Cooking with @videomeals!

One of the things I so much enjoy is cooking. One of my favorite quotes is:

“There is no sincerer love than the love of food.”-George Bernard Shaw

 And it’s true. Food is the body’s fuel, soul’s happiness and a unique pleasure. 

I enjoy all the cooking sites but my favorite url is:

http://videomealsonline.com/en/ You’ve probably heard about it. It’s has become really popular lately and everybody loves it. It has helped me lots. 

Videomeals is an website run by a gorgeous australian guy. It’s about quick, simple and healthy meals. It provides really interesting ideas using easy to purchase everyday ingredients.

Since I’m not good at long and  hard recipes ,what I enjoy so much  about videomeals is that I can give  myself a really easy dish but also  extremely healthy. I’ve learned to combine different foods and bring out delicious tastes.

If you can cook or if you can’t, it doesn’t matter, if you love eating take a look at http://www.videomeals.com and feel like a chef. If you own an instagram account follow @videomeals for more. 🙂

In mood for fashion… Back to school!

As the summer is ending we are all nostalgic and feeling so lazy. The truth is I hope summer lasts longer every year. I never have a enough sun, beach days, partying nights… These memories make me feel even worse 😦 However, there’s still something fun left to do before school days. Back to School Shopping! I haven’t been shopping yet because in Albania school starts on September. But, I’ve been making some research and have been informed of the last trends.

Except the fact that fashion is always changing, I think that a school- like outfit must be, first of all, comfortable and then appropriate. BUT, don’t go for a too conservator look, add something you like and makes you feel yourself (don’t forget the fact that you are a girl, add something femmine to your look). Make it fun! All teens’ favorite brands are having a Sale up to 70% now so that’s a big advantage. You can get all you want for less. www.nastygal.com ; www.forever21.com ; www.gypsywarrior.com; www.asos.com are what I recommend. Below you’ll find some amazing items which will make you look stunning! Enjoy and get inspired! 😉

imff 3T-shirt ASOS// Pants TOPSHOP// Shoes Nastygal// Beanie ASOS// Bag Nasty Gal// Accessories Alimonada

This is a sweet and really eye catching look. The cherry jeans are the subject of the whole outfit. When someone is wearing it, the jeans are the first thing you see. To not confuse our appearance and overreact it’s better to choose a simple and light material white T-shirt as well as black, leather shoes and bag. The pink beanie is probably my favorite thing here. It gives you a childish look 🙂 The jewelries are Alimonada too and make you look really elegant 🙂

imff 6Top ASOS// Skirt ASOS// Shoes ASOS// Bag Forever21// Bracelet Alimonada

I’d call this an autumnish outfil. The cherry color of the skirt is something I’d never say no in fall. The leather material makes it kind of rock but the this image fades and becomes more feminine by the top. The shoes are leather-like material and they look pretty nice. The bag’s color is cream. I’ve chosen something between the color of the shirt and the skirt’s . Alimonada is again the creator of the bracelet. I found this piece pretty nice and it matches quiet well with the rest of the items. 😀

imff 8Jumpsuit ASOS// Shirt ASOS// Converse found at ASOS// Beanie ASOS// Bag ASOS// Necklace ASOS

Now this is what I call teen fashion! That fashion has no rules and in my opinion that’s what the real fashion is about! You can combine different stuff together and make them look gorgeous. Because we give life to what we wear 🙂 That’s what I’ve done here. I’ve copied my favorite items and pasted them on paint to create this amazing combination. This is fun, cheerful, happy look. If that wouldn’t look strange I’d wear these everyday 😛 Definitely my favorite. There are two items here which is a must for every student: CONVERSE and the DENIM JUMPER DRESS! The are just OMFG the best thing to wear everyday of the weak.

imff 9Crop Top ASOS// Jeans ASOS// Flats from SHOE CULT- Nasty Gal// Coat ASOS

A more serious look I’d say, but a really stylish one. This is something I’d wear without giving it a second thought. It’s chic, it’s simple and really school appropriate. Even here, as you can see, I’ve made it look like an outfit someone young would wear. The crop top makes this look to not follow the rules. I didn’t add accessories because I think you can wear it with anything.

imff 1Dress TOPSHOP// Shoes TOPSHOP// Bag Forever21// Scarf ASOS// Jewels Alimonada

This is a paris- style outfit. A really clever choice. It’s light and the attention is grabbed by the shoes and bag. The jewelers are Alimonada as well. I thought that simple, “wear for your pleasure” would be just stunning. We don’t need bold pieces here. They’d make you look like you’re trying to be too grown up.

imff 10Leggings ASOS// Varsity jacket ASOS// Nike Trainers found at ASOS// Bag ASOS// Chain Necklace ASOS

Sportif! In my opinion this is an outfit which tells everyone you are confident! You just grabbed your backpack and trainers, put on your luxurious chain and went out to shine again. The Varsity Jacket is something which you should definitely buy if you don’t own it. The leggings are still a big trend. You can find some gorgeous ones at http://www.forever21.com What else can I say… This is a look you should wear at least once a week. 🙂

immf 5Floral pants ASOS// T-shirt ASOS// Converse found at ASOS// Bag Forever 21// Beanie ASOS// Chain bracelet Alimonada

How I love this! The amazing floral pants combined with simple converse are so nice! The hat and the bag are both the same color which matches some of the colors in the pants. The chain bracelet and the simple white shirt give make it pure and clean.

imff 11Coatigan ASOS// Top ASOS// Skirt ASOS// Shoes Jeffrey Campbell found at Nasty Gal// Jewels at Alimonada

A really strong look, this because of the white & black colours. The J.Campbell shoes are my favorite part of the outfit. They’re definitely worth paying for. The jewels are delicate and simple. Again found at ALIMONADA.

imff 12Blazer at ASOS// T-shirt ASOS// Jeans TOPSHOP// Sandals Nasty Gal- Shoe Cult// Bracelet Alimonada

This blazer will be soon really in. If you own it now you’ll be the first. The sandals are from SHOECULT on nastygal and are my favorite they have. 😀

imff 13Crop Top ASOS//Floral jacket ASOS// Coat ASOS// Jeans ASOS// Leather Boots ASOS// Watch ASOS

And finally, this is what I call a wonderful collage of fall pieces. I decided to end my first post “In Mood for fashion” with this because I wanna show you that this is the trend. This is an outfit which allows you to change something every time you wear it and easily make it look gorgeous on you. The crop top is a 70′ style (which we all know how popular is being lately), and the floral blazer too. The watch is an accessory I’ve not used in the previous collages but let me highlight that: A WATCH SHOULD BE WITH YOU ANYWHERE, ANYTIME! The coat color makes it  really special.

PIECES TO NEVER REFUSE

That’s all 😀

Stay beautiful!

Crazy swim!

Bonjour loves! Sorry for not writing these days. This is a post I should’ve uploaded on Friday but I couldn’t find any Wifi until I came back home. 🙂 

drymadesToday was just perfect! I’d call it the best day of this summer. While me and my parents went to Drymades to spent the day, my friend Frida joined us. Drymades is in my opinion the best summer destination in Albania. It’s about 60 km away from Vlora, where my beach house is.

It was Friday and everybody was heading to the southern part of the country so we travelled about a hour and a half because of the road traffic. The journey to Drymades is a whole pleasure itself. The road takes you through the Llogara mountain. Usually everyone stops there to have a break, enjoy the nature and take lots of photos! And we did too.

On the way…

Chillin’ 😉

When arrived at Drymades we were a bit disappointed because the sea was not quiet at all. There were giant waves! After picking a nice place to stay at the beach ( Amsterdam Summer Club, which is a really fun zone, lots of music, amazing summer cocktails and schiuma party every weekend), me and Frida went swimming.

We stepped into the water and a giant wave just rolled us! And I was laughing hard while trying to breath and escape the other wave! And the other wave… And the other…’cause there were millions of waves before we

decided to take a break (which was about 10 min…Long time, huh?) It was impossible to get us out of the water 😀 We had a crazy swim 🙂

Suddenly, it was raining! And this was the moment when everybody joined us rolling in the waves and screaming! Can you imagine a group of people swimming in the rain and acting like crazy? It was so fun! We all enjoyed it.

Me and my lovely friend 🙂 (on the left Frida) ❤

The lunch at Drymades Inn restaurant was delicious. It immediately turned into my favourite place to eat and I highly recommend it.

The menu is light and healthy, seafood-based, and inspired by local flavors of Mediterranean cuisine. You’ll be surprised of the amazing dishes found here. Absolutely an great experience of taste! 😀  www.drymadesinn.al

CHEERS! 😉

In the meanwhile, the rain became heavier and it was impossible to get outside. So, we grabbed our bags, left and had another short break at Llogara. Now I’m exhausted 😦 but also very happy and pleased.

Summer Shoes!

I am so excited! Today I walk up with my new Sergio Rossi Shoes near me 😛 I am so in love with them and can’t wait to wear them! I’ll show you more pics soon 😉

Shoes are every girl’s love! No matter how full of them our wardrobe is we still want to have more. They improve your look or make it look worse depending on the way you combine them. So, it’s very important to have some essentials. I decided to show you some of my favorite shoes of the season in a list of Shoes Must-Haves. I’ve put in this list many shoes. Not necessarily  every and each of them should be yours. But I couldn’t choose. I LOVE THEM ALL!primark-ankle-strap-heels

Ankle Sandals Heels

They are elegant, chic and you can wear them with almost every item you want. Just make sure to have your flats with you 😉  My favorite ankles can be found here and I recently purchased these which are really comfortable. I decided to get them on black since it is a color which fits everything and my mom got the nude ones. Since we’ve got the same size I can wear them too. 🙂  If you want to buy ankles, then Zara is definitely the best place to find what you’re looking for. If you enter a Zara shop you will ran into really nice designs and also really comfortable shoes.

If you really want to spend money on shoes these are the best you can get.

You can also find some really nice ones at Forever21 on great prices here.

My summer so far :)

I think I need another break from this noisy city. I went to my beach house for like 2 weeks and now that I’m back in Tirana I can’t wait to leave again. I spent all day surfing on tripadvisor or booking.com haha.. See, I get so inspired by the great hotels and amazing views. This helps me plan my vacations too. However, I was thinking of posting here some of my pics during this summer since I haven’t posted any.

This is Agi's tattoo. She's one of my best friends. <3

This is Agi’s tattoo. She’s one of my best friends. ❤

We went to the forest one day. Since it was a really hot day we decided to find some fresh place and organise a BBQ. Great memory!

Words of the heart

I wanna live for the little things.
I wanna live different. I wanna change myself, my lifestyle. Does this ever happen to you too? There are moments during my day, when I just stop and say: Look at that beautiful blue sky. How come that I always ignore that? What about these lovely flowers, what about that or that or that…?
These are moments when I really enjoy life. These are the moments when I’m truly living. Because I’m enjoying the little things.
During the happy moments with your family or friends do you ever stop and say: God I’m so blessed! Thank you!
I do. Quiet often.
It’s true that you only understand the value of these moments when you’re not able to live them, but once in a while stop scrolling, take a look around, love, be loved.
Open your heart and let the sunshine penetrate. Don’t think it twice when it comes to loving! Give love and don’t ever regret. Love heals every pain.
Don’t be afraid to show concern of others. Show people you love how grateful you’re for having them in your life. Fill yourself and the others with happiness.
You know, I like to think of life as a journey which you’ll be able to take only once. During this journey you are given the chance to live it the best way possible. Live it the best way possible!
Just take a walk around the block and get to know your neighbors, go to parties and make new friends, love, eat, pray! Don’t ever ever look back sadly!
Make this journey worth it! And at the end of it you’ll be able to proudly say to everyone who’s gathered around you: I had a wonderful life! I had you!
At my last day of living I don’t wanna be alone, I wanna have people crying for me and telling me they’ll miss me. I wanna die being loved and full of happiness. Please God help me do that! 🙂
