Not just a pretty face.

About a month ago I got invited to the department store Liberty beauty press day, on this day they present all the new brands and products for the season. One thing that caught my eye was the brand Lixir, yes I admit it was mainly due to the extraordinary and pretty packaging. We do love a good packaging, don't we? But this brand is more than just a pretty face (hence the title of this post) in my goodie bag the Universal Emulsion cream followed my home. Let me tell you, It is magic. I use it in the morning before applying my makeup since it's a moisturizer, night creme and serum base, all in one (!!!!).


Colette Haydon a doctor of dermo-pharmacy and founder of the brand explains that the creme isolates the skin from UV and pollution (we need this in London) and skin is left dewy (not oily ) velvety, smooth, firm, compact and plump.

Yes yes yes, to this cream, I'm a fan and now also an addict.

Vlog: Last week’s fashion moments

So I'm starting this week with yet another Vlog, this time it's a mix from different fashion moments last week.

Enjoy your Monday!

on my mind deco


Inspired by the home of interior designer & decorator Monica Damontes and her summer house in Saint Tropez, all I want to do is mix azur blue, turquoise and brass. I love when deco stays organized without being boring. The aim when decorating is to make it clean but always keep the feeling that someone is actually living there, witch I defiantly get the impression when looking in her house. It's all the small things that make it! Since I got myself a new home office I want to use this colors inspiration to my desk, here is a few things I wouldn't mind.

aesop facial mist


The other day I read THIS post from Caroline, the editor in chief of the Swedish magazine Chic, where she talked about her obsession for facial mist. I hear ya Caroline! One thing we share in common is the love for this product above, since discovering it I'm not sure I can live without it. Nothing makes me feel more fresher and more hydrated then this little spray. And also once you finished applying your make-up spray the mist on it and the make-up will stay longer. Go grab it!

stay organized

filofaxNothing makes me feels so good then when I stay organized. I LOVE making to-do list, or let's say lists in general. It calms me down to note what I did and will do in my agenda. I use different colors and highlight important stuff, I can not for the world understand people who uses electronic calendars I need to write it by hand (how else can you make cute drawings next to it?)

So I finally invested in this agenda from Filofax, I wanted something colorful but still classy and what's more classy then red leather? Looking forward to share a lot with this new friend!

put a knot on it

knot1knotI bought this silk  handkerchief from Libertys men's department in sale this winter. It might be for men to put in to their suit pocket but I plan to use it other ways. This summer I will wear it around my wrist as seen on the picture above, maybe also tie it around my bag as well for decoration, or in a more classical way around my neck. The options are endless with just a little silk scarf!

Happy Friday!

The safe card for dry hands this winter is definitely  this hand cream from aésop. The packaging is really nice as well  which means double thumbs up!

And the best thing? Once you put it not only your hands but the entire room smells wonderful.



london to paris, and then back again

garedenordOn of the perks of living in London is that you can easily go to Paris with the Eurostar over the day (I say that, but mind you that I did live 3 years in Paris without visiting London one single time). This is exactly what I did this Sunday I went early in the morning and returned in the evening. It was for work duties so I didn't  have time to go around the city, but just passing through my old city in the cab gave me a good feeling. Altought I must say that I was happy to return to London, it is truly my home now. Funny how the human so easily adapt isn't it?

Since I was so busy working, I didn't have time to take photos, expect for this one from Gare de Nord, just before taking the train home. Not to shabby photo after all, it is a beautiful station when you look at the architecture.



white nails



Any of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen my latest nail polish color. I got inspired by a woman passing by at my work who wore a similar color on her nails, and I did a copy cat. It happens to me a lot that I get inspired from regular people on the street, and especially in a big city as London where there is constant flow of inspiration and creative people everywhere.

Now Sunday duties.
