3CE Cosmetics Review


Hi cookies,

I recently received some 3 Concept Eyes products from www.cultbeauty.co.uk and I'm really liking them! In case you haven't heard of it, 3CE is a popular Korean makeup brand. Their packaging is super cute and being half Asian, I find that their products really suit my skin tone. 

I got 3 lipsticks and a pore minimizer:
This below is the 3CE Stylenanda Back to Baby Pore Velvet Primer and ladies, I have tried so many pore minimizers but none work as well as this one! Wow. It really helps blur out large pores and a little goes a long way:
This is the Love 3CE Glossy Lipstick in Small Step:
The lipstick looks kind of salmon in the tube but on the lips, it's a milky, peachy, nude shade. It is really subtle and delicate but lovely nonetheless! It glides on so smoothly and makes your lips nice and shiny. Nude colors usually wash me out but this one doesn't 😍

Here below is the 3CE Velvet Lipstick in Girls Girls:

This is a tomato red lipstick and it has a matte finish. 
My mamma (who is the coolest blogger 😚: http://saucysiciliana.blogspot.it) is wearing #Girls Girls and I'm wearing #Small Step here:
The third lipstick I got is the 3CE mood recipe matte lip color in Rows:
I am not a fan of brown lipstick so I went "Ugh" when I saw this in the tube. However, though this lipstick looks brown in the tube, once applied, it's a gorgeous dark, peachy nude. I find it slightly drying but if you prep your lips beforehand and apply a bit of lip balm, all is good! It makes my lips look plumper. I find that it looks like the kind of shade top models wear while pouting in fancy ads πŸ˜ƒ

Have you ever tried any 3CE/Stylenanda products?

Yesbabyonline


Hi dolls,

Long time no blog. Hope you are well and that the weather is nice. We've been having a few sunny days luckily but it's quite dreary today. A perfect day for staying in, surfing the web and checking out online stores. In fact, today I would like to introduce you to one lovely store in particular, specialized in Wedding dresses, Bridesmaid dresses, Cocktail dresses, Special Occasion dresses and Prom dresses online. This global online store is called yesbabyonline

Yesbabyonline is the place to go if you are looking for fashionable, sensual and affordable special occasion dresses. Browsing through their website, you'll notice that they offer a wide selection of dresses and that each one is more striking than the other. You could surely wear a yesbabyonline dress to The Oscars. Let me show you some of their items now and I'm sure you'll agree:

The eye-catching dress below reminds me of Jessica Rabbit...so provocative! πŸ‘€

Gorgeous Front-Split Beads A-line Chiffon Sleeveless Prom Dress

I usually don't like to reveal my back but I would totally buy this elegant and breezy dress and wear it at a 
cocktail party 🍸 or a fancy dinner in the summer:

A-Line Side-Slit Halter Newest Dark-Navy Backless Prom Dress

Oh wow, this sparkly, shimmery dress is just breathtakingly beautiful. The fabric is everything.
 I'm obsessed with this color and I even have a shimmery eyeshadow of the same color
The pale blue dress below is so very classy and reminiscent of bygone eras....

Sexy Sky Blue Prom Dresses Off-the-Shoulder Side Slit Gorgeous Evening Gowns

Mermaid style dresses are very in and pastels never go out of fashion. 
I think I've seen Kim Kardashian wear something similar:

Sweep-Train Applique Halter Mermaid Lace Elegant Prom Dresses

You will definitely not go unnoticed in this glittery gold dress! πŸ”

Luxury Gold Mermaid Prom Dresses Sleeveless Front Split Crystals Long Evening Gowns

As you can see, yesbabyonline offers so many different styles. 
The dress below is vintage-inspired and oh so charming. Probably my favorite :)
Now here's a dreamy dress....a dress fit for a fairy tale princess. 

Aren't these dresses stunning? Which one is your favorite? 
Impossible to choose just one, right? πŸ‘—

Zaful Lace Up Sweater Review


Hello cookies,

Happy New Year! Here I am back with another review about a gorgeous sweater from Zaful. I love the two Zaful sweaters which I showed you in my previous post but this sweater....I love it even more! It's soft, it's warm, it's beige, it's long, it has laces in the front...I'll let the pictures do the talking 😍

Not sure why I'm sticking out my jaw and chin here.
 I'm not a snob in real life πŸ˜ƒ
Check out the cool sleeves!
My Monica Bellucci look (according to my mamma πŸ˜‰):
 
 I LπŸ’–VE this sweater from Zaful. I'm going to be wearing it very often during this season. It is so well made, surprisingly sturdy and thick and I find that the V-neck and laces make it super flattering. This is also one size fits all and I have a feeling it's the kind of sweater that will look good on anyone. You can wear it with heels or sneakers and it'll still look lovely. I like how it's slightly long and it's just so comfy and cozy! I remember seeing it in military green, apricot and brick red too....what was my New Year's Resolution again? Oh right, no more clothes. Maybe I'll make that next year's resolution...


                          Let's Rock, 2018! Buon Anno a Tutti! πŸ’ƒ

Zaful Review: Pom-Pom Sweater and Lace up Sweater


Hi dolls,

Hope you had a jolly Christmas and that you're enjoying your holidays. I think I've gained a couple of kilos and that's just from Christmas lunch! Good thing about winter is that you can hide your belly under baggy sweaters πŸ˜„ I used to think loose fitting sweaters just made me look like a sack of potatoes but now I'm obsessed with them (baggy sweaters, not potato sacks πŸ˜‰)! I think the online clothing and accessories store that sells the cutest sweaters is Zaful. In case you haven't heard of this low-cost online boutique, ladies and gentlemen (yes, they also offer menswear!), I highly encourage you to visit them ASAP! Just take a look at their unique selection of sweaters perfect for this season. Bye bye boring sweaters and hello staying warm in style!πŸ‘‹ Let me show you two gorgeous sweaters that I'm wearing these days from Zaful:


Here I am wearing the Zaful Lantern Sleeve Pompoms Sweater
 Isn't it so cute?? Just look at those furry pom-poms! 😍
 I gotta say not only is this sweater pretty and playful, it's also thick and warm so I also give it a high rating in terms of quality. The color is very particular because it's a mixture of pink and lilac and it's more one or the other depending on the lighting. πŸ’– The lantern sleeves also make this sweater special and what I like about it is that you can dress it up (chic style) and dress it down (casual style). Zaful offers it in one size and even though I'm not tall, I like how it fits me. It's super comfy!
The second Zaful sweater I'm wearing here is the 
 It's a beautiful medium grey, knitted sweater....
 ....and this is how it looks on the back! Oooh la la
This sweater is very trendy! Zaful is always updated with the latest trends, in fact. I'm so stuck in the past that I didn't even know laces were in fashion. My soul belongs to the fifties but I gotta say it's nice to dress like a "modern" girl every now and then 😊 This grey sweater is also nice and warm and I'm very impressed with the quality. I like how you can adjust the laces for a more tighter or looser fit. It's also quite versatile because it can go with so many different colors. I'm really pleased with both of these sweaters from Zaful. They're both so cozy and fun to wear! Zaful's customer service is also excellent. I hope you found this review helpful and if you check Zaful out, happy shopping and stay warm! πŸ’•

A fashionable winter with Fashionmia



Hi cookies!

Brrrrrr, I almost felt like wearing my woolen gloves to write this post haha. Oh, but I love winter. So happy that Christmas is almost here! What did you ask Santa for this year?? When I was younger I didn't like winter very much because I felt my outfit options were very limited: either a black turtleneck sweater or...a grey sweater. I wasn't very creative nor daring with colors. Now I've come to love dressing for winter! Soft, baggy sweaters, warm and fuzzy dresses, colorful coats, cute boots....and I know just the place to go for clothes to wear during this season (or any season for that matter πŸ˜‰): Fashionmia. 

You probably already know about this online shop that offers a huge selection of gorgeous, low-cost clothes and accessories. I've mentioned it several times on my blog and reviewed their items too, which I continue to love and wear. The great thing about this online store is that they always add new items, keeping up with the latest trends. I'm obviously more into classic/vintage style fashion and Fashionmia also offers retro style clothing items! The diversity they offer is what makes Fashionmia a very special store. It's difficult to choose just one item when you shop at Fashionmia....you end up wanting to buy everything! Since I've been nice (and not naughty!), Dear Santa, there are quite a few fashion clothing items that I'd like from Fashionmia....πŸ˜ƒ

As it's cold outside, a coat is obligatory and here are a few of my favorites from Fashionmia's Outerwear selection:

You can't go wrong with red (I'm sure Santa will agree! πŸ˜„)
How cute is this belt that turns into a bow??
A leather jacket is a timeless wardrobe essential and this one is perfect!

Now, as for what to wear under my coat, I have a few ideas....😏 
Let's take a look at some of my favorite Cheap Bodycon Dresses.

This vintage-style dress is just irresistible! I love the color combination, the bow on the collar
 and how figure hugging it is! It also looks so soft...
Velvet is the latest thing -once a classic, always a classic!- and look at these two beauties:

You didn't think I'd forget about polka dots, did you?? 😍
I just love this saffron/pumpkin color:
This sweater dress looks so warm and cozy ❤
Last but not least, here's a cute and classy dress that my wardrobe absolutely needs!πŸ’•

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! πŸŽ„πŸŽ…⛄
