One of my favorite things in Los Angeles is that you can go down to the beach anytime you want. I️ think I️ might have said that before, but it’s really true. I’m a hopeless romantic, what can I️ say?
So this time I️ met up with an upcoming photographer/filmmaker Ou Zhang (Instagram: @ouzhangstudio) to do an analog and digital shoot without any other equipment but the camera and the gorgeous sunset. Here’s what we got out of this beautiful late afternoon.
I️ am wearing a Zara dress, DKNY sweater, Chanel foundation and Maybelline matte lipstick.
Tell me about your favorite beach in the comments below.
One of my first photo shoots in LA was in Pasadena and the photographer had an idea to make it a ‘fairy lost in the woods’ theme. And you know me, I’m all for themes and creative ideas so I was on board immediately. And here’s what happened on that magical day.
I am wearing a skirt from H&M, shirt from Zara and this time no shoes! 🙈 Lipstick is a liquid matte lipstick from MAC. Recommend it if you want a great quality, long-lasting matte lipstick that doesn’t dry your lips. 👄💄
What is your favorite matte lipstick brand?
I’m not sure you know this about me, but I’m not the biggest fan of summer… yes, I know, shocking, right? There are many reasons for this feeling but one important one is that I cannot dress up the way I want because when it’s so hot I cannot stand too many pieces… but I love layering. Who doesn’t?
Anyways, the day came when we had a little cooler weather and I decided to go a little simpler with my outfit and do a prompt photoshoot to capture the sunny, yet cool weather.
I debuted my new mom jeans and my lovely bird slip-ons. Let’s see!
I’m wearing shoes from Zara, mom jeans from Pull&Bear, shirt from Stradivarius. The bag has a reversible top and it’s from Stradivarius and the scarf on it is from Zara. The sunglasses are Hickmann and my lipstick is Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid, No. 45 Possessed Plum.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a wedding and this was definitely one of the best, if not the best we’ve been at. It took place on a magical place, on a farm basically, but it was carefully crafted to be suitable for hopeless city people who, let’s just admit is now, we are. It was nature but in its most beautiful and finest form. We had an absolute blast. The food was great, the guests were amazing and of course the couple was breathtakingly beautiful. The bride was one of my best friends and the groom is a great guy whom she met 3 years ago and it was meant to be. Since I was a little bit involved in the tasks leading up to the wedding, I knew it was gonna be a really fancy event. So my friend told me to go for it with my dress as well. I have lots of clothes, but not really something for an occasion like this, so I had to think and above all, shop! I had a very limited budget so I decided to take a risk and look at Aliexpress to find a suitable dress. My friend, the bride, sent me a link to this dress and I was like, well, ok, but what if it’s total crap?! So I started checking the reviews and pictures people posted wearing this dress and I decided to buy it 4 weeks before the wedding… As you see I was almost out of time, so I got the faster shipping and altogether my dress was a little over $100!! Seriously! And when it arrived I was totally blown away! It was a perfect fit! And perfectly executed!
So I put on some silver pumps underneath, which you cannot see, but they’re there and were there all night! So if there was a medal for the lady who wore high heels the most that night, well that medal would definitely go to me. LOL
I got my makeup done by the same guy who did my friend’s, aka the bride’s makeup and I did a little something with my hair to make it fun.
So here are a couple of picture of me and my boo at the wedding!

Hey there! My most visited posts are the ones about beauty products…not really know why because I think my fashion posts seem better quality but you never know what will work with the blog-viewer community. LOL
So without further ado, here this week’s favorites.
I’m a bit sad that I only discovered this brand now… but better late than never, right? So this is L’Occitane, a French cosmetics brand. That maybe the only thing you need to know because when you hear French and cosmetics in the same sentence, you know it’s good stuff! 🙂
The way I got familiar with this brand is very girl-like. So we have something like a name day (just like a birthday but not really) and mine is in the beginning of December. And every December I cannot wait for my Advent calendar! You know it’s the thing with chocolate 🍫 in it for every day until Christmas. Yes, you read it right! LOL And last year we were on a plane ✈️ on my name day, so my love had no advent calendar for me. I admit I was a bit disappointed. And I thought he totally forgot about but 2 days later he said let’s go to the mall. And there we started looking for this calendar. But I told him I didn’t want chocolate because I was (as always) on a diet, so we looked for a substitute advent calendar and there is was! Huge, colorful and full of beauty products! A L’Occitane advent calendar! I know this story was way too long, so let’s just say that all the 24 little things were amazing in it!
The 2 little bottles in the picture are from that calendar. The white one is a shower gel and the other is a flower scented, sparkling (literally) body lotion. Yes!! Must have!
The big container is the most amazing body lotion/butter I have ever used! Hands down! It was a bit pricey, I admit, but soooo worth it! My skin was ver dry after this intense winter to I had to use other lotions every night, sometimes more than once to make the dry skin go away. But with this, I used it 3 nights in a row and then the dry skin totally disappeared and I only use it now 2-3 times a week. And if this wasn’t enough, it smells like heaven! That is almond milk! Aaaaand I saved the best for last…it has a body firming effect as well! So I encourage you to go get this baby ASAP!
