Hello my dear readers,
Today's post is dedicated to everybody who just like me is passionate about makeup and the power it has over us. Makeup has a magic ability to change the mood, boost self-confidence and empower us for the greatest things. As simple as that, a perfectly matching shade of a lip liner can change my day. So here we go! Today I am sharing with you my absolute beauty favourites for everyday makeup during the last six months.

Fly Down


Good evening my dear readers,
I am preparing this post to show a bit of real-life me. Brand editorials are coming later this week! I will finally share with you some projects I've been putting my efforts in lately.
But today is my go-to outfit during these weeks. A pair of sneakers and a comfy fluffy jacket is all I need. I went to shoot this look in my neighbourhood. So you can also get an idea how the surroundings of my home look like. Sometimes I forget how blessed I am to live in this place, but then I clean up my eyes and get back to reality. 

January Weekend: Outfit of the Day

Good evening guys!
I am starting to feel inspired for spring. But it may be too early for the moment.. Sun is here anyway and it is not letting us fall apart. I have been struggling the whole week at school. Design Thinking classes have taken all of my energy. Luckily tomorrow is the last day before a small vacation. I will be visiting one of my favorite cities in a week by the way! Stay updated on instagram and snapchat (annagotsyk).
Here is my outfit of the day shot last weekend. Wearing these mules and a velvet skirt really often these days. So comfortable and fits the weather really well. What do you think about this look?
Bisous, Anna

Happy New Year 2017

Good evening my dear readers,
Are you ready for this special night? New Year's Eve is just around the corner! This holiday has always been very special for me. And choosing an outfit for the night is a great pleasure and a perfect occasion to sparkle. This year I chose silver and nude colours. I shot the look a few days ago for you to get some inspiration in case you haven't chosen your New Year's Eve outfit yet. 
I decided to wear one of my mostly beloved brands River Island. It was hard to choose which of their sparkling pieces I want for this evening but I finally went for a silver skirt. I find combination of silver and nude so elegant and festive. What do you think? Tell me your NY's outfit ideas.
Bisous, Anna

2016 RECAP


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of my dear readers!
2016 is coming to an end and I feel like it's time to remember all of the great moments of the year.
Gathering all the best memories makes you appreciate your life and wonderful time that destiny brings you. Of course, the best moments are not captured on the photos. These are times of laughter, fun and love with your dearest people. This is something which is stored in our beautiful minds and makes our soles shine each morning. 
Here I have gathered the most memorable moments which happened to me as a blogger and a traveller in 2016. The memories are placed in a chronological order. I am incredibly thankful for amazing year full of joyful adventures. I am thankful to all of you for being with me during each and every of these days. Thank you guys!
Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

Christmas Market in Nice


Good evening my dear reader,
Tonight I have a Winter Wonderland: Riviera Edition kind of post. 4 days are left until Catholic Christmas and the whole Internet is crazy about this holiday. Christmas mood is on my mind too. Although holidays will be a bit longer for me than for everybody. I will get back to work only after celebrating my Orthodox Christmas on January 7. 
And the way it is supposed to be - I am home for Christmas. I had a flight from Nice to Kiev and now I am enjoying my childhood apartment. I had such a rough time flying home cause I overestimated my strengths and took too much hand luggage (How could I arrive without presents for everybody?). Felt like a Santa Claus though. Now I am home and it feels like it has never felt before. These months far from home made me miss the place where I belong way too much. It is different for everybody but I am that kind of person who will always prefer home, family and childhood friends to anything else. 
The photos were taken one day before I left the South of France. We went to the Christmas market of Nice with Dorian. It does not feel like true Winter Wonderland as it is +18 degrees outside. But the decorations are quite festive and beautiful. I chose a casual look but went for Christmas colours.

Gentle reminder: This season of love is a perfect occasion to enjoy our time with friends and families, to do things we used to leave for later. *Preparing a cup of tea and settling in front of TV in the living room*
