As you have probably noticed, I am finally posting more outfit looks on the blog and each time I am so excited to show them to you! Just over a year ago I was shyly beginning to experiment with clothes, trying to discover what I loved wearing and what looked horrible on me. When I say shyly experimenting, I mean looks like a plain denim combo with white sneakers - it just screams boring! I am still wearing white sneakers (even in this look as you see) but now I'm about going all out and exploring colors, textures and different cuts because life is too short for boring clothes. I don't really care if something is in style or not, and even if it doesn't really look good on me but I love how it makes me feel when I wear it - I will continue wearing it. Just because that's what fashion is all about - loving what you wear. Am I right?
Oh those relaxed Dubai days... How much do I love them. Thinking if I should stay in bed till 4pm, or go by the pool and read. Or slip into a blue floral dress and take a walk by the beach. I won't lie, most days I choose the first option and usually try to catch up on sleep but whenever me and my friends are in town at the same time, I try to explore Dubai as much as I can. It's almost been 5 months since I moved here and there is so much left to discover, I feel like I know only a tiny bit about the culture, the people or the city. So even though you may think all there is to do in Dubai is just lay in the sunshine, you're wrong. There are so many lovely places to go to and especially now that temperature is normal, it's a perfect time to do so. One of my favorite things about Dubai is probably discovering new cafes and restaurants, there are just so many of them here. In fact, I am going in a few hours to a place called The Acai Spot with Anna. Excited for some healthy goodness! So yeah, I am having another relaxed day.
Earlier this year, I spoke about how I found my signature perfume and I can say ten months later that I added 4 new gems to my collection that I love just as much if not more. However, I will speak about just one perfume that I bought when I was in Germany last month and I will tell you what I like so much about it. Recently, my friend Gabriele made a vlog about her beauty favorites of the month, and mentioned Marc Jacob's Decadence perfume, which I realised I have never even smelled before although it's been out for quite some time now. It reminded me I should visit perfume stores more often but that would leave a big damage on my bank account every time and that is not a good idea.
Good evening folks! You're probably surprised why am I sharing two articles in a row but to tell you the truth, I just felt like it. We shot this outfit with Emma over a week ago and knowing me it took me some time to sit down and edit them. But here they are! I have been loving this white sleeveless blazer from Missguided lately and wore in many different combinations over the summer. With a black romper for dinner, and now decided to style it with a pair of mom jeans and this white crochet top from NAKD, which has been my favorite to wear to the pool on those hot Dubai afternoons. I am still not sure if I like this outfit or not but as you know I like to experiment, so I guess this was just one of my many fashion experiments. I have a few exciting outfits to shoot next week but for now I am thinking what to pack. AGAIN! I am flying to Shanghai in a few hours and I haven't really researched what to do there or what's the weather like. I guess you can say I am well-prepared.
As a flight attendant, and a girl who doesn't have a perfect skin I can not stress enough how important a good foundation is for that flawless look and a boost of confidence. I have started using makeup early in life, well maybe not as early as today's generation but still. I have done plentiful of experiments trying to find the best or most suitable products for my skin, which is very dry yet tends to get oily quickly, and I can say I found my favorites. Over the last year I have bought quite a few foundations and my favorites are Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation - this one is raved about everywyhere and it is truly worth every penny. My next favorite is Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation, especially for long-haul flights as it really does the job perfectly and looks good even after hours in the dry airplane air. Of course, no matter how good the foundation is, it is crucial to take care of your skin pre-makeup and after. I love spraying Avene's Thermal Water whenever I need a little fresh up. I have so many small bottles of those at home and always carry one in my bag. And water, drinking water is probably the most important thing of all.
Some days all I care about is feeling comfortable - staying in bed for as long as I want, eating nice food, not stressing myself out, wearing simple pieces and not worrying about trends or what is popular at the moment. Those are the good days as I like to call them. Slipping into a pair of your favorite ripped jeans and glitter sneakers because why not? As for the fedora and the scarf in these pics, they were borrowed. My friend Ieva who took these pictures has the best style and I always like what she wears so I just asked her if I can borrow these two items for the photos and I am surprised how well they complete the outfit. Don't you think so? In fact, without them I think it would look kinda boring. But I won't lie, I love this khaki colored shirt from Chiwish and how they go with these CoH jeans. Said it a lot of times before but will say it again, simplicity is key.
