Remember the "Effortless Beach Curls" series I did last summer? If you don't, you can check those posts here, here and here. And because summer isn't really summer without them laid back curls, I decided to present you my favorite products to achieve natural looking, easy to make bombshell waves. I'm leaving for my vacay tomorrow (finally!), so what better time to post a little beauty infusion. Meet my fav summer bunch!

I love discovering young and creative talents - this endeavour seems to be becoming the main theme of my blog and I couldn't be more satisfied that blogging has (quite unconsciously) put me on this path. So here I am, happy to present you the fascinating photography of a 19-year-old Elena Pezzetta. She's a freelance photographer from Bari (south of Italy) whose work is absolutely inspiring, a bit dreamy and realistic at the same time, and just enough melancholic for those with a more gloomy taste. Elena's passion lies in creating new worlds through photography. Her vision extends beyond the realm of the camera, creating images that can be quite surreal. Each image is a story for itself. Girl's got an appetite for adventures, new experiences, and she says that testing her own strength gives her the shivers. She's deeply connected with nature and that's why she's gonna fly over the Amazonian rain forest when she's all grown-up and rich. There's nothing Elena enjoys more than listening to the eternal sound of waves crashing, because it reminds her of her (eternal) struggle between creation and destruction. Does she imagine her life without art? Nope, can't do. She claims, totally unpretentiously, that she doesn't know if she's an artist, but she sure knows that her life would be a misery without art. She's currently studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the same time practicing photography and perfecting her writing skills. I see a bright future for this young lady, she sure is the living definition of creativity! Check for yourself.

It's been a hell of a long time since my last Insta or any kind of a more personal post. Time just flies when you have to ... study. Yep, I was a major study cocoon for the last two months or so, but I just want to get this Uni shiz done and be over with it, so I guess the suffering behind the books is kinda inevitable. Also, all the studying somehow drained every bit of creativity in me and now I'm stuck in writing this Insta post and wondering what the hell have I been doing for the last few months. If I quote my fellow blogger Sonia: "I figured it might be fun to look back upon the past six months and see just how little I've managed to accomplish." Seriously, it seems like all I've been doing (apart from trying to memorize too many psychometric properties) was eating burgers, sporting a bit, and then eating some more (bikini body, what does that mean?). I'm not too worried though since I'm quite sure summer's got some dope adventures and diversity in store for me.

If you're a social network freak like myself you may have come across a photo or two that looks like it had a very elegant vintage filter applied to it. In fact, you probably have come across more than just one or two considering the fact that Instagram is one of the most popular mobile apps. It can be a great tool to help uncover your photography skills (which in my case didn't really happen), but for most of us it's mainly a tool for scrolling through our favourite feeds and feel suffocated by fabulousness: there's one person who is paddling on the surfboard at Bayron Bay, another one snapped away a gorgeous sunset in San Fran, yet another is sipping Champagne in Singapore Airlines business class en route to Sao Paulo, while the fourth is ... OK, you get the picture. But let's face it: everyone's life looks better on the internet than it does in real life. It's not the fanciness that catches my eye, though. It's the refined attention to details, the perfect positioning of objects, the light, the simplicity. And my friend Tjaša is a master of all those things. With over 27.000 followers she's one of the queens of Instagram. Period. She's also just moved to Dubai and I'm drooling over every single pic that she posts - the beaches, cafés, skyscrapers ... Oh, and last but not least, she finally set up a blog called Tjaša In Her Own World, where she writes about living in the UAE, various lifestyle topics and much more. Enough with the talking, meet the very lovely Tjaša!
