Hello, friends!

And with that we are in December, the last and the best month of the year. Somehow, even though Christmas and December is meant for peace, merry and quiet, not always that is the case. On most occasions it is the opposite. You need to tie loose ends, need to find gifts for everyone and outfits for everything. If you are in university, this most likely is your deadline time, if you are working - you need to make sure your projects are done before everyone goes in deep sleep for a those few days from Christmas to New Years. To say the least, it is possible that during some moments this might not sound like the best month, however to me it is always still magical. And that is because I choose to make it magical for myself.

December comes with trees and fairy lights, Princess Street in Edinburgh is filled with the scent of Mulled Wine and, of course bockwurst, from the Christmas market. To some the streets are filled with obsessed people pushing and shoving to find the perfect gift, to me, it means family and others looking to make those closest to them happy. During the colder months, it is always easier to slip in something a darker (both physically and mentally), but I love breaking things apart with something bolder, like a red beret, or deep purple velvet shoes(velvet obsession is still in full swing).

Hello, lovely people!

Almost in a blink of an eye we are reaching the finish line of November, and with that Autumn itself. Although, this Autumn in Scotland, like any other Autumns here, has been like out of a story book, I am excited for December to come with all the magical things of Christmas. With the year coming closer to  its end, it is nice to reflect on your choices and actions, both fashion and life, haha. This Autumn, I was obsessed with velvet, and I do not think I am coming out of that obsession any time soon, either. I was joyful when berets became a thing, because we all know a girl loves a hat. And then, as a cherry on top for a very fashion Autumn, it was tweed and check everything. 

Even though, I never fully boarded the check train, I absolutely fell inlove with this top on my trip to London from Stradivarius. Inditex brands (Zara, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Massimo Dutti etc) are very popular back home, mainly dominating the high-street, however in Scotland and Edinburgh specifically, the most you will get is your trusty Zara. Which is where the green velvet trousers are from, of course! So, imagine my excitement when I was re-united with my past loves.

Navy Velvet Shorts and White Shirt

Hello, beautiful people!

I can't believe it will soon be almost a month since I boarded the plane to New York. I guess time goes by quick when you are having fun. One of the things I really wanted to do this time around on my visit to NY was to go to the Central Park. Surprisingly, I had never been before and Central Park in October time is a must, like the largest cup of coffee on a Monday.

As some of you may have noticed and I have already touched on this before - this Autumn I am living my ultimate velvet fantasy. It came as a trend last Autumn and sort of stayed through Summer, then fully peaked again this season. So, logically when I saw these absolutely amazing cute navy velvet shorts, I just had to wear them with my trusty thigh-high boots for our morning walk through the park.

Hi, beautiful people!

I have always been a firm believer of going against the flow, standing out and not listening to people's opinions about myself and my decisions I have made in my life. The world we live in, we are a part of constant feedback - likes, comments, shares - they are all some form of someone's opinion towards whatever you wish to share out there in the scary place called the Internet. And that does not even touch base of what we say to people every day directly. 

Even though I am extremely honest, and tend to often communicate in fluent sarcasm, I will never judge or influence anyone's decisions, unless that is asked from me. In which case, please sit down, bring out the fine China and lets talk. I think this is also very often reflected in my fashion choices, whether that would be daily or for special occasions. So, normally on my trip to New York, where most actual New Yorkers prefer wearing black over any form of colour, I just HAD to rock out my pink Pom Pom shoes, heart-shaped bag and pink, floral dress.
