I am actually so freaking excited to write this post, cause this time I have something new to show you from Avon. They came up with a brand new make up line called "Mark". The face of this line is a famous lithuanian actress, TV personality Beata Tiškevič. This line carries an awesome message to every single woman out there: Avon believes in releasing the creativity and crazyness that is in every single one of us and showing it to the world. So for me, this line looks a little bit more brave and unexpected.


Firs of all, the packaging is what catches your attention straight away. It is a bit more complicated than the usual, sleek Avon packaging, but I absolutely adore it. And they did a pretty damn good job with their PR releasing this time. They sent me some of their products attached to this beautiful white frame with the advertisement pictures of their line. 
First impression of the products was actually really good. I instantly fell in love with the consistency of their "Berry Cute" lipstick. The shade itself is a bit daring for me, but that's the whole point of the line, right? Also, I knew right away that I would love the liner they came up with. I have had the same shaped eyeliner from their previous collections and it was one of the best ones I have ever tried. The tip of the liner is exactly like a marker, whitch makes it way easier to apply a thin line close to my lashes.

The only drawback for me is the mascara. But that didn't surprise me, knowing that there are probably like three mascaras in the whole world that actually look good on me and curl my lashes. I have extremely straight lashes which need a lot of work put into them to keep the curl all day. It sucks, because they are naturally long, but as I've said, there is only a couple of mascaras that are able to actually keep the curl for me all day.
So all in all, I enjoy the products a lot. I still need some more time to test everything out completely, but the first impression is positive.


This line is also ready to help one of you guys become a cover star for "Panele" magazine! If you want to see yourself on the September's issue, join the #yeschallenge and upload your own picture which would show off your "YES" moment to Instagram or Facebook, and stay tuned for the news!

Only month and a half to go until summer!
There is not much time left to get ready for the summer season. Time is ticking, so if you are determined to reach some kind of body goals, change your wardrobe for next season or clear out your skin - better start now if you haven't already!

Personally for me, summer associates with clear skin and minimal makeup - especially when there is a bit of tan going on. I feel like any kind of foundation or high coverage concealer is kind of left out and pushed deep in the back of a drawer at this time of the year. Having a clear and tanned skin requires minimal effort for your face to look good. A little bit of mascara, a touch of highlighter and a lip balm is all you need to look your best in summer. But of course, achieving beautiful, non-damaged skin look is a bit challenging. Good for those who are not used to having a bad skin day, but what to do for the majority of us who are always battling against some type of spots, marks or discolorations? I recommend you reading this article - https://blog.stylewe.com/10-step-korean-beauty-skincare-routine/ which tells you exaclty what to do and what products to use to make your skin look it's best.

Also, to fully get ready for the summer season, you have to renew your wardrobe, am I right? Especially swimwear! StyleWe community was super helpfull to me and let me use their website and products as a base for this post. So I am using them as an example to show you what kind of affordable swimwear I have my eyes on!



I am most drawn to two-piece biki sets, because I feel like one-piece ones cover a bit too much and you get those funny tan lines after spending some time in the sun. So I chose these three different sets to show you as an example of what I wish for getting this season. A simple, solid color set and something more fun, like printed designs. If you see something that catches your eye on their website, it is the perfect timing for you to try out your luck and participate in a giveway, because StyleWe is giving away 150$ coupon to shop on their website (Giveway 150$ shopping coupon). 
If you don't find anything for yourself on StyleWe, there are some other websites that sell good guality swimsuits like justfashionnow.com. See whats best for you and start your shopping spree!

Hope I've helped you a bit by sharing some useful info to get yourself excited and ready for summer! Leave some more tips and tricks in the comments below, if you have any! xx

Hello, beauties!
I remember posting these kind of flat lays on daily basis. I guess it was about three or four years ago when I posted my very first beauty flat lay. Oh man, the editing, vibe and products in particular have changed so much through time. So, digging into this old-school blog post vibe, I decided to update my kind of essentials and dedicate this post to some of my favorite bits and bops.


I'm going to start with a fashion magazine, which is L'Officiel this time. I wouldn't say that L'Officiel is my number one favorite fashion magazine, but I couldn't resist not getting one for that kind of price. So yes, I can definitely ensure that a magazine is a must for me. I don't get to flick through them every day, but there is an online form of it that helps. It's basically the best place for me to find inspiration, keep up with new trends and spend leisure time.
The lace top trend has been there for a while now, and I won't lie - I'm obsessed with it. Wearing a spaghetti strap top over a turtle neck, layering it with other tops or simply on it's own looks so effortless and sheek. I got mine from Zaful and it is also a velvety one!
Aaaand, there is a lipstick. I was never the one to wear crazy bright lip colors on my lips. I actually thought that they don't really suit me and my lip shape, but I have been more into that look recently. Not for everyday, of course, but for a date or a night going out I've been reaching for my oldie red lipstick from Avon in a color "Adoring Love"
The only two pieces of accessories I've been wearing for some time now are rings and watches. My one and only ring that I have been holding on to since I got it is from Pandora. It's a simple, delicate, silver one with the tiniest sparkles. Love that it goes with basically everything. And my watch is also a silver one, just to match things up. It's not an expensive one, I actually bought it in Scotland about half a year ago and I'm still wearing it.
That's about it for my favorite pieces at the moment, would love hear what yours are!

I'm pretty sure that every single lady out here has thought/dreamed about their "big day" at least once in their lifetime. Even if it's only for a second. We have all been there: wishing what our wedding dress would look like. Of course, I sometimes dream a little too big and imagine my dress being from Vera Wang's or Elie Saab's latest collections. But in reality, there are many sites that sell wedding dresses for those, who are on a budget. It's too soon for me to talk about it, but if there are any of you out there who are ready to take this huge step in your life, I am more than happy to share some dress suggestions with you.
The website called amodabridal.com.au is offering a perfect dress for every future bride for a tolerable price. This site is based in Australia, but of course, it ships everywhere in the world, so you don't have to worry about that. It offers you cheap wedding dresses online, which don't look cheap, so that's a win, right? There is a huge variety to choose from, doesn't matter what you are looking for: vintage, short, plus-sized, they will probably have it. Also, you can get yourself a dress even cheaper if you use sale codes, which they are providing. 
So for anyone who wants to look the prettiest on their important day, but doesn't have the exact budget they wish for, I think it's the perfect solution to this problem. If you know anyone, who needs this kind of help, don't hesitate to share this post with them!

And there comes the marathon of fashion weeks once again. As always, the thing that excites me the most is street style. As I have mentioned in my previous street style posts, this type of fashion is kind of more interesting and important to me than the actual shows. The amount of crazy, unique and brave people walking down the fashion week streets sometimes even overtake the attention of what is happening indoors. And I know that there are many complaints about how these bloggers and influencers dress this type of way only for the camera attention, but I genuinely do not care. I'm surfing through fashion websites to hunt for inspiration and to admire the sense of style of other people, even if they dress like that just for one or a couple of days.
So take a look to some of my favorite street style moments from this years London Fashion Week, captured by talented Sandra Semburg.

Personally, I hate this time of the year. It's almost depressing for me. The weather seems to be kind of all over the place also - one day it looks like the spring is finally coming up and then the day later it gets so cold, that you are unable to feel your body as soon as you step out the house. 
I mean, I can't really complain about this month specifically - the most romantic and important dates take part in the middle of this month. But that doesn't mean that there aren't days when I just really need to take a break.
And speaking about taking breaks, probably my most favorite way to do that is incredibly simple - taking a bath and giving myself a little spa treatment. I feel like it is the best way to really refresh and give some attention to yourself. 
And how do I like to do it? First and the most important part is bubbles. I can't imagine taking my bath without them now. Especially, if they make my bath smell good. What I use for that is Luxurious Bath Elixir from Avon. Actually, everything I use to treat my skin is from Avon at the moment, because they kindly sent me some of their products. And this elixir is one of them.


Next step is taking care of my face. I am simply addicted to face masks, won't lie. And this one with crushed pearls and sea algae from Avon's "Caribbean Escape" line is what I am using at the moment. I let myself enjoy it quite often, just because it is very light on the skin. This one you have to massage deeply and leave to sit for a bit. It basically helps to brighten and freshen up your skin, love it!


The last thing I do after jumping out of my bath is moisturizing my face. I do this daily with regular moisturizer, but when I feel the need to mix it up a little bit - this illuminating facial treatment comes in handy. What I was the most surprised about when I used it for the first time, is that in the morning it left my skin literally glowing. This treatment/moisturizer has a tiny little hint of glitter in it. It looks so light and just enough to make my skin glow. 


So yeah, these little steps are my go-to for taking a break once in a while. Don't forget to check out this Planet Spa "Caribbean Escape" line, it really is worth trying!
What are your rituals for recharging your batteries? Would love to know!

It's magical.
Haute Couture is the best place and time for a designer to prove what he or she is really capable of. And this time Karl Lagerfield showed it in the most classic, simple and yet jaw-dropping way. I think you will agree with me that the runway couldn't scream Chanel any louder. Mirrored walls and floors, thousands of reflections brings us back to where it all started - the iconic Coco Chanel's atelier stairs. Karl managed to give us all a fresh new collection, keeping it at it's classics - from the design of a runway, to head to toe looks.
The show started with perfectly tailored Chanel suits, spiced up with a feminine hat and belt combination. What surprised me the most, is that one of the models dressed in one of these suits, was actually a lithuanian. It feels so surreal that a woman from my country had a chance to walk in this kind of show. As it went on, sparkles and sequins got their time to shine (literally). Flattering silhouettes of silver dresses showed off models bodies in a very delicate way: deeper necklines balanced perfectly with the ankle lenght designs. Later on, feathers dominated their way to the grand finale. I was pleasingly surprised to see Lily-Rose Depp, the face of Chanel, walking in the most beautiful light pink wedding dress. The ending couldn't be more beautiful.
All in all, this collection got me masmerized. Karl's hard work for this Haute Couture collection was clearly reflected in the walls of this runway, just the same as Coco's once did on hers.

Accessories should never be forgotten. You can make any outfit look good with the right style and amount of accessories. My favorite and most practical one has to be a good pair of sunnies. And this time I decided to show you my beloved ones from Zaful. This rose gold pair of sunglasses have been by my side since the start of autumn, I believe, and I still can't get enough of them. Pretty, right?
