Lately I've been travelling and I've been frequenting Sephora and I ended up with these makeup staples for summer.Here's my summer makeup bag staples:
I don't leave the house without a vibrant pink shade lipstick.YSL makes the best pinks.Shiseido - also my favorite.Also Chanel has the most French lipstick.
Dior Extase is my must have since I discovered it at Harrods, London Dior counter with the suggestion of an SA.This is my 3rd tube of Extase.
Who can say no to Guerlain Terracotta? Terracotta set bought from an airport duty free- total bronze look must have.This set is two sided, one side you see eyeshadow set and the other side is bronzing powder.
Dior is my favorite set makeup brand for luxury.I love this smokey eyeshadow set also pink tones of posh blush.

On friday I was checking out Turkish designer stores' purse collections and I ended up craving up for a new Alexander Wang bag for summer.I really want a black Alexander Wang bag but its summer and I just thought light colours are perfect for my summer clothes and shoes.I ended up buying Alexander Wang Emile handbag from Harvey Nichols (my favorite store).
I can't wait to use it :)

I should admit.Navigli is kind of a vintage heaven.Its great for shopping for vintage and boho chics.Also, Navigli is known for cafes, night life and many artists and celebs frequenting this place.The most boho side of Milan.I went there to a remote train station.I first felt like how its like to go Spitalfields Market and Brick Lane.Theres also a smell around Navigli, maybe government can do something for hygene.On the other hand, I also saw a kind sister of Firenze capture in Navigli cause theres this gray water.and dirty yellow and green shades around the buildings.Firenze aka Florance is much more beautiful than Navigli - I gotta admit.
where I shopped for vintage :
REBEL VINTAGE , NAVIGLI, MILAN
The owner was a fashionista who was wearing Miu Miu round shades and great eeclectic style.warm blooded and friendly smiling- also helping with Italian accent English.My friend and me tried different heels, but I have to admit, its always hard to find sizes, they run so small like 34-35-36 in Milan.Can you imagine? I love hunting vintage summer shoes but its very hard.I am size 37,5 and 38 so- I ended up buying one amazing pair of white summer sandals.They are super stylish.I can cry.
