Blizzard

COS jacket, ZARA shorts, H&M sweater, ZARA scarf, Vintage boots
Oh blizzard, how I dislike you. This wind we (citizens of Geneva) had to cope with is simply the worst. When you hear 'brain freeze', merely imagine this sensation being felt in every single part of your body. Now you may be wondering why in the world was I actually wearing tights and shorts right? To be completely honest I ask myself the same question. The trick is thinking deeply that you're laying on a sand beach. (I do the same when I go skiing-even though I'm fully covered-trust me, it works). If you know me personally I'm one to brave the cold like nobody's business. I'm that one gal who you know will completely assume being not fully covered when the cold hits. Oh well! Maybe I've build some sort of shell by facing the cold all these years. I've realised my immune system has been real good to me for a good time. I rarely ever get sick (touch wood). Never say never. I might just be tomorrow ha!

Light Play

wearing COS skirt, EPISODE t-shirt, KOOKAI cardigan, gifted scarf, ZARA shoes

A couple days ago my photography professor suggested our class an amusing and different type of exercise from our usual wanders around town. We had the opportunity to play around with the different types of lighting used in the photography studio. Here is a glimpse of what it turned out from my friend Catarina's lens. Of course our roles were reversed so I also took great shots of her. Although some of you might like the actual background of a scenery a little more, I thought it could be fun to share these pictures with you as an outfit post. To be honest I was quite impressed with the result as we shot these pictures with our basic reflex yet the automatic lights made such a difference You would think these were shot professionally right ? What you you guys think of the result ? Overall it was such a great experience as we learned a lot about the operation of a photo shoot as well as the various lighting used for photography. On another note, can I just say how funny some of these shots actually look. I ain't no model and this was all about having fun and experiencing with different poses and expressions.

2014 Blues

 ZARA coat and shoes, gifted scarf (similar here), COS bag, INGYGO JEWELS earrings (here)
In only a few hours, 2014 will be behind us. It truly has been a great year to me. I have set goals to myself, have accomplished them, met new people along the way, relationships that I know will last, some others will fade. I feel blessed to have travelled to beautiful places with uplifting people. I laughed (a lot), loved (let's keep it short), cried (mostly joy), I learned from past mistakes, I felt a gain of confidence throughout the year as well as maturity in my way of thinking and acting. I don't want to sound cheesy here but I guess we all (humans) go through these phases, it's a part of growing up and accepting who we are as people. I tried to remain the most positive I could be. I also turned 20 years old on December 17th which makes me want to push myself even further in 2015, to be wiser and feel more independent. 
New year resolutions are always quite hard to maintain especially if it concerns the 'oh so talked about' fitness and diet routines. I'm probably the worst when it comes to committing to a regime. However I do believe in the saying 'everything in moderation'. This new year I want to keep a positive mind with positive surroundings as I believe it's what makes you go further in life and very much keeps you going. I have goals I want to accomplish. Furthermore I want to focus this year on patience as it's something I need to work on. 
Most importantly, I want to say a huge thank you to all my reader's because you guys are awesome and I wish you the very best for this new year to come. We just hit +225'000 views today! Happy days and Happy New Year's Eve!

Magenting

ZARA turtleneck (similar here), COS skirt (here), &OTHER STORIES bag (similar here ), ZARA shoes, COS necklace (here), INDYGO JEWELS earrings (here)
Bold cuts, plain colors and platform shoes are all I can think of (fashion-wise) lately. I very much appreciate the idea of pairing a more feminine piece with a tougher, more boyish item (referencing to my shoes here). Speaking of them, I can assure you we've been living the good life together ever since we crossed paths. I mean what's there not to love ? Leather, laces, chunky heels, affordable and eye catching! This isn't sponsored, but man if that's not convincing you to get yourself a pair...
Anyway, 2014 is almost coming to an end and boy has it been an awesome year! So many good moments and new experiences achieved. I feel blessed on so many levels, cheers to new adventures!
