2016... What a year

Well 2016 has been all kinds of crazy, things have been bad and really good, but stepping into 2017, I feel really good. I'm happy and I'm grateful! I don't feel like I'm stuck in the middle of anything. I feel like I know what I'm doing (kind of).

Blogging for perfection.

The number of draft posts I have just sitting there is actually crazy. 'The picture is not good enough..' 'It sounds too boring...' I tell myself. As if I forgot who I'm actually blogging for. Me, myself.

So why is there this perfection attached to blogging? The stigma here is ridiculous. I mean everyone has to start somewhere, grow from something, improve.

Testing out NYX makeup| Angelikablogs

There comes a time in your life when you just gotta  let go and try something new... NYX has finally hit proper shops in the U.K. becoming more accessible than ever (thanks for that NYX). ]

From our beloved lip butters we all drooled over through our youtube screens, to finally being able to access them ourselves- I'm sure our wallets are super happy about that, not.

What I wore to work| Office Outfit #1

Hello lovelies, today I'm back with an Office/ Smart Casual outfit. If you need some 'what to wear to the office' inspiration, you will be seeing a lot more of those outfits on this blog. My office wear is quite laid back, so smart casual office wear, is the attire and I'm very happy about that! I'm lucky enough to be interning with another blogger (Seima's Blog) and we thought why not take time out of our lunch and shoot for each other?!

And without further ado, leggo!

Missguided Wishlist: Autumn EDITION 2016

Are missguided not absolutely killing it on the social media scene? I'm completely obsessed with their twitter and Instagram feed, so much so I decided to do an Autumn inspiration/ wishlist. I hope you like my collage I made and let's get right into it! 

Is sun the recipe for happiness?


Blue Hue.

The sun is shining here in Birmingham, and no matter what's happening, there is nothing better than waking up to the comforting sense of fresh air with the rays of sunshine feeling your skin coyly. I really don't think we stop enough and embrace the little things. Like the daisies scattered around as you aim to proceed to your destination or the leafs brushing against each other in the tall, aged tree tops making quant music in mids of a busy city centre... Theres something about spring and summer that I really really love...


So, I've been lucky enough to have all these balls at my university that I had the opportunity to attend. Before I went to university, I never really had the opportunity to wear floor length dresses, so I was super happy with all these events that were coming up. I thought I'd share a few dresses that I personally think look timeless and classic, in case you have any events to attend like summer balls or graduation balls, or perhaps you were an invitee as a plus one? Being a student, I was of course shopping on a budget, so if you're looking for affordable, yet very classy evening wear dresses, you may find this post useful!

Who is Angelika?!

Hello, my name is Angelika. Who is Angelika? Well, I though it's about time, and I'm here to tell you more about myself.

From many of my blog posts you may have gathered, that I'm a very self motivated individual as I constantly write about overcoming hurdles, whether in terms of going through life or university. The most important thing for me is to always stay true to who I am and what I value. Self motivation is a huge part of who I am. Over the years I have learnt to rely on myself to be strong and resilient in any situation.

How do I do that?

5 myths about short hair

Budapest Vibes- Take life with a pinch of salt.

So for my birthday I was gifted one of the most amazing gifts ever- a trip to Budapest! Seriously, who knew I lived so close to somewhere so beautiful?! 
Everywhere we went was just beautiful. Every corner of the street, every little passage way, every building and every crack. It was so cheap too, so you can definitely experience the food (because priorities) and the sights and all that comes with it very affordably! 

'It takes 5 seconds to change your mind'

Fear of failing and not succeeding is the primary ingredient of failure and lack of success. Isn't it funny how life works?! That's the question I've been repeating over and over more frequently than I realised, but it's true.

Valentines Day.

There are many types of valentines day people in the world. The ones that are in complete denial of the existence of the day 'What even is valentines day?'.
