But what if you were too busy or couldn't find a good present? This post is for all the people who are desperately searching for a good Christmas gift in the last minute, here are some ideas that will save you. I promise she'll like her present. :)

#1 Perfume

It's always a good choice to count on big brands and famous fragrances. If you know what brands the person likes or what scents they prefer it'd be easier. If you don't, you can always choose something new or ask the shop assistant for advice.

DIY inspo home decoration

Hello guys! <3 Today I'll tell you about some cute home decor ideas that I've been planning for quite a while (as you probably know from my Instagram haha - @arockchicklife) and I'm very happy to finally show you. Let's start with the fact that I really love inspirational and motivational quotes because they all tell a stories that we can learn a lot from. So everytime I stumble upon a cool new quote I usually save it on my computer or to a Pinterest board but I forget about these precious quotes soon enough and I don't reread them often. I wanted to change that and to make sure I don't forget about the lessons they taught me.

So I came up with the idea that I should try to use them as home decoration. The process included me trying to come up with a cool idea, choosing which fave fave inspo quotes I want to use and then printing them out.

The option that worked best for me after trying out some ideas was to arrange the pictures on one of the doors of my wood closet. The contrast between the pictures and the wood is great and also my closet is kinda in the center of the room so I check the quotes out pretty often and stay inspired all the time.

Then I realized that one idea was not enough for me :D There were so many other things I came up with and I ran out of quotes before I could try them out. So I printed out more pictures and tried more ideas.

Here are 2 of the best ones, hope you like them. :)

 

#1 Cool workspace deco

Your workspace at home is probably the best places for inspo quotes and cute pictures. You spend lots of time there and you really need inspiration when you're working on something. If you have a pinboard or a wall grid you could arrange some pictures together with your notes, to do lists etc. If you don't, just use the wall and glue or hang some beautiful pictures . You will stay inspired and also have a super Instagrammable workspace. ;)

#2 Your own wall deco

I have always been a fan of the idea of art wall pieces where you can create different shapes with photos. It's cute and makes the whole room light up. Plus that you can arrange them any way you want so you have lots of options and can get creative. For example you could pick a color theme and create some shape as I did here or try to create a color effect using photos in different shades of the same color or literally anything else you want.

I've been loving band tees long before it was cool and all over the internet. Now I walk around the street and there are so many teen girls casually wearing Nirvana or Arctic Monkeys tees and it's totally cool for everyone around. But let me tell you it was not that easy to pull off such a look like 10 years ago. After the 80s band craze and everybody rocking band tees all the time it gradually became less and less popular to wear them.

So there I was trying to come up with a cute band tee outfit idea in the 00s. The only people to wear band tees a lot were real metalheads, mostly men and teenboy squads, and it was not really common to see a girl wearing a band tee. Respect to all the few brave girls who proudly started this trend together with me! So yeah, it was a pretty hard task for me to rock a band tee without getting some surprised looks. Who cares tho. It was fun and I was often pairing the outfit with loud rock coming from my earplugs.

But now that it's popular and trendy to wear band tee outfits I gotta say I feel like a queen. AC/DC shirt and a leather skirt? Yes! Stones tee and high heels? Yes please! Every choice is a good choice and the braver the combo the better the outfit.

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

Top: H&M

Lipsticks: Essence

Eyeliners: Essence, L'Oréal

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. ;)
