Hello beautiful girls,

Whether you’re going on holiday or not, today I’m going to show you how to transform in a golden Goddess. We’re going to bring the tropical island vibes right to our golden look. Aloha

Creating a golden look can only turn out the way you want it to if you have the right pigmented products. I feel it’s similar to an orange eye look where you’re basically depending on the right shade of orange. Before we go into creating the look, let’s discuss about the products I’ve used and absolutely loved because it’s super important to get this step right since the first time.

Eyes

For my eyes I have used this beautiful The City Mini Palette in Rooftop Bronzes by Maybelline.  The shades in this are stunning and so pigmented. I applied the base shade all over my lid (orange gold shade below) with a brush (on top of an eye pencil) and used my finger to apply the whiter shade on the corner of my lid.

Next, I did a smokey eye using the brown colour at the bottom and made sure I blend it very well with the other colours but also with my skin. As expected, the colour is more striking when applied with your fingers, so I totally recommend doing that for the highlights / white shades. You can watch my tutorial on IGTV after you have a look at the products discussed on here.

Summer Make-Up | Golden Goddess Look Notino NotAGirlyGal.pngFor this Golden Goddess look, I had to use a Golden eye pencil. This one is the Professional Make-up Retractable Pencil by NYX in the shade Gold. It’s really creamy and sticks to the skin. For the price on Notino is a total steal! I not only applied it on the water line, but also as a base for my eyeshadow and my make-up lasted up to 6 hours.

I’m a massive fan of cat eyes, so I try to sneak a wing in whenever the look allows for it. The only time that I won’t have it on is when I go for a black smokey eye. In this tutorial, I’m using my favourite liquid eyeliner by Guerlain. It’s totally worth the money because if you’re like me and have oily skin, you want your eyeliner to be high quality and not smudge. I’ve tried loads of liners before and this one is my go to now. It never ever goes wrong and the brush is just perfect for creating lines of different sizes. So at the end, when the eyeshadow is set, just draw your line as shown here to complete the look.

As always I’m wearing my trusted Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation because I find it to be the best for my oily skin type. Not to mention how beautiful the blush applies on top of it. When it comes to contouring, I have used this Max Factor Creme Bronzer and it gave my makeup that beautiful golden tone. It is here where you’re going to start seeing the look finally coming together. You can check out my IGTV video later to see how I actually applied these products.

For my blush and highlighter, I went for this gorgeous Makeup Revolution Mini Chocolate palette. It gave my look a beautiful rose gold twist which I really like.

Oh hi there. I’m not really wearing lipsticks, but I picked a really beautiful and creamy one for this specific makeup look. This Clinique Pop Lipstick in Nude Pop from Notino will also prime your lips and give you a really nice pink colour. It really feels like it’s moisturising the lips, so it’s an amazing win for me (not a fan of drying matt lipsticks in general).

How do you feel about your wardrobe right now? I feel that when it comes to my style I’m always looking for ways to upgrade it or make it look fresh without buying completely new outfits (from a sustainability point of view, but also because I live in London and space is quite limited). Now that you know what the inspiration behind this article is, let’s jump into finding out my favourite simple ways to give your wardrobe a fresh look!

1. Wear hair accessories

Yes to hair accessories – probably the only trend that I’m really into at the moment. Pearl clips, marble clips or hair bands, I’m pretty much into anything that can add something to my outfit. Have a think about how you’re going to mix the accessories with your outfits, because they can totally change your overall appearance. Have fun with it!

2. Mix statement tops with high waisted jeans

Absolutely love to do this when I get the chance. Wear a ruffle or big sleeved top with some high waisted jeans and you’re going to take your outfit from boring to impressive. I like how it sits at the border of elegant and casual – making it suitable for many occasions, including cocktail parties, garden birthday parties or even on your holidays. This mix is such a simple way to upgrade your wardrobe and never run out of styles. Enjoy wearing this fun look.

3. Start wearing low heels

I only started wearing heels about a month ago and now we’re rarely apart. They add that wow factor to my outfits and I absolutely love that. It’s strange because I’m like a kid who just discovered chocolate. No, I won’t have a go at eating my shoes, although I love them just as much as I love chocolate. Start wearing low heels and you’ll feel how confident you’re becoming. Confident in yourself and in your own style. Do I need to say that they go with almost anything?

4. Wear statement earrings

Whoop whoop 🙌 statement earrings are such a wonder. I can wear them for limited time only because I’m allergic to nickel. But, I make sure I’ll enjoy them and get a nice snap while at it. Have you noticed how an outfit can change when you wear bold earrings? I definitely see a big change when I’m wearing bold accessories. It’s really the simplest way to upgrade your wardrobe.

5. Start wearing your belts

The difference belts can make in an outfit. Such a massive one that I was raving about them in this article too. I’m sure you own a belt or two, but never get round wearing them. Choose an outfit that you like from your closet and put a belt around it. You’re going to notice that the outfit will look absolutely stunning.  I prefer a medium sized belt with a visible buckle because that will make the most impact on your outfit. Who thought that a belt can upgrade your wardrobe in one second? Quick win! Tag me on Instagram at @notagirlygal for me to check out your take on belts.

I’m so happy to share my tips with you! It’s your time to experience new styles this summer and  just have fun with it. There are no rules in fashion, besides the most basic ones, so reinvent yourself everyday. What’s your favourite store this season?

Until next time,

Hello there summer lovers,

Have you started packing for your holiday yet, or are you at the booking stage now? Either way, don’t forget to throw in your bag an absolute gem of an outfit that will make you feel incredible and look like you’re ready to have the best time in the burning sun. You’re in the perfect place because I’m now sharing one Summer outfit that you need to wear on next holiday.

What do you think about ruffles in general? But what about ruffles on holiday? I have to say, I’m a huge huge believer in ruffles and statement blouses. They can make up an outfit in seconds. I absolutely adore wearing special items and I can’t believe how quickly I can create new styles using blouses in different textures and fabrics.

For this look, I went for a white top that goes so well with high waist jeans. The top shows cleavage without showing too much. You can go for different colours or keep it simple in white. Find my top here. The jeans I’m wearing are actually my mother’s (authentic mum’s jeans here) that a designer friend of mine helped me rip. I’m absolutely positive that you can find a pair in your mother’s wardrobe or find a really cool pair in a vintage boutique.

Don’t forget about wearing accessories – it’s a go hard or go homie, know what I mean?

I went for a beautiful pair of earrings that my friend Adriana kindly gifted me. They’re just making the whole look more interesting, find similar here. You can easily create different summer outfits for your holiday if you have the right accessories to hand. Go through your jewellery chest now and pick at least three pairs of earrings, two bracelets and some rings. You’ll then lay your accessories and outfits on your bed and start playing mix & match. Fun guaranteed.

To complete the outfit, I choose this gold belt which I pretty much wear with everything (even as I’m typing this – with a different outfit because the weather is bad again, surprise surprise!). You can find similar here.

Shoes wise, I began to wear low heeled shoes and I feel amazing. My combat boots no longer stay with me everyday of the year. I picked a special pair of red sandals I found in a shop in Bordeaux called Etam. You can find a similar pair here if you live somewhere else in Europe or the States.

One Summer Outfit You Need to Wear on Your Next Holiday missandrada.jpg

Wear this beautiful outfit on rooftops, at beach parties or anywhere you want to make a statement during your holiday. This outfit makes me think of myself in Spain or Latin America drinking Sangria on the beach watching the sunset with Andrei, especially when worn with a red lipstick on. So, if they’re on your bucket list, you know what to wear on your next holiday.

Don’t forget to subscribe to my email list by clicking on the right hand column and keep up with more summer outfits to come. I’m currently preparing some more beautiful outfits and I can’t wait for you to see them and start wearing them.

With all the holiday talk, I forgot to ask, where are you going on holiday this summer?

Lots of love,

Hello there,

Wearing something cool and comfortable in the same time, during the days that are sightly ‘colder’ than the usually summer days can be a bit difficult. Should you wear a dress? Then, you’ll probably be cold. Should you wear flats? Then, you would probably ruin them in case it rains. No more headaches! For those days, I created, what I like to call ‘the autumn outfit for summer’.

miss andrada how to wear a bold outfit 2

As you can see, this is not an autumn outfit. Otherwise, I would have call it just that.I easily took some elements that are assigned to autumn styling. But, you probably like to wear items that are not just for summer, too  – and you totally should because it will upgrade your cold summer evenings’ outfits.

Upgrading your summer outfits

Let’s take a basic summer outfit: shorts and a simple white top (similar here). You would wear this in summer, right? Now, when a summer day is a bit cold you shouldn’t go for long pants, light jumpers and so on. You can still wear your summer clothes! Just wear them with army boots, hats (find mine here), a leather jacket (find mine on sale here) or even longer boots if they are light. I PROMISE you,  your overall appearance will be so cool and you’ll feel so much better – sometimes long pants on a summer day can be a pain (I’m talking from experience haha).

Adding confidence to your outfit

If you’re not used to mixing items like so and if you need a bit of confidence for it, just remind yourself that you are your own kind of beautiful and you can wear whatever empowers you.

Finding your own style

It might be that hats are not your thing or that leather jackets are not. You can try to come up with replacements for these: big statement earrings – the ones you would normally wear in October, or trenches. Take my tips above and just twist them and adapt them to your own style. Get creative and you’ll start to reinvent your wardrobe.

Enjoyed this article? I would love for you to share it on your favourite social media platform or talk to your friends about it 🙂

What is your fashion way of embracing the colder summer days?

Lots of love,

Hey there 🙋🏻

Do you struggle with clothes in summer?

Do you feel like all of your tops and shorts just look horrible together? Girl, I absolutely can relate to that. I find it quite challenging to put an outfit together when there are 30 degrees outside. Let’s get into what exactly I do to come up with easy, on the go outfits.

Find 5 clothing pieces that you like from your wardrobe

They don’t have to go together. Just choose the ones you best like and represent yourself. Not something you’ve seen online and bought it because you thought it was cool for the moment. Think about something along these lines: timeless and items that are 100% you. I would recommend picking 5 items, so you have a solid starting point. They can be dresses, tops, shorts, skirts, sandals, you name it. So, gather your beloved items only please and get ready to the next stage.

Reinvent the way you wear your clothes

Next, you want to come up with new ways of mixing your clothes, so they look different (to you) than what you’re used to wearing usually. It’s like giving your outfits a second ‘life’. I happened to come up with this idea of making my outfits fresh after I went on a rant about my wardrobe. I’m not the one to stay in the complaining mood for too long, so I prefer coming up with a solution. For example, I really like this yellow dress, but it goes boring wearing it on its own all the time. So, I just added a cool shirt on top. Voila, a new outfit. Don’t stop just at adding new things on top, but be creative: other shoes, maybe change the hairstyle a bit, or even add some statement jewellery or accessories. I always worn this dress with converse and a backpack, so to me this restyling of it, makes me feel like it’s a completely new outfit.

Loving your wardrobe again miss andrada

But.. Andrada, what if I don’t have time…? Well, we’re all busy with our lives, but I truly believe that there are a lot of times when you can actually fit it 30 minutes for yourself. Can’t you? 💋

So, reinventing your wardrobe should be on your top priority list any season and whenever you feel like your wardrobe can be a bit mundane. What is your way of falling back in love with your clothes?

Lots of love,

Hello there my girls,

As you’ve probably seen I have traveled a lot this summer and I mean A LOT. As I write this, I am getting ready for my next getaway to a destination that is close to my heart – the place where I turned 22 last year!

Now, as I’m used to packing and figuring out exactly what I need before I get there, I thought to put together my summer essentials.

1. The Summer Dress – Dresses won my heart this season and I’m loving the idea! Not that I’ve discovered the wheel or anything, but they are so easy to wear.  Why didn’t I get into them earlier?! Because I did not know how to mix them to fit my personality: if I wear a dress, I will wear it with boots or striped sandals. This Embroided Striped Zara Dress is just perfect for me.  I find this style trés chic, but you can choose any dress that makes you feel happy & free.

2.  Colourful Bag – I’ve had this Ralph Lauren bag since last Autumn, but I haven’t brought it out my closet that much. Now, I’m in love with it – even more than I did when I first got it. Strange right? I feel that a colour bag is amazing for summer – it gives me energy and adds on to my mood when I’m not feeling that positive.

3.   Straw Hat – This comes as a necessity rather than just an accessory. You need to wear a hat during these sunny days, especially if you’re travelling to a hot country. Believe me, this H&M Straw Hat saved me from many headaches and heat strokes.

 4.   Sandals – Probably, the best trend of all summers: lace sandals! Girl, these Zara ones are so sexy (you can tie them around your leg)! Needless to say, you’re probably wearing sandals in summer and you’d be better with these low heeled ones if you live in a big city or travel around!

  5.  Thermal Spring Water – One of my must haves for the season is a thermal spring water face spray! I mean, it’s so refreshing and keeps my skin hydrated. Check out this one by La Roche-Posay.

Have you seen my tips on the most Instagramable outfits for this summer?

Until next time,

Hello my favourite fashionistas,

It’s summer time!

Well, in most of parts of the world is – so the perfect time to talk about our favourite summer outfits that you can easily take to your favourite resorts around the world. No matter where you go, a beach resort or a city break adventure, you will find something you can wear and feel amazing in, so keep on reading.

I recently came back from a city break / beach resort getaway in Palermo, Italy and I packed practical outfits that allowed me to fully enjoy my time and feel amazing everyday. It’s a skill that took a long time to master (trust me haha), but I just feel that this time, I didn’t pack stuff that I didn’t wear. I’ll show you my everyday outfits that I used to wear at beach and around the city. Let’s get into it.

City break outfit

I can’t explain how easy it is to move around in this outfit! What I love most about it is the cute aspect of it. The ribbon on my Reserved shoes and the silk material of the River Island top, makes the outfit ‘flow’ nicely on the narrow streets of Palermo while enjoying a cannoli and a glass of Aperol Spritz. No wonder my favourite country is Italy! MY TIP: Wear a hat in case the sun is strong – I swear by a hat as this one was super helpful for keeping any headaches away!

Long pants? African inspired shirt? I’m all about that! To be honest, I’ve worn these Zara pants with a swim suit, a crop top and many other combos throughout my time there. So, I think they can go as my top worn item!
