ORCA - a cruelty-free beauty shop


While visiting the capital of Slovenia Ljubljana; a city, which I love for a lot of adorable coffee shops and a growing number of restaurants with cruelty-free options, I was pleasantly surprised to find yet another beautiful place the city has to offer. This time I fell in love with the cruelty-free shop Orca, which offers amazing beauty products.

EcoTools Makeup Brushes: FRESH & FLAWLESS


After purchasing my first set of EcoTools brushes I fell in love with the brand and its story and obviously in the products themselves. It has been a few months since I got the six piece starter kit and I am still using it all the time (click HERE to view my oldies goldies post about my EcoTools love). I came to the conclusion that it was about time to get a new set. Whenever I walked into Boots, I was welcomed by this beautiful EcoTools Fresh & Flawless five piece complexion set. I managed to leave the shop empty handed several times, but I eventually gave up and bought the set.

Social media can be silly :)

Let me start this by saying I am not very good with technology. I know the basic stuff, but as soon as you put me in front of a code (or anything that looks similar to a code) my brains shut down. That's why when some of you weren't receiving emails that you signed up for I had no idea what to do. Luckily, that problem has been solved. I do not know how exactly I solved it, to be honest, but I clicked a few things (in a DeeDee from Dexter's laboratory style: Uuu what does this button doooo?) and TADA - emails are back on track! 

Because of the fact that a lot of you can't see my posts on social media (I have noticed that only around 5 % or less of you who liked the Facebook page are shown Aniqa Dreams posts in your Facebook Home area) I decided to invite you to follow me on Bloglovin. If you are not interested, that is completely fine, just ignore this post and seize the day :) In case you are one of those people who talked to me about this problem; you can click **HERE** and follow. 

What is Bloglovin?

It is a cool platform where you can follow all your favourite blogs and don't miss new posts. I am a bit obsessed, to be honest :P If you want to check it out click HERE or HERE.

Thank you so much for your support!

Monday Munchies


My boyfriend and I have been traveling for about a week now and we had a great time in Ljubljana, which is the capital of Slovenia - a tiny country in Europe. I was planning on sharing some photos of the capital with you, but then I realised the majority of the photos included food. I then had to admit to myself that I too became one of those people who take photos of their feast before they eat it. So here I am a bit ashamed, however, still determined to share my Monday Munchies with you. Hope you like!

Monday Munchies: Lunch at Tibits


Before we went abroad my boyfriend and I decided to go to one of our favourite vegetarian restaurants in central London - Tibits. With plenty of options for vegans the restaurant welcomes all types of guests; from veggies to omnivores who like delicious food. It might surprise you, but here is where I tried fried onion rings for the first time a few month ago. Ever since that I always make sure I put at least a few onion rings on my plate, because they are delicious! I am also a big fan of avocado salad in Tibits! I have cravings just by looking at these photos.

DIY: Cute Natural and Non-Toxic Candles


Any candle fans out there? Please raise your hands. I am! Specially in the holiday season; they are everywhere calling us from the shelves with their lovely scents. I forbid myself to buy them, because I really wanted to make them myself. I am really glad I stuck to my decision, because I love the final result! They are very simple to make (although you do have to be careful when dealing with the hot wax) and decorating them was a lot of fun. I made them with my boyfriend and it almost felt like Christmas is already here. Maybe because we got carried away with Christmasy decorations. I have no regrets! 

Check out my video below to see how you can make these lovelies as well:)

Monday Munchies: Pana Chocolate



Oh, how I love these chocolates! I was standing in front of the shelf in Planet Organic the other day, for probably 5 minutes, deciding, which Pana chocolate should I get. You know when you walk into the shop thinking you are only buying one item and you leave with at least two? Yes, that's what happened to me. Undecided between the coconut and goji, and the nuts flavours I grabbed both of them. Don't judge!
