You may say that I'm a little bit late with this post, but if you are a last minute shopper like me, I hope it will be helpful for you or at least will inspire your holiday shopping.
As a H&M addict, this post will be dedicated again about the brand, but today we're not going to talk about clothes.. but about cosmetics instead. This year H&M finally launched their cosmetic line on the Bulgarian market, and what a better chance to try some of their beauty products if not in the pre-christmas sale period.
The first thing on my list was the Blusher - it contains different pink shades, which compliment each other perfectly. And what is more suitable for the holidays than a little shimmer. (It includes also a little mirror underneath and a brush.)
Another thing that I'm addicted to are body butters. So, I couldn't pass the opportunity to try their Vanila Frost Boddy Butter. Don't you think that its name screams Christmas to you or it is just me?
And last, but not least, it's time for some body mists. And as a shopaholic that I am, I couldn't pick just one.. Here are the Pink Raspberry Body Splash, which smells so sweet and the Creme Caramel Body Splash, which contains so much glitter, you would say that you are buying magic in a bottle. (It's so much more sparkling in person than on the photo).
I hope this post gave you some gift ideas.. I think there isn't a girl or a woman who wouldn't appreciate such gift. Also I bought all these items on sale, so they are definitely in the low cost section. Or if you have prepared already all your Christmas gifts, then you could buy something little for yourself too. I mean, it's Christmas, it's not a sin to indulge yourself with something special.
And stay tuned for Part 2 these days.

I have some really good news to share with you today.. Since 1st of December I'm officially done with the University. I took my state exams and even though the graduation will be held in February, I'm officially a Pharmacist now. I'm even looking for jobs..
About today's look - leather pants and biker boots, as I mentioned in the last post, it's quite typical outfit for me. I like to combined them with more elegant or more casual shirts and blouses, which changes the whole look. In this case I'm wearing a plaid shirt, also a must in my autumn/winter wardrobe.
The other required element of the look is my leather backpack. I found it in a thrift shop this summer, and since then I wear it on a daily basis.
What do you think? Is this look your cup of tea or it's a little bit edgy for you?T-shirt - H&M / Shirt - H&M / Leather pants - H&M / Biker boots - Stradivarius / Bracelets - Cropp town, House

Leather pants and biker boots is something you could see me wearing in the winter as much as I'm wearing shorts and Converse sneakers in the summer. And despite the cold, I'm very happy is that time of the year again.
This particular pair of biker boots is a great find.. They are from Stradivarius' last year winter collection and since then I'm looking for a similar ones. I still can't believe that I found them at such low price last month.
Have a great weekend and stay tuned for the whole look in a couple of days.

Going through these last summer pictures, makes me feel kinda bittersweet.. I really am going to miss it a lot!
And not because I have experienced extraordinary things, but because I learned to be myself more than ever and to not be ashamed of who I am. There is no greater joy than being true to your inner self and to understand that the right people will find you and choose to be with you exactly for that reason. So, spread your wings, embrace that little weirdo you are and dive into the wilderness, steered by the compass of your soul.. That is what being free really means.

On our last day in Greece, we booked a boat trip around the Mount Athos a.k.a. "the Holy Mountain", which is home to 20 stavropegial Eastern Orthodox monasteries under the direct jurisdiction of the patriarch of Constantinople. There is a prohibition on entry for women, called avaton (Άβατον) in Greek, to make living in celibacy easier for those who have chosen to do so.
Since I'm from Bulgaria, it was an interesting fact that in the 14th century, Serbian Emperor Dušan the Mighty brought his wife, Helena of Bulgaria, to Mount Athos to protect her from the plague, but she did not touch the ground during her entire visit, as she was carried in the hand carriage all the time.
Visits to the peninsula are possible for laymen (not women), but they need a special permission.
Osiou Grigoriou (Gregory's) monastery,
dedicated to Saint Nicholas.

St. Panteleimon (Pantaleon's) Monastery is a Russian Orthodox monastery.
Simonopetra Monastery , also Monastery of Simonos Petra
The original monastery was called by Simon "New Bethlehem" and is to this day dedicated to the Nativity of Jesus.
Agiou Pavlou (Saint Paul's) monastery,
dedicated to the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.
We took the ferry boat from the port of Ouranoupoli, that's why we saw only the monasteries on the west coast. For those on the east coast, there is another ferry boat from Ierrisos.
Do you remember me saying that there is no sea water like the one in Greece. I hope you believe me know..
If every country is a colour, Greece definitely is turquoise.

As we were staying at Aristoteles Holiday Resort & Spa, which is just outside Ouranoupoli, we couldn't miss the opportunity to visit it and simply act like real tourists. I may be the only one, but I'm not that kind of person, who could lay on the beach all day.. I mean, I'm in Greece, I should do some sightseeing. Also, since visiting Greece was a very big dream of mine, I just wanted to really feel the atmosphere of this country, to learn more about this ancient culture and simply soak all the beauty in, you know?
Since we were about to walk a lot that evening, I opted for a very simple summery look, because I wanted to be comfortable, but at the same time a bit dressy (I mean, don't forget I'm on holiday..). We wandered through the little streets of the village, full of tavernas, cute little shops, flowers, flowers and more flowers.. Of course, I couldn't miss to take a picture of the local pharmacy too (Hello, we have a Pharmacist here..).
Everything was beyond my imagination and even more, especially under the light of the last sun rays.This is definitely one of the most beautiful, romantic and picturesque places I have ever visited. I can't wait to go back..
P.S. Here you can find Part 1 and Part 3.
