CITY GATEAWAY - VIRGINIA WATERS


Is there anything more enjoyable than spending leisure time in the bosom of nature? I've always liked discovering new places, but since I've been blogging, my passion for exploring new outdoor spaces has gone beyond myself. I am very lucky that my fiancé shares my passion for photography so that we can discover new places together, sharing our insights and feelings.

GET READY FOR SPRING

Source: Pinterest
Spring has already started for good, so if you have not sorted out your wardrobe by exchanging winter clothing for lighter, then this weekend will be a good opportunity. It is worth to look through the clothes carefully and make sure that there are no unnecessary elements that only occupy your wardrobe and in fact you don’t even wear. Personally, with the advent of every new season, I do general cleaning and adhere to the principle of one season (if I did not wear something last season it is known that I will not do that this year either) and then I give unnecessary things to those who need them more.

SPRING AT KEW GARDENS - LOOK OF THE DAY


Kew Gardens is one of the places I've always wanted to see. For unexplained reasons, after almost five years of living in London, I finally managed to go there! Kew Gardens is a beautiful botanical garden, located in London's Richmond district. Blooming cherry blossoms, flowers, greenhouses with palms or cacti are just a few of the varieties of plants you can see there. The whole garden is divided into continents with appropriate climate conditions. Unfortunately, the part that seem the most beautiful for me, was unable to be photographed. The temperature in the center and the outside sun sufficiently warmed the greenhouses, what effectively prevented the taking of pictures as the camera immediately fogged!

MODERN UNIFORM WITH AL ET CLAR


A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Alicia from AL ET CLAR brand and David Stolarik in creating another Modern Uniform. I am very pleased that AL ET CLAR wanted to feature me in that series. Photos were created around the Barbican Center. That day I was wearing a wonderful dress just from AL ET CLAR, which was to be composed in three styles for different occasions. If you are curious as to how I did and read a short interview with me, I heartily invite you. You will find the whole article - here.

PHOTO DIARY


End of March always reminds me of spring, which according to the calendar has already begun. More and more sun and rising temperatures are just a few of the wonderful and very positive aspects that have a great impact on my well-being and I suppose yours too. Spring is a subject that I could develop indefinitely, but because I do not want to bore you, I invite you to my little summary of last month.

DISSERTATION SUPPORT - SURVEY

Source: Pinterest
Dear all! I would like to ask for your help. As you probably already are aware, I am currently in the process of writing my dissertation. The topic of the study is focused upon the blogs and its impact on the fashion industry. One of the ways to get as most accurate data as possible that would support my analysis is a questionnaire. As my readers and people who have a direct impact on building the blogosphere, I would like to ask you to participate and answer few questions.

THINK PINK - LOOK OF THE DAY WITH JUREKKA BAG


Pink madness caught up with me as well. When I was younger, like many teenagers pink was my favourite colour. Starting from clothes and accessories ending on the walls and room decoration. Time passed and while I was getting older, I started to change my tastes and reach for more subdued colours (mostly black). Fortunately, this period also passed and finally I realized that the colours if in the right combination can also look classy and stylish. My wardrobe then started to become more colourful and I began to feel the pleasure of styling them together in order to look chic, but not grimly :).

NEW IN - BEAUTY UPDATE


When I decided to start a blog deliberately I put the emphasis on lifestyle, because I wanted to make it a place where I will share with you my everyday life; places I visit, what clothes I wear and toiletries which I use. The last point of this counting always earns me the most problems, and perhaps this is one of the reasons why I didn’t focus the blog on the beauty part only. Cosmetics is a difficult subject, and probably many of you know where I'm going with this. Taking care of your skin or hair makes our requirements are getting higher and because the availability of products on the market is huge, it is difficult to find those that fully satisfy us. However, recently I have discover few products which I would like to share with you today.

PHOTO DIARY


Another month has passed by, and although usually I am overwhelmed with some sort of nostalgia, this time I feel a slight excitement. March is the month in which the calendar spring starts. I must admit that I am eagerly counting down the days! However, before it comes, I have to deal with a wave of cold air, wind and incessant rain. Despite this, on London's streets you can already see blooming trees. My beloved Notting Hill and the famous Chelsea, who are famous for their white houses, are now wrapped in pink flowers that can be spotted on the trees. I am sure that in the new month, this will certainly be the most photographed thing. But before that comes, I invite you to a brief summary of the past few weeks.

FINAL YEAR IS ALWAYS THE WORST ONE


Hello dear! Today's post will be rather short. I wanted to quickly tell you how I am doing and why there is so little posts on the blog being published lately. I'll start from what mostly caught the attention of those of you who are watching me on Instagram. Some time ago I was thinking about changing my hair colour and officially decided to go back to the dark that is my natural! It is quite "fresh" matter so it is still hard for me to get used to them.

Besides the colour change I had the pleasure of visiting the showroom with several interesting designers which took place during the London Fashion Week. A few pictures from that night will appear in the next photo diary of last month. This would be enough of exciting events. My absence is largely caused by the most difficult period in the life of student's in their final year of study. Presentations, essays, application for further studies and DISSERTATION!

KOSMETYKI NATURALNE - POLSKA MARKA CREAMY



Kosmetyki naturalne stają się coraz bardziej popularne a na rynku pojawia się coraz więcej firm, które zachęcają nas do skorzystania z ich produktów. Jak w takim razie my, konsumenci mamy wybrać dla siebie coś odpowiedniego bez popadania w konsumpcjonizm? Większość naszych decyzji jest oparta na znajomości danej marki, jej popularności (skoro ma kilkadziesiąt tysięcy, albo nawet kilkaset tysięcy obserwatorów to musi być świetna), ale niestety ta technika nie zawsze się sprawdza przy tak ogromnej konkurencji. Ciężko jest się przebić. Wiele firm, chociaż zasługuje by je docenić pozostaje gdzieś w tyle.

DRESS TO IMPRESS - VALENTINE'S DAY


Oncoming Valentine’s Day is another great occasion to dress to impress our second half. Nevertheless, if you are still single as you didn’t find that perfect guy that you want to spend the rest of your life with, you can use this day to celebrate it with your girlfriends by going for a dinner and show that whether we look good is not directly because we want to impress others, but we want to feel and look glamorous for ourselves! What can boost women’s confidence more if not herself in perfectly fitted dress! :)

No matter which option is yours I have prepared for you several outfit ideas which I would put on myself! I am hoping that you will find them helpful.

HOW TO HANDLE RAIN WITH STYLE – LOOK OF THE DA


Living in London taught me one thing – always carry with you umbrella or even better the raincoat. The weather in Britain is significantly different to what I was used to while I was living in Poland. Constant wind, frequent rain and this terrible lack of winter! Honestly speaking I could say that the English weather is divided into two seasons which are Spring and Autumn with only occasional and extreme hot temperature that are commonly known as Summer :). It is not difficult to get depression, because as you know weather has a major impact towards our well beings. Therefore, I have found my own tactic and instead of whining before I leave my house on a rainy day, I try to take more optimistic approach and my outfit seems to be very helpful!

Blush / Róż - Chanel  (99 Rose Petale) // Book / Książka - Aime Song "Pokaż swój styl" / "Capture your style" // Magazine / Magazyn - Porter // Bathrobe / Szlafrok - Marks & Spencer

First month of the new year came to its end. As it always happens, it is time to summarise the past few weeks. There wasn’t much going on in my life. The number of things going on at the university, quite a big and important project at work have made it unable for me to find enough time for any sort of pleasures. Well, maybe except few including a weekend gateway which I spent with my family, my best friend’s visit (you could see more in this post – link) and a little bit of time for myself when I could read some of the books that were waiting for its turn! How did you spend the last four weeks? :)

Today, I would like to share with you my weekend resume and few places that are worth visiting while being in London! :)

CHOOSING THE TABLES FOR THE WEDDING


The choice of the shape of a table and its setting can be difficult. We each have a different vision, and beliefs on everything. Round tables might not be such a bad choice, since the guests are then neatly separated. On the other hand, rectangular tables have always been used at weddings and have done the job well. The truth is that no matter how many people you would also, they will all have something different to say. The final decision has to be made by you. If you let yourself be guided by your own preferences while keeping functionality as a priority, you’ll make the right decision. However, to help you a little bit I’ve prepared a small tutorial, with things that I have thought about when planning the tables for my wedding.

3 APPS THAT HELPS ME TO RUN MY SOCIAL MEDIA


Creating your own brand in the era of the Internet seems to be simplified. However, how to do it effectively when social media are filled with hundreds of thousands of brands, blogs that run well and themselves became brand and individuals who through sharing their passions become the discovery of Instagram?

Writing this blog taught me many things, such as not to give up and do what we love regardless of the opinion of others. There will always be people who will wait for our stumbling, so the first lesson I have learnt was to not pay attention to negative comments. However, beyond the dark side of public content creation, I discover few interesting applications that I would like to share with you today. I hope that proves to be useful also for you :)

HOLIDAY WALK AROUND SHERE IN SURREY


Often watching my favourite movies (usually romantic comedies what probably doesn’t surprise you :)) I dream to visit these places, where they are being filmed. Beautiful scenery, fairy cottages, refined in every way cafes or the charming boutiques, where you can find most valuable things.

One of my favourite movies for autumn, or the best pre-Christmas evening is that by Nancy Meyers “The Holiday" in which the main role is played by Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz, which decide to switch places. This is the way Cameron, who portrays Amanda lands in the beautiful, picturesque Surrey near London. Just when I first came into contact with the film (and it was good few years ago) this place stole my heart. The main scene of the film took place exactly in Shere, Surrey, and anyone who will be in London, I recommend to visit it :)

IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS LIKE WALKING ON THE SEASHORE


The sea in winter time has its own charm. My traditional December walk didn’t take place by my beloved Polish sea, which I would love to see surrounded by snow. Nevertheless, this year I was able to catch some beautiful weather; the sunset today was especially picturesque. It would seem there is nothing more to say, except that 2017 on this blog has officially begun!

I know that this is also the time when many of you have probably started thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. I must admit that I have never set any resolutions for myself, but instead focused on the pursuit of a goal, rather than telling myself all the things that I plan to do this year. Knowing I tend toward a flash in the pan, I know it would stop me from reaching my full potential during the year! :) But I would love to read about your New Year’s resolutions! I also hope you stay determined enough to see them through!

PHOTO DIARY


Another month has come to the end and with it the end, the new month and the New Year has begun. December is always full of excitement on the occasion of the upcoming Christmas, its preparation, wrapping gifts, and this wonderful time spent with family and friends. Many of you have been lucky enough to have snow falling outside the window (in England it happened only once since I live here). Meanwhile, before the new posts will appear on the blog, I invite you to see some of the shots from last month.
