How To Style // Leather Skirts



Leather skirts are one of those clothing items that can make you feel elegant and edgy at the same time. It's now Winter but that doesn't mean we have to bid goodbye to our leather skirts - or any skirts for that matter- just because it's cold outside. We can easily put some thick tights and a warm sweater and we're good to go.

I've rounded up a few ways you can wear your leather skirt during winter, I hope they inspire you!

The European Closet: outfits for dinner parties


We all get excited when we're invited to Christmas dinner parties - or any dinner party for that matter- but when the actual day arrives, we are left with the dreadful question "What am I going to wear?''. All of the sudden, everything in our closet seems too casual to wear and we have the need to go shopping and even then we have difficulties choosing what to buy. 

Today, I'm showing you 15 ways you can dress to holiday dinner parties. Hopefully, this post will give you some ideas.

4 Things Every Girl Loves To Get For Christmas

4 Things Every Girl Loves To Get For Christmas



I've been thinking about stuff to give the girls in my family for Christmas and until a few days ago, I didn't have any idea of what to give them. Everytime I thought of something to offer them, I later realized I was thinking about something that I would like to receive, and not them. After thinking it thoroughly, I gathered up 4 items that every girl likes to get for Christmas. 


Aromanice Eco Purity Bath Kit 


What kind of girl doesn't like to be pampered? This kit is a great way to bring the Spa to your home. It comes with bath salts, a small towel, body lotion, shower gel and shower cream. 


Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Hand+Nail Cream and Lip Conditioner 



We all experience dry hands and lips during winter, so what a better gift to give someone than a good hand moisturizer and lip balm to keep your skin and lips hydrated. That's where this Caudalie kit comes in. Besides the fact that it is a great gift, the moisturizer and lip balm are a great size so you can easily carry the with you everywhere you go. 


Oriflame Happydisiac Perfume 



Who doesn't want to smell good? In my mind, everyone loves perfumes so obviously this is a great Christmas gift, in my opinion. This Oriflame Perfume is a great option. Its floral smell with a hint or Wild Strawberry and Egipcian Jasmine gives you a subtle yet noticeable smell. 


Chocolates!



This is probably the most standard gift but yet it is one you can't go wrong with (unless the person you're giving the chocolates to is allergic or doesn't like them). People love to eat these little treats during the Christmas as some of these chocolates -like Ferrero Rocher- are only available during the holidays. 
How To Style // Fur

How To Style // Fur



When people think about Winter clothing, one of the first things that pop into their minds is fur. Winter means cold, and fur means warmth so naturally people have the tendency to wear furry pieces to keep themselves warm during cold days. 
Although fur is something we wear every single Winter, it is a major trend this season, and you can find it in all sorts of forms: fur coats, fur bags, fur shoes, fur accessories and everything in between! 
Today, I decided to show you a few ways to style fur clothing, whether it is a coat, a bag or shoes.

How I Stay Organized

How I Stay Organized



If you're a blogger, you know how time consuming it is to run a blog. You need to think about post ideas, take pictures, edit them, write the post, promote it on social media and, of course engage with your readers. Blogging takes much more time than most people think!

Sometimes, it can be hard to juggle blogging with school, work and your social life. 
For a lot of bloggers, blogging is a hobby- a side job if you will- so they don't have a lot of time to spend writing and promoting things on social media. I've struggled several times with this issue- wanting to blog but not having the time to do so. However, I've come up with an organization system to help me organize my blog and blogging schedule, but also to help me organize my life in general. Today, I'm sharing 3 ways I keep myself and my blog organized. 


 Planner 

I'm a visual person, so I hate organizing my life on my phone. I need to visualize my week in order to organize myself around the things I have to do. For the past year I've been using a Mr. Wonderful Agenda (here's the 2017 version) and in  there I write down everything I need to do regarding my blog and also my personal life. 



 Blog Notebook

I have this Ale-Hop notebook (which is no longer in stock but here's another one I find really cute) and I use to jot down blogpost ideas, to write rough drafts of blogposts and photo ideas. That way, I can be a bit more organized with my blog. 


 Pocket Planner

My Mr. Wonderful Planner is a quite big so it doesn't fit in most of my bags so my Mom got me this little pocket planner -I made the cover myself- which I take with me everywhere and everytime I have a blogpost idea or have somewhere important to go to, I write it down there and then transfer the information to my big Mr. Wonderful Agenda.

5 Beauty Favorites

5 Beauty Favorites



This morning, I realized I only ever did a 'favorites' post once almost (here) almost two years ago. I was going through my makeup and beauty products and gathered up 5 products I've been using over and over for the last few weeks and decided to share them with you guys.





Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in 010 Porcelain 

I found this concealer randomly when I went to the drug store to buy a lipstick for my sister. I was extremely happy to find it because I had ever found a super light concealer under 5€. It's super high coverage and it blends amazingly.  




I've loved this palette ever since I got it three years ago. It's a great palette to use for an everyday makeup look and also for more elaborate looks. As you can see by the pictures, my most used colors are Venus - which I used to wear as a  highlighter for the longest time- and Naked 2. 




Essence Lip Liner in 05 Soft Berry 

I love Essence Lip Liners. They are super soft and creamy and glide on like butter. I've been using the color 06 Soft Mauve for the longest time but, the last few times I've been to the drug store, this color is not available. Back in June, I bought this shade and I really liked it but I only wore it about two times before I lost it. A few weeks ago, I re-bought it and have fallen in love with it all over again.



I've talked about this lipstick on my '5 Not So Typical Lipsticks For Winter' post (here). I haven't had it for a long time but for the short time I've had it, I've been loving it. It's super pigmented and even though it's a matte lipstick, it doesn't feel dry on the lips.




I love black nail polishes and this Kiko one is, by far, my favorite. I love the fact that you don't need to apply coats and coats of it to have an opaque finish. You  just need only two- sometimes even one- coat and it'll look perfect.

What beauty products have you been loving lately?
