Enjoy your weekend! Have fun & party hard!
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re having a great start into this wonderful week! To start off this new week I decided to discuss an organic skincare company with you guys.
Last week I received products from a company called Bella Organics. They are an all-natural & organic skincare company. Their mission statement is “We believe that we should take care of our bodies, and in turn, our bodies will take care of us.” Bella Organics products never contain water, emulsifiers, or any of the unnatural or toxic ingredients that are found today in most mass-market products. They stick to the best plant-based essential oils & extracts. Our skin is greatly affected by the outside environment influences & aging, so we have to do everything in our power to protect our skin- naturally.
Alena from Bella Organics was extremely sweet & nice. She sent me over the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask, Goji Berry Body Scrub, Lavender Vanilla Deodorant Creme, Jasmine & Honey Hydrating Face Cream for Dry Skin, Coconut Lime Lip Balm, & Lavender Foam Soap.
- Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask ($19.95)
Ingredients: Dead Sea Mineral Mud, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Perilla Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Oil. Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil, Organic Geranium, Optiphen (as a preservative) unless preservative free option chosen.
This product was hands down my favorite. It’s so soft and smooth and did not irritate my skin! The mud mask dries on your face & you feel the slight tightening of the skin. You leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off with warm water. The first time I tried it I made sure to test the product out on a smaller part of my skin because I was worried it would irritate it. But that wasn’t the case. It gets rid of all the makeup that’s left over on your face & gives it a deep down clean feeling. I saw an improvement in my skin with just 2 uses. This mask really improves the appearance of your skin by minimizing the pores on your face, wrinkles & fine lines & improving elasticity. If any of you have any skin disorders such as eczema, acne or psoriasis then this a great product for you to try. It can really help cure your symptoms. This mud mask is a perfect for natural skin exfoliation & restoring your skin’s pH balance. You don’t need to use a lot of this product, it goes a long way. After using the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask my skin felt clean, soft, fresh & silky. I know some products make your skin feel dry & stripped but this mud mask was nowhere close to that. I truly can’t get enough of this wonderful product & recommend it to everyone!
2. Goji Berry Body Scrub ($7.95)
Ingredients: Dead Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Goji Berries*, Almond Oil*, Orange EO* *Certified Organic
The first thing that made me love this product is the scent! It gives off a smell of freshly squeezed citrus. It smells so good that you will want to eat it. I guarantee it! This great antioxidant body scrub will leave your skin silky smooth like a baby’s butt. It gives off your natural glow and makes you feel super clean & smelling great for the rest of the day. This body scrub can be used on both your hands & body. It leaves your hands and body feeling oily & moisturized. The benefits are: The Goji berries keep your skin looking young & it’s filled with Vitamin E for soft glowing skin! Himalayan Salt is considered to be the most pure form of whole salt on the planet, it contains 84 minerals and trace elements including iodine, when you use the scrub these minerals are absorbed into your skin! Dead Sea Salt is known for its therapeutic properties with people traveling to soak in its healing salty waters! Benefits have been clinically proven to relieve symptoms of psoriasis and other skin allergies. While using this product I just used a small amount and rubbed it all over my body for about 1 to 2 minutes. Make sure to not rub it in too hard, it does it’s job by rubbing it gently against your skin. After all you have to do is rinse it off and pat it dry & it leaves your body full moisturized. Also, if you are the type of person who likes bubble baths, then just use a tablespoon and let it dissolve with warm water. It does an amazing job exfoliating your skin. I recommend this as well.
3. Jasmine & Honey Hydrating Face Cream for Dry Skin ($27.00)
Ingredients: Shea Butter*, Jojoba*, Coconut Oil*, Moroccan Argan Oil*, Evening Primrose Oil, Honey*, Jasmine Extract*, Vitamin E, Silk *Certified Organic
This product does not lie when it says it hydrates. After I used my Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask I put a little dab of this Jasmine & Honey Hydrating Face Cream on a few places on my face and it melted on my skin as if it was butter. It kept my face hydrated and moisturized all day. My skin felt so soft and nourished. The cream soaks in very well & a small amount of it goes a long way. My skin quickly absorbed it and left it feeling great. When our skin is dehydrated wrinkles can form on our face which is something us women do not want. So we have to make sure our skin is hydrated and moisturized. This cream is unlike any conventional cream, you don’t have to apply a large amount or very often. On a clean face, just a apply a tiny bit and let the cream melt into your skin. The benefits are: Organic Shea Butter contains Vitamins A, E & F and has been used for hundreds of years to protect, heal and beautify the skin! We use pure organic Shea butter that has not been treated with chemicals to refine it. The vitamins in Shea butter work together to hydrate, soothe and balance the skin. It also contains fatty acids with protect and revitalize damaged skin. Organic Jojoba Oil is the ONLY oil that is similar to human sebum. It tricks your skin to accept the oil and helps skin to regulate a balanced oil production! Jojoba oil rejuvenates your skin and promotes new cell growth. Your skin rapidly absorbs the oil making it soft and youthful. It restores skin suppleness and promotes skin elasticity. Organic Coconut Oil Unlike other acids used in other cosmetics that quickly oxidize and turn bad, causing free radical cell damage, lauric acid in coconut stays fresh for longer. This also means that coconut oil is packed with antioxidants, along with the medium chain fatty acids that actually help build cells rather than destroy them. This is good news for younger looking skin. Using coconut oil regularly helps build and repair skin, actually slowing down the development of wrinkles! Organic Argan oil: protects the skin against wrinkles appeared due to premature aging. It also helps reduce the appearance of crow’s feet (wrinkles under the eyes).It is a very good remedy for dry skin. It does freshen and soften the skill more readily than any other skin softness creams or oils do. Protein rich Argan oil is very good for the elasticity of skin. It strengthens the protein bonding structures in the skin which works to tighten the skin and make it look fresh. Argan oil is good for reducing skin irritation. It quickly heals the marks caused by scratching on skin. One of the most amazing facts about Argan oil is that along with dry skin it is equally good for oily skin. Sebum is an oily substance secreted by sebaceous glands which keeps the skin wet and protects against dryness, but its excess secretion is bad for the skin. Argan oil regulates the secretion of sebum and keeps it to a manageable level. Organic Evening Primrose Oil: Rejuvenates tired and aging skin and can make tired eyes look fresher. Removes redness and minor blemishes and can help dry skin to feel suppler and younger. It can be massaged into dry skin to make it smoother and silkier and to reduce and remove fine wrinkles. Organic Honey: Honey is naturally antibacterial and full of antioxidants known to slow aging. It is extremely moisturizing and soothing! Vitamin E has long been known for its anti-aging properties and it also increases the shelf life of the face cream. Believe me, it will make your skin feel wonderful & you will love using it.
I’m hoping you all enjoyed my post about Bella Organics products. I wanted to share with you the products that worked very well on my skin. If you guys are interested make sure to visit their website & order a few items. They also have samples you can order to first test it out and see what you like.
Thank you for stoppin’ by! Make sure to share with your friends!

Hello Friends! Hope all is well with you. 🙂
Everything has been going great on my end. We are still in the process of buying our first home. News regarding that should get back to us shortly – maybe this week or next. This week would be absolutely amazing though since my birthday is tomorrow! But you can’t rush these type of things so we have to patiently wait. I’ll keep you posted…
Besides that, we’ve just been hanging out and trying to get our mind off things. This past weekend we left CT and took a drive to NYC for the night and hung out at my house. I love coming back to NYC, it’s my favorite place to be. I’m a true city girl and I just love the vibe I get whenever I’m here. Once I get on the White stone Bridge & see that city view I feel so ecstatic.
We spent Sunday Funday in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. My mom, my boyfriend & I went to eat at our favorite polish restaurant Karczma – it’s traditional decor resembles an old country farmhouse that makes you feel like you are in Poland. The old polish folk music, waitresses dressed in traditional folk dresses and traditional polish food make it an unforgettable journey back in time. I recommend you all to try this restaurant out whenever you come to NY, I’m sure you won’t regret it. Afterwards, to get rid of our sweet tooth we went to Fortunato Brothers Cafe & Pasticceria, which is one of the best bakeries in Brooklyn. The day was perfect.
With this look I figured I’d keep it neutral. The dress/tunic was very comfortable and perfect for a sunny fall day. If you are worried that it will be too short for you, just wear some shorts underneath. Tunics are mean to fit loose, not snug. There are many types of tunics for women which can be different style, lengths and shapes. The trick is to pick the one that best flatters your body type. Some may have an empire waistline while others flow straight. Adding a belt is always a great idea. I usually put the belt on my hips – that’s where I think it looks best. I paired this outfit with my Nine West open toed booties which I absolutely love.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to see what I’m up to! I appreciate all the support! Have a great day & week!

The holiday season is creeping up on us. During this time many of us have busy schedules filled with dinner parties. Dressing up for various holiday events, from dinner dates with friends/significant others to business networking can become very stressful if one is unsure of what “look” to go for. Each event requires a made-for-the-occasion outfit and I’m here to help you get it right. Here are three outfit ideas for the Holiday GG.
A night out in the town with the girls /significant other calls for a sleek, chic and super-stylish outfit. You can never go wrong with all black. By adding the red clutch & fur vest, you get a pop of color.
Michael Kors Blouse $248 / River Island Cardigan $82 / H&M Imitation Leather Trousers $40 / Christian Louboutin So Kate Pump $675 / Christian Louboutin So Kate Bootie $1,095 / YSL Cross Body Bag $1,555 / Gucci Lipstick $39
Business Dinner Party
I suggest a look that’s classy, feminine and powerful. Since this is a company dinner party, make sure to not overdo the outfit. Keep the outfit simple and just add a pair of statement heels.
Michael Kors White Silk Blouse $795 / Mango Knit Sweater $56 / Kay Leather Skirt $1,250 / Monroe Animal-Print Calf Hair Pumps $995 / YSL Monogrammed Clutch $995
When it comes to cocktail parties there is no “official “dress code which sometimes makes it a tad bit difficult to prepare for. Of course you can’t go wrong with a Little Black Dress for a Cocktail Party. They way I see it – it’s better to be slightly overdressed than under-dressed for a party.
Jane Norman Halter Dress $80 / Jimmy Choo Pumps $675 / YSL Monogramme Tassel Clutch $1,500 / Tory Burch Logo Flower Stud Earrings $68
My piece got featured in The Greenwich Girl’s Magazine – Holiday Issue. I hope you all enjoyed it & don’t forget to go directly to her website to check it out.
Have a wonderful day!

Finally I am back blogging, you have no idea how happy I am! This break I took felt like forever. I have been really busy for the past month. My boyfriend and I have been apartment hunting so that’s been taking over our lives. It’s a very fun but stressful process. But things seem to be heading in the right direction so let’s hope sooner than later we will have our own apartment and will be living happily ever after. 🙂 ♥ I’ve already been planning out the whole look of the apartment in my head from the big things to all the little details. So make sure to wish us luck! Trzymajcie kciuki za nas! 🙂
This look is perfect for the New York weather we are recently having. I love being comfortable while still looking chic & stylish. That’s why I think this gray tunic dress is amazing, especially when it’s paired with the knee high socks & boots which is one of my favorite looks for the fall/winter. I’ve had these chestnut boots for a few years now and I’m nothing but satisfied with them. They match with almost everything and they are so comfortable. I personally love the chestnut and gray mix, it goes very well together. This over-sized sweater completes the whole outfit and all you have to do is add some jewelry and you are ready to go. 🙂
Dress – Polish company “by o la la…!” / Sweater – AllSaints / Boots – Steve Madden / Knee High Socks – H&M / Purse – Louis Vuitton
Enjoy your Monday & remember ” Be grateful for the good times & keep the faith during the bad times. Stay positive when life gives you every reason to be negative”.
Thank your stoppin’ by, I hope you enjoyed my post. Don’t forget to share with your friends & leave some comments.

My mother, my boyfriend & I spent this past Sunday out and about in the Brooklyn Bridge Park. It’s absolutely beautiful there. The views are spectacular. I love the vibe there, it’s the perfect place to relax and chill. You can lay out on the lawn and have a picnic, sit on the benches and look at the panoramic views of the Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges, the New York Harbor & Lower Manhattan, play soccer, basketball and volleyball (in the sand with city views), get some exercise by running or biking, take your children to the playground, go to the beach and get some sand in between your toes, go on the carousel, and so on. This is a go-to location and should not be missed. We had a wonderful time & the weather turned out to be amazing. Since my boyfriend & I haven’t had a chance to go visit Paris and go to the “Love Lock” Bridge we decided we wanted to leave a part of our love at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. We found a fence that had other locks on it as well & we attached it there. In a year we will go back & check if it’s still there.
Oh how I missed these New York City views! Recently, I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I’d like to in the city. This place makes me feel alive, free and unstoppable. I feel as if I could conquer the world. NYC is unlike any other place in the world. It’s the city of love, dreams & fashion. The energy you feel when you are here is indescribable. Every time I go into the city or see the views I get mesmerized & fall in love with this city all over again. This is where I grew up, this is my city and this is the place I will always call home.
My favorite picture ♥
This look was perfect for a New York City type of day. It was vibrant, chic, stylish & made me stand out from the crowd. It was also super comfortable. Perfect for a day spent wandering around and still looking good at the same time.
A special thank you goes out to my wonderful boyfriend for the photographs! ♥♥♥
