Summer Wishlist

May 27th  •  Posted in Style

Summer Wishlist

I’ve been wanting to put together a Summer wishlist since a while now, but for some reasons it really didn’t feel like Summer was going to come around until just a few days ago. And then it suddently showed up with some glorious warm sunny days that are filling my body with energies and positivity!

I’m not the biggest fan of how hot summers are here in Italy, but I’d lie if I said I’m not extremely excited to wear flowy dresses, sandals and skirts on bare legs all day everyday! I don’t know about you but I’m already planning a whole lot of picnics and summer-themed dinners outside and I just can’t wait!

I’m sorry if I’m not being very present on this blog or on social media recently, but there’s one last day to go until a very special wedding that I’m helping to put together since months (it’s not mine!) and things are being quite busy around here! But in the meanwhile, here’s my summer wishlist (aka what I dream to wear each day for the next couple of months!)…

01. ASOS Bardot Stripe Button Front Beach Dress ;
02. Lien.Do by Seychelles Sillo Flats ;
03. ASOS Structured Midi Dress in Bird and Floral Print ;
04. Anthropologie Caged Bulb String Lights ;
05. Do Not Disturb Straw Sun Hat ;
06. Filanthropik Threads Guate Huaraches ;

What are you lusting after for this summer season? x

A Teagime Update

A Teagime Teatox Update

A couple of months ago I talked about my very first experience with Teagime and teatox programmes just in general, and since then I’ve actually been drinking my blends quite religiously everyday (although I must admit, as the weather is getting warmer, I sometimes forget about my nighttime cup) and have also received my new box with three new blends I can’t wait to talk about!

So far my experience with Teagime has been “all wine and roses” for real! I have enjoyed my very first box blends a lot, but since taking a new questionnaire where I got the chance to update my main goals from my teatox programme and receiving my three new targeted tea blends, I’m even more in love with the brand!

This time my blends are even better than the first one – so much that there has not been one single time that I wished my morning, afternoon or nighttime tea tasted differently nor one single time I got bored of them!

My morning tea has been my breakfast of choice literally everyday with the only exception of Saturdays when I usually can’t say no to fresh croissants and a cappuccino. It contains Blueberries to boost my body with energies, Nettle to fight nasty Spring allergies and Lemon Balm (my favourite in teas!) to stimulate memory and fight stress. Basically everything I need as first thing in the morning to start the day full of energies and stress-free. I must say I’m a lover of coffee in the morning, but I haven’t really missed it while I was drinking my morning blend each day of the week – which is a huge thing! I’m basically left with only a couple of teaspoons of this one and I’m sad to say goodbye!

My afternoon tea targets carbs and sugar cravings and improves circulation and restores calm and focus with Eleuthero Root, Pouchong Tea and Hibiscus (which make this blend taste incredibly nice and floral! And that’s probably why it’s my favourite between the three!). It helps with supporting concentration which is something I definitely need during my afternoon break with two or three more hours of work ahead of me.

And lastly my nighttime blend contains Vanilla, Milk Thistle, Honeybush and Red Clover and focuses on purifying the system to get me ready for the morning ahead. I asked for something that helped clearing up my skin overnight and apparently Red Clover should help with that and also with reducing stress and sleep disorders – something I totally struggled with last month!

As a lover of tea, the all natural kind especially, it’s always a total pleasure to have a moment for myself with a Teagime blend. But what I like the most about their programme is how gentle, nice and natural their hand-picked blends always taste: you never have the feeling what you’re drinking is going to give you drastic results or changes in your body, yet you know your blends are supporting your health, lifestyle and goals in such a delicate natural way!

I can’t *not* suggest their teatox ever enough really! If you’d be interested into trying an all natural teatox programme built especially for you and your goals and needs, I know you’d love Teagime as much as I do!

Have you ever give a teatox programme a try? x

#Girlboss Perfect Jeans

#Girlboss Perfect Jeans

It has been months that I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of mom fit jeans. And I’m not even kidding! I’m a difficult one with jeans indeed, my body shape isn’t apparently considered as standard and I find it difficult to shop for denim from brands different from H&M, as much as I’d like to own some good quality jeans I’d be able to wear for more than 6 months without having them torn apart. But as long as we’re talking skinny jeans, I’d go for anything elasticated and in the end I usually am able to find at least one pair I like on me every new season.

But then mom jeans started looking so appealing to me, with their retro feel and comfy yet put together look. I have been obsessed with them during the last couple of months, as much that I came to the point I hated everyone wearing a pair on Instagram and looking amazing in them, while I wasn’t really able to fit nicely into any I tried on each time I walked by a clothing shop because of my pronounced pear body shape. They either was too tight on my hips or way too large on my waist. And since the denim is thick in mom jeans, and they usually don’t have elasticized fabric in them, it was nearly impossible for me to find a pair that was a nice compromise between the two – wasn’t asking for the “perfect pair” for my figure, I know it would have been an utopia!

You might have spotted me asking about the Topshop’s mom jeans on Twitter a couple of times: I have read thousand of reviews online on them, with girls with a pear shaped body swearing by them, and I was excited because I knew they where my last chance (this sounds tragic, but I really have tried on each and every pair I’ve spotted in shops so far!). But then we don’t have Topshop here in Italy and I would have needed to order them online and that terrified me because of how many pairs I’ve had already tried on with no results.

I probably spent another 3 or 4 weeks contemplating whether to buy them or not, and then “what colour should I pick and if they don’t fit me..?” I have checked out the website way too many times, each time I spotted someone wearing any pair of mom jeans online or in real life. Until the “Pretty Blue” colour (the one I liked since the very beginning) came back in stock and there was only one pair in my size available. And I had one of those moments when you’re like “it was totally meant to be”. That last pair needed to be mine!

I haven’t looked back! They fit me like a glove, and although they’re a little bit loose around my waist, it’s nothing a belt can’t really fix. I’m so happy the denim isn’t as thick as in the ones I tried on before, it’s not as light as I’m used to, but it totally makes all the difference! And yes, I love them that much that I could happily sleep into them!

And don’t they scream #Girlboss outfit to you too? I’ve been wearing them non-stop on my working days from home, when I want to look kind of put together but not really (just in case the postman will come at my doorstep!), with any top really (especially crop) and they always look so perfect and feel as comfortable as you can really get!

And on a different note, I’m very excited to be finally able to wear lightweight tops each day! Touch wood the weather will stay this nice from now on!
