Monday Enlightenment: how to light up every Monday?

CHANEL-COMPASITION-

Mondays are only for rangers. I came up with that ever since I figured out that personally, I had a hard time myself to cope with transitioning to the first day of the week. I’ve have learned over the years that I just had to find best possible way to brake smoothly into monday.

Hard task, huh? After spending a great relaxing weekend or coming back from weekend traveling, facing Monday can be challenging. That means going back to your routine, back to work, or whatever you normally do that day. The emails start pouring, phone rings, and you don’t know where to start. Everything is irritable, and you expect the rest of the world to cooperate and be nice to you. Even though admitting that there’s no other option in my hands to change that, I do have some tips that have helped me to overcome this “project Monday” otherwise I wouldn’t have the courage to be writing about it, and letting you know that it’s not that bad after all.

 What I do?  – Simple.

– By the end of Sunday I start to digest the fact that the next day is Monday, which means back to reality. 

– I make sure I have everything planned and ready to go. I don’t want to be in a rush that morning to go to work, so I have my outfit ready, my vegan lunch and juice pre-packed, and everything else in order so I don’t stress in the morning.

-I wake up 30 minutes earlier, so I have more time for myself and my delicious green smoothie, longer shower, setting up intention for a day, and lastly taking my time dolling up.

– Listen to some of your favorite songs, or inspirational quotes. Believe me, music or optimistic mantra can instantly shift your state of mind.

After a few hours of work you start to realize that Mondays are not that bad after all.

Your ideal Valentine’s Day

VALENTINE'S-DAY-1

AMFAR-2

VALENTINES-DAY-2

boutique on 57

As the city is covered all in snow the most romantic day is almost here. I was lucky enough to escape New York just on time to avoid another heavy snow blizzard. Some people tend to dislike “this holiday” because they say that Valentine’s Day is about spending a lot of money and blah blah blah, but if it’s supposed to be a special day then let’s make one right?

For example, I’m more than happy that I can spend some quality time with my hubby. It doesn’t matter what we do, or where we go. Some of choices could either be going out for a candlelit dinner to watch a movie, yeah, pretty cliché, (I wouldn’t reject any vegan hazelnut chocolates, which by the way, he knows those are my favorite)… but you know why? It’s because this day is all about enjoying each other’s company and most important with the man who stands by your side. Besides every day should feel like this.

This time I might try something different. It’s always a good idea to renovate the options instead of doing the same plan each year, because that will drag us to monotony, and that’s not the point here. This is the moment where couples should come up with some fresh, fun and creative plans. This Valentines Day, I am so happy to travel the whole weekend with my man; I think that always helps to take a breath of work, stress and the city. Changing scenery is mostly therapeutic and refreshing.

My best recommendation is keep it simple, little things work best. Stay away from the routine and do something fun instead. Maybe go to a spa together, or attend to a yoga class together, just something out the norm that will make it interesting. Make yourself looking extra pretty. Put some extra layer of red to initiate romantic escapes. Other than that, there are so many things to do in New York, so keep that in mind and take my advice.

Good Luck! and Happy Valentine’s Day

Who is your best gossiping friend?

GOSSIP GIRLS
019++
07++
011++Picture spending pristine quality time with your pals. Laughing, gossiping, dolling up, or double dating. All this has no limits. In fact Gossiping is the most fascinating because it is, in fact not abstract. It deposits some beliefs, half truths often lies creating landscapes of cosmic importance.
We immediately awaken and radiate to its crop. There are people who naturally romance within us their magnetic charisma at first glimpse. They emanate passion, strong emotions, enthusiasm and joe de vivre from casual elegance.
I am immediately drawn to such scene where uncomplicated facade, open heart, genuine curiosity and generosity grabs me at its core. I personally love to surround myself with people whom together we can shoot for the moon.
We are programmed to create perfect friendships with our double duty where one doesn’t need to wear mask, nor stay on guard  This choice of friendship that we formulate has substance which outlines highly valued points. They bring the best in us and without them we may never achieve some prominence.
Some people’s style, character and taste leaves lasting imprint on our vision and friendship we value and inspire. Until then we can enjoy gossiping about it!

Why girls play games

WHO DO YOU DRESS FOR?

For one thing women are always playing and reacting with their emotions. We test all the time. “No” often means yes and “Yes” translates to no. Go figure us out. There is no logic behind it at all. We check if you get the bite. And if you don’t we aim and activate our competitive dominant component to trigger explosive mix. We are full of charms.

I always question if we dress really for ourselves, men or other women?

Wearing provocative uncensored clothes definitely get us some attention as well it may get us in trouble. Perhaps its all about the mind game, teasing on and power play. Image is often powerful but superficial at the same time. After all we get judged daily as “we are what we wear”.

It was hard to keep a poker face while playing cards with my funny pal Carolina. We both dressed in Dolce & Gabbana black and ivory pant suits and Christian Louboutin black pumps while concentrating on our winnings. The only game we decided to play for a day was game of being ourselves!

WINTER COLD NOTICE

Blame it all on cold winter season as we cover ourselves warmly in finest shearling, jackets and coats. Just before the snow was about to hit the city I spend a cold afternoon in the park looking for sunny spots. It was fun to enjoy the last moments of late Fall breeze along with blending in with beautiful Central Park nature this time of the year.

Nature can be such an inspiration to follow up with adequate color palette, and layers. Even if you don’t realize it, you are always influenced by what is around you.  I love softness of beiges, camels, cognacs, golds, creams, winter whites, chocolate browns  all marching in perfect harmony. It seemed like a neutral step to put Escada cognac shearling jacket paired with Gucci camel tussle skirt for the upcoming brunch and meeting, that day.

Enjoy your breezy snow white day!

How to spend Holidays in New York

Shopping starts with Store Windows

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-3

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-4

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-1

Dec is the most anticipated time of the year not only for kids, but major department stores which transform their window displays into miniature winter wonderlands.  There is a lot to admire, get some serious laughs, and It doesn’t matter if its raining or snowing. You don’t want to miss it!! This New York holiday tradition makes it possible for everyone enjoying the holidays in NYC. I recommend you wear warm clothes, comfortable shoes, and look stylish within crowded haute window shopping.

Every day on my way to work I pass my favorite store Bergdorf Goodman which is located just across the street from Boutique on 57. Their window displays are always huge hit. I purposely slow down to admire those masterly crafted holiday signature designs. They get my vote for the most creative and talented artist’s choice of theme, displays of authentic antiques, couture fashions and tons of quartz crystals. They tastefully convert unveiling spirit of christmas sophistication.

It is an amazing experience and true art . I recently watched a documentary “Scatter my ashes at Bergdorf’s”  (which by the way is amazing film) and I learned what it takes to create elaborate windows. How much time thought, precision and dedication is put into each detail.

Right across the street from Bergdorf Goodman there is freshly opened store Mackenzie- Childs. They specialize in variety of home custom decorations and ornaments. I cruised within the store admiring their beautiful crafted windows, and indoor shelves when I came across cutting-edge christmas balls that were made in my native country Poland.

All those exquisite holiday stories are perfect destination for Santa Clause to arrive soon. I am sure he is going to have award time which store to start from.  I also couldn’t make up my mind.

Cosy soft ivories and beige cashmeres, winter white accessories punch is a way to go this Fall-Winter. Its fashion coolest palette. Pure and simple – effortless sophistication, composed of varying textures. They give you feeling of freshness and fashion-forward all year around. For most people Winter is all about dark colors like grays and blacks, because we worry that it will all get dirty and messy. Winter white is very versatile. Fashionable ivory sweater,scarf, fluffy hat, slacks, or a handbag can be a great simple staple at your wardrobe. Give your look a refreshing pop with a winter white pea coat, blazer, cardigan to go over your darker shades. Your hair color and makeup stands out, skin looks healthier and more radiant. And who doesn’t want it?

Winter white is crisp, clean, and chic. Its my favorite color punch this season. Winter white are great accent pieces to any wardrobe. Do not be afraid to wear it, they make bleach for a reason! If you are intimated by the monochromatic look initiate “baby winter white steps’ with scarf, handbag or shoes.

We would like to hear from you How do you wear white in winter months?
