I don’t have enough words to express my obsession with this cute little bag from Oasis. I recently did a post on this bag and two other, but it’s just amazing. And goes with so many outfits. It’s out of stock at House of Fraser (where I originally got it), but you can buy it at Asos or your local Oasis.
The boots are from River Island (check out my previous posts). Wore them the first time today and they are not only stylish but extremely comfy, too.

Just received my new phone case and i love love love them. I got all of them on sale. The one that has lights is from Textile Federation and I found it at Asos. It was around $16.
The two others are from River Island (of course 🙂 and they were only $6 each!
The gold one is my favourite. It’s by RI and it has this very expensive and fashionable feeling to it.
The Ring Ring one is by Skinnydip, which is a cool UK-based brand that does iphone cases and stunning plastic clutches with heave embellishment. Soooo pretty.

Like most girls I love bags. I get really excited when I purchase a new bag and since I recently got three new bags, I decided to do this post.

Okay, so I am in love with structured bags right now. They make any outfit (even when I look like a homeless drug addict lol) put together and more sophisticated. Also I kind of prefer smaller bags right now, so I bought these.

We are all raving about black and white for quite a while. This combo looks super chic but also it’s very easy to style. I got this pretty clutch from River Island on sale and I was amazed with it’s quality. I mean I didn’t expect much from a $26 bag, but it turned out very well made and the golden hardware looks very edgy.

Next, my second clutch bag. This one is from Warehouse. It’s a very beautiful envelope clutch with colorblocking going on. It has cream, burgundy and black, plus the hardware is gold. I absolutely love it. For around $30 I got a fabulous clutch, that is great quality and can fit quite a lot of stuff.

It’s not on sale on Asos, but you can get it here:

And finally, my small crossbody bag from Oasis. I wanted a new black bag for a while, I just couldn’t find the perfect one for me. Some of them look too much like Chanel and I hate fake bags. But when I saw this one I loved it. It has some colorblocking with black, camel and beige, but all of this colors are neutral and easy to style, so this little crossbody looks cute with so many outfits. I wear it alot with sweaters, jeans, my leather jacket and some flat heel boots. But the best thing about this bag is that it can fit so much stuff!!! Honestly, because it’s structured I can shove in my iphone, money, driving license, my keys, little hand cream (because my hands are very dry and whenever I wash them I need to apply some moisturiser), tissues. I can even fit my huge Paul’s Boutique wallet, but I hate it when my bag is so much full.

Today I have realized I haven’t done a fashion post for so long. This is very upsetting for me, so I’ve decided to share with you guys some of my outfit ideas and recent purchases.

I would like to start with this sweatshirt that I absolutely LOVE. It’s one of my favourite Autumn purchases and I adore it. It’s one of those clothing items that you can wear as pj top, but also go out in it. You can easily dress it down or dress it up. I love wearing it by itself, but sometimes I wear a denim shirt underneath. It also looks fab with all kind of chunky necklaces. And OMG I am freaking obsessed with the print!!!!!!!!!!!! The quality is nice and for only $32 this Pull&Bear sweatshirt can be worn absolutely everywhere. And for coffee addicts like myself, you just have to have it

I believe, this one is sold out, but you can definitely find similar ones from the high-street

This is my recent party outfit. It’s very easy to recreate and quite comfy. All you need is a pair of black heels (my booties are KG by Kurt Geiger, got them from Asos ages ago), black tights, black roll neck jumper (mine is from Zara) and finally a statement skirt. I don’t know where this one is from because it was a birthday present. It is quite structured and has elastic waist. I really love black and white in it.

I have found a couple of statement skirts, for you guys:

Another jumper I am loving at the moment is this beautiful black & white one from River Island. The first time I saw it, I knew I had to have it. It is so pretty in person, and I absolutely love the chunky necklace it comes with. Jumpers like this are so easy to wear – they look great with jeans, jeggings and faux leather skirts. Unfortunately, this one is out of stock on RI website. Here are similar jumpers:

River Island Black & White Check Jumper

River Island Geometric Print Necklace Jumper

Mango Geometric Pattern Sweater

And finally, because it’s winter and it’s freezing outside, I popped into Stradivarius and got this two beautiful scarfs. I normaly hate everythng thst says 100% polyester, but theses are super soft and warm.I washed them and they still look the same. So if you need a good scarf, definitely check out Stradvarius. They also have nice jeans and basic t-shirts there.

Let me start by saying that this palette is such a luxurious makeup item. For $85 you get a beautiful palette that looks like a black wallet when it is closed. But when you open it, it reveals a big mirror, a miniature version of Diorshow mascara, six gorgeous eye shadows, two lip plumpers, two lipglosses, face powder and two little brushes. For this kind of price you obviously get luxe products, that are great quality.

This palette makes a perfect present. I personally received it as a Birthday gift from a friend.

The eye shadows in this makeup palette are shimmery. There is a beautiful pearly highlighting color, two brown shades on the left, and on the right you get perfect colors for Fall – pink, taupe color and a gorgeous bugundy.

The lip plumpers are lovely too. They are like lip balms and after you’ve applied them you get cold and tingly sensation on your lips.

The lipstick are very flattering colors – very natural, so they will most likely suit every skin shade.

Powder is great too, however for someone with oily skin like myself, nothing works better than Rimmel’ s Stay Matte powder.

And, finally, the mascara. This miniature Diorshow has a tiny wand, hence it’s perfect for your lower lashes. Also it’s great for trips if you don’t like to carry a full-sized mascara.

Overall, it’s a beautiful high-end product that will make any girl happy. It’s perfect for someone who already has a ton of makeup so this palette would be a luxurious addition to the collection.

New Bag & Wallet From Paul's Boutique

 

$80 PB Maisy Bag40$ PB wallet

I’ve been obsessed with Paul’s Boutique bags for more than 4 years. If you don’t know, it’s a famous UK highstreet brand that does amazing faux leather bags. You get a great quality bag for around $100. I own a couple of their bags, but Maisy is my favourite so far.
I recently got another Maisy. It is beautiful dark green color and has leopard print all over it. I love the combo of gold, green and leopard and it is perfect for Fall and Winter. I also got a matching wallet, because my old one was ruined. I usually get my PB bags from Asos, but the official Paul’s Boutique website also has international delivery now.
Speaking about these two beauties I found them at House of Fraser and they were on sale. The bag was around $65 and the wallet – $40. They also have different colors of these bags.
Here are the links to PB:

I am not one of those bloggers who do a favourites post every month. I usually use the same stuff, so it would be quite boring to read for you guys. But during October I’ve been trying out some new products and some of them are pretty amazing.

Image

Starting with this fab sunglusses I got in the end of August. I love these but I am not a huge sunglasses lover – they always hurt my nose and give me headaches. The reason I got these is because my Accessorize ones got broken, so I purchased these from Asos for only $10! I was shocked when I received them – they felt really well done and super amazing quality. They look very expensive and I get lotsa compliments about these sunnies. Also I think everyone needs a pair of cheap sunglasses so that you won’t be afraid of breaking them. That is the reason I use these most of the time and my Marc Jacobs ones are always at home

Next – my favourite perfume for Fall. I have never included a perfume into my favourites post as far as I remember, but since I’ve been using Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears non-stop during October, I thought I’d mention it. I got it a while ago in Bangkok airport, mine is a 50 ml bottle that has one third of it left now. It’s a sweet but not too overwhelming scent. I know that most people use it in the evining but for me it’s a 24h perfume that is very feminine. I am not very good at describing perfumes, but if you like sweet and quite deep scents, definitely try it out.

Argan Oil Nutrition Infusing Mask by Argan Deluxe is something I have been raving about for a while. Great product for split and dry ends. I have done a separate review on this hair treatment so I am just going to say that it is my all-time favourite mask that makes my hair healthy, shiny and more voluminous.

Going to my makeup favourites, I’d like to mention a product that I’ve talked about in my previous posts – Rimmel’s Kate Matte Lipstick in 107. Perfect burgundy shade, that doesn’t smudge (for more details check out my previous posts).

And finally, my two last makeup products that I adore, both by L’oreal – True Match foundation and concealer.

True Match foundation by L’oreal ( I am in the shade R3-C3) is one of the best drugstore foundations 

I have ever used. It’s better than some high-end ones even. It’s not too cakey, blendable and feels light on my skin, but also gives me a decent amount of coverage. It really does kind of adapt to your skin, which I love. Great for normal to combination skin. 

My last favourite is  True Match concealer. I received it as a present from my aunt. Mine is in the shade ‘3 Cream’ and it’s a very neutral beige color with yellow undertones. When I started using it in August I was very tan and it worked perfect, and now when I am quite pale I still use it and it doesn’t look dark at all. So it adapts to your skin too, just as the foundation. It has quite thick and dry consistency, so I definitely recommend it for concealing blemishes and any kind of redness, but not under eye circles.  Overall, the best concealer I have ever tried, will definitely repurchase it.
