Today: Casual

Hi everyone!

Welcome to new post! As you see, It's named "Today: Casual" which means we're going to talk about fashion! Casual fashion. In older posts I've written about elegant and festive clothes, but I have  said nothing about everyday pieces. What exactly we wear in different daily occasions? In which clothes we feel the most comfortable? Does casual can look elegant? You can read below what I have to say as answer on these question. 


 Cinema day



When I'm going to the cinema, I usually wear outfit like this one. Ripped jeans with nice shirt and leather jacket. Converse sneakers are my must have and bandana in appropriate color.  This leather backpack is needed for carrying money, coke or water, phone and other. I love these pieces and they're very comfortable when you spend a lot of time out.



Let's go shopping!


Visiting all that stores and boutiques can be very stressful and hard job. So, for every shopping, you need comfortable shoes. I always chose flats with soft sole. For these flats, I've chosen a pair of good looking jeans, casual shirt and red bag. Also, you can always add some jewelry so I put this silver necklace as a nice detail.


Chillin' with friends



I love this outfit very much! It's so girly because of this adorable light pink color, but also comfortable and stylish! Cute backpack matches perfect with gorgeous sneakers and bomber jacket. Of course, you can put a bracelet in the similar color as color of your other details. Headphones are amazing accessories!


School girl


Every student will understand the lovely side of  this outfit! :D Good shoes, comfy oversized hoodie, great pair of jeans and enough big backpack for all these books. You should feel free and comfortable in the school, because lessons could last very long and be stressful. And remember, If you feel good, you will look good, and when you look good every boy will like you! So don't worry for your clothes, you have not to look as barbie or model in the school, It's ridiculous!



These days...

I really don't have anything to say about this "outfit". You all know how we feel when period comes, so the most important things are warm clothes, warm blankets and warm drinks. Enjoy and don't worry how you're looking then, we all feel "awful".



Gym time


Here's everything you need for the gym. Comfortable leggings, sports top, hoodie, towels, sports bag, a bottle of water, some fruits, weights and headphones.  Enjoy working out! 



Chilling outside



Outfit for these girls who love black, Harry Potter, and good chill! I'm very often in this mood, so black is always a good choice for me. So in love with this jacket.


Cold Autumn



Classic outfit when outside's cold. UGG boots, burberry scarf and light brown cardigan are absolutely my favorite pieces for autumn. As a jewelry you should add a nice watch or some rose gold necklace.


Rainy day



For a rainy day our choice  are always a good boots, umbrella and jacket. This outfit is so simple and girly so every teenage girl can wear It. You'll look so cute and saved from a rain!


Camping out



If you're an adventure girl who loves climbing, camping and being outside, you exactly know what you're needed for your adventures. Sleeping bag, a big backpack and safari jacket would be my choice for this occasion. Of course comfortable sneakers and clothes are absolutely must have!


Maybe you've noticed that I used word "comfortable" for almost every outfit description. But that's the point, right? Casual should be comfortable! You can skip the skirts for a while, 'cause you're very pretty in the pants also! :D

French bestseller: Is it really worth reading?



Hi everyone!

How are you?

Today I'm writing some kind of book review. I think I've never wrote a book review on blog, so why not? Well, I'm sure you've heard for Guillaume Musso and his books. If you haven't, Gullaume Musso is one of the most popular novelist in France today.  When I've heard for this novelist, from my friends, I was wondering: "Are his books so good as they're talking?". Couple days from then, I've seen his book in the store window but I have not bought It. Why, you're asking? I was skeptical so I just walked past that. Time was flying, and I forgot about this book. Almost 2 years passed, and my best friend Emma told me that she wants to read my "Milk and Honey" book, so in exchange for It, she will give me one her book. I accepted. Actually, she gave me 2 her books. I was looking for their author and I've read: Guillaume Musso. At the same moment, I remembered what happened two years ago, in the bookstore. "I'm going to read them, nothing costs me!" - I said.

And I started reading...

🕮

The first book I've got is French bestseller Where Would I Be Without You?

Parisian cop Martin Beaumont has never really got over his first love, Gabrielle. Their brief, intense affair in San Francisco and the pain of her rejection still haunt him years later. Now, however, he's a successful detective - and tonight he's going to arrest the legendary art thief, Archibald Maclean, when he raids the Musee d'Orsay for a priceless Van Gogh. But the enigmatic Archibald has other plans. Martin's pursuit of the master criminal across Paris is the first step in an adventure that will take him back to San Francisco, and to the edge of love and life itself. 

Book is great! I love this one. The topic of the book is dramatic and amazing. When you start reading, you don't even notice how many pages you've turned. So, this book broke all prejudices I had about French bestseller. It's really, really good. I recommend to you.

9 / 10

 The second book is A call from an angel

In a packed airport lounge, a man and a woman literally run into each other, spilling their belongings on the floor. After a brief shouting match, they go their separate ways.Madeline and Jonathan have never met before, and should never have met again. However, as they hurried to collect their things, they switched mobile phones. When they realise their mistake, they are already more than 6,000 miles apart: She is a florist in Paris, and he owns a restaurant in San Francisco.It doesn’t take long before they give in to temptation and explore the contents of each other’s phones. An indiscretion on both their parts, but which leads to an unexpected revelation: their lives are linked by a secret that both thought would stay buried forever…

I must say, I was thrilled. It didn't happen long ago that I just can not stop reading the book. It happened to me with this book, and then I read them all from Musso. A great writer, after whose novels I have been under the impression for days. Recommendations from the heart for this one, and all other novels from Musso.  


9,5 / 10



The question was, Is this French bestseller worth reading and the answer Is: Yes! Absolutely. You should read these books, especially If you're a fan of thriller, fiction and romance.

Hi everyone!

What's up?
It's 11 PM and I'm writing this post. Generally, I don't prefer to write at this time, because I'm usually tired and without an inspiration so posts would be very bad that I don't want on my blog. But now, I'm thinking about things I want to buy or do during this year, so I've got inspiration to make a post about my wishes. If you're interested in, read below!







1. Guns N' Roses tee - I'm a big fan of rock and roll music, so I want so much this shirt, It looks amazing! I think It would be great in combination with leather skirt or pants.

3. Pair of good black boots - every girl needs them.

4. New quality camera - as a blogger, I need new camera now!

5. Pair of jeans - I need some good jeans.

Dates from '50s to '00s



Hi everyone!

Today I was inspired to write about dates.
Valentine's Day is coming soon, so you probably know how will look all that romantic dates (romantic dinner at fancy restaurant, night club or watching movies, with bottle of wine I guess..) . Whether it’s your first date or your 110th, sometimes it’s hard to come up with something more original than dinner and a movie. But, have you ever imagined how looked dates in 1950 for example? To spark your creativity, I found on the Internet an ideas for your perfect date from a certain decade.

The '50S

Start your date night off with a little comfort food from a cute vintage diner. Whether you order meatloaf or pancakes, pair it with a sky-high malt or shake—with extra whipped cream and two straws, of course. After you’ve had your fill, check out a vintage flick on an al fresco big screen (check out drive-ins.com for locations). Don’t have a drive-in close to home? An outdoor movie should do the trick! Pair your '50s-inspired date with red suede pumps, leather leggings, and an off-the-shoulder shirt, à la Olivia Newton John in Grease.  





The '60S

Show your date you’re the definition of cool by taking them to a Woodstock-esque outdoor fall music festival. While there are always great summer shows, fall’s the perfect time of year to take in a festival during the cooler months. If there isn’t one happening near you, check out outdoor concert venues. Get your groove on by rocking a floral-inspired maxi dress with comfy sandals to keep you dancing all night long.





The '70S

Buy a cheap lava lamp and/or disco ball off of Craigslist or eBay, and set them up in your bedroom before dimming the lights. Then put on your best flares, a slick pair of booties, and your favorite comfy T-shirt—and wait for your partner to come home and take them all off of you so you can try a little '70s-style "swinging" in your newly decorated pad.





The '80S

Strap on some skates, and take your date to an old-school roller rink—complete with flashing lights, cool tunes and the perfect opportunity to hold hands while you find your balance. Who knows; maybe you’ll fall in love underneath glow in the dark stars after a few laps around the rink! Rock your favorite neon pieces to keep the 80’s vibe going all night long.





The '90S

Remember that iconic scene from the opening credits of Full House—the one with the whole family picnicking under the Golden Gate Bridge? (Every '90s kid knows what we're talking about!) Recreate your own version while overlooking a picturesque view in your city. To keep up with the '90s theme, rock your favorite grunge look (including ripped denim and plaid) while enjoying your picnic spread: Hi-C juice boxes, Lunchables, and any other retro snacks you can get your hands on! 





The '00S

Tell your guy that if he really wants to impress you, he can show you that you’re man enough to take you to a boy-band concert (really!).  Rock the arena with your favorite concert tee, cut-off shorts, and Converse sneakers to keep your look chic and comfy.






What would be your perfect date?

Book Hangover


Hi everyone!

One more post about books, I know.  For this one, I found an inspiration in Guillaume Musso’s book: “Call from an angel”. This book has put strong impression on me. I’ve read It almost 2 days and I liked It so much. But, what happened when I finished this book? Book hangover.

There is a definition for Book hangover and It says:

book hangover is condition in which attachment to a bookor series that has ended causes the reader traumatic emotional distress. It usually lasts for one to two weeks, or until a new book of higher-than-average quality enters the reader's life.

Well, book hangover is your condition when you read a book. You probably have a strong unknown feeling of sadness because you finished the story which you really liked. Just like you left the world where you previously was.  You broke up a relationship with book characters and you have to move on with your life. Exactly this feeling I have every time I finish a good book. The same situation was yesterday when I read “Call from an angel”. My impression is too strong , so I can’t start reading a new book soon.


Why is this book so special for me? What’s Its content?

New York, JFK Airport.
In a packed airport lounge, a man and a woman literally run into each other, spilling their belongings on the floor. After a brief shouting match, they go their separate ways.

Madeline and Jonathan have never met before, and should never have met again. However, as they hurried to collect their things, they switched mobile phones. When they realise their mistake, they are already more than 6,000 miles apart: She is a florist in Paris, and he owns a restaurant in San Francisco.

It doesn’t take long before they give in to temptation and explore the contents of each other’s phones. An indiscretion on both their parts, but which leads to an unexpected revelation: their lives are linked by a secret that both thought would stay buried forever…

Such an amazing thriller and love story. You will be surprised many times during the book reading.

I hope this hangover won’t last long, because I don’t want to feel bad anymore haha. You surely understand me.

Is there any originality?


Hi everyone!

This post will be different from other older posts. In this post, I want to clarify some of the things that concern today's society and the environment. I have a habit of grabbing the phone as soon as I wake up, so I watch the posts on the Instagram. And every time it's getting boring. Why? Because I see the same things every day. The same poses for photographing, the same clothes, the same color of hair, the same bodies, the same duck faces and same destinations for "relaxing". Is It monotonous to see the same latest mobile phones in mirrors and sunbeds on Thai beaches, all the time? It IS. 

In the twenty-first century you're a loser if you do not look like a BRATZ doll or Kim Kardashian or as all the models who walk on catwalks.  You should have the Kylie Jenner lips and her sister's ass, shouldn't you? If you are a women, you should be arrogant and  snobby and you'll only accept a guy who drives latest Range Rover and drinks only Moet in the private room at the club. Of course, your nails will be longer than the sentences you speak. If your friend doesn't have an original Gucci handbag, she will not be your friend anymore. Because, she is cheap. Better question is, Why you are expensive? What's it that makes you expensive?  Your bag? Your plastic boobs? Your Versace coat? Well, I honestly hope you don't think like that.. You will spend time in the solarium and buy various face masks to make yourself attractive. *To make your shell looking attractive.



If you are in PMS, you still have to look perfect. You have a period, but no one should notice It. You think that your nature is humiliating. Even you have a strong urge for eating chocolate and crying, you will do your full-face makeup and rather eat a carrot because chocolate could make you fat. 

You see a girl reading in city transport and wondering: Is she normal? But wait, what an expensive girl is doing in city transport?  Your friends are all those rich guys who are taking a picture of their abs in the mirror. You (all together) are listening to latest songs which lyrics is a bit trashy and videos are pornography.

So, the question is: Is there any originality?

Is there a girl who is different than others? Is there a girl who maybe loves cooking, reading, and listening to Beethoven? Just someone who stands out from the crowd. Is there a personality who has Its own attitude?  Why is there so much similarity. It's more beautiful to be different, Isn't It? We are created to complement each other, not to imitate each other. John Mason said: "You were born an original. Don't die a copy."




Always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second rate version of somebody else.
Judy Garland

By this post, I did not intend to offend someone or make anyone feels uncomfortable.
