Couple nail polishes and a new watch



I guess there's only a few people who know that my interest in beauty and fashion started from watching youtube videos. I was in the 8th grade and admired all the youtubers who knew so many things about make-up. At the time my nerdy side was dominant. I didn't use make-up until the 9th grade (I was 15-16 years old) and paid little attention to how I looked. It was also the time when I started to grow a nail polish addiction that I've actually mentioned in one of the first posts on my blog. There was a time when I was embarrassed to say how many nail polishes I owned and I still have too many of them. Though I've started giving the colours I don't frequently use to my friends and slowly getting rid of them. 

Last weekend I bought two nail polishes for spring. I don't have any pastel colours and I was slowly getting tired of dark nails so I needed a change. I got two nail polishes from Rimmel. That pink one looks so lovely on nails and I'm currently waiting for when it's chipped so I can try out the mint one too. 

I also got myself a new watch. I think it was two years ago when I found a perfect silver watch from a second-hand shop. I've used it so many times that the metal is changing its colour, so I finally gave up and admitted I need one of higher quality. When I went to the stores to find one I noticed there's a 'dupe' for the watch I already had. I haven't regretted buying it since it clearly reminds me of my old watch.

Interview with Iclowiory

Hi! 
Some time ago I got an e-mail from the girls behind the blog Iclowiory. I've kept an eye on their blog from the beginning since they are quite young and combine really interesting clothing items. So I was really flattered when they asked if I could answer some questions for an interview on their blog. All in all I answered nine questions including some tips for bloggers who have just started blogging, so if you're interested in what I do in my spare time and what inspires me, make sure to check out their blog HERE.

Love,

Things will always get better

Hi!
I've been home and suffering from fever for four days now. I don't remember when was the last time I felt this weak and it's really frustrating me since I don't like doing nothing. I looked through some of my old photos and found these ones taken a month ago. Weather was warmer than it has been during this winter and the sun was shining brightly so I took advantage of it and wore high heeled boots and a lighter jacket.

But first, coffee

Hi! 
While doing my chemistry homework and drinking coffee I realised I haven't blogged about my 'new phone' yet. I didn't get a new phone although I've heard that question even too many times. The story dates back to last December, when there was a bloggers' flea market event. We all got goodie bags, which contained a gift card for Kinleaves - a web store that sells vinyl skins for phones and other devices. I didn't order one for my phone immediately because the gift card didn't cover the whole delivery but I managed to find a sale code from their FB about a month ago and made the purchase. I chose a quite simple light coloured one with a clear message that expresses my love towards coffee, which changed my boring black phone into a totally new one. Also, today I realised I made the right decision when choosing the skin I like the most, since recently I've had too many sleepless nights.

Houndstooth and icey roses

Hi!
This past week the temperature fell below -20 degrees and I somehow managed to take photos of an outfit just before that change. This sweater is perfect for cold days, because it's extremely warm, and it's nice to get some colour to the outfits too. I was eyeing it for weeks but I didn't want to spend 50 euros on a sweater, so I left it in the store. Surprisingly I found my size in a sale and didn't hesitate to buy it!

Balance

Hi!
I think you're familiar with the feeling when you've been away from social media and people start thinking that something has happened to you, for example you don't answer your phone for hours as you normally have it beside you all the time. I feel like the same thing has happened to my blog. I mysteriously disappeared at the end of the December and haven't blogged since. I actually tried to film a video talking about things that have happened during this past month, but so many problems occurred that I finally gave up and decided to simply write about it.
---
I've had the worse motivational crisis of my life. After getting back from Spain I spent the rest of my holiday at home. I didn't leave my room much and watched too many tv-series. After school started, I realised I have to start applying to universities since the deadline for UK univeristies was January 15th. Writing my personal statement was painful as I didn't feel any excitement when thinking about the future. Now I have to start with creating the portfolios for those universities. I've put all my energy into working on these and there's even more to be done to get them ready by the end of the month. It's hard to find balance between everything and I put the blog aside so I could concentrate on my responsibilities. I've tried to be more productive and joined a gym recently. I haven't had a good work-out experience since I quit dancing and that has changed now. I'd like to hear how you find balance in your life.

Two days ago before falling asleep I got an e-mail from Bloglovin' telling me I got my 600th follower. I wanted to thank you all for reading my blog. I cannot describe how amazed I was since I didn't think I'd get this many followers when I started this blog. I'm really grateful for your comments and visits, and I hope you're ready to see what the future brings.

Love,

Warrior

Hi! 
I hope you're having wonderful holidays! I didn't get many photos of our Christmas celebrations so I decided not to do a post about it. Instead I thought I'd take advantage of the warmer climate and shoot another outfit here. I've been dressing in entirely black many times, but the black and grey combination has always seemed a bit too dull to me. I'm not sure why I combined these together now and I was surprised too but somehow it felt right. I think one of my New Year's resolutions should be wearing more colors but on the other hand we all know how well those promises are kept. I promised myself in summer that I wouldn't buy all the cool clothes I see, only the ones I'd like to wear all the time. Well, I haven't kept that promise either as I'd wanted but I'm proud to show some of my latest purchases in this outfit. I'd love to wear these Zara shorts every day. They look like pyjama bottoms and feel as comfortable too! I've really been loving this earring I bought from a shop at Cabo de Gata area. It was a last minute purchase so I'm sorry I don't know the exact name of the shop but it seemed like a unique local boutique. That carving on the earring looks pretty unusual too and that makes wearing this jewelry feel special.
