Get Your Nerd On!

 
 
 
  Today was one hectic day for me. I am preparing for an unexpected trip to Spain (I am sacrificing myself to go with my husband on his work trip J) and there are too many things to finish before I go. And the fact that it rained almost the whole day doesn’t make running these errands any easier. I also finally decided to get back into a healthier lifestyle and signed up for an outdoor boot camp 2/week for 8 weeks. I got a great deal for $29 on Living Social website. I think this is the best way to try out something you haven’t done before. Some people have said to me that it’s not fair to only go to these classes because of the low price, because we are just abusing the deal. Well I think quite the opposite. If it were not for this type of a deal I would never had tried yoga. And now that I have, I love it…I just have to get my butt off the couch and sign up for a class. It’s just a hard time finding a good one in my area. So a friend of mine and I signed up for this boot camp class and today was the second day. Despite our deep desire to make it to every one of those classes, we both decided to ditch it due to our other obligations. Let me tell you, we both felt relieved when it started raining again. We felt like we had a really good excuse now.
One of those errands I mentioned above was taking pictures for this post. I have several other outfits already ready, but for some reason they did not feel right for today. I’m sure you can tell by now that my favorite piece of clothing are jeans. I have about 20 pairs. I know, because my mom points that out every time she comes to visit. I also know how many shoes I have because of her J. This is again a more casual outfit. I got these jeans in Zara last year when I was in New York for my sister’s birthday with a group of girlfriends. They are not exactly the boyfriend jean style. They are a combination of that and harem pants style. A style of which I am a huge fan. I remember the look on my sister’s and my friends’ faces when I showed them the jeans… it was not a positive one J. They did admit later that they liked them once the outfit was put together. I paired them here with one of my favourite pumps that I got in boutique WM as my friend and I call it (Walmart J) for only $25. I have been wearing them for about year and half now. And I wear them a lot, yet they continue to survive. A cute little tshirt from WM as well and a military inspired jacket from Marshalls. The whole outfit (excluding the clutch) was $100. You can also wear these jeans with cute little flats instead of heels, they will look just as great. Hope you like it! Ciao!

PS. Remember that promise I made in my very first post, that I will keep my future posts brief? Well, it looks like I just broke that promise today. Ooops!

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…
