...these are a few of my favorite things...

I've been really thinking a lot about the future of this blog and the direction it will take once I'll have the time to work more on it! (3 weeks left from corporate life! :) I feel like sometimes I'm all over the place and I should streamline the content a bit more. The main focus is and will be fashion, personal style and photography and I decided to do a cocktail post once a week mixing everything else I loved that week together into a delicious blend of everythingness. So as one of my all time favorite happy song from "The Sound of Music" says... these are a few of my favorite things this week! :)

1. Golden nails

I am obsessed with everything golden and this nail polish is not an exception either.

2. Instax Mini

 I'm seriously thinking about joining the 365 project and as a little extra I might just do that with an Instax Mini 7 or 50S. They are the new polaroids, except they produce smaller, businesscard like images! Cute!

3. A Beautiful Mess

 I LOVE this girl!!!

4. Vintage Effects

The secret of vintage looking photos revealed! :)

5. French Onion Soup

I made it for the 3rd time in 2 weeks! Of course without the bread or the cheese! :) Detox has been great and to be honest I almost forgot that I'm on a detox by the end of week 2. Overall I lost 2.5 kgs but I feel so much lighter and cleaner! I have now the power to say no to junk food and sweets and I'll continue my journey until I reach my goal!

6. YSL ring
The gold/blue is my favorite. :)

7. Vintage swimsuits


I adore the complete Modcloth vintage swimsuit collection, but this one must be my absolute favorite. I'm really counting the days till summer! I have the feeling that it will be an amazing one! :)

8. 70's floppy hats


I found the exact same one on sales :) Cannot wait to wear it!


9. CLICK Magazine


I read it from the first page to the last! Full of great photography tips!

10. THIS quote

Have a chilly Sunday Girls (and boys)! :)

Gabby / Gypsy*Diaries said...

@YAsmeen.... The link for the photo editing is in the post but it's called Toycamera Analog and I saw the Instax Mini on Ebay, but I bet you can buy it through the Fuji website as well!

Jessica Nicole said...

That gold nail polish is FAB!

How much do those cameras run? Im interested in the 365 project myself.

Just found out what that nail polish is: its from Minx (not YSL) NOT that you said it was, but that's what I thought initially. Hope you all go get it! I tried Sally Hansen Salon effects which I highly recommend!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

Loving the insta mini....how cool is that and the editing, perfect.

Anait said...

Love all of these, especially the YSL ring :)Happy Tuesday!

Oh, My Darling said...

Ooh, loving the idea of shiny gold nail polish! So fun!

theredcurry said...

Love the nails. It is not nail polish it is Minx, it is like a soft sticker that you add to your nails. I bought it at Asos, but it has to be done by a professional, mine went terribly wrong... I'm no pro, lol!

Loving the blog!

No joke.
