Oh, summer! Is there anyone who doesn't anticipate its long days and warm nights? We may spend our summer vacation in a bliss on the beach, among the freshness of the mountains or travelling to destinations close and far. But whatever we choose, summer makes us feel the joy of life wholeheartedly. We relax, we calm ourselves and we use our phones for photos only, not for work e-mails and troubling news.

But are we ready for the summer? Preparation for the season when we are closest to the sun requires not only the right psychological attitude.

The skin loves the sun, but only to a degree. That is why before and after our summer adventure we need to take care of it with proper cosmetic procedures that nourish, hydrate and refresh it. Smooth skin is a must for any modern woman who has grabbed a towel and has headed to the beach. Fortunately, there are already epilation, anti-cellulite and firming procedures that don't require planning months in advance, and are reliable and with lasting results. We add a series of massages and alternative therapies that tone and relax. We choose quality cosmetics with high SPF factor and a pair of sunglasses that efficiently protect the eyes and are trendy. And we are ready for vacation.

Are we? What about clothes? Holiday always invites us to fill our wardrobes with new possessions, but a more effective and easy way to spice things up are selected pieces of jewellery charged with summer mood. Now we can immerse ourselves in the magic of summer sure that we look and feel our best.

The question of what women want and the inability to answer it conclusively are as old as the world. Or at least this is what popular culture has been trying to convince us. The truth is that women have always known what they wanted.

The Christmas and New Year's holidays are the time when we are free to concentrate on fulfilling our wishes and on everything that brings us pleasure.

The summer is coming, and with it our excitement increases. Our souls crave the caress of the sun rays and the sea, the light clothes and the journey that we can finally take on. But are our body, face, skin and hair ready as well?
It is often said that a woman’s soul is а complex mystery, difficult to solve, and the moods and de- sires of ladies are changeable, vague, and sometimes deprived of logic. It is true that women are differ- ent and everyone has her own individual longings.
To give or to receive presents? Some people prefer the former, others – the latter, yet others love to do both. What unites them all is that regardless of the occasion, the tradition fills the hearts of everyone involved with joy, happiness and warmth.
Gifts are one of the best ways to say "I love you" to the people we cherish. And the best time to do it, outside of special events in life, are the Christmas and New Year's feasts.
Summer is a special season. It is the only part of the year of which we think about long before it has arrived.
No matter if the winter in question has been mild. The very thought about the coming summer inevitably begins to excite us long before the season's actual beginning. The warmth! The vacation! The planning! The long days and the short nights!
Historians say that gifts are a pillar of human civilisation.
The Christmas and New Year's celebrations in 2020 will be as never before. Unlike other years, this December we will forget about the ease with which we planned trips, meetings with friends, parties and family gatherings. But this should not discourage us.
What do we, women, need to be happy?
They say you cannot buy happiness with money. It is true, in principle... until the moment when we see the shining eyes of our beloved one when they open the carefully packaged gift for a birthday, holiday or St Valentine.
