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,

Mia

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.

VIENNA, AUSTRIA

Hey everyone,

this weekend I have spent in Vienna with my family. Since my sister lives there we have decided to visit her. Although the trip itself was incredible and we have spend days sightseeing and shopping, unfortunately I will not remember it for the good times we had or finding my prom dress. Although I didn't know whether to share this with you or not, I wasn't able to just write how amazing my trip was as it isn't the truth. Instead of spending quality family time and enjoying the weekend we have received the news that my grandmother has passed away. This news completely shocked all of us and, not to go into detail, it still is a shock. This is why I will not do a proper haul as I wanted to and instead just show you some of the photos I have took.

Hopefully, I will soon post a proper post that I was planing on to, however I think it is better to spend quality time with the rest of my family for now. Thank you so much for understanding.





Much love,

Mia

OOTD - NATURAL WITH EDGE


Hey everyone,

Although I have never posted a similar post to this one, I have decided to do one and it is an outfit of the day together with a kind of "make-up part".

Basically, I will show you an outfit that I wear when I go out together with what products I have used to achieve the make-up look. I am not the person to wear loads of make-up on a daily bases and usually I wear either nothing (as I do during the summer) or apply only powder or mascara, however, I have decided to still do this and show you what I apply when I attend "special" occasions.

Make-up can be worn for various reasons, but I wear mine because it is fun to experiment with and makes you look and feel prettier. Anyhow, for the following look I have used the basic products: foundation, blush, mascara, eye-lashes curler eye-pencil.

I'm not the type of person who would wear tons of make-up which is why you will see that I apply only a tiny amount of powder and other products. I think the natural looking make-up is the best, but I also love the red lip :)

Also, I think it is very important using the "right" products. By "right" I am referring to its quality. Lately I had trouble finding long-lasting products which I was 100% satisfied with. After a long time of searching for new and better ones I have settled for the ones I use currently and will show you in this post. What I find even worse and more difficult is finding products which are cheaper yet still good. That is exactly what you will see later on, the products I am using are mostly cheaper and are good quality. I would recommend all of the ones I am using, however, you will for sure find better ones if you are ready to give out more money for them.


                  










I was wearing:
top: Urban Outfitters
skirt: Bershka (here)
heels: Zara (here)
necklace: H&M (here)

I was also using:
foundation: YSL le teint touche eclat (here)
mascara: Maybelline New York  the one-by-one volum' express mascara (here)
blush: The One Sweep Sculpting Blush Duo (here)
eye pencil: Dior crayon eyeliner pencil (here)
lip stick: Dior Addict Lip Glow (here)

I really hope you like the look and the products that I have used, which I use all the time and are my absolute favorites. Also, I hope you all will follow me on my Instagram page which is @mmiaxx. Just check it out and if you want to follow, follow, if not, don't. :) I follow everyone back.

I also want to tell you that I was thinking about doing a "what I use for my skin" post and wanted to know what you think about that idea.
Much love,

Mia

OOTD - BOYFRIEND JEANS

Hey everyone,

I hope you all are enjoying summer and the summer break. I'm having a wonderful time and am still in my beautiful city - Zagreb. Since Greece I didn't go anywhere, instead my cousin from Slovenia came to visit me. We had a blast! She was here for 4 days and we did literally everything. Loved going to coffee four times a day haha. Although I am extremely tired, I enjoyed the weekend.

Before I go to the seaside and to Vienna, which I will do this weekend, I wanted to share with you one of the outfits I wore when we went out and explored Zagreb. I love my beautiful city and although it was raining when we took these it still looked amazing!

This outfit of mine I adore. It's rather chic and stylish then just a causal outfit but you can still wear it to when you go to the city, to coffee or to school/uni. The bag I have worn is my newest baby - Givenchy. It's the Antigona and it is stunning and worth every penny! I have so much fun styling it and wearing it with different outfits.

I hope you like the outfit and I'll talk to you soon :)

Day 2 - Athens, Greece


Hey everyone,

as you already might know I've been to Greece in June. I had such a wonderful time and have decided to share with you some memories. Already, I have posted an entry on the first day of the trip which we spent on one of the islands, Hydra. It was an incredible experience and the weather was perfect! After that, the rest of the trip we stayed in Athens. Athens is breathtaking! From the unique historical monuments to the small and crowded streets, I've loved to visit it!

We have spent the second day exploring Athens and at the evening we went to one of my favorite spots and watched the sun set. It was beautiful! We took so many photos and it was hard to pick a favorite. I will show you just some of them :)

Soon, I will post other entries about the trip and other outfits that I have worn and don't forget to follow me on Instagram (instagram.com/mmiaxx) to know more about the upcoming posts. 

The outfit I have chosen to wear is very comfy yet in my opinion chick and I love it! Tell me your thoughts :)
