What inspired you to start a style blog? What motivates you to keep blogging?
Because I studied art in high school and collage, I always had that desire to express myself. At first it was on a small dimensions. A piece of canvas turned into a big picture. I cares about the way I dressed every day- for me, this Is just another form of art that involves creativity.
I constantly receive great feedback from my readers as well as support from friends and family that I dearly care about. So, that motivates me to keep blogging.

Overall is simple, minimalist but always with a punch of colors. I practically ” eat” and “breath” colors. I keep the focus on them and the rest of the outfit is clean and simple- effortless chic-
I also love to wear my own jewelry made by Bogdan (my husband ) and I, who are always the perfect detail, no matter what I wear.
