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 *May* Secret Reveal 

Happy HumpDay Lovies! 
I’m gonna start this post with thanking you all for the amazing birthday wishes; It was a private event this year, just what I needed! 
Now let’s talk about May. Boy, what a month! 
There aren’t too many posts because the major part of the month was spent wrapping up work projects and packing, lost and lots of f#ckin boxes! I swear, if I see one more suitcase, I’m going to cry! 

I did manage to steal two full days, spent by the beach in complete solitude and another two days with no social media at all! You should try it, it’s very good for a mental cleanup, something we all need from time to time. 
Here’s the major news: I moved to Amsterdam!! My s/o and I made this decision a month ago and here we are- living out of a suitcase! At least we have an amazing loft at the Zoku Hotel and they are taking great care of us! 

I’m falling in love with the city more and more each day. It’s the apartment hunt that’s driving me crazy! The real estate market is worse than the one in NYC and that in my book, classifies it as insane! Add “pet friendly” in the equation and jump on the crazy train with me! 

I’ll keep you posted on my adventures as I go. Send some good vibes my way in the mean time! 
With Love, Silvia Mèlange 

Summer Love

Happy Sunday, Lovies! 
I discovered a really cool new spot, providing a bird view of the city. I figured this background would be perfect for my first official Summer inspo outfit. 

I’m totally obsessed with this colorful jumpsuit from H&M! The material is light and has a silky feel to it. All it takes to style is some sparkly shoes and a whole bunch of gypsy bracelets. What more do you need for a lazy vacation?! The only I can complain about is they need to come up with more design prints of the same exact thing and I’ll buy them all! The positive thing- they are currently stoked up in most H&M locations worldwide! Hurry up and get yours, it’s a must for the upcoming summer!  ❤️ 


Love, 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 😉💋

Sunday Brunch 

🇧🇬 below/ български превод

Astronomical Spring might be on its way but today we had a nasty 4°C weather and even snow in the early evening hours. I had an outfit ready to wear and shoot for you Lovies, but in such conditions on a Sunday it’s practically impossible to get me out of the house. Instead of being a couch potato, I decided to throw a little Sunday brunch with some german food and good friends. We also had a special guest- Cookie, the white spitz! 

You have to exhaust her with games if you want a decent shot of her cute self 😻

I also braved the cold and took a few snaps of my casual Sunday look (outfit details below): 



I’m kinda proud of myself because my face doesn’t suggest how cold I actually was, even tho the whole shoot didn’t take more than 10 minutes!

✨Outfit details✨
Victoria’s Secret hoodie (supermodel off duty collection)

H&M light sweater in ink grey 

FishBone distressed denim

Ugg boots- Classic tall boot in chestnut 
How was your Sunday? Are you as ready for Spring as I am? Let me know in the comments below 😉

Астрономическата пролет наближава, но днес бях посрещната от 4°С и дори сняг привечер! Имах съчетан тоалет, готов за носене и снимки за вас Любовчета, но в такова време е невъзможно да ме изкараш от къщи. Вместо да се сраствам с дивана, реших да организирам брънч с немска храна и добри приятели. От снимките по-горе виждате, че имахме и специален гост- Куки, бял немски шпиц, неспособна да стои мирно дори за една снимка (освен ако не я измориш с игри). 

Успях да преборя студа за няколко снимки на мързеливия ми неделен аутфит, издърпан от гардероба на случаен принцип! Леко се гордея със себе си, защото лицето ми на снимките не издава колко ми беше студено докато снимахме, въпреки че цялата сесия не отне повече от 10 минути. 
Как беше вашата неделя? Писна ли ви от студа, както на мен? 
С обич, Силвия Меланж 

Spring vibes 

Happy Saturday, Lovies!

No-jacket-weather in March is a very special gift in my corner of the world and it must be appreciated! My day was packed with chores (like this post if you hate adulting), but I managed to escape to the local park and take a few snaps for you:

Честита събота, Любовчета! 

Март-без-яке е рядко явление в нашият край на света, така че трябва да бъде отбелязано подобаващо! Денят ми беше изпълнен с досадни малки задължения (харесайте този пост ако не искате да сте отговорни възрастни хора!), но все пак успях да се измъкна до близкия парк и да направя няколко снимки. Детайли от дрехите и бижутата 🔝
С обич, Силвия Меланж 

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.
