I am not myself today

Just think how amazing it is when you can dress up in anyone or anything you want and try to make winter go away. Tuesday was one of these days, traditionally invented to scare away winter. It is called Pust and even people my age and older dress up and have fun. I was as excited as I could be, thinking about my costume for a very long time. Finally I found inspiration in a music video. And no Pust is not completed without pictures. Guess what they are representing! Xx

A Passion for Fragrance

It is something that I absolutely love and that relaxes me so much! I've been wanting it for quite a while but never got the chance to actually buy it and now I did (Vonj Narave, Prečna ulica 2). It is called the Yankee Candle and it comes in different shapes, sizes and scents. Owning a 'honey & spice' scent, I have to buy another more appropriate for spring that I hope will quickly come. There are more than 150 fragrances which all originate from one humble story....


......."Christmas 1969. Seventeen-year-old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melted some crayons to make her a candle. A neighbor saw it and convinced Mike to sell the candle to her. With that small stake, he bought enough wax to make two candles - one for his mom, and another to sell. That was the birth of Yankee Candle.".......



I think we all agree that of all stories, this one is in the Top 10 of the most sentimentally touching. Why not touch your loved once with these candles for Valentine's days?....

#DIY: Sunny Sunday

All you need is a cup, a waterproof black marker and Acrylic paint. Easy? Yes. Apply 3 layers of paint, between each applied layer wait for it to completely dry and then draw on the cup whatever you like with any colour you like. xx

#DIY: Straight Hair

If your hair is curly and you usually straighten it for a long time and you don't like doing it, there is another way of how you can make your hair straight, without using a straightener. And it can't get any more simple!

All you need:

  • brown sugar (2-3 tablespoons)
  • a cup of water (possibly warm, so the sugar will melt)
  • a spray bottle, so that you can easily apply this mix into your hair
How to do it:
  • You have to mix 2-3 tablespoons of brown (not white!) sugar into a cup of water and wait for it to melt completely. 
  • Then pour the mix into a spray bottle and again shake it a bit so the mix becomes even. 
  • Wash your hair and use a lot of hair conditioner so your hair will be easier to comb. After that spray the mix in to damp hair. Comb the hair and the blow dry it for a better effect. You have to comb it until it dries completely or your hair will get a bit hard and messy. 
Voila!

Leather in this Stupid Rainy Weather

Leather




Don't worry, I am not a smoker and I don't plan on becoming one, but I have to say that the cigarette box goes well with the amazing Isabel Marant leather jacket and these platform sandals that I plan on buying myself as soon as spring appears.
On the other hand I should probably be thinking about posting some winter outfits, but hey! I am dreaming of warmer days, why not post my fantasies here.

Until the next post! xx

Simple Essentials

I Had to get a hold of the last good items at sales and this is what I got. (shoes were not on sale btw) I tried to get just the essentials, shirts with no pattern that would be in use for a while. I think I did good. And the shoes were a must since I ruined my ankle boots and had to find a replacement. They are very comfortable and the quality of Vagabond shoes is amazing. Xx









Mass Shoes, Stradivarius Velvet Tee, H&M the other two

Instaupdate

I have not done this in a while so yes, here are some instagram pictures from November, December AND January (at least from these 5 days that we have been experiencing 2013). It was a stressful December but we concluded it with a great New Year's party and started in style. I hope you like it! If you do you might as well check some other posts and follow me here. For more outfits and collages please visit my Polyvore site where I have many more (and I apologize but organizing photo shoots takes a lot of time especially when I do not have my own professional camera). Take care people and happy new year! Xx
