Do you remember that I complained about FavorDeal because they didn't send my prize? They finally sent my rings after a few months. Of course I'm glad that I received them, but do I order from them? No, sorry. Besides sending the packages very late, the quality is very low. The rings are alloy, yes I know this, but they look like very cheap toys at close range. I've had many alloy rings before, but none of them were like these. Unfortunately, these are the worst :( The edges were cut in a very bad shape. And especially the blue elephant set doesn't resemble the original pictures in the website. I just like the first ring in the pictures; it's good compared to the others.

Greek cuisine, smog and domestic drudgery was not the life Australian musician, Melody, was expecting when she married a Greek music promoter and settled in Athens, Greece. Keen to play in her new shoes, though, Melody trades her guitar for a 'proper' career and her music for motherhood. That is, until she can bear it no longer and plots a return to the stage--and the person she used to be. However, the obstacles she faces along the way are nothing compared to the tragedy that awaits.

My Review:
This is one of the best and most fastmoving books I have ever read. First of all, the language is simple and easy to read. The author did not use very complicated sentences, so it encouraged my desire to read more. As I am a musician, too, String Bridge fascinated me from the very beginning. The author achieves to mingle the reader with the story in a very successful way. For example, I was so pissed when I learned that Melody was cheated by her husband Alex that I was mad at him. Through the end of the book, I was really shocked by the events that occurred; I wasn't expecting the death; I really cried while I was reading those lines. And I felt remorse for my previous anger towards him. I just didn't like the end of the book when she remarries another man years later. If she didn't remarry, Alex and Melody's love would remain divine and magical in my opinion, but of course life is all choices...
PS: She recorded a CD for the book and sent it together; she has beautiful voice, I liked it :)

I Got My New Year Gifts, Yay! :)

This year, we exchanged our gifts with my boyfriend a little earlier :) We already bought our presents, so we didn't want to wait :D As you'll see in the pictures, he bought tons of sets from The Body Shop for me :) They include perfume, body lotion, moisturizing creams, shower gel, lip balm, peeling cream, etc. whatever you look for. It seems that I will feast with skin care products and become more beautiful this year :P
* By the way, the boxes are very beautiful and I already turned the pink one into a jewellery box :)

And I gave him a nice, classical-looking, grey steel cord watch. The wrist part is a little loose, but it can be adjusted, no problem. Also I bought a black elegant beret with beads and stones for my mom, a pair of dark blue home boots for my dad and a sport & classical looking watch for my brother. At the end of the day, I was exhausted due to the shopping craze :D In addition, we had a promo shooting with my music band the next day. So, I started the week in a very tired and sick mode as you understand :P


I won this very special double-heart silver infinity pendant from Elif Gümüş through a local giveaway at İlknur'un Dünyası blog.

I won these cute orange tights through Penti Dilek Ağacı application on Facebook.

I won this very interesting and unique bag from Marcatelli through a local giveaway at Kaliteyi Tanıyalım website.

Sorry, but I think Rafflecopter seems the best despite all the bad things I experienced. I tried another form called PromoSimple, but it's even worse :( My readers cannot enter my last giveaway via this form, so I also put the option for Rafflecopter, you can also enter there. I will chose one winner from PromoSimple, and two winners from Rafflecopter. Sorry for that :(


I see that no one has entered my recent giveaway for aMiniDeal (just 12 people), where you can purchase jewelry or clothing with a $15.00 voucher; the prices are very low, come on! I switched from Rafflecopter to another form (Promo Simple) because you wanted, but the participation is too low because of this :( Please enter, or I may have to cancel the giveaway.

My Recent Shopping :)

Again, I wanted to get benefit of some Romwe discount coupons and here's what I ordered!

I ordered this cut-out detailing green blouse for my mom during the Halloween sale. It has a very soft-looking and nice color. Of course, this must be worn with a body inside as it is transparent.

This batwing sleeves loose style grey t-shirt is for me. I already wore it twice. It's comfortable, soft and looks great with a long-sleeve body under.

I always love black, so I ordered this anomalous cut black t-shirt during the Halloween sale. I didn't want to miss the chance :)

I won a $30 coupon from Romwe, and I combined it with my discount code and I ordered this PU panelled black peach skin coat. I thought it was thicker, but it is much more suitable for autumn, not winter. Cool style ;)


I won a $30 coupon from Chicnova through a local giveaway at Era Uma Vez blog and I chose these beauties. A black leather brim beret and a black wide leather bracelet with pin buckle detail. I love black, yay! :D

The Ways to Wear Sarong

First of all, let me ask you; do you know what sarong is? It is a kind of traditional cloth worn by mostly women (men can wear it too) in many warm countries around the world as a skirt, dress, waist cloth or anything else. But in this post, I'll show you some examples of sarongs for women.

Sarongs can function in many ways and can have various styles & patterns & colors. In my opinion, they are somehow an exotic clothing. They look very lightweight and comfortable, too. I don't know what you'd do, but I'd wear them especially on seaside during summer to protect my legs.

By the way, you don't need to wear sarongs just as clothing. You can also use them as headscarf, shawl, belt or even tablecloth! They are multi-functional ;)

Today, I'd like to introduce you another great store, which is called "". They sent me a winter cord belt hooded waistcoat ($45.81 value) and also a punk gothic Korean stylish trendy ear stud earrings ($2.78 value) as a gift. It's been a nice surprise, because I'm the singer of a Turkish gothic metal band as most of you know :)

This ear cuff (for single ear), which is in dragon shape, is quite comfortable and stylish as well as unique, but for small ears though (my ears are very small). If you have large ears, it may not suit you well. However, it's a great piece for people who want to make a difference.

The waistcoat is soooo soft and cosy! I like the feeling of touching it :) It's very light, but it keeps you very warm, so it's ideal for the cold weather of winter season. It doesn't have any button or zip, however it is tied with a cord from the waist. So you can either use it as open or tied. The waistcoat has two pockets and they are practical to put your money or cell phone. It looks great over a pair of jeans or leggings with knee-high boots. This is just my style! It is in average size and also has beige and white colors on the website.
PS: I have to tell you that the tassles at the two ends of the cord fell off, but it's not very important for me as I can still tie the waistcoat. Nevertheless, the beads of the cord are on place.

*** REVIEW: Christmas Floral Centerpiece ***

Today I received these beautiful flowers from and I immediately adored them. They smell very nice and the decoration is awesome. The flowers were placed in a glass container filled with white pebbles and decorated with red beads, ribbons and white candles which exactly reflect the soul of Christmas. And they arrived in just 2 days! I wasn't expecting it so fast that I thought a secret admirer sent them :P I really love that I can continue using the container and pebbles and the decoration items after the flowers are dead. I placed this Christmas table centerpiece on our end table in our living room. It refreshed the atmosphere inside :)
