Next Stop - Bella Italia!

Hi folks,

I am by far the worst job hunter I have ever come across... instead of working my ass off to earn a proper living I am taking advantage of the situation and travel all over the world to meet with friends :-) I am spending the entire August on Italy's sunny coast with a friend I worked with in my former job!! Oh well, she wants to help me out with work-related things but there will be a lot of fun and sightseeing in the meantime :-)

Beauty Confessions:
There is one urgent question I have to ask you: Is this too much blue even for a gypsy like me?!
Honestly, I think so! This outfit won't be making it into my suitcase - what was I thinking wearing that??

top: Victoria's Secret cami
skirt: Old Navy
shoes: Tamaris (second hand)
clutch: Lucky Brand (gift)
bag: no name (gift)

Girls (& boys if there are any), I have another beauty confession to make: I am not wearing much make-up anymore and I quite like my effortless look even though I miss my coral summer lips and my dark smokey eyes at times... but since I have turned to organic skincare and groceries I am feeling much more comfortable in my own skin. Something has changed, I can't really put my hands on it, yet. It could be multiple reasons: simply me growing up, or the awareness of nourishing the self, or the many nutrients of natural products...

This is how I look on most days now, except my nails are much stronger and longer (took this pic 2 months ago and trimmed the nails prior to guitar lessons):

Do you have any beauty confessions to make? This is the place for sharing them! :)

Lots of love, sunshine, & happiness
ur Sam xx

Summer Vacation Update!

Hello dear readers,

I've managed to LET GO and finally arrived home! There's been so much going on but I am trying to wrap it all up in a few words for you.

I've done the most amazing road trip with my old friend (we were class mates back in the days) in a golden car - it turned out the colour's called "champagne" but it appears very gangster ;) I can't show you a picture of our gold nugget, though, cause no single pic that we've shot does this amazing car justice... (yes, I'm just a little bit of a perfectionist). We discovered the beautiful French countryside and got to know the lovely people of France. We felt so free and in touch with life, it was awesome!! 
When we finished our trip I took the chance to visit my family and I spent some nice quality time with them. Then... I was invited to a music festival by friends I know from my former jobs at radio stations. It reminded me of how much I LOVE MUSIC - great tunes are as essential as breathing to me! After returning home for a couple of days I took off AGAIN to meet a dear friend from the US in Poland. It was so wonderful to reconnect with her - she is such a special human being and we discovered Krakow together with so much joy!

Hope you like the little impressions I prepared for you below :-)

I'm glad to be back to blogging, though :) ha ha! What have you been up to?!

Happy to hear from you,
Sam xx
