You probably already know I’m a die-hard fan of theBalm palettes. They have great quality, are relatively easy to find here in Brazil and more affordable when compared to higher end brands. Plus, they’re cruelty free and their packaging is always on point. This time I’m reviewing the Smoke Balm Vol. I palette. Keep reading for my opinion and swatches.  (more…)

The Safari Chic trend with Farfetch

This post makes part of a Farfetch campaign in which bloggers involved could win shopping vouchers. All opinions are my own.

After a super stressful month finishing my master’s degree I’m excited to be finally back! This time I teamed up with Farfetch to write a post inspired by their Fashion Blogger’s Summer Content Pack. Something I love from Farfetch is their global aproach to fashion: you can buy from top brands and new designers from all over the world in one place.

My pick? The Safari Chic trend started by Valentino’s Africa Collection, that mixed the maison’s iconic Roman silhouette with beads, feather and tribal prints in a beautiful ode to the continent that never stops inspiring fashion.

Versace’s new sexy

VERSACE-FALL-winter-2016-collection

A yellow bodycon mini dress with cutted-out triangles of Versace’s 2010 Spring made me fall in love with fashion. But honestly, through the years I lost interest in the brand: it all felt oversexualized and repetitive.

But times have changed and Versace has proved to know what a girl wants: to dress for herself. This fall collection shows how the brand has succesfully evolved to keep relevance while manteinaing its DNA intact.

Clean, more contemporary shapes (even boxy and oversized!) were all over the runway and cut-out and mini silhouettes are now sophisticated. They’re wearable withouth losing the impact and boldness that caracterizes the brand. (more…)
