Color Blocks

#teenvogue // wearing H&M skirt and shoes, COS jumper, Vintage scarf, GERARD DAREL coat
Hey y'all
How did we come to half November this fast ? Where did my time go ? It feels sort of unreal to be honest. As you might have seen I had to put my blog and social media life aside for a couple weeks as work was getting very overwhelming. I barely had the time to touch my computer or switch on my tv. It's fine because I love what I'm studying but the more I got into it the more I forgot about my blog and other medias. Oh well, I take it as good thing considering the fact that for once I actually am enjoying my studies haha! 
Lately, I have been living and glued in this fitted grey skirt. I never thought it would have gotten so many compliments. It's very minimalistic in a way. The cut, material and discreet pocket details are effortlessly cool looking. I wear it with pretty much everything and I can see it becoming a definite wardrobe essential. 
As today was quite gloomy I wanted to opt for something a little colorful. I'm obviously all about it. This colorblock cropped jumper had me going all sorts of ecstatic when I saw it on a rack at Cos in London last month. What do you guys think about this look ?

CaseApp Skin/Case GIVEAWAY

 Hey y'all
TGIF, I hope you all had a fabulous week. Mine was pretty hectic but oh well, it's the weekend! I recently got in touch with the lovely Amity working at CaseApp, a website made for customizable computer and phone cases. They kindly asked me if I wanted to test out their product. Of course being the mega geek and case hoarder that I am, I said yes. I had the opportunity to pick out which design/image I wanted for my laptop. I really like this conceptual graphic image. I thought it would work really nicely with the design of a MacBook! What do you guys think?

Of course I agreed to do a giveaway for you guys and let you design a fancy personalised case/skin. Holiday season is right around the corner and I think it could also make a great gift for a special someone. It's something quite personal and original I think.

Please read instructions in box down below to enter contest

The giveaway will run for a week and will be ending Saturday 15th at Midnight. I will personally be contacting you and feeding you the discount code by email.

Good Luck y'all!

Dim The Lights

#teenvogue // wearing ZARA skirt (here), H&M coat (here) and turtleneck, MINELLI boots
Autumn leaves and dimmed lights, Hello November!
Two months to go until this year is over, time flies. I actually can't believe I took these pictures two weeks ago already. I miss London so much especially these evening Autumn walks around parks.  Hyde Park is so beautiful around this time of the year. How stunning is this lighting ? 
This is probably one of my most casual look but to be honest it was all about keeping warm. I feel like turtlenecks are becoming a wardrobe staple to me. I love how you can choose from a variety of cuts and materials. This dusty blue one is just what I was looking for. A slight cropped cut and an oversized fit that makes you feel super cozy and warm!
I hope you guys spent an awesome and spooky Halloween, have a lovely week, until next time, X

October Favorites

Thought I'd share with you a couple of products and items I've been loving this past month. Let's start with accessories shall we? I've been drawn to a lot of geometrics and graphic items for as long as I can remember. I must say I'm really happy with the couple items I found at &Other Stories and Cos while I was in London. I'm always up for a pop of color and this deep green scarf (&OtherStories) had me all sorts of exited. It's 100%silk which makes it extremely soft. I couldn't leave this wooden/silver bangle (Cos) laying on it's own. I knew it would make a great statement piece and a fun accessory to play around with. Same goes to these dainty earrings (H&M). I'm normally not so keen on dangly earpieces but these one seemed very lightweight and chic. I'm still obsessing about them. Almost looks like something Ginette NY would design.
Speaking of chic, here's a color you want to be looking out for. Rosetto (19) by Rimmel is a color I've been wearing all month long. I would describe it as quite a dusty pink shade. I like that it's fairly pigmented which allows it to stay on your lips for a good amount of time. That's always a plus, am I right ladies ?!
As for skincare, my skin has been acting quite bipolar at me for some reason this beginning of October. Maybe it had to do with the fact that I was dealing with a lot of mixed and various emotions at some point (see last article). Nonetheless I managed to get my hands on this miraculous mask by Ducray. It's paraben-free for oily or combination skin. It actually absorbs, exfoliates and cleanses your face without damaging or irritating your skin. 
To go allong with that little tube of gold, I've been using the Nuxe Micellar cleansing water. If only you could smell the fresh rose scent of it. 
Dry skin and deep moisturising season just knocked on our front doors. Yes, it's that time again when you worry about dry patches and crocodile skin. Ugh it's probably the one thing I hate about colder months. My skin getting dryer and dryer and having to moisturising it to the fullest in order to look somewhere between alert and alive. Despite the fact that I have to deal with dry patches, I think I found the ultime solving product. This Nuxe multi-usage dry oil is probably my new best friend. I literally use it everywhere I think might be needing that extra touch of love. 
What have been your favorites this past month ? x

Monthly Music Favorites | October

Happy Halloween youngsters! 
I'm back with some brand new tracks for the month of October. I like to describe this playlist as eclectic as I had a lot of mixed emotions this past month. Went from vulnerable to sad to happy to surprised to excited to a lot of different phases. I think it's very much translated in my music choice this past month. I find it fascinating how much music actually reflects how you're feeling and how we tend to associate a track to an emmotion. Although I've been having to keep calm and control my disturbed mind, it's been great. Today is Halloween, I'm spending it with my three best friends as per usual. We're heading to dinner this evening and drinks afterwards. Who knows we might get bitten by vampires...
