I don't know about you, but my mind is turning on the energy saving mode. Despite the million things that still need to be done by the end of this year. It's kind of waiting that new beginning, the fresh start, like an athlete that's looking in the direction of the final point, touching the ground with his fingers, waiting for the final "go!". Determined to make it, to really make it this time.
Ruffles. Burgundy. Off shoulder. Christmas. Cozy. Soft. Feminine. Festive. Holidays. Winter. New beginnings. Smile. Happiness. Hope. Dreams. Plans. Magic... all the ingredients of a little velvet dress - HERE.
Speaking about sunshine... It is also soft December light. It's a yellow beret, it's the smiley face on my ring that reflects the smile on my face. It's the light in my mirror sunglasses, the reflection of what my eyes are seeing. It's a yellow skirt that reminds me of Florence, it's a walk through my neighbourhood. Sunshine is an ordinary Saturday that becomes special because every day deserves to be special. I am the sunshine. You are the sunshine.
Although I love black/neutral clothes like in my previous post, I enjoy wearing happy colors, especially yellow. It's an easy way to put a bit of sunshine in your day, even when the weather does exactly the opposite. It's been proven that colors that surround us, do affect our humor, energy level etc. So why not take the advantage?
I wanted to show you my very own piece of sunshine, this faux leather jacket from Zaful that soaked up all the sunshine it could get. I don't like this jacket, I love it and honestly, I've been wearing it almost every day since I've got it. I like everything about it, the color, the fit, the material and especially how it makes me feel while I'm wearing it. I normally wear S or M size, but I ordered the jacket in L because otherwise it would have been too fitted and cropped for my taste. The jacket is on the sale right now and you can find it HERE.
Comfort and softness of a sweatshirt. Although the root of the word is "sweat", nowadays it hardly has to do anything with the actual sweating. It's not even strictly reserved for "no makeup - I forgot to brush my hair - don't care how I look- nobody can see me - lounging at home" look. Nope. We've seen these babies everywhere. If you're a big fan of sporty-chic outfits like me, sweatshirts can be also a great base for that type of looks. You can find mine HERE. Do you like sweatshirts?
I've always been a fan of healthy and active lifestyle and working out has been beneficial for me in so many different ways. Although I enjoy this "important meeting with myself", let's be honest - moving my body is sometimes the last thing I wanna do. By the time I've realized that there is one simple thing that can make all the difference and that makes me jump from the sofa right way. That would be cute workout clothes. Something that I really like and feel like wearing.
So, yes, I'm talking about my new top from Zumba Wear, the official sports clothing line of Zumba, a very well known workout discipline that mixes dance and aerobic moves accompanied with energetic music. The top has a cute, colorful, happy print and the softest texture that keeps you warm enough now when it's colder, but it feels fresh once your body starts heating. Besides, it's something that can be worn with other type of clothes as well. I've always been a huge fan of Zumba's sportswear and of Zumba concept in general. I just love the positive energy that is spreads and therefore my recommendation in collaboration with Zumba is totally transparent and honest.

Although I enjoy wandering through the streets and corners of Madrid, a visit to this city wouldn't be complete without going to Retiro Park, a place very dear to my heart and the location that played a huge role in my life. Sunny autumn morning only made the visit more magical. Just look at all those colors! You could spend an entire day in this park while discovering numerous paths, all kinds of trees, ponds, gardens, statutes and fountains of these "lungs of Madrid", until you end up at Crystal Palace (Palacio de Cristal), one of my favorite spots in the city. It was made of glass and iron and built in 1887 to exhibit flora and fauna from the Philippines, a former Spanish colony. Impressive, huh?
Goodbye, Madrid! Hope to see you very soon again! :)
