Sarajevo style

This was my everyday style while in Sarajevo with natural makeup!

Wore this style every day…flats…jeans…and a loose top, because it was so hot.

Makeup was also the same every day…natural!

Stone tone

When this weekend rolls around I’ve worked 33 days in a row…Only two days within these 33 have been without an obligation involving other people. I’ve had two Saturdays “off”. But, since I’m working on so many things right now I had to take a few hours even there to catch up on everything.

Don’t take this post as me complaining, I’m just stating facts. It is what it is, it has to be done so I’m doing it. I chose this.

I was on my way home last night, from yet another weekend away working. To cheer myself up I was browsing online stores and ended up with this small order.

Last year I ordered a black and white suit like this one but it never arrived. I’ll try this one out and see if I like it. I also had to get some staples like the T-shirts and the skirt was just an impulse order.

I freaking love spring!

Work mode is in full effect. I have so many exciting things going on, I leave work just to go home and work some more. The sunshine we’ve been having these last few weeks is doing wonders for me and my creativity. As soon as I can tell you about the things I’ve been working on, you know I will.

Later today I have a meeting and after that I’m meeting up with some friends for a drink. Therefore I incorporated my going out outfit with my work outfit.

new and fresh

My new business cards arrived yesterday!

I absolutely love them. I designed them all on my own and they are perfect. I wanted something simple with a bit of me. I want my whole business to reflect me and the business itself. So the business cards go along with the blog and the address is personalized, which looks so much better than just a regular yahoo address that I had before.

Super happy with the new design of the blog and everything else!

ASOS Sale

For me shopping in a sale means I really don’t need the item but I get it because it’s cute and at a good price. That’s how I justify shopping anyway. But if there is an item I really need I’ll get it then and there, the price doesn’t really matter. And as I am a shop-a-holic I must have a method where I don’t spend all my money. For me it is the number seven. If I’m shopping in a sale I don’t get more than seven things. At Primark, I don’t get more than seven bags, etc.

Here are the seven items I’m loving from the ASOS Sale at the moment.

Where are you?

So, it’s past 3AM and I’m still awake. I’m always productive at night so here I am writing down goals and aspirations for 2015 and getting the ball in motion in order for me to have a great year! Super excited about that.

Well since the blog is gonna be a vocal point of my future I was also thinking about the readers…
So my question to you is, where do you guys live. Obviously I see where you are from in my stats but more like what city. I plan on traveling to some new places this year and I think it would be fun to maybe meet up and do a collaboration of some sorts.

Today…

Today was a busy day at work and after that I went to the mall to do some ‘Christmas’ shopping! I say ‘Christmas’ because I don’t really celebrate, because I’m Muslim. But I do like giving gift and where I’m from we give New Year presents instead of Christmas presents. So yeah…you get the point…LOL

Anyway, I picked up the last few ones I needed to get then stopped by my grandparents house for dinner before coming home and wrapping them all.

Inspired

I told you I felt inspired to get back home and work hard after the weekend and that’s exactly what I did. I got a lot of stuff done. Also, I planned the next few weeks and when to do what. Fun times. Last night I also went to dinner with a few co workers. When you do a lot in the day and you feel accomplished you can do those kinds of things without feeling guilty.

Have a great and productive day!!!

Wore this to a night out with friends at the end of this summer! This is a different look for me, because I’m not very girly. Although I have gone from being all tomboy in my teens to wearing dresses and skirts a few times a month in the last few years.
