Water water everywhere… green water pools in Water Castle, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Sultan builded this castle for his own pleasure and, of course, his wives to spend time with. Or sneak peak from the balcony from above 😂

Anyways, this is not used as a living part anymore, it became heritage and tourists attraction. Which is amazing, just to see how huge this pleasure area is 😉

When you have what you need. Indonesia stories.

EN: When you have just what you need. I always heard this about asian people- they do not live for things, especially these in villages. Well, I can not say the same about new generation or people who lives in capitals more modern lifes. Indonesian people loves to live like that, they don’t think about moving somewhere else. And why should they- that is the real joy of life, even though they say it is hard to find a job. I have been visiting some of the authentic homes in Yogyakarta, and it was an amazing experience.

Just in time, I was talking about gratitude and how we complicate our lives, I finally get there and my filosophy goes to another level.

This is me and… me after many years! 😂 Such a lovely and welcoming lady.

LT: Vos ėmiau kalbėti apie dėkingumą ir nenorą apsikrauti gyvenimo nereikalingais rūpesčiais ar daiktais- prieš akis iškyla praktinis pavyzdys, apie kurį šneka visi keliaujantys po Azijos šalis. Žmonės čia laimingi, neapsikrovę daiktais ir nereikalingais, buitį sunkinančiais,rakandais. Tačiau jie prasitaria, kad čia gyventi ir rasti darbą labai sunku, o jei ir randi- garbės reikalas netrukdyti uždirbti ir kolegai.

Nuotraukose unikalūs indonezietiški namai ir dekorai- česnakas puikiai tinka papuošti virtuvę, argi ne? 🙂

Ir kai jau manai, kad turi pakankamai, viskas nušluojama aktyvaus ir vis dar veikinačio Merupi ugnikalnio. Žemiau nuotraukos būtent to, kas liko po lavos nuošliauža. Netgi po tokių gamtos stichijų vietiniai grįžta į savo namus nelegaliai- valdžia draudžia čia gyventi dėl galimos grėsmės.

EN: And just when you think you have enough, it is all blown away by vulcano eruption. Merupi vulcano is still active and after last eruption seven years ago, people are not afraid to get back to their homes, even if it is not allowed.

Year of 2016! It has been such a journey.

2016010331445468-1

Starting with my hair colour trip, while I was searching for the best moments of 2016, I found out that I was red coloured hair at the beginning of 2016, which was surprising even for me! I thought it was two years ago, how fast it flow by… My hair had such a challenging year: red, brown, greyish brown, blonde and brown again.. WOW! Thats why I cut them at the end of the year, for the fresh start in 2017.

Travel, travel, travel.. I do not remember the year like this, I was exploring the world, had so much fun, visited so many cities I have never been….It was amazing. Trip to Italy, Rome, walking around those tiny streets, visiting Vatican city- I cannot think about the better start of spring. I always wanted to explore Italy, especially going by trains to Neaples and Salerno, seeing around Amalfi coast, feeling that Italian spirit and heritage.

Paris in summer is completely different than in early spring, even known June was still quite chill and rainy. But traveling with my lovely girlfriends makes everything so fantastic! Thank you, loves for this trip 🙂 Paris trip was all about fashion, style, photography and shopping. Then in the end of summer with my other lovely girlfriends we attended Rihanna’s concert in Warsaw- so much fun, so many great memories!

Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I could still write the whole post about this trip and how wonderful it was.. I realised that some of the trips I don’t even appreciate enough when I am traveling, but when time passes I live those memories again and realise how good this was. Did that ever happened to you? Well, this trip was adventurous and very surprising, I was so excited being there, everything around was just too much to handle, so beautiful, grandeur and sophisticated.. Especially Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque led me to the tears..

South France was the most spontaneous trip I had, it took me less than 10 minutes to decide on this 🙂 And of course I will come back there soon, I saw only few beautiful cities Nice, Cannes and Monaco, but there are plenty of other places to visit. I feel that this trip has changed something in me, I don’t know what exactly, but somehow I felt more free and happy.

For new years I always wanted to celebrate somewhere else than Lithuania, its always miserable here so Cyprus look like a great place. Warmth and sunny days has never went wrong on any occasions, so now I know that even Christmas I would like to spend somewhere else 🙂

Collaborations and blogger events I was attending in 2016 was phenomenal, I have learned so much, met so many great people, got to know other bloggers, had so much fun and so many cocktails 🙂 NYX first store opening, Dior Skyline makeup collection review, Fashion Injection and so much more! I hope 2017 will bring me even more joy and opportunities. I am so thankful and happy to have all this great experiences, support and great friendships. Happy 2017 to all of you!! XOXO

I have spent one day in Cannes, France. Of course, when film festivals doesn’t take time there is not a lot things to do.. unless SHOPPING! 😍 So many great high end stores located in main street, all in Christmas mood, window displays are so cute!

It took me 30 minutes to travel from Nice with train, so it is so worth to go there for shopping. Also there are some great museums, as well, for example Salvador Dali exhibition.

My look of the day for Cannes: H&M pants, stripy shirt and khaki trench coat, Stradivarius sparkly backpack, Dior So Real sunglasses, Dior matte lipstick.

 

Dubai Mall And underwater Aquarium.

Dubai Mall. High fashion brands, fast fashion and souks under one roof. One thing that I noticed in all brands they are gone very arabic style- long tunics, lots of sparkle and embroidery, lots of details and bright colors. And of course everything is more expensive then in Europe.

On the othe hand there are so many great fashion items that you can’t find in Europe. After shopping And Starbucks coffee I went to Underwater aquarium to see over 10 thousands species of water creatures.. This was very exciting as well.

If you really want to feen Dubai experience it is so worth to come for shopping and get at least one item of your dreams… I had never seen all theese items in reality- only magazines and online shops:) It is heaven for my eyes..
