Obsessed: bloody red!

Hey there! Well, as you may know by now, I am a big fan of nail polish and this bloody red by OPI has been my favorite for at least 5 months now. It’s a very bright and intense tone of red and I feel like it can be worn all year round! Even now with the coming of summer, everyone is all about pastel tones, I feel like this bright red would look amazing still. Also I love the name! “Off with her red!” haha

This color is from the Alice in Wonderland collection from last year, and you can still find it here.

Hope you liked! :) xx

Summer Series #1

12345678.

Here in Taipei summer has already arrived! (except for a couple of unsolicited rains -_-) But for the most part, it’s safe to say that summer is here, because of the fact that for a few weeks now, I haven’t been able to turn off my fan :/ we’ll know summer is in full swing when it starts to become necessary to be in the A/C all day…

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you my dream outfits for this summer IF I had an unlimited budget for shopping! haha So here is the first outfit I came up with, with the lovely (and very trendy) coral and minty tones combined with my favorite: nudes! Anyone who knows me, knows I have a weird infatuation with everything colored nude, especially leathery goods. They just look eternally classy, and are very easy to mix with any type of styles and colors.

Below the image are the links for the pieces featured on the outfit. Hope you like! xx

A couple of new things.

Last weekend, I went to the Zhongxiao Dunhua shopping area here in Taipei, originally to go buy a pair of TOM’S. There is only one official retailer here in Taiwan and it’s around that area. Before arriving at the place that sold the TOM’S we stopped by the ALDO store and, as I expected, something caught my attention.

Before telling you what it was that caught my eye, I must explain that going into that store is torture for me every time. This is mainly because I always love everything I see there, but it is so much more expensive here in Taipei than in other countries, and that puts it completely out of my budget. But when I saw these wedges I fell in love! I’ve been looking for a pair of wedges that could go with everything for months now. I love high heels, but my feet don’t; they can’t take them for too long. That is not the case for wedges,  and these ones in particular are the best thing ever, they look amazing and are incredibly comfortable. They are exactly what I was looking for. So I ended up spending much more money than I had planned, but I feel like it was worth it; they will be perfect for spring and summer :)

After leaving ALDO, and saying goodbye to my friends, I went to the metro station to go back home (I live around 45 mins from downtown Taipei). On the station they had a couple of shops, and I ran into a really cute store that had this lovely wrap watch below. I have been wanting one like this for a while and since it was fairly cheap (around 15USD) I decided to get it. I absolutely love it!

And then, on that same store they had OPI nail polishes for regular US retail price (around 7USD), so I couldn’t resist getting these two colors. I’ve been wanting to buy the “Fly” from the Nicki Minaj collection for a while, but had been hesitating because of the price (it was around 12USD at the OPI store), so when I saw it at this amazing price, I didn’t think it twice and went for it. The other color is “Dulce de Leche” and just by the name you can tell it’s amazing, but it’s also the perfect nude color which is always in, looks good with anything and can be worn on any type of occasion.

I am officially broke after that visit to ALDO, but I do not regret it. The only thing left to do, is keep making wishlists for when the money fairies decide to pay me a visit! :) Hope you like! xx
