HOW TO: My Brow Routine With Benefit Cosmetics
Eyebrows are one of the most important features that you have as they are necessary to frame your face whether you’re wearing makeup or not. In order to make sure that you always look your best, you should take the time to sufficiently take care of your eyebrows. Today I'll show you some products I use to enhance my aesthetics.

I like to change my brow routine from time to time. Sometimes i'm more likely to use a brow pencil or switch it up for a brow powder. 

This Brow Zing's from benefit cosmetics is really good because it comes in a mini kit which contains: eyebrow powder & wax, mini slant tweezers and dual-sided extendable applicator is everything you need to sculpt, shape and fill brows. I use this product when I feel like I have more time to do my brows-(it's a great kit to carry on your bag).

I use this benefit ultra-fine eyebrow pencil to draw a few hair-like strokes just to fill-in the sparse areas of my brows.
In this post I'm wearing all the products listed:

My favorite 4 Wearable Spring Trends
Happy Wednesday loves!!
SPRING is here!! From the runways to streetstyle, I’ve rounded up my top 4 favorite wearable trends for spring, with all the shoplinks you need to jumpstart your new wardrobe!!
1 - Ruffles for spring…again? groundbreaking right?! Once again, ruffles are going stronger than ever and I’m not complaining! I’m a huge fan of ruffles for spring and summer, I love how feminine and romantic they look with any outfit. 

             SHOP HERE: ZARA (here) PARKER BLACK (here) MISSGUIDED (here)

2 - These days embroidery is on everything..denim, bags, jackets, sneakers..you name it!! I love the effect embroidery has on clothing because it adds so much depth and color into an outfit and makes it more fun!
         SHOP HERE: ZARA (here) PRETTYLITTLETTHING (here) GUCCI (here)

3 - This spring, stripes are everywhere from vibrant, graphic, horizontal, vertical..and my personal favorite, banker stripes! I love banker stripes because they are more subtle and versatile making them easier to experiment with. Inspired by Wall Street but tweaked & tinkered to work for seventh Avenue. 

              SHOP HERE: MISSPAP (here)  STORETS (here) SELFRIDGES (here)

4 - Metallic Finish - Urban mermaids or space warriors? The metallic finish is also a trend for this spring and we can see the presence of the iridescent texture and shiny accents over the runways at Kenzo, Maison Margiela & Chanel. 



What will you be wearing this season?<3

Peggy Porschen Facade

I am all about cuteness so the pink, princessy decor truly made me shed a tear of joy upon entering. I got lost in the decor. It is amazingly beautiful inside. Lots of pastel shades of happy. Then comes the pastry which are picture perfect like in a magazine. 


I spent more time looking at these pieces like a museum than I did deciding what to order.

 This place is all over Instagram & Pinterest - a bloggers favorite place. I happened to meet one of my favorite bloggers Marianna Hewitt . 


My sister in law Melanie accompanied me and we started by trying the the Raspberry & lemon cake. Then we also tried the Strawberry Champagne cupcake with a cappuccino. 

The customer service was beyond friendly.
Thank you Hannah for having us. It was a delicious morning.

Beauty Favorites of The Month - Tainara Picks
Who’s ready for Spring already?
This month I will feature my beauty favorites and essentials for a natural, glowing makeup look!
Let's see:


This Naked Skin Foundation - has been one of my favorites for a while. It gives my skin such a beautiful silky finish that looks super natural. 

This NARS multi-purpose stick for - eyes, cheeks, lips and body it's a very dynamic highlight for all skin tones. I really love this one. I'm currently using it as highlighter and eyeshadow when I'm in a rush. 

Carol Joy - Pure Collagen Spray is my everyday go to product!!  It can be used at any time, after cleansing and before moisturizing or after moisturizing. I also use it to finish, set or refresh my makeup and provides a really dewy and ‘glowy’ look to the skin. 


I usually don't go too crazy with the shades on my eyes. I love these eyeshadows from SIGMA beauty - the colors are perfect for a day or a night look. 


Spring screams for pink and coral-ish shades right? These are the lippies I love to wear during the Spring. The YSL lipstick is very hydrating and moisturizing and gives a glossy effect to your lips. On the other hand the MAC liquid lipstick is very matte and lasts forever on your lips. 


What beauty product are you obsessed with? Let me know <3

Afternoon Tea At Sketch - London
My Loves,

If you follow me on Snapchat you must have noticed that I spent my Friday afternoon at Sketch -  which is one of the most notorious and well-known afternoon tea establishments here in London, and the beautiful Gallery space makes the perfect location for tea and cakes.
Sketch London is located on 9 Conduit Street, London.  You can make an online reservation by clicking here.

The Gallery is so pink and velvety and just, fancy - I'm totally obsessed with the interior decor. The table settings are quirky and totally fit with the plushness of the furniture - a true Barbie's dream house. I would happily take tea at Sketch every day for the rest of my life haha 
You start by selecting your choice of champagne and tea - I must say it was the Gatsby style champagne glasses.

Would you like more sandwiches? 
Show–stopping cake tower packed with little cakes, pastries, sweets and mini sandwiches of all varieties - It was perfect to match the jasmine pearl tea I ordered. Every little cake and sandwich was perfectly placed and I couldn't wait to dig in. 

Those Infamous Sketch Toilets...
Make sure you take a trip to the toilets where multi colored ceiling lights set the scene for egg shaped pods that talk to you as you enter. I’ve never seen anything like it!

 Every detail for the Sketch afternoon tea was perfect. Overall my experience at Sketch was simply wonderful. The staff and the thoughtful little details throughout the restaurant made me feel well special. 
Thank you Ellen & Sketch Team for having me and making my afternoon so perfect - I'll definitely come back with my friends.

Get The Look - Sexy Red
My loves,
Today's post is about something that most of us are obsessed with -makeup. It can change you a little or a lot. Want full-on glamour? No problem. Edginess? Easy. Instant cool? Consider it done.
Today I'll show you how you can create a simple and chic makeup look and what products you can use to achieve it.
Check it out:

This look is all about dramatizing lips. The key is to make them contrast with the other features, so everything is kept subtle yet sculpted. The Bobbi Brown highlighter is used to enhance the bridge of the nose, the inner corners of the eyes and the cheek bones. The Vernis a Levres Vinyl cream in rouge is the star product; with its intensity and gloss it adds exceptional high-shine red to the lips.

LFWF With Me - Latest Hot Trends
My loves,
London Fashion Weekend ended and I am super happy that it went super well.  
Today I'll share with you this amazing event which is always a super experience, I get butterflies just thinking about it. 
I wore all black to attend the show! I chose a beautiful lace Escada top from their latest collection, Zara pants and Michael Kors coat. I paired it with a cute embellished Escada bag with Stuart Weitzman heels which left the look very modern.

What's in my bag? 
The show was sensational. For this collection micro florals was completely the reference, which left the pieces with a young and fresh touch. The highlights were also the shoulder - with straps and sleeves and reinvented ruffles - this season are not so romantic but it came with a cooler and sexier effect. What did you think?

Silky Hair With Carol Joy - London
My Loves,
Today’s post is all about haircare! Taking care of your hair is not always an easy task, I must confess that sometimes I get lazy and don't give my strands the attention that it needs. That’s why today I decided to share with you my experience here at the Carol Joy Salon which is located at one of my favorite Hotels - The Dorchester. 
Check it out:

Since my hair gets extremely dry, we started with a steam treatment which restore moisture and shine to the hair. 
To finalize we did their signature blow dry and my hair is looking and feeling so silky smooth!
 I was really amazed with the results and how soft and silky my hair felt! I’m definitely IN LOVE! haha

They also offered me their collagen spray. As I am obsessed with skincare this is very exciting! It claims to use world first cutting edge technology to rejuvenate and revitalize all skin types and has some pretty good clinical testing stats behind it. 
I was also very amazed with the decor of the space which is very elegant and sophisticated.
Thank you Carol Joy London Team for taking care of me today.
See you on my next post <3

Tata Naka Autumn / Winter 2018 Presentation for London Fashion week
Hey loves,

So today I went to Tata Naka's presentation and I just felt like I was in Africa for a second :)
This collection channels and embodies the African continent. 

The designer presented a flowery autumn/winter 2018 collection at The ICA for London Fashion Week.Using decoration and fashion as a vehicle of self-expression, this collection places the practice of tribal body paint into functional prints punctuated with wild flower-inspired accessories and colorful tartans. 

 The color palette anchors itself within nature, with volcanic rock tones and flashes of color.  In this collection we can also see various different ribs and African-inspired badges and emblems. Tata Naka  has included animal print to the footwear which brings the touch of nature to the collection.

I hope you are enjoying my coverage so far. See you on Sunday for The London Fashion Weekend!
Love you <3
