Anyone said sequins? I don’t even need to hear the end of the phase and I’m in! I just LOVE sequins! So whenever choosing a night out or a fancy party dress, I do love a sequin dress.
And at this time of the year, nothing like a long sleeved sequin dress to shine through the night! And that’s why I felt in love with this Goddiva sequin dress in rose gold:
Nothing like a full sequin dress, right? This Goddiva dress was love at first sight! In rose gold, it’s the perfect party dress for a night out, for celebrating something special or for the holiday season.
It’s not the first time I try one of their dresses, and like I said on my other outfit with a Goddiva long dress (review), I was positively surprised with the dress’ quality, it’s really well made and so beautiful!
And this short sequin dress was not different, it’s a quality dress that you can wear and enjoy the party shining the whole night!
This dress is part of the Stephanie Pratt collection created for Goddiva this season and it’s one of the gorgeous dresses from her collection. It’s the perfect dress to shine and party!
The back of this dress is also full in sequins and it has a nice cut out at the top, making it a sexy dress, but in a very elegant and classy way, just the way I love a sexy dress!
For a party, my favourite shoes are high heels, of course! And to add even more glam to this look, I’ve paired this dress with some of my favourite shoes, because of this art deco details in the back. So I always think they are party-perfect.
The draped detail at the end of the dress brings even more charm to this beautiful sequin dress that I’m loving! By the way, even being a full sequin dress, the dress is very comfortable, meaning you can easily move wearing it and, of course, you don’t feel any sequins inside.
As for accessories, since the dress is already “full of life” and shine, I went for some delicate pieces, just a rose gold pair of earrings and one simple ring, so all the focus would be on the dress and me. 😉
Do you prefer a jeans and T-shirt kind of outfit or maybe a dress for the daily life? I like them both, but you all now I LOVE dresses! But the best thin is always being able to change our outfits and even a bit of its style.
So on today’s blog post I picked 3 different day outfits to inspire you on how to dress for the day to day errands or even on how to dress for work / university or a day out around the town.
Top: Eva Trends | Jeans: Animale | Shoes: Hidden Fashion | Sunglasses: Adore
All the outfits are from a website called Eva Trends, something very different from them is that all pieces are one size fits all. I was a bit “afraid” on how that would go, because I usually need to go for the smallest size, but for my surprise, everything went well and clothes were adjustable to my size. Use the code “ML10” for 10% of your shopping on their website. 😉

With a distressed pair of jeans and this cute white top, it’s a casual outfit, but with a touch of style:
My second outfit is a blue dress with long sleeve that is so cute! And it’s also from the website with one size that fits all, and you can adjust to your size.
It’s such a cute dress to wear with heel highs or even with flat shoes, like cute flats or even with a pair of sneakers.
And the last outfit is another dress, if you ever visited my blog, you probably already know that I love dresses. And this one is another one in a cute style with a floral print in green:

I love bath products especially if it’s an in-shower body lotion and this is a review of the Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion skin conditioner for bath. What a big name. But it is nothing more than that super practical product that is a body lotion to be used during the bath.
I find this type of product to be so practical and also very useful, especially in winter, when it gets colder and you can get really lazy with your skin care after the shower, so the good news is that it is a body moisturizer that you apply while you’re in the shower. So, there are no excuses for not applying a moisturizer, you can’t say that it was too cold or it was too much effort, it’s so practical and that’s why I love this kind of product!
I’ve already did other reviews of products from Eucerin here on the blog and I really like the products from this brand and this moisturizer in-shower was not different, so I can already tell you that I’m loving it!
Body lotion: Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion skin conditioner for bath (400ml) – Review
Starting this review of Eucerin In-Shower Moisturizing Body Lotion for bath (sensitive skin), it is a moisturizer to be applied during your shower, after cleansing the skin. That is, it is a product created specifically for sensitive skin that promises to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses and provide immediate hydration (and everything while you’re still inside of the shower).
An important detail is that after applying this body lotion, you need to rinse it (this would be the only difference between a normal body moisturizer and this one, if the traditional one you apply and leave the product on the skin, but the shower version need to be rinsed after it).
The body moisturizer for bath from Eucerin has 5% Dexpanthenol, but what is it and what is its function?
Dexpanthenol is used in some cosmetics, including some very famous ones, to moisturize the skin (remember Bepantol or see any similarities between the two words? Dexpanthenol is used in it too). What this powerful ingredient does is reduce the loss of skin water, so it prevents dryness and/or peeling of our skin, being a great ingredient in products with hydration function. Because it leaves the skin more hydrated and smoother.
In addition, this body moisturizer Eurcerin In-Shower Body Lotion for Bath is unscented, without dyes and is free of parabens.
The texture of the product is very similar to a traditional moisturizing lotion, it is super easy to apply on the skin during your shower and shortly after when you rinse it from the body, you can already notice that the skin is smoother and smoother.
As it has the function of a body moisturizer, after using this product in your shower, you don’t need to apply another traditional moisturizer, as it has the same function. It can be used daily, as well as other type of moisturizer for the body.
For its practicality, I love body lotions that are in-shower and I really liked this one from Eucerin, it does not have perfume (which is good point for me) and leaves the skin smooth and hydrated.
Where to buy it? Find it here for U$ 7.66.

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.
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.
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.
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.
And here’s the back of this sequin dress in a maxi style:
Here are some details of this party makeup and of my hair to match this stunning glamourous sequin dress:
Dress: Goddiva | Rings: Jeulia Jewelry | Bracelet: Charriol
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.

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!).

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
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:
• Products I used on this glam/party makeup:
- Primer: Porefessional – Benefit, U$ 31
- Foundation: Lancome Teint Miracle, U$ 47
- Concealer: Studio Finish, MAC, € 20
- Eyeshadows: Virgin, Half Baked and Dark Horse from Naked by Urban Decay, €45,45
- Fake Eyelashes: Nebula false eyelashes by Esquido
- Eyelashes glue: ESQIDO eyelash glue
- Powder: Studio Fix Powder by MAC, € 32
- Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC, €20
- Bronzer: Eudora (brazilian brand)
- Blush: Make B. (brazilian brand)
With closed eyes:
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.

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.
Dress: Popjulia | Sandals: H&M
• Floral dress perfect for spring
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”
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? 😉
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.
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.

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: Yellow Day Shower Gel (Bergamot and 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.
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.
