Personal // Instagram & Snapchat July 2015

InstagramJuly1
As you may have noticed, it's been a bit silent here for the past month. I decided to take a small break to clear my mind and figure out on where I want to go with my blog. I spent tons of time with family and friends and combined it brainstorming sessions as well. It was perfect to recharge my batteries and I'm full of inspiration and new ideas now.

You can have a sneak peek into my personal life on Instagram and Snapchat; my username on both is Krizia_S. Find some of my favorite pictures and moments of the month of July below.

Money VS Budget // Céline VS H&M

CélineVSHM
I spotted this round gold hair clip at H&M and it immediately reminded me of the models' hair during the Céline S/S 2015 show. There are multiple valid reasons why this accessory would be a justified purchase: 

- You don't need major skills in the hair department to nail this look.
- It will make every bad hair day disappear. 
- This look will cost you only 1 minute of your time.
- It's the perfect look for every occasion.
- You will look like a Céline model. Enough said.

I searched the entire web, but I never found any details on if the Céline clip was ever for sale. On another note: the H&M clip could be yours for only € 3,99 / $ 4,99. You can find it in stores or on their website.

What do you think about this look?
Is it something you would do with your hair?

Review // Clinique Summer Skincare

CliniqueSummer11
Aah, summer... The season that I have a love / hate relationship with. As much as I love feeling the sunshine on my skin, I hate all the things I have to deal with in order to keep my skin protected. Even though I'm 100 % Italian, my skin prefers to think otherwise. I'm very pale - Edward Cullen ain't got sh*t on me - and I hardly get a tan. I already made peace with the fact that I will never have a bronze glow and became best friends with the shadow over the years. Tanning beds are not for me either. I just don't have the patience nor the will to lock myself into a cancer spreading box. 

Don't get me wrong: it's not that I go into complete isolation during summer, but I know my limits and I am aware of what my skin can or can not handle. So I do sit in the sun from time to time - I have to soak up some vitamin D - but you will never see me laying in the sun for hours straight. Plus, I also apply sunscreen like no other. My friends like to make fun of my paleness and my sunscreen obsession, but I just don't want to risk damaging my skin for nothing. 

A couple of weeks ago, Clinique sent me some products to try out this summer, including a scrub, a body cream, a face cream and after sun. My trip to Italy and the recent Belgian heatwave gave me the perfect opportunity to try them out.

Disclaimer: These products were sent to me by a PR company / brand for review purposes.

Fashion // Get Ready For Festival Season

CoachellaCollage
Festival season is upon us and I couldn't be happier. I managed to get my hands on a ticket for Pukkelpop, which is a festival near my home town and which I attend every year. This time, it was a bit harder, though. The tickets were sold out as soon as they were released and I was kinda heartbroken, because Linkin Park will perform there and I was a big fan as a teenager. They released extra tickets afterwards and I was too late again; sold out in 2 minutes and it left me heartbroken even more. And then they released another 1000 tickets and I finally got one! Linkin Park, here I come! 

Even though the festival isn't until August, I'm already brainstorming on what to wear. Each year, I browse through pictures of celebrities that attended Coachella for inspiration. Coachella is on my bucket list big time and I hope to get there one day (soon). This year, it was all about fringe, mini or maxi skirts, cropped tops and tiny cross body bags. I thought it would be fun to collect some of my favorite Coachella 2015 looks and to also show you where to shop them. I tried to limit myself to well known, affordable websites such as Asos, Boohoo, River Island and Topshop. 

Are you planning to attend any festivals this summer? If so, which one(s)?
Happy shopping!
