holidays in the winter wonderland

25 Jan

hello lovelies!

i haven’t blogged in a while… again… well instead of making up excuses, i’m just going to power through!

i was away for three weeks over the winter holidays, i went to switzerland to celebrate christmas and new years with my family and friends in the mountains, it was beautiful!
(the only reason i will give for not blogging while there, is the internet connection sucked- like really sucked.)
here are a few snapshots i took with my phone while going on walks or mini-breaks on the slopes, i hope you enjoy them as much as i did!

halloween recap

6 Nov

lovelies, i know i promised you my costume pictures on thursday, but who was i kidding, right?
you knew i wouldn’t deliver on time, and i thank you for your understanding, but here we go, that’s me as a witch:

i had to take care of a few things on thursday, before i left for a weekend trip on friday, and didn’t have time to blog- sorry!

the cute hat is from claire’s accessories, the corset i got via amazon. it was a bit uncomfortable, but it looked cool and made my waist tiny- definitely worth it! the peplum skirt is from h&m. (sorry about the picture quality)

one of my favorite things about the costume was how my eye- makeup turned out! i used a liquid gel liner (from deborah milano) to get a cat eye, and then instead of making a mess with unsteady fingers, I used eyeshadow tattoo! unfortunately i can’t remember the brand, but I got it from claire’s as well. it was beyond easy to apply, and looked super cool! my mascara is from kiko.


i used my favorite MAC blusher in desert rose, and russian red lipstick, which i fixed for the evening using lipcote (love that stuff!)
for my nails i used a light silver base coat, topped with a black cracking top coat (both from h&m):

essie turquoise & caicos and mint candy apple

29 Jun

finally a new nail post!
i recently bought two wonderful minty shades, and i wanted to try both of them right away. instant gratification to the max!
let me know what you think of the two shades!

t&c on the left, m-c-a on the right

i thought that painting each hand in a different color, with the contrasting ring finger nail would look cool. and it did! the difference between the two shades is quite distinct, even in the consistency! the more covering pastel mint candy apple has a thicker texture, and i love the light pastel blue. turquoise & caicos is more liquid, i needed three coats to get complete coverage (mint candy apple needed only 2 coats), but it’s so worth the extra effort! the color is a fresh tiffany blue, and both shades are such fun summer colors! these two colors (aswell as corals and oranges) would look awesome with a silver or gold glitter top coat, don’t you think?
have you tried these or similar shades?
what colors do you like to wear most?

work outfits of the days – nails and accessories

9 May

from the title you can deduce that i decided to break it up into two posts, so that it doesn’t get too long.

without further ado, i give you the nails:

model’s own polishes

these are the colors that i was telling you about in a previous post – i couldn’t wait to try them one by one,  so i did them all (but the blue, i opted for turquoise because i wanted to see what it looked like). my favorites are the yellow and the pink, they are the two that are pastelliest… the orange is pretty, but normal, like i wouldn’t call it pastel orange, same with the lilac and turquoise- very pretty, but not light enough to be truly pastels.

the rings:

arabic calligraphy ring

got this in egypt at one of the many silver jewellery stores.

cameo brooch ring

what makes this cameo ring special is that even though it has rhinestones, it’s not tacky!

feline face ring

this was an awesome find at american vintage, a thrift store in huntington beach.

thomas sabo butterfly charm

a gift, so pretty and filigrane!

LV belt, Melissa Agnoletti necklace

this belt is actually the belt part of a vintage louis vuitton fanny pack (like the one the employees wear in the store, but vintage). i wear the bag part as a clutch, and the strap as a belt. the necklace is by melissa agnoletti, an italian accessories designer that is all the rage at the moment.that’s it for the accessories part, stay tuned for the outfits!

forgotten outfits of the days

22 Apr

right, so here are two outfits that i had totally forgotten about!

both were worn in march, when the weather was so beautiful for a few days (unlike now, a month later it’s raining and cold again- boooo! )

colored layers

overshirt: h&m
top: zara
jeans: 7 for all mankind
shoes: chloé
bag: louis vuitton
bracelet: fossil

i got the fossil bracelet as an early birthday present from my mom’s friend… i was so touched that she got me something so special and beautiful! i’m actually thinking of getting the key tattooed on my ribcage, but instead of the butterfly, the cat design i showed you in an earlier post… what do you think?

pastel-metallics

top: zara
jeans: stradivarius
shoes: wittner australia
bag: louis vuitton

can i just say that i absolutely am in love with my shiny silver brogues? they are too cute, and such a statement! when i found the gray shirt with the metallic underweave at zara, i had to have it- my mind already paired it with the shoes. no brainer!
