Time has come to make things right

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed is here in my arms…


My biggest dream came true a week ago. I not simply visited London, I MOVED IN. I still cannot find words to describe how happy I am. Words are very unnecessary…

IT & Technology, Personal entries

Today I visited Infogr.am office in Old Town Riga for our Riga TechGirls team meet-up.
Just look at this amazing view from the balcony!6F744F72-3222-4808-A247-A69F3C3E2CC5.jpg
Also wanted to say that it’s such an inspiration to work in a community with such amazing people, with whom you share the vision and want to inspire and motivate other girls and women to educate themselves in IT and maybe even step into technology fields. Most important, women should be brave, motivated, curious, and ready to do something new and awesome!
If this seems close to you and your vision, you can find more information about our community, events and workshops on FacebookInstagram or Twitter. Cheers!

Eau de Gaga

Makeup & Skincare

Eau de Gaga is my most favorite perfume in the whole world ❤ I am sooo addicted that it’s already mine third bottle since it has been launched. I even was hysterically searching for a place to buy new when my first one suddenly ended up before a date, as I can’t imagine myself without this aroma😂#girlproblems


Speaking of perfume in general, I don’t like “girlish” aroma. I prefer heavy scents, something reminding of whiskey and cigarettes, of black suits and leather boots.

And what is your favorite perfume or scent?

Bridesmaid’s look

Personal entries, Photosessions, Travelling

Finally received photographs from Ju&Max Wedding ❤
As I already had a blog post about this lovely day, I decided to dedicate this mainly photographic post to my look for the wedding. In a nutshell, the idea was to create the look close to my ideal bride’s appearance. You know, I’m not an ordinary girl and I need everything to be creative, original and stylish as much as possible 😀 I will not share my dream dress here – who knows, maybe my future husband is reading this blog entry right now, but it’s a bad luck for a groom to see the wedding dress before the Big day 😀
So, let me present you Nirika the bridesmaid:ART_0866
