Hi!

I think that this is the first time ever when I am posting 2 window sill series in a row.  I hope that you are ok with that! I like making outdoor outfit posts a bit more, but this time there was completely nobody that could do that for me! It just sucks how us (bloggers) have to depend so much on other people, right? A lot of times I wish I could be both- in front and behind the camera! :D
Anyways, today I would love to show you my newest dress that I received courtesy of WalG. I have worked with WalG before ( you can see my previous collaboration in this post) and there is only good things to say about this brand. I have really enjoyed both items that I have received, especially this dress- I think it is very, very pretty and fits me so good. The quality is splendid and you will definitely not regret orders from WalG! :)

Friday Ebay bargains #54

Hi!

Oh, hey you! How is the fall in your country? Because it surely feels like fall in Latvia has already settled in. The weather outside is very cool and windy + a lot of days are rainy! :/ Therefore, I was a bit inspired by the weather when I collected my this weeks Ebay bargains! :)
The first thing that I immediately knew I had to include in my article was an EOS lip balm in a flavour of tangerines! I know I might be a bit ahead with tangerines as they usually are related with Christmas, well at least, in  my contry! Are tangerines associated with Christmas in your country as well or am I just talking about stuff only latvians know about?
My lips crack very, very easily and most of the time I will have lips with little red spots ( because I bite them too much), therefore, I think that this lip balm might be extremely useful! :)
And another item I am really gushing over is this fall leaves necklace! I think it is super appropriate for the theme of fall and I have put in my Ebay basket already, all I have to do is to buy it! :) + the price (2.25) is ridiculous! So cheap!

LV
Sveiks, tu! :) Tā kā rudens mūsu mazajā Latvijā ir iekārtojies uz palikšanu ( vismaz laika apstākļi pavisam noteikti par to jau liecina!), es šonedēļ savus atradumus nedaudz saistīju ar rudens tematiku.
Pirmā lieta, kas man uzreiz ieskrēja galvā, ko man vajadzētu iekļaut šīs nedēļas rakstā bija EOS lūpu balzāms ar mandarīnu garšu un smaržu ( esmu lasījusi daudzas lieliskas atsauksmes). Es zinu, var jau būt esmu bišķiņ pārsteigusies ar mandarīniem, jo parasti mums tie saistās ar Ziemassvētkiem, bet varu iedomāties cik lielisks ir šis lūpu balzāms.  :) Manas lūpas ļoti ātri sasprēgā un lielākoties mani var redzēt ar nedaudz sarkanām lūpām, jo ir nelāgs ieradums sasprēgājušās lūpas knibināt! :/ Tāpēc labprāt pamēģinātu šo mazulīti!
Un vēl viena lietiņa, kura pavisam noteikti būs manā īpašumā ( groziņā Ebay'ā jau ir ielikta) ir šī bronzīgā lapu kaklarota. Manuprāt, tā lieliski iederas šajā gada laikā un cena ir ļoti draudzīga- tikai 2.25 dolāri!

Esprit store opening

esprit-store-opening-event-latvia
Hi!

As I promised last week, today I am quickly showing some pictures of the store opening of a brand Esprit. The whole event was lovely and I got the chance to preview Esprit clothes first as this store is reentering Latvian market after few years of silence. Delicious snacks were served and we were able to freshen up with a glass of champagne ( who doesn't like champagne, right?).
I attended the event solo which was a struggle at first as everybody seemed to know each other and, even though, I am a bubbly person sometimes it gets socially awkward even for me! :D But luckily as I said in this post, I got  the chance to meet a fellow Latvian blogger! Which was really cool as it felt like I knew her already ( from reading her blog, obviously!). Anyways, enjoy some of the pictures! :)

Hi!

Brrr, the weather outside has been pretty horrific in these last two days. Today I wore so many layers, but still the wind somehow got through them and even here, at my home, I cannot stop shivering. As the weather has definitely not been on my side I had to take matters in my own hands and take outfit pictures at home. You might recognize them as my "Window sill" post series, in which I basically need a tripod, remote control & camera- voila and I'm done! There is no need for a photographer, nobody is staring at you ( well, except my cat- she always stares at me when I am doing this), nobody is pointing fingers etc. Those are just some of the common struggles I have when taking my outfit  pictures outside!
I am seriously in love with the amazingly beautiful Chi Chi dress (UK brand) I was received in my post office. The dress fits me like a glove and I cannot wait to wear it on some occasion ( hopefully an event will occur soon!) It is very girly, yes, even though, I am 22 years old, I still like wearing girly clothing. The most important thing is that this dress made me feel good and that is something I really look for in clothing!

Quiz tropical print dress

quiz-tropical-print-dress
Hi!



The weather has been so weird lately- the mornings are super cold (about +3C to +6C) and I usually tuck in my leather jacket and my big tartan scarf, but then again- the day is very warm and sunny, it even warms up to +20C. Which feels so weird as right now as I am tucked in under two blankets ( it is so cold in my flat, they only put the heating up when the average temperature is under +8C) writing this blog post and sipping a glass of wine ( just like the ones you can get on JJ Buckley) while peeking an eye in an MTV show- haha, I guess I am the best example of multi tasking! :D
As the weather was really great in the day on last Sunday I decided to wear my new dress from Quiz Clothing in a beautiful tropical print. The dress ideally would be so perfect for summer, but I did get it later than I expected and I should definitely start wearing more fall appropriate garments! But as the dress is so beautiful I still wanted to show it off to you (+ it is on SALE right now- only 12 pounds!)! To complete the look, I decided to wear my newest clip in hair extensions from Hairtrade ( I have already worked with this brand before, you can see my previous look here). This time I decided to order hair dark blonde hair extensions in size 18" (approximately 45cm) which are a bit longer than my real hair, therefore, my hair looks more thick and healthy. I am really loving the extensions I received and I would definitely suggest to you  to get them too ( of course, if you are in need of them) as Hairtrade definitely doesn't disappoint! :)

Hi!

Pastels are most frequently associated with spring. But this year there is a twist to that as pastel colors are still in even in the season of Fall. And you know what? I am totally loving it! Of course, for fall I am the biggest fan of burgundy color ( you can see proof of that in my last Ebay post), but there is just something in the beautiful sugary colors of pastels! I have seen multiple cotton candy and mint color items while working at H&M, and yesterday I saw a mint color coat at Esprit store opening! You can see yourself some A/W runway looks with pastel color clothing and accessories right here. ( this post was actually an inspiration for this post!). 
My favorite item without any doubts is this amazing mint color coat! I have been a big fan of candy colored coats for the first moment they began their winning streak, but for some reason I still don't have one in my closet! This coat is definitely really close to what I would love to see and incorporate in my fall looks!

LV
Pasteļkrāsas visbiežāk tie asociētas ar pavasari, bet šogad izskatās, ka šis sava veida modes likums ir nedaudz apgriezies ap savu asi, jo pasteļkrāsas būs modīgas arī šoruden. Un ziniet ko? Manuprāt, tas ir lieliski! Protams, rudenī es visvairāk fanoju par bordo krāsu ( vari redzēt pierādījumu tam manā pagājušajā Ebay rakstā), bet tā man visvairāk patīk valkāt gaišas un krāsainas drēbes, šis pavērsiens mani priecē! Es esmu redzējusi ļoti daudzas drēbes maigi rozā un gaišā piparmētru krāsā, kamēr esmu darbā ( H&M), kā arī vakardien ieraudzīju lielisku piparmētru zaļu mētelīti Esprit veikala atklāšanas pasākumā! Kā arī variet apskatīt dažas bildes un rakstu, kas man kalpoja par iedvesmu šim rakstam šeit.
Mana mīļākā lieta šonedēļ no Ebay, pavisam noteikti būs šis mētelītis, es esmu bijusi diezgan liela pasteļkrāsu mēteļu fane jau kopš tā mirkļa kad tie kļuva populāri. Bet vēl joprojām neesmu sev tādu iegādājusies, bet šim mētelim ir tiešām liels potenciāls, lai nonāktu manā skapī! :)

Neon accents

white-blazer-blue-jeans
Hi!

Today I had a really eventful day- in the morning I went to the post office and received a really lovely dress from Chi Chi London ( cannot wait to to show it off to you), I immediately tried it on and decided to have a mini photo shoot on the window sill with the help of remote control and tripod ( I will probably show the photos next week as still have plenty of stuff for this week!). After that I went to University and studied real hard! Well, ok, not maybe really hard as I took my PC with me and a lot of time I was just browsing the Internet, then After University I went almost straight to a really nice event- Esprit store opening, to which I was kindly invited! Yaiy for fashion events! :) I had a really lovely time there and even met a fellow Latvian blogger Santa (from santa.kudrenicka.blogspot.com), but I think I will make a separate post about the event later this week or at the start of the next week so you'll get more deets! :)
Anyways, today I am showing you  my latest outfit post. I am really super excited about this outfit and it definitely is one of my favorites. Big thanks to my amazing boyfriend who constantly takes time out of his life to take pictures of me!. As you can see, I am wearing a lot of items I showed you in my last "New in" post! I am definitely head over heels in love with the amazing neon heels. I am always cautious when ordering shoes online, but this pair of heels from Lovelywholesale proved to be really amazing- the quality is really nice and the fit is close to perfect! :)

Hi!

Burgundy. A color that for most people ( or I can definitely speak for myself) associates with the season of Fall. Burgundy ( also known as wine red) is actually one of my favorite colors that I tend to wear in Fall dearly. In this weeks bargains I decided to include this color in accessories. Floppy hats are one of my favorite kind of hats, I already have one in black ( you can see an outfit post here), but I would definitely love to get one in this color as well ( it is only $ 7.01!). And as I have heard so many good reviews on NYX lipsticks this week I wanted to show you one that you can actually buy on Ebay in a perfect Fall ready color. I only wear pink or red classic lipsticks, but as I would like to get out of my comfort zone, I would definitely be up to try something darker!


LV
Bordo krāsa. Šī krāsa lielākajai daļai cilvēku ( nu es vismaz varu pavisam droši runāt par sevi) asociējās ar rudeni. Bordo krāsa ( arī atpazīstama kā vīna sarkanā) ir viena no manām mīļākajām krāsām, kuru rudenī es mēdzu valkāt pat ļoti bieži! Šonedēļ savā Ebay rakstā es izvēlējos šo krāsu iekļaut nelielos daudzumos- kā aksesuārus. Platmales ir viens no maniem mīļākajiem cepuru veidiem, man jau ir viena melnā krāsā ( vari apskatīt outfit rakstu šeit), bet es pavisam noteikti neatteiktos arī no šīs cepures, kura maksā tikai aptuveni 7 dolārus! Kā arī tā kā esmu dzirdējusi labas atsauksmes par NYX lūpu krāsām, šonedēļ es vēlējos jums parādīt vienu lūpu krāsas modeli, ko vari nopirkt Ebay super rudenim piemērotā krāsā! Ja sanāk uzkrāsot lūpas, tad visbiežāk tās krāsoju rozīgā vai klasiski sarkanā krāsā, bet tā kā es labprāt paeksperimentētu un izietu ārpus savas komforta zonas, es labprāt pamēģinātu arī šo toni!

A day in Kuldīga

street-style-hot-pink-blazer
Hi!

The weather lately in Latvia has been more like in summer than in fall- it has been sunny with temperature above +20C for the couple of days and, honestly, I couldn't be more happy about it. That's why my outfits are still in colorful colors and I am wearing a lot of summery items, for example I wore an amazing hot pink blazer on a family day ( we were celebrating my granddad's 75th birthday) in Kuldīga  which is an amazing, really beautiful city in Latvia! If you ever get a chance to go to Latvia- definitely go this place!
Only now when I am making this outfit post I realized that almost every item I am wearing is from H&M. It does happen to me a lot of times because my wardrobe mostly consists of clothing and accessories from H&M. Which is quite self-evident as I work there! How is the weather in your country? Have you already started wearing fall clothes?

New in

Hi!

Today I have a quick post for you guys as I wanted to show you some of the latest items I have right now in my closet! Everything you see in this post is courtesy of an online store called Lovelywholesale. This is the second time I have been working with them- even though, they did mix up my order a bit ( I ordered a different watch) so far it has been really good. This is the second time I have ordered shoes from them ( you can see my previous post right here) and I am impressed with the fact that both times the shoes have fit me to the toe! You always have to be careful with ordering shoes online, because it is very important that the fit is as good as it gets, because I couldn't stress more the importance of wearing right shoes. So with that being said, I ordered shoes in size 40, even though, on regular basis I wear size 39, but with items that come from Asian countries I have come to learn to practically always order items a size bigger than I would normally go for! 
Anyways, enjoy my review! :)

A visit to Polhem PR Showroom in Latvia

Marks-and-Spencer-polhem
Marks & Spencer
Hi!

Today I wanted to show you couple of pictures I took when I was visiting Polhem PR showroom that they have in Latvia. I was really pleasantly surprised when a representative from Polhem contacted and invited me to see with my own eyes the latest collections of New Yorker, Marks & Spencer, Tamaris and so on. I am always surprised when somebody from Latvia recognizes me for my blog and I get invited to fashion related events or see the newest collections as a fashion blogger. Or even when people tell me things like- "I really liked your latest blog post"; "Those were such great pictures" and so on, because I still think that the only person reading my blog is me myself and probably my mom! :D Therefore, I always appreciate the little things- feedback, compliments,  and things like invitations and opportunities to collaborate with different brands, because sometimes I just get a really surreal feeling that I am dreaming as I still think of me as just a random person behind the computer screen.
Anyways, besides that I was really happy to meet the representatives from Polhem PR Latvia and here you can enjoy some pictures of my favorites items and brands! :)

Friday Ebay bargains #50 Geneva Watches

Hi!


I really cannot believe I have been doing my Friday Ebay bargains for already 50 weeks! I haven't skipped one yet ( *proud moment of myself!*). The most popular item you guys always love on my Friday Ebay bargains posts are watches. Therefore, I decided to dedicate the 50th post of these series to one of my favorite fashion accessories- watches. Concentrating especially on Geneva watches as I have a long experience with them ( I have been using them for more than a year right now!). Geneva watches are really great- they are very cheap ( I don't think I have listed any of the watches that cost more than 3 dollars (yep, you heard me right, under only 3 bucks + free shipping!) and will last at least a year. I can say that from my experience. I have already added nr1, nr2 & nr3 in my Ebay cart and + maybe I will add some more, because overall the sum is not even $10! 
Have you ever ordered watches from Ebay?

LV
Es patiešām nespēju noticēt tam, ka jau 50 nedēļu pēc kārtas rakstu Ebay "atradumu" rakstus! Es tiešām neesmu izlaidusi vēl nevienu nedēļa ( haha, ļoti lepojos ar sevi :D ). Vispopulārākā lieta, ko parasti Piektdienas rakstos jums visvairāk patīk ir pulksteņi. Tāpēc savu 50 Ebay sērijas rakstu es nolēmu veltīt maniem mīļākajiem modes aksesuāriem- pulksteņiem. Koncentrējos īpašu uz Geneva firmas pulksteņiem, jo man ir jau vairāk kā gada pieredze ar tiem. Geneva pulksteņi ir patiešām lēti ( man liekas, ka neviens pulkstenis šajā sarakstā nemaksā vairāk par 3 dolāriem + bezmaksas piegāde! Tāda sajūta, ka bez maz vai pa brīvu!), kā arī pulksteņi nokalpo apmēram 1 gadu ( nu vismaz tā bija manā gadījumā!). Pašlaik manā Ebay grozā jau ir nr1, nr2 un nr3, bet ir doma pievienot vēl kādu, jo kopsumma pat nesasniedz 10 dolārus! Esi kādreiz pasūtījusi pulksteņus Ebay?

A walk in Kalnciema quarter

Kalnciema-kvartāls-mode
Hi!

This is an outfit that I decided to wear on a date On Sunday with my boyfriend. The date was pretty simple- we decided to go to a place in Riga called Kalnciema quarter and just walk around and explore the beautiful surroundings in this place of city. Later we went to a pizzeria and had a lunch (pizzas are one of my favorite dishes! I just loooove Italian cuisine overall). So as I understood that we will be walking a lot, I decided to wear something comfortable ( I don't think that sneakers could scream comfort even more!), but also to add a bit of glamor, it is a date after all, with accessories and jewelry!

Mini H&M Haul

H&M-fall-winter-2014-collection-clothes
Hi!

As Fall is slowly or I might even say rapidly approaching I decided to have a little shopping spree at H&M ( it is the place I work in, duh- so obviously). I had some things on my mind that I wanted to try on while I was working ( for example, while working in stock and unpacking boxes, or while doing garment care in the store). But there were also items that I decided to buy at the last moment, because I just liked them too much ( for example, those daisy earrings).
