Friday Ebay bargains #38

Hi!


It is Friday! Yaaaaiy! Fridays are definitely my favorite days of the week, not only because weekend is up next, but also because on Fridays I am posting my weekly Ebay bargains! I always have so much fun browsing Ebay and adding items on my wish list and then showing them to you! I hope you enjoy my Ebay post series as much as I do! :)
Somehow this week I managed to include exactly the same item I included last week! Do you know which is it? :) When I was creating this list it totally slipped my mind, but I guess it just shows how versatile the item is! If you guessed this white hollow flouncing blouse, then you were right! I think that the blouse would be so perfect for summer- I really like the detailing on the top & the light color!
Another favorite of mine, has to be that beautiful floral print lapel blazer! I think for most of you it is not a secret that my favorite print in the world is floral! ( though, I do love aztec as well!) So, therefore, I think that this blazer is a must have for me, because of the obvious florals & the beautiful color combination! Are you as crazy about floral print as I am?

I also wanted to say a big thank you for your support and kind words on my Lilacs post where I talked about the fact that my dearly beloved dachshund Josephine passed away last Saturday. I am still very much heart broken and I don't know how to address and cope with this situation as everything in my house reminds me of her. Every time I came home from work or school she was always welcoming me few steps away from the door- I used to greet her and stroke her ears and talk to her about my day- so when I come home right now, my mind is still unconsciously waiting to be greeted by her barks and the joy, excitement she always had ( you know how dogs get very excited and just run around you all the time?). Not seeing her after I arrive at home just makes my heart so heavy. But I hope that the saying- "Time heels all wounds" is true and the loss will not hurt so much as it does right now.

TOP 10 Youtube beauty & fashion vloggers (my favorites)

top_10_youtube_vloggers
Hi!

As I have probably told you several times before, recently I have become a little bit obsessed with Youtube beauty/fashion gurus. I have always occasionally watched some beauty videos on Youtube, but I think I got a bit addicted at the start of May- I was sick for almost 2 weeks, out of TV shows  & movies to watch, therefore, I browsed Youtube and watched some makeup, hairstyle tutorials & videos that are related to fashion!

summer-outfit-inspiration
Hi!

Today I would like to show you an outfit that I wore a little less than a week ago when I spent time with my boyfriend ( he is also the photographer behind these pictures! :) ) I wore my new denim jacket that was kindly sent to me by Arafeel. I haven't had a denim jacket since the last time they were popular ( I was approximately 10!), but I think denim is on a winning streak again, therefore, I was really happy to receive this jacket! I paired it up with my white summer dress and a straw summer hat, both from H&M. I think that this outfit is a really great and actually very comfortable summer outfit, though, I am always scared to wear white clothes as it is so easy to get them dirty.

Friday Ebay bargains #37

Hi!

These past few days have been amazing in Latvia weather wise. I didn't even know that I was craving summer that much, till it arrived! I love when there are at least +25C outside, it makes me happy. What doesn't make me happy is my semester paper, which is the main reason I cannot go out and enjoy the marvelous weather! I wish I could be done with it already!
Anyways, while creating this weeks Ebay bargains list I was a bit inspired by the hot weather outside and, therefore, chose to include some bright color items as well. First of all, I would like to talk about the 4th product- the hair coloring chalk. The first time I ever heard about this product was when I read a really beautiful review / how to tutorial post on Kerti's blog. I instantly fell in love with the look she achieved by using hair chalk/crayon to color her hair in the beautiful light lilac color! I am definitely very tempted to order these hair crayons myself! :)
And the other item I am totally lusting over, are those awesome aztec print shorts. You maybe, might remember my love for aztec print last summer ( my outfits here, here & here), but I guess it just never went away & I am still in love with this print more than ever! :)

What I wear to the university

university-outfit-idea-blonde-latvian-girl
Hi!

Today I just want to show you a typical outfit from my daily life, more specifically what I wear when I attend the classes in the University. My look is very simple- a pair of  black skinny jeans, grey basic top, leather jacket, comfortable sneakers and a big bag. For university  I usually tend to wear very monochromatic colors.

New in (summer outfit)

Hi!

This day was the most beautiful day in the year so far- the weather was amazing- over +25C,  the sun was shining for almost the whole day! And I finally had the opporunity to meet my boyfriend and spend some quality time together. Managing the fact that we are both working right now and not living together (& he lives in a different city, which is only 20km away, but still) has really taken a toll on both of us, but I definitely have a positive outlook that we can work things out! :)
Anyways, today I just quickly wanted to show you the latest items that I have got over the past week- a denim jacket, which was kindly sent to me by Arafeel, a white dress & a summer hat from H&M. I think when all of these pieces are combined together, you can achieve a really fun and flirty summer look!
I have been wanting to get a denim jacket for the longest time now, so when Ara from Arafeel kindly sent me this lovely jacket, I was ecstatic! I really like the fact that it is a bit cropped and distressed,  because that way looks a lot more fun! I have already worn it several times & I love it! 
As today me and my boyfriend were in a great mood, we decided to shoot some outfit pictures while we were enjoying this beautiful day ( I was wearing everything that you can see in the picture), so you can definitely wait for an outfit post with these items later in the week! :)

Friday Ebay bargains #36

Hi!

It's Friday, which means that the next 2 following days are holidays! :) Though, for me the holidays will be more like study days as I am extremely behind on my semester paper, I still have 20 more pages to write! :(
The weather is predicted to be really great, it is said that on Sunday it will maybe be +30C! I mean how awesome is that? I hope I will be able to take a little break from my intense study session an just enjoy the lovely weather outside! :) How is the weather in your country?
Anyways, you know that on Friday I show you Ebay bargains that I have found over the week. For me this week's show stopper piece is definitely the neon yellow/green dress! I think it would be such an amazing dress for the summer as the color is so vibrant! I think that this dress would go very well together with gold and black accessories! And I am definitely tempted to get those awesome wayfarer sunnies!
Sorry for the short post, but I am extremely tired today & all I can think of is how awesome and comfy is my bed! :D

Batiste Dry Shampoo review

Batiste-dry-shampoo-cheeky-and-fruity-cherry
Hi guys!

Today I am really excited to show you the latest beauty product that I have bought. Which you have already probably guessed by the title and the picture- Batiste dry shampoo with the scent of cherries.
I believe in America you can by Batiste shampoos in every Walmart, but as I am clearly not living in USA, but in Latvia, I had to figure out a different way to try out this product.

Hi!

How was your weekend? Mine was tiring as hell! I was working on Saturday ( it was my first day back at the H&M after 10 days of being sick), I was feeling really beaten up when I came home so I decided to rest and spent the whole evening watching YouTube beauty and fashion guru videos ( I am out of TV shows or films to watch, any good suggestions, please? )

Friday Ebay bargains #35 (Sunglasses)


This week on Call me Maddie's Friday Ebay bargains- I have found many pairs of sunglasses- round, vintage, steampunk, leopard print, stick a needle in my eye, cross my heart hope to die, round oversized sunglasses with flowers. Cheap an qualitative sunglasses on Ebay. Fashion sunglasses found on Ebay. Saulesbrilles no Ebay.

1// 2// 3// 4// 5// 6// 7// 8// 9// 10//
( some of the sunglasses are sold out, I tried to find as similar ones as possible!)

Hi!

As  summer is approaching & nothing screams summer than a pair of sunglasses  and even right now in a lot of days it is impossible to leave the house without a pair of sunnies, I decided to gather a little part of my favorite sunglasses (there were plenty, trust me) that can be found on Ebay. 
Sunglasses are definitely my favorite summer accessory, because not only they protect my eyes from sun and wind (and also have proven to beextremely useful while riding a bike- there have been countless times when I have not worn my sunglasses during this activity and as a result, little bugs, little grains of sand & other things somehow run into my eyes- I hate that so, so much, because not always those tiny things get out themselves & I have to poke around in my eye till it gets red :/ ).
Also sunglasses are a really great style element and I wear them not only in summer, but all around the year, because I really like how they complement the outfit! (In about 50% of my outfit posts I am wearing sunglasses: my personal favorite looks: here, here & here) And as there are so many types and models of sunglasses there are countless possibilities of many different outfits just with a help of this small accessory.
Anyways I hope you liked this post & maybe even found it useful! Just a little while ago I ordered 2 pairs of sunglasses so you can wait for a review very soon! :)

Turquoise tulip skirt

Newest outfit on Call me Maddie: I am wearing turquoise tulip skirt from H&M, aztec print top from Sheinside, nude color heels from Lala, geneva silicone watch from Ebay.
Hi!

These pictures were taken a bit more than a week ago (before I got sick), when the weather was super nice- the sun was shining and it was at least +20C. But right now it is pouring rain and as I have been said it is really gloomy and cold outside. Which at this moment works for me as I am stuck in the house anyways ( I am on sick leave till Friday) and it would be hard to bear awesome weather knowing that I couldn't actually enjoy it . 

New in- H&M summer 2014 shoes

H&M Spring/Summer 2014 collection shoes: neon yellow and palm print lace up Espadrille
Hi!

There are people who would without thinking buy shoes over clothes, handbags or any other fashion related item, but I guess, I am not quite that kind of person. For me shoes used to not be very important- I saw them more as a necessity, because, well, clearly, I couldn't walk around barefoot. But somehow with me getting older and, I don't know, wiser (?) that is slightly starting to change as I have started to appreciate the fact that shoes can be a really great style element and can really be the key factor of pushing the outfit to the next level!

Blue lace

Newest outfit post on Call me Maddie: indoor photo shoot of a blogger. I am wearing a blue lace dess from H&M, black heels with bow from Deichmann. How to take pictures with a remote control and tripod. Blonde Latvia girl. Blonde beautiful green eyed Latvian girl. Modes blogs. Modes blogere
Hi!

Since I was sick for the past 4 or 5 days, I had no chances of doing anything very productive. And you know what? It really sucks as I had so many things that I wanted and planned to do in these long holidays ( attend 2 parties, start writing my semester paper, finish other university projects, meet up with some old friends and, of course, blog more!), yet I was stuck in my house- mostly in my bed, but I finally caught up to  all the episodes of The Voice Season 6, so, yeah, I got that going on for me, which is nice! ( I just couldn't resist using a 9gag meme) :)

Friday Ebay bargains #34 (Get organized)

This week on Call me Maddie blog Ebay bargains- how to organize your makeup. Cheap Acrylic makeup organizer, boxes, drawers, sets. Nail polish organizer. Tips on how to store and organize makeup and makeup tools.
1// 2// 3// 4// 5// 6//
Hi!

I think that you are more or less used to my "Ebay bargains" being only about clothes and accessories, but since on Ebay you can find plenty other useful and beautiful things, on this Friday I chose to change up a bit my weekly Ebay bargain posts and show you something different. 

If you are a messy person like I am, these storage boxes/organizers could be really useful in order to make our lives a bit easier! Currently I am using Nr. 6 makeup organizer and, honestly, a lot of times it has saved me, because there are plenty of mornings when I barely have time to put on makeup, therefore, when everything is organized and my daily makeup tools are in one place- it can really make a difference time wise, as I don't have to dig through my messy/unorganized makeup drawer!
Also, these makeup organizers can be a really beautiful decor element. I can very much imagine having a beautiful dressing table (with a round mirror & all) and to have all my daily makeup and makeup tools stored into these awesome acrylic organizers. Wouldn't that be awesome? :)

Did you like this different approach to weekly Ebay bargains? Or should I stick to clothes/accessories only?
