Travel with me: Top 5 - Rhodes City

Rodos je krasen otok, ki bi ga z veseljem še kdaj obiskala. Ogromno je za videt, dogaja se, ima krasne plaže, super je tako za tiste, ki na dopustu želijo samo ležat na plaži kot tudi za avanturiste, ki želijo tudi kaj videt in doživet. Rada bi vam predstavila pet krajev na Rodosu, ki so meni osebno nujni za videt za vse, ki boste kdaj ta krasen grški otok tudi obiskali.
Rhodes is a gorgeous island that I would gladly visit again. It has much to see, a bunch of things are happening, awesome beaches,... It is great for those who just want to lay on the beach on vacation as well as for those that what to see and experience things. I will present you five places on Rhodes that are in my opinion a must see when visiting this gorgeous Greek island.

1. EPTA PIGES (Seven Springs)

Nebesa na zemlji! Narava, malo adrenalina in osvežitev. Kraj, kjer pojejo ptički in se človek res počuti pomirjenega. Največja znamenitost je tunel, dolg 150 metrov, ozek in ni za tiste s klavstrofobijo. Namenjen je povezavi sedmih izvirov z jezerom. Sprehod po tunelu je res nekaj posebnega. Hodi se po mrzli vodi - kakšna brisača zraven ne bo škodila - in ni osvetljeno. Res je neka posebna izkušnja, definitivno prva na mojem seznamu stvari, ki so nujne ob obisku Rodosa! Ko pa k tunelu prištejem še krasno jezero in čudovito naravo... Res, to je treba videt in doživet!
Heaven on Earth! Nature, a bit of adrenalin and refreshment. A place, where the birds sing and you can really relax. The most famous sight is the 150 metres long tunel, very narrow and absolutely not for the claustrophobic people. It was built to connect the seven springs with the lake. Walking down the tunnel really is special. You walk in cold water - bring a towel with you - and the tunnel isn't lit. It really is a special experience, absolutely the first on my list of things that are necessary when visiting Rhodes. when you add to that a gorgeous lake and wonderful nature... Absolutely worth seeing!

2.RHODES CITY

Samo mesto Rodos me je navdušilo z ogromnim številom znamenitosti, krasnimi uličicami in, priznam, velikim številom trgovinic. Všeč mi je, da je nekaj za vsakega, našla sem tako ulice, nabite s trgovinami in ljudmi, kot čisto tihe uličice, kjer je bilo moč videti zgolj kakšno mačko. Nujni ogledi? Zagotovo priporočam obisk obzidja, vendar ne v največji vročini, saj ni sence, hkrati pa prosim, ne pozabit na sončno zaščito in dovolj pijače, krasen sprehod za raziskovalce pa tudi kar nekaj lukenj in jaškov (po katerih se sicer iz logičnih razlogov ne morete sprehajat, jih je pa zanimivo gledat). Priporočam tudi ogled stolpa Roloi. Stolp z uro, kjer je krasen razgled in kjer lahko vidite tudi stari urni mehanizem je krasen začetek ogleda samega mesta. Z nakupom vstopnice vam pripada tudi pijača v gostilnici pod stolpom, kjer si lahko za spomin vzamete tudi kakšno razglednico. Muzejev je v mestu ogromno in verjamem, da vsak lahko najde muzej zase. Definitivno pa priporočam tudi, da se malo izgubite po ulicah, si ogledate ponudbe na stojnicah in poiščete svoj najljubši kotiček v tem krasnem mestu.
The city of Rhodes impressed me with a bunch of attractions, cute little streets and, I must confess, a bunch of stores. I really like the fact there is something for everyone. You can find streets full of people and little stores, as well as quiet little streets where the only living thing is a car. What is a must see? I absolutely recommend the visiting the walls, but don't do it in the middle of the day, there's no shadow there. At the same time I'd like to remind you to not forget sun protection and enought fluids to stay hydrated. A wonderful walk together with a bunch of holes and shafts, which you can't actually climb into but are fun to look at. I'd also recommend a visit to the Roloi clock tower. A clock tower offers a great view and you can also see the odl clock mechanism. It is a great start of they city visit. Together with the ticket purchase you also get a drink in the bar bellow the tower, where you can also take a souvenir - a postcard. There is a bunch of museums in the city and I'm sure anyone can find at least one for themselves. I also have to recommend getting lost in the streets, wandering around the shops and find your favourite place in this beautiful town.

3.ANTHONY QUEEN BAY (Faliraki)

Meni osebni najlepša plaža Rodosa. Malo odmaknjena - do nje se je treba spustit po stopnicah, ki so dokaj strme. Kamnita, z nekaj večjimi skalami, kjer se lahko vsedete in uživate. Kot na vseh plažah, lahko tudi tukaj najamete senčnik in ležalnik, poskrbljeno pa je tudi za stranišče. Nudijo tudi tečaje potapljanja. Voda je modra in resnično čista.
This is my favourite beach of Rhodes. A bit remote - you have to go down some steep stairs to get to it. With peebles and a few bigger rocks where you can sit down and enjoy. Like on all of the beaches you can rent a sun umbrella and deckchairs, the toilet is also provided. You can also book diving lessons. The water is really blue and spotless clean.

4.KALITHEA SPRINGS

Spa, ki me je presenetil z urejenostjo in naravo. Krasna arhitektura, zanimiva okolica, čudovita plaža. Cena za vstop je majhna, ponašajo se pa z resnično udobnimi ležalniki. Če imate željo preživet dan v krasni okolici, na lepi plaži in ob strežbi na udobnih ležalnikih, je to pravo mesto za vas!
Spa that surprised me with its neatness and nature. Lovely architecture, interesting surroundings, wonderful beach. A small fee to enter and they have the most comfortable deckchairs. If you wish to spend the day comfortable in a beautiful scenery and be served all the time, this is the place for you!

5.PRASONISI

Kraj, ki se ponaša z zelo zanimivo znamenitostjo -  plažo, na kateri se stikata dva morji. S
Plaža je resnično nekaj posebnega. Razlika med morjema je dobro vidna in sprehod med njima je nekaj posebnega. Na plaži sicer zelo piha, tako da bodite pozorni tudi na to. Ogromno je surferjev, ljudje spuščajo zmaje, ogromno dogajanja je. Okolica me spominja na puščavo, podoben pesek, rastline, sipine.
A place that has a really interesting attraction - a beach, where two seas collide. 
The beach really is something special. You can actually see the difference between the two seas and walking inbetween is really extraordinary. It is super windy, something to be carefull about. There's a bunch of surfers there, people are flying kites, there's a lot going on. It reminds me of the desert, similar sand, plants and dunes.

Summer Nail art idea


Poletje je čas za pisane nohte in danes sem za vas pripravila kratek vodič, kako same doma ustvarit popolne poletne nohte - pa če so vaši nohti kratki ali dolgi, ne glede na obliko!
It's summer and it's time for colourful nails. I prepared for you a short tutorial on how to make a perfect summer nails at home - weather your nails are short or long, no matter the shape!


Vsako lakiranje nohtov se začne z osnovo - pripravo nohtov. Zame je nepogrešljiv pripomoček steklena pilica, dober podlak in nadlak. Pri meni so na prvem mestu v tej katerogiji izdelki znamke Zoya. Noht je seveda pred lakiranjem potrebno razmastiti, za kar jaz uporabljam Zoya Remover+. Ko sem zadovoljna z njihovo obliko in jih razmastim, pride na vrsto podlak, v mojem primeru Zoya Anchor base coat. Pri tem poskrbim, da že s podlakom "zaprem" noht ob robu. 
Nail polishing starts with base everytime - nail preparation. Essential for me is a good nail file, I use Zoya's crystal one, a good base and a great top coat. The winners in this category are also Zoya's. Before applying nail polish you should prepare you nails, I help myself with Zoya Remover+. When I like their shape and degrease them, it's time for base coat, in my case Zoya Anchor base coat. I am careful to "close" the nail edges with base coat.


Sedaj sledi težji del - lakiranje. Pri tej manikuri je osnova bel noht, za kar sem letos našla popolnost v flaški. Bel lak za nohte, prekriven že v enem sloju, z normalnim nanosom in sprejemljivim časom sušenja. Paese lak za nohte v odtenku 102. Uporabljam ga neprestano in se že bojim dneva, ko mi ga bo zmanjkalo. Zakaj bel lak? Da pridejo barve lepše do izraza in so bolj žive.
Now to the hardest part - polishing. As a base for this many I used white nail polish, for which I was lucky enough to find a perfection in a bottle. White nail polish, fully opaque in one coat, with a normal application and acceptable drying time. Paese nail polish in shade 102. I use it all the time and I'm already fearing the day I will run out of it. Why white base? For colours to really pop out and be more vibrant.


Ko so nohti beli (in suhi) pa sledi še poslikava. Na kup sem zbrala vse neonske, poletne barve lakov, vzela gobico in se lotila ustvarjanja. Nekaj nasvetov:
When nails are white (and dry) there comes the nail art. I collected all my neon, summer, vibrant nail polishes, took the sponge and start creating. A few advices:


  • Pred pričetkom lakiranja zaščiti obnohtno kožico. Moj naj priporoček za ta namen je Born Pretty Store  , ki ga lahko kupiš v njihovi spletni trgovini, trenutno je znižan na samo $2,99, poštnine pa nimajo (uporabiš pa lahko tudi mojo kodo za 10% popust: YXNX31)
  • Protect your cuticles in the start. I use Born Pretty Store, that you can buy at their web site, and it's currently on sale for $2,99, and the shipping is free (you can also use my code for 10% off: YXNX31)

  • Za takšne manikure se uporabljajo različne gobice, od kuhinjskih do tistih za make up. Sama uporabljam kar navadno kuhinjsko gobico, ki jo razrežem. 
  • For this kind of mani a bunch of different sponges can be used from the ones used in the kitchen to make up sponges. I use the ordinary kitchen sponge that I cut appart.



  • Čisto nežno z gobico tapkam po nohtu, malenkost gor in dol, da se barve lepo prelijejo. Takoj nato pa nanesem nadlak, saj se barve tako še lepše prelijejo in mi izgleda lepše. Uporabljam Zoya Armor nadlak.
  • I tap with the sponge on my nails really gently up and down for better colour transition. I use a good drying top coat immediately, since that way the transition is even better and it looks prettier. I use Zoya Armor Top coat.


  • Če pa vseeno obnohtno kožico popackate, pa lahko vse skupaj počistite s pravokotnim ozkim čopičem in acetonom.
  • If you do stain your cuticles, you can clean it up with a rectangular thin brush and aceton.




In to je to. Čudoviti poletni nohti v pol ure. Uporabite lahko katerekoli barve, vsekakor pa priporočam belo osnovo!
And that's that. Gorgeous summer nails in around half an hour. You can use any colour you like but I do recommend white base!

Xoxo, A.

avon-true-perfectly-matte-lipsticks

Štiri šminke, štiri različne barve, štirje čudoviti videzi. Avonove True Perfectly Matte šminke so se mi priljubile v trenutku, ko sem preizkusila prvo. Danes moja zbirka obsega štiri različne odtenke, ki jih uporabljam ob različnih priložnostih. Vse štiri so resnično pigmentirane in se nanašajo z lahkoto. Kot že samo ime pove, imajo vse mat zaključek, h kateremu pa spada tudi dostojna obstojnost. Ustnic mi ne izsušijo in res jih z veseljem uporabljam in vsekakor priporočam nakup! Pa si oglejmo moje odtenke:
Four lipsticks, four different colours, four wonderfull looks. Avon's True Perfectly Matte lipsticks have found their way to my heart the moment I tried the first one. Today my collection consist of four different shades, that I wear on different occasions. All four are truly pigmented and are easily applied. Like the name itself states, they all have matte finish and good staying power. They don't dry out my lips and I happily use them and absolutely recommend purchase! Let's see which shades I have:
