Bow tie


I bought this Stradivarius blazer a few years ago as my first “nice” black blazer purchase. It’s still one of the best pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe and has been one of my go-tos ever since. I could easily say that my black blazer and my denim/ leather jackets are the most-worn outerwear pieces I have. Also, this classic model has proven to pair with basically everything.
Another thing that I currently love is everything lace! I’d been eyeing the exact lace blouse that I'm wearing in this post from Mohito but in blush colour since I saw the pastel lace is very trendy at the moment. It’s the epitome of feminine and delicate and I know if I try it on, I won't be able to walk away without it. It’s definitely a piece that I will wear a lot since it can be combined with nicer accessories for special occasions, while at the same time it works just as well for everyday with simple blue jeans and a jacket. Besides, it has the sweetest velvet bow, which plays beautifully against the dainty lace.


One thing that I always do almost unconsciously is adding a edgier element to the more feminine and elegant looks I wear. There is no exception in this case as you can see I'm wearing my most-worn and beloved combat boots from H&M, last seen on the blog here, but normally worn on a daily basis with pretty much everything.They are not everyone's cup of tea but I love them so very much! 
And last but not least, I could not mention the newest addition to my wardrobe - this amazing quilted chain Mango bag that I have been dreaming of since late autumn. I have been struggling to find the perfect bag for years maybe and this one finally gives me everything I have been looking for.. It is made from delicate quilted fabric, it's spacious enough to put everything I need for the day in it without carrying a small suitcase on my shoulder, it can be worn cross-body or on one shoulder as I prefer and also can be combined with pretty much everything in my wardrobe thanks to its classic model. Pure perfection for a reasonable price.

Skincare


The skin changes during puberty: it becomes thicker, shiny and less soft. The more or less significant blemishes that appear sometimes continue through to adulthood. As I always had acne-prone skin I decided to share with you my favourite products, which I use on a daily basis to maintain my skin's condition. All of these products are by the french brand BIODERMA that offers a new generation of anti-blemish treatments. They act directly on sebum quality thanks to the Fluidactiv® patented complex found in all of the range's products.


The first product I use every evening before going to bed is the Sébium Gel moussant - a purifying gel that gently cleanses and prevents blemishes from the cleansing stage. It's enriched with purifying agents, zinc sulfate and copper sulphate, thanks to which it purifies the skin and limits sebaceous secretion.
 Next I'm cleansing my face with two different micellar waters, but I'm going to tell you more about them in the next Skincare post I'm planning.
And the final step is applying the Sébium Pore refiner correcting concentrate which improves the skin's appearance. Its texture becomes finer, more regular and clearer, and pores are tightened and less visible. The Fluidactiv exclusive patented complex that I already mentioned biologically regulates sebum quality, which keeps pores from becoming clogged and limits the formation of blemishes.


As I wear make-up on a daily basis, I always put on my face the Sébium Mat Control cream before applying foundation. Sébium MAT Control is a moisturising product with 8-hour MAT & SMOOTH technology: instant, deep down results for naturally beautiful skin. Thanks to its ingridients it biologically regulates shine (zinc, vitamin B6), refines skin texture and tightens pores (keratolytic active ingredients and astringent), limits the appearance of blemishes (Fluidactiv patented complex). The skin is matte and smooth, lastingly transformed.

Have you tried any of these products before and what do you think about them?
P.S. If you have sensitive, combination to oily skin, I would strongly recommend these products to you. Give them a try and share your thoughts with me.
P.P.S. As you may already know I'm a pharmacist, so you can ask me all kind of skin and hair related questions.

The Vrana Palace


One of the exciting things about travelling to somewhere new is the newness of everything. While the feelings of unfamiliarity and absence of a routine feel a bit scary, it’s also a fun time to be embracing new surroundings. It also opens your eyes on being more appreciative for the things around us when we're home. There is beauty no matter where you are, whether you live in a city, the country, the suburbs or somewhere in between.
So in the end of 2016, my boyfriend and I headed out to visit one of the handful of historic places around Sofia - the Vrana Palace.
This exact weekend was also our first one that welcomed the brisk mornings that autumn brings. For that reason there weren't that much visitors. At the time of our arrival we noticed a few dozen visitor’s cars parked in the entry, but after a few minutes of roaming the grounds, we realized that the place was big enough to feel like we were the only ones there.


I’m someone who would live in all black outfits almost 24/7. But it still has to have something that pops or makes the outfit have character. The combination of textures and fabrics - silk, leather and a bit of sparkle - all made the look feel much more than just basic black.
I bought this military inspired Zara coat recently for a wedding and it’s still one of the best pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe and has been one of my go-tos ever since, no matter if I'm combining it with a dress, a skirt, basic jeans or leather leggings like in this case.


Leather pants/leggings are almost a year round staple for me, especially on the grey foggy days we’ve been having. A great pair of leather pants will always be chic and timeless, while still adding a little bit of edginess to any look.
I wore mine with the riding boots, which I bought recently too. A black pair of riding boots is one of the items that are worth spending a little bit more money on. Once you find the right pair, you’ll want to live in them and they will become a staple in your wardrobe.


The Vrana Palace is a former royal palace, located on the outskirts of Sofia. I have never visited it before, but I couldn't be happier that we decided to visit it in autumn. I'm sure that it is amazing in spring too with all the blooming flowers and green trees, but in autumn the whole area is something completely surreal! The crisp afternoon air and the colorful foliage that looks like a painting are things that I just can’t get enough of! It’s just what you would imagine from the places like this - incredibly charming and surrounded by the most beautiful fall colors you’ve ever seen.

The best of 2016


A new year is a blank slate. An opportunity to wipe away all that negativity and start fresh, while bringing with us the happiness and lessons we’ve picked up along the way.
This is a wonderful time to sit quietly and reflect on the year that now stands in our past while looking hopefully and lovingly toward the future ahead.

...

In May my boyfriend and I celebrated the fact that we have spent two years together and still love each other like never before.


Also in May we visited the Belogradchik Rocks, which are a group of strange shaped sandstone and conglomerate rock formations located on the western slopes of the Balkan Mountains (Stara Planina) near the town of Belogradchik in northwest Bulgaria. They are known also as the Belogradchik Fortress, because it incorporates the rocks as part of its natural defense. The fortress has existed since Roman times. In 1st – 3rd century AD the Romans built roads in the new provinces of the empire on the Balkan peninsula, as well as fortresses to guard them.


During the summer of 2016 I attended my second.. 


and third Moto Fest, which were really cool.


In the end of June, it was time for our first summer get away to Greece. This time we chose more secluded place than last year to get that much needed rest - Possidi, Kassandra, Halkidiki. The village is really small with just a couple of hotels and taverns, but it is quite dreamy as well - turquoise blue water, beautiful sand beaches, peace and quite. Not to mention the most picturesque lighthouse and the almost 2 km long beach near it.. I haven't seen anything like that ever before.. We visited it a couple of times during our stay, always at sunset, and I don't think I have ever seen more perfect sunset than this one.


In August we finally went to see The Seven Rila Lakes, whish is something I've been waiting for a really long time. The hike is not easy, but it is definitely worth it in the end.
When you hike the Seven Rila Lakes you pass by each one of them from the lowest to the highest one. That’s what makes the hike so unique – you start with one, then two, three of them and when you get to the last one – The Tear, you can see all seven of them in unique harmony with the mountain.


In September we made another little get away to Greece. This time we ended in Kavala since we have missed it a lot. The weather was not quite what we have expected to be, but we still had a great time.


In October my boyfriend and I went to Veliko Tarnovo to celebrate my 26th birthday. (Actually, this was our second trip to Veliko Tarnovo this year. We visited it in March as well for the celebration of the Bulgaria's National Holiday.)
I think Veliko Tarnovo wins for one of the prettiest cities we’ve visited. Everything from the cobblestone streets, to the historical architecture, the zigzagging river and beautiful parks, it’s amazing that it’s taken us this long to visit. It’s an incredible town, with so much to offer, filled with amazing people, fantastic restaurants and pubs, lots of opportunity and surrounded by at least a dozen places to visit just a short drive away. I love that  
with each changing season, it becomes a different place and we are seriously thinking of visiting it again some time soon. 


Also, that was one of the best birthdays ever.


Lastly, it’s fun to write down some memories – whether big or small. Places I saw… people I met… situations that had me dying of laughter. These are the things that infuse joy into each and every day. These are the moments that we string together to create a life filled with happiness.

“I’m beginning to recognise that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.”

- Beau Taplin // L i t t l e  E v e r y d a y  J o y s


Whether your year was full of big changes, or small changes, or good ones, or not so good, it’s always best to look back with a smile. Be proud of your accomplishments, and look at hardships as both opportunities and learning experiences.  

I hope you have all had a wonderful, weird, exciting, enlightening 2016, and that 2017 brings you more peace, ease, joy and fun than you have experienced thus far.
