Inspirational Quote: A Different New Year's Resolution

Happy Monday!

Tomorrow, exactly at midnight, 2014 will arrive promising new opportunities, new chances, new lives. We make resolutions and promise ourselves to keep them. Learning a new language, mastering a new skill, finding a new job ... all those are great, but we are often so concerned about ourselves that we forget to look at the bigger picture. It is time to make a change! 

Let our new year's resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word." Goran Persson



What's your resolution?

Beauty: Festive Glitter Manicure for New Years Eve

Glitter Manicure featuring Models own, Rimmel, collection and Beauty UK nail polishes
Are you already planning your look for New Year's Eve? I normally begin thinking about it a few weeks in advance so I can buy whatever I might need before everyone hits the mall for last minute Christmas shopping. No matter whether I am going to a huge party or celebrating at home with friends and family I always want to look fabulous welcoming the new year. 

Doing my nails is not something I particularly enjoy, but every little detail counts. Well groomed hands say a lot about a woman and the holidays are the perfect time to wear my favorite glitter polishes. Actually, for New Year's Eve I am going to layer three of them for an extra sparkly effect!

It is about time for me to get Instagram too, right? I also want to start buying more e-books as it will be easier to just a tab around instead of a thick, heavy book and I don't have any space left too keep them anymore.

A Guide to Homemade Christmas: Cozy Hand-knitted Christmas Tree

Cozy Hand-knitted Christmas Tree for decoration made of natural spun and unspun wool by knitting and hand-felting


I used to count to the days till Christmas and peek under the tree every morning when I was a child. And very often there were gifts waiting for me J

Nowadays we refer to the days around Christmas and New Year's Eve as holidays and working days. To be honest I look forward to them not only because I won't have to wake up early and hurry every morning, but also because of the Christmas euphoria - the tree coated sparkling lights, the gift wrapping and the decoration of the house. And the Christmas carols that sound all around of course. 

Today I'll show you how made a little, warm and cozy Christmas tree. Of course we have a big Christmas tree with shining garlands and beautiful ornaments all over it. But this decoration, made of natural wool, warms up the atmosphere around the table. To recreate it you need to have basic skills in crochet and needle felting as well as lots of fantasy and at least as much Christmas inspiration.

Inspirational Quote: 2013 in review. "May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears." Nelson Mandela

Happy Monday!

2014 is almost here and it is time to review the past year, thank for our blessing and forget the problems, evaluate our achievements and analyze our failures. 

For me personally 2013 was a year of change and growth, a year of search and discovery. I've spent most of it living in London, studying journalism and interning as an editor, completely immersing myself in what I love most - fashion. I've learned that you can be lonely or bored among millions in a city full of opportunities, but only if you let yourself be. I've learned once again that hard work and courage always pay off. But most importantly, I've learned that fashion really is my calling, my happy place, my biggest dream. 

There's one thing London gave me that no other place did, the feeling of infinite possibility, the assurance that nothing is impossible, that I can do it all! 

I've had people tell me my dreams are too big, too far, too scary, unattainable and untouchable. I've let myself believe it more often than I'd like to admit. I've let it get to me, pondered over it and brought myself down. But no matter how hard I've tried, I could never accept it. I could never accept that I won't be part of that world of beauty and inspiration that fashion is. I could never accept I would do anything different from pouring my thoughts through my fingertips, letting them form sentences and paragraphs for me to write and re-write in a restless search of perfection.

I've realized it is not failure that I dread that most, it is the fear itself. The fear to try and give it all, to put everything on one card and jump. What I dread the most is to settle, to reconcile, to give up my dreams and myself. What do I have to lose really? I can either jump or always stay on the edge and wonder what if... 

As Nelson Mandela once said ...

There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Nelson Mandela




You can achieve it! You can have it all! You just have to try and try again! "It always seems impossible until it's done." - Nelson Mandela

The Christmas Wardrobe: Festive & Elegant in Black & White

Christmas outfit featuring H&M snowflake sweater, handmade Houndstooth skirt, handmade knit mohair hat, fluffly ugg inspired boots, star-shaped hair clips from Accessorize and Sleek Vixen lipstick
Christmas-wear does not always have to be loud, ugly or childish. Don't get me wrong, I have a secret passion for the so called ugly Christmas sweaters with their colorful prints and built-in lights. I actually find them absolutely adorable. My point is that you can be festive and still look perfectly appropriate for every social situation, from a day at the office to a dinner date.

To achieve that I paired the most adorable sweater (which I finally gave in and bought after lusting over it for almost a month) with a skirt that I designed and sewed with my mother's help. The snowflake motive embellished with black sequins gives the perfect amount of sparkle while the full skirt layered with tulle looks elegant and feminine (the Ulyana Sergeenko way I hope). The feeling of cozy comfort is extremely important for me during the cold winter months so instead of heels I chose my cute fluffy boots that have never failed to keep me warm . Why not add even more sparkle with the hat and hair accessories. It's almost Christmas after all! A touch of red on the lips and I'm ready to conquer the world with a smile!

Guest Post: Smart Buying Tips for the Fashion Loving but Low-on-Cash Gal

A beautiful wardrobe and a true-to-yourself fashion persona are both built bit by bit, accessory by accessory. They certainly aren't built in a day, contrary to what some wardrobe re-haul experts would have us believe. For anything good to come into existence and to keep evolving it takes time. And money. But not so much of the latter as that of the former.

A Guide to Christmas: Scented Decorative Cushions

Creating presents for my friends and family is a very special experience. I find inspiration in everything, in the aroma of Christmas cookies and tea, in the sparkling lights in the shop windows and even in the cold air turning our breath into clouds while the waterspouts freeze into fascinating sculptures. I dedicate the weekends to realizing my ideas. It's great! I've always shared the idea that a gift I've made with my own hands carries a special emotional charge that's shared between the receiver and me.

I will share with you some of my little creations in a series of blog posts. I believe you will find interesting ideas that would give happiness to your loved ones.

Guest Post: What do your jeans say about you?



Jeans are a fashion staple in every woman's wardrobe, and every style has a distinct personality. Whether you're a bootcut babe or a skinny jean diva, just what do your denims say about you?

Guest Post: Danielle Cofezer on womenswear fashion

The latest trends in womenswear include not only clothes but also accessories such as purses, sandals, lingerie, watches, etc. A survey depicts that a large part of the expenditure made by women and girls is on accessories only. For this reason fashion houses work hard to produce the most attractive accessories at affordable prices. Popular names in the fashion industry include Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Miuccia Prada, Victoria's Secret, etc.

The Wardrobe: Minty dress & Violet knits

Winter has arrived sharply and unconditionally. The city is covered with snow and the air tingles my cheeks, but I'm still holding on to my Autumn memories of warmth and beauty, of pumpkin spice and apple pies. On a day like that we took a walk in the park enjoying the sun, the colors and the absolute serenity.

Wearing color lifted my mood even higher. It's a trick that always works. Brights make my eyes sparkle with joy! Mixing the elegant dress with (almost) combat boots and slouchy hand-knitted accessories gave it a new carefree vibe. Looking at it with new eyes I felt as if I was wearing it for the first time.

Never hesitate to remix your wardrobe, play with your outfits. Often combinations that might seem absurd create unexpected and fun results once you dare to put the pieces together!

A Guide to Homemade Christmas: Ginger Bites

Homemade cookies: Christmas Ginger bites
There is a month ahead till Christmas Eve. We still have autumn weather here but next week the first snowflakes should fall. I’m not fond of white sports, nor cold and wet winter days but the white snow cover to me is mandatory to feel the Christmas spirit. As a driver I really do not miss snowfall but the child and dreamer in me is waiting for the white fairy. It is magical getting up in the early morning and looking out of the window to see the world sleeping under a white blanket.

To invite the Christmas mood I decided to make ginger bites this morning. The aroma of ginger, cloves and cinnamon is cozy and homy. It is not equal at all to just opening the box of readymade cookies. It took me about two hours to cook and decorate the bites with white icing and the season magic is here.

Make a cup of coffee and enjoy the moment with your loved ones.

I have forgotten how much I love tartan only to rediscover it this season. Reaching at a back corner of my closet I found this skirt I've had for the longest time. The combination of red, green and blue always puts me in a festive, holiday mood and makes me dream of sparkly lights and mulled wine. Paired with my furry vest which is the warmest and coziest piece of clothing in my wardrobe and my favorite pair of Autumn flats it makes the perfect outfit for a pleasant walk along the shopping street on a gorgeous sunny day.

Homemade: Autumn Detailing



The weather was really great last weekend. The last sun rays are somewhat nostalgic, kissing the fallen leaves and making the park fairy. It was a special moment for me saying farewell to the warm, sunny days and preparing to say hello to the chilly winter.

I'd like to share with you some details of my outfit which I consider to be very tuned to the autumn mood. The soft green wool fabric makes the Banana Republic jacket a real treasure. The narrow belt with a ribbon back makes the piece more girly and I really love it.

Are you in the holiday mood already? Can you feel the party season creeping in with all of its lights and sparkles? If you asked me a week ago I'd say "NO", but seeing Marks & Spencer's Christmas TV commercial made me think of beautiful snowflakes, quietly dressing the world in white, of fairy lights magically sparkling in the twilight, of the warm scent of cinnamon and the hope of a better tomorrow. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and it is almost here!

Ugg inspired flat fluffy boots in black
Once the Autumn weather began creeping in, tingling my cheeks and tousle my hair and the warm sweater and colorful tights took over my wardrobe I identified a gap in my closet. From all the pairs of shoes that I own (one too many I admit) there was not even one comfortable pair in black. For over a month my mission was to find the perfect addition, comfortable and fun, warm and easy to wear. Not an easy task since I am very petite and wear mostly heels.

Velvet is a beautiful fabric with a rich history. It's softness reminds me of ghostly shadows, quietly moving in the twilight, whispering forgotten stories of the past. This blue velvet dress courtesy of Fashion Union embodies all of that and more. Elegantly embraced by softness, moving stealthily while the darkness was falling around me I felt like a part of The Coven (American Horror Story anyone?).
