Apple Picking

2H3A8068

Apple picking is, and has seemingly always been, a quintessential fall activity – a total must. What better way to enjoy a fall day than getting the family out of the house and into the country. Besides, is there anything more delicious than taking a bite from a perfectly succulent apple plucked right from the tree? I certainly don’t think so. Read more…

If you’re wondering how you can add a little something special to, let’s say, your denim jeans or jacket, try embroidery.

Today, I have found better quality products for my skin and I’ve found things that perform much, much better. A lot of it has to do with my skincare but I do believe that putting good ingredients on your skin makes a difference both in the long term and the short term. Read more…

When two become one… I am in love with this trend! Seriously, you can get into business with sassy but classy suits, crop top and skirt sets made for those Saturday night antics to tracksuits perfect for those lounge days you deserve. Either go matchy-matchy with the co-ordinates and or go solo and style them up as separates to keep them perfectly versatile. Whatever you chose get ready to rock your runway and earn that blogger worthy look you’ve been waiting for and twin it up. Read more…

… And then the sun kissed your skin and I could not help myself. I became addicted… We love summer, we wait for summer and after all, it leaves without even saying good-bye in 3 short months. Blue sky, sand in toes, ocean breeze, sunkissed hair and skin, salty air and sunny days… this is why we love SUMMER. Read more…

Flats or Heels?

Woman’s fashion world is a lasting topic. No matter how long we have discussed it, there will be always something new to discuss. And nowadays, we are modern women who live in an era where everything is influenced by social media. How many times did you hear the statement ”oh, I never wear heels because they are uncomfortable”, ”I only wear flats” or the opposite ”heels make you look more feminine”… Read more…

Culottes, gauchos, palazzo pants—this summer is all about the new, loose cropped trousers. Maybe you were not a fan of the culotte trend, but through repeated exposure and soul-searching, you’ve been worn down to the point of purchasing a pair.  Read more…

Tropical Kiss from Holguín

IMG_0354

In Holguín, you don’t need to go far for a taste of authentic Cuban life. Catamarans are waiting in the port to whisk you away to the very best snorkeling spots and Jeeps are always ready to lead you into the jungles of Cuba’s most adrenaline-filled destination. The water in Holguín is really blue, the sand white and the rum is as delicious as people say.  It’s hard to understand why Christopher Columbus, who first set foot in Holguín province in October 1492, ever left this place.

Cuba – Country of Contrasts

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE WILL FOLLOW // На русском читайте ниже🙂

IMG_6274.JPG

Elegant and old, this relatively hush city spells oasis to the traveler weary of confrontation. Predating both Havana and Santiago, it has been cast for time immemorial as the city that kick-started Cuban independence. Yet self-important it isn’t. Read more…

What’s for Breakfast?

Breakfast is indeed a very important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. Believe it or not, but the old saying “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper”, stands true today as well. Read more…

Kimono

2H3A6943.jpg

When a black silk dream in a floral print featuring birds and fauna, ”that you’d happily hang on your living room walls”, with mink sleeves and a menswear lapel walked the Gucci runway last season, it was a reminder—it hardly gets more beautiful than a collectible kimono. There’s an inherent glamour to the kimono—a garment with a beautiful Japanese history— and it fits perfectly into the au courant style equation that is leveraging volume, drama and sweeping lengths.

Biker Girl

2H3A6934

Fashion matters – no matter who you are. That spicy unexpected way of wearing clothes… Today, I am mixing biker jacket and fishnets. Why bikers are always in trend? They’re a great transitional piece and are key for layering outfits: leathers, boots and a motorbike. Mix in some badass attitude and you have the coolest carefree girl. Why fishnets? Fishnets are probably one of those accessories you’ve pondered, only to land on an “I could never pull that off” verdict. Read more…

Folk Art

2H3A6868.jpg

Mix traditional motifs and embroideries with modern silhouettes, and you’ll have yourself a spring fairytale. Taking inspiration from folklore and folk art is all in the detail today. Folk fashion doesn’t stand for newness, for innovation, as its beginnings entwine with history, with world-wide traditions and customs that bear their own kind of timeless appeal. But in constantly being re-imagined, the folk aesthetic does get a contemporary make-over, one assuring its elements are always coming across as pertinent. Read more…

Where would we be without love? A Valentine’s Day celebration can be as simple as a little heart-shaped candy containing the message “Be Mine” or as dramatic as a proposal for marriage. No matter what the day brings, it’s a day to celebrate love, the most powerful force on the planet.

Canada is known for its cold winters! It is totally unpredictable, how temperatures are raising up or dropping off. There isn’t much available online that depicts what true fashionistas are sporting on the snowy slushy streets of Canada. So, how is Canadian real winter looks like?  It’s all about boots, scarves, sweaters, mittens, hats, parkas… The whole nine yards. But sometimes we chill, as today! Read more…

Winter Mountains

mont-tremblant-canada

You don’t need to find a beach to beat the winter blues. There’s an invigorating, rosy-cheek feeling that comes from a day out among fresh air and snow—followed by something hot to drink. The mountains are a remote escape from humanity, a place to be alone and soak up the sunrise, the sunset or just the sun’s rays. Introvert Heaven. Read more…

Christmas is coming. Every year, everyone celebrates this special holiday season. This is not just for kids, but also for the whole family. It is the time for love, happiness and forgiveness. I love Christmas. Decorating the tree. Picking out special gifts to give to my loved ones. Listening to holiday themed songs on the radio. Watching heart warming films such as ”Home Alone”, ”It’s a Wonderful Life” and cartoons like ”Frosty the Snowman”. I love the twinkling lights. The celebration of Christmas makes me happy.

I think I’ve always had a bit of a weak spot for winter holidays! I mean, can you imagine a more perfect time of a year? Cozy, comfortable and in many ways, an epitome of effortlessly casual style… Though, I love pretty much everything about the Holiday season, from music and decorations, to parties and Holiday style, shopping for gifts is, definitely, my favourite thing to do!  Read more…

Bomber Jacket

Sportswear is, definitely, having a moment on the catwalks right now, and what better way to ease this trend into your daily wardrobe than with a bomber jacket? With its military fighter pilot origins, this jacket will instantly give you an injection of attitude. This season’s bomber comes in a daring range of colours and designs for those who care to adventure beyond the classic black look. And they don’t have to be ultra-sporty or masculine. My choice is to go casual with an army green bomber and destroyed denim. Read more…

I cannot believe it’s been a year already since I wrote my first words for this blog! It seems like all this happened in a different life, and I still remember exactly how I felt as if it was yesterday. I was excited and full of emotions: happy, nervous, unsure and disoriented. Unsure because although the idea of blogging seemed like a promising hobby, like so many others starting a blog, I thought who would actually read it, leave comments, BUT you know what? I went ahead and did it anyway, because it was something I could see myself enjoying, and I am glad I did not let my insecurities get in the way!  You cannot imagine how happy blogging has made me.

New England… Boston

Boston is one of the US’ most beautiful cities. It is, indeed, the “city on a hill” as its Puritan forefathers proclaimed it. It’s a beautiful gem, with museums, colleges, and even the headquarters of the Christian Science and Unitarian Universality churches. Boston captures the essence of New England – a region located in the northeast corner of the USA, made up of six diverse U.S. states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The region is bounded to the north by Canada, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by Long Island Sound, and to the west by the state of New York. There are rivers and lakes, towering forests, mountain ranges with hiking and skiing trails, pastoral farmland and countryside, and dramatic rocky coastline and soft, sandy beaches. Read more…

These close-fitting, high-collar sweaters will hug your neck tightly when it starts to get colder outside—making them the ultimate cold-weather fashion staple as the temperatures start to drop.
