Mood boards! Yes, one of my favorite things and something I promised to write a post about. I love mood boards, I create ones pretty often, I always have a monthly one and I love to share them on social media because they are just so cool!

My favorite place for inspiration is ...(drumroll) the Internet! :D, especially Pinterest. It's a very organized and high quality content website and it's really easy to get lost there scrolling through beautiful pictures board after board.

I basically create 3 types of mood boards.

#1 Monthly mood boards: According to the season, upcoming holidays, my mood or what projects I'm currently working on, I choose up to 10 photos that I feel represent the vibe of the month. They mights be photographs, works of art, abstract drawings ot patterns etc. I often also include some fave quotes and song lyrics, album covers and movie/video screencaps.

#2 Themed mood boards: These are actually my fave because I'm one of those people who have lots of hobbies and interest in various areas so I often feel inspired by random different things. That's why I choose a simple theme for my mood board: a color, aesthetic, art or music genre , some fave brands, artist or time period etc. This allows me to combine really different images and make the mood board interesting. And right after I've chosen my theme I go searching for the most expressive images that represent it and I think would look good next to each other.

#3 'Current mood' mood boards: A lovely idea that I'm happy I came up with I think a few years ago. You know how sometimes a new trend comes along and everybody loves it for a few months? Or sometimes you are in a period of loving a definite singer or band and listening to their music on repeat? This is a great chance for creating a 'current mood' mood board including all those things that are exclusive inspiring and exciting for you right now.

How it's done: a.k.a. The practical DIY part

I think it's best to have the photos printed because what our brains love the most and find the most impressive is 'touchable' images. You can just print them and cut each one out so that you can organize them on a wall near your desk/work space. You could also hook them on a string/strings and turn them into decor pieces. Or you can create a photo collage to print and frame. There are many useful apps, programs and websites for that - plus even Word can do the job for you if you're not into working with new software. Cool thing is you can also use this photo collage as a wallpaper for your phone, tablet or computer. Thus you'll be able to bring inspiration everywhere.

She's Metal AF ⚡️

So metallics are a huge thing now. I've personally always loved them so I am happy to have a chance to enjoy them this season.✨ I thought it would be useful to give you some simple yet cool ideas on how to add a touch of metallics to your style without overdoing it ( 'cause let's be honest it's hard to resist 😜) and without spending a fortune. We already saw the metallics rule the runway in the F/W '16 fashion shows by Dior, Prada, Versace, Balmain and many more. Now the craze is in full force and believe me if they all love it, darling you love it too.

#2 The details make the whole picture great. Accessories are often what makes an outfit pop out and they definitely say I AM BOLD louder than anything else.

#3 Since it's getting kinda chilly outside I wanted to add something knitted and this super super soft pullover is just great. Also I love this type of black tops that are equally simple and sassy.

#4 And last but not least my favorite thing ever: eyeshadows! If you have never rocked metallic lids you haven't lived haha seriously try this out you'll get addicted. I added my two to-go ring sets here too because they look so cute with any nail polish color.

Hope my tips and ideas were useful guys and remember: No matter if you choose to add a metallic accessory or a whole piece of clothing to your styling, everything from a phone case to a jacket will sure make you metal AF.
