I'm Moving...

Hello, hello! Forgive me for such lousy job lately - my posts have been missing for a while now. However, I have a good excuse: I'm moving - both physically and my website-wise.
As I mentioned before, I am moving to New York City to start a new job and to enjoy living in the city of my dreams. Since this move is a true moment of starting over, I decided I should start a new website, which will focus more on trying to stay fashionable in business world and on my overall new lifestyle diaries. This is a little sad for me since HotPinkCouture was my first outlet of inspiration, but at the same time I think I'm ready for a change. So please, follow me now on Coffee and Glamour, and I hope you find it interesting, inspirational and fun. You can read the explanation of my new blog's name under the "About" button.
Please remember - you're always welcome to leave comments, as I will take them very seriously to improve my site and to continue/change my trends.
Thank you very much for all your time and support!
I wish you all best of luck!
xoxo Olga

Weekly IDEAS


For four years, ever since I started taking the take to college at Swarthmore, PA station, I have known about Swarthmore College, as it is located right across the road from the station. However, even though I also heard about how beautiful their campus is, I have never actually been there. Today, college students organized a “Trash to Treasure” yard sale, and while we have not found anything there, since we were already there, we decided to walk around the campus given the opportunity. What can I say – it truly is gorgeous! For this week’s Weekly IDEAS I will provide you with some photos we took today at the Swarthmore College. Hope you enjoy!

Weekly IDEAS


With days staying sunny and warm, I am more and more tempted to go to the beach. Even more so, after having gone to Atlantic City last weekend and seeing their new hotel/casino Revel, which really impressed me with its modern décor and variety of entertainment, the temptation is even higher. However, I am a little too busy to go anywhere right now since it’s about time I find an apartment in NYC to be ready to start my new amazing, exciting job in mid-June.  While I can’t necessarily go to the shore, I can still dream, right? That is why I am focusing most of this week’s Weekly IDEAS on snapshots from the hotel taken last week.  Even simply looking at it makes me happy J

Farewell Lunch

Today I had the most wonderful time having my farewell lunch with my sweet ex-coworkers  from the Delaware County Literacy Council. I have known these people almost as much as I have been in the United States, and they truly have become my real family. They were always there for me, supporting me and encouraging me to strive for my goals and dreams to make them come true. It is always sad to leave a place that is so dear to your heart, but I think it is a good thing to leave with sad feelings as it means that you had great time there. Thank you, everyone, so very much for all your kindness, patience, motivation and advice! Thank you for always being there for me, for sharing my achievements and my worries (for every exam, there was a "Oh I don't even know... It was so difficult, I really don't know how I did on this one" scare). Thank you for always hearing me out and finding just the right words to say when I needed it the most. I will always remember you all, as I cannot even describe how much you have contributed to my personal and professional growth and well-being. Thank you!!!

Happy Belated Memorial Day

For this year's Memorial Day my family and friends went to Atlantic City, NJ to lie in the sun and check out The Revel, a new hotel/casino that opened just recently. We had a truly amazing time, having fun on the beach and enjoying a soft ocean breeze. I even got to dance Zumba on the boardwalk! And the hotel is absolutely gorgeous! Definitely staying there some time soon...

Weekly IDEAS


Hello beautiful friends! I know, I have not been very dedicated and productive with my blog lately, but the thing is I just graduated from college, and I am waiting for work to start, so I have this month or so to just relax and not do anything. That is why even though I do feel bad about not doing so much anymore, I do at the same time enjoy not doing anything, recollecting my energy and celebrating receiving my degree and turning 22 years old - all in the short period of one week. This week's Weekly IDEAS contain pieces from different events that have happened during this week. Here they are
