Inspiration #4

london-christmas_1118463iWith a few of my friends abroad for University in and around London and my own prospects of leaving for the UK next year I can only feel more and more drawn towards this city. I don't know why, but every time I've been there it has offered me the most beautiful surprises and experiences and I can't imagine what it would be like living there with all the gorgeous British accent surrounding me.

Tumblr &Co.

A few years ago I kept hearing about Tumblr and how its incredible photos could hook everyone to it. I, obviously, thought it was... well, bullshit. Not to mention I tried to see what it was all about and without an account I couldn't see squat. Why would anyone want to post random pictures on a random site where no one would probably see them. Wouldn't they be better off in a folder on our computers?

About a year ago when I was greeted by a friend with "You HAVE to get Twitter! It's the next new thing!". When she told me what Twitter was basically about I assumed the world was reaching its end. When I researched and looked it up on-line I was convinced the Mayans must have been right. WHY (again) would people want to use Twitter? I didn't get it at all, and I couldn't see how some people might have found it useful. 

forcedly  reluctantly signed up for Tumblr and Twitter and tried to experiment with both of them. And I still couldn't really get them. I think I kept both accounts for about half a year without posting anything because I just didn't really care about them. 

However, almost a year after the failed attempts I have begun to like using these two platforms although I ask myself every day why. There's two sides to every coin: when using Twitter you find yourself sharing more than you should, like when I tweeted a few days ago that I was home alone. What if there was a random stalker that saw that and came to my house to murder me? I could've acted all Bruce Lee but no acting skill could turn me into a killing machine. But, to me at least, Twitter is also the place where I can share silly stuff without worrying that someone might judge me. If I feel like writing perverted comments or just tweeting the first word that comes to my mind "booger" let's say, no one would judge me, as I don't have a lot of friends on Twitter.

Tumblr right now is flawless for me, I can find a lot of interesting photos and there are many great quality Tumblr sites at the moment. 
However, I still can't grasp the notion of how much people have started depending on their internet connection and their online dealings. Whether it is through blogging, tweeting or sharing photos on Facebook, each of our lives is in one way or another exposed online.  

On a happier note,platforms like Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest etc. do offer us the great advantage of easier communication (worse communication skills however) as long as they do not grow to control our lives and behaviour.

How many of you use any of these platforms and what do you think about them?

Inspiration #3

I've been all about sharp silhouettes, prints and urban chic lately and this picture encompasses it all. The printed pencil skirt, leather jacket and red-black combo are absolutely everything I could wish for right now and if the weather still allowed me to I would absolutely try to recreate this look.

Morning Face

DSC_01521
These photos were taken at 7 o'clock in the morning, last Saturday. It was such a full day but a very promising one as well. I had to wake up early to go prepare a location for an event I organised. It was hard work, preparing everything for the past months but it all turned out great. Of course, there are always things to be improved but I think we started off on the right foot. 
The centre of the outfit was supposed to be what was UNDERNEATH my jacket, but it was so cold that morning that I couldn't bear take it off. (And honestly, I thought I would have time to shoot some other photos later that day but unfortunately I didn't have a second to spare). So here you are left with three photos shot outside my block of flats, with my 7 am face and a slight attempt to an edited photo. 

Hope you like them! xx

Looking out for Jeans


Let me introduce you The Burgundy, The Printed and The High-Waisted. These are the three jeans that I think someone should have in their wardrobe.

I honestly wrote a mile long post here, but I don't know what happened, Blogger decided to delete it half sentence. So just pretend you read a witty text accompanying each of these fancy jeans.
I did write one, honestly.
