Hi peeps! I visited my mum in Fredrikstad, Norway during the weekend and was welcomed with a lot of surprises. I didn't only get to spend quality time with my family but also came back with lots of gifts. She bought me these shoes from Bianco, denim dress from H&M, gave me a jumpsuit from Oasis and did my hair. I don't have images of all the items yet and don't have the time to do that now but I will update this post soon so stay tuned.

Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of what you can't change.

Identifying, knowing and sticking to one's personal style can be a challenge especially now, when everything is all about trends. However, taking on that challenge will earn you a sustainable and eternal style. It will also save you from becoming a merchandise for marketers who are always giving unsolicited advice about what you should and shouldn't wear. like chanel says "fashion fades but style is eternal". Dont get me twisted, I'm not saying incorporating some trends you like into your personal style is bad, all i'm saying is that being aware of what your personal style is, before deciding on which trend to incorporate in your wardrobe will give you control not only over your style, but also your Economy. Knowing your personal style is also the secret behind building an efficient wardrobe, that will quicken your dress-up routines and most importantly less unnecessary buys.

Building a wardrobe like that takes a bit of creative research, grab a pen and a paper for notes on how to go about finding and knowing your personal style.

Step 1: Take a look at your current wardrobe, note down your favourites (pieces you mostly reach out for), motivate (explain in details) why they are your favourites etc. After doing this step, you will be left with a big list full of details that embody what you love, like and dislike, which will give you a Picture of your personal style.

Step 2: look outside the box, for example your favourite blogs, online shops and Magazines for more inspiration. Save the pieces that appeal to you, when thats done, ask yourself, what and why you like the piece, then note it down.

Step 3: Now go over your notes again and cross out anything that doesnt appeal or seem important to you anymore.

If you carry these steps out as described, you should be left with a manual for your personal style. This manual will guide you when decluttering your wardrobe and when shopping for new items.

Goodmorning peeps! If you've been following my blog lately, then you'd be wondering why I'm talking of first impressions of different cities. Recently I had a mini Europe tour, lol, and that's why I'm reviewing some of the cities I'd been to. 

Copenhagen was my second city and unlike my experience in the first city Frankfurt, Copenhagen was more promising. On arrival to Copenhagen, I was warmly welcomed with very friendly smiles and great service. I was impressed by their English, tolerance toward complaining, angry and confused tourists. 

For example, I happened to arrive Copenhagen without a bank card, unfortunately for me my uncle whom I was visiting couldn't pick me up from the train station and I couldn't pay my ticket to go meet him. What did I do? Well i went to the train office to explain. On my way back from there, I was stop by a lady asking questions about the service at the train office. She asked me about how I felt about the service, and I told her how I honestly felt. She understood me, and wished me good luck at finding a ticket to my uncle's. After walking around the train station a while, I bummed into her again, she asked how it's going and explained. She then asked me how much my ticket cost, I told her and she decided to buy me the ticket. That's how I reached my destination on that faithful day. 

The rest of my stay in Copenhagen was met with thesame kind of treatment. Which made me almost wish I had moved to Copenhagen. If you've been a tourist in Copenhagen like me please let me know how your first experience was. If you've never been there I hope this post inspires you to add it to your wunderlist.

Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of what you can't change.

Goodmorning peeps! If you haven't read the first part of this post, my first impression of Frankfurt Germany, I recommend you do. Though the start of my journey was terrible, the rest was awesome. I didn't only get to see my elder sister whom I've not seen in10years, I met my brother-in-laws and cutest nephew "Bubbles". 

This encounter was the peak of my stay in Germany. Other highlights would be the grill at a very cozy spot, the beer and beer glasses, the new and funny encounters and the games. I had more fun than I had anticipated. Therefore, I'd overlook my ill first impression of Frankfurt , Germany for this priceless feeling anytime, any day without blinking twice.

Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of what you can't change.
