12 all black outfits

Wednesday, November 28, 2018



Have you ever found yourself thinking about what to wear, spending a generous amount of time looking around your closet and then ending up wearing an all-black outfit because that's the easiest option? Yeah, me too. Too many times to count, to be honest.

I love black. Half of my wardrobe consists of black items: black coats, black bottoms, black tops, black bags... pretty much everything I own is black. I've been trying to change this a little bit though, buying more light coloured items. However, I always end up going back to my black outfits because those are the easiest to style and they are pretty much fool-proof.

Today I've gathered a few different ways you can wear all black and look extremely stylish.

Gift Guide For Her

Friday, November 23, 2018




I feel like I'm a bit late to the party, even though Christmas is over a month away, but ever since the beginning of the month, I've been seeing Christmas Gift Guides everywhere. So... here's another one! And just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
I thought about doing a bunch of different gift guides like 'beauty gift guide' and other like that but honestly, I think it's better to have everything in one place so you can easily access it if you're stuck on what to buy your mum, sister, girlfriend or whoever the person might be.

Best Teddy Coats For This A/W

Wednesday, November 21, 2018



The best thing about winter and the cold weather for me is the fact that we get to wear big warm coats. I think coats give outfits a little something that ups their level: I don't know I just love coats. Today we'll be focusing on teddy coats: probably the biggest coat trend this season. These coats are being sold pretty much in every store and you can find them in every size, shape and colour.

Since these coats can be a bit more on the expensive side, I decided to show you my favourite teddy coats today so you can get them on sale this Black Friday.

Pinterest Group Boards You Can be Apart of Right Now

Monday, November 19, 2018



Pinterest is the platform that drives the most traffic to my blog: I get an average of 150 new visitors daily through my Pinterest account which might seem like a small number but if you really think about it, it's actually huge. This is all possible because of group boards. For those who don't know what a group board is, it's basically a Pinterest board that has a bunch of people pinning into it. Normally these group boards have a theme, for example, Paris so the people who have access to the board and can pin there are only allowed to pin pictures related to Paris.


Today we'll be focusing on blogging group boards. These group boards are made specifically for bloggers and are a place where we can share our latest blogposts or any blogposts we've written for that matter. I think these are amazing not just to promote your work but also to discover other bloggers who might have the same niche as you and might want to collaborate with you.

There aren't just bloggers who follow these group boards, people who don't blog also follow them, which means they will probably see your post and might click on it. BAM, new reader.

I've gathered a list of group boards that I feel are great for bloggers are will boost your blog traffic.

  1. Beauty Blogger Babes Group Board 
  2. Blogging Pros Group Board 
  3. Group Board: Fashion Beauty and Lifestyle Bloggers (this is the group board I've created)
  4. Post Your Blog! Bloggers Promote Here
  5. Beauty + Style Blogs Group Board 
  6. Top Blogs: Pinterest Viral Board 
  7. ~Beauty Fashion & Lifestyle Bloggers 
  8. Bloggers Unite 
  9. Blogger Style 
  10. Beauty + Fashion Bloggers (Group Board)
  11. Top Bloggers (Group Board)
  12. Blog + Business Tips (Group Board)
  13. Female Bloggers Free For All 

Do you have any group board recommendations?


How to Style Plaid

Plaid has always been a thing during autumn/winter months but there are years where it's more prominent and this is exactly what's happening this year. You know that whole schoolgirl uniform vibe? Yeah, that's a thing this year. I personally have a love-hate relationship with this kind of look meaning I'll hate it one day and I'll love it the next. But plaid is not being worn just in skirts. We've been seeing a lot of plaid pants and plaid coats (which are my favourite way to wear plaid by the way) recently as well.

Today I've gathered a few different ways you can wear plaid this season, as well as some of my favourite plaid pieces.

Things to do on a rainy day

Friday, November 09, 2018




Guess who's back after a whole entire month without posting? This girl! Ah, it feels so good to be back blogging, I never thought I'd miss is this much. Today's blogpost is something simple since I'm still getting on track with everything: a list of things to do during rainy weather.

I don't how the weather has been in your country but here in Portugal it has been raining quite frequently and I don't mind it at all. I've always loved cold and rainy weather more than sunny and hot weather. In honour of this, I've gathered a list of 10 things you can do when it's raining so you don't get bored.

  • Invite a friend over and have a movie marathon or just have one by yourself. I suggest you do a Disney movie marathon. Trust me, you'll love it.
  • Search for new recipes and try them out. Pinterest it amazing for this. I have a whole board dedicated to recipes I want to try out.
  • Do a fun DIY. I saw one of a personalized umbrella the other day and it looked super cute.
  • Search for new tv shows to watch. There are always new tv shows to watch so you'll never get bored
  • Do a deep cleaning of your home. Since you're at home, why not occupy your time making it clean?
  • Read that book you've been putting off reading for the longest time. I've started reading 'Into The Water' during the summer but ended up forgetting about the book. Now that there isn't a lot you can do outside, I've been catching up with the book.
  • Journal. When I say journal I don't necessarily mean write about your day: you can write about anything and everything. Recently, I've discovered kpop journaling and I've really enjoyed it.
  • Get ahead on school work or any kind of work. Have a paper due in two weeks? Why not start on it now? 
  • Organize your closet. Have you exchanged your summer clothes for your winter clothes? If not this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
  • Have a pamper day. Create your own little spa at home. Do a face mask, a hair mask, do your nails or just have a good old bubble bath

    What are your favourite things you like to do when it's raining outside?
