Blovember #6 Nasty Gal Sells Vintage Chanel

Nasty Gal released a collection of over 250 vintage Chanel pieces from our favorite decades: 80's and 90's. Of course the prices are a bit too salty but hey, it's Chanel, Vintage Chanel. I have to say I'm amazed by all the gorgeous things displayed (I crave for the time I'll have a budget for these things).

A Nasty Gal lançou uma colecção de mais de 250 peças vintage da Chanel das nossas décadas favoritas: 80's e 90's. Claro que os preços são um pouco salgadinhos mas pronto, é Chanel, Vintage Chanel. Tenho a dizer que estou maravilhada com todas as coisas mostradas (sonho com o dia em que terei orçamento para estas coisas).

Blovember #5 Apps I've Been Loving Lately


In case you didn't notice, this app is about food. I find it very useful on those days when inspiration is fading and you really want to try something new to cook. Here you can access to recipes from chefs all over the world in order to recreate their delicious masterpieces. My favorite section is breakfast as it is my favorite meal.

~OLIVE OFFICE HD~
This is a productivity app that is really helping me during college. You can import your files from your Dropbox or Google Docs and then you can edit them, save them as pdf, unzip files or create new ones. It also allows you to write little reminders so you never forget important stuff.

Another social network. What I really love about this app besides its non-mainstream existence, is the fact that it really inspires to capture beautiful shots and share them with the world in the best possible resolution. It also allows to edit the pictures with stunning filters and encourages to participate in "missions" a.k.a. picture contest.

Blovember #3 Low Budget Makeup Brands

One of my beauty philosophies, if you can call it that, is to spend some money in good quality skincare products so I can go more on the cheap side when it comes to makeup. This being said, here are some of my favorite low budget makeup brands that I absolutely trust. Below each brand there is an image of my favorite product from that brand.

The first makeup brand in Europe, Essence does not test on animals and bets on good quality products at a low budget price. Trendy and fun, this brand is ideal for the ones who are new in the makeup world and are still experimenting.

 


According to their website, their mission is "to provide customers with quality cosmetics at low prices" and to "to enable makeup lovers to enjoy and experiment with makeup without sacrificing their budget." 


Another brand that does not test on animals, Catrice is a modern, young and glamourous brand that loves to follow trends and give their costumers an unique shopping experience. From all three brands mentioned in this post, this is by far my favorite one. Their products are really good, have a nice price and a nice design.
