Travel Vlog: Nakhchivan (Azerbaijan)

posted in: Travel | 2

Last weekend I travelled to Azerbaijan’s isolated enclave, Nakhchivan, which is wedged between Turkey, Armenia and Iran. Known as the land of Noah, it shares no land border with mainland Azerbaijan and the only access to it is by airplane.

Nakhchivan is the oldest city of Azerbaijan. Its geographical position, fauna and flora and its ancient cultural monuments, make this a very unique place in the world.

I look forward to reading your comments.

Topshop Lookbook: Striped Dress & Booties

posted in: Fashion, Looks | 4

Spring is here and I am feeling the warm weather coming to Baku. After being spoiled by being in Florida, where it is warm all the year, this is very good news. Even though this is a windy city (as you can see in these pictures), it is time to go out and enjoy its beauty.

This outfit is simple and elegant at the same time. I bought the dress and the booties in Topshop, which is in Port Baku Mall. In Baku you can find a lot of brands, shops and also very good deals.



Tyrolean Trending to welcome the Spring

Austria has been one of my favorite countries since I visited it when I was a teenager. Its landscape, history, music, art, architecture and fashion made me fall in love with it forever.

Traditional Austrian Attire inspired me to create this outfit. I am not the first one because it was in this region where Coco Chanel found the inspiration for the four-pocketed braid-trimmed jacket that would become her legacy.



Creating illusions with dresses and shoes

I recently wore this outfit to an event. I greatly appreciate how easy it is to complement this dress with accessories. In these pictures I am wearing my basic black Aerosoles shoes with great effect. Imagine what it can look like with some color.


For celebrations and countless other occasions, this Ralph Lauren Sleeveless Illusion Dress is the ultimate classic. It has a dedicated ballet neckline, ribbed belt detail at the waist and a beautiful paneled skirt which gives it a subtle sense of sophistication.

Grand Canyon & Las Vegas Travel Vlog

posted in: Lifestyle, Travel | 0

This was one of the most awesome trips that I have taken in my life.
The majestic Grand Canyon National Park has such spectacular scenic views and a magical environment that it is impossible to capture its magnificence with a camera or even in words.
After that, I enjoyed the MGM Grand Hotel, buffets, shopping, casinos, exploring the Strip, concerts, and spectacles of Las Vegas.

Thanks for watching!

Tip’s on a healthy diet to live young and happy

posted in: Beauty, Lifestyle, Wellness | 0

Hi beauties!

Many people ask me about my diet and my way of eating because I eat a lot, but I am slim. I also have a lot of energy and rarely get sick. This is because I follow the Macrobiotic diet.

I learned most of my cooking skills from my mother, who is a great cook. I have worked all my life in communications and branding, but cooking was also one of my many interests because we are what we eat.

This is not a diet per se. It is more a philosophy of life which provides meaning for how to live and inspiration to change perspectives and habits. Macrobiotics is the practical application of the natural laws of change. The term comes from the Greek: “macro” meaning great, and “bios” meaning life.

How I created a 1940’s look for the Marine Ball

posted in: Beauty, Fashion, Looks | 0

The first week I arrived in Baku I attended my first social event: The Marine Ball at the Four Seasons Hotel. However, I still hadn’t received my belongs, so I didn’t have an evening dress available. I only had a bag with basic makeup and clothing articles.

I did not yet know the city in order to go shopping so my best option was to wear the Pleated Dress from Zara that I bought a month before in Manhattan. It was a simple dress, but I knew I could make something beautiful with it.

The most important factor to making a look is not necessarily the dress or its brand, but the knowledge and creativity to do it. This Zara dress inspired me to create a 1940’s look. Even being in a new city without most of my tools, I knew I could do it.

I always have admired actresses like Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake. Creating a vintage look is a definite art form, and getting just the right look takes practice and time.
