Round edge

How are you doing? I had a tiring but happy day of going around the town and printing works for school. It's an overview week and so much needs to be done still. I distracted myself by cuddling with fiance but I'm just sneaking back to work.

 Shirt: a gift (from Italy) / skirt: thrifted (originally Atmosphere) / shoes: / bag: / choker: Claire's / hat: H&M

Today's outfit contain a lot of circles with metal rings on a shirt, glasses and brim of a hat. The shirt is a gift from my mum and it's exactly what I needed for nu-goth like style. It has a small stripes which I think adds to the texture of outfit. The hat is the most worn accessory right now, as the weather allows.

Wish you a good day/night ✨

Flower crown

Hi guys! Feeling the spring I got inspired and decided to try making my own rose crown. I used a ribbon to make those little fake roses and attached them to a headband with jewellery glue. Since I've never done something like this before, it doesn't look very realistic. Trust me, it just looks good on the photos ;) Anyway it's enough for me and I can't wait to wear it in public.

What do you think?

Portrait with rose

 Inspired by cold, unfriendly light of this day I wanted to take some photos matching the amosphere. Almost seems like evening was there all the time, even if days are becoming significantly longer. Hard to stay awake for me since I do everything but sleep at night. Yesterday I tried to do some sketches and again didn't like it. Abstract theme for one of the school's subjects seems to give me nightmares already. Certainly not my favourite theme to do.

Meanwhile I'm listening to some dark melancholy music as a background for daily activities, or lack of them. I'm especially into dark ambient and neoclassical stuff last time. They have some beauty to them that makes you forget about real world.

How is you day going?~

Braid and a long skirt

The days fly so fast right now. As I got involved in everyday acitivities, the time suddenly dissappeared. I'm trying to work more than in previous semester, especially that I'm pretty excited to learn subjects we've been introduced to last week. I'm also about to give a few presentations which I'm liking less.
Yesterday the weather was so nice, it reminded me of spring coming closer. It's been so warm I had to take off my coat. Now as I'm writing it the heavy sky dissappoints with its sad grayscale, unfortunately. I cannot wait to be able to go skating when it's warm. I also have loose plans about riding a bike often instead of taking a bus. We will see how it goes.

The outfit I'm wearing today is one of my favourites last time. I tend to choose the same accessories everytime since I think some bright purple details suits this kind of looks. The skirt I'm wearing is from  Italy and the necklace is from Claire's. The ring was a gift from my grandma.

I got new shoes last time from I'm happy to finally find platform boots which are not too high. They also have suede lace which is a cool detail, Now that I have quite a collection of clothes, I promise myself not to buy any for some time. In fact, I'm planning to clean my closet a bit and sell a few pieces.

The Last Thursday

I have a last few days of  rest before the university starts. The new schedule is already up on my school profile and it seems I won't have any spare time at all. I hope I can carry on with blogging though.
Today is a holiday called The Fat Thursday in Poland. Traditionally everyone buys, or sometimes prepares, a lot of ,,Pączki", a polish deep-fried pastry similar to donut, and consumes as much as they like. A holiday based on eating - now that's my kind of holiday :) Usually I don't eat pączki as they are super sweet and fat, but once a year I always try some.

 Today's outfit: Tunic: thrifted (originally Only) / boots: Jennifer&Jennifer / bag: thrifted (originally New Look) / bracelet: I am / earrings: Claire's

 Hope you are doing great guys and wish you a good weekend.

I see hearts

I know what are you thinking today, commercial holiday is peeking from every corner with red hearts and cheap chocolate. For me Valentine's didn't go as expected, and I had only a short amount of time with my love. I think we will celebrate properly at the weekend, when work won't be in the way.

I took a classic romantic attire, but I couldn't resist adding a little twist :) this bag is one of two I've been painting last week. Showing some of my interest of anatomy while keeping it romantic is something I like :)
I also wear today H&M dress which I thrifted, Papercats corset and necklace which I got at Alterfair.

 I made mini bath bombs with recipe from here. I also printed a label of my idea to make a jar more fancy. Making you own cosmetics turns out to be so much fun. I think my love liked it :)

In case you need some love today, I give it to you! ❤️️

Art of Horror

Have you ever heard about Zdzisław Beksiński? I have, a lot. I remember already from my childhood he was mentioned to be one of the greatest Polish modern artists. In October I heard about the new exibition about his paitings opened in Cracow. I managed to go there with friends. After waiting over an hour in a queue, we finally get there. Small place. Black walls. What I saw was one of the most amazing things. The works was displayed on glowing screens, making all the colors pop. This way one could see a whole spectrum of artists' skill. In the end I bought the album to take this experience to home :)

If you ever happen to be close to Cracow, go see this exibition. Don't think twice. You'll not be dissappointed.

Anyway, today I went to another exibition dedicated to Beksiński's creations, This time in Warsaw. It was a free session of Virtual Reality when you literally step into his paintings. It was a fascinating thing, it felt a bit like a strange realistic dream.
I present you some of the works in a book, but I assure you it doesn't do the justice to them.

Blueberry dress

I have just woke up as I am writing. Exams left me exhausted and after a few nearly sleepless night I came back to home today and slept for three hours straight! So waking up at evening I feel like a vampire now. I hope the work pays off. Actually, I already got a big chance in front of me and I grasped it as quickly as I can. I will know if I succeed only around late spring and I keep my fingers crossed.

Yesterday's outfit is mostly from thrift finds plus some small local brands. The dress from New look is thrifted and even though it's in bad condition I enjoy wearing it. The belt is thrifted as well, the bracelet is from I am, and the key necklace is from Marufaktura. Boots were bought on

Now I come back to playing Witcher and reading the books as I am in the mild Witcher-obsession mood right now :) I can treat myself a little bit.

In the Seventh Heaven

Hello guys!
The doom time has come, by which I mean the end of semester. Who would have thought one can be so drained to no longer find pleasure even in tracing art from Batman comics and designing an original character. But I don't let sleep deprivation and stress stop me. I also have exciting diy and travel plans for the next month which I hope I can manage to fullfill.

On the photos I have my new lipstick which I worn today for the first time. It's Amethyst from Nyx Liquid Suede. While I already sold my soul for the red lipsticks and there's no turning back, this unusual ultraviolet shade is very magical and I think I will wear this a lot.

 Skirt: Atmosphere / top: thrifted / sweater: G21 / necklace: Claire's

Recently I got a mini-haul in Claire's. Originally I only planned to get the bow and choker, but then being informed they had 3rd item for free, I also found this crystal necklace. I think they are all cute and can't really decide which item is my favourite.

Death and silence. Photography of Laura Makabresku

My first contact with her art was when I saw interview in a magazine. It caught my eye immediately, but then I forgot about it. It was until I saw her on tumblr, and then it got me into deeper interest. I'd like to share with you some of my favourite photos by an amazing photographer (who happens to be from my country). The photos are strange mixture of sensitivity and pain, death and silence. It reminds me of older times, ancient books covered in dust in the attic. There is also relation of human and nature. Animals, especially birds appear here often. Photos are sometimes disturbing and somewhat unpleasant to look, but in the same time absolutely beautiful.

Kamila Kansy, know as Laura Makabresku, born 1987 in Brzesko, is a self-taught photographer currently living in Cracow. She is a graduate in polish philological faculty. Her inspiration comes from her childhood, poetry and dreams. She collaborated with many magazines and took part in collective and individual exibitons.

There are many more to see on her official pages.
