Country life pt.2

photography-blog
Hi!

Today I wanted to show you some more pictures from my visit to my grandparent's countryside ( You can read the part 1 here). I love taking pictures of nature, therefore, you can definitely say that photography is one of my favorite hobbies! It all started with silly photo shoots that me and my best friend had when we were teens ( for example, pack a big bag of clothes & possible outfits and then go to a new location- explore and take photos of each other along the way). I really miss those times as everything we did together on those little trips was amazing and very, very hilarious! :) As my blog is more fashion oriented I tend to be more in front of camera that behind it, therefore, photography comes second! But when I do have the chance to be behind the camera I try to enjoy it as much as possible and I always try to show the outcome on my blog! :)

Friday Ebay bargains #49 - Back to School edition pt.2

Hi!

I cannot believe that school starts next week! It seems like just yesterday when the summer started! I am not particularly happy that school (or in my case University) starts next week, because that means that Autumn is just right around the corner together with winter. Both of those seasons are my least favorite, because I am a person that cannot stand being cold or freezing. Probably the only thing I like about autumn is autumn fashion- layering, sweaters, scarfs - you name it! 
This week I also decided to show you some items that in my mind could be perfect for school days. If you missed my last Back to School post, you can look for it HERE! My this weeks favorite Ebay bargain is definitely the Moschino inspired McDonald's ice cream phone case. I just think it is so adorable! I also liked the one that looks like french fries as well! Another item I would love to have in my wardrobe are those distressed boyfriend denim jeans. I have been trying to find a perfect pair for a while now! Therefore, I am definitely considering to order these!

Es nespēju noticēt tam, ka skola sāksies jau nākamnedēļ! Man liekas, ka vēl tikai vakardien sākās vasara! Es neesmu īpaši priecīga par skolas atsākšanos (manā gadījumā Universitātes), jo tas nozīmē, ka rudens un ziema ir jau aiz stūra un abi šie gadalaiki pavisam noteikti nav mani mīļākie! Iemesls ir pavisam vienkāršs- es tiešām nevaru ciest to, ja man ir auksti vai es salstu! Iespējams vienīgā lieta, kas man patīk rudenī ir rudens mode- kārtu kārtas, džemperi, šalles utt.
Šonedēļ tāpat kā pagājušonedēļ es nolēmu vēlreiz parādīt dažas lietas, kas varētu būt lieliskas priekš skolas! Ja nu neredzēji, manu iepriekšējo rakstu, varu to izdarīt ŠEIT. Šīs nedēļas mīļākais atradums pavisam noteikti ir šis Moschino Mcdonald's saldējuma telefona vāciņš ( protams, pieļauju, ka tas nav oriģināls!)- manuprāt vāciņš ir dikti mīlīgs! Es atradu arī Moschino Mcdonald's frī kartupeļu vāciņu! :) Vēl viena lieta, kas man šonedēļ iekrita acīs bija šīs boyfriend tipa bikses. Es jau kādu laiku meklēju savu ideālo bikšu pāri, tāpēc pavisam noteikti apdomāšu to vai nepasūtīt šīs!

Country life pt. 1

picture-of-ray-wheat-countrylife
Hi!

Today I wanted to share with you a few snaps of one of summer holidays that I spent in my grandparent's countryside! I have spent there time for too many times to count, but only this summer I saw the beauty in places that I have never even payed that much attention to. I think it is a blessing to go out of the city to the nature, especially to a place that I hold so close to my heart! I used to go to my grandparent's more often ( I even spent weeks living there in summer together with my cousins), but now as I am working and have limited vacations, I don't get to visit my grandparent's that often, nor go to the countryside. Therefore, I am trying to enjoy every opportunity I have there.

My casual outfit

how-to-style-pink-blazer
Hi!

I think that this outfit best describes my style and the usual way I am dressing. I know, I post more dressy outfit posts on this blog, but a lot times in real life I wear a bit more relaxed and tuned down versions of them! For example, for todays look- at first I thought that I am definitely going to wear my nude color heels ( another more on the dressy side outfit), but then I thought about it and realized that today I wanted to show more realistic outfit and wear my white H&M sneakers. This is actually an outfit I wore yesterday to work!

Friday Ebay bargains #48 - Back to School edition

Hi!


I think it is quite obvious that summer is coming to an end and that school for some of us starts in less than two weeks. This year is going to be my last year in University and hopefully in June I will have already written my Bachelor thesis and received my Bachelor's degree! But the way to get there is going to be really long and even right now ( before the school has already started) I just want to be done with it! I am not 100% sure I will pursue Master's degree next year, but I think time will tell!
As school is slowly approaching I decided to include this theme in my this weeks Ebay bargains as there is not a better way to start school with new clothes, shoes and backpack for example. I have already purchased a new pencil case at H&M with adorable pugs on it, but if you are still looking for a nice way to store your school necessities, definitely check out the pencil case I found on Ebay (+ it only costs $ 0.94 (free shipping)). Another item I am really loving is this 90's shirt, you might recall my love for slogan shirts from this post, therefore, I am definitely considering getting this shirt as well as I am 90's kid! :)

LV
Manuprāt, pašlaik jau ir pašsaprotams tas fakts, ka vasara tuvojas beigām un dažiem no mums skola jau sāksies pēc nepilnām divām nedēļām! Šogad es beigšu Universitāti, tāpēc ļoti ceru, ka jau Jūnijā būšu uzrakstījusi Bakalaura darbu un būšu jau saņēmusi diplomu! Tik ļoti gribās lai viss ir jau beidzies, kaut arī vēl nekas nav sācies! :( Neesmu vēl 100% pārliecināta, ka mācīšos tālāk, lai saņemtu Maģistra grādu ( jo, man tik ļooooti ir apnicis sēdēt lekcijās), bet nu laiks rādīs!
Tā kā skola lēnām tuvojās es šonedēļ savā Ebay atradumu rakstā izvēlējos nedaudz atspoguļot skolas tematiku, jo, manuprāt, nav labāka veida kā uzsākt skolu, kā ar jaunām drēbēm, kurpēm un mugursomu! Es sev jau esmu nopirkusi jaunu penāli kādu laiku atpakaļ H&M ( ar mīlīgiem mopsīšiem), bet ja Tu vēl meklē jaunu penāli, iesaku apskatīties šo ko atradu Ebay ( jo cena pavisam draudzīga- tikai $ 0.94 + bezmaksas piegāde). Vēl viena lieta, kas man iekrita šonedēļ acīs bija 90's krekls, jo varbūt atceries manu rakstu par krekliņiem ar uzrakstiem no Ebay kādu laiciņu atpakaļ & es esmu dzimusi 1992. gadā, tāpēc šis krekliņš man lieti noderētu! :)

Earring inspiration

Hot cartilage piercing earringsmultiple ear piercings
Hi!

Recently I have been thinking about many ways on how to beautify humans body ( of course, nothing extreme). I think I have come to an age ( I am 22 if you are wondering!) when I can think clearly and make decisions based on my own judgment and thoughts. I have really been considering getting my ears pierced again- I have regular holes for earrings in my both ears + 2 more holes for additional earrings in my left ear. But as I have been browsing around Tumblr and Pinterest I have definitely started considering piercing my cartilage or tragus as I think that the right earring would look so pretty and delicate in those places! I have spent last 2 hours online browsing some amazing ear piercings and earrings that are meant for those places- you can always find a great bargain at Ebay, but my attention was fully taken by Freshtrends as they offer a really wide variety of body jewelry!
As I am still not so sure whether I will take the plunge and make these piercings in my ears, I will share with you some of my favorite pictures that I have found online and which might work as a little inspiration!

LV
Pēdējā laikā esmu domājusi par veidiem kā izskaistināt ķermeni (protams, neko ekstremālu!). Manuprāt esmu jau tajā vecumā ( man ir 22, ja nu prāto!), kad es varu veikt lēmumus balstoties uz savu spriestpēju un domām. Pēdējā laikā esmu domājusi par to, ka varētu vēlreiz caurdurt savas ausis- man ir jau parastie 2 auskaru caurumiņi + vēl 2 caurumi kreisajā ausī. Bet tā kā nesen sanāca laika paklejot pa Tumblr un Pinterest es patiešām apsveru ideju izdurt vēl caurumus skrimslī ( gan ārējā, gan arī iekšējā), jo manuprāt pareizais auskariņš varētu izskatīties ļoti skaisti un gaumīgi. Pēdējās 2 stundas esmu pavadījusi sērfojot internetā auskarus, kas paredzēti šīm auss vietām- vienmēr, protams, ir iespējams atrast labu darījumu Ebay, bet šoreiz uzmanību piesaistīja internetveikals Freshtrends, jo tas piedāvā lielu ķermeņa juvelierizstrādājumu klāstu.
Bet tā kā vēl neesmu nobriedusi līdz galam šim solim, šoreiz padalīšos ar bildītēm, kas mani pavisam noteikti iedvesmo pamēģināt! :)

Into the wild

Hi!

Tomorrow is the last day of my vacation which, honestly, sucks. I have really enjoyed the simple life of a vacation- wake up whenever I want, eat breakfast in my own pace ( usually in the mornings I am in a rush and I have about 10 minutes to eat breakfast) and just do whatever pleases me throughout the day.

Friday Ebay bargains #47

1// 2// 3// 4// 5//

Hi!

Even though, it is middle of August already and the weather in Latvia hasn't been the best these past few days, I am still posting my Friday Ebay bargains with the taste of summer. You might ask why? The answer is simple- summer is my favorite season and I will do everything that is possible to elongate it as much as I can!
It is very hard for me to choose this weeks favorite bargain as all of them are really close to my heart- especially that cute memo box! I can already imagine myself storing some of the best summer memories in there! I am also quite in love with those pink wedges which have a really cool aztec print on the wedge and awesome buckles on the top! :)

LV
Kaut arī ir jau Augusta vidus un laika apstākļi Latvijā nav gluži tie spožākie šajās pēdējajās dienās, es savus Ebay "atradumus" vēl joprojām saistu kopā ar vasaru. Kapēc? Atbilde ir vienkārša- vasara ir mans mīļākais gadalaiks un es darīšu visu kas ir manos spēkos, lai pēc iespējas vairāk to pagarinātu!
Būtu ļoti grūti izvēlētos mīļāto lietu no šī saraksta, jo visas lietas, kuras es atradu ir īpašas un labprāt redzētu tās visas manā skapī vai istabā. Es jau tagad varu iedomāties, kā saglabāju savas mīļākās un labākās vasaras atmiņas šajā mīlīgajā kastītē. Kā arī vēl man sirsniņā ir iekritušas šīs rozā kurpes, laikam jau dēļ foršā etniskā raksta un sprādzēm!

My bohemian summer

Hi!


It is day 4 in my vacation and I just couldn't feel better about it! I really love the feeling when you can go to sleep whenever you want and not have the fear of the alarm clock in the morning! The last time I could sleep till at least 10 am in the morning, was more than a month ago in my last vacation, therefore, I am fully enjoying it!

Preview of H&M Autumn/Winter 2014 collection

Hi!

Today I have an exciting post prepared for you! A little more than a month ago I payed a visit to H&M's showroom here in Latvia and got the chance to lay my eyes on the upcoming H&M Autumn/Winter 2014 collection! I really had a great time at Showroom as the manager Sanita always makes me feel very welcomed! 

Friday Ebay bargains #46

Hi!

Today is my last day before my vacation starts! How awesome is that? :) Tomorrow is my name day and me and my family will go on a little road trip to some of Latvian cities- I really love finding out new places in my country! Sometimes you don't need to spend a big amount of money to go abroad when you can find new and exciting places in the country you are already living in! I will probably spend my vacation in my summer house in Saulkrasti, I just cannot wait to relax, sunbathe, ride bikes and go to the beach- those are perfect holidays for me! :)
Anyways, as you know today is Friday and I am sharing with you my weekly Ebay bargains! :) As yesterday I shared with you one way how I protect my phone with a case, today I wanted to show you one more way to protect your smartphone with screen protectors, I use mine all the time! The one I put in the collage is meant for Iphone S5, but if you have Samsung Galaxy S4 ( like me) you can get the screen protector here or Samsung Galaxy S5, then here
As summer is slowly starting to come to an end I decided to show more items in light colors ( like white and light blue), because light colors will really highlight your summer tan! My favorite item of the week is definitely those cute flower print pom pom shorts! :)

LV
Vēl tikai šī diena un mans atvaļinājums varēs oficiāli sākties! Cik gan forši ir tas? :) Rītdien ir mana vārda diena un es un mana ģimene dosimies nelielā izbraucienā uz dažām Latvijas pilsētām- man tiešām  ļoti patīk apmeklēt dažādas Latvijas mazpilsētas un atklāt skaistas vietas tepatās! Dažreiz nav nepieciešams iztērēt lielu naudas summu, lai redzētu ārzemes, ja Latvijā ir vēl joprojām tik daudzas skaistas vietas ko atklāt! Savu atvaļinājumu es visticamāk, ka pavadīšu Saulkrastos savā vasaras mājā, kur varēšu kārtīgi atpūsties- sauļoties, braukāties ar riteņiem, iet uz jūru utml! 
Šodien ir Piektdiena un kā jau vienmēr esmu sagatavojusi Piektdienas Ebay atradumu rakstu! Ja vakardien es jums parādīju vienu veidu kā pasargāju telefonu, tad šodien es vēlējos parādīt vēl vienu veidu, kuru es lietoju visu laiku! Kolāžā redzamā telefona plēvīte ir domāta Iphone S5, savukārt, ja esi Samsung Galaxy S4 lietotāja/s kā es, tad tāda paša veida plēvīti atradīsi šeit, bet ja Samsung Galaxy S5 lietotāja/s tad šeit!
Tā kā vasara tuvojas uz beigām es nolēmu parādīt apģērbu un aksesuārus gaišās krāsās ( piemēram, baltā un gaiši zilā), jo šīs krāsas ļoti labi izceļ vasaras iedegumu! Mans mīļākais atradums neapšaubāmi ir šie ziedu raksta bumbulīšu šorti! :)

Phone case: Call me Maddie

Hi!

I just had to share with you the sweetest gift I received from my boyfriend on my upcoming name day! I had no clue he could be so thoughtful and sweet! The fact that he listened when I over and over whined about my old phone case and the fact that he gave me a personalized- so close to my heart, phone case really warms my heart! He is the best! :) He shared a secret with me on where to make/get personalized phone cases/covers in case you are interested: http://www.licessories.eu/en/

LV
Man tik ļoti prasījās padalīties ar jums ar pašu jaukāko dāvanu kuru saņēmu no sava puiša uz savu vārda dienu ( vēl pēc divām dienām). Man tiešām nebija ne jausmas, ka viņš varētu būt tik uzmanīgs un mīļš! Tas vien, ka viņš tiešām ieklausījās manī, kad visu laiku čīkstēju par savu veco telefona vāciņu un, ka viņš izvēlējās uzdāvināt personalizētu telefona vāciņu ar uzrakstu, kas man ir ļoti sirsniņai tuvs, tik tiešām aizkustināja mani! Viņš ir pats labākais! :) Viņš padalījās ar noslēpumu arī to, kur var iegūt/izveidot šādus personalizētus vāciņus, gadījumā, ja nu ir interese: http://www.licessories.eu/en/

New page- wishlist

wishlist-call-me-maddie
Hi!

I just quickly wanted to share with you my latest page on my blog- wishlist. It is a page dedicated to my current covets. I intend to update this page very frequently ( I hope at least once in a week) with items I have spotted over different online stores ( such as Asos, River Island and so on). I decided to make a page like this, because as you know I have my weekly Ebay bargains and as I am posting them every Friday I very rarely have time to show you items that are actually not Ebay related ( there is sooooo much stufff out there)! Therefore, if you are interested, once in a while check out my wishlist page! :)
All images are clickable and directly linked!

LV
Šodien es ātri vēlējos jūs iepazīstināt ar jaunāko mana bloga lapu- wishlist ( latviskojot- vēlmju sarakstu). Šī lapa ir domāta tam, lai parādītu manus šībrīža vēlmes no dažādiem Interneta veikaliem- piemēram Asos, River Island, Victorias Secret utt. Es izlēmu izveidot šādu lapu, jo kā jau jūs to zinat katru nedēļu savā blogā es rakstu par saviem Ebay atradumiem un tā kā šos rakstus es publicēju katru Piektdienu, man ļoti reti sanāk laiks, lai parādītu lietas, kas man ir iekritušas sirsniņā, bet nav saistītas ar Ebay. Tāpēc, ja ir interese ik pa laikam pačeko manu "wishlist" lapu! :)

Aqua

Hi!

The heat wave in Latvia is truly indescribable. I don't think I have experienced that much time of hot weather- ever! Today it was so hard to get back from work. Imagine- I am working 6-8 hours at a fully air conditioned retail store and I have no idea of the weather outside ( no windows), therefore, when I left the shopping centre, at the first moment it felt like I was suffocating, because the air was so hot! Though, the biggest struggle for me was getting home in a crowded bus which drove for 45 minutes- it really felt like I could faint at any moment!
But even despite these conditions, I wouldn't trade them for anything as I know that soon fall will start and so will winter- both of them are at my two last places of favorite weather! :D 

Friday Ebay bargains #45- Fashion slogan shirts

Hi!


Shirts with slogans on them have been massively popular for a while right now. Even I have a slogan shirt ( if you remember this post). Therefore, I wanted to share with you some of the shirts I have found on Ebay that not only are a great bargain, but would chic up any outfit! My favorite of the bunch must be the "You go Glen Coco" shirt, I just love the reference to Mean Girls ( you can watch this clip to see it yourself). Another shirt  one I would love to have is the last shirt- I mean who doesn't love Vogue, right? :)
Are you a fan of slogan shirts?

LV
T-krekli ar uzrakstiem ir ļoti populāri jau zināmu laiciņu. Pat es esmu ļāvusies kārdinājumam un dabūjusi sev šādu krekliņu pati- atceries šo rakstu? Tāpēc šonedēļ savos iknedēļas Ebay atradumos vēlējos padalīties ar dažiem krekliem, kurus veiksmīgi sameklēju un kuri ne tikai ir par saprātīgu cenu, bet arī "uzfrišinātu" jebkuru  modīgu outfitu! Mans mīļākais krekls ir 2. krekls, lielākoties dēļ tā fakta, ka pats teksts ir ņemts no filmas Mean Girls ( vari noskatīties klipu ar to vietu šeit). Savukārt, ja man būtu jāizvēlas vēl viens krekliņš tad tas būtu pēdējais "Vogue"- jo kurai gan meitenei nepatīk Vogue, vai ne? :)
