Hello lovelies!

I was asked by Suzhoudress to pick out a few of their dresses to review on my blog and youtube.
I was happy to do so, because they have the biggest selection of beautiful party dresses, for every possible occasion and every style. It was hard to pick two of my favourite ones, so I decided to try out something from their best sellers!

I was excited because I've been working with them in the past, and I know the quality of their dresses is really supreme :-)

I picked these two beautiful models:

My size for these dresses is US 6, and they both fit perfectly.

Dress #01 shop here
This is a very elegant illusion black sleeveless sexy short party dress that can be wear for homecoming or any other special occasion, even just a simple dinner date out in a restaurant!

Dress # 02 available here
Next dress that I picked is this gorgeous appliques tulle black sleeveless 2019 sexy homecoming dress. On the website it's described as a dress for "homecoming", and indeed it's a super special dress, but you can actually wear it even for everyday!!! You don't believe me? OK, just picture it with an oversized sweater on top, and a pair of sneakers. Basically, it'll look as a tulle skirt paired with some very cool and casual details to make it appropriate for everyday and super comfy.

The beading on this dress is so beautiful and well made!

Don't forget to check out my review video where I try these dresses on, to see how they actually fit!

In this video I also share with you my embarrassing prom story, so in case you haven't heard it yet, it'll definitely make you laugh!

OK guys, I hope you liked this post! As you can see, I'm trying to post more often in this period!
If you have any questions for me, or requests for my future posts, feel free to leave them down in the comments' section!
Thank you very much for stopping by :-)

Summer jewellery trends

Hello guys!

I'm here to bring you another post about summer trends, since you guys seem to like them so much!
This time, I'm going to talk about jewellery and accessories, as I feel those are very important part of your summer style.

Every style can be updated with the right kind of jewellery. You don't even need to buy new clothes to keep up with the season's trends, it's enough to get a few pieces of jewellery and accessories that will do the trick!

Now, you can opt for more timeless, classic pieces, or you can get a few cheaper, "trendy" items, whatever you prefer. I'd suggest to definitely invest in a piece or two that you can wear for years to come, and then, to spend an extra couple of remaining $$ from your budget, to those "trendy" pieces that are the must have of the season.

Jewellery is also a great idea for gifts giving, so if you have your special somebody's birthday coming up, or anniversary, it's one of the best options to explore.

Get name necklace is definitely one of the cool items that never go out of style. I've had mine for almost 10 years now, and it's always on trend, and I'm so happy that I received it as a gift from my Mum.

I want to share with you some of the pieces that I think you might like:

This is the style of the necklace that I have, only with my name written, obviously! You can choose from different fonts, and it can be in silver, gold, or rose gold!

I also have a heart necklace that I never take off! It was a gift from my grandparents when I was just a couple of years old! I absolutely love it, and it's sort of my good luck charm.
On the GNN store I found this one that I like:

It's a heart necklace, but also a family tree, and it has the option of having your and your family members names engraved, so you always carry them close to your heart :-)

Did you know that monogram bracelets are also very popular? During the winter time, when we wear  long sleeves, it's harder to spot our bracelets, but in summer, bracelets are always a must. You can layer them, or just wear one dainty piece that will stand out!

I love this silver bracelet, and the fact that you can engrave your initials. I used to have a similar model, but with time the color wore off, so I no longer wear it. But I'd love to get it again, this time in sterling silver, or gold, so I know I'll have it forever!

These were some of the prettiest pieces that I've came across, that are also very popular this summer!
You can click here to see more and choose your favourite piece!

Let me know, what is your favourite jewellery, that you think of as your "good luck" charm?

Hello lovelies!

I recently purchased a new hair styling tool, and I wanted to share it with you.
I was attracted to Christina Aguilera's hair straightening brush that I found at my local Lidl supermarket for under € 15.
The price was convenient, and I needed something that would help me manage my hair in between straightening with my ghd (I usually straighten my hair with ghd hair straightener twice a week, after washing and blow drying my hair). But sometimes, I wake up with (sort of speaking), quite a weird situation on my head, so I need something to quickly help me fix that!

This brush has ceramic coating, ion function (which will make your hair smoother and silkier), LED display (variable temperature settings from 120° to 180°), and it promises straight hair with just a single brushstroke!

Indeed, it's quite effective, and you can see that in my review video where I filmed even my first impressions:

The negative thing about this brush is the fact that it takes quite a long time to heat up (I'm used to my ghd's that heat up in less than a minute, and this is definitely not the case with this brush).
To optimize time, I plug it in, set to desired temperature, then proceed with getting ready for the day (putting my make up on, getting dressed etc.), by the time I'm finished getting ready, the brush has heaten up and it's ready to use!

Another negative thing is the fact that it doesn't come with a thermo-protective pouch, so it's not easy to bring it along when travelling, and after using it, you need to wait until it cools down, in order to store it away.

Styling ideas:

Glossy & Sleek

Sleek and shiny hair in an instant

- lean your upper body forwards and slowly brush your hair from your neck to the tips in one stroke
- then upright your upper body again and carefully brush the top layer of hair to create a smooth finish
-to do so, follow the brush along the hair with your free hand and smooth it down
-the ionic hairbrush neutralises the static charge in the hair

Sleek & Lofty

A ponytail is a good look for any occasion

-brush through your hair thoroughly
-tease the hair on the top of your head and pull it all to the back of your head
-tie it up into a high ponytail using a hair tie
-wind a strand of hair around the hair tie and pin it in place so that the hair tie is no longer visible
(this is a trick that I actually do quite often!)

Sidewise & Low

An eye-catching side ponytail with a low side parting:

-brush through your hair thoroughly
-pull your hair over to the side you want the ponytail on
-tie the hair into a low ponytail on one side with a hair tie
-fix the roots in place with some styling cream for optimum hold

And remember, summer is ideal time to wear cute hair accessories! They'll draw the attention from the bad roots situation, and fix any bad hair day, making you instantly look trendy and put together, like you actually made an effort!

How to dress in hot weather

Hello lovelies!

Here in Italy we're experiencing a very hot summer! Actually we're in the middle of a heat wave.
I used to love summer, sunny and warm days, but these temperatures are way too high!
When the temperature goes up to 40°, you have two options: Escape to the seaside and spend your days in bathing suit, at the beach (lucky you!), or stay in, with an air conditioner on.

However, most of us can't just abandon our everyday activities and work to escape the heat wave, so we just need to deal with it!
The question is, how to dress for such heat, in order to stay cool, and look put together, like you actually made an effort? offers a variety of different options, so let's take a look together!

Recently, me and my colleagues from work, had organised a summer party. It was super hot that evening, and everybody ended up sweating and just fighting the mosquitos :-/
For such occasions, we need to look at sexy party dresses online and here are a few models that I'd personally wear for the occasion:

I personally love lace dresses, and this pink color just makes this dress very pretty, and very summery! I do have similar dresses in my wardrobe already, so I'm picking out from only what I truly love and wear!

This next dress is very elegant, feminine and sexy! Ideal for a night out! This print is very popular at the moment, I've seen it on many high end designer clothes.

During the day, at very high temperatures, it's best to wear light clothes and casual dresses.
Here are some casual dresses for women that I like:

I love the color, the floral print and the model of this dress. It's perfect for summer in the town, and it looks very pretty and lady like!

Another absolutely beautiful dress is this tassel trumpet sleeve bohemian maxi dress, that you can also wear as a swimsuit cover up.

How do you like these dresses?
These are just a few of my fave ones that I wanted to share with you.

Summer sales shopping guide

Hello lovelies!

Summer sales are still going on, so I thought it would be fun to share my little shopping list and a few  tips on how to successfully shop on sales!
We're all happy when we're able to get a good deal, but it's important to keep focus on the things you really need: Often we buy something only because it was an "amazing deal", only to find ourselves never actually reaching for this item!
Before going shopping, take a look at your closet to check what you actually need, and it's also a good idea to browse through fashion magazines, favourite fashion blogs or instagram profiles, to get inspired as to in what direction do you want your style to go this season.
It's good to update your existing wardrobe and style with a few key items of the new season.

On-line shopping is great because it gives you the possibility of avoiding crowded shops, and you can also find great sales and deals on line. is one of those on line shopping destinations that offer a big selection of latest trends at affordable prices.

They have a beautiful selection of retro dresses, and I particularly liked this model, because of its delicate floral print and a beautiful color!

This retro floral dress is available here:

Another beautiful summer dress that caught my eye is this yellow lemon print swing dress:

I'm in love with this dress! Lemon is also very trendy print this summer, I've seen it on T-shirts, shorts, dresses...
This lemon print dress is available here:

Zapaka web shop also offers a lot of pretty accessories, from jewellery to sunglasses etc.

My favourite pieces from their necklace collection is this dainty pearl shell necklace:

This necklace is so delicate, it'll go with absolutely any outfit!
The necklace is available here:

Since we're in summertime, sunglasses are a must and this season cat eye sunnies are the top choice!

Black cat eye sunglasses are very chic and it's a model that I personally love!

Zapaka store also has their youtube channel where they share customer's reviews and fashion tips!

Summer 2019. must have dresses

Hello guys!

As you already know, here on my blog I like to talk about fashion and share with you inspiring outfit ideas and shopping tips and so for this post I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite styles of dresses for this summer season.

In summertime, when the weather is hot, I'm all for wearing easy breezy dresses...I love floral prints, romantic style, and this is also one of the biggest trends this summer.
Summer dresses are easy to wear, you don't need to think too much about styling, just throw the dress on, add some dainty accessories, and you're ready to go! is one of those affordable on line shopping destinations that always keeps up with the latest trends in fashion.
I heard about them many times before, so I decided to check out their current offer and present you some of the hottest summer trends that they currently offer at very affordable prices.

Remember, now we're in the middle of summer sales, so it's definitely the right time to add a piece or two in your existing wardrobe and update your style.

Summer is also a period when most parties take place, because of the nice weather and the possibility to celebrate outdoors.

I recommend you to check vintage party dresses sales and pick your favourite!
As I've mentioned before, floral print dresses are a big trend this season, and from this is definitely one of my favourite:

The color, the print and the model...I absolutely love everything about this dress!

I know that floral print isn't everyone's cup of tea...some women prefer wearing sexy women bodycon dresses and I personally fell in love with this one:

Another quite romantic style model, but the polka dot pattern makes this dress super cute and a timeless piece basically.

Bohemian style is also very current for this summer season, and I suggest a dress like this one:

The whole styling here is definitely a spot on! I actually love to wear maxi dresses with leather or suede boots, it looks very chic and bohemian.

Denim dress is another big trend this summer, but you don't have to worry that it'll go out of style any time soon: A good denim dress can actually be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come! You can definitely consider it an investment piece.

Last, but not least, is another trend that's here to stay is ethnic print dress, such piece will never go out of style!

My Name Necklace: Personalized Jewellery

Hello beauties!

Today I feel inspired to share with you another blog post. In this one I'd like to talk about my current jewellery obsession.
I used to wear a lot of custom jewellery, bold and chunky statement pieces, but over the years my style has changed and grown and today I'm all about dainty jewellery and pieces that are made to last.
I love jewellery that tells a story, such as personalized name on necklace , such pieces obviously have special meaning and are also a great gift idea.

I actually already own my name necklace, it's sterling silver, and it was a gift from my Mum for one Christmas many years ago. I still love to wear it and I'm also often pairing it with other dainty pieces that I own.
This kind of jewellery will never go out of style.

At Getnamenecklace web shop they have a big selection of personalized jewellery at cheap prices.

Very popular necklaces among Mums are personalized kids charms necklace, the price of these necklaces can be quite high, so it's good to know there is a much more convenient option to choose from.

This is also such a great gift idea for all Mums!

Similar necklace is definitely on my wish list!

I'm also loving custom infinity name necklace as they have a special meaning of an eternal love and bond.
The options are many, but this simple one is my favourite and you can choose how many names do you want to have engraved.

Cross necklaces are also good gift option to all who see it as a sign of faith, and cross necklaces will never be outdated.

I particularly like this dainty model:

You can shop here and check the rest of the jewellery selection.

At Getnamenecklace you'll find a big selection of rings, necklaces, bracelets & earrings, special collection jewellery and charms, and also a lot of gift ideas for Mom, Grandma, Friends, Kids, Him or Her!

These days I never take off my 3 golden necklaces with Angel, Heart and "Morcic", my hometown's good luck charm. I'll tell you more about it in another post if you'd like me to!

Let me know do you have a favourite jewellery piece and what did you put on your wish list after reading this post?

Hello guys, I'm back with 5 outfits to inspire good mood!

Hello guys!

Long time no chat!
It's been a while since my last post, I actually can't believe it's been almost 6 months.
What started like a mini break from posting, turned into a very long period without me being active here :-/
The reason for that is mainly the fact that I rarely have time free to dedicate to posting. I'm trying really hard to keep up with my youtube channel, and post at least one video a week, but combining that with working on my blog posts, well it was just too much.
Lately my hubby has been travelling a lot for work, so during the weekdays I'm alone with my little one, and on weekends, when my hubby's at home, I work. So it's been tough and we've been super busy. I hope you'll understand. I never really thought of quitting my blog, it's just that sometimes I prefer to go to sleep, rather than staying awake to blog, whilst my little one is taking a nap.
I really trully enjoy motherhood and it's my choice to dedicate myself fully to it: Everything else comes after that! 

Anyway, I'm going to try really hard to come back to posting, as often as I can! Now it's a little past midnight, my son is asleep, and I'm typing this post for you, because, clearly I feel motivated!

I'd like to share with you 5 outfits that are easy to wear, quite casual, but meant to inspire good mood, as this is what fashion is all about!

Here in Italy we've been under a true heat wave, with very high temperatures during the day and night!
My style hasn't changed too much since I became a Mum, only now I prefer to wear functional, comfy and practical clothes and footwear. I'm constantly running around, or running after my little one, at least I want to feel good in what I'm wearing!
Of course, I still like it to be cute and on trend, with a touch of personal style.
In my wardrobe, you can find a lot of denim, rompers/ jumpsuits, cool print cotton tees, and comfy footwear: boots and sneakers.

Outfit # 01

I'm wearing my cotton grey tee paired with this cozy white romper from H&M.
I have a neon yellow Converse, Ray ban sunnies, and a denim shirt in case it gets a bit chilly in the afternoon.

Outfit # 02

I'm wearing my good old skinny jeans from Zara, paired with colorful cotton tee, and a fringe jacket by Hollister.
Again, I'm wearing super comfy footwear, and a colorful necklace, to add that summer touch to the outfit.

Outfit # 03

This outfit calls for summer vacation!
In fact, I'm wearing this super cozy and colorful jumpsuit by Hollister that I always bring with me on my summer vacations. I paired it with a crochet knit sweater on top, as it was a bit windy that day.
White All Star sneakers are my must have!

Outfit # 04

I enjoy wearing mini white skirt in summer time and it can be denim, or leather, as in this photo (from Zara). As I've mentioned, I like to complete my looks with something denim: It can be a jacket, shirt, or even a vest, I think it always looks nice and gives to the outfit that comfy everyday feel.

Outfit # 05

This outfit is super casual as I'm wearing a pair of jeggings and a simple grey sweatshirt, but the colorful boots make it cuter and more interesting.

Lastly, don't forget to smile!
Whatever you're wearing, it can look amazing if you have enough confidence and positive attitude!

I hope you enjoy this post!
Please leave me your comments, I'd love to hear from you.
I hope I'll chat to you soon :-)
