Dark shades

A darker make-up palette for a new season.

Monday, August 18, 2014


I feel.  I need.  I want.  All of it!
Current cravings...

The Look.

The Personality.




The Girls.

The Rest...

One of those days

One of those days where the weather is crap...with heavy rain
A heavy heart...
Lack of sleep...
And you think to yourself...I got this.

Up close and personal

'Damn, Damn girl, you do it well
And I thought you were innocent
Took this heart and put it through hell
But still you're magnificent'

On a more of a serious note, I used to be really closed up and horrifyingly insecure about everything.  That's obviously changed *hint the photos* and the more I grow, the more I feel and aspire to be the woman I've always wanted to be.  Not to be vain or anything, but so far I am happy with who I'm becoming.   I feel good.

Images that made me go "Ahhh..."

Last month, our class of 2014 were one of the lucky ones to be addressed by the likes of the writer and editor of Harper's Bazaar Justine Picardie and photographer Nick Knight.  I am sure none of my fellow graduates would disagree with me when I say that we only hope to be as successful and humble as these leading figures.
And if that isn't the case, I would gladly settle to be captured in the dreaminess that is evoked through Nick Knight's photographs.  His speech was short and kind.  And what a visionary man!

And then there are ads that make me go 'Ooh la la, I want me some of that!'  Like this Equinox ad that makes me want to join the gym just because... 

And I don't drive yet but I am definitely tempted to spend my whole life saving for a Lexus.

Tom Ford.  Always appetizing.  Need I say more?

Claudia Schiffer in those Guess? Jeans makes me want to live in high waisted, booty hugging jeans and dance along to Whitney Houston's tune I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

But I will settle for what I have for the time being.

Abandoned and sharp

Last month I went on some sort of tour around London and went to Bermondsey.  Who knew this place existed?! But to be fair, I have been living in London for 5 years and I have yet to fully explore this quirky city and its corners.
Back when I visited this square hidden behind the great walls of some sorts of grounded buildings and bridge, there was an art exhibition in the middle of the square of the Vitrine Gallery.
Without any further ado, I present you the work that was on display then and how much I liked the contrasting elements.  In a case where Art is metamorphosed into Fashion, I think this particular Art would work really well as fabric prints...I will leave that for you to judge too.

Vamos para a praia

I have not gone on holiday with my little sister since we were kids and this was our first holiday together in years.  We went to the beach every day...and Andre, who's family was just the sweetest, welcomed us to their beautiful home.  Even with the language barrier, they made us feel right at ease. 
It was hot, fun, exciting and we loved it!

Wish we could of stayed longer.
