Aside from a terrible sunburn all over my back, endless hours spent on the beach my the water in the tremendously hot city of Nice have resulted in a slight tan in some parts of my body like my face and my hands, which makes this nail polish stand out so much more. After my first visit in an American Apparel store I fell so in love with its simplicity I had to buy a few things including this nail polish and the sunflower shorts I've been seeing all over the web.

 Skirt- Zara | Shirt- Cooperative | Sandals- River Island | Glasses- Zara

I feel so relieved to finally have began summer. I needed a little break from the world which is exactly what I got this past week when I went away to a little place in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of my friends and met a lot of new people where I charged my batteries and I feel so refreshed and calm, despite having to wake up at 7 every day and going to bed past midnight. Now I'm back home (although can you call a place stuffed with halfway unpacked boxes "home"?) for just a day to keep unpacking to make my room somewhat nicer and more bearable to live in and later I'm heading out to Nice. I hope you all have an amazing summer!

I'm usually not one to wear eyeshadow; I like to keep my look very simple, like I have no make-up on. However, when my family from Luxemburg came this morning to help us out with all the agitating things we need to get done before we move, I got a little gift that might just change my relationship with eyeshadow. Look at it. It's so gorgeous and I think it's the perfect set for anyone who isn't that into eye-shadow in case I ever feel like stepping out of my comfort zone and fancying it up for a night out or whatnot.

This is it, the countdown has officially begun. 7 days till I pack up and leave the place that has been my home for the past three and a half years (well, we're already packed). It seems crazy and not so long ago I was starting high school here, thinking I’d graduate with the people I’m leaving behind now. I guess that’s one of the few downsides of an international school; people part ways in the most unexpected times. And this time calls for lasts: last spontaneous adventures, last parties (really going for it this week and attending not one but three), last exams (tomorrow) and last ventures to the park with my committed photographer and best friend Jennifer.  And although it’s hard to think about the end being so close I have to hold in my desired cathartic cry and be realistic for at least a few more days that call for being extremely organized. I have a week of packing, studying and goodbyes before I head out into the exciting future that’s waiting for me back where I came from all those years ago.

The past month has just been filled with exam preparation and now I can finally say that I only have one to go so I haven't been really rocking any fancy outfits to school, just anything comfortable. Today I wanted to share my favorite smelly products. Now, I've never been into buying new body lotions and perfumes myself but I get so many nice things as gifts and before I know it I am halfway finished with them. So here are a few of my favorites that I wear the most often.

This is my all time favorite perfume, I got it for Christmas two years ago from my aunt and at first I hated it but i started using it and it's my perfect scent. It smells so... clean? The official description of the scent is something with pomegranate, lotus flower and magnolia which I can sort of smell but it's really one of a kind. Too bad i only have to small bottle...

Crop top- Truly Madly Deeply | Trousers- BDG | Shoes - Topshop | Ring - NastyGal | Earcuff - River Island

I'm so sad to say goodbye to this crop top. When I first saw it I was blinded by it's ideal print and cut but unfortunately my stomach and this top don't go too well together. At least not yet. I wanted to shoot and outfit that instantly popped into my head when I first saw in in the store before I return it to the store, although I must say that the thought of getting 40 euro back for this stunning yet simple shirt is making me feel a little bit better about returning it.

It's been a fair while since I've done a wishlist post. June is just around the corner, which means by huge post-exam shopping trip with my mom is coming soon. I also hope some of these items go on sale in the summer, like this gorgeous suede fringe jacket that I've had my eyes on for months. Although it's almost summer and everyone is pulling their sundresses out, this month black, leather, lace, burgundy and shades of green are dominating my wishlist which is nothing new. I guess some things never change. These will forever be my favorite colours/textures, no matter the season, although I did manage to sneak in those slightly summery mint flats into my wishlist.

Minęło już trochę czasu od mojej ostatniej Wishlist. Czerwiec jest tuż za rogiem, co oznacza moją po-egzaminową wycieczkę na zakupy z mamą. Mam jednak nadzieję, że niektóre z tych rzeczy będą przecenione w lato, na przykład ta cudowna zamszowa kurtka z frędzlami, na którego punkcie mam obsesję od kilku miesięcy. Mimo, że zbliża się lato i wszyscy wyciągają na wierch swoje letnie sukienki, w tym miesiącu czerń, skóra, koronki, bordowy i odcienie zieleni dominują moją listę życzeń, co nie jest żadną nowością. Niektóre rzeczy po prostu zawsze pozostają takie same. Te kolory chyba zawsze będą moimi ulubionymi, nie ważne jaka jest pora roku, chociaż muszę dodać, że udało mi się wcisnąć te nieco letnie miętowe balerinki do tej listy.

Top- Zara | Skirt- Sparkle & Fade | Jacket- Zara | Shoes- Converse | Jewelry- Zara, Topshop, Mango, Cheap Monday | 

Now, this is what I'm talking about. After an inconsistent month or two of constant rain interrupted by short sunny days it finally feels like spring. I love everything about this outfit; I got this new skirt and ring a few weeks ago in Urban Outfitters and I've been just waiting for the perfect day to wear them. Also, I almost forgot how comfortable my converse are. I haven't worn them for months because I was afraid I'd get mud on them when it was raining but the weather is finally perfect for wearing them and hopefully it will stay this way for the next month *fingers crossed*.

Tee- Cheap Monday | Shorts- Devil Shape | Cardigan- H&M | Boots- Deena & Ozzy | Headband- Zara | Lipstick- MAC Up The Amp

Surprisingly, this weather is very hard to come across in Belgium, even in May. In fact, this month has been the opposite of a spring season; I can't remember a day without rain (I even had to switch out my coats *sigh*) and I'm pretty sure there is a virus going around the school because a couple people, including myself, have been out with a runny nose, headaches, coughing and whatnot. Imagine my relief when, after three days of recovery and after a depressing couple of days, the sun finally came out.

As you might have noticed, I barely every leave the house without a lipstick on. They have become an essential addition to my daily outfits and my collection of lipsticks is progressively growing. When my mom went to New York with her sister I took the opportunity to ask her to bring me back some MAC lipsticks. Now, don't get the wrong impression, we DO have them in Belgium and Poland but in both places they're twice as expensive, if not more, and i think it's common knowledge that everything is cheaper in the States. My mom brought me back  my first ever MAC lipsticks: Up The Amp and Velvet Teddy. I know this "review" will be useless to everyone but it's just my first experience with them and I want to share that I'm amazed by how perfect they are in every way. I love the application, texture, colors and everything else about them. And besides, Velvet Teddy? Cutest name ever. 

Mogliście zauważyć, że żadko wychodzę z domu bez szminki. Stały się one istotną częścią moich strojów na codzień i moja kolekcja szminek progresywnie się powiększa. Skorzystałam z wizyty mojej mamy w Nowym Jorku i poprosiłam ją, aby przywiozła mi szminki MAC. Nie zinterpretujcie tego w zły sposób, szminki te są oczywiście sprzedawane zarówno w Belgii jak i w Polsce ale w obu miejscach kosztują dwa lub nawet trzy razy tyle, a wszystko jest znacznie tańsze w Stanach. Dostałam moje pierwsze szminki MAC'a: Up The Amp i Velvet Teddy. Jestem zachwycona ich perfekcją. Wszytko jest w nich idealne, od ich konsystencji do intensywności kolorów. Nie zapomnijmy także o ich nazwach. Velvet Teddy to chyba najsłodsza możliwa nazwa. 

Have a great day!

Pants- H&M | Shirt- Zara | Hat- Zara | Shoes- Deena & Ozzy | Necklace- Urban Outfitters | Rings- H&M, Mango, Topshop

The weeks leading up to my big move have been extremely stressful. I've been facing a lot of choices and recently I made a decision about leaving my home in Belgium forever the evening after our last day of school which I was trying to postpone as much as I could but I couldn't really help it because exams to my dream school are taking place the next morning and then there is no point in going back. Besides, I've had to clear out every corner of my room, leaving my bookshelf and closet almost completely empty. I've been saving up money for months to go on a huge shopping spree and I've already placed some exciting orders from Nastygal and Topshop which I'm really looking forward to getting in a couple of weeks so I can finally fill up that empty closet of mine. So far, I'm stuck with a little bit over 10 t-shirts and some pants. I'm thinking of setting up a clothing rack with my more "exciting" pieces which will make dressing up in the morning easier... (This has very quickly turned into a stream of consciousness, I just had so much to share.)

Sweater- Montego | Trousers- Zara | Shoes- Deena & Ozzy | Sunglasses- Zara | Bracelet- Lilou

I can't believe I'm (almost) fifteen  and these shoes are only my first pair of heels I've ever owned. They look absolutely perfect but walking in them has been very challenging so far. It sounds ridiculous because they're not even that tall but I spent the whole weekend walking around the house in them, training myself to walk like a normal human being without slouching. It's work in progress but the pain is worth it. They're the perfect pair of cut-out boots I've been hunting for since March and I'm so happy to finally have found them. 
Nie mogę uwierzyć, że mam (prawie) piętnaście lat i te buty to tylko moja pierwsza para obcasow, jakie kiedykolwiek mialam. Wyglądają absolutnie idealne, ale chodzenie w nich okazalo sie bardzo trudne. Brzmi to smiesznie poniewaz nie sa az tak wysokie, ale spędziłam cały weekend chodzac w nich po domu, cwiczac chodzeniejak normalny człowiek bez garbienia sie. Sprawia mi to ogrowny trud, ale bol jest calkowiecie tego warty. Są idealna parą wyciętych butow, na ktore polowalam od marca i jestem tak szczęśliwa, że w końcu je znalazłam.

I sincerely apologize for having been absent for the entire month of March. I won't make any excuses- I've just been lazy. Now that I'm starting to notice that I have a few regular readers (please keep leaving me those lovely comments, they really do make my day) I need to start being more consistent. I've just flooded the blog with a few overdue posts that I've had been meaning to publish this month but I haven't gotten around to it, so forgive me for cheating and changing up the dates- I like to pretend I'm consistent and organized, just so the blog looks neat. If you don't mind me being completely erratic enjoy catching up :)

Szczerze przepraszam za moją nieobecnosć podczas całego marca. Nie będę się usprawiedliwiać- jestem bo prostu czołwiekiem leniwym. Zaczynam zauważać kilku regularnych czytelników (proszę, nie wahajcie sie zostawiać mi komentarzy, które naprawdę sprawiają mi ogromną radosć) wiec dla nich muszę stać sie bardziej konsekwentna. Wlasnie zalałam tego bloga zaległymi postami, które miałam zamiar wstawić w tym miesiacu, ale nie mogłam sie ogarnać, wiec wybaczcie za oszukiwanie i zmienianie dat- lubię udawać, że jestem zorganizowana i konsekwentna, żeby mój blog wyglądał czysto. Enjoy :)

Five O'Clock Heroes ft. Agyness Deyn - Who

P.S. The quality of those isn't great because I was smart enough to stand on white sand which absolutely blended with the shirt :/

This beautiful purse was in the stash of stuff my sister was giving away and when I saw it I grabbed it immediately. I like to call it "double vintage" because she found it a couple of years ago at a flea market and now it's been passed down to me. Its quality is surprisingly good and the entire purse is great, from the pleats on the leather to the lining.

Skirt- Stradivarius | Boots- Tommy Hilfiger | Jewelry- Mango | Friend's Jacket- Naf Naf 
Those of you who have older sisters will know what I'm talking about when I say that spring cleaning is definitely a fun time. Two weeks ago my sister put three giant bags of her old clothes in front of me and said "Dig in." Of course, most of these things were too small, too worn out or just out of style, but I did find a few amazing things. We both bought this skirt a few years ago, back when I was the annoying little sister and I needed to get the exact same skirt. Sometime throughout the years mine ended up in her closet and hers in mine. Long story short, I was happy to find my skirt in her giveaway pile because it's a bit bigger and more comfortable to wear.
