Let It Snow

Hey! Holidays are almost here and it amazes us how quickly time flies. While we are ending our university semester and summing up the year, here’s a look of real winter, folks. Ha-ha. We hope you’ll enjoy your winter break and won’t be freezing all the time. That’s a good wish, huh? :)

Love,

Freezing

Hey, folks! It was really cold here in Ukraine and incredibly hard not even to shoot an appropriate look, but not to die from chilblain after half an hour outside! So here’s the look from that Snow Kingdom :) Now things are way better and we hope we will face that frost not that soon again (yeah, who am I lying to). We hope you’re doing great and have started to prepare for festive time!

Love,

New Year + Christmas Gift Ideas!

Hello, loves! New Year and Christmas are just around the corner, so it’s time to think about presents for people you value. Here are some of our ideas to inspire you!



Colleague
Sometimes it seems difficult to select a gift for your co-worker. Well, just think about his/hers hobbies and dreams. The perfect present varies from a cookbook, travel guide to motivational or hilarious cup. If you’re not sure about your college’s preferences, a quality diary can be a right choice.

City of Lviv: Part 2

Hello, darlings! As you can tell, the second part of photos from our trip to Lviv is finally here. Every corner, lane, street, building with great history and a dash of magic, friendly and hostile people gave us so much inspiration that we already can’t wait to come back. All we can tell is that if this city has never been on your must-visit list, you should put it there NOW.

Love from Kiev with Lviv in our heats,

The Yard

We found this nice yard of a candle factory, café and winery in Lviv. Incredible atmosphere and simple design make you feel like in beautiful countryside. It’s so fascinating how different this city can be, but it still has that whole and recognizable style.

City of Lviv: Part 1

Hello, loves! Today we’re glad to share with you some photos from our amazing weekend in Lviv. This incredible city combines both something from Ukraine and Europe. That’s why the atmosphere is so unique and magnetic. Feel the vibe, enjoy the photos. More are coming up your way soon.

Escape

We found some inspiration in magnificent Lviv these last days. It felt so nice to be a little bit like a tourist, yet feel like home, because we didn’t leave the country. This mini trip was a breath of fresh air for us. Go to another town, even the closest one to get moving and create some memories. That’s worth it. Anyway, we hope you all had amazing weekends and now you’re ready to rock this week. Stay tuned to see our photos from this beautiful city.

Love,
Lx

Beauty Favourites: October

Hello, our beautiful friends! We skipped a post dedicated to beauty favourites of September, so Liza shared her tips and tricks – you can read that post here. But now it’s time to sum up what we liked in October, so here we go. 


1. Burberry London Perfume 
Stasia: "It's one of my favourite fragrances for cold season. There's just some magic and warmth in the smell. It has gentle top notes of rose and honeysuckle; deep heart notes of tiare flower, jasmine, peony and a hint of fresh clementine zest; solar notes of sandalwood, musk and patchouli. Amazing rich perfume that stays all day."

2. Shea Nail & Cuticle Nourishing Oil - L'Occitane
Liza: "Unfortunately, we do not always have time to go for manicure, but this product is definitely one of those that will help you to care about your nails and cuticle at home. I like the fact that it is not too oily and has a handy applicator brush. Just use it every day, and the result will not make you wait long. "

Elementary

Hi to everybody out there! Here’s my recent survival kit for now – faux fur coat and coffee. It can be added by some inspiration and good series. I’m currently watching Elementary, which helps me to forget about the weather for a bit ha-ha. Hope you will have a productive week and have fun!

Give Me Coffee!

Hello, darlings! Hope you’re doing great and enjoy autumn. Even though that’s a bit hard – it’s quite cold in Kiev, but we can do it :). As you can guess, this look isn’t suitable for our weather right now, but for running out to grab a cup of latte it’s just fine. Don’t forget to dress warm and drink tea or coffee to make yourself feel better in this constant cold.

Love,

Oh, my Saint!


We all have heard about the one and only Yves Saint Laurent and GBTS is sure there’s at least one thing each fashion lover craves from his luxury fashion house. There’s also no doubt that all of us, fashion and cinema geeks, know about a new film “Saint Laurent” staring incredibly talented and handsome Gaspard Ulliel as an iconic couturier. So, that’s what we are talking about today on the blog. THE FILM.

Hard Times

It happened. Wonderful and incredibly long for Ukraine warm Indian Summer is over. Freeze is almost here and we still have nothing to wear. But this is how it is and will always be. All we can do for now (except stressing out about winter clothing, duh) is to except the cold season with its benefits, enjoy that oh-hello-you-icy-wind-it’s-so-cold-i’m-about-to-die time of a year with a dash of magic.

Love,

10 Beauty Tips You Should Try


Hi babies, how are you out there? I hope everything is going on swimmingly and you are not caught up with the autumn melancholy. In those moments when it comes to the cold season (unfortunately in our area it remains with us for a long time), we need to care even more about the condition of our skin. As you can tell, we didn’t share our monthly beauty favorites. Instead, here are some tips and tricks I wanted to present you. I have a few rules that help me in this, not only in winter. So here are my 10 Beauty hit – tips of all time:

Brightside

If you have those autumn blues, put your hand up (*looks down and rises her hand timidly*). I think there’s just no way not to feel like that because you know… Winter is coming and all that stuff. Luckily, the weather is extremely good right now, so we try to spend all of our free time outside. Hope you enjoy this time of a year as much as we do, even though everyone feels down sometimes.

Love,

The Wall

Hello, loves! Do you know the feeling in spring when you want a change, crave to try something new and get rid of old stuff? It’s kind of weird that we have that now, when it’s autumn. Today we enjoyed nice weather, great coffee, precious moments and some planning ha-ha. Discovery of cool charity shop/bar inspired a lot, especially to clean out the wardrobe and help at the same time. So yeah, inspiration in everywhere!

Love,

Brunch

Hello, darlings! Today we’d like to share with you some photos from our street brunch with Harms (Kiev) and inspire you for the upcoming weekend. Don't forget to slow down, relax and treat yourself.

Another Outfit, Another Wall

You know, there are people who like taking photos of beautiful doors or being pictured with a background like that. I find something charming about simple walls, too. It wasn’t planned to shoot my previous look and this one by the wall, but that’s what we have. A little wall obsession. Ha-ha. Going back to the outfit, this is what I wore on Sunday to brunch with Liza. Some lovely photos from the brunch are coming up your way very soon, so stay updated!

Love,

Another Game

Yeah, sometimes I play for another team. Unfortunately, because of our lifestyle that requires daily bustle around the city from place to place, very rarely we can afford to dress up during the week. So the days when you look a little more feminine than usual are appreciated even more, especially if it is also a day off. In addition, there was just terrible weather during the whole week in Kiev, which reminded us that winter is coming (if you know what I mean ha-ha). This Saturday golden autumn returned again to warm us a bit more. That means we just have to enjoy these still-not-so-freaking-cold days and we wish you the same!

Love,

Inhale, Exhale

Hello, dear friends! There are some, let’s be honest here, shity days sometimes. As you can already guess we had that type of a day. I honestly don’t know how I survived it, not that there were a lot of work to do or something, it just didn’t feel okay. At all. Let’s dig inside a bit. All the insecurities, studying, disgusting weather, attempts to make ends meet, all those multiple work rejections and almost a war in our country just got that pressure on Liza and me all at once. We don’t know how to bear it and I’m not sure we will ever know. I’m not writing all that because I want to complain. We talked it through with Liza, we’ll be fine. I’m writing this for you to understand that maybe some of your problems are not that significant and to remind myself that a lot of people have way more serious issues, and live way worse that I do. We all need to realize how blessed we are, keep it in mind and be thankful. It doesn’t matter how complicated some circumstances are, we have to work hard and believe in ourselves. Better times will come and dreams will turn into reality. 
But for now: 

Good or bad, just smile.
You (all of us) have a lot to be thankful for.

Love,
S x

Red

Hey, folks! I can’t express how much excited I am for the weekend. Not that there will be a lot of rest (HA!) or a special occasion, but it still means a tiny break from all the madness. Here’s my outfit for running around and I hope you will enjoy your end of the studying/working week.

Charity Fair

Hello, darlings! Today we wanted to share with you some photos from yesterday’s charity fair we attended. It was called Dobrofest (dobro means “the good” in Ukrainian) and was held in Taras Shevchenko park in Kiev.

Basically, it was a great opportunity to have some quality time with your friends and family while helping others. The fair represented quite a big amount of local cafes, decor and craft shops that decided to participate. It was incredibly hard to take eyes off all that beauty. There also were some master classes, contests for children, dancing lessons and music performances. To feel the atmosphere of the event and see what it was like, have a look!

September?

Hey, guys! Hope you’re all having a good week. I’m back in Kiev and the craziness has already begun. This will be a hard year, but we are strong like never before and everything is possible. Don’t forget to enjoy every moment and dress up to lift up your mood :)

Beauty Favourites: August

Hello, darlings! We left summer behind and here are the products we loved the most in August.



1. Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Extra-Volume Mascara
Stasia: "I don’t have the thickest eye lashes but this mascara does really nice job. My eyes look way more beautiful and defined when I’m using this one. It’s formula lasts long, doesn’t create lumps and the brush is one of the best I’ve ever tried. I prefer a brown tinted one for a more natural look."

Ease Come, Easy Go

Saying hi to all of you after a little break we had feels so good! A brand new study year is here again, so both of us are trying to make things work and get back on track. Just a quick post to show you my super easy outfit for running around the city like crazy. Let’s rock this year together! x

How To: Have Healthier Hair

Hello, loves. Lately I’ve been trying to improve the quality of my hair since it’s become dry and started to look unhealthy. So here are some tips that helped me.

First things first, I try not to use any heat on my hair. I don’t blow-dry anymore. Have to admit, that was kind of hard to let it air-dry and at the beginning my haircut looked like crap. However, it seems that now my hair is used to live without blow-drying and it falls nicely.

Then, I started to use castor, burdock and agrimony oils (sure you knew about those saviors) to stop hair thinning and to promote hair growth. I’ve been doing this for 2 weeks and the results start to show up. The hair is already shinier and a bit thicker, so I will definitely suggest you trying this out. What you do is pick the oil, generously apply it on your scalp and massage it in for 5-10 minutes. After that, put on a shower hat to cover the hair and keep your scalp warm, wrap a towel over your head to boost the healing process for your hair. Leave it for 1-2 hours. I do it at night, before my night shower two times a week.

Another useful advice I’ve found is to use only cool water to wash and rinse the hair. I thought it wasn’t the best option, so I did a research. The thing is that when you use hot water on your scalp, all vitamins and “food” for your hair wash out of pores because they are still open. Therefore, all those oils and masks give you no result. Cool water, though, shuts up your pores, so everything necessary for your healthier hair stays in and feeds the roots.

Still, the best thing you can do for your hair and health overall is to eat clean, drink enough water and sleep. Make sure you consume enough protein, iron, vitamins A and E, biotin (vitamin B7) and, again, maintain a well-balanced diet.

Hope this post inspired you and helped a bit. Do your own research, stay healthy and beautiful!

Love,

S x

Striped Mood

Well, the sun is still bright, but the coolness of the evening suggests that summer is moving inexorably towards the end. That means we didn't die from heat and our favourite jackets start to return to the wardrobe again. And finally, I can show you my love at first sight - a striped skirt. It's not a secret how much I love stripes and if I could choose one print for life, my choice would be obvious. I hope you like it as much as I do. Take your time and enjoy the latest hot days, autumn is almost upon us!

Love,

Beauty Favourites: June/July

Hey, folks! The new beauty post is finally here! At first, we decided to combine our favourites of June and July. However, while being in Belgium, we did a little haul in The Body Shop, so this post is more likely to be a review for some goodies we got there with a tiny bonus. Another cool thing is that both of us tried all the products listed below. So yeah, let the party begin!























The Body Shop. How do one describe The Body Shop? We don’t have one in Ukraine and every time we are there it feels like heaven. All that aromatic stuff, beauty jars and packages. Ahh. Have to admit that we are kind of scrub and body butters addicted. Just a bit. Okay, maybe not a bit. What we’re trying to say is that you guys have to try their Mango and Coconut exfoliators

Black

Hi there! How are you guys spending your last month of summer? I hope that more “colorfully” than I, because for this post, which we shot when I was in Kiev for a few days, I chose almost total black look. Yeah, black, again. I feel so comfortable in it, even in such hot days, my hands are still drawn to the clothes of that color. But anyway, we all know how important it is to find something that you really like to wear. So, I will enjoy my “black days of summer” and get ready for the new season. Stay with us, we are already preparing the new outfits for the fall! 

Love,

Paris Calling

There are moments when you want to escape from all the craziness going on in your life, just become someone else for that day. And it’s absolutely okay. Feel free to do that. Do something unusual for you. Well, I wore high heels and that’s a big deal I have to say. Of course, I would die if I wore those a minute longer after we finished the shoot. But you know what? Having that Parisian vibe for a bit gave me so much inspiration and that’s exactly what I needed. 

Love,

Birthday Noon

Greetings from sunny Yalta! I feel incredibly lucky to be in my hometown, especially now, ‘cause it’s my birthday today. I turned 21 and can hardly believe it. I had my coffee and asked a friend to make some shots, while doing last preparations before heading to a dinner with several of my old beloved friends. Sadly, not everyone I wanted to meet today are with me now and when I think about how time flies, I start to feel like a lady that’s about to retire. But you know what? Even if our life passes by so fast, we still have so many wonderful things to come and they are definitely worth becoming a bit older. x

In da Brugge

It feels so strange to write this post while lying in the bed and drinking tea. You can’t tell by looking through the photos, but the weather was just crazy that day. It was freaking cold, the rain was falling heavily and the wind was super strong. Yeah, we couldn’t choose a worse day to visit Brugge. Even locals told us that it was the worst summer day in a really long time. And you know what? We still were exploring the town. Well, at least we tried. Surprisingly, we had so much fun! Was it that nature’s craziness or wine? Who knows. Nevertheless, we left Brugge with unforgettable memories, a bunch of new jokes and without our umbrellas, which were cruelly destroyed by the wind and tossed in a trash can. Does it mean we will come back? Definitely! xx


P.S.: But we’ll check the weather first.

Lost in Brussels

There are days when you want to stop planning and just let your heart lead you. Well, in Brussels we had exactly that kind of a day. We left the train at Brussels Nord station and, having no idea where our feet were going, got lost in the capital of European Union. Strangers were passing by, we didn’t understand a word, but couldn’t feel more free and happy. Suddenly, that peaceful feeling came across. It’s hard to explain and easy to understand if you’ve ever had experience like that. So if you haven’t, we hope our little adventure will inspire you to forget about maps, tour guides and all your fears. xx

Werchter Guide

Hey, folks! As you know, we attended music festival called Rock Werchter, so today we are pleased to share our guide dedicated to this outstanding festivity.

Location: Werchter, Belgium
Date: Thursday – Sunday around the beginning of July
Genre: Alternative Rock, Rock, Pop


To begin with, we’d like to mention that the organization of the fest is flawless. Every single detail has been taken into account. Free busses from Leuven (a town where we lived) and camping areas to the festival site and otherwise were coursing very often. Even on the last night when a huge amount of people was leaving Werchter at one time, we’ve waited less than 10 minutes to depart. The entrance was very quick as well. Seriously, we hardly ever standed in a line there. Moreover, festival crew was very nice and friendly, security members were always ready to help. The only thing that we were a bit upset about was a gigs’ timetable. Unfortunately, we didn’t see some artists perform because we were at the other show. However, it was the only drawback for us.

Sneak Peek from Belgium

Bonjour! Today was the day of exploring Brussels. We just got there by train and went wherever we wanted to. Without planning anything! Guys, it was incredible! Tomorrow, well, actually today already, the festival begins. As soon as we come back home, all photos of our Brussels adventure will be revealed along with the looks we shot there. Stay updated, big hugs! xx
