29 and on fire

I had my birthday on Saturday and I’m officially in my last year beginning with 2. I’m guessing next year I will freak out a bit, but for now I’m feeling great. I got to spent my birthday with most of my loved ones and I had an awesome time. The best thing was my cousin was here and I haven’t spent my birthday with him in quite a while. I got to dance and laugh and eat great food, ok and drink a lot, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. No matter that I’m getting older. The thing is that I had so much fin that I have no photos from the last 3 days. But as I’m still celebrating today at the office I thought it’s time to also share my new fiery hair. Hope you like it!

Star wars the force awakens review

Last Friday I finally got to see what I was waiting for since the first time I heard it was in production. I know the craze has been overwhelming. I was even discussing it it my cousin, who is also a big fan. But as he’s 5 years older he was wondering why the hype was that much. We trying to remember if it was was the same when the last 3 movies were released. And here comes the power of social media. However, hype or not (as you can see from the pic in my case it’s HYPE), the movie was absolutely all I was hoping for.

The story is captivating though not new and as a stand alone movie, it is far from disappointing.

The new characters are interesting, different and at the same time familiar. I love that we get to meet one of the Stormtroopers and that he’s fun and neurotic. Rey, a scavenger from a desert planet who doesn’t know her parents (ahem, Luke anyone)  is a great strong female center character. Kylo Ren as the bad guy is a nice mixture between a troubled young man and a powerful Sith with anger issues. I also loved that we got to see him without his mask. Poe is the dashing Xwing Pilot from the resistance and the owner of the cute BB8 robot. There are more new secondary characters and Han, Leia, Luke, Chewie, C3P0 and R2D2 all return for the enjoyment of old and new fans.

I won’t share any spoilers, but I’d say the story is similar to A New Hope. It’s not a bad thing as for older fans its an awesome nostalgia experience and for newer fans its a great introduction to the Star Wars universe.

I left the cinema wanting to know more why things have turned bad again and I look forward to a second viewing, hopefully when Martin gets home on Thursday 🙂

May the Force be with you !

Star Wars – the nerd in me awakens

In the wake of the release of Episode VII of the Star Wars saga – The force awakens, it’s perfectly normal to be obsessed with everything Star Wars-y. The last two weeks I’ve been watching the old movies and this trailer was released just in time for the nerd in me to explode with excitement. And the best thing is that I got tickets for me and my folks to see the movie at the premiere on the 18th December!

About the trailer – it looks epic. The new characters that weren’t in the teasers seem awesome and the fact that we see the bad guy in full is great. He looks super cool! And I love that there’s a possibility Luke to have gone all Darth Vader, so can’t wait for December. Oh, and one more thing, I really enjoyed the new vibe in the music, nice touch.

In addition, as it’s Friday and I try to share some interesting thing I’ve found on the Internet during the week, I think it’s only fair to share cool things related to Star Wars:

Fall checklist: the shoes

As you may know, I’m a big sucker for shoes. Some people (Martin) may even call me an addict. I have more that 50 pairs..yeah, I know, and I can buy shoes every day. But I try to control myself as best I can. Keeping that in mind, this season is one of my favorite one as I can put on all kinds of shoes. I can wear flats with almost everything and I can combine converse sneakers either with a moto jacket, a parka or a coat. If I want to be a little more fancy, I go for wedge boots or high heels. And I can’t survive my walks with Churchill without my rubber boots. Fall checklist: shoes

Fall checklist: the scarf

The next fall essential on my list is the scarf. Big, small, infinity, woolen, textile, monochromatic, colourful, with stripes, with fringe…I love them all. It’s one of my favorite accessories, especially for this season. And if you have a sensitive neck like me, the scarf is simply a must. You can pair it with shirts, t-shirts, tops and dresses and you’ll always look good and stay warm at the same time. Fall checklist: the scarf

Fall checklist: the moto jacket

 As the weather is getting colder in this part of the world, I, and I guess most people, start bundling up and craving more warm nights on the couch. I try to stay on trend, but there are a few essentials I’ve discovered work for every fall that comes and goes. I tend to share them every day of this week, so stay tuned.

#1 The jacket

Fall can be tricky – cold in the mornings and warm during the day, so I always wear a jacket. I have a few faux leather and denim ones, so I suggest you get at least one. If you go with the moto style, you can always try something like this:

Friday finds

Hey guys! This is something I’m considering trying. As I love to search the web for new and interesting things, most often linked to my interests, I’d like to share these finds with you. And what better day to do that than Friday – I’ve had all the work week to gather some very interesting things. I’d like to start with these:

The first one isn’t exactly a find but I’d love to share it nevertheless. It’s a project I’ve been working on from the start of the year and I’m really proud of. So, if some of you want to discover the beauties of my country, you can and must totally use this website, whose content is my doing:

The English version will be online soon, so I’ll keep you posted on this.

My other shares are proper finds. An inventive shoes designer whose flats can be turned into heels in one simple movement:

And these super cute jewelry I found on Etsy and really considering ordering one of those. You know I’m a sucker for animals:

Hat craze

I still haven’t shared the photos and experience from my travels from the last few months but I’m experiencing some technical problems… don’t ask. However, I can share with you my new craze-hats. After I cut my hair I found that I like how hats look on me. I even bought 5 or 6 different ones but haven’t wore them more than once. I decided to change that and I think it’s worth it. What do you think:

Paris week will continue soon,as I was a little under the weather. But today I decided to share today’s outfit as I’m super happy with it. The other day I finally went to a little vintage shop I was passing by for the last 6 months. After I’ve tried on 90% of the clothes, I bought 3 cute dresses and a blazer. This is one of the dresses – a blue Clockhouse piece with small flamingo print that I couldn’t resist. I matched it with white lace H&M platforms, a light blue H&M messenger bag, Swarovski stardust light blue bracelet, MAC Russian red lipstick and navy head scarf. I can’t wait to see what you think of the outfit.

Mints and Vespas

I think I found my favorite spring color and it goes great with my red hair, so double win. I matched my mint and bright yellow wedges with black jeans from H&M, mint top from Zara, denim jacket and my vintage bag with Vespas, that Martin bought me last year when we were at Legkada. This quirky accessory just makes me smile and completes the whole outfit. Stay tuned for the other accessories I’m loving right now..
