The usual scenario of how my every outfit shooting stars is something like this: 'Nicola oh my gosh, I have nothing to wear!'. 'What is my style? Am I all about that minimal style or am I a walking rainbow?!'. Then I get lectured for about 10 minutes how I shouldn't care at all or try go in just one direction. Style is meant to be versatile and playful, it shouldn't be specific. Life is way too short for that. Yet, I seem to have a hard time accepting my own craziness. But that's why I love having friends like Nicola, who as you know is making most of the photos for my blog as well. You may wonder why would I put myself through that hassle if I find it so annoying sometimes? Well I will answer that for you right there, because I love it and blogging makes me happy. No, I don't get paid for any of this. Yes, most of the stuff I wear in the photos is gifted but that's all a part of the game. It challenges me to step out of that comfortable circle of clothes which typically consist of old tshirts and boring blue jeans. It makes me experiment, and that is what I love about blogging.

Starting a blog post with a regret is not exactly the most positive thing but oh well. As you see, I was absent from the blog for a little bit because I had my best friend visiting me for a couple of days. So no computer, no blogging while she was here because I wanted to enjoy this precious time. I only wish I have scheduled a couple of posts in the meantime but better late than never. I am here today to share with you some new pics which I shot in one of my favorite places in Frankfurt - a park less than a few minutes walk away from where I live. It's so so peaceful there, so green and every day when I used to go to work I felt so blessed to live in this neighborhood. Today we met with Nicola again to quickly snap a few pictures, and these will also be on the blog soon - so rest assured although I am busy I do have quite a bit of new content for you guys, which I just need to prepare and post! I love sharing my thoughts here, it's like a diary but not as private. A place where I can just be me and not worry about trying to look cool or trying to impress anyone. All I care about is spreading love, striving for inner peace, and seeking sunshine. That's what makes me the happiest.

Evening everybody! How are you all doing? It's my first post of the summer, and I have a feeling there will be many exciting ones to come in the next couple of months so stay tuned! I am currently lazying on the couch after what feels like a really long day. Although I woke up at 11am met with Nicola for a lunch and then ran some errands in the city, I am really tired. But I am gonna go to bed earlier today in the hopes that I have a productive early start tomorrow. I have a lot planned and need to clean too because my best friend is flying in on Saturday morning to visit me for a couple of days. And then another one comes one week later. I am so excited to see them! Even though we met in March when I was in Lithuania, I am still looking forward to spending time with them as I don't know when I will have the next opportunity to do that. Now let's have a little chat about this outfit over here that I wore a couple of days ago. I am so in love with this denim jacket lately that I swear I wear it daily. And that little black dress is just perfect. Comy material, perfect length and flattering shape. These are always the most important aspects I look for in clothes.

And the last post of May and 2016 spring is here. I am rushing to write it down like a university deadline because of course there was not enough time in the day. To summarize May in a few sentences and words, it was pretty hectic and busy yet exciting and full of good moments. I just know that I will always remember it. There is so much to come next month and I will finally share it with you soon! But before I do, I wanted to post some of my favorite moments from this month, which I have not shared on my Instagram. I hope you guys enjoy this compilation of photos as I guess it gives you a more personal look into my life rather than let's say the outfits I share on the blog. I feel like it's always so interesting to peek into someone's life through these type of pictures. I am not saying that my life is interesting or anything but I do hope someone out there enjoys these kind of posts. Goodbye spring, I am so ready for June and my favorite season of the year - summer.

Easy like Sunday morning. That's what life feels like right now. No, it's not a whirlwind. Quite the opposite really. I am so grateful for these kind of moments in life. Even though my head feels like a whirlwind every now and then, I am glad I don't have bigger worries at the moment. I just wanna walk around twirling and spreading confetti everywhere. It might be the good side effect of summer approaching us or just me having a positive attitude. Either way, I am grateful and could not be more happy. I know this post is clearly going nowhere in terms of what I am trying to say, but I vowed to be honest here forever and always. You know I share my good experiences and the bad, and I hope I can infect you with that positive energy today. So although my head does feel like a whirlwind and probably always will, I am rather smooth sailing. It's just one of those good moments in life right now where you don't wanna change a thing.

I am sitting here with an ice pack on my forehead and thinking how do I always end up in these kind of situations. I just went for a swim in the pool and on the way home managed to not notice a see-through door while exiting the building. By that I mean I slammed into it with a full force and my head is pounding like a drum right now. Oh well, I guess it could happen to anyone. But it surely is a funny way to start your weekend. To get to more positive things, I am gonna try to have a relaxing weekend because this week felt exhausting and busy. Lots of paperwork, appointments and so on, that is why I will just try to catch my breath and stay away from glass doors or any other potential hazards haha. We shot this outfit last week and I am so in love with these glitter shoes that I found in my mom's closet when visiting her. Well they are actually mine and I bought them I think 4 years ago but I never knew how to style them although they are super comfy. I was on the lookout for shiny silver shoes as they are so popular at the moment, and was happy to re-discover these oldies. I paired it with my favorite black leather-like jeans, an orange blouse et voilà. Let me know how you like this outfit! Have a lovely Friday.

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.
