Moving to Scotland

Hey everyone,

so last September I have officially moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to attend the University of Edinburgh. I have been here for about six months now and am in love with the city. Although leaving Croatia to move to the UK sounded scary at first, 6 months into it, I am happier than ever. From exploring the gorgeous city, to the excitement of being a fresher and making new friends, I am so happy I got to experience it.  

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite photographs so far. These include photos taken when walking down the Royal Mile (1), one of my favorite streets in Edinburgh, Princess St (2) - a street known as a shopping destination in Edinburgh and my favorite location - Arthur's seat (3,4,5), a mountain only 20 minutes / 30 minutes away from the city center and a perfect get-away from the reality. 


Hopefully, you like them as much as I do.

Loads of love,

Mia

Hi again

I’ve been interested in fashion and in art as long as I can remember, and although many wouldn’t agree, I find both being similar, if not the same. Fashion impacts us, it makes us feel, it enables us to express ourselves, just as art does.

I created this blog about three years ago when everyone got into fashion blogging and all of a sudden we wanted to become recognised and work in a field we before thought wasn’t possible. I kept it up on and off for about a year and a half, I thought posting outfits of the day and week was what people wanted to see, but in the midst of a crowd I felt lost, not standing out, not being myself, not making a change. So I took a break. Not only a break from fashion, but of writing, which I always found to be a passion. I have recently watched the Future of Fashion series by Alexa Chung on Vogue and it reminded me of what I loved so much about fashion. I was once again filled up with the emotion and ambition I had years ago to try again, even if I couldn’t succeed. Today, I spent thinking about what I would want to share in my blog and I’ve realised there is so much more than a simple outfit of the week. I have realised one of my favourite things is being inspired, and I would love to share those with you. By being a typical 19 year old, browsing through tumblr, I’ve realised there is something so effortless about vintage photographs, clothing, movies, or anything past-inspired.  Looking at the following photos inspires me. And as I am off to watch Scarface, I wanted to say I am glad to be back and hope that this time I’ll stay. Because it’s so much more about being recognised, it’s about sharing my passions with you and hopefully you can share yours with me.

Loads of love,

Mia
