2020 mental goals and cool chick style

2020 mental goals and cool chick style

SHOP THE LOOK: blouse / jeans / coat / boots 

Hey peeps this is my first blog post in 2020.

January was quite a very slow month for me. I didn’t set any specific goals or resolution. And let everything transform slowly into what feels right, if you understand what I am saying. But I really have a feeling that this year will be a good one. Even if it isn’t, I will try my best to make it a year to be remembered. By the way, the last 2 years weren’t the best year for me in general. That’s why I hope this year will be better.

Furthermore, I want work on my negative habits like running away from my problems. Therefore, I want to tackle my problems and face anything that happens after. Unfortunately, I am also a person that isn’t brave enough to take further steps to achieve a certain goal because I am afraid of the ‚failure‘ but I want to be more confident with the possibility of winning or even failure instead of what ifs. To put it in a nutshell, this year will be the year of taking more chances and facing outcomes and making the best out of it. What are your goals for this year? Or lifetime goals?

Okay now let’s talk about the outfit, this was the first shooting that I had at the beginning of Jan. I was going with a cool chick kind of vibes. For this look, I wore a striped blouse where I tuck in the half in my ankle cut straight blue jeans. Then I paired it with some killer square toed boots which we will see more in my lookbooks and in this 2020’s fashion season. At the end, I complete the look with my favorite grey coat which I wear all the time.

Have you seen my new hair yet?! Lets talk about my braids, it’s been years where I wore braids and twists, my mum used to install them for me all the time. In addition, I wanted to change my look up a bit and didn’t  want to be bothered with my hair everyday. Also, I can style my hair and always look effortless, isn’t it a lifetime goal for every girl?

See you in the next post!

The NYE fashion recipe

The NYE fashion recipe

This year and a decade are over, so it is time to celebrate. Therefore, I created my New Year’s Eve fashion must-haves (my recipe). By the way, you can use this fashion ‘recipe’ for an upcoming party too.

Glitter & bold nails

Don’t be surprised if I talk much about silver clothing and sparkly things. Here I am wearing glittery nails and on the other photo, I have colored french manicure. You can never go wrong with shiny or colored nails.

The perfect NYE dress

When I think about the perfect dress, I always envision silver, sparkly or black satin or velvet dresses. In these pictures I am wearing the Birdie dress by Weekday, it is a long-sleeved midi dress which I paired with white strappy heels. Here I focused on light makeup and the colors black and white. By the way, the dress is also available in silver. 😉

Glitter stockings

Glitter stockings can make a simple, minimalistic dress or skirt interesting and party appropriate. And since everything’s about glitter.. why not?

Bold eye makeup

You can never go wrong with bold eye makeup. Here’s one where I focused on the color blue. Also, this blue eye shadow is by Essence in 06. And a few weeks ago I created a gold smoky eyeshadow look which I featured on this previous blog post. I have been playing with different makeup looks lately and I really hope I can inspire you with yours. 😉

Gold jewelry 

If you are not a makeup person or you just happen to love jewelry (and makeup). Then you can always accessorize your outfit with your favorite necklaces, earrings or rings. Here I am wearing a vintage wave necklace. And this square pendant necklace by oNecklace. Besides, they offer personalized jewelry. So please check them out!

Here I am wearing personalized earrings by oNecklace too ;-).

NYE shoes

I don’t really go crazy with shoes when I wear a dress, I either go with black ankle boots or sandals. And if my outfit is on the simple side I would go with sparkly shoes or wear bolder colors.

Mini bags

What will an NYE fashion outfit be without the matching bag? Here are two bags that I love so much. Both are very similar and can be worn on the shoulders and are made of nylon and therefore durable. Also, I think mini bags and baguette bags will stay in 2020 and will not go anywhere. And if you want your bag to catch everyone’s attention, you can always go with a sparkly one.

How many times have  I said sparkly or glittery? Hehe 😉

I hope I could inspire you for your own NYE look.

Festive makeup

The festive season is my favorite time of year because I get to spend it with my loved ones and eat delicious food.

Because I enjoy this season so much, here’s a smokey-glittery eye makeup that I will be rocking the whole time. First of all, I apply my Nars concealer in the color ‘Amande’ under my eyes and around the mouth area to balance my skin tone. After that, I contour with the darker shade in the color ‘Dark Coffee‘ and focus on my cheekbone area to give the dimension back to my face.

Then I apply translucent powder on my whole face to remove the shine and set my concealer.

Now, we are moving on to the eye makeup. Firstly, I utilize the black eyeshadow on the outer V and the crease area as the base. Then I use ‘Spirit’ from the Latte Palette by Bareminerals, as the transitioning color to soften the black eyeshadow that I previously applied. Furthermore, the brown color connects the brighter color that I’ll use now. ‘Firefly’ is the bright color which is also in the palette. Moreover, it is a shimmery gold that makes every eye color pop.  I put this on my eyelid and my inner eye corner. Finally, I enhance my eyebrows with Sante’s dark eyeshadow and finish the look off with a bit of brown liquid lipstick by NXY and a clear gloss on the lips.

CONCEALER: Nars – Amande / Dark Coffee
EYEBROWS: Sante (Rosy Shade Palette) – dark brown color
EYESHADOW: Bareminerals (Gen Nude palette – Latte) – Firefly (gold) / Spirit (brown)
black eyeshadow: Terra Naturi – Onyx black (sold out!) /similar 
BLUSH: Bareminerals – You had me at Merlot 
HIGHLIGHTER: Bareminerals (Gen Nude -Latte) – Destiny
POWDER: Alverde – Translucent powder
MASCARA: Maybelline – Lash Sensational
LIPSTICK: NYX – Teddy & Essence clear gloss

I hope you like this festive makeup and see you in the next post!

Italy photo diary 2019

Italy photo diary 2019

Whenever I travel, I always feel inspired to collect pictures and summarize the beautiful moments of the trip.

9th of October

After our wedding (I will still make a post about it), we wanted to have a little honeymoon getaway and decided to drive to Italy. To explore the 5 villages ( Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore). It took us over 9 hours to arrive in La Spezia. Our Airbnb crib was very clean and much beautiful than expected. On the first evening, we didn’t see much of the city and went to a Pizzeria which was recommended by our Airbnb host -thank you again, Margarita! We ordered Pizza and it was so yummy!!

10th of October

We stayed in La Spezia and explored the city. We walked a loooot but the weather was beautiful! After that, we headed off to Porto Venere where we had the most beautiful view and sunset ever. Then the evening was completed with a delicious Ligurian dinner.

11th of October

Jan and I drove by car to Monterosso and had a relaxed beach day. Monterosso is the first of the 5 villages that we visited.

12th of October

The first time on a boat. We explored the two of the (5) Cinque Terre villages. Our first stop was at Manarola and the last at Riomaggiore. In the cities, we walked a lot, spent much time on the beach, drank coffee and had lunch. Finally, our evening was completed with a visit to the infamous  Nessun Dorma where we had a large food platter and an amazing view.

13th of October

After yesterday’s exhausting day, we had a chilled beach day at Baia Blu. Baia Blu is normally a private beach but only a few people were there and we enjoyed the quietness and the beauty of the sea.

14th of October

We finally got to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

15th of October

It was a rainy and grey day but we decided to see the last villages by train and bus. Our first stop was at Corniglia, a little village that has tiny alleys. Also, we drank good wine because Corniglia is known for its vineyards. It is the only village that didn’t have a beach.

Finally, we visited Vernazza and ate ice cream and had delicious dinner there.

16th of October

Sadly… it’s time to say goodbye, but first a quick stop in Como. The weather was beautiful and I could still wear a summer dress. We didn’t stay long and just had lunch there.

The autumnal wishlist

The autumnal wishlist

Oh dear, I never thought that I would love this year’s autumn/fall fashion. Normally, I don’t enjoy fall fashion that much due to the dark colors and the whole layering of clothing that comes with it. By the way, I am a spring/summer person because I can’t get enough of floral dresses and skirts.

The reason why I changed my mind is that many stores have come out with lovely pieces which I can see myself rocking until it’s winter season.

Therefore, I made an autumnal wishlist with pieces which you’ll hopefully like for these golden months. You can always use similar things from your wardrobe. I focused on classic & trendy pieces like leather jackets/blouses which I would pair with my favorite blue jeans. Or checked thick, wool blouses that give you a cozy ‘Canadian vibe’. Autumn and winter season will be the year of biker jackets. In addition, they make any outfit look very cool. And they’re pretty affordable if you don’t choose real leather and go with faux fur. 😉

I hope you like the list & see you in the next post!
