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 🙂

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

First of all, let me just say that this nail polish from Sally Hansen is wicked!!! I’ve been into glittery nail polishes for a while now, but this one is so unique to me.

Image

Speaking about my purchases, this bag is something I’ve wanted for a while. I have a decent collection of Paul’s Boutique handbags, but this Molly bag is GORGEOUS. It’s exclusive to Asos, so that’s where I got it from. It’s perfect size, made of great quality faux leather and has gold detailing, which I love. But what you notice straight off after laying your eyes on the bag is this crazy charm.

Image

It looks fabulous without the charm too. I don’t understand why some people say, this London-based brand is tacky. It’s quite edgy and bold, but I am sure there are people, who can pull it off.

Image

Okay this Master Smoky shadow-pencil from Maybelline is great! It’s cheap but the quality is amazing. I have very sensitive eyes and eyelids, but this one works perfectly for me. I think with my skin and hair color, brown eye pencils look better on me, than black ones, so I got this in color ‘Smoky Chocolate’.

Image

So this product can be used as a pencial and as an eyeshadow. Just draw a thick line and smudge it out to create an eyeshadow effect.

U guys probably know, how much I adore Watson’s and their exclusive products. Vivienne Sabo is a makeup brand that u can only purchase at ur local Watson’s, as far as I know. VS is such an amazing brand, that offers stunning products for VERY afforfable prices. I love their lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, etc. So the last Sunday when I went to Watson’s I got two eyeliners from Vivienne Sabo in ‘Chocolat’ (I love brown, remember)) and ‘Carbon’ (every girl needs a black eyeliner). And guess what? I got a gorgeous Vivienne Sabo powder as a gift. It’s silky and smells good. It actually reminds me a lot of my Dolce&Gabbana powder, but hey it’s so much more affordable!!!! 🙂

Luckily, I was allowed to pick the color, so I got the darkest one, which is pretty light anyway. I mean the bad thing about Vivienne Sabo is that they have really light, even pinky colors in terms of their foundations, concealers and powders. I have no idea how this fact can be explained, maybe it’s becuse the brand is French and French women have mostly fair skin…

The packaging is sleek and pretty.

Here come my new booties from one of my favourite UK brands River Island. I got them for half the price and I am pretty happy with them. I love how soft the leather is, the studs and buckles.

Image

See? Told you there were cuties=)

Speaking about the sad part, i have no idea, where is my previous River Island order. It’s been almost 20 days, since I placed it. I’ve been contacting RI customer care team, but no one is replying, which is upsetting. I hope my jeans have not been lost 😦

Do you understand why I am so sad now?)

And look who I’ve seen wearing  graffity print RI jeggings:

Yeap, it’s British singer Cher Lloyd.

So yeah, I am very upset that my parcel isn’t coming. And when I’m upset I get…

Nutella is the best therapist, everyone knows that)

Let’s just hope I get my jeans soon! fingers crossed:)
