A Common Post, With New Ideas
Before I get into this post, I would like to point out that this type of post has been made many times before on other blogs (I’m aware, actually this partially the reason why I decided to make this post in the first place). This list contains my best ideas as well as those from other bloggers (below the list are some links to these blogs.) I wanted to give this kind of post a new perspective using my experience and I hope this will help other bloggers the way these sorts of posts help me whenever I struggle.The Struggle Of Regular Posts
As a blogger, I have come to realize just how important it is to have some sort of schedule. I like to have some idea of when I make my posts, how many I’m posting each week and on what days I post them. This is really helpful, but this also means you need to think of new posts regularly. Sometimes you simply don’t have ideas or inspiration for a post. This is where my long list of blog post ideas come in.Many of the things on this list, I have tried out myself and the rest I hope to use some day in the future. If you know someone who would benefit from this list, make sure to share it with them!

Some of the ideas for this list came from Poor Little Blogger, Who Is Mocca? and Kotryna Bass.
I have always had problems with packing and one of the most annoying things to pack are jewelry. If you put everything in a small purse or makeup bag you usually end up with a big lump of jewelry making it impossible to take out that one necklace you need. I love organizing, space saving storage and smart ways to pack so I am always looking for the best ideas.
A few years ago I got this idea:
I made myself a jewelry roll up to keep my jewelry in while I’m traveling and although it might need some improvement I love using it and it’s super easy to find what I’m looking for.
I added pockets (one with a zipper), loops with buttons to add bracelets and necklaces, fabric pieces to attach earrings and a stuffed long “pillow” for my rings. It’s actually a fun process to add everything and then you just roll it up, tie the ribbons and add bangles and bracelets to make sure they keep their shape.
If you have any ideas of how to pack smart please share in the comments, I love to try new things. If you liked this post please follow, like and share!
As you may know I have gotten ready for Malta the past couple of weeks and tomorrow is the day we’re leaving. This means that I won’t post here on my blog for a while but if you’re interested you can follow me on Instagram where I’ll post daily (maybe even more than once a day) all about what we’re up to while we’re there. Once I’m back I’ll share my photos, experiences (and new things that I have bought.)
I hope you have an amazing couple of weeks!
Since we’re heading towards Malta in couple of days I decided to pack my travel purse were I have all of the things I need on the plane as well as my tickets and passport. I decided use my cheetah printed bag because it was the perfect size. Based on my experience I have gathered the things I need the most on the plane.
The things that I have in my bag is:
- A book recommended by my book loving sister Julia who lives on Malta. Kate Mosse “The Mistletoe Bride”
- Passport with a passport holder from Aliexpress
- Black cat eye sunglasses
- Pencil case with pencils, erasers and a sharpener
- Cozy warm leopard print socks
- New headphones from Urbanears in Tomato red
- Iphone 6
- Lip balm from Yves Rocher
- Notebook with lined and blank pages (so I’m able to write and draw) from Rituals.
- A gold mirror

What’s the most important thing about your outfit when you’re going shopping? Looking like Carrie Bradshaw is my first response; but in reality walking around in gorgeous stiletto heels is not ideal when you’re out on a shopping spree. I can’t believe I just said that but unfortunately it’s the truth. So what is an ideal shopping outfit?
- You need to feel comfortable so that you’re able to focus on what you’re doing instead of how short your skirt is or how much your sweater itches.
- You’ll need to wear clothes that are easy to take of in case you decide to try things out before buying them; so stretchy and loose clothes are perfect.
- You need to be able to move around; to look closely on the lower shelves or racks you need to bend or squat and if your wearing a mini skirt or dress that’s not exactly an ideal position and tight jeans are impossible squat in if the’re not stretchy enough.
- If your walking around in stores for hours the last thing you want is for your feet to start hurting and I can promise you that they will eventually even if you’re wearing comfortable heels.
- Another important thing with your shoes is that they also need to be easy to take off, it’s not fun having classic sneakers that you need to tie and untie whenever your trying something out.
- You will also need a bag that holds only the things you need, is easy to get in to and is easy to carry around (I would normally go for a cross body bag, so my fur bag isn’t ideal but it’s very light and I can wear it on my arm.)
So with all these things in mind I created this outfit with only comfortable pieces that are easy to move around in. To sum it up the best thing would be to wear a long skirt or dress that you can easily move in (you don’t even need to take it off if you’re trying out jeans or pants) and a pair of ballet flats, slip ons or slip on sneakers.

Have a fun shopping spree!
We celebrated Midsummer last night and I decided to wear my sequin dress for the first time (before I take with me to Malta.) To avoid being to fancy I dressed it down by wearing a white t-shirt underneath the dress (which you can find here by the way) and I paired it with my low slingback pumps from Zara. I also added my silver pearl earrings and then I styled my hair in a messy high ponytail to dress it down even further.
By pairing something fancy like a sequin dress with something relaxed or basic you’re able to balance the two too create a neutralized look which you can either dress down even further or dress up a bit for your desired level of fancy. I dressed my outfit down with a messy hairstyle but then I balanced the look with silver earrings. If I wanted my look to work as everyday wear I would simply swap my earrings for something more basic, let my hair down and wear more casual shoes such as boots, sneakers or flat sandals (flatforms would look amazing as well.)

Have a lovely day!
Like I wrote yesterday; I am still working on my outfits but some of them are almost finished. Today I thought I’d show you some day outfits and I plan to wear these lace up sandals below with all of them (unless I decide to bring another pair.)
The sandals are from Daisy Street although I bought them on Asos and I am so in love with them. I have wanted a pair of sandals like these for a long time and I regret I didn’t buy a pair sooner because so far I haven’t found a single piece they don’t look amazing with.
The first outfit is the one I’m not completely sure about because of the shorts. I do like them but because the’re so tight without stretch it’s horrible to put them back on over a wet bikini and salt covered skin. I ordered a denim skirt from Zara recently so I might bring that instead.
The second outfit is so simple and classic; a white t-shirt, black shorts (and they are super stretchy by the way..) and a belt. My amazing sandals completes the look and I am definitely wearing this.
This third outfit is one of my favorites because the color combination and the relaxed feel. Once again the sandals completes the outfit and if I had to wear one outfit everyday this would be it.
The last outfit I wasn’t so sure about at first but now I love it. I paired my lace shorts with my black bikini from H&M underneath a lace kimono. The sandals look amazing with this look as well and I’m considering to wear the kimono in the evening as well.

Have a lovely day!
Neutrals, layers; you have probably seen me do this before but I can’t help it. I think it looks amazing and combining neutrals is the only way to create a complete monochromatic look during summer (unless you’re wearing a maxi skirt or dress.)
I layered a simple skirt over my slip dress with an extra decorative panel. Finally I layered one of my favorite sweaters over it (second hand) and half tucked it in to the skirt. I paired it with my Vagabond pumps, my mini bag and gold earrings.
Today is yet another shopping day and I know I said that I was ready for Malta on Instagram but if I were to find a denim skirt that would be really great. Oh and a pair of sunglasses is always a fun thing to purchase, and a frapino of course.
