Coats

Image
I've been wanting a winter coat for a while now. I wanted it to be feminine, maybe classic in shape to be in rotation for many winters, but also with a modern or edgy detail.
I found two coats that fit the criteria, but I can't seem to pick one!

Both from UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON, these coats have captured my eye. The red seems to be better since I already have too many black coats, but you can never go wrong with a black coat.
What do you say?



XOXO,

High up in the clouds

Yesterday was I Seek Inspiration's first anniversary! It was hard and it didn't always pay up in the beginning, but I kept doing it because I like it! I blog because I want, when I want. And that makes me happy!This little spot on the blogsphere couldn't have made it through without followers, so thanks to all of you, who keep reading and coming back for more posts.  And thanks to my boyfriend, who believed in me and takes pictures of me in random places for the outfit posts! :)
To brighten up this grey monday, take a look of the pictures I took yesterday, as I approached my beautiful Lisbon.

As for today, it's a tights-and-boots kind of day!

XOXO,
M

The rain in Spain falls mainly in the plain

If you follow my little daily adventures on Instagram, you might have noticed I caught a plane yesterday!
Can you guess where I'm at? The title has a hint... That's right, I'm in Spain, particularly in Madrid, visting my special someone! My boyfriend moved here to study double bass, so I'm going to be posting and publishing from here sometimes! :) It is indeed a beautiful city and despite the bad weather, I managed to walk a little.  I'll leave you with a few pictures I took today and tomorrow I'll show you where I went for dinner, since today's a very special day!


See you all tomorrow and have a wonderful and happy friday!
XOXO,

That time of the year

When skies turn grey, when leaves fill the sidewalks and wind is always in the air.When whool and parkas and raincoats become an everyday choice. When boots are crucial. That time of the year is here!

Beauty on the weekend

Image
Hello lovelies! Today I'm showing you my beauty routine for this weekend. I could've done it any day, but weekends are proving to be the perfect time. 

Step 1: Get it clean!


There would have been a time when I'd complete neglect the importance of cleaning the skin. Now, at least once a week I try to apply a facial mask, followed by an exfoliation. LUSH is key here, since both products are theirs. I've been using their masks for a while now (third pot, haha) and they really do wonders and this Rudolph is absolutely fabulous. Cucumber, lavender oil, oat and tofu for a glowing, clean and fresh face. Ocean Salt follows to complete the cleansing. 
As for my body, I changed the scent of my THE BODY SHOP products to the Brazilian Nut and the scrub has a creamy texture that's harder to spread than the one I had before, but as far as clean and hydration goes, it's the best!


Step 2: Toner



They say Tea Tree has a lot of benefits for the skin. As for me, it's fresh and it c…

Ok, now I feel it!

After a few days of very strange weather, today I woke up to find clouds, heavy grey clouds and a chillness in the air that mean one thing: Fall is here. And it's also supposed to rain. Today. 

So, I've been looking for somethings I might buy for this season (and of very good use for next season as well) and I found these:


OYSHO
Last year I bough a sweater from OYSHO, one with cashmere and a sheep print and it became an instant favourite. Given the current weather conditions, I think it's going to be worn today!

Now to current tendencies: dark lipsticks seem to really be something to wear this year and I decided to buy one and give it a try. It took me sometime to actually buy it, I wanted a dark purple and only seemed to find brown and burgundy (although burgundy is not out of the question, maybe later :) ). I decided to buy one from H&M. Here's a shot from yesterday, I hope you like it!





Have a lovely friday and an awesome weekend!
XOXO,

Lately

Image
It's only tuesday , but I feel like it's friday or something. The past 3 days have been a caos, between work at a music school and helping out at rehearsals ( I'm working for this amazing orchestra, I'm so happy), I have had little time to rest, not to mention blogging. 
For today's work outfit, I decided on a t-shirt+jeans+ballerinas combination, it never goes wrong. Plus, it's a Rubber Soul t-shirt, impossible to go wrong!
I made a purchase on saturday that I have not shown yet, but that will have to wait a little while longer, I want to write a review as soon as I try it. But, I brought a little sample of a new arrival at LUSH:

It's a Christmas edition product and it's a soap. Any guesses? My purchase was also a LUSH Christmas edition product, but more on that later.
Also,here are some headshots from today and a new acquisition from IKEA, the MYKEN mirror!

Hello beauties!
Working has made quite an impact on my blogging routines and I'm very sorry for that. And today is no exception, even if it's a sunday. I woke up early to pick a musician at the airport but I decided to make good use of my time and write a quick post.  Like I said, I'll be working so I had to select some work-appropriate clothes, but I managed to stay casual. I'm not a fan of selfies while being outdoors, so for now, I can only show you this:

Bag: DESIGUAL Pants: BIMBA & LOLA Ballerinas: MELISSA
I promisse to take a full body picture, but for now, what do you think of these:

Have a good sunday! XOXO,
M
