How To Treat Dry Skin in the Summer

Treating dry skin within itself is a dreadful and daunting task. But when you combine it with high temperatures and humidity, your body is screaming for moisture and you must give it what it wants.
Personally, I have combination skin. So, some days my skin is super oily and other days it is dry. Honestly, I prefer the drier days because it is easier to treat, but the key here is that I am treating it.  Staying hydrated with fluids and moisturizing has saved my skin a lot of trouble, but there are some other tips to keep in mind as well.
1) Limit your warm, steamy showers. I know, you probably just rolled your eyes, and I don’t blame you. But, those steamy showers are terrible for your skin. They dry out the skin and strip away the natural oils. If you are an extremist like me and can handle a strictly cold shower, then go for it! If not a lukewarm shower is perfectly fine.

Gypsy Puzzle by Jolie Su

 Hello everyone! Today, I would like to introduce you to the brand Jolie Su by designer Alexandra Sulżyńska. She is a graduate of the International School of Costume and Fashion Design in Warsaw; and made her runway debut in 2013 with her Sans Culotte Collection

Here I am sharing with you Alexandra's latest look book entitled Gypsy Puzzle. The clothing within themselves look as if each piece is ready to head on a separate journey. But we don't know which journey they will take; it is a mystery, a puzzle that needs to be solved. 

Alexandra's inspirations include social phenomena as well as her French background which she states, "Is reflected in a certain swagger while maintaining class and natural charm." 
Combining interesting, distinctive fabrics, different textures to create an original, remarkable fashion in use. Mixing casual and evening clothes to surprise and so you can be ready for any occasion at any time, during the day or at night.  Jolie Su is worn by women, who want to stand out from the crowd, draw the attention. Femininity. Courage. Madness. Class.

2014 In Trainers

2014 has been a great year to get some kicks. I'm actually happy that sneakers have come back in style. They never left, and definitely were not out of style, but there was someone perpetuating aura surrounding sneakers -- in womenswear that is. From the moment I laid eyes on this info-graphic which FarFetch was generous enough to send me, my eyes were immediately drawn to the Giuseppe Zanotti's on the bottom as well as the Marc by Marc Jacobs trainers. Now those are some great kicks!

I totally am feeling a 90s flashback with these kicks. Sort of like one of those Back to the Future moments.

Which sneakers are your favorite?
