Beauty / 10.03.2013

Mes sweethearts,

It was a close call my honey buns, the failure of the blog was like I was missing a limb… If the washing machine is stubborn, if the sink is blocked up, if I have to become Mario Bros or to put in a shelf with a drill, dowels and everything else, I am not scared a bit. But when it comes to the internet with html codes and DNS servers, I feel like Bill Murray in Lost in translation. And the more I try to understand something, the more I feel like missing the point completely. So, once I got over being powerless, I had to find someone to handle the crisis during a weekend – I therefore want to thank Romain S. like 5000 times for helping me recover my eyesight (or something similar!).

So, crisis 2.0 handled, here is my little movie about New York and the fashion week with Gemey Maybelline. You’ll see, it was busy (but you knew that already) ! I hope you’ll enjoy it. I have to say that each time I come back from NY I ask myself «When are we going back?» and I know that we always think the grass is brighter next door but damn I would love to live there ! One thing is certain: buildings are higher on the other side of the atlantic ocean… I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and to ward off the sunday-night-blues, I will leave you to NYC’s company (so you can plan your next holidays ?)

I kindly kiss you!

PS: If you didn’t have enough backstage, make-up and other mouse’s pics, rendezvous on the brand’s tumblr

Happy friday / 08.03.2013

Happy Friday honeys !

 Just a quick word to update you with fresh news from the front. Here everything is fine despite the shitty weather – it will not reach me, I am in a powerful phase and I decided not to feel down – and as we say work is good for you! So I’m throwing myself deep into my work (for a change)! I have looots of posts ready for you to read and after 3 months in my life as a freelance, I am finally getting myself organized ! A jewelry DIY isn’t far to thank you for your fidelity and your support emails and comments! And also a special week is coming… And also news, a big contest and soon a new design that I still have to work on… So as you can see I keep myself busy ! I come back soon with nice projects, the end of the NY series and more collaborations that I care about !

 Je vous embrasse !

 Today I’m wearing a sweatshirt by Little fashion gallery – yes yes you did read it right, Little fashion gallery is launching a line of clothes for children from 0 to 10 years old, very in and very cheap ! Don’t panic, I cannot wear a 10-years-old sweatshirt, this one was made especially for the team and I saw my chance to talk to you about it. I’m sure there are mummies among you that would fall for a golden tutu or a sorbet cardigan for their kids. It is also a good address if you have a baby shower or a birthday party and you need a gift.

Back to our Happy friday #40… How time flies! Under this highschooly sweatshirt, I’m wearing my shirt-collar top from COS. I’m also wearing a stolen from Ryan Gosling jacket from Zara and a leopard printed short from Zara as well that I don’t seem to be able to get rid of (it almost went into the last vide dressing suitcase). Opaque tights (yes, I know…) and hobnailed derbies that are a little too gorgeous by Georgia Rose.

Beauty / 06.03.2013

My littles kittens,

It is quite late to post – besides it’s funny to say that there is a time to post, like there would be a perfect timing or something, given that I am the one who fixes the rules… I’d love to surprise you by posting at any time day or night BUT there is something you need to know about me: I cannot stay awake after midnight, unless I have a deadline the next morning and liters of coffee to help me… But I usually sleep like a log, like one who crashes at the second I lay down, it’s physical, like a doll who would close her eyes when you put her horizontally… 

 

SEE-BY-CHLOE-PARFUM

 

Anyway! I had a big laugh thanks to your challenges… I can say that many of you wanted me to do many things under the Eiffel Tour, or to be naked in the streets of Paris with food over my face… Well…What can I say… I was ready to put my swimsuit by the Canal St Martin but it never came out, and in terms of timing and logistics, I have no dress of Cendrillella and no bird costume in my closet… Therefore I leave you to the three winners, I admit I didn’t go too far… But I did make the passers-by laugh, and I can still feel the consequences of some of them.

Winner #1: Marianne F @Mariou @makemylemonade «Can you make a tuto beauty/hairstyle to a pedestrian in the street ?» Yes, this one was the easiest… By I love the idea of a style squad! Challenge #1

Winner #2: Mandine @Amandouni @makemylemonade « Dare to do a Happy Friday with ALL the clothes from your closet ?» Well yes, and my photographer roared with laughter! Okay, I don’t actually wear all my clothes but I couldn’t put on more. Challenge #2

Winner #3: Oph @LilOph @makemylomande «Will you dare to go out wearing a tutu with your cat in your arms ??» This one was on paper the simplest and the coolest BUT Frida freaked out and mangled my back so I didn’t want to traumatize her any further so we stayed one metre away from my front door, but it still counts ! Challenge #3
