Office Wear Outfit | What I Wore


Top: Zara  |  Skirt: H&M  |  Sandals: H&M  |  Necklace: Meli Melo  |  Bag: George at ASDA


You might recognize this top from my last outfit post...that's because I've been wearing it a lot ever since I got it. I just love the way it looks, I think the peplum detailing is very flattering and I adore the dusty pink colour. I have been wearing a lot the top with that statement necklace - in different combinations, for example: with this grey skirt, with a black pair of jeans (like the previous outfit post), with a pair of white pants...it just looks great in various combos.
I got this pencil skirt from H&M this spring and it's really comfortable to wear, it's not at all restricting when you walk. The sandals are not really too high, so I can wear them without getting tired very quickly - I wore them to events (like weddings), but also just whilst running errands, when I want to look a bit more elegant. It's definitely one of my favourite office-wear outfits.

Patent Finish & Dusty Pink | What I Wore


Top: Zara | Jacket: Zara | Trousers: H&M | Shoes: Zara | Earrings: Meli Melo | Watch: New Look

Last week I was strolling to a local mall and happened to step into Zara. They are currently having their summer sales going on and let me tell you - they are extremely dangerous - haha! I went in two times since to buy items that were on my list, but I am restricting myself from going in anymore because I will end up getting everything!!! I absolutely love the things that I've got and I'm excited to share them with you. If you're interested in anything, I'm pretty sure you can still find all the items in their stores. I will probably do a haul of all the things I got from the sales on my Youtube channel, so follow me there if you'd like to see that.
For this outfit, I obviously went with a dusty pink and black combination. Dusty pink is slowly becoming one of my favourite colours. It's so easy to pair with anything, it gives a feminine vibe and it just looks really pretty. The top has a frilled bottom and it looks so lovely on, I have already worn it a few times since I got it. I'm not sure if you tell from the pictures, but it's a sort of leather material and I just really love how it looks basically. And probably my favourite purchase from Zara are the patent finish flat shoes - they are to die for, if you ask me. I am sure I'll wear them a lot. I have yet to see such a lovely pair of flats - they're perfect for looking a bit more put together when you don't feel like wearing heels. And finally, I got the dusty pink bomber jacket from Zara because I wanted to have a thin jacket that I could throw on for those chilly summer evenings. My fiance also got a similar bomber jacket from Zara, except it's in a dark navy colour - and I think it looks cute when we both wear them (cheesy much?! haha!).

Summer Skincare Additions | Dove DermaSpa



I recently found in stores this new range from Dove, called DermaSpa, and immediately bought these two products. I looked at the other ones from the range as well, but these two were the ones that I felt like I needed/wanted the most. Now, I don't think these are actually completely new products, they probably just got new packaging (at least for the tanning lotion). I tried them for a few months now and thought I could give you a little review, in case you are contemplating getting them and are not sure if they're any good. I generally think Dove products are good ones, and so is the case with these particular items. 

DermaSpa Summer Revived Tanning Lotion: I'm going to start by saying - this is one of the best tanning lotions that I have ever tried. I believe this is supposed to be a new formula of the Dove Summer Glow tanning lotion and that it should have a nicer scent than the old one. I'm gonna be honest, I don't really think that's true. It does have a nicer scent when you first apply it, but after a couple of hours it still smells like any other tanning lotion. I don't really mind it so much, but I know some people do. With that being said, I do really love the results that it gives and, so far, I haven't had any streaky applications. I would definitely recommend this if you're on the market for a new tanning lotion. 

DermaSpa Goodness Body Lotion: This is a really nice lotion and I especially love using it after tanning or after sitting in the sun a bit. It doesn't really have sparkle or glitter in it (thankfully), but it does somehow give you a nice glow. It looks especially lovely once you get a bit of a tan going on. I like to apply this at nighttime and sometimes also in the morning, after I shower. The scent is really lovely, as is usually the case with Dove products. It's not a sticky formula at all, so all in all I have no complaints about this lotion. Plus, it looks really lovely on my vanity table - haha! :)

Have any of you tried these products? Let me know how you liked them!
