New year, same me

Sunday, 3 January 2016

Hello, beautiful people! As you can see, this is the first post in 2016. I wasn't active during December and did not write anything about Christmas, presents or so. That was because I took a little break to enjoy every single minute, but now I'm back with a new outfit post for you! 

Love, look good, be patient and follow your dreams. Happy New Year!

Review: Rogue by Rihanna

Saturday, 12 December 2015

Hi! I don't usually do reviews, but I felt like writing one. You know that feeling when you see, taste or smell something really good and suddenly you can't think about anything else? It was exactly what happened to me after smelling Rihanna Rogue EDP.

First of all, I'd like to talk about the bottle and the whole packaging. Can we just take a minute to appreciate it? The design is simple, yet fancy. The bottle is clear and edgy and the liquid has that rose gold tint as well as other parts, except the lid, which has a harsh gray stingray pattern. So, it is different from other celebrity perfumes because they often look extravagant. This one looks more like a designer fragrance. I love those spikes at the bottom and the general look. The box has the same pattern as the lid and rose gold detailing.

Now, the most interesting part. The 
packaging says a lot about the scent which is flirtatious and sweet in a sexy way. Rihanna herself said “I made it for all women, for every mood, because we all want to project our true selves.” Some reviewers find it vulgar, but I would name it as confident and sophisticated. Top notes of this fragrance are lemon blossom and cyclmen, followed by jasmine, rose, plum, suede, musk, woody notes, amber, patchouli and vanilla. To be honest, I think that suede, woody notes, plum, amber and patchouli are the strongest ones here.  

What is surprising about this scent is that it is very intense. I own the 125 ml bottle and keeping in mind that this is more suitable for cold weather and nights, I will probably use it forever (in other words, a year and a half or more), so the fragrance was definitely worth buying.

I hope someone will find my review useful. I know it's Christmas time, but buying "Rogue" for someone as a gift is not a good idea if one didn't ask for it. We all want fragrance to be our signature and this is not for everyone. I got complimented quite a few times during the last week, but the most important part is that I feel like myself when I have this scent on my skin :)

About fur coats

Saturday, 28 November 2015

Hello! Officially winter starts in two days, so I thought it's a great time to start doing two things: preparing for Christmas and wearing fur coats. I'm definitely failing with the first one, but the second is a lot easier. I prefer simple and minimal looks, because a fur coat itself (doesn't matter if it's real or faux) is luxurious, so elaborate layering might be just too much. Many layers underneath simply make it difficult to move and feel comfortable. What is more, I thnik that if the coat covers your thighs, it is better to avoid midi skirts, especially the new look silhouette. Skirts and dresses look the best when they are the same lenght as the coat or shorter. Those are only my tips, but maybe you'll find them useful as well :)
