Suri Cruise stilista


Abbiamo già avuto modo di notare più volte la passione di Suri Cruise per i vestiti e per la moda in generale, non è un caso che la figlia di Tom Cruise e Katie Holmes sia sempre vestita come una piccola donna ogni volta che viene fotografata dai paparazzi, per non parlare della sua ormai nota passione per le scarpe con il tacco. Ma a quanto pare Katie non solo preferisce comprarsi dei vestiti piuttosto che dei giocattoli ma è solita modificarli secondo i suoi gusti. In una recente intervista, infatti, sua madre Katie ha rivelato che di tanto in tanto sua figlia desidera modificare i suoi vestiti, ad esempio tagliare le maniche, accorciarli o fare altri tipi di modifiche e lei puntualmente si rivolge ad una sarta per accontentare la sua bambina.


Secondo i suoi genitori, infatti, Suri ha un vero e proprio talento e loro vogliono assolutamente aiutarla a svilupparlo, per questo accontentano praticamente ogni sua richiesta.
Secondo Katie, in particolare, sua figlia ha ereditato da lei questa passione per gli abiti. L’attrice, infatti, ha raccontato che quando era incinta di Suri ha disegnato lei stessa alcuni abiti per la sua bambina, scegliendo perfino i tessuti che dovevano essere utilizzati. A realizzarli, però, sono state delle sarte visto che lei non è capace di cucire. Nonostante questo, tuttavia, sono in molti a credere che Suri sia molto più brava della mamma!

Com’è femminile la giacca da biker (Marlon Brando non ce ne vorrà)

giacche biker per donna

La moda ci ha abituato ai revival. Ma questo era nell’aria da un pezzo: parliamo del giubbotto in pelle da motociclista, il famosissimo “chiodo”. Negli Anni 80 furoreggiava anche se, a dire il vero, è stato l’attore Marlon Brando a lanciarlo nel film Il Selvaggio del 1954. Poi è caduto in po’ in disuso (anche se per una nicchia di rockettare o motocicliste non è mai tramontato)… Fino a quando, qualche stagione fa, non è tornato in primo piano sulle passerelle e nelle collezioni moda. Adesso, poi, è diventata una vera mania. Non c’è fashionista che non esibisca il giubbino di pelle, meglio se bianco, o magari un po’ lucido, di vernice. Perché la maggior parte delle nuove interpretazioni del chiodo sono eleganti e assolutamente femminili (c’è chi lo propone addirittura in rosa). Insomma, il nuovo chiodo non piace tanto per la sua anima rock, quanto per la nuova interpretazione fashion. E chi pensa che sia solo un pezzo sportivo si sbaglia: è perfetto anche con gonne o abiti, che di “rude” non hanno niente. Marlon Brando non ce ne vorrà. La moda ha le sue ragioni. E noi non possiamo ignorarle.

Ambra Angiolini per Aniye By Collezione Primavera/estate 2013

La incontro alla sfilata Autunno/inverno 2013-14 di Aniye By della designer Alessandra Marchi, che ha voluto dedicare una "collezione nella collezione" di sette abiti da sera proprio all'amica e testimonial del suo brand, Ambra Angiolini. E tra la presentazione della nuova campagna Primavera/estate 2013, che la ritrae di una bellezza acqua e sapone, e lo spot televisivo che vedrà protagonista il suo carisma e la sua anima rock, mi svela qualche suo segreto fashion.

Infine, parlando sempre di accessori, passiamo a quello più in voga (per motivi logistici) qui a Shanghai, ovvero l’orologio. Nel 1903 l’italiano Federico Iguzzini arrivò a Shanghai per costruire degli orologi di lusso. Successivamente il brand (www.federicoiguzzini.com) fu rinnovato da Stephane e Lander Michel. Oggi i prodotti Iguzzini, che rispecchiano fedelmente il concetto “Oriente incontra Occidente”, sono uno dei pochi marchi cinesi considerati realmente di lusso e, ogni anno, ne vengono prodotti soltanto tra i 150 e i 200.  Il costo medio di un orologio è di 24 mila RMB (quasi 3 mila euro).

Pretty Ballerinas: customizza il tuo paio di ballerine e rendilo unico e irripetibile!


Qualche tempo fa avevamo parlato in un post della possibilità di customizzare le proprie Converse All Star usufruendo di un servizio offerto sul sito del brand, oggi invece voglio parlarvi di una possibilità molto più semplice: customizzare un paio di ballerine, ma non ballerine qualsiasi, bensì un paio di Pretty Ballerinas....
Sul sito sono catalogate come Bridal Present, ovvero quei regali "spiritosi" che le amiche fanno alla sposa prima del grande giorno, magari facendolo consegnare da un pettoruto omaccione travestito da pompiere durante l'addio al nubilato...Io, in fondo, credo che per chiunque abbia un minimo di dimestichezza con i colori e un po' di estro creativo, possa essere una buona occasione per trasformarsi (o meglio, aver l'illusione di trasformarsi) in designer di scarpe.

Orla Kiely in kitsch print shocker for spring/summer 2013

Okay, so we all know Orla Kiely‘s shtick – or, at least, her bestselling shtick, the stem print that she resurrects each and every season and that sells in its droves to yummy mummies far and wide who need somewhere to store their nappies (this one even comes with a changing matt! the press release trills).
What you may not know is that each season Kiely goes to the hassle of reworking her famous stem print in different colourways, and this season it’s quite the visual treat.



I know, Kiely is hardly reinventing the wheel, but with the navy-yellow colourway I feel as if she’s doing something quite cute and, for her, surprising. The orange will have its devotees, too – although you’d want to have a few bob to spend, because Orla Kiely’s bags don’t come cheap. We’re talking €83 for the cosmetic bag (bottom centre) and €119 for the tote (bottom left), while the baby bag with matching changing mat (top right) will cost you €213. My beloved navy numbers are €108 for the medium laptop bag (top left) and €169 for the tote (bottom right). Orla Kiely bags are available at Kilkenny stores nationwide.
So what about it? Are you an Orla Kiely fan or does she leave you cold?


Fran & Jane

You will have seen mention of Fran & Jane previously on Fash Mob, when I talked about their stellar A/W 2012 collection – and there’s more of the same to come for S/S 2013.



I love their vintage-shaped dresses – keep an eye on next Monday’s Irish Times for a look at more vintage-inspired bits’n'bobs – and the irreverent prints. The orange dress I especially love and may have to grab for a summer wedding; it reminds me of 1970s lino, something you might see in Don and Betty’s house in Mad Men.
You know what the best thing about Fran & Jane is, though? Their sizes are quite generous – I like to think of them as true to size – so you really don’t get that sinking feeling of trying to squeeze yourself into your regular size. And the cuts are gorgeous: really flattering, despite a bevvy of sleeveless wonders this season. Try everything, and prepare to be surprised.


Fran & Jane A/W 2012 – and I want everything

I’m seeing that my saying “I really want this” is becoming less and less meaningful as my covetous nature becomes fully apparent – but I’d rather you know the extent of my vices than lie to you, my faithful (albeit worryingly silent) readers. So though my saying that I want everything from my edit of Fran & Jane’s autumn/winter stock, don’t think that I am lying; I really do want everything. And I already have six wardrobes*.



I’ve never been a huge Fran & Jane fan, although that’s not to say that I have disliked the store; on the contrary, my feelings about the mother-daughter Irish brand have been approaching apathy. My views have been, perhaps, similar to those I hold regarding Karen Millen or even, a lot of the time, French Connection: some nice stuff, bit expensive, handy if you’re looking for wedding garb (attendee, rather than bride).
But this A/W collection has really surprised me – I love so much of it, and I think it’s because the dresses seem to be cut for a much more womanly figure. Take that houndstooth wrap dress on the bottom left (€299) – that folderover would hide a multitude, while the belt will nip in even the most un-nippable waist. I love the plummy, autumnal colours; I love the faux fur collar on that neat little jacket; I love the feminine, floral lace on our lace pencil dress. Don’t get me wrong – nothing here is blowing my mind. I don’t feel like there are any great revolutions taking place. What I do feel, however, is that these are truly beautiful pieces of clothing that will flatter and suit a myriad of occasions. And really, who can say fairer than that?


Sweatshirts



In today’s Irish Times, Róisín Agnew asked four Irish artists to take their creative juices and unleash them on a plain grey sweatshirt. The results were bright and bold; they were understated and cool; they were by turns funny and bittersweet.

Can you keep a secret?



I am now the rather ashamed, I won’t lie, owner of this amazing 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli satchel from My-Wardrobe. I’ve been looking for the perfect black bag for a long time, to go alongside my Céline, a gorgeous tan satchel I bought from Su-Shi.com and my gold knitted leather Stephanie bag from Diane von Furstenberg, and unless I wanted to fork out €1,500 for Proenza Schouler’s PS11, it looked like Phillip was my only man . . .



What’s your most shamefully exorbitant purchase? Also, you can now expect my “what I bought” posts to be very few and far between. It’s going to be packed lunches, a lot of eBaying and Oxfam-only shopping from now on . . .

http://www.irishtimes.com/blogs/fash-mob/2012/08/08/can-you-keep-a-secret/



Monsoon

Yes, it might be a bit of a lookbook day – what, I was having a trawl! – so here’s the next on my list: Monsoon autumn/winter. I’m a really big Monsoon fan (two outfits I’ve featured on the blog have been from Monsoon), so it saddens me that (a) it’s just so gosh darned expensive and (b) we get so shafted when it comes to the euro-sterling exchange rate. Now that the euro is a bit weaker the difference isn’t as glaring, but it’s enough to make shopping online really, really worth it.



I don’t feel as if Monsoon ever really shocks or excites, but it is comfortably predictable – you’ll always get some well-cut, feminine dresses as well as some really great quality winter coats. And this season, the Monsoon Fusion line has amped up a bit further, with these great sequinned sweaters, coming in at €75 each (that squirrel one, beautifully named the “Nutkin”, is all mine though). The dress, centre, is called the Tweetie dress (cute!) and the coat on the bottom right comes in a biscuity caramel colour too and will set you back €230 which, correct me if I’m insane, isn’t all that much for a good, lined winter coat. All too often I spy a winter coat I like, only to realise it’s made of paper and about as warm as a dip in the 40 foot.

Atterleyroad.com launches – here are my picks!

I have no idea where I heard of Atterley Road or when I signed up for their updates, but today, in my inbox, there it was: “Atterley Road has launched so claim your £25 gift card now.” Top tip, retailers – it is very unlikely that I will ever receive a discount code, voucher or special offer that I will ignore. So obviously I popped on over to see what Atterley Road had going on.
And let me tell you: it is lovely. “Lovely” sometimes seems a bit of an insipid word, perhaps pleasant, but uninspiring, and in a way these adjectives could be levelled at Atterley Road; it reminds me of the wardrobe of a very stylish 30-something with a really classic dress sense who loves Whistles and Hobbs for workwear, wears Levis, MiH and Petit Bateau at home, and might indulge in a spot of Farhi or Filippa K for a Saturday night.
This is not where you’ll find your standout prints by the likes of Peter Pilotto – nor will you find Markus Lupfer’s sequined vampire kiss sweaters, or 3.1 Philip Lim’s Marvel comic-inspired pieces. But there is something really great about an online store that really knows who its customer is – though I love Asos, for example, I do sometimes find myself exhaustedly trawling through dress after dress before I find one thing I actually like. And, of course, it’s always great to discover new online boutiques. If you’re me and have an online shopping problem.
Given that I do have said online shopping problem, I did some virtual shopping, and picked out the three pieces I would buy, if I hadn’t blown my most recent paycheck on paying for my holiday and, y’know, rent and food.

Sephora by OPI: Safari Luxe Collection

Somebody queue Toto’s “Africa” – cause we’re about to take a little trip.
Go wild this spring with Sephora by OPI’s Safari Luxe Collection. Inspired by animal-print fabrics, snakeskin pumps, and stacks of gold bracelets, the collection takes after one of the hottest trends to hit the runways: safari chic. “We came up with a nail lacquer collection as stylish and fun as the trend itself,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI VP and Artistic Director. “And just like a leopard-print scarf spices up an outfit, each summery shade adds instant edginess to your wardrobe.”



Shades include (from left to right): Caught With My Khakis Down, Wild About Shimmer, I Don’t Bite, A Color That Can’t Be Tamed, Once a Cheetah, Always a Cheetah and Don’t Feed the Hand Models.
I absolutely, positively MUST have Caught With My Khakis Down and will be stopping by Sephora this week!

If you’d like to make a quick change with animalistic results, try their fun Chic Prints in Giraffe, Leopard or Zebra. These easy-to-apply, precut strips of varying widths last two days on either fingers or toes and provide a fast and fun way to update any look instantly.
Read this: “One set of Chic Print for Nails contains 16 nail patches of varying widths, for a one-time application to fingers or toes. The nail patch is a solid-film material with an adhesive back that is activated by friction. The warmth from friction creates conformability, allowing the patch to fit over the compound curves of your nails and seal onto the nail bed. Removes easily by rubbing and peeling off.”
Ingenius! Find these products at your local Sephora starting in May, and of course, at Sephora.com.








Did you have a chance to check out the Disney Cinderella Collection, Sephora Collection Color Daze Blockbuster or Sephora by OPI Tinsel Town Collector’s Set? They’re all fabulous gifts for a girlfriend – or yourself! – this Christmas.

Buy it Now: Sephora Ultra Shine Mini Lip Gloss Set

Besides the Sephora by OPI Holiday Mini Blockbuster Set, which I labelled my most favourite stocking stuffer of the season, I also was able to get my hands on:
Sephora Color Wand for Lips Sephora Collector’s Edition I.T. Brush Set  NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette
… and more.




I’ll try to squeeze in a few reviews before long – especially the NARS palette (heaven!!!) – but for the moment, I want you to run to your nearest Sephora for the Ultra Shine Mini Lip Gloss Set. A $67 value, it’s on sale for just $11.00! (Online; in-store $17)
So why exactly do I love this set? Simply put, it marries the best of sparkle, shine and moisturizing goodness, all in convenient, easy to tote packaging. Think of it as “lip balm meets dazzle gloss”.
And while the set is obviously suited to holiday soirees, I can easily picture myself wearing these shades all year round, especially since I tend to prefer shiny puckers over matte or creme shades (sooo boring).

Here’s what you need to know:

This collection of mini lip glosses (four of which are only available in this set) makes lips shiny, moist, and soft. Its range of gloss effects includes multi-holigraphic shimmer, sheer high-shine, smooth shimmer, and creamy comfort.


This set contains 8 x 0.1 oz lip glosses in:

- She Sparkles (gold shimmer)
- Sassy Soiree (red with gold sparkle) – exclusive
- Fresh Peach Shimmery (shimmering golden peach)
- Perfect Nude (sheer neutral beige shine)
- Pop Princess (creamy pink shine) – exclusive
- Pink Diamond (baby pink with sparkle) – exclusive
- Purple Red (raspberry with opalescent shimmer)
- Cinnamon Spice (burgundy with smooth shimmer) – exclusive


What else you need to know:

The hourglass-shaped applicator includes a soft flocked tip that applies just the right amount of gloss. A special ultra-hydrating complex keeps lips moist. The small size of each gloss makes it the perfect as a stocking stuffer or gift.


I am quite frankly in love with the applicator. A cross between a brush and a sponge tip, it truly does dispense the perfect amount of gloss and has a general feeling of bathing your lips in moisture. I’ve been rocking Pink Diamond the entire festive season – in fact, I was stopped while Boxing Day shopping at Superstore and asked to relinquish the brand/colour of the lip gloss I was wearing! It’s the perfect baby pink with sparkle!



The only shade I am less than enthused about is Perfect Nude; a creamy, pale neutral beige – it imparts zero shine and could likely be used as a concealer for those in the NC35 skin tone range. I really don’t see its place in a set full of vibrant, sparkly shades – the hue is very anti-holiday, and very JLo circa 2002.



In fact; after taking the above photo, I tossed it out. #sorrysephora
Nevertheless, at just $11.00 and rated 4.4 out of 5 based on 75 reviews, this is one of my top Boxing Week picks. I am looking forward to enjoying the bling-y shades all year round; in fact, if you see me in March with dewy, shiny lips, be sure to ask which one I’m rocking :)Click here to shop at Sephora.



Sephora by OPI Holiday Mini Blockbuster Set



I did it! I found the PERFECT gift for every hard-to-shop-for gal on your holiday list.
(Totally awesomesauce, I promise.)
It’s the Sephora by OPI Holiday Mini Blockbuster Set!

Now tell me this: which girl is going to refuse a collection of the hottest, trendiest and most sought-after nail colours around? None that I know! Even if she’s not the type to paint her fingernails, every self-respecting woman needs colour on her toes, right? Right. This collection offers a wide spectrum of shades that are longwearing, chip-resistant and as always, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene and Formaldehyde-free.

In other words: pure, unadulterated joy.


This season, my gorgeous friends at Sephora sent a bunch of holiday goodies my way, including the Sephora by OPI Holiday Mini Blockbuster Set. I must admit that I was completely smitten from the moment I looked at the box – not only is it a veritable cornucopia of colour, but it brings out the “collector” in every girl – we like to hoard pretty, shiny things. Seriously, we’ve been doing it since we were six years old. Except instead of stickers and rubber bracelets, it’s now jewelry, lipsticks and nail polish.


 

Keep in mind that the bottle are mini; they’ve got 3.75ml of liquid goodness versus the standard 15ml for Sephora by OPI. But I’m not complaining; when was the last time you finished an entire bottle of nail polish? I say sample size is the way to go when it comes to nail colour!
Of course, all the shades were ridiculously vibrant and rich. I’m mad crushing on How Cute is That? (opaque vintage pink coral), Already Famous (sheer pewter with medium champagne and silver glitter) and Sample Sale (opaque metallic classic red).


All shades are shown with two (2) coats plus clear topcoat.
The set retails for $62 CDN, which is a little bit more than I would spend on a casual acquaintance, but for the special gals in your life – splurge! Show ‘em how much you love them… after all, it’s a $96 value, and will conceivably last them at least 3-4 seasons. Of course, this is also a spectacular treat for yourself… #justsayin
This Christmas, be a good friend: give the gift of colour. Click here to shop at Sephora.



Summer Beauty: Sephora


Since this is a beauty event, and it’s Sephora (hello!), y’all will probably want to know what I received for review – and what’s up for grabs – like, NOW. So I won’t keep you in suspense any longer…
 
http://www.listentolena.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/sephora13.jpg

Clockwise from Left to Right (Sort of): Sephora Hot 10: Nano Eyeliner Set, Anastasia Beverly Hills Illumin Bronzer, Sephora Purple Delight Nail Trio, Sephora by OPI in “I Don’t Bite”, Guerlain Rouge Automatique in #164 Chamade, Jennifer Aniston Eau de Parfum, Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Petal, Sephora Canada Palette, Sephora Electric Safari Pop Up Brush, Sephora Cream Lipstain in #1 Always Red, Sephora Jumbo Liner 24HR Wear in Turquoise, Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in #8 Iridescent Electric Purple, Sephora Color Wand For Lips,  Hello Kitty I Heart Lashes Mascara in Goodnight Dreams and Sephora 4 Shadows and Liner Palette in Not that Shy.
Now I’m the girl who once lined up her pencil crayons by colour, carefully reading the description and committing the names to memory (still a huge fan of Laurentian #4 Hollywood Cerise). So it comes as no surprise that I was immediately drawn to Sephora’s The Hot 10: Nano Eyeliner Set. Squeee! Loved swatching these smooth, vibrant colours:


The darker hues are beautifully intense, but as you can see from the picture, Silver Green and Iced Brown may not be the best choices for olive skintones. You should also know that the pencils are incredibly soft; while this adds to the buttery texture and helps them glide on effortlessly, they’re also quite fragile and will break if you don’t use a light touch, so be forewarned. However, at only $31 for the set (a $60 value) I think these are a wonderful way to introduce colour and vibrancy if you’re a 24/7 black eyeliner kind of gal.


Next, you know I have to mention the Sephora Canada Palette. Celebrating Canadian beauties everywhere, the palette offers a beautiful assortment of colours in a collectible mini palette that’s easy to take on-the-go with nine eye shadows, four lip gloss shades and a blush.
I love that Sephora didn’t go for stereotypical reds – it would be the easy way out and far from what northern gals are all about – we love the perfect neutral that looks beautiful in winter and equally smashing on a bright summer day. The palette is tiny – about 2.5″ by 2.5″ – so it’s sequined clutch-friendly and certainly convenient for mid-date touch ups.
I’m also digging this Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain in Petal. Retailing for $55, it’s a little pricier than I’d usually spend on a cheek product, but I can’t deny that the application is smooth, the finish is flawless and the colour is gorgeous. Aura’s unique click mechanism dispenses the perfect amount of product and since the stain is water based, it blends oh-so-easily.


The colour is soft – a sweet, innocent petal pink. Customer reviews on Sephora.com have been comparing Petal to NARS Orgasm; considering that Orgasm has been called the “perfect blush”, Aura Cheek Stain is in very good company.
Lena Loves:

Sephora Color Wand For Lips: Perfect for a tween or teen! “Just choose a color and twist – a doe foot applicator is revealed and ready to give lips a beautifully glossy hint of color. Perfect for purses, one little stick offers a wide range of options. Mix and match glosses to create unique shades.”
Purple Delight Nail Trio: Priced just right ($13) as a little thank you or “just because” gift, these mini polishes are big on colour. Shades include Girls Want Tenderness (light purple with subtle metallic shimmers), Full Moon Party (deep purple with metallic sparkles) and Amethyst Stiletto (tiny silver glitter sparkles in a purple base).
Jennifer Aniston Eau de Parfum: Okay, so technically I don’t love this fragrance. Then again, I don’t necessarily love predictably blah rom-com starlets. It just didn’t smell “right” on me – kind of heady instead of fragrant. But with light, blooming floral notes set against a sensual base of musk and woods, perhaps it’s for right for you!

All of the products featured and pictured above can be purchased online at Sephora.com or at your local Sephora (with the exception of the Sephora Canada Palette which can be found in Canadian stores only).

And inside, you’ll find a euphoric climax of colour – by way of 98 original, iridescent effect eyeshadows, 70 shiny lip glosses, 6 cream eyeliners, 2 lip liners, 3 eyeliners, one mascara and 4 applicators. Ladies, I present to you the Endless Color Blockbuster.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_v72hvb-bXzo/TPvbY62wOtI/AAAAAAAAFik/X0tDjE24VV8/s1600/IMG_3837.JPG

A $565 CDN value for just $62 CDN, this limited-edition palette lets you create virtually any look. It’s perfect for those who don’t like the clutter of pots and tubes of makeup but still enjoy variety and punches of colour. Or, perhaps it’s the kit you keep at your boyfriend’s/ parent’s/ office/ gym locker, so that you’ve got makeup at your fingertips in a sleek, portable format (the case is only 5.75 x 5.75″ closed).
A quick dry swatch of some eyeshadows yielded bright, vibrant coverage with colours that applied smoothly. The lip gloss pots were like dipping into candy – such an array of shades and finishes.  And the addition of colour eye pencils, cream shadows and bronzer is a nice touch; it completes the palette and truly makes it an all-in-one.
Got a few mascara junkies on your list? Well then RUN – don’t walk – to grab Sephora’s LashStash Mascara Deluxe Sampler. For just $50 CDN, you can grab 10 of Sephora’s most sought-after mascaras from the hottest-selling brands. 


The set contains:

Too Faced LashLight Mascara in Black (full size)
Josie Maran GOGO Natural Volume Mascara in Pitch Black
Tarte MultiplEYE Clinically-Proven Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black
Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara in Black
Blinc Kiss Me Mascara in Black
Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Mascara in Black
Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black
Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara in Black
Sephora Collection Advanced Lash Booster in Black
Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara in Onyx
Tarte Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler


It’s a little more than I’d usually spend for a stocking stuffer, but with enough mascara to conceivably last the entire year, it’s too good to pass up! Buy! Buy! Buy!
Mascara not your thing? That’s okay – you can give your pucker some pizazz with Sephora’s Give Me Some Lip. Just $40 CDN for a lip-smacking holiday set packed with 10 of Sephora’s go-to glosses.


The set contains:

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Tease
Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Sex Pot
Sephora Collection Super Shimmer in Pink Ballerina

Tarte Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss in 40 Winks
Cover FX Mint Glaze Lip Gloss
Lorac Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in Cliché
Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Radiant
Tarte Rise & Shine Lip Gloss and Stain in Cherry

Buxom Lips in Roxanne

Love, Love, LOVE this! I giggled with delight when I saw the Lorac Lip Gloss in Cliché – it’s quite possibly the hottest pink ever, and one that has long been on my “must try” list. It pairs perfectly with winter white for a snow princess effect, and brings colour to otherwise sallow winter complexions. I fully intend on rocking this look with a white wool coat and beret. Magnifique!

BUY IT!

All of these limited edition gift sets are available online or in-store – but hurry, they won’t be around for much longer. Make it a beautiful Christmas for a special gal!

      I Sort you into Houses,

      But this year I’ll go further,
      Listen closely to my song:
      Though condemned I am to split you,
      Still I worry that it’s wrong.
      Though I must fulfill my duty,
      And must quarter every year,
      Still I wonder whether Sorting,
      May not bring the end I fear.
      Oh, know the perils, read the signs,
      The warning history shows,
      For our Hogwarts is in danger from external deadly foes…
      And we must unite inside her,
      Or we’ll crumble from within…
      I have told you, I have warned you.
      Let the Sorting now begin.”

Whether she’s hosting an event or hitting the red carpet, our girl always looks awesome. Need some V-Day date night inspiration? Look no further than Shay’s cute ‘n’ cool Cali girl style.
 
Date night outfit #1: Pink ‘n’ black 


Shay has a completely crush-worthy sense of style: Girly and cute but with a relaxed vibe. For a so-sophisticated Valentine’s Day date, take a page from Shay’s book and rock a pretty pink blazer with black leggings. As for accessories? A chic-as-can-be flowery necklace, printed tote bag and a light spritz of a femme fragrance is all ya need.

Identity Crisis Footwear – The Vintage Jean Sandal Boots Of DaniKfashion!

DaniKshoes Identity Crisis Footwear – The Vintage Jean Sandal Boots Of DaniKfashion!

These incredibly odd denim sandal/boots were created by Israel based designer Danielle of DaniKfashion. She makes each pair by hand using a different pair of vintage jeans so that they are each completely unique.
Danielle claims that they are high quality sandals/boots that are comfortable and fun and that they will “never go unnoticed”. Well, she might be right about the not going unnoticed side of things, but I’m really not sure if that’ll be for the right reasons! They are certainly different, I’ll give her that much, doubt I’d ever be inclined to wear them though!

If you love something, let it go,
If it comes back it's yours to keep,
If it doesn't, it never was.
