Textures

If you are following me on the Instagram lately, you probably saw that I'm renovating my very first apartment and don't have any clue what it would look like at the end. Mixed feelings between Scandinavian coziness and french chicness are giving me a hard time, but hey, that's not a reason for not bringing a wire basket, fluffy cushion or a teaspoon from another country!
And before I start dealing with "which sofa is the best for me" decisions I wanted to share with you one more tip for washing (previous one is for black clothes), and this time it's all about wool and delicates.  I'm obsessed with different textures when it comes to home fabrics so I use Perwoll Wool&Silk liquid detergent to keep all those cushions and blankets soft, fluffy and in a good shape with every wash.
Just be sure to check the washing instructions from the product label before turning on the washing machine or hand washing and dry it carefully afterwards.

The perfect gift







                                                                                             ph. Jelena, me

Honestly, it’s never too late to get a head start on Christmas/NY's shopping! So, forget the fancy candles, gift cards, and other generic gifts, cause I have a much better idea!
For all the females in your life, there’s a lot to be said with a big name in a small package, called: PANDORA. For your mother who always put you first, for your biggest love and toughest critic - sister, for the friend who is always there, aunt, grandmother or for women in your life who deserve a bit of extra attention and gratitude, just because! You don't need an extra reason to make them look and feel great!
PANDORA has been celebrating women’s uniqueness for more than 30 years creating jewellery for personal expression and meaningful gifting and with their latest collections, I firmly believe that you will find that perfect gift to celebrate their greatness whether it's all about one special charm, vintage lookalike earrings or specially designed (by you) bracelet.

Lisbon snapshots


















                                                                                                ph. me

Four months later and I'm ready to share with you some snapshots from Lisbon made during my trip with Parfois back in September.
24h in the city captured by my phone.
Now, you have to wait for me to come back and make a proper tour. Will do, cause this city deserves it, it's amazing!
Get your passport ready, 2017 is just around the corner!




Velvet boots







                                                                                                boots: stradivarius
                                                                                                dress: h&m
                                                                                                faux fur jacket: bershka
                                                                                                jewelry: PANDORA
                                                                                                ph. Jelena


Less really can be more but not when it comes to the latest PANDORA Christmas collection!
This season, jewelry captures the look and feel of a crisp and chilly winter. Stunning textures and dazzling blues, silver and iridescent white illuminate starry constellations and frosted flowers. Inspiration is taken from ice patterns that appear on windows and lakes during wintertime and you can see this stunning scene in couple of my favorite pieces like the stunning sterling silver ring which is inspired by ice crystals and set with radiant faceted blue crystals in different cuts. Or this contemporary necklace pendant which presents an imaginative mix of faceted stones. How cool they are?!
And to match them perfectly with the clothes, I picked white faux fur jacket, silky dress and velvet boots to make this look even more chic. The festive season can start now!
