Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.

Eerie, dark and beautiful

Like painting a picture on a blank canvas, an eerie portrait of beauty is silently being called to life, unveiling an uncanny juxtaposition of dark, strong eyebrows, sculpted cheeks and plum lips feeding off porcelain skin, as splendidly captured by Tijana Lilic. A Gothic take on beauty, both dark and ravishing, seduced by the coolest of grunge undertones and rendered perfectly undone.

She’s made of galaxies and stardust

Calling it otherworldly would mean saying so much, yet so little about the kind of hypnotizing beauty replenishing Iban Montero‘s photographs.

Caught in a perpetual dance, with blue eyes nothing short of…

A little sweet, a little wild: flashback to the ’90s

Splendor in the grass, she who is no longer a child, but not yet an adult, the natural beauty slowly awaking a lazy neighborhood to life, right in the midst of summer. With a fair skin, a sculpted face and a curly hair so perfect, you might actually come to believe she is pulled out of a dream, perhaps one imagined to have commenced somewhere…

5 grunge makeup looks to try this fall

Made of distressed denim, plaid, chokers, lots of leather and velvet, the new grunge trending for fall is not a mere fashion statement, but a style that’s already shaping up what is the edgier portrait of beauty. So start thinking of the colder days as made of smouldering eyes, dark pouts, strong eyebrows and smudged liner. And if you do plan to give the glamorous-grungy…

Caught in the sweet embrace of the sixties

Past melting into present, perhaps the present eager to be immersing in the past for there’s a distinct beauty describing the enticing juxtaposition of old and new in the retro-fused editorial photographed by Thom Kerr for Black Magazine.

Beauty tending to outside circumstances

To say that it is best to always stand out is to have never had the opportunity to become one with a silent backdrop, to cave in to the circumstances, to allow every bit of the beauty around to gently wash over you. Sometimes, the extraordinary is all about finding a decor that fits and having its story be written all over you. Written in…
