LAST WEEKEND

Last weekend we had an idea to spend the day by the sea. I was very excited because I didn't spend a day by the sea this summer and I love car rides so this would be a great way to end the week. We almost cancelled this little trip because of the rain but I am so glad we decided to go though. 

We started our trip with stopping by the gas station and picked up some coffee (plus I want to mention that I met my favorite latvian actor, just casual thing, haha). After that we drove outside the city and saw little Wok&Burger place we had on our to-do list for so long. Of course, we couldn't skip it as we didn't rush anywhere and it was perfect time to stop by. 

We ordered burgers and I tried vegetarian burger for the first time and I loved it. I wasn't even scared of the egg in the burger as it's one of the least favorite combinations of mine. I loved this place, atmosphere was so cozy, people here were very polite and food was the best.

Funny fact: Since we are on our healthy journey I made avocado salad so we could have a good snack on the trip but we didn't even tried it since we had delicious and pleasant meal at this place. (AND I DON'T REGRET IT!!)


When we arrived to this place, I felt so calm and happy. Beach was almost empty, just some people were there. I feel like sea has its own magic at each season. In fall, it seems to be so calm and quite, even though it fills you with so much energy and inspiration. I enjoyed slow walks by the sea, just thinking about stuff and capturing beautiful scenery.


I am so happy we decided to spend the day outside even though it was raining. As I mentioned in this post about fall - nature is so beautiful in this season and it gives me motivation to go outside everyday and enjoy weather no matter what.

I hope you find fall as inspiring and beautiful as it actually is!

I LOVE FALL?

While weather outside is so unpredictable, I wanted to share my thoughts on why I think I finally fell in love with fall. Just year ago I would say that I hate this season as it would rain everyday because how can you enjoy such a cold and gray weather. This year I have different thoughts.

First of all, fall makeup will always be my favorite. Fall is the most perfect season for both - nude looks and dark looks, and of course both matched. I love, love, love dark, vampy lips & smokey eyes, that's why I created my first this year's fall makeup in dark shades. I am also obsessed with bronze-brown-orange eye shadows right now and I feel like you can't enjoy fall to the fullest (well, you can, there are lots of amazing things happening in fall) without bronzed eye look, at least for me, it is my go to look!
Second thing - I love coziness inside, underneath warm blanket when weather outside is changing every hour. That perfect feeling when you listen to your favorite music or watch an amazing movie and have warm drink by your side. I started to appreciate those cold days because you have so much more time to yourself and who doesn't love to relax and enjoy it, right?

And nature.. oh my god, it is so beautiful everywhere. Leaves keep falling, in some places it looks more colorful then in summer and rain isn't bothering me anymore. When you find beauty in these little things, everything feels good and you want to be outside all the time!





Finally, Halloween is in fall and that happens to be one of my favorite holidays. I've been living in a Halloween mood for a while. My October consists of Halloween movies, searching for the perfect decorations on Pinterest and of course, Halloween makeup looks. (yeah, and I wish I had that pumpkin mask, haha)


What about you? Do you enjoy fall?

AVOCADO EGG SALAD


Hello guys! It's been a while since I posted something. I've had lots of things on my mind and it has been hard to focus on the blog. There are days when I am super motivated and want to do million thigs at once and there are days when I don't even want to get up. After battling with these mood swings, I am feeling a little bit better and want to finally focus on creativity, holidays and everything that makes me happy. Therefore, I have some ideas for posts and with all the Halloween madness I can't wait to share some looks I've put on makeup charts.

Anyway, I wanted to share today's meal that made me happy, haha! I made this avocado salad for the first time and I am obsessed. It's healthy and very tasty!!!




There are so many recipes for avocado salads but after this I don't need to look for another one for a while. This avocado salad is quick and easy to make and it keeps you full as long as other good meals.

For one portion of salad I used 1/2 avocado, some spinach leaves, 2 eggs, little bit of feta cheese, cucumber, few small tomatoes and two small onions. I also added few drops of balsamico dressing. Of course you can add more veggies or cheese if you want or skip some ingredients. Salads are all about mixing and finding the best combination. 

I also made greek yogurt dressing to add moisture to salad. I combined yogurt with spinach leaves, few garlic gloves and half an avocado.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COCO

It's Coco Chanel's birthday today and I want to dedicate today's post to this inspirational person.

As soon as I got interested in fashion, she's been an inspiration. The woman I've been admiring my whole life. Everybody knows how amazing she was and how she changed fashion. 
Besides that, she was incredibly strong and powerful woman, her sayings are one of the best guides to live a beautiful life.
On the occasion of icon's 133rd birthday, I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes.

“The best things in life are free. The second-best are very expensive.”

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little—if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

“My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.”

“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.”

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

“Dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy today.”
