THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FOR HIM

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FOR HIM
Hey, peeps! I don’t know about you but I still can’t believe that Christmas is just around the corner. I mean, it was summer like two weeks ago! Anyway, if you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet, don’t worry at all. I've spent a good amount of time in research of the BEST Christmas presents for HIM.

Just to clarify, I already got a present for my boyfriend (can’t tell you what it is as he’s stalking my blog too lol) but the products below are stuff that I’d personally consider buying if I didn’t spend my money on another gift already.  Oh well. Here we go (all the images are clickable):

1)  Apple Watch

I read through all the customer reviews and picked up this design as I like the colour and style of it, but I am sure that your partner/dad or son would appreciate any model. I’m not a tech expert, but c’mon, it’s Apple. (Btw if you’re wondering what to get ME for Christmas, you won’t get wrong with the 3rd series, rose gold one. Just saying.)


2)   Kindle Paperwhite E-reader


That’s the perfect gift for someone who loves reading and does it all the time! A single battery charge lasts weeks and the selection of e-books is massive. So handy, isn’t it?  


3) Magic Wallet


People say that you can judge a person by their shoes, but to me, personally, the small details are the ones that really matter. Like the quality and design of your wallet! How beautiful is this one though?


4) Ear Pro Studio Headphones



Does he live and breath with music? Well, he surely deserves to be treated with professional studio headphones like this. 

5) Last Technology Travel/Business Bag



I am not exactly the most practical person in the world, especially when it comes to accessories, but I gotta tell you, I was so impressed with this product after watching the video presentation on Amazon. That’s a really smart and stylish gift, that I bet your partner will use all the time.


6) High-Resolution Waterproof Action Camera




Oh boy, I don’t know about your boyfriend, but I would love to have this camera right now. (I am sure that Fil would want it too!) $69 seems like a great price for the value to me. Don't you agree?


7) Pawbo Life Wi-fi Pet Camera




Is your partner a massive pet lover but always away from home for business? Well, here’s a genius solution for him. 

(Psst, I need this life wi-fi pet camera in my life too! Missing my white Persian cat Puhhie so much..)


8) LumaGlo LED Crossbelt 




Another great idea for a Christmas present for him, if he’s an active person or has a dog to walk every evening. 


9) Home HD Movie Video Projector




My list is starting to getting too long, but there are so many incredible products out there that I want to share with you!! How amazing for example that indoor movie/theatre projector is? And it’s just 99$! YES, PLEASE.


10) Como Audio: Solo Wireless Music System with Internet Radio, Spotify, Wi-fi, FM, and Bluetooth



Okay, I’m getting really tempted in purchasing another gift for my boyfriend (and I really shouldn’t) so I will end up this list with this stunning music system and let you do your Christmas shopping. Don't take too long though, there's not a lot of time left!


I really hope that my list helped you a little bit with making a decision and don’t forget to sign up for my VIP members list to be the first to receive invitations for events, giveaways, and the newest blog content!

Have a lovely weekend! x


BIG NEWS: STARTING MY OWN CLOTHING LINE

BIG NEWS: STARTING MY OWN CLOTHING LINE

I’m so excited to share with you guys that I’m launching MY OWN CLOTHING LINE very soon.
I’ve had the idea of starting up a clothing business for two years now. Unfortunately, I faced so many obstacles along the way such as insufficient budget, wrong timing, lack of inspiration and so on and so forth. However, as I shared with you in my previous post, I quit my retail job about a month ago with no plan B or savings with the idea to dive in straight into the fashion industry and make it happen. I mean, if not now, when?!

I teamed up with the super talented illustrator Clementine Petrova - Art & Illustration to create something really personal and special, that I am sure, guys you are gonna love!

If you’re interested in keeping up with our journey of creating a brand from scratch, follow us on Instagram and Facebook. We’ll massively appreciate your support! 

I’m not allowed to give a lot of information out just yet, but I can give you my promise. You will be hearing of “I AM SAVVY” a lot. Because when I do things, I do them big. Keep your eyes peeled as the launch is very soon and the first collection is super limited! 

Have a lovely weekend!





Понеже ми писна да разчитам на съдбата за успех и реализация, реших да хвана нещата в мои ръце така, както само аз си мога. И най-сетне дойде моментът да споделя с вас върху какво работя през последните месеци! А именно, МОЙ СОБСТВЕН МОДЕН БРАНД в колаборация със супер талантливата Clementine Petrova, по-позната като Clementine Petrova - Art & Illustration. 

Идеята за собствена модна линия е вдъхновена изцяло от вас и нестихващия ви интерес относно ежедневните ми модни избори. Мечтаех от толкова много време да ви дам възможността да имате нещата, които самата аз нося и обожавам. Заедно с Цвети направихме тази мечта реалност.

Не мога да ви издам повече информация, но датата на пускане на колекцията ще бъде оповестена съвсем скоро във Фейсбук и Инстаграм страниците ни. Последвайте ни, защото бройката на артикули е лимитирана! (А знам, че всичко ще ви хареса много!)


Благодаря за подкрепата! :) 

NASTY GAL POP UP EVENT

NASTY GAL POP UP EVENT

About a couple of weeks ago, I did an article about how to be a fashion blogger. In today’s post, I’ll take you with me on a (visual) walk through the most exciting part of working as a blogger. Yep, I’m talking about the events we get to attend.

As a person who really likes spending their time at home and obviously not being great at working in a team environment for long periods of time, making the decision to quit my regular job without any savings or plan B turned out to be a pretty descent idea. True, my work desk now is my kitchen table, I've had to replace the Starbucks lattes with 2 in 1 Nescafe sachets, and my monthly budget for new garments goes directly to my landlord’s bank account, but hey! The time I have now for blogging, writing articles, taking photos, and covering events like this is absolutely worth all the sacrifices. And it starts paying off.


So the Nasty Gal pop-up event the other day was absolutely fantastic. I’m pretty sure that even Ed Westwick (the actor who plays Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl) would agree, as he was there too. The location? 3-4 Carnaby street, London. Want to see more photos? Follow me on Instagram and check my stories.

P.S. Today is the last day you can join my new giveaway in a collaboration with Claudia Schiffer Makeup! If you haven’t entered yet, click here to join.




Преди седмица-две направих наръчник за това как да бъдеш моден блогър, а в днешната публикация ще ви покажа аспекти от вълнуващата страна на тази професия. А именно, модните събития.

Като истински домошар и човек, на когото очевидно не му се отдава да работи дългосрочно в екип, решението да напусна работа, скачайки безстрашно с двата крака в блогърския свят без план Б и спестявания, се оказа необичайно добра идея.  Вярно, че работното ми бюро е кухненската ми маса, латето от Старбъкс е заменено с Нескафе 2 в 1 с кокосово мляко и бюджетът ми за нови дрехи, излизания и всякакви екстри напълно несъществуващ, но свободното време, което имам и мога да инвестирам в творчески дейности, като писане на блог публикации, бранд колаборации, фотосесии и присъствие на събития като това, е безценно. И все повече започва да се отплаща подобаващо. 

Събитието на Nasty Gal, на което бях в четвъртък беше страхотно! Дори самия Ed Westwick (Чък Бас от Gossip Girl) може да потвърди, защото беше там. Равносметката: нови запознанства, неопределен брой чаши шампанско, хубава музика, стари приятели и тонове снимки. Локацията: 3-4 Carnaby Street, London. 

За повече снимки, последвайте ме в инстаграм.

Хубава седмица на всички! 

ПП. Днес е последният ден, в който може да се включите в новия ми инстаграм giveaway в колаборация с Claudia Schiffer Makeup. Ако все още не сте се записали, кликнете тук.

SATURDAY VIBES

SATURDAY VIBES

I’ve been feeling so sleepy and lazy this morning, and I’m not sure whether to blame the weather for that or the fact it’s Saturday. Either way, I’m not going to write a long blog for you today, as the inspiration is not with me. So here’s an outfit idea for all of you who just want to feel comfy, cozy and warm, and can’t be bothered putting a lot of effort in, like me. 

Notting Hill is the place where these pics were taken and if you’re in London (or planning to visit it), that’s your spot for high-end instagrammable content. Remember, if you want to be a blogger, do what bloggers do.

Have a lovely weekend, peeps!



Днес ми е мързеливо, заспало и едно такова отвеяно, точно като времето отвън, затова не ми се пишат дълги текстове. Предполагам, че ако и вие се чувствате така, и на вас най-вероятно не ви се четат романи. Затова само споделям аутфит вдъхновение за такива като мен, на които не им се занимава и просто искат да им е топло, комфортно и (разбира се) естетически издържано. 

Също така, добавям и бонус -  ако имате път към Лондон и искате да се снимате на популярна в блогърския свят instagrammable локация за снимки, мястото е Notting Hill.

И бонус две (все пак е събота), ако не сте гледали филма Nothing Hill с Джулия Робъртс, гледайте го. Един от любимите ми филми е.

Хубав уикенд на всички!



HOW TO BE A FASHION BLOGGER

Sunday, November 5, 2017

HOW TO BE A FASHION BLOGGER

I often get messages with questions about how to start a blog and what the easiest way to be a fashion blogger is. So I decided to give you a short 10 steps guide how to become a (style) blogger.

1. Before everything else, you’ll need a lot of time, patience, a good wardrobe and a descent camera. If you don’t have money to spend on a professional camera, it’s fine, you can still use your phone as long as you’re good at editing. Remember, the quality of your content matters!

2. Pick a platform for your blog that is easy for you to use and is in sync with your personal aesthetics. The most common ones that bloggers use are Wordpress, Blogger and Squarespace. I’d personally recommend Blogger.

3. Spend some time on customizing your website. That’s your baby. How do you want to present it to the world? What’s its name? How do you want it to look like? All the platforms mentioned above are easy to set up and it doesn’t take a genius to do so. So, no excuses accepted! 

4. Make a list of posts that you’re going to publish in the first 4 weeks with dates, titles and everything. Stick to it! 

5. Find a friend who is willing to take photos of your outfits. C’mon, there should be someone out  there who wants to do that. No? It doesn’t need to be a photographer. No? Anyone? Okay then, check in Fiverr.

6. Now when you’ve got some published content, TELL EVERYONE about your blog! Yes, you heard me. EVERYONE. Your friends, family, work mates, the person, who’s queuing in the shop in front of you. Okay, maybe not the last one, but you got what I meant. E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E!

7. Repeat number 4 in the next few months until it becomes a habit.

8. Now, create an Instagram account and TELL EVERYONE ABOUT IT.

9. Start sharing your blog content on Instagram too on a daily basis. At least one photo per day. Everyday! (Don’t forget to use the accurate hashtags like #fashionblogger, #styleblogger, #ootd (outfit of the day), etc. Do some research on what your competitors use and work well for them! 

10. Congratulations! You are now a certified fashion/style blogger. 

Keep doing everything I just listed and you will start getting e-mails for collaborations as well as other benefits of being a blogger at some point. That’s a subject for another post though.

So to summarize, commit your time, passion and creativity on your new blog and be regular and persistent with your posts. Don’t give up or get disappointed if you don’t hit hundreds of likes or followers at first. Keep reminding yourself the reason you’re doing it for. (You must have a bigger reason that wanting to be social media famous otherwise unless of course, you are willing to spend A LOT OF MONEY on advertisements, you will give up easily at the very begging.) Learn from your successes and from your failures. And be patient. Your audience will notice your efforts. Just don’t give up.

Let me know if you found this information helpful and want to read more posts like that in the future.

Have a lovely week! x



Често получавам съобщения с въпроси “кажи ми как да си направя моден блог”, “какво се изисква от мен, за да бъда моден блогър”, “ще имам ли успех ако започна блог сега” и т.н. 

Затова в днешната публикация, ще ви дам списък със стъпки, които ще ви отведат най-бързо до желаната от вас цел да бъдете моден блогър.

1. Заредете се с време, търпение, добър асортимент от дрехи и хубав фотоапарат (или телефон с хубава камера. Моят в момента е iphone 7, но дълго време преди това използвах iphone 5S.)

2. Изберете платформа, в която ще списвате блога си. Опциите са много, но по мои наблюдения най-често използваните са Wordpress, Blogger и Squarespace.

3. Отделете време да персонализирате дизайна на уебсайта си. Всички изброени платформи в точка 2 предоставят готови и лесни за модификация темплейти. Не ви е нужна чужда помощ, може да се справите и сами!

4. Направете си списък с публикации за първия месец и се постарайте да го следвате. 

5. Намерете си доброволец фотограф (не е нужно да е професионален), който да ви снима.

6. КАЖЕТЕ НА ВСИЧКИ за блога си! (Тук визирам приятели, съученици, семейство. Не съветвам да притеснявате бабичките в трамвая или учителя ви по история. Но ако решите да рискувате, напишете ми в коментар как е завършил опитът!)

7. Повторете точка 4 и в следващите месеци, докато не се превърне в навик. 

8. Направете си Инстаграм профил и КАЖЕТЕ НА ВСИЧКИ ЗА НЕГО.

9. Започнете да споделяте съдържанието на блога си и в Инстаграм. Ежедневно.

10. Честито, вече сте сертифициран моден блогър. 

С времето ще започнат да валят и предложенията за колаборации, както и всички други екстри, които вървят с професията. (Но това е информация за отделна тема). 

Ако сте постоянни и влагате 100% креативност и желание в нещата, които публикувате, резултатите няма да закъснеят. Но най-важното е да не се отказвате. Не следете конкуренцията. Не се разочаровайте ако някоя снимка събере само 5 харесвания. Вместо това концентрирайте изцяло времето и вниманието си в това да предлагате все по-добро и по-добро съдържание. Учете се както от успехите, така и от грешките си. Усилията ви няма да останат незабелязани.

 Хубава седмица на всички! :)
