How To Style // Denim Skirts

How To Style // Denim Skirts



When I was little, I was obsessed with denim skirts, I wore them every chance I could but as I grew older, my liking for skirts diminished. Between the age of 13 to 17 I didn't wear a skirt once! In the past two years, I've been trying to incorporate skirts (and also dresses) into my wardrobe.

This year, denim skirts are back in full force so I decided to show you guys some ways I would style a denim skirt.

5 Beauty Products Under 5€

5 Beauty Products Under 5€



I love makeup/skincare products, especially when they are cheap! I know people associate price with quality, but sometimes expensive products are not that great and cheap products are amazing!
Today, I'm here to show you guys 5 beauty products I love that are under 5€. 




Douglas XSmall Gentle Eye and Lip Makeup Remover -1€

I love this makeup remover so much! You just need a tiny bit and your eye/lip makeup will come right off. Now, this is the travel size version of this product, but I've had it since May , I use it almost everyday and I still haven't used even half of it! 



Nivea Moisturiser- 1,75€

I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on this product, but I personally love it. I have very dry skin around my nose area so this moisturiser is great for that. I normally apply it before going to bed and after a shower. 


Andreia Rocket Nail Varnish - 1,99€

This varnish was actually a recent purchase. I was in need of a nude varnish so I went to a local store and bought this one. I love Andreia's varnishes because not only they dry fast, they last long. 



Primark Contour Brush- 2€

This is one of the softest brushes I own. It was super cheap, it serves it's purpose really well and it's cute to look at!




Essence Forbidden Volume False Lash Mascara- 3,79€


If you're looking for an affordable mascara that actually does what it's supposed to do, then this is it! This mascara gives you humongous lashes and great volume! And the most amazing thing is that this mascara comes with a top coat to give your lashes that extra bit of volume and length!

5 Things To Do On A Lazy Sunday

5 Things To Do On A Lazy Sunday



I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays (we all do right?) Sundays mean relaxation but also stress because Monday is right around the corner.

I personally love to spend my Sundays at home relaxing, but for the longest time I felt like by staying at home being lazy, I was being the biggest procrastinator. A few months ago, I decided to be 'lazily productive': do stuff that is relaxing but that don't make me feel like I haven't done anything all day.

Today, I decided to share with you 5 things you can do on a lazy Sunday:

1- Watch a new TV show/movie

We all have that TV show or movie we are dying to watch, but never seem to find time to do so. Well, Sundays are perfect for that.

2- Have a pamper session 

Take a bubble bath, exfoliate, do a hair mask, hydrate your skin, make Sunday about YOU.

3- Try a new recipe

Go on Pinterest and look for a new recipe for you to try. Who knows, this new recipe might just become a household classic!

4- Catch up on your favorite blogs/ Youtube channels

Read this week's favorite blogposts and watch you favorite youtubers' new videos.


5- Prepare the week ahead

Plan your outfits, meals and everything in between for the next week so you don't need to rush during the week.


What's your favorite way to spend Sundays?

How To Style // Graphic Tees

How To Style // Graphic Tees

If you've seen street style pictures of NYFW, you know graphic tees were one of the most worm items by everyone who attended the shows. These tees are a great way to make a simple look much more interesting. 

To be honest, there was a time where I absolutely hated graphic tees, the reason being that I thought they made me look childish (I don't even know...), but in more recent years I've grown to love them and have been incorporating them into my wardrobe.

Today, I'm here to share with you guys ways that you can style these tees. I hope you enjoy them!

How To Sleep Better

How To Sleep Better


I'm a light sleeper. I've struggled with it all my life. I wake up with a minimal amount of noises, like for example, the sound of my mom opening the living room windows (mind you, between the living room and my bedroom there are two bathrooms and my parents bedroom). In addition to being a light sleeper, there are nights were I'm constantly waking up, manly because my TV was left on or I'm worried about something that's going to take place the next day. 

Lately, I've been having much better nights, as I tried to change my sleeping routine a bit and follow some tips I've seen online. Here are my top 5 tips to sleep better:


1- Unplug 

I've read on a magazine that you should turn off your phone, laptop or tablet one hour before you actually want to sleep, because  the light on the devices makes your brain more alert and consequently you won't be able to sleep at the time you planned to do so. 

2- Take a shower/bath before bed 

I find myself sleeping a lot better if I take a shower or bath before I go to sleep, especially in the winter. You feel super warm and relaxed and next thing you know, you're entering the wonderful world of sleep. 

3-Prepare the next day 

As I said above, I'd wake up in the middle of the night worried about something that was supposed to happen the following day. I was never big on planning for ahead, whether that was translated into choosing the outfit I would wear or packing my school bag. I would always do it on the actual day. That made super stressed out because not only was I much more restricted time-wise, I was also more likely to forget something. Now that I've started planning ahead I'm not as stressed out as I used to be and that results in a better night's seep. 

4- Listen to relaxing music

Listening to soothing music can make you sleep a lot better! I don't do this every night, but when I do, I put on my head phones and listen to really slow and calm songs. After 4 or 5 songs, I turn off my iPod and in 5 minutes, I'm asleep. 

5- Wear comfy pyjamas 

The pjs you wear to bed are extremely important: if they're itchy of made of a more harsh material, it's guarantied you won't be able to sleep well. You need to feel comfortable in your pyjamas so you can sleep the whole night through
How To Style // Bomber Jackets (Pt. 2)

Bomber jackets were one of the biggest trends last year, but, unlike most trends it transitioned to this season. They are a very versatile piece as it can be worn throughout all seasons (of course, depending on their material and thickness) and in almost any occasion. Bombers give a sporty and effortless look to an outfit without taking away it's beauty and girly touch.

I have previously done a post on how to style bomber jackets (here), but as it's been a year since I've done it so I thought I'd do a more up to date version of that post.

Here are a few ways I'd style bomber jackets.

The European Closet  x The Reach London // Luxury Pyjamas Worth  Getting Out Of Bed For

The European Closet x The Reach London // Luxury Pyjamas Worth Getting Out Of Bed For


Who doesn't love good pyjamas? I know I do! I love pyjamas so much that if I could, I'd wear them every single day!So when The Reach London got in contact with me about their new Kickstarter Campaign and new amazing pyjama collection, I was really excited to  collaborate with them!

Helen, Olivia and William created The Reach London in 2015 when they realised nightwear had seriously upgraded over the year and yet they still failed to find stylish cotton pyjamas that matched the quality and design of silk ones without the high price tag and expensive dry cleaning bills, so they decided to create their own luxury pyjama collection. To back up this collection, they created a Kickstarter Campaign that was launched on August 31st (for those who don't know, Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everyone that backs up a project can choose a reward form a variety of options offered by the project creator).


Why are The Reach pyjamas so special? 

  • They are made with the highest workmanship and materials
  • They are designed and manufactured in London 
  • Pyjama shirts and trousers can be purchased either as a set or as individual pieces
  • Free shipping everywhere

The Reach pyjama shirts are designed to also be worn not only in the comfort of your home, but also outside, paired with jeans and some cute heels. They also give you the option to choose a size for the top and another size for the bottom, which I find amazing because I like the tops to be on the looser side and the bottoms to be on the tighter side. The men's pyjamas are also available in two different leg lengths. 
Here are a few words from The Reach Owners themselves:

''Women’s Luxury Cotton Pyjama Shirts and Trousers

women a sense of everyday special whenever they wear them. With an adjustable
drawstring waist band to enable them to be worn on the hips or waist, tops designed to

love them as much as we do!
