What Is Nu Goth Fashion Style ?

| on
Monday, March 20, 2017
No one can deny a huge and important gothic impact on modern pop culture and fashion trends. Nu goth fashion style is a soft mixture between two fashion styles - classic gothic motives (black color, baroque jewelry, elegance and sensuality) with up - to date fashion trends (high waist skirts and pants, fedora hats and chunky boots.) Nu goth fashion is a little bit less bright and cheerful than pastel goth style, nu goths choose a darker colors for their outfits and include more vintage pieces. But at the same time nu goth fashion is more simple, comfortable and affordable than classic goth corsets, silver jewelry and Victorian skirts.

Some say that nu goth style almost accurately resembles a good old 80s goth style even more closely than any other modern gothic styles. Others say that nu goths have decided to mix up the classic gothic canons with infamous hipster fashion. An everyday nu goth outfit should be practical, comfortable yet feminine and romantic, so today I`ve decided to put together my favorite nu goth fashion outfits that are suitable for an everyday life with a help of Fashionmia - an online fashion store with best prices and discounts.

And for dessert I gathered few of my favorite Maxi Evening Dresses in the same nu goth style ispired by one of the most famous gothic fashion `icons` - Morticia Addams. Floor length maxi dresses are best for every girl, who like to stay charming and mysterious throughout the whole evening. Plus the maxi dress trend  never dies!

Whether you love it or hate it I hope you enjoyed reading my post. That`s all for now, all of the women's dresses I mentioned in my today`s blog post and many other fashion items and accessorizes you can find online at Fashionmia store. If you are in need of a nice party, prom or wedding dress then look no further. No matter what dress you are looking for and no matter what your budget would be, you are going to look beautiful, classy and trendy!

Summer Swimwear Trends + Zaful Try On Bikini Haul | Expectation Vs. Reality

liz breygel fashion try on swimsuits swimwear bikini tankini haul palm leaf stripes print

The best way to survive the last cold days is to shop for the upcoming beach season. Start clean out the space in your closet for summer outfits and let the brand new fashion trends drive away the spleen. Meet and greet the biggest summer swimwear trends of this year - bralette bikinis, one piece swimsuits, tankinis, and cover ups are the must have items for all the fashion lovers.

Few weeks ago I`ve received four gorgeous swimsuits by Zaful - a one stop fashion and beauty store - just in time for my summer try on haul! And today I`m going to try on these beautiful swimsuits and share with you my thoughts. Do they actually look like the pictures on the Zaful website? Does expectation match reality? Let`s find out!

Let me start from the one - piece swimsuit that combined two different prints and styles at the same time. One - piece swimwear like tankini and monokini is a never - ending trend but this season it will come back with a new variations and color combos. I`ve never seen such a unique swimwear in my life, the person who created this design is literally a genius! It is very hard  to combine pale pink and dark basil green shades in one fashion item, especially if it is a one - piece swimwear, plus designers added a vertical marine stripes! Hard to believe but it turned out looking very cheeky and vintage. This swimsuit has a very thin detachable straps on the top, so you can easily remove them and let your shoulders tan. The bottom part will help to cover up the belly and hide any `problematic` areas.

If you are a huge fan of  bralette swimsuits and lingerie you will definitely fall in love with this bikini set. It looks innocent and feminine and features another major summer trend - palm leaf print. Lately palm leaf print appears on every fashion item - tops, summer shoes, bikini sets and even pants and makes any outfit look chic and fresh. If your are an owner of hourglass figure, then bikini swimwear is the best choice for you. The quality of the palm leaf print and swimsuit fabrics is very good and it looks just like the picture from the website.

I loved this bikini set - black and white marine stripes, beautiful and comfortable top and classic bottoms - what else do we need from a good swimsuit? When I chose this gorgeous set my biggest mistake was a choice of the size. I asked for size M, because I was afraid that bikini part will be too small for my hips, but I was wrong. Size M was too big for me and unfortunately I can`t go to the beach wearing this swimsuit. The rest, fabric and print quality is great and again the stripped tankini swimsuit looks just like a picture from the Zaful website. By the way, stripes and multi color summer themed prints are another major swimwear trend s of the upcoming summer 2017 season.

And the last in my bikini haul, but definitely not the least swimwear I`m going to talk about is the black high - waisted swimsuit. High waisted bikini bottoms are a very big trend in the beach fashion at the moment, unfortunately it is a little bit more complicated swimwear to pull off. But if you are into vintage swimwear style and have a long and slim legs don`t pass by this gorgeous option - high waisted swimsuits will look amazing on you figure. It will look great on a curvy women as well! Pair a classic high waisted bikini with a comfortable swim dress for a nice beach outfit and you are ready to go!

Overall, I loved all the swimsuits I tried today and my expectations met the reality. Don`t forget to get ready for the upcoming beach season by adding few trendy swimsuits to your swimwear collection. For all the gorgeous curvy beauties out there Zaful prepared a huge range of stylish plus size swimwear options and plus size cover ups for swimwear. Zaful plus size swimsuits will beautifully emphasize your flattering body shape whether you are tanning on a beach, swimming in the pool or playing sports on sand. Don`t be afraid of wearing your favorite bikini just because you are a little bit more curvier, I bet everyone can find the right swimwear!

Lots of love,

Sizing - one size fits all; Length - 50 cm, Width - 9,5 cm
Japanese street fashion is very famous around the globe, it never fails to impress even the most demanding fashionistas and today I`ve decided to follow the trend and review a pair of super cute knee height stockings by Gamiss. They aren`t just cute and comfortable, but perfectly cope with the task to keep my legs warm.

Panda Stockings* by Gamiss are made of a good quality cotton blend, they are tight but stretchy and feel very comfortable. I`m 5,3 (163 cm) height and the size of this stockings fit me perfectly, but if you are higher than me I don`t think you will feel comfortable in these stockings.

Cute stockings with animal snouts and ears are available in different styles and color options and sometimes it is so hard to choose your favorite from a wide range, so don`t miss it! How to wear? This stockings are definitely an everyday item, wear them with a shorts, mini dress or versatile jumpsuit and you are ready to go. 

Overall, I`m definitely recommending these stockings - the price is bargain and the design is too cute to pass by. I would also recommend this stockings as a gift, any girl would love to receive a pair of high quality stockings as a gift.

Faux Fur Waistcoat 2017 Spring Trend

Monday, March 13, 2017

Faux fur coats, vests and jackets have been winter/spring fashion trend as long as I can remember and I doubt this trend will disappear in the nearest fashion future. At first faux fur vest seems like a very hard item to pull off, but I`m convinced that every fashionista should be prepared for the upcoming spring fashion season and get one `furry` item in your closet. 

Frequently clothes, shoes and accessories look absolutely different in real life than they do in pictures from the fashion stores. Fortunately this Faux Fur Waistcoat* didn`t fail to meet my expectations and looked even better than pictures on the Gamiss website. The fur looks and feels very soft and natural, the hairs are pretty long, but unlike he natural fur the faux fur doesn`t need a special care. If you prefer a shorter fur vest you can find the same shorter version of my vest here.

The best thing about fur vest is that it can easily transform any casual outfit! Whether you layer it over a knitted sweater and skinny jeans, or pair it with your favorite dress the result is certainly be stylish and elegant. Wondering what shoes to wear with your favorite fur vest? Don`t forget to check out my nu goth Platform Ankle Boots review, these boots will complete the outfit.

In a nutshell, I`m crazy over this waistcoat, it is the first time I have a courage to get something so bold and casual. And even though freezing winter days are gone, spring winds can also be cold and severe at times, especially at night. So if the temperature suddenly drops. Cozy `furry` vest is a great way to keep yourself warm but glamorous. The Faux Fur Waistcoat is available in 7 unique shades - from a classic black to cute nude pink color it was so hard for me to choose one! Be beautiful, stylish and stay kind to animals, because no animals must suffer for the benefit of our stylish outfit.

What’s your favorite way to wear faux fur?

Lots of love,
Liz

AQUAMARINE MAKEUP TUTORIAL | MARCH BIRTHSTONE

| on
Wednesday, March 08, 2017
beauty makeup blogger liz breygel

Hi guys, I`m back with a new step by step makeup tutorial and this time I was inspired by beautiful Aquamarine, a birthstone of March. Aquamarine stone has long been a symbol of youth, health and hope, it has a very pure and clean color that ranges from pastel blue to deep tile. The color of this wonderful stone is mesmerizing and reminds me of a sea - it can be calm and pale or blustering and bold. This color was created for young and fresh month of spring and it will create a very light and beautiful accent for your spring outfit!

beauty makeup blogger liz breygel

1. Start with an eyeshadow primer - apply it all over your eyelid and blend with a help of your finger. Eyeshadow primer will help our color to last longer and look bolder on the skin. Give this product some time to set down and continue with the makeup.

2. Fill in your eye brows using an eye brow pencil or an eyeshadow, as you prefer. Start to apply a satin white eyeshadow all over the eyelid, this will make the application of a pencil easier. Now it is a time to create a beautiful and sharp shape on the crease. If your eye crease is small draw a line a little bit higher than your natural crease - this will create an illusion of a bigger space.

3. Blend the pencil with a help of small and soft synthetic brush. Apply a matte blue eyeshadow on the top of the pencil and blend out the edges with a help of a clean blending brush. Highlight your brow bone with a white shimmering eyeshadow and blend the transition between white and blue eyeshadow with a help of a fluffy blending brush. For the lower lash line use the same matte blue eyeshadow you applied on the crease.

4. The next step is to put a black eye kohl on the upper waterline and create a bold cat line on your eyes with liquid or gel eyeliner. Curl the lashes and apply a few coats of your favorite mascara, I let the bottom lashes naked to make my eyes look neater and pure. To finish up the Aquamarine Makeup apply a dramatic eye lashes and it`s done.

Happy birthday to all beauties born in March, Aquamarine is a very beautiful birthstones and I hope you liked my Aquamarine Makeup tutorial, please don`t forget to let me know what you think of this makeup look and follow my blog for more birthstone makeup tutorial. Hugs and kisses :*

Lots of love,

I have always been a huge fan of The Sims franchise and even though everyone is obsessed with the latest Sims 4, I`m still playing the old school Sims. One of the most exciting part of the games is cooking, I always wanted to try out the Sims food myself, so today I`m going to show you how to prepare famous Autumn Salad!

Warm vegetable salads are my favorite meals, they always taste amazing and the flavor of the spices and vegetables opens in a different, unique way. The Sims 3 Autumn Salad is a great choice if you prefer a healthy lunch break, because it feels like a full meal. It took me about 45 minutes to prepare a huge bowl of an Autumn Salad, but you can make a little single portion almost in no time!

The tradition Sims 3 Autumn Salad recipe features all raw ingredients and a red opinion, but to tell the truth I don`t imagine eating raw eggplant, so I`ve decided to slightly upgraded the salad for my own taste. For my Autumn Salad I`ve used a regular onion, because there was no red onion in my supermarket. If you are not a fan of the specific ingredients I used to prepare this salad please feel free to substitute them with any other vegetables you like. Let`s start!

Ingredients you will need for the Autumn Salad:

Yellow Bell Pepper (red or green)
Salad Leaves (Lettuce or your favorite)
Red or Regular Onion
1 Eggplant
1 Zucchini
Cherry Tomatoes or Regular Tomatoes

Dressing:

Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil
Oregano
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Vinegar or Lime Juice

Yield: 
2 servings

How to prepare the Sims 3 Autumn Salad:

-  Start by washing all of the vegetables and leaves for our Autumn Salad,  rinse the vegetables thoroughly in cold water, making sure to wash away any dirt from the surface of the skin. Let them dry a little on a clean paper tissue.

- Now you can start to slice the vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, onion and tomato). Use a sharp chef's knife to cut them into rings, but be careful while working with the knife. Sprinkle the eggplant rings with salt and let it sit for few minutes - salt will remove bitterness of the eggplant Remove any excess salt by wrapping the eggplant in a kitchen towel or rinse it under the water.

- To make the onion rings tastier I like to marinate them before putting it in the Autumn Salad:

• Slice peeled onion into a thin slices, separate into rings and place in a bowl. 

• Mix sugar, vinegar (lime, lemon juice), warm water and spices. Cover the onion rings with the mixture and let for 30 minutes.

- Heat the cooking pan and add a few drops of vegetable oil, I prefer to use a soybean oil, but a clean sunflower oil is great as well. Fry the zucchini and eggplant on both sides, let them cool down on a clean paper tissue, it will absorb extra oil.

- Place salad leaves in a separate bowl, remove marinated onion rings from the marinate and put it with all of vegetables together. Mix the Autunm Salad with the dressing and let it sit for 10 - 15 minutes. Bon Appetit!

I feel like my cooking skill have increase, just by sharing with you this recipe :) Please let me know in the comment section if you tried out my recipe of the Autumn Salad and if you find cooking posts interesting and useful for you, I`m so excited to hear your opinion! In the future I plan to recreate more Sims 3 food recipes in real life, so stay tuned 

Are you a Sims 3 fan?

Lots of love,

beauty blogger skin care maybelline review

Hi girls, today`s post I want to dedicate to all dry lips sufferers, because I know how hard is to maintain a smooth `baby like` lip skin. Most of the regular lip balms does not offer a long term and deep hydration, but from no one you can forget about dry and chopped lips. You know why, because I`ve found an awesome solution of this problem - Baby Lips Balm & Blush by Maybelline. It is not only super moisturizing product, but it is cute as well!

Maybelline Baby Lips balm has a very smooth non - sticky texture, it feels very lightweight on the lips and a rich moisturizing formula deeply hydrates the skin. But what I like the most about this lip balm is that you can use it as a cream blush on your cheeks. It gives a very sheer and natural hue to the skin and dewy finish, usually applied over the foundation and concealer - a perfect variant for everyday makeup look. The Baby Lips balm glides on easily and works the best for those, who have a dry and combined skin type. 

Overall, I`m totally obsessed with this lip balm, it has a nice soft scent and gives a fresh spring hint of color to the lips and cheeks. It is available in four gorgeous colors, each with it`s own sweet scent - Innocent Peach. Flirty Pink. Booming Ruby. Shimmering Bronze, you can check the shades and the description on the official Maybelline website here. The Baby Lips Balm & Blush by Maybelline retails at $4.99 for 4,5 gr (0.16 oz.) of the product and I think it is a great deal. If your lips are dry and thirsty I definitely recommend you to try out this cute lips balm, you will feel an instant relief and your lips will be silky smooth for hours.

Need a special intense treatment for your dry lips? Check out my review on the amazing Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, because your lips deserve to be pampered as well!

Lots of love,

Lingerie style in fashion is one of the most delicate and feminine trends of 2017. Soft silky fabrics, filigree airy lace and bodycon shapes will be popular throughout the spring 2017 season as well and today I wanted to show you this Pleuche Lace Panel Mini Cami Dress by Rosegal store. This velvet dress perfectly illustrates how the lingerie style should be - bold, cheeky but moderately.

I will be honest with you - mini dresses are not my story, but I absolutely in love with this dark burgundy velvet dress. The quality of the dress is very good, it is made of soft fabric that is pleasant on touch and to the body as well. The sizes on the Rosegal website for this dress are accurate, I`m wearing size S on the pictures and it looks pretty good. Personally I think it is more of a night out dress, but if you combine it with a classy trench and the same classy shoes you can wear it on a daily basis as well.

I am really happy with the look and the bargain price of this dress, it was just a little bit over $16. It is nice to have something a little bit different in your closet, this velvet dress definitely challenges my fashion style. Hopefully from no on I`ll be more brave and wear mini dresses more frequent. Don`t forget to demonstrate your flawless fashion taste on the Rosegal Style Gallery for a chance to win up to $100 cash coupon. 

Lots of love,
Liz
