Summer Style Inspiration

Saturday, 23 June 2018
It is that glorious time of year again when the hot sun shines from dawn to dusk. Despite that fact I'm not spending my summer in an 17th Century Italian villa a la Elio in Call Me By Your Name, this moodboard is firmly Mediterranean inspired. I'm loving crisp white shirts, linen dresses, vintage cotton blouses, silk midi shirts and lots of gold jewellery. Also a Toteme swimsuit with a Toteme towel and Toteme headscarf would do very nicely..

Two Beauty Favourites

Thursday, 21 June 2018
I am massively into my beauty and can't help to buy and try new products all the time. This is two picks from my 2018 skincare and makeup buys which I've really loved. 

Omorovicza is one of my top skincare brands and I've tried quite a lot of the line (shoutout to the always excellent Space NK boxing day sale and my old Liberty discount). I was renewing a PORTER magazine subscription and amazingly, the Miracle Oil was the gift with purchase. It is truly dreamy and my skin feel baby soft, hydrated and glowy the morning after use. I wouldn't repurchase because it's too expensive but for the meantime I'm so happy to pretend I'm a Hungarian spa queen every night. Makeup pick the only thing thats been on my eyes of late is the Nars Wanted Palette, which I think was actually limited edition. I love its warm, jewel tones and shameless glitters. It's quite bold compared to my other palettes so I like the change. I can really go from ~day 2 night~ as cliche as that is. 

In Bloom

Thursday, 10 May 2018

While I was away in America recently, a heatwave in the UK made everything bloom. By the time I was back, the trees and plants were unreconizable from their winter dregs and suddenly in colours of soft pink and lush green. This is also known as Spring (duh). Hallelujah - at last some warmer weather. My resident cactus is doing well and theres some fresh flowers on my desk. All is well.

I saw this second picture on tumblr and thought how if there was a Met gala theme that simply required a costumed version of yourself- this would suit me quite well. Surrounded by flowers and foliage. The picture is by Irving Penn and quite apt because it was for US Vogue in April 1995, aka the month and year I was born. There is something about the beauty of flowers that makes me so happy.

Alighieri The Fractured Cloud Necklace
Alighieri The Fractured Cloud Necklace

After writing about Alighieri in my September Wishlist post I've been umming and ahhing over which piece to invest in. On Saturday, there was an open studio in North London so it was the perfect time to go try on a few and meet Rosh too! After some coffee and deliberation, I went home with the Fractured Cloud necklace from the Lost Dreamer collection. It's a beautiful piece with a literary story so a great purchase to kind of mark the graduation from my English Literature degree (this is me justifying the purchase to myself). Definitely an indulgdence but I'm v happy with my new necklace- and it probably won't be the last from Alighieri...
