Liebster Award

Greetings,




Today´s post will be a little different. I was nominated for Liebster Award from little miss FASHIONOMICALL :) Little I say, because she is my younger sister. What a turnaround, HA? Does it count as an AWARD, is your sister nominates you?? WELL, I guess it does. But just to say, I am so proud of her that she got nominated by someone she doesn´t even know! Good job, SIS.

There are quite a few rules attached to this award nomination so lets go right into them:


1. Thank and link a person who nominated you

2. Write the rules and display the award
3. Answer 11 questions and write 11 of your own
4. Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers on their blog) and don´t forget letting them now that they have been nominated
5. Write 11 facts about yourself


Questions from Nina:

1. What´s your latest purchase?

Aside from all things related to living (like food), I bought a pair of green army skinny jeans, a grey and black T-shirt and a cute jeans jacket. I didn´t even spend much, like 30 EUR. Although I stated that I am not going shopping until I save a little something for a nice summer vacation but I guess, It just happened :)


2. Are you saver or spender?

Huge spender. And after I splurge on cute items, I feel bad for not saving money. I am trying to change that now, though. My boyfriend is a huge saver, so that helps. But I don´t buy things just for myself, I often find something cute and think: "Oh, my mom (or someone else) would love this!". Then I buy it for her/him. I like to see people happy, so I surprise them.

3. What´s your favourite Beauty brand?

I use the same brands for beauty products all the time. I love Subrina for Shampoo, Dove deodorant and body lotion, La Roche-Posay skin care, MAC powder, eye shadow and blush, etc.. These products work for me and I use them all the time. I guess I couldn´t live without my skin care, so that's that.

4. What´s your biggest regret?

That I didn't buy that cute brown aviator sunglasses, when I bought the other stuff on my latest purchase :) That´s a little regret. My biggest, hmm. That one is though. I love where I am now in life, I am happy. I guess if I changed something, things wouldn't turn out this way, so.. I really wouldn't change anything huge. But I would  be kinder/happier/more grateful in some past situations in my life. And I would advise to my past self to be kinder to her self. To have more confidence. Less insecurity.

5. What is better: Chocolate or ice cream?


Hmm.. chocolate ice cream? :P Blueberry/Raspberry Yogurt ice cream with chocolate dressing :D My final answer.

6. Name your celebrity crush.


It can´t be only one. NOP :) Ian Somerhalder. Gerard Butler. Kit Harrington. But I never like them before I see a great movie/TV series and they have a part with a great personality. Manly with sensitive side.

7. Name the countries you already visited and which is next one on your list?


I visited Hungary, Italy, Austria, Croatia (neighbouring countries, duh), Germany, France, Greece, England and Slovakia. I would love to visit Portugal and learn how to surf. 

8. What are two things you like about yourself.

It is king of hard to compliment yourself, isn´t it? Let´s get over it.. I like my legs and my skin tone. :)

9. Share your most embarrassing moment.

I am not going to tell you, will I? :P I had to think about that one. I admit, I am embarrassed a lot of times, when I see old photos of me. I didn´t like myself then and it takes me back in that time. But there is also funny embarrassed. AI had a few of these moments from my days of partying. :)

10. Favourite song?


Gavin DeGraw - Soldier. 
Always. 

11. What´s the craziest thing on your bucket list?

Once I would really like to have so much money so that I can buy my mom a new house and car. Get my grandparents their own apartment in that same house, and my sister too.. We had a lot of money problems and I would love to see my family to not have to worry about money. 
Also I want to have three kids and maybe adopt one day. And a 100 crazy wishes more.. :)



My Questions:


1.  If you had a chance to be one famous person for a day, who would you be and why?
2. Your dream travel destination and why?
3. Your best qualities are..
4. What would you do on your last day in life?
5. What is in your purse?

11 Facts about me :

1. I love to win. I am a sore loser. I try not to show it, though :)
2. I adore coffee. Black, with milk and no sugar. Latte Machiatto.
3. I joke a lot. I love to make people laugh.
4. I seem like a very social person, but in my heart I´m a loner. I am the happiest at home, with my family, my art, reading a book, listening to music, watching TV, going for a run - alone.

History of the Silent

Greetings,

here are the last photos of our photo shoot. I mean the last "official" photos. There are a lot more of them and maybe I will post them as /behind the scenes/, because I like a lot of them! :D Sometimes I am even smiling in them :) My sister made a huge deal about this, I CANNOT SMILE in these photos. CANNOT look happy. I know, I understand. Fashion. In real life I am joking and laughing a lot though.  

I miss vacation! I am fantasising about cold salty sea water, sand beaches, volleyball and cold drinks with little umbrellas :) I would love to go somewhere quiet and relaxing. Maybe next month. I will find a cheap deal for a little Getaway. I am checking out deal as I write :) The best thing for me NOW it would be to go to a hotel, so that I don't have  to cook or clean :) Also I want to be very near to the beach! I love swimming. I love Sea water. I love snorkeling. I love everything about "Sea" vacation :) In the mornings I would go for a run on the beach, drink yummy smoothies, eat a lot of watermelon and seafood. Yummm. Oh, my god, this is going to be awesome! I am sooo ready ;) 

Gosh, I don't have time to go yet. Work is to blame. Talk, talk, talk and no action. Next month. Definitely!

Oh, enough fantasising.. 

Here is the description of this collection:

Forgotten Shadows

Greetings,

what is it about these cloudy days that everyone looks so sad and grumpy? Hmmm.. Let´s blame the weather! I feel like that´s the main reason for everything these days. It has become this last resort, when people have nothing to talk about. Or no one to blame.. So here it goes..
The weather here is very moody these days and it looks like it has a weird effect on people. We are all moody. This is were this nice quote I like comes to mind:

"Women are not moody. We simply have days we are less inclined to put up with your shit."


OK, so in this exact moment I am in a very good mood. I am going home soon, I am having a great time living with my boyfriend on our own, I am happy. 

I have been thinking about something lately. I have these moments when I am doing something and I think: "WoW, I should really blog about this!" But then I remember, I have no photos of this. And then I am like, with no photos this would not be interesting. So I don't post a lot of great stuff! So sorry about this. So I decided I am going to write down, what I liked in the last two weeks:
1. I was at a Fashion Show
2. We had a cook out with my family, twice :) Well, once with my family and once with my boyfriends' family. It was so nice, one night we even had fire torches and a bonfire :) So awesome! 
3. I made a few litres of elderflower syrup with lemons. Yummy
4. I saw a great sunset in Ljubljana. It was on a windy day, the sky was blue, yellow and pink at the same time. I cannot even describe it. 
5. I went shopping! :) I should write a little haul post. I have a blast every time I go shopping.

OK, so that's that about my random thoughts.. Lets get serious; Here are the photos of Nina´s fourth winter coat.

At Castle Grey

Greetings,

how are you guys doing? I have been reading a lot of your posts last week and I enjoy a lot of them. I mean, there a just sooooo many.. I wish I had more time :) I love posts about cute interior design ideas, cute outfits and art. I loved this one post where someone painted their door bright yellow. It looks so cute, it makes me happy every time I look at it. I watched this movie last year - Safe Haven, where the girl painted the floor bright yellow. It looked so pretty and I had thoughts about doing something similar, but I haven't figured out yet what I want to paint over. But I will. And it will make me happy :)

OK, so here is part 3 of our photoshoot. We were shooting at a cemetery and a castle in my hometown. The locations were chosen by my sister and our photographer. They made really good choices. They are both very talented :)

Personally, I love this coat! It looks so great, the details are awesome. I mean, I'm no expert, but I really do like it. This black pants are also custom made. I am so proud of my sister, who knew she had it in her. Great work!
