First thing first, with this post I consider my season of Christmas themed posts open. Second, and I feel I should be honest with you... I'm a Christm-aholic.

Style inspiration - Summer

With over 30°c out and actual summer less than a month away, I can't help but think of outfits to survive the heat on. Color, prints, pyjama and printed pants and skirts, sandals, flattops, flat boots, high waisted skirts, and dresses with jackets (because I refuse to show my arms no matter the temperature). Here are some of the styles I inspire to for summer.

jewelry picks

Lately I have found myself reaching for the same pieces of jewelry over and over again, So I decided to put them all up in a blog post and show them to you.
As you can see there's not much colour in my pics, I'm not one for bright or colourful jewelry, or clothes for that matter, and I love not having to match up the colour in the pieces with my clothing. I just hate when you're really loving something (say a handbag or shoes) and they don't match your outfit. Probably the reason for my almost pure black wardrobe.
The little triangle necklace is just perfect for simple tees and dresses. As it is a bit longer, it looks really great and relaxed over anything and honestly if I could only pic one piece of jewelry, it would be this necklace. The gold one is a bit shorter and perfect for shirts. I'm a big button up kinda gal, and this is perfect for under the collar (bit tricky now that the warmer months are coming). The rings are midi rings and actually came in a set of five, but I love to wear three (two in one finger and one on its own). The earrings are more of a hair-up choice. I don't really wear earrings that much, so I love that these two pairs are little and non-heavy. This look great specially with a messy bun and a bit of hair down the side of the face. The little silver earrings were a birthday gift, and I didn't start wearing them until recently. But I just love the way they peak

Hope you liked my pics!

Rimmel Natural Bronzer - Review

It's official: spring is here.
I mean, technically, spring has been here for over a month and we are having summer like temperatures- but with the return of the warmer months I star to get that want for sunshine and realize just how pale my skin is looking.

Product Love: L'oreal Blur Cream

A couple of weeks ago I posted a little haul that included this product, and since a couple of people asked my opinion about it, I decided to do a review of it. Spoiler alert: I love it.

Top Three: matte red lipsticks

If you've been reading my blog for some time, then you know my love for a good matte lipstick. Gloss and shimmer just isn't my thing (at least for my lips), and after trying many lipsticks, I've come to find my trusty trio of red perfection

Beauty chat: Tips and Tricks

  • When doing winged liner, look straight ahead for the flick, in triangle shape and then fill it in (and if you want perfection, first guideline yourself with eyeshadow and a angled brush).
  • Want to make your favourite lipstick matte? no problem, apply the lipstick (I prefer a bit of liner underneath, but it's a personal choice) and blot in a tissue, then apply with your finger a itty-little bit of a similar colour blush, removing the shine and making the lips look velvety and matte (IMPORTANT: use a matte blush).
  • Never apply blush further in than the line of your iris. Apply in the further out of your face and upwards.

Spring inspiration

So here's the thing, it's August 23rd and it's 27°C out. It's still a whole month to spring and we are having summer apropriate temperatures! so, I couldn't help but think of bright colours, loose fabrics, and all things spring wear. Here are just a couple of the pictures I found that made me go "yes, I want to wear THAT". What's THAT? simple: kimonos, jeans, boxy and loose shirts, high waisted stuff, long dresses, belts, flowy tops, leather-strip sandals, booties, lace, printed tees and a lotta lotta black and white (and maybe some colour, here and there).

When the weather winds start to change, and the new season is upon us, it can only mean on thing: Winter is coming. No, wait, I live in the southern hemisphere, so Spring is coming.

Birthday wishlist

So my birthday is just around the corner, a day away to be exact. And it would be my Bday's eve if I didn't make a little wish list of ideal gifts. Little disclaimer, I'm not really expecting to get this items (some are not even available in my country), as a matter of fact, I really suck at telling people what I want as a gift my policy is more of "whatever you think I'd like". So this is my "gifts I would buy for myself if I had a lot of money" wish list.

Product love: Maybelline Master Precise

Move over Dior, there's a new eye liner in my life
A cat-flick-lover's quest for her liner soul mate is endless, but from time to time you find a really great product to have an affair, or even a love story with... wow I woke up on the romantic side of my bed, but really, this eye liner is the shiz.

One about music

A little bit of a different post today. As I was sitting in front of my laptop thinking about what post to put up, I realised that I've been listening to the same songs over and over again, so I decided to make that my post, the songs I've been obsessing over lately...

Beauty chat: The budget face mask

Let my paint a mental picture: If I'm out and about on a hot day after about 6 hours you could fry an egg on my face. Well, maybe I'm exagerating, but I do have very oily skin and quite a couple of pimples and black heads (sexy, I know).

The one palette you'll need this season

Product Love: Rimmel Brixton Brown Palette

As I mentioned in last week's post, I picked this up the moment I saw it in the drugstore since I'd been eyeing it online for about four months.

Como mencione en el posteo de la semana pasada, compré esto el momento en que lo vi en la farmacia porque la había estado deseando desde hace cuatro meses.

What can I say, it's been a busy couple of weeks, and I love nothing more than preparing for a new season like wondering around beauty isles.
Here you can see the result.

Products I regret buying #2: Rimmel BB cream

A couple of months ago I decided to try my very first BB cream and went for the one drugstore edition that promised, among other marvels, to mattify my skin. Oh, silly me...

Call me crazy, but I hate summer. I know that anyone reading this from the northern hemisphere will wish me a polar vortex, but I can't wait for winter!

An eye on Fashion Week

There are a couple of weeks a year when my free time in front of the computer is dedicated to one thing, and one thing only: fashion week.
I love seeing what the new designers have in mind and what the trends are going to be, but this year I decided to change my point of view and shift from the clothes to the face. here are my picks of the makeup trend for this Fall Winter 2014.

Product love #4: Revealed palette

I'm one to profess my love for eyeshadow and, like most beauty addicts, I've been eyeing the Naked palettes for some time... my only problem? they are not available in my country.

Soy una persona que profesa su amor por las sombras y, como la mayor parte de los adictos a la belleza, he observado con cariño a las paletas Naked por un tiempo, mi único problema? no están disponibles en mi pais.
