Music of the night

Hello borg!

I can't stop listening to this song. Video is kinda creepy, but cool. And lyrics, well, more like those few lines, are truthful. I don't know what it is, but it is addictive.

It is tagged on last fm as: mellow, quirky, indie pop.. I don't listen to stuff like this normally.  

Well, perhaps everything is more interesting than studying. ( forget perhaps :D )

Somebody heard this song before? :)

Orchid 102: how to get rid of mealybugs?

I got my last orchid as a gift. Luckily, I always put my new flowers far away from other plants until I see that it is healthy.

This one was really nice colored and I was sad when one day I discovered cotton-like parts on her spike.

I immediately started searching on Google for orchid parasites and I found out that those cotton flakes are called mealybugs. They are disgusting and nasty bugs that can move from one plant to another! Oh, the horror!!!

Flower stem with ugly bugs

Said goodbye to that orchid and started with experiment.
I removed every part of orchid infected with bugs and trimmed roots.

When plant was bug free I washed roots in dish washing detergent and sprayed with window cleaning stuff. Mixture of detergent and isopropyl alcohol is used for killing mealybugs. I didnt have that alcohol so I used window cleaner, because it has isopropyl in it.

I rinsed everything and left it in a jar. It stayed there for a month.

Every now and then I sprayed water and orchid food mixture  on her roots hoping that it wont dry out.

And after one month, I saw that plant is still bug free, that was sign that I can replant it again.

And look at it now! It is still weak and sad looking. But it has NEW FLOWER SPIKE growing!!

Also this experiment somehow proved that Phalaenopsis can grow in air for a month if you water it when it needs water.

My orchid will live (for now :D) !

RPR : treaclemoon O - the raspberry kiss

So, while I was walking through shelves with body lotions I noticed something so sweet I had to have it!.. I found basked filled with little pink and can't-ignore neon green bottles .. well, I love mini packaging ...only thing to do was to try and resist buying awesome green one ( green was called ginger morning and it was too risky because ginger has hard smell )..

So I bought this :

It is called the raspberry kiss, brand is treaclemoon. Label says that it is a body milk. But it feels like a body lotion, too watery. I use it as hand cream. It has small pump and 60ml.

My impressions :

- at first it feels watery, but after less than minute you are left with soft
non-sticky hands, that will smell of sweet raspberries for hours (well, that is until you wash your hands ofc :D).

/on the back of the bottle it is written: getestet wurde es nur an uns selbst, nicht an Tieren. aww das is süß! / It is not tested on animals :) 

I already bought second :D

Cheers! :)

Random Product Review : Mixa micellar water

I wanted to buy any micellar water, I saw this, for me, new brand and it was cheap and also I liked that Mixa has a pump, so i decided to take that..

It says on the bottle that it is for sensitive and reactive skin and eyes, it has vitamin B5 and rose extract. Also it is paraben  and alcohol free and hypoallergenic. It has 200ml.

Things I LIKE about it:

+  it smells nice, like rose, it is mild, pleasant  scent

+  It removes most of my makeup and I don't have to rub my eyes for that, but for that effect cotton pad should be saturated

+  I have that one bottle for about 4 months and I am using it daily, it last long time, at least for me

+  it was cheap ( back then, garnier micellar water came out shortly after I bought this )

+  it is water and my skin feels nice after i use this so I would say that thing about sensitive eyes and skin is true

+  it doesn't sting when it gets into my eyes

Things I don't like:

-  that's kinda funny, but I don't like that PUMP. When I press it, too much fluid goes out of the bottle and not on the cotton pad, but somewhere beside, it is hard to control amount of fluid that goes out

- well it is water so it doesn't work on waterproof mascara


This is my first micellar water so I cant compare it with something else. I liked this water and I would buy it again but I would use something else for waterproof mascara .

Cheers! :)
