It´s wedding season so lots of us are attending amazing weddings, celebrations and summer parties. My cousin is getting married this weekend and so I have been picking my wedding guest dress. It is going to be a pretty merry wedding so I can wear this fun printed wrap dress. I love its A cut with the tie waist, a little frill and asymetric bottom of the skirt. (more…)
Hope you all entered the new year with new energy. As soon as I went back to work after the holidays, the claim ‘New Year, New Me’ in connection with the beauty industry was popping out at me everywhere. It made me start thinking about why we all are so obsessed with having a change of our appearance. We have become obsessed with getting rid of all imperfections, or at least cover them. (more…)
Wishing a very happy new year 2017 to all of you, my chic friends!
Hope you enjoyed a peaceful Christmas break. I love Christmas and the end of the year so even though the holiday again passed too quickly, it was very relaxing and beautiful memories of the time spent with my loved ones remain. (more…)
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!
School chalkboards celebrate a great comeback and enter our daily lives at home or work. I came across the chalkboards some time ago on home design webs and despite my skin allergy to chalk stuff I love the idea of writing notes or messages on things covered in blackboard color. I will probably write with gloves on :-D I am still in the process of designing my home office and so why not include a piece of chalkboard! You might use it on the wall, part of your desk, a glass bottle, into an old photo frame or a mirror…
I could not resist purchasing this shabby box. It can have so many uses in home decor and looks very French and romantic. Immediately I decided that its function in my flat will be a jewelry box. Since it does not have any separators inside and is wooden, I needed to resolve organizing jewelry by making DIY separators. (more…)
You may remember my post with my dreamy home office design – Home office in which I explained that I would like to re-arrange my work corner but that the reality will not follow my dream office design because I own a very cute but a little destructive predator… can be seen here – Shaddie, a Russian Blue Cat ^^. Nevertheless, I incorporated another task into the reconstruction… not that it has been not difficult as itself to think out a practical plus beautiful (and affordable!) solution. This another thing is that I have realized I really would like to have my work-desk at the window. You can see the view from my dining/work room in the photo on the right and above… Well, ok, I know it is not the Alpes or NY city viewed from the thirtieth floor. Any pleasant feeling you can get out of the place you live in is worth it, I believe. During my working process I have found myself having stood up from my work desk which is now facing the wall and turning my sight the other way out of the window several times. How relaxing, inspirative, feng-shui and whatever else is working seeing green in front of you! I would have been practicing this long since I moved here if there were not for the radiator under the windowsill. (more…)
