#INSTAWEEK


Let's go back in time to two weeks ago when I landed in beautiful San Francisco and took a bus to where my new (temporary) home is now. I came to Napa Valley thanks to my wonderful friend who recommended me for a job she used to do, and I will be forever grateful for her thoughtfulness! Good things truly do come to those who work hard, so don't be afraid to put in work! 


My recent views are killers! I live in beautiful Saint Helena where vineyards are just outside the door... and when I'm done working, I can relax by the pool and just reflect on great opportunities I'm glad I was willing to take.


Isn't Summer just the best time of the year?! I don't know about you but it's my absolute favorite, and oh, in exactly a month and a day I'm turning 25! No reasons to complain about over here ;)


Living in a new place means getting to try new things. This kombucha drink is definitely something else and if it's healthy and good for you, then why not? Even if it tastes like a wine that went bad ;P
Oh, and those peaches! Freshly picked from our tree are an every day staple! I even took on a baking job and made a peach cobbler that actually tasted good! Win win.


Summer, summery, summerish ootd. I'm all about denim shorts, fun prints and aviators!
You can read my recent post about this Sheinside top here.


A couple inspirations as of late. A fashion blogger Julie Sarinana from Sincerely Jules has actually been a huge style role model for me for a couple years now, and I truly believe everything she wears and photographs is on point. The picture on the left is from her recent trip to Cuba. See her Instagram here.
As far as Kendall Jenner, I saw her in this dress somewhere on Instagram as well, and just couldn't take my eyes off of her! How gorgeous is this dress (in love with the color and design!) and her effortless modeling?


My latest attempt on a sexy summer asymmetrical LBD. Read more about it here. Fun fact: Opposed to Kendall Jenner, my modelling was not as effortless as it may seem, and it took a couple hours of uncomfortable arching my back to take a few good shots! I'm so appreciative for all the great comments on this post from you guys, just wanted you to know about behind the scenes of those shoots! Let's just say, if it wasn't for my boyfriend's patience and encouragement, I probably wouldn't even crack a smile that day!


FOOD fact: I have the biggest sweet tooth ever, so the quickest way to my heart is a plate full of pastries! If you don't feel like eating sweets, just cook me something Polish and I'll be happy too! Seriously though, stuffed cabbage (golabki) are my favorite meal to make (funny enough my mom taught me how to make them through Skype ;) - thanks mom!), so usually when I serve them, you know I'm trying to impress somebody ;P


Anybody feeling me right now? Weekends usually seem so short, but thankfully I am in a beautiful place right now where every day feels like I'm in paradise, anyway! 
That being said, I'm off to taste some wine! 

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. I'm glad you're enjoying your stay in your temporary home, I can only dream of living in such a I would call 'blog worthy' place. You look amazing in that black dress like Khloe Kardashian! Wish I could rock a dress like that!

  39. Great pictures. I'm bias because while visiting the New York area and posing over in Brooklyn, you managed to get my Manhattan apartment in the photo. I live on the east river at 25th street and the 4 extremely tall buildings sticking out of the water is where I live. Love it. Thanks for showcasing NYC in all it's beauty.
