Burgundy Autumn

I'm back with a quick outfit post from today's look. Autumn is here guys, and I'm taking full advantage of the moody weather - one minute it's 25 degrees and the next one I feel like I need to cover up with a cozy scarf. Moments like these are perfect for layering but also being smart with choosing the right outfit for the right temperature. While it was still somewhat warm I decided to take out my Shein.com dress for a spin, and ever since I got it I've had this look envisioned in my head - the leather jacket, the Converse, the bag, ALL OF IT!
Hope you enjoy!

September Playlist | 2017

September was quite a ride. From travels to unknown countries, to seeing friends you haven't seen in a long time and meeting new people along the way - it was a good month. University started, and so did every other extracurricular which means that things are gonna get quite busy from now on, but I think that's good for me. This summer I had a lot of time to just be with myself, and if you knew me you'd know that overthinking is something I'm really good at. So, being busy for me means finding distractions and focusing my attention on certain things, not letting my mind wander about in the realm of "What if's" or "If I had done that differently".
Now that the reflecting part of the post is over, let's see what I've been listening to this month.

Definitely one of my fave songs in a while, Touch by The Code. I absolutely love the vibe of this track, chill but seductive at the same time. I've had it on repeat for weeks on end, plus I really think it goes with the weather we've been having at the moment - moody and rainy. You have to give this one a listen, trust me!

I don't know if it's just me but every time fall rolls around, I immediately turn to the old music from The Weeknd. This time around I've been listening to What You Need, more specifically this version.
I've said on multiple occasions that I prefer his older songs, so every time I find new renditions I'm more than happy!

Okay now onto the "guilty pleasure" part of the playlist. Camila Cabello has put out some cool songs since she's gone solo, and one of them is OMG featuring Quavo (BTW is it just me or is this guy literally everywhere?!). I love the vibe of this song, it's catchy and upbeat and it's been my go-to song for getting ready. "My God, you look good today" *insert Joey Tribbiani wink gif here*

Up next is Angel from Fifth Harmony. I know, shocking! But hey, just like Camila's song, this one is soo good too! It makes me feel all sassy and stuff (yeah, I realize how nerdy that sentence sounds, but it's true haha). I'm sure you've heard these songs at least once on the radio, so it's nothing new by now.

And for the last song, this one is a bit of a throwback because It's already been featured on a playlist, but I had to put it again because it's THAT GOOD! Get You Good by Roy Woods is one of my fave songs, and whenever I'm listening to music that I already have on my phone, this is the first one I play.

Hope you enjoyed this short playlist, the truth is I haven't been able to find a lot of new music lately, so I've just been re-listening to old songs. Click HERE for the whole playlist on Youtube, or the individual titles above. Have a nice October!

A trip to... #10

The date: 06/09/17
The destination: Budapest, Hungary
The plan: see as much as possible in a 7 day period
The outcome: 1000+ photos, a newfound love for this city & memories for a lifetime

It all began with a simple idea to use the free time my friends and I have in September before university starts. It ended with getting together on a Friday afternoon, booking plane tickets and an Airbnb in Budapest. From that moment on, I spent my free time planning and making endless lists of places we can visit, for a couple of reasons:
1. I don't like to waste time. So carefully planning out what we want to see means that we will use our time there wisely.
2. The thought of traveling to another country for the first time, where you don't speak the language, you don't know the mentality of the people and you could easily get lost gives me major anxiety. With advance planning, I feel like I'm more in control of the situation.
3. It allowed me to daydream about what Budapest is like, and even though I am a tourist I want to experience (at least some) things like a local.

Next thing you know, three girls board on a plane not knowing what to expect from this new adventure. And I can now say, I feel like we've truly seen Budapest. Well, perhaps not all of it, I'm sure there are so many hidden gems that we've missed, but walking minimum 13km a day sure made it feel like there's not a single street we've not walked through.
I hope you enjoy this photo diary and it teleports you to this wonderful city in one way or another.

Little Striped Dress

This is officially the longest it's taken me to write a blog post - ever. One writer's block and a two and a half hour "nap" later, I think I can do this. I never do things "just casually". I've never been that kind of person, I guess you can call me a perfectionist to some extent. This is just an example, I've been racking my brain about what to write for the entirety of my morning because I wanted things to be done quickly, and this was getting in the way. I seriously need to chill down, so if you have any tips leave them in the comments below. 
Anyway, the thing that I wanted to grab your attention was NOT me "not knowing to take things easy" but this super cute LSD! Before you go and think, wow I never thought I would read a post about a psychedelic drug on this blog, I am here to inform you that LSD can ALSO mean Little Striped Dress! Haha, gotcha there. I found the perfect one over on Zaful.com, so if you like what you see click HERE to order yours!

August Playlist | 2017

Um, August is over. And I don't know how I feel about that. It's weird knowing that I still have September until university starts again, and for the first time EVER I'm excited about September being so close because I may or may not be going on a little trip. Not spoiling anything, you'll just have to check out the blog for new exciting posts coming soon.
Anyway, I found myself in a music rut this past month, nothing sounded exceptionally interesting to me. So that's why the playlist is a bit short but hey, the songs that are on here are golden.

Gavin James - For You (Bearcubs Remix). I stumbled onto this song randomly on Instagram and can I just say, I think it was destiny. This is my favorite song of the month hands down, I have it on the second I wake up, when I'm getting ready for something, when I'm editing photos - it's just my go-to song because it's so easy to listen to and it lifts me up. The original version, on the other hand, Is very (veryyy) depressing, it's a beautiful piece but the fact that it took me one listen for me to start crying by the end of it... I think that it was a combination of the lyrics + the video itself. That's some sad stuff man...

Far East Movement is SO underrated, I genuinely enjoy their music and it pains me that they don't have any new music out. That resulted in me trying to find something I haven't heard from them yet and so I found Don't Speak ft. Tiffany. I think they need to make a comeback and bless us with some awesome EDM music.

Astrid S. is back on the playlist with two songs: Just For One Night and Does She Know.
Just For One Night is lighthearted and fun, with love as the main theme. Sometimes this is just what you need, to sing your lungs out and dance around your room like an idiot. Does She Know is slower, but the tempo still keeps the song upbeat.

I think I'm not the only one who's been obsessed with Kaleo's Way Down We Go these past few months. That voice, oh my god. It's the perfect moody/chill out song that lets your mind wander. For me, when I listen to this song all I imagine myself in a forest, with trees surrounding each corner my eye can catch. It may sound a bit silly, but that's the beauty of music, it has the ability to transport your mind to another place.

If you've ever wondered what Britney Spears' Toxic would sound like if it was produced by Disclosure circa 2012, then Eden Prince - Toxic ft. Marco Foster is the song for you. Such a cool song, vibes for days!

As always, click here for the whole playlist on Youtube. Until next month, bye!

Monthly Moments | August

Monthly Moments is here! Sorry for missing a month, but this time around I'm back with a really cool event that takes place every year in Skopje. Makedox (according to their website) is a young and avant-garde festival celebrating the creative documentary film. Every year since 2010 KurshumliAn has been the home to this lovely event which is the perfect surrounding for all of the films, workshops, live performances and doc-talks (under a fig tree I may add). It is truly a magical experience, and I and my friends decided to go to the screenings scheduled for last night, Tuesday. 
These photos don't compare to the calm atmosphere in Kurshumli, so if you are in Skopje I strongly suggest you check it out for the last couple of days. 


Time for a little life update: I spend my days trying to study, I end up looking at stupid videos on Youtube for an hour straight, I regret doing so and I try to study once again, but I end up in the same cycle as before. Honestly, I know I put myself into this situation and it's no one's fault, but come on Elena when will you learn...
BUT there are perks when I try to "study" - I suddenly get so many ideas about blogging, photo shoots, outfits, blog post ideas etc. In other words, my mind focuses on everything but the thing it's supposed to be focusing on. I know I'm not the only one who gets sudden bursts of inspiration mid reading about Chaucer, right? Anyways, I got a fairly large blogger mail package from various shopping sites, so I decided to start off with this super cute T-shirt from Zaful.com. I mean come on, it's baby pink and it says Paris with an embroidered flower - what more could you want!
