Saturday is a perfect time to go out! Today I created for you a very disctinctive and daring look for extravagant women. I matched the glittering fabulous Balmain dress with fiery red stilettos of Valentino, which dominate in this season in Fashion Capitals. Because the dress and shoes are the two top elements of the outfit I decided to add minimalistic elegant bag with silver hardware.Which elements of the outfit do you find extravagant and why? Let’s go to the party!
Hello Everyone! Today I am presenting my idea of Summer Night Look for party & unofficial meetings with friends. Simple outfit for those of you who like feminine look with distinctive colorful accent. I would wear jacket because it is a perfect solution when it is getting cold in the evening and you still can look stylish and smart. I do not prefer to wear too much colors but the bag brightens the heavy style of jacket, while the thin shoulder strap and narrow heels look light and schick. You can replace the bag with a creamy one, it will look awesome!
Sunny morning, head full of ideas: Where should I go today?! Sometimes I think 24 hours is too less! Having free weekend I always want to do maximum many things I can. This time my destination was- Long Branch Beach- New Jersey Shore:)
I woke up really early, something about 6.30 to prepare myself to the trip. What do we need? Here are my ideas if you go by car. I wanted to present for you the “MUST HAVE” from my experience going to the beach during whole summer time:)
I went with my husband together, so he helped me carrying all this stuff:) (Of course I would not take so many things if I go on my own! That would be little crazy! Umbrella, refrigirator and, and, and….)
So, we took sunblocker cream, towel, a lot of cold water in little refrigirator, white cap, some clothes in case of wind or sunburn, wet wipes, snacks as chopped fruits in boxes, sunglasses, something to read, hawaians, sun umbrella, camera, some cash for entrance fee, dinner and souvenirs and small bag in which I carry money and camera close to me.
Why do I find this place special? Because there is everything what I expect from a weekend trip. It is safe, clear and the Resort of Long Branch offers to its clients a lot. I advice to have a small bag if you plan to walk along the beach and have a dinner. You do not have to worry about things you leave on the blanket because it is a really safe place. I was amazed of sea food around the beach.
Everyone can find something here. Drink Bars with music, Snacks, nice beach clothes of good quality, hotels, SPA, family- friendly areas and water sports. I do love this place also for clear water, wide beach and possibilities of spending here time, which Long Branch offers.
I am considering which beach of New Jersey is your favourite? Any ideas for the comming weekend?:)
Beautiful weather came to New Jersey, so it is a perfect time to wear heals outside for a Sunday brunch:) Let’s see the details down below!
I simply love heels, so only when I get a chance, except office, where they are required, I try to match them with shirts, jeans and dresses, which I can usually wear on weekends or my free time.
You may think: “Why she doesn’t prefer to run in hawaians?!”. Girls! Nothing could be more wrong:) I love comfortable shoes, but when it is a special time with my family, having together nice meal outside, I do love to wear clothes and shoes waiting for me in wardrobe during all the winter time!
I have today leather trousers, chanel 2.55 bag with H&M glasses, shirt and shoes form collection of 2015. I find black and white always elegant, but to avoid looking “overdressed” for the brunch, I crashed the outfit with heavy heels. The shoes are quite comfy but I would recommend them if you go by car and spend your time sitting. It sounds like they would be uncomfortable, isn’t it?:) The truth is they look perfect with skinny clothing, but even if they are comfy, after few hours of walking your feet will call for help in every heels by 70 Farenheit:)
If you prefer flat shoes, perfect for you in summer time are leather ballerinas or sandals. Choose the right style, match them for instance- with the bag or dress in pastel colors and you are ready to go:)
How do you like to be dressed having lunch or dinner in the city?
Have a great day Ladies!
Hello my dear women!:) Today I got an opportunity to test for you few cosmetics from freshly founded company- Acti Labs. It is an exquisite beauty house offering luxurious French skin care and custom-blended cosmetics via online shop and thousands of independent ambasadors. All products are created with the finest paraben-free ingredients and are never tested on animals. As the manufacturer of own product, Acti-Labratories, LLC invests heavily in research and development to ensure that only the best products reach their consumers.
I decided to test 2 blushes and one powder- that was love from first sight! Down below I will explain you my experience with Acti Labs cosmetics, but first I would like to intruduce this comapny with some photos.
They offer a variety of skin care- serum,cream, masks and whatever you can imagine:) I also heard about their great matt lipstics which seem to be the same quality as the great well known of Kylie Jenner:)
But comming back to blushes! I decides to test two colors which I personally find beautiful. I have chosen two shades
1. sweet apricot 2. coral dune
All products, as you can see are in purple color is their trademark. After first use of these perfect colors for summer season, I can sincerly admit, that they are very pigmented, but a bigger difference between these shades you will see on my skin.
Worth mentioning is the fact, that it is hard to make a stain with these blushes on the cheek- that means they blend nicely. This is what I expect from colorful cosmetics. It is my face without blush.
and here you can see how blendable they are
There are two different shades available online: https://acti-labs.com/me/labs/cosmetics/powder-blush-on/
The second product I tested is the Diamond Dust Face Powder in color Sweet Nugat. Available are 3 shades:
The packaging is very safe with a button- that means , there is no risk it opens in your bag. Mirror packaging will look perfect in any elegant bag if you carry cosmetics with you.
Moreover, its has mirror inside, so you can easily primp your make up during the day. It contains a transparant cover inside, which I use as a kind of “prop” for the blending/powder brush.
Because I suffer from redness on my cheecks, I always choose powder and fundation in yellow tone. It is a multi purpose powder, which has also application as highlither/bronzer or even blush. It neutralizes imperfections and creates glowy efect on the skin, so I used it as a setting powder, because I like “healthy look”. The mosaic delivers natural look which suits every complexion.
It is as good pigmented as the blushes. You can use it also without foundation. I recommend to put it on your skin in summertime, to have some correct most of the imperfections to look fresh ….. and the most important thing to me- ingredients:). Becuase first positions on the list are in majority of the product, I decided to analyse some of them, starting from the beginning and the result…was very optimistic:)

Hello my dear women! Because today is a great weather I decided to wear marine striped dress in mixed style. I was walking around the city so I had my comfy white Nike shoes which fit every smart outfit! I added Chanel 2.55 bag with golden hardware- that is my first mixed outfit- classy Chanel with sporty Nike. One year ago I could not imagine to wear this two visibly distinct piece of clothing. As high heel fanatic, now I am definitely starting to get on board with the sport shoes! I am an example, that women chages their mind:)
Who knows what will be fashionable in 5 or 10 years? My attitude towards style and its dedicated rules was always quite restrictive. Now I want to open my imagination to new ideas and fashion experiences! What are your mad ideas about matching different styles?
Be slim. Look good. Change your style. Be trendy, says the Devil. In this day and age we suffer from information overload. Mass Media create trends, image is becoming more important, while huge corporations are setting us high targets. How to look good and keep a cool head? Few tips about work dress code.
The general definition of dress codes says that these are written and, more often, unwritten rules with regard to clothing. Clothing like other aspects of human physical appearance has a social significance, with different rules and expectations being valid depending on circumstance and occasion. It is worth mentioning, that every company has different rules – some are more or less restrictive, from professional to casual style. However, if you occupy high position – you may be obliged to every day professional business dress code. If you are a new employee you may look around before you start your first days in a company, or simply ask your superior. If you feel uncertain – do not be concerned about it. Being a part of group will be very welcome by your boss. Some employers prefer corporate/business casual dress code during weekdays, except for friday when you are allowed to wearsmart casual clothing. What are the most popular work dress codes?
Dress code plays identification role. Every day the same look without a common problem – what should I wear today? 🙂
The most restrictive dress code. Every detail is defined and matters to the extent, where one ommission, means you are downgraded to business casual. It is dedicated to professionals occupying the highest positions. Required are:
- light coloured collared blouses
- neutral color long sleeved classic suits (long trousers or knee lenght shirt)
- black or neutral hosiery
- elegant, closed toed shoes, medium heels

Acceptable are white and light blue shirts with collar under the suit
(Buy this shirt at Macy’s online, click on the photo)
Here are preferred:
- botton down shirts
- elegant shoes
- dress pants
- capri pants
- suit pants
- sleevless bouses
- sheer Blouses
- tank tops

It is the second most restrictive dress code. is is sharp and elegant. You can use colors but maintain class in clothing. Welcome are elegant shoes, dresses, jewerly and hairstyle. Avoid “party” shocking make up:), super short dresses, low neckline, big shoulderbags. The rule is: the less, the better!
It is a combinations of casual, business professional and business casual style, that is why it is called “smart”. It is appropriate to wear nice skirt, femi dress or dark jeans with a printed shirts, blasers and some elegant accesories which will give your outfit a schick sharp look. Do not be afraid of colors! Show your personality. Full elegant flexibility.
This style can be defined as something relaxed, occasional, not planned. You can wear your favourite pair of jeans! Match them with a stylish top or accesories. Heels not required, but not forbidden! Feel smart and comfortable.
Get to know your coworkers and style that is required for every day look. To change the outfit you may operate with jewelry, accesories, colors or hairstyles. Moreover – your make up or a small accent like neckerchief can change the whole look, so you will always look fresh and schick.
Find your style and feel good!
Sometimes we have this kind of feeling “I am not good enough”, “I am not lucky”. We usually put blame on environment or destiny, which – in our opinion – control our life. Let’s stop for a while and invest time to make friends with a very important person in your life. Yourself.
Considering the fact, that every human has different experiences, expectations and perception of the world – one thing is common. The heart of the issue of missing self-acceptance, is not only the way you are treated by others, but foremost, how you treat yourself. Self-acceptance is a long process but incredibly worth of effort.
Start from yourself
Making excuses is one of the easiest way to discontinue our activities. How many times thoughts like “it doesn’t make sense”, “it is impossible to change myself” manipulated your choices and led you to surrender? By nature we try to simplify our life making seemingly safe decisions by choosing excuses. We forget about the fact that destiny is in our hands. In March 2014 the psychologists from University of Hertfordshire conducted a survey about happiness proving that habit which corresponded most closely with being happy with overall life is self-acceptance.*
Find your advantages and right people
Take a piece of paper and start writing about the things you like about yourself. The second step is to write about your achievements, yes, these little ones too. It will open your mind for positive emotions. In admission, if you want to develop the list of your advantages and need some external motivation in the beginning – ask your friend for creating the list of things, they like in your personality with explanations or let them describe common positive experiences you both had. Discuss together and hang both lists in a place where you spend most of your time.
Act in the circle of impact
Try to think about the things, that you want to change; improving qualifications, loosing weight etc. Additionally, you can find issues that interfere with your happiness. At first, make decisions in the area where you have influence. It will build your self-esteem step by step.
Treat yourself good
What does it really mean? My father always reminds me that for people thankfulness comes hard. At the end of the day you can try to write down about two or three things that you are gratefulf to yourself for. Thank yourself for the “good things” you have done from your perspective. Approximately after a month you will collect about 50 positive thoughts! Be aware of the fact, that everyone makes mistakes, but sometimes take the liberty to do so. Nobody is perfect.
Do not compare yourself to others
Avoid comparisons. Treat yourself special. Noone has the same talent, color of iris, bodyshape, memories or achievements. He or she will never be you. On the contrary – someone can can envy things, which you are not aware of. Do not waste your time thinking about someone’s else life. Use your potential, chances and abilities.
Create dreams and set goals
Having a purpose in life motivates incredibly, especially if it is based on your dreams. They do come true if you believe in their fulfilment and carry out some effort. Set small and approachable goals in the beginning. You will feel more confident, because independence, regularity and consistency influence our self-esteem.
Failure is not a failure
Remove word “failure” from your dictionary. Substitute it with “lesson”. Our brain “listens” to the words we say. By using positive sounding words you will put youself in a positive attitude.
The fact is, I don’t do everything right all the time, but that doesn’t affect who I am. I know I’m loved and that I’m still a good person. I’ve made mistakes in my life—and I’m sure I’ll make mistakes in the future—but I still like myself. Joyce Meyer
Control inner monolog
Critical voices telling you to give up steer your whole mind. Most of people are not aware, how important role it plays in making every day decisions. It may motivate you, or bring you down – depends on what they tell you. Start to follow your thoughts and replace the negative with positive. To excercise – you can write all the negative thoughts you have heard. It is good to write them instantly to safe them from oblivion. Read them aloud, then cross them out to make your brain forget them visually. Analyse every thought, asking yourself in form of self coaching: “why did I think this way?” It will help you find the problem, that may stop you from making right conscious decisions and being happy.
To sum up – treat yourself well. Follow your needs, listen to yourself and create your new, brighter reality. Open yourself for new emotions and conscious happy life.
