If I could tell you one thing about myself, it would be this - I am not a morning person oh but how do I love breakfasts! I think I could count on one hand how many times I skipped breakfast in my life. It's my favorite meal of the day and I roll my eyes each time when someone says they never eat breakfast. I just don't understand how can one skip probably the best part of their day? Ok, ok that is rude I won't start blaming anybody for their life choices. As you probably guessed, I started my morning today with a brunch. My friend Nicola invited me and a few gal pals for a late breakfast/brunch in her balcony and this is how it all looked. Lots of fruits and yummy goodness, pancakes, freshly baked pastries and much more. Let's just say that our brunch lasted at least a few hours and it was exactly what I needed to relax. The weather was amazing and we were all lounging in the balcony enjoying full bellies and sunshine on our faces. I am so happy the summer is just around the corner.

This morning I received this lovely package that I've been waiting for. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this Zoeva brush set since I have used their foundation brush (and still do) before and loved. Now I know I am no makeup artist and will never have the experience or the knowledge of Youtube beauty gurus but let me tell you what I think as as a simple girl - I absolutely LOVE THIS SET! I do have to admit though that this gorgeous design is really one of the things I adore most about this set but that is not to say that quality of the brushes is bad. It's amazing! My friends laughed why on Earth would I need so many brushes, but I gotta be honest I will start to wear more makeup in the next months and you will find out very soon why, so I feel like a good set of brushes is so important. It's the same when good workout clothes put you in the right mood to get active. Likewise, good beauty products and makeup brushes can get you more passionate about makeup. Well at least that's I think. Another thing about this brush set that I really love is how versatile it is. I might need to invest in one more flat kabuki brush and I am all set for the next years. If that is not an amazing set, than I don't know what is.

And my favorite day of the week is here! I love Saturdays, they are productive and always full of rush. Yet, they still feel quite relaxing and that is what I like about them so much. Today was more of a laid back kinda Saturday at home. Tons of laundry, editing photos, cleaning around and so on. I usually do these things on Sundays but I am happy to know that I can do whatever I desire tomorrow without feeling guilty that I am not doing anything productive. I still have quite a few things to get done today but I first wanted to say hello here and post these photos. I wore this outfit a couple of days ago while running some errands in the city but I thought it is such a perfect outfit for the weekend as well. Nothing beats comfort with a few stylish pieces. It's definitely go-to attire for whenever I need to feel comfy without looking (and most importantly feeling) boring. I hope you like the pieces I am wearing here. What are your weekend plans?

Less than a year and a half ago I was sitting in my dormitory room thinking how much I wanna start a blog, where I could share one of my biggest passions - photographs. I don't even want to think the amount of photos I took in my whole lifetime, I am sure it is more than I would ever be able to look through. Not to mention how many of them never made it to this blog, were never posted and were taken just for the pure pleasure of capturing the moment. Nonetheless, I always loved that tingling feeling inside when I heard a camera click. A moment photographed forever. A look, a pose, a smile. I don't know how many people appreciate photos as deeply as I do. I rip pages from fashion magazines, look at a photograph and admire it for several minutes. I don't think the photos I share here on the blog are anywhere as good though, but I do hope that someone likes looking at them. I sure do enjoy trying my best to make them as professional as possible. And to think that just a year and a half later, still being just an amateur blogger, I am able to work with brands like Topshop really blows my mind. I never expected that things that were once surreal and out of reach can be possible. This only goes to show, that even the smallest dream can always come true.
Hey peeps! For quite some time I have not shared a post like this. Simply what I am doing, or where I am. And I thought I will do one today because I felt so inspired by a place I visited. My mom really wanted to go somewhere new for a late brunch and her friend recommended this cute little town Bad Pyrmont about an hour's drive away. I am not the one to get out of bed bright and early on my own free will but when I have something exciting planned that day, I have no problem. So this morning, despite having woken up to pretty bad weather, I was really happy to go this town nearby. Then again, when am I not excited to go somewhere haha. To be honest, I did not expect to find a little paradise like this just an hour's drive away?! I mean palm trees in Germany are as rare as I don't even know what to compare it to. But you get what I mean. Brunching in a cozy coffee, sipping on a coffee or two and wandering the streets of a lovely historic town is definitely a recipe to keep my good spirits up. I really hope you enjoy the photos! And please share your story if you ever discovered a little paradise like this somewhere close to where you live.

I would be lying if I said this sunshine is not influencing me in a positive way. I've been going out a lot more, seizing the days and simple daily moments. Oh and if only you knew how much I need to do that before everything in my life starts to change soon... but more on that in the next weeks. I am not the most outgoing person and as you know I would choose staying in over going out almost any time, but sometimes you just have to let loose and enjoy life. When I was approached by Daniel Wellington team to create an outfit for an evening out and about, I decided that nothing screams 'party' more than some classic pieces! I know you may not agree with me, but to me, whenever I see someoene dressed up smart, I know they are not running errands in the city. That's why I chose a faux leather dress from Tart Collections, added some detail with a classy watch on my wrist and a patterned pantyhose from Swedish Stockings, and I am all ready! Of course, I have some discount codes for you all so take a look and choose your night out essentials.

Hello, May. Hello to this new turn that my life has taken. Right now, it all feels too unreal, too fresh and I don't know if I could put my thoughts into words even if I tried. One thought that keeps going round and round in my head is that it's unbelievable how much things can change in such a short span of time. How everything in life has its right timing, and you just need to believe that everything will work out in the end exactly the way it should be. I mentioned a couple of times, that I do not believe in coincidences. Such word simply does not exist in my vocabulary. Everything, and I mean literally every thing happens for a reason. At the moment, I couldn't be more happy and more content with what's going. I will be sharing it all soon with you guys, when the time is right. I know it's a bit of a tease but I just have to let it all sink in first. These photos I shot with my friend Nicola (a million thank you like always, if you're reading this) really represent how I feel inside at the moment. I think they are my favorite photos I ever shared on the blog, so I really hope you love them too.
