Here come the “New year, New me” confessions. Just kidding. I am not gonna brag about hitting the gym twice a day, making my dreams happen, not eating a single piece of cake, staying motivated or waking up at 7 am every day. Although I wish (except the part that involves cake). Setting goals definitely, helps us to stay on track. But there is so much pressure. “It`s a new year, I need to change something”, ” What have I accomplish in 2016? Nothing ! “The year passed away so fast and yet I am not a successful, have I failed ?”
When I was little I was a really introverted person. I would choose to spend my days playing with my dolls rather than going outdoors to play with other kids. I was in my own world, happy, being a mini-designer, creating stories and outfit of the day. This dream was left behind…
From blazers to shoes, chokers to bags, dresses to jumpsuits, haute couture to the high street, velvet is everywhere. Why is velvet so popular? What makes people shop velvet and what is the secret behind the trend?
It took me more than one year to get my blog off the ground because I was too scared of throwing myself into the digital world. A lot of different questions crossed my mind.

Plastic and illegal nets found in the ocean were recycled in June due to Adidas smart idea. They teamed up with Parley for the Oceans and created 50 pairs of shoes using these recycled yarn fibres.

In this continuous and busy rush called life, we forget to take care of the environment.
Travel. You will have time to worry, do some shopping, make plans and lists and again other plans. Cherish the present and live the moment. Yesterday`s date was a palindrome – spelt backwards the number 6102016 is unchanged, and today, well today is the special day too not because it`s Friday. Yes, it sounds cliché but we need a spur to realise that every moment is unique.
The blogosphere is affluent in “Back to school” posts and I must conform myself in writing one too. This year, I strayed the classic post “Autumn Outfit Ideas”. As inspiration, you can read the post I wrote last year here. Today, 5th September we are going to the museum. It is said that September is ideal to set new goals.

I wore this velvet dress two months ago but honestly I did not know what to write about it. I wanted a short and inspirational post but once and again, I tend to overthink the content and end up not writing at all.
