PAULA CADEMARTORI

Hey guys! How is your weekend going so far? I'm sorry I didn't post anything for like 10 days, but life hasn't been that kind to us lately. Apart from the usual hectic schedule, something really tragic happened this week that really upset me. I'd like to keep it private, mainly because I don't want to make you sad too. Just remember that the future is so completely unpredictable so make sure not to postpone what you want to do, be honest about your feelings, let the people close to you know that you love them and live life to the fullest. 
I know, you didn't come here to hear my whining and life goes on and we must work and study and put a smile on our faces. Let's get to the post. Spring is closer than we think, although it's kinda snowing here... February is almost over and there are plenty warm sunny days to come. If you are like me you probably feel like wearing your oversized dark fluffy sweater until April, and I don't blame you. But it's time to start thinking about our spring wardrobes.
Recently, I bumped on some of Paula Cadermatori's bags while I was looking around online. In case you haven't heard of her, she is a brazilian designer who was working for Versace until she launched her own line of bags in 2010 with the signature silver buckle. 
I was immediately hooked! We all know how much I love crazy designs and vivid colors. My clothes may be a bit on the basic side, but my accessories are definitely crazy and colorful. These leather bags stole my heart. And, like it always happens, I can't afford them. Most of the designs cost over 1.000$ so, yeah, eye candy it is. Let's enjoy it.
Color block or monochromatic, studs, prints or embellishments these babies look soooo good! I can picture so many great outfits to wear them with. They are unique and crazy and fun. Aka exactly what you need for spring. Now, if you get a headache by just looking at them, then there are some safer options for you in here.
Can I just point out that the style kinda reminds me of Sophia Webster? Do you agree? Which one of these is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below♥

MARSALA: PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2015

What's up guys? How are you all?
I am soooo busy and tired these days, but I had to make this post for you. In case you missed it, you can check out the post I did for 2014's color of the year here. I did this in May and I absolutely loved it, and you guys liked it too. So, I thought I should do it again now that 2015 is so, so close. 
We're just a few breaths and blinks away from the new year, and Pantone has already announced the new it-shade for decor, fashion and beauty. It's called "Marsala" and it's basically the color of the well-known wine. I would describe it as a mix of burgundy, maroon, brown, beige and deep red...if that makes any sense. I read that it got some bad reviews, but I really don't understand why. Personally, I find it quite interesting. I was in love with the past colors but, as you can notice, they were all vibrant and vivid, almost neon. Marsala though is much deeper and mature in a way. It's much more versatile, since you can make tons of different combinations and it suits well both men and women. You can check out Pantone's page for potential combinations. 
They call this color, "The new neutral". I sorta agree since it's really easy to put together many different looks using the color and you can wear it in pretty much any occasion, dress it up or down and make the transition from day to night.
I think that the best, and probably the easiest and cheapest way to incorporate this new color trend in your everyday life, is with the right cosmetics. This is why I found for you some of the best beauty products in the market, some affordable and some more expensive ones, as always. I know I went a little overboard with the lippies, but who doesn't love a red-ish lip, especially this season? 
Also, exciting news, Sephora is launching a Marsala makeup collection in collaboration with Pantone Universe, just like they did in 2012 with Tangerine Tango. I can't wait! 
Until then, you can stare at all these gorgeous products-or buy them XD. Enjoy!
