TRAVELWEAR

TFIOS ♥
TFIOS ♥ by ell0oukaa featuring a white tank top
Hey guys! I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I feel so bad, not only because I want to update my blog with new stuff for you as often as possible, but also because it makes me happy to blog about the things I like. But, as I've told you before, I'm going through a very difficult period and I have no time left. In addition to that, the Wi-Fi stops working every five minutes so I can't do anything. I can't do some research, find new stuff, post on the blog, watch videos... It's down as we speak.
Simply amazing♥
But let's get to the point now. I know that a lot of you are about to go on vacation. We've talked before about the things you need to pack, but there is another big question that needs to be answered. What to wear when you travel. The truth is that there is no right answer to that. But if I had to choose, I'd say, something comfortable. This doesn't necessarily mean sweatpants and pajama-like style. If you are like Victoria Beckham, it means stilettos, if you are like most people it means flats, and if you are like me, it means jeans. But it also depends on the destination and, of course, on the way you are choosing to get there. 
Now I realise...
Let's start with the plane. Even if where you're about to go is tropical and extremely hot, the odds are that you're about to get cold on the plane. It's the air conditioning. But, no worries. The key is to dress smart. Choose your outfit, whether it's polished or casual and keep it warm with long pants. I always go for pants over skirt, but that's just me. Pair your tank top, t-shirt or sleeveless blouse (or dress) with a slouchy cardigan, a light-wear hoodie, an over-sized shirt, even a blazer. Here I added a leather jacket, but this seems a little too much. But again, it depends. 
Where did the flowers go?
If you insist on wearing heels, then opt for a lower or thicker heel. My ideal case would be ankle booties. This way, your outfit will still look more put together but also effortless and completely stylish.
Now you're just somebody that I used to know!
If you travel by boat or by car/bus somewhere warm, then you can go for shorts or skirts, if that's your thing. My only hesitation is that you don't know where you'll be sitting and what has touched this seat. So maybe you don't want your bare legs touching that. Just saying.
Even if it’s warm, it’s always a good idea to bring some extra cover-up, just in case. If you’re travelling by boat, at night to an island, then you shouldn’t even consider not taking something to keep your arms from chills.
I never part with my beloved converse when I travel. Sneakers, loafers, ankle boots and espadrilles are definitely a better choice than flip-flops for numerous reasons that I’m not going to state now.
\All over^*
Add a bag big enough to fit all your necessities in it, passport, book, phone, headphones, gum, sanitizer, wipes etc. and you are good to go. I like to use a backpack or a tote that I can throw over my shoulder to keep my hands free. But again, these are comfort issues and are completely up to you.
Spend more time worrying about your ticket and passport than worrying about your clothes. Dress smart and comfy and enjoy travelling

3 WAYS TO USE A WHITE PENCIL VOL.2

Hey guys! How are you? I'm sorry I'm kinda late on posting all the things I should but life has been very hectic the past few weeks. I didn't have time to do anything and when I did, the wifi decided to bail on me. But I keep telling myself to keep it up, trying to hold on to the things that make me happy.
Speaking of which, I'm so very much excited because yesterday the french diploma results went on. I passed! And this is not just like any other diploma. Now I have the right to teach french and study easier in france if I want to! I am extremely happy and I wish good things will keep coming.
Back to the video now. This is the 2nd and final part of my tutorial showing you different ways to use a white eye pencil. In this part I'm using it on the waterline and on my upper lid.
Enjoy and if you found this helpful please press like and subscribe to my channel for more videos like this in the future!

?MORE OR LESS? #9

?More or less? #9
I can't believe this is the 9th version of my ?More or less? category! The first one was five months ago and it involved warm, black turtlenecks. And here we are now...with summer style, maxi dresses and cute sandals, all ready for vacation. It doesn't feel real! Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday, and sometimes it feels like it was like two years ago. 
But let's get straight to the point now. You know I'm digging anything that is a multitasker, alias anything that can be worn in more than one possible ways and in multiple occasions. This is the case with these gorgeous maxi cobalt blue dresses. Here I am showing you the morning version, but this doesn't mean that you can't pull this off easily in many more ways. From a fun day at the beach and a casual coffee break with friends, to a night summer walk or a polished evening gala. Even for a business meeting! You just need to add the right accessories and dress it up or down. You can simply throw it over your favorite swimsuit, add a cardigan, a pashmina or a jacket, switch from flats to heels and, obviously, lose the sunnies and the hat and go for statement jewelry. 
Did you notice that I tried to make the costs more realistic? It's probably the cheapest ?More or less? set I've ever created, whether you go for more or for less! I love how it looks so effortless, yet put together. I've always been a fan of mixing leopard print with dark cobalt blue or black, because I think that it calms they work well together without making things too loud.
You really can't go wrong with such a simple piece, but remember to keep it chic and not overdo it. Especially in the summer.
Wear blue(my 2nd favorite color) and don't feel blue♥

3 WAYS TO USE A WHITE EYE PENCIL VOL.1

With the weekend already here, I thought I should share with you my wisdom. Or not. I mean, I don't think I have any wisdom or whatever when it comes to fashion and beauty. I'm just passionate and love to search and try new things. Experience and a good eye, you could say I have. And a creative mind. 
So, when I bought this white eye pencil, I didn't really know what to do with it. I had seen everyone obsessing over it, but I needed to find a way to incorporate it in my everyday lifestyle. As it turns out, I found three. 
In this video I'm demonstrating the first one, the most useful, if you ask me. Using it to highlight different areas of your face.

ASHLEY BENSON FOR H&M

Happy Monday guys! I hope you had a great weekend. Today, I decided not to post another video, since I've already become an addict, but make a good old post. If you didn't see my previous videos, you can check them out on my channel on Youtube. And make sure to subscribe because there are some exciting things coming in the future and you don't want to miss them^*
Back to the subject now. For those of you who don't know who Ashley Benson is, well, what are you doing with your life? Just kidding:) She's a young actress from L.A. popular for her part as Hanna in the tv series Pretty Little Liars(you should totally watch it for fashion and beauty inspo btw!). I myself am a big fan-watching the show as we speak- so, when I found out that she was the face of the new Divided collection by H&M, you can how excited I was. I like to shop there, mainly because I can find what I'm looking for in a reasonable price. There is always something nice to fall for.
I am officially a fan of the collection, since it combines two of my favorites. It's fresh, young and stylish and has a feminine touch! That works for me! If I had to chose my favorites, I would definitely go for the mint pastels, the creamy whites and the lip bag. I've been obsessing over anything that has lips or eyes(or pineapples) lately!
There will be an article of mine about the collection on Planet Fashion TV, so stay tuned!
I'm sure that I will honor the collection at my next visit at H&M and I'm sure you will too. But, until then, enjoy!

COSMOPOLITAN SUMMER PARTY 2014

Hey guys! I hope your weekend is going great so far. I'm probably going to study and stay in because I'm really tired from yesterday, and from the entire week to be honest.
Yesterday, I went with my bestie to a super fun beach party that Cosmopolitan organised. We had a really great time since there were so many things to do and also swimming was an option.
After making my first video, I got addicted. So, I decided to film the process before the party, but also the party itself. So, if you're going at a morning party at the beach and you're wondering how to do your makeup and what to wear, or you are just curious to see how Cosmo's party was, then watch my video. I realised I gave a lot of kisses at the camera, but my channel's name is 10 Kissez so, who cares? 
Anyways, I hope you like it!

TOP 5 LIP COLORS FOR SUMMER 2014(VIDEO)

I know, it's been a while since I posted and it's not acceptable! But, in my defense, things have been sooo crazy and hectic. Remember how I was all nagging about the exams and everything? Well, I thought, when the exams are over, things will get better, I will have more time. But nooo! I have to work twice as hard now and I am extremely tired. Together with that, a really good friend of mine was leaving so I had to make the time to see her and say goodbye. So no fashion, no alone time and certainly no time for blogging.
BUT! I decided to film a video for you guys instead. I've been meaning to do this for a long time but something always got in the way. It's my very first one so, please be nice and cut me some slack. I hope I didn't make any mistakes while talking, but since English is not my first language, you never know.
Anyways, I hope that you like it! Please subscribe to my channel and like my video and leave me a comment to let me know what you think!
