Who could even guess that these pictures were taken just a week ago when snow was even mor than knee high in several places! Right now there is practically no sign that a week ago we were deep in winter! But, of course, it surely doesn't mean that I will not publish these pictures as it is another chance to see how beautiful the winter nature is!

Friday Ebay bargains #109

Marble Iphone case Ebay bargains
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 

Marble has never been as trendy as it is right now - starting from real marble counter tops and decorative elements, to accessories and even marble print clothing! Marble is know for it's elegance and expensiveness, therefore, no wonder why marble was a huge hit in 2015 and no doubt it will be even a huger hit in 2016! In today's Ebay bargains article I've included an Iphone case with a marble print - the biggest plus is the fact that you don't need a thick wallet to afford it as it only costs five and a half dollars! I will surely try to find this one or a similar case for my Samsung Galaxy S4 as I am completely smitten by the marble trend! :)
Do you like this trend?

Marmors vēl nekad nav bijis tik trendīgs kā tas ir pašlaik - sākot no īstām marmora virsmām interjerā, dekoratīvajiem elementiem, aksesuāriem un pat marmora apdrukām apģērbos! Marmors izstaro izsmalcinātību un dārgumu līdz ar to neapšaubāmi kļuva par vienu no pagājušā gada trendiem, kas noteikti vēl tikai pieņemsies stiprumā un apmēros arī 2016. gadā! Šajā Ebay apskatā esmu iekļāvusi Iphone vāciņu ar marmora izskata apdruku un nav nemaz nepieciešams biezs maciņš, lai tādu iegādātos, jo tas maksā vien piecarpus dolārus! Noteikti šādu vai līdzīgu centīšos atrast arī savam Samsung Galaxy S4, jo marmora trends noteikti ir mani savaldzinājis! :)
Vai marmors ir savaldzinājis arī Tevi? :)

Makeup look: Purple smokey eye

Purple smokey eye makeup
Purple all of a sudden is one of my favorite recent colors, especially when it comes to makeup! Previously I hadn't even noticed how many gorgeous shades purple has and, therefore, in today's article I have created an interesting smokey eye makeup with this beautiful color! I think that this is a great alternative to the classic smokey eye which mostly consists of white, grey and black. And as January is coming to an end, I wanted to bring more color in my life! :)

Custom fit skirt

Latvian street style
Cold winter style
Never in my life I have appreciated custom tailored piece of clothing as I did after receiving an amazing custom fit skirt from a new brand called Rita and Phill.

Friday Ebay bargains #108

As 55 out of 72 votes were in favor for me to continue making weekly Ebay bargains, I surely listened to your opinion and, therefore, today I created an interesting blog post with which to start off the 2016 series of Ebay bargains! Jewelry organizers! Ever since December when me and my boyfriend moved into our new apartment, I have been paying a lot of attention to home decor! I do have a lot of jewelry and I feel like I have no place to put all the necklaces, bracelets and earrings, therefore, today I am sharing with you some Ebay bargains that I myself would love to have ( and most probably I'll end up buying a few). Jewelry organizers are not only functional and easy to use, but also a great decor for your room! I think that beautifully organized jewelry is a stellar piece that will surely enliven an empty table or shelf. For example, I have a clothing rack in my blog room which not only is great for storing clothes, but also looks organic and stylish! I believe it's the same with jewelry organizers!
How do you organize/store your jewelry?

Tā kā veselas 55 no 72 balsīm bija par labu Ebay rakstu turpināšanai, tad noteikti ieklausījos jūsu viedoklī un šodien esmu sagatavojusi visai interesantu rakstu ar kuru aizsākt 2016. gada Ebay rakstu sēriju! Rotas lietu uzglabātāji! Kopš decembra beigās kopā ar draugu ievācāmies savā jaunajā dzīvoklī es pastiprinātu uzmanību pievēršu dažādām mājas dekora lietām. Man par laimi vai nelaimi ir ļoti daudz rotas lietu un tieši pēc pārvākšanās es izjūtu ļoti lielu rotas lietu uzglabātāju trūkumu ( pašlaik visas kakla rotas, rokas sprādzes ir saliktas atvilktnēs, kas gluži nav tas efektīvākais uzglabāšanas veids). Tāpēc šodien vēlējos ar jums padalīties ar saviem atradumiem Ebay dzīlēs, kas dažādu rotas lietu uzglabāšanu padarītu daudz reiz ērtāku, funkcionālāku, pārskatāmāku un arī vizuāli baudāmāku. Kāpēc vizuāli baudāmāku? Tāpēc, ka skaisti izkārtotas rotas lietas var kļūt par patiešām lielisku istabas dekoratīvo elementu! Piemēram, man istabā stāv drēbju statīvs un tas lieliski kalpo ne tikai kā funkcionāla mēbele, bet arī piešķir istabai dzīvīgumu, krāsas un arī stilu! Ticu ka tāpat būtu arī ar šajā kolāžā atainotajiem priekšmetiem!
Kā Tu uzglabā savas rotas lietas?

I'm loving Kate Spade

Kate Spade favorites
Kate Spade is a designer I have been loving right from the moment I discovered this brand! I love the fact that the brand not only offers the classic staples - clothing, but also accessories, jewelry, watches, home decor and even children apparel!

Makeup look: Double wing it

Bright pink lipstick makeup look
Today I have prepared a makeup look in which the main focus is on the eyes and on the lips! With the help of a Maybelline gel eye liner I created a really interesting, but at the same time a very simple eye makeup - instead of one wing, I drew two of them! I must say that at the start it was challenging ( sometimes even I suck at drawing a one wing eye liner look) and I did have to go through a trial and error phase, but you know that practice makes perfect, right? :) I think that the double wing thing makes the makeup look much more playful, interesting and youthful.

TOP 10 outfits of 2015

Fashion blogger TOP 10 outfits
The year of 2015 has been a tremendous year of fashion and I can't believe that it's already more than half of January and I still haven't posted my TOP 10 looks of 2015! Therefore, today I have collected the most popular outfits of 2015 by analyzing the blog post statistics, amount of comments, social media and lookbook feedback! I am super happy to see that most of the outfits that were your favorites were actually my favorites as well! :) I think that in 2015 my style has evolved and stabilized. More or less I have kept my outfits casual and worn more colorful colors in summer, whereas more darker shades in the cooler months! I am very excited to see what will bring the year of 2016! 
Which outfit you liked the most?

Best Ebay bargains of 2015 - bags

Best bags of Ebay in 2015
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 

Today I have prepared the last summary of Best Ebay bargains of 2015 and it is all about bags! My favorite Ebay bargain of 2015 in the bag department is certainly the bag nr. 7 as it is in the trendy spring 2016 color - pastel! I think that the bag is spacious and I would be able to fit in there all my daily necessities and not only, plus I really like the design and the side zipper ( I wonder whether it is an extra pocket?). A close second is the unicorn bag - totally adorable, yet very stylish at the same time! :)
If you have missed any summaries of Best Ebay bargains of 2015, then here are the clothes, accessories and shoes!

Šodien ir pienākusi pēdējā kārta Ebay 2015. gada apkopojumiem un tās ir somiņas! Mana 2015. gada favorītsomiņa ir nr. 7, jo tā ir tik ļoti aktuālajā 2016. gada pavasara krāsu  tonī - pastelī! Somiņa, manuprāt, ir pietiekoši liela, lai tajā varētu satilpināt visus ikdienas niekus un ne tikai, kā arī mani ļoti piesaistīja tās dizains un sānu rāvējslēdzējs ( interesanti vai tur ir papildus kabata?). Otrajā vietā starp favorītiem ir vienradža somiņa - tik stilīga un tajā pat laikā arī mīlīga! :)
Ja nu esi nokavējis šeit ir apkopojumi 2015. gada labākajām drēbēm, aksesuāriem un kurpēm Ebay.

Best Ebay bargains of 2015 - Shoes

Best Ebay shoes of 2015
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 

Today I have collected the best Ebay bargains of 2015 in shoes department! Throughout the year in these blog posts you were able to find so many different styles and types of shoes, ranging from simple flats to fancy high heels and even sporty sneakers! I, myself, very rarely order shoes from Ebay because it's kind of hard to overcome the stereotype that it's tricky to order shoes online! Though, I've been gaining experience and lately all pairs of shoes that I had ordered have been in the perfect size! They have not been either too small or too big, I guess practice, as in experience, makes it perfect! :)
Do you order shoes online? What has been your experience, for example, with Ebay?
I will also remind you that this is the last week in which you can express your opinion ( either in the poll or in comments down below) whether I should continue making these weekly Ebay bargains posts in 2016 as well! I will really appreciate your opinion in this matter as I want to make this blog an interesting place to visit and read! Thank you! :)

Šodien ir pienākusi kārta apkopot labākos kurpju pārus Ebay 2015. gadā! Kurpes manos Ebay bargains rakstos ir bijušas tik raibas kā dzeņa vēders - sākot no "laiviņkurpēm", modīgām augstpapēžkurpēm līdz pat sportiskām kedām un botām! Pati no Ebay kurpes pasūtu ļoti retu, jo ir grūti tikt pāri tam stereotipam, ka internetā ir praktiski neiespējami iegādāties kurpes. Bet ar katru reizi aizvien labāk "piešaujos" un izdodas veiksmīgi atrast kurpju pāri īstajā izmērā, kas nespiež vai tieši otrādi, kurā kāja nešļūkā! Kāda ir Tava pieredze perfektā kurpju pāra atrašanā internetā?
Kā arī vēl atgādināšu, ka šonedēļ vēl ir iespējams nobalsot par to vai man turpināt rakstīt bloga ierakstus saistībā ar Ebay! Ļoti novērtēšu Tavu viedokli, jo gribas, lai manā blogā Tev ir pēc iespējas interesantāk! Paldies :)

Welcome to winter wonderland

What to wear in winter
Latvian fashion blogger
I think that snow makes the outfit pictures that much more beautiful and just creates this magical feeling about them, plus, it's no secret that outfits do stand out more in front of a white background! These outfit pictures were taken in a forest near to my apartment ( thanks to my cousin for helping me out) in a day when the big cold was finally fading away and it was "only" -13C outside ( we have had days when the temperature was below -25C!).

Makeup look: Azure coast

Latvian beauty blogger
When a new year starts I automatically assume that spring is just around the corner, but as I am looking outside the window right now, I understand that it couldn't be even further from the truth! We have piles and piles of snow and we are expecting a blizzard tonight! But even though I am physically in winter, my  mind is already set on spring, therefore, todays makeup look is in colorful and bright colors - main colors are blue and peachy.

Yesterday you had the chance to look at some of the "Best Ebay bargains of 2015 - clothes", whereas today I have collected some of the best accessories!

Vakardien jums bija iespēja aplūkot labākos Ebay drēbju atradumus, jeb "Best Ebay bargains of 2015 - clothes", savukārt, šodien es esmu apkopojusi 14, manuprāt, veiksmīgākos un labākos atradumus tieši aksesuāru sadaļā! Aksesuāri ir viena no tām lietām, kuru Ebay pati pērku visbiežāk, jo cenas ir patiešām  ļoti, ļoti draudzīgas! Visbiežākie mani pirkumi ir tieši pulksteņi, it sevišķi no Geneva sērijas. 
Neaizmirsti nobalsot, vai arī atstāt komentāru par to vai man arī 2016. gadā turpināt Ebay rakstu sēriju!

Best Ebay bargains of 2015 - clothes

Best clothes on Ebay 2015
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9
I know, I know that I have missed out on Ebay bargains for three whole weeks - it's just the craziness of the holidays ( Christmas and NYE) kind of made it impossible to get in the regular routine + I did take off three days of my second job, which is blogging and that also explains the gap. But I really didn't want to miss out on the tradition that I have been doing for two years already, therefore I decided to publish the best Ebay bargains of 2015. Today is all about clothes, tomorrow will be all about accessories, whereas the next week will be about shoes and bags. 
As I've been creating these kind of posts for two and a half years and a new year has started, I wanted to find out your opinion whether I should continue making these Ebay bargain posts on a weekly basis? I've been checking the statistics of my blog posts and the Ebay posts are always the ones which get the least amount of views and comments, therefore, I'd very appreciate if you would voice your opinion in the comment section or in the poll I created down below! Kind thanks in advance! J

Zinu, jau zinu, ka Ebay raksti ir iztrūkuši veselas 3 nedēļas – bet tā kā biju svētku dullums un trakums un biju paņēmusi arī pāris brīvas dienas no mana otrā darba – blogošanas, tad sanāca tā, ka šie raksti izpalika. Bet noteikti nevēlējos izlaist tradīciju ko piekopu jau divus iepriekšējos gadus – janvāra sākumā apkopot labākās un izdevīgākās Ebay pērles. Šodien esmu apkopojusi labāko apģērbu atradumus, rīt būs kārta aksesuāriem, savukārt nākamnedēļ tie būs apavi un somas.
Tā kā Ebay atradumu rakstu jau divarpus gadus un ir sācies jauns gads tad es vēlējos noskaidrot jūsu viedokli par to vai man turpināt šo rakstu sēriju, jo pēc statistikas datiem esmu ievērojusi, ka šie raksti ir vieni no vismazāk lasītajiem, kā arī komentētajiem. Tāpēc es ļoti novērtēšu to, ka vai nu nobalsosi apakšā esošajā aptaujas rīkā, vai arī atstāsi komentāru šajā rakstā! Mīļš paldies jau iepriekš! J
