Fashion, beauty, travel and all mixed together


It's just one month until Christmas and that means winter clothes is already out and about. One of the winter's essentials  are definitely  sweaters. Worm, cosy and at the same time incredibly chic they can't be replaced. 
This years superstars are with no doubt Alberta Ferretti's ones and they have taken over trendsetters wardrobes. 

                                                                                                From Monday to Sunday, let's go!

However when it comes to price not everyone can afford these cuties. But that doesn't mean we have to totally forget about therm. Lots of high street brands came up with equally cute but more affordable versions that will keep us worm on a cold winter days.

  Which foundation is best for oily skin? My answer, without too much thinking, is Estee Lauder Double wear. I have discovered this one nearly two years ago and since it's my holy grail. If you are one of those people who wakes up in the morning shining bright like a diamond this may be your holy grail too. As you may conclude my skin is oily and loves to break out. So if you recognise yourself in these previous sentences you should definitely try this one out.

  Double Wear is high-end foundation that comes in 42 shades so you shouldn't have a problem with finding one that matches your skin tone. Coverage is medium to high and you can build ti perfectly without looking cake-y. But you will need to prime your skin. As this foundation is thick and dries quickly, it's important to use primer. The formula is extremely long lasting. You can pull all day without any problems. On my T- zone it stays perfectly from 8 to 10 hours and on cheeks even longer. As I mentioned before, it dries quickly so it is best to apply it with beauty blender and it's really important to apply a thin layer. With matt finish and medium to full coverage I expected it to be heavy, but surprisingly it is not. At first it can be a little uncomfortable for about 20 minutes, but when it sits on your skin you don't feel it anymore. Another pro of this beauty is a small amount of product you need, so one bottle lasts me for about 8 months. The only negative thing is packaging. The bottle is really beautiful and it has that high-end sophisticated look, but it comes without any applicator. You get used to it, but when you pay almost 40 bucks it would be nice to have an applicator. Although Clinique foundation pump fits on the bottle that is not a very convenient solution, but it's good to know. Anyways, except applicator thing this foundation is real lifesaver for us oily people. With this one you don't have to worry about leaving your brown- beige fingerprints on everything you touch. It's perfect one for long exhausting days or crazy nights out, bit more wintery than for summer, but it also finds its use during hot season. If you haven't tried it jet I highly recommend it. It is really worth every dollar. Thank you Estee Lauder.

  Btw, in this article from BuzzFeed is said that you can buy professional size foundation from eBay beauty sellers for a lot cheaper. A one-ounce bottle of Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is $40 in the stores and the 6.7-ounce professional size is $80 on eBay. I personally haven't tried this one out so I can't recommend it, but if anyone tries please share your experience with me.  

In the meantime you can purchase it on Estee Lauder official site or on Sephora site.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” - St. Augustine

  If you ask me, traveling is one of the greatest joys in life. The experience of seeing new places, meeting new people and their culture can't be replaced with all the books you read and stories you hear. Alone or with a company it depends only on you. In my case it is always better to have someone to share those memorise with but either way it is most important to have fun. Don't be scared to get lost in the streets, go to some not so touristy places and interact with locals. Beauty of nature in combined with extraordinary architecture and human souls can create incredibly beautiful things. So don't sit on your couch anymore, buy a ticket for plane, train, bus doesn't even matter. Go somewhere, it doesn't have to be far away. Believe me, you'll find some pretty ace places near you so don't make excuses anymore. Just open your eyes and let this wonderful place called Earth to take your breath away.
  Here are five pretty awesome destinations that are worth a visit in this year. Or any other year but, the sooner the better.  



1. New York City, USA

  New York City, New York, greatest city it the world. Country jungle. This city is absolutely breathtaking, its vibe, its people, everything. It makes you addicted and you wanna go back again and again and again. Just the feeling that you're in the centre of the world, in the city where anything is possible is incredible. Strolling down the streets of NYC you'll always find something you've seen a million times on big screen. Soho and Central Park are some of my personal favourites. It is also great to take a walk to Columbia University just to see more residential and less touristy part of New York. I could write about NYC for hours,  but I'll just say since I've seen Big Apple there is no other city where I want to live. It was love at first sight.

2. Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany

  In my opinion Italy is the world's most beautiful country. Home of pasta, pizza, cappuccino, Versace, Armani and Prada. Home of most beautiful language and most stylish people. Can it get any better? Hardly. Of all its beautiful regions it's hard to choose which one is that one you should visit first. But as the most popular one Tuscany deserves to be that one. Florence, Pisa, Siena are breathtaking cities with amazing history that will make you speechless. Tuscany is the home of some incredible people such as Leonardo da Vinci and Dante Alighieri. Explore small streets, eat some gelato, rent a car and get lost in the hills, don't forget about wine tasting and last but not least, go to small villages which have preserved the true Italian soul.

4. Dubrovnik, Croatia

  You have to visit Dubrovnik! We call it The Pearl of the Adriatic, nowadays people may also know it as King's Landing. This is a city with the amazing history. If only stones could talk those walls would tell us some pretty crazy stories. Objectively Dubrovnik is Croatia's most beautiful city. Subjectively it's second, but don't judge me. It is place for hedonism, go to some pretty little restaurant, chill on a beach and don't forget to visit at least one Dalmatians islands like Korčula or Mljet.

4. Havana, Cuba 

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/37225134400704374/
  Cuba is definitely a country on my current wish list. One of the last countries under the communist regime is for sure interesting place to visit. This unusual place of rum, cigarets and revolution is a perfect holiday destination for those who want unique adventure. A place where everything is a bit "retro" and where people are simple and seemingly happy like they are stuck in some better and simpler time- time of idealism and true human values. Place where people still talk to each other and also place where music and hot Caribbean rhythms are everywhere. So it is the perfect time to see real Cuba before it disappears.

5. Hong Kong, China

    One more on my wish list is this beauty. Hong Kong is located on the souther coast of China surrounded by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea. Is known for its skyscrapers and a large natural harbour. With a relatively small area and seven million inhabitants  is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. This is fascinating and dynamic city that combines the best of East and West. Hong Kong can offer you anything you can imagine and it's definitely worth a visit.

Bright colours, shoulder pads and metallic fabric are officially cool again. Here's how to give them a modern spin.


1. Big shoulders

  This trend is definitely coming back but in it's modern way. Shoulders haven't hit streets that hard jet, but don't call old lady in the grocery store old-fashioned anymore because she and her pads are totally back on track.

5. Denim 

  Denim definitely isn't trend, it is immortal and essential but as everything each fashion period brings their own denim trends. So be prepared to see a lot of oversized jackets, mini and mid skirts, onesies and those objectively ugly, but to all of us irresistible mum's jeans this season.
