My Skincare Routine

Hello loves!

I hope you all are having a wonderful day. Today I will let you know about my skincare routine and which products I use, apart from the ones I got from the dermatologist. Before I begin I would like to let you all know that if you struggle with any particular area or have any skin problem, you should see the dermatologist. From my personal experience and my own experimentation, I’ve learned that none of the products you buy before talking to the specialist will help you solve any problem permanently.

Here are a few tips which are currently very useful for me and which have helped me improve and clear my skin:

1. Baking soda – mix one teaspoon of baking soda with one teaspoon of water and apply it on your face. Let it cleanse your face for 15 minutes before you take it off with lukewarm water and pat it dry with a towel.

2. Lemon – apply squeezed lemon juice on your face and leave it on for 15 minutes then wash it off with water. (If you do not have lemon at home, you can slice cucumber or tomatoes and rub them all over your face, they are as effective)

3. Honey – apply raw honey on your face and leave it on for 15 minutes then wash it off with lukewarm water.

4. Ice cubes – apply ice cubes on your face. Ice is perfect when it comes to tightening your face, getting rid of acne or reducing the redness.

I have recently struggled with small pores due to oily skin and this natural face mask has helped me get rid of them (banana milk face mask also helps with dry skin, glowing skin, anti ageing and winter skincare):

• Squeeze a half of the banana and mix it with 4 spoons of milk. Make a paste and apply it on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes then remove it with cold water.

Recently I have been using IUNIK skincare products which left my skin feeling super clean, soft and kept my face blemish-free. IUNIK products are all-natural ingredients.

1.Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel is my favourite IUNIK product. This moisturising peeling gel has a pleasant lime smell and unlike many other skincare products immediately clears all the dead cells from your face during first use and completely clears and smoothens the skin.

2.Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner helps rebalance the skin and can offer an effective solution to common concerns such as oily and acne-prone skin types. It helps clear clogged pores and smoothens the skin texture.

3.Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum exfoliates your skin, making it smoother and softer. It deeply cleanses your pores and clears the clogged ones – the results can be seen in just 3-4 days! Also, it works on tightening the skin, keeping it young and fresh.

4.Centella Calming Gel Cream would be good for your skin if you aren’t using many skincare products. Unfortunately, it is not a great combo with the skincare products I use from the dermatologist therefore I cannot use it.

I hope this was helpful. Comment down below which skincare products you use on a daily basis!

Cozy Winter Outfit Inspiration

Hi loves!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week! A few days in Belgrade were sunny and amazing, so I decided to take advantage of that and experiment with my clothes. Since it is still winter, I chose to wear this soft oversized baby pink/white striped sweater which is very comfortable and cozy. Comfortable clothes are always a good idea, especially during winter when it’s cold and everyone wants to just curl up in bed with a good book. I decided to add a leather jacket to this simple outfit, it is one of the fashion items that can make any outfit pop. A leather jacket is one those pieces that stick around your closet for years to come and also never goes out of style. Another item which is always on trend and never goes out of style is the classic little black bag. Whenever I am unsure about which bag would fit my outfit best I choose this one, and it will always have a place in my wardrobe. It is perfect for every occasion from morning-meets to late-night hours.

I hope you like this look, leave a comment below and tell me what you think!

Christmas 2017

Hi loves!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that you were surrounded by your loved ones. My Christmas began in Hotel Moskva, which is my favourite restaurant in the heart of Belgrade. It is luxurious, has a rich history and architectural detail inside and out. The wide variety of food and drinks they offer are enormous and very tasty, so it was a perfect place to celebrate Christmas.

I live in a country where the majority is Orthodox, not Catholic, so they celebrate Christmas on January 7th. Our vacation didn’t start yet and due to the end of the semester getting closer, I had no other choice but to go to school. My mom and I have a little different tradition when it comes to presents, we travel every year before New Years Eve so we buy gifts abroad. However, when I came back home, my mom surprised me with the unexpected gifts under the Christmas tree. My favourite ones were a silver heart-shaped necklace with a pearl and a basket filled with my favourite chocolate and snacks. We spent the rest of the evening playing ludo game in pyjama and enjoying the lights, the food and the music in this wonderful holiday spirit. It was glorious.

Christmas Eve

Hi lovelies!

Merry Christmas Eve and I hope you all had a wonderful day and have some amazing plans for the merriest day of the year, December 25th!

I love Christmas and I love the magical feeling it brings into homes. For this special occasion, I chose to wear a long purple dress with a bit of sparkles. Since the dress is simple I decided to add a belt to it. Belts are, in my opinion, one of the most underrated items in fashion. They bring attention to the waist and show off the curves. This gorgeous purple cardigan with sparkly flower detailing instantly completes the look, effortlessly. There is nothing more glamorous than throwing on a pair of heels. They are a classic piece which added an elegant touch to this look.

My Little Italian Diary – Coffee In Verona

Day 4

I love coffee. I have tried various types of coffee in many cities I have visited. By far, the best coffees I tried were in Trieste and Verona.

On the fourth day, we were on our way to Verona. Our main plan was to enjoy the coffee in one of the cafes on Piazza Bra. I have been to Verona many times before, but the season was always spring or summer. Every time we drank coffee we were sitting in the cafe’s garden admiring the breathtaking view on Arena di Verona.

However, this time it was autumn so we had no choice but to sit inside. We chose a cafe-restaurant called Vittorio Emanuele. It is the most elegant cafe I have ever been to. This time I have noticed that I never really paid attention to how wonderful these cafes look like from the inside. I was stunned by this glorious cafe and the rich decor. The coffee is served in fabulous cups and it is a perfect way to experience a different side of Verona’s coffee history and enjoy this historic place.

Little Black Dress

“Every woman needs a little black dress.”

I believe every woman needs a dress in every colour, but unlike any other, black dresses never go out of style. They are essential because of their minimalism. A black dress symbolizes effortless elegance, simplicity, and style. Every woman needs at least one in her wardrobe because it is iconic, versatile and timeless.

The dress I wore last night is classy and elegant, it has a high neckline and full-length sleeves. It looks a little seductive by the way it flatters the curves and this dress oozes charm and sophistication.

Yesterday I paired this dress with black leather/velvet ankle boots. However, depending on the occasion, it can be paired with heels and even UGG boots (if you want to be classy yet casual).

I hope you all liked this look, feel free to leave a comment below and tell me what you think! Have a wonderful Sunday!

All Black Fashion Inspiration

Hi loves!

Everyone has lost a loved one or has seen and experienced a situation in which another person has lost their loved one. In less than a year I have lost two very important people in my life, my grandmas. While black clothing is almost always appropriate, some religions and cultures expect family to dress in black 40-60 days or even a year in order to show respect for the deceased.

I do not want to continue with the sad topic so I will show you all in the next 40-60 days how I am going to pull off black clothing every single day. I will show you a wide variety of outfits and styles you can try and I hope you will like them!

Today I wore a black sweater with an ice cream detailing (so that I do not wear head-to-toe black) tucked in the black leather skirt which hugs my waist line. When it comes to socks, I chose black ones, however the outfit would look perfect with beige ones, too. These boots are my current favourite and as you could read in my previous blog, they can be worn with different styles of outerwear. No matter what they are paired with, they always put out a romantic vibe.

I spent the afternoon in one of my favourite places in Belgrade – Hotel Moskva. I ate the delicious prosciutto sandwich while drinking tea with my mother and relaxing. I love how decorated Hotel Moskva is at this season, I can’t wait for Christmas!

I hope you all liked my outfit today, feel free to leave a comment below and tell me what you think!
