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

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 

A warm October Sunday 

Happy Monday, Lovies! 
Yesterday was the last Summer day for the year and I took full advantage of it! If you have been following me for a while, you know I love nature so I couldn’t think of a better place than the park to celebrate the end of Summer 2016. 

88° F in October is a rare gift in this corner of the world, so I soaked all the vitamin D I could. I wore a drop top from Gap, military green shorts from H&M, Esprit flat sandals and a Nine West leather tote. 


As much as I love Summer, I’m excited for sweater-weather! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates! 
Love, Silvia Mèlange

     
            Топла октомврийска неделя




Честит понеделник, Любовчета! 

Вчера беше последният топъл ден за годината. Ако ме следвате от известно време знаете, че обожавам да прекарвам време сред природата. Най-подходящото място за изпращане на лято 2016 е любимият ми парк в града. Облечена съм с блуза от Gap с падащо деколте, дънкови панталонки от H&M, сандали Esprit и огромна чанта Nine West.

Колкото и да се радвам на температурите, нямам търпение за половери и горещ шоколад! Следвайте ме в Инстаграм и Снапчат (@SilviaMelange) за всекидневни постове. 
С любов, Силвия Меланж
