Sweater Weather Wardrobe: The Must-Haves + 2015 Goals!

Happy Sunday everyone and Happy (late) New Year!


I hope the new year has been treating you kind so far. I hope you're carrying your 2015 resolutions through . I'm trying to at least. But more on that later.

The temperatures have been dropping drastically during the past couple of weeks.  We're really not used to this kind of cold here, so taking all measures necessary against this tough weather is not an easy task. Especially when it comes to dressing cute.

Despite what you've been told you actually can dress nice and chic while feeling warm and cozy.

Steal Her Style: Olivia Palermo

Hello lovelies,

Are you excited for New Year's Eve yet?

It took me forever to figure out my NYE plans and they're finally all set. That night tends to be quite stressful. You feel like you have to go somewhere, you have to have fun. Word of advice: don't give in to the pressure. If you don't feel like doing anything save yourself from the crazy traffic and crammed clubs and bars and stay at home. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I know because I was literally ready to give up making all these plans, because it was just so stressful. But I somehow managed to arrange something for that night.

In case you're still wondering what to wear on the big night I have a couple of posts dedicated to that:
The New Party Makeup
Celebrity-inspired Partywear
Festive Casual Looks

But now on to something entirely different: this post has some serious dose of Olivia Palermo inspiration (if you didn't figure it out already lol). If you've followed this blog for some time now you might have noticed a have a slight obsession with Olivia Palermo and her style. I mean who can deny that, that woman is perfection. She goes from modern glamorous to boho chic in no time and she always manages to look polished wherever she goes. That is my motto: look polished no matter what you wear. Whether it is a simple tee, shorts and ballet flats or an LBD and stilettos make sure your outfit comes together and looks sophisticated and elegant.


I broke down for you some of her killer looks and recreated them using more affordable items.

DIY Beauty: 3 Tested & Recommended Face Masks (+ bonus toner recipe!)

Hello my lovely readers,

Merry Christmas!



I don't know about you, but on Christmas Eve this year I'll stay in, light up some candles (Yankee "Honey glow" is my current fave!) and go on full cozy cocooning mode. I just finished doing my face masks so I can be glowing tomorrow and I'm about to do my nails. Now I just need to make myself a cup of hot cocoa and put on a Christmas flick to set the festive mood.

Holiday Post #3: Celebrity-inspired Partywear


Hello lovely readers,

How are you? There are only 15 days left 'till Christmas! Whaaaa!!! Time has really flown by, I can't believe we're already almost halfway through December. It feels like yesterday when I was making all these posts about Fall and we were talking about our favorite pumpkin spice-scented things.

November Of Style: A Series of OOTDs

Hello my festive readers,



How are you doing? I hope you enjoyed my last Holiday Makeup post, because I really loved writing it. Today's post is not gonna feature a lot of written content, just a few of my favorite looks that I wore during November. Back in August I decided to do these types of posts every once in a while because it's more interesting to feature a bunch of looks in one go, rather than dedicate a whole post to one outfit.

Shopping 101: The 9 Golden Rules

Hello lovely readers,

Hope you're having a happy Sunday!



Yesterday I went shopping and got myself quite a few goodies which I'm really excited to wear and show you in the future. Shopping is such a pleasure for me and doing it with my best friend only enhances the experience. I'm not that big of a spender but this is definitely not because I don't want things, trust me, I do. A lot. It is mostly due to the fact that I try to be wise and selective when I shop because I wanna make the best choices possible. There's nothing that bugs me more than having purchased an item I didn't end up enjoying. It's not so much the amount of money I spent on it but rather the frustration of not finding any good use for it and still feeling too sorry to let it go and admit it was a waste.

So to save you from future faux pas when shopping I will provide you with my holy grail pieces of advice that keep me from over-spending and cramming my closet with unnecessary, pointless items.
