(EN) Pearls. Remember that Monday I talked to you about my beloved pearls? This is how I like to incorporate them in my looks in a subtle way that makes all the difference. I know that this post came a little late but these last three days have been hellish. Tomorrow I will move to another house for my last year internship, I am all cray cray with the many things I have to bring with me (not jk!). This time I am going to Coimbra, yei! Wish me luck in this new stage of my life!
That said, these days I preferred to wear comfortable outfits as I had many errands to do and it is clear that the black had to be strongly present.
(EN) Perfect. Today is Wednesday, so who is an assiduous follower here knows that is beauty day! And those who don´t follow the blog and want to be part of it follow me, you won´t regret. But today I bring you a product that since the first use that stole the role from any other foundation I own. This is the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation (give me Rimmel!). What they claim: "A match so perfect, it's undetectable in any light! Light Perfecting radiance foundation. Traceless coverage and perfectly flawless skin under any light Lasts all day. SPF 18". They promise a lot, uh? In my experience I tell you they fulfill the promises. It's a fluid and light foundation, great for everyday but can easily be built. The smell is a big bonus, has one of the nicest smells. Altogether there are 8 shades from lighter shades to darker shades. I chose two shades that I show in the picture, Light Nude (102) and Soft Beige (200). For my perfect color I like to mix these two. A little note about the price: I paid 4.99 euros for it in Clarel but I've seen at other stores close to 15 euros.
Verdict: This foundation exceeded completely my expectations. It is now part of my day routine. My only advise for anyone who has a combination/oily skin like mine is to apply a matte powder to eliminate excess shine. Would I buy it again? Of course, I am already thinking about buying backups!

(EN) Delicate. I admit that since I was a little girl that I love pearls. Perhaps due to the influence of my mother, she wore the most beautiful pearl necklaces I've ever seen. They are the perfect accessory for a minimalistic style, with a few simple earrings or rings, or for a more fun look, with a statement necklace. Love it! And I don´t know why, during the colder weather I like to wear them more than any other type of jewelry, they are the perfect piece for my minimalistic outfits. So this week I leave you with some beautiful inspirations of how to wear pearls.
Lolita. Maybe you´ll be surprised by this kind of post, but truth be told, I always felt a little attracted to Japanese culture more specifically with fashion, well, this is a fashion blog. The "Lolita" style is for me one of the most peculiar and this is what I bring to you today. I know it isn´t everyone´s cup of tea, but fashion isn´t only what we see on the big brands and ready-to-wear stores, fashion also comes from another cultures that we may not know well.
To give you a little more about this culture, I joined with Tidebuy, an online store that sells Lolita dresses at affordable prices and with good quality. With a wide variety of dresses of this style that you will surely like. From Gothic Lolita dresses, white Lolita dresses, pink Lolita dresses, classic Lolita dresses, I think you get the idea. As I said, for all tastes. To get a better sense of what I'm talking about, I leave you with a selection of Tidebuy Lolita dresses I liked the most and don´t forget to enter the links to see a description of each dress in more detail.

(EN) Cold. The weather is really changing. I don´t know if I'm ready for it. Just last week I was paying some visits (although short ones) to the beach and this week I already wrap in warm sweaters. But we have to see the positive side: the sweaters are beautiful so what is there left to do is enjoy it while it is just cold and we don´t have to walk with our umbrellas and warm coats. Let's enjoy this fall to dig up all those cute and comfortable sweaters and though we don´t like to admit it, we had already missed wear them.
(EN) Choice. You don´t know how happy I was when I discovered this online store: www.tidebuy.com. Just look at the pieces I show in here, completely me! Well, the link I have here today is the link for an online store that sells clothing and accessories with a wide variety of choice. And I tell you that I was completely crazy when I saw that the size of the pieces is not one size, there are various sizes and in addition they help you choose the right one with measurements. Perfect, isn´t it? Another aspect that you doesn´t have to worry about is shipping. They ship worldwide and it isn´t too expensive. Another aspect that I like a lot is the fact that they accept returns. Pretend you receive the item at home and it doesn´t fit or even you don´t like it. It doesn´t matter, don´t take off the tags and contact the Customer Service.
The more time I spend wandering the site more will I have to buy everything. Believe that I will soon place an order and I assure you it will be a big one!
Maxi. I don´t know why I didn´t show you this dress before. Not only is my favorite dress ever as it suits any situation, literally. I wore it more often than I want to admit. So, today I show you a perfect option for this transition weather (it isn´t Summer, it isn´t Autumn, baaaah!) a perfect look and super comfortable for a trip to the mall or a coffee with friends. And of course, I had to include my favorite boots ever!
(EN) Special. If there's one thing I like is to feel special in all my outfits. But I confess that in special occasions I like to feel that little extra. A stunning dress, different, one that tells a story. That's what I am looking for, leave a statement on the party with our personal style, because let's be truthful, it´s time to take (selfiessssss!) lots of photographs, so the memory of our dress is an important thing. Who doesn´t like to feel more special once in a while, even for just a few hours? I love it! So I was super happy when I got to know this online store: www.avivadress.co.uk. It is the answer to all my problems of finding the perfect dress for the occasion in question! Believe me, there are dresses to suit all tastes and pockets.
Starting at the beginning: you should be questioning, but after all what is it? An online store? If you thought it that´s correct. They are an online store specializing in wedding, prom and evening dresses. Almost every day great deals appears on the site so I assure you that for sure you will adore and fall in love with one (or more) dress with a very tempting and friend of any pocket, especially when there is the offer of free shipping when you spend a certain value on items at the online store. And let's look at the dresses: just look at some of the styles that are sold, from formal dresses to beautiful wedding dresses and let me tell you, completely body friendly, long prom dresses, evening dresses and cocktail dresses. No matter what body type you have because here you won´t have any problem choosing one that fits perfectly in both of your body and style. Problems with the colors don´t exist (only with choosing, so many options! Not JK!), since they have the classic black, white, to baby blue and mint you´ll certainly find the right color for that special event you want to go perfect. And if you are a bride, please, please make a visit to the part of the wedding dresses, I tell you, I wish I was a bride just to wear one of these, believe me. Are you not a bride? But you have to go to a wedding? So don´t despair, here you could find that formal dress to make that one frenemy jealous! And to my younger readers: need the perfect prom dress to leave your crush breathless? Then see the section of prom dresses and if you want my opinion, see the long dresses for a more sophisticated look.
So: SAY YES TO THE DRESS!

Rain. When last week I told you that I love autumn, was certainly not talking about the part when it rains cats and dogs. I don´t miss my frizzy hair, the wet clothes and neither the messy makeup. But there is one thing I was missing: boots! They are my best friends and I currently own over 15 pairs (upssssssss). And I am such a good friend that I leave you some inspirations to brighten your day!
Light. This week I took advantage of the last sunny days (when I'm on vacation) to use and abuse the light fabrics and colors. What seems like a simple gray skirt is indeed a beautiful strap dress (and it only cost me 2 euros!!) and I decided to put a baby blue top over to create more texture to the look. A super casual and basic outfit upgraded with the right accessories.
PS- I am loving wearing dresses with sneakers and cute socks!
Setting. After talking about and a primer and a foundation, makes all the logic talk about pressed powder, more properly the one who´s in everyone’s mouths: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. After applying the foundation and the concealor, it is necessary to setting them to increase their durability. This is where the pressed powders appear. This claims reducing the appearance of pores and to ensure a matte finish to the skin throughout the day. Despite being a great pressed powder, it doesn´t last all day but it has a nice size to put in the purse and touch up when needed. I love this product, it has become a holy grail for me. Not only helps removing the oiliness that I have in abundance in my T-zone as it helps my foundation to stick in place during the day. If you have oily skin this is a product you will want. If perhaps you have dry skin it will dry out the skin even more.
The verdict: worth the hype? Totally!
Details. I think a good manicure makes all the difference in the beauty of a woman. What´s the point of being well dressed if we skip these little things? Even only with a good nude, nails have to be well done. During these holidays, maybe because I can´t have my nails with any nail polish during my internship (future Nurse and the last horrifying year), I preferred the nail art instead of a simple nail polish. Attention, nothing too extravagant to avoid looking ridiculous, but simple things like these that I show you today.
Tell me, how do you prefer your nails?
