Fall is finally upon us, and while most of us are preparing our wardrobes some of us are also thinking of fun ways to change up our Make Up to welcome this beautiful season! Once again I have teamed up with a professional make up artist Seema Khanna, so she can teach us the best tricks to get a natural smokey eye, tricks for the perfect eye liner, and an instant face lift with make up secrets;) But before we get into all the make up tricks she mentions the most important factor, getting your skin ready with the right toner and face cream! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you are more than well aware of my profound love and loyalty for skincare brands that work for my sensitive skin, and specifically Murad Skincares! In this video used the Murad Daily cleansing foam, their Balancing Moisturizer SPF15, and their Instant Radiance Eye Cream, which are my favorite products to keep my skin clean, glowing and moisturized this Fall!
How many of you have seen pale pink coats, sweaters, and blazers all over fashion magazines, catwalks, Pinterest, etc? I know I have, plenty of times for the past few months, and though I am not the usual one to fall into whatever trend is the hottest, I do have to admit that I love the warmth this quite and romantic color ads to our Fall days:) So the other day before heading to a meeting, I dug into my closet, and found my long forgotten (new, never worn) Bimba & Lola pale pink blazer that I got last in one of my Barcelona trips! Paired it with my white chucks, Maje blue denim trousers, a striped blouse, my beloved Amazona Loewe bag, and my new Stella McCartney sunnies!
Cuantas de vosotras estaís al tanto de que este otoño el rosa es el nuevo negro? Por lo menos en cuanto a abrigos, chaquetas y jerseys, me imagino que habéis visto más de una imagen con abrigos rosas, para este Otoño/Invierno! Normalmente no soy la primera en caer víctima de las nuevas tendencias, tengo que admitir que esta me encanta! Este color cálido y romántico añade un toque de color sútil para estos días frios que nos tocan… Espero que os guste este look!
This Sunday I stared blankly at my closet not knowing what to wear, another one of those “I don’t have anything to wear” which I am sure you all are more than familiar with, and couldn’t be far from the truth, as my closet has more than enough clothes! While staring at my abundance of clothing, I got this Sunday melancholy feeling, remember when you are in school, and Sundays are the most dreaded days? The weekend is over, and another school week is ahead… The only thing that would cheer me up was without a doubt MUSIC, and I remembered that for those dreaded Sundays, I would play as loud as possible Faith No more’s “Easy Like A Sunday Morning”! So that’s exactly what I did, I turned up the volume, and it just clicked, what’s easy? Black and White of course! I paired my new leather shorts, with a buttoned up white shirt, my Stella McCartney ankle boots, and my Zara bag, and stepped out the door to meet my hubby for some quality time!
Este pasado domingo me plante en frente de mi armario buscando y rebuscando lo que me iba a poner! Y tuve uno de mis momentos de “No tengo nada para ponerme” que me imagino muchas de vosotras tenéis habitualmente (para no ser la única)! Y me entro esa melancolia de la infancia, cuando los domingos eran el último día del fin de semana, y al día siguiente era la vuelta al cole, como odiaba los domingos! Lo único que me tranquilizaba era mi Musica, así que ponía a tope la canción de Faith No More, “Easy like a Sunday morning” y empezaba a soñar de cuando sea mayor… Y eso es lo que hice ayer, escuchando la canción de repente se me aclararon las ideas y que es mas “Easy” que un look blanco y negro? Mis nuevos shorts de cuero, con mi blusa blanca, mis botines de Stella McCartney, y mi nuevo bolso de Zara, y lista para pasar la tarde con mi marido:)!
Missy Elliot sang it loud and clear “I can’t stand the rain, against my window…” Remember? (Or maybe Im too old) Im sure Selena Gomez or another singer nowadays has some sort of rain lyrics, but pardon me Im from the era when Missy and Timbaland made me dance on any rainy day (and still do)! So how do I brighten up these dull, grey, rainy days? Easy, I choose to NOT wear rain boots, or umbrellas! Why? Because I refuse to feel or look as crappy as the weather, but that’s just my personal view, I dont like rain boots because I feel anything but feminine with them, and umbrellas yes I think they can make an outfit cute, but holding them bothers me, and I always forget them wherever I go (which really annoys my hubby)! How can I not mention that my hair looks freezy cool under the rain:) So I wear my chunky platform Stella McCartney booties, boyfriend denim, a basic white blouse, a black blazer and no umbrella, and I brave the rain:)
Si sois de la epoca de Missy Elliot, os acordaréis muy bien de cuando nos cantaba “I can’t stand the rain, against my window…” Y así empieza cada día lluvioso para mi, con esta canción en mi mente, y con ganas de cambiar mi actidud, porque a quién le gustan los días grises y lluviosos? Para no caer victima del tiempo, lo que hago es poner el paraguas a un lado, y mis botas de lluvia pa fuera;) Me pongo mis botínes plataforma de Stella McCartney, y mis tejanos mas cómodos, dándole un toque chic con una blusa blanca y blazer negro! Y a pisar fuerte contra la lluvia;)! Que os parece?
(my new HandcraftedCph delicate/thin rings that a friend of mine sent me from Copenhagen, they are my favorite rings right now!)
Those of you who follow me on Instagram, might’ve noticed that I was in Saint Louis this past weekend for their Fashion Week. Alive Magazine (who by the way did an amazing job) invited me to attend Fashion Week, alongside other talented bloggers. What to expect when flying out to Saint Louis for Fashion Week right? I did do my research and check out the designers that would be showing, as well as bloggers who would be attending, and seeing the talent that was going to be there I decided to hop on the opportunity! It is always exciting to visit a new location, meet new people, and immerse yourself in it’s culture (can you tell I love traveling?) To my delightful surprise, Saks decided to have me co-host their Tess Giberson Fall Presentation event, and have a short Q&A with the talented and sweet Tess Giberson.
There was a moment right before the show, that Tess was giving me tips on how to take control over my stage freight, how cool is that? Tess Giberson giving me her inside professional tips? Somebody pinch me please! It goes without saying that her collection was breath taking, her minimalist aesthetic, structured knits, laid back style, and white on white looks made me feel right at home. It is not every day you get to meet successful artists such as her, and I couldn’t consider myself luckier. Take a look at her pieces, now try and tell me that Im not right;)! Is she or isn’t she amazing?
Quienes me seguiis en Instagram sabréis que este fin de semana estuve de viaje en Saint Louis para la semana de moda, organizada por Alive Magazine! Y no solo pude disfrutar de desfiles de moda de varios diseñadores emergentes (ya os ire contando) si no que también tuve la gran oportunidad de presentar en Saks Fifth Avenue la colección de una de mis diseñadoras preferidas, Tess Giberson .
