SKINCARE | (Video) Favourites & Routine

A lot of people ask me for skincare advice so here it is! I made a point of not putting anything on my face so you can see exactly what it’s like, especially under bright lights. I personally think it’s important to show what your skin actually looks like when you’re giving people advice on products. Remember this is by no means a works-for-all list of products. My skin jumped around a lot – first it […]

GRWM – Everyday Go-To Makeup

Beauty / Shopping / Videos

Hi everybody! I’m extremely late with this. My skincare one will come right after this (the only reason I’m doing this first is because I can’t find my thumbnail file from that video anywhere!). I filmed my first “get ready with me” video the other day and thought I’d link all the products I use on a daily basis so you know where to get them. Again, the websites I use all ship internationally! If you […]

Sleek Makeup – Lipstick Collection & Lip Swatches

Beauty / Shopping

The other day while I was cleaning out my drugstore lipstick collection I noticed I had dozens of lipsticks in the same colours: mauve/dusty pink, wine red/bordeaux, creamy peach and blue-based red. I started rummaging through my entire collection – drugstore, high-end, proper luxury and even liquid lipsticks and, to my horror, I had more than a hundred lipsticks fitting into each of those colours. And the worst part is that I had nothing but those colours! I […]

One of my favourite places to shop in Lisbon. Located in the blooming Príncipe Real area, it is one of very few luxury boutiques in Lisbon that boast a selection of more niche, researched brands, such as Comme des Garçons, Sophie D’Hoore, Ter et Bantine, Hache, etc. When it comes to concept stores, Lisbon is slightly behind cities such as London (Dover Street Market), Paris (Colette) and Milan (10 Corso Como), which is to be […]

Since I’ve yet to organize all my things from NYC, here is a summary of my recent shopping haul upon returning to Rome. The house was closed up for three weeks, I used up all of my bath products while travelling, I bought a ton of new cosmetics and clothes while traveling… which means three basic needs: candles, hangers, cases and shower goodies!

The allure of Jo Malone

I love perfume as much as the next girl but I’ve never really given the whole ‘artisan perfume’ thing a shot. I’ve always just gone with my gut, tried the regular cosmetics shop brand perfumes (recently bought my second dose of Guerlain’s Petite Robe Noire) and bought what I liked. Recently, however, someone very close to me gave me something special for Christmas – a bottle of Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir cologne. I can say […]

The prestigious Galéries Lafayette have a new addition to their array of luxury brands – but only for a little while. To celebrate the anniversary of the establishment of the Galéries, Miu Miu unveiled today a new pop-up store designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi. Located right at the entrance, the new temporary corner has its outside covered in diamond-textured glass and is decorated with bright portraits of the Resort 2013 collection. Inside, the sophisticated interior is […]

The Tech Talk

Those who don’t know me that well will certainly say I’m a girl’s girl with a travelling heart, an eye for fashion and a laptop under her arm. But that’s not the whole story. I am, in fact, a little bit of a tech geek, and my usual dilemma when I have enough money is split three ways – a new bag, airplane tickets, or a gadget? This year the choice is very hard to make.

Golden Wolves Shop

The Golden Wolves Shop is officially open! The shop was born from the simple idea of wanting some extra money, extra space and sharing some of my unused purchases with the world. This is what it looks like right now, but I’ll be adding more items – especially cosmetics & clothes – in the next few weeks. Just not tomorrow: I’m heading to Verona by myself for the weekend! Maybe drop off some “Letters to Juliet”… Yes. […]
