Charles and Ron Fashion Show - Amare Argentum

Hello my fellow readers,

On the 30th of September I attended the Charles and Ron fashion show at Birkirkara Square. The event began with the two Birkirkara bands playing together and later on in the evening the fashion show started.

Charles and Ron showed the Autumn/Winter collection which goes by the name of Amare Argentum. The collection was filled with colours but the most colours that stood up where the blues and purples.

I love how there are a lot of different materials in the collection and how a lot of items are versatile and can be worn both during the day and night. The print of Maltese filigree was also used on most of the garments. I really like how they included lace, sequins and tulle in the collection. Oh! and the bags and shoes are to die for <3

I loved every thing but these next ones are my favourites:

A big thanks to jciapparaphotography / for the above photos.

This is what I wore for the show:

As always the duo impressed all of us. It was my first time seeing this collection in person and I was amazed, its even nicer from the pictures. I would like to congratulate Charles and Ron for their hard work and also on the newest (and previous) collection that they just showed in New York and Los Angeles.

3INA Products Review | Lourdes Gio

Hello my fellow readers,

As a lot of you might know 3INA is a makeup brand that is available in Malta, with four stores including one in Qormi, Mosta, Sliema and Valletta.

I have had some products from them for a while and always wanted to review them. So here is a review about all four products that I have purchased.

Cream Eyeshadow (Dark brown - 314):
I love the cream eyeshadow! first of all let's talk about the amazing colours they have, and I am not only talking about the cream eyeshadows. I was a bit late to the cream eyeshadow craze and I never looked back since I bought one of my own. Don't get me wrong, I still prefer normal compact eyeshadow over the cream one but my point is that I find this really good. When I was looking at what colour I should get, I couldn't decide because I liked every single one of them.

I like how the product sets in very easily and will stay on your eyelids for hours. But I also don't like the fact that it dries a bit quickly on the eye and doesn't give you time for blending it in correctly. I like to wear it on top of an eyeshadow base for better results and to last longer. This cream eyeshadow can be worn either on its own or underneath a compact/powdered eyeshadow.

Eyeshadow (Rose gold - 111):
Lately I have been liking a lot the neutral tones for eyeshadow. I immediately fell in love with the colour and had to buy it. The eyeshadow is very pigmented and its a good formula. There is not a lot to say about this, apart that its great and am looking forward to try other colours.

Lipstick (Burgandy - 111):
If you come to see my makeup collection you will find multiple dark colored purples and reds and burgandies, this is because I just love these colours!
The lipstick is quite good, it is shiny and a bit glossy but a very nice strong colour. The down side is that it is not long lasting at all. Last time I wore it, by the first half hour the inner sides of my lips were already very faded out and when I drank and ate something it all came off.

Nailpolish (Burgandy - 138):
Just like lipsticks, I own a lot of burgandy coloured nail polish. I bought the nail polish and the lipstick the exact same colour to match. The polish is very good and mostly, one application would be enough for the colour to show. It lasts about 4 days on my nails, which is mostly how much all of my nail polishes last.

Over all I like the brand and am looking forward to try other items from 3INA. Whats your favourite product from this brand?

Thank you for reading,

Elizabetta Franchi Fashion Show | Lourdes Gio

Hello my fellow readers,

A few days ago a second Elizabetta Franchi shop opened in Malta and a fashion show was held in front of the shop situated in South Street, Valletta. When my guest and I arrived we where welcomed with drinks and some nibbles and after some time the show started.

I was amazed by how beautiful the line is, and I really want to get my hands on something from them one day. The line was a pretty basic coloured one ranging from light blue, light and baby pink, black and white.

I was surprised to see that the line also consisted of some sports wear. I didn't know that the brand did sports wear too. There were also everyday outfits, office wear and evening. The collection also consists of shoes and bags.

For my outfit I chose to wear a very soft white/cream blouse from Matalan, a floral pair of trousers from Zara and my favourite white heels from New Look. I also wore my vintage wooden bag from a bazaar in Valletta (featured here). Earings are from Accessorize and watch is from Daniel Wellington.
