunting beauty. I specifically went to Sofia and Borovets, I have also visited Bansko in the past. I have to say that Borovets is by far my favourite because of its forest and the skiing resort. I wish I had stayed a little bit longer and had more time to observe,feel & enjoy this place. Nevertheless I had a blast with my family in Bulgaria those four days. Here are some photos I took while I was there.

These pictures where took in Sofia. I have a lot more but I already uploaded too many in this post. So, if you wish to see more just visit my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/103004439@N08/ or my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/erawtos/

The rest are from Borovets. Fell in love with this place!

And there's my mom down in the right corner hah

This lake looked like it had escaped from a fairy tale as well as the whole forest.

Our view from the resort in Borovets.

Hey sister! 

Wish I could live in here!

This is the view from the hall in the second floor of the apartment we stayed at. Loved it. If you would like to see the whole apartment and you're interested in visiting comment down below. ♥

music, Christmas


Hello December! Christmas is near, my favorite time of the year. All the shops are decorated and I'm starting to get myself in the mood by lighting candles, lighting up the fireplace and listening to Christmas songs. From my perspective, there is nothing that can offer you the warm and coziness that Christmas Time provides you with. “Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder . In my family we actually have a Christmas-time-tradition; to gather one Christmas night, light up the fireplace, drink hot chocolate, eat and watch old videos of when me and my siblings were younger. Here is my Christmas playlist:

Enjoy the music!

fireplace, reading

What is a better way to read than sit in front of the fireplace in your pajamas? For me there's no better way. That's why yesterday I lit the fireplace , sat in the most comfortable neoclassic armchair in the house and read the "The Glass Menagerie", a memory play. A great piece of art written by Tennessee Williams and narrated by Tom, my favorite character; an inquiring mind that yearns for adventures.

Heres's my favorite quote of Tom in the play:

“Yes, movies! Look at them — All of those glamorous people — having adventures — hogging it all, gobbling the whole thing up! You know what happens? People go to the movies instead of moving! Hollywood characters are supposed to have all the adventures for everybody in America, while everybody in America sits in a dark room and watches them have them! Yes, until there's a war. That's when adventure becomes available to the masses! Everyone's dish, not only Gable's! Then the people in the dark room come out of the dark room to have some adventures themselves — Goody, goody! — It's our turn now, to go to the south Sea Island — to make a safari — to be exotic, far-off! — But I'm not patient. I don't want to wait till then. I'm tired of the movies and I am about to move!”

― Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie

hair, products, beauty

I've always had problems finding satisfying products for my hair. So after trying a lot of hair masks and frizz tamers I finally found the right ones for me. If your hair is frizzy and dry damaged like mine then you should definitely try out the following products:



1. Garnier Fructis Strength & Shine Shampoo


I've tried a lot of anti-dandruff shampoos due to my dandruff problem but all of them did the exact opposite of what they were supposed to do, they worsened it. I was so disappointed that I started trying out a variety of shampoos. The Garnier Fructis shampoo thankfuly worked quite well for me as I noticed improvement to my scalp's dandruff issue. So even though this product is not anti-dandruff it worked out for me just fine.



2. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle for Frizzy Hair


Since my hair is naturally frizzy I've tried out tons of anti-frizz shampoos but I was not satisfied with any of them. Few months ago I came across Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle mask for frizzy hair and I saw that the majority of people recommended it so I decided to try it out. It ended up being my favourite one,it smells like bubblegum,it is extremely cheap & most importantly it combats frizz like a pro.



3. SCHWARZKOPF Gliss Hair Repair


Due to the fact that my hair is frizzy and I couldn't tame it before trying out the Aussie's product above, I used to straighten them a lot. By doing that I damaged them so I went and tried out a few masks. The Gliss Hair Repair worked better for my hair. So If you want a mask for dry damaged hair this could be the one for you since it promises to make your hair smooth,shiny & healthy.



4. Pantene Expert Collection Keratin Repair


For the reason I noted above I started searching for a hair therapy creme. I came across Pantene's Expert Collection Keratin Repair and decided to try it out. From the very first application I loved it, it smells fantastic and gives my hair a smooth & shiny look. It helps the hair's keratin structure and gives your hair a moisturized feel. I usually apply this before straightening my hair & after.



Tell me in the comments below if you tried out any of this products and if you did express your thoughts about it in the comment section down below.
