Hola Madrid!


Hello from beautiful and warm Madrid! My very first and very quick post. I have tried to enjoy last few days without thinking too much about the blog. Then today when I finally had some free time, I wanted to post one only to realize my battery has died and I did not have a converter. It took a while to find one. Then I also got really busy just shopping so I managed to get to my room not too long ago. I go so into the shopping mood that I completely forgot to eat. I only had a croissant all day. I'm starving now, needless to say :). I'm glad I left my luggage half empty, which leaves me with enough room for new things :). I only brought 5 pairs of shoes which is amazing for me. I normally never go without 10. The hardest thing for me to pack is always jewelry because I bring a lot of rings and necklaces, just in case. To prevent them from being lost or get tangled, I bought nice little mesh drawstring gift bags (here). You can also find them for cheaper in Dollar stores. They are a great way to keep the jewelry neat and avoid any scratches. You can then place all of it in one bigger gift bag or your makeup box, or anything else that works for you. 

As for the outfit, I am leaving you for now with the outfit that was meant for this past Friday. Madrid outfits are soon to come as I finally got my battery charged. I just love mixing sporty with dressy. This is a dress/tunic from H&M which I also wear as a sweatshirt (here), but I love it as a dress. If you are not 5'3 like me and are blessed with more height and long limbs, do not attempt this at home. It will look as if you are really wearing a sweatshirt :). I wore it with one of my favourite and most comfortable pumps, hot pink clutch I wore couple of days ago and this neon necklace from Target. It goes really great with dark tights in the fall/winter as well. Hasta luego!

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

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…
