Love u guys!!!

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

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™‚

Hello everyone,

First of all I wanted to remind you guys that the giveaway is closing up on January 25th, so hurry if you want to enter. You still have a chance to win!!! The rules are easy – follow me on Instagram, follow, comment and like this blog.

So the winner is going to get some of my all-time favourite beauty products:

Image

The winner gets bronzer, blush, mascara, lipstick in peachy-pink color, brow gel – all from Vivienne Sabo, which is an amazing French makeup brand. Also eyeshadow and highlighter/eyeshadow from Sephora and Rimmel’s Kate lipstick in nude color.

On weekend I am going to announce the lucky winner. And the giveaway is international btw

Also I wanted to mention, that one of the reasons I haven’t posted for a while is because I’ve been pretty busy with my photoshoot. I was not only a model, but I also did my hair and makeup, which I am super excited about:)

So yesterday the photographer contacted me saying the first photo was ready!

Image

I was a bit nervous because it was my first real photoshoot, but it all turned out to be so much fun!!!

The makeup I used: Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation, Maybelline Affinitone concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, for my brows I used color ‘Tease’ from Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette, Vivienne Sabo’s Coup De Genie Eyebrow pencil in 001 to create a perfect arch and Fixateur Eyebrow gel also from Vivienne Sabo.

For my eyes I used: ‘Bootycall’ from Naked2 palette on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, as well as a little bit of ‘Verve’. On my lids I put ‘YDK’ and ‘Snakebite’. I usually use more of ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Chopper’, but this time I wanted a more drammatic look, so I used darker shades. For my outer corner of the eye I used ‘Busted’, which is a gorgeous shimmery dark brown color. For my crease I used a beautiful burgundy-ish color (if you can say that, it’s a shimmery mixture of burgundy, purple and brown) from Vivienne Sabo’s eyeshadow quad in 66. Instead of an eyeliner I used ‘Blackout’ from Naked2.

On my lower lash line I applied Maybelline’s Master Smoky shadow-pencil in ‘Smoky Chocolate’ and a little bit of ‘Busted’ on top of that. For my waterline I used a cheap 1$ white pencil, you can basically use any one you like, mine is from Golden Rose. I don’t use white pencils too much, but because I didn’t manage to get a good sleep before the photoshoot, I had to apply it. As for the mascara, I used, ‘Diva’s Lashes’ from Pupa.

Next step – bronzer. I used ‘Voyage en Provance’ from Vivienne Sabo (the same one I got for the giveaway). It’s not too shimmery, not orange at all. It makes my skin really soft and smells amazing. Then goes blush, mine also from Vivienne Sabo ‘Teinte Delicate’ in 12 (the winner gets one too).

Also a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, cupid’s bow and cheek bones. I used ‘Mineralize Skinfinish’ in soft and gentle from Mac. And to set my makeup I used Urban Decay’s De Slick setting spray because my skin is oily. But if you have dry to normal skin, you probably can skip that part.

Okay, for my lips I used a cheap nude pink pencil from Flormar, my favourite lipstick ever ‘Charme de Vous’ in 112 from Vivienne Sabo (the lucky winner gets it too) and on top of that I used the best lipgloss ever ‘Precious Pink Jewels’ from Sephora. It makes my lipstick last for good 3-4 hours, is not sticky at all! Very lightweight on my lips, smells great and has a perfect applicator.

That’s it for my makeup πŸ™‚ I know, it might sound complicated, but it isn’t. It took me around 35 minutes to do it.

For my hair I used my curling wand from Babyliss. I love it so much!

On my nails I got ‘Xtreme Wear’ nailpolish in ‘Black Out’ from Sally Hansen.

For my outfit (the part of it you can see on the photo), I am wearing a basic black tee from Zara, black leather jacket from Religion, my earrings are no-name, they are from a local store, my watch is from Paul’s Boutique (love it to death))) and my both bracelets are from Asos.

Hope u guys like it πŸ™‚

Hey guys,

It is the time of the year, when you can just stop for a minute and appreciate the value of friends and family, realize how blessed you are to have these amazing people in your life. When you get a gift, it’s not just something material. By giving something this person shows that he/she cares about you. Isn’t that the most wonderful thing in the world, to know that someone loves you and cares for you?)

That is why I’ve been SUPER excited about the gifts this year. When most of your friends are far away from you, it’s important to know they still remember about you, and show them your love too.

IMG_2918

As you can see I got some makeup, which I think is always a great present.

IMG_2922

First of all, this makeup kit. It’s from the amazing Italian makeup brand Pupa. I’ve owned a couple of items by Pupa, and they’ve always been very good quality.

IMG_2927

This particular kit in bronze color (they also have it in black, as far as I know) contains a cute little makeup bag, eyeshadow quad and an eye pencil.

IMG_2936IMG_2931

I am particularly excited about this pencil. It’s shimmery and looks gorgeous on your lower lash line.

The eyeshadow quad is okay. I mean the colors are nice , I just wish Pupa eyeshadows were as pigmented and creamy as my Naked2 palette.

IMG_2941IMG_2946IMG_2938

I also got this lovely bronzing powder/highlighter. It’s from Giordani Gold.

I love the packaging too – it has a little snake on it.

I think, it’s too shimmery to use as a bronzer, but it’s a nice highlighter. It reminds me a lot of Mac’s mineralize skinfinish in ‘soft and gentle’.

IMG_2951

This is how it looks on my skin.

The last thing I got makeup-wise, is this base coat nailpolish:

IMG_2977

It’s called P2Β  Ridgefiller, it’s a German brand. It says ‘Ridgefiller with silk powder for a smooth nail surface’. My friend Katy, who lives in Munich sent it to me, she says it works great for her, so I’m sure I’m gonna love it. I received the package today, so I haven’t used it yet.

IMG_2971

She also got me this ADORABLEΒ  cup πŸ™‚ OMG I am so obsessed with it. Thank you, Katy, I love you so much!

IMG_296773210670_LR

My cousin Medeya sent me a lovely sweater from Mango. I love Mango, it’s basically one of my favourite brands. And this sweater is soft, warm, loose and very very cozy – exactly what you need for chilly winter days. And it’s very versatile too – you can pair it with all sort of boots, jeans, accessories, jewellery, etc. So thank you Medeya, I love you and I love the gifts you give me πŸ™‚

And finally, I wanted to reming you guys about the giveaway!!!

I got something new for it:

IMG_2958IMG_2956

I loved this Sephora highlighter/eyeshadow so much, that is why I also got it for the lucky winner πŸ˜‰

If you want to enter this giveaway, just follow me on Instagram, follow, like and comment this blog.

Good luck!)

Happy New Year to all of you guys!!!!! I am super excited and I hope all of our dreams will come true in 2013 πŸ™‚

I must say, that for me the year has started really well (except for the fact that I am sick, but got sick in 2012, so it doesn’t count)))

Image

Look what my mum gave me πŸ™‚ I luv luv luv chocolate

So these couple of days I’ve been enjoying my junk food and watching my new favourite TV Show. And OMG I’m really obssesed with it!!!!! If you enjoyed ‘the Tudors’ and ‘the Borgias’, you are definitely gonna like this one

Image

It’s called ‘Magnificent Century’ and it’s about the life of the Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, traditions of the Ottoman Empire and Muslim world of that time. This Turkish TV series also shows us women living in harem, their never-ending struggle for Sultan’s love and attention. As my Turkish is pretty horrible, I watch it with English subtitles. I do recommend it because it’s very entertaining and also because it’s historical, you can learn something new.

Image

For those of you guys who are not yet convinced to watch this amazing TV Show :

Image

Image

Image

Let’s face it, Turkish actor/model Burak Ozcivit is reason enough to start watching it right now)) Best history class ever πŸ˜‰

Hugs

Image

Remember me saying I’m going to show you the dress after alterations and also the way I’ve decided to accessorize it? Here it is. Hope you guys like it πŸ™‚

Image

Image

Image

The dress has awesome golden spikesΒ  on the shoulders, which I’m really obsessed with. Looks really unique, I think. Love stuff that is feminine but edgy at the same time.

Image

For my shoes I was wearing my leopard booties, also from ASOS (love this brand)). They are not only cute, but unexpectedly comfy too.

Image

My favourite clutch from Aldo. Soooo versatile!

Image

As for my arm candy, I was wearing my amazing Paul’s Boutique watch, which I’ve been wearing pretty much everyday, since I got it. On my nails I have one of my favourite nail polishes ever – 762 Plum Attraction by Revlon.

Image

Guess who this is? My GORGEOUS mum=)

Image

Sooooo pretty!!! And I love her dress.
