Canary islands-my outfits #1

What I was wearing on a vacation while in Canary islands- a white crop top from H&M Loves Music collection, white shorts with blue floral print on them as well from H&M Loves Music, white Geneva watch from Ebay, blue Primark earrings

I don't think there is a better way to start off my Canary island post series than with an outfit post! As you might recall from this post , just before I left Latvia I made a short visit to H&M's showroom where I got the chance to preview H&M's upcoming H&M Loves Music collection (first part will be available in the start of April) & some amazing bikini's that will soom hit the stores.

Hey, hey, hey! Guess who is back from vacation? :)
My trip to Canary islands was beyond any words- amazing! I spent 10 amazing days in the beautiful island of Tenerife, I so wish I could have stayed there longer and soaked up the warm sun a bit more! The first days after a vacation are the hardest ones as I have to do so, so, so many things in so little time! Right now I am having a big reality check as the past 10 days I was living with no worry in my heart and my biggest concern was choosing the right meal or cocktail in a restaurant! 
Anyways, there will be a lot of Canary island posts in the next days, so I will let the pictures speak for themselves ( I have so many outfit posts to show you guys! Can't wait!).

But as today is Friday, I couldn't go on without showing you the latest bargains I have found today! The first item I found was this extremely sweet sweater, I think that the color combination couldn't get more perfect for this season (pastel blue + pastel pink= spring) & I wanted to pair it up with this black heart print skirt as I think that it tones the outfit down a bit, otherwise it might get a bit to cutesy (if that is even possible! :D ).
I would love to write a bit more, but I really have to go to rush to the post office ( I have 3 packages waiting for me! Exciting!) and later I have to go to work. I actually have to work the whole weekend which will be tiring as hell, because just yesterday I got back from my trip ( I woke up at 3:00 am, flew 4.5 hours to London, there I waited 6 hours for my flight to Riga, which was 2.5 hours and as a result I was awake approximately 20 hours! I am still very tired!) 

Anyways, happy Friday & enjoy the bargains! :)

20 random facts about me


This is another scheduled post I made a little while as probably now I am soaking the Canary island sun! :)
I had been thinking of making a bit more personal post for a while now and as I just recently saw a similar post at www.kristianavasarina.com, I thought I should actually go for it! :) I know that this blog could associate more with fashion, outfit posts, weekly Ebay bargains etc., but I wanted to make a post for you to get to know me a tiny bit better. I know a lot of you might be more interested in pictures and fashion related things, but only judging by my experience I like to know a bit more about the person whose blog I am reading. Haha, I think I could actually be the case of "curiosity killed the cat" as I am a bit nosy! :)

Pretty in pink


Oh, sweet pink. I think that pink is definitely one of my favorite colors since I was a little girl. And as much as I love bold and almost neon pink, I really like sweet and light pink as well- it makes me feel more feminine and soft!

Friday Ebay bargains #28

Cheap Friday- Ebay bargains #25.  Maddie's guide on Ebay clothing, shoes and accessories. This weeks Ebay bargains include items like bright orange coat, floral, tropical print blouse, rivet nude color heels, beige tote bag, rivet bracelet in gold, futuristic shape deisgner sunglasses
1// 2// 3// 4// 5// 6//

Spring is my second favorite season after summer, therefore, recenlty I really love making my weekly Ebay bargain collages as I love searching for items in fun prints and colors! 
The moment I saw this coat it was almost love from first sight! I know how everybody is hyped about the candy color coats (light blue and pink), but I really love the vivid orange color of this coat and I definitely think it is a great stand out piece!
Another item I fell in love with, was that tropical/floral print blouse ( I think you already know my love with floral prints!). I like that the blouse looks very easy breezy and light weight, so as I stated in the collage- it is perfect for s/s 14! :)

*I'm currently away in Canary islands- so this is a scheduled post!

When I went to ballet


I know I am more known for having at least 5 pictures in my outfit posts, but this time the weather just wasn't on my side so I ended up only taking approximately 5 pictures & these 2 are the best ones! The weather that day was very, very windy and cold as well, so when I made some test shots I knew that unfortunately I will not have my outfit pictures taken that day. But after uploading these test shots on my pc, I thought that maybe I could still publish them, even though the quality of the pictures isn't the best ( the background is way too light!), I just wanted to show you the outfit I wore when I went to the opera house to see ballet together with my high school friends! :) I always love seeing my high school buddies because I don't get to see them very often as we are very caught up and busy in our everyday lives, but  I really like reunions! :)

Packing for Canary islands

ready for beach outfit- hot pink towel, reflector sunglasses from H&M, palm print bikini and shorts

As I have said it many times before ( I think I am starting to bore you with this!), tomorrow I am traveling to Canary islands! I am extremely excited about that, because a vacation is truly what I needed right now! I don't think that I am the only one who thinks that packing can be a true nightmare, that is way I started packing on Wednesday and slowly added thoughtful content to my suitcase!

Friday Ebay bargains #27

Cheap Friday- Ebay bargains #25.  Maddie's guide on Ebay clothing, shoes and accessories. This weeks Ebay bargains include items like cartoon bunny rabbit shirt in pink, a hot pink tote bag, a mathematics watch in bright blue, statement necklace made of gemstones, pastel blue crochet pattern shorts, red rose heels
1// 2// 3// 4// 5// 6//

As you might see in this post, I am really influenced by my upcoming trip to Canary islands. All I can think of are bright and vivid colors as they are the ones I have already packed in my suitcase! I think that a lot of these items would be perfect in spring and even more in summer.
I think that these shorts definitely belong in spring as the color is very soft and pastel like + it has floral print on them and a really lovely crochet line, which adds even more to the femininity! I would really like to own a pair like that! :)
Other items that really caught my eye were the gemstone statement necklace (as for a long time already I have a huge crush on statement necklaces) & that amazing electra blue watch! I really like the unique design of the dial- how cool it is to solve mathematical equations in order to know what time it is! Definitely keeps the memory sharp! :)

Today I just simply wanted to show you some random pictures of my life lately- nothing very serious :)

Sunny day in Riga

Newest outfit post on Call me Maddie. I am wearing a layered tulip skirt from Zara, fluffy fuzzy jacket from H&M, lace see through blouse from Ebay, black classic bag from H&M, genea silicone watch from Ebay

As I talked about my photo shoot locations in my last outfit post, these outfit pictures were taken in a really small and narrow street in Riga! (My Latvian readers might know it as Gleznotāju iela). I think that small narrow streets of the old part of the city definitely have their charm. And I really love how pavement looks (instead of old boring asphalt) as it gives more texture! Originally I wanted to have my outfit pictures taken in front of Opera house, but it was way too crowded and very windy! 

Winter outfit details


As the weather is getting warmer and warmer every single day, I am definitely ready to say goodbye to winter and winter's fashion! So, therefore, I thought that I could do a little resume post about my winter outfits, but in a bit different way, by just showing the details of them! The reason I did that was because I believe that attention to the details in an outfit is a factor that can definitely put the outfit on a whole another level!

Friday Ebay bargains #26

Cheap Friday- Ebay bargains #25.  Maddie's guide on Ebay clothing, shoes and accessories. This weeks Ebay bargains include items like black wool floppy hat, black clutch bag with geometric elements, rabbit portrait canvas top blouse, tartan green pants well fitted, spike detail flats in black, gemstone statement necklace
1// 2// 3// 4// 5// 6//


You know what to expect on Fridays, right? :) Of course- my Ebay bargains! Making Ebay bargains has become a really natural part of my to-do-list in the week and I really like making these posts as find a lot of things that I want to buy myself, for example, like  these green tartan print pants! I think that tartan will still continue it's winning streak in next seasons, because I mean what is there not to love about it? (Or am I the only one who thinks that way?).
Other item that I really like is that envelope clutch, I actually don't have any envelope clutches, therefore, I think  this particular clutch could be a really great addition to my bag collection ( and as I am typing this, I realized I have way too many bags already!)! :D Yeah, well I probably don't need this clutch, but it doesn't change the fact that I still want it a lot!

The next two weeks are going to be really busy for me, as I have had said it a lot of times in my previous posts- after a bit more than 2 weeks I am going to Canary islands, but as I am a full time student, there are a lot of projects and tasks to be done before my vacation, so basically I just cannot wait to be done with that!

New in


I hope you are having a really nice and relaxing Sunday! :) I wish mine was like that, but I had to work at the weekend and I must say- H&M on Saturday and Sunday was a complete madhouse! I am very, very tired right now and I was even more tired yesterday after the evening shift! It feels like on weekends I work double regular weekday shifts as I have to do so much in so little time and clients take so much energy and patience from me! The queues  at the tills and the fitting rooms were super long and even after only working two hours at the tills it felt like my head was burning! 
Anyways, today I just quickly wanted to share with you some items I have got over the week!
