Forever wishlist: Two things!

Image
There are two things I really want. One of them might be easier to acquire, but still these two items are on my wishlist and have been there for quite sometime.


Flower by KENZO and LEVI'S Shorts. The EDP has been on my wishlist f-o-r-e-v-e-r!! The fragrance is divine and I always smile whenever I smell it. As for the shorts, I have recently developed a huge love for shorts, specially high waisted ones and these are a must have, so I've been searching for them and I can't wait to find the perfect ones!

How about you? Anything on your wishlist?
Happy tuesday.
XOXO,

Wear-no-makeup-Monday

Yes, I was too lazy to put any makeup today. But I did treat my body to a nice bath and made it special by using a bath melt from LUSH. I believe the one I have is an old one and no longer for sale, but it sure is amazing. It's pink and has some cherries.


The pictures don't do it justice, but the colour of the water was amazing and the bath melt left my skin feeling super soft. I'm surely going to try another one.

The rest of the day was pretty normal and so was my outfit. But, once more, Paco joined me to make you smile this monday!

Well my lovelies, here's to another sunday night! I know everyone's shivering and fearing the begining of another week, but let's do some positive thinking. It's a whole new week to blog (for those of you who have a blog), to mix outfits, to find places to relax in your city. A whole new week that can be filled with excitement and wonders.

As for my sunday, it started off with a lovely breakfast: croissant, hot chocolate, scones, sun and a beautiful view of the river. Here's my part of the breakfast and today's outfit!


Jeans: PULL & BEAR
Tshirt: DISNEYLAND Paris
Shirt: LA SENZA
Sneakers: CONVERSE ALL STARS
Bag: BIMBA & LOLA

Necklace: ACCESSORIZE
Earrings: ACCESSORIZE
Left hand ring: STONE BY STONE
Right hand ring: ACCESSORIZE

After the wonderful breakfast, I came home and did something I'd been missing for a long time: I played The Sims 3! I'm an addict and I just started a new game. And Paco decided to keep me company while I …

Daenerys, LUSH and some Somersby

Hello everyone! I have been away for a few days, I know, but I'll try to make it up!
I missed writting and showing things and since the last days all had something for me show, I decided to put everything together.

Wednesday night I went on a date with my boyfriend. We had a wonderful dinner at our favourite italian restaurant, Casanova. The weather was wonderful, everything perfect. On out way back, we stopped by the Game of Thrones exhibit and saw some of the costumes used in the tv series. I took pictures of my favourite two costumes:



 It felt amazing to see the costumes. I didn't take a picture of it then, maybe today I will, but Richard Madden's costume made me realize he's so tall! I had no idea and I'll try to show it to you today.
The photographs are of Queen Cersei's and Daenerys' costumes. I cannot place Cersei's gown in the series, but Daenerys wore this blue dress with trousers in the begining of season 3. Both outfits fit the characters beautif…

Oh you little devil!

Dear Spring,

I'd forgotten what your arrival means. Besides good weather, it means my nearly-allergies will begin to manifest themselves.


Since you're making me feel sick, I'll just have to drink tea from this stylish pot and hope I feel better tomorrow!

XOXO,

What inspires me!

Image
Somedays I just wake up feeling a little uninspired and I start doing random searches, in my head, through my music, in the web, anything to pick me up. I'm writting this as I listen to the complete OST of The Nightmare Before Christmas, one of my favourite movies of all time.

My search today seems a little random (perhaps because the album is on shuffle mode?), but these are all small things that inspire me, one way or another.



Just a little note: The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a book I really want to read; The Rite of Spring is my favourite orchestral piece; 36 Views of Mount Fuji is a brilliant collection of japonese illustrations and you can see them all online. The remaining images are things that I look for in my clothing, ideas for my room, icons I look up to. 

All of the images were taken from Google except the last one. I took it on a trip to Sintra (Portugal).

XOXO,

M

Shine on you crazy diamonds

I was browsing for stuff on the internet and I decided to see what was happening on IFB. And so I came across this week's IFB Project: Show us your jewels. Come on, could it be any better?

I love my jewelry. I have too many and I'm always looking for more. And my boyfriend gives me a special something every now and then!

Funny how I knew exactly which pieces I wanted to show. And they relate to three people: my boyfriend, my father and my mother. Let's see them!


 All the pieces in the photos above were given to me by my boyfriend. Curiously enough, the first one he gave me was this amber heart, just above here. The heart is made of amber and the string is silver. He gave it to me as a Christmas gift, 2011.
The birds' necklace and the bimba & lola bracelet were given to me over the summer, as well as the onix bracelet and earrings (birthday gift).
Moving on we have the blue and pinkish earrings, which are actually saphires and rubies. The rubies were a random gift and t…
