One week ago I had yet again the amazing opportunity to assist at the Mary Katrantzou show during London Fashion Week. When my director announced one week of holidays a few weeks ago, I immediately booked a couple of days in London, and discovered afterwards I booked during London Fashion Week, which is not bad news at all! Hence my presence at Mary Katrantzou.

Scuba Stories

I seem to have gotten an obsession with scuba (the fabric, not scuba diving). This is not the sturdy and unflattering fabric that might pop up in your hand, flashing back to sports taking place underwater or on a board, or more recently, that famous Triangl Bikini that seem impossible to fit in with those tiny, seeming non-stretching bottoms.

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron

As you might have noticed already, I never wear my hair loose, always wearing a high ponytail or a bun. For at least 10 years I always found my hair too frizzy, too annoying, too much of a mess to wear loose, even though it's so incredibly long and quite healthy-looking as I take good care of my fair. So when Irresistible Me contacted me, asking if I would be interested in testing their flat iron, I was hesistant, as I wasn't sure I would put it to good use, that I would just leave it in the back of my closet and never use. I decided to go through with it, and I'm still so very happy with my decision!

Stripes & Sunnies

Even during winter the sun can shine, YES even in gloomy Paris, and even during winter you sometimes need sunglasses to protect your eyes from the evil that are UV rays. Firmoo sent me over these marvelous, gigantic but so cool sunnies. First of all, let us talk about delivery: from China to France within a week is pretty incredible, and I was so stunned to recieve the glasses so quickly. 

Metallic Hair Tattoos

I wrote about temporary gold & silver tattoos this summer, and now this trend is back, but with a twist. Now temporary tattoos are worn in the hair, to give this special extra touch to your look, and perfect for a party or just to spice up that little black dress. I decided to go for the last option - go for a simple black look with a leather jacket, a red lip and some golden tattoos in my hair.
