Finally it’s Saturday! This means I’ve got some time to write on the blog and show you what I wore/did on another busy week. In particular I want to share with you my makeup and style from yesterday.
I went for a retro glam look with an Audrey Hepburn inspired makeup and a bon ton bun.
On the eyes I used a black eyeliner to contrast the natural matte eyeshadow and plenty of mascara to complete the look and make the eyes look bigger.
On the lips I used a lip pencil and a lip balm in cherry pink to keep my lips hydrated and soft.
Finally I styles my rebel hair in an elegant but really wearable bun and I was ready to face the last day of a long week!

Eyeliner: Kiko Ultimate Pen Long Wear Eyeliner
Mascara: Pupa Vamp in 001
Lip Pencil: Kiko Ultra Glossy Lip Pencil in 612
Lip Balm: Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me

Finalmente sabato! Finalmente un po’ di tempo per fermarmi, dedicarmi a me e, soprattutto, aggiornare il blog con quello che ho indossato/fatto durante la settimana. Oggi, in particolare, vorrei condividere con voi il look di ieri.
Ho scelto uno stile retro glam, con un makeup ispirato ad Audrey Hepburn ed i capelli raccolti in uno chignon piuttosto classico.
Per gli occhi ho usato un eyeliner, pennarello, nero in contrasto con l’ombretto opaco naturale e moltissimo mascara sulle ciglia per allargare lo sguardo, ingrandendo gli occhi.
Sulle labbra ho scelto di abbinare una matita fucsia con un velo di burrocacao colorato, per mantenere le labbra morbide ed idratate senza rinunciare al colore.
Ho completato il look raccogliendo i miei capelli indisciplinati in un elegante, ma assolutamente portabile, chignon.
Un pizzico di meraviglia dal passato per affrontare l’ultimo giorno di un’altra settimana caotica!

Before I go to bed I want to show you the colorful blouse I wore yesterday on a warm day of spring.
I bought it, on sale, a couple of months ago and I really couldn’t wait more to wear it!
It’s really soft and comfy but also glamorous with its beautiful floral print. I paired it with plain black leggings and my beloved Superga in yellow.
Black and colors, clouds and sun, work and fun… A mix of all these elements in my outfit for an other busy monday.

P.S. I also posted a pic to share with you my makeup. A super natural look with a hint of green under my eyes.

Blouse: Sisley

Prima di andare a letto voglio mostrarvi la blusa colorata che ho indossato ieri, durante una calda giornata primaverile.
L’ho comprata, in saldo, un paio di mesi fa e non non vedevo davvero l’ora di indossarla.
É morbidissima, leggera e comoda, ma anche stilosa, con la sua bellissima stampa floreale. L’ho abbinata ad un paio di semplici leggings neri ed alle mie adorate Superga, stavolta in giallo.
Nero e colore, nuvole e sole, lavoro e svago.. Un mix di tutti questi elementi nel mio outfit per affrontare un altro lunedí pieno di impegni.

P.S. Ho postato anche una foto per mostrarvi il makeup di ieri. Un look estremamente naturale con un tocco di verde sotto gli occhi.

I spent this Sunday studying and taking care of myself and my loved ones so I’m showing you what I wore yesterday for a relaxed walk.
I choose my new floral tank from H&M and I paired it with my favourite blue jeans and my new Superga shoes. They’re from the capsule collection “The Blonde Salad for Superga” and I really love the way they combine the classic white sneaker with something girly and fancy like lace. I’m pretty sure they’ll become a must for me this summer so, once again, well done Chiara!

Hope you had a great weekend and I wish you all a wonderful week!

Tank: H&M
Cardigan and Jeans: Zara
Sneakers: Chiara Ferragni for Superga

Per me questa é stata una domenica di studio, tennis e tempo da dedicare a me ed alla mia famiglia. Non sono uscita di casa quindi vi mostro quello che ho indossato ieri, per una passeggiata rilassata tra le meraviglie del festival degli artisti di strada.
Ho scelto la nuova maglia a stampa floreale di H&M e l’ho abbinata ad i miei jeans preferiti ed alle mie nuove Superga. Le scarpe fanno parte della capsule collection di Chiara Ferragni “The Blonde Salad for Superga” ed adoro il modo in cui combinano la classica scarpa di tela bianca con un elemento estremamente femminile e delicato come il pizzo. Sono sicura che diventeranno un must per me questa estate quindi, ancora una volta, ottimo lavoro Chiara!

Spero che abbiate trascorso una bella domenica e vi auguro una meravigliosa settimana!

Super powers!

Everyone needs some extra power on mondays and I got mine from this new nailpolish by Maybelline: “Power Red”.
It’s a beautiful, classic red.
It looked fine after two coats but I decided to add another one to make it perfect.
I also changed a little bit the shape of my nails after years of squared nails.
‘Cause mondays are always good for changes!

Have a nice week everyone!

Il lunedí abbiamo bisogno tutti di qualche energia in più e per questo ho pensato che il mio nuovo smalto fosse perfetto per oggi. “Power Red”, di Maybelline, é un bel rosso classico dal finish brillante. Mi piaceva già dopo due passate, ma ho scelto di aggiungerne un’altra perché fosse perfetto.
Ho anche cambiato un po’ la forma delle mie unghie, arrotondandole leggermente, dopo tanti anni di forma squadrata.
Perché i lunedì sono sempre perfetti per iniziare qualcosa di nuovo!

Buona settimana a tutti!

I went green!

Aqua is one of my favourite colors for spring and I love wearing it also on my nails. It was pretty hard to find the perfect aqua because usually they’re too blue or too green but this time I’m really satisfied with the result. This is exactly the shade I was looking for with an incredibly beautiful gelly finish. I like it so much that I decided not to add anything except for a hint of yellow on the accent nail. I choose a nailpolish with a matte effect to contrast the glossy finish on the other nails.

A super easy, colorful mani in my favourite spring shades and finishes!

Both nailpolishes are from Pupa “Navy Chic” collection. Aqua is #060 and yellow is #001.

Il verde acqua é uno dei miei colori preferiti per la primavera e mi piace indossarlo anche sulle unghie. É stato piuttosto difficile trovare il verde acqua perfetto perché di solito sono troppo azzurri, ma stavolta sono molto soddisfatta del risultato. Questa, infatti, é esattamente la tonalitá che stavo cercando, con un meraviglioso finish glossato. Mi piace talmente tanto che ho deciso di non aggiungere altro, fatta eccezione per un tocco di giallo sull’anulare. In questo caso ho usato uno smalto con finish opaco, in contrasto con la brillantezza delle altre unghie.

Una manicure semplicissima e colorata, nei colori primaverili che preferisco!

Entrambi gli smalti sono della collezione “Navy Chic” di Pupa, nei numeri 060 (verde acqua) e 001 (giallo).

Casual Chic in the Cold

Here’s what I wore today on a cold, grey day.

The blouse is from Mango and I’m wearing it for the first time today. Its simply elegance makes it really versatile: super chic with classic trousers and high heels or casual with jeans and boots. Today I went for the casual style but I’m pretty sure I’ll try something different pretty soon.

I also added a red cardigan on it and completed the outfit with a chandelier earring in red and purple.

Blouse: Mango
Cardigan: H&M
Jeans: Zara
Earring: Pimkie

Ecco quello che ho indossato oggi, in una giornata grigia e stranamente fredda.

La blusa é di Mango ed oggi la indosso per la prima volta. La sua semplice eleganza la rende estremamente versatile: estremamente chic con un paio di pantaloni dal taglio classico e sandali alti o casual con jeans e stivali. In questo caso io ho scelto lo stile casual, ma sono sicura che non passerá molto prima di provare qualcosa di totalmente diverso.

Ho aggiunto anche un cardigan rosso fragola e completato l’outfit con un orecchino chandelier rosso e viola.

Prom Season!

Since the first time I saw one on some tv show I’ve loved proms so much. I feel like there’s something magical in the whole process of searching for the perfect dress, buying a new pair of fabulous shoes, choosing the right jewels and finding the best hairdo, makeup and nailpolish to complete the look. Everything about this event looks so exciting to me and I’m pretty envy about all those girls that right now are planning their own proms.

Sadly in Italy we don’t have such a beautiful tradition but this has never stopped me by dreaming of ball gowns, scented flowers and unforgettable nights. The more prom season gets closer the more I linger on sites who sell dreamy dresses. I spent hours on http://www.victoriasdress.co.uk/ between shiny beads, embroidered flowers, fluffy chiffon and sophisticated lace. If you’re lucky enough to be searching for your prom dress you should check it out: you can find short or long dresses, different silhouettes for different body shapes, various necklines, many colours and styles. Plus on these days they’re doing a special offer and most dresses are highly discounted.

I think that every prom plan should start with the search for the right dress and I’m sure this site will help you with its many different beautiful choices!

A girl should choose her own dress according to her personal style and her body shape. Every girl knows her body features and qualities and should emphasize what she likes the most about herself. Dresses can hide imperfections pretty good just focusing the attention on somewhere else. So if you prefer your top half instead of your bottom half you should choose a dress with a richly detailed top and a long soft skirt. If  you want a more feminine look and you have an athletic, toned body you should wear a dress that emphasizes curves and defines the waist. Even if I prefer long dresses I suggest you short ones if you have long, beautiful legs. At the same time if you don’t like to show your arms you can find long sleeve dresses. Necklines are very important too: they can frame greatly your decollete, emphasizing it and even making it looks more generous (sweetheart neckline) or just wrapping it softly. In matter of style you can really find everything you need: you can look like a real princess in a huge gown or stick to your rock soul in a black lace dress with a studded belt.

Finding something you like and that fits you is very important to enjoy this experience and feel comfortable and stunning at the same time. There aren’t written rules: you can wear every color, even the boldest one, every lenght and style. What really matters is how you feel and what makes you feel better.

I picked my favourite prom dresses just to dream a little more and to share them with you all. It was really hard to choose only one out of each category because there’s plenty I’d love to wear.

Short Prom Dresses category:

I’m a huge fan of chiffon but what I love the most about this dress is the embroidered top. The see-through effect and the flowers embroidered on it make this top, and the whole dress, girly and fancy at the same time. I also like the beaded belt on it.

Long Prom Dresses:

I know it looks like a wedding dress in this color but I like it so much that I had to show it to you all. I like everything about this dress: the beaded sleeves, the waist, the neckline and the fabric. It looks so light and comfortable but at the same time really elegant.

Cheap Prom Dresses:

Like I said before  I prefer long dresses on occasions like these so here’s another one. I picked it because I love the way it emphasizes the waist. I also like the neckline and the super light fabric. Finally the shape of the skirt is one of my favourite and the pink shade is just gorgeous.

I wish you all to find the perfect dress and to enjoy the search as much as the prom itself!

Sugar Candy

A quick post about a super quick mani.
I used another nailpolish from the Pupa “Special Effects” collection: it’s a pink base with many white tiny paillettes in it.
I really like the spring pastel shade and the elegant final effect. I think it combines perfectly the fancy effect and the delicate colour for an original but really wearable result. It’s perfect if you want to dare a little bit but not to too much and if you’re searching for an original variation of the classic pink nailpolish.

Nailpolish: Sugar Candy by Pupa in 006

Un post veloce su una manicure ancor più veloce.
Per realizzarla ho utilizzato un altro smalto della collezione Pupa “Special Effects”: base rosa chiaro e piccole paillettes bianche all’interno.
Adoro la tonalità pastello primaverile ed il finish elegante e soft. Penso che combini perfettamente l’effetto originale con un colore delicato e descritto per un risultato insolito, ma estremamente portabile. Insomma, é perfetto se volete osare un po’, ma non troppo, e se volete qualcosa di nuovo sul tema del classico smalto rosa.
