make up magic

Another great make up buy!! I just love how creative Benefit is...
Just bought the Benefit pore professional – and it works! It leaves your skin really soft and it does look more even. I used it before the foundation.

"I’d rather wear a unique story"

After some time looking for the perfect gold hoop earrings – I found them!

Just love the shape and the fact they are unique and original – counting the days to receive “another” present at my desk.
I bought them in Boticca.com – I love their slogan “I’d rather wear a unique story”.




other unique pieces that I'm flirting with:

Copy cat

Just spotted Chirara wearing my favourite boots! It was my best buy this winter – remember my winter inspiration post?

The boots are cool but above all so comfortable.
You can buy them in Asos. Com!

The real life balance bracelets

Engrave your resolutions for the year. Loved this bracelet from Max and Chloe which I spotted in Lala's blog.
"Fear less, hope more. Eat less, Chew more. Talk less, say more. Hate less, love more. And all good things are yours.”

Keep your inspiration close to you

measure the pulse of life

Perfection

J Mendel's collection is like a candy store. Elegant, timeless and with the right pop's of colour. Amazing!
Love the orange shoes and lipstick combination.

Hold your breath

It starts with a vision “ I had the craziest dream last night about a girl who was turned into a swan” and it then begins to transport you in to a dark and twisted personality of Nina where you struggle to understand what is real or not. Had to close my eyes in the more violent scenes but holding my breath I ventured to continue watching..and as my friend V. said not sure if it was “disturbingly amazing or amazingly disturbing”.

One of the best films I have watched in the last years.

"La mode se démode, le style jamais"

Olivia Palermo has style and is beautiful. Even if you don’t like fashion you can see that.

In “The City “she does not come across as the nicest person – but well – its only reality TV, which makes you wonder how much is actually real.
She always gets the accessories right – and that just makes the difference from being fashionable and having style.

I’m in love with her rings and clutch. And that McQueen dress is perfection! The amazing rose ring is from Iranian designer Leila Kashanipour and you can buy it in http://boticca.com/LeilaKashanipour

Making a statement

This what I call a statement necklace. As usual, Channel’s new face - Blake Lively - makes it work. She should focus in one “asset” at a time..but well, I’m sure it was just another warm day in the Upper East Side.

This amazing piece is from NY designer Suzanna Dai and you can get it in http://boticca.com/

Back to basics

A Tweed jacket is an easy choice for BFF – its happy to go out during the day or night. Happy with silk or jeans. I recommend one!

the sales are on

I decided to invest in some key basic pieces...hopefully they will last.

Timeless and classic: a black blazer from Sandro and a black cashmere deep v-neck from Zadig & Voltaire (the kind you can dress down or dress it up – and it just feels so comfortable)

2011 around the globe

Funny enough I started the year planning travelling. This has definitely made me slowdown on my shopping habits..which is quite a challenge, if you consider that London is inundated with sales.. But who needs another cashmere jumper with 80% discount from Ralph Lauren or pair of jeans from GAP at flee market prices, when you can have NEW YORK city in June, MEGEVE in February, PARIS is January, THAILAND in March and RIO in April...all this accompanied by some of the people I love the most: my friends!!


So besides all the fashion, shopping and people watching that I usually write about..this year I plan to write a lot more on my travels and who knows..even the decoration of THAT new house I would love to buy in 2011.

Lets start dreaming!



My Paris..
