Let it snow! Snow white OOTD

Suddenly it has gotten super cold in Paris and the Louvre square makes me think of a snow rink! But they're still no snow! :(( Snow is something I really miss in Western Europe and hopefully my "snow white" outfit is going to attract it eventually ;)) Let's keep the fingers crossed for at least one snowy day in Paris this winter.

I'm wearing:
Hat: Rossman
Jacket: Mexx
Leggings: Promod
Shoes: GEOX

Cute, comfy and casual OOTD for long walks

Here's another casual look for long walks in Paris - my favorite weekend activity :)
I'm super happy about the boots: flat and comfy, with trendy decorative holes, they can be worn all year round (at least in Paris with its mild temperatures). The jacket was also a great find - lightweight and beautifully shaped, it can be rolled up into a tiny cushion ideal for carrying in a bag ...and travelling! ;)

Jacket: Marie Lund
Top: Guess
Jeans: Guess
Boots: Venezia 
Bag: C&A

Steampod flat iron. 50% smoother hair, 50% faster!


Welcome to the new generation of hair straightening! Today I'm going to review a brand new kind of a flat iron: Steampod by L'Oreal Professionel. As the name suggests, the key element is steam, providing a gentle innovative heat action whilst minimising heat damage to the hair.

L'Oreal claims that with a Steampod you'll see results that are up to 50% smoother and 50% faster compaired to a regular straightener, and I couldn't agree more with this claim! Personally, I find it *twice* faster to use and not only it straightens the hair, it turns it into silk! The first time I used it, I couldn't believe how awesome it was. And here I have to tell you that when it comes to hair products and tools, I'm *very* hard to impress!

Orange juice fasting: how to lose 3kg/7lbs in 3 days

Last year I lost 11 kilos or 24 pounds in 3 months and I started my weight loss from  orange juice fasting. Feel free to read my entire weight loss story while in this post I'd like to focus on orange juice fasting.

Before some of you start telling me that fasting in unhealthy, I have to tell you that the proper, timed way of fasting is actually approved by most doctors all over the world. I'd like to invite you to make your research and discover some amazing health benefits of short-term fasting including improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, insulin sensitivity as well as reducing the risk of diabetes and triggered immune cell regeneration. For example, you can read this article or this one. One of the best books I read about fasting is "The miracle of fasting" by Paul Bragg. With that said, it's true that there exist contraindications for fasting  and it's recommended to consult with your doctor before adopting a fast and adhere to it correctly. And since it's something that works great for me in all ways, I'd like to share with you my experience :)

Hollywood Waves hair stylers for texture and curls


Hi guys! You often ask me if I ever prepare my hair for styling and which products do I use. I do like to texturize my naturally staight/smooth/sleek hair to give some grip and volume and today I'll share with you my new favorite stylers: Hollywood Waves by L'Oreal Professionnel (from TECNI.ART series for professional hair styling). These products are ment to either
- add definition to natural curls/waves, or
- prepare straight hair for curling.
But guess what? I love to use these stylers directly on my straight hair even when don't curl it, simply to give it a lot of volume or make it easier to braid :) The hair volume in the below picture was achieved without any styling or blow drying. I simply applied "WAVES FATALES" gel onto my dampen hait, let it dry naturally and created a deep part at the end. Many for some of you this kind of a volume is nothing special, but for me and my very thin hair is's a kind of a XXL volume, right from the roots! :D
