I feel like every year around December people always say: wow, this year went by so fast!  However, personally I don't feel this way about 2018 at all.

I just wanted to quickly wish you Merry Christmas with these photos from last year.

The holiday season is well upon us and it's my first time ever spending it away from my family on the other side of the world. I have so many thoughts in my head about it. I've been traveling around for more than 3 years now so I'm quite used to being away from home but this time because everything is filled with Christmas advertisements portraying families and friends so I'm feeling the absence of it a little more. I wanted to share some of my tips and activities that help me to soothe myself when
 feeling homesick this time of the year.



The mustard skirt
This skirt is a must for autumn and winter and I'm pretty sure that more than 90 percent of the fashion bloggers have in their wardrobes,

It makes me very nostalgic to look back at these photos as I'm writing this from Shanghai - which is mostly known as the city of skyscrapers and a very quick paced life.

Here are a few snaps I took with my phone during my first three weeks here in Shanghai that I spent mostly with work, visiting the Line Friends store to spend all my money on BT21

We took these photos during my last week back home after a lovely family lunch and the best hotpot I've ever tried in my entire life - hence the happy look on my face.

Not that long ago a lovely, ethical and sustainable brand NetteRose was kind enough to send me

Last look from Budapest before I'm heading back to Asia for a while

I know we are already 2 months in autumn but this time I kinda just want to milk my appreciation for it so let me share my favorite things about this beautiful month and please let me know if you also share the same love for these kind of small but super lovely things about the season.


Hope you all had fun for Halloween this year and I wish you all a wonderful November! :)

Just another autumn look on a rather gloomy autumn day.

The obligatory autumn themed outfit post of the year since I still can't imagine a better shooting location than the nature at the moment.

It's been a few years since I've last been to Vienna and because it's so close to Budapest (literally a 2.5 hour drive!) I really wanted to take a short visit there

  I literally wait all year around for this time of the year so that I can start wearing the my typical autumny clothes and my favorite sweaters, but oh well, I'm having the time of my life for sure because of this weather at the moment. 

Oh how I miss this beautiful weather from last week! It's time to start to get used to wearing a bunch of layers again even though I'm still shocked how fast

I've made a post like this in a while back and you guys loveeeed it and since I'm also very fond of quotes and everything that is inspiring, eye-opening or just simply hilarious, I thought I'd share some of my current favorites with you again.
Have a lovely monday everyone! :)

I'm just totally in love with this weather and the fresh clean air and the leaves

When Bonprix approached me to work with them on this post I got really excited since I've been really eager to try a different kind of style for a while now. I must say I'm really happy with my picks as they're not only the kind of vintagey vibe that

Even though I'm not going back to school/college this year (yet), I always love wearing outfits that are typically considered with going back to school.

Oh September, finally!
I've mentioned before how excited I am for autumn right now

Hey there!
It feels good to be back after a much needed break from social media.

My good old neighbourhood and a good old fanny pack that I haven't worn since probably I was 12 years old. I love how all these trends are

It's been a fun week!
I didn't end up taking my camera with me on my holiday in Croatia but I took a bunch of snaps with my phone so here they are. We had a really nice time in the small but lovely town of Baska,

Welcome back!
I gave the title 'natural habitat' to this post because nature really is the one place where I feel like I can be myself

So I turned 21 yesterday.

God, it's good to be home!
After 5 months of traveling in Asia and living in small model apartments it feels really nice to get back my own room and privacy and home food haha.

I’ve been wanting to write about this topic for so long now because I feel like I’ve been vegan long enough to be able to share my experiences/hardships with being on a plant-based diet while traveling around the world especially in places like Asia where following this lifestyle can be a little bit challenging at times. 

The touristy days continue.

I'm usually always the first person to be up for touristing around in a new city the first day I arrive

My favorite place on Earth.

Can't believe I'm leaving in 3 weeks!

Happy Monday!
One of the things I'm missing the most when away travelling is my easy access to nature (I live in the suburban area of the capital and the nearest forest is about 5 minutes away from my house).
So I didn't mean to get overly dramatic in the title but as being someone working in the model industry, maintaining a healthy and glowing skin is essential in order to look good on castings and for the clients to like you (or at least it's a great advantage for sure). However sometimes it requires a lot of work and effort and experimenting to find a daily skincare routine that fits this lifestyle.

Not sure about the concept behind these photos we took the other day but I really like how they turned out (even though I was super tired this day + I'm still trying to adapt to the heat over here).
About the outfit: I'm starting to have a really hard time coming up with new outfit ideas since I've been living out of my suitcase for the past 5 months and most of my clothes are sweaters/winter coats and warm scarfs. Oh well.

Hello from sunny KL!
I know it's been a while but I needed some time to settle in after leaving Shanghai exactly two weeks ago.

Sad to leave this place just when the weather turned amazing but also very excited about the beginning of a new adventure and to explore a new place very soon!

Some snaps from the past two weeks from Shanghai which pretty much consisted of work & castings & traveling to another cities for work.
I've been wanting to post these photos for so long! If you follow me on instagram you probably know that I've made a little getaway to Bali about two weeks ago during Chinese New Year and it was probably one of the most amazing experience in my life so far.

Ohh Singapore, my heart, my soul!
It was so nice to be back in my favorite city even if just for a few days during Chinese New Year last month.

My favorite place to visit so far in the megapolis even though I haven't had much time yet to explore it properly.

Walking the streets of Shanghai looking for cool vintage markets just before Chinese New Year was the perfect opportunity to get some good shots of the city.










Wooh! Had the most exhausting (physically and mentally) week ever and it's still not over. On a more positive note, Shanghai has been experiencing snow for the first time this year in the past few days so that makes the super cold weather a bit more bearable.
Hope you're all doing good, sending hugs from here. ‹3
