I thought I start writing more about beauty. How’s that for an update? Normally I want my mornings run by quick and smooth but there’re actually a few things that I really like to take care of and put down some extra time on – and that’s my hair and eyes. Yes, I guess it’s like some kind of therapy. So I’m not going to lie. I like spending some extra minutes here. I’ve been really liking Prada’s backslick styling however it’s a bit “too wet” for me so I went back in the 90′s archives. And finally I found the ultimate hair styling on Madame Christy Turlington. Sleek, sun kissed hair and on top of that an au naturel make-up finish. I say this look is perfect for work in the spring time and when leaving the office just top it with Chanel red lipgloss no. 60. Simply this is a beauty perfection and then of course Turlington herself will always be the every lasting beauty bomb.
Sales are still going on and I strongly recommend you to update your wardrobe with some fine accessories. For quite a while I’ve been looking for the perfect belt – you know that you could wear both day and night time. This black leather belt with gold details from Saint Laurent has exactly these elements that I’m talking about. It’s classic yet with an edge to make me go outside my comfort zone, which I like. I say it goes perfect with any denim jean or a dress. Get it @Mytheresa.com.
A hello from last night! Me and these crazy wonderful girls Katarina and Marie (check out her fab blog here). BISOUS!
I love minimalism with a touch of decadence. Like this big embellished earrings. Totally into that again. If you want to get something that will last this year’s trends and next ones get big earrings. Wear it to a plain white t-shirt and straight denim pants. This will make your everyday ran by smoother and everytime you see yourself in the mirror it will shine back at you. Not so bad, huh? I suggest you put your hair in a ballerina bun or a sleek (backslick) ponytail to accentuate your ears and bone structure.
Happy Thursday! I came across this photo from a business trip to Las Vegas in 2010. Not only missing the heat but Vegas. It’s always a blast! Wearing my fantastic lace dress from Diane von Furstenberg, bracelet by Marc Jacobs, clutch by Luella (so sad the fashion house isn’t around anymore) and sequins heels by Manolo Blahnik.
Let’s do some blog updates! After every New Year’s Eve it feels like there’s a new start in life or optimism to change. I like to think of this as a great opportunity for my blog get pimped. As you might have noticed I have started with some regular posts such as “Weekly Style Notes”, “In the Mood For”, “Instagram Pairs”, outfits, buzz etc which hope you like. If you want me to add anything just shot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or a comment here. I thought I do some instagram updates also since I’m so much quicker there than here. Which I guess is the charm with social media, right?! Anyway here’s some instragram notes from Paris this past weekend. Enjoy!

I’m breathless. These shoes. This collection. Christian Dior’s Haute Couture Collection for Spring 14 is a masterpiece of cutworks in a dreamy wonderworld with pure lightness. However Raf Simons is balancing the cutness well because there’s definitely a sharper statement from the accessory department especially on the footwear, which ever since he took over been pretty much a new world (that blows me off). I like the idea of suspenders on the shoes which tweaks the else feminine and sweetness looking Dior collection. Something I’d like to wear to a pair denim shorts or mini skirt in the spring.
