Foodie time: DIY banana ice-cream

I have been experimenting with food lately. And this time I can present you super easy and healthy ice-cream, with no milk! Banana will not chrystalize, it will  end up creamy like an ice-cream should be. All you need is:

*Few bananas
*Blender
*And some will


Peel about 3 bananas(2 portions), slice them and leave them to the freezer for few hours. Blender them, it might be a little difficult, but worth the result. I added a little coconut cream as well.

 It would have been reasonable to slice the bananas. Next time I will be smarter.

Feel free to garnish your masterpiece with whatever you like. This is insane.

Hello pretty babies!

I never really liked those creepers-jeepers shoes. But who would have thought, that I actually will buy a pair for myself actually?

But here I am with my Underground Barfly's, and darn happy. They are really good quality and super comfortable. And did I mention very practical as well?

Bought from Reede shop, discounted price 75€.

Contemporary jewelry and artwork

Few weeks ago, a new course started for me - jewelery styilistics. The aim is to get more aware of this fascinating world - art in bodywear. They often make a striking statement and we might feel a bit vulnerable. Jewelry is just not a pair of earrings or a pretty necklace.  Finally, we are obliged to create our own piece, using some interesting material. Can't wait to play with the ideas and shapes. Meanwhile, I would like to introduce some artists and their works.

 1. Ted Noten is definitely my favorite artist in this field.The Mercedes Brooch, is made from steel parts cut from the body of a Mercedes-Benz E-Class 210 model luxury car.
2. Craig Green

3. Lucy Orta

If this is not perfection...

..and don't know what is. I just love the first meal of the day, accompanied with great reading and some lovely track in the background.  My favourite breakfast  is definitely avocado sandwiches and green tea with honey.

3 easy styling tricks to steal from the Fall 2014 catwalks

Turtleneck under a dress. This is just not a hot trend from the catwalk, but also a very practical one.  Choose a bit wider dress and a thin turtleneck. Seen at Louis Vuitton.

Vionnet turtleneck €260
River Island scuba dress  €75







A single earring. Go on and make a statement and be a bit rebel. Or wear a simple stud in second ear. Seen at Celine.

Erickson Beamon earrings(sold in a pair, still) €590





Socks and sandals trend seen at Hermes. Very Parisienne and Tres cool

Black cashmere socks €53
River Island shoes €75

Get the look: The American Hustle

I have been watching a lot of movies lately, and this Sunday I finally had the chance to watch the famous American Hustle. And we are back in the 70s! I had almost forgotten how glamorous that age was, and the movie reflects it just perfectly. If you care about authentic style and visually beautiful movies - this is something for you.

Power woman Sydney Prosser(played by Amy Adams) wears 40 high-end costumes(including lots od deep V decolletage)  - you can imagine how I aahhh,,ohhh and wow-ed the whole movie. Including iconic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses and vintage Gucci accessories.




How amazing is this original Halston leather dress? 




French Connection coat and River Island fedora.

 Maison Martin Margiela wrap dress, Alberto Moretti shoes, Lindex necklace.

Back in Black

For me, love for black comes and goes. I've had times when I sincerely hate that color, avoid wearing it, but at the moment, deeply have indescribable sympathy. Life is all about ultimate need for diversity and variety.

These are my recent so called black purchases. New hat from Forever21, bought from my trip to Paris. Comfy and body hugging dress from Zara and superduper awesome Wang inspired shoes, from Internet.

Why dont you: Women In Suits

I have always loved suits. Especially seeing women in them. I have always dreamed of owning it, but somehow never bought one. It has seemed a little bit expensive and not sure if I would actually dare to wear it. But here I am, with my super awesome pinstripe suit from Mango, all together only for 49,90€. I must say  - god bless sales!

We're going to have some great times together. No doubt.


Someone who has inspired me, has definitely been Mira Duma. She's mastered in wearing suits.
