Best Boots For This A/W

Wednesday, September 26, 2018



Autumn is here! Well at least officially, because here in Portugal the temperatures are still quite warm. Even though this is my current situation I know that is other countries the temperatures are already dropping down so I'm sure a lot of you are already thinking about your autumn/winter wardrobe (and I envy you to be honest) so I've decided to gather up a few of my favourite boots for this season.

I think boots are a great way for people like me, who prefer more basic pieces, to step out of their comfort zone in a way that won't make you feel weird. I've gathered a few more flashy boots as well as more basic ones for more everyday wear.

How To Stay Motivated When Working From Home

Friday, September 21, 2018


Working from home is both a blessing and a curse: it's a blessing because you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to go to work and a curse because, since you're in the comfort of your home, you tend to slack off.  As I mainly do my work from home I've gathered a few tips that have helped me be more productive and motivated and I'm today to share them with you.

Dress up

This step might sound a bit superfluous but I'm telling you, it will increase your productivity by a lot. When working from home, we all have the urge to just stay in our pyjamas or just throw on some jogger pants and an old t-shirt but what happens when we do that is that we make excuses: '' Oh I should do a video for my instagram stories to promote my new blogpost but I'm wearing ugly clothes so I'll just do it tomorrow.'', then tomorrow becomes the next day and next thing you know a week has passed and no sign of that video. Dressing up and doing your makeup and hair will end your excuses. therefore it'll make you more productive.

With that being said, I'm not saying you should wear a dress and high heels when you're at home, that's just unrealistic in my opinion but you should have a few pieces that are comfortable and stylish at the same time. My go-to working from home outfit (and the one I'm wearing as I write this) is a white t-shirt, black cropped trousers and black Gucci-inspired slides.



Have a schedule 

 I have mentioned this before on one of my posts before but I'll say it again because I can't stress this enough: having a set schedule is the most important thing when it comes to staying motivated and productive. Having a schedule allows you to visualize how your day looks like and having that will automatically make you more productive: you know you should be doing a certain task at a certain hour so you'll feel pressured to do it.  Setting deadlines is the way to go.

Designate work hours 
            
            When working from home we tend to do work whenever we feel like it but the truth is we end up doing nothing. Working from home is just like working for a company: there should be designated hours for your work. I'm not saying you have to work from 9 to 5 but you should choose a schedule that won't mess up with your other things and that you know you'll be able to stick with. 

How To Style This Seasons's Biggest Trend: Leopard Print

Monday, September 17, 2018



We've been seeing everyone and their mother wearing leopard print lately: this trend has taken the fashion world by storm and we're all for it! 
Leopard print has been around on and off for quite a few years now - I mean who can forget Janice's iconic head-to-toe leopard print outfit on that ''Friends'' episode- but never as strongly as this season. Just this past NYFW we saw a bunch of influencers and celebrities rocking this trend in several different ways.

Now, if you're someone like me who always sticks to neutral colours and isn't really used to wear bold prints, maybe you'll want to start small with this trend: instead of going straight to the clothes, try accessories first. A leopard print bag is a great place to start off. If later you come to the conclusion that you actually like this trend and you will wear it, then go all for it.

Below are some of my favourite leopard print items as well as a few different ways you can wear this trend.

Back To School Outfit Ideas

Saturday, September 01, 2018




School is almost here for some people (I know, sad) and in some places, it has already started (I know, even sadder) and we all want to look our best when starting another school year right? Well, today I decided to gather up a few outfit ideas to hopefully inspire you when it comes to what you'll wear on your first day back in school. For this post, I tried to be as vast as possible: I've made outfits for all weather situations as well as for different types of styles. I've created more casual outfits as well as more fancy-ish ones.
