My Favorite Things in London

IMG_5002

If you had asked me two years ago if I would lead the life I currently lead, I wouldn’t have even been able to imagine the possibility and would have laughed at the thought. I was just a (fabulous if I dare say) girl in NYC, working 6-7 days a week, meeting girlfriends for trips to the beach and subconsciously trying not to focus on all the bad dates and constant worry I would be alone forever (haha) when I met Dragan at a rooftop bar for 3 minutes, not recognizing that moment would change my path forever. Then, several months later, making the conscious decision to take another path and move to Europe and marry this man. Voilà and here I am, and I’ve been so lucky to travel to my favorite place on a regular basis. In fact, I had never been to London when I met Dragan, but I had always dreamed of it, often speaking in a British accent for days on end and to my friends’ chagrin. 🙂

Now, I go to London often, and while I am no expert, I wanted to share my favorite things thus far. Read more

Geneva in Stripes

IMG_4746IMG_4754Hello! I’m really excited for this post because it combines my love of fashion with my love of Architecture, as the shots were taken in some stunning locations.

I originally wanted to post this dress in 2 ways, taking it from day to night, but Friday became quite cold and 5 minutes before leaving to shoot the post, I realized I would freeze to death! Read more

Making Friends as an Expat

IMG_4626   
I’ve been thinking today about how much happier I am since making some really wonderful friends! I touched on this on my last post, but some days I can’t believe the change. Of course, I’m still homesick quite often, but I’m starting to finally get my bearings, feel at home, and actually LIKE living here! Making friends in a new culture isn’t always easy, so I’ve thought of some good tips and I realized I should have been better in the past on doing these things as well. Read more

Valentine’s Lips and My Favorite Accessories!

IMG_2946

Hello! Does anyone have any big plans for Valentine’s Day?? I know I did a post already, but I really love this Holiday, and wanted to do another showing my favorite lipstick colors to wear, as well as a few accessories and gift ideas. I even did a little video lipstick tutorial on creating the perfect red lip. I love Valentine’s because there are flowers and chocolate everywhere (who DOESN’T love that) and because it’s nice to have an incentive to go a little further into showing our loved ones how we feel. Yes, we should do it everyday, but I’m a romantic, and I like to be spoiled (even if I’m spoiling myself) and I LIKE it, dag gone it. 🙂

Getting Organized

IMG_2518

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great day and feeling fantastic as we sail into the middle of our week.
I’m a pretty organized person, but I tend to keep track of it all in my head, so I wanted to get a planner to help me keep track on PAPER. Paper…….that illusive object we hardly ever use anymore, as we hold everything we need in our smartphone……but that I find suits my mind much more. I find it soothing to write things in paper and I enjoy pretty patterns and beautifully colored pens. I really enjoy browsing through luxe paper stores, as I appreciate the attention to detail as well as the effort to making ordinary things beautiful! After some searching, I have found the perfect planner and they come from Erin Condren.

Although she offers many products, I chose to buy a Life Planner on her website I cannot begin to explain how wonderful these organizers are to own!!! Packed with all you need as well as an array of additions such as stickers and extra notepads, personalized monograms, gift cards and inspirational quotes. I LOVE it!
I love how pretty it is and how excited I feel to pull it out in public, as I customized mine with a wedding photo on the back, as well as sitting down to plan over a cup of coffee! I’m enamored with writing in my notepad with as it is lined with flowers and has my name on across the top, and I can’t express how freeing it feels to be organized and have all my notes, addresses, events and plans in one spot!

Check out Erin Condren! You will feel so special when it arrives at your door in stunning packaging, I promise you won’t regret it!

Let me know if you have one already or if you like the different patterns on her website! Shop Here!
