Shoe trend alert: sliders



 LONDON

I remember when I was going in primary school, we all had to change our shoes to slippers to wear on a school ground. Some of students chosen to wear crocs, some of them wear balerina type of shoes and some of them wear slippers. 

Looking at remembering the old times at school, it was just so funny how the "trend" and bits of pieces of what has been old fashion back at that time to make it a hit trend for the season, right?
Now we don't need to feel embarrassed to be wearing those shoes out at all. Currently we are witnessing the revolution of the comfy sneakers as our day to day shoes out. From open slippers, embroidery to furry slippers. 

I have purchased these silver pairs with the idea of wearing them on my upcoming beach trip. However, I didn't hesitate and try to combine them with a casual day-wear as well. And to be honest, they are very comfortable to wear and easy to combine too. 

Do you like this trend? What kind of sliders or slippers do you prefer? - open ones, closed ones, classical ones or crazy ones?

The summer joy



 LONDON

It is always so pleasing what a heat hits the stereotypical rainy London. When the sun is out, you are just kicked with so much energy and positivism and don't know where to start (or at least my case). 

Can't believe that it is already middle of June already. The other day, I have been thinking and reflecting on the half of year that has passed like a water (like, seriously?)

Every year we are wishing for summer to come faster, and now? Didn't even notice how the time flies and summer is already here! Summer usually tend to be the time full of activities, new adventures and time for myself. However, since last year, I can not say the same now. However, I am trying to be as much as productive as before (or even more) as well as squeeze or fun activities in between duties. I love that we never stop learning and evolving. Do as much things as you love, go explore many places as you can and never be afraid of doing something new. Because your inner self can surprise you!

I am happy to announce, that this month of June, I am soon heading off to Spain. Where exactly and what I will be doing there, follow my Instagram or Twitter for stories and news!

5 amazing prom dresses trends you will fall in love with*

Here we come again to this time of the year, to the prom season. Short prom dresses, long, lace, V neck, backless, strapless, red prom dresses or cheap prom dresses... you name the style or any criteria you might have to choose the perfect fitting dress. Whatever your mood, taste or body fits, I been inspired by an annual Met Gala event and picked up 10 amazing prom dresses from Aisle Style. Aisle Style is an online destination focusing on all kind of dresses, whether it a prom dress, wedding dress, cocktail dress, day dress or evening dresses.

The annual fashion event - Met Gala, takes place in New York brings many inspirations and key trends ideal for prom season. What is your favourite prom dresses for 2017?
These events and evenings are the special rare occasions, where a girl can feel like a total princess. Hence, a unique dress helps you to highlight the evening. Choosing a right dress is important in order for you to feel good for the rest of the event! What would you pick?

1. Show some skin
Showing some skin a decent way through small details of the dress such as backless dress or strapless dresses or through sheer materials is a way of seduction and emphasis on feminity.



2. Keep it hot
Red is associate to a sexy, hot colour. Thus, to boost your confidence or to highlight a simple dress, choose red to go for it. A quick tip, try to stick to a red from head to toe. From jewellery to nails.


3. Splits and cleavages
Show some legs through cleavages or splits on dresses. A perfect choice for somebody who is not daring, showing some legs through a dress movement will be a great match. However, look for a midi cleavage or split, don't go too high.



4. Girl power
Dresses are the weapon of girls. It doesn't always highlight the curves and show seducing parts of the body, but also it sets up the ego and the power. As like any clothing, whatever type of style you go for, you are setting up yourself an image already. Whether a cute, girly style or bold and sassy style. 
Why not go for a bit serious and formal style for the evening?


5. 50 shades of yellow
Yellow in any shades is the key colour of this Spring/Summer season for any skin colour. Makes you highlight from the crowd and memorize the key event of the year. If you are bored of beige, nude, black, white, red, blue and all those typical decent dress colour, then go for the variety of shades of different colour pallet.

Drop off shoulder top styling 2: Pastel colours



 LONDON

I rarely wear soft colours. But when the sun is out, it can make miracles. For this outfit I went for my white culottes that I own for a while already and wore them like twice or three times. Paired with drop down baby pink drop down blouse and to make the whole day comfy, I went for Converse.

Looking at my wardrobe now, sometimes I am saying to myself that I need more colours to add in. But then it ends up by adding more black pieces. Just well..

5 things to remember when planning a weekend getaway


Working full time restrict me in so many ways in travelling. Limited holiday days, only weekend free, more exhausted after working week and money become an issue too.

Yet, I am still trying to plan and book weekend getaways as much as I can. Just because that excitement at the end of the week is motivating as well as the exploration of totally new things. However, it can be very tiring, especially it feels like you going non stop. Thus, planning a trip for relaxation is a good way as well to get out of the stress zone and busy lifestyle in your city. But don't get me wrong. I am not saying that the only way you can get a rest is by getting out somewhere. Resting in your own city is also a brilliant way to not rush into things. Because once you are abroad, you are tempted to do things and see things.

However, if you have decided to plan a weekend getaway, here are 5 things to remember when you come to planning!


1.  Check calendar
Check you agenda in advance before booking something, just because it is cheap on that weekend. How many times we forgot somebody's birthday, forgot that we have a deadline approaching or we have forgot that we have promised to somebody to catch up. Also do check a calendar for any bank holidays! Check if you are all good to be leaving on Friday at that time and if you are all good to be coming back on Sunday night or Monday morning on that time. You don't wanna miss any important meetings next day or look like zombie for your next working day.

2. Create a rough itinerary
Whether it is for a chill break, to see new things, to visit a friend or just a spontaneous trip, you should clarify your purpose of going somewhere for the weekend. It will not only help you to plan and book stuff ahead, but also it will help you to save your time by knowing how you will spend that weekend and make every minute of it worth it. I tend to write down places I'd like to see, coffee shops I'd like to visit or shops I want to check. I'd like to make sure that I check "cool" places in advance and plan my time there so I can manage to do and see whatever I wanted.

3. Search for suitable destinations for a weekend
You are travelling for 2-3, max 4 days. Try to check destinations that are big enough for a weekend. Depending of course if you have been there or if it is a first time. However, you don't want to be overwhelmed and be in rush to squeeze everything in that time. Read more here if you would like to know what cites are great to consider for a weekend break in Europe. I prefer to pick either cities I have been and want to explore more or smaller cities that are just enough for a weekend first time visits.

4. Be flexible
Be flexible is a key thing how to travel cheap. Be flexible on time and destination. Check various combinations on how to get there and on different weekend dates. It is always great to check some inspiration, have friends around or read travel blogs on how to travel more effectively and efficiently. I tend to check flights and cheap destinations through Skyscanner or by subscribing to airline's newsletters to be aware of any deals and offers. I make a list of various dates, prices and destinations and then check what is the best out of all.

5. Set a budget
At the end of the day, it is only a weekend trip. You do not necessary need to spend hell a lot of money on this trip, because you still would like to save on a bigger vacation, right? Set up a budget and track your spending. It is easy to get loose, just because you are somewhere else on a trip. But don't forget, it is just a weekend getaway, so don't let this small trip burn your budget for a month!
