Minimalist Living -March

Time for another minimalist wardrobe update – March edition! πŸ™‚

I’ve been quite busy this month because my parents were visiting. Hopefully, you’ve been following me on my Instagram. If not, there is a link on the side, please follow! πŸ™‚

Here us what I wore. I can definitely recognize the repeats.

Favourite dark blue and black Primark skinny jeans. Love them!

Weather was weird so I did wear some sweaters. Really like this golden one. When I saw it, the first thing that I thought of was Christmas dinner! Don’t know why. x) I like it because it doesn’t take much effort. Looks nice on it’s own. What do you think?

image

Classic also by now. Short sleeved black T-shirt. A must staple! I also wore this cool black and green mesh T-shirts.

image

Black coat and blazer – definitely a good investment.

And some shoes and accessories. Of course, my beautiful Startas, too! ^^
So this is it.

How is your minimalist wardrobe going?

Wish List Hair Tie Bracelet

I’ve been to Miracle Gardens in Dubai and they’ve done this great thing where they added a place for butterflies (post on that a bit later – it is amazing)! Omg!!! *.* So perfect!
I have so many selfies, it’s not healthy! X)

But, I noticed my hair ties look tacky on my arm. I always have them because I can’t stand having my hair down for too long, but it’s not so nice to see them especially if you’re dressed up a little bit.

And then I saw this! *.*

How classy does that look?! πŸ˜€

Original idea came from Maria Shireen and it was actually designed by her husband as a present for her! How thoughtful! And he solved problems of million women around the world at the same time! πŸ˜€
Prices go from 45-85$.

I also found an Etsy seller called The Bangle Bear and you can find a set of 3 bracelets for 30$! Great price! And you can even find stainless steel ones!
Here is what they look like:

What do you think?
Anyone has one? What are you impressions?
I’m going to get one! πŸ˜€

Decorating on a Budget

Classic story. Feel tired, go to bed, brain starts working overload, can’t sleep. I know I’m not the only one, right?!
Thinking about my living room. Me and my room mates don’t actually use it, but if it looked nicer, maybe we would.
Take a look.

Not particularly inviting, I know. And you can see my Christmas tree! Hahahahaha x’D
Blank canvas. The thing is, our company owns the apartment so we can’t make any drastic changes. We have to leave the place like we found it, otherwise they charge us. And we don’t wanna invest a lot of money because we all know this is just temporary for us.

What to do then??? :s

Go to Pinterest! Hhh Yaaaay!
Anyone who’s been following me knows I love DIYing and naturally I already have a board just for that.
I have a couple of ideas what I could do, I just have to plan it carefully so I don’t end up with a bunch of stuff that don’t go well together.
I won’t say yet what my plans are, but they are in progress!

So if you guys want to see how to decorate your living room with little to no budget – stay tuned!
Like and follow!
And, of course, suggestions are welcomed!
Inspiration is everywhere! πŸ˜‰
Be well!

A Day in Zurich

Hi everyone!
I’m writing to you from my nice and comfty hotel bed. I am sooo tired, but thought I’d just share some pics from today.

Landed in the afternoon and just went out for a walk and dinner. Thought it was gonna be colder, but it was just fresh let’s say.

It was a beautiful day! People were out and about, tourists taking tours (gotta do that next time!), drinking coffee in cafes next to the river… You can feel spring coming! ^^

The main shopping street Bahnhof Straße is not that much interesting, but if you go to the little streets on the side you’ll see they have much more charm and cute little shops.

And for the last picture, let’s not forget about the foodies! πŸ˜‰ We found this little place, which was actually empty, but we were so hungry we didn’t care. Inside was an old grandpa that was serving us. We spoke to him in English, he answered back in German. All the time! So cute! Explaining the whole menu in German like we understand! XD But it didn’t matter! We understood each other perfectly! And we made the right choice! Home made food and wine! What more can you ask for?!

Anyone been to Zurich? How did you like it? Next time when it’s warmer, I want to rent a bike and do a boat tour! πŸ˜€

For My Ladies – Mooncup

First things first – if you’re a guy, you probably won’t be interested in this. But you could learn something new! πŸ˜‰ Fair warming.
I got my Mooncup today!

I didn’t try it yet, but actually can’t wait to do so!

I found out about it by accident when I was reading blogs here on WordPress about minimalist living. I thought Wow, how come I didn’t hear about it earlier?! Everyone knows about pads and tampons, but when I talked to my friends not one of them heard about the menstrual cup! :/

Although it’s apparently been around since 1930s, it sounds new and revolutionary to me!

Why I decided to try it?

  • Eco friendly – it is reusable and it can last you for years
  • Money saver – since it lasts for years you don’t need to buy new one each month
  • Simplicity – it is just one thing, reusable and more hygienic

Once I started googling and you tubing it, I realized there is a whole community of ladies out there who use it and talk about it! I found out so many useful information.

Here is a link of a lovely young lady who does videos about alternative hygienic products like cups and reusable pads. I love her! So young, no taboos, she talks freely and with no inhibitions. I learned so much from her! Her channel is called Precious Star Pads.

After researching about it I found out they actually sell it in my home country so a friend got it for me. It was around 32$.

Are any of you using it? What are your experiences with it! Leave a comment!

If you want to see how it goes for me, I will be writing about it again once I’ve used it, so press follow and stay tuned! =)

Wish List Blazer Cape

I am probably a little late on the trend, but this blazer cape is amazing! ❀

It’s by a designer called Nana Wax. She does wonderful African inspired clothing. I just love it!

I know that from my capsule wardrobe posts, it doesn’t seem like it, but I actually LOVE colours. Especially african print and inspired fashion. It is beautiful and bold.

So check her out. This cape goes for 120€. Too pricey for me, but I can dream, hey?! πŸ˜‰ Also, 5% of he profits, they donate to charity. Good to know!

What are your wish lists for now? Leave a comment!
Be well! =)

OOTD Boyfriend Sweater

I went to Dublin, but I forgot to pack a sweater. Luckily, I bought my boyfriend one and packed it so I wore his.
It was unexpected, but turned out really well! The sweater is so comfy I wish I bought one for myself! Then we could do the couple look with the same thing! X’D
I combined it with leggings, brown booties and a colourful necklace to break the monotony of black and grey and make it more fun. I think any statement necklace would work with this or anything else that would add a touch of femininity. I also wore a grey beanie.
