Do what scares you

Long kimono/dress:Yoyomelody, Crop top & Boots:Monki, Denim:Cubus

Hi guys! Omg, when is this week going to end. Don't get me wrong, I've been loving this week so far. But this is the second time I come home and I'm completely paralyze of exhaustion. I always thinking that Im going to come home and do a bunch of things, like exercise and get other things ready, but guess not. Today was a really rewarding day.Its nice to know that you are getting better att something that you used to suck at. I was at a high school today talking about my job (at the YMCA) and recruiting new people to our actives. I used to suck at holding presentation mostly because talking in front crowds is not my forte ( I still think I suck at it) . Talking infront of huge audience scares the hell out of me. So it just feels so good to know that Im getting better in that department. When It comes to speaking in front of an audience the only cure is practice. When I was done I felt so accomplished with my self. It was an amazing feeling. 

But hey, what do you think about my floral kimono? It was actually a long dress that I decided to make into a kimono, because I felt like it looked better this way. This was actually send to me together with some other things from a store called Yoyomelody. I wish they had more stuff, I feel they need to expand their variety, but the quality of the clothes is alright for the price. And their shipping is pretty fast as well. So Im pretty much feel that I was introduced to this online store.

Balloons, is all I need!


So shine bright, tonight you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

I was going to do a post about cutting this old dress and making into a short cropped and long skirt. But once I put it on and did my hair and started taking the pictures, I changed my mind immediately.I had so much fun doing this and when I added the balloons I felt right away that it was going to be a great day.  I had these balloons since my birthday and I cannot get enough of them. I hope they never deflate. I got home so late but so content with my day. I hope today is just as rewarding at it was yesterday. And Im really hoping and imagining all this, but I really think I'm being haunted... I have to hurry now, but I will tell you more about this on my next post.

Coco made me do it


Oh I hope that you have been enjoying more regular updates from my part. I know I shouldn't say anything because I might jinx it.  But I m just so happy that I have been able to update the blog this often. Hopefully, I can do the same the upcoming days... And maybe for the rest of the year...Im also happy that things are going pretty good at my job. The only thing I need to improve is my energy level. Im thinking about buying some vitamin D or magnesium to boost my energy level. Its getting ridiculous, I feel like Im a walking sleeping pill. So do you guys have any tips to boots your energy levels. Whats is more effective magnesium or vitamin D?

Birkenstock: Are they here to stay

I was one of those bloggers that didn't jump on the birkenstock bandwagon. I love them on others, but for me, hmm who knows. Im very short and I don't fall for flats very easily. I keep thinking that a white pair of Birkenstock would look so stunning on my feet and they would gorgeous against my skin... and I love how chic they look and I actually love the whole style behind it. For me they are the definition of casual summer holiday chic! But are they here to stay. I've been seeing flats/ birkenstock inspired sandals every where and I wonder will they be back or be still as hot next summer.If they are, I might end up getting a pair of of whites... While the fashion gods decide on that. Lets enjoy some  Birkenstock a la tumblr inspo =)

Knee ripped jeans


 I'm aware that this is not a new trend... But I literally couldn't stop thinking about it. I went on tumblr and I found a ton of inspiration. I found my scissors and I found a pair of dark denims that I don't use. And later this is what happened ...

Way out west OOTD - street style


Hey there! So this is what I was wearing during the  music festival this weekend.  My friend Mónica helped me with these pictures, and they turned out awesome. When I was choosing what I was going to wear the only think I was thinking in my head was: Amanda, think Coachella, think Coachella, be Coachealla. Well, I think I manage to capture at least a little vibe of the well known Coachella bohemian style. I think I had 4 different choices and Im glad I went with this one because, I really didn't want to wear all black, I like originally thought that I would. What do you think about this look? Do you think I manage to capture the spirit of Coachella?
