Portugal - Instagram diary


Hey everyone,

so I have done one of these entries earlier this year and called it "Greece - Instagram diary" (you can read it here). As well as I, you guys liked the idea of me showing you the breathtaking and fun photos I took on my trip instead of just babbling on about how amazing my trip was.

And as you know, I am obsessed with Instagram haha. You can follow me here - @mmiaxx if you haven't already :) I follow back.

Anyhow, I had an amazing time with my entire class as this was a graduation trip. We spent a full week exploring Portugal staying three nights in Lisbon and three nights in Estoril. Not only did we get to explore this beautiful country, we got to hang out with the locals, the tourists and one of my favorite parts - see what it has to offer besides the typical touristy attractions. Not to forget, we got to swim in the ocean which was such an amazing experience!

What I love most about visiting a new city, or country, is not only discovering the shiny and exaggerated parts, but experiencing the life of the city/country. Having seen the positive and the negative parts I have gathered a lot of knowledge and am glad to say I would come back to visit any day.

So, without further adieu, here is my Instagram diary of the trip to Portugal :)















I hope you liked the pictures as much as I did. I have definitely made great memories during this trip.

Much love,

Mia

OOTD - AUTUMN


Hey guys,

to start of I just started my last year of high school and I'm both a nervous wreck and super excited. I cannot wait to be leaving for college next year and I do hope I will continue blogging and share with you all my experiences.
Since my 18th birthday, which was about two weeks ago, nothing much has changed, obviously haha, but I have decided to try and become a better and happier version of myself. Having that in mind I started doing Yoga and Pilates, which I wanted for such a long time! Also, I really am trying to find time for blogging but my schedule has been so full it's crazy.

Anyhow, the weather is quite nice here in Zagreb, Croatia and I was actually able to wear shorts the day before yesterday. This outfit I wore was one of my favorite during colder summer evenings. I love the simplicity and the color shades as well as my new Zara boots with which I am currently obsessed with! They're so comfortable and easy to style, it's crazy! I can literally wear them with anything.

I hope you like the outfit :)










I was wearing:

OOTD - birthday


Hey everyone,

just to let you know it was my 18th birthday on the 5th of September!!!!! I am so excited / nervous to be 18, haha. Also I just recently came back from my trip to Portugal. I was there for a week with my entire class and we had so much fun. The weather was amazing and the place breathtaking! I will do a full on post about being 18 and how I have spent the entire day as well as how my trip to Portugal went, but for now I will just show you the outfit I wore.

I wore so many different outfits during the trip but this one is one of my favorites. It's very simple and such a cute summer outfit. I had a blast spending a week in Portugal with all my friends and cannot wait to show you all the beautiful photos I took.

Also, as you might already know I share all of my photos and experiences on my Instagram which is @mmiaxx. So if you would like, please follow me and I promise I will follow you back.

OOTD - ALL ZARA

Hey everyone,

as you might already know I am obsessed with Zara, it is my all time favorite brand and have therefore decided to do an all Zara outfit of the day. This look/outfit I have picked out is what I normally wear on a daily bases and what I have decided to wear to town today. Since the weather keeps constantly changing I need something which will keep me warm, but not too much. Also, as it was raining the past few days I threw on my favorite new boots I got just a couple of days ago. They are perfect for rainy yet warm autumn days. My style is pretty simple, I love casual, comfortable yet stylish looks and I think this outfit brings that across perfectly. 

I am so excited it will soon be autumn as I cannot wait to wear autumn clothes. I love to wear jackets and trench coats and style them with different pieces and scarfs. But until that time comes, I will try to enjoy the last days of summer and show you more summer looks that I love to wear.








I was wearing:
T-shirt: Zara
pants: Zara
boots: Zara

I hope you like the look. Feel free to comment, I read them all. :) 

Much love,

Mia

OOTD - summer paradise

Hey everyone,

to start with I apologize I haven't been active in almost a month. I spent this time with my family at the seaside, relaxing, swimming and getting tanned. It was such a relief after the stressful school year. This time around I am a senior and I'm too scared to even think about it. Last year of high school is both nerve-racking and very exciting! So with all the things I will have to do this year, I will do my best to stay active and blog.

Now on to the outfit, unlike now in Zagreb, the weather was beyond beautiful! Sunny and warm, almost every day. This particular outfit I love because it's very causal, summery yet stylish. I was able to go on coffee or just take a walk without worrying I'm either over-dressed or under-dressed.







 

I was wearing:
top: Forever 21
shorts: Zara
shoes: Converse All Star
sunglasses: H&M

Once again, sorry for the late update and I promise from now on I'll blog regularly :) Thank you for reading my blog and commenting!

Much love,

Mia

OOTD - Greece, Athens

Hey everyone,

I wanted to share with you an outfit I wore back when I was in Greece, which was a month ago :) As you might already know I was there for only the weekend yet had such an amazing time.

Currently, I am in a small town called Tisno in Croatia. I'm here for a month and don't really have any internet unless I'm in a cafe which is why I am not being as current with my uploads. Still I am having such an amazing time and most of the time the weather is great.

This outfit that I was wearing is very causal and comfy, which you by now know that I love. The dress is from my favorite store - Zara and my bag is my newest baby, from Gucci. I think this outfit is simple yet stylish and very comfy which makes it perfect for sightseeing!









I was wearing:
dress: Zara
bag: Gucci
shoes: Converse All Star
sunnies: H&M

Much love,

SKIN + HAIR CARE RUTINE

Hey everyone,

just a little update, I am at the seaside with no Internet (unless I'm at a coffee place) which means I'm not really able to check out your blogs and so on and I'm trying to be current with my posts. Hope you understand :)

Okay so, today I wanted to share with you the products I use for my skin and hair. As we all know one of the most important things, especially in summer, is to have clear skin. Throughout the year, if we have breakouts, we apply make-up and cover it up, yet during summer when we go to the beach this is not possible. The key to having clear skin is drinking plenty of water, eating healthy, working out and using the right skin products. I will show you the ones I use. There are not many and they are rather cheap yet good quality.

For my face I use on a daily bases, before I go to sleep the following:

1) Neutrogena Visibly Clear pink grapefruit Daily Scrub (here)

- I apply it first after taking off my make-up. I first wash my face with water and leave it partially wet, apply the product and wash it off afterwards. Although you can do it twice a day, in the morning and evening, I usually don't have time to do it before school, instead I apply it once a day.

2) Nivea Aqua Effect Moisturizing Night Care (here)

- After I have applied Neutrogena daily scrub, I apply this Nivea cream. Also, before I go to sleep as it moisturizes your face while you are sleeping. There are similar products which you can apply after waking up, however, since I usually put on my make-up, I don't use these products.

3) Garnier Skin renew anti-puff eye roller (here)

- Finally, I apply this Garnier roll on beneath my eyes, on the dark circles in order to prevent them.



What is also important is to take good care of your body, from shower gel to body creams you use. Mine are the following:

1) Eucerin Body Oil (very similar)

2) Nivea Body Milk Nourishing (here)
3) Nivea Smooth Milk body (here)

- I use both of these body creams depending on which I have available at home. Both make my skin very smooth and moisturize it. I use them after showering, but can be used any time of the day.

4) Garnier Ambre Solaire after sun hydrating tan maintainer (here)

- This body cream is used most often used after you were exposed to the sun instead of a regular body cream, such as previously mentioned, however it is much more than that. It actually gives you "fake" tan. It's not very harsh, but after it is used more times you can clearly see the difference. The key is to applying it good, meaning equally on all parts of your body so no orange/brown marks are left. I use this cream before I am able to go to the seaside in order to get tanned. It is also great for using after you get sunburned as it decreases the burns. 


Next off is taking care of your hair. There are many products you can/have to use. Mine are the following:

1) John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo (here)

2) John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Conditioner (here)

- Of course, starting off with the shampoo and conditioner. There are so many shampoos I have tried and this one is my absolute favorite. Although I don't consider myself blonde, my hair color gets pretty close to it during summer so in order to get an even lighter shade I started using John Frieda's go blonder shampoo and conditioner. I've been using them for a year now and am really satisfied. My hair is soft and is lighter then it was before.

3) L'Oreal Elseve Extraordinary Oil (here)

- There are many different oils for your hair and I find this one the most effective. It makes my hair super smooth and keeps my ends from splitting. Also, because after applying it your hair is oily you should only apply it in small amounts or a day before you want to wash it.

4) Pantene Pro-V Hairspray

- Lastly, the hair spray I use. Honestly, it can be any hair spray which makes your hair stay in place and is good quality.



I hope you liked the post, the next one will probably be a summer inspired post :)

Much love,

Mia

OOTD - night time my time

Hey everyone,

So before I begin I wanted to say thank you to everyone for the kind messages and words on my ssenescence.blogspot.com/2014/07/vienna-austria.html post. It's been a hard weekend and beginning of the week but I have definitely discovered that in life you have to do what you love which for me is blogging. Fashion has always been my passion and I finally have the chance to express it. Since I started blogging I enjoyed every single second of it. For that I want to thank all of you who are reading my posts and commenting on my blog. I've recently decided to share with you all my Instagram (@mmiaxx) and Twitter (@anothermiahere) accounts. I also want to make friends with you all, as I adore your blogs.

So the following outfit I love and have only recently bought. Although the photos are not the best quality since they've been taking during the night I still wanted to show you since it is what I wore yesterday night.

I love simple yet stylish outfits, which I think this one definitely is. It's perfect for hot summer nights and you don't have to spend a lot of time thinking about how to style it.

Tell me your thoughts :) Also, the next post will be on my make-up / skin care.

dress: Brandy Melville (here)
