A walk on the beach

One of my favorite things in Los Angeles is that you can go down to the beach anytime you want. I️ think I️ might have said that before, but it’s really true. I’m a hopeless romantic, what can I️ say?

So this time I️ met up with an upcoming photographer/filmmaker Ou Zhang (Instagram: @ouzhangstudio) to do an analog and digital shoot without any other equipment but the camera and the gorgeous sunset. Here’s what we got out of this beautiful late afternoon.

I️ am wearing a Zara dress, DKNY sweater, Chanel foundation and Maybelline matte lipstick.

Tell me about your favorite beach in the comments below.

Out of the woods

One of my first photo shoots in LA was in Pasadena and the photographer had an idea to make it a ‘fairy lost in the woods’ theme. And you know me, I’m all for themes and creative ideas so I was on board immediately. And here’s what happened on that magical day.

I am wearing a skirt from H&M, shirt from Zara and this time no shoes! 🙈 Lipstick is a liquid matte lipstick from MAC. Recommend it if you want a great quality, long-lasting matte lipstick that doesn’t dry your lips. 👄💄

What is your favorite matte lipstick brand?

Another week in LA

So maybe it won’t be a weekly blog as there are so many things happening that I literally didn’t have time to write this. So I’m just gonna some up all the greatness that went on over the last two weeks.

First off I want to talk about Universal CityWalk. There is a whole area of Los Angeles dedicated to films, shocked, right? And this is where you go through to go to Universal Studios which is a theme park. But for people who don’t want to go to the same park, they can just walk around and see all kinds of billboards, stores and everything. So we decided to walk around and we stumbled upon this amazing wall so… Obviously I had to take a picture. 😊


On our walk we stumbled upon a line of people which is very common in the US. I don’t know why but people like to line up for things… which might be weird but when you see it you just want to get in that line to see what’s up! 😂 so with did! And the line was for a drink called Mini Monster. It was advertised as a dessert drink but you could also get flavored lemonade. When you wanted a dessert drink you got the lemonade and on top of it you got a huge cotton candy cloud thing with sprinkles on it. It looked like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I only got the guts to try a simple lemonade though. 🙊 here it is!


Another day we went to see the Whitney movie about her life called can I be me? Went to this small art cinema to watch it and on the way we found a pretty cool street, so obviously, another photo op.


Last time I told you that I am a musician as well and I took time to meet with Bruce, who is a great podcaster from Florida. Now here this entertainment, that’s the name is of podcast, did an interview with me about two years ago and you can listen to it here.


This summer season stripes were so popular that I had to get a dress from ZARA before I left for LA. Not that I didn’t have like a dozen striped shirts already but you know, an addiction is an addiction… 😂 


As you may know I’m not a summer person, so it’s even more fun that I get to be in LA for the worst heat wave in decades. It’s 40°C for those of you who know what that means you know that it’s crazy hot. So that’s one of the reasons why you don’t see my face and my make up because it just melts right off my face so most of the time I don’t even put on any. But there are a few places where you can hide out until the heat wave is gone, and other than air-conditioned malls and your car you can always go to the beach. I guess that’s not too shabby. So you know what comes next! Yes, a photo opportunity by the beach.  😂💦 so we got in the car got ourselves some nice sushi and went straight to Venice Beach to cool off.


And then Sunday night came. Those of you who are music fans know that the Video Music Awards are almost as important as the Grammys and the Brits. So we decided to check out a VMA after party in downtown LA. There were so many cool people from the music and movie scene mingling and networking and giving out business cards. I also got to experience my very first red carpet. I never thought that this was so intimidating. We have like 10/ 15 seconds to look great and pose and smile and make an impression. I tried my best but I have to admit I felt like I’m on another planet. Here’s a side picture of my red carpet moment.

Oh yes, I almost forgot, after we decided that the night was over for us we got hungry and we heard about this place, Pink’s hotdogs which is a very famous hot dog stand in Hollywood. It’s famous for the fact that whenever you go there, there’s always a line… and it’s true! There it was! And I have to admit I’m not a big hot dog person but this chili cheese dog was one of the best things that I ate here! Hats off to Pink’s hotdogs!

Have you seen Forrest Gump? What am I saying, of course you did, everyone saw that movie, it’s iconic! So in the US there’s a place, an actual restaurant called Bubba Gump and they obviously serve many kinds of seafood. And there’s one restaurant at the Santa Monica Pier which we love because of the beautiful view. So on our last day before my love had to go home, we went there and ate some great fish and chips. And you know, Americans know how to entertain and make things exciting, so that’s what they did with Bubba Gump. The whole restaurant is decorated with Forrest Gump memorabilia, quotes from the movie, pictures and there’s even a bench outside of the restaurant. I think it’s so great that when you come to the US you get what you expected or even more. ❤️


I hope you enjoyed this post and I know they are not so much about fashion, but you probably know that most of my outfits are from ZARA anyways. 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ But let me know what you think and how you like this post and if you want to hear more about fashion or whatever you want to read about.

First week in LA

So I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m a singer first and foremost. Fashion and blogging came a little bit later, BUT it became a great part of my life. 🙂 

To make my dreams come true I had to move the the one place where anything can happen…Los Angeles. So on August 9th I started my journey in the City of Angels. And while I’m exploring the city and finding my ways, I thought I’d write about it for you guys who are interested in my life and career and who maybe want to do the same. 

So I got to LA on August 9th at 9:45pm. It was after a 27 hour travel day so we were so exhausted 😩. We went to sleep and started the next day with excitement.

We began with the necessary things and then moved on to more interesting errands like apartment hunting and finding the perfect car. Which we did, a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer in great condition! 

Then found the perfect place in a very hip and safe part of town. And it has a pool and a jacuzzi! I know it’s quiet common here, but it still gets me every time. Might be lame, but I don’t care! Lol

So after all this we started driving around in our cool car and finally started taking some photos around town. Here are the best of the best.


My first choice of destination has to be the ocean when in LA. It gives me a weird feeling of being so little in the world but also feel like I can do anything. I love it! The feel of it, the smell, the sound and the view of course. Not so much can be said about the outfit as this was middle of the heat wave, but I’m wearing denim cut-offs from Zara and yellow shirt from Stradivarius.


So this one day I was checking out my Twitter which, to be hones, I don’t do too often, and saw that Rita Ora was giving out tickets for the Teen Choice Awards, so I thought, why not try to get a pair? So I tweeted her and a few days later came a dm that I got the tickets! What?!?! This can only happen on LA! So obviously we went and had a blast seeing Rita Ora, Chris Pratt, French Montana and many more. Here I’m wearing a top, pants and shoes from Zara (addict Alert‼️😂)


Our second place that we crashed before moving to a permanent place was a luxury apartment complex downtown LA. And yes, it’s as fancy as it sounds. We were here for 10 days and had so much fun. We used the gym, the pool and the jacuzzi quiet often I must say. 😜 Although you cannot see it, I’m wearing my Zara swimsuit. 😂


One of the coolest things in Venice is that artwork. There are so many wall paintings that it’s like being in a museum. This particular picture was taken with the ballon from a painting inspired by the upcoming horror movie “IT” that also has a real life horror house experience in Hollywood that I won’t be visiting… 🙊🙀 Here I’m wearing Dior sunglasses, shirt and shoes from Zara and skirt from Free People.


I think this is the best photo to end the post with. It sums up my feeling right now. I’m happy. Even though it’s hot as hell and another heatwave is coming I still think is was one of the best decisions of my life, our lives. 

The bag is from Zara as well, but you probably saw it in another post before. It is the perfect size for me right now as I tend to carry everything I need and the things I don’t need as well. I know, girls, right…? 🤦🏼‍♀️

I guess that’s it for the first week. I’m already at the end of the second week here and the post will come soon. So follow my blog not to miss any new posts. Leave your comments, questions in the comment section below, I’d love to hear from you.
