HOW I STYLE A SHIRT DRESS IN WINTER


Hello lovelies,

Today’s post will have to be a quick one because I’m jammed with the uni stuff and I need to study a lot. Yes I am under a lot of pressure and I can’t wait for everything to be over because I don’t like this feeling. It’s too much to handle people. Still I have to admit that it’s nice to just sit and write a post and relax. I like to share these things with you guys.

So my plan for this week is actually study nonstop because I’ve got an exam that I have to pass no matter what otherwise it won’t be good. It’s quite a hard one but I think we can manage it. I hope so. So my week is going great so far (sarcasm). I do have to admit that I went out yesterday for a cup of tea with two of my dearest friends and we chatted about everything. We haven’t seen each other in a month or even more so we had a lot to say to one another. We were there almost 3 hours which is A LOT, almost too much. But it was nice to catch up. We always laugh when we hang out so much that my cheeks hurt and I’m pretty sure I’ve got a six pack from laughter as well. They’re really the sweetest persons I’ve met in my life. So I think this is my most exciting thing this week. Also I’m going to an aerobics tomorrow so we’ll see how that goes since I’m not a huge sports person. It’ll be a surprise to all of us. I just hope I don’t injure myself. Otherwise I will be stuck at home studying and hopefully it’ll be worth it. I just really need to pass this one because it’s really ruining my plans of finishing the uni on time.

My post for today is a fashion post. I did this shoot a while ago and I have to admit that I’m really happy with how it turned out. It’s got that modern, edgy vibe to it and that was exactly what I was going for. I love wearing shirt dresses so I wanted to incorporate them in winter as well. I just think it makes you look chic and classy in winter and in summer it makes you look pretty without even trying, because the dress does it all for you. Since it is winter, I added a black turtle neck underneath it and these amazing pleather trousers from C&A. They look leather on the front and normal at the back. I also really like the embroidery on it. They go perfectly with this outfit. For my shoes I chose ankle boots from H&M which are very common in my wardrobe already. I also got this amazing bag that can be a shoulder bag or a rucksack. I already showed it in one of my previous posts (check here). The last thing is this gorgeous long marble-like necklace from Accessorize.

Let me know what you think of the outfit. Do you like wearing shirt dresses like me and what do you think of this combination. Talk to you soon.

DUNGAREES IN WINTER


Hi guys

Winter is kicking it hard here in Slovenia but that doesn’t stop me from taking more outfit posts. Thank god for my sister, because she is also the one dragging me out to take pictures with her. I have to admit it’s cool to have someone who is also blogging and these sorts of things. That way you get things done, help each other and annoy one another to get that perfect shot. So yes I’m definitely grateful for my sister.

At the moment I have a lot of studying at school because it’s that time of the year. All the exams and the presentations and I am sort of packed with things. Also I have a few jobs at the weekends that I do so that also takes up a lot of my time. Still I have to say that things are going ok so far and I hope it’ll continue this way.

It’s already 2017; actually already the end of January and I have to admit that I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions. I was never that type of person that cared for these things. I always thought that if I want something to happen or if I want to do something, then I should just go for it. I shouldn’t restrict myself with resolutions or with ‘New Year, new me’ type of things. Just go for it. If you want to go to the gym in the middle of the year, go for it. Don’t wait for the next year. Just do things as you go. I also think that if you do things the moment you decide to do it, then it’s more interesting and you actually care for these things.

I have to admit that I still haven’t figured out things regarding my blog. I like having it and I like posting things here, but I am very inconsistent with it. I don’t post regularly and I post about things I like-clothes, beauty, books. Because of that I think the blog is all over the place and very hard to follow. So no, I still don’t have a plan about this topic. But I know I will have to sit down and decide how I want it to look like, how many times should I post… just the formalities actually and stick to it.
So that is all I wanted to share with you guys. 

In today’s post I am wearing one of my favourite clothing items at the moment. I am obsessed with dungarees and I love to style them. These one are from New Yorker and they were on sale for only 10€. I just think they are so easy to wear and it also brings back memories from when I was little because I used to wear them a lot. Here I am wearing them with a basic navy top by Tom Tailor. Over it I decided to throw on this black and grey cardigan from Tally Weijl with fringes at the bottom. I love layering in winter so that is what I was going for with this outfit. Of course since it is winter I had to have a beanie. This one is from Primark that I bought 3 years ago. For the shoes I went with these adorable dark silver ankle boots from Jello that have a snake print on them. The last thing is my bag or rucksack that is from Top shop.
I also have a similar post to this when I was in Paris and I wore different type of dungarees. You can check it here.

Let me know what you think of layering. Do you like it or do you prefer summer where you just throw on a dress and you’re good to go. Also let me know what you think of the outfit. Have a great day guys.


Outfit:
Beanie: Primark
Top: Tom Tailor

MY GO-TO COAT FOR WINTER

Hi guys,

As I’m writing this post, I should be doing stuff for uni but I’m the biggest procrastinator in the world. I am obsessed with vlogmas and just Youtube in general at the moment. People post so many amazing videos that I can’t stop watching. But the main focus is definitely vlogmas. The other thing that is keeping me from doing stuff for uni is just me being lazy. I always end up doing everything else. I go out with my friends or I help Maja with some blog stuff. I need to stop doing that because December is the busiest month of the year, regarding uni and life in general. I need to do all my shopping for birthdays and Christmas and I am also going away with my friends at the end of the month to celebrate New Year’s so I also need to think about that. It’s just so much stuff to do and I’m here sitting in my bed and writing a post which is also important for me because I love doing this. I love showing you guys stuff, whether it is outfit post, makeup, hair etc. It makes me feel relaxed and happy when I do it. I hope you enjoy it as well. I just wanted to update you what's going on at the moment in my life - so basically vlogmas and sleep whooops. Oh I also rediscovered Tumblr last week so I'm going through that as well. Yay all the opposite of what I should be doing. Now let’s get on with what I want to show you today. 

At the beginning of October I saw a lot of ladies wearing long coats. I’ve also seen it in magazines and on TV. It was practically everywhere. Now I’m sure a lot of you out there think that wearing a long coat looks like you’re wearing a bath robe or something, but I’ve literally fallen in love with this item. I just love the length of it. I think this is definitely the main reason. The second thing that I love about the long coats is the colour. They usually come in light grey or camel colour and I love both of the options. So I decided in November to go on a hunt for something similar. I came across two coats that I absolutely adored. The first one was from s.Oliver and it was this gorgeous camel colour and the length of it was PER-fect. The only thing that wasn’t perfect was the price. It was way too much for my budget so I decided to look for some more. Then I came across the one I’m wearing in the pictures. It’s by Dorothy Perkins and I also really liked it. The colour of it is a slightly darker shade of grey that I imagined, but everything else was great. It’s also quite thick so it’s perfect for winter, whereas the s.Oliver one was more of a transition coat so I couldn’t wear it in winter. So I think I found a perfect coat for me. I wear it all the time and it hasn’t failed me yet. I love to pair it with ankle boots because it makes it look prettier (I think high heels are the best option with these coats), but for today’s outfit I chose oxford shoes and it looks just fine. Underneath the coat I have a jumper from New Yorker and boyfriend jeans which are also from New Yorker. I love to keep it simple when I wear this coat because I think that’s the way it should be. It’s a quite simple look, but because of a coat I think it’s something special.

This is what I wanted to share with you guys today. Do you own a coat like that or do you prefer to wear a shorter length? Let me know in the comment and I’ll see you next time.

3 WINTER MAKEUP LOOKS PERFECT FOR ME

Hello ladies,

It’s such a beautiful day where I live. It’s sunny and quite warm even though it’s winter. Winter, as you all already know, is one of my least favourite seasons of the year, but I have to admit that I love different makeup looks when it comes to this time of the year. I can finally get out my darker shades of lipsticks and just experiment with them more. So for today’s post I want to show my 3 favourite makeup looks for winter. I have to tell you that they are the easiest makeup looks you’ll ever see because I don’t like to complicate things. I like to try new things of course but I don’t want it to take up a lot of my time. Yeah I’m a fussy person like that.

The 3 looks that you’ll see today are definitely something I wear on daily basis. I love to wake up in the morning and already know what I’m going to do to my face. Biggest focus is definitely on the lips. I am obsessed with wearing dark lipstick. I believe it makes the whole makeup look more fresh and sophisticated.


The first makeup look is called ‘’Dark Lips’’. For my eyes I used the Too Faced Natural Matte eyeshadow palette. I chose the darker shades in it. For the base I chose the colour Chocolate Cookie, for the crease I took Strapless and for the outer corner of the eye I opted for the mix of Risqué and Sexspresso. You can tell that the eyes are still quite nude, but I chose darker shades. The main focus is definitely the lips. I outlined my lips with a lip liner from S-he in the shade 003 and the lipstick is by Misslyn in the shade 119. I am obsessed with this colour, but I also like to switch this colour with the one by Mac in the shade A45 and it is called Quelle surprise. These two lipsticks are definitely my favourite berry shades. I sometimes like to add a thin eyeliner just to emphasize the eyes a bit.


The next one is called ‘’Bold Eyeliner’’. I must admit that I’m not very good when it comes to applying the eyeliner. I can never get it right. But for the last 3 months I’ve been practicing and I think I am getting the hang of it. When I wear eyeliner I don’t usually do much because I love when the focus is on the eyes. I do a bit of contouring because that I always do and then I add a nude lipstick. I contoured my face with Prime and Fine Contouring palette by Catrice in the shade Ashy radiance. On my lips I have a lip crayon Matt Lip Artist also by Catrice in the shade Best ROSEbuddies Forever. Lastly on my eyes I have a combination of two eyeliners which are Eye matic’ Dip Liner by Catrice (waterproof) in the shade Stay With Me and Eyeliner Pen by Essence (waterproof).


The last look for today is called ‘’Classic Red’’. I cannot have a makeup look that does not involve a classic red lipstick. I’ve always been a fan of them and I can never get enough of it. For this look I like to put something on my eyes as well as on my lips. Again I used the Too Faced Natural Matte eyeshadow palette, but I opted for lighter shades.  For the base I took the shade Honey Butter, for the crease I took Nudie and for the outer corner of the eye I have a mix of Chocolate Cookie and Strapless. I blended all out as much as I could and that’s that. Of course I contoured and everything and the last step are my lips. I wore a lip liner by S-he in the shade 004 and a Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 107. That is my look completed.

Let me know what your go-to makeup look is for winter. Hope you liked this post. Comment your thoughts below and I’ll see you soon.

SIMPLE DUO DUTCH BRAIDS



Hello everyone.

Right now it’s 1.40 am and I decided to write a post but I’ll be posting it at 12 pm because everyone’s asleep right now. When I get frustrated at something or someone I always like to do something with myself. I hate lying in bed and think about what happened. So today’s that day (or night) and I decided to write this post. Some people are just so hypocritical and ignorant. I know a lot of people judge you but don’t even know you. I mean what is up with that? Okay if you are being judged by a friend or a family but by someone you don’t even know very well? By someone who you don’t talk to on a daily basis? What is that? I just don’t get some people. I mean usually these things don’t upset me because I’ve seen a lot of stupid things but today I was actually in shock that I got a certain remark. After a few moments and a talk with my friend I realised it’s not worth my time. I mean these things happen on a daily basis. People are that way. They surprise you in any way possible. All I can say is: Let it go. If we were worried about every single stupid thing in our lives we would always live under a lot of stress. So I learned to let it go. You only need your truest friends and your family in your life. That’s more than enough. J  Now let’s go on with the actual post.

Two years ago I was obsessed with making different hairstyles because it was so long and I always liked doing something with it. When I was little my mum also used to do all sorts of things with my hair and I always liked it. I have to admit though that sometimes it was painful but in the end totally worth it. Last year in November I cut my hair to a shoulder length and since then I have to admit I haven't done anything with my hair. I always air or blow dried it and that was it. I guess I lost interest in making hairstyles because my hair was short and I always thought you can do nothing with it. Or I even lost interest in hairstyling my hair in general. Anyway now I have to say that I am back with making hairstyles.

I love watching Youtube videos where they show different hairstyles and they make everything look so easy (and it actually is really simple). So I decided to continue this obsession from two years ago. I want to show my hairstyles and how I like to style my type of hair. My hair is pretty thick and pretty easy to style with. The length of it is sort of medium so it’s not very long yet –I have to wait for it to grow out so I can make some weird things with it ;)

Today I have a very simple hairstyle for you. I love making dutch braids. I actually live with them all the time. They’re SO easy to make and it looks like you’ve put a lot of effort into it. It’s amazing how they turn out. The key to this braid is that you make a braid from under. When you add hair to the braid you put it under so that the braid has a 3D effect – it stands out and it looks a-mazing. I love making two or just one braid and it looks great in both ways. You can also pull out bits of your hair to make it messier or you add bobby pins to look more polished. Both ways are effective and won’t let you down.

That’s what I wanted to show you for today’s post. I hope you like it and stay tuned for more hairstyles in the future because I’m super excited to do some more. My obsession is back. Have a great weekend.
