Denim skirt and leather jacket


I’ve had a love affair with round sunglasses and leather jackets for years maybe. This particular jacket I bought from Stradivarius two or three years ago even though I wasn't sure at all if this is the right model for my body type. In the end it became a favorite of mine and has been one of my go-tos ever since as I have mentioned several times already.
Having a great leather jacket that looks just as good over a flowy summer dress as it does paired with jeans and a tee is essential in every women’s wardrobe and I love this one and this one, similar to the one I’m wearing here. I also really like this pastel pink one and this one with fringes.


I pulled this gorgeous denim skirt since it’s perfect for the transition season. While I might pair it with Converse sneakers and a light top for a party this upcoming summer, it wears just as nicely with a classic leather jacket in my opinion. And as usual I’ve topped it off with my combat boots.

What do you think about this outfit? Is it something you would wear or is it too rock'n'roll for you?

Bow tie


I bought this Stradivarius blazer a few years ago as my first “nice” black blazer purchase. It’s still one of the best pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe and has been one of my go-tos ever since. I could easily say that my black blazer and my denim/ leather jackets are the most-worn outerwear pieces I have. Also, this classic model has proven to pair with basically everything.
Another thing that I currently love is everything lace! I’d been eyeing the exact lace blouse that I'm wearing in this post from Mohito but in blush colour since I saw the pastel lace is very trendy at the moment. It’s the epitome of feminine and delicate and I know if I try it on, I won't be able to walk away without it. It’s definitely a piece that I will wear a lot since it can be combined with nicer accessories for special occasions, while at the same time it works just as well for everyday with simple blue jeans and a jacket. Besides, it has the sweetest velvet bow, which plays beautifully against the dainty lace.


One thing that I always do almost unconsciously is adding a edgier element to the more feminine and elegant looks I wear. There is no exception in this case as you can see I'm wearing my most-worn and beloved combat boots from H&M, last seen on the blog here, but normally worn on a daily basis with pretty much everything.They are not everyone's cup of tea but I love them so very much! 
And last but not least, I could not mention the newest addition to my wardrobe - this amazing quilted chain Mango bag that I have been dreaming of since late autumn. I have been struggling to find the perfect bag for years maybe and this one finally gives me everything I have been looking for.. It is made from delicate quilted fabric, it's spacious enough to put everything I need for the day in it without carrying a small suitcase on my shoulder, it can be worn cross-body or on one shoulder as I prefer and also can be combined with pretty much everything in my wardrobe thanks to its classic model. Pure perfection for a reasonable price.

Skincare


The skin changes during puberty: it becomes thicker, shiny and less soft. The more or less significant blemishes that appear sometimes continue through to adulthood. As I always had acne-prone skin I decided to share with you my favourite products, which I use on a daily basis to maintain my skin's condition. All of these products are by the french brand BIODERMA that offers a new generation of anti-blemish treatments. They act directly on sebum quality thanks to the Fluidactiv® patented complex found in all of the range's products.


The first product I use every evening before going to bed is the Sébium Gel moussant - a purifying gel that gently cleanses and prevents blemishes from the cleansing stage. It's enriched with purifying agents, zinc sulfate and copper sulphate, thanks to which it purifies the skin and limits sebaceous secretion.
 Next I'm cleansing my face with two different micellar waters, but I'm going to tell you more about them in the next Skincare post I'm planning.
And the final step is applying the Sébium Pore refiner correcting concentrate which improves the skin's appearance. Its texture becomes finer, more regular and clearer, and pores are tightened and less visible. The Fluidactiv exclusive patented complex that I already mentioned biologically regulates sebum quality, which keeps pores from becoming clogged and limits the formation of blemishes.


As I wear make-up on a daily basis, I always put on my face the Sébium Mat Control cream before applying foundation. Sébium MAT Control is a moisturising product with 8-hour MAT & SMOOTH technology: instant, deep down results for naturally beautiful skin. Thanks to its ingridients it biologically regulates shine (zinc, vitamin B6), refines skin texture and tightens pores (keratolytic active ingredients and astringent), limits the appearance of blemishes (Fluidactiv patented complex). The skin is matte and smooth, lastingly transformed.

Have you tried any of these products before and what do you think about them?
P.S. If you have sensitive, combination to oily skin, I would strongly recommend these products to you. Give them a try and share your thoughts with me.
P.P.S. As you may already know I'm a pharmacist, so you can ask me all kind of skin and hair related questions.

The Vrana Palace


One of the exciting things about travelling to somewhere new is the newness of everything. While the feelings of unfamiliarity and absence of a routine feel a bit scary, it’s also a fun time to be embracing new surroundings. It also opens your eyes on being more appreciative for the things around us when we're home. There is beauty no matter where you are, whether you live in a city, the country, the suburbs or somewhere in between.
So in the end of 2016, my boyfriend and I headed out to visit one of the handful of historic places around Sofia - the Vrana Palace.
This exact weekend was also our first one that welcomed the brisk mornings that autumn brings. For that reason there weren't that much visitors. At the time of our arrival we noticed a few dozen visitor’s cars parked in the entry, but after a few minutes of roaming the grounds, we realized that the place was big enough to feel like we were the only ones there.


I’m someone who would live in all black outfits almost 24/7. But it still has to have something that pops or makes the outfit have character. The combination of textures and fabrics - silk, leather and a bit of sparkle - all made the look feel much more than just basic black.
I bought this military inspired Zara coat recently for a wedding and it’s still one of the best pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe and has been one of my go-tos ever since, no matter if I'm combining it with a dress, a skirt, basic jeans or leather leggings like in this case.


Leather pants/leggings are almost a year round staple for me, especially on the grey foggy days we’ve been having. A great pair of leather pants will always be chic and timeless, while still adding a little bit of edginess to any look.
I wore mine with the riding boots, which I bought recently too. A black pair of riding boots is one of the items that are worth spending a little bit more money on. Once you find the right pair, you’ll want to live in them and they will become a staple in your wardrobe.


The Vrana Palace is a former royal palace, located on the outskirts of Sofia. I have never visited it before, but I couldn't be happier that we decided to visit it in autumn. I'm sure that it is amazing in spring too with all the blooming flowers and green trees, but in autumn the whole area is something completely surreal! The crisp afternoon air and the colorful foliage that looks like a painting are things that I just can’t get enough of! It’s just what you would imagine from the places like this - incredibly charming and surrounded by the most beautiful fall colors you’ve ever seen.
