White Pants and Black Top

DSC_7388

This May, I’m keeping it casual yet classy for a day time stroll in Brooklyn Park. Mixing black and white gently pushes us into spring with a clean, crisp look that I like to dress up with jewelry. I love this chic combination, especially for relaxing get-togethers with friends.

Sunday Look

Last month was probably the craziest month in the year. It was not easy to combine all the responsibilities. As a result, I somewhat neglected the blog entries. I apologize for that and  promise to make up for it as best as I can : -) .

Homemade Body Scrub & Oil

DSC_4416

I always associate the transition period between winter and spring with the dry skin, not only on the face but also on the body. Dry, sometimes even scaly skin is a sign of lack of adequate hydration, vitamins and minerals. Cold air outside, hot and dry air at home is certainly not helping to maintain proper moisture in the skin.

Lake Tahoe Ski Gateaway

The trip to California was the long-awaited ski getaway. I was busy at work so I did not have too much time for packing and preparation. Everything, as usual, at the last minute. The most important were skis, pants and ski jacket, a helmet, as well as a swimsuit because it was that obvious that in our rented house there will be jackuzzi:-).

Ripped Jeans Outfit

After quite a long break (over a week) it is time for spring outfits. After returning from a vacation, in I was greeted by spring in New York City. The sunny days encourage to leave the house and go for walks after work, and to take off the winter coats, hats and boots for more springy ones. I had promised myself to incorporate more colors in my wardrobe. Today’s post is still in toned shades but starting from the next I’ll try to add more bright colors.

Festing with Chia – Delicate, Chocolate, Vegan Pudding

DSC_4468

This pudding with a delicate flavor and a lot of chocolate is my suggestion for this past Sunday instead of baked goods. Gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and totally delicious dessert, which we can be eaten without guilt as often as you want:-).

For the preparation of 4 desserts you will need:

1 cup of chia seeds

1 liter of coconut milk

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa 100%

1 cup grated coconut or flakes

1/2 cup raw cocoa nibs

1/4 cup coconut covered in dark chocolate

Mix the coconut milk with cocoa so that there are no lumps. Add chia seeds and mix. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 2 h. After this time, put pudding in cups and sprinkle with grated coconut, raw cocoa flakes and coconut covered in chocolate. Serve immediately.

Enjoy :-)

Cold & Sunny Day at Park Slope

DSC_4333

Quiet Saturday without major plans. A regular day off is a time to run errands and do shopping.

After a long and hard week I did not feel like going out of town, and the cold weather didn’t encourage me to spend time outdoors. Today, even the beloved skis were not tempting. Or maybe I am already dreaming about spring ?! :-)

Khaki & Rouge

DSC_4205

The past weeks weren’t very pleasant in terms of the weather. A thick fur-lined jacket, hat and gloves were an indispensable part of an outfit for each day. There has been a deficit of sun, that is why I was glad when I looked out the window in the morning. The temperature has increased, which encouraged me to go out for a walk. I can say that fuchsia color has found its way to my closet, between my lovely grays and black. Especially now, after a long winter, I feel like I want to wear vivid and bright colors more and more often.

Skin Types – How to Identify your Skin Type

DSC_4200 3

Many of us often ask themselves “what else can I do to make my skin look good and healthy?”

 “I apply creams, masks, wash my face twice a day, and my skin is still either dry and has unhealthy color, or shiny with pimples, or has lost its tightness and I begin to see fine lines and dark circles under my eyes”
