Lanzarote | Summer midi skirt

Hot summer day outfit
Summer outfit
You might already remember this skirt from one of the outfits I posted not so long ago.. Back then I was wearing it in a dark combination since it was only the start of the warm spring days, well, today I have prepared a very summery combination together with white sandals and denim jacket.

TGIF! Fridays are certainly my favorite days and I looove the fact that I have not planned anything for the evening. I might be getting old, but I seriously get excited when I can just chill at home with my boyfriend, grab a glass of wine and catch up on some tv shows that I have missed throughout the week! What are your plans for today and for the weekend? :)

TGIF! Piektdienas noteikti ir manas mīļākās nedēļas dienas un ir tik forši, ka šim vakaram neesmu ieplānojusi tieši neko :). Iespējams kļūstu veca vai kā, bet tā doma, ka šodien varēšu mierīgi atpūsties mājās kopā ar draugu, iedzert glāzi vīna un noskatītos to seriālu sērijas, kuras nesanāca pa nedēļu, man liek plaši, jo plaši pasmaidīt! Kādi ir Tavi plāni šodienai, nedēļas nogalei? :)

Sportswear outfit with 4F

Workout clothing
Latvian fashion blogger
Being the brand ambassador of 4F this is my uniform, and, wow, I surely didn't expect it to love it as much as I really do! :) I think that workout clothes should be bright and cheerful in order to motivate you to get your lazy ass up from the pc and workout a bit (even 10~15 minutes a day will do)!

Makeup look I Graphic games with Oriflame

Oriflame eyeliner makeup look
According to Oriflame and it's experts three makeup trends will be dominating this spring/summer. And those three trends are: ROAD TO MOROCCO, GRAPHIC GAMES, THE NEW SAILOR STYLE.

Fuerteventura I Corralejo brights

Call me Maddie
After the Lanzarote winds, Fuerteventura surely seemed like a safe haven, which is actually quite paradoxical since Fuerteventura's literal translation from spanish language is "strong winds".

Friday Ebay bargains #118

I can clearly remember the first time I opened Ebay and realized that I am completely lost and don't understand anything, like literally anything. I closed the Ebay tab quite soon and decided to return to this page when I would have more time and ability to explore it from a to z. A few months passed and I did dedicate a whole evening to understanding Ebay and everything it has to offer - honestly, I was still very stunned by how much different things, variations, colors and designs there are. Jewelry was certainly something that spoke to me first as there is a huge assortment and prices are ridiculously friendly. Therefore, in today's blog post I have collected together only the tiniest part of what you can find on Ebay. I hope that this blog post will help those who are newbies when it comes to shopping on Ebay and that you'll find something you like/useful :)
From the items mentioned in this collage I own the earrings, necklace and a bracelet - I am very satisfied with each item, especially the earrings!

Pirmo reizi atverot Ebay biju neaptverami pārsteigta par to cik lieeeeeela bija rotas lietu izvēle - apmulsums bija tik  milzīgs, ka pēc tam vēl kādus dažus mēnešus Ebay vēl vienam apmeklējam ļoti ilgi dvesmojos, jo biju nolēmusi izzināt šo sistēmu no a-z un atrast visērtāko veidu kā visvieglāk atrast sev kārotās lietas par pēc iespējas zemākām naudiņām. Rotas noteikti bija pašas pirmās lietas, kuras iegādājos, jo izvēle kā jau minēju ir milzīga un cenas ir ļoti, ļoti, ļoti draudzīgas. Tāpēc šodien izveidoju šo rakstu, kurā esmu apkopojusi pavisam niecīgu daļiņu no tā, kuru var atrast Ebay plašumos. Iespējams kādai no jums tas varēs palīdzēt un neapjukt lielajā rotas lietu piedāvājumā. :)
No šeit apkopotajām lietām man pašai ir šie auskari, šī kaklarota un šī rokassprādze - ļoti apmierināta esmu ar visiem, it sevišķi ar auskariem!

Kinetics RioRio collection sunset inspired manicure

Rio de Janeiro type of party
The brand Kinetics has come out with a really great collection of nail polishes called "RioRio" that is inspired by this year's Olympic games main city the colorful Rio de Janeiro! Ain't that awesome? The summers here in Latvia aren't always the most vivid or colorful ones, therefore, a bright nail polish is exactly what is needed to make those cloudy spring and summer days filled with color!

Brand ambassador - let's get acquainted with 4F

4F brand ambassador
Vienā ļoti noslogotā marta darba dienas pēcpusdienā saņēmu epastu, kas man lika pasmaidīt no vienas auss līdz otrai burtiski sekunžu laikā. Ar mani sazinājās PR aģentūra un piedāvāja iespēju kļūt par sporta apģērbu un aksesuāru zīmola 4F vēstnesi (brand ambassador). Tiešām jutos ļoti pagodināta un ļoti, ļoti priecīga, jo, ja godīgi tad Latvijā blogerus par zīmola vēstnešiem izvēlas ļoti reti vai neizvēlas vispār un tas, ka mani ir izvēlējies uzņēmums, kurš aicina cilvēkus pievērsties aktīvam un veselīgam dzīvesveidam noteikti mani iepriecināja vēl vairāk!

Šoreiz daudz nerakstīšu, jo ir jau 4. aprīļa vakars un pēc aptuveni 10h stundām es izlidoju uz Kanāriju salām (kā jau vari noprast šis ir ieplānots raksts). Neesmu vēl pabeigusi kārtot ceļa somu, tāpēc pagaidām čau un noteikti komentāru sadaļā uzraksti, kurš Ebay atradums šonedēļ Tev patika vislabāk! TTYL!

Swimsuit spring 2016 favorites

Swimsuit favorites of spring 2016
As right now I am still in the sunny Canary islands, I decided to create a blig post all about the coolest swimwear you can find on the internet right now! I have noticed that lately I've been really digging the high waisted swimsuits as they look so cool, yet classy!
Have you already started preparing for the summer season? Where do you usually buy swimwear?

Makeup look: The colorful rainbow

Colorful makeup look
This is actually one of the first makeup looks that I created with one of the newest additions to my makeup table - the Morphe Brushes 35B eyeshadow palette. As back then I was only playing with it and testing it out, I decided to create a makeup look that used the maximums amount of different colours to see how the palette works, how good quality are the eye shadows in different colours and how I would continue working with it in the future.

It is almost middle of spring and we surely have to start thinking about those sunny days when we will  have to protect our eyes from the bright sun. And, of course, not everybody has enough money to buy those fancy designer sunglasses, therefore, as right now I am in the sunny Canary islands, I have prepared a blog post dedicated to sunglasses you can find on Ebay. And what is the best feature about them? Their price! My faves from the above mentioned have to be nr.2 as they have that cool marmor print in the frame! Have you prepared for the sunny spring/summer sunny days?

Pavasaris jau ir tūliņ pusē un noteikti ir jāsāk aktīvi domāt par to kā saulainajās dienās mēs pasargāsim savas acis no spožās saules gaismas. Ne visiem ir iespēja iegādāties skaistas dizaineru saulesbrilles, tāpēc par godu tam, ka pašlaik atrodos saulainajās Kanāriju salās, esmu apkopojusi saulesbrilles, kuras ir iespējams atrast Ebay'ā par ļoti draudzīgām cenām. Manas favorītes, laikam, ir saulesbrilles nr. 2, jo tām ir mans iemīļotais marmora raksts briļļu rāmītī! Vai Tu jau esi sagatavojusies saulainajām pavasara/vasaras dienām?

Riga fashion week outfit
Today I would like to share with you an outfit I wore to Riga Fashion week Maybelline Make it Happen day. The main accent of this outfit, without any doubt is the beautiful, feminine floral print skirt, that I bought last week at H&M!

On Friday I had a really amazing opportunity to go to H&M Showroom in Riga and preview the newest Conscious Exlusive line by H&M. And, oh boy - it is so, so good!

Friday Ebay bargains #115

I know that for two consecutive weeks I have not written my Friday Ebay bargains posts and, well, my only excuse is that "life just got in the way", because lately I am constantly running out of time and sadly my most used phrase is "I don't have time for that" or "later". Honestly, it is horrible to live with a state of mind that you can't actually manage to do everything you've planned  and lately I've been juggling way too many things on one plate, therefore, the end result is not as good as expected for either of them. In these past two to three weeks it just feels like life is just running by.  Of course, it is nice to know that next week I'm going on a vacation, but the week building up to it has been really tough and I, honestly, don't even want to imagine how it will be after I come back. Sadly I am that kind of a person who just can't let go of things, I over think, overstress and I know that I might not enjoy the vacation to the fullest as I worry too much. Do you have any advice how to overcome this stressful, a bit depressing mood I'm currently in? How do you deal with the fact that you might never have time to do everything and just zone out?
I know that my rant had nothing to do with this post, but then again I did want to let you know how I felt and that sometimes the life of a blogger is not all about rainbows and sunshine, especially if you have to balance a full time job, relationship, family and friends. Anyways, I really hope you liked the items I found on Ebay this week and that you found something useful and/or interesting!

Zinu, ka veselas divas nedēļas esmu izlaidusi manus iknedēļas Ebay atradumus, bet angļiem ir viens labs teiciens "life just got in the way", jeb pēdējā laikā patiešām dzīvoju konstantā laika trūkumā un uz gandrīz jebkuru lietu man ir atbilde - "nav laika" vai "vēlāk". Ir patiešām šausmīgi dzīvot ar šādu apziņu, ka nekam tā īsti līdz galam neatliek laika un, ka vairākas lietas sanāk darīt reizē rezultātā neiegūstot to rezultātu, ko es vēlētos. Nudien man ir tāda sajūta, ka es esmu iesprūdusi vāveres ritenī un, ka dzīve tā vienkārši paskrien garām. It kā jau forši, ka nākamnedēļ dodos atvaļinājumā un ceļojumā, bet tajā pat laikā pašlaik skrienu kā bez elpas, lai tikai paspētu uz visām pusēm, bet zinu, ka pēc atvaļinājuma būs vēl uz pusi grūtāk. Kā arī, diemžēl, esmu tāds cilvēks, kas nevar vienkārši atslēgties un baudīt, jo pusi no atvaļinājuma laiku pieļauju, ka pavadīšu domājot par to cik daudz būs jāizdara pēc atgriešanās. Varbūt Tev ir kāds padoms šajā jautājumā? Kā tikt galā ar laika trūkumu un kā atslēgties no visa un visiem? :)
Zinu, ka šis bija nedaudz off-topic no šī raksta patiesā mērķa, bet gribu, lai jūs ziniet, ka ne vienmēr blogeru dzīve ir skaista un rožaina, it sevišķi tad, ja tas vēl ir jāapvieno ar pilnas slodzes darbu, attiecībām, ģimeni un sociālo dzīvi! Lai nu kā - ceru, ka Tev patika šis ieraksts un ka šīs nedēļas Ebay atradumos atradi kaut ko noderīgu arī sev! 

~With love~
