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:

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.

The sun is out and shinning, the summer is here and here are the summer outfits!
So here’s another lovely white summer outfit with a crop top and long skirt in lace that I’m LOVING!
Crop top and long skirt by: Whats Mode (and you can get 15% OFF with my Whats Mode coupon code: “ICONTATO01”. | Handbag: Guess | Sunglasses: Adore
This summer I’m all about the off shoulder trend, tops, dresses, every thing off shoulder, please. So this one is such a trendy outfit but also a very fresh one, since the temperatures are already very high here in Milan, think about 34˚C. Hello, summer in the city!

White lace off shoulder crop top, such a trendy and must-have piece for this summer.
The skirt is a long white skirt in lace that is a bit shorter in the front and longer in the back:
Since I was wearing all white and nude shoes, I had chosen a rose gold bag with some flowers and glitter, to give my whole outfit a little more glam touch.
My sunglasses are from a brand called Adore.
And here are some details of my makeup, that I decided to go with a pink makeup with some light eyeshadows and I couldn’t resist to choose a bright pink lipstick:

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.
* This dress was sent by the brand to me, but as always, all text and opinions on the blog are my own real and sincere opinions about anything I try.
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.
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.
If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, you can follow me at @manuluize), you noticed I’ve been going to some fitness and training events organized with a initiative by the beauty brand Lierac, that’s organizing a beauty run here in Milan on June 9th: the Lierac Beauty Run 2018.
The Lierac Beauty Run is one of the brand’s initiative to empower woman and to help us to add some healthy running/activities in our life with more consistency.
In 2018, this is going to be the third beauty run and this years’ run was presented on the new New Balance flagship store here in Milan and it’s also known as the “corsa in rosa”, that means “the pink run” in italian. The run is organized by RCS Active Team – RCS Sport in collaboration with Lierac.
• Lierac Beauty Run 2018 – Milano:
It’s not only a beauty run created to empower woman that take part in the run, but you can also choose one between five different organizations to donate your donation quote included on the enrollment for this beauty run. This’ years organizations are: Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, Dynamo Camp, Diversity, Fondazione Francesca Rava and Professional Women Network.
Andrea Trabuio, Head of Mass Events RCS Active Team, explained: “Lierac Beauty Run is a run created to celebrate women and lovers of a healthy lifestyle, a day of great celebration for everyone. Also on this year, the run will pass in the heart of Milan with two routes, one of 5 km and another one of 10 km. The run is the end of a journey that started in January with RUN4ME Lierac, which has registered over 1000 members. We are waiting for you on June 9th starting at 3.30 pm at the Lierac Beauty Village, with many activities organized by our partners and with a special Kids Area. ”
The Lierac Beauty Run will take place on the Saturday 9th June at 9.00 pm, with departure and arrival at the majestic Civic Arena of Milan, and then winding along a city route of 5 km and 10 km! Which seems to be so cool!
