It is so dark and cold outside, and I feel sow sad and tired today. I am dreaming of a sunny summer day, lying on an exotic beach, enjoying Pina Colada’s and the sunset. Here are some pictures from our previous holidays in Mauritius. It was such a nice place to visit, with beautiful nature, friendly people and of course sunny days! I can definitely recommend it…
Sometimes I just love and enjoy lazy weekends. Sunday is a special day for me and my family, since we can spend some quality time together after busy weeks. And pancakes in the weekend, became almost a tradition in our house, as we are all crazy about it…Love my family and these special moments.
For the last few days I just felt like showing my colourful Peter Pan collar, which I made myself last winter. I received so many compliments on it, so I thought why not to share it on my blog. I embroidered it with glass seed beads and sequins. It wasn’t difficult to make it, just maybe time consuming, but as long as I enjoy doing things like that, I had a great time while creating it.
It is time to have a few words on one of my favourite beauty products that I felt in love few years ago. Coconut oil, that is one of the natural must haves on my bathroom shelf, and I use it for so many things, in my beauty routine. As I always struggle with very dry hair, coconut oil became one of my favourite products. I usually apply a lot of it on my hair before I go to bed and I let it stay while I sleep. I promise this is the best overnight treatment for your hair! You can wrap a shower cap or a towel, so that you don’t destroy your pillow. My hair looks so much better after I wash it in the morning. It feels soft, nourished and shiny. Moreover, I noticed that it helped my hair grow longer and faster as it has so many vitamins and improves scalp health. So, try it! And later on I will share some of my other coconut oil beauty tips…
Meet my beautiful, stylish and inspiring friend Joicy. We met when we started studying Sustainable Fashion Design in Copenhagen, and became very good friends. She is so sweet and funny, and I am so happy that I had the chance to meet her. Joicy is from Brazil and she moved to Copenhagen almost one year ago. She worked as fashion journalist for the last few years and at the same time she is the founder of her blog Vintage Guide. Since we became very good friends, we decided to share and combine our ideas, styles and personalities. So, finally here is our first project together.
As the weather is getting colder and the sky grey, we decided to bring a lot of colors to the streets of Copenhagen. And it does’t matter if you go for smart everyday look, or something extravagant, choose colors to bring more life to the grey autumn city. And remember…. there are no rules in fashion! So, I hope you will enjoy our colorful day in lovely Copenhagen.
For the last few weeks I just feel like wearing red. So, I guess I already know what will be on my next shopping list. It seems like many designers as Alexander McQueen, Versace, Fendi or Dior felt in love with classic red this autumn and I absolutely love it as well. And it doesn’t matter if you go for a casual or classic, red is a good choice for this season.
Recently a have been visiting Yayoi Kusama exhibition in Louisiana Museum of Art, located outside Copenhagen, and must say it took my breath away. Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is mostly known as contemporary artist and can be called as princess of polka dots and nets. Apart from her fascinating drawings, she is famous in pattern making, performance art, sculpture and installations. It was quite impressive to see Kusama’s Infinity Mirror and Installation rooms, as an expression of her mesmerizing mind when it comes to outside environment. Through her life stages, Kusama was involved into fashion world as well. She started creating her dresses and textiles and in 1969 she opened her own clothing store. Moreover, her patterns and polka dots can be found on different design products. Collaboration with Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton leaded to a beautiful range of fashion wear like shoes, dresses, bags or sunglasses. If you are in Copenhagen until 24.01.2016, don’t miss a chance to see the fascinating Kusama’s infinity world. And I promise it is worth to see! If you need more info you can visit www.louisiana.dk
One of the reasons why I would not leave Scandinavia, is because I love four seasons, and I just enjoy each of them. I really love autumn, as for me it is such a beautiful and spiritual time of the year. However, it is very hard and takes some time to adapt to a cooler weather. So, knit jumpers and cardigans are my best friends during this time. It makes me feel warm and cozy.
