October rings in the season of pumpkin spice lattes and all things Halloween, but every year October also marks the fight against breast cancer an each year there’s more and more brands hopping on the bandwagon to show their support. As it is a topic close to my heart, I decided to put together a selection of fashion-y items with which you can show your support. For example, Lindex has a special pink collection for the 14th year in a row, with 10% of the…Continue Reading “Pink October”

The title of this post is thoroughly justified, because Venice really feels like a living, breathing postcard that sucks you in to its little alleys of narrow houses and gondola-filled canals. One thing that you don’t see on the postcards (or the planned Instagrams), however, are the thousands of tourists swarming over the Rialto bridge and making their way through said alleys towards St. Mark’s square. Even though Pinterest paints a pretty picture of a romantic Venice, the reality was quite overwhelming (funfact: there are…Continue Reading “Postcards From Venice”

With all the holiday posts going up here on my blog, you could almost forget the reality of falling leaves, finger-freezing-temperatures and the wailing wind outside. So, with a cup of tea in hand (I hope you have one too), I’m taking a break from 30degree Italy and taking you straight to 10degree Estonia where summer dresses are replaced by sweaters and afternoon Spritz’s with take-away chilli cappuccinos.  Naturally, as it’s got colder, I’ve taken my sweaters out of the closet more and more and…Continue Reading “A Welcome Break”

On to more Italian adventures, with Verona, the (un)official city of romance lined up! Although despite the fancy title, I didn’t particularly fall in love with it. It did provide some stunning views and gorgeous streets for some hand-in-hand lovey-dovey exploring, but having seen a fair few European old towns in my time, Verona didn’t really stand out too much. Of course our two days of walking were filled with oohing-and-aahing too, but instead of a full on city guide I decided to put together…Continue Reading “5 Tips For Verona”

Throwing it back to sunny Verona and one of my favourite off-the-beaten-path gems of our trip. Away from the tourist-filled old town, the Giusti Gardens provided a welcome break from the sightseeing, with the high cypress trees and slowly dripping fountains giving us some much-needed refuge from the hot sun too. The gardens are hidden from the street and you only find this haven of calm once you’ve passed through an archway of a pretty inexpressive building. They’re also surrounded by high walls on every…Continue Reading “Secret Gardens In Verona”

As promised, I’m dipping my toes to travel blogger waters and putting together three little city guides from my week in Italy. For some background information, we took the flight from Riga to Bergamo, in classic budget Ryanair style and then travelled across the country all the way to Venice, ticking off Verona and Padova along the way. In hindsight, a week was a bit too little time for so many cities, but I couldn’t help missing any of them, because when else am I…Continue Reading “A Mini Guide To Bergamo”

Buongiorno, Italian posts! I’m well back into my everyday routine here and our picture-perfect getaway to Italy seems like a million miles away (whereas it’s only been a week…). Nothing like those autumnal temperatures and long days at work to welcome a girl back home! However I plan to guide you though that week in Italy and put on a brave travel blogger face, if you’ll bare with me and my holiday pictures.  As this is first and foremost a style blog, then clothes get…Continue Reading “Walks In Bergamo”

Not a lot of things excite me more than the prospect of one day having a place of my own and getting to decorate it to my heart’s content. Which in my case means a load of plants, pictures on every wall and an unhealthy amount of nostalgic trinkets here and there. And a cat. Until I have a place of my own in the most Holly Golightly of ways, I’ll have to do with little personal details and clever interiour planning. So I present…Continue Reading “Dorm Room Decoration Ideas”

Hello, ultimate girlie post! I think I’ve reached peak “blogger status” now that I’m revealing my make-up routine, although I feel like calling it a routine is a bit far-fetched. Having tried the beauty blogging scene for a while and not being afraid of brushes, blushes and bronzers anymore, I’ve just developed a few firm favourites which seem to make me look decent even on the busiest and most tired mornings. I’ve tried and tested and finally feeling content with the insides of my make-up…Continue Reading “The Everyday Beauty Routine”

I’m not the most patient of girls (an aries, after all), but it turns out that giving up on buying this top and waiting until the sales to buy it might have been worth it after all. Not only did I get it for an unbelievable five euros on the tag (and saved 15, which is like six cappuccinos), but so far it’s proved to be the perfect end-of-summer top. Perfect with jeans for chillier days, which means all the days apparently, but with an…Continue Reading “Sleeves For Days”
