9.1.14

Best of 2013



You thought I probably forgot about my tradition that has been going on since 2009? No I haven't! This post is usually my favorite one to make and it takes quite a lot of effort. But this year I really would say was the most insignificant of all my life. I was thinking about my favorite moments my best experiences and there were only a few that came to my head- visiting my friends in Lithuania and starting university. But minus my lack of excitement for the actual year there were some things that really stood out.

Model Crush:

Like every year I find a new model crush but to be honest for me there's no one like Abbey Lee. I don't know why I was so fascinated by her and followed her every move. Her stepping out for a movie career made me stop looking into fashion shows and editorials from all over the world. But thanks to the degree I am taking now it made me get back into it. So this year was one blond Russian that stood out because of her beach blond hair and that was Sasha Luss which I featured in my blog not so long ago. And I wasn't wrong about her since she is now one of the faces of the SS 14 Chanel campaign and also scored her first Vogue Russia cover.

Musical surprise of the year:
 .


Beyonce, and her visual album. Any of you that actually know me in real life or that read my blog when I started it in 2009 in blogas.lt know that I am actually a huge fan of Beyonce and I have been since I was about 5 years old when Destiny's Child released they're first video on MTV. So she released her album not announcing anything to the public and actually filmed a video for every single song which fascinated me since it has never ever been done before. Unfortunately all of them aren't available to watch online but since I bought the album I saw every single one of them. My favorite one's were Pretty Hurts because of the message it portrays and Mine with Drake since the video was really artistic. But one of the best songs was Yonce and the video left me speechless because it featured such supermodel faces as Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman and  Joan Smalls. Also one of the best moments of my new year was that I bought myself tickets to see Beyonce in March.





Watch other parts of her interview on her visual album on youtube.

 Blog crush of the year:



I honestly stopped reading most of the blogs. I usually just stalk my favorite bloggers on instagram now, but there was one that I got a little blog crush which was Kenza. I was impressed by how successful she's got recently having her own clothing line. The fact that she is insanely gorgeous and also follows a healthy lifestyle is also an added bonus. If you haven't heard about her already take a look here.

Bag of the year: 

Like every year I obsess over a new it bag. I still have a non-dying love for the Celine and Phillip Lim purses but this year I remembered an older classic which I stared at in Selfridges for ages it's the fabulous Givenchy Antigona bag.

Favorite collections of the year:


No surprise like last year my favorite show was Balenciaga's SS 14 collection. I think Alexander Wang is just making the collection outstanding and giving it more of an urban vibe which makes me love it. The shapes, the colors and the textures are everything I would wear every day. Another collection which I loved was Alexander's personal collection- with all those oversized shirts and the infamous parental advisory sweatshirt.

Best new TV show: 

Since I am a die-hard Vampire Diaries fan finding out they created a new show from some characters of the show was like getting two presents when you were expecting one. So if you are a Vampire Diaries fan you will be pulled into the Originals really quick. I do admit it got even more interesting than the original show. The second one is The Cariie Diaries. If you are a Sex and The City fan like half of the female population you should take a look at how it all began and watch Carrie as a teenager. Not to mention it has my newest guy crush Austin Butler. Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic 

 I hope you all had a good year and I hope this year is going to be more amazing for all of you!

 Lots of love Amanda xx
