Fashion Trend | Pyton, Snake prints

21 February 2014

LISTENS : ♪ AC/DC – YOU SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG





Hi dolls ! There are a few trends that have been very popular these past seasons. Like the holographic one, the snake/python prints are still quite a strong element of this season. This is a look that can be easily styled this Winter or next Spring/Summer on a clutch or shoes. For the most daring ones there is the jacket option that I really love. It's a gorgeous way to add some serious edge to a simple outfit. For the shy fashionistas out there, you can still rock some details like bracelets or rings.

I hope you guys enjoyed, let me know if you love this trend as well or if you have another one you are looking forward to styling ! Have a good weekend x


Wish List 56 | French Casual

17 February 2014

LISTENS : ♪ BEST COAST – WHEN I'M WITH YOU





Hi little criminals ! I took a few days off blogging and it felt good. Today I'm back with the kind of look I love the most : casual French stripes. It must sound cliche, but I love my stripes ! All year long, I really enjoy wearing them on a large T-shirt with red lips or a very nude makeup look, it's so chic. This look is very put together but effortless as well, very Parisian I must say. 

These flats from Nasty Gal are simply amazing and I really need to grab some for myself ! The top is very light but the jacket will keep you warm. The T-shirts from H&M are worth the purchase, the quality is superb, I have several of them for years now and after a thousand washes, they still feel great !

This is it for today, I hope you have a good week x


Wish List 55 | Sequin Spring (New Look, Nelly, Boohoo)

12 February 2014

LISTENS : ♪ ARCTIC MONKEYS – DO I WANNA KNOW ?




I've seen this sequin skirt in a shop in Ireland and I must say I fell in love with it. I really need to grab it when I go back. Sequin is always a good idea and today's outfit is a way to wear it on a casual, daily basis. You don't need to wait for the Holidays or Valentine's day to please yourself. Rock the style you like the way you like. Here is how I'd wear it ! 


Beauty Review | Kiko Cosmetics (Soft focus concealer, full coverage concealer)

9 February 2014

LISTENS : ♪ ARCTIC MONKEYS – WHY DO ONLY YOU CALL ME WHEN YOU'RE HIGH ?




Hi dolls ! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you must already know that last month I bought these two Kiko Cosmetic concealers. I am in this endless search for the perfect concealer and I though since a lot of girls in my College are raving about Kiko, I should give it a try. I have been using these two products everyday since I bought them and I kind of regret I spent the money. Not that they are really bad, they are pretty good, but for the same price I could have bought some Gemey Maybelline products that work way better for me. Still, I am using them and here is what I think !



I wanted to try this kind of pen for a long time and I actually like this one, it's very light and the texture blends nicely. The only real problem is that the lightest shade is a little too dark for the kind of look I wear. I like to have my under eye lighter, like Kim Kardashian, and this shade is the same as my actual skin tone (if not darker). But if you are a woman of colour, you'll find what you need at Kiko, which is nice for a change !


This concealer is alright. The coverage is not that full but the texture is easy to work with the fingers. I am still going to use it because the shade is really nice and the size makes it easy to travel with. The packaging of both products is amazing, it feels more expensive that it actually is. These two concealers are nice products that anyone could enjoy, it's not just as good as I wished it would be. That's just my opinion, I have friends that are in love with the brand.

So at the end of the day, I feel like I didn't need to purchase these two products because I already had concealers that were doing the same job. It's not that they are bad at all, they are quite nice, but I didn't fall in love with them. However, I am still going to use them because they are still lovely to use on a daily basis. 

I hope you guys enjoyed, do you own products from Kiko ? What do you think of them ?

Beauty Review | Dry skin perfect foundation with a sponge (Beauty Blender Dupe)

5 February 2014

LISTENS : ♪ MASSIVE ATTACK – PARADISE CIRCUS





I've tried so many different foundations and all of them (even the so-called "perfect for dry skin") always seemed not to work. After a little research I realized that the problem might come from my brushes. I have the Real Techniques brushes that are simply amazing, but for the very dry skins like mine, using a brush can actually irritate it and accentuate any dry patches. This why I turned to the Beauty Blender or its dupe: any regular sponge. Mine comes from Aliexpress and cost me less than 2€. I have been using it since December and I am very happy with it.

How to use it :
• Always use your sponge damp. Otherwise you are not going to get anything good from it.
• Bounce it on your skin (at first it will feel long and maybe annoying but it gets easier and faster with practice)
• Cold water is the best for a natural finish (the bounce movement and cold water will give your skin a fresh feeling and also help closing your pores)
• Make sure to use it clean

What I think :
• Cheap
• Easy to use
• Flawless finish
• Easy to build coverage
• Covers patches and breakouts.

So this is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed. Let me know if you use a sponge as well and if you love it or not. Have a good day dolls !

Wish List 54 | The Girl Next Door

3 February 2014

LISTENS : ♪ PIXES– HEY





Hi dolls ! Valentine's day is on its way and here is another outfit for that special night. This is the kind of look I would wear on a first date. When you just start going out with a guy, you don't want to dress "bam ! in your face !" cause it could be quite intimidating. Be yourself, always, but don't try too hard. This dress is very simple and will fit any type of bodies, curvy or not. Go easy on the accessories and if you are not comfortable wearing heels, then avoid them. Falling in front of your date is the last thing you want to happen. I recommend a nude lipstick, avoid bold colours if you want to kiss your date ;)

This is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed. I've changed the design of the blog a little, let me know what you think ! Have a good day x
