ERRE DUE FW16 ♡


Have a nice month month everyone! How are you all this lovely day? Personally, I'm soaking up the sun and relaxing. And working. I never really stop working but, at least, I love my job. And I also love getting press samples as part of it.
I was so excited when I received a couple of things from Erre Due 's fall collection. They always come up with such great products and I'm so happy with the things I got. As for the ones I didn't, I definitely have my eye on those new liquid lipsticks. Shocking, I know XD
The first thing that I got, is an eyeshadow trio (No 601). It's baked and the color selection is beautiful. All three are very pigmented and easy to work with. There is a reflective, almost duochrome pink, a metallic brown and a rich dark blue-brown. The only downside is that they are technically all "one", and I hate it when different colors mix together.
The second one is a contour stick (No 311-Dark). Very creamy and easy to apply. I love that it comes with a round blending brush on the other end. But, it's too dark for me this time of the year, so I'll have to wait a while to test it out.
Then I got brow products. A brow cream (62 Medium Brown) that came with a tiny little brush and a brow mascara (52 Medium Ash). Both products were very easy to use and it takes no time for an effortlessly full and put together result. You can use them separately or together
I don't use them, because I already have pretty full and dark brows, so I gave them to my mum and she really enjoys them. 
Lastly, I got two brushes. One for contouring/blush (PW/03) and one regular eyeshadow brush (ES/02). I'm going to be honest. They are not as soft as my Real Techniques brushes. They are natural and not synthetic, they really pick up product and apply it nicely and they are easy to clean (although they are not clean in the pic :P).
All in all, I am very happy with all the products and I look forward to reviewing more in the future. You can check out everything mentioned here, plus their full collection on erredue.gr

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:

DAY 2 NIGHT ft. AUrate ♥

Hello my loves! Enjoying the rain today? I sure was happy I finally got to wear my boots again!They're such a great staple and one of my favorite transition pieces.
Transition doesn't always have to be from one season to another but, also, from day to night. It's so nice to find great staple pieces that you can dress up or down, depending on your obligations and your mood.
The gold bar necklace from AUrate, is certainly one of them. Honestly, I would say that it is so chic and versatile that you could wear it literally anywhere from the beach to the most glamorous fashion gala. Today, I wanted to incorporate it into two looks that I would definitely wear from day to night. I also used that gorgeous slip dress as a glam key piece in both looks.  
For the daytime version, I added a white t-shirt which instantly takes it from Carrie Bradshaw naked dress to 2016 hot street trend. I love how the sneakers and the distressed denim make the look more sporty and casual.
As for the evening look, I opted for black accessories to make the gold dress and necklace really stand out. Perfect and basic, with a touch of sparkling glam. So me♥
I believe that both these looks are extremely wearable and easy to pull off by anyone. My goal was to show you that you could be casual and comfy, even while wearing 14k gold, at work, college etc.
So, what do you guys think? What would you pair this lovely necklace with? Let me know in the comments below ^* and don't forget to visit the AUrate website to check out their entire collection!

STYLE FILE: TWEED♡

I know, I know...another style file! I can't help it, you guys. Not only I adore this category, but it's also the easiest thing to do since I am already hunting for trends all day. I'm a stylist at heart and these posts just give me so much inspiration, so many things to work with.
Anyway, today I'm going to blab about tweed. I mean, it's October, I am officially allowed to obsess about cold weather clothes. And tweed might be one of the best. Let me start by saying that I think it's so commonly mistaken for an "old age fabric". And for good reason. I mean, the two names that pop to mind when I hear tweed are Jackie O' and Queen Elizabeth. Not exactly teen pop sensations.
But, tweed can also be styled in a very modern and fashion forward way (God bless Karl). This fabric has been all over the f/w16 runways and street style icons have been loving it as well. Let's not forget that, apart from the uber ladylike chanel suits, it also comes with some very masculine vibes. Aka, perfect for all the tomboys out there! Imagine a long grey tweed coat with jeans and b&w Adidas. So cool.
It's chic, it's comfy, it's warm and versatile and-probably above all-it's an all time classic. The best part is, that you can also find it in non-boring colors(if you think that grey is boring anyway), like neon pink.
What's more to ask for? Consider me hooked.
What about you guys? Will you be wearing tweed this season? Let me know in the comments below♥
