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…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
