Olive Yew Jewelry Giveaway!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Today’s giveaway is from Olive Yew, a swoonworthy North Caroline based handmade jewelry boutique that makes me swoon! All of Angela's designs are beautifully delicate, understated, very feminine, timeless and extremely versatile. The type of jewelry that every girl and woman, no matter her style, would love to wear!

Today, Angela is offering one lucky person a chance to win one of her designs. The awesome part: the winner can choose their favourite piece from her entire shop. I would pick one of those two necklaces or those earrings. Also, this little ring is a must have this summer, don't you think?

Denim type of summer

Recently Garance DorĂ© declared it the summer of the denim skirt and I totally agree! No matter where you look, they are everywhere. Short and distressed, long and high-wasted, midi and baggy or simply tight and chic! I especially love mine with striped V-necks or chambray tucked-in shirts, but I'm thinking about pairing it up with a simple denim top sometime this week. What do you think? What's your denim skirt of choice? xo

P.S: Also, denim shorts + don't wash your denim, just freeze it instead:)
P.P.S: A beautiful and totally sassy GIVEAWAY Wednesday is coming up!

On The Edge.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Yowza, how incredible are those photographs? I’m the first one to admit that I have a huge fear of heights, so just looking at those photos gives me butterflies in my stomach. Do you feel the same way?

Anyway, Robert Jahns is the genius photographer who creates those brilliantly manipulated images that are meant to take your breath away. I think he did a pretty awesome job, since I can't stop looking at them:) Would you be brave enough to get that close to the edge? Which one is your favourite? xo

P.S: Rooftopping and do you remember those?
P.P.S: Would you dare?

Tangerine Summer Lips: Thumbs up or down?

Ever since last spring I've been wearing my trusty orangey-red lipstick almost daily, but recently I've been dying to upgrade to the bolder and now oh-so popular tangerine shade. A few days ago while wondering if I can even pull it off, I read that the way to not be intimidated by tangerine shades is thinking of them as a heightened coral. So this week I'm planning to ask my friend if I could try her lipstick in tangerine dream for a day to see how it feels before getting my own. Do you wear tangerine? What's your favourite orange shade? xo

P.S: Roarrrrange :)
P.P.S: Supposedly it looks awesome with summer black.

For A Good Night Sleep

Do you ever have trouble sleeping? Especially in this heat, I’ve been having the hardest time falling asleep. I tend to toss and turn all night long and wake up very tired the next morning. So recently just before bedtime, I started massaging the soles of my feet with lavender oil and I already see a huge difference. Supposedly rubbing lavender oil on your feet ensures a very quick absorption into your bloodstream that soothes your nerves and relaxes you in an instant while inducing sleep. Try it, it’s awesome!

Do you know any great uses of essential oils? Do you use them? (Hope everyone had a jolly good weekend. Good to be back). xo

P.S: Miracle travel mist.
P.P.S: How to never have another junk food craving and how to fuel your day.

Cheers to the weekend! What are you up to? Balazs' good friend flew in yesterday for a short visit, so we are planning to spend the next three days playing tour guides. The plan is to wander around the city, eat countless cups of ice cream (+ those pops) and catch a movie or two. How about you? Darlings, I will see you back here on Tuesday morning, but in the meantime, here is a bunch of cool links for you to enjoy!

I want to be friends with Brit Marling. Isn't she the coolest?
