PHOTO DIARY


July is coming to the end, and that means half of the summer months are already behind us. Holidaying, sunny weather, and time spent in the fresh air are only parts of what makes a wonderful summer. To my surprise (and to most of Britain, as a matter of fact) the weather in England has been exceptional and has been for the last few weeks. Even though I have spent most of that time in the office and caught only snatches of the sunshine while on my lunch break, sipping passion fruit flavour ice tea from a plastic cup (a secret recipe from the sales assistant at the Starbucks in my building) spending those short hours reading everything I can.

DOWN BY THE SEA - GET THE LOOK


source - pinterest
Holidays – one word, but it brings up so many thoughts and feelings. The sun, sandy beaches, the sound of the sea and sand between our toes… who could want anything more? But beautiful weather is just half of what makes a good summer. The second half? Having a good time on our holidays! I’ve prepared few outfits for you that would be ideal for a hot day. When it is boiling outside, remember to avoid wearing dresses or tops made out of synthetic materials (especially polyester). They don’t moderate the heat very well, which gets you hot and bothered as well as stopping your skin from breathing naturally. I hope that that my suggestions will be useful for you! :)

MINIMALISTIC STYLE DOES NOT HAVE TO 
BE BLACK AND WHITE ONLY


A minimalistic outfit is definitely a safe option. When combined with the knowledge of the main rules concerning how to match the parts of the wardrobe correctly, the possibility of a “faux pas” decreases to a minimum. Many people say that minimalism is boring; that it’s bland and has no character to it. Having few accessories and playing with fabrics, cuts and colours might appear unattractive, but it is obvious minimalistic outfits have something classical about them. Parisian chic - which is a much talked about subject in blogger-circles and general discourse on trends - is based on minimalism. We would do well to remember that we do not have to blindly follow the most popular trends as and when they appear; it is up to us to decide on what we are going to wear. As such, we are free to create a minimalistic dress that reflects on our polished inner selves.

SUMMER CULTURAL GUIDE

Photography by Terence Donovan
„HOW TO SURVIVE SUMMER IN THE 
CITY – CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS”

Summer in the big city can sometimes be difficult. Most of us dream about holidays, relaxation and escape from our day-to-day routine, but with our work commitments, we often have to plan our holidays down to the exact day. How do we then make the best of two months of summer and good weather? (Well, perhaps in London’s case it’s just two months of summer…)

I’ve written up a list of a few attractions for you; places and events that I think are well worth a visit during your summer break. Who knows - maybe they’ll become your getaway during your weekends and evenings after work :).

„FENDI’S FAIRYTALE” – HAUTE COUTURE FASHION SHOW


Six days ago one of the most beautiful fashion shows took place. This spectacular presentation during the haute couture fashion show of the Italian fashion house – Fendi, took place in the scenery of Trevi Fountain in Rome. Undoubtedly it is one of the most beautiful and one of the most impressive Italian’s buildings. It seems that the fairy-tale style location has only warmed up the atmosphere of that fashion show which the same has celebrated the 90th anniversary of Fendi.

LOOK OF THE DAY: PARIS IN LONDON


“SIMPLICITY IS THE KEYNOTE
OF ALL TRUE ELEGANCE”
Coco Chanel used to say; Elegance in dress is the freedom of movement”. As I grow older, and balance the creation of my own unique style with the fast-paced ways of London-life, I am starting to understand what she meant. The times of dignified woman in elegant two-piece-dresses and hats festooned with strings of pearls may be gone, but that is not to say that the classic sense of elegance is gone too. Perhaps it is that it simply looks different now, and that is why the meaning behind Chanel’s thought may not be as obvious now.

BEAUTY FAVOURITES – NEW IN



Holidays in Poland resulted in some of the new in within the beauty and books sectors. I don’t have the clue for it, but I have realised that lately I have been focusing more on good cosmetics and widening my horizons in the area of intellect rather than fashion. Considering the fact that my wardrobe will not stretch with the amount of new clothes and the space is decreasing instead of increasing, it appears to be logical :). Still no matter what, the cosmetics I have bought recently have already matched my expectations, so I have decided to share my experience with you. Maybe there will be something that you have been trying to find for a long time? :)

“BOARDROOM, NOT BORING”





Every field of work has its own dress code that all its employees have to follow. The formality of our dress depends on our field. Summer is exceptionally difficult time of the year for those who have a strict business dress code. But does formal have to mean boring?
How creative we can get with stylish business wear might be limited by where you work. But it doesn’t mean that say, being a lawyer, for example, that you have to wear white fitted shirt, perfectly catted skirt and a blazer with the fit (of course I do realise that there are certain firms that highlight the importance of the dress code by giving their employee uniform.

PHOTO DIARY


June is probably one of the most beautiful months of the year. Summer weather, nature shouting to us from every side presenting the most beautiful and cherished gifts in the presence of blooming flowers and trees. My favourite aspect of June are strawberries! Cakes, strawberry desserts or homemade cocktails which I never have enough of. It is also a month of weddings (I had a chance to attend one :)). Nevertheless, this wonderful month has come to an end (and alongside my holidays which I had a chance to spent in Poland, has finished), so I would like to invite you for some of the pictures I had taken during this last couple of weeks.
