MISSLOOK Women's Long Sleeve Dress Review & OOTD

Hello beauties!
In my previous post I already explained why I wasn't very active on my blog & other social medias during the holiday season, but now I'm back to my regular routine and I wanted to show you a dress that I received just a few days before Christmas.
We spent Christmas in Italy at my in-laws, and the next day we travelled to Croatia!

We had a big Christmas lunch with my hubby's family, and chilled for the rest of the day (we'll take the word "chill" loosely, as with a little toddler running around, you can never actually "chill", lol!)
But kids are all the fun and the beauty of holidays, I believe!

I  wanted to share a quick OOTD, as I managed to take a few outfit photos (wearing my new dress from MissLook).

Wine red color is just perfect for the holidays and I actually enjoy wearing it throughout the whole fall and winter season. It's quite cold in Italy these days but I did some serious layering to keep myself warm!


Dress is from MissLook, leggings and faux fur vest are from H&M.

This double buckle belt is from ages ago and I found it at Zaful for just a few bucks and boots are my trusty Dr. Martens that I wear all the time!

I ordered this dress through MissLook's Amazon store and it comes in a variety of different colour options, but I went for the "wine red" version and I love it!
The price was $ 17.99 plus shipping, and I opted for a size M.
The shipping was surprisingly speedy (I got the package within one week!), and this dress is, let me tell you, the softest thing ever! I just adore wearing it as it feels so nice on the skin.
  • Material: 95% RAYON/5% SPANDEX. Stretchy, super soft and comfortable.
    This is a perfect "everyday" dress, and also, ideal as "maternity" (no, I'm not pregnant again!, just saying, I could really recommend it to all the pregnant ladies out there...)
    Last, but not least, a little thank you note from me, for reading my articles and sticking with me! I hope you all had the best holidays and that I keep making interesting content for you in the new 2019!

    From my family to yours, lots of love from Italy!

Popreal fashion haul for my toddler boy!

Hello lovelies!

First post in the New year, I know it's been a while, but I was away on a little family vacation in Croatia and I didn't find time to blog sooner!
I hope you all had a great start to this New 2019. and that it'll be an amazing one, to all of us :-)

In this post, I'd like to show you a little fashion haul that I made in collaboration with Popreal 
I already worked with them in this outfit video, so check it out if you haven't yet, because there I featured a cool '90.ies Vintage OOTD, Casual Mommy Style.

When I was placing my second order, I decided to treat my little one: He's growing so fast, I buy things for him constantly!
Popreal is a web store that offers cheap, but very cute kids clothes. To me, when purchasing clothes for my little one,  quality is essential! I always check that the clothes are made of natural fibres and well made, that's more important to me than the fashion aspect. They need to be comfy and functional.
Also, as he outgrows everything so fast, there is really no need in spending so much money.
At Popreal, all my standards are satisfied.
Let me show you what did I get for my little son:

A cute little berret "I love Mama" for only $ 3.66

A pair of light wash ripped blue jeans, that will be perfect in spring time! $ 11.55

Cartoon shark print round neck top $ 9.31

I ordered size 100 in all these items and they'll be great even after a couple of months from now, since they're a bit big. You can check the measurement chart on their site and it's quite accurate. I purposely wanted to get a slightly bigger items to him, so he can wear them this upcoming spring.

Everything is 100% cotton and well made.
However, there was one item missing from my order, and I received no explanation for this:

I'm currently waiting on a reply from their customer's service about why is this item missing from my order, and about refund/ possibility to get another item if this one went out of stock in the meanwhile!
I'll keep you guys updated!

The shipping cost is quite high, considering the fact that the items are actually quite affordable, I wasn't expecting to pay $ 23.08 for the shipping, out of my $ 60 budget.

I'm pleased with the clothes I ordered, I just wished the shipping was more affordable and that I got some info about the item in my order getting sold out and being offered an alternative.

Have you ever shopped at Popreal? What was your experience?

10 Minute Mommy Makeup | Realistic GRWM

Hello beauties!

Today's post is a quick GRWM! I don't wear makeup any more on a daily basis (when I'm staying at home with my son), but I do wear it on weekends, when I work, and also, when I am scheduled to film a video.
My makeup routine has become very simple, easy and quick! Time is a luxury these days, so I needed to find the products that are multi purpose and top quality! I'm sure that this makeup routine applies not only for us busy mommas but also for students and busy career women.

So if you fancy spending 10 minutes with me, watching me put my makeup on and getting ready for the day, take a look here.

My little one was taking a nap, so I decided to do my makeup quietly and just added music while editing. I hope you liked the concept. This video is meant more as a relaxing sort of video, rather than a tutorial! In this realistic, 10 minute mommy GRWM video I feature some products that I got recently at and some of my other holy grails when it comes to makeup!

You can take a look at my bornprettystore new in here:


The 8 Colors Shimmer Eyeshadow Makeup Palette Long Lasting Eyeshadow #24110 is actually very nice quality and super affordable! It's compact, so it fits every makeup bag, the pigmentation is good and you can create subtle, day appropriate looks to evening looks!
You can get it at bornprettystore for only $ 2.59.

(Use SONJAK31 at checkout for additional 10% OFF + free shipping!)

Other essentials are my Benefit Ka Brow! (I've had this product for nearly 2 years and it's still perfect and does the job perfectly), Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer (the best one!) and Catrice HD Liquid Coverage (I like to mix it with a few drops of rose oil to make it a bit more sheer and hydrating, which is more suitable for my skin type.)

As far as lipstick goes anything neutral and creamy will do! I used a lipstick from Kiko Milano Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in #301 Beige.

I hope you had a lovely coffee break, watching this GRWM!
Let me know what are your holy grail products for quick and easy everyday makeup looks?
