Valentine’s Day – a few words about love

Valentine’s Day – a few words about love

In less than a few days is Valentine’s Day but love should always be celebrated! By the way, I wrote a little Valentine’s guide last year which you can read here.

Also, today is the 10th of February that happen to be the day that my boyfriend and I like to celebrate together. Therefore, I wanted to talk about my thoughts on love and self love.

Before we can understand love and show it to humans and animals, we have to learn to love ourselves and accept our flows. Life is too short to worry about some stretch marks and the shape of the body. Instead, we have to focus on becoming better humans.

Furthermore, we have to take time to pamper ourselves it’s like conditioner for the soul. If you know what I am talking about – haha! Once in a week I like to put on hydrating masks, do my nails, wax my body and whiten my teeth.

I was brought up very religious. And, the most important thing that I leaned until now is to show love to others and not to harm. That means don’t treat someone shitty if they choose to do that. Because actions like that have nothing to do with you. A person might be going through bad times. Always be kind and help others in need.

Lastly, I read the love book ‘the 5 love languages which I think everyone should read. Also, I recommend it to anyone not only to if you are in a relationship. I love how this book speaks about love languages. Because we humans have different ways of expressing love and if we learn each other’s love language. This can lead to a better relationship towards your partnership, friendship and to your family. Btw, the 5 love languages are:

  • Words of affirmation 
  • Acts of service 
  • Quality time
  • Physical touch
  • Receiving gifts 

For instance, I am a person who loves encouraging/kind words and compliments. In addition, your partner can prefer other love languages like physical touch. We learned each other’s language and we now unterstand ourselves and the other person much better.

I hope you like my little thoughts about love and my pictures with my pink roses.

These 90s baguette bags are back!

These 90s baguette bags are back!

The 90s bags are back and I love it.

Jey holding baguette bagJey holding baguette bagTopshop Pia Nylon Shoulder bagJey holding baguette bagSHOP THE LOOK: BAG  / JEANS / BOOTS

Guys, I’ve been wearing the heck out of my black little bag by Topshop. It is made of nylon and the quality is good. Also, Topshop has a few 90s inspired bags that I‘ll share later with you.

Mini bags come in different colors, materials and styles, the most known styles are:

The Baguette Bag – is a handbag that is designed by Fendi. Nowadays, every little brand copies their style. 

The Pochette bag – When I think about this style, what comes into my mind is the Pochette Accessoires bag by Louis Vuitton. Pochettes are large purses.

The Hobo bag -This style has a half mooned shape which comes in leather or other materials. A very famous mini hobo bag which I know is this one by Prada. Btw, I think the bag I am carrying is a mix of pochette & hobo.

Many designers like Fendi and Dior reintroduced their infamous mini bags from the 90s or created new ones. Therefore, the price at the resale market immediately went up. Now, I am sad that I didn’t buy the bags when they were cheap. Moreover, the brand By Far even designed a ‘Rachel bag’ that is a homage to the character Rachel of Sex and the Cities. I’m sure that you all know that 00s show!

What fits into the tiny baguette bags?

I always carry my important things like a card purse, hand creme, chapstick, hand sanitizers and my keys. If you like to write on the go, you can fit in a little notebook (A5) and a pen. I would say these are your most important things that fit into the bag.

How to style the It-bag

I like to carry my mini bag on my shoulder, especially when I wear an oversized cardigan or a long coat. Furthermore, these bags go well with minimalist outfits.

My 90s mini bag wishlist

Lastly, I wanted to include a few bags that I’ve been eyeing for quite some time. Some are new and many are vintage finds which you can find on eBay, Vestiaire Collection or on other sites that sell authentic goods as well. Btw, I added bags from designer to high street brands.

SHOP MY LOOK: dress // top // bag // boots

First of all, happy new year guys! I hope you enjoyed the two weeks of 2019 so far..

Sometimes, I am very bored with my winter closet. Because as you might know, I tend to go with the same ole’ jeans and a thick cardigan/knit. Also, I love wearing dresses and skirts in the warmer months. Therefore, I wanted to incorporate a summer piece and show you how I style it without freezing. Let’s be real, we don’t want to sacrifice our health for fashion. 🙂 By the way, this outfit can be worn to a romantic dinner because you will look cute and you are kept warm at the same time.

I bought this checked mini buttoned dress by Bershka in Vienna. Under the dress, I threw on a basic black longsleeved top which gives the look a 90s kind of vibe. Underneath the summer dress I didn’t wear tights, I opted for thick black leggings. I like wearing these instead of tights because I find them more comfortable and they also put some structure to your outfit. I finished the look off with my favorite edgy combat boots and thick grey socks to further ‘winterize’ the look – is that even a word? Haha!

Lastly, what is an outfit without a cool bag? I’ve been living in my mini 90s baguette bag which goes effortlessly with any look. Soon I’ll write a bit more about this baguette bag. So keep your eyes peeled!

See you in the next post!

Bye bye 2018

Bye bye 2018

SHOP MY LOOK: DRESS / SCARF / COAT / BAG/ BOOTS

*linked similar things because they’re sold out!

The days before and after Christmas are the busiest for me because I spent much time with family and my partner. Lastly, I have to run a few errands before the year is over.

Let’s summarize 2018 in 3 words: personal growth • creativity • struggle

This year was quite a roller coaster for me because the universe tested me a lot. I was about to give up on my dreams. Plus, I am quite a crybaby due to my water sign (my star sign is cancer if you haven’t known by now – haha). This year taught me to accept that things in life change and sometimes you have to take another direction to make it. Also, I made a promise to myself to be braver in my actions and not to care about other people’s opinions. Furthermore, I want to be more open to new opportunities. Thus, I am ready for the dark unknown paths of life. I am also emotionally and physically stronger because I am trying to leave my anxiety behind. My biggest weakness is overthinking and perfectionism. Therefore, as I’ve mentioned I want to take more action and ‘think less’. Lastly, I am really glad that I am taking my health more seriously and try to do sports at least twice a week.

Creativity is written big this year. I am improving my photography and my editing skills. I even started to edit short clips for Instagram. Reintroducing traditional art into my hobby was my biggest joy of the year. For me, it’s a form of meditation and therapy. And, I draw and paint as often as I can.

Something to be excited for in 2019

Finally, I will marry my best friend in summer and I will let y’all know where and when. By the way, Jan and I got engaged in beautiful Croatia in October 2017.

Now to the last words… I want to thank my family and friends for everything and I want to thank you for reading and liking my content ❤️ , it means a lot to me. Now, I am more confident in the things that I do as failure makes you stronger. All in all, I am satisfied with 2018 and I am so ready for the next lessons of 2019!

Maybe, you’ve noticed that I am not much of a haul hoarder and like to style the things I already have. Furthermore, I like to shop for things I need in my wardrobe and sometimes for trendy stuff. But this time I wanted to share with you my black blazer with animal prints that has been in my closet for many years. It is actually a gift from my mother. I have it since I was a kiddo and it is not a joke ;-)! Before that, I used to hate it due to the animal print and the overall shape. And now I am appreciating it.

This blazer is something I would wear to festivities like a fancy Christmas dinner. The collar of the jacket and the buttons feature the animal print, also it is of mid-length. Plus, it has its matching dress which has the same prints. By the way, I don’t know the brand of this blazer but the quality feels really good and it held up all these years. Unfortunately, I only linked 2 blazers that look quite similar like the one I have on.

Furthermore, I styled a pair of ankle cut blue jeans with the vintage piece which goes wonderfully well together. This outfit can be worn with white pumps or if you prefer the more edgy look you can style it with black combat boots. 

Do you have vintage pieces in your wardrobe that you see in a new way?
