How To Use Your Time Well?

Burberry Handbag

Hi guys

I had a friend when I was a teenager who used to do her homework on the way to school, in a moving car. I, on the other hand, couldn’t even look down at my book without feeling sick. I still have the same problem. I get carsick so fast that I can’t even text someone while I’m in a car, bus or train. Therefore seeing someone reading a book or working on a laptop makes me envious of them. They’re using the precious time being proactive while all I can do is to look out of the window avoiding motion sickness, such a waist of time. If you have the same problem surely you understand my frustration.

That’s one of the reasons that I love Audible. Since couple of months ago when I started to listen to my favorite books on Audible my life has changed. It actually lets me take advantage of the time I used to waist on my way to work or school. Nowadays I listen to any material that I find useful. Beside a huge range of books there are courses available that one can listen to, depending on one’s line of work or study.

Audible is part of Amazon company. As a result all Amazon prime members are automatically sign to Audible and can use it for free. Since I’m not a member, I pay 14,99 dollar monthly for Audible and I can say with confidence that it  is money well spent. Every member receives one credit every month that allows them to buy a book without any extra charge. That’s how I roll, all books I have in my Audible library have been purchased by monthly credit. I can proudly say that I’m building an amazing collection for only 14,99 dollar per month, which is a bargain.

 

 

Other reasons to love Audible is that one can have it on every device from iPhone to Pc. It’s the easiest app I’ve ever worked with. No matter how limited is one’s knowledge of using computers or smart phones, they can get a handle on it in no time. Therefore I think it’s an amazing gift for almost everyone. You can give a membership as a gift to anyone you love, paying for only one month or the whole year. I think that’s a gift of lifetime.

You also can share books that you like with your friends and family no matter where they are. For me that’s one of the huge advantages of Audible. Sharing knowledge is one of the most precious gifts. Also it reminds me of my childhood and all those books that my grandfather had bought me through the years. That was one of our family traditions. Twice a year he used to buy a book for all his grandchildren. Those books are still one of my most valuable possessions. The collection is his legacy in addition to be a reminder of his love and care for me . Now I’m trying to build a digital version on Audible, that will last forever , for myself and all those that I care about.

You can try Audible for two weeks free of charge. During this trial one can have two free audio books of their choice to listen to.

How To Build a Wardrobe On a Tight Budget

Esprit hatHi Guys

Colors and styles change from season to season while for most of us it’s not possible nor practical to change our whole wardrobe. So the best way to keep our style updated is to find pieces that works with the clothes that we’ve already have. To do so you need to have timeless pieces that you can mix & match. So how do you do that on a tight budget?

Ecco shoes

1- Basic pieces

We all know that the most important part of any wardrobe is basic pieces. The trick is to pick appropriate pieces according to your lifestyle, job and age. Although I believe that one can be chic and stylish at any age it’s important to understand the difference between what is suitable for a professional woman and what suits a teenager. Also go for high quality pieces since you are going to wear them over and over again.

2-Don’t let cliché define you.

Buy only pieces that you can match and mix without falling for “must-haves”. For example if white is not your color instead of white shirt buy a denim shirt. The point is have a well made shirt that you can wear on different occasions. Other colors that are good options are navy, beige, royal blue, grey or black. Having a white shirt just for sake of it, is waist of money and won’t help you in any way.

3- Invest in jeans

You need at least one pair of jeans that fits you perfectly. Choose your favorite style and color then you can wear it all year around.  Since denims get better through the time you can look for a pair of jeans on second-hand websites. Remember “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure”.

4-Accessories are important

When it comes to accessories pick your battle wisely; put your money on those that you love and use the most. Don’t pay too much for trends that won’t last more than a season instead go for classic pieces with high quality. For example a beautiful well made scarf will never go out of style and will make any outfit chic instantly.

5-Bags and shoes

I suggest to go for faux leather. There are lots of beautiful well-made options available these days. They are less expensive and cruelty free. Zara and Mango have many different styles which are affordable and chic.

6- Occasion outfits

You don’t need any fancy dresses in your wardrobe. So don’t spend your money on them, not even when they’re on sail. If there is a special occasion you can rent a dress. Just google “rent a dress” and you’ll find many websites that provide such a service. You can look like a million bucks without actually spending a fortune.

Tuxedo Jacket

H&M tuxedo jacket

Hi guys

This jacket reminded me of YSL suits so I knew I wanted it the second I saw it. I love the color and the cut. It’s not too tight which is a good thing for a curvy girl like me.

I wear it with a pair of wide leg pants and a bralette. It’s a perfect combination for the night out during Spring time. I feel sexy without showing too much. In addition to that the jacket is a great choice of cover during chilly Spring nights.

layering accessories

The whole look is simple so I went for layering accessories and animal print bag just to add that little something to the outfit.
