Home Decor Ideas & DIY


It has been a while since I added some new decor pieces to my apartment. Living in a rented apartment doesn't really give you tons of options, as I don't really want to invest in a lot of decor things that won't be suitable if I were to move places (which you never know when it's going to happen in a rental apartment). Therefore, I only get small bits that can be easily transferred in a different place and are rather versatile. I put together a little video of the things I've changed around the apartment, so maybe it will give you some ideas on what you can do for your home if you are in a similar situation, or if you're just looking for some new ideas. 


If you are interested to see how I did those little deco bottles and more on the blackboard (which I placed in my kitchen), then you can watch the video HERE.

Hope you enjoyed this!

Outfit Ideas no.38: The Casual One


scarf: avon
blazer: local store
sweater: new yorker (a while ago)
jeans: bershka
shoes: deichmann
bag: vintage (from my mom)

It has been a while since I've blogged an outfit of the day and, since these are a lot of times my favorites to see on other people's blogs, I figured it was about time I posted a new one. The weather has been changing quite a lot lately, we've had days when it felt like it was almost summer, then some really rainy and chilly ones as well. Therefore, my outfit had to be windy-situation appropriate. It was a casual day, I basically just went out in the morning to run some errands and spent the rest of the day at the library.  

Hope you enjoyed this little outfit post! And here's a quick question for you guys: Since I've been enjoying all the "What I wore Wednesday" link parties so much, I thought I would start my own here soon. What do you think about that? Would you join? Let me know in the comments below.

Spring TAG

(yes, I am aware that I've posted the picture above before, but I thought it was very appropriate for this post)

My lovely friend here on the blogosphere, Siân Marie, tagged me to do the spring tag! And what could be a more appropriate blogpost for a lovely day of April?! Here it goes:

What's your favourite nail colours for Spring?
I am going to have to agree with Siân on this one: I am for pastels & nude shades all the way, especially in spring time. There's something about soft looking nails that always makes me feel very lovely.

Best drink for Spring?
My go-to drink for whenever warm seasons come around is definitely lemonade.

What goes on your lips in Spring?
For the most part it's nude colors, because I'm just that kind of person. However, I've been loving lately the Maybelline Color Whisper in Coral Ambition, which is something different from my usual neutral tones.

What's your favourite thing about Spring?
The warmth!! I adore those spring days when it's warm enough to not need a jacket, yet it's not too hot like mid-summer. Also everything becomes green and colorful again, which is nice (I sound like I'm kindergarten, don't I?!).

Best perfume for Spring?
My favorite perfume for all-seasons is the Zara Black one, but usually in spring I'll go for scented body lotions instead. And for that I love the scent of the Nivea Happy Time body lotion.

What TV series are you watching most at the moment?
I finished a while ago Breaking Bad (which was mind-blowing and incredibly good). Currently, I'm pretty much watching The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, and recently started Lost (I'm probably the last person to watch that series).

Do you wear a different coloured eyeshadow in Spring?
Not really. I do experiment on some days, but for the most part I'm with my neutrals, brown tones and sometimes pinks.

Do you change your hair for the changing season?
No, if I change my hair it's usually because I just feel like it, not necessarily because seasons change. 

What kind of music do you listen to in Spring?
I guess most of the time I just let the radio play, but I do enjoy cheerful, uplifting songs during spring (I like James Blunt, Taylor Swift, Imagine Dragons, Katie Sky and many others).

What kind of fashion items/accessories do you opt for in Spring?
I love mint and peach tones, florals - obviously - and let's not forget about my all time must-have: stripes! :P


Hope you enjoyed this little tag! I think most of my blogging friends have done this tag, so I'm not goign to tag anyone in particular. I tag everyone who would like to do this! :)
