Favourites From Felix Bühler

Until yesterday I didn't know Felix Bühler but their clothing collections are gorgeous. All the pieces are very simple but the colors and the discrete details make them stand out! 
There is another thing that caught my attention: the prices! Everything seems to have a great quality, their design is super stylish and...the products are affordable!
Here are my favourites:

Can you guess the price? Ok, I am shocked, it costs about 60€! Why didn't I find this brand sooner?! 

Different colours, same price! Love the pink detail, can you tell I am really girly? :)

You can't see but the buttons are made of strass. My favourite is the navy one.

I love this jacket! I mean, don't get me wrong, I hate Winter but the jacket could make the difference... :) I think the first and the third could be mine!

Another love, I could have one of each colour without any problem! This jacket isn't as useful as the previous one though.

I hope you like my five choices from this brand! Does anyone have any of these items? :)

Fixdesign Breeches - Review

This is one review that I really want to write because last Christmas my mom gave me a pair of Fixdesign breeches and since the first time I put them on, I felt they were the most comfortable breeches ever.
First of all, Fixdesign is an Italian clothing brand that has a line exclusively dedicated to horseriders. I don't know how I found the brand but I remember I thought all their products were very trendy, not only because of the colors and shapes but also because of their cute logo!
My mom got me the Cotton Knitting Breeches in navy from the Forever Classic collection and this year they have been my best friends.


These breeches were 46€, yes, 46! When I saw the price I couldn't believe because they looked gorgeous to me and usually the good equestrian gear is expensive. Then I tried them and I was even more shocked, they fit way better than all my other breeches and they are the cheapest ones! 
Here is the real proof: expensive doesn't mean good quality and cheap doesn't mean bad quality!


Be careful because Italian clothing sizes are tricky - I am an European 32 but that is an Italian 36. Don't worry because Fixdesign has a size guide.
Also, if you wear, for example, size 32 and sometimes size 34, depending on the breeches, buy the largest size because the breeches are the smallest definition of each size!


The shipping to Portugal was 25€ and I think the shipping shouldn't cost this much!
They ship worldwide.


Overall, I think the breeches are really good: their fabric is good, the details are nice but I've been using them for about 8 months and there are some things that I think the company should try to improve - you can see what I am talking about in the pictures below.

Although they have these little issues, I love them and I can't wait to get more Fixdesign breeches. Also, I would love to see more colours...please, keep their shape (it's fabulous!) but make them in more colours! :)

Luv Inspired Equestrian Collection - Summer 2014 Favourites

Luv Inspired is a Toronto based jewelry company that creates unique pendants, rings, earrings, bracelets and many other accessories.
This company has a gorgeous equestrian collection that is always getting better and better and this Summer's collection is the real proof of what I have just said! The collection reflects our passion for horses and allows us to keep classic looks, I am very impressed so today I decided to, finally, show you my favourite items!

1. Breed Charm/Necklace

I think these are very special and they are custom made. I even think that you can contact them if you want a different breed.

2. Infinite Luck Necklace With Diamonds

This is the necklace! It is the most perfect necklace I have ever seen and it is on the top of my wishlist.

3.  Infinite Luck Diamond Eternity Band

Another beautiful piece, I usually don't wear rings but I think this would look very stylish - does anyone have one like this? Share a pic with me :)

4. Infinite Luck With A Hint Of Colour

The gold necklaces scream Summer, my favourites are the navy and the green. Which would you choose? 
The silver necklaces are more discrete but still very cute, I would choose the ones with the blue and the pink horseshoes. I think I would prefer the Infinite Luck with Diamonds though.

You can get some of these pieces on their website (here) but if you can't find them, you need to email Luv Inspired to order.
Tell me if you have any of these pieces or if you are planning to buy one! :)

Noble Outfitters Ringside Pack - Review

I have always liked backpacks like this one from Noble Outfitters, I think they are all very practical but, for me, the Ringside Pack is the best one because it has plenty of room and it is beautiful!
I used my Ringside Pack for the first time last weekend and, for the first time ever, I didn't have to take more than one backpack for a show, I loved it!
Also, this backpack can be used whenever you want: I used it at a show but I am going to use it everytime I go to the barn!

It has padded and adjustable shoulder straps and a no-slip traction pad on the back of the pack.

It features a helmet compartment with ventilation panels and you can adjust its size. I love this, it is so easy to carry my helmet!

The backpack has stretch pockets for whips or crops with Duraflex quick clip closure - which I love! - and side pockets for gloves, treats or water bottles (as you can see on the picture, I use one of the side pockets for my water bottle.

Now let me show you what is inside of my Ringside Pack:

This is the smallest and safest pocket so I like to keep my wallet here.
This compartment is padded therefore I keep my iPad here but I will also use it for my computer.

You can identify your backpack, this is always important!

This my favourite compartment! It has two smaller pockets where I keep my sunscreen, my belt and many other things. I also use it for my clothes but you can use it for your horses' tack. Plus, the gold lining makes finding clothing and tack easy. 

The second smallest pocket is where I keep my sunglasses, my contact lenses case, my iPhone and, of course, my tack room keys that won't disappear again as you can see on the second picture! :)

You can personalize your Noble Outfitters Ringside Pack with a free patch. You have over 20 styles to choose from but unfortunately this offer only applies to North America.

Overall, I recommend this product because it is a high quality product and it makes my equestrian life easier. I did some research and I can tell you this is the best backpack in terms of design and funcionality vs. price so if you want one riding backpack, I would tell you to choose this one.
If you like it, you can know more here.

Horsewear Wash-Bag

I always feel my mom wants to kill me when I want to use the washing machine to wash my horse's things...well, I understand her but from now on we won't have the same problem! I found the Horsewear Wash-Bag and it seems great and a huge help!

The wash-bag acts like a filtration system for your washing machine, it works by retaining all horse hair inside the bag during the wash cycle, whilst allowing a free flow of water through the bag to clean your items.
After washing, any trapped horse hair can be easily shaken out of the bag and it is ready for re-use.

With the wash-bag you can wash saddle pads, under rugs, stable rugs, exercise sheets, coolers/fleeces, summer/fly rugs, girths, travel boots, bandages and much more! It also prevents buckle damage to your machine when washing items such as girths and rugs.

This bag seems to be really cool! Does anyone use it or know anyone who does? I would love to hear your experiences!
If you want one of this bags you can get it here.
