The perfect shade of grey…

… you’ll find in a nail polish bottle by Chanel this fall called Frenzy 559, which I had on my nails while shooting in Paris. It’s the perfect creamy grey polish with a hint of lavender, and if you like me prefer more discreet and nude’ish looking nails, you’re gonna love this one. In stores from 24th of August, join the queue!

Magique!

Latest addition in my bathroom closet is this instant nail polish remover (£8) I got at Sephora while in Paris last week, just dip your fingers into the box and turn it around, no grease and nail polish gone, magique! Best polish I’ve ever tried, dermatologically tested, smells good and definitely living up to it’s name.

Protectors

And while we are at it, hanging by the pool I mean, these are my new favorites to avoid getting burned. Except from succeeding to protect my fair winter skin from the tropical sun, these products are super moisturizing, long lasting and smells wonderful, so well worth those extra pennies, thumbs up!

Stranded

I should have been on a plane to Bangkok right now, instead I’m stuck at a hotel and a rescheduled flight for tomorrow, with no access to my suitcase, help!!!
Anyway, last couple of days have been super hectic and only a few hours before I headed for Heathrow today I styled a last minute hair shoot where I improvised by wrapping the models in gorgeous Scandinavian jewellery and garbage bags, high shiny surface, so very fall 2012.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

1, 2 , 3

It’s not often I tip about beauty products as I don’t experiment much, but these goodies are new favorites of mine and it doesn’t hurt that they all come in a beautiful package.

L’eau De Chloe is a super fresh floral citrus fragrance, and doesn’t feel heavy at all on the skin, just the way I like it! YSL Volupte lipstick in Sheer Candy is perfect if you prefer a moisturizing lipstick (don’t we all?), good points for the fruity taste. Dior mascara’s have been favorites for years though I’ve felt the result could easily be a little too dramatic, the latest one however, Diorshow NEW LOOK is a great tip if you prefer more natural looking lashes.

Le Cut

Just when you thought Arizona Muse couldn’t look any better she showed up in London in another gorgeous cut and color, so boyish, adorable and hot at the same time, love it!

A saviour

Are you  like me struggling with unruly and dry hair at this time of year, then I can highly recommend this split ends serum, Kerastase Fibre Architecte, to be used in dry hair, only a few drops are needed so it lasts like forever.

New favorites

Right now these are favorites in my bathroom closet, they are both floral but irresistible fresh fragrances. Gucci’s Eau de Parfum II is a classic and more feminine while Martin Maison Margiela’s Untitled is a unisex with hints of bitter citrus, wood and musk.

New in

It’s not often I buy make-up, like once a year, simply due to the fact I don’t use much. I’m a massive fan of Bare Minerals skin products but other stuff I get from Burberry and they last like forever, loving these products!
Sheer eye shadow No.21, lip definer No.02, lip glow No.05 (not sticky at all!)

Favorites

At this time of year I’m always in need of a good hand creme and these 2 are new favorites of mine but I can’t pick a winner as I love them both. CLARINS Creme Jeunesse des Main 100ml (£18) and OPI Avoplex 120ml (£17).

Grace

I can’t remember ever getting so many compliments for my perfume as this one, Philosophy’s Grace Pure eau de parfum, and I like it even better than Amazing Grace which I’ve worn for years. When I was in NY I got refills from the whole grace pure range, totally addictive and as it says on the box: “nothing smells better than soap and water clean”, can’t argue that.

Nail news

Though I’ve felt like wearing more natural shades on my nails lately, constantly sporting Chanel’s 493 Jade Rose, I might feel tempted to try one of these shades from Chanel’s limited edition, Les Jeans de Chanel, that will hit stores 8th of September.

Another nail news is Alexander Wang‘s first beauty effort that includes his very own nail color collection from Sally Hansen and will debut at his Spring show in NY in a few weeks…..

Hair stuff

As I often get asked what hair products I use and how I style my hair I find it easier to do it all in one post, though I’ve tipped about the Kitoko oil before.

I’ve used this series from Kerastase for years and seems to be, from what I’ve tried, the only one that can control my unruly, fine, curly hair without loosing all volume at the same time, I use the mask instead of conditioner in order to moisture as much as possible.
I always use the creme to protect against heat followed by either the volume spray from Loreal or the mousse from Kerastase when I blow dry my hair with a mid size roller brush, and I never use hairspray, just don’t like the feeling of it.

Also one thing I could never live without is my brush from Mason Pearson, always carry it along in my handbag, a winner!
