It's been a long time | Update

A long time since my last post but I'm still here - regardless what it may seem. So, first of all, I really want to apologize for this absence from this space that you all keep following religiously and on a daily basis, hoping to see a new post at least sometime through out the month. Summer time is always a hard time for me because of all the things that I need/want/have to do and, unfortunately, blogging became my second plan or, in this case, no plan at all

Piña Colada Kind Of Summer

The Body Shop, inspired by the cocktail, launched its new line of products - the Piñita Colada collection. Since coconut is a huge deal right now, the brand captured it in the most tropically way possible, Caribbean style and cocktail in hand style. This super exotic collection with a delicious tropical summer scent with pineapple and coconut extracts from the Caribbean comprises 4 different products: shower gel, body butter, body sorbet and body cream. I took the one-time opportunity of a good deal at the store and I managed to get my hands on 3 of this tropical treats for the price of 2.

Hairstyles | Festival Edition

Festival season is officially here and, besides having the perfect outfit, hairstyles are also a huge "thing" at festivals as you can easily see here! From the simplest braid to the most audacious hairdo, this year you have no excuse not to try a new thing with your best accessory - your hair! Today I really want to help you out choosing the best and most trendy hairstyle so here you have, 4 easy to do and beautiful hairstyle ideas for festivals - and to be honest, you can wear them pretty much during the whole year, but specially during Summer.

BOHO BRAIDS are one of my favourite hairstyles for festivals because they are super versatile and you have plenty of options to choose from. You can tie up your whole hair or just a section of it but you'll for sure have a great hairstyle! Another great choice when it comes to festival hairstyles has to be the classic BRAID CROWN because it can last the whole day without being retouched and it totally stand up while your dancing, singing, eating and walking around with your squad.

A super well known hairstyle at the moment is the DOUBLE BUN - yaaas, exactly that one that Kendall Jenner wore to Coachella this year. A little bit bolder and dashing style but definitely super cool and trendy that everyone will love! At last, the also super well known SAMURAI topknot is the perfect option if you are not talented with hairstyles because this one will only take you like 15 seconds and you're ready to go. The best part: you can easily retouch it.

Desi Perkins x Quay Australia

The amazing collection by Quay in collaboration with Desi Perkins is now available for sale - I mean, at the moment is sold out and I'm pretty sure you understand why having in mind you beautiful and trendy are all the 4 pairs designed by Desi (but it will come back soon). Desi Perkins is a beauty guru that runs this Youtube channel and, with her husband, they also run this Youtube channel. I really like her and her videos and I have to say that she slays every social media, specially Instagram (@desiperkins) and snapchat (@desiperkins)! She presented her collection in collaboration with Quay in this video which bring us to sigh and dream about having every single pair of this collection.
HIGH KEY (top photos) cames in two different colours: gold or black. They are the classic pair of aviator glasses with a metal frame and mirrored lenses. They are huge and still, super
versatile and easy to style! Desi said that this pair has to be one of her favourites since see is the hugest fan of aviator sunglasses!
On the bottom left you have ON THE LOW, available in black, with a polycarbonate and metal frame, is probably the most discrete pair from them all even though it's still a super fashionable pair and. On the bottom right you have one of the most wanted pairs, TYSM, a cat eye pair of glasses with a metal and polycarbonate frame in black colour with the lenses in mint. This one is actually one of my favourites from Desi's collection, it's super different and original and I just love the cat eye effect with the mint mirrored lenses. Are you a fan of her work/youtube channel/social media? What are your thoughts on this collection?

MET Gala 2016

Last Monday, May 2, took place in New York the 2016 edition of the Met Gala, the annual fundraising gala for the benefit of Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. Each year's event celebrates the theme of that year's Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. This year's theme was "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" since the upcoming exhibition will focus on the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion. In my opinion, this was one of the greatest galas ever with beautiful gowns, including the LED dress from Claire Danes and plenty of metallics. If you missed out the gala, take a look at this year's red carpet.

Good Things Take Time & Giveaway Winner

Nobody said that having a personal blog is something easy to maintain. When I started this blog, I knew it would involve a lot of my time and free time and I was more than ok with that! But sometimes life's get harder than we imagine and in a blink, we run out of time for the things we like to spend our time on... Don't get me wrong, I know we can always make time for the important things for us but since I'm a freshman in the university, I'm still adapting to that style of life plus all the friends-family-volunteer activities I'm involved with... You can easily imagine what happened!

But after all this time, I'm now back with more strength and a bunch of new ideas for the blog! And to all of you that keep supporting me during this crazy journey that I started (almost) half-year ago, a huge THANK YOU for keep reading and commenting and sharing my posts, I feel overwhelmed with all your love and support!

Hairstyles | 4 Easy Styles

Definitely your hair can be your best accessory and you have like a 1000 ways to style it! The hardest part is, for sure, to choose the best hairstyle for those days when you have like 2 minutes to get ready and don't really want to waste too much time in this task and you just do a boring pony tail and leave! Wait, don't get me wrong... Pony tails are just great BUT there are a plenty more hairstyles that are super easy to recreate and, above all, super trendy... This time I picked out 4 hairstyles that will (or continue to) be a huge trend during this and also the coming season.

The GYM BRAIDS just became a must-have when it comes to pick up a hairstyle - a lot of Hollywood stars already started using them too - because you just need to do 2 side braids and you're done! The HUN (the half bun or half up top knot) will literally take you about 7 seconds to do and you'll look as fabulous as if you had spent like 1 hours doing anything else with your hair (and it's super convenient)... I must confess that this one is my go-to hairstyle for everyday, I just love how it looks
The most well known and coveted hairstyle is definitely the MESSY BUN and the big goal when it comes to it, is to achieve - ironically - the perfect messy bun (yeah, you know exactly what I'm talking about!). On the other hand, the most effortless (still really coveted) hairstyle has to be the famous BEACH WAVES when our hair just screams summer with those beautiful waves - similar to the ones that you get after a day in the beach.

Here you have, 4 easy hairstyle ideas to start using more in your daily life! After giving you some haircuts ideas, now you can add this hairstyles to your hairstyle board (is that a thing?!) and keep getting inspired on what can you do to stop doing the same hairstyle over and over again and start doing something different - after all it's February, where are your New Year's Resolutions?

Melted Lipsticks | Review & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY alert! Right in the bottom of this post... But first, let me tell you a little story... When I first saw the Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipsticks at Sephora, my heart just melted at first sight. I swatched ALL the available collection in my hand and woow, everything was so stunning: the colours, the smoothness, the smell, the applicator... This was just before Christmas so I decided "I'll buy one of them as a Christmas gift from me to myself!" and so I bought the Ruby one! I used it a lot and, right after Christmas, I decided to give myself another gift and bought the Sugar one.
