Autumn coats: one way to do it

Although, the Kira Plastinina brand went bankrupt after only nine years of being on the market, I think they had some really good stuff. Whereas for nine years in a row, this business was never profitable, and losses only varied in volume from year to year, I still think that the problem was about their marketing strategy rather than the clothes they made.

5 things you should do before marriage

Sorry romantics, but love alone is not enough. Nor is a steadfast commitment to staying together when love is absent or one-sided—that’s just a recipe for a lifetime of misery.

Ultimately, marriage is about relating, and the key to forging a successful, lasting bond is knowing before you tie the knot how you and your partner relate when you’re not in courtship mode, and that means getting a handle on how you handle challenges together. If you’ve gone through some rough spots while dating and come out stronger, that’s a good indication your marriage will survive.

But no one likes to be tested, and how do you check someone’s challenge response without intentionally introducing trouble?

Leaving the perfect boyfriend

It’s twice as exhausting to go to war with yourself than with anybody else. You’re fueling both fronts, strengths are equal and no one falls without outside intervention. I fought this war four years ago, when I broke up with the perfect boyfriend.

What are we blessed or doomed (you tell me) to wear in the next 3 to 6 months

This season, it seems designers are trying to make up for all the bad weather ahead of us or perhaps trying to take our minds away from all the bad crazy that’s been going on around the world. Whatever the raison d’être, we have quite an intensely colored, extravagant, floral, sparkly fashion season upon us. There are so many leading trends of the moment that it seems this season begins with a past years’ graduates’ reunion as it’s “all in” and “none out” for the cold weather fashion trends.

Pastime paradise

I’m finally home after a two-week holiday by the sea. Mentally I’m still there daydreaming about the careless life in the sun. Things at home are not exactly as I might have hoped for the moment so I’d rather take advantage of the small window of opportunity left to stay a bit behind. So in this post I’ll be doing some more summer outfits before skipping to the multi-layered season of the year.

You can never be over elegant

One of my favorite brands when it comes to elegance preserving the touch of originality is Ted Lapidus. Their selection surprises me every season as I never go out of their boutique empty-handed. If you’re having one of those very lady-like days, yet you’re not keen on looking as if you’re headed for a Buckingham Palace dinner, then I suggest you check this brand out. I, myself like elegance. As Chanel said, it never goes out of style. Elegance has modesty as one of its main components and modesty always arouses seduction (and that’s what we’re all secretly after, right?). Still I avoid conservatism at all costs.

Taking my vitamin Sea

Lying in the sun, having a beer, breathing in the smell of the sea, and I really start feeling all the self-motivational crap I hear from life coaches every day. Life is beautiful, each day is a miracle and other cliché lines that sound very artificial to say the least when you get up at 7am to the same concrete surroundings, city jams and yes, even the morning coffee in the same place every day can lose its magic.
