SPRING in CHICAGO

Hello Loves and happy Tuesday!

Sorry for being absent for such a long time! I have a lot of things to care of these days and almost zero free time! Thank you for you patience and still hanging around. I’ll try to post as I used to, once a week (usually Monday or Tuesday). 

Today I’d like to share with you photos of my latest trip! Me and my boyfriend went to Chicago for a family reunion. Hope you’ll like the pictures I took of the city!

Hello Loves and happy Tuesday!

This week as promised I’m gonna answer all your questions and follow 5 of you who asked the most creative ones!

Let’s get to it, shall we?

I’m interested to know how your life has changed as your blog has gained momentum? A follow up question would be, is your reason/inspiration for blogging the same now as when you first started? – beauty0bellini

To be honest I feel like it didn’t change at all. Definitely the reason to keep blogging for me is the same. Just because it gives me joy! I’m so grateful so many of you are willing to share it with me and keep reading my posts. I’ve never thought about I could have 3000 people subscribed to my page! It’s insane! ❤

So as this milestone is goals for many fellow bloggers, I’d like to know: What are your tips in regard to expanding your blog following and engagement? Also, how do you get inspired to come up with new blog ideas? – FebruaryCircus

People ask me about the tips to grow a bigger audience all the time. Tbh I never had a plan. Just write about what you truly love. Pictures should be a good quality, that definitely catch an eye. And the last tip would be stay present and connected with the community. About inspiration I’d always write about what I’m into atm.

When did you start your blog and what is your blog’s purpose? How does your blog add value to the world and make it a better place? – Chrissy

I started my blog April 14th as a get away place just for myself. Somewhere I could write about anything I’m passionate about. Well, about making a world better place… I’m not sure it does haha! I just hope I could bring people together and share our interests and hopefully also somehow inspire them.

What motivates you to continue blogging and helps you through writers block? Congratulations!! That is an amazing achievement! – learningbeaut by Ruth Garcia

Thank you Ruth! Definitely what helps me with my writers block is knowing how many people awaits my posts, which is so nice! Also when I can’t write I just think about what I’m excited/passionate about at the moment and then the block disappears, because I find a purpose to make another post. I usually like to plan ahead what I’m gonna write about, so the block is not a very big struggle of mine.

 

All authors of questions above are followed by me! Thank you for your Qs! ❤

APRIL FAVORITES: fashion & makeup

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Sorry for being inactive recently, I’ve just been very busy with many travels and doing my masters.

This week I’d like to share with you my favourite items of last month. I picked all of them by an impuls. Few of them I decided to get online hoping they will be comfortable and in the right size. Lucky for me everything happened to be perfect and I’m just obsessed with all of them atm (and surely I will be for a long time).

I was looking for a good bra for a quite some time, but I had problems with finding a one that will be as pretty as comfortable. I’m obsessed with Victoria’s Secret for a while and I already have quite a lot of panties from there so I hoped the bra will be really good quality as well. I wasn’t wrong. As soon as I tried this one on I fell in love! It’s definitely the most comfortable bra I ever had. Highly recommend! I know it’s quite pricey but definitely worth it!

Also they have great promotions! The time I was purchasing this bra I could get for free a lip product of my choice!

I chose this Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain in Adored and it happened to be the best shade of liquid lipstick I’ve ever had! I just love the consistency and it definitely doesn’t make your lips feel dry.

NEW LOOK

I found them online on promotion for around ($12) and just fell in love in them instantly! Already wore them few days straight and they’re so comfortable! Also they match everything I wear!

OYSHO

The last item is this cute, girly polka dot dress I ordered from oysho.com. I was looking for a dress this shape (envelope, but not from jersey material) for a long time! I’m glad they become more popular this summer.

Thank you for reading! Share in the comments what items are your monthly favorites!

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

As promised, today I’m answering all your questions from my last post (read). I’m so grateful for all 2000 of you (now 2100!)! So happy to have you here in Olita’s family! ❤

Let’s get to your questions, shall we?

How did you get that many? Any good tips? Could really use some!!! 

That is the most common question I get asked almost every day! Tbh I always go with my gutt when it comes to blogging. First thing would be definitely to not start a blog if all you can think of are those likes and followers, do it only because you enjoy it! Very important is to be engaged with community. Also a huge part of blogging is consistency of posting and bringing new content for your followers. Quality of pictures you upload is very important as well. Good luck!

What do you think is the best social media strategy for getting more visitors to a blog? And what was the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?

That’s a similar question to the one above and I think I can give the same answer here. Just keep being engaged in community and post consistently! The most challenging moment in my blogging journey would be definitely to try be consistent with posting and scheduling posts when I’m away.

My question is in regards to your vision, where do you see your blog ten years from now if all goes according to plan?

First of all I don’t have any plan. I’m blogging because I love it and it’s just something I do only for myself (nobody from my friends or family knows about it) and my followers. So I have no expectations at all actually!

I am losing my inspiration on filming video recently. Where do you get your blog post inspiration?

I usually write about what I find interesting at the moment. Sometimes it happens when I buy something for myself and feel the need to share it with my followers. The other time I’d feel like sharing my tips I think they could be helpful or just anything really that I’m passionate about.

What motivates to write posts and to continue blogging?

What keeps me motivated is that I truly enjoy to do blogging and it’s simply a getaway from work/home. It makes me feel relaxed and keeps my mind off some things I might be stressing about too much. Also it gives me a feeling of accomplishment which is really nice.

Thank you so much for all your questions! It’s always a pleasure to asnwer them! ❤

You can read more of my q&a’s here and here.
