#fangirl in London: The Sherlock Holmes Museum

Books, Fangirl, London, Travelling

Last October my #fangirl dream came true, as I finally got to visit 221B Baker Street – the home of Sherlock Holmes. Those who know me pretty well can tell that I myself am Sherlock Holmes in a skirt – my deduction is splendid, I can guess almost anything by just one clue, and I can literally find any information about anyone. Not mentioning my big love to Arthur Conan Doyle’s literal canon and Sherlock BBC series (with stunning London scenery, of course)!

Indeed, the world’s most famous address was on my Top to-visit list as I moved to London. So I took the initiative and organised a Sherlock Holmes museum visit for New London Girls just like me.

National Fragrance Week

Makeup & Skincare

Hey, it’s national fragrance week! And I am a big fan of everything that smells nice and I couldn’t go anywhere (even in a grocery store after a milk) without my fragrance on. So here are my top 3 fragrances and EDT:

Eau De Gaga – the one and only, my absolute favorite! It’s already my third bottle, and when I bought my first one I even didn’t try it!! I just took it because it’s from Lady Gaga ahaha such a fan girl. But this one is truly MINE aroma.

“I don’t know the name” by Oriflame – I got this aroma twelve years ago!! Can you imagine it? And it is still absolutely amazing and last very long!

Zara 02 Sweet Vanilla Hackney London – now I don’t only live in Hackney, now I literally smell of Hackney! Sweet and nice, not exactly what I usually like, but very nice for dresses and when in girlish mood!

And what about your favorite fragrance? πŸ˜‰

All black pamper night

Every girl needs a pamper night, especially during this awful weather! We just had six days of snow in London, and I myself felt these unexpected not-Londonish weather conditions on my skin – it’s sooo dried! So, my perfect pamper night set is all black! And, of course, has an obligatory British element – this time, a cute guard on my new face cloths from Tower of London! My perfect pamper night also includes at least an hour of my favorite music, most often something I haven’t heard for ages. I like when my body gets all those goosebumps while listening to old favorites. The sense of perfection and all those “Oh my gosh, how could anyone on Earth write this masterpiece” helps me to reduce stress, regain energy, and inspire me to do more and to want more.

Joik Green Tea and Peppermint Facial Mask

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
