Hi!

I always thought that pink color didn't go together with dark colors, that's why I have almost never worn pink together with black! But as I was browsing Ebay this cotton candy pink coat caught my eye right away and I decided to include it in my this weeks Ebay bargains post! If you have been reading my blog for a while you might have noticed that in my weekly Ebay posts I usually try to match all the items together, so they could be worn as a complete outfit. That's why at first I thought of finding items in light colors ( as it was my fashion rule- not to wear light pink with dark colors). But then I found this checkers print dress and I instantly knew that it with the coat would make such a great match! I would definitely wear the outfit I put together in this post, if only I wasn't a student on a tight budget and I wouldn't have to save my money all the time and not spend it on Ebay :D

Man vienmēr bija licies, ka gaiši rozā krāsu nevar valkāt kopā ar tumšām krāsām- tāpēc es gandrīz nekad iepriekš neesmu miksēju kopā gaiši rozā, piemēram, ar melno krāsu. Bet šonedēļ "sērfojot" Ebay'ā šis mīkstais gaiši rozā mētelītis uzreiz iekrita man acīs! Ja Tu manu blogu lasi jau kādu laiciņu, tad būsi pamanījis, ka parasti savus Ebay "atradumus" es cenšos saskaņot kopā tā, lai sanāk gatavs tērps! Tieši tāpēc no sākuma es Ebay'ā meklēju  lietas, kas labi izskatītos ar šo mētelīti tieši gaišās krāsās. Bet tad es atradu šo melnbalto kleitiņu un, manuprāt, tā lieliski izskatītos kopā jau ar manis minēto mēteli un dažiem aksesuāriem, kurus izvēlējos (visvairāk man patīk tie auskariņi- tik lēti!) ! Es pavisam noteikti uzvilktu visas lietas, kuras ir redzamas šajā rakstā, ja vien es nebūtu studentu ar nelieliem ienākumiem un, ja vien es jau tāpat netērētu tik daudz naudas Ebay! :D

Styling a striped blazer

latvia-street-style

Hi!

Thank God the weather warmed up a bit, because last week I was so freezing! Even though, the temperature is not the warmest outside and you definitely cannot walk around without your coat on, I decided to take my coat off and show you this amazing striped blazer I received courtesy of Black Five. Maybe you will remember me saying that that this blazer was my favorite item I have received while being a blogger, then I can say that this blazer is definitely a very close second! Not only I received the lovely blazer, but also Black Five sent me a nice pair of earrings as well! I have worn these earrings only twice, but I have received so many compliments on how great they look ( people even want to touch them :D ). Therefore, all in all, I am very satisfied with both items and at this point I couldn't recommend browsing at Black Five no more! :)

New in: Clothes from Miss Rebel

missrebel-clothing-haul-review
Hi!


Today I quickly wanted to show you some of the clothing items I received last week in courtesy of a British brand called Miss Rebel. This was the first time I have collaborated with this brand and tried out their products! And I can honestly say that I had an amazing experience! First of all the representative from Miss Rebel was really nice and helpful, second of all, the delivery was very speedy I received all of the items in a weeks time via courier. And thirdly, I am very satisfied with all three items- all of them fit me and are made out of very nice ( pleasant to the skin) materials that look and are qualitative!

Hi!


Are you loving my new Quiz clothing black patent shoes as much as I am? This pair of black heels is honestly one of the best and most comfortable pair of shoes I have received, therefore, I will take the opportunity to thank Etail for arranging this amazing collaboration with me and Quiz! I don't think that there can be enough pairs of black shoes, well, at least it is certainly the case for me! I decided to wear almost an all black outfit and add some pop of color with red lips! I have been wearing a red lipstick ( starting from bright red to burgundy red) a lot of times recently! If you would ask me if I would be wearing a red lipstick on daily basis a few years ago, I would say that you were crazy, because red lipstick really intimidated me back then. But now I really like playing with different shades of lipsticks, I think it is such a cool way to diversify the look and gain more confidence! 

Friday Ebay bargains: watches review

watches-from-ebay-review
Hi!


For this weeks Ebay bargains I decided to change it up a bit and show you some watches ( spoiler alert one necklace as well), that I bought last month! I had scheduled this post a bit later, but as the delivery was relatively fast ( I think I received the last item on 21st day after buying it). It usually takes more than a month for the items to arrived, therefore, I was pleasantly surprised! Watches are probably my favorite thing to order on Ebay as they are extremely cheap ( the most expensive watch in this review was a bit over $3!). I know I have done a Geneva silicone watch review before, but I wanted to review them again as 1) there are new readers to my blog that might not dig that deep in the archives of my blog and 2) because after using both color watches for a year they stopped working- that's why I wanted to do a little update!

Paul Mitchell hair product review

paul-mitchell-product-review

Hi!


It definitely has been a while since my last beauty product review. Therefore, the timing for me receiving some Paul Mithcell goodies from Hairtrade couldn't have been more perfect. I am definitely a very big freak when it comes to my hair. I am constantly obsessing and worrying about them. That is because my hair is very fragile and damage very easily ( it might be a result from bleaching them once or twice a year). I very easily get split ends and it is practically impossible to grow longer hair than I have at the moment, because I would consider my hair thin and the fact that they break so easily is not helping either. So with that being said I was very eager to try out Paul Mitchell Shampoo One and Conditioner One as I am always trying to find newer and better hair products for my hair!

Staple piece for fall 2014- tartan scarf

feature-in-shape-magazine
Hi!

Sunday is meant to be Funday, right? Then why the first half of the day I was sitting by the books and trying to study for an exam, 2 tests and presentation next week? And the second half I was working- Sunday is no Funday for me! :D What exciting did you do this weekened? :)
I have such exciting news to share with you guys! I was featured in the street style page of Shape magazine! I know it is not a lot, but I really love the fact that I am able to hold in my arms a printed piece of my photo and my style! Haha, I am definitely going to store this magazine and show it to my grandchildren :D

Friday Ebay bargains #57

tartan-plaid-shirt-ebay
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 //
Hi!

My favorite clothing item to wear in fall is probably a tartan/plaid shirt ( especially if it is a flannel shirt). Not only they look super chic when worn traditionally, but also pretty awesome when tied around your waist. And they are a really great clothing item to wear not only to look stylish, but to be warm and cozy as well! This week I found an amazing tartan shirt for only a bit over $17 ( price + shipping!). I already have 2 or 3 plaid shirts in my closet, but I don't think that it will stop me for buying more and more and more ( haha, I think I could write a book about my obsession with clothes :D).
One more item I am utterly in love is that wolf chain necklace! I really love anything that has a wolf print or symbol on them ( I already have a shirt, sweater and ring). I think they look pretty dang cool! Therefore, I think I am seriously considering buying this necklace as it is so cheap- only $3.27!

LV
Mans mīļākais apģērba gabals ko vilkt rudenī pavisam noteikti ir rūtaini krekli ( it īpaši, ja tie ir flaneļa krekli). Manuprāt, tie ne tikai izskatās lieliski, kad uzvilkti tradicionālajā veidā, bet arī, kad apsieti ap vidukli ( viegls veids kā panākt grunge izskatu). Manuprāt rūtaini flaneļa krekli ne vien izskatās ļoti forši, bet ir arī diezgan silti- kas ir ļoti liels + šajos vēsajos laika apstākļos! Šonedēļ es atradu šo kreklu, kura cena ir nedaudz virs 17 dolāriem ( cena+pasta izdevumi). 
Vēl viena lietiņa, kas man iekrita acīs bija kaklarota ar vilku. Man tiešām ļoti patīk drēbes un aksesuāri ar vilka attēlu vai simbolu ( man jau ir viens krekliņš, džemperis un gredzens), tāpēc es iespējams nopirkšu šo kaklarotu, jo tā ir smieklīgi lēta- tikai 3.27 dolāri!

12 random facts about me pt.2

IMG_0962
Hi!

The last time I got down and really personal on my blog was more than 6 months ago when I published the first post in which I talked about just some random facts about me! As a lot of you seemed to liked the idea- I got so much positive feedback and such lovely comments ( some of them truly melted my heart- I have the best readers!). Therefore, as a lot of time has come by, I thought of why not to make a second part of this kind of post and again get a bit more real and personal with you! In the first post I told some more basic facts about me, but this time I decided to dig a bit deeper and share with you some more quirky and interesting facts ( I guess a bit more random!) That is why I will not post 20 facts as the post would be too long, but 12 facts as I am writing a bit more in each of the fact! And if you are a tiny bit as nosy as I am I think you'll like this post! :)

Staple piece for fall 2014- leather biker jacket

staple-piece-for-fall-2014
Hi!

Sometimes I think that I could be a walking H&M advertisement, because almsot everything I am wearing is from H&M! I have told you several times before, that I am working at H&M and that most of clothes come from there, because as you can imagine I do have a staff discount and as I am surrounded by clothes all the time it is hard to refuse some good deals as I get to see them first! These outfit pictures were taken by my mom, so kudos to her! :)

Friday Ebay bargains #56

Hi!


Today I am in a light mood, therefore, I decided to show you some items that could light up your mood and your outfit as the weather outside in this time of year can get really nasty and depressing! My favorite item without any doubts must be that shirt with the bear print on it! I don't know why, but it just catched my eye right away ( probably because of the awesome triangle print inside of the bear). Sure, it is a bit pricey for a t-shirt- $8.84 + $8.84 shipping, but I am definitely considering buying it as I love how unique it looks!~
Anyways, now I will go and make a hot cup of cocoa as I am a bit tired from working 8 hours today & I will snuggle up in my plush blanket and watch either Greys Anatomy or The Vampire Diaries! :)

LV
Neskatoties uz to, ka laika apstākļi pēdējās dienās ir bijuši nedaudz depresīvi un nomācoši, man ir diezgan labs gara stāvoklis ( kas ir dīvaini, jo manu gara stāvokli ļoti bieži regulē ārā esošie laika apstākļi). Tieši tāpēc šodien es vēlējos jums parādīt dažas lietas no Ebay, kas vai nu uzlabos tavu garastāvokli, vai arī tavu apģērbu! :) Šīs nedēļas mīļākā lieta, ko atradu bija šis t-krekls ar lāča simbolu, nezinu kāpēc, bet krekliņš uzreiz piesaistīja manu uzmanību ( iespējams dēļ foršā trīsstūru raksta lāča iekšpusē). Lai gan krekliņš ir padārgs priekš Ebay standartiem- $8.84 + $8.84 pasta izdevumi, iespējams to pasūtīšu, lai gan pirms tam ielūkošos savā bankas kontā :D

A weekend in Fall

fashion-blogger-from-latvia
Hi!


As I told you on my last post, this weekend I had the opportunity to have a little road trip to small cities of Latvia ( Sigulda, Turaida and Līgatne) and just enjoy the beauty of fall! If you ever happen to be in Latvia around this time, I would highly recommend visiting these places as you can experience the true beauty of fall with beautiful scenic views and amazing colors. Me and my boyfriend were planning on going there for 2 weeks already, but it is way more fun if you have company, right? That's why we asked my brother's family to come along and just have fun time together! :) Haha, that reminds me of a funny story that happened during the trip. Me and my sister-in-law Laura were sitting in the front seats of the car ( she was driving) and my brother, my boyfriend and my niece were in the back seats. We are normally driving ( chatting and listening to the radio) when all of a sudden we hear some car wildly honking and as we looked to the next lane on the right, we saw some guy showing us a really creepy smile and slowly waving at us. Oh my God, I hadn't laughed that much for a really long time. Apparently those guys in the car wanted to meet us and as the car has tinted windows in the back- they didn't see that we were already taken! :D I guess I will never forget that creepy smile ( it looked somewhat like this) :D
Anyways, enjoy some of the pictures I took & I even persuaded my boyfriend into having a little photo shoot, so you can see my outfit towards the end of this post! :)

My TOP 7 summer outfits

top-seven-summer-outfits
Hi!

The second month of Fall has already settled in and for some reason I am not even complaining about it as much as I used to. Maybe it is because yesterday me, my boyfriend and my brother's family had a really lovely trip to small Latvian cities like Sigulda and Līgatne- those are the usual places Latvians go to enjoy the beauty of fall as you can see some really beautiful scenic views ( just look at my post from 2 years ago). Therefore, today I am just happy with everything as it is, but nothing will change the fact that summer is my all time favorite season and that I feel most like myself in a warm/sunny setting! That's why today I decided to sum up some of my favorite summer of 2014 looks. I put them in a descending order (judged by the feedback I got from view count, comments, lookbok etc). You can just click on the picture or the title to see the full post! :)

Hi!

*I'm so fancy*, ahh, I guess you just like me will not be able to get this song out of your head! :D I think that this t-shirt would be a really great statement shirt ( because aren't we all fancy?). If I wouldn't have spent almost all of my salary, I would definitely order the shirt right away! :D But I also ordered bunch of stuff from Ebay last week ( 4 watches (!) and 2 necklaces), so I should stop browsing Ebay as it is really unhealthy to my wallet! :D
Another item I am really loving is this coat ( it is also available in cobalt blue color- cannot decided which one I like more!). I really like the leather detailing and the side zipper, plus,  the price is very friendly: only $23.76 + free shipping!
Ok, now I should really close my Ebay tab as I think won't be able to stop myself from spending some dollars! :D Luckily I have so many tv-shows to catch up on- Vampire Diaries, Modern Family, Awkward and Survivor! Those are definitely my favorites! :) Which tv shows this season are your favorites?

LV
*I'm so fancy*, man liekas, ka ne tikai es, bet arī tu nevarēsi šo dziesmu izdabūt no galvas ārā tuvākajā laikā! :D Ja vien es nebūtu iztērējusi jau vairāk kā pusi no savas algas, tad es pasūtīto šo kreklu jau tagad! Bet tā kā vēl tikai pagājušonedēļ es Ebayā pasūtīju pāris lietiņas ( 4 pulksteņus (!) un divas kaklarotas), man tagad vajadzētu aizvērt Ebay cilni, jo Ebay pavisam noteikti ir kaitīgs manam makam! :D
Vēl viena lieta, kas man šonedēļ iekrita acīs, bija šis mētelis ( pieejams arī kobaltzilā krāsā- nevaru pat izvēlēties, kurā krāsā man mētelis patīk labāk). Šim mētelim man ļoti patīk ādas imitācijas detaļas, kā arī sāna rāvējslēdzējs, kā arī cena ir ļoti draudzīga: tikai 23.76 dolāriem + bezmaksas pasta izdevumi!
Ok, tagad patiešām vēršu ciet Ebay, jo tā ietaupīšu sev pāris dolārus. Par laimi, man pa šo nedēļu ir iekrājušies pāris seriāli ko skatīties- Vampire Diaries, Modern Family, Awkward, Survivor ( baidījos tos to tulkot latviešu valodā! :D ). Šie ir mani šīs sezonas seriālu favorīti- kādi ir tavējie? :)

Sunny autumn day

2
Hi!


I am finally showing you guys an outfit post in which you can actually see that I step out of my house ( the last two outfit posts that I published on my blog were indoor photo shoots). The weather today was really beautiful and relatively warm, therefore, in the break between my classes in University I persuaded my boyfriend to take some outfit pictures of me! :) I always hate asking him to take pictures of me as I know that he really dislikes the process of it ( I'll just put it this way- he definitely doesn't have a thing for photography), but most usually I have no one else to ask :/
