Trendy Witch 



These last days have been terrifying and it has nothing to do with Halloween so I’m definitely not in the mood to celebrate anything but since before all this madness began I had found the perfect nailpolish to match every costume and mood. I’m talking about this dark blue with a purple hint, a glamorous alternative to the classic black, with a beautiful gelly finish. ‘Cause you can be scary and trendy at the same time! 

Nailpolish: Rimmel “Super Gel” in Blueberry Fields. 



Gli ultimi giorni sono stati terrificanti, per motivi che con Halloween non c’entrano affatto, quindi al momento non ho più alcuna voglia di festeggiare, ma prima che la vera paura dilagasse avevo trovato uno smalto stupendo, perfetto per ogni costume, travestimento e stile. Parlo di un blu scuro, intenso, che vira leggermente al viola, con un finish ultra brillante: una splendida alternativa al classico nero ed una tonalità sicuramente molto di moda questo autunno/inverno. Perché va bene essere spaventose, ma senza rinunciare ad un tocco trendy!

After some crazy months right now I really need some time to relax and rest. The last sunny days have been perfect to enjoy this spare time and the warmer weather. Yesterday I took a long afternoon walk in a beautiful park near home in a comfy, casual outfit.

I’ve always loved striped tee and that’s why I own more than one and I’m more than glad that they’re back as a trend of this new season.
I paired it with a simple pair of jeans in light blue and grey suede shoes.
I also brought a blue sweater and a scarf but it was such a lovely day that I really didn’t need them both!

Tee and jeans: Zara

Dopo alcuni mesi folli in questo momento ho davvero bisogno di prendermi una pausa per riposare e ricaricare le batterie. Le splendide giornate assolate delle ultime settimane sono state delle perfette alleate per il relax ed il tempo libero. Ieri, ad esempio, ne ho approfittato per fare una lunga passeggiata in un parco vicino casa, tra bambini in bicicletta e adulti che oziava i beatamente al sole. Per l’occasione ho scelto un outfit casual e comodo.

Le magliette a righe mi sono sempre piaciute, per questo sono felice che siano uno dei trend per la nuova stagione e non ho esitato ad indossarne una al primo caldo. L’ho abbinata ad un paio di jeans skinny, blu chiaro, e scarpe scamosciate grigie.
Ho portato con me anche un maglione blu ed una sciarpa di cotone dello stesso colore, ma con una giornata tanto bella non ne ho avuto bisogno!

Prom Queen

Spring has finally sprung and with the warmer sun and the colorful, scenty flowers it has also come that time of the year to celebrate all the work and efforts made during a long winter. It’s time to leave all the coats, scarves, gloves and oversized sweaters for some pretty puffy skirts, elegant lace, shiny beads and romantic chiffon. It’s time to dare and dream, to dance all night long, to share pictures and unforgettable moments with friends. It’s prom time!

Like I said before in Italy we don’t have anything similar to prom but I’ve always dreamed to take part in one and with the whole Cinderella fever lately it got even worse! I’d love to go shopping for the perfect dress, to try on many different styles, to choose the perfect shoes and purse and to match my outfit with the makeup and hair. I would probably enjoy all this prep part more than the prom itself! Probably because it would be great to linger over gorgeous, formal dresses like the ones I’ve found on one of my favourite sites, www.promtimes.co.uk. I’m sure you’ll find it really useful too with all the options about fabrics, colors, styles, lenghts.

I couldn’t resist so I made a search through their fabulous, dreamy dresses and I found out that I’d probably have some issues choosing just one dress but since I’m not going to any prom I can pick more than one dress with no trouble. Here are my favourites!

Long Dresses (here)

Romantic Look

I really like the shade of pink, the fabric and the delicate, embellished detail. I’d pair this romantic dress with some bold, sparkling shoes. I’d wear a natural makeup and I’d choose something similar to the bun in the pic for my hair.

Spring Shades

Spring Shades

Here’s another colour I really like: yellow! This pastel shade allows you to wear a bold colour without risking too much. Plus if you’re still tanned from the last spring break you’ll look great in this shade. Once again I’d pair this modern, original dress with sparkling shoes. I’d go for nude lips and cat eyes and I’d style my hair in a high braid.

Short Dresses (here)

Black Drama

Black Swan

Lace has always been and always will be my favourite. So here’s what I call a “classic”: black lace. I do love everything about this dress: the shape of the skirt that reminds me of a tutu, the black bow on the waist, the see-through effect on the shoulders, the open back. I think all these elements make it really elegant but wearable at the same time. I’d pair it with nude shoes, smokey eyes and natural lips. A messy, side bun would be my choice for the hairstyle.

Vintage Dress (here)

Haute Couture

Here’s another nude/black combo but this time in a long, vintage dress. The lace details on the see-through sleeves and skirt, the shape and lenght, the nude belt and inserts: everything in this sophisticated dress says haute couture. It’s what I love about it, the elegant, timeless attire combined with modern, young elements. I’d pair this dress, like the one before, with nude shoes, smokey eyes and natural lips. I would wear a beaded headband in the hair to complete the look.

Pink chiffon/black lace combo.. with a twist!

Another pink/black combo from the vintage department but this time in a short dress with a modern twist. The embellished black lace on the top and the original shape and lenght of the skirt are my favourite elements in this dress that combines perfectly classic and modern features for a girly, fresh result. I’d pair the dress with beaded or black lace shoes and bubblegum pink lips. A high bun would be perfect to complete the outfit.

Red Dresses (here)

PD0919-0

            Queen of Hearts

A beautiful red dress with a surprise on the back. I’d wear it with some daring shoes, probably in gold, big earrings and hair up to show the wonderful see-through lace on the back. An elegant gown with a feminine hint for a modern queen of hearts.. and possibly prom queen!

Blue Dresses (here)

lf3242_10__1

        Goddess of the Seas

This dress really impressed me at first glance. What I like the most is its original top with the blue gems and the whole embroidery. It makes me think of the deep waters of the ocean with its lively world, vivid colors and dancing waves. That’s why I would pair it with a fishtail braid, silver shoes and glittery eyes.

I hope you’ll enjoy the search for the perfect dress as much as the prom itself and I’m pretty sure www.promtimes.co.uk will be a part of your unforgettable success. Because if there can be only one prom Queen with these wonderful dresses every girl can be a fashion Queen!

Dresses Wonderland!

Lately I’ve been searching a lot for some elegant dresses. It’s that time of the year full of festive parties with co-workers, friends and relatives and I’m more than glad to take the chance to wear fancy, sparkling outfits. 

Just like every month and season lace is still my favourite both for sophisticated and relaxed occasions. I love keeping it classy and classic with black lace but on these days I also like daring with colours and wearing it in other shades, especially red and green of course! Chiffon is also a good choice for me especially in puffy, short skirts and fancy dresses. 

I did many researches in stores, obviously, and even more on the internet and that’s where I found an interesting, useful, pretty site: http://www.promtimes.co.uk.There are so many options, styles, colours and fabrics that you just can’t leave it without finding exactly what you were looking for. And even more. There are so many choices for different occasions and body shapes and the most of the items are highly discounted.

In this huge offer I did a little selection and I’d like to share it with you all.

Let’s start with something classic on this time of the year: red dresses! (here)

Starry Night

Here’s what I did on a boring, cold weekend. Well, it was one of the many things I did but probably the most beautiful.

The idea was to recreate a dark blue sky full of stars on my nails. I used a blue nailpolish as a base, a silver one for a some magic sparkling starry light and two glittered nailpolishes to complete the galaxy. I also used some white and silver dots in different sizes to complete this shining mani.

I didn’t do it on purpose but the result is also going in the Christmas direction I can’t wait to take.

So let’s start this new week with a new mani… And a new mood!

All nailpolishes are from OPI.
Blue: Dating a Royal
Silver: Haven’t the Foggiest
Glitters: In True Stefani Fashion
Bigger Glitters: I Snow You Love Me
White: Alpine Snow

Ecco il risultato di un fine settimana noioso e freddo. Ovviamente ho fatto molto più di questo, ma penso che la nailart sia la cosa che mi é riuscita meglio. Se non consideriamo la meravigliosa torta foresta nera, ma questo non é un blog di cucina quindi… Mi limiterò a mostrarvi le mani!

L’idea era ricreare un cielo stellato, per ottenerlo ho utilizzato una base blu e ho aggiunto con una spugnetta un po’ d’argento per la polvere di stelle e alcuni glitter di diverse dimensioni per rendere l’effetto scintillante delle stelle. Infine ho fatto qualche pois qua e lá per completare la mia galassia.

Sinceramente non ci avevo pensato prima, ma trovo che sia una manicure particolarmente adatta anche alla stagione festiva che si avvicina.

Nuova nailart per una nuova settimana.. E magari un nuovo stato d’animo!

Tutti gli smalti sono di OPI.
Blu: Dating a Royal
Argento: Haven’t the Foggiest
Glitter: In True Stefani Fahion
Glitter più grandi: I Snow You Love Me
Bianco: Alpine Snow

A Beautiful Day!

20140726-205443-75283119.jpg

It was a beautiful Saturday spent at the beach with my friend Teresa. We enjoyed the sunny, hot weather and started our “tanning program”. And I finally got into the summer mood.

I wore my new bikini from Tezenis and paired it with my best vamp attitude.

Hope you all had a great saturday and wishing a wonderful sunday!

É stata una bella giornata passata in spiaggia con la mia amica Teresa (stai leggendo, vero??). Ci siamo godute la giornata calda ed assolata ed abbiamo ufficialmente iniziato il nostro programma intensivo di abbronzatura. E finalmente sono entrata nel clima estivo!

Ho indossato il mio nuovo bikini di Tezenis, in blu con paillettes fluo, e l’ho abbinato al mio miglior atteggiamento da vamp. Secondo me la miglior combinazione possibile!

Spero che abbiate avuto tutti un sabato bello come il mio e vi auguro una domenica addirittura migliore!

Pin Up Feeling

20140724-204122-74482561.jpg

Here’s what I wore to go to the beach today.
I’ve bought many skirts like these in the last months and even if I usually don’t like high waists I had to make an exception for them.
The one I wore today is probably my favourite with its tiny, pink flowers. I paired it with a plain cotton tank in green (my favourite shade on this summer).

When my mom saw me she said I looked like I pin up and even if I hadn’t thought about it I like the idea so much that I used it in the title.

I’m still getting into the real summer mood but girly, colorful outfits like these are really helping through these cloudy days!

Tank: Calliope
Skirt: Tally Weijl

Oggi finalmente le nuvole ci hanno dato una tregua (illusoria, ma meglio di niente!) ed io ne ho approfittato per godermi la spiaggia poco affollata.
La gonna che ho indossato é una di molte simili che ho comprato egli ultimi mesi. Normalmente non amo i capi a vita bassa, ma per queste gonne ho scelto di fare un’eccezione perché mi piacciono molto.
Quella che ho indossato oggi é probabilmente la mia preferita, con i suoi piccoli fiori rosa. L’ho abbinata ad una canottiera semplice di cotone nel mio verde preferito per questa stagione.

Mia mamma quando mi ha visto ha detto che sembravo una pin up ed anche se non ci avevo pensato affatto l’idea mi é piaciuta talmente tanto che l’ho usata per il titolo del post.

Non sono ancora entrata del tutto nel clima estivo, per qualche strano motivo, ma questi outfit pieni di colori e femminili mi stanno decisamente portando nella giusta direzione.

Canotta: Calliope
Gonna: Tally Weijl

Pretty Little Daisies… Again!

20140723-195553-71753208.jpg

These last days I’ve had plenty of spare time and I’ve spent it reading, watching tv series and doing my mani, of course!
This last one was inspired by the top I wore a couple of days ago. I only changed the base colour: instead of the traditional black I went for a dark blue. For the tiny daisies I choose a white with a sandy finish to give the whole mani a 3D effect.
It was really fast and easy to do and the result is a fancy, girly nailart perfect for this season.

As usual all the nailpolishes are from Pupa.

Blue: Lasting Color Gel in 122
White: Black & White in 016
Yellow: Lasting Color Matt in 303

Durante questi ultimi giorni ho avuto, dopo mesi frenetici, un po’ di tempo libero da dedicare a me stessa. L’ho impiegato soprattutto leggendo, guardando vecchi episodi di serie americane e facendo molte diverse manicure, ovvio!
Quest’ultima é stata ispirata dal top a margherite che ho indossato qualche giorno fa e che mi piace tanto. Ho soltanto sostituito il colore di base: invece del nero tradizionale ho optato per un blu scuro. Per realizzare le margheritine, invece, ho utilizzato uno smalto bianco ad effetto sabbiato per un effetto tridimensionale.
É stata semplice e veloce da realizzare, come sempre con i pois, ed il risultato é un’altra nailart divertente e femminile, tra l’altro perfetta per questa stagione.

Come sempre tutti gli smalti sono di Pupa.
