Bohemiya is hand made product with pure and 100 % natural ingredients , what makes it very gentle on the skin with great moisturizing and nice calming effect. Without the synthetic and harmful add ons, only essential oils, this product is wonderful for your everyday health routine.

Using a good-quality night cream before you go to sleep can lead to clearer, smoother, glowy-er skin. And all you have to do is sleep to make it happen -- doesn't get much easier than that. Start your morning with the moisturizing cream and keep you glow through the day.

Bohemyia is absolutely amazing skin product ! I use it almost a year and i love it.

The line has:

Day/Night creams, Face cleansing lotion, Body lotion, Hand lotion, and the amazing Exotic cream.

You can buy them exclusively at Goran Coban Salon in Chicago.


reveal your inner worldly side

The Golden Triangle antique store in Chicago inspired me for a vintage yet new look for this cozy time of the year.

 The crushed velvet top brings me to far Asia and the Plaid M Slit Skirt completes the Autumn retro ethnic European vibe.


My clothes, the way I am dressed bring me different emotions. This one made me feel like a nomad. After this photoshoot I took a trip and I am writhing this post from overseas. What a beautiful world we live in. 

dreams come true

Feminine and Fearless, Beautiful and Bold, 
Elegant and Edgy


Last Saturday Evi Simjan launched her first collection of women's shoes. The introduction of her beautiful work to Chicago's public, with a runaway show. We loved it.


Now you can order your first pair of Evi Simjan shoes on .  Offering a discount through the end of the month to thank you for the continued support through the launch of the first collection.

Essential elements of the Evi Simjan designs were custom made in Italy. Evi worked side by side with the masters to create the perfect lasts (the backbone of the shoes), heels, and soles for each design.  Together they found the right balance of sexy and sensual while adding the element of comfort. Beautiful, soft, supple leathers were also instrumental in making these beautiful shoes.

Evi then took all those elements to Macedonia, to her father’s homeland. Through research and enduring passion for shoes, she found that her family’s homeland had a rich history of quality shoemaking. There, they handmade each pair of shoes: not a stitch out of place. With exceptional Italian components and fine Macedonian craftsmanship, shoemaking has evolved into the work of art that is Evi Simjan’s first collection.

art effect

I am so excited to write about the adorable Lincoln Park store -Art Effect.

Located on Armitage Avenue  Art Effect can be “one stop shop”. They have changing selection of women’s clothing, jewelry, and accessories alongside unique home decor. You can find their gifts for every occasion,  things that are funny, whimsical, even my favorites, the eccentric ones!

Esther Fishman opened Art Effect in 1984 to sell her artist-friend’s clothing and jewelry. The shop has evolved over the years becoming a true shopping destination and modern day general store with a chic high-low mix. Jewelry cases feature fun statement pieces at affordable prices and boast a carefully curated selection of hand crafted treasures from designers including Uno de 50, Melissa Joy Manning and Julie Rofman. Clothing offerings range from perfect basics including Michael Stars tees and Splendid leggings to killer jeans from Henry & Belle and dresses from Bailey 44 and Velvet.

“We try to do trends, but things that can also go forward, that you’ll have in your closet for a long time,” -Esther Fishman.
