Fill up your blank space on the wall

Have you ever stared at the empty wall of yours and thought that you want to spice things up a little bit? If the answer is yes, then you are reading this for the right reason. Often our walls become abandoned due to the lack of imagination or simply time. Though, it's significant to perceive that it is really up to us how we create an environment around us. Not only surroundings can motivate and reveal what is important to you, but also it can tell a lot about your personality to others. Consider your environment wisely.

Back to the empty walls. As for me, I had a completely blank white wall which looked dull to me. It was time to make changes.

And here we have an online shop Photowall. A place where you can find something to fill that annoying blank wall.What really surprised me is that they have a vast and comprehensive range of canvas and wall murals. It varies from classical art to contemporary art. By the way, if you keep scrolling and nothing catches your eye, it is possible to choose your own photo and it will be printed!

When I was looking through the range it took me a while to decide what I wanted on my wall. Just because my sofa has colorful dots and the main color is purple I thought that I need a purple canva, so these pansies were a perfect match!

I received my canva pretty quickly. What is really fun that the package includes parts and it’s kind of a DIY thing. You have to put the pieces together and in fact, it's super easy (instructions are clear)!

This canva really solved my problem. I recommend all of you doing the same. So don’t hesitate, visit Photowall and decorate your wall!

If you liked my canva print here is the link to it.

Must visit in Austria: Melk Abbey

This monastery is located in the lower Austria, above the town called Melk. It is situated by the Danube river. Its magnificent Baroque architecture is famous worldwide. The building also belongs to UNESCO world cultural heritage.
The monastic community of Melk is over 900 years old and Benedictine monks still walk around. Nowadays there is also a prestigious monastery school which teaches nearly 900 pupils. 
I highly recommend visiting the monastery. Inside you will be introduced to the history of the abbey by special exhibitions. Later you will step in the Marble Hall which contains pilasters coated in red marble and an allegorical painted ceiling by Paul Troger. In the monastery's balcony opens up a splendid view to the Danube river. Then you will be able to enter the gorgeous library which has two floors and its ceiling is also painted by Troger. There are around 80,000 volumes of priceless works.
The high point of the baroque monastery is the church. Following the wishes of the abbot and monastic community, this is intended to make the religious purpose of the entire construction and its orientation towards God clearly visible. It is definitely an astonishing church. 
This place is worth a visit! Hope I convinced you.

St. John's day in Krakow

On June 24th Poland celebrates St. John's day. As you may know or may not know polish people are very religious. That is why these celebrations attract many people. In Krakow, they have a traditional event called Garlands ('Wianki') Midsummer festival. It takes place annually on the bank of Vistula river near the Wawel hill.
During this day women are wearing flower wreaths which later float down the Vistula river. There are also many concerts to go to. Later when it gets dark people gather upon the river bank opposite the Royal Wavel Castle to see the magnificent firework show.
Don't worry if you are staying in Krakow during this period and you only have this one day for sightseeing. It is plenty of time.
Morning is the best time for visiting the famous Wieliczka salt mine. It is definitely a place worth to see. Don't forget to bring warm clothes because you are going to be underground. 
After the tour at the salt mine, I suggest coming back to the city of Krakow and take the rest of the day exploring Wawel's castle, the Old Town and other beautiful corners of this city.
In the evening around 23 p.m. don't miss the firework show!
Krakow is a beautiful city where you can see many different architectural styles as well.
You can wander around the Old Town and discover many magnificent streets with nice architecture. 
Architecture lovers, be sure to visit Krakow!

Finished school. What now?


After my last exam I was so relieved. This meant that I have finally finished school. No more school, no more homework, no more tests. Though, at the same time I was extremely sad to leave school friends. But after that last exam feeling of freedom really hit me. After all intensive studying for exams it was finally over. I think we all had this feeling. That is why we spontaneously organised a mini road trip to the beautiful town Trakai which is within 80 km from us. Trakai has magnificent castle surrounded by lake. There we rented water bikes to explore the area. We had so much fun! Later we decided to visit this place nearby called Uzutrakis palace. We were amazed by this stunning place! If you are visiting Trakai in Lithuania be sure to go there.

Our trip is over. So what now? As for me I know my answer. My goal is to be accepted into medical school. Though, now I'm waiting in suspense because exam results will determine that. I hope for the best but I know that it will be how it shoud be. I know one thing that I will not give up on my dreams.
As for now I'm excited about my new job. I work at the hospital's children emergency department as a helper. I am really grateful to be there because I can learn a lot being in the hospital's environment.
For those who also have finished school this year like me I have an advice. If you know what you want to do in life then go for it! But if you haven't decided for sure and you still have some doubts then don't choose your future career irresponsibly. Take your time to get to know yourself, travel, volunteer, read books,take part in various events. This is how you will find out purpose in life. Don't rush things! Better later than never :)

What To Wear For a Job Interview

sweater~ H&M
slacks~ Koton 
necklace~ Primark
boots~ H&M
There is a saying that we greet by the appearance but lead by the intelligence. That is why it's important to choose appropriate clothes for an interview. 
It's summer time and many youngsters are looking for a summer job. I thought it would be a good idea to talk about looks for a job interview. 
If your work is going to be at the office, during the interview you need to wear smart clothes. I suggest a white or any other plain colour shirt and black slacks. For shoes you can wear what ever you prefer either high heels or flats. As for accessories you can wear simple earrings and of course put a watch on your wrist.
Though, if you're going to an interview of barista, cashier, waiter or other job which is not a white - collar one, you can wear less formal clothes. I advise you to choose black slacks as well and the top can even be a sweater or a blouse. Pick plain colours. For accessories you can wear modest statement necklace and basically anything you like. Choose shoes you are comfortable with. Take inspiration from my photos above. Though, I wasn't going to any interview I thought this outfit is definitely suitable for it. 
Another tip from me is not to put on too much makeup. Just be modest, courteous, dress appropriate and everything will go smoothly!

Father's day Gift Ideas

As you may know, Father's day is coming up! Can't think of the best way to show gratitude to your dad for all he has done for you? I'm here to save the day with a few brilliant ideas. Though, it is not always about the gift, sometimes a nice gesture and few words from your heart can make your father genuinely happy. Even a simple gift can make his heart melt.

Gift ideas and nice gestures:

1. Breakfast
Don't be lazy. Get up early in the morning and make your dad's favourite breakfast meal. If he is not a fussy eater and likes to be surprised then pick a recipe yourself. After your cooking is done you can even bring his special breakfast in bed or simply serve it nicely on the table.
You can find a variety of delicious recipes right here

2. Gym membership 
Your dad is active? He likes working out? Then this is an ideal gift for him. He will definitely enjoy going there. 

3. Slippers
Someone might call it a boring gift but I think that it is a thoughtful present. These things wear off quickly. And who wouldn't like a pair of comfortable new ones?

4. Picture in a frame
Pick a picture of you and your dad and put it in a nice frame. A photo can be from old times and from nowadays. It can be a funny one from your childhood. Choose a picture with pleasant memories then you two will have something to chat about and remember the time which has passed. 

5. Gourmet sweets

If your dad really enjoys eating candies or chocolate buy him something special. Pick up gourmet sweets to try. It can brighten his day for sure!

6. Shaving kit
This gift is one the most handy ones. No doubt that your dad will use it. There is no man who could ever avoid avoid shaving even if he upholds his beard it still needs some grooming. Shaving supplies will always be needed because shaver's blades can blunt and you can run out of shaving cream. Though, you have no experience in buying shaving supplies? No worries. This article has everything you need to know about shaving kits. It should definitely help you to make up your mind and pick a high quality shaver. Read the article called "Best Shaving Kits - Father's day Gift ideas"

Finally, I would suggest that you apologise to your father for all the fights you picked up with him. It is normal to disagree because we all are different individuals with different characters. On this day you need to show that you appreciate and love the man who raised you. After all, he is your hero :) 
Hope it was helpful and you decided how to congratulate your dad. 

Love, S

The Dress

Do you have a dress which stands out from the rest of the dresses you have? The one you want to wear only for special occasions, the one you cherish...

This dress I can describe as the one. It was bought from MATSOUR'I. Designer from Germany makes these gorgeous dresses which you should definitely check out. What can I say, beautiful designs and high quality! All the dresses are chic and elegant looking.

The dress I have is in navy blue color with red and yellow flowery print. What I like is that flowers are a bit bigger but they do not fully cover the whole dress. It is a tea-length type with three-quarter sleeves. The fabric of the dress is thicker than of a simple dress. The main material is cotton. 
I call this dress royal. Not because how the dress looks like but because of the feeling I get wearing it. I feel queen-like. Maybe the model of the dress forces me to straighten my back. Anyway, I like feeling this way. Not an everyday sense.

The question is how long will the dress be special. I believe, that as the time passes this kind of dress will be replaced by other extraordinary dress. Which is not a bad thing because with each dress we create different special memories. There are plenty of ordinary clothes that you can feel happy about how they look on you. Cherish the dress because of its memories not because you look good with it in the mirror. 

Tell me about your special dresses :)

Love, S
