Hi and welcome!
I am Eugenia Zhenya Bulah, a creative director and stylist from Moscow currently living in Budapest. After receiving my degree in fashion / interior styling and one in finance I have been working in these two fields ever since. In order to connect these different worlds, I launched a creative consulting firm that provides creative and marketing solutions for companies, start ups and private clients.
While working as a stylist my works have been featured in magazines, exhibitions, fashion websites and I have partnered with multiple brands, designers and organisations along the way. (check out my press features and my portfolio website)
In 2007 I have launched my personal blog Diamonds and Spikes driven by my passion for all fashion, beauty and art. I love the mixture of quality and rebellion, that’s where the Diamonds and Spikes name comes from. I wanted to have a platform to be able to share my EVERYTHING. Due to my education in fashion and interior styling, I try to share as much as I can and not only stick to my outfits. I write about fashion, beauty reviews, I share my personal thoughts on different topics, provide fashion tips and try to share as much knowledge as I can with the rest of the world.
In 2015 I launched The Magazine part of my blog that concentrates on fashion and beauty news, event recaps and consists of a much broader spectre of topics that I curate to my interest. Same year I have also launched a Shop My Style guide which is a free personal shopping service that is updated from reader’s emails and requests. I received questions and share guides for my fans in 6 categories.
The most special part of the blog is the fact that it is very opinionated and honest. I call things their names and am not afraid to express my often sarcastic opinions within the chosen topics. That’s me.

„I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern – wearing head-to-toe designer has become a bit passe. It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”
