Oh my Blush!

Hello Everyone and happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far?

Today I would like to take the opportunity to talk about two of my favorite makeup products:

  • Maybelline Babylips Balm & Blush # 01 Innocent Peach;
  • Rimmel Kate Moss Anniversary Lipstick Rock’n Roll Nude # 54.

I am not a huge fan of foundation or wearing a lot of make up in general. My daily make up consists of blush (or bronzer for the summer), liner, mascara and lipstick.

I think most women skip blusher because it can be quite a scary product. It can be difficult to know what colour to go for, where to put it and how to apply it.

So why wear blusher? What is it for? Well, blusher can literally be the difference between looking healthy or not.

I don’t think blusher should match eye makeup or lipstick. It’s about complementing your makeup but mostly about brightening your complexion. The trick is to choose shades that are in the same colour family without being too matchy, and you can do this by choosing products that have the same undertone (warm undertone vs. cool undertone).

I personally prefer a cream blush. The shinier and glowier the skin, the better! So, here are some tips for wearing cream blush that will make it your new best friend, regardless of your skin type. Because not only is cream blush actually easier to use than you may think it is, but it can also improve your makeup game.

Your fingers are the perfect tool for applying cream products. Start with just a little bit of product, and layer it up to your desired intensity. The best part about cream blush? Just tap the same blush you used on your cheeks onto your lips for a perfect match!

Every woman needs an amazing nude lipstick in her makeup bag – an easy, go to, “your-lips-but-better” color which works for day or even evening. I’ve always loved a nude lip.

Nude lipsticks have been around for quite sometime. I think nude lips look great with smoky eyes and it is a look that I will never get tired of.

So, these are my two favorites for this spring. Please feel free to email me with any questions!

Leopard print to the office? Yes!

Hello Everyone and happy Sunday! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

In the last few years, leopard print has really moved on to a whole new level. This wild print is nothing to be afraid of and, done right, looks super-chic.

But it’s one thing to rock this animal print when you are out on the town with the girls, but can you pull it off in the workplace? Yes. Leopard print is one of the boldest animal prints a woman can wear to the office. You don’t have to avoid it. Let’s take for example this pretty blouse from Only. If you want to make it the focal point of your outfit, just  keep the color combo simple with soothing neutrals  such as nudes, browns, black, dark navy blues and olive greens. Keep everything else you’re wearing simple to avoid creating too many distractions.

Retro Vibe

Good morning Everyone and happy Monday! I just wanted to say al quick hello and share a few new pictures. 

For today’s look I choose for a vintage inspired look wearing this gorgeous and uber feminine A-line Expresso dress. I’m a big fan of color blocking, I think it’s a great way to add interest to a simple design. It’s also a fun way to play with color. To finish the look I paired my dress with big black sunglasses, over the knee boots and a fake fur stole.

If you love bright colors, stripes, polka dots and retro silhouettes please take a look at the Laura Biagiotti | Spring Summer 2017 Fashion Show. I just love it! 

What about you guys, what do you think about the retro look? 

P.S.: Happy Valentine’s Day (tomorrow)!

Fringe love

Happy Sunday, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! I just wanted to say hi and share a few new images from my last outfit.

When I saw this shaggy  H&M fringe cardigan on the website, I couldn’t check out quick enough! It looks like a million bucks (but only € 15 on the sales!) and has that oversized fit I love.  I think that wool is the perfect fabric to accomplish that cozy effect I was looking for; even more by adding the fringes to the look.

Looks

Bright Green Bag

 

Good morning and happy Monday, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Saying a quick hello and sharing a few images of some of my current obsessions! Jogger pants are cute, flirty, and comfortable. But like all clothing, not everything will match your body type or personal style. So, before you buy a pair, take yourself to a department store to try on a couple of pairs in neutral colors. Pick materials such as leather, satin, or cotton. Heels will add a more stylish flare and will elongate your legs, which is helpful when most jogger pants tend to shorten the wearer.  

 

I fell in love with the vibrant green color of this beautiful Banana Republic bag from the moment I saw it. I realized that bright green adds a nice dose of color to my predominantly black outfits. What do you guys think? How do you feel about bright accesories?

The Biker Coat

Good morning Everyone and happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

If there’s anything I’m loyal to in life, it must be warm, fluffy outerwear – a part of my daily uniform that gets me in the mood to go out and face the cold winter months. The biker teddy coat I’m wearing today manage to give any outfit an unexpected twist and edge and at the same time make you look cute and cozy.

I paired the coat with a Nordic  sweater and black mini skirt and decided to have some fun with my shoes. I love my new Lost Ink loafers because of the soft and light muffin bottom and the pretty bows. These are definitely winners for me! To complete the look and bring a pop of color, I went for bright lips and handbag.

The coated denim

Good morning Everyone and happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far?

 I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of my latest obsession, this silver coated H&M denim. I think streamlined & sleek, lacquered denim is the easiest way to add a luxe, polished touch to your wardrobe without sacrificing comfort. You can make your pair work appropriate by wearing them with a relaxed button up or a smart, tailored jacket. Add a structured pretty bag and a smart pair of heels for a look you can take from office to street.
