My top picks: Holiday season women's dresses

Hello dolls!

In this post I'm going to share with you some tips and inspiration on how to get that perfect dress for the holiday season. Here in Italy where I live, in December can get quite cold, yet at the same time, it's definitely a party month. A lot of work/ family gatherings take place right around the holiday season, everybody is in a festive mood and the clothes need to be right for the occasion!
So I'm thinking, something cute & fancy, but warm!

I wanted to update my wardrobe for the holiday season, so I teamed up with Callabuy, as they have a big selection of cheap long dresses and also I'd love to bring you a few ideas for the upcoming holidays! When I think of Christmas party, I imagine myself wearing a long, lovely dress, feeling festive and feminine! The important thing for me is that it's also reasonably priced, so I don't go over my budget for the holidays.

Here are a few of my favourite models for this winter and family party / work party occasions:




This dress is a pure classic and it reminds me so much on Burberry style. It's very chic and elegant and definitely my cup of tea!



Another lovely model is this plaid, red & grey dress. It looks very cozy and warm, yet so festive! I love it!

These are just a couple of my favourite pieces, but there is a big selection of cheap clothes for women and here are a few more models that have caught my attention:




Did you know that polka dot print is extremely popular this season? If you want to keep up with this season's trends, this cute pattern is a way to go!

These are definitely some of the best selling pieces!




For my Christmas dinner with colleagues from work, this year I'd go for this lovely elegant maxi dress! I love the style of it, the print and the colour. I think it looks particularly nice teamed with a thin belt to accentuate the waist line. It's quite simple and elegant. I imagine wearing this dress for many different occasions!

My best tip for picking out the right kind of party dress for yourself would be to always keep in mind the occasion/ where the party will take place (location, time of the day/ night etc.), weather conditions, and of course, your personal style! Be informed about the latest trends, but don't try to follow them at all costs, instead of that, try to adjust them to your personal style and liking! I hope this was somewhat helpful and encouraged you to find your true style and outfit that represents you the best!

I hope you liked my selection! Let me know which one was your fave?

Cozy & cute sweaters for the coldest time of the year!

Hello dolls!

Today in Italy it was quite cold! I think the weather in December is going to get even colder, and for the holiday season I'll have to be ready to use my warmest sweaters.
I do love cozy and warm knitwear and I have some really cute models that I like to wrap myself in, whenever outside temperatures get really low! I don't want to risk catching a cold!

Recently I got in touch with Ninacloak web store that sells really cute clothing so I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite pieces from their offer, for this winter season.
It might serve you as a bit of an inspo when it comes to renewing your winter wardrobe.

When outside is cold, I like to wear pants or jeans, and styling sweaters with them is easy.
When purchasing a new sweater I always look that it has at least a bit of wool, to keep me warm, and of course, I like nice prints and designs.

Here I found some really awesome women's sweaters on sale




My first pick is this lovely beige sweater. It's truly a timeless piece and a staple in my wardrobe. A piece like this will never go out of style.





I also wanted to show you this grey sweater with pearls, because I have a very similar one and I love it! This sweater is very cute even for special occasions or dinners out in a restaurant.






Patchwork sweaters are very popular this season, and also a very nice way to make your outfit a bit more fun and interesting!



Here's another must have for this season: Christmas sweater! I think everyone should own one, and wear it all through December :-)



This season's popular color is certainly green! A bit unexpected for winter months, but yet this is how it is! My favourite color has always been green, ever since I was a kid, because it's a color of the nature, but I don't actually have a lot of green clothing items in my wardrobe.
This here is a very cute sweater with side buttons as decorations. I think it would look great with high waisted mom jeans or similar!

I hope you liked my selection of warm winter sweaters! Let me know, which one is your favourite, and, do you own an "Ugly christmas sweater"? :-)

I TOUCHED UP MY ROOTS AT HOME! MIXING KAY PRO INTENSE BLOND & LIGHT BLOND ASH & BOLD UNIQ PURPLE SHAMPOO FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Hello lovelies!

In my today's post I'm going to share with you a little vlog that I filmed two weeks ago, when I decided to touch up my roots at home. I used two different hair colors by Kay Pro (7.0 Intense Blonde, and Caviar Supreme line, 8.1 Light Blonde Ash). I didn't want to go extremely blonde on my roots, but I did desperately want to cover my dark roots and some grey hair (ouch!!!)


With a help of sales assistant / hairdresser at Beauty & Co. store, I decided to opt for the mixture of these two shades, because I wanted to stay on the safe side, achieve very natural shade of blonde, without having to use a very high level of developer (I went for 20 vol.)

In my vlog "BLONDE PROBLEMS! WATCH ME TOUCH UP MY ROOTS AT HOME! MIXING KAY PRO INTENSE BLOND & LIGHT BLOND ASH" I showed you step by step how I colored my hair at home and the final result, so I'm sure you'll find it interesting if you're thinking about doing something similar!




Luckily, recently I was sent one of the best purple shampoos on the market, Bold Uniq, to test out & review if I like it. I tried using it after having colored my hair, and the result was fabulous!








All these "selfies" were taken in natural daylight to show you how the result looks like, the last photo doesn't even have any filter (the first two just have the filter "smooth" from snapseed, which shouldn't influence how the actual hair color looks like.)




I'm sure this shampoo helped me a lot in getting the desired result. It truly is one of the strongest, most pigmented purple shampoos that I have ever tried out, and it really works!
In just a matter of minutes you can get those ashy / silver hues in your hair, or combat brassy or dull shades. Of course, the result depends on the colour of your hair that you're starting with (silver shampoo can achieve anything from muting brassy tones for a warm honey blonde, to a cool white platinum, depending on starting hair shade). I left it in my hair for cca 5 min. and the result was already very much visible! I'm going to keep using it once a week to maintain this color, and if it gets a bit too violet, I can easily wash it off with a clarifying shampoo.
I'm so pleased, I'm certainly going to film a separate review of this product! It’s paraben & sulfate free, vegan, and not tested on animals, and it has very pleasant, citrusy scent I'd say.
With the shampoo, I also got a small detangling brush which I liked very much! It's very similar to tangle teezer, or Macadamia "No tangle" brush, and it's also super handy to carry in your beauty bag, everywhere with you!


I hope you had fun watching my hair coloring vlog!
