Moulin Rouge // Paris

Posted on March 4, 2013

I’ve decided to go to Paris for fashion week at the very last minute, but as it turned out, it was the best decision ever made. Staying in St. Germain, eating best almond croissants and macaroons, walking through Montmare, traveling by Paris Metro (yeah, it’s dirty but I love it), partying in Le Pompon and just spending time with my blogger friends, between the shows and taking streetstyle photos – sounds like one of the best weeks I’ve had for a long time. I find this city one of the most beautiful and inspiring places in the world. And very romantic.

I want to show you my outfit from Saturday. We took these pictures in Montmartre, near Moulin Rouge and La Place Pigalle. It was rather cold, much colder than London. I was wearing a sweatshirt, black skinny jeans, white pumps, Kurt Geiger bag, Misbhv cap and a new coat from COS which I bought thinking about spring, not winter. So being honest I was absolutely freezing cold. Thank god it was warm and sunny today.

Madrid Diary

Posted on January 28, 2013

Last week I had spent two amazing days in Madrid as you could have seen on my Instagram. I took part in the C&A Reimagine Design event together with my other blogger friends, where we could exclusively meet eight of the next-to-be designers of Europe. At last you can see some pictures I managed to take during my short trip.
Madrid welcomed us with really nice and warm weather and comparing to other european countries 10 degrees centigrade wasn’t bad at all.

We were accommodated in the Hotel Silken Puerta América. My room was on the 11 floor with an amazing view of Madrid. Right before our flights back home I went for a short walk together with Anjelica (who is so so nice) and took some outfit photos. I was wearing my new Muubaa shearling jacket, velvet pants and Kurt Geiger sandals. On the last photo you can see the beautiful sunrise at the Heathrow airport right before my flight to Madrid. Though it wasn’t that nice when I was coming back to London. My flight was cancelled because of the snow and I had to spent a few hours at the airport in Madrid hoping I could come back home that day. Luckily everything ended well:) Thank you C&A team for the invitation to Madrid, Anne for big support at the airport and for helping me with flying back home and of course my dear Ricky and Anjelica for the shots you took of me.

Alicepoint x Smirnoff // Trip to Paris video

Posted on January 15, 2013

As you know I’m totally addicted to Instagram. Taking Iphone photos  is my daily routine My close friends know something about it;)
This time I worked with Smirnoff to test out Mixhibit, an application that pulls content from the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and creates a cool video that can be shared on your social media profiles. I had a lot of fun choosing my favourite photos from Paris to show you the whole story of my amazing trip to France in November. Good memories have came back!
Creating the video is really easy. You just have to visit and then follow the instructions. You can see my video from Paris here.

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:)
