Summer Trend: Palm Leaf Swimwear

Palm leaf trend has been around for a while now but never in such a major way as it's this season. From shorts and playsuits to dresses and skirts - it appears everywhere and makes every outfit look uber chic. Well, since we're in the middle of summer, let's concentrate on swimwear only. We all know that choosing the right model can be very hard, but with a large selection of different silhouettes, I'm sure you can find THE perfect swimsuit for yourself! When buying one, I suggest you don't blindly follow the trends, because no trend will look good on you if it doesn't fit you. Instead try as many different styles as it gets and choose the one that reflects your personality the most, makes you feel confident and highlights parts of the body you're most proud of.

When it comes to swimwear, saying less is more isn't the case anymore. Even though that one-piece covers a lot of your body, it can look just as sexy as a teeny-weeny bikini. One-piece swimsuit is perfect for women with athletic bodies and the ones that want to hide a little extra pounds on their abdominal area. It can also be a good choice for women with slim legs and big chest (but in this case, choose a swimsuit with higher neckline). Besides, you can also pair it with some denim short and wear it as a body for a stroll in the city.

Reasons to Start Using Snapchat ASAP

It first started up as a sexting app and then became one of the most popular and entertaining apps that offer the most personal and direct messaging. For all those that still aren't familiar with Snapchat, I'm giving you a quick user guide.

What is it? 
If you ask me: the best app ever invented. It's a social tool that lets you share photos and videos a.k.a. snaps with the bonus of adding drawings and captions. It's an app that creates a space to be funny and honest and doesn't conform to unrealistic notions of beauty & perfection like other social media.

So what makes it different from any other social media? 
The catch is that snaps dissapear after a few seconds, the amount of which decides the sender. Messages erase themselves after they're viewed (unless someone does a screenshot) and have to be taken live. Unlike other social media, where image is everything, here isn't about posting polished and photoshopped images but just about having fun and be spontanous and 'real' - to let loose and have fun without concequences.

10 Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil

Everyone's been talking about the magical coconut oil and its many benefits in the cooking department, but did you know that it can also be used as a beauty product? Oh yes, it has many benefits that have soothing effect for your body.

So, what's so special about it? First of all - it's all natural, which means it doesn't contain any perservatives. It consists of saturated fats, fatty acids, vitamin-E and proteins, which are all very benefitial for your skin (you can read more about the composition here). Another good thing about it is that it doesn't become rancid, which means it can work for a longer time, unlike many other oils. It's also naturally antibacterial & antifungal and excellent moisturizer. 

When you see in how many ways it can be used, you'll realize that you can throw away half of your beauty products and use only coconut oil instead. This way you'll have more space on your vanity and also save money. Here are 10 ways to use raw coconut oil as a beauty product. Try them and you'll see that it really does magic!

Kate Spade Beach Bags

Even though it's not summer yet, my thoughts are already drifting away to the seaside, where I see myself lying on the beach, sipping cocktails and soaking up the sun. Ah, sounds like heaven! But wait, which swimsuit am I going to wear? And how about the sunnglasses? And the beach bag? Oh, the usual women issues. Well, I've already bought new swimswear and sunnies last year, so this season I think I need a new beach bag. Can you imagine I've had the current one for five years?! That's because I like to invest in good quality bags that last very long and have a clasic shape that's easy to combine. Well, now the present one has lost its charm and it's definitely time to replace it with more trendy piece. In the search for a beach bag, I looked online and found these pretty totes from Kate Spade, that perfectly represent my style - girly, chic and playful. What I also love about them is the combination of bright colors and stripes that are just perfect for summer and simple model that goes with basically anything. They're also very practical to wear and have enough space for all the beach essentials.

I've chosen four of my favourites, but now I need your help. Can you help me choose THE ONE I should get? Leave your vote in the comments ;)

Instaparty: Life Updates

Hey hey! As you may know in Instaparty posts I like to talk about a little more personal topics that arise in my mind. But since my mind is off at the moment, I just wanted to update you guys on what's been going on with my life. May has passed by so fast, I don't even remember what happened during the month.. thank god for Instagram to remember me what I've been doing.. and eating! ;)

New morning routine
Lately I fell out of my morning routine and it was about time to get back on track. So I started waking up eary (6.20 to be exact) and start the day with my workout routine (I love exercises by Blogilates) by doing 45 minutes of arms, abs, butt and leg excercises. Then I jump in the shower and after that make myself a smoothie (if you follow me on Snapchat, you know I'm a huge smoothie addict). By the time I finish drinking it, it's 8 o'clock and I still have the whole day ahead of me!
