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!

Styling Zara in Trieste

Hi loves!

I’m sorry for being inactive last few months due to studying and finishing gymnasium. Even though I was busy with school, I had to find time to relax and go on my traditional spring travel to Italy.

My first stop was Trieste, my definite favourite city in the world. It continues fascinating me all over again every time I visit it. There are no words to describe how peaceful I feel while walking along the sea in the early morning before going for a coffee in my favourite cafe. Coffee in Trieste is, I believe, the best coffee in the world right after the coffee in Verona. Day passed magically, we went shopping in Palmanova, relaxed at cafes, walked along the sea and explored some new streets of Trieste we have never been to. I believe it is very important for every traveller to travel through a place they have visited before even more in order to learn something additional about the stunning scenery of it.

Just like every girl’s priority, mine was also – to have a perfect outfit. When I came in Zara this wonderful dress screamed my name. It has amazing floral detailing with added a bit sparkles to it which makes this dress look fabulous and not too over the top. Since I had a very active day I needed to wear something comfortable which is why I matched white sneakers with it. This means that this dress is perfect for being able to adapt to any kind of situation. If you wear it on formal occasions, I suggest you pair it with a big black belt and black heels so the beauty of this dress could stand out and leave a breathtaking impression.

I hope you all like this look!

Weekend in Wien – Shopping

Day 1

Hi loves!

I hope you all are doing well. I am sorry for the inactivity in the past few months. During my vacation in February, I spent one wonderful weekend in Wien.

Upon arriving, we have firstly decided to visit Parndorf and do the shopping. As most of you know, I am a shopping addict, I can confidently say this is one of the best malls I have ever been to and I visit it often. I spent a few hours shopping in a pleasant atmosphere surrounded by a wide variety of luxurious brands before deciding to have a healthy meal in Nordsee. As always, I ordered a salad with tuna fish and mozzarella in a crispy bowl, which not only looks brilliant – but tastes delicious, too! After shopping we went for a walk to Belvedere. Beautiful entrance through the gardens towards the palace took my breath away just like the first time I saw them. After a long day, we got back to the hotel in a huge, modern and comfortable room preparing for pool and sauna which are just two of the amazing facilities this hotel has to offer.

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!

Dresden, Germany

January 2, 2018

Arriving in Dresden in the early morning we decided to enjoy our morning coffee at Altstadt Centre on the breathtaking view on the unique designed Frauenkirche – the largest Lutheran Church in Europe. After some wonderful time in an amazing atmosphere we have decided to begin the walking tour and meet this charming city. Sweets shops in Dresden sell chocolate in fabulous boxes which are later put in souvenir Dresden bags so I could not resist buying one. Exploring the Centre of Dresden I have noticed that it’s streets are full of cute shops which sell wooden old-fashioned objects. Due to the fact that it was getting colder every hour, we have decided to go to the biggest mall in Dresden called Altmarkt-Galerie where I ate croissants and later the most delicious fries with tartar sauce I have ever tried!

Dresden is very peaceful, there aren’t many people in cafes, restaurants and around the city nor during the day neither during the evening or night. It is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday in order to get away from everyday life and stresses. However, if you are the way I am – always seeking for adventure and new things to find out, do and learn, this wouldn’t be a place for you. Luckily, I do my best to enjoy every second no matter which city I’m visiting.

Adventures in Berlin

January 1st, 2018

First day of 2018 was beautiful and sunny in Berlin! Our plan for the 1st January was to go to the part of Berlin called Charlottenburg, where we drank cappuccino in the biggest coffee mugs I have ever seen! While enjoying our coffee we had a stunning view on the Emperor William Memorial Church which was still surrounded by Christmas Market, and you could still feel the holiday spirit despite the fact that Christmas had passed. After coffee, we had decided to walk through the Christmas Market and eat traditional German sausages. While visiting Germany, you can’t miss out on trying the most delicious sausages in the world! Since it was too cold outside, we got in Hauptbahnhof in search of at least one store that works and, to our surprise, Douglas was open. After buying some extra belated Christmas gifts, we had returned to Alexanderplatz where we enjoyed non-alcoholic cocktails in one of the fanciest cafe-restaurants I have ever been to in the glorious atmosphere.

New Year’s Eve in Berlin

Hi loves!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Belated Happy 2018! Today I am writing about the most magical night in the whole year in one of the most beautiful European cities – Berlin. Aside from enjoying the wonderful decorations and the view of Berlin’s architectural masterpieces, on New Year’s Eve, the city shines in a whole new light, it becomes perfectly radiant with an atmosphere that is reserved for that one special night.

I have visited many European cities for New Year’s Eve – Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, etc. and our tradition is a fancy setting at a banquet hall, with a view of the city and live music. However, this time we have decided to spend the New Year’s Eve on the Alexanderplatz where we enjoyed the gorgeous fireworks under the stars.

For this magical night I chose to wear a sequin skirt. This skirt is a must in your closet and is perfect for every special occasion no matter the season. I paired it (and I always pair it) with some plain colour, this time it was this simple baby rose blouse because of the effect of the skirt. Since Berlin is very cold during the winter, I have decided to add this stunning cardigan to my outfit and make it extra stylish.
