Getting Ready for the New Season with FashionMia

FashionMia Wishlist


Can you even believe that we are already almost at the end of August? This year is passing by really quickly for me and that is why I'm already thinking in the new season that is about to start! Whether it is Fall that is around the corner for you or as in my case Spring, I thought I'd share with you a little wishlist with my favorite pieces from FashionMia

This is a store that has a great variety of clothing items for women, which are super trendy and affordable so you can always look stylish without breaking the bank. So if you are looking to update your wardrobe for the new season you may want to take a look at their website. 

Now, talking about my favorites, I have found an amazing selection of bodycon dresses at this store. This type of dresses is great for many different occasions because they are super flattering and very easy to style. You just need to choose your favorite one, add a pair of pumps or sandals, a nice clutch and you are good to go! The dress does all the magic for you ;)

If you like to stand out from the crowd with these two dresses you will for sure caught everyone's attention. A red dress is the easiest way to get that femme fatale look but if you are looking for something even more fun and interesting, this other sequin dress is the perfect choice to make your look shine!

But if you are looking for something more classic that is not so over the top, like these two other options I showed you before, I think these two dresses will be the right fit for you. The white one is an absolute dream! I love the simplicity of this design but it's yet so powerful that it will make you look like a queen with no effort! On the other hand, the yellow lace dress is so beautiful and feminine and with that color, you will get a unique outfit without a doubt.

In case you want to update your fall wardrobe and maybe add a new jacket to your collection, there is a great selection of women's winter jackets available at this store. My favorites include these two bomber jackets that you can see below. I totally loved the print of the blue one, I think it looks very chic and it will add a pop of color to your outfits during the cold months to come. But also the yellow-gold bomber jacket is a very interesting alternative if you are looking for a solid color. Anyway, no jacket wishlist is complete without a leather jacket. This is definitely a must-have for the fall-winter season because they are perfect for transitional weather and they also make you look super cool and give you that rock star vibe!

So, these are all of my favorites from FashionMia, I hope you like them as well and let me know in the comments below what is the piece that you like the most from this wishlist!

A Coffee Date at Nucha

A Coffee Date at Nucha


You may remember from one of my last posts that I went to have a coffee date with one of my blogger friends Maggie from Ohmagblog recently, but I never showed you all the pictures from that day!

We went to have some coffee and sweets in a place I like a lot but I didn't have the chance to go in a long time. The place is called Nucha and it has some really delicious cakes and pastries.

I normally don't go to this place because it's a little bit expensive and also because it's located in Palermo and I don't visit that area that often. But, as I needed to get some good photos for my blog that day we decided to go somewhere special.

The truth is that during weekends all the nice coffee places in Palermo are all packed with people so we ended up going to Nucha because they have a couple of seats available so I decided to stay there. It was a great choice because I remembered how much I love this place!

Nucha has a very beautiful decoration, very clean and bright. It's one of those places that you feel cozy and comfortable to be there. Also, the food is delicious, they have many great options to have lunch but my favorite time to go there is in the afternoon for some coffee and tea because I love their cakes and pastries. 

On that day, I chose to have some organic green tea along with a cinnamon roll which was absolutely delicious. Maggie chose a coffee and some waffles with yogurt and fruits. Not only they looked great for pictures but I can imagine they were also delicious.

Must Visit Place: Zagreb 360

Must-Visit Spot: Zagreb 360

I remember last year I tried to start a little series of posts about must-visit spots in Zagreb. In the first one (that you can find here) I talked about Dolac market. Today I want to share with you another place you can't miss if you are going to this city and continue with this series. 
The place I'm referring to is called Zagreb 360 and it's the right spot to go if you want to get the best views of the city. 

The people from Zagreb 360 say that you haven't been to Zagreb if you haven't visited this observation deck and I can say I totally agree with this statement. The first time I went to this city, I didn't have the chance to go there and I felt like I was missing something.


 




Because the typical postcard view of Zagreb you can see when you google this city, with the Main Square and the Cathedral just behind it, for example, you can only get it from the observation deck of Zagreb 360. But not only that, as their name indicates, you can get a full 360 view of the city and see all the most iconic building, so it's the perfect place to go and take thousands of pictures. 









In addition, the place has a nice coffee shop inside so you can also enjoy a delicious cup of cappuccino or another drink while you get lost in the incredible views at the same time. 




What I loved the most about this place is that your entrance ticket is valid for the entire day which means that you can go there as many times as you want during that day so you can get the best views and pictures with all the light changes. That is exactly what I did when I visited Zagreb 360, I went there the first time around midday, and then I went back for the sunset. I took a lot of pictures and then I drank a coffee while I was waiting for the night to come because I also wanted to get some night shots. 






So, if you go I highly recommend that you do the same, and go at different times of the day so you can appreciate the city with different lighting as I did. 

Anyway, I hope you like this post and you find it useful in case you are planning to visit the capital of Croatia. I would also love to know if you like to visit this kind of places when you are traveling?

Scandinavian Decoration Style Inspiration

Home Design Scandinavian Inspiration Seize your Style


I'm not at all an expert when it comes to home decor but it's a topic that I have started to research a little bit more about because I'm very interested in redesigning my bedroom. 
I think I was never that into home design because I had no idea which was my particular style when it comes to decoration. Having a style is very important not only for fashion because it gives you some sort of guide and it helps you to make the right decisions, in accordance with your personality and taste. 

But it was some weeks ago that a friend of mine shared with me this test to help you find your style in regards to interior design and I found it super useful! As I said before, I had no idea what I liked for my bedroom space and my bedroom didn't have any style or theme. So after taking this test and finding out which was my personal style I decided it was time to make some adjustments to my room in order to reflect this. 

You are probably wondering now what was the result of the test? Well, my style is Scandinavian and I thought it makes a lot of sense with my personality. After finding out this, I have started doing some research and looking for some inspiration in Pinterest. So which are the main elements of this decoration style and how you can achieve the Scandinavian look in your home? Let's dive into them!

1- Neutral colors

Scandinavian style is all about neutral colors, most of the images I have seen of rooms in Pinterest are designed mainly in white and grey shades. Some of them also included some touches of pastel colors such as pink and light blue. These are perfect for you to add if you want to give your room a girly touch :)

2- Light colored wood

I have also seen that most of the furniture is either white or is made of light colored wood. I really like how this looks because it gives a sense of warmth to the room. If you can't decide between white and this light wood there are some pieces of furniture that mix both and they also look great!

3- Metallic accents

Another key element of this style of decoration is to add some metallic accents, here you can choose your favorite metals, whether you prefer gold, silver or rose gold, some metallic pieces and accessories will add more interest to your space.

4- Choose geometric shapes

When picking your furniture pieces, lamps or anything else you want to include in your room, opt for those that have simple geometric shapes to get that clean Scandinavian style. This will help you to maintain some theme and cohesion in your home space.

5- Include plants

Last but not the least, when I was looking for some inspiration on Instagram, all the rooms I saw there included at least one plant. I think that pop of green looks really cool with the rest of the elements and it also gives me a fresh feeling. So, a nice plant is definitely a must-have if you want to achieve this decoration style.

Well, these were all the main elements of the Scandinavian style that I was able to identify and that I will try to incorporate to my bedroom in order to create something that I like more and that represents better my personality and style. As you can see, it's not so difficult to do, you just need to find which are the key elements of that style and try to choose accordingly when you are purchasing something for your home, having that style in mind.

I hope you find this post useful and I would love to know if you have a decoration style? If you do, let me know what is it! :)

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask Review

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask Review

My latest beauty obsession has been, without a doubt, sheet masks! They seem to be everywhere and it looks like there is a sheet mask for each and every single need your skin may have. 

So, I have been trying a few sheet masks I was able to find here in Buenos Aires, but I was really looking forward to testing a real Korean sheet mask because I feel like this was a thing that they have invented so they probably are the best in this topic and also because I have been really into Korean beauty lately. 

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask

Anyway, I was really lucky because I was sent these Klairs sheet masks from the Korean beauty store Wishtrend and I got super excited to try them out! The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask is designed to moisturize and soothe the skin and to also help to strengthen the protective barrier of the skin. 

I have already tried their Rich Moist Soothing Serum which I like a lot (you can read my full review of this product here) and I continue to use every day on my skincare routine so I was hoping that this mask also gave me the same good results. 

What I like about this sheet mask is that is very gentle and it has very basic and natural ingredients, such as, aloe vera leaf extract, hyaluronic acid, and Centella Asiatica extract along with 5 different types of ceramides which work together to strengthen the skin barrier. 

Korean Beauty Klais Sheet Mask Review

The mask is very easy to use, it's divided into two pieces, one for the forehead and eye area and then another part for the mouth area. I think that this makes it a lot easier for me to apply. After you apply it, you have to wait for 15-20 minutes and then you can remove the mask and pat the remaining product so that your skin can absorb it. 

During the 20 minutes, I left the mask on, it didn't move or fell from my face and it felt very refreshing, cooling and soft. It doesn't have a strong scent and to me, that is a plus because it feels more natural.

After I removed the mask, I could tell that my skin felt great, a lot more hydrated and recovered from all the stress I was carrying on from the week. These masks became a new weekend ritual for me now because since I have started working again I feel like my skin is suffering those fewer hours of sleep and maybe not eating as well as I was doing before. 

So they are really helping my skin to be at a better condition and I totally consider getting them again in the near future. I really hope you find this review helpful and let me know if you are using any other sheet masks at the moment? Which ones are your favorites?
