New Year's Eve Outfit Ideas

Thursday, December 28, 2017



We all like to look good everyday right? But we like to look even better on special occasions. The new year is always a special occasion, maybe more so to some than others. However, you can't deny that new year's eve is one of those days/nights that you are very likely not to forget for the whole new year.

Winter Skincare Essentials

Friday, December 22, 2017


I love winter: it's probably my favourite season. I love being cosy under a warm blanket, watching a film next to my fireplace with a warm tea on my hand. However, even though I love winter, I hate what it does to my skin. I have an oily t-zone but the rest of my face is pretty much problem-free, that is until winter comes. My skin gets super dry, especially on my cheeks, my lips get all gross and my hands feel like they've been lost in the Sahara desert for 30 years.

Holiday To-Do List

Wednesday, December 20, 2017





I've got a Pinterest board filled with Christmasy stuff such as decor ideas, recipes and bunch of other things and I was looking through it yesterday and thought 'There's a ton of stuff I want to do before Christmas. I'll just make a list.'' And I did. Then, as I looked through it I came to the conclusion that the list could be used by everyone, not just me. So, here it is: my (and now yours) holiday to-do list.

Holiday Dinner Party Outfit Ideas

Monday, December 18, 2017



The Holidays are always a busy time for pretty much everyone. From gift shopping to decorating our homes, to dinner parties, we barely have time to breath. Today I'm here to make your life a little bit easier during this time. As I said above, we're pretty much all busy with dinner parties, among other things and if we can save up some time when choosing what to wear, then why not?

Best Ugly Christmas Jumper

Wednesday, December 13, 2017


You know those jumpers filled with Christmas related imagery we all say we hate but secretly love? Those are the ones I'll talk about today. Everyone complains about how ugly they are and yet jump at the opportunity to wear one. I can honestly say I love them. They are cheesy, borderline tacky but they are a part of Christmas and for that, they have my love. 

Gift Guide For Him

Monday, December 11, 2017




I have to be honest: this was the hardest gift guide to put together. I don't know why but I always struggle with what to give to guys. It's probably because I'm a girl and am much more comfortable with choosing gifts for other girls since I can relate to them more and have a wider knowledge of what girls like. This is exactly what men feel when they have to buy us something. Anyways, I've gathered a few things that are pretty good gifts and are things pretty much all men like. 

What Happens After I Take Off My Makeup

Wednesday, December 06, 2017


 We've all seen Bloggers/YouTubers talking about how they do their makeup, their hair and everything like that, but lately, the 'Get Unready With Me' type of post/video seems to be a trend. I'm going, to be honest with you, I much rather prefer reading/watching these than the 'Get Ready With Me' ones. I feel like these are much more genuine. You're letting other people into your real life and not just the glamorous part. I don't know if I'm making any sense right now but that's just how I feel.


Gift Guide - Stocking Fillers

Monday, December 04, 2017



There are some people who prefer to receive (and also give) a bunch of small gifts instead of a big one. I'm one of those people. 
On this gift guide, I tried to gather up bits and bobs that could work for every girl: I've got beauty, fashion and lifestyle. Here are my favourite stocking fillers.

Styling The Trend: Pink

Saturday, December 02, 2017


Pink is normally a colour people associated with spring and summer. It's a light and vibrant colour commonly known to be a girly and princessy colour. Lately, though we've been seeing pink more and more, on women and men, during all occasions and seasons. Millenial Pink has been the talk of the town for the past few years and people are adhering to this trend more and more as the years go by.

Gift Guide: Lifestyle

Thursday, November 30, 2017



Here I am again with another gift guide. This time it's all about lifestyle/home. I have to say this is one of my favourite gift guides I've been working on, I just want to buy everything! I love these kinds of gifts, to be honest. I think they are so cute and so much more personal than, say, a jumper. don't get me wrong I love getting clothes for Christmas but I think you don't put as much thought into it as you do with home/lifestyle gifts. Anyway, here's my favourite lifestyle picks.

Gift Guide- Fashion

Tuesday, November 28, 2017




This gift guide series wouldn't be completed without a fashion related post. Also, I wouldn't be doing my job properly if I didn't write this post either. I mean, this is a fashion blog after all.

A Very Cosy Christmas Gift Guide

Monday, November 27, 2017

I wanted to start posting Christmas related posts as soon as possible since I have a ton of festive posts planned. I decided to start with a gift guide for the homebody (aka me), people who love to stay at home and just relax.

7 Small Changes For A Healthier Lifestyle

Monday, November 13, 2017



I think we've all been in that place where we think 'I need to eat healthier.' or 'I need to exercise more', or even 'I need to make some serious lifestyle changes.', but thinking these things and actually doing them are two totally different things. We can think about them all we want but if we don't put them into practice, nothing will happen.


Now, I know making lifestyle changes are hard, whether we're talking about health changes, routine changes or any other kind of changes. Us humans have a hard time adapting to new situations and routines. But we also have something called willpower: and that's what allows us to make these changes.

When changing your lifestyle, you should never be radical about it - trust me that never works-, you should start small and gradually build up the changes. This is the best way to implement new things in your life and get them to really stick.


Disclaimer: I am in no way a health specialist. These tips are ones that worked for me and were passed onto me by my cousin, who is a nutritionist


1- Switch your fizzy drinks for tea 

I can't say I found this change hard since I pretty much only drink water, milk and tea, but I know this can be hard for people who love fizzy drinks. Tea is a great substitute for those high-calorie and high on sugary drinks. You can drink it hot, cold, with milk, without milk, with sugar and without sugar.

There are a ton of teas available out there, but if you are doing this to get healthier, I'd suggest you choose a tea that will boost your metabolism. Lately, I've been drinking the Slim Life Tea. This tea is specifically made for people who want to lose those extra pounds and can't seem to do it.

 Of course, the results will be much bigger if accompanied by healthier eating habits, but the Slim Life Tea contains polyphenol which blocks enzymes from building fat, that meaning you can lose weight just by drinking this tea. Personally, I wouldn't recommend doing just this because what will happen is that after you finish your 28-day program, you'll just gain the weight you lost back because you didn't make any other changes in your life.

Either way, I would strongly recommend you take a look at the Slim Life Tea's website and try their tea. It's super tasty and easy to prepare and it will help you get closer to your health goal.



2- Switch to small plates 

People are visual beings, there's no denying that. Using small plates instead of big ones will trick your brain into thinking there's a lot more food on your plate. The amount is exactly the same, but as the food occupies a lot more space on the smaller plate, it'll look like you're eating a lot more than you actually are.


3- Take advantage of those breaks

Don't have time to work out? Or maybe you do but you're just lazy? Try doing small exercises on your breaks. For example, you're watching tv and commercials are on: use those 5 minutes to do some squats, crunches or push-ups. This might seem like little but if you do this every time a tv show goes on a break, you'll end up doing a lot more than you think.



4- Drink, drink drink 

Most of the time we think we're hungry, we are actually thirsty. Try drinking a cup/glass of either water or tea and then see if you still feel hungry. if you don't, that's it, you were thirsty.


5- Wait 20 minutes before you repeat your meal 

20 minutes is the amount of time your brain takes to process that there's food on your stomach. That's why you should wait 20 minutes before deciding to get yourself another serving of food. Those 20 minutes can be cut short if you eat slowly. I can't eat slowly though and I know a lot of people are like me so 20 minutes it is.


6- Out of sight, out of mind

The best way not to eat those chocolate biscuits or drink that coke is not to have it at home. Plain and simple. If you don't want to be tempted to eat them, don't buy them.


7- Try new recipes 

This is a very helpful tip. As my grandma says 'there are 101 ways to cook something'  so there's always an option. You might not like a certain food cooked a certain way but you might love it when cooked a different way. I hated broccoli. Couldn't stand it really. But one day I was browsing through Pinterest and this recipe popped up and I decided to try it. Now I can say I love broccoli.

15 Things Only Bloggers Do

I think it's safe to say that when you do something for a considerable amount of time, you pick up little traits related to what you do. The same thing happens with blogging. There are things only bloggers do, so only bloggers will understand. I can't tell you how many times my dad asks me: ''Why can't you take a picture on some random wall?

How To Fall Asleep Faster

Tuesday, November 07, 2017




We've all been there: we need to get up early in the morning but can't seem to fall asleep.  no matter how hard we try, it just doesn't happen. this happens primarily when people are under an excessive amount of stress, whether it's work-related stress, school-related stress or just general life-related stress. 


This has been happening to me a lot recently. At first, I didn't understand why but then I sat down and really thought about it and came to the conclusion that I was stressed because of Uni. After I got to the root of the problem, I started tackling it. I made a few changes to my daily routine and my stress level diminished a lot. Still, though, my sleep pattern was off, so I started doing some things before bed. Here's how I got around falling asleep faster and started to sleep better. 


POWER OFF 
I've talked about this on my 'How To Sleep Better' post and it's something that really helped me. Electronic devices like phones, Tv's and computers stimulate your brain, making it very awake. If you want a good night's sleep, turn them off  (or at least put them on silent mode and away from you) 30 minutes. 


TIDY UP 


Nothing drives more insane than a messy space. I think I'm a bit OCD when it comes to tidying up and organising. I can't go to bed without tidying up my bedroom and I think that's something that really helps me to fall asleep faster and have a better night's sleep. I know it sounds kinda weird but it's true. Try it. 


AMBIANCE

This is crucial for a good night's sleep. Your room can't be too hot nor too cold or you won't fall asleep as you'll feel uncomfortable. Also, try soothing aromas: there are these sprays made specifically to help you fall asleep.
Make sure your room is dark as light stimulates your brain (that's why I talked about turning off your devices)


CLEAR YOUR MIND 

Being worried keeps you up at night. Your mind is all over the place and not calm and relaxed like it should be. Try writing down everything you're thinking about whether that is things you need to do the next day or random thought. Write it down. 



I hope these tips can help you. Let me know what you normally do to sleep faster!

10 Effortless Work Outfits

Sunday, November 05, 2017



I can't speak for myself on this one since I don't work, but I know for a fact that there comes a time in every woman's life where she has absolutely no idea what to wear to work. Not just to work, to everywhere really, but today we're just focusing on work. 

Depending on what your job is, you have different amounts of freedom in terms of what you can and cannot wear. I think it's obvious that someone who works in a bank won't be able to wear the same thing someone who works from home can. I personally agree with this only to some extent, but I'm not here to talk about that either. Today, I'm showing you a few different outfit ideas you can wear to work. 

I tried to create outfits that could be used by everyone and that can be easily adapted to every workplace. I hope you enjoy them!
