Versatile Blogger Award

✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯

"The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention." (Oscar Wilde)

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

Time goes by so fast, this post should have been put online already last year, but somehow the article ended up as a draft. Although I think, better later than never, so today I added the finishing touches to the post in order to finally publish it.

First of all a big thank you to Brigi from Fashion Lights for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. I am pleased about that. Thanks a lot! :)
You might know that after receiving this award, you need to create a content telling 7 facts about yourself. But before doing this part of the post, I would like to specify the rules, then nominate 4 other bloggers for this award.

Well, the rules are very simple:
- Give a shout out to the blogger who nominated you
- Write 7 facts about yourself
- Nominate your fave bloggers

So, my nominations go to:
- Anya from Reckless Diary
- Len from Fetish Tokyo
- Shannon from The creation of beauty is art
- Chelshea from Chelsheaflo
Congratulations, girls. Keep up the good work.  :)

And now, here are the 7 facts about myself:

1. I've never been a morning person. - It means, you can often find me wide awake late in the night, doing some work or being busy with one of my hobbies.
2. I'm not a big fan of cold weather. - I can tell you that the upcoming, chilly winter with its minus Celsius temperature and short days is definitely not my favourite.
3. I like to travel. - However I'm not the person who has a list, and wants to visit as many countries as humanly possible (- I couldn't even afford it to be honest, but that's not the main reason). I like to experience new countries, living and working there, get to know their culture, so travelling is obviously a part of me, but not the only one.
4. I have a lot of handmade jewellery. - I've always loved handcrafting. Every time I look at a jewellery, I think about the ways, that could allow me to create the same piece at home. That is also a good way to spare some money and to improve personality. It's always a great feeling and it brings a sense of pride in your life too, when someone asks you where you bought that beautiful bracelet for example, and you can proudly answer, "I made it myself".
5. I love dogs. - I think they are the most wonderful creatures in the world, and their love is unconditional.
6. I like stationery. - I wouldn't say, I'm obsessed with it, but I definitely have a soft spot for a lovely notebook.  :)
7. I like to make and eat pancakes. - Both the thin & light and the round & fluffy version. Last year I posted a recipe of Fluffy Pancakes here on the blog, which I still recommend to try out.  :)

These were the 7 facts about me. I hope, you enjoyed them.
To get to know you a little bit more, too, please tell me a fact about yourself in the comment section below.  :)

Have a fabulous week.

Lots of love,

Blouses for any occasion

✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯

"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance." (Coco Chanel)

Blouses belong to the most essential elements of a woman’s wardrobe. They are stylish, romantic, mysterious, just to mention a few of their characteristic. A blouse is a true classic which is suitable for any age and any event. It can be worn not only at the office (or school), it is also perfect for a stroll in the town or for a night out.
There are many different styles and designs. You can find them with or without printing, in a simple version or with sequins and rhinestone details.
Reviewing the offer of some stores, it does not seem too difficult to find a stylish blouse online for women but it can be a little challenging to pick the one that suits you and your personality the most.
To create your own look, it is up to you what you combine the blouse with. Choose classic pants, skinny jeans, a lovely skirt or even shorts, combine them with sneakers or high heeled shoes, you will definitely get an outfit that has a touch of elegance and style.

The blouses below are from Yoins, an online store that was established in 2014. The company offers a free standard flat shipping delivery but only if your order is over $50, otherwise it will cost you $2,99 and you also have the opportunity to choose priority direct shipping. 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Beside the lovely blouses, you can find some nice fashion two piece sets online at Yoins, too.

Which one do you like the most? Do you prefer wearing blouses? Do you think also that they are perfect outside of the office too?
As always, please feel free to leave a comment below.  :)
Lots of love,
