Hello friends! How are you? I've been really busy lately. Today I went to my job after 3 free weekends. So I'm back on old track. My weekends mostly steals all of my free time. After hangouts and work I'm soooo tired that I prefer to do nothing but just lay in front of tv and watch cartoons or movies. It's November 30th and Christmas time is coming. I've to do so many things before Christmas holidays: concert, theater, spa & major thing is school. I've to do so many tests which I missed when I was in Egypt. So fingers crossed and good luck for me! :) And if we're talking about Egypt.. I wanted to share with one more post: Egpyt through (my) Instagram! Hope you'll enjoy it!
Christmas Wishlist by happinessvictim featuring wall tattoos
Hey sweetz! How are you? I feel ill, so after posting this I'm going straight to bed! I wanted to make this post about three amazingly inspiring books I haven't read (yet) but it took me about 2 hours to decide how this post is going to look at the end. I found all three books and information about them *I wanted to educate you guys.. joking* and then I wanted to share with those lovely photos I found on google and explain why do I want to own these books. When I started to work with all the info I had, suddenly I had another idea which would let me put all three together so photo of it would look prettier so I decided to make this set on polyvore. Of course those books looked lonely there so I added few another accessories.. And that's how this Christmas wishlist was made! I also added few flowers because today I felt like it.
If we're talking about point this post was about:
#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso (founder of Nasty Gal)
IT by Alexa Chung
Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso (founder of Nasty Gal)
IT by Alexa Chung
Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
I'm happy that one of these gifts I already have been asking for, so there is a big chance that I'm going to own #GIRLBOSS very soon. And I'm most curious about it as well! I've been wanting IT by Alexa Chung for so long, but about Girl Online I just found out today! Both of these books I'm going to buy by myself. As I love fashion world and how it's growing online as well I think that these books will inspire me singly by theirselves.
Hey friends! How is it going? I'm sharing with this post quickly, because I'm going outside to work a little bit at home, after that I'm thinking about arranging my wardrobe, also need to do my homework and tidy up work space as well. Now I'm sitting here and thinking what else can I say to you. I don't even know what's going on in my life. Friday night was good, sat at friends place and drank beer, later went to nearest pub to dance a little bit and then I went home. It was little bit slick because of snow outside so going home took about 30 minutes instead of 15. In the Saturday morning I woke up and had to go to school. Had hangover. But it was OK by the end of day. Today I feel like human and I want to live my life again so I'm having strength to do all the things I said that I'm going to do. Hope everyone one is having great Sunday as well. :)
Today I decided to share with few things I recently got. Nothing big, but few faves. Also I'm sorry about bad photos, I'm shitty photographer and it was getting dark outside. Also I switched on flash but it didn't work...
1. Moomin pajamas from Reserved. It was a gift from my best-bestfriend. I'm really happy about because it super cute. Also I never buy pajamas for myself. I sleep in pajamas only when it's winter time and it's cold under few blankets. And mostly I wore those ones that my mom got me when I was about 14, 15 y/o. It probably sounds miserable or funny, but as at that age I was as tall as I'm right now and nobody except my family see me in those old pajamas - I don't care. Even recently I've been thinking about buying new pajamas.. So I'm really happy about this one! Thank you a lot Lāsma!
2. Original Source Coconut shower gel. I got this as a gift as well. I love coconut scent and this shower gel vegan, so it's a positive thing. It's not like I can't use shower gel which is not vegan, but I better buy vegan one.
3. Muller lavender candle. Everytime I'm going in shop I have to check out candles they offer. When I saw this one I knew that I need it. Lavender scent is relaxing and lovely by itself. Can't wait to light it up.
*Beautiful white flowers received as a gift as well. They smell wonderful and usually I keep them on window sill, so it was beautiful to wake up one morning and see everything white outside of winter and white flowers next to that sight. Lovely.
Oh, finally I feel like myself! First day on school after so long break, perfect dinner with my best, best baby with gifts and great talk and I feel like I'm back on track. As I promised today I'm showing photos from Egypt. Of course nobody cares about my thoughts, but everyone likes photos, haha! It's all good my friends, enjoy:)

Hey! Hope you all are having good time. As I promised in this post I'm sharing my thoughts about my vacation in Hurghada, Egypt and things that I did.
After long flight and playing with kids in plane we're so exhausted. Also we drank about two bottles of Jagermeistar so we arrived pretty drunk. When we got to the airport we had to buy visas and take our luggage. And then we're going to our bus who took us to our hotel Serenity Makadi heights. Overall it took about 2 hours to do all the stuff and going to the hotel was about 30 minutes long trip. We got our room after long discussion and flirting with receptionist and finally we had time to rest! We ate dinner together with friends and in the evening we with our sister went to our room and packed our stuff carefully so our room was tidy. We went to the balcony, smoked some cigarettes and watched a film on TV. It was chilly evening with actual doing nothing.
On Sunday we went to beach. Weather was perfect and I enjoyed every moment I spent there: sun, Red Sea, Arabic music around. As I don't know how to swim (I've mentioned this fact before, but just in case if you've missed it) I didn't get in the water to swim or snorkeling. But I did get in the water with those funny slippers which protects you from injuries. And I saw beautiful sea stars, little crabs in their beautiful shell houses and corals. Red Sea is the cleanest sea in the world and it's such a beauty! Sun goes down about 5 o'clock and that means that moment later it's already dark outside and it's chilly. Every evening we went to dinner, drank cocktails and ate good meals. Me & my sister after dinner usual went upstairs to catch some wi-fi, so we could contact with family and friends. But they got really bad connection... I think it's like that in whole country... But actually, who needs wi-fi when you're living in such a paradise?
Monday was the same as Sunday, but on Tuesday we went to Hurghada. We went to boat which had glass bottom of it, so we saw colorful fishes, coral reefs and even shark! It was fake one.. But it was great joke as well! On the boat there was one guy who made photos of everyone, he was such a clown! He smiled and joked all the time & it was so nice to talk with him. After our trip with boat we went to the hotel, had some time to change and in the evening we went back to Hurghada, to sea food restourant! It was Lāčplēša day so we decided to celebrate it in the restourant. We were 12 latvians -> one big table on which we decided to put on mini Latvias flag and candle. It was great evening with no alcohol! Actually I was happy that we didn't drank anything, because days before we drank everything they gave us, because cocktails was for free.
The rest of the days we spend in our hotel, we didn't go to Hurghada or anywhere else, because it isn't safe to go there for tourists... At least that's what we heard. We drank cocktails next to the pool, we went to the beach but mostly we ate food they gave us :D Everything included - breakfast, brunch (it was not like brunch with about 11-12 AM they opened bar next to the beach and there was hotdogs, pasta, etc so it was second chance to eat if you had missed breakfast), lunch & dinner. And they gave us pretty good food if you ask me. You will not starve there! And if we talk about fruits.. We bought mango in Hurghada and it tasted like heaven. The best thing I've ever ate! For real. Back to the point - almost every night we went to our friends room to drink wine and talk.
The best day was the last night in our hotel. Egypt warmed my heart for ever. We went to the shopping arcade to buy some souvenirs and sweets for our family. Firstly we went to bracelet shop because we had to buy some for us and there was guy who was really calm and pleasant as a person. He wasn't like other guys there. But he just watched that shop because it was friends of his, so we decided to wait for real owner, so we went to clothing shop where we bought dresses, then we wen't to the souvenir shop where we bought sweets and souvenirs. The guy who worked said that I'm the prettiest here this week. I said: Oh.. Well that's bad! I was thinking about month, not week! And we laughed. When we leaved he said that each of us can have one magnet for free! It was so nice from him! Then we went to the tea shop where we buyed some tea and worker there wanted me to try out some oil on my arm.. So it all ended with my on his sofa (my sister and aunt went to other shops) and he made mix of oils which he massaged on my face. Actually it was really nice and relaxing!!!! And he was nice to me!!! But all my make up and clean hair... We had dinner like after 30 minutes! OK, when that procedure was over the guy that was in bracelet shop before said that he have something for us. He owned papyrus shop. He told us interesting stories about anciet Egypt, he showed us drawings on papyrus and then switched of lights and everything in his shop was in fluorescent color, like actual drawing meant something else.. It was amazing. Then he gave us papyrus bookmarks with our zodiac signs and drawed our named in anciet Egypt language. While he did that he told us little bit about hisself and I've to say that I haven't met such a great young man in my life! I hope his going to be fine and his dreams will come true! Fingers crossed Mahmoud.
In the last day we sunbathed a little bit and then we signed out from our hotel.. I felt really sad. It was just a week, but I love to travel around the world and I love to get know new places and people. I already became attached to Egypt... So last days I'm feeling tired and unhappy. There are moments when I'm feeling great, but overall everything just sucks. And since I arrived I'm having mini anxiety attacks every night. That's why I hate to be home...
So that's how I spent my vacation! I'm going to share with photos later, I've been working on this post about 2 hours now. I'm thinking about posting photos tomorrow! See you guys. :)*
I'm home! How are you? I'm OK. I don't know but most of all already knows that I don't like to be home. I just don't know why but it doesn't feel right here. If we're talking about Egypt.. Such a beautiful place.. Already dreaming about next time visiting Hurghada in Egypt. About my vacation I'm going to talk later (you can expect about 2 posts because I love to talk about my trips and emotions, haha)! I just wanted to let you know that I'm good, I'm home and everything is fine! It's holiday tomorrow and Wednesday as well! Tomorrow I'm going to celebrate my name day which is on 19th November and right now seems that Wednesday I'm going to have some free time, so wait for photos and lot of stuff to read! :) For those who have to go to work / school tomorrow - have a great day and smile!
Hey! How are you? I hope everything is wonderful. I'm sitting here and thinking how to tell you this guys. I'm drinking almost cold cup of green tea which is surrounded by about 20 bottles of nail polish, my cosmetic box, mirror, clothes and it's all on my table. Such a mess here. I'm so tired but finally I have all what I need in my suitcase. Can you guess about what I'm talking? I've been keeping this as a secret for so long.. And I've been longing for this for so long as well.. I'm going to Egypt tomorrow! I will relax and think about all of you even though I'm not going to post anything. My laptop is going to stay at home and also there will be no scheduled posts (I'm sorry, I had idea about scheduling some posts but it was too late already..) so probably we're going to talk when I'm going to be home - BUT you already know that I'm using Instagram so you can follow me HERE, I will update there for sure. If I'll be able I will update my Facebook page (blog page) as well, but as nobody of you all follows me there I think it's unnecessary. :D I'm so tired right now I just want to go to bed and fall asleep, but I know that I will be to excited. Well, I hope you all will have great week! Keep your head up and smile! <3
Also, I'm sharing with quick outfit post. I wore this outfit yesterday, because it was warm enough to dress up like that. I bought burgundy blouse and flower scarf recently. They're my favorite garment right now, I hope that when I'm going to be back I'll be able to share with another my newest buy : super comfy gray knitted jumper from zara! So my yesterday's outfit below:
What I wore: Blouse: Stradivarius
Scarf & pants: H&M
Knee boots: Nelly.com
Leather jacket: old
Watch: Olivia Burton
I think the best thing about this moment is.. I don't care about some things anymore. My happiness is priority. Past? Past is past: I don't talk about it = I don't think about it. Future? There is nothing that we can do about it. Living in this moment? Enjoy it. Work hard, travel, but firstly love! Love this moment! Because you don't have anything else right now. Somebody right now is studying, somebody is eating dinner, celebrating life with friends, making love; whatever - I'm here, writing this down and enjoying moment. It's pretty cold, but candle which is burning on the windowsill makes me feel warm and good. Conversations with new people and good words it's also something that is happening right now and it all warms up my heart. I'm thinking about who I am and who I want to be. I'm thinking about people who I want to see in my life right now. And right now I'm happy. Dear followers - I hope that you all are happy! Good night <3
