SARAH JESSICA PARKER AND HER SHOES COLLECTION FOR NET-A-PORTER


Sarah Jessica Parker is definitely one of those women, who always look amazing. For many (including me) she is equating with Carrie Bradshaw from known in the whole world TV series and movies “Sex and the City”. I don’t know how about you, but I personally love both parts of the full movie and could watch them over and over again. The outfits presented by Carrie always bring my fascination and her shoes collection is probably what every fashion lover dream about. 

As well as in the movie as in her private life, Sarah Jessica Parker is well known from her penchant towards shoes. You probably saw many of her pictures on the Internet when dressed in the simplest outfit while walking her kids down for classes she has this amazing shoes on her feet. Her own shoe line seemed to be only a matter of time.

Bloggers X Dress Of The Month


Exactly one month ago I received an e-mail in which I have been invited for co-operation. Its sender was Boohoo, who for some time already is creating a campaign called "Bloggers X Dress Of The Month". Every month, they choose a selection of their favourite bloggers who will receive the "surprise" dress The campaign aims to show the blogger style, in which each of them will identify a particular dress, giving it its own unique style. The main purpose is breaking the rules of what can and can‘t be worn. The mystery around the model of the dresses, which I got along other bloggers was intentional because personally I wouldn’t buy this dress. However, knowing that I agreed to participate, I got to adjust it in a way that is compatible with my style and taste.

I am very glad that I took part in this campaign. As a result, I was able to see clothes from a different perspective and realize that every product can be customize to become “ours”.

BLACK FRIDAY

Year after year, popular in America Friday sales-called "black Friday" find its place in Europe. I remember a few years back when I moved out from Poland, any sales of this scale have not yet had a place in my home country. As can be seen from year to year, everything changes, and in this case to the benefit of the consumer. As it usually happens during the sales, it is easy to fall into exaggeration that’s why I wish you a lot of sense for this weekend, but also cool findings which will refresh your wardrobe! :)

To help you a little bit in this sales madness, I prepared for you a few products that I was able to spot and I would be happy to welcome in my closet :)

. . . .

Z roku na rok popularne w Ameryce piątkowe wyprzedaże zwane „black friday” czyli czarny piątek odnajdują swoje miejsce w Europie. Pamiętam jeszcze kilka lat wstecz kiedy wyjeżdżałam z Polski, wówczas takowe wyprzedaże nie miały jeszcze miejsce w naszym rodzimym kraju. Jak widać z roku na rok wszystko się zmienia a w tym przypadku z korzyścią dla konsumenta. Jak to z reguły przy wyprzedażach bywa, łatwo jest popaść w przesadę dlatego życzę wam na ten weekend dużo rozsądku, ale i również fajnych perełek, które odświeżą waszą szafę! :)

Aby odrobinę wspomóc was w tym wyprzedażowym szaleństwie, przygotowałam dla was kilka produktów, które udało mi się wypatrzeć i z chęcią powitałabym je w swojej szafie :).

BOOHOO PRESS DAY


Few days ago I had the pleasure to take part in the Boohoo’s press day, which took place in The Hospital Club, located in the heart of Covent Garden. I must confess frankly that when I started this blog I didn’t expect that after only a year I will have the opportunity to personally see the collection for the upcoming season! I can’t describe the euphoria which gripped me over when my mailbox showed the invitation for Boohoo’s SS 17 press day. There is nothing more I can do thank to thank you my dear readers for being so willing to visit my blog and it is thanks to you, I had the opportunity to participate in my first presentation of the collection for the coming season! Thank you! :)

WEDDING INSPIRATION – NEUTRALNE KOLORY JAKO MOTYW PRZEWODNI


Once all the basic planning elements (such as booking the room, the photographer etc. about which I wrote to you in my previous post - here) is behind us, it is worthwhile to reflect on the theme of weddings. It is especially important to rethink it relatively early if you plan to have handmade wedding invitations as it is in my case. My good friend is passionate about craft and the same she is able to create a masterpiece from a typical birthday card, wedding card and invitation! However, hand-made card is a long process, so you need to start it as quickly as possible to be able to have it done on time. Then you must also take into account to distribute invitations quite early in order to have time to prepare vignettes, an array of tables to help guests find their place, and guest books (if you plan to have one).

I am a fan of neutral colours, so I prepared for you a summary of inspiration in white and shades of powder pink, which are not only very elegant, but also light up the room.

MY WAYS TO ESCAPE - ONE DAY AT THE LAKESIDE


There are some days when loose sweater - preferably warm and squishy like a fluff golf, oversize coats and voluminous scarf is the only thing I dream of when leaving my house. If I also then realize that I'm not going to 'civilization' but over to the lakeside where suede boots are the last thing appropriate for such occasion, I put on wellington boots to my already sloppy outfit :). When even though the glowing sun it is really cold outside, it is difficult to look good.

November for a student is really a hard nut to crack. Chasing deadlines at the university, writing proposal for my dissertation and every move there are new presentations. In order not to get crazy, it is necessary to break away from the crowded accumulation of information, that is commonly called "studying" and get away where peace takes on new meaning. It also turns out that during such a casual walk I discover a little piece of Greece - a cozy restaurant overlooking the lake, where from the moment I entered, I could feel that very well known to me already Greek kindness!

HOW TO WEAR TRAINERS - CASUAL DAY IN LONDON


‘I would hate for someone to look at my shoes and say, 
“Oh my God! They look so comfortable!’  Christian Louboutin

When I put on sneakers, I try to assure that aesthetics of my outfit was still preserved. Who said that sport shoes can’t look classic and elegant as much as possible? I'm not a person who would torture herself all day in heels with the only reason to look chic. I like heels as I think most women do, but I also like to feel comfortable. You can take my word that for that days like this, when from early morning I run around the city traversing kilometers, facing demonstrations in the center what is reflected in a closure of Westminster bridge and for me it means another hundreds of meters to go to reach my destination, I would be far away from a chick woman in heels. I would rather remind of a marathoner, who at the time of photos put on a pair of heels for decoration :).

If you want to stay updated, I invite you to my Pinterest - link.

In today's post I have prepared for you a list of the most important things you need to start with when organising your wedding. There is nearly two years till our big day, but even though many things including the venue have to be booked a way in advance.

NEW IN


Each season apart from the exchange of clothing for those lighter, or (as in the case of fall and winter time) to the thick one, entails the new cosmetics. Creams, body lotions, shampoos or conditioners that effectively help us to regenerate skin and hair that are dry from too much sun are cosmetics that we reach for the most frequently. Transformed form of our makeup is another sign of the new season. Pallets of shadows in darker and cooler shades, pink blush instead of bronzer for cheeks and a lighter shade of foundation.

It's been quite some time since the last post with ‘new in’, and because as you already know from previous posts autumn clean-up is already behind me, so it's time to supplement my wardrobe in some necessary little things.

PHOTO DIARY


I only remember as Autumn knocked on the door. Even though the season has changed and it gets darker much quicker than it did in the Summer time, the weather in England have spoiled us well enough to make me feel as it is only September. Well, time flies and even though I come with the assumption that the academic year has only began, it is already the 5th week and the same the new moth has arrived. To keep the tradition going it is the time for my blogging ritual, so I would sincerely like to invite you for some of the pictures taken in the last couple of weeks. During that time, I had an opportunity to spend few days in Poland, eat my very first pumpkin pie, discover the recipe for the warming up tea – ideal for those cold, autumn evening and many more! :)

PLAID COAT - ENGLISH AUTUMN


I am coming back to you after quite a long period of absence. Trip to Poland, then the mass of work to do, and the university made the day turned out to be too short for me. However, as it happens in life everything regulates at some point. Therefore, I am returning back to you full of energy and with luggage of new inspiration. There will also be a new series of post on the blog which personally I can’t wait to introduce! Any idea what will it be? :)
