hm-quiz-clothing-sale-favorites
It is again this time of the year when summer sales are start to grow bigger and bigger and there are more and more shops in which you can spot the red stickers, posters and other eye catching attractions! Therefore, today I wanted to share with you some of my sale favorites from two of my favorite clothing brands H&M and Quiz Clothing! I have already made some purchases at H&M stores in Latvia and also in Quiz Clothing's Internet store!

Midsummer in pictures

Midsummer also known as St. John's day, Summer Solstice is a feast celebrated in many European countries- in some countries more, in some less. In Latvia Midsummer is celebrated very widely, 23d and 24th June are National holidays in which a lot of people go to the countryside and celebrate Midsummer together with family or friends!

Today I have a little bit different Ebay bargains post prepared for you- instead of showing you a collage of different Ebay products, I decided to make an article where fashion bloggers all over the world have styled clothing and accessories that can be found on Ebay ( or very, very similar items!), It is not a secret that fashion bloggers gain a lot of inspiration from same minded individuals ( well, at least I can surely talk for myself), therefore, I decided to create a post with outfits that have inspired me over the time and to my surprise that have also been very affordable! From the items I have mentioned above I own the rose mesh sweater, tulle skirt, white lace blouse and the watch necklace! And, honestly, I have had those items for at least more than a year and I only have the best things to say about them! Definitely let me know whether you would like to see more Ebay bargains posts like this in the future!

Šodien man priekš Jums ir padomā nedaudz neierastāks "Friday Ebay bargains" raksts- tā vietā, lai kā ierasts Jums parādītu apkopotu produktu kolāžu, es izveidoju rakstu, kurā Ebay atrodamās lietas ir iespējams atrast mugurā modes blogeriem visapkārt pasaulei! Nav noslēpums, ka modes blogeri ļoti daudz iedvesmas gūst tieši no citiem modes blogeriem, vismaz to apgalvot pavisam noteikti varu pēc savas personiskās pieredzes, līdz ar to šajā rakstā esmu apkopojusi dažus tērpus, kas mani laika gaitā ir iedvesmojuši un par pārsteigumu ir bijuši arī visai pieejami ( par pieņemamām cenām), jo ļoti daudzas lietas, kuras ir iekļautas šajos tērpos ( vai arī ļoti, ļoti līdzīgas) ir iespējams iegādāties Ebay'ā! No šajā rakstā minētajām lietām man pašai ir džemperis ar rozēm, tilla svārki, baltā mežģīņu blūze kā arī pulkstenis-kaklarota! Noteikti dariet man zināmu to vai Jūs vēlētos redzēt līdzīgus Ebay rakstus nākotnē!

The first month of summer is slowly coming to an end, I cannot even believe the fact that Midsummer feast has already passed!
The weather hasn't been very kind on us, it surely doesn't feel like summer and there are not many days when the temperature is over 20 degrees by Celsius! Hopefully we will be able to enjoy better and sunnier weather in July!
Since it is already the end of June I decided to look back last years June as I did in May when I compiled together best blog posts from May 2014! I hope you'll enjoy this post and the whole series for this matter and that you'll find some blog posts that you have missed or never read!

White summer roses

I had these pictures on my computer for a while now, but I never had the opportunity to actually publish them! Pictures were taken a little while ago, when the bush roses were still in full bloom- their scent is really mesmerizing! I definitely want to plant bush roses in my summer house’s garden so that I could enjoy their beauty not only when I pass them by on the street!

My graduation

Those of you who follow me on social media such as Instagram and Twitter might have noticed the fact that I graduated University this Friday!

Friday Ebay bargains #85 Brushes

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 //

As in my previous Ebay post a lot of you seemed to show a lot of interest about makeup brushes ( judged by the comments and clicks on the link), this week I decided collect together all my favorite brushes that I have found Ebay which was actually a hard task since the makeup brush assortment on Ebay seems to be endless! In this article I tried to include a wide variety of brushes that are available on Ebay, for example, I included sets from only 4 brushes, to a set with 32 brushes as well as eye shadow blending brushes to foundation and powder brushes! I think you already recognize set number 9 as I reviewed it in this blog post!
I hope you found this article useful and interesting and I do want to apologize for the inconsistency in my blogging because, even though, I quit my job, this week was very busy because my relatives from USA came to visit and I tried to be a really great hostess and show them the most beautiful places in Latvia! But I do promise to return to my old blogging habits which means at least 4 blog posts per week because I have so many pictures to show you and I have so many blog post ideas which I cannot wait to share with you!

Tā kā iepriekšējajā rakstā daudzi no Jums izrādīja interesi par kosmētikas otiņām ( spriedu gan pēc komentāru, gan arī izdarīto klikšķu skaita) šonedēļ es nolēmu apkopot tikai dažus no maniem mīļākajiem otiņu komplektiem, kurus ir iespējams iegādāties Ebay, jo, ja godīgi, tad, man liekas, ka iespēju dažādība ir patiešām neierobežota! Šajā rakstā centos iekļaut pēc iespējas vairākus veidus- gan komplektus, kas sastāv no dažām otiņām, gan arī komplektu ar 32 gab, kā arī otiņas, kas ir paredzētas acu ēnām, tonālajiem krēmiem un pūderiem utt. Ar devīto otiņu komplektu Jūs jau iespējams esiet pazīstami, ja esiet lasījuši šo rakstu ( klik!), kurā aplūkoju šīs otiņas tuvāk un izteicu par tām savu viedokli, jo tās lietoju jau vairākus mēnešus!
Ceru, ka raksts Jums likās interesants un noderīgs, kā arī atvainojos par maniem ne tik regulārajiem bloga ierakstiem- šonedēļ, kaut arī aizgāju no darba, biju ļoti, ļoti aizņemta, jo ciemos bija atbraukuši radinieki no Amerikas un likumsakarīgi lielāko daļu laika pavadīju iejūtoties gida ādā un parādot Latvijā skaistākās vietas! Bet apsolu, ka drīzumā, blogošana atgriezīsies vecajās sliedēs un cerams, ka nedēļā sanāks publicēt vismaz četrus rakstus, jo man ir iekrājušās ļoti daudz bildes kā arī bloga ierakstu idejas un nevaru sagaidīt, kad beidzot būs brīvāks brīdis, lai tās realizētu!

H&M Studio A/W 2015 collection preview

H&M-studio-aw-collection-2015

A little less than two weeks ago I had an exclusive opportunity to go to H&M's Showroom here in Riga and with my own eyes preview the fashion trends of this autumn and winter that will be offered by the fashion giant H&M!

Friday Ebay bargains #84

This week it is completely impossible to choose between all the items I have included in this blog post and name a favorite, because, honestly, I would love to own every single item that you can see in this collage! Though, I have to add the fact that I have always wanted a Yankee Midnight Jasmin candle and it has been in my wish list for such a long time! As summer for me mostly associates with the amazing scent of jasmins, this candle would be a perfect addition to the quiet and peaceful summer evenings! As much as I would love to buy it right now, there is only one thing that is stopping me- the price. I am not quite sure whether I want to spend about 20 dollars solely on a candle, though, I have read really great raving reviews about the quality and the heavenly scent! What is you summer scent?

Šonedēļ ir pilnīgi neiespējami izšķirties starp visām šajā rastā redzamajām lietām un pateikt, kura ir mīļākā, jo pati labprāt savā garderobē redzētu pilnīgu visu kolāžā iekļauto! Jāpiemin, vien tas, ka manā vēlmju sarakstā Yankee Midnight Jasmin svece ir jau ļoti ilgu laiku un tā kā vasara man noteikti asociējas ar reibinošo jasmīnu smaržu, ļoti, ļoti vēlos iegādāties šo aromātisko sveci! Vienīgais, kas mani pašlaik nedaudz attur ir tās cena- uzskatu, ka priekš sveces tā ir diezgan augsta! Jāpiebilst vienīgi tas, ka šīs sveces ir patiešām kvalitatīvas un smaržo patiešām debešķīgi ( nu cik nu varu spriest pēc vētraini labajām atsauksmēm internetā un ne tikai!)! Kāda ir Tava vasaras smarža?

New in: Sports top & shorts

sportswear-for-summer
I congratulate you with the start of the summer, well at least, I can say that to Latvians, because the weather in the last weekend was amazing! Sadly, I didn't get the chance to enjoy the warm weather to the fullest as I was working the whole weekend and with a tiny bit of jealousy looking at my friend's pictures on social media of how amazing their weekend was! But as I have already mentioned it in one of my previous blog posts, 14th of June is my last day of work at H&M! I will start looking for a new job at the end of the summer or at the start of autumn, but meanwhile I will try to enjoy an amazing summer which will be free of stress about University ( I am graduating in less than two weeks) and work! :)

Even though I am extremely tired and worn out, but at the same I am more happy than ever, I still decided to not to miss out on this week's Ebay bargains post and show some of my favorite recent favorites! This day started at 6.45 am when I woke up with a little tremble in my heart; while getting ready repeated my presentation and almost skipped breakfast ( though I did eat a small package of yogurt after all) and went to the University! There I spent almost 4 hours and listened to other Bachelor Thesis presentations and finally gave my own presentation! I did spend most time of these 4 hours stressing and freaking out about the fact that I'll most probably forget my speech and will end up staring at the comittee as a deer in headlights! Nevertheless, almost everything went smoothly ( except for one tricky question from the representative of the committee) and I received a really, really good mark and I am very proud of it! I really cannot stress enough the feeling of relief I am experiencing right now, I, honestly, cannot believe that I will graduate from University in less than two weeks!
After the four stressful hours me and my boyfriend ( who also successfully gave presentation about his Thesis) went out to eat and drink a bit to celebrate this amazing occasion! After that, I gladly went to H&M's Showroom here in Riga where I had the privilege to preview the upcoming H&M A/W 2015 Studio collection and just have an inside scoop of what we can expect in the fashion industry this September! I will not get into many more details as as per usual I am planning on making a separate blog post about the collection in the nearest future!
Anyways, I really hope you have found something in this Ebay bargain post that you have liked, I, personally, am totally in love with this top, as I think it will fit perfectly in this summer and summer style! The only thing I have to do this evening is to grab another glass of champagne, watch the latest Vampire Diaries episode as I still have no idea what will happen to Elena and just purely enjoy life and everything I have reached up to this point! Cheers! :)

Kaut arī esmu neticami un vienkārši neiespējami sagurusi pēc garās un nogurdinošās dienas, bet tajā pat laikā jāpiemin arī lieliskās dienas, saņēmu sevi rokās un nosolījos neizlaist šīs piektdienas Ebay bargains rakstu! Šī diena sākās pulksten 6.45, kad arī nedaudz trīcošu sirdi izvēlos no gultas, uzkrāsojis un apģērbos pie reizes galvā atkārtojot savu aizstāvēšanas runu un devos uz Universitāti ( vienīgais, ko vien varēju sevi piespiest apēst bija mazais putu krējumu jogurtiņš!). Universitātē kopumā pavadīju aptuveni 4 stundas no kurām lielāko daļu pavadīju stresojot par to, ka noteikti neatcerēšos nevienu vārdu no savas prezentācijas auditorijas un komisijas priekšā, bet lai nu kā man gāja- esmu oficiāli nokārtojusi visas saistības ar LU, kā arī ļoti sekmīgi aizstāvējusi savu Bakalaura darbu!! :) Tiešām nevaru aprakstīt to fantastisko atvieglojuma sajūtu, kad apzinos, ka esmu tikusi galā ar vienu ļoti nozīmīgu un piebildīšu, ka arī nedaudz mokošu dzīves posmu- pirmo augstāko izglītību! :)
Pēc darba prezentācijas kopā ar draugu ( kurš starp citu arī aizstāvēja savu darbu tajā pašā dienā, kurā es) devāmies uz Vecrīgu paēst un nedaudz atzīmēt šo nozīmīgo notikumu! Pēc tam ar prieku devos uz H&M Šovrūmu, kurā man bija priviliģēta iespēja piedalīties H&M A/W 2015 Studio kolekcijas prezentācijā un aplūkot to, kas tad mūs sagaidīs H&M veikalos šajā rudenī! Dziļākās detaļās es gan neieslīgšu- vairāk par šo pasākumu varēsiet lasīt kādā no maniem nākotnes bloga ierakstiem! 
Lai nu kā, es ceru, ka šajā Ebay bargains rakstā atradīsiet kaut ko, kas būs jūsu sirsniņa tuvāks, man personīgi ļoti iepatikās šis tops, uzskatu, ka tas iederēsies un izskatīsies vienkārši lieliski šajā vasarā, kas cerams būs karsta un saulaina! Šovakar man atliek vien ieliet vēl vienu šampanieša glāzi un noskatīties pēdējo Vampire Diaries sēriju, kuru esmu iekavējusi jau vairākas nedēļas un, ja godīgi, tad vienkārši svinēt dzīvi un priecāties par sasniegto! Priekā! :)

Casual spring / summer outfit

lace-see-through-blouse-ebay
call-me-maddie-fashion-blog
My last couple of outfits have been kind of dressy- dresses, skirts, fancy tops, but in reality there is also another side of my style, which is more laid back and casual! This outfit is a truly great example of how I like to dress in my everyday life when I am running errands, working or going to the University. Of course, don't get me wrong-  I still have my "fancy" days when I like to dress up and wear skirt or dresses, but for most of the time you will definitely spot me in denim jeans!
