Iron Man ♥

Heya babes!

How are you all? ♥

So it was a bit crazy day today. I was at school until 7 pm, and I still feel I haven't recovered. The Russian lecture was literally too much for my head today. Anyway, I figured I'd post this outfit which I personally loved a lot.

Skirt: Primark Top: New Yorker Tights: Asos Sneakers: Boohoo Bag: Mango Jacket: secondhand Scarf: Gina Tricot Rings: Gina Tricot Earrings: Gina Tricot

So there you go, an outfit built around my Iron Man print skirt which I seriously love (and I can't wait for the Spring to properly use it again). I tried to create something with a bit of retro type of vibe to it, but it's totally up to you if I managed to do that.

Let me know your thoughts about this look in the comments below!

Now, I gotta go catch some sleep. I have 6:30 am wake up, so I shouldn't even be typing this late. But, what can you do if there's only so many hours in a day and you have so much to do... (And, I gotta get the old posts over and done with before the Halloween ones.) I'll see you guys soon!

Have a lovely day ♥

Geometric vs. Skulls ♥

Heya guys!

How are you all? ♥

So apparently it's been a week since I posted. Yikes. Didn't mean to stay away so long but schedules have been pretty crazy here. But finally, I sat down, I opened Blogger and actually started typing. And it feels so good.

Some of you may have noticed on Twitter, that I've started thinking about the Halloween already. I'm planning on doing some fun little costume posts (I have six ones I cannot choose from, so I try to make as many of them as I can), nail art ideas, food inspiration - and finally I will show how we celebrate (however lightly) the Halloween at our place. Sounds like fun?

I hope so.

Okay, so today, it's time for some new nail art:

First up, this cool little number inspired by Instagram user @sassyshelly129, who had created a gorgeous striping tape mani I had to try out myself, and I just altered it a bit so it wouldn't be so much copying, but more of a recreation.

The polishes I used are all by China Glaze: Desert Sun, Stoked To Be Soaked, Roguish Red and I Sea The Point. And, as mentioned, the patterns were made with the help of striping tape.

Next, one of my favorite manis ever. This one had so much to it and it was so much fun to paint. I think I will do more these when I have a bit more free time. (So maybe even the coming weekend...)

For those who care, I did paint these 100% by free hand, and I could probably do tutorials for the prints some day if you want to.

Polishes used were Essie Licorice and Muchi Muchi, and the rest by China Glaze: Kalahari Kiss, White On White and Feel The Breeze. Studs are from Born Pretty Store.

So these are the pics for today, I really hope you liked this post at least a bit. I had fun making it, no matter what. ;)

Let me know your thoughts about the nails in the comments below!

Now, I'm going to quickly sort out the pictures for tomorrow's post and even though I have 9-hour epic school day, I try to have something fun and new for you to read.

Have a lovely week y'all! ♥

Foodie Post: Orange Autumn ♥

Heya lovelies!

How are you all today? ♥

I've been having nice but challenging start for the school week, so today I treated myself to a nice little drink. This post is my entry for Lover.ly Autumn Cocktail Challenge, and even though I say so myself, it came out pretty nicely. Lover.ly is a wedding planning website, which offers lots of inspiration if you, like me, are a pride to be and want to get ideas for your wedding. As far as I have explored the site, there is lots of pretty pictures and everything you might need for your wedding planning. Check out their planning site to see for yourself!

But, without further ado, here you can check out the cocktail:

This one is a sort of a modification from Martini Rocks Rosso, and I call it Orange Autumn. I could imagine this would be a nice one to enjoy with a friend, or you could also toast with it in a party or so.

You'll need:

Martini Rosso
Orange juice
(orange flavored) sparkling water
Ice
Orange
Redcurrants

Fill the glass with ice.

Add in 1 part Martini Rosso (I used 4 cl, because I had a big glass). Then, add 2 parts (8 cl) orange juice.

Slice the orange, and add some to the drink. Also, add redcurrants to give some color.

Then, top it with sparkling water, and add decorations if desired.

And you're ready to enjoy your cocktail!

You can experiment quite a lot with this, I guess if you like the taste of Martini, you can always make this with more that. And, if you don't drink alcohol, try replacing the Martini with cranberry juice or some other not too sweet juice. If you try this, one way or another, please let me know how it went!

Have a lovely day you all ♥
