Today we are continuing with the Instagram series and how to be successful on Instagram. This is probably one of the most googled questions nowadays and I can totally understand why. Who doesn't want to be successful on Instagram? Especially if you're doing it as a Business it's quite important to have a Instagram strategy to really get the most out of it. I've been on Instagram right from the beginning and did so many things wrong that I wish I'd knew before. But one thing you should definitely know: Don't take Instagram too seriously! It's still an App to have fun with, be creative and share what you love.

I've been already thinking quite a lot about the upcoming fall and as I was mentioning in one of my previous articles- it's better to start preparing your wardrobe for fall now, so you still have time to get everything together you might need for the new season. Of course fall is all about the dark colors... burgundy, dark green, black etc... but- I actually prefer to start a bit lighter for this fall and transfer the rosy blush shades into fall. Especially when it's a rainy and grey typical fall day, you'll have a much better mood in light blush colors!
Do you like blush colors for fall?

Flare sleeved shirts have been so on trend lately and I honestly don't know why it took me so long to jump on this trend train! I've been seeing outfits with beautiful flare sleeved shirts and dresses all over social media but always thought that this trend is not going to suit me because it's a very girly trend, but I immediately fell in love when I saw this amazingly beautiful flare sleeve shirt. It has truly the most beautiful details with the cute little bows on each arm and of course the sleeves are just gorgeous. Oh- and the most important thing is: The quality is surprisingly good as well which is really important for me!
I have to say that I actually spend quite some time trying to decide how I'm going to wear this shirt, since it's definitely an eye-catcher on it's own... but I think the easy way was the best way! If you're wearing an item which is an statement piece on it's own you should definitely try to keep the rest as simple as possible. A black pair of thick leggings and some plain black heels really make the shirt stand out. When it comes to jewelry- less is more for this shirt. Because of the big sleeves I decided to skip bracelets and a watch and just focused on one ring, my favorite DIY choker and some earrings.

The Gucci Princetown slippers are probably one of the biggest fashion trends right now. I've been seeing them all over social media, in every luxury boutique and fashion magazine. They are really expensive but aren't they totally worth it?! I mean, look at them! They are perfection! If you've read my previous article you'll know that I already started with the fall 2016 topic. Fall is going to be here sooner than we think, so let's take some time to talk about the perfect shoes for fall 2016.
The transition into fall couldn't be easier with these Gucci slippers. They are so easy to wear, easy to combine and they really convey this fall feeling because of the fur on the sides. So what is keeping you away from buying your first pair of Gucci slippers? Maybe the price? Well, in fashion we have to make compromises: Selling some old shoes or clothing and accessories will bring you some extra money to spend on something new and stylish. Which ones are your favorite? Let me know in the comments down below!
Which ones are your favorite?

Fall is waiting right around the corner which means we already need to think about the upcoming fall trends. I know we are still in the middle of august, but as a true fashion lover, we need to be prepared as soon as possible. There's nothing worse than not being prepared for a new season! I always used to have the problem where a new season was starting and I simply didn't had the right things to wear. Of course we don't really want to think about jackets and coats when it's still summer but trust me, you can start so much more relaxed into the new season and don't have to run from one place to another to get everything you need together.
My personal no°1 fall must have for 2016 has to be the ripped denim jacket. Denim jackets in general have been quite big over the past couple of years, so they never really go out of trend. This amazingly ripped denim jacket was the first planned fall item I got this year and I couldn't be happier with it. It's the perfect mix between casual and chic, so you can totally combine it both ways. Fall is going to be so much easier if you have this one perfect denim jacket you can throw over almost everything!

❝Achieve natural curled lashes in two easy steps!❞ Who doesn't want to have natural long and beautiful curled lashes? Eyes are the most attracting part on people and especially for us woman it's always important to have significant and open eyes- especially when we want to attract a man. Eyes can have so much charisma and you really can see a lot in peoples eyes! When it comes to highlighting the eyes and get the best out of them, the lashes are the most important thing which is why mascara is so important for us women. With deep black mascara and beautifully curled and long lashes we get this intense look which can change our whole charisma.
Unfortunately not all of us are blessed with beautiful long natural lashes, including me. My lashes are extremely straight naturally and I was seriously suffering with it for years and years. Every time I curled my lashes and put mascara on I could literally watch the lashes falling down back in the natural straight position. It always felt like the mascara was too heavy for them. I tried a lot of different mascaras from low budget all the way up to luxury budget but it didn't changed a thing. I still remember the day a few years back when everything changed so easily!

❞Fearless, Night & Forever Sexy...❝ Victoria's Secret is probably one of the most sophisticated and one of the most sexy brands on the planet. I mean, who doesn't wish to be a VS angel? Today we are talking all about VS beauty and their amazing perfume range, so we can (at least) smell like an angel. I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of the Victoria's Secret lingerie and that's probably why I love the whole perfume and beauty range even more. I love that they have such a big variety of different scents, so there is definitely something for everyone!
I've always loved really heavy, sexy and sophisticated scents rather than floral girly scents, so the Victoria's Secret perfume corner is always heaven for me. Since there is no VS store where I live it's always something really special for me and I'm definitely always having a hard time choosing between all these amazing scents. But, over the past two to three years I've collected 3 of my absolute favorite VS perfumes to introduce to you today. Definitely click the 'continue reading' button if you wanna smell like an angel!

❝Sweatpants and Adidas Superstars for the win!❞ You really want to wear sweatpants all day everyday but feel like it's not really appropriate? Well, since fashion is a game with no rules, you can wear whatever the hell you like! But, there are a few tips and tricks you can keep in mind when it comes to wearing a full casual sweatpants look. Sometimes all we want is to feel comfortable from top to bottom but still we want a stylish touch. It's actually not that hard to create an stylish sweatpants look which doesn't look like you put zero effort in.
The key are accessories. I've talked about it already in this article, but accessories are so important to any simple look. I always like to focus on the bag and sunglasses for the eye-catcher. This look is based on a pair of simple black sweatpants paired with a casual black sweater, but because of the rose gold signature sunnies as an eye-catcher and the statement mini bag, the whole outfit looks a lot more put together. Try it yourself! Put together an super simple outfit and add some statement accessories- you'll notice the difference!

❞Typical girl problems!❝ A closet full of stuff but still nothing to wear? We all know this! Don't even try to pretend you don't- that's just a typical girl problem. But what to do on these 'I have nothing to wear' days?! Well, actually it's all about the basics. Black basics. I think I don't have to mention it again that I absolutely love black since I already talked about it in this article, but let's be honest: Black basics are the best decision on these kind of days!
If you have a few good black basics then you will definitely always find something for these days! I actually wrote an article about how important basics are, so you might wanna check that out as well. For this look I chose to go for an super duper comfortable black flared jumpsuit in combination with my favorite black blazer. Since it's still summer, I wanted to keep at least the accessories in a different ''color'', so I went with silver for that.

❝How to get thicker hair without extensions?❞ Well, the answer is quite simple and I have collected my top 5 tips for you today. Since I can remember I was obsessed with hair. I used to play around with my hair when I was super young and always braided it myself. I even learned to french braid my hair all by myself at a very young age but because I had really thin hair back then, I always did the hair of my girlfriends 'cause they had beautiful long and thick natural hair.
As the years were passing by and I got older, I experienced more and more with my hair and it strangely got thicker and thicker. Now I'm at a point where I couldn't be happier with my natural hair even though it literally went through hell the past couple of years. You can read more in this article where I was trying clip-in hair extensions for the first time ever. But in this article today, it's all about how to get thicker hair without extensions.

❞Where to stay in Warsaw, Poland?❝ Warsaw... my favorite european city, for sure! If you're following me on Instagram (@thetrendique), you'll already know that I spend the past couple of days in Warsaw for a little getaway with my mom. It's been my fifth time in Warsaw so far and I'm already thinking about the sixth time. Since I have polish roots, I always feel home whenever I'm in Poland (even if I'm staying at a hotel) and Warsaw is definitely my favorite place to be! There's just so much to see, so much beauty and architecture and the people are just the loveliest.
This time we stayed at the Westin Warsaw which was our first time in this hotel. I have to say that I was a little skeptical since I normally only book hotels I already know and stayed in, but I found a double room for two persons for an unbelievable price at the Westin so I thought I have to give it a try! Now, the question is: Would I recommend the Westin Warsaw? Hell yes! It's a luxurious five star hotel in the center of Warsaw. You can reach the central train station easily by foot (which is what we did) and the location is perfect in general.

❝Make your house a home.❞ Decorating is literally the key when you want to make your house feel like a home. Since we are all so different, we can really put our true selfs into our home decorations. I always feel like every house gets so much more personal when the owners put some effort in decorating. Now, the most important thing when decorating is to stay true to yourself. This might sound obvious, I know, but it's true! You are the one who has to feel completely comfortable and at home.
My tip is: Don't try to impress anyone with your home decor, but yourself! When it comes to finding the right decor items and shops with a great selection, it gets kind of hard. I'm more this kind of person who likes to find everything in one shop, not running from one place to another to get everything together. In Westwing, I found the best place for me. They're not only offering something for literally every taste, you can also shop totally relaxed from your couch while watching your favorite TV show.
