Šoreiz pastāstīšu par jaunu kosmētikas veikalu, kurš pavisam nesen ir ienācia Latvijas tirgū. ⁣
⁣
🌟 Itāļu kosmētikas nams, kas ietilpst skaistumkopšanas industrijā.  @miacosmetics.latvia piedāvā sākot no komsētikas un beidzot ar smaržām, aksesuāriem un ādas kopšanu, ar skaidru redzējumu par vidēji zemām cenām un augstu apkalpošanas līmeni. Šie ir pirmās klases kosmētikas līdzekļi, kas pilnībā ražoti un sertificēti Itālijā. 🇭🇺 ⁣
⁣
🎁 Es dāvanā no @miacosmetics.latvia  saņēmu PR paciņu. 🎁 ⁣
⁣
⚜️ 4Ever Lasting Performance tonālais krēms tonī: porcelain. Tonis man daudz par gaišu un produkta formula nav piemērota manam ādas tipam, tapēc testēšana noritēja tikai uz rokas. Tekstūra šķidra, vidēji sedzoša, matējoša. Nebūs piemērtos sausai ādai, vai ādai ar grumbiņām. Produktam izteikti salds aromāts. ⁣
⁣
⚜️ Beyond Full Coverage konsīleris tonī: honey. Krēmveida tekstūra, vidēja sedzamība. Uzklājot jūtams izteikti salds un spēcīgs aromāts. Pēc brīža produkts fiksējas un kļūst matēts. Neizvēlētos, ja āda ap acīm ir ar grumbiņām vai ļoti plāna. ⁣
⁣
⚜️ Fairy Tale liquid lip tint: mans mīļākais produkts no saņemtajiem. Skaists tonis, ērta lietošana, patīkama nēsāšana un izcili laba noturība. ✅💄 ⁣
⁣
⚜️ Wish Lūpu krāsa tonī Passion. Matēta, velveta efekta lūpu krāsa ar maigu tekstūru. skaisti rudenīgā tonī. Un nevaru nepieminēt, ka iepakojums ir neptātīgi skaists! ✨⁣
⁣
⚜️ Baked eye acu ēna, tonis- elegante! Ceptā tekstūra ļauj produktu izmantot kā sausā, tā arī mitrā veidā. Tonis gaišs, mirdzošs, praktisks. Noteikti vēlēšos sev vēl kādu tonīti. ✨⁣
⁣
⚜️ Bronzeris Terra sun kisses glow. Šis, diemžēl, man būs vis mazāk lietotais/ izmantotais produkts sejai. Pārāk daudz/ lieli sudraboti vizlas spīduma gabaliņi. (uz manas ādas veido netīru toni). Žēl, jo man ļoti patīk ceptie produkti. Tie ir mīksti, viegli klājas, labi pludinās, ir ekonomiski! Bet šis ir piemērotāks lietošanai uz ķermeņa. ⁣
⁣
🌟 Mani Mia makeup ir uzrunājis un es noteikti došos uz veikalu iepazīt visu sortimentu👍🏻✅🌟⁣

🖤🖤🖤 NEW YEAR 🖤🖤🖤 ⁣
⁣
Šodien sācies mans jaunais gads. ✅ Kopš strādāju par pasniedzēju, man jaungada sajūta rodas 1.septembrī, nevis janvārī. Es uzsāku jaunu posmu ar jaunām grupām skolā un tas prasa restartu. Tapēc arī sajūtās man septembrī gribas uzsākt darīt lietas, kas varbūt piemirstas, atliktas, aizstātas! 🙈 Man šķiet, ka sporta klubs pēc manis ir dikti noilgojies, tur gan es varētu atgriezties oktobrī. Bet jau no šodienas, es varu atsākt publicēt meikapa, ādas kopšanas, modes uj citus padomus, ieteikumus, testus, atklājumus un vilšanos. ✅ Vasara man ir pamatīgs darba virpulis, kad brīvais laiks tiek izmantots tikai atpūtai un vasarīgām nodarbēm. ☺️ TU, manu kolosālo sekotāj! Esi tas, kuram šos informatīvos stāstus un ierakstus veidošu. Tapēc, lūdzu, ieraksti komentāros kas Tevi interesē viss vairāk? Mode? Meikaps, stils? Varbūt ir kādi ieteikumj vai komentāri. 👍🏻 Tas ļaus man veidot Tev noderīgus ierakstus un Tev saņemt to, kas Tev interesē! 🥰  Un vēlreiz paldies, ka vasaras karstums un mani pārgājieni pa Latviju Tevi nav aizbiedējuši 😇♥️ ⁣

Sailing around Dodecanese

Posted on Location:

Once a year go someplace you never been before, Dalai Lama

GREECE! April 2018. My first sailing trip since a while. I’ve been sailing in Carrebean ( around 10 years ago) and that was the time when I really fell in love with sailing. One thing is to sail along the river or take a lap in the sea, but the clear blue ocean does the magic 100 times better. My second Sailing experience abroad was in Italy from Sardinia to Sicily. And this time it was Greece- Dodecanese island group. Without any specific plans to visit certain islands, but to enjoy the wind and sail where we can.

Our journey was unpredicted, as we didn’t know how the wind will blow or whether the sea will be calm or stormy. We had a team of 7 people. 2 guys who could sail like pros and 2 guys who did all the rest of the hard work, then 2 girls who was very into helping & me who just wanted to sunbathe and enjoy the sail. 🙂

Our journey looked something like this.

  • Flight Riga- Rhodes ( Air Baltic) 
  • Rhodes – Kos with a ferry- Blue Star Ferries
  • From KOS onwards with a yacht, rented from Archon yachting
  • KOS-KALYMNOS-LEROS-LIPSOI-PATMOS-LEVITHA-KOS
  • Kos- Rhodes with ferry
  • Rhodes- Riga flight home

Kos – is a pretty large island and I we had a stroll through Kos old town on the last evening of our trip when we slipped away from our group & enjoyed a calm and romantic dinner in Italian restaurant 🙂 We eat a very tasty pizza, sitting in the middle of the narrow street. Bottle of white vine was the most expensive thing during this trip ,as Greece is not very expensive place for eating out. Usually one meal for a group of 7 people with starters, house vine was around 120-130 euro.

 “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

Or first island was Kalymnos- a very very diverse island. The central part of the town was very lively, full of people in any age. Eating out, drinking vine or beer & having a long conversations. But we thought that we have to get up on the mountain to see the town from the side, so we got up on our feet early the next morning. First everything looked clean, white houses, blue stripes un the steps that led us closer to the hill and it took just few minutes to get that NARNIA feeling. Stepping through closet doors and entering some other reality. Dirt, odours, stray dogs and cats and empty houses. It looked a bit scary. It was sunday, so everyone was at the churches- they are very religious. But over all this island was worth visiting. Oh, almost forgot- DOLPHINS! They accompanied us for quite a time.

Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.

Next stop Leros. This was the island of contrasts as we sailed to the harbour in Lakki. Very industrial town and on a sunday it was totally empty. Felt a bit strange, as there were no tourists at all, even locals we met just few. But the best thing you ever can do while travelling- ask locals for tips. As a result we found out that all the real life is on the other side of the island. 10 minutes later we got a taxi and took a ride to the best seafood restaurant on the island. It was very lovely to sit on the beach and watch the sunset hit the windmills  on the top of the hill. This island left me with  a feeling I could stay there for a longer time, as I went for a morning run along the coast- so beautiful nature and the place felt so calm.

Next island was the whites of them all- Lipsoi. I felt in love already while approaching – it looked like a painting all clear and polished. I counted around thirty churches as far I could see. Here we had the best dinner during or trip. The owner of restaurant got for us a guitar so we sat there for few hours drinking vine and singing songs. Next day I was looking for a shop, but couldn’t find one. That was so strange- but there was a lovely bakery where we got pastries for everyone. By  the way we were almost by the yacht when we the guy from the bakery caught us with a scooter and brought us 2 more pastries he forgot to put in the bag. It was so, so sweet  of him, I bet we wouldn’t even noticed.


Life is like  sailing. You can use any wind to go in any direction.

Patmos – the most touristic island of these all.  First of all – too many people, I really mean – way too many. Island was full of tourists from many cruise ships that arrives there every day. From the post you can see a very majestic Monastir on the top of the hill and sure it’s where the old town and castle is located. Be aware, if you want to get up there you have quite a few options not only one. Why I say this? Cause taxi drive there is the biggest business. A roundtrip costs 50 euro and that’s it! If you are a group of 5, then 10euros per person is ok, but we were 7. Second option is to rent a scooter, but you need  a valid motorbike driving licence. Third and I believe the best way it to move your body – we found on a map the old road and climbed up to the Monastir. It wasn’t hard at all. The view was magical. And if you ever get to the Patmos- don’t hesitate to go up there and visit Chora ( the capital city) and the castle of Patmos.

By the way Patmos was the only island where we saw shops- local shops with clothing, jewellery and different kind of Greek goods. No modern shops like Zara, Mango or similar on any of these islands. So most of the time there is no temptation to spend money on things you even don’t need. And for me we had the worst dinner on this island- it was plain and quite expensive. Next day we went again for a walk and found a pretty cliff by the sea with stone stairs with access to the sea- we had such a nice swim. So my conclusion to this island would be- it’s beautiful when you’re away from the crowds of tourists and main shopping streets, but the Chora and the castle was very impressive.

 

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

Last island we stepped on was Levitha. From the most touristic island we went straight to the most nomad island on this trip. Levitha is a gem, with only one house where you can go and have a beer or perfectly cooked lamb. This island doesn’t have a port – so there were two options how to get to the land- get on the dingy or swim! So I went for a dive and had so much fun swimming to the shore. Amazing, amazing island and if you ever have a chance to go there- please do!

7 days was not enough, I would say that two weeks in Dodecanese would be perfect to explore it the right way. If you sail around you don’t need hotels, you sleep on the yacht, you can cook on the yacht & you can shower there. Travelling like this is so amazing. Love it so much.

P.s. Our yacht was called FARE NIENTE ,  so I did exactly what was told 🙂 more pictures HERE

Few numbers from our trip:

  • Bus ticket in rhodes 2.60 euro ( Airport to Rhodes centre)
  • Ferry ticket Rhodes to KOS- 49 euro
  • Food expences on the boat- 140 euro form a cabin
  • Dinner 30-40 euro for 2 persons
  • Breakfast 20-25 euro for 2 persons
  • PORT expences for yacht- Kalymons 17 euro, Lakki ir Leros 29 euro, Lipsoi- 25 euro, Patmos- 30 euro, Levitha – 7 euro
  • Shower in ports – 3 euro per person
  • Dinner in Levitha for 7 people 130 euro ( vine & beer included)

TOTAL Expences:  Expenses – 700 euro , Flights – 495 euro, Cabin on a yacht for 7 days 1200 euro + some personal expenses could round up everything to 2600 euro for 2 persons.
