When i was in kindergarden, i was asked what i wanted to be when i grew up.My answer?I wanted to be a bride.While i don't remember this story, my aunt recently shared it with me.To be honest, i didn't expect that   reaction from me and i would've imagined that i wished to become an actress since i loved movies so much, but also because now i'm not that type of girl that thinks too much about marriage.Then i remembered that at that time i had a beautiful doll dressed in a fabulous wedding gown and all i wanted was to look like her one day.I do remember that i actually took the doll to the Christmas festivity and it instantly became the star of the show because every girl wanted to hold her and told their parents that they wanted to have one just like mine.

The truth is that most women start thinking about their big day from a very young age.Since we are children, in our eyes the big day is not about gettting an important job, getting a promotion or being the best at something.The big day equals getting married.While it's nothing wrong with that and it's a wonderful thing to do if you love someone and you are ready to start a family, i feel like people should stop putting that kind of pressure on little girls and let them dream a little bigger.
My parents were never the kind that talked about marriage like it's the ultimate thing for a girl to do and never pressured me about it.The problem is when you constantly hear other people ( who come in a large number) saying to girls that are about 19-20 that the next big step is to get a husband.They try to fix them up because everyone has boys, nephews, neighbours or cousins that are single.When they ask them if they have a boyfriend and they say no, they look at them with pitty saying: "Don't worry, you'll find one".And what happens when the girls don't like none of the boys that they're introduced to or they simply say that they're good on their own?Of course, they too picky and nothing is good enough for them!
And then there are the women that reach a certain age and when i say "certain age" i mean over 24-25 and are still single.If they already are over 30 and don't have a ring on their finger  is considered as a tragedy for most people.They might win a Nobel prize and they wouldn't care that much:"Yes, it's a great achievement, but the poor girl is single".
Just because you are a girl, it doesn't mean that you should only be married, cooking and taking care of the children.You can do all of these things one day, after you do whatever you want to do for yourself first.You should live a little before you make such an important step and you should be mature enough to start a family.
Being single might be a little sad sometimes, but it's not as sad as being married to someone just because you had to or everyone was doing it and you wanted to be a part of the trend.Like it or not, that's why most girls get married.After all the excitement for the wedding preparations and the actual wedding day, there is nothing much left if the reason you got into this was only because you thought it was the right thing to do.
You can get married at 20 or at 40, it doesn't really matter.All you have to do is to be sure about it and to be in love.But love likes to give us a hard time because it's not easy to find it or to stick to it.It comes at the right time, not when we want it to come.So, work on your future and make sure to check for the love signs once in a while because you wouldn't want to miss them.
Spread your wings,girls!

It's been a while since i posted something, but unfortunately i don't have time to take care of the blog.I thought that i should make it up to all of you who still visit it and create an article about spicing up your outfit.We women get bored of wearing the same clothes over and over again and our main natural instinct is to go shopping for new items.When buying something though, you have to think carefully if it's worth it and if there is more than one way that you could wear it.My advice is to focus more on accessories and jewelry, because they can change your whole look and make it seem like it's brand new.

Today we're going to talk about how armour inspired accessories are actually worth having in your closet and how they can add extra glamour to your evening wear.The jeweled body armour from the picture above will look absolutely fabulous over a simple dress and you can wear it over anything you like.As much as i like this idea, i have to state the obvious: it's quite difficult to find such luxurious and beautiful body accessory and if you do find it, it's probably going to be quite expensive.But is it worth it?Oh,yes!

An even more luxurious idea is the one presented in the picture above.I don't know about you, but my dream is to be able to cover myself in jewelry.This exquisite piece can also be worn over a plain dress.Both will cover almost the whole front side of your dress.

If you think that the other pieces are too much, you can choose something more simple like these one shoulder epaulettes.The best thing about them is that they're not that hard to do them yourself.For example, for the one presented in the second picture you will need some chains, feathers and some small jewelry.It doesn't take long to put them together if you're crafty, plus it will look fantastic!The one made from pearls can also be recreated if you buy a string of pearls ( they don't have to be expensive) and a brooch.

A third way of wearing epaulettes is on your shoulders and they can also have chains or any other extra accessories.If the jeweled body armours are too pretentious and can be worn mainly over dresses, these babies can decorate you coats, your blazers, dresses and tops.

So, this is today's idea of recreating an old look with some exquisite body accessories.It's great if you can find them in stores or you can make something similar yourself.Another solution would be to go to a taylor, so they can do them for you.I will try to recreate one of these beauties and i will post the final result and give you extra tips.Have a nice day!
