Sequin Dress: Goddiva dress review

Let’s shine in a sequin dress, girls! I can’t never explain how much I love sequins, so tell me about a lovely party dress in sequins and I am in!

On the daily life or for party dresses, I always loved sequins and when I saw this mermaid maxi dress almost full in sequins I felt in love.

Manu Luize: Goddiva party dress review

Sequin Dress: Goddiva

 

If it’s your time to shine and you’re looking for a full glam party dress, sequins are always a good option to think about. And if you want to be breathtaking glamourous, this is definitely a kind of dress you can go for.

The perfect party dress is that dress that matches your style and your body shape, if you want to value your silhouette, a sequin dress like this one is perfect, because it values your waist and it has a skirt with volume that creates quite a glam effect.

Sequin dress: long dress

This dress is from a website called Goddiva, they sell affordable party dresses that are actually so beautiful. Inspired by red carpet and celebrity styles, the designs are very modern and beautiful, like any other shopping online moment when you don’t know a website, we always think twice, right?

The dresses look amazing on the website and they actually are! I was very surprised by the quality when I received the dress, the sequin dress was lovely and the chiffon fabric on the dress is also so soft to the touch, so definitely good quality in affordable prices for party dresses online.

 

Maxi dress: sequins party dress

I chose this cut out sequin and chiffon maxi dress from Goddiva in the color champagne, just because I was so in the mood of light colors such as champagne and rose gold, and I love how maxi dresses are so elegant in delicate colors.

Something that’s very interesting about this maxi dress with sequins is that because the dress has the sequins in a gradient pattern, if the dress is too long for you, you can have it fixed and shorted easily. Mine was actually just perfect with my high heels.

• How to rock this sequin dress:

It’s perfect as prom dress, also for bridesmaids, matching styles or not matching, or any other event you’re ready to shine! Be aware: every eye in the room will turn to you when you arrive. ;)

The shoulder detail is perfect for this season, since cut out shoulders are so trendy right now! And it’s actually a very sexy look, but in a very elegant way.

Here you can also see my eyes’ makeup in shades of golden and dark brown paired with a red lipstick, just to make all my look even more glam!

With a dress like this you can either go full glam with your makeup like I did here or you can go for a more soft and delicate look in shades of pink and with a nude lipstick, it all depends of your personal style.

Salone Del Mobile Milano 2018

Salone del Mobile Milano 2018

For those of you who love architecture and interior design, this year, again, I visited the Salone del Mobile Milano that happened here in Milan a while ago, I already had already published a video in portuguese on youtube channel (/manuluize) with the main trends from the decor fair.

To check the video of the Salone del Mobile 2018 here in Milan (it’s in portuguese, but you can still see all the decor and trends ;)), watch it here:

Lots of trends in architecture and decoration, a lot of technology or even some completely classic decoration (and sometimes even a little “exaggerated”), the Salone del Mobile Milano is a fair that happens annually here in Italy and is huge, with a lot of variety for all tastes and styles!

It takes a few days to visit a good part of the fair, after all is really a lot to see, so the highlights of the edition are on my video.

A trend that may be a little contradictory that I would like to highlight: the closets and cabinets in transparent glass, whether for closets, on bedroom or even in other parts of the house (like living room or even in the kitchen). I say contradictory, because personally I enjoyed it very much, but I’m still not sure if I would choose to have it at home (after all, in the case of the closet, it would have to be very well organized all the time!).

Esqido false eyelashes: Review

Who doesn’t love a pair of false eyelashes? I definitely do, since it’s such a great way to “open your eyes” and get instant volume and long lashes in a few seconds.

Being a fan of false eyelashes for such a long time, I love wearing them on specials occasions or even just for going out when going for a more glam look. True is I would wear them everyday if needed.

Anyway, I received a pair of false eyelashes from Esqido for the most voluminous and glam look, the pair is called Nebula lash style and it as voluminous as you can go.

 

• Review of Esqido false eyelashes

Esqido false eyelashes review

Let’s start by the packing that’s so beautiful and glam in white and rose gold! The falsies are of a high quality and the lashes are very beautiful.

I also received their ESQIDO eyelash glue, which I’m loving and using all the time to apply all my fake eyelashes! The applicator is great to get the right amount of glue you need to glue your eyelashes in place and it also dries very quickly, so you can apply your falsies in a clean and mess-free way!

 

Now back to my pair of lashes, Nebula false eyelashes are very black and full of volume, it’s definitely not a natural pair, it’s the one you should pick for a full glam makeup look.

And here’s the difference between a no eyelashes makeup and a makeup with the Nebula Esqido false eyelashes with a before and after photo:

Here’s is another photo in which you can see the effect of the false eyelashes, on the left side without the falsies and on the right side with the Esqido falsies:

Esqido false eyelashes review

 

Overall as a Esqido false eyelashes review, I really liked the quality of the lashes, they are really well done and beautiful. The glue is also great, it’s easy to apply and it holds the lashes on place.

They also arrived very well packed, which is so important when shopping online.

Floral Dress for Spring (Popjulia Review)

I just love dresses! I guess would’ve noticed that already, right? Specially for the spring season, dresses, dresses and dresses!

So here’s another one of my picks on dresses for this spring with this lovely floral dress.

Spring floral dress

Dress: Popjulia | Sandals: H&M

 

• Floral dress perfect for spring

Floral dress spring - Manu Luize

I’m loving dresses for this spring (or any other season), but specially the dresses with prints, like this floral print that makes this dress a cute dress for this season. It has such a classy look, not only because it’s a floral white dress, but also due to the classy A-line shape of the dress.

 

Do you know what is an A-line dress? Its name comes from the dress shape, that looks like an A, because the skirt has more volume than the top part of the dress, remembering the shape of an “A”

Floral dress (Popjulia review)

By the way, this floral dress is by a website called Popjulia, I already have a few of their dresses (check more of my outfits here) and it some very interesting options of dresses and outfits, all with an interesting quality and affordable prices.

 

I just paired this dress with Aviator sunglasses and silver accessories that went so well with the dress’ colors. And, of course, a pair of high heels, because why not? ;)

Floral dress - Popjulia Review

 

The print is very cute and not so full on the whole dress, which puts this dress more on the elegant side of prints and I love it.

Floral dress Popjulia review

Dress: Popjulia | Sandals: H&M

To match the delicate and classy style of my outfit, I went with my everyday makeup look with brown eyeshadows, but surprisingly, with some light pink lipstick in an almost nude tone! I love vivid and bright lipsticks, but sometimes, even I go with almost nude and light lips.

Check more details of my makeup look in this photo:

 

 

By the way, I visited a pink coffee shop here and Milan and I couldn’t help to take a photo of my outfit there as well! Since it’s so girly and beautiful.

The place is called Miss Sixty Cafè here in Milan, very near the Duomo.

Prismologie: Shower Gel Bergamot & Citrine (Review)

I love bath products, especially the shower gel kind and with a more luxurious fragrance and texture, so the Prismologie’s shower gel with Bergamot and Citrine is exactly like this!

With minimalist and colorful packaging, Prismologie products, a British brand I met at the Cosmoprof Bologna last year (a huge beauty fair here in Italy), call a lot of attention not only to their design, but also for their quality.

Prismologie Shower gel - Yellow Day

 

• Prismologie: Yellow Day Shower Gel (Bergamot and citrine)

Prismologie Shower Gel: bergamot & citrine

I’m not a big fan of products with strong fragrances, but at the shower, I like a shower gel with a good fragrance, it doesn’t need to leave a strong scent on the skin, but a good smell in the air during the shower.

The fragrances really influence my mood at my shower time and I love products with a nice fragrance and this one with bergamot and citrine from the Prismologie’s Yellow Day line is incredible!

All product lines of the brand have a different color and fragrance and I loved this one! I also tried the pink line, check it out here on my Review of Prismologie’s Hand cream.

 

Prismologie Shower Gel: Bergamot and Citrine

The brand also brings a bit of positivity into our lives, after all, the small details are what make a difference, and this shower gel brings the following text on the packaging: Stand tall. Feel radiant. Spread some sunshine.

This shower gel from Prismologie has a light texture and it’s very pleasant to use during the shower, leaving a delicious fragrance in the bathroom and lightly on the skin.

The skin gets soft and with that velvety touch, but remember that as it’s just a shower gel, it is to clean the skin and does not have the function of a hydrant. Do not forget to use a moisturizer later.

Prismologie Sower Gel Yellow Day (Bergamot & Citrine), U$ 50.

If you also love high-end bath/shower products that bring that different texture, it could be a good choice of shower gel for you to try.

Prismologie is a British brand and you can find it easier in the UK, but you can also find it online, like on the website above.

* I received this product from the brand, as always, the reviews here on the blog are always my real and sincere opinions on the product.
