The very last goodbye to ŠARYK

It all happened in yesterday’s evening. The day went as usually (quite calm and good), I was already in my pyjamas when a phone started ringing. I did not look at who was calling, just picked it up. It was Mario’s mum, Bea. I thought she wanted to tell me how her staying in Austria was, she spent there four previous months. But the sentence „I do not have good news for you” changed everything. She did not have to continue, I immediately knew what had happened. I just started to repeat his name over and over, not listening to her anymore.
Šaryk died. His little soul left us because he was ready for another adventure. He had to go, and even we tried, could not keep him alive any longer. He is up there, barking with the cutest barking that any dog has ever had.

He lived for a long time. 16 years he spent with us, he would have been 17 in July. It seems to me too short, however I realise how lucky we were to have him for so long time. There wasn´t a serious problem with him, never. He was enjoying the life as much as possible. There were just few times where we saw him unhappy and that was when we were going somewhere and could not take him with us. But then we came back, he was always delighted to see us.

I do keep writing by using “we” because even Šaryk was my dog since the very beginning, he was here for everybody. He became an important part of many lives. He brought a lot of sunshine to our days, even when was rainy outside. Always there for anybody to cheer them up or cuddle a bit. Everybody whose life stories were touched by him would agree that he was that missing part of any moment, the part which made you feel instantly just perfect.

We are going to miss him a lot. The family is a bit quieter, tears are dropping to our hands and we are memorizing him, so he will never be forgotten. I especially see him as he used to enjoy lie down and started to crawl. He was adorable with a big, huge smile on his face. Yes dears, that dog knew how to smile. I will remember him playing with his favourite ball, the green one. He would walk an hour with that ball in his mouth and acting as he owns the best thing in the whole world.
From me
Šaryk, take care there. You were happy until the very last second and I shall take you as my inspiration to smile and enjoy the life much more. I will never ever forget that you were always by my side, especially when my mum died. You had a gift to heal sad human beings and I hope we gave you everything you ever wanted. Thank you for saving me. And now, I wish you a good night my loyal, old friend for life.

From Mário
Šarynko, you were the best dog I´ve ever met and you were definitely more just a dog for me. You were a real member of our family. You were one of the reasons why I was always looking forward home from work or trips, from England or just a simple shopping in a local grocery shop. An incredible being ... strong, sensitive, sensible, thankful. Forever in my mind and heart.

Skin care from Yves Rocher // Dada's beauty

Welcome Sunday, my favourite day of a week.

Today's post is about one of my favourite cosmetics brands. If you know me from the blog or maybe even in person, you know that I like Yves Rocher. And I know the company very well and so its products. I have tried almost everything from their skin care and so far know what is good for me and what is not. Honestly, I have not tried anything what would not be right for me so far.
This time I bought three products and one (a hand cream) I got as a present. I think the company knows me as well, since they gave me a hand cream as a gift <3

Or simpler than its title - a face serum which should moisturise your skin. I have had this serum once and it was very good, could not complain. The main reason I chose it this time was because of the mess which is happening on/in my skin. A half of my skin is dry and cannot breathe and the other is oily and stretched at the same time. This is called de-hydration and it is quite common problem for girls and women around the world in last few years.
Combination skin is, I think, the "worst" type of the skin since out there is a small number of products and advises which will really help you.

I have had this face cream in the past and not just once. When I used to be in a closer relationship with Yves Rocher, I used to buy it often. Especially during summer time, for other seasons this cream was not enough for me. But since my skin has changed its behaviour in last few years (which is completely normal due to I have gotten older, my lifestyle has changed and so on), I came back to this cream again. And well done Dada, this was exactly what you needed. 

Believe me, just the consistency is an adventure. Kind of light but still rich in texture, something between gel and cream, very unique. I use it in the mornings, it wakes up my face but also gives it the right kick for the day. 
I am not the person who expects big changes after starting using the face cream. I actually enjoy when I just can see that my face becomes naturally "united", fresh and feels good throughout the day. So this creams gives exactly that. And that's what I want so - yeah :-)

I enjoy when the title or the name of the product reflects what you get from it. The title of this cream is Sleeping Care and I also do use it for nights. 
This creams prepares my skin for the rest, makes it calm and released. I feel like when I change myself to pyjama and get to bed - chilly. And the same feeling does this cream to my face. Isn't that awesome?
The other huge advantage is that this is the cream which helps me reduce my starting wrinkles. I had it a few years ago when I saw that my skin had started to change with increasing age. I used the whole package and when I threw away the package I remember that the cream was also supposed to help to reduce my wrinkles. So I went to the mirror and  I properly checked my face. And believe, the wrinkles were gone. Wow. 
I can see my wrinkles have started to appear again. So - I bought the cream again. I have been using it for about a month and yeah, I can see the results. The positive ones, of course :-)
And I got this present from the shop, how lovely is that? A hand cream from the Christmas limited edition. And I just love hand creams so much. 
The cream is nicely perfumed and it hydrates my hand normally, but nothing really "caring". 

And again, the very end. Let me know if you know or maybe use any of these product and if you are happy with them :-) Anyway, see you later! Serusky
