Current favourites August

The idea for this post came to me quite some time ago as I did one before (available here). I love watching my favourite bloggers uploading videos discussing fashion and beauty choices of the month and their personal recommendations. It helps me to discover and select products and items I would like to try to purchase for myself.

I thought it will be good to share my personal favourites list and see if I can be of any help to anybody ?

Fashion:

I simply cannot get enough of these shoes (first shown here). They are the perfect flat sandal and as I love them so much, I am now considering adding different colour of the same shoes into my collection.

They are not cheap but the quality matches the price and in my opinion they add that special something into every outfit.

When I bought this shirt, I had no idea how much I would love it. It is of a beautiful quality, fits perfectly and it is so versatile that adding different elements of the outfit cannot be easier. It is now a true staple in my closet and one of the few items I could not be without !!

Something new for me as I was always more conservative when adding injection of colour. But now I love my red lip, it gives a bust of confidence and feels very natural.

I think that adding collar or lipstick it is the best way to experiment with colour without pushing the boundaries too hard… Any recommendations for a new red lipstick for me to try ? My favourite one will be a surprice for some of you but it is this one here !!

Beauty:

If you follow my blog for a while you may know that I am a huge fan of Diptyque fragrances. I have already spoken about another scent before (here) and now I have added this one to my list of must haves. It is so unusual, yet interesting without being overwhelming and at your face.

One of my essentials that I put on most days. It is natural and delicate enough for every day use and will never leave your lips dry and uncomfortable. The colour is a perfect match for me and I love the smell, packaging and presentation.

Culture:

It was not a type of movie I would think I am going to enjoy but I did. Charlize Theron is spectacular and the movie is packed with unexpected twists and surprises. It is maybe on a violent side and it made me uncomfortable at times but all in all so worth seeing. Plus the outfits selection is to die for…

  • Chopin music

Classic music is something that I love and always have, especially in the evening. It helps me to relax and rest properly. Chopin is not for everyone but is something that I have been enjoying and listening to most days in the last few weeks.

What have you been enjoying lately ?

Is there anything else I should try ?

Thank you very much for your visit and I hope to see you all very soon !!

Love,

What I wore Sunday… metallic obsession

I have been desperately looking for a metallic, pleated skirt in dirty silver colour. As I could not find anything exactly to my taste on a reasonable budget and as I was not prepared to spend my holiday allowance on this skirt I had to make some compromises. When I saw this one in the beautiful, deep green colour I knew this is the one… I have not seen anything like this before and I hope to make a staple in my wardrobe !

I have pair this skirt with my current favourite denim skirt and my must have flats and handbag. The combination maybe something I have not tried before but I felt really good wearing it and I think it works.

We have found this warehouses on the outskirts of Sheffield. I have discovered them some time ago when trying to find my way home and I truly loved this setting.

So without further delay that is what I wore Sunday !

May

Months are flying and without even realising we are approaching summer time… I love all seasons but summer has something very special about is. That more relaxed vibe, less layers and sun kiss skin. Today I want to share with you what I have been up to last month and maybe show you some pictures I have not featured on this blog before.

May has been a very busy month for me work wise and I had not had a chance to travel much. Few day trips that is all what we had time for… Maybe June will be more generous when it comes to free time ?

My favourite breakfast of last month… poached egg, avocado and pear on pumpernickel bread !! I have discover new place for breakfast near our house and I have every intention to test it more over coming months !!

Best purchase I have made last month… this denim shirt will be staying with me for a very long time. I have about ten different ideas of what to wear to with so I have to apologise in advance for repeating it countless amount of times xx

That is it for last month in pictures… I hope you have enjoy reading this post and please let me know what you have been up to ?

As usual I hope to see you all soon !!
