Today was Monday. The first day of the week, it comes right after sunday and usually it is not a pleasant day.
Decided to face my day with a smile and positive attitude, I put together a beauty ritual to help me start the day juuuuust right! Here's a picture of the lovely products I used.



Every single one of them is absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately, the Passion Fruit Body Scrub from THE BODY SHOP is no longer available. All I can say is that it is amaaaaazing! And then there's Whoosh, Ocean Salt (Facial Scrub), Peppermint Smoothing (really leaves the feet feeling fresh and rested) and the Shine So Bright Balm for dry hair tips. I haven't used it a lot, but the few times I did it was a success.

Today was also the day I tried out the samples they gave me at LUSH. Day 1 and already showing some improvements on my face! (see the products they gave me here ).  I definitely recommend the Fresh Mask, it does true wonders!


After the beauty ritual (and given the fact it was already l…

I can't resist a little LUSH

Image
As promissed, I am here to show you all my latest acquisitions from the wonderful, scented and amazing LUSH. 

I've been seriously annoyed with the fact that I missed my opportunity to buy the Arizona Tote from BIMBA&LOLA and I really wanted to buy something for myself. Well, the next thing on my list was to take a little trip to LUSH! My mommy bought me a few things for Christmas but I always find new things to buy.

First of all, my congratulations to the team working at LUSH in Amoreiras Shopping Center (Lisbon). Nice doesn't even begin to cover the way they treated me and it's good to see happy and joyous sales assistants (maybe the FUN-zical weekend helped a little). Thanks to their great mood, I brought home a few more things than anticipated.






 These were the things I bought (this tale doesn't end here). The Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly is amazing. If you look at some of my older posts, I already have the Woosh Jelly but it's almost over and so I decided to try th…

The Kills

Due to the fact that I'm going to see them live this summer (for the second year in a row), this is a post dedicated to The Kills. Not only are they one of my favourite bands, they have a unique style when it comes to clothing and I was delighted to see Alison's pink hair last year!

And Spring gets a little closer

Image
I don't know how's the weather where you're reading this but here it's rainy and cold and grey. And I hate it!!!! I just want the sun to shine, maybe a little warmth (but not too much, I still want to wear my UGG boots a little more). Everywhere brands and designers are launching Spring/Summer collections and I already found some very interesting things at...tchanan, Bimba&Lola, that's where!

I only discovered this brand a little over a year ago and I am absolutely fascinated. It's fresh, it's girly and ladylike at the same time and a little extravagant.
They've already launched some items from the SS collection on their eshop and I decided to show my favourite (so far):



Light blue trousers that go great with a white shirt or a colourful top.


Two aweosme rings, love the colours!


Dress with a graphic pattern. Love the cut, the colours...


I hope they reveal more of the collection soon and I can't wait to see it!



XOXO,

Hello rain!

Image
It really feels like rainy days are here to stay, at least for a while. And I was wondering: how to keep being stylish when the weather is soo...bad?

Well, I opened google and started doing random searches about items a girl wears in rainy days and I found 3 things that are just adorable!


1 - Rain Boots. I'm usually not a fan, but these boots are so adorable with the bow! It makes them so feminine. And the blue/yellow combination is perfect. Find them here.



2 - A nice coat! I was actually looking for a trench coat in my searches but this baby came along and I couldn't resist it! The colour actually goes very well with the rain boots and the fur is lovely!
Find it here.



3 - The umbrella. I usually see people with umbrellas from IKEA or some other brand. And every once in a while I see someone with a cute umbrella. And google presented me with this umbrella and I found it amazing! It's lovely! Find it here.


I'm gonna continue to enjoy my rainy day and I hope you all have a lov…

M goes Bimba&Lola

So, it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of BIMBA&LOLA. I have posted several things from their Winter Collection, I have been sighing and wishing for a B&L leather bag...well, I just wanted to share some of my favourite pieces with you all. Well, the earrings and the ring don't really go along with the outfit, but I really really like them. 


1 - Shirt, 48€  2 - Sandals, 69€  3 - Ring, 17€  4 - Skirt, 37€  5 - Earrings, 31€  6 - Bag, 172€


Although these are items from the W'12 collection, everything put together just feels like Spring. The pink shade with the heels and the white shirt...I just can't wait to see what do they have ready for the Spring Collection - actually, I saw a few images from the showroom a fellow blogger attended, and everything seems sooo nice. I can't wait to see it!


I guess this is it for tonight, this was my little bit of inspiration!
XOXO,

M

Sales!

Image
I have to say I'm so so so happy! Yesterday I finally bought two things I've been wanting for a long time! Also, I didn't just want them, I really needed them!



Finally, my UGG Boots! My feet found Heaven and I'm walking on fluffy clouds whenever I wear them! Pretty boots!!
 And also, since I needed a pair of shoes, flats, to wear everyday that weren't CONVERSE, I decided a while ago to buy a pair of oxford shoes...trouble was finding a pair that was pretty, leather and NOT brown (can't stand the colour, sorry!). And PEPE JEANS showed up to save me (and my feet too :P )! I found my oxford shoes and they are GREY! I'm so happy with my new shoes (both the oxford and the boots!!). But...

My shopping spree wasn't through. My mind wandered to a pair of trousers I saw...guess where? That's right, BIMBA & LOLA! I can't remember the last time I tried on a pair of trousers that fit me so well...


High-waisted, navy blue with a black strip on the sides...Ca…
