New In: What For Ankle Boots




Have you ever bought anything that turned out to be disappointing and of low quality? Well, I am glad to inform you that no such thing happened during my Black Friday order of these beautiful What For dark blue ankle boots made of softest kid leather with some amazing detailing. I won't tell you how much I paid for them as you will probably get really envious of me (app. half of the current sale price), but they are still available here in black. If only they had them in grey as well!

Jeste li ikada kupili nešto što vas je duboko razočaralo svojom kvalitetom i izgledom? Ovoga puta sa zadovoljstvom moram utvrditi kako se ništa sličnog nije dogodilo tijekom moje Black Friday narudžbe prekrasnih tamnoplavih What For gležnjača, izrađenih od najmekše kozje kože s preciznim diskretnim detaljima. Ne želim vam otkriti koliko sam ih platila (osim da je iznos blizak otprilike polovici već snižene cijene), no još uvijek ih u crnoj boji možete kupiti ovdje. Da su barem dostupne i u sivoj boji!

Friday Lust - Komad


KOMAD is a Croatian word for a piece of something and also Croatian slang for a nice piece of clothing or a beautiful woman. Through minimal lines, KOMAD comes to express the confident and free-spirited woman who achieves being perfectly and effortlessly cool. A Croatia based clothing label, designed for minimalists at heart creates classic yet unique designs. If you always envied chic women from Northern Europe, look no more. Struggling to choose only one item, I picked a killer combo for my Friday Lust post. Let us sin this weekend.

KOMAD ima za misiju dizajniranje odjeće koja čini život ljepšim, boljim, a svakako i mekšim i udobnijim. Težeći jednostavnosti i čistoći bez suvišnih detalja, KOMAD je modni brend sa sjedištem u Hrvatskoj, namijenjen svim minimalisticama. Svojim minimalističkim linijama, KOMAD stvara jednostavne, pročišćene linije pomaknutih krojeva koji ga čine istovremeno diskretnim ali zaigranim, klasičnim ali uvijek modernim. Klasici koji se lako kombiniraju i nikada ne izlaze iz mode imaju svoju priču i mogu se nositi na više načina. Ako ste uvijek zavidjeli minimalizmu žena Sjeverne Europe, ne gledajte dalje. Upravo stoga nisam mogla izabrati samo jedan komad za čežnju petkom, već ubojitu kombinaciju za grešan vikend.

Friday Lust - Chanel 2017 Boots






A girl can dream, right? Following the "kind of ugly" spring/summer Chanel slingbacks, these boots are more than definitely made for walking. Also, maybe I haven't mentioned already that I need gray boots that go well with both dresses and jeans. Since my politeness forbids me, I won't mention the price, but you can check for yourself here. Maybe, when I wake up, I get to find a similar pair of a different brand.

Žena smije sanjati, zar ne? Nakon ne toliko lijepih proljetno-ljetnih cipela s otvorenom petom, ove su čizme definitivno napravljene za hodanje. Također, možda nisam do sada spomenula da mi *trebaju* poluvisoke sive čizme koje će pristajati i na haljinu i na hlače. Pristojnost me sprečava da otkrijem njihovu cijenu, ali možete sami provjeriti ovdje. Možda, kada se probudim, nađem sličan par drugog branda.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! This year I haven't done any Halloween DIY projects, so take a look at some of the last years' DIYs (and a yummy recipe). If all else fails, get a couple of theme appropriate macarons and watch a scary movie.

Friday Lust - Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette

 



Lately, I fell into Charlotte Tilbury spell. I adore her Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette so I instantly noticed her new eye candy. Uniting four colour-coded shade trios for complete ‘Day’, ‘Desk’, ‘Date’ and ‘Disco’ looks – the nude, taupe, golden and midnight hues offer the most elegant, refined finishes you’re likely to lay your lucky eyes on. The matte colours give an understated, soft-focus finish, while the shimmering shades are dewy, glowing and delicately twinkling. The Instant Eye Palette is certain to become an instant classic. Open the decadent, gleaming gold art deco case (complete with an in-built mirror) and you’ll uncover 12 unique shades, cleverly concocted in four trios for ‘Day’, ‘Desk’, ‘Date’ and ‘Disco’ looks, each with colours designed to ‘Prime’ ‘Enhance’ and ‘Smoke’ lids to perfection. ‘Day Eye’ features matte, ballet shoe pink, softly burnished silver-pink and buttery soft matte taupe shades. ‘Desk Eye’ stars shimmering apricot-champagne and super-soft terracotta and auburn brown matte hues. ‘Date Eye’ features cool, shimmering rose gold, twinkling bronze-silver and richly pigmented dark taupe matte shades. Finally, ‘Disco Eye’ stars gently glimmering pale gold, mesmerising bronze olive-gold and true midnight black matte shades. Stick to the carefully crafted combinations or cast the rule book aside and let your inner eyeshadow eye go wild – either way, your lids will look resplendent from dusk till dawn. You can get it here and thank me later.


Nedavno sam potpala pod čari Charlotte Tilbury. Obožavam Filmstar Bronze & Glow paletu te sam odmah uočila novitet koji je izašao na tržište. Spajajući četiri bojom kodirana tria za savršen "Day" (dnevni), "Desk" (poslovni), "Date" (spoj) i "Disco" look - nude, sivo-smeđe, zlatne i noćne nijanse pružaju najelegantniji i najprofinjeniji izgled koji ste ikada imali prilike vidjeti. Matte boje daju besprijekoran, mekani fokus, dok svjetlucave nijanse sjajno i nježno sjaje. Instant Eye Paleta zasigurno će postati instant klasik. Dekadentna, sjajna, zlatna art-deco kutijica s ugrađenim ogledalom skriva 12 jedinstvenih nijansi, grupiranih u "Day", "Desk", "Date" i "Disco" look, svaki s bojama grupiranim po prepoznatljivom Charlotte principu: "Prime" (pripremi), "Enhance" (naglasi) i "Smoke" (potamni) kapak. "Day" look sadrži hladne, mat, nježno ružičaste i sjajne srebrno-ružičaste te meke mat sivo-smeđe nijanse. "Desk" look predstavlja sjajne nijanse šampanjca i marelice, nježnu boju terakote i kestenjasto-smeđu mat nijansu. "Date" look uključuje hladne, sjajno ružičasto zlatne i brončano-srebrne nijanse uz dodatak snažno pigmentiranih sivo-smeđih mat nijansi. Naposljetku, "Disco" look nježno sjaji prozračnim i očaravajućim brončanim maslinastim zlatom te ponoćno crnom mat nijansom. Ova paleta daje izbor hoćete li ostati pri prokušanim kombinacijama ili ćete pravila staviti sa strane te podivljati izborom neočekivanih nijansi. U svakom slučaju, kapci će blistati od sumraka do zore. Paletu možete nabaviti ovdje i zahvaliti mi kasnije.

L'Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew

L'Oreal made some of my first face creams during adolescent years. My favorite ones were from L'Oreal Happyderm and Skin Genesis lines and I still regret that they are not available any more. Their whipped cream texture suited my skin well and primed it for make-up perfectly. From age 35 skin becomes less firm, less elastic (hello forties!) and wrinkles become more apparent. Laser Renew day cream provides intense action and targets wrinkles, skin firmness and skin texture. Advanced rejuvenating care for visible results re-plumps, re-firms and refines skin texture. Containts independently tested Hyaluronic Acid and 3% Pro-Xylane in their highest concentration. 


Prve kreme koje sam počela koristiti u kasnim tinejdžerskim godinama potpisivao je L’Oreal. Tijekom godina isprobala sam mnoge L’Oreal kreme i serume, vrlo lako moguće čak i većinu asortimana, a moja je koža uvijek pozitivno reagirala na njihove proizvode. Sjećate li se Happyderm i Skin Genesis linija za njegu lica? Još i danas žalim što su ukinute, obožavala sam Happyderm kremu za suhu kožu, teksture poput ružičastog tučenog vrhnja, kao i Skin Genesis serum koji je bio odlična podloga za bilo koju kremu i nanošenje šminke. Ovog sam puta imala priliku isprobati Revitalift Laser Renew dnevnu kremu koja intenzivno djeluje protiv bora te poboljšava čvrstoću i teksturu kože. Djeluje trostruko: popunjava bore, učvršćuje i zaglađuje.

Friday Lust - Real Techniques Blend + Blur

The Blend + Blur collection from Real Techniques



It has been a while since the last Law of Taste Friday series, so meet new and re-vamped Friday Lust where I'll be writing about all things desirable and lust-worthy. Starting with my top wishlist brush, I believe this is a fine way to start Friday Lust blogposts. The Blend + Blur collection from Real Techniques features 5 specially designed brushes perfect for blending foundation, contour, blush, and eyeshadow. The ultra-soft blurring bristles create an effortless finish without streaking or lines. Use with creams, powders, and liquid for a seamlessly blended look. My eye is specifically on the Blend + Blur Foundation Brush, which is a densely packed oval head for cream or liquid foundation application. The prices are more than friendly, from 13$ for an eyeshadow brush to 20$ for the face brushes. Since they haven't arrived to Europe yet, I will unfortunately have to wait for a bit longer or maybe indulge in buying it via their US website.



Prošlo je dosta vremena od zadnjih žudnji petkom, stoga upoznajte novu, obnovljenu Čežnju petkom, u kojoj pišem o željenim i žuđenim bombončićima. Počevši od prve na mojoj listi želja, mislim da je ovo više nego dobar način za započeti seriju. Real Techniques Blend + Blur kolekcija uključuje 5 specijalno dizajniranih kistova za nanošenje tekućih pudera, pudera za konturiranje, rumenila i sjenila. Vrlo mekane dlačice daju savršen izgled bez crta i nepravilnosti. Mogu se koristiti za nanošenje tekućih, kremastih i puderastih formula. Moja je želja Blend + Blur kist za podlogu, gusti ovalni kist za nanošenje tekuće ili kremaste podloge. Cijene su više nego prihvatljive, od 10 EUR za kist za sjenilo pa sve do 18 EUR za veće kistove. S obzirom na to da još nisu dostupne u Europi, mislim da ću nažalost morati još malo pričekati ili popustiti i nabaviti ih preko njihovog US weba.

Autumn Wedding Inspiration

After one massive "I am sorry" for my recent absence, please take my sincere apology. Life took over and I got married, whilst losing track of blogging time.  There were a lot of new make-up and skincare goodies and I can't wait to show them all to you. For starters, before my official wedding photos, take a look at my inspiration board that helped me choose my dress, hair, make-up, flowers and cake. Since I spent a lot of time surfing the Internet for my perfect wedding attire, if you need further minimalistic autumn wedding recommendations, feel free to leave a comment with your question and I will be happy to help!

Nakon velikog "Oprostite na dugom izbivanju", nadam se da ćete uvažiti iskrenu ispriku. Kako to obično biva, dogodio se život te sam, ponajviše zbog vjenčanja, izgubila dojam o vremenu za blog. Tijekom posljednjih mjeseci pojavilo se puno novih make-up i kozmetičkih noviteta te ne mogu dočekati da vam sve pokažem. Za početak, prije službenih vjenčanih fotki koje čekam, pogledajte fotografije koje su me inspirirale pri izboru vjenčanog kompleta, frizure, make-upa i cvijeća. Kako sam previše vremena provela pretražujući Internet u potrazi za savršenom vjenčanom opremom, ako trebate dodatnu inspiraciju za jednostavno jesensko vjenčanje, ostavite komentar s pitanjem i rado ću pomoći!

Late Summer New In: Castañer Chiara canvas wedge espadrilles




The Castañer family has been reinventing the espadrille since 1927. In the late ‘60s, the brand gained prominence after creating the first jute-soled wedge for Yves Saint Laurent – an iconic summer style. It is not a very usual thing for me to buy summer shoes late in the season, but I just couldn't stop looking at these from the very moment I saw them. These 8 cm wedge espadrilles have a 3 cm platform. They are made of canvas and natural jute with a V-shaped upper, as well as jute toe and heel of jute string and cotton. The wrap ankle ties with cords are beautiful and look very chic. Chiara espadrilles are, hands down, the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, no matter the heel height and I will definitely be getting some more next summer. You can get them here or here.
