Shhh… girl talk

I have dreamt of my own wedding not very long ago. It was one of the most awkward things to see in a dream, to be honest, but it made me think about how it would be if I ever get married. Who would be the groom (the most important worry, really), what dress I’d have, and what ring THE ONE would put on my finger…

In Ukraine, people usually have plain gold rings to wed. In most western cultures, however, diamonds are involved. And that’s where things get hot because diamonds are a girl’s best friend at the end of the day. They are what turns and evening gown into a royal outfit.

I would want something very personal, be it an engagement ring or a wedding ring. Amongst all those diamonds offered on the market it’s very hard to find something that’s individual and suits your own style and taste. Wouldn’t it be perfect to have your jewelry “tailored”?

Not planning to marry just yet, but I do have some plans concerning a design of my own ring. I was given a tiny topaz from Sri Lanka which I want to combine with some silver and create a special ring and I’m still thinking about the design…

It’s always important to choose the right place to buy rocks. Even more so if you want to have a personal ring made. The place to do it has to be ABAZIAS. Not only can you find any type of diamond to please your desires, have it built into a ring of your choice but you can also do it ONLINE! It is a retailer that will offer you pleasant service, much space for improvisation and imagination when making your ring and, most importantly, unexpectedly reasonable prices.

Even if we don’t wear diamonds much, perhaps it’s time to rebel against all the crisis prejudices and get hold of one. In fact, in the middle of the global economic crunch, we have no choice but to look for cheaper ways to buy luxury, so diamond bargains are more than handy. After all, it is a very solid investment – and bought at quite a low price it can serve you in the future. So go on and pamper yourself (or imply it to your man).

So, all the single ladies, have you ever thought about your wedding or the ring you’d like to have then? I’d love to hear your stories.

I wish you all a magical day!

Swimming back in time

Retro-style swimwear is making its way back on the catwalks for this summer. The old silhouettes are so much more feminine than the modern minimal looks, so the vintage return makes me happy. You can't but agree that the designer have made the right choice this season.

I have also found my own photograph posing in a retro bikini. It was taken last summer, though...

Here's also a 1950s swimwear ad. There's so much modern design can learn from the vintage versatility. The old swimwear used to serve not only as swimsuits but as tops and bodies. Ah, and just look at that cape that turns into a pool dress. Enjoy.
