Haute Couture Week Favourites

Haute couture has always been pure art for me. Looking at all those fairytale creations that take up to a few hundreds of hours to be hand-stitched and those precisely sewn details make it obvious why not everyone can do it. The purpose of collections is to show designers' incredible skills and I dare to say that among all, Karl Lagerfeld remains on the top. Chanel seems to never dissapoint me, whether it's RTW or haute couture collection. Rest your eyes on some of my favourite pieces and don't forget to share yours in the comments.

Real Techniques Brush Set Giveaway!

I've promised a giveaway in my previous post, so here it is! I'll be giving away Real Techniques Limited Edition Duo Fiber Brush Set, which includes two of my favourite brushes. Unfortunatelly the giveaway is for Slovenian citizens only, but I promise I'll make an international one very soon too :)

Kot obljubljeno v včerajšnji objavi, sem za vas pripravila nagradno igro, v kateri bom v sodelovanju z Mojo drogerijo podarila set čopičev. Pri izbiri nagrade sem se odločila za Real Techniques Duo Fiber Brush Set iz omejene kolekcije, ki ga imam tudi sama in sem nad njim več kot navdušena. Prepričana sem, da bo enakega mnenja tudi nagrajenka! :)

Top 5 Makeup Brushes

Everyone has their obsessions. You already now I'm crazy about bags, but when it comes to makeup, I go crazy about brushes. I bet some of you can identify with me. I don't know what is it about them that makes me so excited.. maybe it's because of the miracles they make. I mean, does anyone even still uses their hands to apply foundation? I don't think so. Brushes make wonders and you can never have enough of them. Period. Over the last couple of years I've tried many and came to a conclusion that these are my top 5 brushes that I use on a daily basis and cannot live without.

How to successfully shop sales

Winter sales are in a full swing and products are seducing us with reduced prices. I know that can be very tempting and make you buy everythiiing, but it's important not to lose your judgment and be blinded by low prices. To avoid ending up with a pile of things you don't really need, here is some advice to keep in mind when shopping on sales:

1. Make a plan (and stick to it)
Don't rush into sales, but make a plan. The best way to go shopping on sales is in the morning during the week, when there's not a lot of people. Make sure you're in a good mood and dress properly. If you're buying a skirt that will go with the blouse you already have, don't forget to take it with you. Freshly washed hair and nice makeup also helps - you'll feel good and most likely find the item you're looking for. Also write down all the things you need and even more important - stick to it!

2. Think before you buy
We can easily get carried away by seeing all those things with reduced prices. Then we usually end up buying stuff we don't need at all. So remember to only buy things that are written on your list and that you really need. I have this "Love at the first sight" rule which basically means that if I don't fall in love with specific item the minute I try it on, I don't buy it.

Best and Worst of the 2015 Golden Globes

The award season has officially started, which means a lot of hard work for fashion police. I've reviewed all the red carpet looks from the Golden Globes and came to a (sad) conclusion that unfortunatelly there weren't any huge fails this time. I guess big competition among actresses made them step up their outfit game. It's not just about receiving the golden globe anymore, it's about getting the "best dressed" award.

I was so excited to see (well, not really in person, but photos count, right?) actresses from some of my (many) favourite TV shows! Let's take a look at the outfits of the Girls cast.
