How was your weekend?
Mine was great, got to chill out enough - though I'm sure I'll catch a nice virus sooner or later - and met a few amazing new people, too.
Also, I learned how to make ombre nails, and got an early Christmas (or holiday season) gift from my fiancé.
Before I go on showing you my outfit, there's a couple of things I wanna mention.
Firstly, here's a newest recipe I'll share with you: Bruschetta with Prosciutto. One of my absolute favourites when it comes to snacks. And it looks something like this:
Then, the other thing. We all know how last Thursday, the Versace/H&M collaboration items hit the stores and people went all crazy, right?
Well, I never was too charmed about the whole collection as I feel it's one of those silly campaigns H&M uses to build a high fashion profile for itself. (Not that I don't like H&M, it's just that it's an open brand for everyone out there, as it's so affortable. Not a expensive one just for the rich people.) Then I saw this post from the blog A Brit Greek (if you haven't read it, do so now! I mean the blog and especially the post), and since then felt proud of myself for not getting anything from the collection.
Not that I'll judge Anyone who's purchased any of those items. It's not your fault. They're pretty cool patterns, after all.But please darlings, read the post above. Just so you know what' going on behind the scenes. Not that I mean to hurt anyone's feelings, I'd probably buy a Versace myself if I got the right chance. this just wasn't one of them.
I feel it's over-priced H&M, even though it might be designed by Versace. Maybe my head is just plain wrong about.
Anyways, moving on to lighter subject.
Meaning, let's see my Outfit of the Day
Top: H&M, Snake skin look leggings (or jeans): Tiger of Sweden, Boots: Kenkä Cosmos, Necklace (stars): Accessorize, Bracelet: GinaTricot.
Wanted a simple little outfit for today, as the only thing to do was go to look for some clothes for my man. Had a bit un eventful day, but, it was Sunday, so...
Yesterday (Saturday) went by looking at tv shows (Gossip Girl, Glee, Vampire Diaries, Desperate Housewives...) and then in the evening we went to spa, where we accidentally met my fiancé's colleague and his girlfriend (amazing people, I must say) ;)
Oh, wanted to put on a small close-up of my make-up:
I'm very eager to post some make-up tutorial here, but as I want it also to be useful to you all, I'm asking you:
What make-up tutorial would you want to see here?
All suggestions will be considered, and if possible, done for you (in some period of time).
One thing I found useful tutorial for, was ombre nails. I saw them in the blog Haute Couture, written by the lovely young Grace (I love your style, gorgeous!), in this post, and thought I'd try my version of them.
Manicure of the Day
French manicure meets ombre. Or something as twisted.
Mavala, shade 34, Nicosia. One of my favourite nude nail polishes.
IsaDora Wonder Nail, shade 651, Silver Sparkles (yes, I'm using it again. I just love it so, so much).
The top coat I'm using right now, Depend Quick & Shine Top Coat. Cheap and working.
What do you think about the nails? Personally I'm liking them pretty much. Not as colourful as most of my nail art, but as great anyways.
Today, as mentioned, we went shopping a bit. I bought some great hair stuff and mandatory magazines, which I'll talk about when I've actually learned something about them. ;)
What I'll leave you now with, is a picture of the most delicious cake I've eaten for a while:
Blood Orange Cake. Yummy! I so wish I had that recipe.
But anyways, I'm off to bed now.
Have a fabulous week everyone!
Blog ya later,
