Per Your Request! :)

Hello Guys!

On my Last post I asked if any of you had any ideas or requests on what you would like us to post about, we had one blogger who asked if we could write a post about how come we live in two different Countries, and just a little story about us two. That blogger is Bjondina you can click on the link to check out her blog. So I`m going to write a brief story-post about it, and we want to thank her for giving us a suggestion on what you would like us to write about. 

we are actually 5 sisters in our family, me and Vlora (the first sister that started this blog with me) are the ones who mostly burn for fashion and style, so we had thought for a long time about starting a blog, where we could post about things that we like, and just general stuff that goes on in our daily life. So we did it! But unfortunately Vlora felt like she didn`t have the time, now with married life and all to blog. Instead since I am blessed with so many sisters 🙂  I went ahead and asked if our youngest sister Mirlinda, who also has a passion for fashion and style if she wanted to join me. And she gladly accepted the offer. 

I had grown up in Sweden, but moved to USA with my husband and lived there for about 6 years together. There was a moment when we wanted to move closer to family and we moved to Sweden. Where my family lives. We spent two wonderful years there, but felt like USA suited us better, so we moved back. Two years later things took another turn in our life and we suddenly were going to move to Albania!!. A huge, unexpected surprise, and change for us, but we were gladly going to jump on the challenge as the excitement was really big for us.(I guess we were so used to moving, so this wasn`t such a big deal. As some people never get to experience moving. For us it has become “normal” you gotta jump on the ride to experience the fun in life).The move was mostly for business purpose, but we were happy because once again we were going to be closer to our families.

As far as Mirlinda`s concern, she was born in Sweden, and still lives there. We have yet to find out where life is going to take her next 😉

I hope this gives you something to read about us and our story. And if you have more ideas or suggestions, please feel free to ask us to write about it. 

XoXo Besa

Care for something sweet?

I photographed this chocolate-truffle box when I was in Napa Valley, it was sold in a shop for $72. I didn`t buy it but I`m sure it tastes just as good as it looks. B.

. The answers to the questions;

What is the thing/activity you love the most?

There are quite a few things that I like to do, like taking long walks on my own which I think help me a lot to just rest my mind and just acknowledge my presence, I like to just observe people, objects and the sky and take it all in everything around me, without judging anything. That helps me learn a lot about my self . And the best thing about it is that if I have a camera with me then I try to capture those moments on picture. That`s where my love for photography comes into picture.

Why did you start your blog?

The main reason is so we could share our ideas about fashion, and our everyday experiences with others. And to connect with other bloggers around the world and hopefully inspire them, and build new friendships.

Mountain or beach? Which one is your favorite?

My personal choice would be Mountains. I love beaches to but I believe you can achieve greater experiences from mountains. They have so much to teach us, all those millions of years of standing still no matter what, nothing can move them. They are jut there for you to enjoy them and support so much wildlife.

What is your motto?

A smile can take you a long way, always keep it with you no matter where you go.

What are you doing at the moment(working, studying, etc)?

At the moment I`m a stay-home mom who is raising two lovely but energetic boys. Within short notice I`m going to be responsible for the administrative part in our family business.

Who is your style icon?

Wow I have many, Jennifer Aniston is one of my favorites from the modern time with her fresh classic and elegant look. Not one time have I seen her in a“wrong” outfit. But from the earlier time Coco Chanel absolutely!! I admire her love for female fashion. Her designs make a woman complete.

Heels or flat shoes?

I love heels absolutely! If I could I`d wear them daily. But unfortunately most of the times I end up wearing flats just because the circumstances require it that way.

Tell us more about your hobbies?

Well as I mentioned earlier, I love photography, when I take photos I always manage to find beauty in everything. I love going out for coffee with friends, I love clothes, spending time with my kids, be outside on a sunny day and spread good energy. Going to different places with my husband and kids. And spend lots and lots of time with people that I love.

Where would you like to go on vacation?

It would have to be to Hawaii, or during Winter to Austria up on the mountains with lots of snow!!

What is your favorite film?

Wow, I am a film lover and have seen so many movies, but when it comes to my favorite one it has to be “The Notebook” such a romantic movie. And “John Q”- with Denzel Washington, which has a great meaning

My weekend!

Wow this weekend has been a busy one. On Saturday, as you have already seen it was my birthday which we ended up celebrating with some family friends/relatives of my husband`s. They are in their 30`s as well and have 3 children. First we made sure the kids would have their dosage of fun by taking them to their favorite playground and afterwards we went to dinner, the whole crew. We went to this restaurant where they serve traditional Albanian food, and wine to accomplish the dinner with :). After that we ended at our place for the cake and they sang the happy birthday song to me and I got to blow a candle and make a wish. It was my birthday after all. Lately I have felt like eating cake is all I have been doing. First my sons B-day, two cakes there, then one for V-day, now one for my birthday.. Today on Sunday, it was Kosovo`s 5th year of independence! Happy independence day to my birth Country!! Yep I am Albanian, born in Kosovo, grew up in Sweden, lived in USA and am now living in Albania, some life journey right? Anyways, so we ended up going out again with the kids and our friends/relatives and had a wonderful early evening dinner. It was just wonderful, we had so much fun chit-chatting and the kids could go outside and play, because the restaurant was at the beach. Another thing that we are celebrating today is my little sister Mirlinda turning 19. So happy B-day darling!!!!! I took a few pictures of some gifts I received  too. Hope you had a lovely weekend too!! Besa
