It's time for a new post where I show you some of my favs from different websites and different occasions! Today is all about 2017 prom dresses cause of course prom season is around the corner and we're looking for that dress that we have been imagining since when we were kids but that e can't fine anywhere.. well have a look on 27dress.com cause honestly I found so many beautiful dresses that not only reflected my inner idea about a dress but that gave me new ideas and made my fall in love at each click.
There's something for every colour, every shape, length and price range.. to give you an idea of what you can find on 27dress here's some pictures of my favourites :)

My top 4 makeup products

Hi! I haven't done this kind of post in a while.. but since it's one of the things I love to read on other blogs I might as well try and put more of this kind of content on my blog as well :)
By now you should all be aware of how much I love colours, bright combinations and how hard it is for me to "tone it down" so yeah.. don't get too much surprised of my top 4 favourites right now!





Obsessed with these right now! The NYX vivid brights eyeliners. They're so pigmented and bright and so cheap as well! I got them in orange and red but there are many cool colours I wanna try.. Definitely needed to be in my top selection!






This is a long time love.. i you are into liquid lipsticks LIME CRIME VELVETINES have just no competitors.. no matter ho many liquid lipsticks I try I will always prefer the formula of velvetines.. The colours here are Shroom ( the nude brownish one) and Pumpkin Pie (the dark red one) from the first collection.. they've been putting out loads of new colours, shades and finishes lately.. just a shame that the only way to get them in Italy is buying them from their website and paying almost the price of the lipstick for shipping..






This is 100% that one thing I couldn't live without.. it's common knowledge that without good tools no make up can come out perfect.. and this set of brushes from SAMMYDRESS are just perfect.. they come in the cutest little container and they're are SO MANY.. literally every brush you might need is there.. and guess what.. all of the them for around 6$.. 




 Last but not least an other long time favourite from  CHANEL.. I'm rarely into mineral foundations cause for "young skins" is suggested to use more hydrating products since at this age stage 90% of girls have oily or mixed skin.. which actually applies to me.. but this one is not dry at all.. I wouldn't use it everyday cause I genuinely prefer to hydrate my skin when I can but there are days when you just wanna put on something fast and go.. and this is just perfect..

Pink and Black






shop here



Here's chapter 2 of my colour-based selection from uk.millybridal.org. I've already talked about this brand in my last post so I gotta say there's not much to add.. It's basically a website that literally solves your problems if your looking for a wedding dress, a ceremony elegant garment, a prom dress and so on. My favourite style looking for a elegant dress is "arabian princess"..you know..embroidered,shiny, rich looking and sexy. I found SO MANY clothes in this category! I definitely  could not show you all but I did my best to try and pick some gems. 
As you may have noticed the selection is all based on colours, (both in here and in the prevoius post) cause for each piece there are soo many colour variations that I could not avoid speaking about it.
What about the satisfaction of having a dress in a certain colour in your mind and getting it in that exact shade without having to adapt?! YES.

Blue and Red






Here's my first chapter of my new "series of wishlist" based on colours! I will basically pick a couple colours from a certain website for each chapter and show you the clothes I would buy from the category :D
The website of the day is uk.millybridal.org which is basically where you can find whatever you need for a celebration. From prom dresses to wedding dresses, to just elegant and sophisticated dresses for a special event. The thing I like the most is that for every model you will most likely find more than two colour variations which is great.. cause often we have a certain colour in mind for a garment and even if we like the model we have to adapt to some other shade cause they don't have it in "our colour". This is where I got the idea of doing a wishlist by colour as well.. since for each of them there were various options!

The first wishlist of 2017


A new year, a new wishlist from StyleWe. This time is all about short dresses with a pinch of holiday spirit and wintery taste. For this 2017 I decided I wanna look for some specific quality pieces instead of a bunch of clothes of which I would get tired after a week. One thing I've been looking for quite a while is a silk kimono that I finally found on stylewe in many variations. I once bought a silk kimono for a pound at a flea market and I felt in love with the idea of "silk night and home wear" and I've been looking for new pieces since then. I found some cool new pieces I wanna add to my collection also on just fashion now, give it a go if you're planning for a full on wardrobe restyling. And just in case you were wandering the wide range of stuff from StyleWe is not only limited to clothes, shoes and accessories but also home wear and make up ..where you can find the best drugstore bb cream, check it!

Christmas wishlist from Stylewe




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
