April Favorites

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

We're done with April and let's welcome May with a monthly favorites post. April was an odd month but I'll share my favorites anyway, let's do this!

I'm a huge Anime lover, but I can also be quite picky when it comes to it, so when I came across this specific Anime Movie I was quite skeptical but after watching it... oh dear! Kimi no Na wa (Your Name) has to be one of the most beautiful things that I've ever seen! The entire concept about the Anime, the body swapping and the entire story was just divine. Not to mention the illustration! I highly recommended this movie, even if you're not an Anime fan.

I've been binge watching YouTubers lately and I found two that are pretty amazing! The first one is Jessica Vill also known as Jbunzie on YouTube, I found her Betty Boop Transformation on my recommendations videos. Her videos are all about makeup transformations and she's so good at it! I'm so glad I found her channel.

The second YouTuber is edgier but super cool chic called Kiera Rose. There's something about her British accent and her personality that makes me want to watch her videos all day! She's has a lot of beautiful tattoos too, which she frequently talks about.

Beginning of April, I went to Primark, I always like to check the Home Section and I found these Led Fairy Lights for only 3€ (bargain!) so I got them and I must say, my nights have been so relaxing and the best thing is, if your light goes down, no need to worry, these have batteries. All I have to say is... best 3€ of my life so far!

And that's it for this month! Hope you guys liked it and learned something new. Let's enjoy May now!
See you soon!

The Swan Dress

Friday, 7 April 2017

Once my brother told me about this amazing website called Dresslily where you can buy Vintage Style dresses really cheap! Of course, this is Korean Sizes so I had to look up on eBay for some alternatives and I found this beauty for only 12$! I was a bit afraid because I'm quite big on the chest and arms but this dress fits amazingly!

This was the first time wearing it and I don't know why I was so afraid to do so, it's such a beautiful dress, it looks amazing even tho I'm a petite girl (5'1) the long skirt looks on point.

I couldn't resist taking some photos of it, although one day I want to do a proper photoshoot with it (these were taken with an iPhone).

I can't wait to find more Vintage Style dresses like this one, they are absolutely gorgeous and super comfortable to wear, what else can you ask for?
You can find this and many other dresses on eBay by simply type down Vintage Plus Size Dress. Make sure you measure your body before ordering, mine was a 3XL.

Take care!

March Favorites

Friday, 7 April 2017

march favorites

It's the 7th of April and I'm ready to share with my March Favorites, there's not a lot of things and I'm not sure if I'll have monthly favorites every month but we'll deal with it as we go along hi hi.

lord nelson

So the first thing on my list and I believe I got this in the beginning of March, it's Cherry Tea! I love Cherries, it's my favorite fruit and when I found this tea I couldn't stop! It's so delicious and sweet on its own. I highly recommend this particular brand Lord Nelson, you can find it in Lidl.

Benefit POREfessional

Next is my Benefit POREfessional and... oh my gosh, I forgot how much I used to love this product. If your makeup tends to get flaky as the day goes by you need this primer! Because a little goes a long way, the travel size was enough for the entire month.

Roller Lash Mascara

When I bought the Benefit POREfessional I also got the Roller Lash Mascara. Again I bought the travel size because I wasn't sure if this mascara was going to work for me. It's perfect! Best mascara I ever had! Highly recommended!

Bésame Lipstick

Also, April was the month that I bought my first Bésame Lipstick and I have to say, I'm SOOOOO HAPPY with it! it doesn't dry your lips, it's super easy to apply and it has a vintage design, how perfect is that? The first one I got was 1922 Blood Red and then a week after I tried it I got the 1941 Victory Red. I can't wait to buy the 1952 Wild Orchid and the 1963 Portrait Pink!


Finally, let's wrap this month with my newest Clover Circular Needles, it's 3mm with a 40cm cable, perfect for scarves! I absolutely love Clover Needles, they are amazing to work with and super light as well!

That's it, thank you for reading I let me know if you want to see more posts like this one or a more detailed review of a specific product.

See you soon!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them | Review

Thursday, 23 February 2017

Today I'm here to review the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, because I've been a devoted Potterhead since I was 11 years old and now, with 27, I'm still waiting for my Hogwarts letter.

The first time I heard about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was in this little tiny red book that I got together with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Quidditch Through the Ages back in 2001.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

So when I heard about the movie I ran to watch it and oh my gosh, I never thought it would be such a magical and nostalgic experience! So without further ado, here's why I absolutely LOVED Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

First of all... Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander. What a brilliant decision, he's the most adorable, caring and socially awkward wizard you could ever ask for! He looks at everything with such an interest and curiosity, it's simply contagious. He's loving personality made the movie even more magical!

Second... Let's talk about WARDROBE! I mean, come on! It's New York City in 1926, the roaring twenties. Everything is so casually glamorous. I'm so passionate about the 20's fashion, it was such a beautiful era. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is nominated for Costume Design and honestly, I hope it wins because it was just beautiful!

Third... Can we just talk about the fact that the President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America is a BLACK WOMAN! Amazing! I absolutely loved it!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fourth... The soundtrack, I have no shame admitting that I'm currently listening on my Spotify as I write this review. The music is so important in a movie and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Soundtrack is simply magical!


Fifth... Adult Wizards and Witches! Don't get me wrong I love love love Harry Potter but it was so nice seeing adults perform magic without thinking about the spell. Although I would love if they had more wand action. Still, it was lovely to see adults in action and speaking about wands, can we just take a look at how BEAUTIFUL the wands are??? I'm so buying the Fantastic Beasts Wand Set from Noble Collection!


Sixth... Queenie Goldstein! From her very first entrance, I was bewitched by her. She embraces the 1920s flapper with exceptional grace, so I ended up developing a big girl crush on her. Queenie was such a strong character full of potential that we'll hopefully see in the future movies and... SHE CAN READ MINDS! How cool is that??

Seventh... Johnny Depp! I'm a HUGE fan of Johnny's work as an actor, I love his movies and I love how he always plays such unique characters. I got so excited with his appearance that in the end!!

Eighth... the beasts are truly absolutely fantastic!! The creatures were so beautiful and when you have creatures like the Niffler and Pickett you know you'll laugh a LOT! 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

And finally... Hufflepuff! I'm a proud Slytherin but I was so happy that Newt was a Hufflepuff, it was just right! I love all houses but Hufflepuff house is just so humble and caring. Also as a Knitter, I was raving at Newt's scarf, I'm so gonna knit it!


In the end, I absolutely loved the movie, I can't believe that we have four more to go, it just makes me so happy.
I hope you liked this long (but totally worth it) review! Thank you, J. K. Rowling I owe you so much!

Knitting vs. Anxiety?

Tuesday, 12 January 2016

Hello, everyone! I started knitting in November and suddenly I find myself with a new hobby and spend loads of money on yarns.

One thing that I noticed with knitting was how my anxiety reacted to it, recently I had so many anxiety attacks and usually I’m really good at hiding them, I just go to the bathroom I’ll do some breathing exercises and focus on something completely different and in a matter of 5-10 minutes I’m ready to take on the world again.


However, in the past months, with my knitting projects, I noticed that my anxiety was still there but not on the spotlight as often. So after researching the benefits of knitting, I came across some conclusions that I can relate with.

It gives you a sense of pride!
So true! When my mom taught me the knitting basics I was so frustrated! All I said was “This is so hard! I’ll never be able to do this!” and that being said, kudos to my brother that immediately told me that he wanted a Ravenclaw scarf from the Harry Potter movie. So after a few videos on YouTube and a LOT of practice, I started this huge scarf. When I finished it, me and my brother looked at it like it was magic! I felt so proud of myself, it will always be my first big project :)

Knitting can be so relaxing!
A lot of simple projects can be very repetitive and with that you can simply zone out and enjoy little things. For me, there’s nothing better that knitting and watch Sherlock’s Series on Netflix.

Bye bye stress!
I consider myself a stressful person, which is logic because I have anxiety, stress and anxiety are like mean lovers, so the rhythmic motions and sense of focus that knitting requires can help distract from symptoms of anxiety and stress.

And that's it! I really love this new hobby, it has developed my creativity and brought a lot of benefits to my mental health.

Do you have any therapeutic hobbies? Let me know in the comments below :)

Imperfection is beauty
madness is genius 
and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous 
than absolutely boring.
