I am in full preparation mood for my birthday over here. My present from me for me has arrived today and I am going to share more of it on Wednesday. Hopefully I´ll get my post up on Wednesday. We are planning to have coffee at Starbucks and then head to Sephora and eat delicious greek food for dinner.
But for today´s fashion post I wanted to share this look I have worn a day before Christmas but technically it works for all of Winter time. A cute sweater dress paired with thin black leggings is great for Winter time and works on so many levels.
To add some print and color I got this super cute leopard print scarf and beanie set which I have loved. It pairs great with so many different pieces and color combos. Leopard print totally adds the focus on this look.
navy blue hasn´t been a Winter color of mine at all but I started to incorporate it a little more this year and I am really loving it. Black, brown and grey are my most used dark Winter colors so it is nice to have another base color for Winter.
To make this look extra cozy I added this super cute teddy vest to the look. Also I am sorry if you are seeing these boots a lot in my recent blog posts but I just love them and they are the perfect color and I get so much use out of them I never thought of, it is incredible.
We had another huge Ikea run today and got all the things I wanted to get ready before baby. I think meanwhile I am now in full nesting mode and I am organizing/decluttering another corner of my house everyday so I can focus on the baby when it is here.
Wishing you a nice weekend so far. We don´t have any plans except having Indian food tomorrow and watching Zumbo´s Just Desserts today.
since I haven´t done much to review the year of 2019 I decided to at least share my favorite in 2019 discovered beauty tools with you. They all have helped me tremendously in getting ready everyday and overall made life a lot easier.
So I am starting right away.
Top 6 Beauty Tools of 2019
One Step Hair Dryer Brush // I have seen the Revlon one step hair dryer brushes all over and everybody who was testing it was quite satisfied so I finally wanted to order one for myself and guess what – they had been sold out everywhere I looked so I went on amazon and found this dupe version of it for a much better price and I love it. I can´t tell if it has the exact same amount of power but it looks very similar and the end result is the same. I always hated to dry my hair after washing it and went to bed with wet hair an uncountable amount of times which ended in really bad hair or still wet hair the next morning. So this tool definitely makes my live easier and it does it quick too.
Mini Fan // This helped a lot to dry my setting spray after doing my make-up and I use it every time. Saves a lot of time.
Remington Hot Rollers // I had these for a few years not but started using them again a lot this year. They are the easiest way to get a lot of volume into your hair that stays the day.
T3 Curling Wand // I actually got this for Christmas last year and it has been my most used tool ever since. I curl my hair once a week and my curls last about 4 to 5 days. The wand has three different barells but I only used the middle one so far. This product is pricey but in my opinion it is totally worth it.
LED Make-Up Mirror // Great tool if you are doing your make-up in dark spaces or in the early mornings were there is no light at all. I have a very similar version to this mirror and use it daily. It runs on batteries but they last pretty long. It has a touch screen and also comes with an extra mini mirror with a 10 times enlargement.
Jade Roller // A jade roller is the perfect tool if you want to depuff your eyes in the morning and also get the eye cream in really deep. If you store it in your fridge it is even better for your under eye area as the cold helps with the swelling and shrinking your pores. They are super affordable but of course you can also get the crystal versions for a lot more money. They look cute but I honestly doubt that they have a different effect.
Most of the pieces are off from amazon which means they are in for prime shipping. I am going to do another tops from 19 post regarding my personal best beauty products for you.
the Bachelor started today so please forgive me any misspellings as I am slightly distracted.
My ultimate pair of cozy and warm shoes for Winter are UGG boots. I have always had a pair and got a new one for Christmas. The style is called Bailey and I think it is adorable with the two bows on the backside.
The look I am wearing above is super cozy and warm, great for the colder winter days to run errands or just for staying home.
None of the pieces are maternity. I can still wear normal clothes for most of the pieces (I only got jeans and leggings in the maternity version) so that´s a win. Most of the knitted pieces are super stretchy and work just fine. Hopefully this stays like this cause I still have a little over two months left.
