Some underwear brands researches say that up to 80% of women are wearing wrong bra size! This is quite shocking but looking back at my own years long search of finding a perfect bra in terms of fit and comfort I actually think this statistic might be true.

My cup size has changed during last two years since I had a baby but generally I can say I am a 85 B. Usually I wear wired bra's with minimal padding. I own a lot of bras including popular bralettes and padded push ups but I daily wear something in the middle of the two which is wired but soft organic cotton seamless bra in neutral colors (black, nude or white). Generally I have been avoiding wearing more structured pushups on a daily basics as my chest felt sore once I would take the pushup bra off after wearing it them for more then just a few hours.

NEW KIND OF PUSH UP BRA

Last several weeks I have been testing new kind of push up bra - Upbra®Upbra® Cleavage Enhancing bras use the new patented ActiveLift® technology to give more cleavage to smaller cup sizes and more lift to women with larger cup sizes than any other bra. 


CONTROLLED LIFT

Upbra is designed to give women with smaller breasts the cleavage which they would hardly get with usual push up bras. Also, the Upbra provides women with larger breasts lift they always wanted. Upbra has a special cleavage control straps in the bottom inner front side of the bra which allows you to control your lift, this is the heart of their ActiveLift® technology. 


At the bottom of each Upbra bra/swim tops is the locking system that let you lock in the cleavage look you want. You just need to hook the cleavage control straps into the slot position you prefer. To get more cleavage, you just need to move the Cleavage Control Strap hooks into a locking slot farther from the center. The farther away the loops are from the center, the greater your cleavage.


STAY UP STRAPLESS

What surprised me the most about Upbra is how well it holds and lifts breasts when worn strapless. the Upbra® Miraculous Stay-Up Strapless Bras have a specialty formulated grip around the band of the bra that will keep your girls up, even when going strapless. This strapless lift up bra also comes with bra straps for when you it's not a strapless kind of day.


The grippy hearts on the inside of the bra and swim cups have been added to the Upbra bras & swim tops to ensure that your cleavage will stay up throughout the day.

BEFORE & AFTER

In comparison to all the other bras I wore through the years I can say that the Upbra provided me with the most accurate cup fit, comfort level, lift and hold that I need. I like that they even have the mobile app which helps you determine your bra size. If you decide to order Upbra through their online shop and for some reason you don't like it, you can return it no questions asked.

In one of my recent blog posts I featured one part of Unique Travel Set - jumpsuit which can also be worn as pants which I styled with chunky sweater and a hat. 

Unique Travel Set is a set of 7 perfectly designed and harmonized pieces of clothing packed in a fashionable and multifunctional fabric bag. The set consists of pants, leggings with breathable net, a long shirt, a multifunctional dress, a cap, a belt and removable long sleeves and it all comes in its own multifunctional bag. It weights only 1.7 kilos or just under 4 pounds. 


Luxury Unique Travel Set has also tule scarf and tule t-shirt pictured bellow which ads a bit of sass and a bit of sexy to your classic black outfits.



In today's post I am posting a dressy look where I have styled tunic dress from the set with black Stuart Weitzman thigh high suede boots and Gucci belt. The short sleeve tunic dress features loose fit, it can be worn off shoulder and it has a sheer tule back and sheer tule patching under arms. The tunic has elastic band which allows you to adjust it's length so it can be tunic, mini or knee length dress. 


Removable sleeves can be useful addition when you wear a tunic dress without a blazer or a jacket which makes this set an appropriate year around go to outfit set for your short travels or a daily use. 


What I found is that Unique Travel Set really looks best and most complete for each of us when we style it with our own personal touches and accessorize in the way that best fits our daily lives.

I personally change my outfits 2-3 times per day. In the morning I literally jump out of the bed and have just about 2-3 minutes to dress as I spend most time trying to persuade my toddler daughter to let me dress and change her for school.


I usually wear the leggings or pants from Unique Travel set in the morning with a sports top (so my sporty version of it). I run to the gym right after I drop Anabela to school. Next, I run home and change for work (yes, I dress up most days although I work from home office). This is when I combine my tunic dress with leggings and comfy cashmere sweater blazer in nude and a belt to create a waist.

If I need to run to the meeting outside of the home office I just grab my boots, coat and hat and replace my sweater with more business like blazer.

Voila! Morning through evening kind of set!


Every Winter we make orders of ten kilo at the time of organic mandarine oranges from nearby farm here in Barcelona. We eat them, juice them and make delicious desserts with them all Winter long. One of my favorite recipes taken from one of the mom & baby Facebook groups and tweaked a bit to be healthier for my baby daughter Anabela is this mandarine & coconut bundt cake.

My favorite thing about this cake is that is quick to make and it doesn't require me to do a lot of mess in the kitchen and it makes a very refreshing, fruity dessert.

To make recipe healthier I replaced white with brown sugar and butter with coconut oil in the same quantities. If you would like more zesty taste keep peel on 3 mandarine oranges and remove it from two.
I tried to make this cake with whole grain flour and it did not came out that well so I would not recommend trying it. Because I did try to make this cake keeping the peel on all mandarine oranges and it was a bit to zesty especially for a baby, for milder taste I recommend to just keep them peel on one or two.

INGREDIENTS

 5 mandarine oranges
100g brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g coconut oil
3 eggs
200g white flour
100g coconut flour
1 baking powder

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F.
2. Cook mandarine oranges by cooking them in water (3 peeled and 2 with peel on) until boils (2min aprox). Rinse them and replace the water. Cook them one more time until water boils. Blend them in a blender.
3. In a seperate big bowl mix coconut oil, eggs and brown sugar with hand blender. Add mandarine mix to this mix and combine well. Slowly add coconut flower, white flower and baking powder and mix to combine.
4.  Poor the batter into a greased (I greased it with coconut oil) bundt cake mold (it is supposed to be a sticky mixture) and bake it for 45 minutes on 190C/275F. Let it cool a bit and turn it upside down on a clean cloth.

I hope you try this cake and that your family loves it as much as mine does!
Bon appetite!


Unique Travel Set is a set of 7 perfectly designed and harmonized pieces of clothing packed in a fashionable and multifunctional fabric bag. The set consists of pants, leggings with breathable net, a long shirt, a multifunctional dress, a cap, a belt and removable long sleeves and it all comes in its own multifunctional bag. It weights only 1.7 kilos or just under 4 pounds. 

The Unique Travel Set comes in four sizes (and it includes petite and tall options - YAY!) and is available in Diamond Black, Coal Gray and Golden Beige colors. The ladies behind this set are designer Katarina Dzale and business manager Raseljka Maras.

WOMEN BEHIND THE SET

First thing I noticed when I met Katarina Dzale in Croatia who is a designer part of duo who made this set is the calm and the positive energy she projects. Mind you, I am not the spiritual, yoga, positive energy, mindfulness, zen type. I am honestly more of a manically organized, can't stop, won't stop, sleep is for losers, virgo looney who used to think she can't be bothered to stop and take time to self-reflect, self reevaluate and take time to breath and be alone. Katarina is truly one of the women who got me inspired to take time to get to know me (I don't think she knows that). 





Second thing I noticed is that her clothing designs, her environmentally conscious ways of thinking about designing are not always commercial, they are often ahead of our times, they never focus on the brand name nor her as a designer, she stays outside of the spotlight. 

MY FIRST THOUGHTS ABOUT UNIQUE TRAVEL SET

At first, when I saw the Unique Travel Set presentation online I was skeptical about having a set of clothing pieces made out of the same material as my only a carry 'go to travel wardrobe'. I loved the design of most pieces in the set, the only items I thought I would not use were fabric belt, removable sleeves and a cap however I had a really good feeling about this set so I backed it up on Kickstarter. 




Several weeks later I received it in mail in Croatia where we were on vacation and tried the leggings first. The first thing I noticed that they were long enough for me (which is usually never the case because I have long legs), also the fabric was super soft and light. I traveled in them to Barcelona and they are really, really comfortable and breezy. 

THE PREMIUM COMFORT

Upon our return to Barcelona I wore the set more and more frequently, different pieces almost on daily basics. All of the pieces fit me perfectly and in black are so easy to combine with other clothing. I could have probably ordered size Small (Tall) for more snug fit as the material has enough stretch but for my lifestyle and constant running around all day looser fit will do perfectly. 




My favorite features of this set are unbelievable comfort, styling versatility (you can truly wear pieces from this set as part of formal look) and quality. I wear and wash items from this set over and over again and the color and structure remained untacked. 

STYLING VERSATILITY 

I love that the Unique Travel Set is put together in a way that you can really style it for workout, for work, lounging at home or fancy dinner or a party. My Unique Travel Set is black and consists of leggings, jumpsuit, t-shirt, dress, bag, belt, cap, removable sleeve, sheer tule scarf and sheer tule loose fitting top.I wear leggings, dress and jumpsuit the most and I love playing with removable sleeves and tulle scarf which I just figured out how to work into my personal style once I wore them several time.

We shot this post about 10 days ago, since, I have worn at least one piece from Unique Travel Set a day and I haven't traveled further then my local park. Clothing in this set are truly the most comfortable pieces of clothing I have ever purchased (and trust me, I buy a lot of clothing) and they definitely come loaded with positive energy! 

In next several posts I will show how I style my Unique Travel Set for various different occasions.
