It has been a while since I have written a post, basically just because I haven’t been inspired to produce anything creative and I have been pretty busy with personal things like getting married, buying an apartment, becoming pregnant and so on ha ha.
But hey, I thought today let’s write a little post on my wedding that took place last month, as I did indeed manage to make my own wedding dress :). This had been my plan ever since I started taking Dress making classes, however things happened and I kinda gave up on that idea. Plus we set a wedding date very last minute, hence making the dress I had originally designed was not an option.
Also I was going to be getting married on a beach so having a veil is a bit much i would say 😝. This is how it turned out in the end:
My favorite part of the dress is actually the back. I think I did a pretty good job if I say so myself 😂
Basically I had a week to get myself a dress, but could not find anything appropriate in the shops so I actually had to revert to making it myself. Thanks to my sewing machine which is a Brother 3200 it only took me 2 hours to sew together. I had some material that I used from previous clothing that I did not want anymore and I had an idea of the style of dress I was going for.
I actually have to say not as difficult as I thought it would be. Anyone who is interested in Fashion Design can really do it without much experience nor knowledge in the subject. You just need the motivation and inspiration to get started! 😊

I was going to be in Tokyo for a second time, so this time I was going to spend it in my most favourite area of Tokyo: Harajuku!😃 and dressed appropriately 😂
I was fairly busy that day checking out all the cool spots of Harajuku.
As to my outfit, I of course styled it myself. Such a pleasure to style such a crazy cool outfit. All items I already had in my closet, as I have quite a variety of clothing it’s easy to always find something for a particular shoot. Basically combine anything brightly colored ( specially pastel colours), bows, children’s hair clips, fancy tights and any doll-like clothing to achieve this look. Definitely a style I would love to wear more often, if only society was more open to it.
Of course I had to also go to the famous cat cafe, even though it is very touristy and I don’t even like cats. But I mean when in Tokyo … 😻
They definitely do have some nice cats here.
Still to come in my next post some more photos from my second photo-shoot in Tokyo. See you guys soon
You can never go wrong with Bangkok. Party like there is no tomorrow , enjoy the mouth watering food, indulge in cheap everyday massages and Shop until you drop at MBK and Siam square. What’s not to love? Maybe even get a boob job or Botox while you are there. Quality treatments at affordable prices. ( not that I got any 😂 )
Candy floss cocktail at one of Bangkok’s most interesting bars, 20’s inspired atmosphere at Maggie choo’s in Silom.
Then on to some dancing at sing sing theater in my very short illuminous yellow and blue striped dress (which I would only really dare wear in Bangkok) sorry picture is a little blurry,only one I had of my dress.
The evidence of the aftermath
8 dishes between 2 people is slightly overindulgent but when the food is this good..
I suggest to order tom yum soup with shrimp, Thai green curry with chicken, fried pork and mango sticky rice. Thai food = taste explosion in your mouth.
Diet another time. As you can see from this picture I have put on some weight 😢 fat bulging out everywhere 😂😂 But what to do? Just gotta work with it.Enjoying life sometimes means putting on some weight. Soon to come: How to get back in shape while still enjoying life to the max. This post will come when I figure out how to do that exactly 😂
Where I come from we call these Runners but to be a bit universal I will say Sneakers 😂
We are all buying them right now. They are comfortable, classic and go with anything. I bought my Nikes on my last trip to San Francisco as the USA is the best place to buy Nike.
Yes hard to keep clean, but totally worth it. Best buy in a long time.
I will tell you why not! 😂 Because it is HOT as hell. However we did manage to fight through the sweat and exhaustion and get some nice shots.
Black on black. Sophisticated, elegant and free. Mysterious Gypsy meets serene desert.
And now to something more colourful. A more “Jazzy” outfit like we are used to.😂
Now these shoes I love but I can never wear on a “normal” occasion. Invisible stilettos with black ribbons to tie all the way up your legs. I bought them in that vintage shop in Toronto, which I mentioned in a previous post. Devine shop, devine shoes!
Here we are again with my silk scarves from China, so multi-versatile. Absolutely great for Photoshoots 😍
Well that was all for today. Hope you enjoyed and just a shout out to my friend and photographer Gianmarco Giorgi who made this shoot happen
I’m up very early today as I can’t seem to sleep any longer for some reason so why not write a post on paradise and of course what to wear in paradise 😀
Favourite swimwear right now is leopard print bathing suit. Leopard print works well for Brunettes and red heads. Stay away if you are blonde as it can look a bit cheap sometimes. And yes it is ok to wear pattern on pattern. Wherever the mood takes you, you are on vacation and rules don’t apply 😂
I’m all about the bathing suit right now, so done with the bikini. 😎
I mean is this paradise or what? It’s not called paradise island for no reason. Can you take a guess where this paradise island is located?
