‘Twas the Time for Tweed

Classic, grown up, subdued prints are major this fall. Plaid, houndstooth, animal prints – the classic neutral tones, not the neon, LMFAO Party Rock music video type colours – and tweed.

So I take a very adult, mature trend and decide to wear it like a school girl.

Project 10 Pan – Powder Purge

In order to curb my desire to acquire more makeup products, I allocate a “small” space in my vanity for them so that I’m constantly faced with the fact that there’s no space for new things. Doesn’t really work. My drawers are filled beyond capacity, and I’ve gotten to the point where it’s not my need for tidiness and practicality that’s stopping me from getting more, it’s physics. It just. won’t. fit.

Burberry Unboxing – Check it out

See what I did there? The Burberry check pattern is probably one of the most recognisable ever – and very on par with the brand itself, it stands the test of time, being that it was registered as a trademark 99 years ago.

This is a designer that I consider carries a genuinely classic collection – yes, because many pieces that get dubbed as “timeless” have a fashion life of about 10 years, but the Burberry trench coat is forever in style. This isn’t the time for a trench unboxing, unfortunately, my wallet is still unprepared for such, but I got myself the next best thing.

My kryptonite.

My love.

My everything: shoes.

Makeup Memory Lane – A look at cult favourites

Having been a makeup hoarder lover for over 10 years, I’ve been trough the online growth of the beauty community. Back in 2008, I wanted to learn how to make my eyes look bigger (they’re tiny) with makeup and so I went on youtube, had almost no relevant search results, and one of the first videos I found and watched was from Panacea81 (Lauren Luke). This was when she was on the rise. That was basically the launch of beauty gurus on youtube.

Guys, I remember the video of the person who invented project pan. I will be doing one soon so I’ll expand on this on that post.

I’ve gone through all the makeup fads since makeup started being a thing in social media. Trends, brands, influencers came and went and I still have the products to remember – them and the money I spent at the time. Here’s a list of some real historical cult favourites (and please, if you ever – or still – own any of these, tell me in the comments, so I don’t feel ancient alone).

Dark Flowers – a floral dress for the end of summer

We had no summer this year. Climate change is here to stay. There was sun, sometimes, but there was no heat. I’m used to 28º Celsius and up during Summer’s 3 months, and we had about two weeks of that.

I’m already missing something I haven’t had, so you can understand the dark mood.

Turkey Beauty Haul

How cool would it be if this post was about me buying anti-wrinkle masks and neck cream for turkeys?

Not very much? Okay.

No cream for you.

Like I mentioned before, when I’m travelling abroad I take the opportunity to get beauty items that are not available in my home country. This time was no different.

An ugly sneaker, by any other name, is still ugly.

I feel like ranting, so indulge me.

I’ve been in Farfetch’s website lately to take advantage of their 30% extra of sale items, and obviously, I’ve browsed the shoe section. Since I tend to remove sneakers from my page – I always filter for mid and high heels – I had the hope feeling that the ugly shoe trend might be gone by now. I mean, it’s been a year.

How naive of me.
