Object of desire: Gucci '1973' tote

Hello everyone! I was browsing the online stores the other day (no,not shopping,just looking whats new) and I found this gorgeous Gucci bag! The official name of the bag is '1973' tote bag and I can say I am in love.Look at that beauty. The reason I love it is because its so classic and modern at the same time, big enough to put all you will need and it goes pretty much with everything.

Now for the price...on the official Gucci site the price is from 1350 to 1700 dollars.Thats a lot of money to spend on a handbag but this is a classic peace that you can enjoy wearing for years and always look stylish.
Even the celebs couldnt resist it :)
Angelina Jolie,Monica Cruz and Eva Mendez just to name a few....

So,there it my latest object of desire...Have you find a bag\shoes\etc. that you are obsessing about lately?

"Designer" nails

Many of us dream about that perfect designer bag that would have a special place in our closet (Chanel, LV, Fendi...) but so often there are other priorities and the object of our desires stays just that...object of desire. But if you cant have that logo on your bag (or shoes or scarf...) how about your nails?
For those who are good with nail art there are plenty of logos that are easy to make,like the Chanel one on the photo above.
Or this Burbery ,but you need to have a steady hand and some patience .

I still havent deacided how I feel about all those logos on the nails,but I guess if its descrete it would be ok.I like the idea of black and white combination.

For those who dont have the patience (or the skills for nail art) there are stickers and already airbrushed nail tips.

So what do you think,would you rock designer nails,or it is a lil too much for you?
Stay beautiful
Love and kisses:***

Mini haul :)

Hi everyone! Lately I am obsessing about nail polish (I read a lot of nail polish dedicated blogs ;) and whenever I go out for a walk I find my self looking for some cute nail polish. Am I becoming an addict :) ? Anyway, few days ago I visited a few chinesse stores and I want to share with you what I bought. Also almost two weeks ago my mom surprised me with a pre Christmas package with some goodies :) *Love you Mom,you are spoiling me*
So here are the nail polishes
 *Yes Love (number 502) - silver,but when it dries it is almost matte - 1 euro
 * Coral Prosilk (number 08) - creamy white - 2,60 euros
 * Yolizul Fashion (n.158) - gold glitter - 1 euro
 * Yolizul Fashion (n.242) - classic red - 1 euro
 * Mulensa (or something like that,the sticker is scratched and it doesn't have a number) - dark emerald green          with shimmer - 1 euro

I was inspired by the upcoming holidays so thats why I picked gold glitter,red,white...

I also find these black and white nail polishes for nail art,they are by Easy Paris Cosmetics and they cost 1,50 each.They have a very thin brush and also a needle point tip for more precision.

I liked these two for nail art a lot,and I will get more colors,I am thinking red maybe :) Now I just need to practice a lil more,cause I already have a few designs in mind :)

This is the necklace my mom send to me,she knows turquoise is one of my favorite colors, and I was so happy when I saw it,cause it goes so well with my H&M ring I got this summer :)

My dear mom also got me a Dior Addict lipstick ( 257 Rose Oscillation).Its the most perfect light pink,and I have been using it almost every day since I got it.

Last,but not least,she get me the pair of black crock leather pumps.I havent got the chance to wear them out yet,but I am planing to for the holidays!

So that is all for this mini haul.I hope I will find some time (and patience) to do some nice nail art so I can show you.Till then stay happy and beautiful
Love Mimi:****

Dear Santa....

Hello everyone! It time for a Christmas wishlist :) and since I was very good this year I am writing a letter to Santa :) So here are some of the items that found their way to my wishlist (some of items are favorites that I already tried and love but could use a new one and some of the stuff I never used and would love to try)

( No,candy,lasagna,pizza are not a part of the wishlist, I am trying to stick to a diet :D )
One of my all time favorites

I would love to try Kim Kardashian pafume

                                                       Love the Sketchers sneakers and need a new Shape ups

Heard so many great reviews about Clarisonic



                                                 The best "fake" tan line ever,love it :*

Since I saw a video on Youtube with these babies I am obsessed about them and want to try them

                                                             Cute bags from Mango

So thats it for my Christmas wishlist (well,I could go on and on and.....but I decided its better to be modest).
What is on your wishlist this year? Have you already started shopping for presents?

Winter makeup Must-Have: Lashes,Lashes

Whenever I think of makeup looks for winter, one of the first things that comes to mind are big,volumised,black curled lashes.The darker and thicker the better.In my opinion what works best for winter is flawless mat skin with neutral blushes and the statement eyes.With gorgeous lashes.
I just love love big sexy lashes,weather you wear a classic smokey eye (black,gray,brown) or just a touch of a neutral eyeshadow big dark lashes just give you that extra dose of glamour. My favorite tool is my eyelash curler and I use it every single day,then I put at least two coats of mascara.Here are some of my top mascaras that I love (most of them are drugstore brands that I think in most cases are way better then high end mascars)
L'oreal Voluminous - by far one of the best I tried

Maybelline Volum' Express Turbo Boost 

Lancome Hypnose Drama
L'oreal Extra Volume Collagene

Now a little tip: If you want extra volume on your lashes but without clumps the eyebrow\eyelash comb is your best friend! After applying every coat of mascara wait a few seconds then brush your lashes and repeat with another coat of mascara.This way you will get the lenght and the volume you want but your lashes will be clump free,defined and separated.
Now lately I have been on the hunt for some false lashes but I don't want to spend a fortune on them since most of them are just for one use.So please if you know some affordable line of false lashes let me know :)

What is your favorite mascara ? Do you have any tips on applying it?
Love and Kisses :*****
