‘CAUSE BEING A REDHEAD’S COOL

Hi peeps! How are you all?

I’m fine but I feel different…and that’s because I’m a redhead now!

If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, follow me @allegoricalle), you have already seen my new look.

When I went to my hairstylist, my idea was a bit different. And then he asked me “what about red?” and I said “hell yeah let’s do it!”.

It’s my first time ever, I’ve never dome something similar. But I love it. What do you think about it?

 

Ciao a tutti! Come state?

Io sto bene ma devo ammettere che mi sento diversa…forse per il mio nuovo colore?

Se mi seguite su Instagram (se non lo fate, sono @allegoricalle), avrete già visto il cambiamento.

Quando sono andata dal parrucchiere, avevo in mente qualcosa di diverso ma quando mi ha chiesto “che ne dici di un bel rosso?”, ho subito pensato “facciamolo!”.

È la prima volta che faccio qualcosa di simile ma lo adoro. E voi che ne pensate?

Love, A.

WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE?

Hi peeps! How’s going?

Valentine’s day is coming…are you ready?

I don’t know what I’m going to do. I think that I’m going to spend the night out with all my single friends, having a lot of fun…BECAUSE WE ARE FREE!

By the way here there are some cool ideas for your makeup, your hair and your nails and also a couple of cute DIY. Don’t forget to check also the posts (here, here and here) I did last year about it!

I hope you’ll spend the day with your sweetheart. Have fun!

 

Ciao! Come va?

San Valentino è dietro l’angolo…siete pronti?

Io, francamente, non so ancora cosa farò ma penso passerò la serata con le mie amiche single e ci divertiremo un sacco!

Ho comunque pensato di suggerirvi qualche idea per il make up, l’acconciatura e le vostre mani e, soprattutto, un paio di DIY molto carini. Per altre idee non dimenticatevi di andare sui post dell’anno scorso (qui, qui e qui)!

Spero passerete la giornata con la vostra dolce metà. E mi raccomando, divertitevi!

Love, A.

A DAY OF RELAXATION

Hi peeps! How are you?

I’m fine. Actually, I feel very well.

I gave my second exam at uni yesterday and it went very well and I’m super happy about that. As I told you in my last post, I studied so hard and I’m proud of it.

I took a morning off, just laying in bed and doing nothing at all and tomorrow I’ll start a new adventure.

Yep, I have to do another exam. I hope it’ll be easier than this one because I’m tired of studying. I want some free time, I want to go shopping with my friends and I want to go to Warhol and Kandinskij shows at Palazzo Reale here in Milan. And, obviously, I want to write a lot of new posts on my lovely blog.

First of all, this was my outfit for New Year’s Eve.

Outfit: Promod dress, Calzedonia stockings, Zara shoes, Zara headband

Manicure: OPI-Alpine Snow, Essence-02 Circus Confetti

I have to admit that I was quite sparkling, I know. But it was New Year’s Eve and you must be sparkling, mustn’t you?

I had a lovely time with my friends, we spent the night at a friend’s lake house and the day after we went for a walk in the town. Thaaaanks guys, I had a lot of fun!

On Monday night there was the Stylight event in Berlin hosted by the amazing Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad).

Kenza Zouiteni is the most influential fashion blogger. The most promising blog is the one of Negin Mirsaleh from Nederlands, the best style is Aida Domenech’s one (Spain) and the most creative blog is the one of Louise Ebel form France. After the event it was a fantastic afterparty that gave the start to the fourteenth Berlin Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

I really liked Irene Colzi’s and Negin Mirsaleh’s outfits.

Talking about outfits, what do you think of what were the stars wearing at the Golden Globes?

Some of them was amazing, like Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain, Kate Beckinsale, Mila Kunis and Zoey Deschanel. They were just perfect. But look at Zoe Saldana and Jennifer Lawrence. Yeah. Please, try again.

I love Jennifer, she’s beautiful, she’s a good actress and she is very fun. But that dress? REALLY? C’mon you can do something better, Jen! (Look what I found LOL)

Last week there were also the People’s Choice Awards. I literally loved Nina Dobrev’s dress and her hairstyle was just..wow!

She won the price for best screen chemistry together with her ex boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. They were stunning. Can’t wait til January 23rd for new The Vampire Diaries episodes.

And in your opinion which was the best/worst look of these events?

Let me know here or on Twitter or on Facebook and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!

 

Ciao a tutti! Come state?

Io tutto ok. A dire la verità, molto più che ok.

Ieri ho dato il mio secondo esame ed è andato molto bene. Ne sono davvero felice.  Come vi ho scritto nel mio ultimo post, ho studiato davvero tanto e sono davvero orgogliosa del risultato.

Diciamo che oggi mi sono presa una mattina di pausa, sono rimasta a letto con una tazza di tè caldo e non facendo assolutamente nulla. Purtroppo da domani si ricomincia con lo studio intenso.

Infatti voglio dare un altro esame ai primi di febbraio. Francamente spero sia più facile di questo perché sono veramente stanca di studiare tutto il giorno. Vorrei del tempo libero, vorrei andare a fare shopping con le mie amiche, ma soprattutto vorrei andare a vedere le mostre di Warhol e Kandinskij a Palazzo Reale a Milano. E, ovviamente, mi piacerebbe scrivere tanti post per il mio blog.

Sono stata via per un po’ quindi mi sembra doveroso recuperare.

Prima di tutto, ecco il mio outfit per Capodanno.

Outfit: vestito Promod, collant Calzedonia, scarpe Zara, cerchietto Zara

Manicure: OPI-Alpine Snow, Essence-02 Circus Confetti

Devo ammettere che ero veramente scintillante ma era Capodanno e in questa serata è quasi obbligatorio essere così sparkling o sbaglio?

Mi sono divertita davvero tantissimo. Abbiamo festeggiato nella casa al lago di un’amica e il giorno dopo, dopo esserci ripresi, siamo andati a fare un giro in paese. Grazie ragazzi, è stata una serata fantastica!

Lunedì sera si è tenuto a Berlino l’evento di Stylight per i migliori fashion bloggers, presentato dall’affascinante Chiara Ferragni (The Blond Salad).

Kenza Zouiteni è la blogger più influente. Il blog più promettente è quello di Negin Mirsaleh dai Paesi Bassi, il miglior stile è quello della spagnola Aida Domenech e il blog più creativo è quello di Louise Ebel (Francia). Dopo l’evento c’è stato un fantastico afterparty che ha dato inizio alla quattordicesima Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week a Berlino.

In particolare mi sono piaciuti i look di Irene Colzi (Irene’s Closet) e di Negin Mirsaleh.

Sempre parlando di outfit, che ne pensate di quello che hanno indossato le stelle ai Golden Globes?

Alcuni erano veramente bellissimi. Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain, Kate Beckinsale, Mila Kunis e Zoey Deschanel erano semplicemente perfette. Invece, Zoe Saldana e Jennifer Lawrence hanno toppato alla grande.

Io amo Jennifer, è bellissima, è un’ottima attrice ed è molto simpatica. Quel vestito? DAVVERO? Dai Jen, so che sai fare meglio di così! (guardate anche cosa circola sul web LOL)

La settimana scorsa ci sono stati anche i People’s Choice Awards. Ho adorato il vestito e l’acconciatura di Nina Dobrev. Perfetta come sempre.

Ha vinto il premio per la miglior chimica sullo schermo insieme all’ormai ex fidanzato Ian Somerhalder. Non vedo l’ora di rivederli nei nuovi episodi di Vampire Diaries a partire dal 23 gennaio.

E secondo voi quale è stato il miglior/peggior outfit a questi eventi?

Fatemelo sapere qui o su Twitter o su Facebook e non dimenticatevi di seguirmi su Instagram!

Love, A.

L’ultimo dell’anno si sta avvicinando. Siete pronti?

Ieri pomeriggio ho optato per una pausa studio diversa dal solito e sono andata a fare un giro in centro, dove ho acquistato tutto ciò che mi serviva per l’outfit da sfoggiare in questa fantastica serata. Ho deciso che non vi darò un’anteprima, come faccio di solito. Sarà una sorpresa. Sappiate solo che sarò piuttosto scintillante.

HALLOWEEN-SOMEONE LIKES TO BITE

Halloween is just gone. What did you choose for your scary outfit?

I became a sexy vampire. I’m kinda obsessed with supernatural things.

My outfit was inspired by Katherine Pierce. She’s a bad vampire in The Vampire Diaries and I love her. She’s kinda aggressive so I decided to wear a pair of leather leggings and a blue blouse from H&M. Both my BFFs know that I love this tv series so they bought me Kathrine’s daylight necklace (vampire can walk during the day only with rings or necklaces like this that only a witch can create). It’s just beautiful!

I also curled my hair like her.

Talking about the make up, I took inspiration from some tutorials I found on YouTube. I mixed up all the elements I liked and that’s the result.

Here’s the links

I also made some fake blood (I ate it..it was pretty good actually)

Here’s the recipe I used.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 spoons of sugar
  • 3 spoons of water
  • 2 phial of red colorant
  • 1 spoon of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

Mix everything together. You can decide the compactness and the color adding some more flour, water or cocoa powder.

I put it both on my neck and near my mouth. You know, you have to feed to complete the transition. And I was a new-born vampire so I messed up a bit drying out my first victim. Do you like it?

Soooo did you have fun? How many candies did you eat? Send me pictures of your costumes! And as usual feel free to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Fancy and Fashiolistas.

 

 

Halloween è appena passato. E voi da cosa vi siete travestiti?

Io ho optato per un look da sexy vampira. Il sovrannaturale è un po’ la mia droga, devo ammetterlo.

Per l’outfit mi sono ispirata a Katherine Pierce. È una sexy e cattiva vampira della serie televisiva The Vampire Diaries che adoro. Ha un look piuttosto aggressivo che riflette il suo carattere e perciò ho deciso di indossare un paio di leggins in pelle e una camicetta blu di H&M. Ho abbinato un paio di francesine grigio tortora. Inoltre le mie migliori amiche sanno quanto io ami questa serie e, per il mio compleanno, hanno deciso di regalarmi la collana che Kathrine usa per camminare alla luce del sole (i vampiri possono camminare di giorno solo grazie ad anelli o collane create da streghe) e per questo le adoro. E amo anche la collana. È troppo bella!

Per essere più simile al personaggio ho anche usato un ferro per arricciare i capelli.

Per quanto riguarda il make up, invece, ho preso spunto da diversi tutorial che ho trovato su YouTube. Ho preso gli elementi che più mi piacevano e ho creato un look unico e spaventoso.

Ecco i link.

Ho anche preparato del sangue finto commestibile.

INGREDIENTI

  • 3 cucchiai di zucchero
  • 3cucchiai di acqua
  • 2 boccette di colorante
  • 1 cucchiaio di farina
  • 1 cucchiaino di cacao in polvere

Mescolare il tutto molto bene per evitare grumi. Ognuno può decidere se aggiungere acqua, cacao o farina in base ai propri gusti. Io ho preferito renderlo un pochino più denso e scuro.

Ne ho messo un po’ sia intorno ai segni del morso sul collo sia intorno alla bocca. Sapete, per completare la trasformazione mi sono dovuta nutrire. Perdonatemi, sono appena diventata una vampiretta e ho combinato un pasticcio prosciugando la mia prima vittima. Come vi sembra?

Vi siete divertiti? Quante caramelle avete divorato? Mandatemi foto dei vostri travestimenti e, come sempre, seguitemi su Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Fancy e Fashiolistas.

Love, A.

COCO+OUAT+HAUL+HAIR-TIPS+NEWS+GIVEAWAY

Hi my lovelies! I’m late. I know. But during the week-end I was pretty busy. In fact I finally found the topic I want to talk about during my final exam in June/July. When I told to my classmates what I was going to speak about, they burst out laughing. Actually I don’t mind what they think. Soooo, the winner is *drum roll* COCO CHANEL!

As I told you at the beginning of this beautiful experience, I started blogging because I literally love fashion. Talking about this paper, my teachers told me to pick up a topic that I really like. At first I thought about NYC (I freaking love that city) but last Friday I changed my mind. I haven’t decided yet what subjects I’m going to bring but I have to choose between Italian (D’Annunzio), English (Wilde), Science (minerals, Coco also created jewels) and Art (de Chirico’s mannequin). Can you help me please?

In addition I’ve just found out that Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld cast Keira Knightley to play Coco in his new short film to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first-ever Chanel boutique. The film, called “Once upon a time…”, will debut in Singapore on May 8th and you can watch it online on chanel-news.com. Can’t wait! In the meanwhile, watch the trailer here ;)

During the week-end I also went out with a friend of mine. We have known each other since we were children but we haven’t seen in years. Some time ago I discovered that we go to the same high school so in order to catch up on lost time we decided to have a coffee together and have shopping in the city center.

We went to Zara (but I didn’t get anything..) and to Sephora. Here I got a new foundation from Clinique called Stay-Matte Oil-Free (I watched a review on Youtube and I wanted to try it) and a gift for my mom about which I can’t tell anything because she reads my blog and I don’t want to spoil her the surprise (yes mom, I really got something for you for mom’s day).

I have to admit that we had a lovely afternoon and I hope we’re going to do that again asap.

Unfortunately here in Milan spring hasn’t sprung yet (sigh). These days were soooo rainy and my hair are flatter than usual. I thought it would’ve been nice to share with you some tips I found on Beautylish. Hope it’ll be useful for you too!

On the official H&M page on Facebook I discovered the new campaign with Beyoncè and I have to say that I love her! She’s amazing!

Talking about nails I bumped into this two super cute new designs. The first is from Ciatè while the second one is from Pupa. Which one is your favorite? I like them both!

Btw these are my NOTW. What do you think? This is the tutorial I took inspiration from. As usual, if you want to share with me yours nail arts, you can mention me on Twitter (@allegrapiccio) or on Instagram (@allegoricalle).

IMG-20130417-WA0001 IMG-20130417-WA0002

Last but not least I wanted to share with you a giveaway from Blasfemmes. Keep finger crossed!

I’m so sorry but I think I won’t be able to update anything for a few weeks. I hope you understand, school is keeping me  very busy and I have a lot of things to do. As soon as I can I will post a lot of interesting things.

Don’t miss me too much ;)

Love, A.

Valentine’s day – part 1

Hi people! How’s going? I hope everything’s fine. Unfortunately I’ve got flu and I have to stay at home for a few days :( One positive thing that happened is that it has been snowing since yesterday morning. It’s beautiful!

But let’s speak about something more important like S. Valentine’s day. Are you going to spend it with your boyfriend/girlfriend or are you going to party with your friends (like I’ll do, if I feel better)? In any case I thought it would have been nice to post some tips for your hair, your nails and your make up.

Let’s start with some cute updo’s&co. Hope you enjoy. Love, A.

hair

I have very fine and straight hair and I don’t want to spend a lot of time curling them. Luckily I found out this amazing tip. You just have to divide your hair into two parts, then twist each section and tie with a hair tie. Run your straighter/flat iron over both of the twist a few times. Untie twists, and you’re done! You’ll have beautiful beachy waves in less than five minutes.

In a few days I’ll post something about S. Valentine’s day. Further updates are on their way.

If you want you can also follow me on Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/allegoricalle/allegralovesfashion/), on Instagram (@allegoricalle) or on Fancy (http://www.thefancy.com/cinciallegra). Love, A.

News+shopping+ombré

Hi! Are you ready for some news? Here we are!

On Saturday I went to Milan with some friends and we saw a Picasso show at Palazzo Reale. It was amazing. Obviously you know I’m a shopaholic, so of course I couldn’t go to Milan and not buy anything. Unfortunately I didn’t have too much time.

First I went to H&M and I got a beautiful ombré clutch, two cute bracelets (one neon and one very sparkling), two big packs of silver and golden bracelets and a hair clip.

Then I went to Kiko and I took two Holographic Nail Lacquer, one pink (that I used to do my mani yesterday, hope you liked it) and one light blue. I freaking love them.

Immagine

I told you about the clutch. I’ll probably use it for an outfit on Saturday night (I’ll talk about it in a few days). So what do you think about ombré? Personally I like it very much, especially on my nails. Have you ever tried it on your nails or on your hair? Tell me about it because I’m too curious! Love, A.Immagine
