Christmas is one of my favourite season of the year. Especially - when I can celebrate it back home - in Poland with my family. This year - is very special for me, us - as you know I've had baby in January so its going to be Olivier's first Christmas - with his grandparents and great grandparents as well as rest of our families who are still in Poland.
Because I have lots of readers and followers in Poland too - I will be writing my post partially in Polish and English (hope you don't mind:-)
Although its a busy season when it comes to getting everything organized at home,including cleaning, cooking and baking - I alway try to find time for "me" - and there is no better place than Instytut Zdrowia i Urody Kleopatra w Koscianie owned and managed by my dear friend - Beata Suszka who is an expert when it comes to skincare.
Wlasnie dzis zostalam umowilam sie do Instytutu na zabieg pielegnujacy i przygotowujacy moja skore na swieta i Nowy Rok - a Beatka zawsze wie co i jak "bedziemy robily"...
As always-as soon as I've entered the spa - I felt the holiday spirit (love beautiful candles she has on display by Kringle - sprawdzcie koniecznie te marke - piekne zapachy!!!)

Tym razem rozpoczelysmy pielegnacje mojej skory od chlodzacego peelingu (zastosowanie kwasu mlekowego) firmy Environ(jedna z moich ulubionych firm kosmetycznych) - jest to rewelacyjny peeling oparty na wspieraniu fizjologicznych i naturalnych procesow zachodzacych w zdrowej skorze ( a nie-jak niektore peelingi, ktore "zdzieraja naskorek"). 
Dlugotrwale stosowanie peelingu Environ poteguje wzmozona produkcje czynnikow wzrostu, uwalnianych przez komorki do skory. Dzieki temu bezinwazyjnemu zabiegowi skora stake sie grubsza, zdrowsza i wygladzona.
Love this "cool peel" - by Environ - as its fast and great way to achieve beautiful skin because it works deeper in the skin rather than "damaging" the first layer of your skin.

W celu uzyskania dlugotrwalego i maksymalnego efektu - zalecane jest stosowanie produktu z serii "Cool Peel" by Environ  w domu. Jest to unikatowy peeling w kremie ktory pozwala na delikatne i wielokrotne zluszczanie warstwy rogowej naskorka bez powodowania zniszczen na skorze. Dzieki temu skora staje sie gladsza, przebarwienia ulegaja zmniejszeniu a ponadto produkt jest bardzo wydajny wiec starczy nam na dlugi czas.

In the meantime - Monika(who works at the Institute ) did my nails - the place offer wide range of nails services (make sure to check their website) and although I really like seeing gel nails - I've decided to go "natural way" and only painted my nails in beautiful holiday red colour (love Essie nail polishes!!)

The cool peel was the first stage of our skincare journey while I am visiting Poland - stay tuned as we are going to try revolutionary MesoTherm treatment on my face along with CoaXMED - specializing in body treatments using Krio Lipo Ice technology.

Kochani-juz po swietach rozpoczniemy kolejna serie zabiegow na twarz i cialo-testujac rewolucyjny zabieg MesoTherm oraz nowosc firmy CoaXMED specjalizujacy sie w pielegnacji ciala i likwidacji "niechcialnego tluszczyku" :-) (w sam raz na po swietach:-)

Those of you, who have been following my post-baby journey- you know how "hard" I've worked  to get my body&health back on track after having my baby!!

Thanks to Preventous Cosmetic Medicine team - I was able to get professional guidance when it comes to beauty, nutrition and fitness as we've created 6-month plan to meet my goals!!
After first consult with the team - I've been presented with the plan - starting with skincare (once every 2-3 weeks I had a laser treatment session), body care ( every week I've been scheduled for a  Venus Legacy treatment - focusing on the abdominal part of my body ), followed by fitness regime as well as nutrition plan.
The hardest part was sticking to the meal plan and fitness routine when you are first-time mom and working full time (just from 1 month after giving birth)..
But thanks to the support from Preventous team as well as my lovely hubby - I did it:-)

For more information about the clinic or the treatments - please feel free to message me directly or visit Preventous website!!

For those of you who didn't have a chance to hear about Oxford Properties - it's a name that has played an active role in Canada’s major cities since
completing their first development in Edmonton in 1960. 
Today, Oxford Properties has over $20 billion in assets under management across the country compromising 50 million square feet of Canada’s very best office, retail, multi-residential, industrial and hotel real estate. And although I am not involved in real estate industry at all - I absolutely LOVE their holiday campaign!!!

On November 12th, 2015 - Oxford Properties launched the
#MyMrsClaus campaign across 10 of their retail properties in Canada including
Yorkdale, Square One, Upper Canada Mall, Edmonton City Centre, Les Promenades
Gatineau and Galeries de la Capitale.
In this campaign, the company  is asking every unsung hero of the
season (aka Mrs. Claus) who is busy making sure everything is perfect for
everyone else, to treat themselves. So including myself - I was asked to become Mrs Claus as well as spoil myself this holiday season with my own #MyMrsClaus gift :-)

Moreover - from November 12th through December 24th, Oxford Properties will continue to
spread the holiday cheer by surprising random shoppers with Oxford Gift Cards to
help them cross an item off their personal wish list.
 Additionally, when shared via Twitter or Instagram with the #MyMrsClaus, customers will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a $500 Oxford Gift Card.

And....Here is what I got - instead of spoiling myself I've decided to get Samsung Tablet for my parents as we are travelling to Poland for Christmas and because they want to see my baby boy Olivier every day via Facebook - I thought it would be a great tool for them to communicate with my family in Canada...

THANK YOU @oxford_plus and @brillcomm for thoughtful gift:-)

Beautiful Guerlain Bloom of Rose Fall 2015 Collection !!

 I am always very excited when it comes to new seasons approaching - especially in the makeup&beauty world.
And one of my favourite beauty brands - Guerlain - surprised me again with beautiful "Bloom of Rose" Fall 2015 Makeup Collection that gives us a fresh take on Fall beauty with delicious pops of pink combined with a sultry, smoky eyes for a gorgeous autumn look!
In the new collection you will find gorgeous lip glosses, blushes and eye-shadows!!Personally, I love powdery, "blushy" colours - so this season palette is definitely one of my favourite ones!!

Guerlain Bloom of Rose Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss
comes in two shades: Nahema & Candy Hop (love their names:-)

Guerlain Bloom of Rose Lasting Color High Precision Lip Liner - in stunning Orange Hibiscus colour!!! (I would definitely use it also in the Summer - but we definitely need splash of colour during Fall&Winter months!)

Guerlain Bloom of Rose KissKiss Roselip Hydrating & Plumping Tinted Lip Balm comes in 6 different shades (the same names as the blush colours). The white packaging looks fresh ad pure and has the exact same gorgeous design as the classic Kiss Kiss Lipstick that comes in black.

Guerlain Bloom of Rose Rose aux Joues Blush comes in 6 different shades, including Morning Rose, Chic Pink, Pink Party, Crazy Bouquet, Wonder Violette and Pink Me Up (Love this one!)

The new color-revealing blush suppose to create delicate glow with lightweight finish! 

If you are pastel girl - you will love the new Guerlain Bloom of Rose Écrin 4 Couleurs’ Eyeshadow Palette in Les Cendres. Perfect for Fall (also available in Beaugrenelle - blush shadows).

ECCO is one of the few major shoe manufacturers in the world to own and manage every step of the shoemaking process – from leather production through manufacturing in its own factories and all the way to its stores.

Over a week ago I had a pleasure to attend Ecco Media/VIP opening celebrating store's launch at Chinook Centre in Calgary.

Renowned Danish footwear and accessories brand ECCO has opened a
new store in Calgary’s Chinook Centre. Officially opened in mid July and modeled after their
newest design concept, which first appeared in Vancouver, the store in Chinook Centre is the latest addition to the brand’s roster of North American stores.

The design generation known as “Unity Upgrade” serves as a representation of ECCO’s
Scandinavian roots. 
Exemplifying the brands vision of flexibility, lightness, comfort and softness,
the finishes in the 1,300 square foot boutique include leather, oak, stainless steel and slate
stone. Bright white and contrasting grey walls provide a contemporary, timeless and inviting
atmosphere for guests as they peruse the nature-inspired FW15 collection.

Located in the corner centre court of the Chinook Centre, ECCO’s floor to ceiling glass façade showcases a unique suspended window display featuring the season’s top buys. 
A natural slate stone feature wall that includes a brushed steel LED logo and 60” TV compliments the sleek new design and provides a look at the latest seasonal shoe styles and leather product offerings.

 It was great afternoon where we couldn't miss some bubbles and delicious catering as well as thoughtful surprise - everyone from the media list received pair of beautiful white or black Soft 7's - a Fall leather shoe available in a high top, sneaker, slip on and tie on for men
and women. The Soft 7 is made from premium quality leather and ECCO’s unique Comfort Fibre System™. In addition to the Soft 7, designs known for their simplicity, fashionable elegance and timeless style are available in an array of sizes and colours.

 Trying my new, white Soft 7s - I LOVE THEM!

After "shopping"... Happy - of course!

My style for Ecco Media/VIP store opening:-)

 ECCO’s designs, infused with functionality and beauty, provide consumers with reliable, comfortable and beautifully designed shoes for a nature-inspired urban lifestyle.

Additional information on the ECCO Fall / Winter collections can be found at eccocanada.com. 

Thank You ECCO, ECCOCANADA and Brill Communication for inviting me to celebrate another footprint in your shoes history :-)
