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!

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.

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.

While Christmas Markets are open during the day, they are most beautiful in the evening. The dancing sparkling lights enhance the already festive atmosphere, giving the market a magical feel. This year, Vilnius is hosting two main Christmas markets in the centre of town – at two of the city’s main squares, which can easily be visited in one evening. One of my favourite things about Christmas markets are the food and mulled wine. It appears I’m not the only one judging by the crowds hanging out by the food and wine stalls. However, it can be very expensive, so be prepared and bring some extra cash if you come hungry. Tonight we have visited both of these main markets in Vilnius, so look around and spot the most beautiful Christmas tree in Europe!

Decorating the tree for Christmas is one of my absolute favourite things about this time of year. I have to say, you need to get yourself a REAL Christmas tree, its not the same as having a plastic one. The smell of a tree is one of the main thing that makes your home smell like Christmas instantly. I went with a silver, gold and pink theme as it is my first year when I can decorate my own tree.
For those who are looking for perfect decorations I would strongly recommend Senukai as it is the only place that had everything I needed and I even found a pink velvet ornament which could not be more me!

Christmas nails ideas come in hundreds of beautiful and fun designs and different styles. It is a right time of the year to get everything decorated. At the same time, it is also a big time of the year to show off your personal style and creativity. Since you are going to use your hands a lot while shaking hands, serving food, cutting cakes and decorating the tree, it would be almost unfair not to make them Christmas ready. Even though, I’m not the one who likes everything that sparkles, for this time of year, I decided to choose something different and festive.
If you don’t feel like being creative, try one of these easy winter and Christmas nails designs to add some fun to your nails.

Are you ready for this girls? My ultimate Christmas gift guide for him is live! Grab a cup of tea and make sure you leave me a comment if you think I’ve missed anything out! I’d love to hear what’s on your wishlist or what you’re planning on gifting your family!
Yesterday I made a list of things that I would like to find under the tree and today we have a list of things that my boyfriend would like to get. And what can I say, it looks like it‘s way more expensive than mine (at least some of these things)! However, you don’t have to buy everything, so choose something that would suit your friend’s needs and go go go before the Christmas madness begins 🙂

There’s only more or less one month left until we can decorate our Christmas trees and make our houses look like Winter Wonderland! At least that’s what I’m going to do this year. But for all the Christmas lovers among you who can not wait for THE DAY, this is still waaaay too long, right? I won’t lie, I am already in the mood for Christmassy stuff and for some people it might be annoying. Recently, I started to think about taking on the challenge of blogmas throughout December which would lead up to Christmas. Blogmas focuses on blogging everyday until the 25th of December. I still have not decided yet, but that would be very interesting and a great chance to make lots of Christmas related content.
