January Favorites

What would a personal blog be, without us sharing personal thoughts, likes and dislikes, dreams and plans ? After two months of almost constant fashion content posting, I’ll try to make a first attempt towards letting you, find a little bit more about me. I do wish in time, for this blog to become friendlier, warmer and more like me, but one thing is for sure, high fashion/red carpet/celebrity fashion will probably never go away, not as long as I will be allowed to write about it.

See, for me, this is a way of expressing myself, as fashion is pure art, when I usually post about all the beautiful ladies, wearing all the beautiful gowns, I see past the media madness. I try to focus mainly on the following ideas: fashion does come to life, bold fashion statements are made every single day, we can find inspiration in almost everything/everyone surrounding us. Because, yes, fashion makes me happy, watching other people enjoy fashion, gives me life appetite, makes me dare for more, dream for more, makes me wanna try new things.

All in all, I do wish to get to write about other stuff too, other stuff like small everyday stories, books and movies I enjoy, food and trips and starting Spring, I’ll even do my best to try and post outfit photos, in a new special category. But until those days will come, I’m still enjoying the winter days and I could start sharing with you, my monthly Favorites, a list that includes everything I loved during a certain month (obviously).

January-Favorites

01. Dream House is up until now, my favorite January movie. I loved the storyline (I won’t reveal it here, just in case you haven’t seen it yet), I love the Daniel Craig+Rachel Weisz combo (on/off the screen), I’m still a sucker for romance and happy family stories (up until the point something goes bad), I don’t mind a little bit of drama or ending up in tears at the end of the movie. Dream House was all of that – “There’s happiness in this house, there’s you …” <3 . Mystery/thriller/drama all together.

02. Chocolate … I’ve been a desert type of girl even since I can remember, I don’t care as much about food (I do enjoy lovely meals everyday) but if we’re talking cookies, chocolate, cupcakes or any other type of sweets, I’m all in. I often wonder if I could ever give up on the whole deal, as it would be a lot healthier but…I haven’t got a positive answer yet. This month, I went back to chocolate, after a Christmas filled with home-baked goodies.

03. Braids – Long story short, braids really caught my attention this month, as they seems like such a romantic and beautiful approach. I would love to test all sorts of styles, but unfortunately patience and niggling are not my strongest assets. But I’ll start practicing more …

04. Taylor Swift is my newest girl crush here on the blog, as you might have noticed already. I’m drawn by her girly/youthful/chic off duty style approach, so she will definitely serve as inspiration from now on.

05. Snow usually starts bothering me right about the time December is gone, because usually, starting January I already try to move on and dream about spring and summer. But not this year, this year I enjoyed the heavy snowing part of the month, I got all excited and I’m still waiting to build a snowman.

06. How I Met Your Mother is our new favorite show to watch (recommended by some of our closest friends), and we might be late on the trend, but we are good at catching up (we got up to the third season already). It goes without saying it’s my favorite cozy activity of the month. Some times these simple small things, are the best things.

07. Red Skinny (misspelled in the image above, too bad I’m too tired to change it now) Jeans are my latest must-have item obsession. I’m currently searching for a nice fitted pair, somewhere they must be already waiting for me.

08. Adorable Cats – This month I really, really wished for one, but the desire comes and goes, as I realize I’ll be probably raising one, only by the time we’ll get our own place.

09. Homemade lemonade – By summer time I’ll probably be wishing not to have exaggerated with this drink during the winter days, but it’s quite nice actually. Lemonade and tea, my choice for January.

This post just got way too long as I tried my best to keep it short, but thank you, if you had the patience to read and got to this ending point. I mumbled for an entire week, a week in just pictures would have been better, right? 😀

 

Happy New Year !!!

2011 is already gone (can you believe how fast that happened ?) so today I wanna wish you all a very Happy New Year, may all your dreams for 2012 come true, no matter how big or small, and even if January feels like a new beginning always remember … the best is yet to come !

Happy New Year

I can’t wait to get “back in business” starting tomorrow ! XO

I Might Be Cookie Wasted But…You Da One

I hope you wonderful people had am amazing Christmas this year ! I know I did, and even though I’m cookie wasted right now and the thought of something sugary makes me sick, I had the best time ! I’m sure I’ll get back to my passion for sweets in matter of hours. I enjoyed so much spending time with family ( I just missed mine a lot  more than usual these past days) and eating way to much food for just 48 hours, but hey, who am I to refuse something delicious looking, served on a plate, right in front of me ? That did happened to all of us, right ?

I have missed the blog, the fashion news, the celebrities, that’s why today I came back with a song ! You might have heard it by now and I’m sure not going to start bragging about how much I admire Rihanna, did I say admire ? , well, how much I love Rihanna, but one thing’s for sure: this is a happy song, perfect for this sunny winter day!

And in case you were wondering what does this video have to do with fashion, well it has everything to do with it, because Rihanna is a trendsetter, way ahead of her time, daring, unique and always inspiring. She’s committed to her style and that’s for sure the coolest thing !

My favorite look of the video, ought to be this somewhat boyish outfit, with the printed tights and short jeans, oh and the cute little white hat of course. Enjoy the video :

Iconic Style… Audrey Hepburn <3

The first post on my new blog. Excitement and also a lot of thoughts that occupied my mind.

There was a lot to choose from, in matter of subject of course, but I decided to transform this first step into an homage, brought to someone I truly admire, to someone special that left her print on the Fashion world forever. A true Style Icon.

Needless to say that the adorable and most beautiful British woman of all time that I am talking about is the legendary Audrey Hepburn.

In terms of fashion, you cannot think of Audrey Hepburn and not instantly think of the classic “Little Black Dress” that was part of her memorable chic style. Having to thank her for that great legacy, as the piece stands as a “must have” in anyone’s essential wardrobe by now, we might also want to thank her for one particular cozy & comfortable pair of shoes. Swimming against the stream, in an era where heels & pumps were not so comfortable, but yet they were every woman’s graceful choice, Audrey started to pair her outfits, with the never really out of style “Ballet Flats”. Let’s not forget about the “Cat-Eyes Sunglasses”, an item that unmistakable, still wears the subtle signature of the One & Only Audrey and that we all still love so much.

The oversized hats, the black cigarette pants, the pearls, the great name of Givenchy, all that and so much more keeps reminding us that once upon a time there was a lady who never thought of herself as an icon, and yet today she is “THE ICON” for so many of us.
