Back to Basics – Fashion Haul

As you may have noticed from my last post I have done a bit of shopping in the past weeks and it didn’t stop with beauty and make-up. When I go shopping I am usually very instinctive and I end up buying eccentric items forgetting about the basics therefore I took advantage of the sales for buying basic clothes. Firstly, I decided to do some online shopping on Asos because I didn’t find anything interesting on physics shops. I read on internet people praising about Ridley High Waist Ultra Skinny Jeans so I bought a pair of black ones in Petite. I am a quite short girl so it’s difficult for me to find jeans or pants that fit me good without shortening them and the Petite lines that some brands as Topshop or Asos do are life saviour. Also, I chose Kimmi Shrunken Boyfriend Jeans in mid wash vintage and a Soft Casual Shirt in blue. The two jeans have a completely different fit but I love both: Ridley jeans wrap my legs perfectly …

New Year, New Beauty Haul

Happy 2015 everyone! In fact, even if it is already mid January and I had some days off to work this is the first blog post of the year. Despite my Christmas holidays have been relaxing – ehm, boring – and sickly and then I had a hectic return to work I found the time for doing some birthday/christmassy shopping anyway. But, even though I bought most of these items during the sales, I ended up buying items not on sale. For what concerns skincare, I have a very sensitive skin and sometimes it tends to have acne. Currently my skin it’s not that problematic – also thanks to Braun Face – so I decided to try a clarifying serum to even out my complexion. I bought the Kiehl’s Clearly Correcting Dark Spot Solution paired with the Ultra Light UV Defense Moisturizer. Even if it’s too early to look for results at the moment I can say that I quite like how these products feel on my skin. Also because of my kinda flawless skin period …

Put a (tiny) ring on it

I do love statement rings and necklaces but on a daily basis I wear a lot of sober accessories, that kind you never get tired of. In the past two years starting from fashion bloggers everyone has been wearing tiny jewelry and a lot of brands came out with these types of products. However according to my experience it’s hard to find  cute fine jewelry that aren’t quite expensive so I thought to share some affordable brands to look for. For what concerns watches, mine is from Casio which has a dark-brown leather watchband and  tiny golden case and it’s a smaller and cheaper alternative to the Daniel Wellington watches, that I personally adore. First of all, I discovered Aristocrazy, a spanish brand who has both economic and expensive items -my necklace is from Aristocrazy –  but the real revelation happened when I found out about & Other Stories. All the earrings, rings and bracelet in photos come from the Swedish brand and it has a large selection that you won’t be disappointed. Do you know any …

You Can Leave Your Hat On

If you usually stroll on Internet you may have noticed that the world has been affected by a fedora mania. There is always a type of hat on trend: we had bowler hats then beanies but I definitely prefer the most recent one because of the rock vibe a fedora hat can give to every outfit. I have seen lots of celebrities, bloggers or singers males and females wearing fedoras according to their styles and no matter if you want to wear it on the beach or during a rainy day because there will be a type that matches your needs. I put my hands on two black fedoras in the past months and I’ve been searching for a white version but I didn’t find one I liked enough that wasn’t extremely expensive. Don’t worry my research won’t stop until I will find it – I am scary, I know. If you want to buy a fedora but you can’t do a splurge with a Borsalino then Asos, Topshop,  Urban Outfitters and H&M have great substitutes. Oh, …
