Yesterday's post was about simplicity. Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication, it is said.
So, to show you that Leonardo's words can reffer to fashion, too, I decided to share an outfit that is simple, but still sophisticated.
When it comes to pieces of clothing and accessories, I tend to be attracted to big, bold, extravagant things, but sometimes it's best to remember that simple is way better.
These day I'm applying these words and keep things easy, but in style. 

What about you ? Do you like it simple or extravagant?

Burgundy love

Burgundy love

One of my favorite colors for autumn/winter is burgundy. It looks so great in cold seasons, both in a full look and as a color-accent. 
Here is just a small part of the burgundy pieces that I covet. I assure you, the list is too big to show. 
What do you think?  Is burgundy the winter queen of colors?

something new

Two days ago I went to Sephora. I just wanted to take a look at the Christmas packages. It turns out they have some great offers, so I couldn't walk away empty-handed. No, I had to buy it: the long, pretty lashes set from Clinique.
 It contains the High-lengths mascara (7 ml), a mini cream shaper for eyes(1.1 g) and a mini-size of the All about eyes serum De-puffing eye massage, all in a small cosmetic bag. The price was ok: about 25 Euros, and the products are great. I was looking for a mascara that would make my lashes longer, but wouldn't feel to heavy to wear. I found it! It's great, though seeing the brush at first, I wasn't so convinced. But it really does a great job and it's really to use. I would definitely recommend it.
The eye pencil is also good, soft, so easy to apply, and it stays put for at least 8 hours, at least in my case. 
About the serum I don't have so much to say, because it's a treatment for under-eye bags and I don't really have them, but as far as I can tell, it's cooling and refreshing.
And last, the cosmetic bag. It's not "to die for", it's made of 100% nylon, but at least it's small and fits almost every handbag and has a neon color, so it's easy to see in the chaos of my bag. :)
All in all, I'm more than satisfied with what I got for this price, especially with the mascara, a new crush, and hopefully, a long-lasting love.
So tell me, have you ever tried one of these products? What do you think about them?
Or if not, what good products have you recently discovered?

 A big, bold piece of jewelry always adds class even to the simplest outfit. Next time you feel less inspired, just grab your favorite pair of jeans, a simple t-shirt and put on the boldest and biggest piece of jewelry that you have. Look in the mirror and admire yourself: effortless-chic, baby!

Today it's all about sensuality.  Is this a state of spirit or something physical? 
How and when does a woman feel sensual? What helps to make one feel that way?

I  am more body-conscious and, yes, feel sensual, when I wear sexy lingerie under a simple shirt/t-shirt paired with jeans or when I wear bold lipstick with minimal eye make-up. 

What makes you feel sexy/sensual? I'd like to hear your answers.

P.S. Isn't this picture  so, soo hot? I don't know what is sexier: her attitude or her look. Maybe both plus the background. Yes, that makes the story complete.
