Fall colour makeup look

Fall makeup look
I must admit that getting back to my daily routine since my vacation in Rhodes island has been really challenging, because job just always find a way to pile up. So to say - for the past two weeks I've been trying to hop on a train that has already left the station. Mainly I am speaking about my 9 to 5 job and my freelance job which takes around 80% of my free time in the evening. So in the middle of all of this, last week our Canadian relatives came to visit us and we sure wanted to spend as much time with them as possible since we really wanted to create a good impression of Latvia and to get to know them as much as possible since it was the first time meeting them in real life.  Our foreign relatives kind of reopened my eyes about my home - Latvia. They were amazed by our culture, architecture, nature and our rich yet painful history. There are so many beautiful things in my country that I forget to appreciate as political, economical situation just take over the positive and beautiful matters of our country. So because of their visit I kind of got to experience Latvia from a foreigner view point, which for sure was refreshing!
Another thing that has captured my attention for the past week was creating my wanderlust video from Rhodes island. Just before the trip we decided to buy a GoPro camera and in the last few days I've been trying to create a visually enjoyable video from all gazillion clips we created. It for sure is a time consuming task since this is my first real time working with Adobe Premiere as I wanted the video to be as beautiful as possible - coordinate it with the song, colour grade (the colours from GoPro videos are usually quite dull) and understand how to create nice transitions from one clip to another. I hope that soon I will able to show you what I've been working on! 😊

But meanwhile, in today's article you'll be able to see a makeup look that for sure was inspired by fall and it's gorgeous colours. I will only add that on my eyes I used the Morphe X Jaclyn Hill eye shadow palette (still available at Beauty Bay, click the link!) which has become very near and dear to me. I will try to create a more detailed article regarding the palette soon! 😊

Atzīšos, ka atgriešanās ierastajā dzīves ritmā kopš atvaļinājuma Rodas salā noteikti ir bijis izaicinājums, jo  darbi kā vienmēr atrod veidu kā skriet pa priekšu un pēdējās divas nedēļas ir bijusi sajūta, ka centies ielekt vilcienā, kas jau sen kā atgājis no stacijas. Šis gan visvairāk attiecas uz pamatdarbu, gan arī uz freelance darbu, kam veltu aptuveni 80% no savu vakaru brīvā laika. Pa vidu tam visam, pagājušo nedēļ uzņēmām ciemiņus no Kanādas, kuriem noteikti vēlējāmies veltīt maksimāli visu brīvo laiku, lai radītu pēc iespējas labāku iespaidu par Latviju, kā arī, lai satuvinātos ar radiniekiem, kurus ieraudzījām pirmo reizi dzīvē. Par Kanādiešu vizīti piebildīšu vien to, ka viņi pavisam noteikti palīdzēja man ieraudzīt lietas citā, sen aizmirstā gaismā - viņi bija sajūsmā gan par mūsu kultūru, par mūsu skaudro vēsturi, arhitektūru un dabu. Ir tik daudzas lietas, kurām ikdienā vispār nepievēršam uzmanību un ļaujam dažādiem politiskiem un ekonomiskiem apstākļiem valstī tik ļoti nomākt mūsu valsts skaistumu, ka vairs nespējam novērtēt zemi, kurā dzīvojam.
Vēl viena lieta pie kuras strādāju pēdējās dienās ir Rodas salas video izveide. Pirms ceļojuma nopirkām GoPro kameru un šajās pēdējās dienās cenšos no visa safilmētā materiāla izveidot stāstu video formātā, kurā būtu redzams kā mums gāja, ko redzējām, ko ēdām un dzērām 😀 Tas noteikti ir ļoti laikietilpīgs process, jo vēl tikai pavisam pamazām sāku apgūt Premiere programmu, izveidot ar dziesmu saskaņotu kompozīciju, regulēt krāsas (jo ar GoPro izveidotie video ir salīdzinoši blāvi) un saprast kā no viena kadra pāriet otrā ar vizuāli baudāmu pāreju. Ceru, ka jau tuvākajā laikā varēšu arī jums atrādīt savu gara darbu 😊

Bet tikmēr, šodienas rakstā variet apskatīt grima tēlu, kuru viennozīmīgi ir iedvesmojis rudens un rudens dabas krāsas. Piebildīšu to, ka uz acīm esmu izmantojusi Morphe X Jaclyn Hill acu ēnu paleti (vēl joprojām pieejama Beauty Bay, skat. linku!) un, ka detalizētāku rakstu par pašu paleti cerams arī izveidošu tuvākajā laikā 😊

The first proper fall look

Call me Maddie
Finally the first real outfit fall outfit post of the year is up on the blog! 🎉 Fall undeniably has settled in and you can not only feel that in the cold crisp air, but also in the nature - especially in the golden red trees and bushes. So with that being said I declare the fall outfit series open! 😀 I am wearing one of my all time favorite coats - a camel colour coat from New Look (alternative here), a more than five years old blouse, but it's still very near and dear to my heart and I've had countless outfit posts with it. I am also wearing new additions to my wardrobe - faux suede button down skirt (I couldn't find the link, but it is available in the stores) and ankle boots (I scored them in summer sales!), both from H&M. And, of course, I couldn't not mention my newest and favorite accessory - the Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Ashfield watch. I am completely smitten by the elegant band and the rose gold details - I think it is sooo perfect for fall! 
If you'd like to buy you Daniel Wellinton watch, use the discount code "CALLME15" and you'll receive a 15% discount for your whole purchase. The code is valid till the end of the year.

Nu ko, pirmais īsti rudenīgais tērps ir publicēts blogā! 🎉 Rudens neapšaubāmi ir atnācis, un to var just ne tikai vēsajā gaisā, bet arī visapkārt dabā - it sevišķi zeltaini sārtajos kokos un krūmos. Likumsakarīgi arī blogā aizsāku rudenīgo outfitu sēriju! Mugurā man ir mans visiemīļotākais rudens kamieļkrāsas mētelis no New Look (alternatīva šeit), jau vairāk nekā 5 gadus veca blūze no Zara (bet vēl joprojām ļoti, ļoti mīļa - man ir bijuši neskaitāmi tērpa ieraksti ar to! Jauninājumi manā garderobē - mākslīgās zamšādas svārki no H&M (linku nevarēju atrast, bet ir jau pieejami veikalos), potīšu augstuma zābaki arī no H&M (nopirku vasaras atlaidēs) un mans šī brīža visstilīgākais aksesuārs - Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Ashfield pulkstenis. Daniel Wellington pulksteņi kā jau jūs to zināt ir mani absolūtie favorīti un šis, protams, nav izņēmums. Elegantā siksniņa un rozā zelta detaļas ir ideāli piemērotas šim rudenim.

I really wanted to continue the theme of the last Ebay article and decided to include various fall fashion items that you can find on Ebay! Even though my favorite fashion season is summer, I think that fall fashion has a certain charm around it. I believe that fall outfits are bit more interesting and versatile, because usually they include layers which means that there is a whole lot more room to experiment.
I really hope you'll like today's article and that you will find something useful for yourself or maybe get inspired for this season's fashion! Happy weekend guys! 😍

Paturpinot pagājušajā Ebay rakstā iesākto tēmu, šodien vēlējos blogā iekļaut dažādas Ebay'ā atrodamās lietas, kas ir saistītas ar modi - apģērbu un aksesuārus. Kaut arī mans mīļākais modes gadalaiks ir vasara, manuprāt, rudenim arī piemīt savs šarms. Rudens tērpi ir daudzpusīgāki, jo tie parasti ietver vairākas apģērba kārtas, kas nozīmē, ka ir plašākas iespējas eksperimentēt - aksesuārus ieskaitot.
Ceru, ka Tev patiks šīs dienas raksts un, ka atradīsi arī kaut ko sev noderīgu vai arī gūsi iedvesmu saviem rudens tērpiem! Priecīgu nedēļas nogali! 😍

A postcard from Rhodes

Tropical vacation outfit inspiration
Hey, Hey! I have finally gotten through the first crazy post vacation days and I can finally publish the first article from my vacation in Rhodes island, Greece! Though, I must also say that this is going to be the only article from my vacation since I broke my camera on the second day of my vacation :( A small part broke of the lens in the place where it mounts together with the camera, therefore, I was not able to use it throughout my trip at all. So since I wasn't able to shoot any more pictures for my blog, I decided spam my Instagram account with posts and Instastories.
Overall, I can say that I am very content with this vacation as I had the chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful Rhodes weather. And most importantly I spent amazing time together with my boyfriend. This vacation was exactly what I needed to escape the stressful daily routine and the grey and gloomy weather we had in Latvia (though it has improved lately).
I really hope you'll like this article and hopefully I will be able to get back on my blogging tracks soon enough. Though, this might be a little bit challenging since I was planning on having content for the next week or two, so right now I have to figure out how to plan and create new content.

Hei, hei! Beidzot esmu tikusi cauri pirmajām trakajām pēcatvaļinājuma dienām un varu publicēt pirmo outfit ierakstu no fantastiskās Rodas salas! Ar nožēlu jāsaka gan, ka šis ir arī vienīgais ieraksts, kas man būs no šīs salas, jo man otrajā atvaļinājuma dienā saplīsa fotoaparāts :( No vietas, kur objektīvs savienojas ar kameru nolūza divi mazi gabaliņi un rezultātā es nevarēju kameru vairāk izmantot. Šī iemesla dēļ es piespamoju Instagram ar daudzām bildēm un 'storijiem', jo zināju, ka man nebūs izdevības jums neko vairāk parādīt blogā. 
Kopumā par atvaļinājumu varu teikt to, ka es vienkārši fantastiski atpūtos un lieliski pavadīju laiku kopā ar savu draugu. Šis atvaļinājums bija tieši tas, kas nepieciešams, lai uz kaut neilgu laiku aizbēgtu no ikdienas stresiem, darbiem un, protams, arī drēgnā rudens (kaut arī pēdējās dienās laiks ir daudz reiz uzlabojies). 
Ceru, ka Tev patiks šis bloga ieraksts un cerams man izdosies nostāties atpakaļ blogošanas sliedēs un drīzumā publicēt kādu jaunu ierakstu, nesaistītus ar atvaļinājumu. Piebildīšu, ka tas varētu būt izaicinoši, jo biju rēķinājusies ar to, ka man būs pietiekoši daudz satura, lai blogā par jauna saturu izveidi neraizētos kādu nedēļu, divas. Bet tagad man ir fiksi jāieplāno jaunu ierakstu veidošana.

Fall is my third favorite season (or of you look from the other second least favorite season 😊), so in order to make it more bearable I like having themed items not only in my wardrobe, but also in my home. They kind of motivate me to like fall more and come to terms with the fact that summer in Latvia usually lasts for only couple of days. For example, autumnal scent candle can relax me almost instantly and even make me enjoy rainy weather (with one condition - I am staying inside and I am not planning on leaving the house any time soon 😊).
Do you like fall? What motivates you to get through the seasons which are not quite your favorites?

Rudens ir mans trešais mīļākais gadalaiks (vai arī kā uz to skatās - otrais nemīļākais gadalaiks 😊), bet, lai to padarītu sev tīkamāku man patīk ne tikai savā garderobē, bet arī savās mājās iekļaut tematiskas un gadalaikam atbilstošas lietas. Tās mani vairāk motivē iemīļot esošos laika apstākļus un samierināties ar to, ka vasara Latvijā ilgst vien pāris dienas. Piemēram, rudenīgas smaržas svece spēj mani fantastiski relaksēt un pat likt priecāties par, piemēram, lietainainajiem laika apstākļiem (pie nosacījuma, ka atrodos mājās un nav plānots tās pamest tuvākajā laikā 😊).

Vai Tev patīk rudens? Kas Tevi motivē tomēr izbaudīt arī 'nemīļos' gada laikus?
