I rarely say that’s a beauty product revolutionised my life. Nieczesto moge powiedziec, ze jakis kosmetyk zmienil moje zycie. There are some which make my life easier but I can truly say that only two beauty buys completly changed my beauty routine. First was John Frieda Frizz Ease which made my hair stop revolting against me.Continue Reading

UPTOWN GIRL GOES TO WORK

UPTOWN GIRL GOES TO WORK

For the first six months of running my business I was turning up to the office in jeans and Isabel Marant boots. Przez pierwsze szesc miesiecy od otwarcia mojej frmy przychodzilam do biura w dzinsach i botkach od Isabel Marant. I kept a suit there for occasions I was to see clients but otherwise I hadContinue Reading

COCKTAIL HOUR

COCKTAIL HOUR

Here, in Britain, we are obsessed with the weather. Not only that but we also appear to have an urgent need for running commentary on the subject. It;s raining! It’s sunny! No, false alarm, just a reflector. Tutaj, na Wyspach mamy obsesje na punkcie pogody, W dodatku czujemy sie w obowiazku komentowac na zywo jakiekolwiekContinue Reading

SUMMER IN LONDON

SUMMER IN LONDON

Summer weather is finally here and knowing England it’s probably short lived. Working like crazy I almost forgot how wonderful summer in can London be. Letnia pagoda nareszcie zawitala do Londynu chociaz jak znam moje miasto, jest ona pewnie krotkotrwala. Pracujac jak zwariowana, prawie zapomnialam jak wspanialy jest Londyn latem. But my family is hereContinue Reading

INAPPROPRIATE?

INAPPROPRIATE?

Do you wear mini skirts? I must admitt that for a long time I thought they were a privilege of teenage girls and women in their early twenties. Until a trip to Paris opened my eyes. Czy nosisz mini? Musze przyznac, ze przez dlugi czas wydawalo mi sie, ze sa one przywilejem nastolatek i mlodychContinue Reading

ON HOLIDAY

ON HOLIDAY

As I got on the plane I promised myself that I’d turn off my phone and put my feet up. But July is turning to be one of the busiest months this year. Wsiadajac do samolotu opbiecalam sobie, ze wylacze telefon i troche sie poobijam. Wyglada jednak na to, ze nie bedzie mi to dane.Continue Reading

THE BRILLIANT WORLD OF MANISH ARORA

THE BRILLIANT WORLD OF MANISH ARORA

Welcome to the brilliant world of Manish Arora. Wonderfully eccentric and unapologetically crazy. What do you think about his cruise collection? I love playfulness of his designs, kitch and cartoon motifs and his use of colour. In a sea of neutrals, his clothes have a “feel good” factor. They put me in a holiday mood!

THINK PINK

THINK PINK

Turn my handbag upside down (there’s no other way to find keys in it) and apart from the usual suspects like a kitchen sink you’ll find a few lipsticks and lipglosses there. Nastepuje zwolnienie blokady maszyny losujacej… to tylko moja torebka odwrocna do gory dnem (inaczej nie jestem w stanie znalezc w niej kluczy). Gwarantowane,Continue Reading

GUCCI WORLD

GUCCI WORLD

There comes a day in every girl’s life when she looks at her high heel collection and thinks-nah, today is a flat shoe kinda day. W zyciu kazdej dziewczyny przychodzi dzien kiedy rzuca okiem na swoja kolekcje obcasow i decyduje- nie dzisiaj, kochane. Christan Louboutin onceonc said that he hates the concept of comfort. AllContinue Reading

EFFORTLESS

EFFORTLESS

I’ve always wanted to put together a wardrobe where every piece  works together whilst looking utterly effortless. Zawsze marzylam o tym aby skompletowac garderobe pelna stylowych a zarazem nonszalanckich ubran, w dodatku takich, ktore by do siebie wszystkie pasowaly. Yet for years I used to buy just random stuff without mentally checking if the clothesContinue Reading

CHANEL MADEMOISELLE – MY REMINISCENCE OF NORTH AFRICA

CHANEL MADEMOISELLE – MY REMINISCENCE OF NORTH AFRICA

Some time ago (here) I told you that I’m a woman of one perfume, faithful to one brand for many years. And that was true – almost. Because I’m actually a women of two perfumes: the everyday one, Tom Ford White Patchouli, which I told you about before  (here), and the travel one – Chanel Mademoiselle,Continue Reading

BEST BUYS ARE OFTEN UNEXPECTED

BEST BUYS ARE OFTEN UNEXPECTED

The best buys are often unexpected. I went to Paris in March (Paris Fashion Week) and on a cold, windy day I ended up in Le Bon Marche River Gauche. Najlepsze zakupy to czesto te niespodziewane. W marcu odwiedzilam Paryz (Paryski Tydzien Mody) i pewnego zimnego, wietrznego dnia znalazlam sie w domu towarowym Le Bon MarcheContinue Reading

Polite notice: due to recent setbacks my summer beach body will be postponed for another year. As usual, your patience is appreciated. Szanowni Panstwo: z powodu niedawnych opoznien w diecie MZ (mniej zrec) moja letnia figura zostanie przelozona na przyszly rok. Dziekuje za wyrozumialosc. Instead of bikinis, there will be tassels, fringes and kaftans galore.Continue Reading

A STUDY IN CARAMEL

A STUDY IN CARAMEL

Hello long summer days! It feels so great to be able to put the suit away (adios amigos, see you tomorrow morning) and change into something stylish for the rest of the evening. Nareszcie lato! To wspaniale uczucie kiedy po poludniu moge odwiesic do szafy garnitur (adios amigos, do zobaczenia jutro) i przebrac sie wContinue Reading

WINE MYTHS BUSTED

WINE MYTHS BUSTED

I picked up The Guardian a couple of days ago and the first thing I saw on my app was super funny article titled “The 10 best Euro myths…” of course relating to the EU referendum – the only subject everyone is talking about, well… maybe except the football. But this article sparked an ideaContinue Reading

ESCAPE TO THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE

ESCAPE TO THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE

As I write this post, the rain has stopped for a moment. It has been raining solidly in London for the past month, you know, that usual sort of rain when the heavens open and it pours for hours. Welcome to summer chez Britannia. Now I know why the Brits always travel to sunny cornersContinue Reading

BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO MAKE LIFE EASIER

BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO MAKE LIFE EASIER

When my mother in law told me a few years ago that she used to be into nail art before she had children, I just shrugged my shoulders. What do you mean, no time to do nails? Surely, nobody is that busy! Alas, I’m having to eat my words now. I haven’t seen a manicuristContinue Reading

ESPRESSO MARTINI

ESPRESSO MARTINI

How many times have you finished a meal and felt full to bursting, yet still felt a lingering, subtle dissatisfaction? Like something was missing … although even the thought of a single bite more (forget about managing a big pudding) made you feel mildly sick? Well I may have a solution to this problem inContinue Reading

THE RULES OF PLAY

THE RULES OF PLAY

I don’t think The French expected ever to see that. He came home the other day to the sight of me sitting on a sofa, drinking beer and watching football. -What is it?- I handed him a piece of paper after he collected his jaw from the floor. -It’s a household policy- I explained- effectiveContinue Reading

AN AMAZING SALAD NIÇOISE

AN AMAZING SALAD NIÇOISE

It’s summer and bikini weather is rapidly approaching, so it’s the prime time (or rather more like the last bell…) to start losing of some of this winter fat. Many of you have already started, I’m sure, but some of us aren’t that forward thinking or driven so we are taking a baby steps towardsContinue Reading

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT DIETING

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT DIETING

I don’t believe in diets. I’ve ever been on one- the infamous now Ducan diet. I’ve lost weight- lots of it, along with my will to live. The weight crept back up after about a year leaving me with a whole lot of clothes I was never going to fit back in. After that, dietsContinue Reading

TUESDAYS ARE FOR BUSINESS

TUESDAYS ARE FOR BUSINESS

To say I’m freaking out is an understatement. A while ago I told you about celebrating a successful first year in business and now the time has come to take my company up a notch or two. Actually, make it three. Oh, OK I’m planning a world domination. The question is- how to go about it? TheyContinue Reading
