Star Mela Heaven

Last week I bumped into another AWESOME webstore. Expensive, but hey.. I-don't-care! So funny how I keep on finding these hidden treasures... well, dangerous places actually. Star Mela is a brand from the UK with bags, clothing and accessories that will haunt every Boho girls' dreams. Especially the bags I can't resist, it's ridiculous.

Sharing some Star Mela bags heaven today. Aren't they to die for?

Bohemian Spring Inspiration

Finally Spring is here!! Can't wait for the days to become longer and warmer. It started off great in the Netherlands, the weather has been amazing. It's definately my favorite season of the year.

Spring started off great for me. Not only I was asked to be feature in a huge magazine in the United States (will be sharing more about that soon), which will come out in May. This Sunday I also had my first Spring Fashion Show at To Daze concept store with my collection from (see my previous post) The Bohemian Dream. I had a blast so far!

Today I want to start this beautiful Spring with a Bohemian Spring Inspiration post. As some of you might know my obsession with Boho style is ridiculous and out of control! My Bohemian Inspiration Pinboard has over 4000 images at the moment, growing each day. Yesterday I decided to split this board into four seasons... oh my, there's not coming an end to it. I'll share some gorgeous Boho inspiration from my Bohemian Spring Pinboard today, hope you like it!!

Wishing everyone an amazing Spring!

Love,
Lucia

The Bohemian Dream in ToDaze Concept Store

It's official!! My One of a Kind collection is now available at To Daze concept store! THE most exciting thing I've done so far for The Bohemian Dream. I've worked with online retailers before, but this is the first time I'm being represented in a physical store.
I've been working really hard on new designs for the store like crazy for the past months (sorry for my absents favorite bloggies). It was extremely hard not to talk about it, but from today I finally can :). It's so nice to finally have a place for my Dutch customers to come and visit. I've been getting many questions from international customers about a "store front", well here you go! International customers are obviously very welcome! For all of you who can't make it to The Netherlands :P, you can always visit me at The Bohemian Dream Etsy Shop, it's a little easier :D.

Will be catching up with everyone today!

Love,
Lucia

My new business card display, isn't it uber cute?

Benefits of Pure Coconut Oil

I’ve probably said it before, but I am ridiculously addicted to pure coconut oil! I use it for everything. Right now, I have a 350ml pot of pure biological extra virgin coconut cream sitting next to me because I use it so much that I have to keep it with me all the time!! Scientific research on coconut oil has revealed health benefits that affect your entire body, inside and out. Since I learned about the health benefits of using coconut oil, there hasn't been a day I didn't use it. In my diet and on my skin. I absolutely LOVE it! My skin feels so soft and healthy. It's a great alternative for any chemical skincare products that are on the market these days. Don't even start! If you want to learn more about dangerous ingredients in beauty products, you can visit one of my previous posts HERE.

Today a list of reasons why you should use pure coconut oil every day! I'm going to cut back on only the beauty benefits, because there are just too many reasons why you should use it. In addition, don't use the coconut cream which is unfragranced. You want to use something that is 100% natural AND biological of course. Combine it with a healthy lifestyle and you will start noticing a huge difference in your overall health, inside and out, I promise :)!

Lucia

Coconut Oil for Personal Hygiene/Body

1. Age Spots (also known as liver spots) – applying coconut oil directly to the age spot will help it fade.

2. After Shave – coconut oil will help heal your skin after shaving without clogging pores. Great for razor burn!

3. Baldness – apply three times a day to affected area of hair loss. Coconut oil supports cell regeneration.

4. Birth Marks – can be used after a laser removal treatment to aid in healing. Can also be applied after an apple cider vinegar treatment to help support and aid the fading process.

5. Body Scrub – mix coconut oil and sugar together and rub all over! Rinse off and your skin will be super soft! You can add in essential oils if you would like a specific smell.

6. Bruises – applied directly to the bruise, coconut oil enhances the healing process by reducing swelling and redness.

7. Bug Bites – when applied directly to a bug bite, coconut oil can stop the itching and burning sensation as well as hasten the healing process.
