October

I always look forward to reflecting on what have happened in the last 30 days. I know that I have already mentioned this but it is so eye-opening process that helps me to prioritize and gives me the sense of achievement.

My professional life has been a centre of attention in October and whether right or wrong my priority on most days. Work-life balance is something that I struggle with and may need to address it in the near future.

As for my private life, the main highlight of the month would have to be our trip to Brighton. As my husband told me, it was a very original choice of destination but no regrets there… Seeing new places, taking everything in and memorizing is a real journey that I do not want to end.

The blog post you liked the most in October was beauty-related and can be found here if you missed it. The one you liked the least was a fairly recent style-related one, well-worth checking out in my opinion (available here).

I had a few fashion favourites lately, mostly clothing ones. To name just one or two, this coat from Zara is an absolute dream and the quality of the fabric is second to none. It reminds me of high-end giants coats like Joseph or MaxMara. Zara can be a difficult place to shop as the quality vary from item to item. That is why, I like to visit the store and get the feel of the item before buying anything.

Coat Zara

Another piece of clothing I have been wearing non-stop since I got it, is this silk shirt from & Other Stories. The fabric is very delicate, more spring appropriate but the way this shirt makes me feel is supper cosy and comfortable. It is a trusty staple that will stay in my closet for a very long time !

Shirt & Other Stories

Finally, I decided to develop my YouTube channel further and as a result I will try to publish at least one video a week. Creating videos is definitely more demanding than anything else I have tried before but the more I do it, the more pleasure and satisfaction I get out of it.

Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to hear from you very soon !!

What was your October like ?

Love,

July

July has come to an end and as usual I thought I will give you an update on what has been happening… Last month was a very intense one for me with work and my private life blending into one and demanding more and more from me on the daily basis.

The most memorable part of the month would be, without the shadow of the doubt, my trip to Italy. I loved everything about Tuscany and I really hope that we would be able to return many times…

Florence is by far of my favourite place I have been to… It is better that you can imagine, but crowds and heat can make it more difficult to enjoy…

My beloved city… Florence in its glory !!

Famous Chianti wine is being produced in Tuscany and it is the most consumed red wine in the whole USA !

I love Vespa scooters so much that I have been taking pictures wherever I saw them… Love the variety of colours too !!

July is always a good month when it comes to sales shopping and this year was no exception. Normally, sales would start much earlier but by this time the items are reduced to the maximum.

However, before I buy anything nowadays, I will ask myself if the item in question adds anything to my wardrobe ? If the answer is yes, I may be tempted.

I have not bought that many things, but I still managed to get a bargain or two. I really hope you will like these items as much as I do…

I got this Michael Kors last weekend from Flannels in Leeds and I love it ! I do not have anything like this in my wardrobe and I think it is a staple item that will stay with me for a very long time !!

IMG_1964

I wanted a decent leather jacket for some time now and when I saw this one by AllSaints in Bicester Village reduced by over 50 % I knew it is the one…

IMG_9855

I saw this skirt on Emma Hill YouTube channel and I instantly knew I have to get it although it was not on sale… You know then you know !!

I have also made some time this month for a little bit of culture and went to the cinema twice and to a rock concert. As much as I enjoyed all of the activities, the movie I would recommend more that nothing else this month is The Beguiled. The story is very twisted and watching it made me feel uncomfortable to say the least but it also made me to reflect. The decisions we make and the consequences that they bring can go much further that we can expect…

And finally, I have been working on my YouTube channel and managed to publish some videos. I have linked my latest one, comparing Chanel WOC and my opinion of this classic bag. I would be thrilled for you to watch it, subscribe to my channel and give me some support and feedback !!

Many thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you all very soon !!

Love,

Aggie xx

June

June has gone so fast that I have not had a chance to stop and reflect… It is something that I like to do whenever I closed a chapter in my life. It maybe after the end of the month, year or after a significant change in my circumstances. I try to look at the positives and address everything that I should have done that I have not… so I do not feel like I am drowning…

Last month have been better for me that I have expected. There were so many things that I was worried about that in the end turned up to be not so scary after all !!

I have also made some new purchases for summer time and I will be more than thrilled to share them with you in the very near future !! As I am currently enjoying little get away, my biggest priority were summer accessories and clothing. These are just few examples of what came to my possession lately…

Newest Gianvito Rossi sandals I have got on sale with more than 50 % off !!

For the sizing reference they fit true to size, I am size 37.5-38 and all of Gianvito Rossi shoes I own or ever tried are size 38…

New Topshop shirt (still on sale, available in stores in the UK) and Sensi Studio hat (I got mine on sale but the one linked above is exact one but unfortunatelly slightly more expensive…)

The blog post with the most amount of views last month was Few words about self-confidence and the one that attracted most likes was Responsible fashion !!

As I have mentioned before I am currently travelling and I will be keeping you posted on what I have been up to… For now I can show you my home for the next few days and I cannot imagine anything else more picture perfect xx

May

Months are flying and without even realising we are approaching summer time… I love all seasons but summer has something very special about is. That more relaxed vibe, less layers and sun kiss skin. Today I want to share with you what I have been up to last month and maybe show you some pictures I have not featured on this blog before.

May has been a very busy month for me work wise and I had not had a chance to travel much. Few day trips that is all what we had time for… Maybe June will be more generous when it comes to free time ?

As usual I hope to see you all soon !!

Last month… April

April has gone so fast and we are now in May. I would love to be able to wear more spring like items but I am guessing that I will have to wait a little bit longer for that !

April has been a good month for me on many levels. Personally, I had a chance to visit my parents and my grandma as well as developing my blog even further. More of you visit me here and I am most grateful for all of your comments, likes and I would like to say to each and everyone THANK YOU !

We have been busy taking more pictures for the coming Sundays and I cannot wait to share that with you…

Today I want to show you some of the things that happened in April and also give you a sneak preview of what is yet to come ! So remember to visit me coming Sundays for more…

March

March has been a very busy month for me. My workplace has kept me occupied and as it was the first month of running the blog I did not have any time to spare.
