    NYC Highlights

    Hi everyone!   Today I bring you my New York city guide: everything I've done, seen and eat. It took a while, as I was procrastinating going through the thousands of photos (literally) from my family trip. For reference we stayed in 28th street in Korea Town and we loved it! We found it very safe and quiet, but also at walking distance from most places, so I totally recommend that area. DAY 1   The first day in the city was very chilled, since we were tired first the endless flights and, to be honest, completely KO by 9pm due to jet lag. We walked to Bryant Park where…

    10×10 CITY VACATION

    Hi everyone! I've been watching some videos on the 10 pieces, 10 outfits challenges (The Anna Edit is the boss) and I got inspired. So here are my choices of 10 pieces, bags not included, that match perfectly for a lot of outfit choices! I find it perfect if you're packing for a trip, as I've never been a light packer. So I'm hoping this will keep me for jamming my entire clothes in a carry-on (guilty)! The trick to nail this is to choose more classic pieces in the same colour family (neutrals in my case). Bonus: throw one "odd" piece in the mixture just for fun, like the…

    TOP SS TRENDS | SÍLVIA

    Now it's my turn to talk about the Spring/Summer trends that most speak to me. The color block looks are apparently here to stay and I am all for it, so are the full white/ecru looks: keep 'em coming! However, there are other more subtle trends that kinda never left but have been slowly taking over our closets and instagram feeds. Here are my favorites (click on the pictures for the links): UTILITY JACKETS/SHIRTS/JUMPSUITS Perfect for those (that like me) are a bit sick of blazers and require a somewhat fresher outwear for spring or summer. Not as wearable in a corporate setting I must admit, but who cares? I'm…

    NEW IN | GLOSSIER

    Hi everyone! After a little blog break, we're back 🙂 My recent trip to New York had a mandatory stop at te Glossier Flagship in Soho. The store was so cool and, honestly, I felt like buying everything. I ended up selecting four things: Haloscope in Quartz, Boy Brow in Brown, Cloud Paint in Beam and Generation G in Cake. The veredict: I caved into the hype and loved everything! My favorite thing about these products is how effortlessly they apply and how fresh and healthy they make you look. Definitely a Glossier fan now and I can't wait to go back to pick up more products. Next on my wishlist…

    WHAT TO PACK BEAUTY-WISE

    I’m going on my next trip very soon, so I thought about showing my skincare and toiletries essentials. This list doesn’t change much whether it’s just a weekend break or a longer vacation. I will say that the choices of products have been made so that it takes the smallest space possible (I decant a lot of things to travel bottles, and use these), but still keeping my routine. For my go to makeup you can check this post. FACE To remove the makeup, I recently bought the makeup remover cloth from Primark. It works like a charm and is such a space saver! Just wet it with some warm…
