But what if you were too busy or couldn't find a good present? This post is for all the people who are desperately searching for a good Christmas gift in the last minute, here are some ideas that will save you. I promise she'll like her present. :)

#1 Perfume

It's always a good choice to count on big brands and famous fragrances. If you know what brands the person likes or what scents they prefer it'd be easier. If you don't, you can always choose something new or ask the shop assistant for advice.

Last Sunday Dolce & Gabanna's new collection blessed the runway at #mfw #Milanofashionweek in Milano with royalty vibes, bold prints, metallic elements and overall beauty. Not only did all the outfits look great, but all the details were breathtaking. So I can guarantee you we'll be having a red+gold+queen glam spring and summer of 2018.

Lace, embroidery, sequins and shiny jewelry were the signature characteristic accents of the new collection of the brand. Game card and royalty references were everywhere to be seen - from the runway stage design to the choice of hairstyles and makeup. Dolce & Gabbana rocked the social media game with the #DGQueenOf❤️ hashtag. I watched the whole show live on Instagram and I liked it so much that I seriously couldn't help but rewatch it like twice later haha :)

Here are some of my favorite looks although I can honestly say that all the outfits looked stunning.

SMALL VACATION BAG ESSENTIALS

It's officially vacation season! Your feeds and stories are full of photos from Mykonos and Ibiza (as Marianna mentioned yesterday). So it's the best time for rocking a super comfy little super Instagrammable bag right?

Well I recently went on vacation and I survived the whole trip carrying around with me just a little crossbody. Honestly a dream come true since the hot weather and my wild hair are not really friends of bags and their handles. But it's pretty hard to get used to such a small bag at first. You're a little bit uncomortable not being able to put whatever you used to having with you all the time in it. And you always end up needing something you left home. :/

So I decided to give you some advice on how to fit everything you need in a small bag. Here is my list of bag essentials + tips and tricks:

#1. Of course you're gonna take your documents and some money. And the keys or card for the hotel/place you are staying. This is like a rule, nobody forgets that I think. So it comes first.

#2. This already leaves you with your bag half-full tho. :D But second thing is your phone. We use our phones for so many things nowadays it's basically like carrying a magic wand in your bag.

#3. You'd like to have a pocket mirror. You WILL want to know if your make up smudges because off the hot weather or if you have something in your teeth because you just tried some new food because you're on vacation. There are many cute designs so the options are basically endless, go ahead and have fun picking yours. I have a fave and I carry it with me all the time buuuuut that didn't stop me from seeing some really cute ones at Orsay the other day and I guess I'm getting one next time I visit the shop haha.

#4. You only have about an inch of space left. You can take whatever you want that fits here. :D I personally choose to take a lipstick or lipgloss. I have a friend who takes a small pocket perfume. Everybody's choice is diferent but you gotta pick a really small thing.

'What about everything else?? I want to take so many other things!' I know, I know. But i you want to only wear a small bag you gotta give up on some of the things you are used to carrying in your cute big backpack or lovely big crossbody bag. You have the essentials, you can survive! :D You can put your sunglasses in your hair if you take them off not in your sunglasses case in your bag, and yes, you're gonna regret this whole thing if it starts raining. But hey, you are on vacation, don't overthink, just have some fun. Oh, and small bags look so cute in photos. ;)
