Every year when fall rolls around my quest for the perfect pair of boots begins. And every year I miserably fail, which might be because my criteria are a tad bit too strict. Just to be clear: I love the boots I own, that's why I bought them in the first place, but the perfect pair only existed in my dreams. Until now.

A lot of my looks are all about comfort these days, so I'm always looking for ways to bring a little more excitement into the way I dress, but with as little effort as humanly possible. My baby is officially a toddler now, which means I have to chase her around quite a bit - a task that becomes almost impossible when you're wearing high heels. Which, most of the time, I don't but when I really want to I wear these block heeled suede ankle boots that are super comfortable and also black (the best color ever, if you ask me).
Some might say that fall is no time for lightweight tops, but I beg to differ. I love to layer my outfits and these kind of trendy tops are a great way to avoid looking bulky while still wearing multiple layers, such as cardigans, vests, sweaters and coats, to protect yourself from the cold and still be fashionable.

The Secret to making an organic skincare product work is knowing the right ingredients to use for a particular product, and not just that, but also knowing the right quantity of each ingredient to use in each recipe, as well as the right timing in the production process.

Cyrca Originals is a clothing brand founded by two young designers, Viola and Patrick. They create custom T-shirts for people from all backgrounds and ages, inspired by the styles that they themselves would love to wear. That, for me, is a winning thought process: I love it, so I will make it for myself and for other people who have similar tastes.
If you have ever tried shopping for clubbing dresses online, you were inevitably faced with the dilemma: how to choose one that is sexy, but tasteful? One that will reveal some skin in just the right places, but will still make me look classy?

I'm sure a lot of you would agree that the jewelry we choose to wear is so much more than just shiny metal and pretty stones. Sure, we do sometimes buy accessories just to complement an outfit, but most of the time it is a lot more personal than that: our jewelry can be a memory or tell a story, it can be a gift from someone special or can symbolize something very important to us, and ultimately, it is a reflection of who we are.

I have always loved Nordic design: the minimalistic style, tranquil colors and quality materials. That's probably one of the reasons I really enjoyed working with La Cameretta di Pippi, a lovely children's boutique that offers a great selection of the best North European brands.
After an extremely hot Italian summer and beautiful warm September the first cold day of the fall always comes as a surprise to me. As in, one day I'm wearing ballet flats and the next I'm frantically searching for my coats and winter boots. As you can imagine, I don't purchase an entire new wardrobe every season and I have a lot of pieces that I like to style over and over again, but it's a good idea to buy at least a few new items that will have you excited for the season and change up your look a little bit.

Hey guys! This long long week is finally over and the golden autumn weekend is here in all its glory. I have already mentioned it on Instagram how much I love this season and I will say it again. As I'm looking out my window right now I see a large tree with orange and golden leaves and all I want to do is curl up in a comfy armchair with a good book and drink a cup of cinnamon tea (I'm reading Love In The Time Of Cholera right now, in case you were wondering).
When it comes to online shopping, us women of the 21st century are truly lucky. We have grown used to being spoiled for choice whether we are looking for clothes, shoes, home decor, electronics and whatever else we need, as there are literally thousands of websites that offer products we can purchase with the click of a button. But this kind of abundance has its backside too: I often find myself overwhelmed with choice and sometimes all I want is a one stop shop: a website where I can find everything I need in one place.

This is my first real fall look this year and I'm so excited for the new season! I pulled out all my coats and hats and sweaters from storage this weekend and to be honest I'm a little overwhelmed with the quantity of clothes I have... Fashion blogger problems, I guess. :)
With the arrival of fall most of us feel the need to prepare for the cold season by adding a few new items to our closets. But what to do if you can't afford to spend much on clothes right now? I have good news for you: you can visit Fashionmia to shop for cheap dresses for any occasion.
