Gift Ideas: Zara's New Zodiac Collection

Gift Ideas Zara Zodiac Collection

Now that we are in the holiday season, I think it's time to start thinking about some cool gift ideas for the important people in our lives. One of the things I love the most during this time of the year is how brands always come up with the most beautiful gift sets and every year they bring up new ideas. 

I love this kind of gift sets especially because they always include amazing packaging so you don't have to worry about how you are going to wrap that gift. It's the easiest way to gift something that you are sure the other person will love!

The other day I saw that Zara has recently launched a new Zodiac collection and maybe some of you already know how obsessed I am with astrology so besides buying something of this collection for myself, I'm sure this could be a great gift option for this holiday season.

I also love it as a gift idea because I feel like is something a little more personal because you can gift something from that person's zodiac sign! And as I mentioned in one of my previous posts, wearing something with the symbol of your zodiac sign helps you to channel that energy and incorporate it into your life. Also, I find that these symbols are very eye-catching and great conversation starters. 

Zara's new Zodiac collection includes silk scarves for each of the zodiac signs which are so classy and their designs give me major Dior vibes because Mr. Christian Dior was also obsessed with astrology and everything magical.

There are also
bag sets for each sign which include a bag and eye mask, a scrunchy, and a pair of socks. The bag and the eye mask have the zodiac sign embroidered which I find is a very nice touch. And everything comes beautifully packed in a box. That's why I think this could be a perfect gift which is also personal because it has that person's zodiac sign.

Leather Pants Edit for This Fall/Winter Season

Zara Green Baggy Leather Pants

Leather is a very big trend right now. You can find everything leather in the high street stores, from shorts and skirts to dresses, blazers and especially pants. All sorts of leather pants and leggings are available in every single brand and I could be any happier! I'm such a big leather lover.

I actually started only wearing faux leather a few years ago because it's more eco friendly and I think that right now there are some great materials which look just as good as leather and they are also very resistant. But for the purpose of this post, I would just say leather because I'm referring to that leather look. 

Zara Black Wool Coat and Green Baggy Pants

A touch of leather gives an outfit that rock and roll, cool chick vibes and for winter it's one of our best friends because it helps us to look more interesting while still keeping us warm. I especially love wearing leather pants during winter to add more texture to my looks and I personally love the combination of textures paired with wool coats. It looks so classy and expensive.

The Leather Pants Edit for this Fall Winter

These are the key elements from today's outfit, my new green coated baggy pants with this timeless black wool coat, both from Zara. I actually can't believe I'm wearing baggy pants because I always thought that since I'm quite petite and skinny they wouldn't look good on me, but these pants look incredible! I'm totally obsessed with their shape and with that olive green color that matches so well with any other color, I have, such as grey, black, beige, or burgundy. What a great neutral shade to add to your wardrobe if you haven't already!

Now let's discussed this black coat, can you guys believe I didn't have any black coats here? I had one very old in Argentina but I didn't bring it with me here and I still can't believe how I could live more than 2 years and survive (fashionably speaking) two winters without a black coat? Anyway, this one is currently discounted in Zara so it's definitely a great option to have in mind if you are looking for the perfect black coat. What I love about this particular design is the length, because it's short but long enough to cover your hips and I also love the golden buttons which add a lot of elegance and chicness to this piece.

Anyway, I hope you like this look and let me know in the comments what is your favorite leather piece to wear? Is it pants like me? Or maybe you prefer jackets or dresses? I would love to know!

First Impressions Korean Beauty from Wishtrend

First Impressions Korean Beauty from Wishtrend

As you may have noticed already from my previous posts, I am a big Korean skincare fanatic since the first time I have tried this kind of product. I was lucky enough to get to know some of these brands throughout my first collaboration with Wishtrend, and from that day on, I have started to research and try more and more brands. 

For today's post, I would like to share my first impressions of some products I have also received from Wishtrend. On this site, you can get some of the best Korean brands and they even have their own brand By Wishtrend, from which I have only heard great things. So I invite you to take a look at this site if you are interested in trying some Korean skincare products because they have some great offers quite often. So, without further due, let's begin discussing these new products I have tried. 

I'm From Rice Toner

I have heard many great comments about this toner on TikTok (yes you already know that TikTok has influenced a lot of my beauty purchases lately) and I was very interested in trying it out because it looks so soothing and calming. The rice helps to clean the skin and make it clear and glowy. It's very hydrating and moisturizing so it feels really nice on the skin when you apply it. It has a very light and liquid texture, almost like milk and it absorbs very quickly into the skin. In addition, this toner has Niacinamide, which also helps to regulate sebum production and to brighten the skin. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this product and I'm very happy I have incorporated it into my skincare routine.

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil

I was very interested in trying some other products from this brand since I had such a good experience with their Vitamin C serum and I opted for this cleansing oil because I wanted to try something different for my double cleansing routine. This was my first time trying a cleansing oil and I have to say I'm very surprised! This oil does a very good job in removing my makeup, it takes a little time to work it, especially on the eye area but it does remove all my mascara, without any problems. You need to rinse it out a few times to make sure that there is no oil residue on your face but after you finish the skin feels very soft, clean but still hydrated and nourished. Just keep in mind if you use this product that you need to use another water-based cleanser to remove all the excess oil and to make you it doesn't clog your pores. I'm also super satisfied with this cleansing oil and I will be using it every other day instead of the micellar water so I can remove my makeup without using so many cotton pads.

Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence

From Korean brands, you can get the best sunscreens because they have amazing formulas that are lightweight, hydrating, and that don't leave a white cast. this particular sunscreen from Klairs has SPF 50 and it blocks UVA and UVB rays so it gives you complete protection from the sun. This Klairs SPF contains 80ml so you get a lot of product for a very good price. The texture is like a light moisturizer and it gets absorbed very quickly without any white cast, I even think it's lighter than the Purito one and that is a lot to say! So, overall I'm very impressed with this SPF and I would totally recommend it.

I hope you find these quick reviews or first impressions useful, I love trying and discovering new products, especially from Korean brands because they are maybe not so popular but they offer an amazing quality in regards to ingredients and formulations for very reasonable prices, and to me that it's always a plus! Let me know if you have tried any of these products or if you have any other recommendations.
