Wednesdays Wishlist - Pre-fall

Wednesdays Wishlist - Pre-fall
Étoile Isabel Marant hat, Zara shirt and backpack, Acne Studios boots, Alexander Wang jeans, Larsson & Jennings watch and Ray-Ban sunglasses

It is that time now where are the pre-fall / fall items start rolling into the shops and I can't help myself to see what's out there and to dream about items to add to my wardrobe. I have always wanted to get one of these hats and Étoile Isabel Marant always makes a nice one but it's one of those pieces that I'm not sure if it would actually look nice on me. You know, it's kind of one of those ugly yet super cool stylish pieces...so I don't know, but either way I want it.

Also I have been thinking that I need a nice new backpack because I tend to take lots of stuff with me in my bag and my shoulders hurt and also I want to be able to bring my camera with me more often so I have been thinking I need a backpack so that I am friendlier to my body and so I am able to bring with me all the stuff I want too. I just saw this one from Zara and I really like it. It is basic, affordable and still that minimal style that I would want in a backpack so I think I have to go into the store to check it out in person.

What I love about all these pieces is that they are classic and items that you can wear for years to come. Trendy but still minimal and classic enough so that you can get lots of use out of them. I have wanted the jensen boots since the beginning and they are still #1 on the list of items I want, as well as some Ray-Bans, but I am happy to say that I finally ordered myself these ones and I am so happy and can not wait to receive them.

I want to take a few minutes to discuss these pants. I bought these pants last summer before my Europe trip and wore them while in Mont Saint Michel. But since then, never wore them. For some reason I was having a hard time styling them...but I finally figured it out and now I can't stop wearing them.

So now let me tell you why this is a summer staple, why you need it in your wardrobe now and how to wear it.

This is a summer staple piece because linen is a perfect material for summer, it is light weight, airy and feels great on the skin. Just the look of linen says summer. Also not everyday of summer are you wanting to wear shorts, you need alternatives to just denim shorts and these are the perfect solution.

This is why you need them in your wardrobe now, they are perfect to wear if you want to cover up your legs, or it is slightly cooler out and first and foremost....They are the most comfiest thing you can put on your body. Seriously I feel SO comfortable yet stylish when I put these on. It is a statement as well as a basic. You are going to look effortlessly flawless when you have these babies on.

Now on styling them. As I mentioned, when I first got them I had a hard time styling them and figuring out what to wear, but it's because I was trying them with the wrong type of top. My suggestion is to wear them with oversized tops, like the one I am wearing above. This is the perfect top to wear with this piece. One the silhouette matches the pants and looks great but also, I might add that because these linen pants are white and the material is light, these are a bit see through so wearing a longer top that hides your bum is what you want. But even though this look is a bit oversized and away from your body, it still looks great and like you have this whole summer fashion thing on lock!!!

Please please try out this look, I promise you that you will never want to take it off, it is the most comfortable and fashionable look for summer. 100%


p.s. I have been playing around with my editing. I would love to hear what is your favourite or maybe you like mixing it up. leave me a comment letting me know!! 

Top 5 dream destinations

Monday, 25 July 2016

Let's do another Top 5. I love doing these posts but it can be hard to narrow it down to just 5 especially with this one being destinations and places I want to travel to because I want to travel EVERYWHERE, it's hard to only pick 5 for this. But I picked these 5 because they are places that I have always really wanted to travel to and places that I can take lots of adventures, explore, be active and discover new things...so let's get into it!!

1. Norway - For as long as I can remember I have dreamed of the vast fjords of Norway, wanting to marvel in the beauty that that country has to offer...And of course ever since becoming obsessed with everything Scandinavian it has been at the top of my list for adventure, fashion and everywhere in between.

World of Wanderlust - Costa Rica - Top 5 dream travel destinations

2. Costa Rica - This place has always been on the list but more recently then others it has grew to the top. Ever since trying surfing for the surf time and wanting to explore the world of surf, sun and sand it has been a dream destination to go to. I hope that I can make it there sooner then later.

Tuula Vintage - Japan - Top 5 dream travel destinations

3. Japan - I think Japan is the place that I have dreamt about going to the longest. For as long as I can remember I have had major wanderlust for this place, I think because it would be such a culture shock and yet with the beautiful landscapes, it would feel like home. I want to do it all here, snowboard, explore the cities and discover the heritage. Also I might add that I have met some of the nicest people from Japan, so that is comforting as well.

4. Switzerland - Another gorgeous place I have wanted to explore for such a long time. Everytime I think about this small yet central European country I get goosebumps thinking of the beauty and adventure to find there. I can only imagine that at every turn there is another photo opt, the camera would never leave my hands with mountain hikes and city views to suck me in.

World of Wanderlust - New Zealand - Top 5 dream travel destinations

5. New Zealand - Now this spot could have gone to a great number of places but I wanted to share with one because I crave adventure these days. I crave to do crazy things like bungee jump, skydive, river rafting, you know it and this is the place to do it. While doing all this bucket list worthy things you can enjoy the amazing mountain views and scenery this beautiful country has to offer. Also I don't want to forget that I would also love to visit the hobbit world!!!

So there you have it, my top5 destinations at the moment. It might change but most likely these place will stay up there until I visit them!!! Wanderlust will always fuel me.

This must be the most summery piece I own. When I put it on I just feel so girly, feminine, summery and sexy. I must say I don't wear it often (I wore it here) because I feel it is a little too sexy, I am so scared I am going to be showing a little too much skin (if you know what I mean) because of that front high slit. So I am a bit paranoid when I put it on, but it is beautiful none the less and I still love it and love to wear it. This piece is so fitting for a post I am writing right now...so stay tuned for that and what I mean by that.

Here I wore it for day with simple sandals but you could easily dress it up and wear it with a pair of heels and some jewelry for an sexy evening look.

New in - Beauty edition

Nars liquid gold set, Estée Lauder double wear stay-in-place makeup, Nars orgasm blush (sample) and more samples

Hey guys, it's friday and I normally don't post on fridays because I find that people are busy doing stuff on this day seeing as it is the start to the week. But seeing as I was horrible with blogging this week I thought I would show you my recent beauty purchases that I made from Sephora.

1. Nars liquid gold set - I wanted to try this one because I love a sort of bronzy, gold look for summer and I thought this one would be great because it comes with an illuminator, multiple stick and a gold shimmery lipgloss. So far I like it but I don't know if I am using the products to there full ability. I am not sure if that makes sense, but I am by no means a beauty expert, I should know more seeing as I went to school for Estethics and did make-up but I don't practice what I learned soooo....anyways, I if you have any tips, send them my way, but I do like them!!!

2. Estée Lauder double wear stay-in-place makeup - This is the second time I have purchased this one so I guess you could say that I like it. I works really well, but again, I am probably not using it too it's full potential, like I should probably use a face primer and a setting powder, then it would probably stay perfectly all day but for the most part it stays good. I really like it but I don't use it much in the warmer months as I feel it is a bit heavier so I mostly use it in winter. If I am going to use it then I mix it with my tinted moisturizer to lighten it a bit. But all in all, great product.

3. Nars orgasm blush - So I do a lot of my makeup shopping at Sephora, not in store but online. I like it better because as long as you spend more then $50, it's free shipping and the main reason is because you get SOO much more samples. So this blush I got as a free sample which made me so happy because I have actually been looking at this one for quite some time, I had really wanted to try it and then I got this free sample and it's a good size too, like I am not going to run out of it any time soon. So seriously shop online, so much better. So far I like it but I have not used it enough yet.

4. MORE FREE SAMPLES - Yes, more free samples, this is what I am saying guys, shop online, its better. You can try so many things and then you can find out if you actually like the products first before purchasing a full size. Anyways, the samples I got were, Smashbox Iconic photo finish foundation primer, Maison Margiela replica jazz club, Atelier cologne orange sanguine perfume. I haven't used them yet but I will soon, though I have gotten the orange perfume before and I really like it, that's why I got it again.

Summer is finally here!!!

I am SOOO sorry for being MIA this week. I just have not planned out my time good and just have not been my best. But I am back and hopefully I can learn from my mistakes and be better at managing my time so that I keep on my blog schedule and always have something for you guys. But it can be tough because if I am working lots and don't have that much time then I don't have enough photos or whatever, but I promise I will try and get better. Honestly what I think I need is my have a good friend who is also a blogger so that we can take photos for each other and what not. I am definitely missing someone like that in my life, I feel like it would be so good because they would totally understand the work involved and be on the same page. Also then I would have a friend to do all sorts of blogger things with because I am quite shy and suck at networking so I never put myself out there which is the worst thing you can do being a blogger cause then how will anyone know you!!!! I need to get my sh*t together.

Sorry for that long rant...now a little about the outfit. It has finally felt like summer here (thank goodness) and so I have been able to out on more summery outfits and get some sun on my skin. So I wore this the other day and took pictures with this super cute building. I love cute old building, it's the perfect setting for pictures!!!

p.s. About the shorts, I cut off my old Noul jeans (these ones here) and made them into shorts and I love them, perfect for summer.
