The leather pencil skirt

Hello Everyone and happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far?

If you don’t own a leather pencil skirt yet, it’s time to get on it! Not only are they empowering , but they just look amazing on all bodies and are easy to style. A trend with this much staying power is worth a bigger investment, but even if you don’t want to drop the money on real leather or a designer label there are still lots of options that will keep you looking amazing and on-trend for a long time.

Happy Easter!

Hello Everyone and happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far?

I just wanted to say hi and share some photos with you from last weekend. In today’s post, I’m wearing my latest find  –  the high waist  mom jeans from Zara. Comfy and casual, they are exactly what I was searching for but haven’t been able to find the perfect fit until these ones.

 

I also want to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Easter!

Just give Pink a chance!

 

Good morning Everyone and happy Thursady! How is your week going so far?

Guess what’s hot this spring? All things pink!

 

 And what’s not to love about pink? It goes with everything and makes you look fresher than fresh!

 

There has always been something… juvenile about this color, traditionally associated with hyper-femininity (formerly the preserve of Barbie) but, it’s 2017 and people are wearing what they love. So it’s no surprise that pink has been reclaimed by designers, editors, and industry movers, positioning this color at the center of their aesthetics. The prayers of girly girls everywhere have been answered: pink is the unofficial color of the year!

Hand Care tips with Rituals

 

Hello Everyone and happy Sunday! I hope you enjoy the weekend just as much as I do!

always get all kinds of compliments on how nice my hands or feet look, so, for today I’d like to take the opportunity to discuss my hand care ritual a bit.

 

Here’s what I do to keep my hands soft , supple and hydrated: 

 

  •  For me, one of the easiest ways to remind myself to moisturize is to place tubes of hand balm in my kitchen and bathroom. This way, whenever I wash my hands, I rehydrate my skin immediately.

 

  • Anytime I exfoliate my face I exfoliate my hands too. It sounds so simple but it really works!

 

  • I always carry around a small tube hand balm in my handbag to moisturize on the go.

 

  • I never go to bed without moisturizing my hands.

Recently, I started using the Rituals Miracle Scrub and the Rituals Ginkgo’s Secret Hand Balm  and I absolutely love this products! The Miracle Scrub was actually my first hand scrub and I was amazed with the results. The Ginkgo’s Secret hand balm  is a lush, deep moisturizing hand cream with shea butter, ginkgo biloba leaf and ginseng root extract. The scent is soft and warm, a very comforting scent. My hands feel healthy, & renewed. This hand balm does everything it promises!

 

 Here you will find a few more tips to take care of your hands:

– wear gloves anytime you use cleaning products or when gardening;

 

– in cold weather, wear gloves when you go outside;

 

– protect your hands with sunscreen;

 

– pushing back your cuticles is the best way to care for them.

 Not everything has to be difficult. Simple things can make a big difference. Hand care is very similar to any beauty routine. Just try to find what works for you and be consistent.

My Essentials

Hello Everyone and happy (almost) 😉 weekend! I hope you are all enjoying your Friday! 

I love the classic look! That’s why  today’s blog post is dedicated to not one but three (!) wardrobe classics: the beige trench coat, the relaxed fit jeans and the white blouse. For me, these items are the workhorses of any well-dressed woman’s wardrobe, providing the foundation for many outstanding looks.There’s something so effortlessly chic about  these classic and timeless key items! And let’s be honest: you can never go wrong with a beige trench coat and a pair of jeans.

 I think it’s definitely worth investing some money in these closet essentials, because they will never be out of style – promise!

Double Leopard

 

Good morning Everyone and happy Thursday! How is your week going so far? I just wanted to say hi and share a few new pictures from last weekend.

 

In my opinion, the only thing better than leopard print is… double leopard print! I really love animal prints, they have such a fun effect when they’re mixed and matched. To balance the volume of these two patterns, I made sure to mix in a lot of neutrals and basics to make this fun outfit super wearable.

 

And, can we talk about puppy Jolie for a second? She really steals the show today, isn’t it?

Pink * Feminine Energy

One of the most popular colors for Spring 2017 is pink. Dusty pink, candy pink, baby pink, raspberry, fuchsia, peach, magenta and deep cherry pink provide a pretty new way to see fashion through rose-tinted glasses.

For today’s look I paired this beautiful  MbyM  trench coat in dusty salmon shade with a pair of  flared jeans and sneakers for a casual look . I absolutely love the  maxi quilted scarf in the same color, it really elevates the whole look to another level.
