Lookbook August 2017

Hello everyone,

Today, I would like to share with you my recent go-to outfits. So, without any further ado, let’s get into it. Just before I start, I’m sorry that this post is rather short, but I’m currently in the process of packing for my trip to Dubrovnik and I had a bit of spare time to write this blog post.

Outfit no. I:

This simple outfit consists of a white T-shirt from Primark and a floral skirt from H&M.

The necklaces are from Primark.

Outfit no. II:

This one is not your typical summer outfit but I think it’s great for the British summer. The black T-shirt is from H&M and the super comfy trousers are from New Yorker. The faux fur waistcoat is from Pull&Bear.

The necklace is from Primark.

Outfit no. III:

This one is my absolute favourite, although this summer hasn’t been nice to me enough so I can’t wear it as often as I would love to. Anyway, the white tank top is from Primark and the maxi skirt is from Forever 21.

To my disappointment, the flower headband from Forever 21, the best part of this outfit, can’t really be seen in the video (check out here), so here’s a better picture of this beauty.

The choker is from Primark.

Outfit no. IV:

The last outfit consists of this burgundy crop top from New Look and high-waisted jeans from Tally Weijl.

The necklaces are from Primark.

Both of the bracelets and all of the rings, which you can spot in all of the outfits are from Pandora.

Once again, I’m sorry that this post is kind of short and straightforward. See you again soon!

In-Flight Travel Essentials

Hello everyone,

Today, I decided to write about what I can’t live without while traveling. Or more specifically what I can’t live without while travelling on short flights because later this week I am flying to Dubrovnik, Croatia. So, let’s get into it.

Passport

This one is a given, right? Without a passport, you wouldn’t be able to travel anywhere, but I wanted to include it anyway because it’s just the travel essential number one.

Antibacterial Hand Gel

I am certainly one of those people obsessed with hygiene who can’t touch anything without cleaning their hands first, and well, it might be a problem while travelling and so this antibacterial hand gel by Zoella Beauty saves my life every time. What I especially like about this product is, that it doesn’t smell like your typical antibacterial gel. It has a lovely fresh flowery kind of scent.

Wet Wipes

Wet wipes sort of go in hand with the antibacterial hand gel. It doesn’t matter if you use them on your face or other body parts, they just come handy.

FullSizeRender3

Lip Balm

To be honest, I can’t exist without a good lip balm in general, so I thought I would include it in this list as well. Some lip balms tend to dry my lips out but this one from Nivea is excellent.

Chewing Gums

I’ve recently become an addict when it comes to chewing gums. Especially the sweet ones. For some reason, I don’t really like the usual peppermint chewing gums. I feel like the taste becomes pretty annoying after a while but these mango and lime ones from M&S are my recent favourites.

FullSizeRender7

Snack

You never know when you get hungry and you also never know when you’ll be able to get some food while travelling. And to prevent eating something unhealthy it’s better to carry some snack with you. I like to have a protein bar for a snack but they usually have some dodgy ingredients so I opt for natural protein bars like this one from Pulsin.

FullSizeRender4

Empty Bottle

You can’t bring a bottle of liquid to the carry-on bag control, but you can carry an empty one. And it’s certainly cheaper to have an empty bottle and refill in later than buying a new drink on the airport.

FullSizeRender2

Sunglasses

I’m pretty sure it will be sunny in Croatia when I arrive there, so these will be pretty useful. I don’t know why, but I tend to forget about them, and that’s why they are on this list because I will probably pack my carry-on with this post.

FullSizeRender1

Headphones

I can’t travel without listening to music. I just can’t. I also listen to a quiet music while reading because when I read in public places I get distracted by other people’s chatter.

FullSizeRender5

Book

And, as hinted, a book. In this instance, A Game of Thrones. I finally decided to read the books as well after watching the TV series for about three times already.

And that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed it and see you soon! Also, don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel here.

P.S. Don’t forget your boarding pass, too!

What I Eat in a Day #1

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would do something different and something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time. Today I will share with you what I eat in a day. All of the meals are vegetarian and dairy-free. I am not dairy-free all the time but I’m trying to eliminate dairy products from my diet as much as possible and on this particular day I happened to accomplish that.

Just a small disclaimer, I’m not a dietitian, this is just me sharing my meals with you. Also, I don’t count my macros nor I have any idea whatsoever about the calorie content.

Breakfast

I can’t skip breakfast. I always wake up hungry. It might have something to do with the fact that I eat my dinner fairly early but about that later. I’ve recently been obsessed with this egg porridge. Yes, that’s a thing. I feel like I just need to say that I have pretty strong digestion so my body responds well to the oats but I know that some people might have a problem with them. If it’s your case, I would rather opt for overnight oats or simply stove cooked porridge.

IMG_4150
You will need:
 Banana
 Egg
 Flax seeds
 Oats
Mash the banana, add the egg, flax seeds, and oats, mix the ingredients together and put in the microwave for about two minutes and you’re done! Sometimes I eat it without any toppings but for the sake of this post, I decided to add some natural peanut butter and blueberries. I also like to drink a cup of green tea with my breakfast. And the best thing about this porridge is that it keeps me full forever. Or at least until lunch.

Lunch

Well, since the breakfast is really filling I usually have just a light lunch. Today, I decided to have a sort of scrambled eggs.

IMG_4153
You will need:
 Eggs
 Kale
 Tomatoes
 Mushrooms
Cut the tomatoes and mushrooms and fry them together with the eggs and kale on a pan as long as you like. I personally like it quite dry but I know some people like their scrambled eggs gooey.

Snack

If I have a snack I tend to opt for something light. Just like this bowl of natural peanut butter and grapes.

IMG_4152

Dinner

As I indicated before, I tend to eat my dinner quite early. Usually around 6PM. Today I decided to cook lentils with some vegetables. I chose red lentils because I like the taste better but it’s up to you. Likewise, with the beans. You can use any kind of beans of your choice. I used red kidney beans.

IMG_4151
You will need:
 Lentils
 Kale
 Tomatoes
 Green peas
 Cucumber
 Beans
 Hummus
Cook the lentils together with the kale and tomatoes in a pot. I don’t really know how long should it take because the packaging of my lentils says “simmer for twenty minutes” but it only takes about five minutes. Nevertheless, when the lentils are done, add the peas, cucumber, and beans into the mixture and for some reason, I like to add a bit of hummus on top. I’m just obsessed with hummus.

So, I guess that’s it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed it and don’t forget to check out the video version on my YouTube channel here.

Lookbook Summer 2017

Hello everyone,

I feel like I haven’t done a lookbook post in such a long time. Probably because I haven’t. So, let’s just get into it.

Look no. I

FullSizeRender4
I wear a burgundy off-shoulder blouse from New Look, a black faux leather skirt from Tally Weijl and chain necklaces from Primark.

Look no. II

FullSizeRender3
Here I wear a white blouse with lace embellishments from Tally Weijl, a floral skirt, and bracelets from H&M.

Look no. III

FullSizeRender2
This one is probably my favourite, and well, to be honest, the most impractical one as well. But who cares? The burgundy dress T-shirt is from Bershka and the thigh high boots are from New Look. The necklace is from Primark.

Look no. IV

FullSizeRender
The most casual of the outfits consists of a grey short sleeve T-shirt from River Island and a vintage style skirt from Forever 21. The chokers are from Primark.

P.S. Todays is the magical day when I launched my YouTube channel which means that you can watch this lookbook on a video here and see the details which the camera couldn’t depict in the photos because even though I took the pictures on my iPhone 6 plus it still looks like it was photographed with a potato, lol.

I hope you enjoyed the post and perhaps even the video and see you soon.
