2014

Kas par gadu. Paspēju aizbraukt vairākos ceļojumos, par ko esmu ļoti pateicīga mammai. Salauzu potīti, kas bija kaut kas ļoti negaidīts un ļoti nelaikā. Bet to sadziedēju un par to liels prieks. Atradu īstos cilvēkus un ieguvu autovadītāja tiesības, kas ir kaut kas ļoti nopietns. Un šajā gadā nopietni veidoju bloga ierakstus, ko var redzēt labajā malā. Varbūt mazāk interesantas fotosesijas, bet vairāk pārdomas un outfit'u ieraksti.
2014. ir bijis labs pret mani, lieku lielas cerības uz 2015., tas būs ļoti nozīmīgs.

Un vēl šogad uztaisījām 5 minūšu fotosesiju ar ziemas atlaidēs iegādātu Zara džemperi. Adījumi pieprasa melnbaltu.

What a year. Managed to go on many vacations, for which I am very grateful to my mom. Broke my ankle, which was something very unexpected and very untimely. But I healed successfully  and I am very happy for that. I found the right people and got my driving license, what is something very important. And this year I was very keen on blogging as you can see on the right side of the blog. Maybe not as much with interesting photo shoots, but more thought posts and outfit entries. 
2014 was very good to me, I look forward to 2015, it will be very important.

Here pictures from today's 5 minute photo shoot with Zara jumper, which was purchased in winter sales. Knittings require black and white.

Cieši | Tight

Nekad nedomāju,ka kādreiz uzvilkšu pieguļošus svārkus. Bet te nu es esmu, meklējot veidus, kā neizskatīties pēc biroja darbinieces. Pašlaik sanāk.
Un pašlaik, brīvlaikā, jāizdara visādi iekavēti darbiņi, kam nebija laika pēcskolas vakaros. Jāķeras klāt lielām lietām lielai nākotnei, jāpilnveidojas. Būs laiks mākslai, angļu valodai, modei, izklaidei un arī šim blogam. Es ceru.
Un to es šeit rakstu, lai būtu motivācija, to patiešām izdarīt!
_____
I never thought that I would ever wear tight fitting skirts. But here I am looking for ways to not look like I am working in an office. I am doing well so far. 
And right now as I am on winter break I have to do all kinds of work that I haven't got time in the evenings after school. I have to do big things for big future, need to evolve. I will have time for art, English, fashion, some entertainment and for this blog. I hope.
And I am writing this here so I would have motivation to actually do it all.

Pelēkums | Greyness

Kaut kā ļoti grūti ar krāsām pēdējā laikā. Varbūt tas laikapstākļu iespaidā, bet drīzāk Tumblr redzamais pelēkums vairāk iedvesmo.
_____
It's been very difficult with colors recently. Maybe it's whether impression on me, but rather it's because of the greyness I see on Tumblr. Grey is the new black.

Novembris | November

Es atļaušos apbalvot novembri par šī gada labāko mēnesi. Tik daudz labu notikumu vienā mēnesī, bija gandrīz par daudz. Paldies!
Un šoreiz, godinot aizgājušo 2014. gada novembri, daži momenti fotogrāfijās no filmiņkameras un telefona. 
_____
I will go ahead and award November as this year's best month. So many good things in one month was almost too much. Thank you!
And this time, in memory of November 2014, few moments in pictures from film camera and my phone.

Vienīgais, ko klausījos novembrī, bija Carnival Youth albums No Clouds Allowed. Pārāk labs, kur gāju tur skanēja galvā. (Paldies, meitenes, par albumu!) Un uz nagiem pagāšmēnes vai nu melns vai pelēks, divas mīļākās krāsas šosezon.

The only thing I listened to on November was Carnival Youth debut album No Clouds Allowed. I couldn't stop listing to it. (Thank you girls for the album!) And on my nails last month was black or grey nail polish, my two favorite colors this season.

Mana metode | My method

Par savu ārējo izskatu ir jābūt pašpārliecinātam. Ir jājūtas savā ādā, nevar izlikties kaut kas, kas neesi. Bet kā lai paplašina robežas, ja nevar nedaudz izlikties un paekspermentēt? Vajag izmēģināt, ko jaunu priekš sevis. Tas jaunais tad būs komfortzonas paplašinājums.
Man bieži liekas, ka nu viss, esmu sevi izsmēlusi, te vairs nekādi komplekti nesanāk. Un tad ir dienas kad es uzvelku džinsus un džemperi, tās ir manas zemākās dienas. Lai nonāktu pie laba outfita, viss sākās ar vienu apģērba gabalu, piemēram, šo uzticamo second-hand džemperi. Dažreiz, ļoti grūtos gadījumos, sanāk mazo modes skati mammai uztaisīt, velkot mugurā visu pēc kārtas un tad ejot līdz spogulim, un vēl mammai atrādīt. Tas vienmēr dod rezultātus!

One need to be confident about your looks. One have to feel good in your own skin, and can't pretend to be someone else. But how can you expend your boundaries without little bit of pretending and experimenting? I need to try something new for myself. That new thing then can be comfort zone's extension. Which is always good.
It often seems to me that I have depleted myself, there's no more outfit combinations I can come up with. And then comes that days, when I wear jeans and a sweater, those are my lowest days. To have good outfit everything starts with choosing one clothing item, for example, this trusty second-hand sweater. Sometimes, in very difficult cases, I do little fashion show for my mom, I put on everything that could make something and then going to the mirror and to show it off to my mom. This always gives results!

Ir forši | That's cool

Grūti tagad apzināties, ka kādreiz būs vēl citādāk. Pēdējo nedēļu notikumi mani ir izsituši no sliedēm un liek vēlvairāk raizēties par nākotni. Tagad esmu pieaugušais ar autovadītāja tiesībām(!). Bet joprojām turos pie domas, ka man vēl 16 un skolas beigšana, un "īstā dzīve" aiz kalniem. Tā sen vairs nav un es mēģinu izbaudīt visu, ko vēl sniedz salīdzinoši bezrūpīgā dzīve.
Tomēr daudz kas mainās. Un tas ir forši. Šeit kaut kas, kas liks padomāt. Nav par ko!
____

It's hard to realize that this won't last and someday everything will be different. The events of the past week had pulled out the rug under my feet and made me worry about the future even more. Now I am adult with a driver's license(!). But I can't let go the thought about me being sixteen,when graduating school and starting "the real life" was far far far away. That is long gone and I now try to enjoy what relatively carefree life offers me. 
However a lot is changing. And that's cool. Here is something that will make you think. You're welcome!


Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.
— Rainer Maria Rilke



The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.
— Steven Furtick

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. — Tim Duncan




Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
— Arthur Ashe 


If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase: That past does not equal the future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; the last sixteen years; or the last fifty years of life, doesn’t mean anything… All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?
— Anthony Robbins



If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
— Wayne Dyer
