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 [...]
A few weeks ago my mom and I went to the furniture store and just out of curiosity took a look at the living room section. It was about time we renovated the living room in our house. A simple, yet elegant white living room caught our eye in the store. I was convinced by the ribbed design on the cupboards doors, it perfected the piece and made it look wholesome. Because we have a green sofa at home, I saw that this furniture is perfect for us. Of course we didn't want to miss our chance, so we bought it. 🙂 Before we set it up we had to paint our walls. We used to have light yellow walls and now we went for a bit more [...]
As you probably already saw on my Instagram, I was chosen to be the new Deichmann blogger. Today I met the Deichmann team, so we got to know each other and talk about our collaboration. They were very nice! It is always great to get an opportunity to work and create with cool people. I will write blog posts for them for a year, and you will be able to read all of them on their website, and I will also publish it on mine. I will be writing about lifestyle, fashion and more. Follow me and enjoy, expect the first blog post soon. 🙂 On the photos you can see a few snapshots from today's meeting. ♥
The project I had been talking about for a while finally happened last Friday. The photos were sent to me and I can now share them with you. 🙂 I was invited to the Huawei event as an artist. They wanted me to create an artsy version of their official hashtag #OO for their new phone Huawei P9, live with visitors. The event was located at Zlati grič in the wine cellar. It was beautiful - you can tell from the photos. The hashtag #OO represents their two camera innovation on their new phone P9. One camera takes colour photos and the other black and white. So I got the idea - two canvases and two circles - one in colour and [...]
