Acne Studios gold earrings- A birthday gift from me to me

A birthday is a good day to treat your self with something. I know the idea is that you get spoiled by family and friends, but let’s be honest who knows best what you want but yourself?

Acne Studios Nanni gold earrings. The perfect everyday statement earring you will ever need.

I happened to spend my birthday in Paris when I was there a few weeks ago for work, and it just so happens that the Acne Studios store was on sale and just around the corner from the Acne showroom where I was working. My two managers insisted that I went there to just ten minutes before our appointment to see if I could find myself something, so this might be one of my quickest buys ever.

I must admit I have been dreaming about those earrings since they came out so even if the actual buying was quick it wasn’t very impulsive, and it was my birthday after all. They are so versatile that they basically look good with anything, especially now in summer with a bit of tan, yay!

Unfortunately, they seem to be sold out everywhere, but here is a similar pair.

The return of the leggings and lunch with my favorite Italian

My beautiful and delicious coffee art with a message from April's cafe Boutique 1 in London

Last week I had the pleasure to enjoy a lunch with my Italian friend Ilaria at the fabulous restaurant April’s Cafe just next to the shop Boutique 1 (Shops and lunch places together truly are the best!). It was my day off and I couldn’t have had a better lunch date, and where else would you get a coffee with “Bela” written in the foam (Hey one L missing but it’s the thought that counts no?)

Anyhow, let’s change subject to the outfit.

I'm loving the new trend that are bringing back the leggings. Here worn with a oversized shirt from SJYP, slingbacks from And Other Stories and tote from Jigsaw.

Leggings tights or what ever you may be calling it, it is back! Now you can happily wear leggings even if you are not on your way to the gym. I must say I embraced this trend right way, can we talk about how comfy they are? Since I will be taking a four-hour flight to Turkey in ten days, these leggings will definitely be a part of my airplane outfit. Like a pajama but not.

And the best part is that it really doesn’t have to cost a lot, I gathered my favorites in the shop right now below. I would style them with a shirt like above, or a big chunky knit for colder days.

My everyday (almost non existing ) make-up routine

My makeup must have for a natural makeup. Balm dotcom from Glossier, lipbalm from lipstickqueen, blush from Bobbi Brown, foundation primer from Laura Mercier and conceler from Ysl touche eclat.

I have never been a big makeup fan, sure I have done throughout the years the usual blush, mascara, eyeliner kinda thing, but I always been more of a skincare fan rather than covering up my face. Even times when I have got my makeup done professionally I never really felt comfortable or beautiful in it, true story. I still put a little bit on just to feel more fresh and awake when showing up at work, so I though I walk you through my favorites right now. Let’s go!

I am not very dark under my eyes so YSL Touche Eclat number 1 is really perfect for me, it covers but not too much and gives a kind of see through feeling and just light up the skin slightly. A must for my sometimes tired eyes. HERE

If it’s something I love on the skin then it is glow, the more the merrier. This miracle primer gives you a healthy glowy and smooth skin, perfect for me who avoids foundations. I don’t use it too much during summer as the sun kissed skin already gives you a glow but during winter time this is a life saver. HERE

My makeup routine must have for a natural makeup. Creme blush and lip from Bobbi Brown.

I don’t know what it is but I have this thing for liquid makeup, especially when it comes to blushes. I feel like a powder variant can sometimes dry out the skin while a creme one makes it look more natural and glowy (again I LOVE glow). This one does the job perfectly! HERE

My makeup routine must have for a natural makeup. Balm dotcom from Glossier that I use as a eye shadow for a wet look and as a highlighter on the cheek bones.

I heard a rumor that Glossier will come to London (anyone who has more info on that please comment and tell me more!?) For now you can buy this multi balm at Net-a-Porter so already that is good for us Europeans. This balm is a must. I personally use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones and as an eyeshadow when you want that dewy look, but you can use it on your lips and hands as well. HERE

My makeup routine must have for a natural makeup. Lipbalm from Lipstick Queen that last forever and give you the perfect tint and gloss for a natural look.

Last but definitely not least I finish up my makeup with this lip balm, It gives you that natural and glossy shade without being too much or too little. And it’s last for a very long time compared to other balms. HERE

That was my everyday make-up, as you can see it’s all very natural, just the way I like it.

Sunny beaches tee from Ganni and a lunch in the park

Casual summer outfit post shot in London soho, wearing tee from Ganni, jeans from Acne Studios and slides from H&M.

Ok, so I’m not quite there yet, at the sunny beaches that is ( 14 days but who’s counting?) but there is no harm bringing the beaches to the city is there? At least on a t-shirt.

Danish brand Ganni always does nice, fun and affordable t-shirt with prints, it’s kinda their thing. Remember this one from a few season ago?

I’m also back in business with my lovely photographer and friend Maryam, she has been really busy lately but the other day we managed to squeeze in a lunch in the park, with juice and wrap from our favorite place in Soho. And then we shot some outfit photos of course, as you can see on the pictures above. Thank you Maryam for always making me feel good in front of the camera!
