Sunday, 6 December 2009


I've had a really lovely day today as it is Santa's Day in Poland on the 6th of December, although I don't live there anymore I celebrate it every year. On this day you basically receive little presents that you find in the morning either under your pillow or in your shoe;) It's such a sweet holiday and you can really feel the magic of Christmas coming♥ Yesterday I've already put the christmas lights on, as well as a christmas tree, so I can count the days till Christmas time now and put myself in the mood for them;) The photos were also taken today and I really adore the light on them, especially on the first two.
Happy Santa's day♥

Join the Dots + The Sunshine Avenue

Today I'd like to introduce you to a little online shop called The Sunshine Avenue run by lovely Lizzy♥ I have totally fallen in love with almost all of the items in the store! You can even find vintage clothes there which I adore. Lizzy was so kind that she let me choose one of the items from her store I loved the most and she sent it over to me! Thanks so so much dear!
It was a hard choice, but I finally made up my mind and picked this gorgeous black structured dress. It so so versatile and lovely! The other item that I've totally fallen in love with is this lace top with black collar♥ It's just so perfect!

Pure Morning

You can't imagine how I love being woken up by the sunlight coming in through my bedroom window! You just want to get up as early as possible to enjoy the sunny day as fully as possible. I think they're so precious for me because of the fact that there are so few of them here in Scotland, I really miss summers in my home country! Luckily, last Sunday and Monday were really lovely when it comes to weather, so I was in a great mood and spent lots of time outside enjoying the sun. The photos and the outfit are from a Sunday walk with my boyfriend:)

I was always careless as a child

Zips are everywhere now and the zip dress from H&M I'm wearing in this post is probably everywhere as well. That is why I've tried to reinvent it, and wear it a bit differently. I've seen people wearing tops underneath it, which didn't look good, I've also seen people wearing tops over it, and this was quite alright, giving the impression of a zip skirt, which was lovely. I basically wanted to make a zip top of it, and as I've been wearing it with the tutu skirt for quite some time now, I figured out that it's time for it to be photographed:) Immediately after choosing an outfit for usual Sunday photoshoots, I knew exactly what location would suit it and it's actually a building that's in the park situated almost next to my flat. As soon as me and Basia got out to take these, it started to rain, so it was like -oh so now what ...just take a couple of photos quickly and we'll leave...- and it really was a couple of shots because in about two minutes it was raining quite heavily;D Basically, we've returned to the spot in the afternoon when the sun came back, but I think the photos taken when it was grey and rainy turned out better...
And....tomorrow I'm going to the cinema to see Angels and Demons ...I can't wait! Hope I won't be disappointed as it was with Da Vinci Code, because the book was superb.

Poisoned Apple

Last Sunday was the perfect opportunity to go out and take some lovely pictures and as you can see I've taken advantage of it, with lots of help from my friend Basia, who was taking the photographs. I had an idea for this photoshoot, which was basically Snow White, for quite a while, and it seemed kind of easy, because the only prop I needed was an apple. I love how these turned out and how beautiful the meadow with all of those daisies looks. The colours looked perfect and unintentionally kind of matched by outfit, in a way that one complimented the other.
That dress was actually still with the tags when I decided to wear it, although I've bought it last year I think. I've bought it on sale, but after a couple of weeks I started to think that I don't really want it, and I'll sell it...but I couldn't and I'm happy I haven't.

I was thinking about another photo shoot with a fairy tale theme, but still ...I can't really think of anything that would be kind of easy to achieve when it comes to props etc. and would suit me. Have you got any ideas maybe?
I hope the weather tomorrow will be as beautiful as last Sunday, as I want to go out and get some outdoors pictures for the forthcoming posts, as I love the pictures taken in the open air and in the sunny weather..the light is purely amazing then...

P.S. I love Japanese! And it's not as hard to learn as I thought:)

First Love Never Dies

Okay, so I'm now getting seriously bored with staying home and not having a job, and I can really feel that crisis on the job market badly, but I finally have some time to do the things I've never managed to make myself to do because of work! Last week, for example, I've borrowed two language courses and I've started to learn Japanese! I'm so happy about it, cause it's one of those languages I've always wanted to speak and it really is a challenge because it's nothing like the languages I've ever spoke. Speaking about the languages, I think it's one of those things I could occupy myself with all the time. First, I always knew that I'll be studying English, and so it happened, moreover I've ended up in the UK (came here to study social science). Apart from that I've been studying French at school, and Italian and Spanish in my free time and when visiting Italy or Spain, so I know them on the communicative level, although I'd like to study those further... Oh! And I've recently applied for a position of Polish-English, Eng-Pol translator and interpreter and I so want this would be ideal for me! Fingers crossed...
The outfit is the one I've been planning to wear for more than 6 months! I've finally managed, and I think it'll be one of my favourite spring ensembles. Again I've bought that striped top in a charity shop for a pound!:D

Wind Of Gold

Another set of pictures from windy Scotland. Some time ago, more or less the time when I've had those pictures taken, it really started to feel like spring and I was so happy only at the thought of that, of not having to wear all of those layers of clothes and coats and of more opportunities of photos outside. Unfortunately, the bad weather came back.... honestly this is the signature weather of Scotland, which I hate. It's got cold again ... it's grey and it looks as if it's going to rain in a second... and that horrible wind! Actually I'm sure it's going to rain today!
Oh well, I guess that enough of my complaining about the weather!

Coming back to the outfit I'm wearing one of my favourite dresses, which is a kind of a prom dress with loads of tulle layers which is one of my favourite fabrics for skirts and dresses. Also, I've put on all of my faux pearl necklaces for the photos, and I really love the effect of pearl layering...I might start to wear them like that for parties and some special they're too heavy for an everyday wearing.

Oh! Remember that competition for an outfit for a carnival party? One of my outfits got the second place (this one)! I don't even care that it's not the first place, because the prizes for those two places were the same;) Now, the only thing left to do is to wait for my set of cosmetics to come to me...

P.S. In spite of the fact that I hate this horrid wind, I love the effect of the wind on the pictures!
P.P.S. Sorry for such a chaotic post ;)

To ask the Sea for Answers

Last weekend me and 2 of my friends, including Monika the girl who was taking those recent pictures of me, visited a town called St Andrews, which is a lovely seaside place with loads of character. I really loved it from the moment we got off the bus, with all of its old cottages and other buildings it was the cutest town ever. The castle ruins which were directly next to the sea and the beach looked stunning, so did the cathedral ruins which overlooked the sea and were situated on a cliff, and I was just thinking "Why haven't I been here before? It's only like an hour by bus from the city I live in!".
All of these pictures of me were taken on that little beach beside the castle ruins, therefore it was really beautiful environment to work in, although it was a bit of a challenge being in my high heels there and climbing that rock in them;) It was almost empty when she began taking the pictures, but after awhile we've gathered quite an audience, which was quite funny and also a bit distracting, but anyway we've managed to finish it off.

Where angels sing And spread their wings

And here is another set of photographs taken by Monika, who unfortunately is leaving the UK today - she is going back to Poland. Luckily, I've still got some more pictures to show you, because we've spread the photoshoot to a couple of days, but after I use them I'll probably have to go back to the previous photo taking way ... which I'm not really happy about, unless my boyfriend will agree to going to the garden or someplace else with me once a week and taking the photos ... I've asked him today and he told me that he'll think about it ... so fingers crossed:D I really enjoyed the whole experience with posing and having my pictures taken by M. and I think I might actually miss is it, therefore I'm really looking forward to her coming here again.

At last, I could use one of my favourite themes in these pictures, namely, ANGELS. I've been quite obsessed with them for a while now. I think it's mostly the case of liking the image of them.. more than their 'heavenly connections';D. I've started collecting angel figurines when I was a high school student and I still feel like I want to add more and more of them to my collection, so every time I've got an opportunity to buy a new one, I'm obviously doing that ... I hope I will have a chance to show you all of them some day ... as it is impossible just now, because most of them are in my family house in Poland.
