Wear whatever you want to wear.




"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself" 

Coco Chanel.





Simple, ¿verdad? Siento decirte que no, no lo es.
Vivimos en una sociedad en que lo importante es encajar más que ser uno mismo. Sinceramente, puedo entender a la gente que sacrifica su propio ser por el poder ser aceptado. Pero no debería ser así.

Cada día somos rechazados por nuestros gustos, preferencias, por ser diferentes. ¿Diferentes de qué? ¿De no seguir estúpidas modas? ¿De expresarnos tal y cómo somos sin importarnos nada? Vivimos en una sociedad que es más tóxica que cualquier bomba o desgracia.

 ¿Por qué la gente tiene tanto miedo a expresarse?  ¿Por qué somos rechazados por aceptar quienes somos? Es gracioso ver cómo las revistas están llenas de "aceptarse a uno mismo" cuando en realidad te están pidiendo que te quieras a ti mismo siempre y cuando sigas unos cánones de belleza estúpidos y sin lógica.

Cada uno es cómo es, con sus más y sus menos. No deberíamos jugzar a la gente por su forma de ser o su forma de vestir. Si realmente no te gusta cómo alguien va vestido, mira al frente y sigue andando, sigue con tu vida y punto. No porque vista de una forma u otra es más o menos persona. Nadie es más que otro por llevar algo de marca o no. El estilo se puede conseguir con muy poco dinero y mucha personalidad, es muy triste que muy poca gente puede llegar a entenderlo.

No se debe juzgar a nadie porque nadie es mejor que nadie. Somos personas distintas de las demás, con una mente y una personalidad distinta. Somos seres únicos, no hay dos personas iguales, ¿por qué estamos empeñados en parecernos a los demás? ¿A vestirnos iguales? ¿A ser iguales?

No hay que tener miedo a ser distinto, a vestir en contra de lo que nos imponen, siempre y cuando seamos nosotros mismos. Si te gusta llevar ciertos colores, hazlo. Si te gusta vestir ciertas prendas, hazlo.

A veces nos olvidamos que algo tan sencillo como ser nosotros mismos, nos hace ser felices. Y, sinceramente, hoy en día hay muy poca felicidad en el mundo. ¿Por qué no empezar con la nuestra propia?

Don't talk with words, talk with clothes.

              FASHION IS A KIND OF ART


Fashion es también una forma de expresar el arte. Nos ayudamos de los colores, formas y diferentes texturas para demostrar nuestros gustos, sentimientos, preferencias... Es por eso que el arte de la moda es muy personal y con él, puedes llegar a conocer mucho de una persona. Pero también puedes descubir mucho sobre ti mismo.

Siempre he sido de llevar tonos oscuros porque no quería complicarme y me parecía lo más básico, pero con los años he aprendido a combinar colores que me favorecen. Los tonos oscuros: negro, marrones oscuros, grises oscuros, etc. me hacen muy pálida, ya que son muy clara de piel, así que me atreví a jugar con otros colores hasta que encontré los que son buenos para mí.

Por ejemplo, los tonos claros, pasteles; desde blancos hasta rosas, pasando por grises y beiges son los que, por mi tono de piel, mejor me quedan, en mi opinión claro. Nada es tan drástico, ya que, siguo llevando negros, pero los combino con blancos o rosas, me gusta demasiado ese tono, pero siempre tonos pasteles, nada drástico.

Considero mi estilo bastante clásico y minimalista. No suelo llevar estampados y si los llevo, son cosas concretas y no muy grandes. Como en mi anterior post expliqué, los básicos son la mejor respuesta a la pregunta ¿Qué me pongo?. Ya sean blusas o camisetas me gusta combinarlos con chinos de distintos colores. Son la mejor opción para primavera-verano y, personalmente, el corte de ese modelo de pantalones es el perfecto para mi figura.

Mi consejo es que pruebes y experimentes, déjate llevar por tu instinto y no tengas miedo a equivocarte. Quizás descubres estilos, formas, colores o texturas nuevas que te gusten y te definan más.

Your imperfections can be your perfections too.

NOTA: Antes de empezar con este post quería avisar de que a partir de ahora mis publicaciones serán en castellano y estarán vinculadas con las publicaciones relacionadas con outfits de mi Instagram.


La perfección no existe. Nuestras imperfecciones nos hace únicos al igual que marcas de nacimientos, cicatrices, etc... La sociedad en la que vivimos nos obliga a ser perfectos, a buscar una perfección que es solo ficticia y que nos hace infelices. 
Mucha gente, al igual que yo, está sumergida en esa tormenta de infelicidad por culpa de la aceptación social. Qué más da si no tienes una talla considerada normal . Siempre y cuando estés saludable y seas feliz cada día cuando te mires al espejo, es suficiente.

Me gusta llevar pantalones estrechos, por no decir que es lo único que me pongo. No son mis favoritos pero me gustan cómo lequedan a mi figura. Tengo muslos anchos pero a partir de mis rodillas, mis piernas se afinan considerablemente, así que este tipo de pantalón me ayuda a verme más alta. ¿Va en contra de las reglas? Supongo que sí pero no voy a cambiar por ello. No soy alta y tengo piernas cortas, así que he de buscar algo con lo que realzar mis piernas para verme más alta. 
No nos podemos regir por unos puntos, o normas de vestimenta según tu tipo de cuerpo si no te favorecen. Esas normas pueden ayudar a orientar a alguien a la hora de vestir pero no son fiables en el 90% de los casos.

Cuando quiero verme bien pero no tengo el humor para mucho estampado, suelo optar por una camiseta básica, sin importar el color, ya que con tejanos puedes combinar todo tipo de colores y texturas. Las camisetas básicas son formales e informales a la vez, depende de los complementos que quieras ponerte, eso depende de cada uno. Me gusta el minimalismo a la hora de vestir, no soy muy fanática de estampados o dibujos en la ropa, así que las básicas son el mejor compañero que uno puede tener en el armario.

My Work Bag



Everyday we go to work and we need our essentials to survive another day.
I am out all day, it means that normally I take a lot with me (I always do, I am not gonna lie) and with a handbag is complicated. I HATE when my bag is too heavy or full.

I had this problem everyday, so I decided to buy a backpack. The question was: Which one?


I was searching one since months ago: it should be functional but cute because I wanted (and want) use it not just to go to work and that was the difficult part. But this week, I, finally, found it and I was (am) too excited that I wanted (want) to share it with all of you.




It was (is) love at first sight. 
Perfect size and enough pockets to keep everything organized. As you can see, it can be carried in two different ways; that means: functional.




The design is precious: flowers and birds in a classic print. I feel me so identificated with it... I just love it. 
Functional and cute; what can a fashionista like me ask for?
Now it is easier going to work and take all my stuff for the whole day with me. I don't feel it too heavy and I can use it everyday (and not just to work ;D)

My Daily Routine

Hello everybody!

Today I will show you how is my daily routine. My skin is extremely dry and sensitive (with redness). That's why I need take care of it every moment.

We can start with mornings:




After breakfast, I wash my face and I use the SKINDRINK Facial Moisturiser from LUSH (picture down below). It hydrates perfectly my skin and is 100% organic. I LOVE IT. 
Then I use the High Definition Primer from NYX. I use it not for a long time ago but I really like how my skin looks like after it.


























Now my skin is ready for make up. I've always used foundation but my  skin, apparently, isn't agree. So... I use just BB Cream, exactly the BB Cream (light skin) from Garnier. I am so happy with it; obsessed.




















I don't use it everyday because I don't think that I really need it but, anyway, it's make up. After the BB Cream comes the Super Stay 24 concealer. I normally use it after a hard day of work or when I didn't sleep well.































When I am ready with this it's time to the Nude Illusion Loose Powder from Catrice. It is transluced powder and I put it under my eyes so my concealer last all day. They are really good.


























Now I use another powder with a little bit of color (my skin is just too white). I have the Super Stay 24 Powder from Maybelline (I think mine is no more on store because I can't find it on the website).
































After the powder I put directly my mascara (for work I don't like use a lot of make up). My daily mascara is also from Maybelline and it called Great Lash . I love it. I think that for everyday it is really good and so pigmented.

































When I'm ready with my make up, I use the Makeup Setting Spray-Matte from NYX. It's the best for my make up and a day with a lot of work. My make up stays perfect all day and I really appreciate it.






























And now I can go to work and do my best looking natural and perfect.






At night...





After a long day my skin is the worst thing ever. It needs hydratation and a lot of love and cares. The Lush products have all the things I search for my skin. They are organic and don't test with animals. So, PERFECT.

First, I remove my make up and then it's time to use the Angels Bare Skin cleanser. It's a solid cleanser. It's easy to use and after that my skin isn't dry. I use it everyday because it's not dangerous for my skin.




















Then I use the Eau Roma Water spray also from Lush. It smells very well and feels so fresh in my skin. Sometimes I don't use the cleanser (it's okay when you have a 'rest' day) but I always use the spray. It's relaxing too.

And finally I use again the SKINDRINK  before I go to sleep. So my skin can take a rest after the day.























And then I am ready to go to sleep. :-)





I hope you enjoyed this post. We read us soon ;-)

Weekend Haul






Hello everybody!
I am back with another post. I've never done a haul before but I wanted to show you the things I bought yesterday.




The first one is the lipstick from MAC 'Velvet Teddy'. I am obssesed with it. You can wear it everyday, everytime. Party, dinner, work... The color is natural and so beautiful. Honestly is one of my favourites lipsticks. ( 20€ )




I really appreciate Lush for it work and the idea of natural products without proving on animals. Their products are really amazing. I use them since not a long time ago but I'm sure I will use them longer. This exactly is the Charity Pott, it's a hand-body cream which smells to Vanilla and I am obssesed with it. My skin has always a lot of problems with beauty products but this one maintains my hands perfectly hidratated. ( 5€ )





I've never bought something from Fossil before but I needed a new clock and they have amazing sales there. I saw this pretty Gold-Rosé clock ( model Stella ) and I fell in love at the moment. And the best thing was the 20% extra sale. I couldn't resist and I get it for only 77,60€.



I have a small ( but perfect ) Michael Kors and the only problem that I have with it is that my 'everyday' wallet is too big for it ( I have just 2 wallets and they have the same size ) and I wanted one only for that handbag. I love the bags from Parfois and I saw this one with the same color that my MK and after thinking about it, I bought it for 14,99€.




Miracles exist and one of them it's called 'Take the day off' and is from Clinique. It's a cleaning balm. It takes your make up off without problems. You have to use your fingertips to massage the balm over your skin. Thanks Clinique for creating magic. ( 30,99€ )




I have to say I wasn't looking for a bag but sales are amazing and the destiny wanted too. There was a 40% extra sale and this bag was there. I couldn't resist and I get my first Valentino handbag ( model Damentas ). I think it is perfect for a dinner, a date with friends, shooping... It is very simply, and the colors are neutrals. You can wear it easily and it is a medium-small size. I love it. ( 38,99€ )








I hope you enjoyed this post. We read us soon ;-)

My favorite Outfit for Winter

Yesterday I went to the cinema to finally watch Star Wars: Rogue One. Here in Germany it's really cold for a Spanich girl so, I had to find the best combination for the cold and not too warm to the cinema.
I didn't want too much complications, so I went for the easy way and took one of my favorite winter Outfits.



It's the most easy Outfit that I have for winter: an old nightshirt from Oysho that I use like a normal shirt, termo-leggings from Forever 21 ( sometimes I wear it with black high waist jeans ) and my winter boots from Deichmann ( a shoes shop that I really love here in Germany ).




My shirt is 3 or 4 years old and, of course, I didn't find it anymore but I have a lot of alternatives which you can use too.



My termo-leggins are from Forever 21, I bought it last year but there aren't anymore so, you can wear the original leggings. For example, this one is from Forever 21 too. I am so happy with them. They are really comfortable and it cost just 4€ .







And the best boots for winter are this babies from Deichmann. My feets are warm all day and they are really cute :-)



Sometimes I mix this Outfit with another shirt or another shoes and details:




Same shirt but another shoes. I wear my leather Vans Old Skool all black. I love them.



They are not the same one but are so similar. 


When I wear the Vans I really love to wear a socks that match with the shirt. My socks have a bow which you can see with the shoes but the important thing is matching the colors.



Mine are from Calzedonia so I tried to find some from the same place. They are the same but without the bow.



And finally, when it's too cold, I wear a beanie. I like wear them. I think they are cute and can get a better Outfit.





I am a freak about cats so, I really need this beanie from Forever 21. This one is from last year and you can't find it anymore ( frustrating ) but you can wear every black beanie that you want.





I like this one too. I think it's really cute and the pom-pom isn't real fur; that's important too.





That's all about my favorite winter Outfit.

I hope you enjoyed this post. We read us soon ;-)
