July moodboard

July has always felt almost like the end of the summer to me – the weather in Lithuania and Scotland would usually be very unstable and this summer month was rarely ever a guaranteed four weeks of good weather and heat for me. Last year, we were counting the good days on our fingers because…

Pardon my French – the struggles of learning a language

If you’ve spent time learning a foreign language, you will know the struggle that comes with trying to actually have a full conversation without at some point feeling like a fool. We all know that fear of forgetting a word, saying something completely grammatically wrong or looking outright stupid. While most of that fear is…

It’s been 7 months since I moved to Paris

Back in high school, I had this dream of one day living in France. I was learning the language, I was really good at it, I loved art and studying the wonderful artists who flooded to this amazing country in search for inspiration and luck, I even searched for universities to apply to there.

Being a creative in the digital world

A few weeks ago I was approached by Larissa, a Boston-based founder of a beautiful platform called Old Soul Wednesdays.

A week in Lyon: city guide

After moving to France end of last October, along with 55kg of luggage, I was met with strange excitement, the joy of being reunited with my boyfriend and an anxious butterflies-in-your-stomach kind of feeling. I was in France. However, not having found an apartment yet, we dropped off our luggage, spent a night in Paris…

March list

I did say last month that February is sneaky and quick, and here we are, it’s already March! After a few months of cold and even the unusual snowfall in Paris, I am so ready for some warmth! It was, however, fantastic to witness the unwavering French spirit – even with the low February temperatures,…
