This week something magical happened- I decided to delete my personal Facebook account, this time I told myself for real, and you guys it was the best thing!
Managing a blog-along with all its social media platforms- while having a full time job and having a Facebook account was killing me. I have found myself many times procrastinating for at least an hour per day, which is completely unfair to myself as I can invest this amount of time to other activities or even better focus and become better on my studies. 
Thankfully whatsapp and skype are still there to help me communicate with my family and of course via this blog they can see how I spent my days, but seriously today I was wondering why on Earth haven't I done this earlier? 
I feel so much better now, focusing only on the meaningful things, my boyfriend, my friends and most importantly me. 

Do you have a Facebook love-hate relationship?

Love,
Anastasia

Shopping // What Your Valentines’ Day Gifts Convey?


A lovely time of the year is about to begin with the advent of February. Certainly, February is regarded as a month of love bugs and crazy gestures as it is blessed with Valentines’ festivities. You can see radiant devotion and shining adoration all over. There are cheesy activities happening around such as couples holding hands, embracing each other, giving out gifts, and enjoying romantic evenings.
Among all these endeavors, gift-giving is considered a remarkable way of winning your beloved’s heart. Whether you pop out the question or celebrate several years of your union, presenting a gift sets up moment of the day. Whosoever is there at the receiving end, a smile on your sweetheart’s face is just the thing. While some believe in giving a hand-written love note and a homemade chocolate, others express their sentiments with a precious gift that can be treasured forever and a day.
Interestingly, each of these gifts holds a different meaning, saying something special about your relationship. Here are a few thoughtful V-day gifts and their significance
A dozen red roses: Usually, giving roses is a gentleman’s job. If you receive a dozen of red roses from your best friend or new beau, he might be looking forward to advancement in your relationship. Red roses are emblems of beginning a new love relation or expecting a thrust in the already-existing one.


Chocolates: A pack of chocolates sees no limits of age and sex. It can be given by a boy/man to a girl/woman and vice versa. Since chocolates are easy-to-buy, it is a popular gift among teenage crush. ‘Let’s be friends’ is what the giver wants to convey through a box of chocolates, when given on Valentines’ day. Old people can cherish their matured bond by sharing a heart-shaped chocolate.

Perfume or cosmetics: He wants to enter your heart now. It’s been a long time you are seeing each other and he wants you to give it a thumbs-up. A bottle of your favorite perfume is an intimate gift, secretly conveying that your partner would love to smell and know you more. Likewise, if your man presents your desired lipstick, you should understand the intensity of his devotion (he might need a sweet kiss though ;)).
Sparkling diamonds: Much of dating, it’s time to put forth a love proposal through a stunning engagement ring.  If this is the case, enjoy the sparkle of that special bling. Maybe your husband wants to value your presence by giving away an elegant pair of diamond or ruby stud earrings. A gift to be cherished infinitely!
You can find spectacular vintage and contemporary Valentines’ day jewelry gifts at Angara, the leading gemstone e-tailer.
Wait to see what momentous this Valentines’ day brings to you. Share your story of love and details of the most delightful surprise you ever received, from your valentine.

Hi everyone!
The past week in Scotland has been all over the place; from a lovely sunshine during the weekend to two days of cold and snow, leaving me wonder what would be best to wear each morning. Snowy days are very beautiful, so no complaints here!
I love being able to wear a pleated skirt with a knitted jumper and an interesting scarf that adds up to the whole outfit. Red is definitely one of my favourite colours this season, so when I saw this red cardigan and the tartan scarf on Oasap I knew that I had to make them both mine.
I took the day off on Friday so decided to work full time during the weekend. I have so many things to do, write up and organise; the idea and only stresses me!

I hope you are all having a great day and let me know how are things your side.

Love,
Anastasia

My favourite winter staple is definitely a comfortable knitted dress. It keeps me warm during the day and I feel so cozy in it to an extent that my life gets easier (all this Tesco shopping and stair climbing-no problem anymore). I got this from Oasap and I love its pattern and colours. You can also see me wearing it in their site, I think it is really interesting to see all these clothes on real women of different shapes and sizes and not only on fashion models; makes it more realistic, don't you think? I paired it with my Swarovski earrings kindly given to me by my friend Eva, I can never say no to jewelry it just makes everything seem..more!

Hope you all had a lovely Saturday :)
Love,
Anastasia
