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 …

My Favourite Summer Nail Polishes

Earlier this week I went back to my parent’s house for university’s summer break so I had to pack all my stuff including my nail polishes. As you can see I went a little bit crazy while packing so I picked up only eight nail polishes and they are basically all the shades I tend to use lately. Isn’t that an excuse good enough for a nail polishes’ summer selection? Essie Nail Lacquer in Lacquered up and Capri | Essie  has been my favourite nail polishes brand so far. These two shades, in particular, are bright orange-y toned and they don’t contain any shimmer in them, they dry very quick and last five day without chipping. Formula X Nail Color in Outrageous and Unmistakable | I recently discovered this brand thanks to one of my favourite youtubers, Estée on essiebutton. These are the only two shades I own but they are both incredible. They dry instantly and you don’t need to use a top coat. Dior Diorlisse in 500 Pink Petal and Vernis in 483 Pink Kimono | These …

Zara haul

In the past two months I’ve had some special events and -of course- I needed new clothes. Also I have been loving the last Zara collection so it happened that I made a big splurge in there. 1. Oversized denim vest – 39.95 EUR | I own slighlty oversized shirts and blazers but they are usually quite minimalist. Following the new grunge wave, I decided to go for this extremely oversized vest – especially for my tiny figure – and  every time like it makes me feel like I am living in the 90’s. 2. T-shirt with pocket – 19.95 EUR | Who doesn’t need a good white T-shirt? I am quite demanding when it comes to T-shirts because I feel like they have to be soft on the skin, not too stiff or see-through and this one has all the requirements. 3. Wide trousers with belt – 59.95 EUR | I bought these pants for a job interview and I paired them with a white silky top. I am not as tall as the model and, despite it’s a con most of the times, in this …
