Shades of Blue – Armani dress

I would like to start by saying Thank You to all my followers for your feedback on my facebook page and for the huge participation in the Giveaway competition! This blog today is not just about the clothing. Read until the end.

The Look

In this occasion, I found a lovely area in Malta to shoot this gorgeous and elegant short Armani dress. I called the blog “Shades of Blue” evidently because of all the different pantone colours on this silk dress from the 2016 summer collection, currently available atRebelli. I matched it with this Runway Bauletto bag in printed calfskin by Armani and these nude stiletto shoes by Mineli Malta. This look is something I would wear to a day event in summer. If I change the hairstyle and replace it with a day hat and replace the large bag to a purse, it would also be suitable option for a daytime wedding.

How to Get Rid of the Breakup Blues

One of the things I like to do when I blog, apart from sharing with you beautiful clothing items and holiday destinations is to share my personal thoughts and experiences in life, and to try to give positive energy to some of you out there who sometimes feel lost and sad because you are going through a rough patch.

Last week, it broke my heart to see a young dancer break out into tears because she just broke up with a boyfriend. She is an incredibly beautiful lady. She reminds me of the Hollywood actress Jody Steel with a bubbly character and a very big heart and she would make any man drool. Beautiful ballet and contemporary dancer too. Anyways, we had a little chat in between dance takes, and because I have had my fair share of ups and downs in relationships before I tied the knot, I had a little advice to give her which hopefully will help her get through this sad patch.

Here are my 10 personal tips on what to do when you just break up.

1. If you feel an impulse to text endlessly, to tell him how much you still love him and how stupid he is, don’t. Call some friends instead.

2. Begin a new workout routine. You will feel better immediately.

3. Change something in your current look. Get a splendid hair cut or a conditioning treatment or find some new hairstyle you have not tried before, just to make you feel good.

4. Rebound with one exceedingly hot guy, if that’s what you want, and then give yourself some time to decompress and remember who you are. Avoid posting it on Facebook or Twitter though!

5. Stop checking his Facebook profile and that of his friends to see where they have checked in and which girls he is hanging around with. Boys are usually craving some attention and they want to make you believe that they are so happy now and having so much fun. Trust me, it’s all a fascade. Ignore it all.

6. Plan a holiday or a weekend acitivity with your girly friends who probably have missed your company and just remember what fun it is to be YOU and to be free again.


7. Strengthen yourself first. Now you are bruised and your ego has been beaten a little. Do things to gain your old confidence back and that will attract so much more positivity in your life and positive people who are interested in you.

8. Be nice to your ex. Without seeming too needy, tell him you still care for him and give him that space he needs to miss you or realise that the decision that was made might actually be the right one for both of you.

9. Every ending is a new beginning. Remember that when one door closes another ten open, and you know that famous saying “one man’s trash is another one’s treasure?” Well if one person does not wish to enjoy your company, I’m 100% certain that someone else would treasure every minute with you! Plenty of fish in the sea…

10. Last but not least .. Smile and be happy. Be grateful for all you have in life and not what you don’t have. You are blessed with health, freedom, a good life, family and friends who love you. A partner is just a bonus. What is important is YOU. Love yourself and be happy for all that you have and all that you have learnt from this experience.


Have a look at all these tips and believe me, if you do some of these things, you will feel better and achieve good results in no time.
