Golden Glow

Hi everyone!

Klaudia with you again! , with another  look from one of Laura's and my fave fashion brands!...Bebe!
If you saw my last blog it was all about Grey! This one is basically all about gold! , and again is 'head to toe' Bebe!
You can't really go wrong with gold when it comes to this time of the year! And I'm totally in love with this gold print dress! It's well above the knee, so its simply perfect to rock for a night out or a Christmas party.
For my accessories i styled with gold! ( why not!) I wore these sexy gold platforms and i also had this lovely detailed box shape clutch! Everything matched up perfectly.

Wishing you all a fantastic festive season!

Love,

Grey on Grey

Hi everyone! 

It's Klaudia here ( Laura's twin sister) and today I am taking over her blog, and I am happy to share with you this cute sophisticated Bebe look.

This head to toe Bebe look is all about grey.
Some people might associate grey with being a little dull and boring, but I disagree! I am so in love with this amazing  trouser suit! It's so perfect for a business meeting! The fitted top gives it a sexy feel and the pants are format yet fashionable!
To compliment the black piping detail on the top , I added in some simple yet stylish black accessories, also from Bebe. This super cute bag and some black pointy pumps! I totally loved the whole look! Hope you will too!

Love
Klaudia xxxxx

Beaded Bebe

Hi everyone!

I'm a huge fan of the recent fashion styles with embroidery and attention to detail! This gorgeous dress from Bebe is a piece of art!, with it's stunning design and I just love the black and white theme! It has that 'Balmain' feel to it, but for a much better price! which is always a better option right!? ;)
For my accessories I chose this really cute silver clutch and black pep toe heels! I love this look for a glamours night out, but it's also super ideal for the holiday season or for New Years Eve!

OOTD - Fashion Forward Day 1

 Hi everyone!
Here's my outfit of the day, that I wore for the first day of Fashion Forward! I went with this really stylish body suit from The Kript. I love this kind of strappy style recently! I matched the top with my new sandals from Schutz. To keep it simple I wore a bandage nude pencil skirt, but you can wear it with any coloured skirt or pants, basically endless possibilities!

Denim & Gold

Hi everyone! 
 
Quite a while ago I visited this beautiful desert resort, called Bab Al - Shams and here's what I wore!
I don't wear shorts that often in Dubai!, but for a desert trip I decided to pop some on! why not! These ones are from The Kript, and I love the ombre effect they have! It matched up perfectly with my denim top from Zara!
For my accessories, I went with a gold theme! I recently got these cute gold wedges and I'm totally in love them! They are so comfy! It was quite difficult to find a perfect pair of wedges I must say!

Friday Fragrance - Vince Camuto Bella

Hi everyone! 

Pretty bottle = pretty smell that's how I would describe this lovely fragrance! This is one of the newest editions to my collection and I'm obsessed! 
I would say this perfume is juicy and very delightful! I'ts so sweet and it slightly reminds me of 'Viva la Juicy' by Juicy Couture!, but I like this one a lot more! 
The main note of this perfume is Bergamot, middle notes are nectarine blossom and jasmine. Base note is white amber, which gives this warm and seductive feel.    
I must say the bottle would have sold me alone!!, but it's contents are even better! It's so girly and fresh, very tropical! I would definitely take this on holiday with me!  The longevity of it, is pretty good and it contains 100ml! so it's perfect! and who wouldn't want that on their vanity table! it's too beautiful!!

Favourite Hand Cream

Hi everyone!

L'occitane has been one of my favourite brands recently, especially for body care! 
I must say I'm a little bit behind, because I've only just discovered this amazing hand cream! Well more like I just fell in love with it! I saw it everywhere and I know everyone was taking about it, but when I smelt it in store it wasn't for me! Ok! so I got the Amande one which is the almond smell, and it is my 'must have' beauty product!
I love the fact that it doesn't leave your hands greasy and it just smells so lovely. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I truly love it! I got a few other flavours like Roses and Cherry which are also amazing! There is something there for everyone! They also have perfect small sizes for your handbag and it's really great to have for flying! If you haven't tried it yet I highly recommend it!

I've had a thing for cape blazers for a long time now! I always wanted to get one! I think they are super stylish and cute! Well recently I visited Thailand and I found a perfect cape blazer! It's so different! I absolutely love the design.

For this look I went with jeans for more of a casual feel!

Hi everyone!

I've been liking grey colour recently! I got this very classy top from Lipsy a while ago, which has that lovely lace detail and silky material making it very versatile to wear from day to night! It's so pretty! 
Here I paired it with some plain grey jeans, but I can also wear it with a classy pencil skirt! I'm also wearing my new strappy heels that are super comfy, perfect for a long day.

PVC Persuasion

Hi everyone!

It's not often I wear PVC! - but there's always an exception to every rule! and here it is! I was just captivated by this PVC dress and it matched perfectly with my make up look on that day! - so I decided to show it on my blog! Maybe not the ideal choice of material for a hot day!, but great for a night out!  I matched it up with my gun clutch and my pointy black Louboutins to keep the theme 'dark and dangerous' ;)

Whiteout!

Hi everyone!

It was my birthday recently and this is the outfit I wore during the day, when I visited the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Island here in Dubai! 

I went for a full on white look as it's one of my favourites! It just looks super fresh and clean! I got this amazing mesh style little jacket from Milly, so I decided to pair it up with my white palazzo trousers! Since it was an all white look I went with my trusty white bag from Karen Millen. To complete the look I went for neutral heels!

Friday Fragrance - Introducing L'Occitane Oud & Rose

Hi everyone!

This is a special edition of my 'Friday Fragrance' feature on my blog!, as recently I had the pleasure of doing a campaign shoot with L'Occitane as they launched their wonderful new fragrance 'Oud & Rose' into the Middle East. I've always loved and talked about L'Occitance products in the past, both on my blog and social media and so I was really delighted to be involved in this project.

This fragrance truly 'shouts' luxury and opulence, it has a very warm, quite woody scent. It's really classy and quite mesmerizing I would say! I love it! It's also quite sweet, but spicy at the same time which I really adore. 
The main note of this perfume is Peony and Bergamot, middle notes are Grasse Rose and Cedar. Base notes are Patchouli Leaf, Agarwood and Vanilla. 
The essence of this perfume is to unite two regions of the world which are famous for and have a long history and tradition of perfumery : Arabic and French! This perfume combines stylishly French traditions with Arabic opulence. I would certainly recommend you try it out!

Out Of The Blue

Hi everyone! 

I couldn't wait to show you this outfit! - this totally stunning matching top and skirt from the talented designers at Aavva Fashion! The beautifully decorated matching pieces were 'made to measure' for me and I wore this outfit for the recent Harvey Nichols fashion show here in Dubai.
My accessories to compliment this lovely blue, were basically neutral! - my gun clutch (that I'm obsessed with at the moment!) and my rose gold Stuart Weitzman's! Oh and if you look closely you may notice that I have swarovski earrings in some of the pictures, but not in others! Reason being I took them off between photos and forgot to put back!

Red Ruffle

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I attended the Bloomingdales Autumn / Winter fashion show here in Dubai and this is what I wore!
I'm wearing this super cute crop top and skirt from Milly, one of my favourite brands when it comes to bold and statement outfits! Ever since I moved to Dubai I always visit their shop (in Dubai mall).

I don't own that many red clothing items and this crop is just adorable, so I had to have it! It's actually available in black too! For this look I also wore this trendy white pencil skirt, which I'm obsessed with! and of course nude accessories!, as you can never go wrong with them!

Cape Moment

Hi everyone!

I love my bright colours, but I also really love my neutrals! This outfit is a great example of how neutral shades can be so perfect for a day time look! I also really love wearing jackets over my shoulders (cape style!) and here I've got one of my fave River Island blazers casually 'slung over my shoulders'. I combined that with another of my crop tops from The Kript and this gorgeously pale mint colour pencil skirt from H&M. 'Heel-wise' I wore these cute and comfortable sandals, also from River Island, which I haven't worn in a while!

Selfie Swag

Hi everyone! 

My style is not usually 'sporty', but more girly and classy I would say!, but from time to time I love to go out in the day wearing something a lot more casual and 'street' and this look I'm showing you today is, I guess, a good example of that! (even If I am still wearing heels!!)
I got this really cool 'selfie' logo baseball caps from a friend of mine's (Sitora Banu) range and I paired this up with a yellow vest from Zara (I have these in just about every colour!) and one of my 'aerated' pairs of jeans from The Kript!
I wore this for a day at the mall and just a generally casual hot summer day out here in Dubai!

White Wings

Hi everyone!

Here's a very classy and girly look I wore a while ago. I'm in love with this statement top from Poca and Poca. Every time I wear it I feel like I'm about to take off and fly away with those puffy sleeves! It's so cute! I also wore one of my fave Bebe pencil skirts and my trusty Stuart Weitzman's

Summer Nights

Hi everyone!


I'm in love with this summer dress from the Kript! It's super short and sexy, and it has that lovely print at the bottom which makes it the perfect summer dress! Ideal for a night out! I paired it with a blue bag for that pop of colour and some nude pumps!

Torn Temptation

Hi everyone!

Here's a 'street' look I wore a few days ago! I got these amazing ripped up black jeans from The Kript and it's the first time I've had black ripped jeans! I paired them up with a black crop top also from The Kript and my very handy and versatile black vest from Bebe! I thought my River Island heels matched up pretty well with this look, so I wore those! and of course my 'gun' bag is an absolute 'must' for this kind of 'edgy' street look!

Black Bebe

Hi everyone!

On Wednesday I attended the re-opening of the revamped and upgraded Bebe store in Dubai Mall and for the event I was suitably wearing this gorgeous beaded bra top and a sleek bandage style pencil skirt from their new collection! I just loved the fit and the look of these two pieces together! In fact I was totally 'Bebe' with a lovely embellished clutch together with black peep-toe platforms and a stylish necklace, as my accessories! 
Earlier in the day I'd checked out all the new collection pieces in the store and whilst these were my faves to wear for the evening event and a dinner I went to afterwards, I liked so many outfits! this dress ->
HERE in particular, which is so perfect for a night out! I think my sister and I might get it for our birthday next month!

It was a really fun day and evening! and if you haven't already, I would recommend that you go and check out the new Bebe store soon!

Bebe Re-launch event - Dubai Mall

Hi everyone!

I had a fantastic morning and evening today at the re-launch of the Bebe Store in Dubai Mall!

First of all my twin sister, Klaudia and I attended the bloggers and media launch event and then we returned in the evening for the exclusive in store fashion shows and public event! 
It was great meeting other Bebe fans there in store! The outfit I wore was 'full on Bebe' and I'm absolutely in love with it! Bebe has always been one of my "must visit" shops when I'm in Dubai Mall!, but now, with the stunning new shop-fit and their amazing new collection I'm sure I will be going there even more often! They really do have such a great mix of classy and sexy ready to wear day and night items! Bebe has always been on my radar when I'm looking for pencil skirts and crop tops!

Pencil Perfect

Hi everyone!

Here's an outfit I wore for lunch yesterday! This green pencil skirt from Bebe is my favourite pencil skirt that I own! It gives you the best waist, the best booty and just an overall perfect fit! I now really wish I also got it in yellow when it was in store!, because yellow is also one of my favourite colours! They had these skirts in every colour! - coral, purple and black, which I also wish I got! I actually want them in every colour and then I'll be happy! :D I have it in pink as well, but pink is not exactly my top colour! 

As you can see I matched the skirt with a floral crop top that teamed up perfectly with the skirt and some neutral accessories!

Candy Crush

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd share with you a very girly look I wore yesterday! I always love wearing vibrant colours, so here's a fun and a sweet looking combo of blue and pink! The skirt I've had for a while and it's totally perfect for a super hot summer's day! (it was + 40 degrees & 70 % humidity when these pictures were taken!!) I matched it up with a simple vest top and one of my favourite scarfs and heels. To complete the blue & pink mix I added my cute new bag from Charles & Keith!

Slick & Sleek

Hi everyone! 

This is something sharp and sexy which I got from The Kript recently! Of course it's perfect for a night out, but I can totally rock it in the day too! ;D. The crop top and the skirt hugs your figure so well, you just can't help feeling sexy wearing this outfit, but still classy as there is not too much skin on show, for me at least!

I complimented the skirt and the top with two of my top fave accessories, my gun clutch and my barely there sandals from Stuart Weitzman. I also wore one of my favorite Swarovski bangles / bracelets, which teamed up colour-wise pretty nicely with my make up that day!

Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil - Review

Hi everyone!

I've been using this product for a couple of months now and I must say I'm obsessed! I basically love everything that has 'roses' written on it! Be it, macaroons, perfumes, cosmetics oh and lip balms especially! So I was very excited to see Laura Mercier created this lovely facial oil, I just had to try it immediately!

First of all lets talk about the packaging. It's so luxurious!, I love the rose gold cap and it has a nice dropper for an easy application. It contains 30ml of product, but little goes a long way, so it will last you for some time! It's enriched with Rosehip seed oil, that softens, smooths and balances the skin. It also contains Macadamia Seed oil and Safflower oil. It can be used on it's own or mixed with your moisturizer, or even with a foundation for that extra hydration. You can also use it on your hair and on your nails to soften cuticles. It really is a multi purpose oil! 
This product has a very smooth and silky consistency, but it's not very oily which I love! Most oils have that greasy feel when you put them on, but this one just melts into the skin and it absorbs so fast leaving you with just the perfect amount of glow and moisture. It's also super lightweight and I have combination skin so it's perfect! 
I do see a difference in my skin, as it's very smooth and I haven't been breaking out! My skin has been feeling extra nourished and moisturized! I'm definitely repurchasing when I finish this bottle! 

Finally, lets talk about the smell! - ohh I love it so much! That feeling when you go to bed smelling of roses! - yes please!! and it's not overpowering or 'old lady' like, it's just the perfect amount of roses!

Orange Crush

Hi everyone! 

Summer is here and I have a perfect outfit for a night out, summer party or a glamours day at the beach! I'm totally in love with this playsuit from the Sisters The Label. It's a multi way playsuit that you can wear in many ways. I seriously struggled with how I wanted to wear it!, because I just love all the possibilities!   
This look is great for a summer night out (Ibiza perfection!!) I'm wearing my gold sandals from Dsquared2 and my beloved gold bag from Octa. 

I love this orange colour, as it looks amazing with a tan! My tan is pretty minimal at the moment!, but when I tan up a bit more it will be just superb!

Blue Below

Hi everyone!

Here's a super casual outfit I wore recently. I got these cute blue pants from Zara, as I love the yellow ones I got a few weeks ago so much! They are pretty much the same, but the yellow ones have a slightly looser fit at the bottom, so these are even better! They have them in all colours. I'm definitely getting more!
For a comfy look I wore my white blouse and white pumps to match. I thought I won't be boring again with my usual nudes!, so I decided to wear this amazing blue bag from Charles and Keith!

OOTD - Jeans Obsession

Hi everyone!

My love for ripped jeans continues! I'm always on the look out for a great pair! These ones from Zara I got a couple days ago and they are definitely my favourite pair so far! I have a similar ones, but a lighter version and they are also from Zara! I think Zara has the best jeans! I simply adore them! The rips on them are soo perfect and I love the colour too! I'm very picky when it comes to my jean colour! I also love that they fit me perfectly. I prefer skinny jeans over the 'boyfriend' ones. 

Here I paired them with a baby blue blazer that is super old! , but actually this is my first time wearing it! Blue sunnies to match and nude accessories as usual! Super comfy and great for the day. A blazer with jeans is one of my favourite combos! Easy to style and always on point!

Blue Meets Yellow

Hi everyone!

Here's a super casual look I've put together recently, great for those hot weekdays in Dubai! I got these cute yellow pants from Zara a while ago and they are actually on sale now in the UK my sister told me! They are so comfy and of course I love yellow colour! I wore them with a grey top before, so here's a 'colour block' version! I love how yellow looks with blue! and these type of pants are great to have in your closet. I'm sure I will wear them with many items like blouses and blazers!

Get Skinny Body Contour at Talise Spa - Review

Hi everyone!

A while ago I visited the Talise Spa at Madinat Jumierah, here in Dubai. I tried the ''Get Skinny Body Contour" treatment as I've never tried a body wrap before and the name totally sold me! :) The treatment lasts 90 minutes and it is said to give your body a quick 'pick me up' toning session, remove your toxins and bloating. Just an overall great feeling!

I haven't been on the best food routine lately, I have to say!, so this was a great way to 'un-bloat' me and make me feel light again! Especially in my middle section! 

I love going to spas! Before every treatment you get to enjoy the facilities, dip in the plunge pool and go to the sauna and steam room! I didn't get much of that though!, because of course I was taking pictures and the lady for my treatment was waiting for me! 


The spa itself has around 26 private rooms for treatments. We went outside to my room, it was lovely! I felt like I was on holiday! The Talise spa is really big and it has a very beautiful outside pool as well! 

My treatment began with a lovely full body scrub. Each room has it's own shower, so you shower during the process and after my body scrub I had a mask put on that smelt like lemon grass! Actually everything smelt like lemon grass and everything was pure and made with amazing ingredients! 
My mask was on for about 20 minutes while I was wrapped in foil and towels. The bed was heated so the mask could work it's magic! I felt super comfy and warm!. While that was happening I got a nice head massage, which didn't give me headache!, so I was happy!!  After my mask I went to the shower to wash it all of, then I had a contour gel put all over my body. 
That's how my treatment ended! I finished off with some nice ginger tea and some dates to eat in a resting room.

I felt really nice and smooth! Although the contour gel wasn't very moisturizing, so my body felt a little dry after a few hours, but your are supposed to leave the contour gel on for the rest of the day, for it to work! I did feel the difference in my body though!, as it was definitely looking a bit more toned and slimmer! I really enjoyed it and it's great treatment to have before an event or a important day!

Bond Girl

Hi everyone!

Here's an all black outfit which I think is pretty 'bond-esque'! 
I've worn this amazing fringe skirt from Mistress Rocks for a few nights out recently and here I paired it up with a slightly 'bond-age' inspired crop top from Oh My Love! I just adore these two items together! To keep with the overall theme I had the perfect accessories! - my gun clutch and black louboutins! - Hope you like this look! - I certainly had fun wearing it! It's one of my favourites at the moment for a night out! ;)

Ripped

Hi everyone!

You might have noticed from my blog posts and my Instagram that I'm very much into ripped jeans recently! They are just so bad ass! cool and stylish! Matched with a crop top, blazer or blouse, they just always look so good! This was an outfit I wore yesterday for a casual day out - comfy & noticeably stylish! - it ticks all my boxes! The bright neon crop top from River Island hasn't been out of my closet for a while - but I thought I would pair it up with these latest ripped jeans I got from The Kript! To compliment those items, I chose my nude gun bag and a pair of nude pointy heels!

Friday Fragrance - 212 VIP Carolina Herrera

Hi everyone!

I find what perfumes are actually composed of quite fascinating! It actually makes me love them even more! Usually when you read what notes they have, you're super surprised!, but then it all clicks! I found that with this particular fragrance - 212 VIP from Carolina Herrera. This fragrance has been my favourite for a long time now! and every time I wear it I feel powerful and sexy! I didn't actually include it in my 'Top 5 Fragrances', which I posted here on my blog before, because I wanted to review it individually! It is without doubt one of my top fragrances, especially when it comes to evening fragrances. It's just so classic and sophisticated! It's very sweet and a little bit musky. This fragrance was inspired by the energetic life of New York! - the city that never sleeps! Young, stylish and modern people! and I couldn't agree more!

212 VIP and the original Roberto Cavalli are my two top perfumes for a night out! This scent has everything I love in a fragrance! It's sweet, sexy, mature, it has a gold bottle and it even has my favourite number in the name which is '2' - not to mention having Rum in it's notes! - which is my all time favourite drink!:D 

It has Vanilla and Tonka Bean as it's base notes. Musk and Gradenia as the middle notes and Passion-fruit and Rum as the main notes! - which I can very much smell! and which makes me love this perfume unconditionally! I'm running out of it quite soon and it's definitely one that I will repurchase over and over again! 
The scent is very long lasting, which is a 'must' for an evening perfume!

Too Vogue For You!

Hi everyone!

Today's look is very casual and also super comfy! I'm definitely more of a classy, 'girly girl', rather than a sporty chick, when it comes to what I wear!, but here I combined a little bit of both! and of course I added some classy heels! 
Black and white is simply my all-time favourite colour combination, so I'm in love with this cute 'Too Vogue For You'  T-shirt! It's super stylish!

Shiffa Sweetness Body Scrub - Review

Hi everyone!

I love body scrubs and I'm always on the look out to find the best one! Today I wanted to review the Shiffa Sweetness Body Scrub, which I have been loving recently!

I love very strong scrubs, that do the work they are supposed to do properly! I don't like the ones that dissolve so fast and after 5 seconds you are basically done scrubbing! - if you know what I mean!! ;) but I also don't like scrubs that are too harsh! - like salt based ones for example.

This is probably the first sugar based scrub that I've tried, which doesn't really dissolve so fast. It's quite amazing! It has great ingredients such as aloe vera, rosemary, almond oil and coconut oil, that makes the skin silky soft! 
The thing I don't particularly like about this scrub is sadly the smell of it! Although I'm getting used to it now! It's definitely 'not my cup of tea' type of smell! - it's quite strong! 
This scrub is very oily and so I usually use it first and then I follow with the shower gel and I'm left with perfect skin that has just the right amount of glow and moisture to it! If you don't mind the 'oily feel' and your skin is quite dry, you can use it after your shower gel and your skin won't even need a moisturizer! - it's that good!

This product separates because of its oil contents (as you can see on the picture below) - which is a little sad!, so you do have to mix it very well before every use!, but it's based out of natural products, so it's bound to do that!
Overall I highly recommend it! Smell it and if it's your kind of scent, then you will fall in love! and even though the smell bothers me a little, I still love it!, as it's a great great product! Who knows I might even love the smell one day!;)
You can get it at Sephora here in Dubai.

Emerald Butterfly

Hi everyone!

I got these cute emerald butterfly heels from Aruna Seth quite recently and I couldn't wait to wear them! They are just so girly and they are in my favourite colour!! - so I'm extra excited!! :D
When I wear such statement heels I pretty much dress from down up! so I coordinate what matches with my heels. Here I went with a little bit more green and wore this simple silky top from River Island. I decided to keep things classy and fresh so I wore white shorts and a white vest! I love this outfit from day to night!

Rainbow

Hi everyone!

Midi skirts are so in style now and I found one that is a definite eye catcher, as well as being very affordable! This H&M multi coloured skirt is extra girly and can give any look that extra pop of colour! I just adore it! Here I paired it up with a simple nude top from New Look, nude YSL sandals and my new nude clutch from Vlieger & Vandam. I think this is great casual summer look, with a bit of an edge to it!

Hi everyone!

Friday Fragrance - Diptyque Florabellio

Hi everyone!

Today's Friday Fragrance is a little bit different! - not exactly something I would normally pick!
Diptyque Florabellio is a super fresh, salty and quite a strong scent! 
When I first smelt it, it reminded me a lot of 'Alien' by Thierry Mugler - which unfortunately gives me a headache! The notes are totally different for both of these perfumes, but somehow it smells so similar. The Florabeillo is a lot fresher though! The thing that I like about this fragrance is the apple blossom note, which makes it really fresh and floral. I personally love apple blossom notes in any perfumes, that's why this scent might just make it into my collection!  

The top notes of this fragrance are Sea notes, Sea Salt and Fennel. The Sea Salt notes remind me very much of a Calvin Klein Reveal perfume! I feel like if Thierry Mugler 'Alien' and Calvin Klein 'Reveal' had a baby, then it would be a little Florabiello!!! 
The middle notes are Apple Blossom and Osmanthus, and the base notes   are Roasted Coffee Beans and Sesame, which I must say I can't really smell!

The longevity of this perfume is moderate. I also really like the bottle design! It is a classic Diptyque black and white theme and clear bottle!

Shades Of Nude

Hi everyone!

Neutral colours are one of my favourites. I just love how classy they look! Here I'm wearing a super gorgeous dress from Kyna Collection, which has quite an unusual design! - you can basically wear it many different ways! The straps are very long so you can wrap them around as you like! This dress comes in black and also in red, which I definitely want as well!

Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove - Review

Hi everyone!

Washing your makeup brushes is not always fun is it! I personally don't like doing it. Well Sigma Beauty made it a lot more enjoyable I would say!
Few days ago I received the new Spa Express brush cleaning glove and I must say I'm totally impressed!  
I always wanted to try their original glove, which is like a full on glove, more bulky. They recently made one with two thumbs which is even bigger so I was so happy to see they invented a travel friendly, compact glove which works basically the same! The first time I tried it I was obsessed! It cleans your brushes very well, much better then you would with a bare flat hand, it makes the process faster and just over all more fun! It has two sides so it's reversible, one for face and one for eyes. Which I didn't realized at first! ;)
It has 7 patented textures which include wash, rinse, refine and refine plus for each side. The glove itself is very comfy to wear and it fits very well on my hand. It's supper light as well which is great! It's also designed for left handed people so I can make my boyfriend wash my brushes too! :D

For those of you who own a lot of makeup brushes I would definitely recommend this! I think it's absolutely genius and I don't know how I was living without it! For more info check here.

My 'Go To' Blushes

Hi everyone!

Like every makeup addict I love blushes! and I definitely have a thing for coral / brown shades! I think they look so good with a tan and give you a lovely sun kissed glow! and they are not so overpowering! I feel like bright pink blushes are out of fashion now! Although there are some that have a nice dark / blue undertone, like Nars Amour or Mac Desert Rose, they are very pretty! I love to use shades like that for winter time with darker, bolder looks!, but for my day to day looks I love my warm tones! Here's a few that I love to use on a daily basis and that match with pretty much any makeup!....

New Favourites!! Most Luxurious Body Care

Hi everyone!

I wanted to try L'occitane products for quite some time now, as I always heard good things about them! I must say it took me a while! I always was passing by, trying to smell the products, but they never really sold me! and so I just tended to ignore them!

Anyway I finally got some of the 'Amande' almond range products and I'm totally obsessed! With skin/body care I'm all about stuff that smells good! I can't stand putting products on my face or body that don't have a nice smell, and I must say this smell is just so beautiful/luxurious it makes you feel like you're in a spa! I don't know how I could live without it now! I did a post about my favourite body care a while back, and I still like the Laura Mercier body products, but I must say this is just on another level! My new favourite by far!......

Baroque Inspiration

Hi everyone!

I'm in the UK visiting my family, and I must say I thought it would be a little bit warmer, but it's super cold! It's still nice and sunny, but it's like 10 degrees! Anyway I'm kind of pleased about it as I can still rock my boots! :) I love them so much, they are extremely comfy. 
I don't own any dark blue items, so I got this very cute jacket from Zara. It has a quite thick material, so it's good for the weather. To make this outfit look a bit more fancy I wore these super cute leggings from The Kript.

My Favourite Makeup Brushes

Hi everyone!

 A lot of you have asked me what are my favourite brushes to use for makeup! So I decided to do a post of my current favourites! I must say brushes are one of the most important things in makeup application, if you have bad quality brushes, then your makeup won't look as perfect as it could look and it usually takes even more time to do it! Of course not everyone wants to buy the most expensive brushes, but these days there are so many companies that sell great quality brushes for affordable prices! For me I love good quality brushes! I love to invest in them as I know they will last me for a long time! I'm a sucker for soft and cute brushes! If I see a different shape of a brush that I don't have, I immediately buy it, as I always want to find something better! So far some of my favourite brushes are from Mac, Tom Ford and Make up For Ever!
If you want affordable and amazing quality brushes I would definitely check Sigma , Makeup Geek Real Techniques and Morphe Brushes. They are amazing! 

I have about 100 brushes now and I did have even more!, but I gave some to my sister! I constantly buy new ones as I just love them! It's a serious problem actually! there are so many brushes I would love to try like Hakuhodo brushes, as they are super luxurious! But so far I'm very pleased with my brushes and I love how they work and how they make my makeup application fast and easy. 

Below are my daily brushes that I use and take with me everywhere! I also have some other brushes to show you that are slightly more affordable and have great quality! I won't be showing you my whole collection as it's too much!, but here are the ones worth talking about!

Denim On Denim

Hi everyone!

I've been wanting to do a denim on denim look for as long as I remember! The only thing that was holding me back, was the fact that I'm not a big fan of the actual colour of the denim that everyone is wearing. This dull / old fashion jean colour! I don't know why, but I don't like it! I looked at the denim tops always and I never found one that I liked and which matched with the type of jeans I like. 

Well I finally found the perfect denim combo! This light colour denim is very sexy in my opinion and it just looks better. I absolutely love it! I got both of the items a few days ago in Zara, so they have it in store! I wore it with nude heels and a nude bag for a simple, classy look, but you can totally rock this with statement colored heels! I'm badly in need of some colourful heels in my closet!

Just a little dress!

Hi everyone!

Zara is probably one of my favourite high street shops, as they always have great stuff! 
The other day I went to check out the new collections and I saw this dress! I didn't know want to think of it at first, as the print and colour is definitely not totally my style, but I really liked the design, how short it was and just overall cuteness of it! So after trying it on, I was obsessed! Here I decided to pair it with simple nude accessories.

Thanks for checking.
