Feeling a bit blue

Hi!

Today I am wearing one of my all time favorite blouses, I bought it a little while ago (in January if I remember right) at H&M, because of it's beautiful rich blue color! I decided to pair it with another favorite of mine- Aztec print mini skirt that I bought on sales last summer at Stradivarius!

Hi!

A bit more than 2 weeks ago, me and my niece went to the nearest shopping centre with a purpose to buy me a sportsuit as my old one was really worn out. I knew for sure that I will make a visit to H&M as I had seen many great items for very friendly prices in their online store. As in the H&M store I work there isn't a sportswear section, I decided to take my niece along with me (haha, I did promise that she could have a little shopping spree as well) and go to shopping centre that is not that far away from my home. When I got to the store I knew that I wanted to buy really neutral color sportswear items (like black or grey), because I don't want to draw too much attention on myself as I am a beginner in running, haha, and I right now I am not so good at it or in other words- I suck! :D Though at the end I did buy a sports bra in a beautiful purple color ( in the picture it seems more blue-ish, but it in life it is more like purple).
Last week I ran for for the first time since high school (almost 3 years) and I must admit that, even though, it was a bit like hell (I went out of breath very soon and my legs felt so heavy) the feeling afterwards was exhilarating! Though, the feeling of exhilaration went away very soon as my legs hurt for days- I couldn't bend without feeling like an 80 year lady! But besides everything, I am very determined to fit running into my regime ( at least 3 times a week).

Even though, right now I am not looking for a bold color sportsuit, I am definitely considering to buy something colorful for the summer. I browsed H&M online store and was amazed of how amazing the selection of sportswear for the summer is! I never thought that you could look that fashionable in sportswear! I think I will definitely buy those light blue shorts as running in pants in summer would be a really terrible idea unless you want to have a heat stroke. The design and color of these pieces are awesome, but even more importantly they are affordable. I am stressing that because as I am a student and, even though, I am working a part time job, I am still on a tight budget + as I am a beginner in running, I am not sure I would like to invest in really expensive sportswear!

Right now I am running in my old highschool Adidas sneakers, but I am definitely thinking of upgrading to new running sneakers as my Adidas ones are really worn out. And I have read and been told that it is very important to have good running shoes in order not to damage  legs or spine.
I have looked through several online stores, but I must admit Nike's sneakers are by far my favorites. I decided to show you some of my favorites that I found via Asos. My favorite model is definitely the Nike Air Max (you can see 4 of them on the right), ain't those purple ones with the ombre effect perfect? 
I have been to several sportswear shops in Riga, but they don't offer as wide range of sportswear shoes  as I can find online + a lot of sneakers in the shops are really overpriced. Therefore, I was thinking of maybe ordering a pair online, but I am a bit scared to do so as I am not quite sure about the size. I think that the most important thing about sport trainers is the fit.
Have you ordered sportswear shoes online? You could really help me out with your experience!

Hi!

The pictures of this outfit were taken a little less than a week ago, when there were still no leaves on the trees, but for the past few days I have a feeling that I have been living in a spring paradise- everything around me is so, so pretty! :)

Hi!

As the weather outside has been super sunny for the past few days, I decided to show you some "sunny" items as my Ebay bargains as well! My favorite items of the week are definitely the light yellow blouse and the salad green pants! I think that both items would look wonderful in a weather like this, especially accompanied with these vintage like sunglasses to protect the eyes from the bright sunshines! + the price is relatively cheap as well- a bit over $10.

As for me, today I have to work (8 hour shift), but I am ok with that, because I finally have the whole weekend off from work! Ain't that awesome? I am still not sure what I'll do, but I know that at least one of those two days I will sleep in & spend the first half of the day in bed- watching TV shows! I am so behind on many of them- Hart of Dixie, Greys Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries etc. And for sure, I know I will have a House of Cards series marathon as I just started wathing the 2nd season! I am really not into politics or anything related to that, but this show just somehow lures me in!

Hi!

The weather has been so, so great lately- the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the flowers are starting to blossom- spring has definitely sprung! And I just couldn't be more happy about that...

Hi!
As I said on my previous post, when I got back from my vacation in Canary islands, I had quite a few packages waiting for me at the post office from the lovely sponsors of Call me Maddie. Going to to the post office and then coming home with 5 parcels in my hands felt like the morning of Christmas- so much excitement and joy! :) I bet my fellow bloggers know what I am talking about! :)
Just to make it clear,  even though, everything that is in this post was sent to me by the sponsors of my blog, you should know that all opinions are 100% only mine.

Hi!

Sorry for my rather late timing post, usually I like publishing my posts earlier so I can watch the feedback I receive. But this day was a really long and actually a nice day as well- in the morning I went for a long walk with my 6 year old niece to the shopping center in which we had a really great shopping spree and girl time! I finally bought sport suit (sportswear) as I really want to start running again! I think I will show some pictures of what I got somewhat later, if, of course, you are interested in a bit more fitness kind of post! :) Then when I got back from the shopping center I went for a walk with my boyfriend ( the weather is super nice today!), so yeah, you can basically say that my legs are definitely killing me at this point! :D I also persuaded my boyfriend into taking some outfit pictures for me, I was very inspired by the weather & wore a lot of florals and bright colors ( the outfit post you'll see next week!). And to top it off, today I also managed to have a study session- I wrote an assignment I was dreading a lot *feel so proud of myself* :)

Anyways, as Easter is this weekend, I really wanted to incorporate the Easter feeling in my this week's Ebay bargains too! I went with the color inspiration, because pastels are definitely something that is associated with Easter ( pastel colored eggs etc). The first item I found were those light pink pants, they remind me a bit the very trendy Zara pants ( for example, like these & these)! I bet they are very light and comfortable! And I also really like this blouse, as the color is so eye catching and the print is so, so cute! :)

Canary islands- my outfits #5

IMG_5591a
Hi!

This is the last day of showing you my Canary islands vacation outfit pictures, in case you missed any of them here are the previous ones: 1, 2, 3, 4. It has been really a lot of fun showing you the outfits I wore on my vacation, but as a long time has passed since I actually was in Tenerife ( almost 3 weeks), I am very eager to show you what is happening right now in my life! For example, when I got back home, I had 4 packages waiting for me at the post office from my lovely sponsors- haha, the best welcome home gift ever! :) But I will get more on that in the upcoming posts! :)

Canary islands- my outfits #4

My outfit in Tenerife, Canary islands, Spain- I am wearing lace see through blouse from Ebay, feather dream catcher earrings from H&M, brown rayban type sunglasses from Promod, light blue shorts from Bershka, white geneva silicone watch from Ebay, white sandals from Deichmann, white quilted bag from Arafeel, pink gemstone ring from Primark
Hi!

This outfit is one of my favorites from Canary islands as I am wearing some of my favorite clothes, like this lace blouse, feather earrings I bought a long time ago at H&M & those brown Sunnies from Promod. I remember I wore this outfit while we were taking a really long walk along the promenade/coast of Playa de Las Americas. I ate way too many ice creams on the way/ got my nose and forehead burnt really bad & my legs were killing me when I had to go all the way back to the hotel, but overall I really did have the time of my life! :) And I definitely wish I could do it all over again!

Hi!

I so loving this Friday! I finally got my 8+ hours sleep and woke up naturally, without the alarm clock or anything! The weather is super nice today as well- in the morning (well not so much morning since I woke very late) I persuaded my boyfriend to take some outfit pictures of me with some new goodies courtesy of my blog sponsors (more how to advertise on my blog here) & later I picked up my little niece from kindergarten and decided to buy some bread & feed ducks! :)

Anyways that is how my day has been so far! Today I am posting my regular  Ebay bargains! This orange print blouse is definitely my favorite bargain this week! It kind of reminds me of something I saw on Gossip Girl- Blair was so rocking the citrus fruit print in her outfit! It is actually very strange that I can still remember what she was wearing because Gossip Girl ended a little more than just a while ago! Though I do miss the show a lot- especially the Chuck and Blair drama & all the gorgeous outfits the girls (and, yes, the guys as well- I loved Chuck's suits) were wearing! Did you watch GG? :)

Canary islands diary pt. 3

IMG_5412

Hi!

Today I will publish the ladt part of my Canary island diary series, ( here is the first part & here is the second part, in case you missed them!), I still have two outfit posts lined up, so the Canary craze is still not over! :D I think only judging by the pictures you could tell that I had really a blast and every second since my vacation I have wanted to go back! It is great to flipp through all the pictures and remember the fun times, but I definitely believe I will have many more great vacations as traveling is one of those things in life that gives an immense amount of pleasure!

Canary islands- my outfits #3

neon sandals, moto biker leather jacket, light blue skinny jeans. H&M, Bershka
Hi!

Today I am showing the third outfit from my vacation in Canary islands! 
While the days in Tenerife were warm and I could easily sport tank tops and shorts, the evenings were quite chilly and when we decided to go for a walk, I usually wore my blue jeans and leather jacket! The neon green/yellow sandals were by far my most favorite item I took with me! I think that they are the perfect pop of color and a surprise element that can spice up any outfit!

Hi!

Today I have another Canary islands diary post lined up. It is crazy of how I miss my vacation and the sunny, beautiful island of Tenerife, even though I was there only 10 days ago!

Hi!

I love when weekend is approaching! This weekend I am working on Sunday, but I still have Saturday is a holiday for me & I have been waitning for it for such a long time (I haven't had a holiday since last Thursday!), I plan to finally sleep in as I am tired of getting woken up by the alarm clock, I still have unpack my suitcase which has been laying on the floor for over a week now & I want to catch up on all the tv shows I have missed (The Vampire diaries, Modern Family, How I met your mother, Suits etc).

Even though, the weather in Latvia is still relatively cold, spring is definitely on my mind! I can't wait to start wearing more light weight items in beautiful candy/pastel colors! This week the first item I found was this beautiful bird print blouse, but as I said it is still very chilly outside- I think it could go so well together with that pink fluffy sweater! I really like how these kind of sweaters feel on my skin (so pleasent and soft)! + it is a great layer in order to keep myself warm on these chilly days!

Canary islands- my outfits #2

Newest oufit post on Call me Maddie in Canary islands, Tenerife, botanic garden. I am wearing purple refletor sunglasses from H&M, white basic t shirt with a pocket from H&M, light blue jeans from Bershka, pink tartan shirt from Zara TRTF
Hi!

Today I have another outfit post prepared for you! While we were in Tenerife, Canary islands we decided to reant a car, because I just wasn't ok with spending all 10 days by the pool and doing nothing as there were so, so many beautiful places to visit outside my resort area.

Hi!

As I promised on my last post, today I am posting some of the oh-so-many pictures I took while I was in Canary islands! I had over 800 pictures on my camera! (Crazy, right?). Looking back at these pictures makes me miss the sun, the beach, the ocean, the neverendless feeling of relaxation so much! I cannot believe I was in Canary islands a bit less than a week ago, it actually feels very surreal as it was just only a dream, because as soon as I got back I had to dive into my everyday life (university + part time job). Every day since Friday has been very stressful and honestly I just cannot wait for a holiday, which I will only have on Saturday- I just cannot wait to sleep in & not be waken up by the alarm clock!
