Superdry AW'15 Press Event

Hey lovelies! 

How has your weekend been? Mine consisted of wine-drinking, book-reading and youtube-watching, all of it done under duvet of course. This is the perfect kind of weekend if you ask me! 

Today I want to tell you about an event I went to last Thursday. Superdry were kind enough to invite me to their press event / AW'15 preview at the sleek Crock Bowling Alley, located in the Ham Yard Hotel. The cool eclectic mixture of neon sign and African inspirations provided a perfect background for Superdry's Autumn/Winter '15 collection.

Find Your Style City

Hey lovelies!

I don't know about you but I sure am excited it is finally Friday! It has been a long and stressful week and I am looking forward to spending the weekend catching up with a friend, reading and sleeping (emphasis on the latest). I might also do some shopping as I've been quite bored with my wardrobe lately. Put your hands up if you ever find yourself staring at you clothes completely uninspired in the morning.

Living in London where the temperatures don't vary all that much during the year I become more and more aware my wardrobe is tailored to cater to the Bulgarian climate of freezing cold winters and unbearably hot summers. I have plenty of cozy wool sweaters and breezy sundresses but almost nothing in between. *First world problems, I know. Sight*  

In case you're also looking to refresh your wardrobe take this fun test created by Farfetch to discover which is your style city - London, Moscow, New York, Sydney, Tokyo or Copenhagen. And don't forget to tell me which one did you get in the comments! Mine is New York :)

H'Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment from Lush | Review

Hello lovelies!

How have you been? I cannot believe it is already Sunday afternoon (as I am typing this). Why is it that the weekend always seems to fly while the working week drags along oh so slowly? 

Anyway, for me Sunday is always a pamper day when I treat my skin to a mask, deep condition my hair, do my nails and just enjoy an hour or two dedicated solely to myself. Since I have moved to London this little tradition has turned more into a necessity as the weather conditions and hard water are taking a toll on me. I've been noticing dryness, irritation, lackluster and dullness in both my skin and hair.

I've tried plenty of drugstore, high-end and homemade masks to prevent my hair from breaking, the ends from splitting and bring some life to it. Today I want to tell you about my latest discovery on the quest to a healthy, shiny mine.

Featured: Miss Evolution by Chantelle

Hello lovelies, 

How is your week going? Mine is crazy busy as usual and we all know what my usual way to relax is - browsing all of my favorite online stores with a glass of wine in my hand. Etsy is one of the marketplaces I visit quite often as I love discovering unique handmade treasures and precious vintage gems. 

One of the stores, or more accurately brands, I stumbled upon recently is Miss Evolution a.k.a. M.E. Chantelle, the girl behind the brand, is a fashion design student based in London. She says that her clothing and accessories range is 'about luxury clothes, jewelry and accessories with an feminine touch.' Inspired by the past to create innovation she believe's that 'fashion is a cycle that always goes back to the beginning' and new ideas evolve from old ones.

Winter Hand & Nail Care

Hello lovelies! 

As you've already seen from the title this post is going to be all about hand and nail care in the cold weather. Although the sun has been making appearances more often these past days, it is still very cold and windy in London. 

You might know from my previous post on hand care that my hands are naturally extremely dry so in the winter I have to take extra special care of them. The stars of my routine are L'Occitane's One Minute Scrub and Shea Butter Hand Cream, along with Nail Envy by O.P.I. 

I use L'Occitane's One Minute Scrub at least twice a week. It consists of a phase of organic brown exfoliating sugar to scrub and eliminate dead skin cells and of an oily phase of shea, sweet almond oil and grape-seed oils to help soften and nourish the hands. Every time I use it my skin feels renewed, hydrated and baby soft.

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. No spoiler review.

Hello lovelies!

Hope you've had a great February! I've been absent for the better part of it but I am trying to get back into the swing of things and post at least once a week. With a full-time job and a newly started MA program I don't have much time for anything. No one promised it was gonna be easy, right? 

Commuting to and from work I read quite a lot. Books have always been a big part of my life. Call me a book worm, a nerd or a day dreamer, they are my way to escape, to learn, to discover. I was considering building a new blog where I can write about literature but decided against it. After all, reading is a passion of mine, just like fashion is. 

With time (if you stick around) you'll find that I read quite a few different genres - non-fiction fashion and beauty books, contemporary, mystery, dystopian and post apocalyptic, sci-fi, fantasy and magical realism, classics, graphic novels ... the whole lot. 



Today, I want to talk about a book surrounded by a lot of controversy and strong opinions. Girl Online by Zoe Sugg took the world by a storm selling more copies in its first week than J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Soon after, an information leaked that the book or parts of it was actually ghostwritten by Siobhan Curham.

Travalo

Hello lovelies!

Sometimes I find myself wide awake in the small hours of the night browsing Amazon (or some other online store) and thinking: this is a really bad idea, I don't need it,  how am I going to wake up for work tomorrow... Oh, why the hell not?! Proceed to checkout. 

That is exactly how I discovered Travalo. What? A tiny spray bottle to hold your favorite scent on the go. I know what you're thinking - just another gimmick. But no! Didn't you think the same about the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara that's now a staple in so many makeup bags?
