NAVY // GOLD

I've been meaning to show you my latest H&M purchase for a while now. It's kind of weird as for the longest time I felt like I had no practical bags for Uni and now all of a sudden I got 2 new ones! I must admit that this bag was a spontaneous purchase that I made along with the rest of my H&M Home order, which included laundry bags, boxes for my wardrobe and other such things. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to add it to my basket - it just looks so much different to the typical H&M bags, which I'm not usually a fan of. The best, the VERY BEST thing about this bag is that it was reduced to just £20 which is very little for a practical every day bag! The bag is one of their online exclusives, so you won't see it in the actual stores but just in case you're interested, it's still here! :)
I will show you the full outfit post with this bag tomorrow, I'm just way too sleepy right now but I'm glad I didn't skip blogging today! By the way, I'm back home in Luxembourg :)) Goodnight! ♥

AxParty

Hey guys! As you might know, last week I attended the AX Paris blogger party at Proud Cabaret in London. It was an amazing night and I can sincerely say that it was my most favorite blogger party of all time. Just so you know, I will do a second part for this post, featuring photobooth photos, the dresses that I got, as well as photos from the official photographer. Me, Kaori and Amy arrived at Proud Cabaret early, as we were asked to be the 3 blogger models who would participate in their fashion show. We all got our make-up done by the amazing Jilly Peel - I never wear too much make-up, simply because I am lazy and don't really know much about it, but she did an amazing job on us! After having had our make-up done and after eating lots of candy from the candy machine (how amazing?!?!?!), we roamed around amongst the guests and enjoyed the party before the catwalk show. As the evening progressed, there were several perfomances, all true to the cabaret theme. If you are interested in seeing an amazing burlesque performance, make sure you check out my instagram! I got to meet many amazing bloggers, one of them being Kavita, whose blog I've been reading for years. She was such a sweetheart! Me and Amy also managed to snap some photos (as well as go to the photobooth with) Jade, the Cycle 7 winner of Britain's and Ireland's Next Top Model - it was amazing meeting her in real life, she was my favorite girl in her cycle and I was hoping for her to win from the very start. She is one of the main models for AX Paris and she opened the show where me and the girls walked! I don't actually have too many photos from the catwalk show - only the first one where I'm just finishing my walk and the second one which I've borrowed from Kitsch n Sync. Weirdly enough, I wasn't actually nervous at any point - I expected the nerves to kick in just before the show but somehow I took it all in a very relaxed manner. I'm hoping to show you more photos of the show, as well with the other dresses, perhaps when the official photos are released :) By the way, it was a pleasure to meet Jess, AX Paris' resident model - she is super gorgeous and such a fun girl! This photo I borrowed from AX Paris instagram - it was taken just after the show! An amazing goodie bag! I must say that AX Paris are definitely establishing a reputation for throwing the best and most original blogger parties, I'm feeling so honored to be working with this brand and to have been a part of both events so far, I can't wait to see what the future holds!

RADIATOR PR SHOWROOM


On my second day in London I headed down to Shoreditch, Blackall Studios (same event place as Vouchercodes event was held!!) for the Radiator PR press day and, boy, was I impressed! The first brand I was drawn to was Lulu Guinness - one I'm sure most of you have heard of. Their SS14 collection is so girly and nice, the lips logo features in almost every design. The girly girl that I am, my favorite one was the bright pink watch in the second photo, I need that in my life!

The newest Eastpak bags were shown too - everything from leather travel bags to backpacks. Having lived in Luxembourg, I do immediately think of Primary School when I hear the word Eastpak, as EVERYONE including me had an Eastpak backback, that was the cool thing to have in Luxembourg, haha. It was great to see their more fashionable and feminine items, which changed my perception of the brand, I would definitely use their bags now that I'm 20! 
The Jewellery Channel had a big space as well, showcasing amazing pieces, all ranging from VERY low to VERY high prices. My personal favorites were the two watches above, I thought it was a really interesting piece as it is a watch and a unique piece of jewellery in one. 
Tallulah is a relatively new brand at Radiator PR, but was definitely my favorite clothing brand at the showroom - they had really fun, quirky pieces such as casual t-shirts/sweatshirts with feminine mesh inserts and the likes. I was a big fan of the BOSS crop sweatshirt above! 
Daines & Hathaway were showcasing their new, PINK collection - full of leather accessories including wallets, clutches, phone cases, even shot glasses (as in the photo above).
Yet another amazing watch selection, this time by Toywatch. My faves were the skeleton pieces above, I think it's a very creative approach and looks very different. I absolutely love the white one in the middle! 
The last brand I'd like to show you is Candie's - a range of perfumes, shower gels, and cosmetics. The face of their new campaign is Carly Rae Jepsen and the images, as well as the products are very fun and girly. I forgot to mention the BEST part - they will be stocked exclusively at Primark! ;-)

THE CLASSIC TRENCH


YES, I really should stop having outfit shoots JUST before it gets dark and YES, it is way too cold to wear this outfit right now. Let's just say, I decided to play dress-up, as I was eager to show you my newest items, plus it's clearly the time to start planning your spring outfits, right? Right?

I might have mentioned that I've been on the hunt for the perfect black bag that is pretty, yet practical for Uni, and as you might have guessed the hunt is finally over! I found this bag in Zara for 40 GBP which I thought was a very decent price. I've also been meaning to show you this Chicwish trench coat, which is unfortunately slightly wrinkled in the photos but I assure you that will soon be fixed. While in London a few days ago, I went to Chelsea for some shopping and picked up a few goodies at Brandy Melville, one of them being this incredibly soft and cozy sweater. I can't even find the right words to describe how perfect it is! It's a very thin material so it does not help much when it's cold, however it is the softest material I've ever felt. It reminds me of The Powerpuff Girls, do you remember the episode where Buttercup (the green one) had her "blanket" that she never ever let go of? I kinda feel like this sweater will be my "blanket", ha. Now let's get onto the scrunchie, definitely a love/hate item in the fashion world. I never really had any sort of opinion on scrunchies until the issue was addressed in Sex And The City where Carrie gets mad at her boyfriend for mentioning a scrunchie in his novel - that's when I thought that maaaaaybe a scrunchie is not the coolest thing in the world.. However, recently I've been wearing my hair up a LOT for Uni and I'm always searching for hairbands that don't leave kinks in your hair (thanks to Amy for teaching me this word haha!), and when I saw this black and white one in Brandy Melville, I was sold. It's super soft and nice on your hair, plus I do love how it looks. Talk to you later!

MLPR PRESS DAY

Loving the blue SS14 Fiorelli bags with Kaori! As well as showing us a FULL room full of Fiorelli bags at the amazing Westbury Hotel in London, we were also introduced to their new jewelry range. The prices of Fiorelli items are very affordable, which is a great thing for students, however at the same time they offer quality and a designer-bag look. I'm definitely going to be picking up some of their items next Spring ;-)
Absolutely loving the mix between the tropical print and the sporty sleeve on this top.

Supercute Cruciani bracelets, all cost about 10£

One of my favorite collections at the event - the tribal jewelry from Sweetlime
Black Score's t-shirts and sweatshirts were super eye-catching, basically they take every iconic T-shirt that is out there (think, Celine, Cara Delevingne's face, Hermes, etc) and make a parody out of it, such as the one above, originally Boy London to Toy London, with a Buzz Lightyear. This bag is one of the most stunning and precious bags I've seen in my LIFE, it was so beautiful but unfortunately completely out of my budget.
Amazing Hannah Warner pieces
Amazing embellished occasion dresses at Suzannah
I got my hair done by the awesome Parisian hairdressers from Massato, plus they gave me some hair goodies, yay!

**If you are interested in some of the items where I did not mention a brand, check back in 1-2 days!

CHASE PR SHOWROOM

Hey ! I got back from London on Thursday night however it took me a while to get over the massive tiredness and aching feet, so I couldn't post anything until now. While in London I went to a few showrooms/events, so I'll show you my experience at each one with a separate post - I really have a LOT to show you! The first showroom I went to was Chase PR, and I took photos of the things that caught my eye the most (sorry for the bad quality, the lighting wasn't the best).

As soon as I arrived to the showroom, my eyes were peeled to their massive shoe collection, in particular, the SS14 French Connection shoes - my god, they were gorgeous! There were lots of colorful ones, also plenty of wedges and flats however I really liked the classic colors and styles, such as the ones in photos above. Their prices are mostly under 100£ and I have a feeling I will be going to French Connection to find that perfect black pump. While I was busy snapping the photos, suddenly Kaori appeared at the showroom, which was a pleasant surprise as we could go together to the next event later. She tried on these crazy pink heels (will find out the brand name for you later), that were missing the foot part (as you can see in the picture below). 1: My favorite item was definitely this faux fur coat by Red or Dead. It was so fluffy and warm and definitely made me want to get one of my own! 2: I really liked this two-piece by Red or Dead as well - all their pieces were really quirky and different. 3: We were also shown the newest Storm watches and jewelry, I thought this watch was pretty interesting as it has a ring inside, which moves with the watch. 4: Kaori trying on the pink, crazy shoes.
I couldn't help but try this amazing Red or Dead faux fur coat! Do you think I should get something like this?

OH MY LOVE



Can you believe that it was almost pitch black when we took these photos?! Okay, maybe you can. But still, I don't know how I was able to make the images as bright as they are..but then again, who cares? At least I've got the result :-) I was recently contacted by Oh My Love, as they wanted me to style some of their items. It was VERY difficult to choose them, as pretty much everything on that site is absolutely stunning! I'm not even joking, I wanted everything :D In the end I went for this lace cami dress, which worn alone looks like a night gown but when paired together with casual items it can be easily toned down. I immediately knew I would style it with this tartan blazer and my new Urban Outfitters fedora. The blazer in general is very versatile and looks great with jeans too, as I wore today :)) I better go now and figure out which outfits to bring with me to London tomorrow! ♥

MONDAY


Heyhey! I would have loved to make another outfit post today but Mondays and Tuesdays are my busiest days usually, plus at the moment I also need to plan some of the next days where I'll be going to London for blog stuff, exciting but stressful as always! I can't wait to show it on the blog. I'm also looking for fashion placements for next year as well as part-time jobs and PR internships for this year. I am SO eager to find a job/internship! I currently have too much free time outside Uni and would love to be productive and do something useful and interesting.
So yeah, these days have been quite busy. What have you guys been up to? It's so fun when you guys are commenting more lately!
