My friend and I love taking long walks on Dubravkin put over the weekends. Botanical garden is sure to amaze. For drinks, I enjoy Dežman Bar and Kavkaz, because they have gorgeous terraces.
What makes you happy?
Happiness is when you are surrounded with people you love, when you are content with your accomplishments and take pride in yourself, when you do what you love and are happy with little things.
The dress that carries my name has all the aesthetic elements I love on a piece. It is attractive as an evening dress with boots or sandals and a clutch.
I was instantly attracted to this jumpsuit due to its lovely blue hue which suits brunettes really well. I believe women will love this style as a chic spring option for a day.
I see this blouse styled with high-waisted jeans. It is very comfortable to wear and the shade is flawless for sunny spring days.
I love jewelry especially for evenings when I need a glamorous detail. In this collection, I was delighted with Fru earrings with feather as a statement piece that will elevate a look to a whole new level.
