Necessities или Нещата, които винаги са ми в чантата


1 Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse. Мини разфасовката на това чудо в бутилка ми е винаги в чантата. Използвам гo като крем за ръце, за опитомяване на къдриците и като щит срещу суха кожа.

2 Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick безцветен. Най-чудесното масло за устни. Подхранва. Трае завинаги и има невероятен аромат.

Korres Melissa Soothing Mix for all insect bites. Комарите ме обичат. Аз тях не. И това е моето оръжие срещу ухапвания. Кълна се в него. Това лято изхабих почти цялата опаковка. Мирише на билков сироп за кашлица и оставя лека следа върху кожата. Въпреки че е рол-он, препоръчвам да се намазва с пръсче, а не направо с рол она, за да не се получи зелена лепкава след. И все пак, с две думи – вълшебно е!

4 NYX Butter Lip Gloss в Kрем Брюле. Това е нов в продукт за мен и съм тотално очарована! Този глос не е лепкав, издържа доста дълго време върху устните. А цветът … този цвят е идеалната nude shade за мен. LOVE!

5 Body Shop Moringa Eau de Toilette. Тoва мини парфюмче, мирише на любов и щастие, смесени заедно. Цялата серия на Body Shop с Moringa ми е много любима и винаги имам душгела в банята си. Този парфюм е много освежаващ и приятен за лятото! Купих си го в Лондон и мисля, че в БГ го няма като асортимент.

6 Дъвки. Това е задължително.

7 Флашка. Човек никога не знае, като блогър, когато ще трябва да получи снимки от някъде или нещо, което е свързано със съдържание. Въпреки, че аз съм cloud-базирана в повечето моменти, този малък подарък от Essence е винаги в чантата ми.

8 Химикалче. Защото никога не знаеш кога ще да те срещне фен на блога и ще поиска автограф. Шегувам се. 🙂

9 Кърпички. Трябват си. Задължително в чантата.

10 Essence All About Matt Control Paper Oil. Това са спастителите ми през лятото. Кожата ми става мазна от средата на следобеда и тези малки чудеса отнемат блясъка. Чудни са!

11 Огледалце. Защото винаги трябва да знаете какво се случва.

12 Фибички. Точно като кърпичките. А трябва да са ми в чантата. Никога не знаеш кога ще трябва да направиш чудо с косата си, да прихванеш нещо или да отключиш някоя врата без ключ 🙂

Кои са вашите необходимости? Пробвалили ли сте някои от моите?

1 Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse. In a tiny package this multifunctional oil if great as a hand cream, hair taming potion, and dry skin combater.

2 Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick in colorless. Best, lip butter, ever. It nourishes my lips. Stays on forever and has an amazing scent.

3 Korres Melissa Soothing Mix for all insect bites. Mosquitoes love me. And this is my lightsaber against bug bites. I swear by it. This summer I went though almost the whole thing. Smells like herbal cough syrup, and leaves a bit of residue on the skin. Although it is a roll on, you just have to apply with you finger, so that you don’t get a green sticky spot. Besides that – magical!

4 NYX Butter Lip Gloss in Creme Brulee. This is a new in product for me, and I am in loving it dearly! NYX is not very well known in BG, so I am putting it out there. It is great! Not sticky. Keeps pretty well on the lips. And the color… that color is the perfect nude lip gloss shade!

5 Body Shop Moringa Eau de Toilette. This mini body scent smells like love and happiness, mixed together. The Moringa series of the body shop has been a favourite of mine for years. So this little thing does not leave my bag.

6 Chewing Gum. Because it is a must.

7 Flash drive. You never know, as a blogger, when you will have to get pictures from somewhere or anything that is content-related. Although I am a cloud-based freak, this little branded gift from Essence is a staple in my bag.

8 Pen. Because you never know when you are going to meet a star-struck reader on the street. Just kidding. 🙂

9 Kleenex. A staple. Must have. Can’t go without.

10 Essence All About Matt Oil Control Paper. These are my savers in the summer. My skin gets oily by the mid-afternoon and these little miracle makers take away it’s shine.

11 Mirror. Because you gotta keep in check.

12 Bobby pins. Just like the Kleenex. A must have. You can never have enough bobby pins in your bag.

What are your necessities and faves? Have your tried any of mine?

Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Shirtdress


-It’s a shirt!

-No!

-It’s a dress!

-No!!

-It’s the shirtdress!!

Another staple, that should hang in every self proclaimed fashionista’s closet. The shirtdress is one of the most useful pieces a girl can own. It is summery, work-appropriate, sexy and appropriately accessorized perfect for a night out.

Belt it and you have the perfect curves. The neutral colors allow you to play with colors – add colorful belts, shoes, jewelry. If you so decide, you can wear a little colorful cami, and unbutton a button, for a splash of color. But all you do, keep it simple. Most of the time, less says more.

Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Jersey Dress


Another staple that I am a firm believer in is the jersey dress. Especially for the transitional seasons.  It can be cotton jersey or silk jersey, depending on how sophisticated you want to be, but the jersey gives a sense of comfort and cozyness that no other fabric can provide. The other thing with jersey is that it looks good on almost everyone, it is heavy material and flows very well , that of course can result in wonderful draped or structured dresses.

As it is spring already a jersey dress is the perfect item for both day and night. Just style it with simple jewelry and flats for work and running errands, and then put on some chunky jewelry or belts and other accessories to turn it in a club outfit.  Absolutely love the simplicity in the dresses bellow. As I tend to be a lover of the colour black, my choices are very similar to the Little Black Dress choices, but these are much more comfier and less structured versions.  For summer, get rid of the sleeves and look for something with straps or strapless. Jersey will keep you cool, in both ways 🙂

Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Shoulder Bag


Let’s talk about love.. I mean bags!!

A girl can’t have enough, it is like shoes.. but better, because bags never hurt. And there is one kind of bag that is the IT in the world of the bags -always there, full of everything you can possibly need in your life, and of course, a perfect addition to every outfit- the shoulder bag. It is that little treasure chest that you always carry around, that is full of magic and necessities. The perfect shoulder bag is big enough to fit your life in it, but small enough to be easy to carry around.

I am in love with the idea of two lengths of handles – shorter and longer, so that you can carry it as a messenger bag. It just gives some sort of chill and comfort and yet it is chic.

So here are the suggestions – I die for the marc by marc jacobs bags. 🙂

Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Go-to Tee


A little while back I started a little blog of wardrobe must-haves, that I called Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials. I worte about the perfect bra, the leather jacket and the lbd sometime ago. But after a week of watching What Not To Wear, and a day full of personal shopping for a friends I decided to keep this little blog with stuff that I think is important for every woman’s closet. But, hey, I will completely honest I am not Stacey London, no guru or a fashionista extraordinaire… I am still learning and just sharing experience, so hopefully I will get to improve my own wardrobe 🙂

So let’s talk about the go-to tee, the one (or more) that you have that are perfect for everything! Paired with jeans and flats for the weekend, tucked in a pencil skirt for work, or bling-ed up with jewelery and heels for the night. I have more than a couple such tops that I absolutely love and wear quite often, so I will suggest similar  🙂

The first one is a light gray tee. It is a neutral and goes with everything, but it is not the typical black. It is good for it to have a bit of detail- be it a pocket, a little embellishment or a funky neckline. The detail helps if you just want to throw it on or gives you further help of how to style it and what to pair it with.

The second one is a simple black tee. Typical right 🙂 I spent a great deal of time looking for the perfect just black tee and in the end found one in h&m that is just amazing!  My thing with the black tees is the simpler, the better, because it is like a blank canvas, you can do whatever you want with it, and most of the time a lot can be done.
The only detail that is important is the neckline. I prefer scoopneck and boatneck lines, but a V-neck is definitely classic.  The fabric is also very important, Splendid use amazingly soft cotton fabrics.
