Summer Style Must Have: Denim Shorts

I don’t  write about style/fashion, as I don’t really follow the trends and usually wear very simple clothes, and a lot of black… (Here is my Pinterest “style” board )

But I thought it was worth mentioning my summer essential – denim shorts. I have been pretty much living in this pair. They go on so well with everything, and by everything I mean:  black, white, red, burgundy and stripy t-shirts and tank-tops.

My New Hairstyle for Summer

I had a relatively long hair and my natural colour for years (here is a photo). And… a) I have a lot of hair but it is thin and doesn’t look that good b)I had the same, more or less, length for years and years; plus I did not colour it so I got very bored, as I used to change my hair style all the time in the past.

This is why back in February I’ve asked to chop off all the thin and damaged hair, so I ended up with a shoulder length hair style.  It was a big change but once I was over a slight shock, I knew that I was ready for more experiments. This is why last week, I changed my hair style completely, and I even had it coloured  for the first time in years.

It is nothing too dramatic, just a darker shade of cool toned brown which is still not as cool (toned), as I wanted it to be. My natural colour is  really cool toned, and I hate anything warm/reddish on myself. But  I find that it is even harder to get a spot-on dark hair than blonde (I was blonde for several years).

Recipe of June: Salads

This month was all about salads, which you could notice if you follow me on Pinterest. I tried not to upload my every meal on Instagram but a few did end up there #SorryNotSorry.

My favourite kind was with lettuce as a base, tomatoes,  bell pepper, cucumbers, some kind of seeds and cheese and mushrooms, grilled chicken or salmon. Usually with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

But there are so many variants and so many on my to-cook list. So, please, if you

New In: Books On Perfume and Fashion

Recently I posted a feature about beauty books every girl needs which I wrote for Mode. There I actually said that Perfumes A to Z Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez is on top of my wish list, after so many recommendations of people who know and love perfume.

I finally bought it last month, and although I did not have a chance to read it properly yet, I really love it so far. I was happy to discover that perfumes that I love got high rates and laughed at some other witty and honest reviews. My brother was also intrigued by this book and borrowed it to read about his colognes and to find some new ones.

I am sure that it is as good as everyone says it is. I am only sad that it’s from 2009 so a lot of new(er) perfumes are not included.

Requested: What’s Inside My Handbag

Since “What’s in my Handbag” was a very requested feature – I am finally doing one. I hope you will like it. I’d say that I always carry more of less the same things and it works perfectly for me.

I have somehow forgot to include my phone, as it was charging and also my keys. But those two are obvious, and nothing interesting anyway.

What's Inside my handbag Makeup4all

Here we go:

The handbag itself, I change them all the time. And this Mulberry one is one of my favourites.

Purse, I’ve had it for years now, and actually need new one soon. Maybe there is one you’d recommend?

A notebook and a pen. This beautiful leather notebook was a present from one of my best friends and I absolutely adore it. I love writing lists on paper, and that will probably never change. I also use only pens with black ink.  That may sound weird but it’s true, has been like this for years now. #BlackForever

I could never be without my
