Bright Colors

Bright colors are in this season. Especially oranges and corals. So here a few of my favorite beauty picks for this trend... :)


From left to right:

-Rings from Asos

OPI polish in Big Hair... Big Nails, they describe it as "a rose pageant peach" (I would describe it as a bright coral-y version of red). It's from the Texas collection, has a sorbet-like finish and goes on really smooth.  

-H&M nail polish in Check Me Out, a bright pink. It's quite bright, so I like to wear it on my feet. 

-Revlon nail polish in 914 Tropical Temptation, a coral color. I like to wear it on both my hands or feet. Revlon polishes are good quality and affordable.

-Estee Lauder lipstick in Venetian Rose, a gorgeous shade of pink that's great for spring and summer. I love wearing it by itself or under the lipgloss. It has a wonderful creamy texture and stays on a long time.

-Beauty Rush lipgloss (from Victoria's Secret) in Delicious Red. I love this lipgloss!! It's shimmery, but the glittery flakes are quite small and I can't even feel them on my lips. And it smells amazing! The only inconvenience is that it's quite sticky. 


P.S. Sorry about the quality of the picture, I took it with my iPod, so the colors aren't exact.

I'm loving the Miss Dior Chérie commercial (by Sofia Coppola)! 
It makes me think of spring... when the flowers start to bloom, when the birds chirp in the trees and when everything's turning green. :)

P.S. The perfume smells amazing!

Florals

Recently I've been seeing so many florals on the runway. I love this trend! And it's perfect for the spring time. Florals stand out, they don't need a lot of accessories and they are easy to pull off. So I went out and picked up a couple items.




I got the floral dress from LaRedoute. I thought that I could wear a jeans jacket (or vest) or a long black cardigan over it. 

I got the pair of shorts and the tank from a local shop. I wore the black tank top with my black boyfriend blazer and a pair of jeans. 
I'm not quite sure what to wear with the shorts yet. Maybe a striped shirt or my blazer. Any suggestions?

I got the umbrella from H&M, but I bought it a while ago and don't know if it's still available. It adds a fun pop of color to any outfit on a rainy day!

The necklace comes from H&M. It has a floral detail on the heart part of it. (and it's a locket too!)



Anyway, those were a couple of my picks for the floral trend. And I'm sorry about the quality of the pictures, I had to take them with my iPod.


I also found this vintage (well, it's not quite vintage) jewelry box at a thrift store the other day. Isn't it cute?

We have no time to stand and stare?

Hello to everyone out there!
I'm just another girl that loves everything fashion and beauty related. I love reading InStyle, Vogue, Elle or Seventeen magazine while sipping a cup of tea, shopping with my friends or spending time with family. 

I love taking walks in the rain, listening to the birds sing and the sweet smell of flowers in the spring,
Roasting marshmallows on the fire and having the warm summer breeze sweep through my hair, 
I love when the trees turn yellow and red, and the sound of the leaves dancing in the wind,
And waking up to a white blanket covering the lawn and the fire crackling in the chimney.

Basically, I love life. :)
