Yas Island: Shopping & Cocktails

I'm continuing my Abu Dhabi post series. This was the day I dedicated to shopping, since I hadn't had much time for that because, like I said, everything is so far apart. So we went to the Yas Island especially cause my friend told me it's the only place they sell Victoria's Secret Pink collection. I just had to check it out! So a day of shopping really turned into shopping at one store and spending all my money there! xD You will see what I got in one of my future posts I hope.
We spent the evening drinking cocktails at the Stars & Bars bar at the beautiful Yas Marina.
My dress is by PinUp Art from Belgrade, it's one of my fave summer evening dresses, but this WAS a special occasion, so I wore it all day!

Dress: PinUp Art, shoes: Levi's, handbag: Guess

Liebster Award

Thanks so much to my girl Sylvie Little Corp Goth Girl for nominating me for the Liebester Award, it means a lot! Also, she's been supporting me from my earliest blogging days!
1. Post the award on your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
3. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have fewer than 200 followers.
5. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.


1.  When and why did you start blogging?
This January. I always knew I wanted to do something with fashion, but since I can't draw, design studies were not an option. So I decided to study business and maybe have some side-profession/hobby in fashion. I was on various social networks like tumblr, instagram, pinterest, but none of it can compare to a real blog. I do have a talent for writing as well, but I'm still self-conscious about writing some personal stuff.

2.  With MP3s and internet streaming, do you still buy CDs or DVDs?
To be honest, where I live, I never could find the bands I like, and ordering online is also not an option, so I download music. I remember when I was like 11 I was so excited to find a Bush CD in Belgrade! The last CD I bought was probably 30 Seconds to Mars back when I was in Canada. I do love nice artwork and lyrics in the physical copy!

3.  How would you describe your style of dress?
Gothabilly glam-rock emo :p

4.  What religion or philosophy do you ascribe to?
I believe in some higher power, like the Universe, but I'm not sure what to call it. I believe in the afterlife, angels, tarot, astrology and all things metaphysical, I think it's a sign of an open mind.

5.  What are your favorite TV shows on the air right now?
Idk... I don't watch TV, but I can never get tired of Ghost Whisperer, guilty pleasure! 

6.  What other hobbies do you participate in, besides blogging?
I dance and collect Iron Fist stuff, does that count? xD

7.  If you participate in the arts, which ones do you participate in?  Are you a hobbyist or a professional?
If dancing is an art then yeah, I've been practicing various kinds of dance for 6 years now.

8.  If a movie was being made about your life, which actor/actress would play you?
I don't like actors, maybe Gwen Stefani or Courtney Love xD Or Lady Gaga of course!

9.  Choose one: Coffee or tea? 
      Coffee for sure, tea is only flavoured water to me, I only like chai latte!

10.  What colors have you dyed your hair?
 The base was always blonde, but I almost always have some highlights - pink, purple, black, red...

11.  Introvert, extrovert, or ambivert?
I do like going out more than most people and expressing my feelings, but I don't like large groups of people and public speaking, so I guess ambivert?


1, My fave band in the world is German darkwave band Diary of Dreams. My fave concerts were Metallica (first), My Chemical Romance and Rammstein (last).
2. I enjoy beautiful words more than anything and lyrics are extremely important to me.
3. Two years ago I lost the person I loved the most to cancer - my Mother, and I still can't believe this happened to me and I'm not sure life will ever make any sense again.
4. I either like extremely depressive music or upbeat dance music - nothing in between!
5. I'm obsessed with fashion in a way that's probably not normal. When I see an outfit I like I have to either take a picture of it or remember it and then recreate it on Polyvore! I also do screenshots of videos.
6. I hate modern day values and conformity more than anything. I avoid Facebook as much as I can.
7. I had a scholarship for one year in Vienna and it was the best time of my life. I wish I could go back there, if opportunity arises.
8. I travelled most of Europe, Canada, Egypt and now the Emirates.
9. I speak Serbian, English and German well, I also studied Latin for four years. I was the best student in class both in elementary school and high school.
10. I was thinking about studying Literature or Psychology, but my ultimate dream would be to become a rockstar xD
11. I was teased about my fashion style in school, but I never changed and conformed! 


Lie awake in bed at night
And think about your life
Do you want to be different?
Try to let go of the truth
The battles of your youth
'Cause this is just a game

7 star Hotel, 24 Carat Coffee, Beach & OOTD

First of all WARNING: this is gonna be a looong post, longest ever! It was the 2nd day of our UAE visit, and we took like a million pics! First in a park, then in the Emirates Palace, and lastly on the beach (where we were going anyways, but by the time we got there there was no more time for swimming or anything).

Now, about the Emirates Palace: it's not really a royal palace but a seven stars hotel, but sure feels like a real palace. If you only want to spend one day in Abu Dhabi and taste that royal life, I'd suggest going there. Now, the Palace is famous for its specialties with gold, among which are coffee, burgers and fries, which are served in the lobby in Le Cafe. There is a smart casual dress code, so we had to cover up, since my dress was more meant for the beach really.
The coffee also known as the Palace Capuccino is a superior blend of aromatic coffee sprinkled with 24 carat gold flakes. Since the Emirates epitomises luxury and decadence in every way, I think this special beverage is a perfect representation of that and you shouldn't feel bad about spending your tourist money since you probably won't find it anywhere else in the world! Btw, in the Palace there are also parties called Ladies Nights, where as a woman you can drink for free the whole night, in a 7 star hotel! I think Abu Dhabi is unique in this way.
And if you take anything with you from the Emirates, why not take some gold in your digestive system? I haven't checked, but if iron is good for your body, then gold would probably be even better! Eat gold for breakfast - shine all day! <3
