Mood board for January

page.jpg

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).

New year, new beginning, new changes!

First of all, new schedule! Now I am posting every Monday ( or at least trying to post every Monday)!

On winter break I got hooked on this new TV series Conviction! It is soooo good!

When we are on the subject of TV series I have to mention one of my new favourite shows Quantico and its leading lady Priyanka Chopra.

This winter I got into wearing beanies and scarves! Got a new beanie for Christmas from someone special and I have been wearing it everywhere. Just take a look at my instagram, you’ll see.

I don’t think I ever told you that I cannot possibly sleep with my socks on, not even in the coldest winter days.

I sometimes forget how much I actually know about egyptian mythology.

I noticed that I buy too much shirts with written stuff on it. And I am not mad about it!

Since I am in a look for the perfect prom dress I decided to keep up with this Award season watching the red carpet presented by E! .

Feelings

A lot of people run away from their own feelings, including myself and maybe you – the person reading this. Running away can be detected in various ways. You can pretend what you are feeling isn’t real. Also, you can refuse to fathom your feelings, to split it to their essence. Of course you can always literally run away from your feelings. You can “block” yourself from feeling something, or better said, you can block yourself from showing those feelings.

It’s a shitty world, I know. Everyone wants to protect themselves from getting emotionally hurt. But think about it, if you do these things to prevent yourself from getting hurt, feeling hurt, pain, sadness, unhappiness etc. you are also limiting the amount of great feelings that make our life worth living.

Tears are not just from sadness, are they? Laughing or smiling isn’t always a showcase of a happy emotion. Pain isn’t necessarily bad. Forget now for just a second what you learned about positive and negative emotions and feelings. Life is about finding exceptions to the rules. No one should go through life looking it in black and white, defining something as purely good or purely bad without any mix between those contrasted emotions. So dare to feel.

I think this is enough said about this topic, and I hope I left you wanting to think about what I said here. If you want to add something or even tell me I am wrong, I welcome you to do so in the comments bellow.
Thank you for reading!

What’s in my bag? / Bag essentials

img_3082

img_3079

So this is the lovely Nohaa bag I talked about in my last Outfit Inspiration post! I love it so much because it burgundy and it is very spacious, you can see from the photos all of the things that I can fit in it. This is the biggest handbag I own so I really use up all the space it offers. Today I am going to talk about my bag essentials through a What’s in my bag post! I will start from left to right describing the things on the photo.

Wallet, money and cards.
This Guess wallet has been my best friend for almost a year. I got it whilst I was in Venice and it has already been featured in so many posts. It is black and leather, a timeless combination. I know that if you carry a handbag you do not really need a big wallet inside but I like to do that nonetheless and this bag offers me the possibility to do that!

Mascara
You never know what can happen to ruin your makeup so I always like to put some makeup in my bag. This is my new favourite mascara from Maybelline. It is The Colossal Go Extreme! Leather Black mascara. I am not going to describe it any more since I plan to do a full review soon.

Lip balm
It is my favourite Baby Lips Electro in Berry Bomb from Maybelline. I like to keep this in my bag because my lips can get dry and I like to put it over any lipstick I already have on to make it a bit glossy and more durable.

Lipstick
You always need to reapply your lipstick so I also keep my favourite lips of the season in the bag aswell as m lip balm. Sometimes I just put the lipbalm over the lipstick to make my lips look better but sometimes I need to reapply the lipstick first. Girly problems 😀 Right now my favourite lipstick is Maybelline’s COLORsensational in 342 Mauve Mania. It’s a darker pink, perfect for everyday and occasion.

Mirror
For reapplying your makeup or just taking a look at what a mess you are, you are going to need a little pocket mirror. This was a souvenir from my aunt, she got it for me from Rovinj. I like the little design on it and the fact that it has a regular and magnifying mirror.

Compact powder
I have oily skin and after some time my face is so shiny that I don’t even know how people can look at me as I am shining like a Christmas bulb. That is the reason why I keep this compact powder from Catrice in my handbag. It is the All Matt shine control powder in 015 Natural Beige!

Hair ties and bobby pins
I like to have my hair up when I am at home because my hair irritates me often. So when I am going out I always throw some hair ties and bobby pins if I ever decide to pull my hair up if it just gets too much for me to handle.

Planner
This is the year I decided to be a little more organized and to keep my planner by my side at every time. This is the most famous Croatian planner that comes in a few different looks. It is called zenskirokovnik (translated to womensplanner) on instagram so you can check their page out!

Earphones
Music is an important part of my life and my earphones are a necessity. It helps me get somewhere faster and get through my anxiety attacks so I always keep them near. These are the original Iphone earphones from Apple in their packaging.

Pen
There are just somethings that you always need to keep with you so I always carry a pen, nonetheless if I have my planner or not. That way if you are in a coffee shop and want to do some crosswords you do not need to ask the cute waiter/waitress for a pen. This one was a Christmas present and it is a Gorjuss pen.

Gum
Also a necessity that I think you always need to carry with you. This pack is great because it is a mini Airwaves pack that is so cute and so perfect for a handbag, it has 4 gums instead of 8 which I think is enough.

So this is it for my bag essentials. I hope you enjoyed reading this and that you find at least a bit useful or amusing.

As promised here is the second Outfit Inspiration this post, a week after the last one. Also I ‘promised’ you photos of lesser quality than usual since the camera kind of tricked me, but it is still visible enough when edited. Enjoy in this post nonetheless!

This outfit is really one of my favourite ones yet. It is kind of grunge but romantic grunge, at least that is how I perceive it. It has the smallest amount of black I ever wore and it still looks dark enough that I do not feel weird wearing COLOURS  😮 .

First we will start with this awesome and simple shirt/sweater from Bershka I just bought a couple of weeks ago. What is striking is its colour, never owned anything like it. With what my vocabulary allows me, the best I can do to describe it is to say it is a salmon pink colour. On it is written My Fav’ Sweat which I found adorable. It is warm and pretty, a good catch for winter.

Finally, I found chokers I like. These two are also from Bershka and they were in a set of five chokers total. I love it layered like this because it adds the grunge effect I talked about in the beginning and it makes this OOTD look like I spent a lot of time deciding what to wear when in fact it is just the opposite. It is probably worth mentioning I got them as a Christmas gift from my Fav’ person. You get the tittle know ?

In the spirit of new things let’s talk about my new jacket. It is from Zara and it is perfect! I didn’t own any really warm jackets before this one, so when it got too cold for my coat I ran to Split to buy one. This babe is so warm, in it has some faux fur and it has a filling. Also something that is so useful, the material outside is waterproof so rain just slides off. Great investment.

Also my jeans are from Zara. A perfect colour and the perfect fit. Already mentioned in previous posts so I am not going to go in details again. These boots from Schuh have been mentioned in previous posts as well, so all I am saying they are in perfect condition after almost 2 year since its real leather.

And now about the new addition to my accessories collection. This beautiful bag was also a gift from Christmas from one of the designers herself. Nohaa is a Croatian brand you all should check out, they have awesome stuff! They have an instagram and Facebook page, I am not sure but I think they do international deliveries aswell. Not an ad, even though I am not so biased since I actually know the duo that create them. The bag is burgundy and you get two leather tassels that you can put on both sides of the bag but I opted for only one!

For more day-to-day looks, makeup and other be sure to follow me on my two instagrams (links on the right side and/or under this). Also for previews of my posts and notices about when something is out! Thank you for reading, I’ll see you in my next post and I for sure hope you are going to be there again!!
