Suede Care and Vincent Camuto mini haul!

I am so happy to announce my new video ! :) I never take care of my shoes (really..) and I thought now is a great time to start! I did a little research because my poor Kenneth Cole pumps were screaming to me " help, stain, help!" I learned that with Suede you have to be gentle. It is a very delicate material and there are products out there that are specially made for Suede. 

Here are the material list I used: 

1. Baby wipes
2. Suede Renovating spray 
3. Water Resistant spray for suede 
4. Suede Brush 

These were all by Troy. 

So the steps are easy : 

1. Use baby wipes for stains or dirt on your shoes. 
2. Spray the Renovating spray all over your shoes and spread it evenly by brushing it lightly. 
3. Let them dry for 15 mins. 
4. Spray the Water Resistant spray to protect and elongate the life of your shoes! 

Here is the before and after pictures. Definitely a big difference! 

I also talked about how to care for your new shoes. 
I brushed my new Vince Camutos with the suede brush and then lightly sprayed with the protecting spray. 
I hope this helps!

weekend play: boho shirt

Hi everybody! I hope your weekend was fun. For me, It was very rewarding to film my second video. I still have lots to learn about handling the camera and I hope to improve little by little!

PC vintage bag and monochromatic outfit!!

Hello! I hope you are all having a happy friday! Im getting ready to go to the movies with Mr. Finley (my boyfriend) and I wanted to post my outfit for today.
So today we are pairing edgy pieces with soft fabrics. These type of contrasts make me happy. 

For my makeup, I did a simple smokey eye, I didn't want to go heavy with this, since I wanted a red lipstick. I have chubby cheeks so I love to put bright pink blushes on them to make them look like  peaches!  Yey for peaches! 

Here I am wearing leather-jean pants. They have a rough texture and zippers on the ankles to add attitude to the outfit. 

My mom bought this purse in a boutique in Paris. It is a Pierre Cardin handbag and I love how the leather feels. It is a very sturdy bag and it looks vintage, perfect for this outfit! You can also pair this with a classic chanel flap bag. 

For a casual look I am wearing simple cotton tee. I can never get enough simple white t-shirts :) 

  These shoes are my everyday pumps. I love them with jeans or a black dress. They have this beautiful mirror heel that makes me happy! Of course suede makes me happy too!

Have a great weekend everyone. Hope to see you soon!

Top: Zara
Sweater: Zara

Welcome to Fall! 
I love autumn, it is my favorite season of the year. I love it how the weather cools down and the colors begin to warm up! I wanted a nice comfy way of walking around the neighborhood, while still echoing the colors of the season! 

I will be doing a series of outfits for fall, hope you get inspired! 


These Boots are so comfortable because they have a thick heel and it makes it so easy to walk around with these!

I love the leather accents that echo wood. Which is also a great inspiration material for me!

This is my darling Burberry Bag. I  like to call her BB! I choose this bag because of the amazing details of the brass, and the combination of squares and leather remind me of nordic woods. 
It echoes the Plaid on the shirt and leather on the boots. :) yey

This is a large leather belt. It is a great piece to have. So versatile! 
It can go with almost anything and adds definition to your waist! 

This is my ring. It is made out of crystals and amethysts. It is of no particular brand I just found it on the store and loved it! Purple is also one of my favorite colors <3 it goes great with warm tones. 

With makeup you really want to make the look wearable. I choose a very light pink blush to accent my cheekbones. I have a tinted moisturizer, some liquid eyeliner, mascara and tinted lip balm. this look is simple and laid back! 

Top: Hollister 
Belt: Thrift store 
Leggins: Zara
Boots: Tommy Hilfiger 
Bag: Burberry 

See you next time!

How to treat your allergies

Hi everyone, so my first Post is going to be about Allergies. I've been a victim of this all my life, but thanks to these tips I've been able to control the symptoms and improve my lifestyle. So I hope this helps for you as well.

Here is the video I made for this:

So here are the products I like:

Fleming Pharmaceuticals:  Ocean

This is the salt water spray I currently use. I "flush" my nose every morning and evening before my skincare routine. This helps clean the nasal passages and let you breathe better during those hard seasons :)

Even after a week for using this you will feel the difference.

The supplements I recommend are Quercetin and Omega 3.

Omega 3 is so good for you. It not only helps strengthen your immune system but the benefits are countless. Your brain uses this oil a lot! And it not only improves your skin, but also your overall health.

I take two pills a day ( the ideal is 3) before each meal.

The other supplement that is specially helpful for allergies is Quercetin. But people who have liver disease should not take this, and also pregnant women have to be careful too.

I recommend always checking in with your doctor before you take any supplement.

Another great way to improve your allergies are teas :)
Pine Tree teas are a huge boost of vitamin C, which is essential to your immune system.

If you need an instant relief get some eucalyptus herbs and place them in boiling water.
Place a towel over your head and start breathing the water vapor that comes out of the water. It will immediately open your nasal passages :)
You can do this once per day or two to three times a week for an improved condition.

Thank you for reading and I hope your allergies improve!
Id love to know how you treat your allergies so please tell me in the comments section :)
