Hello summer! Holiday is here, finally! Our (past) schooldays with long summer holidays make us looking forward to this season as if we still could enjoy it like we used to when we were kids. Every year I can’t wait the summer holidays despite the fact that an air-conditioned cold dark office is the place where I will probably spend most of the summer days again. On the other hand, I wouldn’t manage to wear some of the pretty cool summer fashion trends if I didn’t have to go to work since I would probably spend most days in bikini. The weather is perfectly summery right from this season beginning! (more…)

Summer is almost here, my chic friends! When I was unpacking my summer stuff, I found a couple of tees which I haven’t been wearing much or not at all. Before I definitely said goodbye to these tops, I realized that I could check out some rip shirt ideas. A diy ripped shirt is a cool trend which is becoming as popular as the ripped jeans. You can show some pretty tan in an artful way and the skin poking out of the rips looks very sexy. (more…)

Melvita Rose Day Cream

In my recent beauty routine I’ve become pretty much minimalistic treating the skin of both face and my body with the amazing organic cold pressed coconut oil. I love its moisturizing, cleansing and regenerating effects. However, the oil is obviously not an ideal base to start with in the morning before you apply a foundation. Thus I was searching for a natural product with long lasting hydrating effects.

My green contact lenses which I introduced in my Color Lenses Review post are ideal for wearing on special occassions. I like to enhance my look with my emerald green eyes when I get ready for a night out. You will have chance to see some more looks created for the purpose. (more…)

In April and May you simply can expect rain anytime no matter what the forecast says. That is why I fell in love with my rain parka. I am sure it will be one of my most favourite pieces all spring and summer, maybe also fall. (more…)

Travalo Perfume Atomizer

I’ve been planning to show you this little helper for some time already because I think there are still ones of you who do not know what a perfume travel atomizer is and how useful job it does. I guess we all have our favorite perfume, or some might have more and like to change them according to the mood. Either ways, to carry a perfume bottle, even the smallest size of 30 ml (1 oz), adds a considerable weight to our handbags. (more…)

Closet cleanout and storage closet ideas

To prepare your closet for another season might be an uneasy task sometimes, especially if you operate with a limited space, like me. I have both a small closet and a small space for storage. As a personal fashion stylist, I do closet cleanout service and have already seen a lot of closets, most of them really big – and yes, by ‘big’ I mean the special closet rooms full of clothes and fashion accessories which a lot of girls dream of, not actually realizing that the more you have, the less organized it gets. Having a big closet = more options but also more work! The more pieces you own, the lower ability to memorize all of them you have. So the chance to find something in a huge amount of items and to combine an outfit lowers.náročné, ale i stresující.

If you invest time in your closet, it can work very well for you and the more time you literally spend in it, the higher chance you have to master dressing perfectly within seconds. What do I mean with ‘spending time in your closet’? A regular closet cleanout – before and after every spring – summer season, minimally!
Now, with spring in its bloom, it is necessary to sort the winter and summer stuff. No way I am saying that you are supposed to divide your closet into a summer and winter part! The magic is in mixing fabrics and you would miss that cashmere sweater during your night summer walks, as well as you would miss the chiffon blouse showing its collar, sleeves and bottom under your sweaters in winter.
What I am definitely sorting out from my winter stuff is the following: winter coats and jackets, high boots with fur inside, fur coats, wool accessories such as gloves and caps, knit turtleneck sweaters, nordic pattern clothing, winter sports clothes and equipment… Well, it suddenly has piled up!!!

Where am I going to store the winter stuff now after I’ve bought some pretty new spring clothing and shoes? Need some closet solution for small spaces! I am googling some storage closet ideas or tips on how to make an extra space in a small room. And I have found MakeSpace storage experts – a service which picks up your stuff and stores it for you. When you need it again, they simply bring it back to you. Depends on how much stuff you want to store, you pay a montly rent. MakeSpace is in the process of opening new locations, be on the lookout for MakeSpace coming to your area!

And what am I ready to unpack for this season? Definitely my lovely ankle lace-up sandals, balerinas, schiffon skirts, summer dresses, shorts, floral accessories and colorful scarves.
