3 Fun Ways to Wear a Little Black Dress


A lot of things happened between the last post and this one! 
  1. I dyed my hair! I am blonde now! It was quite a process since I have waaaay too much hair. And that is an undeerstatement! (let me know if you want me to make a post all about my experience!)
  2. I went to Gypsy Warrior in Ridgewood, NJ (finally!) and I fell in love with the little town and Gyspsy Warrior itself! :D
That's it! Guess not THAT many things but the hair change was definitely a big one! :)

On today's post I wanted to show you my favorite purchase at Gypsy Warrior and fun, quirky ways to style it! 
Here goes:

Look #1: Rainy Day

Dress: Gypsy Warrior; Boots: Doctor Martens; Bracelet: Gypsy Warrior; Earring: H&M

This dress is just perfect for all year round! And for one of those rainy summer days that get a bit chilly and NEVER stops raining. Pairing it with some rubber boots is just the perfect way. PS: This is great for the transition between Summer and Fall! ;D

Look #2: Can you see them?

Dress: Gypsy Warrior; Shoes: Steve Madden; Socks: Monki; Ring Bracelet: H&M

I have been in love with these see through jelly flats! SO 90S! I decided to pair them with some funky socks, but I also rock them without socks (just gotta have them toes painted!). Since I thought the shoes were attention grabbing already, I decided to not wear too many accessories. I just put on my triangle ring bracelet (keeping the geometric theme ;D).

Look #3: Flower Daisy Power!

Dress: Gypsy Warrior; Shoes: Bamboo; Sunglasses: Target; Flower Crown: Local Boutique; Assorted Rings: H&M, Gina Tricot & Topshop; Bracelet: Ted Baker

I know that this outfit is not everyone's cup of tea. I would definitely tone it down depending on where I'd go. But I couldn't resist! After all, I clearly LOVE daisies! :P
I am, again, rock some cool 90s jellies but these have flatforms. Obviously a flower crown was needed and some hippie inspired sunglasses! :D (You can't see but I even had Daisy stud earrings on! #addicted)

Hope you liked it! What is your favorite way to wear a little black dress?

My Summer Makeup Routine


It has been almost a week since I graduated, and I must say that life without high school feels pretty good! :D
So, today I have for you my Summer Makeup Routine. I have found some new techniques that have been working pretty well with me and are worthy sharing!

Plaid shirt: Garage; Bracelet: Francesca's

This is not what I wear every single day, I usually do versions of it, changing the lip color or an eyeshadow, but the idea is pretty much the same!  :D

Le Face

1. Foundation/Tinted Moisturizer: Apply MAC Studio Moisture Tint in Light with my RealTechniques Expert Face Brush
2. Concealer: Apply MAC's Studio Finish Concealer in NC15 under the eyes and anywhere you want to cover up with a concealer brush (I use Sephora's #100)
3. Setting your concealer: Apply undereye setting powder by E.L.F. with a Sigma E60, or any shader brush. ( I found that this helps me keep the concealer where it should be and it is pretty cheap
4. Primer: Apply Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion on eyelids

Les Eyes

1. All over lid shadow: Apply the light eyeshadow from the NYX Love in Florence pallet in Gelato For Two, using a Sigma E60
2. Crease shadow: Time to add depth to your eyes. For this makeup in particular I used MAC's Brown Down with a Sigma E25 ( I usually go for a denser blending brush for my crease)
3. The liner: I have recently stopped using eyeliner and now I am only using black eyeshadow, that way if I mess up, I can just smoke it out and looks just as good. ;)
Here I used NYX Black and applied with a Sigma E65
4. Top Lashes: Apply Maybelline's Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara to top lashes only
5. Bottom Lashes: apply the lower lashes brush of the Falsies Big Eyes Mascara to you bottom lashes. ( I feel like the smaller brush gives me more precision and doesn't put too much product on my bottom lashes, since they are pretty long)

Les Lips & Cheeks

1. Blush: Apply Nars blush in Mata Hari (a gorgeous pale pink color) with a Sigma F40
2. Lipstick: Apply Givenchy lipstick in Fuchsia Irr├ęsistible (205). BTW, I am in love with this lipstick! The case is made a legit leather, totally worth the splurge! It is super matte but also super moisturizing!

That is all! Hope you guys liked the post and make sure to tell me your everyday makeup looks or tell me if you're recreated this one! I would love to know.

What's in my bag: Mini bags edition


I have been obsessed with mini bags lately, so it is only obvious that I tell you what I have been carrying in them. Especially because girls tend to carry a lot in their huge bags (it's okay I do it even in the tiny ones, except I can't fit that many things)

The bags that I have been using non-stop are these:

The one in the left is a bag from H&M that kind of reminds me of the Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip bag.
The middle one (my favorite) is a mini Mac by Rebecca Minkoff, I love the blue-ish lilac color and the pattern!
And last but not least, the one in the right is by a brand caller Like Dreams. I bought it in Ross though.

Now let's dive in...

1. Target wallet (super spacious, practical and, the best part, not that expensive.
2. Keys with a Lego Dracula and the Berlin Stop Sign Doll thingy keychains.
3. Apple earpods
4. iPhone 5s with a Kate Spade cover (I love Kate Spade's iPhone covers! They are the cutest!)
5. MAKE UP FOR EVER lipstick in #36. (It is a really pretty hot pink)
6. EOS lip balm in tangerine.
7. GAP sunglasses (I love that the sides are two different bright neon colors!)

That is all that I carry in my bag. 
What do you carry in yours?
Do you prefer big or smaller bags?

Weekend Haul: beauty, fashion and more


This weekend I bought a couple of things, so I thought I'd share with you!

Sweater from Forever 21 - $19.80
Shiny leggings from Garage - $19.90
I didn't buy much clothing, but I did fall in love with these shiny leggings that remind me of Disco Pants and this cute white and leopard sweater.

Charlotte Russe earrings - 2 for $10.00
I did get accessories! I was looking for gold earring that were not too big. I found these at Charlotte Russe and with a pretty good deal.


I bought a couple of things at Ulta and Sephora, since I couldn't resist!

 I bought two lipsticks at Ulta, since all NYX cosmetics were buy one get one half off (And I can never resist a good old lipstick!)

NYX Lipstick in Electra
NYX Lipstick in DOLL

I also bought a NYX pallet that was on sale.
The colors are super nice and the pigmentation is pretty good.

Love in Florence NYX pallet in Gelato for Two

Now, at Sephora I finally managed to buy my first Nars product.
 Since I've been wanting a darker color of blush, I bought one by Nars since it didn't have much shimmer and that's always a plus! :P

Nars blush in Mata Hari



I also bought some random things.

At HotTopic, I bought Harry Potter's Bertie Bott's Beans.


And at Bath and Body Works I bought a mini shower gel and three candles.

Paris Amour shower gel.
Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts candle
Strawberry sorbet candle
Raspberry Peach Macaron candle

What have you recently bought?
