Summer's coolest! My must haves for the summer 2018.

Hey guys!

Here in Italy we've been having really hot and sunny weather! This weather put me in a mood to browse the internet in a search for trendy and cool new clothing pieces that could jazz up my existing summer wardrobe!

I came across this cool and inexpensive web store that offers everything you'll possibly need to build up (or renew) your wardrobe! The prices are really affordable, and the items you'll find there are definitely on trend.
They have anything from dresses, tops, bottoms, activewear, bags, shoes, accessories, and there is also an inviting sale section that is always worth checking out.

Warm season of the year is also when most special occasions take place. If you have a wedding ceremony, or any other special event coming up, take a look at womens special occasion dresses

Here is one that caught my attention:

When I go out, I usually always bring my son with me for a walk so that means that we go outside in the late afternoon hours because earlier the sun is just too strong.
For those occasions, casual maxi dresses with sleeves are ideal for me!

This here is an example of the dress I love:

This is such a popular model and I'd use one word to describe it: lovely! This season's must have!

Now that I'm a Mum, I don't like to spend a lot of money on myself, as I put my son as a priority! That's why I like when I find places that sell maxi dresses cheap
I'm a big fan of wearing maxi dresses in summertime.

I'm also loving this floral little number! 

This is such a pretty dress for those late afternoon walks, as well as for going to the beach.

Floral dresses long are very popular this season! If you want to be on trend, you need to have at least one in your closet! But one can never have enough pretty floral dresses, right? ;-)

Here is another pretty model that really caught my attention:

This is a very similar model to the first dress that I picked, but what can I do, I'm in love with those girly, romantic styles! This is another very pretty, yet casual model. I'm loving the spaghetti straps. This pattern doesn't require a lot of accessories, you can wear a delicate dainty necklace or a popular choker, and you're good to go! ;-)
It won me over with the colorful print and casual, yet sexy design! Perfect for those hot summer days spent at the beach!

I also came across some nice mini dress plus size that I'd recommend to my friend! She wants to renew her summer wardrobe and add some cool new pieces to her existing must haves.
She always has troubles finding lovely pieces that she likes, that actually flatter her body shape. Regular stores don't offer a lot when it comes to plus size items.

When I showed her the selection this store carries, she really liked these ones :-)

What do you guys think? Which models do you like best and how would you style them?

All the clothes are very affordable, you can find awesome deals and true bargains, so happy shopping!

Summer Fashion 2018. Inspiration Board

Hello lovelies!

As you already know, I've been working on creating my summer fashion wishlist, sort of an inspiration board, where I'll put all the items I'd like to add to my wardrobe to refresh my style.
I thought it would be fun to share it with you!

Summer hasn't officially started yet, but summer temperatures are already here and it feels like summer is already here! This afternoon the storm started, so I'm all cozy & warm in my living room, with my little son, sipping on a cup of tea and snacking on some fresh fruit...I have some extra time to work on this post, and browse through one of my favourite on-line shopping destination for pretty dresses, FashionMia, to select a few of my favourites!

Skater dresses are one of my favourite models of dresses, and they're also very flattering on my body shape. They come in many different and cute prints and colors, and here are some of the ones I like best:

This sexy V-neck solid pleated knitted skater dress is very elegant and feminine. It's great for work environment, but you can also dress it down for more casual days. Pleated skirt is also a very popular detail this summer. This model comes in many different color options, but I must admit, this is my favourite one!

Another dress that I loved is this one:

I usually go for more colorful options and crazy prints, but this season I'm leaning towards simplicity, clean lines and classic models that aren't too trendy, yet they never go out of style.
This round neck striped skater dress is definitely going on my inspiration board for summer fashion clothes! It's now even 80% off, which means I'll have to hurry up and place the order, right? ;-)

So these are the types of dresses that really flatter my body shape, accentuating my best features, but FashionMia also has a big selection of plus size dresses .
We all know that plus size fashion isn't so easy to find, as many high street stores simply don't make their clothes in bigger sizes.
The good news is that on this web store you can find many cute plus size models, so you don't have to give up on being fashionable in your plus size clothes!

Here are a few examples, these are a few dresses for various occasions:

This is a very gorgeous dress for special occasions

Here is one nice model for everyday wear:

And here's a fun print dress for the beach and hot summer weather:

I shared with you some of my favourites, and now is your turn!
Which ones are the dresses you'd like to wear this summer? Share with me your thoughts in the comments :-)

Feel Unique Haul: Burt's Bees, Embryolisse, Ren, Biotherm, Joico, Catwalk, L'Occitane

Hello beauties!

I'm back with a beauty haul post where I share with you my best buys.
These products were on my wishlist for a while now (and I was making several smaller orders at feelunique since the beginning of this year, as I would run out of the product I was currently using, I replaced it with one of the products from my wishlist. That way I didn't feel that I was wasting money, splurging on beauty bits and accumulating them in my beauty cabinet!)

So all these products are also my current favorites and products I can't live without (for now anyways!)


Burt’s Bees® Baby Bee Bubble Bath
Burt’s Bees® Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils
Burt's Bees Lip Crayon 3.11g Redwood Forest
bareMinerals® Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream 35ml 02 Vanilla (Light, Neutral)
Biotherm Beurre de Lèvres
TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Nourishing Mask
REN Vita Mineral™ Omega 3 Optimum Skin Oil
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
Joico Color Endure Violet Shampoo
L'Occitane Exclusive Sparkling Verbena Collection

Burt's Bees

bareMinerals® Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream 35ml 02 Vanilla (Light, Neutral) 

Embryolisse, REN, Biotherm

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré 

REN Vita Mineral™ Omega 3 Optimum Skin Oil 

Biotherm Beurre de Lèvres 

Joico Color Endure Violet Shampoo

TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Nourishing Mask 

I love shopping at Feelunique!

L'Occitane Exclusive Sparkling Verbena Collection

I already started using all of these products, and some of them I even repurchased (the Catwalk hair mask, Embryolisse cream).
I like to shop for beauty products at Feel Unique because it's a safe place to shop at, they pay a lot of attention to customer service and satisfaction and they have a great selection of brands I usually can't find at my local beauty stores (both drugstore and high end products), at very competitive prices.

With each order I can always choose a few free samples, which is a cute gesture and also allows me to try out some new products and see how they work on me before actually buying them full size.

If you'd like to see some more detailed reviews and the always fun unboxing part, make sure to check out my haul video here

Have you ever tried any of these products that I mentioned in this haul?

This summer is all about dresses!

Hello lovelies!

I sure do love summer months! Summer is my favourite part of the year because I can wear beautiful, lightweight summer clothes, and dresses, one of my favourite clothing items!
Most times in winter, it's too cold to wear dresses, but that's why, when warmer months arrive, I make sure to switch from pants into dresses and every year I try to update my wardrobe with some cute new arrivals!
I also have some statement pieces that I always wear every summer, because they're just timeless and always on trend, never go out of style.

This season, I decided to check out some on-line shops for my new dress.

DressSure is one of those places that caught my attention because they offer numerous different designs and models of dresses, tons of new arrivals, at very affordable prices!
As the summer temperatures are already here, and it already feels like summer, I immediately started my research for my new dress, and find some really pretty bodycon dresses; here are just a few:

This elegant floral embroidery O-neck short sleeve bodycon dress left me speachless! I'm in love with the model of this dress, and the blue floral details! This is a very elegant and feminine dress for special occasions, parties etc.

Warm months are also the months when most parties and special events, celebrations take place. For those occasions I found another gorgeous dress that will never go out of style:

This elegant emroidery O-neck 3/4 sleeve bodycon dress won me over with its delicacy and romantic feel! The colour is also perfect! This is just my cup of tea.

This summer, maxi dresses are very popular! You can wear them with wedges, heels, or flats (if you're tall enough) for that casual vibe. They can be worn everyday, for when you're out & about, or special occasions. Everything depends on how you accessorize them!

Here are a few of my top pics:

This is another elegant floral O-neck puff sleeve maxi dress with dainty floral print. This season, I'm in love with this azure blue colour and delicate prints!
With a bright fuchsia lipstick, it looks divine!

This holiday boat neck half sleeve elastic waist maxi dress has such a pretty summery yellow color and it's indeed ideal for summer holidays in a tropical tourist resort.
It reminds me of Mexico, "campesina" style. Very popular model this summer!

Last, but not least is this elegant O-neck lace embroidery maxi dress. This is such a stunning dress and perfect for special occasions and even everyday if you pair it with a jean jacket!

I hope that you liked my selection! Let me know which dress do you like the best?

GRWM: Testing Beauty Big Bang Makeup

Hello beauties!
In one of my recent posts, I shared a BeautyBigBang makeup haul and how I got a chance to pick out some of their products to test and review.
In my unboxing video I already spoke about my first impressions, as I was doing swatches and getting familiar with the products.

Now I decided to do a "GRWM" and create an easy, everyday wearable makeup look and try all the products properly and share my opinions and recommendations with you!

I filmed a Get Ready With Me chatty video makeup tutorial, where I showed you how BeautyBigBang makeup products perform and you can check it out here:

In this video, I also share with you some of my current makeup favorites and go-to products!
Anyway, I was really pleased with all the BeautyBigBang products:


Beauty Bigbang Eyes Eyeshadow Palette #02
Beauty Bigbang Rainbow Highlighter # 03
Beauty Bigbang Matte Liquid Lipstick # 03 Dolce K
Beauty Bigbang Loose Powder # 01 Ivory

Beauty Bigbang Eyes Eyeshadow Palette #02

This eyeshadow palette turned out to be quite a little gem! It has good pigmentation, these shades can be used to create everyday / neutral looks, but also more glam, night time looks!
I picked a palette with earthy tones and some red/ orange hues because these are the shades I prefer at the moment but you can get the same palette in other shade options! 
There are matte eyeshadows as well as shimmery / highlight colors and they just work and blend beautifully together.

Beauty Bigbang Rainbow Highlighter # 03

BeautyBigBang Rainbow highlighter is such a great versatile product! If you're on the go and are traveling and you have a very limited space in your beauty bag, bring this product with you and you won't regret it!
This works great as a subtle highlighter but also as eyeshadow and bronzer!
I went for shade #03 because it goes perfectly with the tones of the eyeshadow palette, but again, there are different options available.

Beauty Bigbang Matte Liquid Lipstick # 03 Dolce K

This matte liquid lipstick is such a great discovery! I'm actually so impressed that I'd like to go and order more shades!
It has a very pleasant scent, it's long lasting, non sticky, not too drying (I do like to moisturize my lips with a lip balm before applying it) and the small and pointy applicator is just perfect and super precise (I find that I don't even need to use lip pencil to define my lips!).
It's really a great, great product and possibly one of my favorites from this haul!
I also love the color selection BeautyBigBang offers and this can be a dupe to more expensive, high end brands for sure!

Beauty Bigbang Loose Powder # 01 Ivory

To complete any makeup look, I always set my makeup with translucent loose powder.
I currently use the one from Kiko Make Up Milano but I'm running out of it, so this one came as a perfect substitute!
It's very lightweight and blends seamlessly on your face. It does its job: Sets the make up and creates that perfect finish whilst slightly mattifying.
My opinion is that this is a brand that we're going to hear more about in the near future, as it has some great products and color selections for everybody's taste, that won't pass unnoticed!
At last, if you fancy ordering anything from BeautyBigBang, you can use code SVX10 at checkout for 10% OFF your entire purchase! (not affiliated, just a little gift for my readers!)

Some of my recent looks with these products:

Here I used the setting powder and neutral / matte eyeshadow from the palette.

Glowy skin thanks to rainbow highlighter!
