AUTUMN FLOWERS



So London is showing its real face by sharing some rainy days with all of us over here. What could be worse for taking the outfit pictures outside?? From my busy diary I have only weekends when I have some time to put all myself into work with my blog and, lucky me, it's raining all day long! Well, even if the weather is awful, I couldn't just leave my blog empty and had a photoshoot under the rain (not the best feeling)!

However, I'm pretty happy about the result as my main goal was to present you this brand new Free People jacket. It's not completely my style, but when I saw those flowers on the sleeves & a navy blue fur detail on a hoody, I just fell in love with it! And you know what, it's just perfect during these rainy days as the hood covers all my head and I don't even feel that it's raining anymore hahah!

I believe that you would definitely agree with me that this jacket doesn't go well with a classy dress or a pair of heels, so I tried to make it more sporty but at the same time casual & sheek. As you can see, I added those lovely light grey socks to make the look even more cute & a bit girly. I really think this outfit is just perfect for everyday walks around the city, well, definitely when it's not raining!

Hope you guys liked this outfit, especially this new Free People jacket (find it here) & see you soon with a new post!

Love,
R

RED QUEEN & VINTAGE CAR



I'm sooo excited to share this second look in collaboration with Fabitoria! Look at this skirt! If you have never heard about this brand, you should definitely check them out if you are a true lover of textiles prints. What I love about clothes with prints on it, that the shapes of the garments can be so so simple, however when you add a print to that garment, it becomes completely different and much more noticeable.

Honestly, I'm very picky when it comes to bright, ornamented clothes. It's usually way too much for me. I feel so happy that I managed to find a brand which surprises me with every collection by its unique shapes, fabrics and, obviously, prints! Also, I matched my brand new Lavish Alice classy blazer and I think this combination of two, completely different brads went very well together. What do you think about this combo?

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS



When I was at school, I wasn't used to organise my time that much. There were loads of things to do, I kept forgetting those "must do" tasks and, obviously, I was always stressing about that. Only after a while I came to the decision to buy a notebook! At the moment, I can't imagine myself without it. Well, at least without google calendar. 

It's not a secret that London is a super busy city. You have to be really good in time managing in order to reach your goals and destinations! Few days ago, I received this little notebook from Smythson and just fell in love with it. Of course, I would be much more happier if this would be like a calendar type notebook, as it's much more easier to plan your everyday stuff when you have one. However, even if it's pretty simple inside, the cover of this little book is just gorgeous! Those little golden letters "Follow Your Dreams" make me feel so inspired that I decided to put all my wishes, dreams & future plans in there!

Do you guys use a notebook? I really think it's just a MUST HAVE for busy ladies, especially bloggers, right?

Love,
R

GOLD & SHINY DIAMONDS



Hope you are all well! I'm trying my best to make as much outfit posts as I can but it's pretty difficult at the moment. I'm working full time so have only weekends to do my blogging stuff as at 5 pm it's already dark outside and to make some cool pics to share with you guys is actually not really possible. However, this weekend we tried to work hard and had a few shootings so I have many things to show you guys!

As you hopefully remember, I was collaborating with a brand Fabitoria since I moved to London last year. I made few outfit posts on the blog before & also wore their gorgeous pieces to London Fashion Weekend. This time we are working together again and I'm so happy to show you their new pieces from the latest collection. I see so much talent in this brand, the prints they create seems like something insane for me! 

When collaborating with brands, I always pay loads of attention to their product. I rarely work with brands that doesn't meet my own style & my own "requirements". It's all because it's so much easier to represent a brand to you guys when I truly believe in their idea and feel so inspired by their designs. I believe that it's both beneficial for me and for a brand as well.

This time I'm showing you this gorgeous, white, classy skirt & long sleeve top obviously from Fabitoria! I'm so in love with this new collection, I highly recommend you to visit their website as they have definitely exclusive pieces. As most of the time, I tried to add some edgy details to the outfit! Hope you guys will like this look & cannot wait to show you the second outfit soon.

Love,
R

A PERFECT CLUTCH



Although it's almost winter now, I'm still in love with bright, let's say, a bit summer ish colours! I really think this is what makes you be noticed on the streets. Of course, there are loads of amazing designs in black or any other dark colour, however if you'll have something bright in your outfit, you could be sure that it will catch someone's eye!

Today my mission is to represent you my new love and dearest guest in my wardrobe - this gorgeous clutch from GOLDENLANE. I would say I'm quite picky when it comes to ''let's buy a bag'' process. I always find something that I don't like so usually I spend loads of time till I find a perfect one.

A week ago I had a lovely meeting with one of the founders of Golden Lane bags and also visited their showroom full of, believe me, gorgeous bags! Obviously, as I always loved pink, I fell in love with this clutch from the first sight. That modern touch & good quality just stole my heart. I really think that it's one of those accessories when people start asking you, oh where did you get it?? 

Of course, I totally agree that it's a matter of taste as it's really not a usual clutch. However, I'm pretty sure that I could match it with almost every look from my wardrobe and it would still look awesome! That's all for today, I have some exciting collaborations waiting ahead for you guys & more exciting articles about my life in London!

See you soon,
R

BLACK BAG & HIGH HEELS


Hope you are all well! I actually wasn't really sure what to write about today but this idea came to my mind and I thought, as I moved to London, I should tell all of you guys, why I love this city and why I think it's so special. As I know quite a few people who are not enjoying London that much and you could also think, oh well, my friend was there and he/she told me it was super crowded, people are like crazy there, I would love to tell you what helped me to realise why this city is so special!

I am pretty sure you've noticed that the places, doesn't matter if it's a restaurant, a club or even a city, which are most of the time full of people, are the most popular ones. And I was always asking myself, why so many people come to London? It's so expensive, it's extremely busy, there's no time to just sit and relax honestly! After a one year in this city, I can truly say that I finally have an answer to this question.

Imagine when every single day you can find at least 10 people who seem inspiring for you from the first sight? Imagine a place which is full of creative people surrounding you in every corner: in a coffee shop, on a tube or just randomly on the street! This is London! I really think that there are so many opportunities in this city, you just have to be motivated and brave enough to take them. Of course, there are so many difficulties in this city as well. It's really hard to not think about the money as the prices are really high, but personally, I feel so motivated and inspired by how people here manage to do so many things at on time, how hard they work and what an extremely awesome results they reach!

I really believe that you need to find a place/ city which inspires you by its atmosphere and especially people, because only then you can make the best of yourself! For now, I think London is an exact place for me. I'm meeting so many talented people from the fashion industry, people who are believing in their selves so much, even if they are in the lowest point of their career. All these things are the biggest motivation for me at the moment and I really wish to find a place like this for all of you guys! 

If talking about my outfit, I just couldn't wait to show you guys this gorgeous GOLDENLANE bag! It's so versatile and modern, I just love it. It also has that sporty touch which makes me feel obsessed with it as I'm a true lover of matching sporty & classy styles! Also, I cannot stop wearing these ZARA fake leather trousers. Sooo comfy & goes well with everything from my wardrobe.

Wish you all a crazy weekend & see you soon!

Love,
R

NEW HOME.NEW BEGINNING



So after that heavy week full of difficulties starting with moving in,  jobs and many other things, I still believed that it always comes the time, when everything stands up to its right places. And it did! After spending each day in front of my laptop, looking for the new opportunities, trying to take as much as I can from this city, I finally got a job that I was dreaming about. It's actually one of the best feelings ever! Cannot wait to start and tell you more about this new opportunity!

Well, this post is more about our new home & our lovely neighborhood that we moved in yesterday! Few years ago I was actually thinking about studying interior design so to have my own place and be able to decorate it the way I want, it's just awesome. I think those, who are living by their own, know this feeling hahah! 

What I love the most about our new flat is definitely white walls! I love how clean, minimal & fresh it looks, you don't even need to put tones of accessories to make it look good. Also, the street is really beautiful, there are loads of different colour doors, classy designs, I cannot wait to make the new outfit pictures for you guys over there!

That's all for today, in the next posts I promise to surprise you with some new collaborations & don't forget to text me and come for a coffee as soon as you are in London x

Love,
R

STRESSED BUT WELL DRESSED



Hey hey, long time no see! I actually fell so bad all this time that I couldn't post that often but you know, happens in life. Guys, today I want to talk more about what is happening at the moment, why I am in London again and what's on my mind (crazy things are going on, believe me.)

To start with, I think some of you may already know that last year I got into my dream university UAL (University of the Arts, London) and studied BA Fashion Illustration as I was very passionate about drawing, art and I literally couldn't leave my home without a pencil in my bag since I was a child. However, this huge London city turned everything upside down. As you may realised, from the time I moved out from Lithuania, I became more active with my blog, I met some amazing people and had collaborations, projects that I was always dreaming about! This sounds just great, however I got so confused inside my head, I realised that there are so many things I want to do, I fell so motivated to move forward that university and especially drawing part started just slowing me down.

After one of my biggest decisions in my life, I decided to take a gap year from university and accomplish all my dreams, improve my skills and create something mine, something that I could be proud of. Even though I knew that you can always come back to studies, I was still scared and not sure if it's the right decision. Well, as cheesy it sounds, I listened to my heart and signed the papers for a year out from uni. I spent some time at home during the summer, organised everything in my head and calmed down. I made a few goals for myself: to find a job that inspires me and I could learn something useful from, create something mine that I would be proud of, meet some amazing people and, of course, improve my blog as much as I can!

As we moved to London few days ago, to be honest, we are a bit (or even more) stressed as we had to find where to live (in 4 days) and to find jobs to pay for our rent. It really makes you feel a bit lost in this huge city, but you have to be focused at the same time. Thanks God we are young, full of motivation, desire to work hard and learn as much as we can!

Okay, let's leave those difficult things behind! I'm so happy that two years ago I created this blog as it really motivates me even when everything is going slightly down. I've prepared so many projects that I'm more than excited to share with you guys, just need some time to put everything to the right places. Today I'm leaving you with my latest outfit with this gorgeous (however, the quality is surprisingly worse than I expected) ASOS skirt & the view of sunny London streets!

Enjoy your weekend & talk to you soon x

Love,
R

A LITTLE COMICS BAG




Welcome home my first comics bag ever! I really love to have some crazy stuff in my wardrobe sometimes. Well, usually I prefer weird/funny/noticeable accessories, bags or shoes. This little baby arrived few days ago from one of my favourite online stores Front Row Shop. I picked this one as I realised that I have only one proper clutch in my wardrobe! Also, I'm going back to London soon (wup wup), so I'm really in a need of having some noticeable accessories as there are so many opportunities to be noticed on the streets (cannot wait!!!)

Honestly, today was one of those days when I was super lazy to match something cool to wear.. I just woke up and took some random pieces, put them together and grabbed my brand new comics bag. I leave all the jugdements about my look for you guys as I'm really not sure what you could think about it hahah! Just to let you know, I fell very cozy and comfy during the day with this look x

Love,
R
