Books …

… once I heard that reading books is like having additional lives … so if you read really a lot it’s like you are living many, many lives … and by this fact you become more open, tolerant and what’s most crucial … you decrease a bit this annoying feeling of not being able to make all those experiences yourself …
to my beautiful friends – books !

 

fashionsoulmate rebirth …

so, looks like I slept off the summer … this is not so bad actually … anyway I am coming back … but before I will be fully, mentally awake I prefer to stick to already well-thought-out topics … and here it comes, one of my greatest beauty discoveries CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE AQUA ULTRA-LIGHT SKIN PERFECTING MAKEUP SPF 15
It’s light, it actually does adjust to the colour of your skin and gives absolutely natural look … and I love the smell! … after I spend a lot of time in front of the mirror thinking that my face looks .. hmm strange (this could be not make-up related only …) I am really happy to find the perfect thing. I seriously started considering a hat as a solution here … but I prefer to follow the cool hat-look in Saint Laurent style then to use it as camouflage!

this is more what I was thinking about …

my beauty discoveries … moisturisers: Lancome – Nutrix and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream

I was really wondering if I should use the word discoveries in this case, because I think almost every fashion magazine wrote about Elisabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream quite recently … but on the other hand there is nothing new under the sun … and as for me it’s my personal discovery … definitely it was not the love from first … sniff … this cream has an awful smell although I bought the fragrance free version (!) … and at the beginning I had a problem with finding the best way of using it … it was a bit like giving chess to a dog … so I tried to put it here and there … a bit … a lot … and I can confirm its healing properties but the real discovery is to use it as an moisturiser … for the whole face, for the whole night … (the best if your partner can spend this night in a guest room) … it was a great relief for my sandpaper-like skin …
encouraged by the success of my finding I decided to have a closer look to other moisturisers … so I bought Nutrix from Lancome and I have to admit it’s great too and has a decent price … the same procedure … whole face, whole night but … your partner can stay with you (!)

 

Couple of points … not that they have anything in common … in other words bla, bla, bla

it’s been quite an intensive time for me recently … but finally I managed to gather some interesting and less interesting points from last weeks, they have not so much in common but if this is not the first post of mine you are reading then you shouldn’t be surprised …

number one … I did use Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse for my hair for the first time (WHAT A NEWS !); I’ve been always a bit sceptic about putting oil on my hair … but it’s amazing, seriously I do not usually get so excited about my hair but … you just need to put this oil on your hair (you can really put a lot) and then after 15-20 just rinse it away using your usual shampoo …

number two … I have never liked the marine style (I know, I know … but we just do not go very well together ..) but I really like the marine t-shirts you just need to take away the marine drama by wearing it together with … for instance leather pants … or you just wear it without anything else … if you prefer you can add some jewellery to your outfit to draw the attention away from the fact you’re half naked

number three … this beautiful heart on the picture above is a gift from my grandmother … generally I do not wear jewellery but this, besides THE ring, is an exception … of course for sentimental reasons …one add on … I am not a big fan of short chains so I combined two short ones into one: one part is also from my grandmother and the other one I got for my 18th birthday from my mother … so now it’s perfect …

number four … I do not think I am ready to wear my open shoes already … although it matches very well my outfit …

number five … I was testing some new cosmetics … I will share the outcome soon
 

All about FUR COATS !

… when I think about absolute feminine look I imagine a long, black dress, pearls, cigarettes … and a fur coat ! … and when I keep on thinking (it happens) I think about “old Hollywood” and then I can only see my beloved Bette Davis. It’s her who said – in one of her interviews – “the only royalty America has ever had were the actors of Hollywood” and for me she was the queen! On the top of my adoration for her artistry I love to watch her outfits … and there are a lot of fur coats there …
… as it can be observed, fur coats are sooo coming back now (again my compliments to Nina) although it’s a different style, different attitude (fur coat is also no longer reflection of your social status … oh yes, it used to be one) and everyone can choose something which is in accordance with his philosophy of life. I like this idea and I am definitely going to purchase one for myself … but as much as I love the way how fur coats are worn now … with jeans, leather pants (my obsession) … generally more relaxed … I will always have in my memory the one and only Bette wearing her fur coat and smoking a cigarette …

Can you see yourself clearly …?

… how do you know that what you imagine about yourself is the same that people see?
I can assure you it is not so clear … any ideas how to check whether your idea of yourself is coherent with what you show outside? … it’s interesting … I become convinced there is no exhaustive answer to this question … BUT (it’s like with German grammar there is ALWAYS one BUT) what you can try is … for your look … take a picture of yourself, make short movie and watch it carefully (in this case it has nothing to do with narcissism) … for your personality … skim over the gifts you received from people who you think know you best … bla, bla, bla just a small bite of philosophy for the begging of the week, stay cool and do not take life too serious …

and i will love you till the end of time …

I think I already mentioned it, … most probably even more then once … I looove sweaters, the bigger the better … and I know this one was already presented in my posts and please be sure it will keep coming back, … it’s one of those pieces of clothes that I regret not buying  at least two of them, … just in case one would loose its sleeve or … would be kidnapped(!)

I would like to dedicate this post to all your clothes which have been worn for more then one season !
