HAPPY EASTER!

Hi followers! How are you? I’m fine :) I’m very happy because on Wednesday I passed the test to get my driving license and on Tuesday I’ll start driving sooo please stay at home because I don’t want to hurt anybody ahah.

To celebrate I decided to go shopping with a friend of mine, actually one of my BFFs (otherwise she’ll be offended). We went to H&M and I bought a pair of black loafers with some silver and golden studs (http://www.hm.com/us/product/07618?article=07618-C), a sweater that is perfect for spring (http://www.hm.com/us/product/06829?article=06829-G) and a pair of pants (http://www.hm.com/us/product/01559?article=01559-B), both khaki-green. I think it’s a cute outfit, what do you think?

This is the nail art I’ve done for Easter. It’s easy and cute. I used a pistache green from OPI (Gargantuan Green Grape) and two nail polishes from KIKO (Holographic Nail Lacquer n. 401 and n. 402). Do you like it?

WISH ME LUCK!

Hi peeps! I am a bit worried because tomorrow I’m going to take my First Certificate Exam..argh! I hope everything will be ok but keep finger crossed!

As I told you I am nervous so what is the best way to relax? In my opinion it’s write a new post on my blog. In these days I’ve tried two nail arts and a new nail polish.

Talking about the first one, it was for S. Paddy. I didn’t upload any pics because it was quite bad. By the way, this is the video I took inspiration from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmkZbglUOBw

Then I decided to try a nail art for spring and I used bright colors and a sponge. Hope you’ll like it!

Yesterday afternoon I was in the city center and I wanted to buy something for myself so I went to Sephora and I bought my first OPI nail polish. It’s a super cute pistachio green (it’s called Gargantuan Green Grape) and I love it!

NOTW

In case you’ve missed it or you don’t have Instagram, this is my last mani. I know it seems I have a green nail polish but it’s Tiffany (sorry, light sucks).
I forgot to tell you about the cross ring I got from Claire’s in Madrid. It’s the only thing I had the time to buy and I love it. I think it’s my fav ring at the moment, together with the Love ring (that you’ll probably see in my next NOTW).
Have a nice week! Love, A.

Guess who’s back?MEEEEE!

Hi! How’s going? Last Saturday night I landed in Milan-Linate after spending five days in Madrid with my classmates and I really liked it. It’s a beautiful city with a lot of wonderful museums (I loved the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza collections, they were soooo amazing!). I’m still tired because we walked a lot but it was worth it. I ate junk food for most of the time so I’ll surely be on a diet for some time.

As you probably saw on Instagram, when I was in Spain I tried one of the nail polishes I got from Kiko, the sugar mat effect and it’s kinda cute because it gives a strange feeling if you touch it. Talking of nails, tomorrow it’s San Patrick’s day and spring is getting closer so I’ve decided to do a nail art. Stay tuned ;)

Surfing on the web I found the weirdest celebrity beauty habits and I thought it would’ve been funny to share them with you. Obviously everybody has a habit or two that we don’t tell anyone else for fear of being embarrassed. But these are very unique and unusual..

Karl Lagerfield, the famous fashion designer, told Harper’s Bazaar magazine that he sleeps for exactly seven hours, no matter what time he goes to bed.

The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton spends upwards $17000 on beauty products and procedures a year, but there is something more interesting. In fact, according to reports, she slathers on a cream that contains bee-sting venom. It’s said to be an organic alternative to botox.

Tom Ford, another famous fashion designer, thinks a lot about the appearance. That’s why he takes an average of five baths a day.

The actress Cameron Diaz, according to various sources, prefers to wash her face with bottled Evian water. I’d like to see her grocery bill!

Talking about actors with strange habits, Tom Cruise has a very particular one: he uses a technique borrowed from Japanese geishas who used the nightingale excrements as exfoliants, Sounds disgusting but it seems working, he looks younger, doesn’t he?

That’s all for today, I’ll come back with something news soon.

Love, A.

Madrid here I come!

Hi followers! How are you? I’m very tired because it’s midnight and I’m still awake but also very happy because tomorrow (or better, later) I’ll take a plane and I’ll go to Madrid on a school trip. I’ve just finished packing and I hope I haven’t forgotten anything! By the way I wanted to talk about the new nail polishes I got from Kiko on Saturday. I downloaded a 20% off coupon from Facebook and as soon as I could, I went to the mall. I got a beautiful pink (n 289, I used it in my last NOTW), a yellow crackle (n 600, I’ll try it when I’ll be in Madrid so you’ll find a post here or on Instagram @allegoricalle, if I’ll have an Internet connection) and two from the new collections: mirror and sugar mat. The mirror effect (n 616) is the other one I’ve used to do my mani yesterday and I have to admit that I love it: I’ve seen a lot of pic of this type of nail lacquer and I wanted to try it too. The second one is sugar mat nail polish (n 636) and I’ve never heard of it before but it seems very cute so I took it (it’s the same color of Tiffany). I’ll bring it with me and, if I’ll have enough time, I will do a nail art with it.

I’ve seen a lot of pictures from Paris Fashion Week and there are some new F/W collections that I like very much. I’ve decided that as soon as all the Fashion Weeks end, I’ll do a recap of the pieces I liked the most. 

Next week it’ll write a post I’ve prepared some days ago with some curiosities from the world of fashion and also some of my favorite looks of the most known fashion bloggers who were at the Fashion Weeks.

Are you interested in them? Then stay tuned (and wish me luck for my short holiday)! Love, A.

I’m back!

I’m still alive after this week (thank’s God!). So I decided to do this cute and easy nail art with two of the four nail polishes I got yesterday from Kiko. If you want to find out something interesting, stay tuned because tomorrow I’ll post a lot of news. Love, A.
