Brighton Getaway

img_9980This weekend made for a brilliant impromptu Brighton visit. I met with two friends there at 10 in the morning and we went exploring. Since it was my first time there, I was eager to see this little gem of a town, as well as the infamous Brighton Pier that makes appearances in all pretty Instagrams (hint: I was disappointed).

Summer Dresses In London Weather

IMG_5961Interesting choice of dress on a cloudy London day, you might say. And you’re right, I was probably the brightest eye-soaring sight on the tube and I ain’t sorry about it. But it doesn’t have to be mid July for you to wear that floral maxi dress either. So check out this JD Williams lil vivid number. Is it green? It is yellow? Well, it’s exactly what you want it to be.  Continue reading “Summer Dresses In London Weather”

5 Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Ah, yes. The annoyingly temperamental season that gets you confused as to whether to throw on a jacket or not. I’m one of those people that will casually pull out of my bag a 1 liter water bottle, an umbrella, my cat, a scarf, a book, chocolate, a makeup bag and a plethora of other things that, excuse you, of course I need – so carrying a jacket with me comes naturally anyway.

L’Oreal 24h Matte v Bourjois Air Mat

FullSizeRender

Yep, totally making a reference to Batman v Superman in the title (which you will have to watch for yourself to see where you stand; I’m still on the fence about it) and please do tell me your opinions on it in the comments!

Anyway, this post will explore which matte foundation is better. Both drugstore, both hyped, both claiming to hold 24H – but which one does the job better?

To vegan or not to vegan?

veganIf you rolled your eyes at the title, pursed your lips or didn’t care at all, don’t bother. This post is not an attempt to convert y’all, but merely my honest experience with veganism/plant-based lifestyle.

See, vegans and vegetarians have become this hilarious meme everyone will laugh at and nobody thinks twice about it. Hell, even I sometimes still laugh. And no, I will not go into the “misunderstood life of vegans”, but mocking some people that are actually doing a good thing for the planet and glamorizing the all-knowing bacon eater has been taken a step too far. Oh and to clarify, when I introduce myself I do not give handshakes while saying “I’m vegan, nice to meet you too”.  Continue reading “To vegan or not to vegan?”

The Music Den #2

12788884_1132197690164999_1560876304_oIn terms of music, Kanye West was definitely the most noticeable and hilarious figure in February. From his tweet asking Zuckerberg for a small loan of $1 billion  (a Trump reference indeed) to the Wiz Khalifa shade and to Rose Amber’s tweet that still rules the Internet, Kanye was unstoppable this month with his online presence: he just won’t stop tweeting. Not to mention that he titled his album So help me God, Swish, Waves, just to ultimately settle for The Life of Pablo (wth?!), which, apparently, is neither referring to Escobar, nor Picasso, but Saint Paul. And it does make sense, since this album is slightly gospel, like West warned us about.

Holiday Makeup

If you haven’t got consumed already by the nerve-racking Christmas fever, don’t worry, there is still time for you to stress over gifts and plans. Makeup however, tends to brighten up my day; so go ahead and slap some confidence and glitter on your face and try not to get caught up in the materialistic side of the holidays.

I did think about not doing the classic gold eye – red lip but who was I kidding? What says Christmas better than this? Nothing, yeah, I know.
