BURANO ISLAND, VENICE

August 23, 2019

Perhaps the cutest and most instagrammable island, the Venetian lagoon Burano was first established by the Romans, famous for Burano lace and bold colored homes. Burano is 7 km (4 miles) from Venice, a 40-minute trip from Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) by a Venetian water bus/vaporetto.

HOW I TREATED MY ANXIETY NATURALLY

August 13, 2019

This is probably the most vulnerable and personal article I am sharing with you today. Have you ever heard about anxiety and do you know how it feels?

#PLASTICFREEPLANET: LET’S CARE TOGETHER

August 10, 2019

As much as I love to talk about fashion and cosmetic industry, there is nothing more I care about than our planet we live in.

Have you ever heard about hyperhidrosis? Today I want to explain my story. Excessive underarm sweating always affected my life, until I decided to microwave my underarms two years ago. I grew up in South East Europe, more precisely in Kosovo, where temperatures would reach 45 degrees from June to September. I always felt embarrassed to wear something colorful that showed the wet marks under my arms. Sometimes even in the coldest days of winter in Vienna, I’d have wet marks under my arms due to stress or being nervous.

FASHION MEMO: THE 90s SLIP DRESS

June 13, 2019

The ’90s signature style of supermodels and celebrities made a major comeback in the last years. Certainly the slip dress has a long history, since the French queen Marie Antoinette caused a scandal wearing a simple white camisole dress when she was painted by Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun in 1783.
