You probably know by now that I’m not the girliest girl. I generally try to avoid super feminine pieces because they don’t suit me. However, I like pleated skirts (which is basically as girly as it gets) and I think I found the way to wear them and at the same time to stay true to my style.
I got this skirt after my friend gave it away to me because she couldn’t find the way to wear it. And I don’t blame her. It’s not the easiest peace to wear if you don’t want to pair it with something simple to be safe and look basic. So that’s how I came up with the idea to show 3 different outfits where I have combined one item in various ways.
DISCLAIMER – I shot these looks in the freezing cold, so I’m trying REALLY hard to look normal in these photos. You can see the struggle in my eyes. #fightingthearcticwind

This was one of those weeks where everything seemed to go my way. Nothing crazy happened, but I really love falling back into my routine at home. This past week, I decided it was time to get back on track with my health. In effort to make the slow transition, I started by adding in a few minor goals and one of them is to start taking my own prepared food to work because it makes such a huge difference! I spend so much money when everyday I go to eat in a restaurant during my lunch break and that food is not even great…
Also, I am proud to report that today is day seven of my daily exercising. Actually, I was doing that the whole last year but in December I had a little break and now I’m finally back on track! It is so nice not to feel guilty about it anymore.
I hope you all had a great week 🙂 Happy weekend!

You thought this trend would never come back into style but I‘ve been waiting for it, as long as I saw my granny wearing it. If you ask me, the beret is more than just a seasonal trend. It’s a true classic, that would go with any outfit. Besides, who doesn’t like to look French?
There are lots of styles with pompoms, pearls, leather and other embellishments out there right now, but I always prefer the classic ones without any distractions. The beret has long been associated with creatives throughout history and for me they are always associated with poets, french girls and old ladies in the church on Sundays.
However, I have one main suggestion on how to wear it. The beret should be pulled fully over the head, covering half of the ears. Avoid the beret being overly on top of your head else you might have to say au revoir to this season’s coolest accessory.

2017 has actually been a really phenomenal year for me and it’s a bit scary to admit that. Sometimes it’s terrifying to say that you’ve been happy because you’re afraid that it will all disappear. 2017 has hands down been the single best year of my entire life and it seems like as I get older, things just keep falling into places more and more. That means that 2018 will be even better!
Let’s take a little moment to look back & forward.
Since traveling has always been my passion I like to look back to places that I have visited through the year. I have started 2017 with a weekend in London, and afterwards I traveled to Nice, Monaco, Cinque Terre, Pisa, Florence, Venice, Verona, Lake Como and it was the best trip of my life! Also, we had the chance to visit Gdynia, as it was the city where Opener festival took place, and Riga where I spend a Christmassy weekend with my friends.
At the end of the year we have decided to re-decorate our small apartment and make it cozier, lighter and more practical. With just a few small changes it became my favorite place and as soon as it’s finished I will share some pictures with you!
Finally, 2017 wouldn’t have been the same without Karolis. This guy is the most caring, patient, inspiring, supportive and hilarious person I know and I can’t wait to get 2018 started with him. Let’s explore, cuddle, sleep, travel, dance, eat, relax, take pictures, go to festivals, laugh, eat, camp and watch YouTube videos together!
Who’s ready for another amazing year?!

Can you believe that Christmas Eve is already at the end of this week? At this point I really like planning out my days, to be sure I have time for everything and to get rid of that feeling like time is running out which is not that easy when you still have some presents to buy. However, this is not the time to stress, but the time to just enjoy. That‘s why I took last weekend away and just enjoyed our festive trip around Lithuania and what‘s most important I had some time to spend near the sea!
Have you ever thought what your life would look like if you lived somewhere by the sea? In a little house on the beach of Bali or in a big luxurious apartment in Monaco. Because I think about that quite often and that‘s why I appreciate every chance that I get to spend there. It was always a dream of mine and I hope that one day it will come true 🙂
So after all, Christmas is not a deadline to get your whole life in order, complete everything undone this year, to clean your home 100% and do everything you can think of. Remember to relax, have moments for yourself and do what you really enjoy doing.

This weekend, me and my friends went on a trip around Lithuania to find the most beautiful Christmas tree in a country. We managed to capture 10 different Christmas trees around Lithuania and some of them looked really impressive. My personal favourite was a tree in Klaipėda which is quite simple but at the same was just like from a Christmas postcard. The weather was just perfect for the occasion since it was snowing almost the whole time and all the Christmas markets felt even more magical and festive. I know that the quality of these pictures isn‘t the best because they were taken with my phone but take a moment and pick your favourite Christmas tree from these ten different cities!

It’s 11 days left until Christmas and I’ve wrapped some of my presents. Every year I set aside a whole afternoon or evening, put on some Christmas music and lose myself in a mountain of paper, ribbons and other decorations. The only thing which is really time-consuming, is the shopping of the “ingredients”. If you love Christmas season as much as I do, you’ll completely freak out in the Christmas department and admire every ornament for like 10 seconds until you spot an even prettier one.
For me, the joy is in the details: adding the finishing touches to my decorated home or making a gift extra special with pretty tags, ribbons or anything else that makes it look unique. This time, I chose brown paper which in my opinion looks the best and decorated it with everything that I collected during this week, so take a look and guess which one is for you!
Happy Wrapping 🙂

If you read Blogmas, you probably noticed that a couple of posts are missing. Honestly, I’ve been so sick, that I‘ve just been curled up in bed, watching La La Land and trying to drink as much herbal teas as possible. But now I‘m back and hopefully I‘ll go all the way untill Christmas 🙂 Within the past half a year, blogging has become my favourite thing to do, but not always the easiest. This struggle is real amongst many blogs I read – we are all united by the fact that our favourite hobby takes so much out of us. There are a few bloggers that I love reading and think “one day I’ll be this great” and even if I never get to be that great, at least I’m doing my best. If you enjoy a good read and appreciate other people’s work then I really recommend you check out their blogs.
I’ve been following Victoria for about three years now. Her style is amazing and she knows exactly how to show off her down to earth personality through many articles about fashion and lifestyle. You can really tell she is so in love with her job and her passion makes me wanna do more on my blog as well.
I am so, so happy I came across Lydia, her social media channels, blog and youtube are all perfect. She is undoubtedly one of the best in her field. Lydia has so much attention to detail but still manages to show her hilarious personality through all of her work. She writes more about luxury purchases but we can all dream, right?
I came across Josie when she first started her YouTube channel. And even though her style is not really my style I kept reading her blog because I saw how rapidly it was growing from the beginning. She is a real hard worker and I’m so glad that she now has a successful business from it.
Janni can often be found traveling the globe with her boyfriend, whom she often talks about. Her fans can read about their adventures in her blog, which she originally started simply to share her life with the world. She posts almost daily so there you can find lots of amazing pictures and videos because she has her own YouTube channel as well.
She is a lithuanian lifestyle blogger and digital creative empowering lots of young writers to blog. I can easily say that she taught me a lot when I have just started my blog and didn’t know a thing. So if you want to start a blog or need a new design for your current one, you know where to go.

Last week, I was occupied with so many things that I didn‘t even have a chance to cook or bake anything. This week I decided to really make an effort and use my kitchen more so I spent the whole Sunday making delicious food. One of my all times favourite snack is energy balls. The main ingredients provide a heathy balance of fats, proteins and carbs, plus provide a punch of nutrients- exactly what you need to get you through a long day. This recipe is from Niomi Smart book “Eat Smart”. Enjoy!
2 tbsp. coconut oil
90g desiccated coconut
1 tbsp. lemon zest
80g unsalted raw brazil nuts
1 tsp vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
2 tbsp. maple syrup
3 tbsp. lemon juice

It’s that time of year once again when everybody is making conversation asking “So, do you have any Christmas parties this weekend?” it’s like when December hits, you’re automatically enrolled into some kinda’ party schedule.
For this year’s Christmas party I am determined to LOVE my outfit. Last year, I went to my work Christmas party, and I didn’t really like the outfit so even though this may sound silly, not being comfortable in what I am wearing can make the whole party less fun. This time around, I’m determined to love what I’m wearing to tonight’s Christmas party. I know if I’m comfortable and feel good, I will in turn have a much better time.
If you’re considering your Christmas party outfit, why not try making something traditionally formal a little more edgy? This is what I tried to do this year. I found these vinyl trousers about a month ago and I knew it’s going to be my key piece into my Christmas party outfit. So have a look, grab some ideas and enjoy this party season!
