Happy Sunday!

I’m completely into fresh blooms, comfy shoes, good cup of tea, the list goes on…

Below are a few of my recent obsessions, things that I eat, wear and use almost every day.

1. Sole Society reversible bag. Super chic and goes with a lot of outfits since it has 2 different colors. It’s big enough for you to use it as a gym bag and it comes with a little pouch for makeup or accessories. I’ve been using it non-stop. I believe it’s on sale now:) It looks expensive yet it’s very affordable.

3. Jo Malone body creme and candle.

“English Pear and freesia” is one of my favorite scents. The body creme is rich and will last a long time. I like to use it as a base for my perfume- it makes it smell amazing and the smell lasts longer. You can also mix 2 fragrances for your own unique smell.

*The candle will fill your home with delicate fragrance within minutes and the scent will linger for a couple of days after lighting it.

4. Clarisonic is a game changer. Smoothens and clears your skin if you use it regularly. It removes makeup like nothing else. Use it once a day.

5.Lace up flats -I’ve been wearing them a lot. They are super comfortable and chic. I purchased black and nude. They literally look good with every outfit.

6. Fresh flowers. Enough said ( fish bowl from CB2 )

7. Coconut oil  – I can’t stress enough how wonderful this oil is. It’s perfect not only for cooking but as a moisturizer, hair mask ( mix it with honey and warm it up), cuticle help, scrub ( mix it with sea salt) etc.

There are plenty of articles on how you can use it. Do your research, my favorite is a hair mask, it does wonders!

8. Matcha green tea- green antioxidant and energy potion. Make it with almond milk-yum! You can buy it at your local Whole foods

9. Fruit bowls- one of my favorite things recently (there are plenty of recipes on Pinterest). Make them yourself or you can buy them at the local health food store. My favorite is a “Dragon bowl” from Raw Juice

10. CHANEL nail polish and a matte top coat-> my absolute favorite!  Worth the price and they last a long time.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Guys,

I hope you’ve had a fabulous time over the holidays and on New Years Eve.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

2014 was an incredible year for me, definitely one to be remembered. It was a year of challenges, of risks, of growing. I made changes, I made mistakes, I made my best decisions to date. I moved across the country. I restarted my life.

At the end of each year I always try to think about the highs and lows of that past year and learn from them. There’s always something to be grateful for, or something to learn from ……even in the worst situation.

I’ve grown so much, I’ve learned tons; especially about myself and for that I’m grateful.

I have so many plans for this year, so many places I want to visit, but most importantly I want to be happy, surround myself with inspiring and POSITIVE people and I want to become a better person. … oh and actually do YOGA

New beginnings. Stand up for yourself. Know your worth. Be classy. Clear your mind. Let go. Feel your emotions. Be Strong. Be a positive role model. Work for what you want. You choose the way you want to be treated. Be ambitious. Be honest. Reach your goals. Live a healthy life. Do yoga. Relax your mind. Treat others with kindness. Be slow to anger. No regrets. Live life to the max. Love. Appreciate. Be grateful.

Your dreams are valid

Hello, hi!

I’ve been meaning to do a post inspired by the people who came from nothing and were able to achieve so much.
Here’s the thing:
When we start a new business, end a long term relationship or simply want to do something new with our life, any of us think: “but what will my friends think”? “What will people say”? “Will this create a lot of unnecessary buzz”?
We are so cautious about other peoples’ opinion that very often we give up on our dreams.
Well, don’t! It’s that simple.
Go for what you want and the truth is your real friends will be there for you no matter what (and these are the people you want to keep, these are the people who matter). And the fake ones? Who really cares?
Surround yourself only with people who will lift you higher.
Chase you dreams.
I was incredibly inspired by Matthew McConaughey’s speech at the Oscars (who basically thanked himself) when he said that he needs three things in his life: “one of them is something to look up to, another is something to look forward to and another is someone to chase.” Think about it—it’s a brilliant way of living.

So, here’s to the amazing people.
People who go after what they want despite others telling them not to.
Here’s to the dreamers and achievers.
I hope each and every one of you knows that as long as you believe in yourself, you can do anything.
Because if you don’t believe in you, who will?
xo E.

What’s stopping you?

Hello,

Happy New Year! Many of us have  resolutions to keep up with. The first week of the new year is behind us. How are you doing with your resolutions? Did you give up already(we hope not) or are you working on them(hope so)?

The truth is, each year we want to change something for the better.

We want to get better at something.
We want to work out more to get that dream body.

We want to change the job to be happier.

We want to travel.

We want a better relationship.

We want to start something .. and actually finish it. The list goes on and on.

We set many goals for ourselves.

After doing some research about how to actually stick with your resolutions, we realized that you must visualize  them.

What do we mean by that?  Make a mood board by your desk; print and cut the things that u want or the things that inspire you. All of us want certain things, all of us dream. If you see those things in front of you each and every day, you’re more likely to remain committed.

We chose a few meaningful pictures that will also look very cute at your desk.

We hope that you stick with your resolutions, and we hope that the best version of you comes to life this year. After all, what’s stopping you?

Don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle.

Black.

Hey there,

Let’s get straight to the point– black is everything. And we don’t need to convince you otherwise.
Black clothes make you look edgier, slimmer, sexier. They also make you feel more confident.
Vicky and I have closets filled with black gems(for me, it’s leather pants and jackets; for Vicky, it’s dresses).

With Fall/ Winter upon us, what better time to pull off the black look than now?

He are some of ours #ootd’s from the other day.

P.S Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @wondersofstyle  for more pictures.

“Don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle”

Enjoy,
Eva
