Midnight confessions of a secret rockstar ★

Midnight confessions of a secret rockstar, well not so secret anymore  o b v i o u s l y. :D :)

I've been wantin' to do this for a while now. I've been waiting for this moment for so long. I wanted to show you my passion, what's drivin' me, what makes me loose myself and then find myself again. But I never knew what it really was. I still don't know what's driving me but it's still there and it's still driving me. So I'm going where it takes me."

I've been writing songs for over 9 years now. I've been telling stories about life, feelings, inspirations and wonders. And I've been finding more of myself with each song, I've been becoming more open, more me, happier and truer. But I rarely even told that to anyone. I rarely sang my songs to them. But the point was always sharing, it was always expressing yourself and sharing those songs everyone feeling or thinking the same, or very different. So I think it's about time I did it right, not only because I enjoy it and want to do it, but to do it right. So now you know my secret. Nice to meet you, me.

A wise man once said "I don't know where I'm going from here but I promise it won't be boring." - David Bowie.

Easy last minute Halloween costume ideas

Not all Halloween parties call for a super expensive and impressive "I'm a special effects specialist who invested a hundred dollars in my costume" kinda look. Sometimes it's just a home party or a squad hang out and you want to come up with a pretty cool costume idea that is also both easy and cheap. And here comes this post to help you out on your important mission.

Below are 4 simple last minute Halloween costume ideas that you already have in your closet. All you need for a great look is to creatively combine some clothes and add some makeup.

Vampire

A trendy and simple take on the classical favorite would feature any black badass outfit. If you have something even slightly vintage looking that's a win but just a little black dress would also do the job. To finish the look add some makeup - smokey or cat eye, red lipstick, some fake blood and fangs and you're ready to party!

Rings: H&M  Liquid lipstick: Essence  Eyeliner: Maybelline

Rings: H&M

Liquid lipstick: Essence

Eyeliner: Maybelline

Minnie Mouse

I made this cute headband a couple years ago inspired by the ones they sale at Disneyland. It was a fun diy project, I really love how it turned out and I'm happy to wear at any given chance. I paired it with an outfit in red and black but it'd look even better with a polka dot top or dress.

Party at Gatsby's

Seriously everybody's favorite since the 2013 movie. I can't count how many people I've seen dressed in a 20s inspired outfit for Halloween or some themed party. And the fact that this cool look is so easy to pull off and affordable makes things even better. Any lace, sequined or fringe dress or a dress + top combo works and you can get creative with accessories.

Lace dress: Shein  Seqined top: Terranova style

Wednesday Addams

When we talk Halloween and spooky stuff Wednesday is one of the first characters that pop up in my mind. I love this outfit because it's super easy to recreate and at the same time you know everyone will recognize the character in like 2 seconds because it's a cult movie we've all seen many many times. And let me tell you the red nail polish + black lips combo is a dream come true for everyone who loves make up so have fun with it.

Skirt and blouse: H&M  Nail polish: Golden Rose  Lipstcik: Essence  Eyeshadow: Bourjois

Last Sunday Dolce & Gabanna's new collection blessed the runway at #mfw #Milanofashionweek in Milano with royalty vibes, bold prints, metallic elements and overall beauty. Not only did all the outfits look great, but all the details were breathtaking. So I can guarantee you we'll be having a red+gold+queen glam spring and summer of 2018.

Lace, embroidery, sequins and shiny jewelry were the signature characteristic accents of the new collection of the brand. Game card and royalty references were everywhere to be seen - from the runway stage design to the choice of hairstyles and makeup. Dolce & Gabbana rocked the social media game with the #DGQueenOf❤️ hashtag. I watched the whole show live on Instagram and I liked it so much that I seriously couldn't help but rewatch it like twice later haha :)

Here are some of my favorite looks although I can honestly say that all the outfits looked stunning.

ROSE GOLD + BLACK LACE OUTFIT

The hot weather cannot stop me from rockin' a cool outfit. I found out that a loose top is the perfect desicion for summer days, then I combined it with a black lace bralette for a trendier and chic look. It is an H&M crushed velvet strappy top in rose gold, yes! the colour that is all over the place this summer. I really love it and I actually bought so many rose gold things lately that I'm not sure if I'll even have the time to style and wear them all :D.

Top: H&M  Black Lace Bralette: ASOS  Lipsticks: Essence  Eyeliners: Essence, L'Oréal  Rings: H&M, Forever 21  Notebook: Moleskine

Soo let's take a closer look at this little arrangement. I added some jewelry because I simply can't go out without jewelry, it kinda has this magical power to make every look ten times better. I also made sure to show you the color of the top up close so I snaped a photo of the fabric.

Now let's get to the second part. Here you can see some of my fave makeup products right now and the rings I'm wearing basically on a daily basis. So I'm using eyeliners a lot and after years of trying out different products I realized that my favorite are liquid eyeliner pens. They are so easy to use and the aplication takes only a minute, plus that the coverage is great. I hate it so much when you apply your eyeliner and it turns out looking grayish and the coverage is not good, so annoying! But I managed to find products that are really good. I am using two eyeliners depending on what look I aim for and I have an Essence Super Fine Eyeliner Pen for precise thin lines and a L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Blackbuster Eye Liner for a thick bold cateye.

I couldn't pick which out of those lipsticks to wear because they're all in very similar shades so they're all here. :D These are Essence lipsticks btw, all in nude colours because I'm loving nudes this summer. And right next to them are some of my fave rings that I got from H&M and Forever 21. They're honestly so cute I that can't stop wearing them and they're different size so I can even stack them up.

Another thing I really wanted to show you is my moleskine because it's with me practically all the time so it's actually part of all my outfits :D. I am a singer and songwriter and make sure to always have somewhere to write down notes and ideas. So this buddy is my best friend and it's full of rockin' lyrics you'll soon hear because I'm already working on my debut album. So stay tuned. ;)

MY FAVE LOOKS FROM THE VS FASHION SHOW '16 ⚡️

e59fb7ef-7b07-450b-ba3f-7e0cfbe72a36-2.jpg

You loved the Victoria's Secret show this year? Oh, yes you did. And you'd basically sell your soul to get that bra you fell in love with? Don't be ashamed, we are all weak, we are only humans (just like Annie once said in Parent Trap). The show is such big news each year and let's be honest the Fantasy bra is always soooooo beautiful. There are always some looks I totally love and also some looks I'm not really feeling. But I just seem to love one exact thing the most - the black wings. If there is a look rockin' the black wing thing well then it's definitely my fave. They are just so cool and badass. Maleficent vibes, oh yeah!However, this year one of my fave looks happened to be a white fairy one. It's just so delicate I definitely had to include it here too. Въпреки това тази година сред любимите ми се промъкна и една изцяло бяла визия, но е толкова нежна и приказна, че не се сдържах и искам да ви покажа и нея.

So here are my fave looks from this year's show, you can check them out below. How about you? I'd love to know what your fave looks from the 2016 VS show are? Let me know in the comments below. :)
