SPRING COLORS ft. BONOBOS ♡ [part1]

Hello my loves! I hope that life is treating you amazing this month. I now that I've been MIA for so long, but my schedule has been so overwhelming lately. I can barely find the time to breathe properly so I hope you can excuse my absence. My finals are right around the corner and I just can't wait (#not). 
Anyway, today I wanted to lighten up the mood a little and talk about some spring trends and colors. I teamed up with Bonobos to create some spring His & Hers outfits and share them with you. In case you haven't heard of them, Bonobos.com is the place to visit if you are looking for high quality fashion forward menswear. 
For this project, I was inspired by some men's outfits that they put together and I styled some for the girls myself, based mostly on my favorite color palette for spring. I know that everyone has a different perspective when it comes to spring. During the winter, we all tend to gravitate towards darker colors but, when the weather starts to get warm, we start drifting a bit. 

Some prefer prints, some prefer pastels, some neons and some just like to stick to the good ol' neutrals. Personally, I tend to stick to the neutrals and add a pop of color or mix n' match some prints. It's all about balance in my book. Lucky for me, the trendiest colors this spring are all I have in my closet! I just adore denim, dusty pink and khaki!
The first male outfit is very laid back and I love how they paired the stripes with the bandana and the different hues of blue.
Just peachy ♥
To go with it, I decided to play with denim on denim and add some pops of red. That could easily work with blush as well, if you're not feeling particularly bold. I like how we stick to the classic blue and red but, also, how it's fashionable and not boring at all. As for the embellished denim, you know it holds a special place in my heart. Also, how awesome are those mules?
Let's be honest here. Is there anything more basic atm than a khaki bomber? Probably not. But it's just so versatile and it looks so good. We're not used to seeing it paired with blue, so that's a nice change and I prefer the patterned bermuda shorts from the plain old denim.
Ever just the same...
Don't you just love the jeans on the hers outfit? The cut and the hem are so 2017 and the butterflies make them so much more interesting and unique. I feel that it's such a cute outfit that you can wear to so many different occasions. It's stylish yet laid back and many different girls can pull it off.
This guy is all about mixing the light neutrals and I love it. It takes guts to wear such light colors. Thus, I think he wouldn't mind dating a girl who isn't afraid to take risks. 
Just like you ;)
That floral ensemble is to die for. It's very airy and bohemian and I like how the black tones it down and goes so nicely with the sandals. I could easily see these two lovebirds strolling around in the city!

So, this is the first part of the looks I put together. I love them all equally and I would easily wear them any day. I think they incorporate many of the styles and the colors I've been loving lately.

VALENTINE'S DAY ft. BONOBOS ♡

Hello my darlings! I'm back! I finally finished with my finals and I couldn't be happier. I am so ready to relax and have fun and see all my friends again. Let's just ignore the fact that I've been working all day today because...fashion :P
Anyway, today I wanted to do a Valentine's Day post for all my lovebirds out there. Personally, I don't celebrate it a)because I'm single and dating and b)because I feel that, if you are in love, every day is special. It doesn't matter though, because I love creating sets and articles about this "holiday".
This time, I teamed up with Bonobos again, to create two looks for you. If you've been with me for a while, you might remember our previous collaboration. If not, you can check it out here. Bonobos, basically offers high quality menswear, and I can guarantee that you'll look like a million bucks if you get your clothes from their website bonobos.com I absolutely love their chic and polished aesthetic and I wish more men would dress like that. Well, a girl can dream ;) 
If you're looking to buy menswear for yourself or a special someone, I would highly recommend you to check out their website and especially their pant's page.
The first look that I created (header) is very bold yet classy. This suit is what black tie dreams are made of and I just adore how lovely it looks with the deep red clothes. This has to be my favorite shade of red-almost bordeaux-and I think it's so sexy and sultry, especially paired with the black sandals. I love red on red and, since it can get pretty intense, I would suggest keeping everything else (including the makeup) pretty minimal. This look is proof that you can be sexy and feminine without showing too much skin or wearing tight clothes. Lastly, let's just admit that if we saw this couple out on Valentine's Day, we'd be pretty darn jealous XD

Bonobos: valentine's day ♥
The second look is a bit more casual yet still very polished and glam. I really like the laid-back vibe of the suit and how well it plays with the pink candy tones. I feel like this is fit for a younger couple who wanted to dress up for the special occasion, hence the diamond choker. The pumps are simply to die for ♥ and the makeup set from Kylie's collections is just perfect for the look!

So, what do you guys think? Which one of these looks is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below ♥

HOLIDAY MAKEUP ♡

Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe it's finally 2017? I am so glad that we are moving on from the year that must not be named ;) I had the most amazing time on nye and I really hope you did too. Being genuinely happy around my friends and family is something so precious and empowering and it really gave me hope for the future. May the new year bring happiness, health, love and success to us all! I wish all the best for you and your loved ones ♥
I don't know about you, but makeup always makes me happy. Thus, one of the things that put a smile on my face this holiday season, were all the press samples I received. Aromca was kind enough to send me a bunch of makeup and I can't thank them enough!
I mostly got lip products. A gorgeous waterproof lipliner from Artdeco in the shade "10", a lovely deep red shade(1st swatch). I also got a matte red lipstick (Perfect Mat 116 Poppy Red) from the same brand (3rd swatch) and a creamy one from Erre Due (Full Color Lipstick No.420 Criminal Red) in a similar shade (2nd swatch). Both of them have orange undertones-which are not my favorite-but they are very pretty. The only downside to the E.D. lipstick is that is bleeds and gets on my teeth. Like, a lot :/ So I guess I either need a lip primer or a lipliner underneath. 
The third lipstick that I got was also from Erre Due (4th swatch) in the shade 587. It's a gorgeous matte vine shade that is right up my alley. It vanished when I ate, but stayed put all night when I was drinking on NYE ;)

I'm really excited about the highlighter that I got too. It's in the shade Cinderella Pink-My Precious Glow (5th swatch) and it's a lovely pinky-white shade. It offers more of a subtle glow, but it gets better if you spray it with some Fix Plus. It has a gorgeous floral design and it smells like a delicious cupcake♥ #yum
Other than that, I got the Velvet Touch Lengthening Mascara from Artdeco and a brow pencil from Erre Due. I haven't tried either of them because I already have some mascaras in my rotation and I didn't want this one to dry out and I also gave the brow pencil to my mum as a gift, since I don't need to fill in my eyebrows.
All in all, I am beyond excited with all the makeup that was send to me and I can't wait to play more with it!

MAKEUP & LINGERIE ft. ADORE ME

Hello my loves! I missed you! Can you believe it's almost November? It honestly feels like summer was yesterday. Colder weather means that we get to wear our favorite pieces again and, of course shop for new ones^_^
Pairing your makeup with your clothes is so important in order to have a cohesive look but, what about lingerie? Maybe you don't have to worry about it when you're single (I mean that is completely up to you). But, when your s.o. is also taking a look, matching your makeup to your lingerie is the perfect finishing touch. 
That is why I teamed up-once again-with Adore Me, to share with you our favorite beauty trends for fall and how we like to pair them with our undies. I won't lie to you, being "curvy" myself, bras and panties are my guilty pleasure and I have a full drawer devoted to them. And I want more XD
My biggest obsession when it comes to beauty, this fall, is cranberry. I love deep red tones sooo much and I like how they look amazing from your lips to your eyes to your fingertips. Plus, I feel that they really make my green eyes pop. Like I said, obsessed! 
Luckily for me, happens to be the sexiest color. And it's also perfect for the holiday season. But I don't really love the in-your-face-vibrant-red. I like bordeaux and vine so much more. Thus, I would pair my red makeup with deep red lingerie, or classic black ones with red accents.
Some of my faves are:
