Sharing with You: My Music

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Today I wanted to share with you something very special to me. My music. I’m a self-taught guitar player. I started to learn guitar at early years of my Academy, which would be around 4 years ago. Music gives me different opportunity, than painting, to express myself artistically. Songs usually come to me the moment I don’t even know about. They just fly out of me. This is the most satisfying and freeing feeling I ever had. I’ve been documenting my emotional growth and rewrite it in notes. Usually I write sad songs as I feel the need to tell sad stories. All of the songs are written  and composed by me. I’ve published my first album few years back. It is called “subtitles”, which meant those 6 songs were like “subtitles to my life”, description of my emotions.

Now, after a long break, I’ve been coming up with my second album. It doesn’t have name yet. I’m still working on it. It will have 5 songs in total and this is one of them.

Golden Gate is about love from a first sight. Love from only one perspective. Blind and kind of toxic love that puts the other person on the pedestal, when you’re ready to do anything for that them, but he/she doesn’t feel the same.  It was one of the mistakes I made while the most lonely and miserable time of my life.

What do you think? Share with me your opinions and thoughts! Do you play on any instruments and/or write music? Let me know!

May Favorites! Fashion & Makeup items

Hello Loves!

This Monday I wanted to share with you my favorites of the past month. My most worn items of clothing and two holy grails of makeup.

May has been a very busy month for me so everyday I was going for something comfortable to wear and very minimal makeup. I just wanted to take a shower, put my hair up, make my face acceptable looking (for me) and just throw on something and be good to go. Past month I wasn’t really in the mood to think about my outfit as I used to spend on it quite a lot of time. Those 5 items helped me to achieve that laid back, sporty but still chick and girly look with no effort at all. And here they are!

My Topshop Denim Jacket was making my every outfit so simple and stylish in the same time. It doesn’t get boring and you could pair it with almost everything! I usually wore it with black leggings, simple t-shirt, my white converse and gold hoop earings.

White converse I wore not just in May but almost everyday since it became a little warmer in Warsaw. They fit perfectly with every outfit through skirts and dresses to pants, leggings and fancy suits. They give that great pop of crisp white and make an outfit looking like you put some effort in picking it.

Brandy Melville pink suede bag it’s the cutest thing ever. Fits a lot of stuff, definitely more than you’d think, and it’s super soft. As the converse shoes it effortlessly brightens up any outfit.

Nars blush in OrgasmClassic, gorgeous coral – pink shade with golden shimmer. What else do you need? Honestly, in May I just used some bb cream and this blush. It’s all you need for that natural, flushed, glowy look. It also stays on for a very long time.

Granier BB cream in shade Extra light. Every lightest shade of BB cream I had bought (and I bought quite a lot) was too dark for me. It only matched well when I was slightly tanned. At the middle of the month I was out on a hunt for a good bb cream hoping they made better formulas for my complexion. Sometimes I was getting too oily in my T zone wearing it. I saw Garnier BB cream on a shelf in my drugstore and couldn’t believe it! They made extra light shade! The difference in shade of samples between this one and regular light shade was huge! I also never tried Garnier BB cream, even though all the good reviews I’ve read about it, because I was never a fan of the brand itself. I guess now I’m changed woman, because since I got this bb cream I can’t live without it! It’s a tinny tiny still to dark for me, but you cant’s really see it (I’m just obsessed). I asked people and nobody noticed it doesn’t fit perfectly my complexion. I guess it’s a matter of light. It gives me perfect coverage, I usually don’t go for full and prefer more natural finish. It doesn’t leave me matt but slightly glowing. I just need to touch up my nose with powder once through the day and I’m good (after applying it in the morning I don’t use any powder to set it). It’s perfect for summer and I’m super happy I decided to buy it! Such a good product! Although I’m still dreaming about Garnier will make Super Extra Light shade or that I’ll catch some more of that Sun! 😉

Everyday Personal Jewelry

Hello loves! In this post I wanted to share with you some of my jewelry pieces that I love and wear everyday. Honestly – I don’t even take it off! Because of that, they became the accessories that somehow make any outfit more me. All the pieces feel very special and personal since they were given to me by my loved ones. Each of them was a gift for a different occasion which also bring a lot of lovely memories.

I think it’s a great way to personalise your style and everyday outfits in the same time adding a little bit of elegance and shine.

I always pick gold as the main color for my jewelry (sometimes going also for rosegold). With neutral/warm skin undertone personally I feel better in “gold-ish” shades. Silver is perfect if your skin is cold undertoned and gold complements better a warmer complections. Though, in my opinion: Who cares?! Wear what you love and what you feel best in!

LITTLE DIAMOND RING

1

This little ring I was given by my godparents after finishing high school and starting my adult life in Academy of the Fine Arts. I put it on this very day and never took it off! People always ask if it’s an engagement ring (wrong finger!). It was funny for a year… five had past and it’s still favorite joke of any stranger I meet.

ROSEGOLD BAND

7

This precious one I got from my boyfriend last Christmas! I put it on my left hand since I already had the first ring on right one. I love it because it’s really sparkly when the lightning is strong and it has such a sweet, delicate heart detail going all around the side of the band.

GOLDEN NECKLACE

This one I got from my boyfriend a year ago. I was looking for a very delicate and small everyday necklace and one day when I found a perfect one he decided to surprise me.

I hoped you liked this post and maybe found some inspiration to find your own personal piece of jewelry! Or maybe you already have one? Or more than one? Share with me in the comments!

What’s in my bag?

Happy Monday Loves! I thought for this post I’ll show “What’s in My Bag” since I love to read those myself.

2

This gorgeous Mango bag I picked up in Berlin on my birthday trip around a month ago. For a very long time I was looking for a bag like this and when I found it (quite by accident) I was so excited! It was exactly what I was looking for! It’s black = matches everything, very comfortable, lightweight, soft. It can fit everything you need for a day out and it’s just perfect size – doesn’t look overwhelming on my little figure.

Now let’s get straight to what’s inside this beauty!

3

These are my everyday essentials I can’t live without, besides ballet flat though (I had a class that day, so I just threw them inside my bag). Usually I have tons of cosmetics to touch up my make up throughout the day. I guess I must had put most of them back to my make up collection few days ago since I discovered that now in my bag I have only lip balm, lipgloss and Nivea cream. I keep all my IDs and cards in a card holder.  I don’t like to use wallets anymore since they’re so heavy and big and I never carry cash with me. The rest: my work badge, mirror, ibuprofen, brush and hair tie, water, notebook, pen and headphones because “daaah!”.

  2. Recently I started ballet classes and I absolutely love it. I haven’t had danced when I was little but I always wanted to.
  3. Since I can remember I always wanted a dog. Each year on my birthday I had the same wish. A puppy. I had a rabbit and now I have a cat. I love(d) them so much but I still wish to have a pupper one day.
  4. I’m obsessed with Woody Allen’s movies. 
  5. I’m very fortunate to travel a looot. I keep track of places I’ve been to on a map.
  6. My favourite place on Earth is New York City.

Well, I hope you enjoyed to read those facts about me!

So everyone who will like this post or comment on it is nominated! Let’s spread love and leave the link to your post in the comments section! ❤

Instagram – outlet for my creativity 

Hello loves! Just so you know you can also follow my Instagram profile if you’re interested! I post there regularly once or twice per week. Beside many other great things about this social media platform I just find it as a great creative outlet for myself when I don’t have time or when I’m just too tired to set up everything ready in my art studio to paint.

Screen Shot 2017-04-04 at 18.32.39

On my Instagram I love to share beautiful things, makeup/skincare I use, ootds, places I’ve been too, food, puppies, my work and from time to time a selfie. I keep everything in bright, mostly white,  esthetic usually with elements of black, red, coral, pink and beige tones. I like this color combination the most and it pleases me (maybe even too much! haha) to find things that will fit with my theme. As here on my blog, on Instagram I share everything that brings me joy and hopefully spread creativity and love further. ❤

Do you have IG? If yes, leave the link in the comment. I’d love to see what you create! Let’s get to know each other better!
