Chaos to Harmony

It’s the time when you transform the unexpected chaos into something beautiful!

In this post I’m introducing a new theme on the blog that came up unexpectedly. As I like being behind the cam more than in front of it, every now & then I will be hosting guests for photo-shoot sessions, they will answer style questions boosting your inspiration.

My first guest is P, one of my closest friends. This girl has the most chaotic closet with tones of colors & textures that end up in perfect harmony, making great looks!

Your favorite wardrobe item right now: Definitely the jacket from Topshop I’m wearing in this photo shoot & my dark lipstick. Perfect for this season!

What makes or breaks a look: Every item we wear makes a difference starting from the bra! But I think that the hair plays an important role in making or breaking the look, after all “A happy hair day is a happy day!”

Summer or winter fashion? Definitely summer fashion & hot stuff! Winter fashion is just cool… not too cool though!

NYX TOTAL CONTROL DROP FOUNDATION

I usually don’t buy drugstore foundation because I have a very sensitive skin, but I gave this NYX foundation a try. And my shot was on point as this foundation turned out to be super lightweight & has a buildable coverage thanks to the drop formula so it works well for everyday make up if you want light coverage. The only thing I found trouble with is the direct application on the face as things might get messy! NYX recommends using the special total control brush for application: http://bit.ly/2gm8Oiy

NYX DREAMCATCHER PALETTE in Golden Horizons

Welcome autumn with this palette 10 different colors, mixing between mattes and shimmers. The mirror & a double-end sponge applicator are well hidden underneath, you just have to slide the top part. Be careful not to miss it!

As for the shadows quality I have mixed feelings, some colors aren’t as strong as they appear to be, like the purple shade. But others have really nice pigmentation like the goldy orange one (I loveeed this shade).

Final verdict: I’m not sure if I would buy it again, I think you can find better drugstore palette with the same price range, but the colors shade range/combination is a winner!

All bets on red

Put a bet on red, put a bet on love, put a bet on new chances & put a bet on yourself!

Put a bet on red because it will give glam and power to any look.

Put a bet on red because it will give you strength when you feel like everything is black & white.

Put a bet on yourself because you know more than anyone else what you’re worth.

Go bold or go home.

Forget about keeping things low profile while trying to kill the cold, this season fur variation will make you feel fabulous facing the storms.

So unleash your wildness from the forgotten part of your closet and wear your fur anytime & anywhere.

Dare to wear it big & colorful as seen on the catwalks. Dare to wear it in the day time with your favorite jeans to keep it hip!

Brown or Berry?

One simple question to answer this season: Brown or Berry?

Although i’m not a big fan of brown when it comes to clothing, this fall i’m crushing over this colour in all lipstick shades (Matte terracotta, creamy coffee, deep brown, burnt brown…) giving us a throwback to the 90s. It’s suitable for every skin color & flattering for all lips shapes!

As for the berry shade, we’ve already seen it on different catwalks but this season it would be exciting to try the darker shades of it like plum and purple. Those shades will guarantee a dark romantic touch to every winter look.

Now tell me which of the innovative shades will upgrade your winter makeup, brown or berry?

Potter’s clay: My pick for autumn

Temperature might be dropping down but the Potter’s Clay pantone is here to warm things up!

The color of falling leaves will add refinement to your outfit with its earthy tone and hint of orange & ochre.

Whether layered with other neutrals, color blocked or worn from head to toe, this pantone color is one of my top picks for this season on all fabrics & it’s the perfect substitute for the classic brown.

P.S: I rarely wear brown; I basically hate it…unless it’s about makeup, than you have to wait for upcoming posts 😉

Bickfaya Flower Market

Last weekend I passed by Bickfaya to check one of their events that locals became used to “Marché aux fleurs” (Flower Market). For people who don’t know, Bickfaya a town in Metn area, is well known for – beside politics – it’s beautiful nature & yummy peaches!

The flower market is not just a place for people to meet & catch up but also for locals to display their products from flowers, home appliances & accessories, which is needed in a town that’s barely active during the weekdays.

So take a tour on what you’ve missed & have a nice day!

Blended shades for 2016

For the first time the Pantone institution has chosen not one but 2 colors for 2016. So say Goodbye to Marsala and welcome Rose Quartz & Serenity this year! The combination of the two shades creates an unusual harmony i can even say romantic! So here’s a some items i gathered to start the new year with inspiring colors.4231

Shiny fall trends

While everyone’s eyes is on Paris fashion week for SS16 let’s keep focused on this season, the season of the bling! Because this fall is all about big jewelry that turns eyes! It is not just about statement necklaces, but about big earrings, chunky bracelets,  beautiful hair clips & even a full pierced face like seen at Givenchy.

I have to admit that I’m very excited about the brooch comeback. This season dare to style your brooches as they can be used as an embellishment to your jackets, knits, scarfs & even hats adding a sophisticated flare to your warm fall looks. Without forgetting that this trend can be pocket friendly, as brooches can be found in so many shops & the best ones might even be found in your grandma’s drawer!

Back with a Flashback!

This summer I kind of let go on blogging. I had many things to do & many emotions to deal with so I had all my energy focused on how to finish my daily tasks, enjoy my time & stay healthy.

But summer is about to end, and I hope that September will hold positive changes to the blog. So in this post I will share some of my summer moments.

Summer is made for road trips and the best thing a person can do is to drive away from the city & enjoy the beauty of our beautiful country that never fades despite all the bad things happening.
