A little splurge

Sadly I don't have much time to go shopping. But during the last month I've been so lucky to have a couple of afternoons to go around shops as I like, and that's what happened.

 
from: Pimkie

 
 
First thing I got, is this dress from Pimkie. I immediately fell in love with it because of the collar (I love collars so much). In fact the dress is really plain, just black, the skirt is so wide, but your eye is captured by the myriad of rhinestones and pearls on the white collar. I wear it with black tights and black ankle boots, such as my beloved Blundstone <3. My dad says that I look like Wednesday Addams but I don't care, I actually like her, she's a kick ass character! =)
 
from: Zara
 
 
Then, at Zara's I got this amazing shirt, it's pretty similar to the dress, I know (except for the glittery collar) but I just couldn't resist it. I think it's super elegant in it's semplicity. I normally wear it with skinny coloured jeans, like burgundy or coral, because it stands out a little bit much and the jeans' color plays down a bit making it less serious.
 
from: street market
 
I also went to a street market (I love them so much) in my city where I bought this dress. It's super cute with the see-through upper part and black polka dots on. I still haven't worn it yet, but I know it will be amazing with a pair of black open toes heels for a night out.
 

both from: Tally Weijl
 
And last but not least, I went to Tally Weijl (one of my favourite shops) where I got these two t-shirts. The first one says "Tomorrow is going to be amazing", it was the first one that I noticed, the message is so positive I instantly adored it. It's actually a bit shorter than a normal length shirt but it's a little longer than a crop top...anyway, it will be perfect for the upcoming summer. The second one says "Chocolat...(and a list of some delicious chocolatey sweets)", very simple but cute....and everybody loves chocolate!
So this is all I got for now. I hope I'll have more time (and more money as well!) to go shopping again! I love it sooooo much.
 
Hope you liked it!

Love, Anna.

Fifty Shades of Grey

I went to the cinema about a couple of weeks ago. Some friends of mine wanted to see "Fifty Shades of Grey", they were so excited about it because they read the book, so I decided to join them and see what was all this rave about. I haven't read the book, but more or less I knew the story of Christian and Anastasia and honestly.......I expected more.
The film was pretty featureless. Jamie Dornan was very sexy indeed, but I found the character of Christian so oppressive and too much of a stalker for my taste, they're not even a couple and he seems to appear everywhere she goes. While Anastasia is so boring (I'm not talking about the actress, I'm talking about the character of Anastasia).
I think the story has nothing original or special: boy meets girl, he's too hot for her but he wants her anyway, she drools over him whenever she sees him and since she's very clumsy we participate to some little funny situations, they kiss, they decide to be friends plus benefits, he is so cold hearted and eventually she falls in love. The only thing that could give the film a bit of spice is the BDSM thing Mr. Grey is into, but they cut a lot of scenes (my friend told me that the book is full of sex moments).
I know how the entire story ends, but I won't spoil it, and I asked my friend to lend me the other two books of the trilogy since I am curious to see how the story develops.
The only thing that I really liked was the soundtrack: simply amazing. There is not one single song that I don't like, and "Love me like you do" by Ellie Goulding which is the main one, is one of my favourites at the moment.

Have you seen this film? What do you think about it?

Have a very nice day!
Kiss, Hugs and Cookies,
Love, Anna.

Nail art

I started doing nail art four years ago by chance (although I think that everything happens for a reason, sometimes you just don't know what's that reason ), I remember I was bored surfing the internet until I stumbled on some very cute pictures of nails on Facebook.
I got more and more excited, so I decided to go and buy what I needed: brushes and a dotter.
These are some of my creations:




 
 
I always do nail arts that are easy to recreate, so nothing too difficult; mainly because I'm not good at drawing so I just can't do too elaborate designs. I try to reproduce what I see on photos I find on the net, and I don't use professional tools or nail polishes, just the ones you find in beauty stores.
 



 
The time I spend on a nail art varies a lot on how much complicated it is, and on how quick nail polishes dry. Sometimes you just need a lot of patience! I know I don't do surprising things but I'm pretty proud of myself, I hope I get better with practicing.
 



 
 
What do you think about nail art? Do you like it? Have you ever tried it?
 
That's it for now....I haven't been writing in a while I know, I've just been busy with Uni, exams and stuff....I will try to write more from now on.
 
Until the next time have fun and enjoy yourself!

Love, Anna.
