If I had a choice to buy something from a new Gucci Collection or Vintage shop, I would definitely go for the second option, without a doubt! And not because I do not like Gucci but because my passion for vintage clothing, accessories and interior pieces is so strong that I’m ready to trade any new item there is!

My Top 3 rules for Vintage Shopping:

1. Class Photo Sep 01, 8 49 44 PM

Going for classic pieces is always a win! No matter how much you’re ready to spend on something really worthy – it will always be in style and match pretty much everything.

2. Quality Photo Jan 25, 11 52 48 AM

Look for the items that are in great to good condition. As much as I love pieces that hold a story to tell and have character to them, I also want them to look presentable and eye-catching.

This is why we love vintage in the first place! I literally cannot stand wearing something that EVERYONE has!! (Remember that Gucci T-Shirt?!!) Find the pieces that represent you specifically!

Vintage Shopping can be exciting and stressful at the same time. It is very important to find credible suppliers, such as KOBALIYA.



I love shopping there for accessories and clothing. As far as interior / design pieces go – yard sales and fairs is the way to go!


sunny days



I have not been feeling myself lately…
I’ve put so much pressure on 2018 that being in a rush to implement it ALL, I almost lost my mind along the way.
Being in a state when nothing I do really satisfies me. Sleepless nights of overthinking and undervaluing myself, feeling like everything is worthless.. the whole WORLD and everything in it doesn’t have a point and … why are we all here?! What is our mission? What are we supposed to do and what is the right, perfect way of doing it? I got too caught up in analyzing WHY I don’t accomplish certain things that I completely forgot to focus on what I already HAVE! What I already accomplished and how grateful I am! How proud I am of myself!
The moment I took my time to STOP and just experience, feel with my entire existence HOW grateful I am – everything’s changed. Life is beautiful! I befriended myself all over again.


ALTERRE Interchangeable Shoes



I was invited to the early access of RW17 Collection by ALTERRE in NYC. Unfortunately, I could not make it in time because of my work schedule 😦  However…Not sharing this brand, creators behind it and the idea of it – would be a crime!

I am very hard to impress, I must admit. But this is one of the cases!


Our shoes are inspired by strong women and the many roles they lead. We’ve even named our looks after women we admire. Muses include headstrong socialite Elsie de Wolfe and Billie Holiday, who inspiringly overcame a tough childhood and became a jazz icon.

Since we are inspired by strong women, we give 5% of our profits to Restore NYC. Restore is a non-profit organization that provides long-term rehabilitation to victims of sex-trafficking in New York,  which is one of the largest global markets for human trafficking.  By giving these ladies an education, a place to stay for up to a year and placement with local and national companies, Restore breaks the cycle of abuse these women endure, and gives them a fresh start.

Hello, Beautiful ❤

Today we are going to be reviewing BUXOM Full-On Lip Cream, which is claimed to be ‘the best lip gloss EVER’ by a lot of beauty influencers!

BUXOM Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian

Buxom lip cream comes in 15 shades to choose from and retails for $20.00 in SEPHORA


Its consistency is quite thick and it IS really sticky! Surprisingly, it did not throw me off in this exact product (that is the main reason I am not a fan of lip glosses in the first place)!

Because it is very thick, it does not bleed whatsoever & looks beautiful on the lips giving a stunning glossy effect and a gorgeous rich tint. And because it is sticky – it lasts a very very long time no matter how many times you rub your lips!buxom

It does give a strong tingling sensation throughout the entire period of wear, it does not hurt the lips though! It is a very pleasant feeling I must say 🙂 simply because it does feel like a plumping effect ♥

As for the price, of course it is more on a higher side but I do feel like you DO get what you pay for. It does not require re-application, hence it will last you quite a long time & it IS an amazing product of a high quality with great and safe ingredients!

I do recommend you trying it out, you can test it in the store first and then make up your mind about the shade that suits you the most, how it feels on your lips etc. That’s what I did 🙂
