Make the most from your bad day

bad day bad day

As each of us, even I am having sometimes bad days. at work, in relationships, with my hobbies or just with myself.
The thing is, that each of us deal with these bad days different way. Some people love to complain about it, some people constantly bother others with their problems and are just sucking out the positive energy from the others around.
And some people like me are trying to do the most from their bad days and simply deal with it. I know. It’s easy to say as people naturally tend to break themselves to the negativity more than to stay positive, but.. it’s just works!

For example today’s outfit – I was so much not in a mood for doing that, but later on I took a look on the pictures and.. it came out so good! I think it looks really cool, to mix the two trends – use shirt dress over high waisted jeans and put over it a thick leather belt. I got this one from Asos, it was the first one I found as soon as I spotted Kim Kardashian and then Carli Bybel do this!:D They took the inspiration from Prada collection. Actually, they might got the belt really from the Prada collection:P I’d love to find some nice denim belt as well, but so far didn’t see anything. Any tips guys?:)

I wish you great day and keep on doing what you love !

Sewing: Birthday sequin dress not for my birthday

sewing sequin dress sewing sequin dress sewing sequin dress sewing sequin dress sewing sequin dress sewing sequin dress

First thing: I am very happy how organised I am lately. Second thing: it has got couple of conditions, to keep up with the schedule – wake up at 6am, meal prep, energy (which disappears at 11am) and organised and scheduled posts. I mean, pictures. Because this is my first post I’m doing at work, on my break, with belly full of mashed cauliflower with butter and poached chicken. So full. How is your Monday so far? 

Today I share some first sneak peaks into my sequin dress: You gonna love the final picture! But I’ll keep it for next Monday post:P

The dress is for Daniil’s birthday party happening in March. I got it ready now already because later I will be panicking with cake for My cutie pie and make up. 

To be honest guys, I didn’t expect it will be so easy to work with sequin fabric, plus lining. I got all the parts of the pattern ready first, than  sew by hand together lining and the parts (for preparation only) and then worked on the whole dress.

As you can see, the sequins were eeeeverywhere!:D The whole floor in the kitchen was glittery, like disco ball exploded there or whatever. How do you like it? I feel so glamorous in that dress, I’ve never done or worn something like this before!! Would be amazing to have some fluffy white fur over my shoulders haha. But it might be too much for house party:) I am seriously thinking about selling the dress once I’ll wear it just for one night. 

Anybody interested?:))

What happened last week II/II

sugar free desert and random post of the week

Good morning to all of you!

I don’t know, where to start today. It’s been so busy week that for the next weekly random post I must do some notes on daily basis to remember what everything I wanted to share with you guys!
This week it was almost just me at home as Daniil left for his friend’s birthday party to the Netherlands. I was quite excited to have weekend for myself and sewing but.. You know what, is sucked. I missed my boyfriend so badly! The weather wasn’t helping at all so when I was on my way home from shopping, I wasn’t excited about the empty flat, about not doing our jokes or being together. But I have to admit I did lots of sewing though. I’ve been working on new sewing project – working name is dress for Daniil’s birthday party. And the dress is for me, just to let you know. It is like this – for every smaller or bigger occasion I get excited so easily that I have to simply create new outfit for it, cook something special for it or simply organize the whole event. Yep Lucie, that’s you, you little bossy girl.
So I said, I’ve done another sewing project which I absolutely love love love (see blog posts in following weeks), went through bunch of magazines and cleaned up my closet. I also successfully finished first week without carbs (eating carbs only in vegetable, nuts, cocoa or.. actually that might be it!) so I am so proud about myself. And from the picture above you can see that when you quit carbs, you don’t quit desserts for breakfast! Visit this amazing blog of a girl called Janina who writes about her sugar free life and shares amazing recipes. Yesterday I baked her brownies (with a little paleo twist) and they are divine. The cream on top is just sweet positive side of high fat diet:D

 What about you guys, what have you done for last week to be proud of? :)

PS: I found one amazing thing: My boyfriend probably wears only one sock / has got one real leg only / Our washing machine is eating socks. Honestly, this morning when I was folding his socks, I had 6 spares socks. And I’ve already sorted them out like million times! Anybody has got any clue about this?

PS2: Next time I am definitely coming to Netherlands. Yesterday night I had Face Time with Daniil and saw all the amazing people I can call my friends. I miss you guys so badly! And Happy B-Day Thijs! I would change partying with you guys for all cashew butter in the world! :D

Spotted this week

spotted this week-2spotted this week8-2 spotted this week 4 spotted this week7 spotted this week 6 spotted this week spotted this week-3

So last weekend Gabi came over and we had that amazing girly weekend. We had so much fun, I am so grateful for friend like her!
Obviously, the first day we went to Oxford street do so some necessary shopping, visit Primark (yes, I am using expression “visit” together with Primark. Honestly, who spend in that zoo less than 2 hrs!:D ) and just walk around.

I found just by accident this lovely store called “& other stories“. And fell in love!
Do you know this brand? Basically it is under the H&M group, with designs from Stockholm and Paris (honestly, lately French fashion got me so much! And Swedish bloggers.. well you know those famous bloggers from Stockholm!). This dangerous combination of French chic originality and Swedish style cannot make anything wrong. ย The storeย I went inย is on Oxford street, but they have more stores around London, just check their website.

Honestly, those from you, who are constantly on Instagram (like me) searching for outfit inspiration and seeing all these pretty trendy stuff, will love this store! It is exactly the thing I was looking for for ages. I don’t know where to start – they have exactly the trendy pieces for very affordable prices, the material quality is… I would say comparable to some high end brands and the colours are beautiful. Everything at & other stories starting by underwear ending up by accessories and cosmetic products. I was especially targeting on few pieces on my wish list – high waisted trousers and some tops.
I definitely recommend to visit the store as you might regret ordering online – at least you can really see the amazing quality plus I think at the store they have way more things. I must say even I regret I ordered bunch of stuff online! Hm, at least I didn’t have money left to go crazy at the store:) Check their knitwear and denim collection for sure. They are also on spot with the khaki colour which is so trendy now! Worth mentioning is also the cosmetic section where I found lots of body lotions smelling like sweets and most amazing body scrubs.
Once I will receive my stuff you can be sure to see it here on blog in outfits!

Have a fab evening guys and happy shopping :P

And what about the leggings?

So what is the deal with leggings? Is that one big no no or is that allowed, for those very casual occasions, for weekend wear?
Apparently this trend hasn’t faded yet – recently seen on Gigi Hadid walking around NY in very comfortable looking outfit – cropped hoodie, grey pair of leggings and no-make up perfect skin. I personally love them on Kardashians – either you love them or hate them, they have style and know how to wear every single piece of clothes. But what you could spotted on these girls is the most important know-how for leggings: Material, material, material. They don’t do smaller sizes where you can see your underwear print or any transparency. And no, you don’t have to go crazy with money, it just needs patience and lots of trying to find the best pick for you. I personally recommend Asos, Nike, H&M or Joseph. First three brands are more casual and you can find there easier fabrics and more fun styles. Joseph is doing amazing gabardine leggings – I have mine for a year now and cannot complain at all! Also on Asos you can get some for workwear as well – not whether treat Asos as high street or high end fashion retail as they have amazing stuff sometimes.

By years now I also love leather look leggings – for me the best one are from Calzedonia. I recently tried Forever 21 or Asos, but they were too thin or my (no)bum looked weird..:)
It is also all about details – what are you going to pair them with, accessories and details on leggings itself.

So what is your final opinion, yay or nay for leggings?
Here I went for very sporty combination – bottom from Nike with Primark crop top and my super comfortable Nike Huarache trainers.
