A beautiful lie

Hi lovely readers! I hope your week has been great so far and that it will continue to be so. I'm doing quite well if anyone was wondering. I have no more tests this week, so I can relax and enjoy myself. 
If you haven't noticed, I take one thing that happened to me that week every week and tell you what I've learned from it. Of course I don't want to go into detail, but I've learned to use these challanges that life gives me to better myself. If I can help anyone else along the way, that's just an added bonus
Most of us have experienced being lied to or decieved in any way and it hurts every time. Especially if the person in question is really close to you. And sometimes it's hard to just get past that and not hold a grudge against them. You can just feel the anger burning inside you along with the pain of being disrespected in that way. And that goes for every kind of being hurt, not just being lied to. But that anger is only hurting you. I used to resent so many people for the things they had done to me and I was only hurting myself by doing that. I couldn't really enjoy myself because I was weighed down by all this negativity I was feeling towards other people. And eventually, when I learned to forgive them and leave those things behind, I realized how destructive that was for me. It's so easy to hate people, to have negative feelings towards them and forgiving takes too much effort on your part. But it's so worth it. And don't get me wrong, you're not forgiving them for them, but for you. If someone hurt you, it doesn't mean you have to let them do that to you again. Especially if you can feel someone is destructive and it has a negative effect on your mental state. But you can still forgive them and move on, let it go and feel more calm inside. Inner peace is one of the best things you can have, honestly. 
Okay, now onto my gorgeous outfit. This is hands down my favourite outfit so far. I felt incredible wearing it and I think the confidence came through. There have been very few photo shoots where I liked almost all photos and this was one of them. I had such a hard time picking just a few of them and ended up with 12. It's my most elegant outfit, it's polished, but of course has a bit of edge (because it's me). I stayed classy with the pants and blouse, but the shoes and long blazer make it stand out. And of course, the beautiful hat that I've been searching for for the past year. 
I hope you enjoy the photos!













I'm wearing: 

pants - H&M
blouse - H&M
blazer - H&M 
hat - H&M
shoes - Humanic 
nails - OPI, shade Bastille My Heart
lipstick - Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, shade 03 Hot pepper

Thank you for reading and I'll be back in a week or so. 
I love you guys! XX

A million dots

Hello lovely readers! I wanted to post this yesterday, but somehow I just couldn't get around to actually doing it, so it's here today. 
This past week has been really great, one of the best I've had in quite a while. It's mostly due to me doing some thinking and coming clean to myself and my close friends about some things that have been bothering me and just being honest. Every time I come to terms with another part of who I am, it makes me stronger more comfortable in my own skin. 


I came across this quote today and I think it goes with the theme of my week. Discovering yourself, finding yourself is important and I think we should all spend a lot more time building great relationships with ourselves, not just others. Figuring out what we want, how we want to define ourselves or if we want to do that at all. And it's hard for others to put you down if you know yourself because you know they are just talking bullshit and you aren't what they want you to think you are. I hope you understand what I'm getting at here. 

Now onto the outfit. I went with something really simple this week and it's sort of 50' inspired. The dress is so light and flowy and I love the way it falls on my body. I paired it with a simple red lip and loafers. I hope you like it. 










I'm wearing: 

dress - H&M 
loafers - Zara

Lizard

Hello lovelies! I hope you're doing okay, I'm certainly much better. I mean it's a beautiful sunny friday, what more could one want? 
There's so much going on right now I can barely follow. The end of this schoolyear is already in sight and I can't wait for summer to come, but at the same time it feels like everything is moving too fast. It's like I just started high school and I'm already choosing the subjects for matura and thinking about which university to go to. And as much as it is scary, I'm also excited. I want to learn, I want a change of environment, new people, new experiences. I love what I have here, but I can't just stay in the same place for the rest of my life. I have to leave my comfort zone once more so I can grow and prosper, as hard as it may be. I get really attached to people and places, so this will be particularly difficult for me. And I know I'm not leaving just yet, but before I know it, I'll be finishing my last year of high school. I don't really know why I'm talking about this, I think I just wanted to share a tiny bit of what's going through my head right now. 
Okay, now the outfit. I'm absolutely in love with this blouse even though I seldom wear it. It's bright and bold, just like me. I found the pants in Zara while I was in Ljubljana on info days and they were on sale for just 12 €, such a bargain! They compliment the colour of the blouse perfectly and they also match my nails (I did not know that when I bought the nail polish though). Of course my look wouldn't be complete without a bold lip that clashes with everything else and I adore the blue and yellow combination. I finished it off with my trusty Buffalos. I hope you like it! 









I'm wearing: 

blouse - H&M 
shorts - Zara
bralet - H&M 
shoes - Buffalo 
nails - Catrice, shade 75 Khaki Perry's Firework

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you have an awesome day and I'll be back in a week or two!
Love you guys!

White pearl

Hello lovelies! I know I've been really shitty at posting every week, but hopefully things will get better after the end of May. As much as I love doing this, I don't always have the time or the energy. 

How are you? My past few weeks haven't been the greatest and I've been struggling a bit. Don't really want to get into it too much, but I think I'm not the only one. There comes a time when you find it hard to keep your head above the water, when you're not sure what you are doing and why and it becomes hard to believe anything good can happen. You stop having faith in yourself and everything around you. You can't really do things properly if you don't believe you can do them and that further lowers your self-esteem. The only thing that goes through your head is: "I can't do this. I can't. It's too much." But that is where you have to stop yourself and these thoughts. They'll bring you nothing good and with every doubt you'll find yourself deeper and deeper in this shit. It becomes a circle that's hard to get out of, but you have to. When you want to give up on yourself, keep telling yourself that you can do it. Maybe you don't really believe it at first, but even faking it is better than putting yourself down. And if just thinking it isn't enough, say it out loud. Just say: "I can do this." It's simple, but it can work wonders. All the knowledge in the world can't help you if you don't believe in your capabilities. Instead of focusing on the negative, try to think of at least one good thing about yourself or your day and focus on that. Focus on what makes you smile, something that makes you feel warm inside. And it's hard to just forget all the bad, you can't just do it in a sec. But you can slowly replace it with something better, something that has a positive effect on your mental health. I believe in you. I know you can do it. The Universe has your back, you just have to believe that good things can happen and that they will. 
Okay, now a thing or two about my outfit. I've been wanting to do an all white outfit for ages but somehow I never got around to doing it. I paired my brother's white shirt with a white midi skirt that has gorgeous laser cut detailing to create a classy look and topped it off with a white blazer (that I've been wearing way too much). To spice things up I added my Buffalo platforms that always give my outfits that little bit of edge that I like. I hope you like it! 










I'm wearing: 

shirt - my brother's (H&M)
skirt - Zara
blazer - H&M
platforms - Buffalo

nails - Catrice, shade 71 CadiLILAC
lips - Essence lipliner, shade 12 Wish me a rose

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you have an awesome day and I'll be back in a week or two!
Love you guys!
