Sneak Peek

Hello lovelies! So how was your first day of December? If I'd have to sum up mine in one word that word would have to be “cold” – not so fun, I know!

Today’s post will be short and will focus on the super exciting ASOS Christmas party. I am so happy to have been given the chance to take part in it and cannot wait for the date to arrive (just a couple more days left, eeek!)

Sweater Weather

Hi guys, how's it going? Hope you're having a great week! ♥

So as most of you are probably experiencing yourselves, winter is here - and oh, it's cold! As I'm writing it's snowing like crazy outside and the temperature is in the negatives - eeek! This was the definitive reason to write my "sweater weather" post - so here we go! *sipping hot cocoa*

ASOS Fashion Finder Competitions

Hello lovelies, happy hump day! Hope you're all having a wonderful, stress-free week! Today I want to talk to you about some great competitions you can take part in at ASOS Fashion Finder. If you have been following my posts (and if you'll read the "About Me" blog section) you'll know I'm a huge Fashion Finder fan and a member there for about 2 years. I love creating outfits, it's sort of my recreational, stress relieving thing to do plus it's a ton of fun! The community is so friendly and welcoming, you'll fit in in no time! Just this summer they hosted a competition in collaboration with Ibiza Rocks and the prize was a brilliant Ibiza vacation - and yes I won it! Well not "per say", I was chosen as second but the first prize winner wasn't available to travel at that time so I got to do it - huge YAY me! I was thinking of writing a post about my trip with a ton of pics filled with Ibiza awesomeness but it just seems so inappropriate to write such a post in this gloomy weather - is it just me? I digress! One of the brilliant competitions you can enter is the "Trending Now" looks competition where you basically have to upload your look based on the winter pastels or grunge trends. What's the prize you ask? Oh, just £125 to spend at ASOS. No joke, guys! Here's one of mine:

Firmoo Giveaway

I was recently contacted by the lovely folks over at Firmoo who offered me a pair of glasses of my choice; that's right, I wear glasses! I have terrible eyesight but use my glasses when absolutely necessary like driving or around the house. For some reason I think I look much better without them. I did wear contact lenses for almost a year but developed a weird allergy because of them so I went back to the good old glasses. Now, when the guys from Firmoo contacted me I thought it was such a great opportunity to get rid of my fixation about wearing glasses and find myself a pair I really love and actually wear all the time! I have always wanted a bigger pair, geek chic kind of style and found myself the perfect ones! Here are some pictures:

Pink Coat & Winter Pastels

As many other fashion followers out there I too have fallen in love with the pink coat trend. And not only! I love wearing pink and pastels which I don't normally do in the A/W season. This goes to show how easily influenced we can be by current trends. I haven't actually shopped around these trends though, I try to work it out from stuff I already have but a lot of times when going through the wardrobe pastel shades lure me into picking them. But enough chit-chat, time for some pictures! Today's outfit is a casual take on winter pastels.

Punk, Grunge, Chic!

Hello friends! I know, I have been MIA for months now but I'm back with a new look based on A/W13 trends. Don't know about you guys but I find myself greatly influenced by current tendencies in general. Grunge and punk have taken over the fashion world at the moment and yes, I am loving it! I wouldn't normally dress like this but I have really taken a liking to the edgy and darker side of fashion since such trends have made a comeback. Plus, I constantly create sets on Fashion Finder for grunge themed competitions so I'm sure this could be the cause of my darker mood. I caught the sun setting while taking the pictures, really love how the colours came out! Hope you enjoy the look and pictures! I missed you all! <3>

Summery and Feminine

Finally a new post! I know my lovelies, it's been a while - so sorry about that! I seized an opportunity to shoot some pictures a few hours ago as I went out with Andrei who by the way is getting really comfortable with the camera - thanks babe! Today's outfit is super girly; I went a little overboard with pink which I rarely do!

Sophisticated Chic

Hello my friends! Hope you are all well and had a wonderful weekend! Mine was lovely, I spent time with old friends and with my awesome boyfriend. We took long walks, talked, laughed, drank yummy cocktails and even ate at the first raw food restaurant in my home town - was so happy and pleased about that! Of course, I forgot to take a picture of our raw 'sushi', I need to get used to being more social hehe!

Today we took a few pictures of my outfit - sweet, feminine and chic, a quite versatile look featuring a gorgeous ASOS dress which I accessorised with pointed flats, a superb colour block bag and a statement necklace. Here are the pics:

ASOS FF Competitions

I have great news for you lovelies -
new competitions have arrived on ASOS Fashion Finder; and they're awesome! Let's start off with...

Oasis Fashion Competition
Basically you have to create an outfit inspired by the S/S '13 Oasis collection. I'd describe it as modern feminine: a lot of floral prints, beautiful pastels, cute dresses, all with a modern twist. There are 3 prizes up for grabs: 1st place £250 to spend on Oasis, 2nd place £75 and 3rd place £30. Read more in the competition TandCs. This is an outfit I entered:

Welcome, Summer!

Wonderful news:  it looks like summer is here to stay!! The last two weeks have been all about rain and cloudiness - that until yesterday when I took the chance to shoot some pictures in the wonderful natural light! Plus it's looking sunny today too so big yay!

I'd describe today's outfit as a sweet yet chic one - I paired a leopard print skater skirt with a basic white tee (I often wear basics and match them with great pieces) my wonderful brogues (which I love so much), a cute mini-satchel and accessorised it with recent buys: a cute boater hat and round sunglasses. Here are the pictures:

ShopStyle Festival Shopping Challenge

Today's post is a competition entry made possible by ShopStyle and the lovely Natasha (Girl in the Lens) who is judging it. The challenge is to create your ultimate festival outfit that costs no more than £200. If you'd like to enter follow this link for more details on how to do so - the prize is £1000 to spend on ShopStyle (I know, holy smokes!!). The timing is perfect actually as I wanted to write a festival inspired post!

I gave this a lot of thought and finally came to the conclusion that my ultimate festival outfit has got to be a 90's grunge inspired one. It's not only a really popular trend but a cool and easy-to-pull-off one. Plus I LOVE it!

So Bright!

My outfit post today is bright and cheerful (unlike the weather *rooting for summer*). If you check out my Fashion Finder account you'll see that I love creating bold outfits - well I love to wear them as well! ^^ I'd wear pretty much anything and add a bit of my personal touch - neons, bold print combos, you name it! Here are the pics

Monday Fun

Now who said Mondays can't be fun?! OK, I'm trying to be optimistic but it's not exactly panning out at the moment - but at least the weather is finally looking better so I'll be able to shoot some photos, yay! Today's post is another outfit collage I created on ASOS Fashion Finder which was well received in the community + it was posted on the home page over the weekend *so proud* ^^ It's a pop-art inspired outfit, topped off with metallics and a hint of sports luxe.

Metallic Details

I wanted to do a more colourful and summery outfit for today but the weather is so gloomy that I had to comply. I wanted to style these gorgeous trousers, don't think you can tell but they have a metallic finish to them and the colour is actually a deep blue violet-..ish (ugh, I'm not good with colours!)
I had an obsession with trousers at the beginning of spring and bought a lot of pairs but these one fit me the best and they're the easiest to style. I'm having second thoughts about the shirt, it looks so baggy on me although it's supposed to be a tight fit. The shoes and clutch I both love + they were a steal really - I bought the clutch on sale, it was down to £8 from £30 whoop! The shoes were down to £20 something from £60 ^^ I believe they are still in stock!

Outfit Collage + Music Monday

I create outfits on Fashion Finder on almost a daily basis, have developed a routine in the morning - I wake up and before doing anything really I find myself on FF creating a set and catching up with my very talented friends. My favourite from last week is Power Chic:

Stripes and Pop!

Wow, finally, my first post! *oh the excitement* I decided starting this blog a couple of months ago and since then have been working on its title, concept, design, etc. I'm quite happy with the result but would greatly appreciate any suggestions and/or feedback from you guys! :)


So, since this is a blog about fashion it's only fair that my first post would be about just that. I wore this on a night out and ended up at the cinema (watched Star Trek - Into the Darkness and it was amazing!). It's a smart casual outfit, comfy yet stylish - I paired a oh-so-now monochrome stripe dress with midi heels, a simple black with gold details bag and finished the look with a statement necklace. I'm awfully sorry about my hair - I'm letting it grow for the first time and it's not too short, not too long so not quite sure what to do with it!
