Fall is in the air! And now, what to wear?

Hello guys!

As I've mentioned in my previous post, since a few days ago,  I've been feeling that Fall is here, especially when I look outside of my window and see a bed of leaves, led to my garden by the wind.

With such a sudden arrival of colder season, I find it a bit challenging to jump from my summer clothes into as equally stylish fall clothes.
The first thing that comes in my mind is layering, and then I also thing about appropriate outerwear.

Stylish outerwear can really make your outfit updated and trendy, you don't actually need to go and buy tons of new clothing pieces to keep up with the latest trends in fashion.

I suggest looking for promotions and good deals when purchasing your new coat or jacket. Those are the items that can be a bit more pricey, so it's always nice to have a little bit of discount!

Black Friday is usually when I search for good deals. I already have one item high on my priority list, but I'm waiting patiently to see if I can get a bit on discount on it.

Black Friday women's outerwear clothing  that I recommend are these gorgeous pieces:

This faux fur coat is too amazing to pass on! A lot of fashion stores offer similar clothing items, but this particular one is available in different colors (Which one is your fave? I'm debating between the pink and icy white!)

Another super cool item is this aviator jacket!

This one is warm and cozy and at the same time very cool and stylish! I have similar ones in beige, and blue and I wear them both every Fall season. This particular colour is also gorgeous, but I need to remind myself that I already have two very similar jackets :-) But I can still put it here as a recommendation, because it's something that I have and love to wear!

Are you curious to see some Cyber Monday warm coats on sale that I spotted on-line?

This fluffy black coat is very chic and I love the fact that it's longer so it's great for cold days of late Fall.
You can wear it with many different things, you'll always look stylish and put together!

I recommend you this leopard print, fuzzy and warm coat, because I have a very similar one in my closet and yes, I've had it for many years.
I love to wear it to spice up my outfit, when I'm wearing something plain and simple underneath.

Fashionme is the on-line web store where I got most of my inspiration from. They have really stylish, trendy and up to date pieces at very affordable and competitive prices.
If you're on a lookout for a nice jacket, or coat to warm up and stay cool, this is one shopping destination you can't miss :-)

Let me know what is your fave piece from this inspiration board?
How is your style going to be like this Fall season, and, do you enjoy layering and being creative with your outfits (I'd say, this is one of the benefits of Fall!).

I'm Still On Vacation Mood OOTD

Hello beauties!

How was your summer? It feels like fall here in Italy these days, and I'm feeling a bit nostalgic already, thinking how summer has come to an end. Anyway, I spent very nice couple of weeks at my favorite island in Croatia, Rab. I already mentioned how that's my favorite place for summer vacations as it's very relaxing, (almost) always sunny & warm, and with beautiful beaches and breathtaking sites!

In this post I'm going to share with you an outfit that I wore to the beach - do let me know how you like it in the comments below.

In my wardrobe I have many beach dresses and this summer, I liked this red one with floral print. I got it somewhere online, for just a couple of $$.
It's a bit see through, so it's ideal as a bikini cover up. I like it because it's flowy and breezy so it's ideal for summer heat! I'm also loving the cute flower print which is on trend.
I accessorized this look with my must-have summer jewelry: colorful bracelets, seashells and a wooden Konifer watch.

I pulled my hair up in an effortless bun and tied a silk scarf by Guess.
This summer, silk scarves in your hair are a big trend, and you can wear them many different ways: sometimes I wrap them around my pony tail, or sometimes I'll incorporate them into my braid. They're so chic and easy solution when you don't really know what to do with your hair!

With this cover up, I also wore my cute heart print denim shorts (old, from H&M), and Havaianas (also quite old, but still my ideal footwear for the beach!)

Here's a little family selfie. We've had such a lovely holiday and we already miss being at the island of Rab! Here we are at the Gonar location, one of our favorite spots at the island, along with Suha Punta. If you ever have a chance to visit Croatia, make sure to stop by Rab, I'm sure that you'll love it!

I still have quite a few summery ootd posts to share with you, so I hope you don't mind (considering the fact that autumn days are already here!). I was quite busy with work and life so I haven't had a chance to upload sooner :-/ 
I've been struggling a bit lately with keeping up with blogging/ vlogging, as I'm a working mum of a toddler! But I do still have a passion and will to film/ blog, so I'll try to find a way to keep doing what I love! Sometimes it can be quite frustrating, not being able to give 100% and create a great quality content that would satisfy the standars I've set for myself, but I just have to remember that I'm doing this out of passion. I don't have a team of people working for me on creating content and promoting it on social medias, and at this point in my life, my ray of sunshine is my little son and he is my top priority! I don't want to miss out on anything, and time really do flies by so quickly and they grow so fast. I want to enjoy him to the fullest. Family first, then comes blog. I hope you understand.

Let me know all about how was your summer and what are you up to this fall?

During the lunch break, I took a peak at the app, and I spotted some nice bits that I quickly added to my basket; it's as simple as that!

Here are some of the items I particularly liked:

This camouflage zipper up army green women's jacket is their new arrival, and super trendy, cool and casual at the same time!

These days I'm very much into casual and comfy, but trendy clothing items. They just work best for me and my lifestyle (speaking from a busy mum's point of view!).
Here is this grey ruched solid color scoop neck women's sweatshirt that I really liked!

Mommy OOTD for the beach

Hey guys!

Since summer is still here, I decided to share with you this quick outfit post that I wore past month at the island of Rab, when I was vacationing there with my little family :-)

These days I don't get time to prepare myself to go out shooting for outfit posts, so I have to make the most out of the situations such as this one (we were going to the beach).

Gosh, please ignore how white I am! I'm just naturally very pale skin, and this summer I didn't even have time to put on a bit of self tanner...anyway, I already made a post in the past, about accepting your natural features and embracing what nature has given you, and the same applies for the colour of your skin!

This pretty floral dress I got this summer at summer sales at H&M, I really like the model, the print, and the fabric it's made of (it's really nice quality).
I also wanted to get this model in white, but they ran out of my size. As this fits quite large, I got it in XS.
My hat and sandals are also new and I got them for less than €5 at summer sales (sunglasses were € 3.99 at Zara, and hat is from H&M).
The sandals are very old (not kidding, I've had them for probably 12 years!) The reason why they are still in a perfect condition is because: 1. I haven't worn them every summer, and, 2. They're made of leather and made in Italy so the quality is unquestionable!

Life with a toddler is super dynamic and sometimes we're exhausted, but we all truly enjoyed our holiday! Our son had so much fun at the beach, exploring, sleeping, bathing in the sea! I already miss those sunny days at the island!

Here it is, my quick OOTD post for today! I finally managed to squeeze it in! My little boy just went to sleep, and my hubby is out for work, so before hitting the bed myself, I said I was going to finish this post! I'm quite tired though, and tomorrow I work, so I can't wait to get some rest (dear son, please sleep tight all through the night! lol!) #mommyblogger

I'll talk to you soon!

Fashion trends for babies and kids

Hello guys!

Today I'm back with a mommy related post; I would like to talk about kids' fashion and recommend you where to get the best deals.
As we all know, kids grow so fast, especially when they're babies! There is really no need in spending loads on kids' clothes, as it's basically waste of money!

When I gave birth to my son, I got many clothes as a gift, but even before he was born, my friends and colleagues who were already mums, gave tons of used clothes to me.
I didn't mind, actually I was grateful, because all these items were in a perfect condition, as brand new, because babies grow out of their clothes so quickly!
I even went to outlets where you can find clothes from past seasons at 70% off (or even more!)
So I was definitely wise when talking about shopping for my baby.

You can also find great deals on-line!

If you're going to give birth in colder months of the year (as I did, in January), you might be interested in newborn baby outerwear 

Here are some super cute jackets for little boys:

Why spending heaps on money on following the trends, when your little one can be just as fashionable even on a budget? Those are all things they're going to be wearing for one season, and then pass it on to another kid!

I have a little boy, but my dear friend has got a baby girl! Popreal has got the cutest newborn baby girl clothes sets
Whether you're buying for your little one, or wanting to make a gift, here are some cute ideas:

It indeed is such a pleasure to dress up your little ones, and create cute outfits for them! Once they grow they'll have their own word in it and you aren't going to be able to push your opinions on them! Which is absolutely normal thing, but that means that now is your moment to be creative and dress them up to your liking! :-)

Do you have a little boy or a girl?
Where do you like to shop for kids' clothes?

Leave me your comments!

How to get best deals from on-line shopping?

Hello guys!

I have to admit, just a couple of years ago, I wasn't that much into on-line shopping. 
I preferred going to the actual stores, seeing the clothes, touching the fabrics, trying everything on...
But, since I became a mum, spending so much time visiting shops and shopping malls became a real luxury to me, as time is hard to find these days!!!
Also, I'm more tired now and less enthusiastic about the idea of spending hours trying on this concept seems quite tiring and stressful to me :-/
Plus, shopping with a newborn baby, or with an energetic toddler is no fun! I don't know how people do it?! These days I like to spend my time and energy on different things, such as my home.

So yes, I can say that when I became a mum, I started discovering the pleasures of on-line shopping!
Not only the fact that pretty much everything is available on line, but also let's aknowledge the fact that there are better deals on-line than in regular stores!

Let's say, coupons; with the right coupon code you can save up quite a bit! As a beauty and fashion blogger and vlogger, I collaborated with many brands that have on-line business, and there wasn't a single brand that didn't give me a discount coupon code to share with my audience, in order to get them some good deal and to invite them to check out their business.
Coupons are indeed a great way of attracting clients and converting them in loyal consumers.

These days, I get most of the things I need on-line: From beauty to fashion, to children or household related things.
Before I place my order I always check to see if there's some discount code floating around on the internet :-) If you find that many of them aren't valid, or are expired, you should go to Hasoffer Coupons Online 2018 that guarantees you best deals and coupons.
Indeed, they have 34933 offers from 1933 stores, so why not start saving now? ;-)

Here you'll find anything from clothing, accessories, beauty, shoes and electronics, and to make things easier for you, you can start your search by category.

A lot of coupons will give you a free shipping, which is always great, as shipping cost can sometimes be quite significant. Other coupons will stand for a certain percentage of discount on your order and we all like a good deal!

Here is where you can find Real Fashion Clothing Promo Codes Online so make the most out of it!

These days, I'm not spending that much on myself (as I already have plenty of clothes, accessories etc.), but with each new season I like to add a few fashionable pieces into my wardrobe and make it a bit more up to date!
Besides trendy clothing items, I actually am on a lookout for comfortable sneakers! I spend long hours at work and I'm in a constant movement, so by the end of a day my feet and my back tend to hurt quite a lot, if I don't wear a high quality footwear.
This season, I'm debating between Adidas and Nike sneakers, so if you have any experience with both please let me know which one I should go for!

Yes, I already found a place where you can get Free Real Adidas Coupons Codes and I'm definitely interested in taking advantage of that!

Nike sports shoes are also great, and the cost can be quite high too! As I'm talking about footwear that I'm going to be using for work mostly, I really want to find something that's reasonably priced so I searched for Free Real Nike Coupons Codes 2018 to see if I can get updated, and of course, best deals! :-)

If you're a fan of on-line shopping as I am (and these days, let's face it, we're all oriented towards that direction), I assume this post is going to be helpful!

Let me know what are your favourite on line shopping destinations?

I'll talk to you soon!

Seashell Jewelry Trend

Hello beauties!

I'm sure you already know that one of the hottest trends this summer is seashell jewelryThis actually isn't a new trend, it's just "resuscitated" from years ago! Over the past few summers it was kind of forgotten, but this summer it's back and I couldn't be happier!
All the fashion magazines and big influencers report that seashell jewellery is the biggest summer trend of 2018. Prada had some lovely pieces to show at their fashion show and many other prestigious and lesser known brands followed.

Now you can find some really pretty pieces at Stradivarius at very affordable prices.



I actually LOVE to wear seashell jewelry in summertime, especially when I go to the beach.
I always like to wear accessories with my bikinis and when I wear jewelry made of seashells, I don't have to worry about it getting ruined by the sea and salt! (It's seashells natural habitat!)

Over the years, my seashell jewelry collection has grown, so in this post I wanted to share with you my favorite pieces and also tell you a bit about them.

One of the first ever seashell jewelry pieces that I bought were these two necklaces!
The left one I bought at the island of Krk in Croatia and I love to wear it as a bracelet! It's long enough to be wrapped around my wrist a few times and it looks even better worn as a bracelet than as a necklace (as a necklace it's nice when layered with some other pieces).

The necklace on the right I bough at my hometown Rijeka in Croatia, many years ago, while I was still living there, in a little accessories shop that had just opened and had really cool pieces at very affordable prices.

Other very old piece in my collection is this seashell anklet. I bought it probably in 2002 or 2003 at the island of Rab in Croatia, when I was vacationing there with my Mum and my best friend.
I've never worn any other jewelry piece as much as this one! This anklet becomes a part of me every summer and I rarely take it off!
The seashell ring is from a local open market here in Italy, I bought it in a little town close to Venice, where we used to live.

It reminded me on the ring Samantha from Sex and the City wore in one of the opening scenes of the SATC the movie!

This beautiful jewelry set was gifted to me for my birthday a couple of years ago, by one of my dear friends.

I absolutely adore the bracelet, it's super pretty! The cool thing about the ring is that it can fit any ring size and it's made of little white beads and "madreperla."

I also love these earrings and the brooch.
They're made of "madreperla" and alpaca. I've had them for years and years and they're still as pretty as the first day I bought them. 
The brooch and earrings set I bought when I was fresh out of high school in Opatija, a little touristic town close to my hometown.

The disc earrings I bought when I first moved to Italy, in one ethnic shop that was selling unique jewelry from natural materials such as wood, seashells etc. I remember the sales assistant telling me that she was surprised I picked these ones, because madreperla here wasn't perfect, it had some black stains. And I answer to her that's the way the nature is, actually perfect in its imperfection!

These bits are costume jewelry and madreperla that I bought years ago, both in Rijeka, Croatia (at least I think!), I love them because they're colorful and very summery.

They go well with those easy breezy type of summer dresses.

Last but not least, are these two necklaces! The first one (on the left), I bought at the island of Krk (oh gosh, at least I think so, it's been a while!) As you can tell, all these pieces are well loved, and many are older than 15 years!
The other necklace I picked for my hubby at H&M Men's dept. but he never actually wore it (he isn't the type of guy that would enjoy wearing jewelry!). But, this year I told him, the day we start our vacations, we'll put these necklaces, as a little sign to relax and finally enjoy summer time.

These are my most worn / favorite pieces from my seashell collection! I do have a few more, but they're waiting for me in my house in Croatia.

Do you like this trend?
Do you already own some seashell jewelry?

xoxo from Italy,
