All purpose wall decor

Yesterday it was my birthday. Man, I had so much fun celebrating! We had a lovely family only lunch and headed to Day of Taco celebrations later on! I mean you can not skip city wide celebration and 5 peso tacos on main square just because you have a birthday. I'd even say it feels like the whole city is celebrating my birthday with cheap tacos, lucha libre, mariachis and smiles. And while it provided me with lots of opportunities to make photos and capture the moment, it wasn't all that well. Crowded place are not ideal to make photos and I actually snapped my own outfit a little bit prior the celebration on a more quite (and quant) street. I personally find it very important to snap a picture or two to capture the moment and keep it with you. While I am personally hyper happy to take photos of my taco right before I eat it (and I literally need a second to me it), my own photography and especially photography with my family is not that fast and happy experience. I think most of parents to younger kids (below 1 you mind me) agree that kids tend to be more responsive and happier to take photos in familiar and quite grounds of home. I will share with you my report on that memorable event later on next week. Today though I want to give you some inspiration (because inspiration during the weekends is the best, right?) and share some tricks on how to achieve better looking photos on your special occasions. For example for a birthday.
If you are (unlike me) celebrating it with friends and family at home, you might want to organize a spot to make a memorable photo. It can be anything and definitely can DIY it with things you already have a at hand. Plants, chair and paintings are wonderful props. Also don't forget about 'happy birthday' strings, silly hats and balloons. Everything is easily accessible and cheap at any dollar store or supermarket. And while it definitely looks cute and is budget friendly I would like to offer you a more advanced option you might want to consider investing in. I am talking about backdrops in general and shimmer walls in particular. SO handy and easy to incorporate in your decor. I do think it is a must have. It doesn't ask for much time, easy to redecorate to achieve a different look, it's expandable and easy to store. Today I want to show you more of it on the example of Iridescent Blue Shimmer Wall. I do believe it is a great option to accommodate each and every need.

This set up looks super pretty and very professional too! They added some light on the floor, neon letters to match the occasion and some balloons of matching colors. Looks fantastic right?

Same backdrop, different occasion. No artificail light (which is great for outdoors), different colors od balloons and there you have it! This shimmer wall looks perfect for Easter! Did I convince you yet? If not check out below

Same wall different mood and purpose. Endless possibilities to utilize and create decorations for your special moments. The only limit if your own fantasy really. The most awesome part is that such a wall is very easy to store. Each part is independent so it literally doesn't ask for space to store. Yes, even if you are living in tiny rental, you can afford investment in such a decor piece, no need for a huge attic here.

Do you own a similar piece? Let me know what you think and point out what I have missed!

Have a nice day,

  1. I'm glad you had a fun time out celebrating your birthday! :)

    These look like fun statement decorations for a big party too, thanks for sharing.

  2. I absolutely love the creativity in your all-purpose wall decor ideas! The way you use everyday items like plates and hats to add a personal touch to a room is inspiring. Your attention to detail is remarkable, and I can't wait to try some of these ideas in my own home!

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel

МКММ + Couture Fashion Show

So! I am so very excited! I have visited my first real actual fashion show ever since March and I couldn’t ever be happier. It’s just wow! This time I visited MKMM final shows merged with Couture Fashion Show later that night. I had a chance to see many wonderful shows by young and talented designers and enjoyed it a lot. Creativity everywhere. Something is purely catwalk (and I totally don’t mind it at all), something that is very easy to imagine rushing the streets, something very creative and futuristic and making a statement with so much in between. Overall in love. I don’t think I really can be picky because after all those digital shows real made a huge impression on me. It almost as if I am visiting my first ever fashion show but better because I know what to expect. I think you are not reading this and already scrolled past this point and enjoy the contestants. And don’t blame you at all.  RU: Прекрасные новости! Мой первый настоящий офлайн показ с марта месяца. И он оказася пр


Autumn is everywhere! I love how beautiful and ever-changing it is! Feel so inspired simple looking outside of the window not taking about walking in the park...  In case you're wondering I feel much better now, thanks a lot for everyone of you! I believe it's your positive thinking helped me a lot. This time it was time for knits and feeling cosy. Despite the unmerciful wind this cape made me feel good and cosy. I'd add a scarf to feel warmer but alas I realized that in the park already. And yes, turing back is just not my call. The scenery.... Talking about my outfit... There's a lot I can tell. The shoes I'm wearing are my fall boots, i fail to wear them during spring but always keep wearing it all the way around during fall. Comfy and the color matches the nature too well. My necklace with peacock (thank you oasap for that) is lovely I wanted to wear it a bit often but that was the first time it actually left my apartment. As for my central item
