Light Summer Colours | What I Wore


Top: New Look  |  Pants: Stradivarius  |  Bag: George at ASDA  |  Shoes: H&M  |  Cuff bracelet: H&M

For today's outfit, I picked a few light colours, going for a more pastel-type of outfit. I wore this the other day, just running some errands. I went for a pair of mint skinny jeans, which I really love wearing, and I feel like these are a good change from the regular jeans that we all wear. They give a different vibe to the entire outfit. I paired those with this white blouse that I have from New Look. My favourite part about it is the bottom, that crochet detail. I think it looks really lovely and boho-inspired. To add some more colour to the outfit, I wore my H&M floral ballet flats, which are some of my favourite pairs at the moment. Finally, for accessories, I picked my H&M cuff bracelet that I've been wearing a lot, and my small black purse, which goes with pretty much everything. I think, actually, that a beige bag would have been perfect for this look, but I don't own one at the moment - reminder to myself that I should get one! - like I need an excuse to go shopping, haha! :) . 


That's about it for this outfit of the day! I hope you enjoyed this post!

My Top 3 Drugstore Concealers


Hi, everybody! Welcome back to another beauty post. I am going to share with you today my top 3 drugstore concealers, which was actually a requested topic from one of you. By the way, if you have any specific blog posts that you would like me to write, then let me know in the comments below. I picked three different types of concealers, that have slightly different effects, because I like having each one of these in my collection for different purposes. 


I will start with my all time favourite so far, the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer. This is a very affordable one, which I actually need to repurchase, because it is almost running out. It has a really nice coverage, I would say, it lasts pretty well, especially if you set it with powder. I like using this under the eyes, I feel like it does a really good job at covering under-eye circles, it's a very lovely formula, and it's really easy to apply - since it comes with one of those lipgloss-like applicators.

Second place is held by the Avon Luxe Illuminating concealer. I have mentioned this on my blog several times in the past months, but I can't help it - it's so good. I looove applying this to highlight under the eyes, and I feel like if you're going for a really good contouring job (like a Kim Kardashian type of look), this is the perfect concealer to go for. It does last really well and it has a very lovely, luxurious looking packaging. I think they were going for something similar to the famous YSL highlighter. Now, since I haven't tried the YSL one, I can't really do a comparison, but I think you should definitely give the Avon one a go (plus it's much more afforable).

Thirdly, I really like the Essence Match 2 Cover concealer. This comes with two shades in the palette, which is perfect for mixing it up and adjusting the shade according to your own colouring. I really love this for covering spots, pimples, anything  like that. It's got a thicker, cream consistency, and it's got really good coverage. I use some powder on top to make it last really well. Also, part of the Essence products charm is the fact that they are insanely budget-friendly, so if you're looking for a really good and inexpensive concealer, this is the one to pick.


I hope you enjoyed this post! What is your favourite concealer?

Monochrome Aztec Outfit | What I Wore


Top: H&M  |  Skirt: New Yorker  |  Sandals: Deichmann  |  Bracelets: H&M  |  Bag: George at ASDA

Welcome to another What I Wore Wednesday! Hope your week is going well so far! I am actually a bit stressed out, because I've got an exam tomorrow, but hopefully it will go alright. This outfit is one that I wore this past weekend. I actually didn't do much this weekend except studying and watching the new series of Orange Is The New Black (woohoo - so excited that it finally came out!!!). Do you watch the series? I honestly don't know why I find it so interesting, but it's really addictive and I'm trying hard not to go through the entire season too quickly- haha!

Moving on to the actual outfit, I wore this on a little shopping spree. I got the aztec print skirt last year from New Yorker and I feel like it goes really well with  otherwise simple or plain items, so I decided to go for a monochrome look. I do feel like summer requires lots of colour in your wardrobe, but I also really like to go for monochrome from time to time.


I hope you enjoyed this post!
