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.

And yep, I fed swans today. This is a very relaxing thing to do btw. These majestic and beautiful creatures are simply mesmerising.

I finally got my packages yesterday. And I am absolutely loving shoes from River Island. It’s only been once that I had a bad shoe experience with RI, but all the shoes that I or my mum purchased from them lately are beautiful and VERY good quality. These stunning black boots I found on sale for only half the price, so I purchased them immediately. I love everything about them – the gold detailing, straps, lovely black leather and the fact that they are insanely comfortable. The only bad thing is that when I first tried them, it turned out the chains were slightly too long, hence awful and very loud sounds while walking. But I fixed it by removing one link from each chain. They still look fab but now in silence.

Second pair of boots I got, are these cognac ones from Aldo. I don’t own much shoes/bags or anything else of this color. I think black is easier to style, however I really liked them. Just like the RI boots, these ones are very nice quality, fit well and are comfy. I feel like it’s fine to get a cheaper faux leather pumps/ballet flats/sandals, but with boots it’s reasonable to pay a bit more and get leather ones because obviously you are wearing them when it’s cold and it’s great to have good quality shoes for winter season.

And finally, the last pair I wanted to show you guys, are these nude pumps that my Grandma gave me as a bday gift. They are also from Aldo. These classic beige heels I am going to wear a lot in Spring because the look great with literally any outfit! I am also thinking of bying the some ones in black patent since I love them so much. Also they are pretty comfortable which is a massive plus, too.

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:

OOTD

I love this casual look! I went out with a friend to grab some coffee, so wanted something comfy but still quite nice. I am wearing my leather sandals from Warehouse, my acid wash jeans are from Lee, the floral shirt is from Topshop, watch Paul’s Boutique and my brown leather bag is from Bershka. Especially I love this shirt – the fabric is so light-weight and so loose.
Hope you guys enjoy my little outfit of the day post πŸ™‚

Hi guys!

Let me start by saying that spring is the season women are usually most excited about. Since the winter is over (FINALLY!!!!!) we can now wear dresses, shorts, skirts, bold blazers and don’t forget about accessories! Honestly, I am so happy to hide all the winter itchy sweaters that make my hair crazy frizzzzzzy πŸ™‚

Okay, so what are the spring essentials? Obviously, cute florals, pastels and brights are always in during the spring time! You can never go wrong with a nice dress with floral print, or a bold bright blazer, or a nice peachy pastel shirt.

The short floral dress and earrings are from Asos, pastel lilac bag is from Paul’s Boutique, the blazer is by Mango, color-block pink & green dress is by Love

Don’t be afraid to mix bright colors! You can add more than one bright color to your outfit.

So, apart from all-time-spring-favourites like pastels, brights and florals, what are the spring 2013 trends?

Black &white patterns are HUUUUUUUUUGEEEE this spring!!! You can see monochrome prints on dresses, blazers, shorts, jeans, bags and what not! My personal favourites are maxi dresses with black & white patterns.

The short dress- Asos, both maxis are by Love, the suit and the necklace are from Topshop

As you can see there are so many paterns, hence hundreds of ways to combine black and white and it will never look boring. I think it’s very elegant too. It’s very simple and chic at the same time.

Next, I would like to mention cut-out clothing. Mainly tops and dresses. I love peekaboo dresses, they look so flirty and springy.

The yellow maxi dress – Asos, the midi dress, the lime dress and the crop top are from Oh My Love, the navy & blue dress is by Asos

Another trend of this spring – bold stripes. They are everywhere, even on handbags! Very casual and chic.

Satchel – Topshop, suit is by Mango, dress – Rare

As you can see, stripes are very versatile and look great with bright colors and denim.

The dress is from Only.

For accessories, they are definitely statement and noticeble. Think big and chunky when picking a new necklace or bracelet. Also don’t forget about a pair of new OMG sunglasses!

Earrings, sunglasses, necklace – Asos

Overall, I would definitely recommend investing in blacks & whites and good jewellery. You will look sophisticated and trendy wearing them, plus you can always keep them for the next season.

And finally shoes. We have plenty to chose from – brights, studs & spikes, gold, cut-outs, straps, buckles, neutrals, etc.

All shoes are from Topshop

My next post is going to be about spring makeup.

Hope you guys enjoyed,

Hugs & kisses

Hi guys,

Yep, I got some new stuff from Asos. Everyone knows how obsessed I am with Asos) I’ve been shopping there for almost five years by know. They have lovely highstreet brands there and also they have free international delivery with no minimum spend! πŸ™‚

For a couple of years now, I’ve been into UK highstreet barnds. I find that British people not only have sexy accent, but amazing and unique sense of style as well))

That’s is why shopping is not quite fun for me without checking out such stores as Topshop, Asos (they only have online version) and River Island.

At Asos they offer many Uk brands, that sometimes are very good deals.However, I find that purchasing US brands from Asos is not reasonable – prices are too high most of the time.

Anyways, I almost forgot why I started this post (as usually))))hehe

This time I purchased three items.

Image

These dogtooth print jeans from River Island I got on sale. The photo is from asos.com if you are wondering.

I find that no other jeans fit me so well as River Island and Mango jeans do. So whenever I want to purchase jeans online I get them from RI (my size is 6) or Mango (I wear 32). They always fit me perfectly.

These lovely pants have gorgeous dogtooth print and they are so soft! Very good quality!

Next thing I got, is this sweater from Oh My Love:

Image

The sweater was also on sale and they only had one item in stock, so i grabbed it the minute I saw it. I loved the color, shoulder detailing and the fabric – it was said it is 100% cotton! I mean it’s such a trouble to find knitwear without polyester these days 😦

Moving to the part, when I got it, I was really excited first. Then I realised it was NOT at all cotton! But it definitely wasn’t fault of Asos team. The tag of this jumper said 100% cotton, but I can tell it was a big lie. I have a couple of cotton sweaters from Mango and they all feel so much different. Plus, when I tried this burgundy sweater on, my hair started acting crazy -it became really frizzy!!!

Another disappointment about this sweater – it was sweaty… Sorry for this kinda details, I know how gross it may sound. It was obvious, someone purchased it, wore it a couple of times, then put the tag back on and returned it to Asos (what kinda person would do that?!?!). That’s why they had only one sweater in stock. My first thought was to send it back. But then I thought, the jumper was really nice for the price, no matter the fabric. So I washed it. Properly. Several times in a row))

After all I am happy I kept it, but this is definitely the last time I am buying something from Oh My Love brand. It’s not nice to lie about the fabric!

And finally the last piece I got from Asos:

Image

May I just say that Asos jewelery is soooooooo unbearably cute πŸ™‚

This lovely little skull stretchy bracelet was originally only $14. And I love the packaging too.

Image

This is how I style it. I am so obsessed with gold, that’s probably because I am Muslim and Muslim girls love everything gold and sparkly))))haha

I love this oversized watch from Paul’s Boutique and I wear it most of the time. I lam obsessed with the combo of this watch with this spikey and skull bracelets, both from Asos.

The sweater I am wearing on this photo is from Topshop, the acid wash jeans are from Lee.

Image

This is the photo I posted on Instagram the day I got my parcel. Overall, I am satisfied with the items I got. If you are wondering about the price, the order was around $100, but because they had 20% off discount code that day, I only payed $80 for this package, which I think is a very good deal.

What do you guys think about online shopping? What are your favourite online stores?

Hey guys,

Just wanted to share with you the ‘outfits’ I got for my Iphone:) hehe

Honestly,cases these days not only preserve your favourite device from scratching, but also make you happy. I love them so much, but I try not to buy too many. After all, how many do you need?

I love this Iphone case from Victoria’s Secret. It’s a beautiful pink color, has gorgeous crystal embellishment and looks very subtle. So if you are a fan of Victoria’s Secret and VS Angels, you are probably in love with it as much as I am. Great quality too.

Image

Another cutie from Victoria’s Secret, this one is from their PINK line. I love this pastel blue color, as well as the print. I must say VS cases not only look great, but also feel great. I mean the quality is very good, even if compared with some more expensive ones.

Image

This Marc by Marc Jacobs case I’ve been raving about for a while. It’s quite pricey (i got it for $50 in Bangkok’s Siam Discovery). I loved the packaging and design from the moment I saw it. I must say, I have a couple of M by MJ accessories, they are all lovely. Unfortunately, this case turned out to be horrible quality. It hasn’t even last me for a month! 😦

Image

Yep, itΒ  got broken 😦 The reason for that – poor quality. The case is super thin and VERY fragile! I think cases are supposed to prevent my iphone from breaking, so since then I try to get the ones that feel more chunky.

Image

The neon pink Essential tpe Iro case I own is very simple. I think the color is statement enough, it’s much prettier in person, than on photo. These cases are amazing quality (i got mine a year ago, and used it alot), the design is not too exciting, though, if you are looking for prints and embellishment.

Image

My most favourite case, the one that I used for more than a year is this neon green case from SwitchEasy:

Image

It’s perfect!!! πŸ™‚ Love love love the color, design and oh the quality is top-notch.

What are your favourite Iphone cases? What brands/websites do you prefer?

Love you guys πŸ™‚
