Finding my Confidence

It's hard to love yourself and be confident when you're constantly wishing to change something about yourself. I've gone through periods where I'm super confident, but it's challenging to always fluctuate, especially when you're the kind of person that overanalyzes everything. 

I've postponed creating a blog and a Youtube channel because of what others might think, how they might criticize me or laugh at me. I was worried if anyone would read and watch. Sometimes these feelings still come up. Rather than pushing them down, I acknowledge them and try to solve the deeper problem, which is my confidence. 

There are a few things that have helped over the years and that are still helping me to this day. Hopefully when you're having a bad day you can realize you also have all of these in your life, or at least some. 

Have a pink-tastic day!

Wardrobe Declutter | Carina Vardie

That I love to shop comes as no surprise, but that also means I sometimes go overboard and accumulate more than I actually need or wear. The day of the declutter finally came and in the spirit of laughing at myself a bit, I filmed the whole process. 

The guide lines were quite easy. Anything I haven't worn in a year would go out, except special occasions dresses or jumpsuits because of course those can't be worn on the daily. The other rule/purpose was to get rid of poor quality items, anything too plasticky had to go. 

If you're curious to see how much I kept and gave away, click the video below. Please subscribe and give it a thumbs up!

Golden Mermaid at Sunset


When visiting one of the most beautiful islands, experiencing the sunrise and sunset on the beach is a must. The golden light caresses your skin and hair, making you look like a Goddess and the scenery is breathtaking. The sun reflecting in the water while it's going down, takes your breath away, making you wonder how such a beauty is possible. The fresh water strokes your feet as you walk through the sand and the salty smell in air awakens a strong wish to be a mermaid enjoying the beauty of the sea every day. 

What outfit is better fit for a mermaid than a high low mint green dress? The train floats as the wind blows and hugs your body in all the right places. The flowing fit makes you feel free and cheerful. The mellow sun shine also hit my highlighter making me, again, look like a Goddess.

Have a pink-tastic day!

Off Shoulder Stripes in Paradise

Have you ever noticed how consciously or unconsciously all of us fashion lovers always wear a striped outfit on vacation? Stripes embody summer fashion and the beach. When I think of stripes two inspirations come in mind: either sea vibes or Parisian ones, which is why I will always wear such an outfit for the two. That doesn't mean I only wear stripes on vacation and in Paris, it's just the mind frame it gets me in. The stripes trend makes a comeback every spring and summer, be it in the classic nautical colors or 70s inspired ones. They are versatile and add something extra to an outfit. 

Ruffles have also made a comeback. They've been around since the 16th century flattering our silhouettes and romanticizing any look. I've been a fan for years now, even before they became a trend and they look especially chic in an off shoulder silhouette and in a striped pattern. While my outfit may seem simplistic, it's very well thought and incorporates all these spectacular elements I adore. 

What do you think?
