I don't smile often in photographs. The reason stems from my elementary school years, when a dental surgeon had to rip out my baby canine tooth, which for same reason never came out. Of course I was left with a hole in its place for a whole year, because the new tooth didn't start to grow right away. That's when I started to cover my smile with my hand. Believe it or not, eight years later I still have to consciously remind myself not to do it. In the mean time I wore braces too, which made sure my new tooth grew properly and also straightened my front teeth. Nowadays I'm satisfied with my teeth and a smile [...]

Every year, when September starts, I can't wait for autumn to arrive. The first colorful leaves signify the first day when I will put on a warm autumn coat and wrap myself in a warm scarf. Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year, and in today's blog I'll tell you why. #1 AUTUMN COLORS Warm autumn colors warm up my heart, and I love them on my face, lips, clothes, shoes and accessories. I am also partial to autumn fashion trends, since nothing beats thick, soft, knitted oversized pullovers, gorgeous jackets and coats and warm, fuzzy, autumn shoes. I think that autumn colors are the ones that make me feel the most comfortable - brown, [...]
I frequently share moments from my life on my Instagram Mystories , and without a doubt you can find my outfits there, too. There is no place that is more convenient than an elevator for this, unless it stops at the third floor and an older lady with a bag and a chihuahua walks in. The only thing I can do in that case is roll my eyes and forget about my minute of fame in front of the mirror, becuase it turns into 10 minutes of conversation about the weather, lipstick, and how come I'm not cold, because when she was my age.... you know how it goes. Today I browsed my older Mystories and decided to pick my [...]
Is it true? This is what I thought about when I had to leave the eastern coast of Istria and teleport myself into my chair and dig into my books. I had my final exam before enrolling into the next semester. All you students probably know the feeling and agree with me on how HORRIBLE the last exams are, when you’re not used to studying anymore, and when your thoughts are still in the salt water and hot sand. A very unpleasant feeling. About a month ago, on a sunday morning, I found myself at the ER with strong stomach pains, which I thought were caused by a case of appendicitis – this is definitely something I have [...]
...starts in the absence of the alarm clock's ringing, when the strongest sunrays break through the blinds and when I, still half asleep, roll to the other side of the bed into the warm embrace of my boyfriend. Of course, I stay like this for the next half hour. Because I have nowhere to be. I wake up sloooowly, very slowly – but only on perfect mornings. When I wake up a bit I always check my phone to see what’s new, and quickly glance over Instagram and Facebook. Then I lazily get up, pet my kitties, and start thinking about breakfast. “What shall I have today? Fresh croissants with marmelade, cottage cheese burek or cereal?”, is what goes [...]
Happy Birthday to me!
"I think your forehead is starting to wrinkle from all the worrying!", my inner voice said as I was looking at myself in the mirror. "And these bags under your eyes... If they get any bigger you'll soon be able to use them in place of a shopping bag!" Okay, that's enough, I answered with teary eyes, searching for my concealer after a week-long migraine. At 21 years old and after two months of overworking I had been avoiding the mirror, but I shouldn't have. I finally thought to myself that this is just too much. Everyone has a weak spot, mine are migraines. Three years ago, when the end-of-highschool exams were closing in my migraines got worse, [...]
On Tuesday Slovenian bloggers and vloggers had a blogger event in Stow Specialty Coffee Shop in the Ljubljana City Museum. A wonderful cafe with a very pleasant atmosphere in which I was now for the second time. An event called #lepotno2017 was organised by two successful bloggers Ajda Sitar and Gabi Nedič. We discussed beauty, Instagram, photo editing techniques and blogging in general. We ate well, had a few drinks and sweets and socialized. We had a chance to see and try some new Afrodita and Avon products and also the new Mäurer & Wirtz Acqua Colonia scents. We received quite a few of the products as gifts too, and I am going to present them to you in later blog [...]
YAAY, It's Halloween! I'm very late with carving and decorating pumpkins this year... but better late than never, right? This year I decided to go simple and sprayed the pumpkins with white and decorated them with cute glitter. You can also simply paint them with a white acrylic color, but I found spraying them simpler. They were done quickly and are super cute! Look at how they turned out. Happy halloween!
Finally I found some time to write a blog post about the Deichmann brunch I was at on Thursday. Every season they prepare a brunch and invite the bloggers and coworkes to present the new shoe and bag collection to them. This time was my first time, since I am a new Deichmann blogger. I was super excited about it and have been thinking for a long time what will I wear, which shoes to pick... I decided to wear my favorite black oxford shoes and this pretty little bag, both from Deichmann. I combined them with a lovely autumn patterned dress and shiny black trousers. Elegant but cute, as my style mostly is. Of course I forgot to take a picture of [...]
Hello my loves! You have probably noticed that I changed my blog name from Zala Zagoričnik (my name and surname) to Zalabell. Since some of you asked me why I decided to change the name, I will explain it to you in this short blog post. 🙂 First and main reason was that I wanted it to be simpler. I have a long surname with special characters which makes it hard to remember, especially for those of you who are not from Slovenia. Secondly, I wanted to still have my name Zala in my new blog name. So I was thinking and searching for A YEAR for the perfect name. I wanted it to have meaning, so here is [...]
