a.k.a Perfection

Hi guys!

So... I was reading some catwalk reports, a little bit late I know, and I saw the most perfect collection ever. A few months back I told you how obsessed I was with Alexander Wang's H&M collection, well let's just say the man can do no wrong!

Alexander's 2015 Spring collection is perfection! It has everything that you could wish for. The edginess of Wang mixed with urban and sporty vibes that just makes you wanna get it all. The collections colours varie between neutrals and neons. Silhouette is very much grown up than his previous collections. His key pieces still are crops and high waisted ~ and who doesn't like that. To be honest here I would buy his entire collection if I could. Here are a few of my favourite looks:

My latest obsession

Hi guys!

So about 5 days ago I was, still am, stressing out about a few projects that I've to hand in in the next few days, and if there's something that I hate is to miss deadlines, because I just know I'm better than that. I just know I can do it, and when I don't I don't fail anyone else but myself. Which as you can imagine can be a little bit depressing.



Anyways the stress was on and I just knew I had to do something about it. That's when I came across a Vogue article called "Supermodel selfies in spandex" and one of the pictures was Joan Smalls doing Yoga, and I remembered how one of my friends used to do yoga to relax. And so I downloaded "DailyYoga", which as several yoga exercises and lessons. And it's great because it helps you to clear your mind for 10 or 20 minutes relax, and exercise. While you also learn how to focus in one single thing at a time and how to be more patient.



Right now I've been doing the Beginners program which is great to start and you can re-do it as many times as you wish. I think I've always been a bit interested in trying it, and I remember about a month ago I was investigating about meditation and its perks, and yoga is a bit more active and has about the same perks. So basically I'm loving it and if you are looking for a new way to exercise or looking for something new to try I totally recommend yoga.

2014 Flashback | Last post of the year

Hello everyone,

The year is almost over, or over depending on where you are and when you are reading this, the point is there is nothing else you can do to change 2014 and I hope you had a year that you don't regret at all because there is no point in regretting something. I'm a full supporter of the quote "Everything happens for a reason" and when people ask me " do you wish to change anything in your past" my answer is no. Why? Because you learn from mistakes, and from other people, even if they weren't that nice to you.

When December arrives I always get that felling that I haven't done anything at all with my life. I guess that's our natures fault for letting us forget things and events. So I went back on all my social medias, thank god for that and wrote down every big thing that happen to me this year and it turns out it was a very eventful year; and I think everyone should do that because everyone has that feeling "I've done nothing with my life" but one year is a long time filled with big things, that you probably just forgot to remember.


So 2014 started okay I guess, I started to send my applications to the UK universities, which was kind of a big step because at this point everything just seemed like a dream and that was one of the first small steps. After that we had a big down sense my brother broke both of his arms and everyone got a bit down for him, all of his dreams seemed to have crash and we didn't knew how far the rest of us could go. That was when I started to feel like I had to prove myself in school, specially because I had one big project to hand in, that I wanted to do the best I could, and I did.

A big thing that happen in 2014 for me was going back to dance, dance as always been a big part of my life and going back and dancing again made it a great year. This year I got to cross loads of things from my bucket list and from my wishes, you know the ones you do on the new years. Like getting fit, trying new things, like cheerleading, which I never though I would do, searching and discovering new places, taking more fashion risks, doing something for charity, and starting a blog.

But I do believe that the biggest thing that happen to me this year was moving to the UK, starting university, living alone, and figuring out how life really is.


Overall I had a pretty amazing year. How about you?

Love,
