New in- a little from everything

Hi there fashionistas!

I have not done my "latest buys" for a long time, it could probably be because I am finally not spending that much money! Hehe, the moment I say this I can already imagine that, I will  not be able to control myself and have a shopping spree just because I have been saving money lately, haha! And you know, working at H&M really doesn't help! :D
Anyways here are some things that I have bought over the past weeks!

Purple home booties from H&M, very warm and fuzzy home slippers, review on H&M
Purple home booties from H&M, very warm and fuzzy home slippers, review on H&M
The moment I saw these adorable home booties, I knew I needed to have them in my life! They are super comfortable and really, really warm- I can hardly take them of when I have to go out of my house! These were a real necesity as it is very chilly in my flat & the floors are pretty cold as well!
If I remember right,I bought them for 14.95 EUR at H&M
blue lace dress from H&M
blue lace dress from H&M, beautiful back detailing of a dress
Beautiful lace dress from H&M for 29.95 EUR
I especially love how the back looks! Can't wait to show you some outfit photos where I am wearing it!
red beanie with letter A from H&M
Beanie type hat from H&M for 4.95 EUR
I am not a big hat lover, because they truly look ridiculous on me, but this one caught my eye immediately & I think it would go well with my green, parka type winter coat!
Etude House CC cream review, Glow cream CC
Etude House CC cream review, Glow cream CC
Well, I cannot actually say that this is my latest buy, as I got it for free from winning in Giveaway that was held on http://www.sakuranko.com/! I do not very often win things, so this was a great surprise for me & there is nothing that I love more- getting stuff for free! :D!
The item I got is CC (Color control) cream, here is the link to it!
I have not had the chance to use it a lot, but I like the fact that it is 8 in 1 (anti-aging, stress relief, hydration, whitening, sun protection, tone-up, smooth texture, luminosity), so I think this will easily become a part of my daily beauty routine!
Umberto Giannini dry shampoo review
Here is a beauty product I have been wanting to buy for a long time now- a dry shampoo! This one I bought at my local drugstore for approximetely 8 EUR.
This is the first experience for me with dry shampoos. I really wanted one, because I have heard good things about them and, especially because my hair gets dirty and greasy really fast and therefore I have to wash them at least every second day, which is really bad for hair (+ to make matters worse I always blow dry my hair as I never have time to wait for them to dry themselves, so it is about 3- 4 times a week when I use blow dryer- and as we all know- heat is not  best friends with hair )! And even though my hair is long, they are not very thick and get damaged really easily, so this is why I decided to give dry shampoo a chance!
What is your experience with dry shampoos? & Any tips to make my hair healthier? :)


And to end this post on a pretty note, I just want to show you pictures of the beautiful flowers my boyfriend gave to me, just like that, for no reason! :) Isn't he the sweetest? :)
boyfriend gifted me flowers for no reason, beautiful orange tulips

Black and white outfit

 faux fur white jacket, high waisted belt skirt, chelsea akle boots, black clutch from H&M
Hi!


I have an exciting week ahead of me! :) As most of you might know from my last outfit post, from Wednesday till Friday I will be going on a cruise to Stockholm! Yaiy for that! As the last time I was in Stockholm was like 4 years ago! I promise I will take a lot of pictures, since I haven't posted any trip or photography related photos for a long while now! And I cannot wait till capture the beautiful places and architecture of Stockholm!
And the other thing I am very excited about, is that on Friday I will go to H&M's showroom to see Isabel Marant for H&M collection up close! I have seen several photos of the collection online, but I cannot wait to lay my eyes on it before anybody else can actually buy it as the collection will be available on 14th November! So stay tuned for photos and my review/ experience post after this Friday! :)

Cheap Friday- Ebay bargains #12

Hi!


Today I was reading Games of Thrones series and there is just one slogan that keeps on repeating- Winter is coming! And it couldn't be even more precise to what is happening in the nature right now, well, at least the weather in Latvia has been starting to get colder and colder, sometimes in the mornings when I have to go to work at 6:30 am it's already under 0°C!
So therefore I was thinking of implementing a bit warmer items to my Ebay bargain wishlists! For, example, like this leather sleeved coat- I really, really like it, and I have been searching for a one like this for a really long time, I especially like the fact that it is white & black, therefore it is easier to style it with different outfits!
The moment I very first saw this black bag, I was in love! I love how it is not just simply a black bag, but has that cool crocodile skin alike paneling! Well, I it is a faux one! I could never buy real crocodile skin pattern bag!). I like how subtle the print is and how nicely the bag is paneled!

Hi!

*It's just another manic Monday* that's what buzzes in my head since the morning when I first heard the song on the radio! Well, anyways for me just like for a lot of people, Mondays are definitely not my favorite days at all! And as last week I only had 1 holiday in which I could wake without the alarm clock ringing, I am pretty much unhappy and a bit tired already! Sadly this week I will only have 1 day as a holiday as well ( from Monday-Wednesday- university; and on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday- work), so I guess I don't have much to look forward! Except the fact that next week I will go on a little 3 day cruise from Riga to Stockholm! I have been in Stockholm once and it was a lot of fun as I went with my high school class! :) Boy, remembering that trip makes me miss my old classmates a bit ( it has been almost 3 years since I have seen most them), and I am really bad at cathing up!

So basically that is what's going on in my life lately, but today I wanted to show you another outfit featuring jewellery from Rings & tings, like that little black heart necklace and the small anchor ring, which has easily become my favorite as it is very cute and quirky! :)

Hi!


I am so happy weekend is already here! Even though I had to work today and I still have work tomorrow, weekends are my lucky days, especially because I have Sunday off! :)

For this weeks bargains I decided to go with, in my mind, one of the most popular colors this season- burgundy/wine red! I really, really love this color ( hehe, I think as much as I love red wine, but that is a different story, haha) and lately I have been wearing it as much as possible ( like here and here)!
If you have been reading my blog for even a little while you must have noticed my obsession with tribal/aztec prints, there is just something that draws my eye to it wherever I see it! So, therefore, this sweater is a must for me and it surely looks very warm and cozy which is an additional + to it!
The other thing I have been wanting to buy for a while are disco pants! I have seen so many bloggers rocking them and I am pretty jealous of the looks that can be created with this pair, so I am definitely considering buying them because they look pretty comfortable (as they are stretchy) and very figure flattering!

Behind the scenes VII

floral blouse, turquoise ring, geometric triangle necklace, tulip skirt
Hi!

If you are one of my blog's regular and consistent reader you might have noticed that from time to time I like to post my so called behind-the-scenes photos, which basically are just some random outtakes from my outfit photo shoots! Maybe through my blog or posts it is not so visible, but in real life I am a huge goofball, for example, I love making weird sounds ( like, for example, a funny story in short, once I was in a bus going home and suddenly the driver hit the brakes really hard! I was hardly able to stand on my feet, so when I was almost falling and trying to grab the closest pole to hold on, I accidentally made a "meow" sound just because the whole situation was so unexpected and instead of just remaining silent or on best case scenario saying "oh" or something similar, my brain decided that this the time to meow!   haha, I am still mortified of what people on the bus thought of me- like I am just a random girl who meows in buses! :D ), I hardly can stay serious when my outfit photos are being taken, especially when my best friend is taking them- I start dancing & jumping around like a crazy person or I am having a really big laughter, because she usually likes  saying the most random and funny things to throw me of my game, therefore it is impossible for me to stand in one place and be calm! :)
The thing I also love doing a lot- is fixing my hair. I think I have an obsession as I am touching them every second just to make sure everything is in the right place!

Are you a goofball like me? What are your weird photo shoot habits?

I just had to include my little nice Elisa, I think she will be going in my foot steps, because once she went along with me and my mom, when my mom was sweet enough to take my outfit photos. And Elisa was pretty persistent on asking me to give her my bag and my bracelet so that she could pose just like me &  she stated that once she would have a blog just like mine when she will be older! I mean, how cute is that? That is like the ultimate compliment! :)

 Hi there!

Today I have another outfit post prepared for you! I was so happy when I found this location where I had my photos taken, it just felt like a fall wonderland with all the yellow leaves around! These photos were taken on a really gloomy and a bit foggy day, but lately the weather has been spoiling us, even though it's very cool outside- this morning the temperature was only +2C, the sun has been shining every day for a while now, I wish I didn't had work or university and I could go to some place out of the city and just enjoy the marvelous beauty of fall's nature!
+ I'd like to thank Rings and tings for sending me this lovely glasses necklace, how cute is it? :) Rings and tings is a really pretty shop with so many cute things in it, I especially love the jewelry! You should check it out!

Over the moon

Edgy fall outfit that consists of moon eclipse graphic top/vest, burgundy color pants, lita like heels (from Ebay), fringe tassel bag and sheepskin feather necklace.
Hi lovelies!

It has been a little while since my outfit post and I feel really bad about it, but as you might know I was very sick  ( bacterial infection in airways); only on Friday I was able to go back to work! So it was pretty much a 10 day bed regime for me! But anyways since I am healthy now, the first thing on my list was to take proper outfit photos! So here you go! :) I was actually very excited for this outfit as it is a bit more edgy than my usual outfits! I love wearing feminine and more preppy clothes a lot, but I also like getting out of my comfort zone and just try something new!
I would also want to use this opportunity to say big thanks to Front Row Shop for sending me awesome items like this necklace and this top. Their shop offers really unique and outstanding pieces which I personally have not seen on other shops! I love the edgy style clothing and accessories they have & when I saw that moon eclipse top I was immediately in love, because I  had seen it a lot of times in different places (blogs, tumblr etc) and I knew that it would be something I would love to wear, but I had no idea where to look for it! So when I saw it at Front Row Shop I was literally "over the moon", hihi! :)
