Something weird called nail art

Here it is: the nail post that I've been talking about. Finally!

So, I loooove nail art. I mean LOVE LOVE! Nail art is just like jewelry, it is always a perfect detail for an outfit and there are so many different designs that you won't ever get bored! Best part is that they are quite easy to do by yourself if you have the right supplies. I usually buy my polishes from regular clothing stores such as H&M (yeah, I kind of buy everything from there... If they only sold food...) but all the glitters and highlighting things are just from different craft shops. So, you don't have to use harebrained amount of money to get your nails done! If you just use your imagination, you can make dotting tool from a staple or a mixing bowl from an easter egg. I often seek for nail art inspiration from the internet but I always like to add something of own to my designs so that my nails would be "unique"

But now, here they are, the best of my nail art designs. Sorry for the bad quality, these pics are from my instagram (which you are free to check out from here: @sennav). If you want to know how I have done any of these, just comment below! I would love to teach some nail art to you! Actually...I've been thinking, should I start to post tutorials in here? Not just nail art, but some DIY and maybe some beauty tips..? Let me know what you think!

March Favorites

1. Golden is the key word when it comes to my jewelry preference. It just looks so good with everything and makes my skin look better! Nowadays, I don't use too much of showy necklaces and stuff but I really like to use some little things like ear cuffs to spice up my outfits.

2. I found a very beautiful toilet bag from H&M that has a Gatsby styled golden pattern on it. It was way too cool to be hidden in the toilet closet forever, so I decided to test if it could be used as a purse too. Well, it looked gorgeous and no one could tell it was actually a toilet bag. Perfect!

3. I have kind of fall for the style of the 80's (I'll tell more about this later) and my red waist belt is just like stolen from that lovely decade of the LSD colors! It looks damn good with jersey dresses.

4. I'm so in love with this H&M skirt! It's so girly, beautiful and the floral pattern is just perfect for spring. I just want wear it everyday!!

5. I have a bad habit of forgetting old bags when I buy a new one, that's why I haven't been using this patent leather bag for ages, but now that I found it, I just can't keep my hands of it. It's so classy and modern!

6. Now that spring has arrived, it is time to burn your dark depressing clothes and find some colors to lift up your mood to the happy mode. That's exactly why I picked up this wild red blouse couple weeks ago. The fabric is very light so it will be just fine for the summer too!

7. Pastels are the colors of spring! I've been using mostly coral and mint tones on eyes and peach on lips and cheeks, they give a fresh and natural look for the sunny days. In addition, I have been wearing several layers of mascara since I am bit of a fan of long lashes right now. And to have a little party everyday, I used some lilac glitter on my nails. (And yes, I know... The nail post that I've been talking about for ages... It is seriously coming soon! Sorry...)

8. I think Clubmasters are the sunglasses of the coming summer, or at least they should be because they are just so freakingly cool that I want to wear them even when it's dark outside! I have always loved classic frames and Clubmasters are just perfect!

9. Like I have(n't) told you, I actually have afro curls so I have to use straightener everyday to keep it like this and to keep my hair from falling out of my head, I use this amazing oil thing. It moisturizes and makes my hair shiny and healthy looking. I definitely recommend it.

10. To keep my golden line on clothing, I have also used a pair of golden heels! They make any outfit look glamorous and ready for partyin'. Love them!

Warby Parker Spring 2014 Collection

Spring is here!

The sun is shining at last to our cold Winterland and the dark times are hopefully over. To celebrate these lovely warm days, I want to give you a glimpse of this spring's eyewear trends and I think Warby Parker's Spring collection is perfect for it!

If you aren't familiar with Warby Parker, it is an American eyewear brand who sells vintage styled frames online. They have also few stores in The United States, for example in New York and Los Angeles. Warby Parker's glasses are affordable because they design them in-house and in order to avoid retail costs, they don't use a third party, but sell their products directly to customers.

Warby Parker's Spring 2014 collection includes eight new shapes in six different colors and most of the them are available for both women and men, so I bet everyone can find new look for the coming summer. The frames are classically styled and the color palette is very down-to-earth, spiced with a few color splashes. Check out the whole collection here!

Here are my favorites from the collection:

BURKE - Tennessee Whiskey

KIMBALL - Marzipan Tortoise

MARCEL - Aurora 

 MARCEL - Aurora

REILLY - Whiskey Tortoise
