Monthly Insta Update *June*

Happy HumpDay, Lovies!! 

I know it’s almost the middle of July (julyin’), but better late than never! 

Unless you live under a rock, you know by now, yours truly moved to Amsterdam. I also know I promised to go back to regular posting but June simply didn’t allow me! 

Between apartment hunts and hotel switches, I managed to celebrate my 27th birthday with my s/o. You can check my previous post for details. 

I’m happy to announce we finally found an apartment!! I’m absolutely in love with our sunny one bedroom in the heart of Westerpark (google it), and now I’m all about furnishing and decorating. 

Most of our free time has been dedicated to exploring the city, finding new favorite spots and the little gems, well hidden from the tourists. 

I also attended the Cannabis Liberation Day in Flevopark. It turned out to be a whole bunch of people, tripping on shrooms but it was funny to watch and the live music was awesome! 

Our next agenda is to get our kitties over here (my parents are currently cat sitting). I manage to deal with my cuddle withdrawals thanks to the local kitties, who are incredibly sweet and always come to me. 

I’m NOT going to promise you to get back to regular posting because it seems like every time I do, life gets me busy! I hope your month was as exciting as mine and everyone is enjoying the summer! If you are tired of my sporadic posts, follow me on instagram and Snapchat (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates on my adventures. 
Love, Silvia Mèlange 

The Moving Process

Happy Sunday-funday, Lovies!! 
If you don’t follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange), you must think I really suck and I can’t blame you. I’ve been hyping you up for months with this big secret; All I ended up saying was “I moved to Amsterdam” and then I just fell off the face of WordPress! I’m taking the time today to explain myself and to update you on what’s been going on with me. 
I don’t know if you guys ever had to pack up and move to another country. I literally had 2 weeeks to get through everything I own and make the decision what stays and what goes! I had to do this once before, when I moved back home from the US and I had forgotten how cleansing the process is. I also realized how much “junk” I have accumulated in the 3 years I was back home. From cute outfits I no longer wear to things I question my sanity about buying- the struggle was real! A lot of us swear by the “if you haven’t worn it in a year- toss it” golden rule but do we actually follow it?! I know I don’t, so this time I applied a different philosophy: 

    If it doesn’t make you happy-toss it!


It’s going to be a month since I moved tomorrow- I don’t miss or regret any of the items I threw or gave away. I advise you to try this clutter fighting technique even if you are not moving anywhere. 

Finishing up work projects and canceling all sorts of subscriptions and contracts took most of my time. I didn’t really have anything to blog about and I’d rather present you with inconsistent but quality content than pile you with 3 automated crappy posts per day like some ppl do. 

Then there was the emotional part: 

My family is used to my wandering nature by now. However, knowing I live in the same city and for the most part I’m a phone call away has been a nice change for my parents, regardless of my countless business and private trips and after 5 years of me living in the US. Between running errands I was focused on spending time with my family and going to countless gatherings organized by relatives and friends, related to my move. Where I’m from, when you move away (and every time you visit afterwards), you are almost obligated to go to every gathering your family and close relatives organize in your honor, to see you and spend time with you before you move to a new country. 

That pretty much sums it up, Lovies. Tune in tomorrow for a “My first month in Amsterdam” post, where I’ll share some adventures and insights. 

Things are slowly falling into place and this city is really stimulating my creativity. I’m hoping I’ll finally be able to get back to regular posting in July! I have so much to share with you, just bear with me! 

Love you all, Silvia Mèlange 


Monthly Insta Update *April*

TGIF and Feliz Cinco De Mayo, Lovies! 

I’m fully aware I’m a little late catching you up; On the other hand, my weekly recipes are back and I think I’m doing a little better when it comes to sharing outfits with you. 

The month of April was absolutely amazing to me! Other than Easter celebrations, I managed to visit two very favorite places of mine- Rome and Amsterdam, but more on that later! Here are a few glimpses of last month’s adventures:

It was a truly eventful month for me and I have some amazing news coming your way! This post contains a clue so hit me up in the comments if you crack it! 

Spring is in full bloom and I’m loving it! Changes are coming and I promise, I’ll break the news to you very soon! Be on the lookout for my instagram and Snapchat (@SilviaMelange), that’s where I’ll first reveal the huge secret I’ve been teasing you about since February! It might even happen this month if you are lucky 😉💋

Xo, Silvia Mèlange 

Monthly Insta update *March* 

Happy Sunday, Lovies! 
Women’s month might be over but as the weather is getting warmer, the real fun is just beginning. 

March was an eventful month for me. I’m back on the road for work but I manage my time a bit better and that helps me share more looks with all of you. 

If you follow me on Instagram and snapchat (@SilviaMelange), you know all about Bulgarian Liberation Day and all the celebrations I was involved in. You also know I managed to meet my favorite punk band from my teenage years. ☺️

I mentioned my disappointment in this Spring’s Sofia Fashion Week and I’d like to share an important lesson- even if the party sucks, it matters who you are with! 

I’m also cooking more so I’m happy to share my weekly recipe column will be back in April! I’ve had some time to test a few new tricks and dishes I’ll be sharing shortly, so be on the look out for that. 
March was an amazing month for me and I had lots of fun with all my shananigans! I’m looking forward to April as Easter is right around the corner. A quick trip with my s/o is in the works so stay tuned for that (snapchat is your best bet). 

What are your plans for April? Are you exited for Easter? Feel free to share your favorite tricks and tips for dyeing Easter eggs in the comments below! 
Love, Silvia Mèlange 

Monthly Insta update *February* 

Happy Monday, Lovies! 

I’m late with this month’s update but it’s with a good reason! March is always extra special to me because of the many celebrations happening in the first week of the month but more on that later. 

February was short and cold and you guys know from Instagram and snapchat, I wandered around galleries and streets. 

I had a romantic Valentine’s Day with my s/o and we discovered a new hookah bar we love. 

As the weather gets warmer there’s more and more to share and write about. Already planning my next road trip as well, so stay tuned by following me on snapchat and Instagram (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates. 
Love, Silvia Mèlange

Summer dreams in February

Happy Wednesday, Lovies! 
It’s been a minute since I shared an outfit with you. To be completely honest, I felt kind of uninspired; when it’s -20°C I don’t care even if my shoes are different colors, as long as they keep me warm! 

I miss summer and I’m not the only one! Recently, one of my lovely readers told me she’d love to see me with some baby blue accents, as she is also bored with the endless black, grey and brown parade that seems to be an unofficial uniform here throughout the winter months. Well Maria (@freshcutsoflife), I haven’t found anything suiting yet, so here’s a sea themed look, I wore last weekend, the first day temperatures reached 9°C this year! 

Esprit sweater, H&M skinny jeans, Betty Barclay boots


While I was shooting in a small but gorgeous gallery in downtown Sofia (it was closed), I realized how much I miss sharing outfits with you so here’s a few extra shots from the coffee shop I was hanging at 😊

As we are expecting temperatures to steadily increase in the next few weeks, I dare saying I’ll be sharing more looks throughout the month of Love. 

Follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates and occasional snapchat recipes and be on the lookout for a special Valentine’s Day at home recipe and some outfit inspiration.

Happy New Year + Insta update 

Happy New Year, Lovies! May your 2017 be filled with health, love and new adventures! 
My December was crazy packed! Between the holiday parties, last minute shopping and cooking, I need a break after the break! I managed to visit every available Christmas market in Germany and a few festivals here in Bulgaria. Christmas Day was reserved for family time and smiles! 

I clocked in the New Year in the hottest spot in town, 12 stories up with a panorama view of the fireworks over the city (that’s why you should follow my snapchat @SilviaMelange). 


Many changes are coming, as 2017 is officially here, so be sure to subscribe to my blog and follow me on social media. 
With Love, Silvia Mèlange 

A quick TBT

Congrats, Lovies, we almost made it to Friday!! 

If you follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange), you know I made It home safe and sound. I have to catch you up on a few things but for now, here’s a throwback Thursday look from my Wiesbaden explorations. I’m wearing a deep blue knit dress, Nine West cowboy boots and Zara statement necklace and wind stopper jacket:

I’m sure all of us are going crazy with the holidays right around the corner, so you will excuse the quick post! Subscribe to get notified for my next one on places to see and things to do in Mainz, Germany!

Exploring the Rhine river 

Happy Sunday, Lovies! 

In case you follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange), you know by now I’m exploring Hessen, Germany. 

The other day I went up the Rhine river to visit the statue of Loreley and the countless castles along the way. I was hypnotized by the view but I didn’t forget all of you as I sometimes do (guilty!), so I snapped a few pics of my look. I don’t think it’s even worth mentioning how important it is to be dressed warm for outdoor explorations in Germany this time of the year! I was lucky there was no wind so my Zara jacket came, revealing an oversized sweater from Tommy Hilfiger, paired with thermo leggings from H&M and knit Uggs. 

Excuse the face bc the hair is fabulous! 

Like every self respecting fashion blogger, I sometimes search for things on the ground 😂

Visiting this area was a magical experience I recommend to everyone who happens to be in town. Even when it’s chilly, it’s the perfect place for meditation and soul searching or as I call it- getting lost in nature. 

As the end of the year is approaching, we all need some peace and quiet to reflect and plan our next move. What’s your favorite nature spot to chill at? How do you feel about 2016 ? What are you looking forward to in 2017 ? Let me know in the comments below!

Разходки из крайбрежието на река Рейн



Честита неделя, Любовчета! Ако ме следвате из социалните медии (@SilviaMelange), знаете, че в момента пътешествам из Хесен, Германия. 

Преди няколко дни посетих статуята на Лорелай и множеството околни замъци по крайбрежието на река Рейн. Гледката беше хипнотична, но не ви забравих както се е случвало (виновна съм!) и направих няколко снимки на тоалета ми. Не мисля, че си струва да споменавам колко важни са топлите дрехи по това време на годината. Имах късмет- денят не беше ветровит и времето ми позволи да сваля дебелото яке от Zara и да ви покажа грамаден пуловер от Tommy Hilfiger, термо клин H&M, и плетени ботуши от Ugg. 

Като всеки, уважаващ себе си моден блогър понякога търся неизвестни неща по земята:

Горещо ви препоръчвам да посетите статуята на Лорелай и околията ако ви се отдаде подобна възможност. Мястото е сякаш заредено с магия, перфектно за медитация или както аз казвам- да се изгубиш сред природата. Краят на годината наближава и всеки от нас има нужда от място, където да се отпусне и да рефлектира, планувайки наближаващата 2017-та година. Кое е вашето тайно местенце сред природата? Как се чувствате относно отминаващата 2016-та? Споделете в коментарите долу! 

С любов, Силвия Меланж 

My month in Instagram updates *November* 

Happy Saturday, Lovies! 

November was a very busy month for me and I only survived looking forward to my Thanksgiving vacation and Black Friday. It’s always good to visit extended family and there’s never enough time for everything but we always make the best with what we got! 

Nothing puts me in a Christmas mood like visiting Germany this time of the year! The atmosphere and street decorations, the food and the shopping! 

How did you spend Thanksgiving? Are you ready for Christmas? What outfits will you be slaying in this holiday season? Let me know in the comments below! Keep an eye out for my new tips and tricks and follow me on Instagram and snapchat (@SilviaMelange), for daily glimpses of my life.

Честита събота, Любовчета! 
Ноември беше изключително зает месец за мен и успях да оцелея, фокусирайки се върху ваканцията и черния петък в края му! Прекрасно е да посещавам семейството на приятеля ми и времето никога не стига за всичко, но винаги намираме начин да компенсираме! 

Нищо не събужда Коледното ми настроение както Германия по това време на годината! Атмосферата по улиците, храната, пазаруването на подаръци за любимите ми хора ❤️

Вие как прекарахте Деня на Благодарността? Какви са новите ви придобивки от черния петък? Готови ли сте за сезона на празненствата? Споделете в коментарите долу.
