On the right track

Untitled Untitled

I haven't decided yet what this blog is going to be about. Or, yes I actually might have - mainly things that I find beautiful, inspiring and want to share with the rest of this world. Be it: interior design, DIY's, beautiful projects and of course, the reason I first created this little corner for; my personal style.

Funny things is, when I started my blog, I really wanted it to be fashion all the way, for the most part (even though I now cringe at my first posts, but hey, we all have to start somewhere haha). Now, I think my perception of it has changed quite a lot. I don't think I am ever going to refer to my blog as a fashion blog, because, well, first of all, it isn't. And second of all, I have realized that fashion is something I DO respect and admire, but if I compare myself to other fashionable people, I am just not that into it. It might sound illogical or stupid and quite possibly it is just a phase in my life, where other things bring out far more interest in me. But I am in a complete love/hate relationship with it. A term I sometimes thought it was a complete bullshit and I could never get its actual meaning. But now I do, it describes me perfectly. 

And what do I mean by that? I am obsessed with clothes, I shop whenever I can and for as long as I can, what the hell, I could do an all day marathon every few days if I had the money. I always check out other people's style, can't help but do that. I act like a stupid infant when I see something I like, while imagining how would I style it. BUT - I am no longer that interested in fashion magazines, I can't remember the last time I bought one, I follow the trends, however, weird and unusual street style is what feeds me, I rarely watch fashion shows, editorials never make me as enthusiastic as they should and compared to other people who shine like diamonds when talking about all of this, I just feel like an asshole. And a phony.

I am just not that into it, honestly. But, I am okay with it, because I feel so liberated by admitting this. I just don't care that much, I don't strive to achieve perfection with what I wear and I don't pretend to be some great fashionista. I just want to wear whatever makes me feel good, keeping in mind that I might look like a fucking disaster from time to time. Because hey, that's what I am sometimes. And I'm just a human. 
So, with all further respect to other fashion obsessed people out there, because, really, do not get me wrong, I'm not trying to put anyone down here and I actually admire you for being able to love the fashion world as much as I can't, but that is my truth. And it might be someone else's as well. I respect all of us, because we all bring something to it and make it what it is and the reason I had to write this was to clear this up with myself, but also to explain to my audience what can they expect from me at all.

So, as I mentioned, personal style still is one of the primary reasons why I want to post on here, so, I'll leave you with a little dose of it from two weeks ago, that I really didn't have the chance to post before, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. 

If you had read this, thank you. And please, if I do spark some interest in you, don't hesitate to follow my blog. Of course, if I don't, that's completely fine as well. :D

I am wearing: H&M burgundy beanie & chain necklace, DIY cut out tank, H&M men tracksuit shorts, DIY boots.

Last one in my "London series" of posts. It's been a pleasure going through these photos, editing them and posting them here, while reviving all the great feelings from this amazing trip. I can't wait to travel somewehere else again in the future! My heart is restless and ready for new adventures.

I hope you liked my photos, I'll put on some more when I get my La Sardina film developed, if it's any good, of course. I'm also posting this little video from my trip I edited a few days ago. The quality is not 100% perfect, since it's been filmed with my phone, but I hope it's good enough to make people watch. Enjoy!

Wearing this outfit in the middle of my hometown would be anything but casual, however, wearing it in London was just an ordinary day gone perfect. I have exaggerated all the way, just putting every new buy on. And who cared? No one. Touché.

P.S. Excuse moi for my friend's finger.

I am wearing: Camden market rounded glasses, River Island gold chunky earrings, H&M knit & maxi dress, random tights, HUF socks, Vans shoes.

Mason jars DIY


My love for beautiful things has oh so many extents to all kinds of different areas, one of them, of course, being interior design and home decor. And man, when to appreciate the flow of life any better, than at that certain moment, when you find something old and useless, just to get an immediate idea of how to transform it into something beautiful and Pinterest worthy. And that's exactly what happened to me this morning.

I was just eating my breakfast on the balcony, while suddenly I notice this old, dusty mason jar in between my mother's plants. I looked it up, it was all empty and just crying out for a DIY. So, after a quick brainstorming, I decided to do something candle related, since I always wanted a beautiful spot like that in my room. I first tried poking some holes into the cover of the jar, appearance wise, but also hoping that the candle might get enough oxygen to burn even with the cover shut and just have a little mason jar light on the side of my bed. Needless to say: fail.

But, since I had really gotten into the project, I searched for each and every candle we own at our house and got this vision of a romantic, yet cool bedside candle diarrhea. I went into the kitchen and took my mother's vintage, metal tray that we never ever use and "borrowed it" to use it as some kind of a platform. I then started applying all the candles, trying to make it look as versatile as possible. And there, before I knew it, I had this beautiful candle display in front of me and my day was complete. All I could use now is the night, a lover and some Marvin Gaye in the background. Oh yeahhh.


OOTD: New journey

IMG_6627 IMG_6639 IMG_6630

Oh boy, has it been a while for me in this big old world of blogging. Just now I have realized, it is almost three years now (just 5 days away, actually) since I first started my blog in 2010. A lot has changed in this strange span of time. I am, obviously, a bit older, my fashion sense has evolved and changed and still is changing on a daily basis. It now got to the point, where the word eclectic can be highly applicable. But as of my personality: I could almost say "same old, same old"...if you have read me before, I am practically the same old chick, except with a hint of life changes that have hit me through this time and affected my way of thinking and changed my track a bit. No biggie, though. It is a thing I bet I'm going to repeat at least once a year, for the rest of my life and it's a beautiful thought, really. How we all change constantly, while keeping the real, important parts of ourselves in place and as long as everything is for the better, I'm down with it. And it was for the better with me, believe me. It will only get better from here on. I'm grateful.

However, one thing has not changed in the slightest and I could bet my life on it, it never will. My creativity had may been resting, but it never died, in fact, it is only burning brigther now and has finally reached the point of its release. My mind is overrun with new ideas and things and words and ways and only now have I learned, that I don't need to overthink everything, I could rather use it and let it all out into this world to inspire. And this is the perfect opportunity for me to start, yet again. This blog is a part of me, it always has been, even in the worst of its times. When I went through my old posts I felt things I haven't felt in a really long time and I got very happy and very excited. I felt beauty. And right now I just know what to do. I will continue this little project of mine and make it my masterpiece, and by this I do not necessarily mean something posh or fame worthy, but I shall give this blog a chance to shine.
