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 

With a hint of Summer 

The weekend is upon us, Lovies! In honor of Throwback Thursday, I’ll be sharing an outfit from last summer. I was in Nessebar with my s/o when we decided to follow these random signs, discreetly pointing to an Eko Bar. We weren’t sure what we are getting into and the place turned out to be mind blowing! Someone transformed their backyard into a hand made cave bar! 

Our scheduled date night turned into a Wonderland adventure! I’m glad I chose this fabulous dress (I made it myself), for that particular night! I strongly recommend you find the Eko Bar on your next hipster adventure in Old Town Nessebar, Bulgaria! 

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for these long summer nights with loud music and cold drinks! 
With Love, Silvia Mèlange

                С полъх на лято 



Уикенда е почти тук, Любовчета! 

Днес ще ви върна назад във времето с полъх на лято! Миналата година посетих Несебър с половинката ми. Беше петък вечер, традицонната ни месечна среща. Разхождахме се из стария град и на шега решихме да следваме случайните табелки със стелки, които забелязахме дискретно окачени на няколко стари сгради. Така намерихме Еко Бар Майкъл! Невероятно местенце; бивш заден двор преустроен в ръчно изработена пещера с мостове и водопади в самия бар! 

Както снимките по-горе подсказват, срещата ни се пренесе в страната на чудесата! Горещо ви препоръчвам да издирите бара следващият път, когато посетите стария град! 

Не знам за вас, но аз вече нямам търпение да дойдат дългите летни нощи със студен коктейл и солен полъх! 
С обич, Силвия Меланж 

Less is more

Greetings Lovies! 
This past Friday I attended the closing night of Sofia Fashion Week SS17. My schedule is so busy, that’s the only night I managed to grace with my presence. I won’t go into detail about my disappointment in the organization of the event and I’m not sure I’ll be writing a post about the clothes. Today, I’ll just share my look with you:


While I was going through my closet, searching for an outfit, I caught myself craving simplicity and comfort. In the sea of recycled prom dresses and heels one simply can’t walk in, I went for a Tommy Hilfiger dress, a statement piece worth remembering. After some deliberation, I decided to stick to comfort and paired it up with cute kitten heels from Esprit and minimal jewelry- a Pandora bracelet in old silver and my favorite name necklace. Wavy hair and a pop of red on my lips from Mac to finish the look: 

Keep it classy, ladies! 
Love, Silvia Mèlange

        Когато по-малко е повече



Привет, Любовчета! 
Този петък посетих последната вечер от седмицата на модата в София пролет-лято ’17. Графикът ми се пука по шевовете и това беше единственото събитие, което успях да вмъкна тази година. Няма да навлизам в детайли за разочарованието ми от организацията и чалгата, последвала ревюто на Валентино. Не мисля, че ще има пост за ревютата, които гледах. Миризмата на пот и задуха в залата победиха дори правостоящата тълпа по дънки и джапанки (?!). Днес ще говорим само за моят тоалет (на снимките горе). 

Докато преравях гардетоба в търсене на тоалет, усетих че жадувам нещо семпло и удобно. В морето от бални рокли и токчета, на който не можеш да застанеш камо ли да ходиш, аз избрах семпла, но открояваща се рокля от пролетната колекция на Томи Хилфигър и ниски токчета от Есприт. Минимални бижута: гривна от Пандора в цвят старо сребро и любимата ми огърлица с името ми. Добавяйки чуплива коса и малко червено на устните ми от Мак, съм готова да покоря света! 

Класа, момичета, там е разковничето! 
С обич, Силвия Меланж 

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!

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 🔝

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.

My month in Instagram posts *January*

Happy Thursday, Lovies!

I’ve been so busy at work, I’m not realizing I haven’t even posted on Instagram as much as I usually do!

I did manage to change my hair a little bit and visit an art gallery on a work related event. I can’t share much else at this time, but soon I will reveal what I’m really up to! And it’s good!

In other news, we are six to seven weeks away from Spring and I don’t know about you but I’m ready for this snow to be gone-zo!

As we enter “The month of Love” that’s all I wish for you- Love! Love yourself- that’s the most important Love before any other. Whether you are single or in a relationship, you have reasons to celebrate this month!

With all my Love, Silvia Mèlange

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
