I want to start this year with concious choices. Looking at the shocking events, that accented 2020, I am definately opening my eyes for building my wardrobe basic but as well statement pieces more sustainable, timeless way.

Donations for Australia

Yes, it’s not a piece of clothing. But it’s better for the environment and for poor animals and people looking for shelter. Australia is struggling with 70m high fires, since the end of 2019 and the devastation is just heart-breaking. 1/3 of koala population is gone so far. Over 500 000 000 (!!!) animals are dead. Government tried to hide the fact for over 3 months, while a joke prime minister enjoyed his holiday in Hawaii. The budget for fighting the fires was also cut. People are told to stay on their backyards and fight for their lives. Every amount of money can help. I put saving for my dream pair of shoes aside. Future is more important to me. I choose 2 organizations, WIRES and NSW Rural Fire Service and donated already, but I will continue, until Australia and it’s creatures are safe and rebuilt.

Nurse Jamie UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller

I’m all about skin care, especially after starting to notice results lately. And I’m all about crystals as well and this face massager is encrusted with 24 stones containing tourmaline quartz, known for its purifying properties but also absorbing the electromagnetic radiation!

BEVZA Neoprene sock boots

Bevza square toe sock boots in black

BEVZA is an independent Ukrainian brand which I admire for a long time. Their designs are timeless, classic but meaningful at the same time, which is hard to compromise for some. These sock boots will work with every outfit (even track suit if you’re stubborn) and are a definite investment for seasons, if not for life.

Creating shopping lists every month helps me re-consider functionality of my wardrobe (and not only) and keep on track all my expenditures. This season I really want to focus on much needed self-care, organisation and mentioned already functionality (aka no high heeled boots).

1. Retrofête Veronica sequined chiffon midi skirt

Definately the biggest MUST, especially during the festive season. Statement skirt, like this Retrofête bright sequin skirt will help in creating many jaw-dropping looks – paired either with white t-shirt or animal print turtle neck, will definitely be a good investment.

2. ban.do 17-month Planner

I feel my best when I’m organized! In the past I owned two ban.do planner and recently listened to Almost 30 podcast with the founder of these hopeful and cheerful brand. The planner is wood-free, has jaw-dropping design, fun stickers and most importantly, enough space to write down all your daily tasks and goals! Nothing makes me want to get one for unapologetically comming 2020.

3. Gisou honey infused hair oil

Negin Mirsalehi was the first influencer I fallowed on Instagram back in 2016 and when I found out about her Gisou brand I knew I needed to try it! Especially with the beautiful story behing the product. She combined her fathers’ beekeeping skills passed for six generation in her family and her mothers’ passion for making her own hair products as a hairdresser.

4. Agolde Pinch Waist Jeans

I think I mentioned it at least 100 times – I’m totally in love with AGOLDE denim. It’s amazing quality and perfect vintage fit – they look amazing styled with high heels and statement shirt and they keep everything in place, making you feel more confident than ever. I stan!

5. Dr Martens Rixon Made in England

Dr Martens Rixon Made in England boots

I just realized that all my winter boots, excluding my hiking shoes, are high heeled, which is not really functional. That’s why I decided to place these legendary Dr Martens boots as priority on my shopping list.

1. Acne Studios Canada Narrow fringed wool scarf

Classic and timeless, not to mention the coziness and quality of cult Acne Studios scarfs. It will definately complete many Fall/Winter outfits – either with your trench, beige coat or total black looks.

2. AGOLDE Tatum Jumpsuit

As you may noticed, AGOLDE is one of the best denim brands I have ever tried – all a woman needs is a good pair of jeans! And as lately I’m obsessed with jumsuits, when I saw this one, I haven’t stop thinking about it!

3. adidas by Stella McCartney Athletics Long Padded Jacket

If you like to spend free time actively, like me, either if it’s taking a long walks and hiking or running from your meetings to gym, a warm sporty jacket is a must!

4. Adidas Originals Nite Jogger sneakers

adidas Originals grey and neon green sneakers

As one of my latest resolutions (it doesn’t have to be a New Year’s Eve to make them!) is to be more active and actually make a use of money spent on gym membership, I think these sneakers will be a good motivation and kick to make it happened!
