Birthday Shots

Sunday, May 20, 2018

At the beginning of this month, I turned 21 years-old. I've been meaning to do a blogpost sharing a few snaps of how my day went but uni duty calls and I've had my eyes glued to Shakespeare's plays and English culture for the last 3 weeks.

So it seems the sun is here to stay (finally). I think it's safe to say we were all sick and tired of winter, so this warm weather is more than welcome! In honour of Spring, I decided to gather my favourite spring dress finds, all under 100$, so you can look super trendy and stylish on a budget.

Gamiss Haul

Saturday, May 05, 2018

For the past few months, I've been collecting a few Gamiss items the brand kindly sent to me. It's been a while since I've done a haul here on the blog so I decided to gather my items and show them to you. I'll also do a little review for those people who want to buy from Gamiss but are still a bit in defence about it.

The first two things I got were this floral sports bra and marble-ish leggings. When I first saw the sports bra on the Gamiss website I immediately fell in love with it. The stripes and the flowers make up a gorgeous pattern that I personally never thought could work. I can say this sports bra is super comfortable and it supports the girls quite well. My favourite part of this piece is perhaps the little pocket it has on the back so you can put your phone or iPod so you can exercise while listening to music.

Next up, I got these black and white leggings. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with the pattern when I received them: just because I was hoping it would look more marble-ish. the leggings are still pretty, don't get me wrong. I was just hoping for a slightly different thing. If you're interested in buying these leggings I'd say size up as the fabric is not as stretchy as I was thought they would be.

I was also sent this black mini bag that I'm absolutely in love with! It's got a very similar vibe to the Gucci Dionysus bag, which I absolutely adore, so when I saw it I was like 'You. Are going directly to my cart.' If you're not into small bags,  I'd say stay away from this one as this is probably one of the smallest bags I own. I can only fit in there my phone, card-holder, a lipstick, my keys and that's about it. I love it though.

In terms of casual everyday clothing, I received this white ribbed top with ruffles on the sleeves. The top is super pretty and can easily be styled with anything you want, however it runs quite small. When I saw it on the website I realised right away that it looked quite small so I sized it up by 3 sizes but it's still quite small for me. If you're into tight-fitting tops I'd say size up 1 size or even order it on your actual size but if you're like me and you like tops to be a bit looser then I'd either say size up a lot or don't buy it.

Last but not least comes my favourite item of this haul: this beautiful eyeshadow palette. I've been into pink and red makeup looks a lot these past few months so I ordered this palette thinking it would be great for that. And it is. The eyeshadows are super duper pigmented- so much so that you just need the tiniest amount to cover your whole eye. The metallic shades are a bit tricky to apply just because they give their maximum payoff when you apply them with your fingers and I'm very clumsy so sometimes I just end up ruining everything. If I had to recommend only one thing out of all the things I've shown you in this haul, I would say this palette 100%. 

Have you ever bought anything from Gamiss?

May Playlist

Wednesday, May 02, 2018

It's been a while since I've done one of these, hasn't it? Well, my monthly playlists are back and (in my humble opinion) better than ever! I've always been a big music fan so I love discovering new songs and artist and show them to my friends and family. This month's playlist features two songs from a band I never thought I'd fall in love with: BTS. That's right, I've jumped into the kpop bandwagon! I've known BTs pretty much since they debuted but only a few months ago I started to pay attention to them but now I can honestly say I'm in love with them.
