LIEBSTER AWARD!

Hello everyone,

This week, I'm happily back with a different kind of post! 
One that will be fun because it'll reveal more about me (the BIG personality behind FashionRadi) and it'll give the chance for us bloggers/readers to connect and continue our strong bond. So sit back, relax and enjoy reading my answers to these 10 life changing questions. 
 
Before I start, I want to thank Vildana for nominating me for the Liebster Award. For her continued support and friendship. You can have a look at her wonderful blog here: Living Like V!   

Let's get on with the questions! 

1. What is your biggest fear?

I have a few fears like being afraid of snakes (even thought once I lightly touched one) and a fear of not knowing what the future will bring (how my life will unfold and what path will I walk). But other than that, I'm working on being FEARLESS, so soon expect me to take a photo with a snake around my neck! hahahaha Not that soon, but eventually it'll happen and you'll be my witness. 

2. Do you love blogging? 

I've truly loved it from the very beginning ( the time I found out that my passion is everything that surrounds fashion.) From my fist post ever to this one, I've loved every single second of blogging because I enjoy doing it, I get to connect with lots of bloggers who have the same interests as me, I get to dress up and think of new ideas, I get to hopefully inspire others along the way and I get to escape my reality (get away from everything and just focus on what I love.)  

3. What is the main goal for you in your life?  

That's very simple and easy for me to say! It's all about feeling the JOY of life! 

4. The most wonderful city in the world?  

That would be Samokov, the city where I grew up. It's located in Bulgaria, one hour way from Sofia, the capital. I love it for its beauty, its people........ its everything! Haven't been back in so long (exactly 14 years), so I think it would be time for one of these days to return and see what has changed, don't you agree? I'm feeling both anxious and happy for that day, whenever it may be! 

5. Which countries would you like to visit? 
   
The whole of Europe from Russia to Portugal. It would be a dream come true to go from country to country exploring each culture, taking in all that beauty, history and food. :)  

6. How old are you?  

Recently I turned 25!  Yeahhhhh


7. What is your dream job? 

I'm still figuring out the details, but I have to say I know that it'll be in the field of fashion. Doing what I love everyday, won't feel like a job at all; it'll be play time everyday! 

8. Favorite movie? 

There are so many that have touched me in some way that I cannot pick only one as a favorite. A few that come across my mind right now are Titanic, 27 Dresses, The Holiday, Hairspray and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 which I saw recently. It was hilarious from the beginning until the end, so I highly recommend you go see it if you haven't already (prepare to laugh your head off.) LOL! 


9. Where do you go when you feel low? 

That doesn't happen often because my personality consists of lots of positivism and laughter (funny moments), but when it happens I read or listen to music, but would 100% prefer to go dancing every time I feet low because I LOVE it! I know with dancing that feeling will go out the door right away. Keep your eyes open because where there's music and a dance floor, I'm there! 

10. The person you believe the most?    

This question is easy! That person is called Daniela, my sister. Those of us who have siblings will know how blessed we are to have someone next to us at all times that we can trust, laugh with, share dreams with and grow together. It definitely makes life a lot more beautiful and fulfilling. 

     
      Now it's my turn to nominate you! 
I nominate these blogs!

My Stylish Corner

3. What are three beauty products you can't live without? 
4. Where was your last vacation? 
5. Who is your favorite designer and why? 
6. If you could do anything at all right this moment what would it be and why?  
7. Who's your favorite musician    
8. What is one thing you really want to achieve before you die?  
9. What makes you smile?

EASTER SUNSHINE!

Hello everyone,


Spring is here! Now that Easter is this weekend, no doubt about it, I wanted to create an Easter look that's sunny, fun and hopefully inspiring to you. If you haven't decided yet, what to wear for the family celebration, I hope this post gives you some ideas or brings you joy in some way! Let me know in the comments, which one it was for you... 

When I think of Easter, the first things that come to mind are happy colors like yellow, cute dresses, jewelry and last, but not least family, fun and good food. hahahhah 

With that in mind I knew I had to get my yellow spring dress out of the closet and show it some sunlight. I haven't worn it in a while, but that will change pretty fast now that the weather is dress friendly.:) 
I was incredibly happy to wear it, twirl in it, smile in it...you get the point, that I cannot wait to celebrate Easter in it. I love it! The color, the rainbow belt that cinches at the waist and the way it flares are all things that have me ultra crazy about it! What do you think, does this dress satisfy your Easter fantasies? For me it goes over and beyond! Exactly the kind of dress I picture for Easter or spring in general.           

Like with the previous look, again I added my black strappy sandal heels, which I can't get enough of, so be warned that you'll probably see them in future blog posts as well. Plus, they look great on with anything and everything like my Easter sunshine dress.     

Dress: BCX ( Macy's)   Heels/Cuff Bracelet: EXPRESS  Necklace: Charming Charlie

As a blue accent to this look, I added my favorite necklace and cuff bracelet with three connecting stones. Ideal pieces that make a statement to any outfit of mine. 

HAPPY EASTER! 
Have a wonderful weekend and if you liked this post, please share it with your friends. 
Also, I would love to see what you end up wearing for Easter, so send me your photos on twitter/instagram @FashionRadi!) 

Before I go, here is another colorful spring look that you might like if you haven't seen it yet:Spring Fashion Blooms in the Desert (It was shot in the Nevada desert, so enjoy the spectacular backdrop!)

I'll see you next week with another exciting and fun post from me! Stay tuned and if you like what you see, please follow my blog! Thank you for those of you who already are and for the lovely comments and support. It truly means a lot!    
Bye, bye now!

SPRING FASHION BLOOMS IN THE DESERT!

Hello everyone,


Welcome to the desert!  
Side note: Grab an iced glass of water because it's going to be extra hot :) Not only that but, it's going to be colorful, scenic, pure fun and all in celebration of the arrival of spring. Who's excited for spring? 

I'm thrilled because during this season the weather is the best in Vegas; you can sunbathe, but still breathe (unlike the summer days). Also, as a spring born baby, I find it hard to love any other season as much as this one. The smell of the flowers, the chirping of birds, the blossomed trees, the blue skies, the green grass, the sunshine..... it all gets to me and makes me extra happy. What's your favorite thing about spring? And are you ready to bloom in the Nevada desert with me? If you're wondering how that's going to happen, all I'm going to say is that it's possible (I'll show you the way).


One thing required to bloom all day is something floral. To me spring without flowers is no fun at all, which is why I chose to work around this floral print skirt as my main piece. I'm completely in love with the ruffles, the vibrant colors and that it always puts me in the mood of spring. I can guarantee you (right here, right now) that I'm going to wear it all season long because it's pretty and I love it! 

To play up and add some more color to my look, I decided to go with this green crop top. Forget the black, go for the pop!!! The back is so unique (crisscrossed with zipper in the middle), making it one you won't forget
Do you like it?   

To fight the desert temperatures or show off my new pedicure (you be the judge), I had to go with my favorite four inch sandal heels. They're strappy, they're high and they're all MINE! There's not one thing that I don't love about them. If you're looking for a perfect 10, I suggest you purchase these now. 
Crop-Top: EXPRESS  Skirt: H&M   Heels/Cuff/Bangles: EXPRESS    Rings: Charming Charlie
Can we talk about the jewelry? 
If I talk about it, I won't stop, but ohhh well, I'm sure you're okay with that by now because you know about my jewelry obsession. 
Bangles, rings, cuffs and jewelry tattoos were all part of the plan (welcoming the spring with a bang)!  
For a boho-chic feel, on one wrist I've got this pretty three stone turquoise cuff bracelet. And to balance it all out, I added a set of bangles to the other hand.
That was going to be it, but I couldn't resist adding a few tiny rings that I stacked on almost all my fingers. There's noting better, is there? 

       
With this post coming to an end, I want to wish you a Happy Spring!
Be the flower that blooms and spreads joy wherever it goes. 

Before I go, I hope that you're enjoying my series all about how to dress your body according to your body type. So far I have covered the PEARS and the APPLES! Check them out and stay tuned for the rest!  

Bye for now and see you soon!

HOW TO STYLE: APPLE-SHAPED BODY FOR SPRING!

Hello everyone, 


Happy as could be, I'm back to continue this series of how to style according to your body shape! It's easier than you think. With my tips and tricks in mind, you'll be your own personal stylist in no time. Just remember, when choosing what pieces to wear, make sure they accentuate the parts of your body that you love and hide those that you want to keep to yourself. Mostly have fun and be yourself! 


Today I'm going to cover the apple-shaped woman! (Round and tasty!)


If you've missed the first post of this series, which was all about the pear-shaped woman, make sure you check it out: HERE! (Hopefully it'll change your life in the best way possible!) 


Take out a pen and paper, to jot it all down and........... Let's Get Started! 

Artist:     Instagram: @Danielaelalife    Twitter: @Danielablagoeva 

This above is an illustration of what exactly an apple-shaped woman looks like
She's round on top and thinner on the bottom. If she were to gain some weight, it usually is stored around the midsection, which is why she would want to cover that part of her body the most. But of course, the apples like every other body type have something beautiful and worth showing. They have amazing legs!!! Legs that can be properly shown off with the right choice of clothing.

If you aren't sure what body shape you are, hopefully by now you can identify if you are apple-shaped and are ready to style your body in the best way possible, so you feel confident and ready to take on the world one piece at a time (or continent at a time :))  

     
Because spring is almost here (makes me so happy), I'm going to focus on styling my model to this season. If you're interested, I can do styling tips for every season with each body shape in mind?! But now it's all about the apple-shaped and spring season

This is the perfect outfit for all my spring apples out there!

Top: When it comes to deciding what tops to wear, first you have to take into consideration whether or not you're okay with showing a bit of cleavage. If you are, that's great because it means you can go for different cut necklines like a sexy V-neck, scoop, sweetheart or square tops. This way you have endless options and a way to draw the attention to your chest, preventing anyone even noticing your problem area (your midsection). On the other hand, I know that some women prefer not to go for low cut tops and that's perfectly okay. You'll just have to look for tops with conservative necklines like the boat neck or jeweled ones because they will cover your chest in the most flattering way without showing cleavage. Then, for some fun you can accessorize with bright colored earrings or a statement necklace (choose one) to keep the viewers' eyes away from your midsection. If both of these options don't satisfy you, you can go with a patterned top -one that isn't over the top, but subtle enough because a large pattern will emphasize on the area of your body that you  would rather not draw attention to. Be sure to look in the mirror to see how you look and if you feel it isn't working, replace it with a solid colored top (safer bet)
For my model, I chose this beautiful top, which is perfect for an apple-shaped woman because not only is the neckline appealing, but also the top flares out and falls lower than the hips, making the torso look leaner and longer. Remember, stay away from tops that end right at your waist
As colors go, choose darker colors like gray, black, dark blue, etc. because, for example, a bright red top will do you wrong since all eyes will be on your midsection and upper body. 


Bottom: As I mentioned earlier, apples tend to have great skinny legs, so this is where you get to have all the fun in choosing different lengths and colors, even patterns of shorts or skirts. With legs like these, without a problem, you can wear miniskirts or short shorts. You can literally get away with wearing anything you please on the bottom half of your body. 
Just like I picked these bright colored jean shorts for my model. They give out this spring vibe and most importantly, when you look at the illustration, that's where your eyes go immediately. Remember what we talked about? Accentuate your strong body parts, and bright colored bottoms will do just that! Take note - stay away from jeans that are too tight on you because that will make you seem even bigger on top and most likely they will create one unwanted muffin top. Another trick when shopping for jeans (or jean shorts) is to pick low rise styles because they'll be more flattering on your body shape. And if you want to appear like you have a bigger backside, back pockets are always great (apple shapes tend to have flatter backsides)

I think I covered all the important tricks and tips for the apple-shaped body. I hope you found this post interesting and most importantly helpful. If you have any questions at all that you would like to ask me, write them down in the comments below and I'll be happy to answer them to the best of my ability. Also, you can find me on Twitter and Instagram @FashionRadi! Don't be shy to send me photos of your new and improved spring styles; I would love to see what you have come up with! As always, stay beautiful and enjoy the rest of the day. See you soon!
