Seoul, South Korea
So happy to show you the photos from the 4th day in Seoul. This day was special since we got to explore the 북촌한옥마을 a.k.a Bukchon Hanok Village. It's the historical town located in the heart of Seoul. The most awesome thing about this place I think is that people can live there and therefore quickly get in touch with the Korean culture and history, which is so important, if you want to know the country better. The town is super awesome, very peaceful and quite and perfect if you want to relax from the busy hectic city atmosphere. I really enjoyed today and made a lot of photos for you to see. Take a look.
Seoul, South Korea
On my second day in South Korea I together with my sister decided to explore it a bit more. Our plan included lots of eating and shopping today, so therefore we decided to visit or more like we happened to visit Namdaemun market and the shopping district Myeongdong.
The first object, I may say is suitable for those, who would like to get a taste of cultural and historical side of Korea. The market itself dates back to the XV century, therefore it's a rich historical heritage which also can offer a big range of goodies, from food to domestic thingies. I don't necesarrily shop in markets, but I love to visit them, since it does tell a lot about the country. Myeongdong, on the other hand is full of youth and modernism. Music, make up stores and street food are the key words here. You go around, have some snacks from the street vendors and go around the make up shops. There are a lot of them, side by side next to each other. It's crazy, it's super cool.
Seoul, South Korea
So here is the 1st day in Korea, which I got to spend in Seoul in one awesome region Hongdae. The streets of Hongdae are boiling with people and shops and cafes. There are so many things to see and to do. I must admit, though, I have underwent quite a huge culture shock. For me those sights and sounds are quite unusual and even shocking, but not in a bad way. I love it here! The people, the food, everything! Visiting Korea has been one of my lifetime goals and one of the biggest dreams and now that I am here, I can assure, that this is exactly where I want to be.
On the first day here, we done a little shopping and had so called kimchi pancake for dinner,, this is something you should definitely try, when visiting Korea.
Today as some of you may already have guessed, I got to spend 24 hours in either planes or the airports. Yes, my long awaited dream has finally come true, I flew all the way to South Korea! Starting with the flight to Helsinki from Vilnius and then, after a short layover moved straight to my lovelies place - Korea!
I won't go into the details a lot in this post, as I have a lot to tell in the coming ones.
For today, just check some photos I took in the Helsinki airport:) Perhaps some of you were struggling with your airport looks? Well, not anymore. Stylish and super comfy look is here to give you some ideas, guys!
So maybe you have already seen it, maybe you missed it, the super hot extra issue of Happy365 magazine called Pliažo knyga (eng. beach book) is out. The issue itself is super awesome and relevant if you're not planning to go anywhere this summer, but rather spend your summer holidays here in Lithuania. You can find there many awesome interviews (including ours) and many recommended places for you to go to, or things you can do or see in the biggest cities in Lithuania. We were representing our hometown, the city of Kaunas. Small, but lovely Kaunas has a lot of surprises for you here, just come and see for yourself, you will be rather surprised. One of the places that is awesome to check, but is usually left forgotten is this old, but rather cool aerodrome museum which was our shooting location for the magazine! I am not going to get further into the details, if you're in Lithuania and the magazine is easily accessible to you, I recommend you to get it and if you're not from Lithuania, well, here are some shot's for you to see!:)
If you follow either my instagram account or that of snapchat you probably got to see some shots of our latest editorial "Squeeze me" by Wear mad by July (http://www.madbyjuly.com/)
This awesome, bright and colourful shooting was so far the most unique and fun of what I have got to do so far.
For the first time I got to wear this pink mermaid hair wig and those awesome bright combos made out of linen. So cool and so refreshing at the same time.
Cannot forget the amazing team, which I got to work with! You can read about it in Lithuanian people magaine Žmones (see in the article right here) in Alfa.lt
Do you know that feeling when sometimes you're obsessing with something since early morning, maybe you got that from the dream, you dreamed last night, huh doesn't really matter. But the thing is that, that precise thing that you tend to obsess about lately just inspires you in some silly ways. For instance, I am kind of inspired by the Camille Rowe and her effortless Parisian looks that it just makes me don't brush my hair, pull out my oldie striped sweater and just grab a pair of my favorite loose indigo jeans and voila, ready to go out. Pretty effortless, right? I must say, it's super cozy too, especially for those rainy, cooler summer days, when all you need to do is head to some cozy coffee place, grab a cup of cappuccino and read, read, read.
To make things clear, I would like to point out that the girl in the video is not me but my sister Laura Macij. You can check her blog and maybe discover something new and different from my blog, although I highly doubt it. Because we work mostly together, we tend to take photos of our looks in the same places, corners, therefore our photos are beyond similar, everything is the same, except for the outfits. So it happened that we again were shooting for Deichmann trendblog, which we both write and so it is that I wanted to share this cool video here with you guys.
Currently I am working with my youtube page and trying to make it better so wait for some news, there are a lot of things that I am working on right now! :)
And about the video.. Just trying to introduce the choker trend to our little Lithuanian fashion community and other girls who love to dress nice and are interested about what's big and what's meeh.
You can find full article here and also check the video! Don't forget to leave the feedback in the comments below. See you.
I know I know, here may be a little too much photo for such a mini article, but hey, let me brag a bit. I still cannot take my eyes off of the latest editorial for SQUEEZE ME summer collection by Wear mad by July! Recently here has been an article published in the latest July issue of Lithuanian magazine People (lith. Žmonės). So if you're Lithuanian, hurry up and buy it while it's still in shelves, if not, do not worry the editorial photos of the collection will soon be published on my blog with full credits and more info about the whole thing! Stay tuned.
How is it going guys? Have you been doing well? I was super busy at the moment as I had to shoot so many looks lately, but I think that this hyper active blogging lifestyle is beyond my favorite. I have so many looks and other things to show you yet!
I was supposed to publish this on Monday, however, the amount of articles is pressuring me to do so today, what is more, I am more than happy to end my week with one of my favorite looks from our shooting for Claire a.k.a clairewoman.dk

I hope that you too enjoyed the series and this lookbook will eventually become your guide to creating your ideal woman's look that would make your summer more special and remarkable.

We are coming to an end with my Claire look series. One more outfit is to be expected in a couple of days, so wait for it. And as I have already introduced to you what Claire is and I even started to post the sequence of looks one after another to show you what kind of styles and clothes Claire can offer you. If you follow my blog regularly, you could have already seen the feminine, the elegant, and even the comfy one, suitable for traveling. Now I feel like it's time to move on to the next one which is all perfect for hard working, business women who got to spend their time at the office. The ones who like the smart look, but are not necessarily the office kind of person my like this one too. Take me, for instance, I don't get to sit at office rooms very often but this style, like many other does appeal to me.
The best part of it I think it's fabric which makes the garment worth buying.If you like this look and may one to check it with your own eyes, feel free to visit Claire in Vilnius, Europe PC department store (II floor).
And here you go, the third look by Claire!
