Christmas wishlist from Stylewe



here








For Christmas we're al looking for glitters, shine and statement pieces.. so here's my Christmas wishlist from StyleWe, and it's not really a wishlist of what I'd like to get for Christmas but more of a list of things I'd love to have (and wear) during the holiday season! 
I tried to pick garments that can be dressed up or down based on the occasion of use, keeping it all in the classic tones of Christmas..which are of course red,gold,silver and black. I though of these handbags as well cause they can actually go with each of this outfits.. 
I am strictly convinced that we all already have what we're looking for in our wardrobe but we do not see it.. cause sometimes pairing pieces differently, mix patterns, colours and shapes can transform completely the face of a piece..and of course if we concede ourselves more combinations the result will only be more (and different) outfits to wear! 
By the way what do you start from when you pick your clothes for the days? 
I know it's not the most common thing but I usually start from the coat I wanna wear.. at least now that is freezing cold.. or from the accessories.. I'm so into huge earrings and they quite make the outfit    with a toned down kinda look and when I really want to wear a certain lip colour or particular eyes I start from it and develop the outfit around that!

Mermaid blanket and handcrafted vegan makeup





As much as my vernal print on the wall can make you think different it is FREEZING in Milan and even with the heating on a warm blanket is always welcomed. I've been loving this one from DRESSLILY lately. It matches my room's colour scheme and it makes me feel a child again to be in a knitted marmaid tail. An other thing I've been liking A LOT lately is natural and bio makeup products. I feel we wear so much shit sometimes without even realizing it behing big names..and it's just so nice to find handcrafted, natural, vegan and safe products that work the same and you actually know what's in there. The first product I wanna talk you about is a lip stain (pictures below for each item). It's from SHAKESPEARE'S BATHTUB (like all the products I'm gonna introduce you today) and it's basically a very smooth muave coloured stain that you can build up to get the colour intensity you want. The scent of cherry orchard is not strong but it's there and a thing I liked is that the first layers is actually so light that it just gives your lips a tiny darker shade but you would most likely think it's just naked lips (which is the look I went for in the pictures) and adding layers the colour intensifies till a full muave. 
The second product I'm gonna talk you about is a luminizer.. that you can find HERE, I gotta be honest when I first saw it so compact I thought It would have been too tricky to spread and the strong smell was a bit of a put off as well but I ended up loving it! It was a pure revelation. The heat of the fingers soften the shea butter so it's not tricky to spread at all. The luminizer itself is blinding! I tried to show it in the pictures but it's never easy to get the right light..especially when you are home alone trying to take pictures of yourself ahah!
The third product I really liked is the M' LADY PLUMPING BALM which is a peppermit flavoured plumping lip balm (as the name suggests), it is highly moisturizing and it improves lip appearance and fullness over time thankes to the concentration of Volulip serum. If you are annoyed by that light pinch characteristic of pumping lip balms and lipstick you won't probably like this. but at least by it you know it's working!
The fourth and last thing is a LOTION. The smell of it is everything! It is milky and soft and it reminds me so much of something of my childhood I can't really remember but it warms me everytime! It is highly hydrating thanks to Canadian maple syrup and a rich selection of other ingredients such as coconut oil.. funny story.. the name of the lotion is But soft! And it actually comes from a line in Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet "But soft! What light through yonder window break?"
Hope you liked that items as much as I did it.. and if you are willing to try something yourself use the code GOWEST for 25% off ANY ORDER AMOUNT. The coupon never expires and can be used once per person.. and now that christmas is coming what better present than something original and can help grow a little independent brand?!
The pocket mirror I used for the pictures is a beautiful led mirror (yes the one that shows all of your spots, black head and imperfections) from SAMMYDRESS

BAGS WISHLIST FROM STYLEWE

here




Today's wishlist is all about bags! I don't think I've actually done a selection of bags I'd love to have on this blog before, and I actually am not really a bag person anyway. I mean.. I love a good bag and I actually stick to it till it's ripped and unusable anymore.. and since I'm right now in the situation of a much needed upgrade I've been in the haunt for a while. I could really use some fashion tips right.. especially on shapes, neutral colours and in general combination that can go with everything! I never really considered a backpack as a daily bag but I've selected a few cause I'd like to give it a try.. would you think? What's your ideal everyday-bag? By the way on this website there's a GREAT range of stuff.. and only bags.. you can find from the fanciest sweet 16 dresses to the most casual t-shirt.. give it a try! And if you're up for extra inspiration check their facebook as well :)

Bubblegum pink


here

here

Pink is such a calming colour. Especially in this pastel (but bright) kinda shade. Weather you are looking for a cheap prom dress or just for a fancy dress for a party or a wedding. I do really think this is one of those colours with which you can't go wrong for any occasion.. It's not too flamboyant yet not anonymous, girly and classy and of course it depends on the details and the accessories you decide to pair it with based on the case of occasion. Most of them because of the shape and the materials are thought for a "more elegant event". But trow a pair of flat sandals on, wavy hair and a soft make up and you're perfect for a stylish night at the beach. Just add a pair of heels some bold lips and some statement jewels and you'll be the centre of attention at any kind of party. This is selection is from Dressfashion from which I decided to take some bits in one my favourite colours to wear but of course there's such a wider selection! Why don't you go and have a look? :)

November wishlist from stylewe



here





here









I mention my love for the colour orange almost in every post. I've already selected some orange pieces for a wishlist.. but it was a while ago and now I got some cool pieces in mind from stylewe. It's so overwhelming and quite creepy at the same time how much I can OBSESSED with a single colour!.. It's not even an usual colour to like.. how could you dislike something in orange?!
I usually got an orange coat and everybody says I look like a fireman, a carachter from orange is the new black or just a person with an annoiningly bright coat. I saw something VERY nice on this website as well (in terms of coats, I do understand that orange might be too much for some of you), have a look if you're looking to shop a long down coat. In case you would like to know more about the brand or just to be always updated with the latest trends and arrivals check their Pinterest feed and of course their instagram

That one dress in which you would feel like a princess before the wedding

here








here










here


Feeling beautiful, good, confident etc is something you can get everyday from your daily life. But feeling like a princess, a proper beauty queen in a wide skirt made of fluff and tulle, shiny reflections and your hair curled and tied up with roses is something you can only dream for the day of your life when you are the absolute protagonist.. which is not the wedding! (cause in that case you actually need to share the crown) yeah I'm speaking about first communions and first communion dresses. Being young doesn't mean not caring about what we are wearing or not having a personality in terms of taste. I still remember my 1st communion dress in its ivory/cream colour and roses embroideries and I do remember how good I felt in it. As a FD student I know the importance of "feeling what we are wearing" and I do really think that my first connection understanding what it meant to feel good thanks to what I was wearing comes from that day.

FASHIONMIA WISHLIST


here








I know my last wishlist was about sunnies..but we can't pretend summer lasts forever.. so here's a selection of Fashion outwear and Trench coats I would definitely enjoy wearing now that it's getting chillier. I do never find the perfect coat.. length, colour, material.. I'm so fussy on coats and to find websites with so many cheap trench coats and women's outerwear is always a joy. I used to have a red coat that I loved..little red riding hood kinda vibe to let you get a visionary idea of it.. but when I moved out I left it to my sister and now I desperately want a new one. Outwear for women is always a delicate topic, cause when you wear a coat in winter it becomes your outfit.. since people won't really see what you're wearing underneath.. and of course we can't have as many coats as t-shirts to always wear a different one that's why we need to find the perfect one to always be stylish and confident. I do really like the green one from the first pic.. I think it's such an unusual colour and it would look cool with almost everything.. mm.. next purchase?

What I wore on Halloween


I know it's not a proper proper Halloween costume..especially for you American over there..who are used to big costumes and celebrations.. but we probably starting considering it a proper thing no more than 6/7 years ago.. give us time to get use to it! I actually didn't plan to get dressed up at all neither so I had nothing in mind.. but last minute my friends and I decided to go clubbing so I just did my makeup and based on that I created a character that I would define as a "common citizen of candyland" ahahah does it make sense to you? By the way these have been in my top three earrings for ages now (they're from Eat Da Rich in case you were wandering) and I paired them with my new pom pom hairband from momosagi, poured some stars and glitters on my cheek, bright lips and that was it. Nothing extreme nor hard to do but I kinda like the final result :)

How to brew the perfect tea


First of all sorry about the artificial lightning.. is something I don't like much in the pictures but this is the most spontaneous of the posts. Just me enjoying my tea and having a chat with you about my tips in brewing tea and sharing with you some of my favourites teas.
I've always been the kinda lazy person who get scared if tea isn't in a teabag all ready to go, but lately I tried this tea from LunaTeaCompany and I finally got the difference. First of all since you're dosing it yourself you can decide how strong to take it, how much water you want and calibrate the amount of tea based on that and of course deciding yourself exactly how you want it it will be so much better. An other thing to consider is that each tea has different brewing times.. so it might slightly more or less to actually blend perfectly.. of course it depends also on how hot the water is and how much it is. By the way I got all the information from here if you wanna know more. So the two teas I've been addicted to lately are " citrus dream" and "spice junkie" (read the ingredients below) and don't be tricked by the fact that they seemed full.. I managed to finish it in a ridiculous short time ahaha.
Plus this infuser is too cute and just so in line with the mystical and magical look of this teas!
And the mug from mugforyourhome just describes itself (and me) too well to actually need more words :)
