Blogger Help: Photography On a Budget

Wednesday, 16 August 2017


In my latest post about blogging, I talked about how blogging is easy because you can start it with zero cash. When it comes to photography what should we do? Especially if you don't have any fancy cameras yet. Should you invest in one?
Of course, if you want to look more professional and you want to blog as your profession I'd say yes. Also at the beginning, it's completely acceptable to use your phone or some simple compact cameras while you're starting out.


Relationships: 6 Signs It's Time To End

Monday, 14 August 2017



Funny thing, me giving relationship advice although my past relationship was completely f*cked up. Not to mention I am single at the moment. However, I think my bad decisions helped to give an honest and experienced advice. To be honest it was an on and off thing and unfortunately, it was the most serious one. I'm struggling to find someone who understands me and I don't want to be with someone I don't like genuinely. So I rather spend my time alone. Well, that relationship lasted for 3 years on and off which drained all my energy and self-confidence but I was blinded by love and I was totally naive. Now I know that I held onto it for too long, I should've let it go a long time ago. Well, and this is how today's post came to life.

Get The Look: GUCCI

Friday, 11 August 2017



When it comes to luxury brands, no question Gucci's the hottest and most popular nowadays. With its quirky and unusual pairings, Gucci's among many celebrities and fashion influencer's favourite. It's no wonder everyone tries to steal the Gucci look. The question is what it takes to get the Gucci looks? What are the basics of getting the Gucci vibe?


Is Today's Feminism Real?!

Tuesday, 8 August 2017


Women's rights. Equality. Could all be a trend nowadays? Did it become too mainstream? Could something like Feminism be mainstream?

This is the post I've been planning to write and hit publish for weeks if not months. Unfortunately, I never got the time to actually start writing about this topic. So what is Feminism?  If you search for Feminism and look up the meaning, this is what our best friend Google says:



The Struggles Of Being New To Blogging

Wednesday, 2 August 2017



Being new is always sucks. Trying to find your way into a new community is hard. However, fortunately, the Blogging Community is one of the kindest ones out there. But still, adapting yourself to a new environment, getting used to things you've never done before.

Being a blogger, being a huge influential well-known blogger from the outside it looks absolutely gorgeous. Enviable. 
So most people think that blogging is a piece of cake. I can do it. I can't count on my two hands how new blogs I see weekly, even daily. And there are so many great ones out there. Most of the time these people start out just because of the above-mentioned disbeliefs. Blogging is easy, it's full of glamour, going to events, getting free stuff. Well, it's not my dear. It's definitely, maybe once you get huge but until...good luck. They might think it's easy to make it in blogging. And again let me help you, it's not. It won't happen overnight. You have to work hard for it.

My Blogging Routine // Posting and Promotion

Tuesday, 1 August 2017


Today I am going to talk about how much effort and brainstorming goes into creating content every week. As I previously mentioned in a post ( read it here), most people think about blogging as a joke. So how much work goes into creating a post?!

Do Fans Care About Their Idol's Private Life Too Much?!

Monday, 24 July 2017


I still remember what it's like to be part of a specific group of fans. However, I was never really a hardcore fan, who constantly follows every move of their idol.
Back in my day (like 10 years ago), it was quite different. We haven't got Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Guess Facebook just started out, but we had Myspace. It was 2000s kids' Facebook back then. Don't get me wrong by all means I consider myself a 90's kid (born in '94). Well, moving on to our topic, it was different back then. A lot. Myspace was the only place where we could interact with artists, nowadays teenagers, fans have so many options it's crazy. We got news from Teen magazines like BRAVO, BRAVO Girl. Today's kids will never know the struggle to wait for some juicy gossip for weeks. It was quite hard to stalk celebrities.

The Dress, Everyone Goes Crazy For

Friday, 21 July 2017



Tea dresses are a bloggers' best friend, right? They can be casual, elegant or modern with the right accessories. When it's boiling hot, no one wants to wear any thick materials and clothes. Just some nice flowy comfortable dresses or playsuits.  And that's when tea dresses come in handy. No wonder every influential fashion blogger opts for this gorgeous yet so simple dress.


Get Autumn Ready - The Shoe Edit

Monday, 17 July 2017


You know the saying, a woman can never have enough shoes. As summer's moving so fast and fall collections are already starting to arrive in shops, it's safe to say it's time to take a look at some of the best shoes we can choose from for our fabulous Autumn looks.

I love every season but Autumn with its beautiful colours and many options is my absolute favourite. In Summer, you don't have many alternatives. It's boiling hot outside, so you either wear a short and top, a dress or some skirts with a shirt. When it comes to fall fashion it's all about layering and creating different silhouettes.


Is There a Place For New Bloggers?!

Wednesday, 12 July 2017

Since I've started blogging more consistently, I kind of live on Twitter. Means, I see every gossip and fight at first hand. This question has been coming back from week to week, so I thought I could write a post about it. Even though I was blogging in 2010, 2012 and in almost every year ever since I consider myself fairly new to the blogosphere. I get offended when big accounts complain about the huge amount of newbies.


Summer Shade Lipsticks

Monday, 10 July 2017


It's summer and we can enjoy the hot, steamy weather and when it comes to summer beauty I tend to reach for more colourful products. In this post, I will show you my favourite lipstick shades.
Of course, there is a huge fan base of nude lip colours these days but don't forget that colours are trendy too.
I tend to reach for products with lighter formulas in hot weather. So in this post, I would like to show you my favourite lipsticks. They are used...a lot, so don't wait for some fancy untouched product photos because I can't give it to you. And don't wait for hella expensive products either because these are all affordable drugstore products.

Why Second-hand and Vintage shops are good for you?

Friday, 7 July 2017



"They can't stand the thought of wearing something that belonged to someone else before."

When it comes to second-hand shopping lot of people feel it's gross. They can't stand the thought of wearing something that belonged to someone else before. I never thought about it that way. I only see the clothes like they're from a simple shop. I love looking for little, hidden treasures for hours. But it's more of a vintage shopping now.

Reasons Why You Should Workout

Thursday, 6 July 2017


They probably named the word 'lazy' after me so I don't really see the point why I am the one who's writing this post right now. I'm still struggling to stick to my workout routine every week..not to mention clean eating. Funny thing is I always imagine myself with a flat stomach and big booty but when it comes to working out I just want to lay in front of the TV with some nachos.
But the question here is, why you should workout?


The Serious Talk: Confidence Issues

Wednesday, 5 July 2017


Everyone know's a girl who's always in the back, alone and doesn't really talk. Well, that was definitely not me but that doesn't mean I was confident or I am. I have my own struggles in life even though loads of people think I don't.

I imagined my life a lot more different when I was younger. I thought at the age of 23 I will have a loving boyfriend, a career in fashion and maybe a house, a flat. I thought I will travel the world but here I am 23 struggling to get a degree in a field I don't want to be in. In a subject, I'm not passionate about and I definitely don't want to work in.

Sometimes I wonder is there a way out?! Will I ever reach my dreams? Will I ever be that person I dreamt of? 

I don't know yet but what is certain in my life that I need a change. I need to grow some balls and be the person I always wanted to be. I let too many people take part in my decisions and that shall end now.

Blogger Help: How I Come Up With Posts To My Blog

Tuesday, 4 July 2017


This post is for blogger's who are currently struggling with writer's block and for those who are totally new and looking for some inspiration. I was there, I know what it feels to be completely lost.

There were days, even weeks when I haven't posted or my posts were just clearly fillers. I made weekend must-haves and Friday favourites, only because I couldn't come up with a single post. I felt useless, I almost gave up blogging again.(like back in 2012 after 6 months) Still, I'm struggling with posting frequently. I wanted to put some new stuff up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday yet every week I fail. This week I'm changing this, I will post every day and you'll have quality content.
Now I have around 90 drafts which are clearly not Friday Favourite type of posts. So how I came up with so many posts? How I ended up having 90 drafts from none? 

1. Twitter Chats


I joined some chats in the past few weeks and planning some more. Chats are always about interesting topics and the questions itself can inspire you. Not to mention the answers, you can easily combine the answers and questions together for a great post. There was a chat about social media I think.  Questions were: How you grow your social media? How often do you post? Which platform do you like the best? Which one's great for your blog?
I mean these questions, one by one can make a great post. You can write some of your tips and tricks about social medias, or you can show your favourite platforms and when you like to post on Instagram for example. You can talk about the importance of using hashtags and how to use them. Maybe you can even gather some of your favourites and share it with your followers/ readers.
Even if you don't want to join the chat, just pay attention. 

2. Bloglovin


Bloglovin is a place not only for promoting your blog posts but it can also help you to make new articles. I follow loads of amazing bloggers and some of them inspire me a lot. If you read an article you definitely have your own opinion about that particular topic or you had some similar things happened to you. You can write a post on that topic or something similar from your own perspective.
It's also an amazing place for brainstorming because from fashion articles to lifestyle, there is everything.

3. Pinterest

Same with Bloglovin. Loads of photos, DIY ideas and if you search for blogging there are tons of great ideas. 

4. Life

Easy right?! Tell your week in Instagram pictures, or write about a particular day if something amazing happened. Just be creative, that's the only trick. I find it really amazing to talk about personal things, I always think about it might help someone who's in the same position as me. That is why I started my Serious Talk Series, which is coming this week with its second episode. 

But life is so colourful and unpredictable that it can give you so many new ideas. From newspapers, TVs and digital media. 

These are my tips for coming up with new posts. I hope it might be helpful for some of you and let me know if it helped a bit. How do you come up with new posts?

Channel Your Inner Jane Birkin: Basket Bags

Monday, 3 July 2017

Untitled #1357


Not a long time ago I promised you a post on Summer Trends, however, I never got time to do it.
First I'm starting with the biggest bag trends of the season.
Time to say goodbye to our huge bags because it's time for mini bags.
They are literally everywhere. I bet you've seen some Gucci ones over Instagram because the IT girls are live for this trend too. However it's a bit pricey, we can easily find some high-street ones. Primark, Zara, Topshop or River Island, they all have their own designs and some of them are great dupes for luxury brands.


5 Things To Do On Super Hot Summer Days

Tuesday, 27 June 2017



Summer. It's been so hot for weeks, that I'm sweating non-stop in places I never thought I could. I know, I know it sounds gross coming from a girl but that's the truth. So this post is a survival kit for all of us who are struggling to stay alive in this weather.
I always considered myself more of a winter type, I was born in February so summer is not my favourite.

Three Stupid Things You Definitely Do In Summer

Wednesday, 21 June 2017



Summer is a season when you can easily do stupid things and you're completely forgiven for it. Am I right?! I hope I am. I mean, I don't want to encourage you to go around naked and blame it on summer and the heavy sunshine. But yeah, we do a lot of stupid things, but there are three things I commit once a year. Wait, I was wrong, not all of them but some of them.


My Ultimate Summer Playlist

Monday, 12 June 2017


When it comes to summer I constantly think about holidays, road trips which need an endless playlist. Everything's better with music. That's a fact, my love.
When it comes to my taste in music I tend to say it's a little bit of everything. A huge mixture of great tunes. It really is, from The Rolling Stones to Lana Del Rey I listen to everything, even Kendrick Lamar. I don't like one genre, I love music, I love art and I love tunes that express something more. I find it amazing when a song has a meaning or stands up for something, but I'm not going to lie, I also have a soft spot for catchy tunes. 
I made this Spotify playlist for those who have the same opinion about music as me. 

Use this playlist to have fun on a road trip, share some special moments while you're on holiday. And most importantly enjoy life.



My Favourite Photo Editing Apps

Saturday, 3 June 2017


Most of my photos are taken with my precious mobile phone so of course, I have my favourite apps. These are all free to download and I can guarantee you that they do wonders with your simple smartphone pictures.


Lovely K-Lips Lipkit Review

Thursday, 1 June 2017


We are still obsessing over Kylie Cosmetics, right?! However it's a bit pricey especially when you have to order overseas.. so I rather buy some dupes than the Kylie lip glosses. That's how I found this amazing drug store dupe, called K Lips which are obviously named after Kylie's version of lip kits. It's by a polish brand called Lovely and I bought it from Rossmann here in Hungary.

The Serious Talk // Why Do We Need To Keep Up?

Wednesday, 31 May 2017


In a world where social media and the internet is so important, can we take a break? Only by turning our phones off? Why we have the urge every morning to check out Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and do the same process in 30 minutes over again?! And not every morning but throughout the day. Why can't we just pay attention to ourselves and our friends? After all, we can't re-live the days. We must make the most of every day. Especially when we don't know if we get to see the next. As things go these days I'm afraid it's really unexpected.


Earcandy For Those Who Love To Make A Statement

Wednesday, 17 May 2017


Keeping your outfit simple and make it pop with accessories is a great way to stand out from the crowd. In this post, I'm showing you some amazing earrings. Me on the other hand, I'm not really an earring lover, but I have a few one. These days I have a thing for loop earrings as they made a huge comeback this season.

Metallic Love: Your Ultimate Guide For The Best Metallic Items

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

It's in for a while now. Many of us love it and of course, there is another side which just completely hates it. To tell the truth I would never refuse a great metallic product. Never. It just adds a little fun to the outfit.
So in this post, I gathered all the products you need this season. And don't forget less is more.


Little White Dress Is The New Black

Wednesday, 26 April 2017

Ditch the black, all you need this season is a little white dress.
Here are the best high-street items you need and how to style them.

The off the shoulder look

Untitled #1343



Having a white dress can be the best way to cope with the overwhelming hot weather at summer. Not only it's easy to style but also a great choice for every occasion and no matter what your style is (except something really dark and goth). Plus it's really easy to find one, because every high street brand has its own product. The above seen dress is from River Island. A store which I absolutely love, they have the biggest trends ready at reasonable prices all the time. I highly recommend their dresses and jackets and also they have an amazing selection of shoes.
So how I styled this lovely off the shoulder dress? Which by the way is still freaking trendy and a must-have for spring summer along with bell sleeves and ruffles. In this look I wanted to smuggle a little festival vibe so I used straw hats and the indispensable coloured-lens glasses (which I mentioned here to be a big hit this year) with some boho bracelets and huge hoop earrings. To make it more street style rather than a festival outfit I matched it with this Gucci beauty everyone craves - by the way me too - but a simple trainer should do the trick too. Not necessary to use fancy luxury brands because if someone looks good it's not because of their expensive products. Okay I get it, the before and after photos of celebrities. but just think about bloggers. Not everyone has luxury products but they look absolutely ravishing.

The good old shirt dress


The shirt dress is a huge trend this season. Especially the striped one, it's everywhere. I paired this frilled Topshop dress with yellow accessories because yellow is also huge. Plus make these cold days shine a little bit. Flatforms, platforms with floral prints are a girl's best friend at summer. I choosed in this set a little bit pricey items, this one is a Gucci shoe but Topshop, Zara definitely have their dupes.
In a previous post I wrote about colored lens glasses at Coachella (read here) and how big hit will it be. So don't be afraid this season is all about colours and textures, prints. We have suffered through the snow, the cold weather now enjoy the warmer seasons and make it stand out with prints and colours.

The cute little pinafore dress


When it comes to dungarees or pinafore dresses I always think back at my childhood. It always reminds of my days spent at the sandpit playing with my mates. How could I forget those carefree days... Anyway, they are still in fashion and they come in white!! Perfect. For a casual, comfortable look I would style it with some striped t-shirts and simple trainers/sneakers, a backpack and a colourful sunglass. For a unique and different look, I would totally style this dress with nice printed mules or some slippers. They are really trendy just think back at the Rihanna x Puma shoes.

In my opinion with these type of dresses you can't go wrong. Another advantage is that you can style them in so many ways, it all depends on the accessories. Don't be afraid to use lots of colours and prints, it's spring/summer after all.

How To Be Confident With Your Style

Tuesday, 25 April 2017


Currently I am sitting on the bus and writing this post on How To Be Confident With Your Style. I came to this decision because I see so many woman who are mature enough but their style is not. Or their style not matches their personality. Other common thing I noticed is a particular group of women who look good but they just don’t have that special something. They have the perfect Instagram worthy body, designer clothes and everything you could wish for but something’s missing. That something is personality for me. They just look all the same to me, I mean where is the uniqueness?!



Friday Favourites // Loafers From TOPSHOP

Friday, 21 April 2017


Since Gucci's released their furry loafers, it's the biggest shoe trend this year. I thought about dedicating this whole post only for Gucci loafers but since they're too pricey I gathered some dupes and stylish products from TOPSHOP's webshop. So these are all in stock and ready to be purchased.
I highly recommend checking out all their shoe line because they have the best items along with Zara, but TOPSHOP is something else. It's a bit more unique. So these are my personal favourites from the site.


Currently On My Playlist // Sign Of The Times

Saturday, 8 April 2017


Many new songs are on my playlist right now but it's the one that I have to show you. 
Well I don't have to introduce Harry Styles to the world. Sure as a solo artist he's new to the industry but we've already heard him in One Direction for years. After the band's split Niall was the first one (truth is actually Zayn was the first but it was way before the band's break) to release a solo track, then Louis followed him and finally we got to hear Styles' ballad. The most anticipated track of the month.


So yesterday morning at 8 am Sign Of The Times were officially released worldwide, followed by a 2 hour long interview with Harry at BBC Radio 1's Breakfast show. The track reached number one in the USA only in 19 minutes beating Adele who needed 50 minutes to reach the first place. Later I read that it was already number 1 in 70 countries across the globe.

Not a surprise, since yesterday I've been listening to this track all day. Again and again and I can't get enough of it. It has a 70's rock ballad vibe, which goes well with Styles' style(that sounds funny) really well. I find it amazing how individually all of them found their paths and how different these are. Now we're only curious about Liam's first solo act. To be honest the bands break was the best thing that could ever happen to them. Sorry Directioners you may want to kill me now but it's the truth. This way we can hear how grown up they are and how amazing taste they have in music, not some made up pop group with catchy songs.

Back to 'SOTT', which is an almost 6 minute long track. 6 minutes of heaven, I say. These day it's quite unusual to release a song as long as this track, but it works really well with this one. Honestly I haven't realized it was that long. When you hear you get overwhelmed by Harry's amazing voice. 
So here it is the song, we've waited so much for.


Nagyon sok új dal van a lejátszási listámon jelenleg, de az egy az, amiről mindenképp szerettem volna beszélni. Amit feltétlen meg kell mutatnom.
Nos, Harry Stylest nem igazán kell bemutatnom senkinek, természetesen szóló előadóként új a szakmában, de a One Direction tagjaként évek óta hallhatjuk a rádiókban. A banda feloszlása( szünete) után Niall volt az első aki saját dalt jelentetett meg(na jó, igazából Zayn, de ő már jóval a feloszlás előtt, mivel kilépett a bandából) őt követte Louis nemrégiben kiadott Just Hold On című Steve Aoki-val közös száma és végre itt a hónap legjobban várt dala, a Sign Of The Times.

Tegnap, reggel 8 órakor (brit idő szerint) a BBC Radio 1 reggeli műsorában mutatták be Harry első dalát, így hivatalosan is megjelent világszerte. Nem is kellett sok, mindössze 19 perc és az amerikai listák élére került, megelőzve ezzel Adele-t akinek ugyanez 50perc alatt sikerült. Később olvastam Twitteren, hogy a dal 70 ország iTunes listáján elérte az első helyezést.

Nem meglepő, hogy tegnap óta állandóan ezt a dalt hallgatom. Újra és újra, nem lehet megunni. 70-es évekbeli hangzást is felismerhetünk a dalban, ami remekül illik Styles stílusához és hangjához is. Úgy gondolom, hogy a legjobb dolog ami történhetett velük az a banda feloszlása volt. Most gondolom a legtöbb One Direction rajongó megölne, de ez az igazság. Mindegyikőjük a saját stílusában alkothat és ezáltal is mi is egy komolyabb, felnőttebb hangzásvilágot kaphatunk.

Térjünk vissza a 'SOTT' c. dalra, ami egy 5 perc és 40 másodperces mű, szóval egy közel 6 perces alkotás. Manapság én azt mondom kissé szokatlan egy ilyen hosszú dalt kiadni, de meglepő módon egyáltalán nem unalmas. Nagyon jól működik ennél a dalnál. Mikor meghalljuk az első pár másodpercet egyből magával ragad Harry csodálatos hangja.
Tehát itt a videó a dalról és hallgassátok.

My Daily Skincare Routin // Miracle For Oily Skin

Monday, 3 April 2017



I had my suffering with my oily skin for years(thank God, not much acne but the feeling of oily skin, which is quite annoying). Years of trying to find something useful. To be honest I was never really satisfied enough until now. 


The Oh-so Lovely Budapest







Last week my friend visited me from Switzerland. Needless to say we grabbed our backpacks and explored the city. However I live here for almost 4 years now, I can't get enough of its beauty. The old buildings, the bridges and the never ending crowd. Sometimes it's overwhelming but other days I just love how different living in a city than in the village.

I would like to show you some great places you must visit while you're at Budapest.

On the photo above you can see a lovely rose shaped ice cream which is quite popular in Budapest.
They have a few shops around the St. Stephen's Basilica. This time we visited Gelarto Bistro. At Gelarto Rosa last time we waited 30 minutes to get our ice creams so that's how popular it is. The lines were so huge. As the weather isn't so warm yet, and especially that day it was quite cloudy no one was there.
You can choose to ask the rose with 2 or 3 flavours. The more colourful the better. My favourite flavour is the salted caramel which is absolutely amazing. It's a complete must-have oh and almost forgot they have oreo one's too. Heaven!

Another great place where you can spend your time is Akvárium Klub at Deak Square. There is a terrace where you can enjoy the sunshine and the amazing homemade lemonades with different flavours. Not to mention at night it's a great place to have party or visit some concerts.

If you're hungry just grab a burger at Jack's Burger near to Gelarto Rosa and just a few minutesfrom Akvárium. Huge portions really especially when you order in menu plus totally affordable. I like this place, visited a few times before. The burger's are delicious and huge and the employees are really nice. You can spot Jack's Burger around a few places in the city just like Gelarto Rosa.

For great walks or just getting away from the traffic a little bit I advise to visit Margaret Island or the City Park. If you'd like to visit the zoo, the City Park is a great choice then. Not far from my flat there is the National Museum which has an amazing garden. Loads of student enjoy the warm weather when they have some free time and it's such an inspiring place to spend your spare hours.

Let me show you some photos we took at the Heroes Square, Fisherman's Bastion and the City Park.
