COLOR BLOCK FOR NYE


NYE is just around the corner and it's time to narrow down your dress options!

Even though I'm not a huge color freak, I wanted to try something new and play with this neon dress from LaFe Fashion Boutique. I actually won this dress in an Instagram giveaway and I really love it. I thought pairing it with a chunky, oversized pink sweater from Forever 21 would be a fun combo.

Do you think this dress is a NYE material?
 Let me know! If not, I will probably go with the good ol' little black dress as usual...

PREPPY FOR HOLIDAYS


Since holiday season is all about spending time with your loved ones, today I dropped by my best friend's house, as I didn't get to see her over Christmas. I also wanted to say my goodbyes before I leave tomorrow for Texas! Can't wait to be spending NYE away, it's actually a part of my yearly ritual to be traveling and welcoming new year in a new place.

As for my outfit, this is probably the preppiest I have ever been (or will be). My style is usually more street casual, girly, but never preppy. Change is always welcome though, and so here's my grown up version of a Christmas card this year, I think.

I received this starry sweater from BANGGOOD and wanted to bring it to your attention right away. I'm really happy with the quality and its overall look. I think it's a perfect sweater for the holiday season! What do you think?









And how adorable is my friend's puppy dog, Theo?!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! WESOLYCH SWIAT!


MERRY CHRISTMAS!

On this special and dear day to may of us, I want to wish you many reasons to love and be loved. May your day(s) be filled with laughter, family, friends and food!
And then maybe some peace. ;)

This is my fourth Christmas I am spending without my family in Poland, but I sure do feel loved from a far and those I share this day with here in Delaware.

Lastly, as we come closer to the end of 2015, I wanted to thank you all, my readers and viewers, for sharing this virtual journey with me! My almost two years of blogging wouldn't be the same without you guys!



WESOLYCH SWIAT!

W tym szczegolnym dniu, pragne zyczyc wam wielu powodow do radosci. Abyscie kochali tak mocno jak pragniecie byc kochanym. Niech ten dzien (i kazdy kolejny) bedzie wypelniony usmiechem, rodzina, przyjaciolmi, tradycjami i pysznym jedzeniem!

To juz moje czwarte swieta z dala od rodziny w Polsce, ale zdecydowanie nie moge narzekac na brak milosci w tym dniu, zza oceanu tudziez tu w Ameryce.

Na koniec, z uwagi na dobiegajacy koniec roku, chcialam wam, moim drogim obserwatorom i czytelnikom, podziekowac za dzielenie ze mna tej wirtualnej przygody. Ostatnie (prawie) dwa lata blogowania nie bylyby takie same bez was!



Love,

2016 WEDDING WITH COCOMELODY


When I was approached by CocoMelody to talk about wedding dresses for the upcoming year, I immediately said yes. After all, what woman doesn't like to look at pretty dresses, right? Even though I'm not getting married yet, I think it's OK to be pinning wedding looks for a future reference, even if it's just to find out later that my taste has changed.

I always liked simple dresses and with age, I realized I look best in those accentuating my figure. With that said, I still I have no idea what I would wear to my own wedding one day. There's so many stunning options out there! Here's a few ideas of 2016 wedding dresses from CocoMelody. They have a variety of beautiful gowns, from short to long ones, white, pink or beach wedding dresses. Take a look below!





Are you a traditional gal or would you consider wearing a pink or floral dress to your wedding?
Let me know!


Also, take a look at CocoMelody's Christmas sale where they have a lot of dresses on sale not only for the bride, but also for wedding guests or bridesmaids!



Merry Christmas, loves!

BOMBER JACKET

 
There was a time when I was younger when I had only one jacket and nothing to worry about as far as dressing up. Now that I'm older, I can't decide between choosing a moto jacket, trench coat, leather jacket, jean jacket, you know the drill... Actually, if I'm totally honest, I would be wearing moto jackets every day exclusively if I could!
 
Nevertheless, I recently added another piece to my wardrobe and it's this Forever 21 bomber jacket that I am beyond obsessed with. I literally feel like I'm wearing a duvet, it's so cozy. It also doesn't hurt that it adds a bit of color to my mostly black and white (and grey) closet.
 
Speaking of being comfortable, I also have to mention this super fun striped tee from Hot Kiss Clothing. It's not only cute with a sweet message, but it's also made of the softest material possible!

LACE-UP BODYSUIT


I'm not the one to follow every single trend of the given season, but I certainly couldn't resist giving in to the lace-up bodysuits! Especially when one of my favorite brands started selling ones!

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA + GIVEAWAY

 
Christmas is approaching fast, and if you didn't get all of your holiday gift shopping done on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, here's an idea for you.
 
I was recently approached by CaseApp to create a custom design iPhone case of my choice.
I thought it was a perfect time to get my creative fluids going and hopefully, inspire you as well.
 
My CaseApp experience was very fun, inspiring and most importantly so easy! Everybody can create their phone cases or laptop skins by choosing premade designs, or uploading their own photos, graphics and text. It' seriously that easy and options are endless.
Whether you want to design something for yourself or your friends and family, I think it's a great Christmas gift idea, because of that extra personal touch.
 
Below you can find many pre-made CaseApp designs (lots of marble, yaaaaas) and also see how I came up with my iPhone case. I hope these ideas will inspire you to try it yourself.
_________________________________________________________________
 
What's even better?
Especially for my readers, I have a 20% discount code valid through December 14.
 
Just use SHENANIGAN20 during checkout.
 
And how about a giveaway? Show me or explain how you would design your dream iPhone case or laptop skin, and get a free code value of $40 to use toward your Christmas purchase!
 
Email me at paulinaszczp@gmail.com with your ideas or just leave a comment below.
 
The lucky winner will be announced on Sunday, December 13.

 To create my iPhone case, I used a particular photograph for an inspiration. Since I love black and marble is such a hit lately, I wanted to incorporate both into my design. To make it even more personal, I added a text that I have tattooed on my ribs (my very first tattoo I have gotten).
 I wanted my text color to be a little bit lighter to make it look like the words are engraved on the marble.
Overall, I'm really happy with how this design came out.
 
What do you think?
 
 
 
 
 Don't forget to email me and comment below your ideas
to get a chance for a free gift just in time for Christmas! 
 
Good luck!
