AND OFF WE GO


So how do you start your very first blog? What do you say first? How to intrigue a reader and make yourself visible in this huge ocean of blogs available today? Do you start slow or do you just jump in and learn to swim as you go?  Well I thought about it for a while, and the more I thought, the harder it got to decide. I am not usually an indecisive person, but this was something completely new to me and I have to admit, it scared me a bit (read a lot!). And then I ran into some technical difficulties with my domain…and it seems it was just one thing after another that was preventing me to start, but I decided today was going to be the day.
Let me start off by telling you all why I started a blog. For one I am told I talk too much. So I thought I would put it in writing instead, to give a break to my loved ones. J But it is true that when I get excited finding a great deal, a piece of jewellery, or clothing that is a bit different, my husband (who unfortunately is exposed to way too much girl talk for his own good) does not share that excitement with me. At least not as much as I would like him to. So maybe some of u will get at least a bit as excited as I do. J I actually wanted to do this for myself. I love fashion blogs and I thought I would try and play with one of my own and see what it’s like.  I will also share with all of u my fashion finds and if I get to make someone’s shopping trip even a bit easier, help u find save a few dollars or just give you some inspiration for those days when you just can’t pick what to wear, it served its purpose!
I am someone who really loves fashion, clothes, accessories, shoes, shoes, shoes, beauty…and did I say shoes? I will be the first to admit that I do love labels, but just like many people out there, I cannot afford them, or not often. In today’s world the fashion changes so quickly, and we have all been swept into this world of consumerism that we want to have everything we see and we want to have it now. We want to change our look and our clothes as fast as they change in the fashion world. This can become expensive or impossible for us to keep up with, should we buy only the higher end pieces every time. I will try and give you less expensive options and still feel fashionable and trendy. I am a firm believer that money and labels do not give you style. We have seen way too many celebrities or reality TV personalities who prove this point, time and time again.
Now, I could go on and on about me and why I do this, but I do have to stop somewhere. So let this be it for now. I will talk to you soon again.
Ciao!

P.S. I promise…my future posts won’t be as long as this one…at least I promise to do my best and keep them short. J

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of MontrĂ©al. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…

Traveling Western Serbia & Finding Peace, Quiet & Beauty

Jeans Topshop, slides H&M, bag Louis Vuitton, lipstick Mac All Fired Up
Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I wrote anything on the blog. It’s been crazy busy time for me for many reasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Serbia for the last couple of weeks. Here’s a brief rundown. Last year has been one of the business periods of my life and I’ve been under quite a bit of stress. Due to some personal reasons which unfortunately I cannot share here, I’ve had to take some time off. I will be here in Europe over the next few months so I’m very excited about this trip. It was very hard for me to make this decision. Like most of us, taking such a huge step can cause some fear and anxiousness. But what’s that saying? Life begins on the other side of fear, right? Hopefully you will continue following me on this new journey. So first thing I wanted to do when I landed here was go to Western Serbia. There were a few reaso…
