RED FOR THE WIN

letters-to-a-red-for-the-win1letters-to-a-red-for-the-winhm-studioaw2017hm-studiohm-beautyaw17Okay, you’ll probably never see me rocking a dark red top, but when it comes to red with orange undertones –  now we’re talking! I can always find a way to wear pair of bold red trousers or an accessory with red motives. And as a bonus this year the red is all over the catwalks! I chose to wear my favourite high waist wide leg trousers by Selected for  H&M’s Studio AW17 launch event that took place last week.  Aw, and by the way, I was crazy impressed by their Studio collection. I went there with low expectations to come out with a big smile on my face and some fresh  outfit ideas for the upcoming season.

And because my Selected pants are sold out, you can find a few alternatives of my pants below.

Рядко ще ме видите решена в тъмно червено. А още по-рядко с кърваво червен топ или лак за нокти.. Но когато става въпрос за червено с оранжев нюанс!? Това е цветът, на който не мога да устоя. Винаги ще намеря как да комбинирам аксесоар с червeни мотиви или искрящо червени панталони. За събитието на  H&M Studio AW17  избрах панталони с висока талия и много широки крачоли…! Червеното в момента присъства на всички модни ревюта, така че ако искате да сте в крак с модата вадете всичко червено!  И да не забравя – новата колекция на  H&M надмина очакванията ми! Страхотни модели, много минимализъм и като бонус – хайлайтър на нивото на любимия ми Watt’s up на Benefit.

Отдолу може да видите няколко страхотни червени панталони. Предлагам ви различни модели – някои елегантни, а други доста екстравагантни. Кой ви е любимият модел?

GETTING LOST IN FLORENCE

letters-to-a-florence31letters-to-a-florence9-copyletters-to-a-florence3-copyI’m a control freak.
That I have learned the hard way.
It’s only when I travel that the control freak retreats and my true self takes over. My idea of the perfect trip is to get lost as many times as possible.
And you don’t necessarily need to turn your Google Maps off to let yourself get lost. You can do that by letting yourself experience everything that crosses your path having no expectations…making no strict plans.letters-to-a-florence1 Espadrilles by Tommy Hilfiger (here) // Shorts by Missguided (here) // Top Boohoo.com White Cami (here) // Sunglasses Quay Australia (here) // Headband Stradivarius (here) // Alternative to my bag by DECADENT (here)letters-to-a-florence5Philip and I didn’t get the chance to travel before we had Sofia… But now that we’ve begun to travel, I’m relieved to find out that we both want to do things on a whim. I’d considered in the past creating a list of all the cafes I wanna visit (referring to other blogs), exhibitions, and parks. But I somehow always end up going in a completely different direction… which often takes me exactly where I want to be.
Our first day in Florence was our first day of getting lost in a city that we thought was too small and uneventful… but then took us by surprise.

Трудно ми е да пусна контрола…с едно изключение – когато пътувам. Само и единствено тогава се оставям на момента и не планирам дните си час по час. Наслаждавам се на всичко, с което се сблъскам без никакви очаквания и надежди.

Както вече съм споделяла с вас, отношенията ни с Филип се развиха прекалено бързо и в опита ни като двойка до момента липсваха пътешествия и почивки заедно. Затова и това лято решихме да си „подарим“ взаимно общи пътувания, което се оказа страхотно решение! Чувствам се още по-щастлива и благодарна, че животът ми ме събра с Филип, защото се оказа, че и двамата сме на една абсолютно една и съща вълна относно пътешествията. И двамата отказваме да си правим списъци с места, които искаме да посетим, както и предварително планове. Взимаме решения спонтанно… и… някак винаги поемаме в неочаквана посока… Най-често тя е обратната на тъплата, но ни отвежда точно там, където най-много искаме да бъдем.

Първият ни ден във Флоренция се изгубихме. И това беше най-хубавото изгубване! Попаднахме на изненадващи места, на които си създадохме страхотни спомени и изживяхме истински вълнуващи емоции.

The Flamingo Is More Than A #Hashtag

flamingo3I really tried, okay? I spent a day in the mountain, where a couple of friends celebrated their birthday. During the day and while the others were sipping ‘rakia’, I hid under the shed and spent some alone time to reflect.
Now that I got back to doing YouTube videos /here/, I felt the urge to plan, plan, plan and scribble down in my notebook every topic I wanted to cover. No more procrastinating and finding excuses, right!? I WAS ON IT! Until I fell asleep on that cute sofa.
It felt good.flamingo1t-shirt by Jake*s (here) or  Missguided Sweatshirt (here) //RALPH LAUREN High Waist shorts (here) // Watch by BOOM WATCHES (here) // ARNE JACOBSEN Design Letters Notebook (here)// Sneaks by REEBOK (here)pinkflamingo-copyThe short nap revived me. I woke up by the sound of the rustling leaves and adorable giggle of some kids, playing ‘Hide and Seek’ around the shed. I found myself in the middle of nowhere totally engulfed in my thoughts. The city girl in me retreated for a while and the dreamer took over for a while.
Did you know that the Flamingo is more than that inflatable #hashtagged prop? The Flamingo as a totem symbolises the time of rebirth…that magical time when you’re craving to cleanse your heart and soul and get rid of all the clutter.
Start with getting rid of your negative thoughts.

antoinettepepelove-copy I went out from the shed only to see Sofia that was in her grandad’s hands. Escaping the noise, the vanity, the stress even for a day gave me a new perspective on life.

There is something  magical about being in tune with your surroundings and yourself. Loving yourself for who you are and embracing your flaws as being yet an essential part of that unique and perfect creation that you are.
It’s a feeling. A feeling of completeness. It’s no longer your good and bad sides. It’s just You.
And it’s inspiring.
Choose the Flamingo.

LIFE IN SOFIA: 3 BAKERIES/CAFES I KEEP COMING BACK TO

letters-to-a-sofia-bakeriesBulgaria isn’t Sunny Beach and there is certainly more to it than its coastline.
Situated in the foothills of Vitosha Mountain, where approximately 12 years go I did my first ollie on a dopest K2 board hehe, Sofia is the underrated capital that has a lot to offer if you just give her a chance.
And now that I’m gonna spend some time here, I thought to share with you some cool places to visit if you’re planning to set foot in here anytime soon. sofia-bakeries3 Shorts by Jacqueline De Yong (here) / Top by FOREVER 21 Alternative (here)/ Bag by LEO WULFF (here) / Espadrilles by Pieces (here) / Sunglasses by LE SPECS  (here) /  Watch by ABBOTT AND MOSLEY (here)sofia-bakeries1   + TOVA  Marin Drinov Str. No 30
A hipster/artsy space which offers both a cafe area and space for various cultural activities – from exhibitions to fundraising workshops, meetings, presentations – you can see it all. A friend recommended me + TOVA and she was right – their LATTE is the best! And so is its price. And if you have a sweet tooth just like me, you will be facing a tough decision – should it the cheesecake or almond cake? Go for the BISCUIT one if you ask me! And then try all the other ones 🙂
+TOVA  next time you drop by the interior would have most probably changed.

Hlebar Oborishte Str. No 16
Denmark made a pro when it comes to bakeries. And let me tell you HleBar lives up to the Danish bakery standard, which, let’s be honest, is damn high.
Philip fell in love with their cream cheese sandwich (and industrial interior!), which is more of a cheese with bread sandwich – yep – there is a lot of cheeeeeeese on it!
‘For me?  Some scrambled eggs, a banitsa with mushrooms (I know,right?)… and a cup of cappuccino, please’

Le Salon Aux Fleurs Oborishte Str. No 37
A cute little café situated right across HleBar that has a lot to offer. From a marvellous cheese/mezze platter for all you non-breastfeeding winos, to yummy cakes, Scandinavian bruschetta topped up with salmon, of course, and a provance interior. But hey, it’s still summer, so make sure to get a table outside and order a cup of latte macchiato, while observing the passing by strangers…who sometimes walk by completely discarding your presence, or smile and cheekily say Cheers’ (Nazdrave!) 🙂 life-in-sofia Which one you would try first?

HEY YOU NEWBIE MOMS – GO FOR THE HOT PANTS.

letters-to-a-summer-in-the-cityOh, those summer days in the city. Asphalt – Burning Hot. Streets – Emptiness Overload.
Ah, I missed falling asleep to the sound of the sirens and buzz of the passing by pedestrians high from what the city has to offer.
Being a mother is more than a legit excuse to spend your days up until your little one turns one – into a pair of jogging pants, with your hair up in a ponytail and nails chipped and not so fresh.
SCRATCH THAT.
Hey, you newbie mom – go and dig out from the depth’s of your wardrobe a pair of hot pants.
Let your hair loose and put on a big smile.
I have a ritual – to get out of the flat at least ones during the day.
And now that I live in the centre of the town – how not to rock the cutest outfits I own? letters-to-a-summer-city1 Hot Pants MISSGUIDED (here) // SHOES by ANGULUS  (here) // Sunglasses by LE SPECS  (here) // TOP by LAUREN RALPH LAUREN  (here) //  Watch by ABBOTT AND MOSLEY (here) // Bag by DECADENT (here)summer-in-the-city1-copy  And what’s your favourite summer – not shouting ‘I’m a mommy’ outfit?
