Wellou-hellou my dear readers! How is this week going for you?

I’ve been having two busy days filled with running around all over Beverly Hills through West Hollywood. Looking for the furniture and home decor which is pretty, practical and that won’t hurt the “piggy bank” too bad requires long nerves and proper amount of scouting. After I finally finish furnishing our new apartment, I feel that I will deserve a “home decor” diploma or something. 😀

I did find some time this morning between checking preschools for my daughter and meeting with a friend for lunch to squeeze in a hair treatment at great Jeffrey & Kara hair saloon on Sunset Strip. If you’re ever in LA or are from LA and looking for a great hair colour and hair cut, check out this hair saloon and ask for Trina for the hair colour and Kyle for the hair cut and blow-dry. They are both amazing at what they do and I can promise you that you won’t be disappointed with the outcome. They are a pricey salon but you get what you pay for, so it’s worth spending couple of bucks more and walk away with the smile on your face.

To spice up this post a little bit, I’ll share short 5 facts about me and also give you a “homework” since I’d like to know what would you like to see in the future on my blog? Which kind of posts you’re the most interested in besides outfit/ daily life posts?

*I’m a girly girl, but when needed I’m a though cookie and even though I look fragile, I’m hard to “crack”. This brought me far in life, esp. in the most stressful situations I have managed to keep my head cool and find a solution to a problem.

*I had my very first boyfriend when I was 13 and I was so in love with him that when he had to leave back home after his summer holiday, I thought that my world will stop and that I will never find anybody again as perfect as he was. Hahaha, yea… Right… Silly me, little did I know how life “works” back then. 😀

*One Summer when I was a teenager, my main thing was to jump off my bedroom window ( wasn’t too high from the ground, but still high enough to make it a challenge for me ) and leave my house like that whenever I went out to the beach, to the store or just to hang out with my friends. Using home/ front doors was SO overrated! 😀

*Ever since I heard Black Sabbath’s – Black Sabbath and Type O Negative’s October Rust albums when I was 13, there was no going back for me, I was a pure rock and metal head inside and outside. Only couple of years ago I have stopped wearing clothes which would “give out” what I listen to when I have my iPod and earplugs on. 

*Almost everything I know in/ about life, I’ve been self-thought, from cooking to photography to whatever else you can think of. I believe that you can learn everything and anything, only if you’re really interested and dedicated. The more you learn, the more you’ll develop as a person and be able to inspire everybody around you.

I’m wearing: Shoes, bag & sunglasses – Chanel, Earrings – Tory Burch, Bracelet – Balenciaga, Jacket – Zara, Dress – &otherstories

    prelijepa haljinica i cipele…divan kontrast ovih pomalo ‘damskih’ komada s kožnom jaknom…lijepo se nadovezalo i na taj tekst…i ja volim rock i metal, mada se po mom oblačenju ne bi dalo naslutiti:)

    Što se postova sviđa, meni se sviđa sve što sam dosadala viđala na tvom blogu…i hrana i fotografije i odjevne kombinacije. Mislim da je najbolje da pustiš svojoj kreativnosti na volju i sigurno će svaki post biti inspirativan:)

    Divan dizajn bloga,baš mi se dopada.L.A ti baš prija, meni je to najlepši grad za život u USA. NY ma koliko je lep, nekad mi se čini da je lep samo na TV-u. One zgrade previsoke svuda, cela ta arhitektura mi je uglavnom smetala. A sa Los Angelesom druga priča,druga atmosfera. Ne zbog klime, nego takav je grad. Oufit je besprekoran. Srećno sa potragom škole 🙂

      Hvala ti puno na svim lijepim rijecima i zeljama! Bila sam u New Yorku a sad evo kad sam “iskusila” LA, mogu ti reci da mi puno vise pase za zivot a i opcenito nego New York. New York je divan za posjetiti, provesti se i sl. ali za zivot ipak bi preporucila LA.
