I go back to December all the time

1 comment

When, with a heavy heart, I was announcing my break from blogging, I said that it could even take me 'up to 2 months'. Looking at it in retrospect it appears that I only got the '2' part right as it took me a whole 2 years to get it together and come back. A lot has changed since then, but if there's one thing that remained unchanged over the years, it's my love for all things fashion.

If you used to read my blog back when it was called Glamour Kills and are still here, I just want to say a heartfelt thank you. It's been a long journey and there were days when I doubted if I could ever return and run a blog that people would actually be willing to read. If you're new to the party, let me briefly introduce myself. My name is Dominika and I'm a 20-year-old university student. I spend a lot of time listening to music, fangirling, gushing over pretty dresses, daydreaming and making mental maps of places I would love to visit in the future.

When I was planning my big comeback, I would always tell myself one thing- 'I want it to be in the summer'. Winter makes fashion blogging a hundred times harder, as if beginnings weren't hard enough. It especially holds true when you live in a place where every attempt to take off your coat in order to take some decent photos bears the risk of turning into an ice cube. However, my procrastinating side got the best of me and I have hundreds of spring/summer photos sitting in my folder while I ended up making my big return in the middle of December instead.

Well, at least my blog will share a birthday with one of my favourite people- Taylor Swift, and this can never be a bad thing. Ever.

I've been thinking a lot about it lately and what I'm about to say is by no means easy for me. In my previous post I expressed my joy about being back in the blogosphere, but I decided that saying 'goodbye' to all of you will be the best idea I can possibly make right now. I've been struggling with a lot of things these days and I pushed blogging into the background. I am definitely in need of some me-time to keep my mind off certain things and simply relax. Don't worry though- I won't be gone for good. I am still going to read your blogs on a daily basis and sometimes even comment on them, so if you feel like talking to me just drop me a line and I promise I will reply as soon as possible. I just want to take a break from blogging as such. I can promise you one thing- I WILL be back for sure. I don't know how long it will take me- maybe a few weeks, maybe up to 2 months or maybe even more... All I know is that once I come back, I will make it up to you. I promise it will be worth the wait. I have so many ideas and I am really looking forward to implementing them.

I hope you will stick with me and my blog or maybe even miss me a little. I know I will. Take care everybody and see you soon!

My fashion cravings: November edition

12 comments


As you might have possibly noticed, I've been MIA for some time now. I guess I needed some time to focus on my studies and think through certain things. I have also been struggling with a sort of seasonal depression, the weather definitely affected my mood and there were times when I felt like abandoning my blog... I realized that I would miss you way too much though! Plus, I still have a lot of ideas that I will try to put into effect when I finally have some more time. :)

Yesterday I started looking through various websites and I put together yet another wishlist. Strangely enough, there are no warm coats or oversized cardigans... I guess the fact that the upcoming winter is my least favourite time of the year is reflected here. Much as I like layering every now and then, the fact that it gets to -15 degrees in winter here is simply unbearable!

While I'm off to take a look at some new posts and comment on your blogs, feel free to drop me a line saying what you think about my fashion cravings and what's on your recent wishlist!

Outfit crush: Spencer Hastings

Leave a Comment
I prepared this post a long time ago and it was supposed to be a part of the Friday's Fancies feature, but as you might have already noticed, I haven't had too much time to update my blog these days. But with the PLL Halloween Special coming up in two days, I don't think I could ask for a better timing... 

I jumped on the Pretty Little Liars bandwagon as I was spending my lazy August mornings in bed with Netflix and, having seen all How I Met Your Mother episodes for the millionth time, I was in desperate need of something new to watch. It took me a mere week to watch all episodes and left me wanting more. As I could relate to both Spencer and Hanna, they immediately became my favourite characters. In one of the episodes, Spencer wore an outfit that took my breath away (minus the knee-highs, I absolutely loathe that trend) and I could not wait to bring my own take to it.

I love the combination of different colours and since I usually go for less vivid ones, that would be a perfect outfit for me to step out of my comfort zone a little. That lace dress is absolutely adorable and if I ever find it in stock online, I'll immediately buy it- that's out of the question!

How about you? Would you possibly wear this outfit?
And if you're just as hooked on the show as I am, whose style do you like the most and what are your thoughts on the upcoming episode? Who do you think is going to die? ;)

P.S. You know it's a great coincidence when you use a random font to put this set together and when you're done, you notice it's called 'Alison Regular'. All I can say is... all aboard the A-train!
