On my mind…

Collage created using TurboCollage software from www.TurboCollage.com

Whilst we’re at it, some of us feeling the January blues, with colder degrees descending every day and signs of spring still far away, here’s a few thoughts, picks and tips currently on my mind…

1. To urgently refill one of my cannot-live-without daily skin boosters, Santa Maria Novella’s fascial rose water, a product that hasn’t been credited enough, longlasting and you don’t need to dig very deep in your pockets either, but hard to find elsewhere than their own stores I’m afraid.
2. Chloe’s new killer python loafers!
3. A relaxing holiday escape to a coconut island instantly!!
4. Winter sales are still ongoing, and as a knitlover high quality cashmere is always a good investment, the knit above is by The Row on 40% sales at Net-a-Porter, who’s also offering winter sales up to 70% right now.
5. All things ruffled, on sleeves, collars and detailing, this top by Gucci is no exception.
6. I’m not the greatest fan of basket style bags, but this raffia basket by Balenciaga got me onboard at first glance.
7. Celine’s SS16 earrings!!
8. Colder weather does no wonders for my skin, but Bamford’s new serum certainly does, can’t recommend it enough, one of the best serums I’ve ever come across, and perfect for sensitive skin types.

I’m not a beauty junkie, and don’t try on new products very often, but this organic beauty line based on Argan Oil by Norwegian Alexander Sprekenhus are new favourites of mine and deserves a shout out. Not only will I recommend them as brilliant products that really give your hair a hydrating boost, they also tick the boxes regarding design and price level too, thumbs up!
Hydrating Shampoo (£22), Hydrating Mask (£30), Hair Styling Elixir (£28).

Haven’t had time for shopping nor keeping track on what’s in store lately but when my mum visited this weekend I managed to get a quick over look and here are a few favorites that I wouldn’t mind at all now when it feels like spring is here. The silk set on the left by Topshop Boutique is already safely stored in my wardrobe and will be a winner worn as a whole paired with high heels and a clutch, or the perfectly wide high waisted trousers worn with a cropped top and midriff.

Silk T-shirt and silk trousers by Topshop Boutique, bermuda shorts by Helmut Lang, sandals by Alexander Wang, bag Phillip Lim, watch by Givenchy and denim jacket by Acne.

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).

Budget favorites

I wouldn’t mind any of these goodies, all for a very reasonable price, trousers by Nowhere, printed shirt Topshop, and a collar necklace from Asos with a Marni’ish feel to it, perfect to spice up a knitted jumper, like Frida.

Cos favorites

Some nice stuff at Cos right now, I already have the jeans and could wear them 24/7 as they are loose fit and so comfy, the cardigan with silk front looks promising, a little like Givenchy minus the panther don’t you think?

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!

Hmmm, though H&M’s Fall lookbook wasn’t really up my street for sure they have some goodies coming in, leather pieces and soft hairy jumpers, yes please! Wouldn’t mind these 3 pieces in my wardrobe, in store from August.
Gilet £80, jumper £30, shorts £40.

Zara has so many nice things in store right now, plenty of temptations and I’ve said it before, their handbags are getting better and better, most of them in real leather.

Balenciaga A/W 11-12

Images Style.com

At 9 am this morning I was glued to my screen to watch the Balenciaga show live and here’s some of the looks which pretty much represent the rest of the collection. I really like this even though I find some of the looks a bit hard to pull off but judged as individual pieces a completely different thing.

One keyword, leather, plenty of it, as jackets, trousers, fishnets, as patches and even some knitted detailed leather jackets, tops and bags. There were many of the floral patterned just-below-the-knee-skirts that I’m not over the moon about but I really think it works with the leather. The colors overall goes in black, white, blues, gray, burgundy and silver metallics and those booties, please send my way!

See the whole collection here.
