Inspired by: Lovely Pepa

November 24, 2014

With the weather getting colder by the day (you can practically smell winter now) it's high time to start bundling up to avoid freezing on the spot whenever you go outside. While I absolutely love my down coat I can't deny the fact that it makes me looks a little like a giant marshmellow. So until the temperatures drop below zero I'm always looking for winter-appropriate looks that are still chic and wearable.

This look below worn by Alexandra from Lovely Pepa would be pretty much perfect and while I rarely wear dresses I'd be tempted to give this outfit a try. :)

What are you wearing when the weather gets cold? Have a great Monday!

Must watch - The Newsroom

November 11, 2014

For me winter time is TV show time. Every now and then I really like to grab a cup of hot tea and a blanket and place myself in front of the TV for about an hour. While there are many great TV shows out there, there’s one that I’ve discovered only recently and yet, I’m absolutely crazy about it.
The catch… this show actually makes you feel smarter after watching it, instead of the opposite. ;)
Ever heard of The Newsroom? It’s a show written by Aaron Sorkin and unfortunately it will only have 3 seasons. The third premiered just yesterday. So even if you didn’t know it until yet, it’s easy getting into it, since you don’t have two binge watch twenty seasons…

So here’s roughly what it’s about: (Source HBO)
From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball,  comes The Newsroom,  a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.
One of the reviews after the first two seasons:
In a world riddled with ridiculous, senseless, mind-numbing shows, The Newsroom is a breath of fresh air.

Even if you don’t usually go for this kind of show, promise me you’ll watch the first episode and I guarantee you, you’ll be hooked. :) You can watch the promo for season 3 here.

Beauty Favorite - Bobbi Brown BB Cream

November 10, 2014

Hello there! I hope you had a nice weekend! Despite the rather ghastly weather (it was raining cats and dogs on Saturday!) mine has been pretty good. :)

I had to pick up a refill for my Bobbi Brown BB cream recently and thought I could tip you about this little gem just in case you didn't know about it before.

Let me preface this by saying that I have not the easiest skin in the world. It's a mix of extremely dry and oily and I'm battling breakouts like I'm seventeen instead of twenty seven, though that has gotten much better recently. Over the last few years I've basically only used foundation (Estée Lauder Double Wear, which I still love) because I found BB creams to provide not enough coverage and usually they either dried out my skin even more or made it shine like crazy.

By coincidence I then stumbled upon this lifesaver by Bobbi Brown. This BB cream provides the best coverage, doesn't dry out my skin and is also oil-free, which is pretty important if you're prone for breakouts. So if you're on the hunt for a new BB cream, try this one!

Have a great day!

Friday Thoughts

November 07, 2014

Hey there and TGIF! I can't believe this week is already over again. I feel like I just got up Monday morning to battle the first day on the new job. Despite Thursday's post I can say I had a really good week. Everything at work went fine so far, I met up with some girlfriends for dinner on Tuesday, and listened to Christmas songs on the radio last night and this morning! Yes I'm starting Christmas time a little early... don't hate! ;) To end this week on a high note I'm excited to celebrate the birthday of one of my oldest friends tonight with her and her family, whom I haven't in months! So all in all it's been a really good week and I'm grateful for that. :)

I wish you a tremendously awesome weekend! Do you have any fun plans?
