Guest Post - Motivational Wallpapers by Chelcey Tate

April 23, 2015


First off, let me introduce myself in an Instagram fashion to keep it short and sweet! Dreamer, photographer, graphic designer, blogger, believer, fiance to Sean, puppy mom to Kodah and big sister to 4 based in Louisville, KY. 

I'm so thrilled that Lorelai has invited me to share with you today! With hand lettering being one of my biggest passions, I thought that it would be fitting to create a few motivating desktop downloads. When I was designing these I was in one of those moods that come around every once in a while where I'm feeling completely uninspired. I couldn't come up with new content for my blog, I was completely stumped on ideas for my print shop, and Instagram had me wishing I was as creative as everyone else who was flowing with ideas that day. 

The truth is that not everyone's life is as glamorous as it may seem on social media. Sure, I may have posted a photo of a new piece that I had been working on, but the photo was actually from 3 days ago when I couldn't get the ideas to stop! I guess the point of this post is to remind you that everyone feels uninspired sometimes. The creativity isn't always flowing freely, and that's OK. I hope that these desktop downloads will bring you an extra dose of inspiration when you're having a day like I was having when these were created. 


 P.S. Does anyone else think of Gilmore Girls every time they stumble upon Lorelai's blog? Even the photo of her in the sidebar reminds me of a Gilmore! No? Just me? Ok, cool.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

April 22, 2015


























This is the easiest drink you can make to start your day! Or actually at any time. If you love fresh fruits and colored iced drinks, you will definitely enjoy this one. I woke up this morning and when I saw these strawberries in the fridge, I thought ok..I'll skip coffee this time. It's not actually my favourite fruit, but combined with other flavors it's awesome! So I also used a banana and some of my favourite liqueur, and prepared a super pink Strawberry Banana Smoothie! Yei! Let's see how!

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup greek yogurt  ||   1 cup strawberries   ||   1 fresh banana, peeled   ||   1 tablespoon Liqueur chocolate (this is just to add some chocolate flavor, you can actually add whatever you want, a ts honey for example)   ||    1 cup Ice cubes

DIRECTIONS:

Put all your smoothie ingredients in a blender and pulse until nice and smooth! Serve into your fancy glasses and enjoy!
Well you can use milk instead of yogurt although I think yogurt will give you better texture, and Its also a good way to eat some, if you are not a big fan of it (just like me!) And again I used the liqueur because I wanted to add some flavor to my smoothie, some people use honey instead, or vanilla, or you know here is a good opportunity to be creative! So have fun preparing it, please share your photos on social media if you try it on your own and tag me so that  I can see what you cook!

Guest Post - Sensuala Daydream Playlist

April 16, 2015


If you ever (for any unexplainable reasons) challenge yourself with a trivia about me, and you get asked “what kinda music does Ada listen to?”, fear not. Because today, with this long-awaited (from my side) guest blog-post you’ll get more than prepared for this hard-hitting question. This playlist for my dearest Lorelai and her readers is full of what I like to call sensual jam. I was never able to clearly favorite any specific music genre but I quickly realized that baby-making music was my thing. Whether it’s straight from the ‘hood, alt rock, disco, experimental electronic or, you name it, it only has to get you in the mood in any way. So, this is for you. You know the drill.


Here is the playlist on youtube

My Favourite Beauty Products

April 6, 2015


Hey friends! Well this is the first time I'm posting about beauty products. I'm not a beauty blogger or an expert of course and I'm not some kind of beauty-products freak!! It literally took me years to convince myself to try any kind of beauty treatment! Though the following products are some of my favourites, that I have tried and I keep using them on a regular basis.

01. Lorven Exotic Oil. (Argan Oil, Monoi de Tahiti Oil, UV filter) This is my favourite hair product! It took me years to finally try a dry-oil product for my hair, but once you use it,you can't go back! I apply it on damp hair, or sometimes on dry hair too if I want to control the frizz. It has uv filter, makes the hair super shiny and soft, and also prevents split ends if you are using heat for styling often. 

02.Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (A salt-infused styling sprayWell this is a product I very recently purchased, but I can safely say it's magic! My hair is curly,though through the years my curls were damaged by heat, stress, health disorders, styling etc so I ended up using curling irons. This spray helped my hair to get back it's natural look. I use it on damp hair, and I let dry, without using any heat. It gives great volume and texture without feeling dry. Mermaid Hair  all year long! (I think it works better on naturally curly / wavy hair.)

03.Korres Body Milk Vanilla, Fressia, Lychee. It simply smells divine! I have really dry skin (especially during the winter) and this body milk (with great rich texture) provides long-lasting hydration, so is just perfect for me!

04.Apivita Shampoo with honey & tea tree (for dry scalp) Yes I have dry scalp and I have tried similar products, but this Apivita Shampoo really helped me control it. It helps hydrate, soothes irritated scalp and controls the itching. You can totally see the difference. I use it all year long.

05. Clinique Roll on  All About Eyes Serum Well I have said it before, dark circles are so loyal to me. there's nothing I can do. You definitely can't get rid of them, but you can use this roll on to make your eyes look and feel more relaxed! You can apply it even with your make up on. It reduces the appearance of dark circles, brightens the eye area and leaves it moisturized. Small tip...keep it in your fridge! It works better that way!

I totally recommend you to use them and please tell me if you have tried them already and what do you think. Also let me know of other similar products you have tried, or if you know any other cool item I have to find about! And at last... stay tuned because guests posts are coming with really cool stuff! The invitation is still open by the way, so if you are interested you can contact me any time! Cheers!
