From the morning buzz of my alarm clock, getting up, running to the bathroom to brush my teeth, doing my make up, eating breakfast, putting on clothes, to pouring a cup of coffee into my travel mug and running to the subway to make it on time to class, each one of my days is filled with a different kind of madness. That craziness is exactly what I need to thrive and grow in one of the most incredible cities in the world, often called the Big Apple.
Hmm, what happened to the Sex and the City version of New York City? Where do the amazing restaurants, fun parties, and pink cosmopolitans come in? Many come to New York in search of exactly that, and tend to leave in a month or two, however, I know, deep in my heart that I am here to stay.
New York has given me something that I was searching for everywhere, and that is INSPIRATION.
My name is Martyna and can confidently say that I love my life. I love seeking inspiration in the world around me. I find that there are countless things that inspire me. From people, to buildings, songs, foods, etc., I try to surround myself with inspiration.
I find that once I feel inspired, I can excel in the things I love. My absolute favorite “thing” is fashion.
Since I was a little girl, I was always intrigued by fashion and how much of an impact it has on society. Come on, as much as you say you “don’t judge people” everyone leaves some kind of an impression on you whether it’s good or bad. I believe that fashion allows us to choose what kind of an impression we would like to leave on someone. It, in a way, allows us to showcase our personalities and what we’re all about through what we decide to put on our bodies.
I think the way we present ourselves to the world each and every single day is very significant. Who wouldn’t want to showcase their very best to the world each and every single day?
To me, fashion isn’t only about clothing. It’s about the full package, starting with hair, make up and moving onto clothes. Fashion is all about the way a person physically decides to express themselves to the world.
Whenever someone asks me about my personal style, I have no concrete answer. Do I really have to choose to be preppy, edgy or even girly and follow that theme every single day? That’s pretty boring if you ask me.
Every morning, in between the craziness of running around my apartment trying to get ready for the day, I always find a few minutes to sit down with a cup of tea in my hand, and think about how I feel that particular day. The way I feel impacts my outfit choice, which definitely sets the mood for my day. I love changing up my style every day and trying new things. I don’t see anything appealing in sticking to the same thing every day.
I’m very excited to give all of you some inside scoop on my life and my personal take on fashion. Living in a big city has definitely helped me expand my horizons and I will aim to help you expand yours. Once you begin to use fashion in order to boost your confidence, you will be unstoppable and that’s exactly what I want to help you all do!
