Coats | What’s your type?

4-1

It gets a little overwhelming when there’s so much choice, doesn’t it? So many styles to choose from, so many things to add to your wardrobe. The “must-have” list keeps getting longer and longer. That’s how it was  for me when I started shopping for transitional coats for this season. I’ve had a few from last seasons but I don’t really remember when it was last time I shopped for coats. I am a type of person who needs to see all my options first before making a decision. Nerd alert! That’s why I’ve made a list of all the styles available (at least I’ve tried) and shopped similar items afterwards. read more

Things on my list

the BASICS | Leather leggings

5

In the last couple of weeks I’ve been getting a request after request about how to style leather leggings. I personally LOVE it myself and wear it almost everyday for work, casual (and business) lunches, date nights, movie nights, etc. You name it! The only place where I haven’t wore my leather leggings at yet is the gym because, I’m thinking, it could be a little uncomfortable to wear it during a workout. Although if you are unwilling to part with them for even couple of hours (totally sounds like me) and if your leggings are fabric ones with leather inserts it might just work out fine. read more

The review: Moisturizer vs Face Oil | Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil

ABOUT THE BRAND

I talked about this brand here and here before but I don’t mind talking about it again, since it is one of my favorite beauty brands of all times that has amazing products and great philosophy to back them up. I believe in good cause behind the brand and that is one of the things that makes Josie Maran so great.

Josie Maran launched her natural cosmetics line back in 2007, “self-funding the entire operation, after investors laughed at her business idea”. All of the products in her line are based on argan oil, which is produced by co-oops of Moroccan women. The company’s motto is “luxury with the conscience” which, I though, was pretty neat the first time I saw it. We, as customers, want something that is not only good for our skin but also is not destroying the planet and that’s what Josie is all about. She is committed to protecting and improving the environment. How can you not help such a great cause? Plus all her products are so luxurious and amazing that it makes it the easiest thing to do. read more

Athleisure | Fall edit

20

Today instead of giving advices on how to wear this and that I wanted to talk about something unrelated to an outfit post instead, and related at the same time. I wanted to talk about the importance of giving yourself a time-off, even if it is from work that happened to be your favorite thing in the world. That is where it gets tricky, actually.

Judging from my own experience, most of the time I am so into shooting, editing photos, creating new blog posts, Intagramming, Snapchatting, planning outfits etc. time just flies by and sometimes I can find myself being so overwhelmed by the end of the day that I barely have any energy left for a workout or some housework. It is still not the worse scenario though. Couple of times I found myself being depressed and uninspired. How can I fall out of love with the only thing I know how to do best and that keeps me going in this life? Of course, it only happened because I was a little more stressed out than usual. Sure thing I figured it out pretty fast (thanks to four years of psychology classes in college). But that was an emergency time-out. If I didn’t take it back than, maybe I wouldn’t be blogging now. read more

Body care for shower lovers

1

Leg workout on Monday, followed by hot yoga on Tuesday and 5K run on Wednesday, and so on till the end of the week. A hot, steamy shower after each workout is my favorite part of the day. And if I can fit in 15-20 minutes of sauna or steam room… Oh, what a bliss! As good as hot showers might be for your sore muscles and soul, it is not exactly an everyday bliss for your skin. Due to frequent showers your skin has less time to repair and recover through natural oil production which makes your skin dry and dehydrated. As a result skin starts to age prematurely. Missing just one day of showers is not exactly an option for me, since I workout or do some kind of exercising almost every day, that’s why I rely on my favorite products to lessen the damage as much as possible. read more
