I slept throughout the entire week. With all the antibiotics I had to drink, I simply couldn't stay awake. But it paid off in the end, because both, my mind and body got the rest they needed and I'm feeling much better. This winter coldness is killing my inspiration, so again, I'm postponing everything I wanted to do just because I don't feel like doing it now.

Anyway, here is another dress I got from Zaful. Absolutely stunning, don't you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section and have a nice day!

Temperature. Coughing. Cold. And a stay in bed all day long. Scratch that, a stay in bed since last week, with a few exceptions that I shouldn't have made. Let's say 2017 didn't start bad for me, however I'm still not holding on to my resolutions, but I guess everything worthwhile takes it's time, so will I and my decisions aka resolutions. I also feel lonely a bit. Maybe I should get a new friend? Note to self: Get yourself a new cactus!

Meliha and I finally got to get together for a cup of coffee. The coffee shop is wonderful, but the sickly me had a hard time getting up and making these shots better or take a bit more photos. But hey, I can always go back. That's the beauty of it. Everything you didn't do well, you can always try again and do it (and I'm not talking about my photos only). 

I also wanted to show you this shirt, but like I said, I was to sick (but you can check the Dresslily site for more photos of it, link to shop, here). As soon as the temperature is a bit warmer, I'll show you better photos of this shirt and many others. Enjoy your Sunday and drink a cup of tea. It won't hurt!

Happy New Year! Let's hope 2017 will bring joy, health and peace to us all. I complained about 2016 throughout the entire year, and when I look back, I must say that personally, to me, it wasn't as harsh as I imagined it to be. True, I have been struggling and I stand behind everything I said in my personal post, but I learned so many new things, met so many people and changed my life drastically. If I stop for a second and think, I am exactly where I want to be now, and that is good. 

Among other things, what I also learned is that:

  • I don't appreciate myself enough; and I need to start working and that, but it's good I realized it
  • I'm surrounded by people who are worth being around. Be, Terez, Meliha & Mario, I'm really thankful I had the opportunity to meet you, be a part of your lives and that I can call myself your friend. There are no words I can use to describe how amazing you are!
  • There is only one Marija. My sister means the world to me. Yes, we argue a lot, and we get angry and say things we don't mean, but we both know we love each other and would do anything for each other, so thank you for existing Chibeah ♥

And something I want to do/change this year. Resolutions, again.

  • MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY (don't settle for being someone's sometime) 
  • THINK BEFORE YOU DECIDE, THEN THINK AGAIN
  • LEARN TO SAY NO, YOU CAN'T MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY
  • STILL, GIVE PEOPLE A CHANCE

And a quote I stumbled upon on Tumblr. I couldn't find the author, but we can always use a bit of inspiration: "Some days it storms, some days it shines. This is how flo(we)rs grow."

The moment I saw this dress, I knew I was spending the New Year's Eve in it. I've already declared my love for Zaful and their dresses. Unfortunately, this dress has been sold out, but you can find a lot of similar ones on the site. Link to shop, here
