Spring in Notting Hill with Calvin Klein

Posted on March 10, 2014

Spring in Notting Hill looks beautiful and unreal, like in the puzzle I used to play with my grandma when I was a little girl. Actually, it is the first week of blooming trees, so it will be prettier and prettier during next two weeks, I guess.
Calvin Klein asked me to share my euphoria moment to celebrate their new fragrance Endless Euphoria. I have no doubt it is exactly spring time in Notting Hill with all those blooming trees, sun, blue sky and high temperature outside. I feel so lucky to live here and be able to enjoy it every single day. So if you’re planning to come to London soon, do it within the next two weeks, the weather forecast is promising. Also, I’d love to know what’s your endless euphoria moment ?

Lancôme x Alber Elbaz

Posted on June 24, 2013

These are the most beautiful make up products that I got asked to test. Alber Elbaz, the creative director at Lanvin did contributed to this limited collection for Lancôme by designing the product prints. The cosmetics are in beautiful boxes with the lovely sketch prints on them featuring one of four motifs: blue stars, red hearts, pink polka dots and green heavily lashed lids. The collection contains eye make up products like mascaras, false lashes and eye shadows. Alber Elbaz explains, that “eyes are the new fashion accessory”. I think that this sentence is the quintescence of Elbaz’s collection.

I’ve already tried the Hypnose Star mascara and Doll Eyes Palette, because these are the essentials of my daily make up. But I can’t wait to test the false eye lashes soon for some special occasion. I won’t forget to let you know about my feelings.

last month’s favourites

Posted on March 17, 2013

Three photos of some of my favourite things I got last month. First of all, lovely mini perfume bottles. I use Commes de Garcon & Paco Rabanne the most but actually I love all of them. Sometimes just looking at them is enough to make me happy:)
Then the pink, purple and blue Essie nailpolish. I died my hair into cold, lilac blonde last week (in Easton Regal, the best salon in town! ), so they go perfect with my new hair color. Usuallly I can’t decide which one to use, so next time I plan apply each color for one nail.
Finally my ACNE tank. I couldn’t decide between the one with ‘Collage’ (here) and the one with ‘Music’, finally decided for the MUSIC one. The reason is pretty easy, my life would be meaningless without music (as lame as it sounds :))
And of course white bag and heart shaped sunglasses from Kurt Geiger. I’m totally in love with the Kurt Geiger s/s13 collection! So happy to have these two items in my closet for spring. Now I’m waiting for the sun in London!

random photos

Posted on January 2, 2013

Welcome to 2013 guys! Hope you all had an amaaazing NYE!
Today I want to show you a few random photos. Last month I got a lot of new cosmetics , make up products and other cool stuff to test. I have finally decided to take some pictures and recommend you my favourite ones.
I get YSL products to test quite often ( thank you Ykone ! ). I’m a big fan of YSL cosmetics, especially black Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils and YSL Touche Eclat foundation. I don’t really put foundation all over my face, maybe sometimes for special occasions. But I often use it to neutralize my under-eye darkness. It works way better than any corrector!

An other thing worth recommending is my new  Bourjois pink lipstick. As you know I dyed my hair lilac, so I had to change my lipsticks from warm orange to cold pink. And this one suits me just perfectly.
And some other accesorries:
– COS white purse, stolen from my sister. She loves all scandinavian design pieces from architecture, interiors, to clothes and other little things. It’s great to keep my (dear) Iphone safe in this little white beauty.
STORM London watch, because one never has enough golden watches. It’s so classy, that it makes every outfit complete
– Urban Outfitters little notebook. I prefer to write my daily schedule in a normal notebook rather than on my Iphone. As you all know, the Iphone battery is so so bad and it’s better to have a paper back up for when it dies. Plus it’s nice to use a pen from time to time, like in the school  No no, just kidding, I don’t want to go back to school
– Chanel Chance and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfumes which I got from my mum on Christmas. These perfumes will be ‘mine’ till the end of my live. They make me feel like a chic woman. Love them both.
– Shiseido make up. I got a big box with Shiseido products some time ago. My favourite one is the smoky eyes eye shadow.
Regal Rose knuckle rings

My absolute number one are the Phenome cosmetics which I got to test some time ago. No words can describe how beautifully they smell. Not to mention their design. My favourite is the body butter – it makes your skin baby soft. The Rebalance Shampoo makes my hair looks healthy and shiny, even after bleaching and diying it a few times recently, first into white blond, then lilac, then ginger ( ‘a little’ accident during my last visit in hairdressers which I want to forget) and then finally light blue (haven’t shown you yet! ). And of course body scrub, which I use everytime I take a bath. Now almost everyday, because in my new flat I have a bath, and not a shower (Yay!).

Amazing Cara on the cover of the newst i-D issue. I’m going to read it today before going to bed. Can’t wait haha!  And my new heels from COS. I’ve bought them a few days ago in size 36. And after puting two thick insoles inside I can slowly walk in them (I have very very small feet, size 35 usually). I’m still waiting for some bigger brands start to making shoes in 35. I don’t want to buy shoes in kids section  Pleaseeee!

And finally an A-MA-ZING view of London from the window in my new flat. I’m a lucky girl, huh! It’s really nice to wake up every morning and see the beautiful sun above all the big buildings. Then drink tea or coffee for breakfast:)
