Theme 37: Holidays in California. PrettyMissy Look in Davis, Ca

PrettyMissy Lace-Up front sweater in Mustard color. Review

Ben and I spent Thanksgiving in Davis, California, where his grandparents reside. It was my first time visiting Sacramento area, Napa and San Francisco, and I was amazed how beautifully Fall paints Californian cities with its' orange, yellow and red colors. If you have been following my Instagram Stories, you saw all the details of my Californian adventures, however today I wanted to share some outfit deeds with you.

PrettyMissy is an online boutique that I have recently discovered, and they have a lot of very stylish affordable clothes and holiday dresses. I got a lot of compliments on my PrettyMissy front-lace up sweater in a mustard color that worked surprisingly well with my skin tone and my hair that got so dark without summer sun. The sweater comes in Hunter Green and Oatmeal shade as well so definitely take a look!

The over-the-knee boots I am wearing is another staple item of my FW season looks. They don't only look gorgeous, but they are comfortable, which is very rare for any footwear with an elegant thin heel. I HIGHLY recommend Pour La Victoire boots.

Week 27: The Start of 2017. A girl with a plan.

A girl with a plan. How to set goals and manage your own expectations.

I am lucky that, in less than a year, my blog has received a great amount of attention from brands and companies, so now I am able to choose who I want to prioritise and to whom I have to say no.

3. Creating video diaries.

I am very excited to finally start my Youtube channel in 2017. My husband, Ben bought an awesome camera for Christmas, and I am very excited to share detailed reviews and videos from our travel adventures, and blog diaries from me and my other blogger friends.

So, there :) Now I have to accomplish all three of my goals! I promise I will try to keep you updated on my progress and share my other 2017 goals on my vlog diaries.

Are you a girl with a plan?

Check out my next post to read how I get things done and what helps me the most!

It is unbelievably scary and vulnerable to share your goals for the new year. People might laugh you off or will be able to point out your failure at the end of the year. However, here I am, sharing with you my top 3 blogging/writing-related plans for 2017:

1. Finish writing at least one novel.

I have always wanted to be a writer. I don’t know if I will get published this year or at the age of 80 when I am wiser and more proficient in the English language, but I know it will happen. I have several unfinished novels and tons of drafted ideas, and this year I plan to finally complete at least one of my novels and show it to a few agents and publishing houses.

2. Quality over quantity.

Since I want to write more fiction, I want to make my blog more about quality content rather than swamping you with myriad outfit posts.

Week 20: Kauai Island. Exploring the Paradise in Zaful.

Zaful romper. Review by fashion blogger Ulia Ali.

This Week I am going to share not only the remaining Hawaiian beach looks, but I have also written a special Kauai Guide for you!

My husband and I stayed at the St. Regis Hotel in Princeville for the entire two weeks we were on the island. The hotel has one of the most breathtaking views overlooking the blue ocean, exotic flowers and green mountains that look like they are from a magical land. We took many iPhone photos on the hotel's many balconies and terraces, and shot this “Ulia The Explorer” look (ha!) that I wore for our road trip to the Waimea Canyon State Park. 

I wore this Zaful romper which has a great Safari feel about it and my new Patricia Chang Croissant Bag that I won in the giveaway she had last month on her Instagram.
