ivo blog -- jade roller - beauty tips 2

There is a theory, that it takes 21 days to form or break a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle. Well, it took me exactly 2 seconds to get into the habit of using jade roller every single morning. I can proudly say, and I’m not even kidding, that since 21st February, I haven’t missed a day.  Today is 18th June, which makes it almost four months. That’s how good this beauty tool is. Of course, the actual results can be seen only after continued daily use, however, massaging your face with a jade roller can instantly relieve tension by running it along your brows and jawline. It simply feels amazing.

I have no doubts that you have already seen it millions of times all around social media platforms – it has become a hit tool since 2017. These rollers look great in pictures, so, surely, who would miss the opportunity to put something that pretty on their feed. However, there are many more beautiful tools around my house (like the spatula I use for my porridge daily) and I don’t rush to write a whole blog post about any of them. Jade Roller is much more than a pretty thing you roll on your face.

ivoblog -- femme luxe finery-one shoulder trend 1

Wearing: jumpsuit – Femme Luxe Finery, raincoat – Escada

One shoulder trend has been around for a while now (off and on, I guess) however, I am pretty late with this one and discovered it just now. So apologies if you are already over it, I am aware of the fact that this is old news, yet that’s what I’m currently obsessed with. So obsessed that I even got two jumpsuits of the same fit from Femme Luxe Finery, my recent go-to for hot slinky looks.

Black one was the first I got and I completely fell in love with how it fits and feels. Also, it’s so versatile that it can be easily worn during either day or night. With some dressier accessories, it could even be a perfect outfit to a fancy dinner or a wedding (there are more colours to chose from, don’t stress it out, although black is beautiful). Now I have another one, just as chic, in this gorgeous houndstooth print, which is even more appropriate for a daytime look. Don’t you just love when one piece of clothing does it all? I mean, with a jumpsuit like that, all you need to do is to grab accessories you’re in a mood for and – voilà! Ready for the day / for the night / for a birthday bash / for a girly brunch / for a fashion event / for a dirty three-day techno festival – you name it. I can’t think of an occasion where you wouldn’t be able to pull off one of these. (more…)
