The perfect Christmas gift!

xmas3 full  

Only last week I got this ah-maaazing gift bag from Estee Lauder and I can honestly say that I have been using these products non stop ever since!
 I was so excited for this gift set, mainly because it contains 8 full sized products, which are 2 lipsticks, 2 eye shadow palettes, their best selling mascara, Sumptuous Extreme, a blush and highlight palette, the amazing Advanced Night Repair serum and the Gentle Eye makeup remover and as a little bonus, a mini Revitalizing Supreme + anti ageing face cream; and of course, that gorgeous burgundy bag! And all for something like $90 ! Considering that only their Double Wear foundation costs $40, you can imagine how much all these products would cost individually! So it was kind of a bargain for me and I knew this set had to be my Christmas present for myself!

The pigmentation of those eyeshadows is quite good and they last 10 hours without creasing or fading away (I've tested them!) one palette contains blue shades and the other one is a bit more warm toned and has purple shades, both matte and shimmer. The lipsticks are also lovely to wear, they are not long lasting matte lipsticks, their formula is quite creamy and moisturizing, but the colors are gorgeous! And what is Christmas without a red lipstick, am I right?

 I, of course, love their luxurious packaging, all gold and shiny, simple and clean.

It makes a great gift set, I mean, how could anyone say no to a free gorgeous bag and loads of makeup products?

As an ending note, I will wish you all a very Merry Christmas and maybe, a luxurious one!

For the love of burgundy

 Can you believe Autumn is almost at it's end and soon Christmas will knock on our doors? It's no secret that I am already feeling festive and that I have a plan on how to decorate this year's Christmas so, I can't wait to start on it!
 It really feels like November outside, the weather is really gloomy, so this is our last chance to color it up a bit, even if it is in darker colors! My favorite colors for Autumn are definitely burgundy and navy blue, I feel they are the perfect match, don't you? It's no use to stay gloomy on the inside too, so there is nothing that some color and a cup of hot chocolate can cure, am I right?

Two outfits, one brand! Styling with C&A

candaday5

For those of you who live in Europe, I am pretty sure you are familiar with the C&A brand, although I hear it's getting quite popular in Asia and South America too!

For any of you who don't know, the brand was born in Netherlands, currently reigning over Central Europe and its targeted customer is mainly the casual-chic woman, but it also presents menswear, kidswear, XL collections and a whole lot of accessories for any age. The prices are affordable for any budget which makes the brand quite a competitor for H&M - at least that is my opinion!

I had the chance to create two outfits, one more casual, which encloses a very fluffy and comfortable sweater and of course, my favorite trend at the moment: embroidered jeans! 


Cred ca cititoarele din Romania au auzit de brandul C&A de o vreme si probabil au si cumparat din magazinele lor mai mult decat o data, pentru ca preturile lor sunt chiar prietenoase iar gama lor de haine cuprinde o varietate de varste, de la nou nascuti pana la cei 80 ani ai bunicii mai mult sau mai putin moderne! Si cred eu ca brandul este un competitor serios pentru H&M -just sayin'!

Am avut ocazia recent sa creez doua tinute pentru ei,  dupa propriul meu gust, aici de fata avem o tinuta casual-chic, am ales un pulover pufos si super comfortabil si o pereche de jeans cu broderie care reprezinta, bineinteles unul din trendurile mele preferate!

As for my second outfit, I chose something a bit more glamorous, a sleek velvet skirt and a loose sweater with silvery thread and of course, sparkly jewelry, all from C&A.
How about this look for a date night? Let me know your thoughts!

Cat despre a doua tinuta, am optat pentru ceva mai elegant, ceva...potrivit pentru o cina in oras, iar pentru mine, avand in vedere ca este totusi sezonul rece, o fusta de catifea si un pulover cu fir stralucitor alcatuiesc tinuta ideala! Plus accesorii cat mai sparkly si gata!

...Ca o nota de incheiere, va anunt ca sambata, 11 noiembrie, la C&A puteti beneficia de 25% reducere din pretul afisat, la toate articolele! Promotia dureaza doar o zi, in toate magazinele C&A din Romania! Nu-i asa ca suna apetisant? 

Haideti la shopping!


P.S. Toate accesoriile (cu exceptia pantofilor si a gentii albe) sunt de la C&A ;)
