“Being glamorous is about strength and confidence. It’s black and white – dramatic. You have to be strong” , this quote is exactly how I feel especially in this extraordinary look.
Lets allow ourselves to be strong and proud of who we are, lets acknowledge our strengths and flows, improving every day yet doing it only for ourselves, not because someone believes we should do so. It takes power to accept criticism but even more power not to allow it to bring you down.
I am wishing all of you to find your inner confidence and love yourself just for who you are <3
As summer is coming to an end it is a perfect opportunity to put on a mini white dress along with cute pink glasses and a pink Dolce&Gabbana Sicily bag! The playful red lips add a bold attitude to the whole look! I must also share with you that the new Sephora lipgloss that I am wearing beats all of my go-to brands such as MAC or Chanel! The Sephora lipgloss, which by the way was only 10 euros makes your lips look fuller, with a velvet texture and most importantly you can go through a whole day without having to reapply it! ( and no this was not paid advertisement!) The amazing heels that I chose for this look are Gianmarco Lorenzi that I bought in London a few years ago with 90% discount 😉
I hope you enjoy my photos and let me know what you think about this look!
As I was on a short but oh so sweet family holiday in a gorgeous hotel Cala Moresca in Bacoli which is about an hour away from Naples, I took a day trip to the colourful the Island of Procida. This island looks a little fairytale setting and when we asked the locals for directions to the historical city centre, with pride they had answered that the whole island is a historical centre!
What really took my breath away was the view from the top of the island. The little colourful houses, the gorgeous blue sea and small boats altogether create truly magical atmosphere. If I was a painter, this view would definitely be on oh so many of my works! As unfortunately I don’t have this talent, all I can do is pose for some or many photos here! 😉
This island is a must-see when you travel to this part of Italy!
It is not a secret that colours have a very strong psychological effect on us, so we have been carefully choosing colours for our homes and offices, certainly choosing light green shades to create a calm relaxing environment. So why not do the same with our clothes? We wouldn’t paint our bedroom all black, so why do we put black on ourselves all the time? By wearing dark colours we subconsciously affect our state of mind and eventually these colours could lead to feeling down. After seeing an article about this in Vogue I became even more convinced that we can feel happier and more energetic by adding colours to our wardrobes.
I have created this look to show how to wear bright colours and how to mix bold and strong shades together. Orange is an energetic colour that makes you more open and sociable and along with the romantic happy pink it will fill you with positivity, inspiration and courage.
Don’ t be afraid to stand out by wearing bright colours and be noticed as you never know who you can meet and what kind of adventures it can lead to!
Skirt and Top: ZARA

I have understood that you can feel elegant and feminine in a suit as much as in a dress. Moreover, wearing a suit will make you stand out and all the attention at a party, wedding or any other occasion will certainly fall on you!
I have chosen this suit as it has a beautiful blue colour that I am recently simply obsessed with and moreover it shows off my figure in a very good light! To complete the outfit I chose a pair of suede high heels that have almost the same shade of blue as the suit itself!
Would you ever choose a suit over a dress?
Catania is probably the most comfortable city from those that I had a chance to visit during my Sicilian trip! Unlike Taormina, this city makes it easier to move around, it is more business oriented and less touristic. What I loved the most here was the Giardino Bellini which is huge and absolutely gorgeous. This public garden has the real Sicilian colours and textures, you will see various bright flowers, trees and amazing fountains.
As for my look during the little trip to Catania, I have chosen a monochrome green dress from Zara which is extremely cute, yet the details in the back make it rather sexy! My loved Dolce&Gabbana Sicily bag added more tenderness to the look as it has that sophisticated light pink colour.
