I came to a realization. It is one of those moments when you feel like you just woke up from a different world and you are finally in the present. One of those moments where you forget everything you believed up until now and start building a whole new plan for the future. What was the realization and where it came from? It came from working a full week on a grape factory and making less than my monthly rent *150 euros. Pretty common? Sure! What I realized was how mindlessly I spend my money. I had a conversation with my mum about 1-2 hours ago...

I woke up mum I said
You? From what? she replied sounding anxious
Woke up and realized that I worked my butt off for a week and only made my rent (aka 150 euros). I continued If I knew I wouldn't have mindlessly spend everything I made through blogging which is quite the sum (almost 2 years of blogging). I made that working from home and doing something I love. Three 'work' days of my blog equal to seven days working my ass off in a factory, improving someone else's business. I have to take orders from people and always reply 'yes' when I am asked to do something.
 she let out a sign and said; I told you that.
But...but I din't realize just HOW real this is. I made 150 euros in June on my blog through writing articles. (**If you are not a full-time blogger, blog money are not a fixed price each month. You can make from 30$ to 200$ depending on the month) It only took 3 articles and 3 days. Three days of researching and writing about something I am passionate about. Three days and 2-3 hours per day. I work a full 8-9 hours every day for a week and made the same money and less. How unfair does this sound?  
It is unfair. I told you that too. Some people work more and get paid even less. You have to experience this yourself. Once you realize it -like you did today- you will be able to get your shit together (she did not say the last part as written here but it was something like; now you know, control your earned money right).

When did you realize the value of your hard earned money? If it was hard earned that is!
If you don't know what I am talking about then BEWARE! The time will come.

Let's talk less grapes and more outfit inpos. I decided to go proper today -minus the red lip- and wore this gorgeous white bow tie blouse. I am in love with everything chiffon. I toughened up the look with this boohoo.com khaki studded skirt I bought in the begging of Summer and had yet to post on an outfit post. This skirt has the 3 things I look for in a skirt. 
A-Lined. High Waist-ed. Studded.

The khaki part is a bonus.

This clutch I made some time ago. I played with 3 different typed/colors of leather. I have yet to add details but the color harmony makes my heart skip.

A chain detail is always needed. Especially when it's gold!
