Beautiful Places -> My Bucket List

Todays blog post is all about the Dream Destinations. Don’t you agree that we all should dream about the topic? Eventually take actions into our hands and make dreams into reality? Do your dreams look like they will only stay as dreams, so you almost want to give up dreaming completely?

There are so many beautiful corners of the world I would like to visit, probably many I don’t even know about. And I can say that sometimes those places look so far away, as I would never reach them. But I don’t like to think in that way. It is much better to think that one day you will be there, only looking back at yourself daydreaming and wishing to be at that place you see in front of you right now. Thinking positively will only increase your chances of making your dream destination into a reality! So maybe it is actually better to call it a plan and not a dream?

When you finally reach your dream place, it is important to remember not to rush through the experience, but rather feel every moment with your body and heart. It is important to collect those memories and experiences, as they give you some valuable life lessons you will appreciate today, tomorrow or after a while.

It is actually hard to write a bucket list, since there are so many beautiful and interesting cities, countries and islands I would like to visit. However, there are places I have been wanting to visit for quite some time. So here I chose 10 of those I have been wanting to visit the most.

Portugal 

Nature, beaches, buildings, friendly people, good atmosphere, long nights and sunny days. Who wouldn’t like to visit this country?

Santorini, Greece 

This island really attracts me with the white buildings and different architecture. The vibe of this place looks so different from where I live. Therefore, I think visiting this place would be an unforgettable experience.

Kreta

Another island I would really like to visit, where you find beautiful nature, beaches, culture and can experience ultimate vacation.

Menorca, Fuerteventura, Tenerife…

Since I loved Mallorca so much, I would like to visit the rest of Spanish Islands, to experience the differences and similarities, and feel the ultimate satisfaction once again. I simply cannot choose one of these islands…

California 

From all of the states in the United States of America, I would like to visit California the most. With such a big influence from the Hollywood movies and TV shows I have always wanted to visit this particular part. We have all seen this place in movies, but it would be a whole different feeling to experience the place in reality and make own memories and notes on things.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 

Colourful and never sleeping place with bright colours, wild dances, fiestas and parades, exotic fruits and deep culture. One of my friends lives in Brazil, and I would be more than happy to visit her there!

Paris, France

I haven’t visited Paris yet, where the romance is said to be blooming and my love for macaroons would be experienced by tasting the original ones! I would also really like to visit Disney World while being there.

Sicily, Italy 

I have been in Rome around 4 years ago. The city seemed so full of culture and historic heritage. The next on my wish list from Italy is beautiful Sicily!

Maldives 

I love beach life, and the water in Maldives looks unbelievable. Do I have to say more?

Bali, Indonesia 

The place seems to have such a relaxing vibe. There are many movies and stories about Bali, referring to it as a healing place where you find your harmony and balance.

Now I feel like I completely reached my own dream land. How much would I like to take photos at these beautiful places, make videos and simply enjoy my time with amazing company. I hope one day I will look back at this post, only to discover that all of this bucket list has been fulfilled and I already will have another bucket list of dream destinations  ready to share. ❤

Keep on daydreaming and who knows, maybe one day your dream won’t longer be a dream, but a reality.

Since this is my bucket list and I haven’t visited these beautiful places yet, the pictures are obviously been taken from Google. Thank you Google! 🙂

Friendship

Friendships are very important for life.

Best to have a few, but 100% true.

IMG_9168

Why do some friendships last,

While others fall and crash?

I do believe in soulmates,

In souls that are related, in faith and good vibrations.

I do believe that friends should always equally care for each other,

Truthfully want to be with one another.

Honest conversations,

Dreams and motivations,

Constant inspirations,

Laughter and frustrations.

There is wonderful silence while together,

And you feel comfortable about each other.

And here comes different degrees of friendships

´Cause best friends can mock you

But always will love you.

And in the end, what matters the most

Is how happy you are and happiness you own.

They only want what is best for your soul.

We Love Colourful Weekends + OOTD

Recently, my amazing friend Valda visited me in Oslo for a couple of days and we were lucky enough to experience some sunny days, considering the unexpected weather conditions. And what can be better than spending the day walking slowly around the city centre, talking, laughing, taking pictures, grabbing some ice coffee and in general just enjoying your time? But in order to really feel good about yourself, put a bit of effort to combine an outfit you will feel confident and beautiful in. And here it is, you are ready to take over the streets!

Pastel and bright colours are wonderful choice on sunny days, as they appear fresh, playful and clean. Don’t let the sun over shine you, be someones sunshine and make them smile! 🙂 We chose to make outfits with my two pastel jackets. As my love for ripped jeans is still here, I could not resist to mix those with my jacket. Red purse was my biggest accent and accessory along with my pastel yellow jacket. My friend chose light blue cropped jeans that matched her beautiful light blue blouse and shiny leather shoes was her outfit accent along with the pastel pink jacket.

One Day It is Reality, Another Day Beautiful Memory

FullSizeRender-30

It is easy to get excited,

About something you are waiting for patiently,

About something you have missed or dreamed for a long time.

 

Firstly, the time seems to stand still,

It seems so far away it gets hard to keep you chill.

Then you try to not think of it,

Keep your mind occupied with other things that keep you real.

Here the time takes a serious step forward,

And the day you have waited for

Arrives with a blink.

 

Lastly the joy, takes over it all.

You laugh excitedly through the whole

Experience you have waited for

Hours, days, weeks, months, years…

With second blink you take,

Here it goes,

 

One day it is reality, 

Another day beautiful memory.

Two Choker Tops that I Love

If you have asked me half a year ago, what I think about a fabric choker, I would answer you that I don’t quite get this trend. Why would anyone make a hole in a top, instead of leaving it be as a turtleneck? But then I tried one on, and it grew on me. I absolutely fell in love with it and how it looks on me. I really like the fact that it looks different and the part on your neck has a unique accessory look. The scarfs are one of my favourite accessories, that means I am very used of keeping some fabric on my neck. Therefore a choker top fabric gives me that comfy feeling that I like.

Also amazing makeup by Indre Antana. ❤

How did this choker trend from the 90s became so popular nowadays? For the past year, a lot of trends from the 90s came back, such as overalls, high waisted jeans and jumpers. Trends go around and come around only with new fabrics and details. The choker trend started on the runways in 2016 and then celebrities took it over and this highly influenced people to try it on themselves. This accessory is an easy way to adapt 90s trend to any outfit and that is probably why this trend grew on people so quickly. Nowadays, it is no longer considered as a 90s “cool girl” look. It became a key item and a distinct accessory.

I haven’t tried any choker necklaces just yet, guess I am a bit slow on things. I like to try and “taste” things in my own pace, without rushing or going with the flow. Chokers seem to slowly fade away, since the long necklaces take over their place. However, lately I have been thinking about of getting one shiny choker for summer, to make an outfit more interesting. What do you think about chokers?

Summertime Colours and Smiles

FullSizeRender-23

 

Can you think of a day

You would be content with it all…

Does it include love?

Your passion, peace, activities or a hug?

 

Summertime colours and smiles,

Bring some joy and healthy shine,

To your face and your mind,

To your soul as well, how nice…

Sunshine helps to keep it alive,

Spread the love around,

Because there is no time to hide,

The stage is yours,

Your life is your show.

Live it to the fullest!

Vacation for You

 

What lies in the word – VACATION?

IMG_7769

A huge desire for relaxation,

Or having fun on exploration?

Letting go of your frustration,

Or simply getting to a different location?

Doing wild and cute flirtation,

Or being peaceful with meditation?

Knowing you don’t have to go to work organisation,

Or being at home without any temptation?

 

Vacation or holiday is a time when someone does not go to work or school,

But is free to do what they want.

Looking at words above you will notice a pattern,

Vacation basically means individual preference for being happy.

The time is yours, to travel or relax…

But the most important thing is to enjoy every second of it,

Because quality beats quantity.
