Actually, I wasn’t the subject of the shooting, but my friend Ana decided to take some pictures of me, so I could use them on my blog. They were forgotten ever since.

Running in style

How to wear running shoes without looking are halfway to the gym? Chinese model Ming Xi is the most stylish answer!ming xi, street style, running shoes, sports trend, nike air pegasus, blogger, how to style running shoes

Recently, while browsing through a fashion magazine, I came across with this young lady rocking the same Nike Air Pegasus I’m wearing on my last outfit post! Who is she? Ming Xi, a chinese “it” model who knows her way into the sportive-chic trend. I love wearing comfortable shoes, and by this I mean I pretty much wear flats and sneakers all day, but the running kind is not so easy to style – at least for me. Having this exact pair (it’s actually from the men’s department, but you can’t really go wrong with casual cool black & white so…), and looking at it on this super cool girl gave me some new style ideas.

Style tips on how to style your running shoes:
- bare legs for extra coolness;
- black tights and an oversized jacket can’t go wrong;
- skinny jeans for the everyday casual;
- anything Chanel, when available in your closet!

Hello lovelies! ♥ I hope spring is blooming wherever you are! I’m totally into spring mood now, so I decided to leave you a bit of a floral inspiration from this notebook! The print is made from an actual lemon, died in this adorable light purple shade. Somehow, lemons & flowers go well together!

After a few gloomy and depressing rainy days, the sun decided to show up around here. On the last days the temperature outside has been so warm and inviting that spending some hours enjoying the sun is the one thing to do. I went to this lovely park called Fabrica da Pólvora with a friend to take some pictures for our school projects, and ended up asking her to photograph me for the blog! She did a great job don’t you think?

Anyways, mixing patterns is my favorite trend to play with when it comes to deciding what to wear. Especially during spring and summer, flowers & stripes are my thing!style and expect, flowers, stripes, spring 2014, outfit, neon pink, neon skirt, flower printstyle and expect, flowers, stripes, spring 2014, outfit, neon pink, neon skirt, flower print

Naked 3 – the rose addiction

Rose gold - yes, this trend is still strong with me.
My newest addiction to my rose gold collection is the Naked 3 – the latest in the Naked department. When it came out I knew it was the right palette for me, but took me a while to finally make up my mind and go get it. I usually stick with the basics when it comes to eyeshadow (guess what? Naked Basics is my favorite thing in the world!) so buying 12 eyeshadows at once was kind of overwhelming for me.

I’m learning what looks I can pull of with it, and so far I have 5 favorite shadows:
#2 Dust – with little pieces of glittery gold
#3 Burnout – the perfect light rose gold shade
#5 Buzz – shimmery pink
#7 Nooner – matte, almost taupe rose
#9 Factory – deep & shimmery, with a purple/brownish tone

The palette also comes with 4 primer samples, and although each one can be use several times, I’m saving those for the long nights out.

Are you still into rose gold as much as I am? Leave me a comment with your opinion about this post, and whether if you would like to see more about makeup products or even a tutorial?..
