Winter 2020. It’s the season when lots of fashion fanatics show their new outfit matching skills and latest acquisitions on social media. It actually feels like everyone is ready to steal the spotlight on Instagram right now. How can you keep up with them? Continue reading to discover 5 winter trends you need to try this year.

1. Natural Tones

My absolute favourites. I’ve seen more and more bloggers dressed in natural tones from head to toe. If you want to recreate the look, for instance, you can try wearing a sandy-coloured turtle neck, with a beige leather skirt and a cozy neutral trench coat.

You will look like a fashion guru without even trying too hard. There’s a variety of tones waiting for you to try on: from camel browns, dark greens to pearly white. Every single one will probably make you look so stylish and needless to say, Instagramable.

2. Layering

We’re continuing our “5 winter trends” with layering. It takes confidence to try this trend, considering that you will need some fashion skills to succeed creating the perfect look. But, I’ve got you covered, girl!

My top tip: start with thinner materials and then work your way out. After all, layering looks amazing during winter and can also keep you warm.

Go ahead and shoot your shot! Maybe you will surprise yourself with your fashion skills.

3. Yellow Maxi Coats

Brighten up your day by wearing a Yellow Maxi Coat this winter. First of all, a colour as bright as yellow shall boost your confidence immediately.

Second of all, this is a piece you can easily work with. Therefore, you should try it and rock your way to the top.

4. Chain necklaces and hoop earrings

These jewelries combined make the perfect look for this winter.

This season, a chain necklace and a pair of hoop earrings will make your outfit pop. Who said more isn’t chic?

Boost your confidence and embrace your new style. Show everyone how important accessorising is and how well you can handle it.

5. Nude Slouch Boots

The fifth trend on our “5 winter trends” list is THE Nude Slouch Boots. Everyone needs to style a pair at least once this winter. They can make your fit look so stylish and complex. For instance, you can wear them with a white & beige outfit.

If you want to make them stand out, you can wear them with a black dress and even style a winter jacket on top.

All things considered, the trends this winter are specially made to boost your confidence and to make you stand out from the crowd. Therefore, I am glad to announce that I have prepared a giveaway for you over on my Instagram @notagirlygal.

I’m giving you the chance to win a Zara Voucher worth £50 so that you can treat yourself to some gorgeous pieces. 

Yours sincerely,

From antique times, wearing make-up has been an important part of women’s lives. It had its certain evolution, but to this day, make-up still represents a way to show who we are to the world, express ourselves and accessorise our everyday outfits (including our work from home outfits too). Stay until the end to discover my exclusive make-up giveaway – I’m sure you’ll absolutely love it.

Do it for yourself

First of all, we all use make-up for ourselves, to make us feel good on the inside. We even use it when we work from home or when we’re running errands just because of that. Sometimes, it can be just another way to receive that extra appreciation and validation from some people around us. Nevertheless, it gives us the extra boost that we need sometimes, especially on days when we feel down.

When it comes to me, make up gets me ready to action the day and it makes me more confident at times. I use it as an accessory for my daily outfits because it DOES complement any outfit. Have you noticed how a bright red lip gives a black dress a total new meaning? That’s what I love about it.

Also, I believe that every woman is beautiful in her own special way and make-up is there to bring out her best traits. After all, it’s a game of creativity, self-discovery and showing off your personality. Make-up can wake up the rock star, fairy or celebrity inside of you. So, just have fun with it and use it in your unique own way ⚡️

Keep your skin safe

Also, did you know that make-up keeps your skin safe to a certain extent? It is actually saving your skin from being exposed to pollution, smog and many other skin threats. Your foundation and other products create a slight barrier around your skin that prevent all those nasties from entering your skin. Looking pretty while being extra healthy? YES PLEASE!

Allow yourself some time

Moreover, another benefit that I find in it, is that make-up gives you exclusive time with yourself. You can even use it for reflection because you probably deserve more time to focus on YOU, not on others. So, why not make the most out of it?

Stay at home make-up? Get that natural look

It’s not only about drastic and daring looks, make-up enhances your natural appearance. When you work from home for example, you can go for  a lighter and more natural look. It’s that feeling that you’re more confident and ready to action the day, like we discussed earlier.

Appreciate yourself

Last but not least, during your make-up journey you will learn how to appreciate yourself. You can wear it anywhere and make such a wonderful appearance and still make-up will never feel like enough to bring self-love. Therefore, use make-up as your weapon and win your battle of self-loving. You deserve the world and I’m sure of it, you just have to realise it by yourself.

All things considered, this form of art is so appreciated and important to women and men all over the world. Besides its common everyday use, it plays a big role in theatre performances, musicals, films, music videos and many other creative industries. To us, it will always mean expressing ourselves and enhancing our natural looks, so let’s just enjoy it and experiment with it.

How to wear Winter perfume? It might be just a little different than how you would wear a Summer or Spring fragrance. A stronger scent requires you to wear a certain outfit. Plus, it definitely calls for a change in the way that you spray it. Stay until the end to find out how to enter my EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY. Get the chance to win a Calvin Klein Everyone Eau de Toilette. Share it with someone you love or keep it for yourself this Christmas.

Winter perfumes tend to be stronger and have a better longevity than floral fragrances for instance. Also, you might want to consider your outfit choices when you’re wearing them. The scent of fabrics such as wool combine in a very interesting way with the various elements of your perfume.

Choosing fragrances in Winter

As the weather gets colder, your skin will not reach a high temperature. Therefore, considering fragrances which have musk, bergamot, oud or vanilla as top or middle notes might be your best bet. Furthermore, these notes are a few of my favourites as well; gorgeous choices that include them would be: Tom Ford, Kenzo, Givenchy, Chanel or Amouage.

Considering fragrances which have musk, bergamot, oud or vanilla as top or middle notes might be your best bet.

Also, a very interesting observation is that different fabrics have a smell of their own. Have you noticed how wool smells like? Now, pick a wool jumper and spray perfume on your wrist. Do you notice any difference in how the perfume wears?

Where to apply your winter perfume?

First of all, since the scent would be stronger, you’d have to limit yourself to just a few spots on your body when applying your winter perfume. With this in mind, I’ve noticed that my fragrance lasts longer when I spray it on my neck (where my pulse it), wrists and behind my neck. Under no circumstance you should spray perfume on your clothes. Chances are that your garments would get stained (usually a yellow stain) and look greasy. Also, that’s not a great look and you won’t want to throw clothes away.

Winter Perfume – Do’s and Don’ts

Do’s

1. Invest in quality fragrances.

2. Consider your attitude when wearing stronger scents.

3. Wear your perfume in perfect harmony with your look.

Dont’s

1. Don’t spray perfume on your clothes.

2. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new fragrances in winter.

3. Don’t let the perfume wear you.

About the Calvin Klein Everyone GIVEAWAY

As part of my ‘Jet Set Lifestyle’ Giveaway I’m giving away one Calvin Klein Everyone Eau de Toilette to one lucky winner. It might be YOU 👀

All you have to do is enter on my Instagram post here.

About the fragrance.

Citric, pure and clear , the Eau de Toilette Spray CK Everyone by Calvin Klein is a multifaceted ode to pure joie de vivre. The fragrance was explicitly designed as a unisex version and is therefore equally suitable for men and women. The top note of organic orange oil and spicy ginger paves the way for the fascinating heart note. Unique chords of blue tea are combined with fresh aquatic notes. Finally, the base of patchouli, ambergris and cedar wood sets new accents and perfectly rounds off the wonderfully fresh fragrance experience.

Lots of love,

Andrada

Hello there,

I have a super cool surprise for you today!

I might not be super girly in my fashion choices, but when it comes to beauty, hands down, I’m the girliest. I love a good pampering routine, and it’s the perfect time to share mine with you. I teamed with Notino and Korika and we have a super cool giveaway for you – 5 Korean Masks one being a 24k Gold infused one! Just fill in your details and you’re entered!

I call my pamper routine my ritual. I’m able to relax and take 20 minutes of my day for myself and my body. Here are the few things I do to enter my relaxing space.

 Light up my candle

Before anything, l’ll light up a candle that smells fresh or oriental. I love the Fresh Linen one by Yankee Candle for this.

 Cleanse my face

I start off by using a scrub on my face – I make my own scrub with polenta or sugar and the cleansing gel by Ivampur.

Mask time

I’m loving these Korean masks right now by The Korean brand KORIKA. The brand brings together cutting edge Asian technology with effective active ingredients, making them a specialist in this area of cosmetics. My favourite are the SciBeauty and StarBeauty collections. The masks have three a thick sheet and I absolutely love them because my skins feels super hydrated after use. They feel special on my face and the time for beauty routine becomes even more important, as these are not the usual masks we get in drugstores. That’s why, I partnered with Notino to offer you 5 masks from my favourite collections.

More about the Korika Collections

StarBeauty is a premium collection that will be appreciated especially by women who wish to sample rare ingredients, revitalize, and brighten their skin.

NaturBeauty line includes various types of masks whose key benefits are natural extracts and iceberg water.

SciBeauty masks reflect the most recent trends in Asian cosmetics and offer masks not only for the face, but also the hands, legs, and lips to provide complex care.

The winner will be announced on the 29th August 2018 on email. Thank you very much for taking part in this!

The masks were kindly sent to me by Notino. Check out their website as they do amazing deals! And follow them on Instagram too – @notino_co_uk – their feed is perfect!

Best of luck everybody 🙂

Hello and welcome to my blog!

 

I just moved down to London in the beginning of August as I started a new digital marketing job and I’ve been in love with the English city ever since. I am super excited to start blogging here and meet other London bloggers (let’s connect on Instagram as well if you are one – I am building a nice network at the moment). The weather was surprisingly warm for England, so I tried to visit the city as much as my schedule permitted – You can imagine the whole apartment was full of my unopened boxes for a couple of weeks (literally)!

I heard all fab stories about Notting Hill, so I had to tick the place off my list. You will love the colourful or monochrome little houses surrounding the area. I know I did. The vibe of Nothing Hill is super cool and relaxed. If you plan visiting London, you might consider having a well-deserved break here from the city’s hustle and bustle over a strong cup of coffee or red chilled wine.

Obviously, I had to take advantage of the gorgeous areas and take some shots to show you both the area and accessory ideas. The outfit I chose is made up from an autumn trench (getting ready for that autumn fashion – Yas!) and my favourite pair of high heels. I feel this creamy colour is perfect for the summer-autumn transition, when you still want that summer vibe. As the outfit is quite simple, it’s essential to accessorize it! For this occasion, I chose to try different accessories and offer you some options depending on your accessory preferences. I absolutely love the pieces I got from Pilgrim’s Wild Autumn Collection 2017. Let’s get to them, shall we?

If you decide to wear a statement bracelet, then there’s no need for a necklace in my opinion. The look will be much more elegant if you pair it with some cool earrings.

However, if you prefer necklaces over statement bracelets (sometimes I do), a great idea would be to pair a necklace with a nice pair of earrings – one of them should be less noticeable than the other (similar to the next shot).

Alternatively, you can wear a cool necklace and keep the look simple by only drawing the attention on the one accessory.
