Hello my loves!

I’ve been soooooo busy lately with work and I also got sick. So no when I am home being sick and working, I thought I could do another ‘top 3’ post. I love these posts coz it is always such a challenge to choose between a bunch of products, the ones that you really really like. Not only in terms of color, but also quality, consistency, pigmentation, staying powers, etc. But most importantly, these do not break me out.

This time it was actually pretty easy to choose.  Obviously, I haven’t tried all the blushes out there, but from what I tried (a pretty decent amount), these are the best.

First, the double blush. I’ve used it soooo much, even the name has wiped off 🙂 It’s from Vivienne Sabo. You guys know, it’s one of my favourite brands. Also this blush in shade 12 I’ve included to the giveaway I hosted a couple of months ago. Both colors can be used separately, but I prefer blending them. The texture is very creamy and makes my skin so soft.  This blush has matte finish to it. I feel like this product is worth so much more than $5. It is even better than 95% of high-end blushes! You get 2x 3,5g of excellent product for around $5.

Second, MAC blush. I’ve been raving about a perfect peachy/coral shade for a couple of months now and MAC’s sheertone blush in ‘Peaches’ is amazing. This blush is slightly more dry than the first one, but it’s very good too. It has decent staying powers, matte finish and no smell. Like pretty much any other MAC product, I love it. You get 6g of product for around $20.

And finally the third blush is from Rimmel. I love these little blushes, the only bad side – I wish the color range was more vast, coz they only have 4-5 shades and that’s it. Speaking about the quality, it’s lovely, the color is a perfect pink, stays on well, very pigmented, buildable. The shade is ‘020 Pink Rose’. This blush has a beautiful subtle shimmer to it. You get 3g of product for around $5.

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.

My next post is going to be about spring makeup.

Hope you guys enjoyed,

Hugs & kisses

Hi guys!

I am so in love with my nails! I am wearing navy matte nailpolish with a little bit of gold. I know, it’s spring and there are so many pretty pastels and neons out there, but I am a 100% a dark nailpolish girl 🙂

And since it’s getting warmer, I got a pair of new shoes. They are comfy, versatile and cute. But the best part about them is that they are glittery and studded at the same time!

The studs are gold, which I love!!! And the lining is just adorable. I think Betsey Johnson flats are lovely!

What do you guys think?

Hugs 🙂
