Fashion: How to Look Great on New Year's Eve. #OOTD #FashionBlogger



NY's Eve is another perfect excuse to look even hotter than on regular days, so let your imagination run wild, and end a party with style and grace. Real beauty comes from within, and if you know how to nurture your inner self, it will reflect on your looks as well. Listed below, there are a couple of suggestions you might want to consider while prepping for the craziest and the ultimate night out in 2018.

Prep your skin


One week before New Year's Eve, it's essential to start different beauty treatments since your body and skin deserve a healthy glow and a great foundation for the makeup. Book the best facialist in town and follow their skincare tips. On the other hand, you could do your own beauty regime at home. It takes only 5 minutes to treat your skin to a much-needed level of moisture. Sheet masks are very popular, and they soften and smooths the look of your skin. Place them over your entire face, and leave them on for 5 minutes or longer. There's no need to rinse and the serum will fully absorb into the skin. What's more, rejuvenating eye gels are the best way to heal your under-eye area. Place one pair of gels onto dry under eye area and wait for five minutes. After use, massage the remaining serum into the skin, just like you did with your sheet mask. Also, every modern girl knows the value of a beautiful smile. Since most of the time, you'll be cheering to your fabulousity and smiling, it's important to take care of your teeth by visiting your dentist previously. In Australia, for instance, women know how to take care of their pearly whites by regularly visiting a dentist in Bondi junction, so it's no secret why they all look good on their Instagram photos. Take these things into account and enjoy the new and improved version of yourself.
Epic hairstyle
The wavy beach hairstyle is always chic and unmistakable, so make your hair loose and effortless. First, wash your hair and after blow drying,  spray some dry shampoo, and massage your scalp a little bit. Make sections so half of your hair should is up, and then brush the rest. Use the curling iron to wrap your hair around it, and wait for a couple of seconds. If you're blonde or have damaged hair always put on a heat protectant before styling it. Hairspray the first layer because every hairdresser would tell you to do that. It's important that curls go out and not in because nobody wants to end up looking like Cinderella's ugly sisters with banana curls. When the curling part is over, use your magic fingers to comb the hair down to make it loose and natural. To keep your curls fresh, massage some argan oil to your ends, and there you go. Easy, natural yet very effective.

 What to wear?

Surprise the crowd with a plunging sequin romper or a mini turtleneck dress. Even better, break the rules and wear somebody shaping leather pants and a silky shirt with puff sleeves. If you have a great taste, no outfit is wrong. Period.

The ultimate holiday makeup look



Thank god for the latest fresh makeup trends, because we're all tired of putting extra layers of makeup to achieve that all glammed-up New Year's exaggerated look. To start off, prep your skin with a face primer, which is a great base for your makeup. If you hate being too heavy on your skin, use a BB cream for an overall coverage. Use a beauty blender to blend it all over your face and down to the neck, to make it even. Conceal your under eye area with a liquid concealer, and also your nose because there are always blemishes just in time for the New Years Eve or any other special event. Use your brush, or dab it with your finger as you would normally do. Bronze your cheekbones and your forehead to get that natural sunkissed glow. Apply some blush and a highlighter. If you go overboard with your highlighter game, don't be upset and enjoy your unicorn status. Fill in the brows with gel and make them bushier. Draw the lips with some nude lip liner and go with a burgundy eye shadow since it's lit this season. 
The clock is ticking, so make sure you've done everything in advance and have a stress-free holidays!

Lifestyle And Fashion - Insta-Worthy Vacation Outfit Ideas. #fashionblogger #fashion #inspo



“Sometimes, you got to do some things for the gram,” revealed Kim Kardashian West while being a star guest on the Ellen show recently, and we couldn’t agree more. If it isn't on Instagram, did it really happen? These days, capturing your best outfits without posting them on social media is considered a major crime. I mean, who in their right mind could ever forget to post a cute selfie? Even more, while planning a vacation, our worries of looking cute all the time get doubled, so we must carefully plan our outfits in advance, in order to maintain our Instagram-worthy self-image. Here's a list of a few vacation outfit ideas that will certainly get you likes, and also acknowledge your fashion sense.

Let's talk about autumn essentials, shall we?


How many of us would spend the colder days living in a gray woolen coat, Dr. Martens classic leather boots, and a bunch of turtlenecks? These are the ultimate autumn/winter staples that one must own. To sugarcoat the whole look, you would have to put on a black sailor hat or a red beret and let your friend or bae take some super cool pics. If you are visiting some of the most incredible European cities, then this outfit is perfect for the portrait mode pictures. So, strike a pose, 'cause your Insta is getting lit, girl!

Mark these words!



Wherever you go, there’s a great chance you’ll run into a spa centre, and name a better reason to bring your luxury swimwear and prove them you’re hotter than the hot tub. Take some time to relax, and don’t forget to hashtag that you’re living your best life.

Where the sun warms the sky...

So it's basically winter already, and you suddenly decided to fly somewhere tropical. While most of us mortals are bound to freeze back home, you'll finally get to wear the new bathing suit you bought during the end-of-summer sale. How lucky! On the other hand, you are dying to wear your new, violet Balenciaga boots that are this season's hottest. For the best shot, use the following idea. Put on your sexy little bikini and jump into a pair of those stretch pointed-toe over-the-knee boots and you're done! Find a neutral background because your 'outfit' shouldn't be overshadowed by too many details behind. Strike a pose on the balcony wall, or next to the pool and try not to overedit the pictures! Filters are no longer cool, and a little brightening effect will do just fine.

Color composition makes awesome pics

Just because it's autumn, it doesn't mean we won't get to enjoy sunny days from time to time. If you are heading to a place with plenty of white architecture, then think of the patterns and colors that match the blue skies as well. If you think this is crazy, remember it's for the aesthetics only. Get a red coat, cute suede ankle boots in mustard yellow, a white cable-knit sweater, some very light mom jeans and put on a rectangular Ray-Ban sunnies. If this doesn't get you double hearts, nothing will. So, the next time you think this was totally pointless and unnecessary, remember how many likes your cute outfit has earned, and thank us.

Exclusive Interview With The Well-Connected Queen Of Interiors And Dubai's Finest -Katrina Antonovich [OTSM'S Best Luxury Interior Designer And Entrepreneur Of The Year]


Interior Designer “Katrina Antonovich”  is an icon in the Design world, and she dedicates her work to creating interiors comparable with works of art. 


What determined your passion for design? Tell us about the moment you decided this is the way to go.
I can't imagine my life without passion. Passion in everyday life, passion for love and in who I am & what I do. I think these two concepts are closely linked. The whole world around me can bring me a creative feeling. This state of mind is clearly visible from my early childhood.

What and/or who are some of your design inspirations?
My biggest and brightest idols in design and fashion are- "Versace Fashion House". I think Donatella is one of the world ’s most magnificent figures, and I would like to create the same format and concept of the company. And in a sphere of architecture, I am inspired by the greatest Zaha Hadid - the first lady who received the prestigious architecture award.
What makes you stand out amongst other designers?
I will be short - my taste, my vision, and my outlook on life. I do not try to stick to rules, I am a person of free flight of fantasy.
I always say to be in love with our work is always the key to achieve better results. Are you in love with this job? What do you love most about being an interior designer? 
 Being an interior designer for me is not a job at all. It is my life. I truly and fully love everything I do and get the joy of creation. As I said earlier, without passion to what you do you cannot reach the top of Olympus of Design. Step by step I move forward to my dream; I'm evolving, I collect new knowledge in this sphere, and I hope for excellent results.
How important is a perfect chemistry between you and your clients to achieve the best results?
To be a designer - means to be a psychologist. One of the basic studies that help me to understand my customers is psychology. Design is a process of communication, that is why it is very necessary to have a deep understanding with my clients.
How would you describe your work style? Do you have any kind of “signatures” that help to identify your projects?
 My signature style is my special approach to all the clients, ALL INCLUSIVE in design and architecture. I introduce innovative ideas that make the project incomparable. The philosophy of my work is to give to clients a feeling of absolute comfort at every stage of creating interiors and make this world more beautiful. Each architectural project is special for me.
From your point of view, is design an art or a science?
Design for me is much more beyond than these two definitions. It is the universal constant that combines art, science, creativity, and engineering - the luminary of ideas and techniques.
What advice do you have for young designers or architects reading this interview?
My biggest and most important advice is to have unlimited love for what you do. Some may call it work, but for me - it is my lifestyle. So, just love your life, and you will love everything your hand or mind will touch. And, of course, never stop learning and improving your skills. Always try to get new knowledge and be brave in trying new ideas and one day you will create something great, that will make you proud of yourself.

Wellness: 5 Habits Your Future Self Will Thank You For. #Lifestyle


As a society, we are encouraged to live in the moment and only focus on things that will benefit us now, without thinking about our wants and needs in the years to come. But the truth is, you can provide benefits for your present self, while still reaping major rewards for the future, just by adopting a few healthy habits at a younger age. The small actions we take today have the power to make huge lasting changes tomorrow. So, here are some of the habits your future self will thank you for having.

1. Limit negative influences


Habitual negative thoughts most of us encounter daily have a way of consuming us and leading to a state of depression and hopelessness, which can be devastating for us in the long run. Thankfully, thinking positively and treating ourselves kindly can also become a regular habit. Whether you choose to compliment yourself out loud in the mirror every morning or write down things you are grateful for every day, such positive affirmations will undoubtedly build your confidence and motivate you to tackle everyday obstacles with ease. Stress is also a great negative influence many of us encounter on an everyday basis, but it can lead to serious mental and physical health issues. That is why it is extremely important to find a healthy coping mechanism when encountering stressful situations, as well as to set aside a few minutes out of your day to relax and unwind while doing something you truly enjoy.


2. Adopt a healthier diet


Oftentimes we get so consumed by our busy lives that we turn to unhealthy fast food as the quickest option for our daily meals. However, by setting aside some time out of your day to prepare rich, healthy meals you will start to see a major difference in your overall health, as well as your looks, not to mention the important benefits you would be giving to your older self. Opt for nourishing, healthy foods filled with antioxidants, unsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, in order to improve your dietary habits. Don’t forget to stay hydrated throughout the day, because water improves your metabolism and flushes out toxins, while nourishing your body and your skin.


3. Establish a proper skin care regimen


Taking good care of your skin now will reduce the signs of aging later in life, which is why it is so important to establish a good skin care routine. Start by using a gentle cleanser that cleans your pores and lets your skin breathe, and always remember to incorporate a good moisturizer into your regimen, in order to give your complexion proper hydration. If you suffer from stubborn blemishes, quality acne skin care products are especially important to incorporate into your beauty routine. Always remember to apply sunscreen, or use UVA and UVB protective products, to protect your skin from the harmful sun damage you are exposed to every day.

4. Create a regular exercise routine


Exercise is the one thing we all know we should be doing, but we rarely actually incorporate it into our daily routines. The biggest misconception about physical activity is that it needs to be a huge, exhausting endeavor, such as weightlifting or cardio exercises. While these things do have numerous health benefits, the truth is that you don’t have to go to the gym every day in order to improve your health. Your wellness routine can consist of anything from yoga and morning jogs to dance sessions in your living room. The most important thing is to find an exercise activity you truly enjoy, in order to stay persistent, and your future self will undoubtedly be eternally grateful.

5. Remember to get enough sleep


Adequate sleep is an extremely important contributor to your overall health, because chronic sleep deprivation can lead to serious health issues, such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In order to feel rested and energized in the morning, your body requires at least seven hours of sleep every night. If this looks like a difficult task for you to accomplish, start by going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day, even on weekends, in order to adopt a healthier sleeping pattern your body will instantly be grateful for.
