My New Favorite Summer Scent!

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This week I would like to share with you my recent fragrance discovery! Nobody of my friends or family can’t believe that I’ve changed my fragrance. Well, yes, I did but just for summer 😉 For years and years (exactly 7 years) I was totally faithful to my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum. I feel like this scent was just made for me. My hairdresser always pointed out my scent, how much she likes it and that I never change it. Coco Mademoiselle seemed so perfect for me and I got so used to it, I just never thought about changing it up. What for if it’s the best? Without it I feel like I do when forgot my phone. It also always makes me calmer. It’s just magic!

After how I praised this scent it’s probably hard to believe that I found another one I love. It was always hard for me to find a scent I like. I like florar, but not too florar. I definitely don’t like sweet scents and those woody, deep and heavy ones make me feel like they would suit someone older than me. I’m just super picky about it. It doesn’t mean that when I’m at Sephora I don’t go and sniff some perfumes. I like to do it, but until just a few weeks back I haven’t liked anything else.

Me and my boyfriend were at the airport on a way for our summer vacation. I went into Victoria’s Secret to look around, since it was duty free I was hoping to find some bargain. I didn’t find anything I was looking for but I sniffed Bombshell Eau de Parfum and suddenly I felt something! I didn’t hate it! I liked it! I liked it a lot actually! I was really surprised with myself. Haha! I sprayed my hand and the whole day I was sniffing my wrist still doubting myself that I really like it. Well, guess what!

I liked it so much I decided to get a bottle. Now it reminds me our amazing vacations! Sun, beach, piña coladas and the warm water, hot weather and fancy dinners by the seaside. The scent is quite hard to describe. I feel like it’s fresh and little floral and little sweet too, but somehow this combination works so well for me! It just so well made and none of the scent ingredients is not too strong. It’s very well blended. I’d never thought it’s floral if I didn’t read it on a box*. Well… I guess I like floral and a little bit of fruity sweetness now, because this scent just stole my heart. No wonder it’s such a classic at VS! Highly recommend!

*Description on VS website: Purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid

And what is your favorite scent? Do you have one and only or you like to switch it up? Let me know! And what do you think about the ones I’ve wrote about? Did you ever sniffed them?

1000 Followers Q&A

Hello loves!

Sorry for missing two Mondays, but I didn’t have enough of time before I left for my holidays to schedule blog posts. But I’m back! Happy, rested and tanned! Because of that I post exceptionally today.

I collected all your questions from the thank you post after hitting a huge milestone! 1000 followers (now actually already 1228)! Thank you so much! ❤

How often did you post when you started the blog and what kept you motivated? 

First I posted once per week. Different days. I tried to see which day suits me the best and is the most comfortable for me to post on. I chose to post on Mondays. Then I tried to post twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays), which with my academy and work schedule was super hard so I switched back to posting only on Mondays.

What kept me motivated I think was that I truly enjoy to do it, so it was simply a getaway from work/home stuff.

How did you get into blogging? And what are you aspirations for the future? (Blogging wise or personal)

I was looking for another getaway beside making art and music from everyday life. I was very, very hesitant to start my blog. Whom for I’ll be doing it? Will people like to read it? I finally decided to do it for myself and I didn’t want anyone to know about it. Till today nobody from my family and friends knows that I have a blog. I never imagined my blog will be taken so well by you loves. I can’t believe you really enjoy it! I’m very grateful.

Aspirations? Let’s see when it will all take me. I’m gonna keep doing what I love and write more post, trying to still improving in every aspect of blogging. Hopefully I’ll make myself do more fashion/outfits posts and maybe some makeup tutorials that will include more me in pictures. It’s just I’m too camera shy. I have a lot of insecurities and it’s really hard for me. But let’s say that that is my goal for now. 🙂

If you could go anywhere for a dream vacation, where would you go?

New York or Aruba!

Pizza or pasta?

Pasta!

What is your favourite scent?

I love Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum the most in the world! It’s 100% my scent. I use them everyday for a good 7 years! I could say it’s my signature scent now. Haha. But I have to admit recently I fell in love with a Bombshell Eau de Parfum from Victoria’s Secret. I just got a bottle and it smells like summer! Love it!

 If you were to get a tattoo, what would it be?

I already have a tattoo! I wrote a blog post about the whole story of me getting it. Although I want a second one already! Definitely it will be something about NYC. I was thinking just about tiny letters.

Who is your celebrity style inspiration?

I have a lot! I love Gigi Hadid and bloggers Samantha Maria and my girl Maffashion.

If you were a superhero, what would your name and power be?

Name? Idk! haha, but my power will definitely be teleporting!

  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.

  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.

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!
