WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO


 I am not too sure who’s to blame for, whether the Mercury retrograde, the Universe or the vibrations of my own thoughts, but the begging of 2016 was not as spectacular for me as I wished to!

I recently caught myself setting goals too big, which seem quite impossible to be accomplished right away, and as I’m not a very patient person, this feeling, or shall I say fear, of impossibility, has been literally breaking my spirit down.  

Don’t know if you are reading the same books I read, but I’m starting to believe more and more that our mental and physical health is fundamentally linked and when our mind suffers, our body suffers too.

At least, that explains why I had to deal with migraines, fever, stress and a serious mental block the whole January. I've been ill before, you see, having a fever or a headache is not a big deal, but when it lasts for a month, it’s hard to maintain a positive attitude. Especially, when you’re trapped in a creative rut, as well! 


Anyway, January has gone and, thank God, as quickly as disappeared my self-motivation appeared again! It's weird, I just woke up one morning and I was not as upset anymore! This time, I decided, I needed a plan to stay focused and inspired for longer periods and keep a positive attitude even when I don’t feel like it.

So it’s been about two weeks now since I've started some home yoga practices, weekly acupuncture sessions, listening to some relaxing music, added more healthy choices to my meals, and overall been trying to do stuff that makes me happy and satisfied. Guess what! My plan actually seems to be working!

I am not too sure who’s to blame for, whether the (end of) Mercury retrograde, the Universe or the vibrations of my own thoughts, but know one thing for sure – birds flying high, sun in the sky and my soul dances again inside my body. 


I can't predict anything, but I do have a feeling February is going to be good.     


Sunday in stripes

Pinafore dress & Top: Topshop
Bag: Ted Baker
Sneakers: Schuh

A few weeks ago someone asked me on Facebook, if I can publish more posts with casual outfit ideas suitable for everyday. Well, it really depends on the weather, but when it's nice and not too cold outside, like today, I personally go for more girly stuff like skirts, crop tops and dresses, comfortable shoes, preferably sneakers, and a big handbag, where I can put all my essentials. When the weather is chilly, all my oversized jumpers, long cardigans, high waisted jeans, scarves and coats come to help. 
What about you, my readers? What's your idea of a perfect casual outfit? 


Някой преди време ми изпрати съобщение във фейсбук с молба да покажа как изглеждам в ежедневието си, когато не съм на работа, в по-небрежна обстановка. Удобен непретенциозен тоалет, голяма чанта, побираща всичките ми нужни и ненужни атрибути, и обувки, в които стъпалата ми тържествуват, са определено задължителна необходимост за мен. Когато температурите навън са благоприятни, като днес, залагам на по-girly дрехите като рокли, поли и сукмани, а когато градусите клонят към нулата, прибягвам към дългите топли пуловери, жилетки, дънки с висока талия, шалове и въобще яко наслояване, докато не се почувствам готова да се изправя срещу коварното британско зимно време.

Cold never bothered me anyway

Coat: Yoins
Top: Topshop

Quick Sunday update! Wearing my new amazingly comfortable coat from Yoins makes me feel like the Queen of the town. No wind, no cold, nothing can throw me down! I decided to pair it with black denim jeans, knitted striped top and finished the look with white platform sneakers to keep it simple casual and classy! 

What do you think about this combo? I'd be really happy, if you let me know in the comments form below! 

Wishing you all a great week! 



Изглежда, че и през 2016-та ще остана вярна на последната си модна мания - дългите палта, като този път бях в настроение за по-спортни и смели комбинации от миналия път, и реших да съчетая новата си страхотна придобивка от Yoins (с две ръце препоръчвам уебсайта!) с плетен пуловер на райе, черни класически дънки с висока талия и бели гуменки на платформа. За да подсиля небрежния акцент на визията, вързах косата си на висока опашка, което всъщност е прическата, с която напоследък мога да бъда видяна най-често. 

Наистина ще се радвам да разбера дали комбинацията ви хареса във формата за коментари под публикацията!

Успешна и продуктивна седмица на всички!   

xoxo,
