CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART

CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART

With Chanel showing its new collection this morning in Paris (in an hour or so) and only a few shows left on the calendar, Paris Fashion Week is almost coming to my end. And with it, my fomo. Yes, I am bummed I am not in Paris and yes I am bummed that I can’t …

U / ME TIME, (YO)U TIME

U / ME TIME, (YO)U TIME

Ohh how I love myself a regular getaway to the beauty salon. It is something that I don’t do often enough, but I am slowly learning to treat myself every once in a while. I usually ‘just’ get a massage, since it is something I strongly believe one needs from time to time (especially after …

BLUE PLEATS

BLUE PLEATS

I only realized this morning that all I packed for Paris is monochromatic stuff. It’s pretty much all my closet contains (I know), but it’s funny I packed one head to toe white outfit, one head to toe grey and then I stepped out in blue pleats yesterday morning, worn with a matching blue top …

FOOLPROOF FOUNDATION

FOOLPROOF FOUNDATION

Liquid, powder or cream: finding the right foundation is both a tricky and risky business. You could be pushing your eye game with the latest palette. Or rocking the most sought after lipstick in the world. If you are wearing mismatching, flakey or shiny foundation everything looks off. It simply keeps your face together, hence …
