HALLOWEEN TAG!


I feel like I might have gone a bit far with this video´s thumbnail! hehe… I was tagged by Andy and Tay (link to their channel on the video description) to film this Halloween video and I had so much fun answering their questions. I have to say I feel a bit like a rookie as its my first tag video and now I want to film more tag videos!

I would love to hear back from you so let me know your answer to the questions on a comment, can be all of them or just a few! Hope you have loads of fun on Halloween and if you have nothing planed, how´s about a horror film marathon?

TOP 10 HORROR MOVIES


As we are very close to Halloween, I thought it would be nice to make a list of all the films I want to watch this year and share it with you! Let me know if any of your favourites are in the list and also leave a comment with the films that put you in the Halloween spooky mood.





FIJIAN DREAMS...


I love everything about Autumn, I love wearing coats, beanies and drinking hot chocolate whilst a candle is burning and Im warming up with a chunky blanket but from time to time its nice to day dream about a tropical destination and its also uplifting to wear a fragrance that evokes warm sand, sunlight and azurite looking waters.


Before I go any further, I must confess I am not really into seasonal scents; maybe some of you will get me... when it comet to fragrances and many other things I always go for what I really like and the perfect example is this fragrance by The Body Shop.


I bought it right before Autumn started and since then, its been my go-to scent. Im not a perfume guru but I will do my best to describe it to you; it has a clean smell, a few floral notes and I dare to say it has a very gentle touch of roses but not too much to make it dry, it also has delicious water lotus notes that make it feel almost like a gentle breeze.


I find it perfect for a morning pick-me-up, or as a little boost before heading to the gym. It has enough power to stay pretty much all morning until the middle of the day but not too much to annoy.

If the previous wasn't enough day dreaming material… the lovely packaging can do as a background to submerge into a fijian dream and leave the Autumn blues behind.

MY AUTUMN GO-TO OUTFIT






I might have been wearing one or two of these pieces pretty much all week… okay, maybe I have been wearing this outfit more than twice this week. Ahh… in my defence I am in love with this top, the super cozy blanket wrap I bought on my last thrift haul and those boots… well, those boots are my favourite shoes right now.

You know when you find a whole bunch of amazing clothes that you wish you could wear them everyday? That happens to be my situation right now. Although Im not attempting to make this my uniform (then I guess the fun of wearing it would fade eventually) I have been using each thing on separate throughout the week.

I do have to say, as much as I am in love with those boots, it takes some time to get used to them, if you happen to wear flats and sneakers as much as I do, but I find them so fun and adventurous that I simply cannot stop wearing them. I guess some people do extreme sports and some others just wear complicated shoes!

STILA ROCKY ROAD EYE SHADOW TRIO


Before we get deep into hot cocoa and ginger bread lattes, lets talk about ice cream! With so many things that I wanted to tell you,  I almost forgot to write about my favourite eye shadow of the moment. Bad Marieta, How could you? 


Stila´s limited edition Ice Cream Eyeshadow Trio is one of the most fun things I loved this summer, it has a very light, almost fairy dust complexion that shimmers so delicately it leaves a flattering glow on the eyes. I find eyeshadow trios super helpful and perfect for a care free but still elaborate make up and the one in the pictures has been my daily choice for the last few months.


Although it is a summery palette the Rocky Road trio can easily be used as part of any morning make up. You know, whenever you have to get up early on a cold morning and you want some shimmering sign of sunlight glow to brighten the dark days.


The three parts balance each other beautifully, starting with the almost translucent lilac hue which I also found helpful for highlighting brows. Continued by a graphite-like hue that appears to be a very dark shadow but keeps the translucent effect and lastly the darkest of the shadows, a brown, matte looking shadow that turns out to have some shimmer too. And what can I say about the packaging, it is a super cute cardboard pot that talks for itself and it made me fell in love with this eye shadows almost instantly.

BREAKING A BAD HABIT...



Its video time! Today I have a very special video for you. As its been a year since I stopped bitting my nails, a horrible habit I had for years, I thought it would be of great help for me, and maybe for others that want to stop too, to make this video and include all the things that helped me overcome this habit.

Hope you find this video helpful to stop this and any other bad habit!

AUTUMN WISHLIST



Am I the only one who thinks October is the official time to start wearing boots, coats and beanies? Autumn starts on September but I´ve always felt like waiting a bit and getting into the Autumn mood in October. Do you feel the same?

With the whether transition comes the colder days and its also time to covet a couple of new things for the season. Here are some of the things I would love to have this year.


Starting with those amazing JC boots. Somehow I´ve developed an obsession with very high platforms and heels, even though my feet would prefer to stay as close to the ground as possible, right now I am loving everything platforms, flaforms and chunky heels too. Also, I´ve never really been a red lipstick kind of girl until this year and I think the new lipsticks by Anna Sui and Charlotte Tilbury are THEE lipsticks to have this fall.

I´ve also been coveting an animal print coat. Nothing in particular really, just one that will look cute, chic and warm. So far, this one from Mango seems to embody the previous description. Now I have to confess something about wrap blankets, I´ve always loved them but I´ve restrained myself from wearing them because I thought they made me look like a granny or someone out of a western… and it seems that now, everyone is in love with them!! I guess its time for me to wear mine proudly and also, start following my style instinct more often.

Finally, two things that I fell in love with as soon as I spotted them. Jo Malone´s new fragrance is what I want to wear this fall. As soon as I smelled the scented card I received one morning, I wanted to have some of that but to be honest, it is slightly out of my budget right now so I will have to conform with something else, who knows, I might get it at some point! 

A similar thing happened with this Anna Sui mirror. It was love at first sight, not too pricey but I keep forgetting to add it to my shopping bag. Why?… I don´t know but, I do love how magic it looks, its like something Maleficent would have on her chest drawer, a portable version of her magic mirror!

That´s it, leave a comment if we share similar wish lists and/ or also let me know what things you love about Autumn!
