OOTD - Inspire by Eponine

Dress: (Persunmall), Cap (Chicnova) 

Hello there! Today's title is very clear... The inspiration behind this look is taken from the character of Eponine from the movie "Les Miserables". I actually hated her character when she was playing herself  as a little girl, but then when she played her grown up version... I connected to her and I related to her words... even though I understood that she kinda deserved her destiny... but at the same time who am I to judge... (Everybody deserves a second chance), I mean Javert did in fact steal and we didn't see him as a theft...) She also got me thinking about the role adults play in our early years... Eponine could have turned out like her parents (evil and malicious) but she didnt...Maybe it was love that changed her to be pure and good, the total opposite of her parents... I think her song on "my own" was not only being on her own without Marius... I think it was more about being on her own in time as well..  I think she was pretty much the only girl that went to battle and the fact that she dressed herself like a boy also says a lot about her position in society... So did I nailed the character? Did I catch her essence with this look?

Skirt (Here)
Hello girls, so here is the whole look that I showed you previously. Unfortunately, I didnt manage to get that many pictures of this look because I was in a hurry and people were taking over the streets...  The title of todays post is from "Les Misarables" I decided to finally watch the movie on Saturday night and I loved it... I cried and I got really emotional but it was totally worth it =)... Have you seen "Les miserables"? Hope you are having a great Monday =)

New in : home decoration

12 sep 2013_51
12 sep 2013_52

Hello friends! Some of you might know that I moved to a new place just recently... I usually dont get to exited about decorating because for one reason or another I just dont have the chance to do it. But I just feel like I needed to put more effort because having a cool place to come home to after school or work is just essential... Ever since I started decorating and moving things around I've been feeling so much better about moving situation... So I though it would be fun to show you this part of my life as well =)... But I think it would be a lot more fun break it down in sections... So if you like these kind of post, stick around =)

Realstars - A new initiative against human trafficking and fair sex - finding your path while still being creative .

27 sep 2012
Pictures from exactly a year ago =)

This is going to be a very different post but I m sure that many of you are going to appreciate it. If you have been paying attention to some of my post  in the past then you would know that  I 've been dragging to tell you a little secret.  I've been super secretive about it because I didn't want to jinx it. So, the story actually starts back in April of 2013 when everybody at school started talking about the next semester and internships. I immediately felt super stressed because I felt like I wasnt going to be able to find anything where I live and moving again to a different city or country wasnt really an option at that moment...
During that time I was also looking for jobs within my field and seeing how hard it was it made me feel even worse. But one day I saw a job opening for this organization called Realstars that was actually base in the city that I live in... What really caught my attention besides the fact that they work against human trafficking, was the fact that they incorporate fashion and art in their work. So I send in my application knowing that I wasn't going to get it because I knew I didn't have that much experience..  But I always think that sending an application event though you know you dont have that much experience is great way to practice and also its a great motivation to get that experience that you are desperately lacking ( and you never know maybe they pick you at the end). After getting my anticipated rejection letter I decided to contact them directly and I ask if they are looking for interns or  volunteer workers. And guess what?  they offered me an internship =) ... So this summer I've been doing small tasks and Im been getting to know the organization even more, and I found that their work goes beyond what I had imagine... 

You are probably thinking right now why did I just share this with you...    Well, there are a couple of reasons why I decided to post this now. The first reason is the pretty obvious, I really wanted to share the word about this organization because I really believe that working againt human trafficking is a great cause and its something that more people should get involve in. There are so many factors that contribute to this problem and by make them visible we are breaking the chain. At the same time I wanted to do this post to maybe inspire some you who are looking for job/internships in and so on...Working with human rights, international relations, gender equality and so on its not easy and the market for these kinda jobs is hard pretty much like any other market, but I believe that if you wanna make a change its important that you start taking baby steps, work withing your community and maybe in a couple of years of hard work you can make that global change working at the job of your dreams... To be honest, Im constantly worrying about my career because I dont want to waste my degree and its just so easy to get stuck when you start applying for jobs with hardly any experience. And I hope that things get better in a year so I can work with the things Im really passionate about.. . I've been sending job applications for months and now after a year since I graduated from International Relations I m finally seeing the product of my work. I manage to get this internship/volunteer job and also I manage to get a part time job as a group leader for another organization that works basically with equality, young adults and human rights and its awesome... Now with my masters degree coming together I feel like Im going somewhere... Even though Im not there yet I feel like that my dream position is coming together =)

The final reason why I wanted to share this post with you is because I wrote an article about Realstars for this British site called Ogunte. Ogunte is basically a company/community that believes in women empowerment and their goal is to help women make a positive impact on people and the word that we live in by enabling them to learn, lead and connect. So if you are interested check their website and also check out the article that I wrote on this link :Read the whole article here
