DIVA ON MY LIPS


This is literally a business outfit that combines classic pieces as this pencil skirt which brings so much elegance and attitude to the look and this amazing shirt. Twice in neutral colors such as black and beige. However, to go out of the classic and to make it more dramatically I chose a dark lipstick. The Diva from Mac was the perfect shade with its wine color. Specially that it matched magnificently with the bag and the shoes that are in a burgundy color. I really loved this big bag and also the shoes that are so much Yves Saint Laurent inspired ! For the make-up I focused on highlighted lips and soft eyes to avoid the "too-much" effect. Hope you love it !

Wisdom comes with experience, not teeth



.....or so I hope, because my four wisdom teeth are all gone. Some people have very quick recoveries from oral surgery. I am not one of those people. 

However, I must admit that apart from the nausea, an allergic reaction to my antibiotic, pain, pain and more pain, and the inability to stay awake for more than an hour, it has been rather nice to be doted on. I'm lucky as my mother-in-law is staying with us and has pampered me with soups, kasha, and smoothies. 

The best part? My love has been feeding my absolute obsession with ice cream every night. And even better? It has had no effect on my waistline (enter nausea). 

Although it's rather sad as this pampering has been tapering off and I am forced to be a big girl and "suck it up". Sob.

I'm back on my feet today, as it was the first day of a new semester. I also did a small load of laundry. Which made me feel as if I had just climbed Mt. Everest. Twice. I'm not joking when I say I took a nap afterwards.

Tuesdays are supposed to be the new "Going Natural" series, but I'll post on that this Friday, instead, and then resume the usual schedule next Tuesday (I've got some great new products to introduce you to!). 

Have you had your wisdom teeth out? How was it? 

p.s. I was terrified of receiving general anesthesia (a light formulation via IV)...but it was actually quite nice. When I brought up that I wanted to do local anesthesia, the dentist suggested that if I did not have a keen interest in oral surgery I should go for the happy drugs and sleep. 

It is strange, however, to not remember a chunk of time, or scatterings of the hours afterward. Thankfully I did not say/do anything embarrassing in my anesthetized state. Winning.

GREEN



Last weekend my outfit was totally green. The light was always changing as sun came and disappeared one minute after the other one. That's why you can see different shades of green on my dress. I decide to accessorize my look with this necklace that is so powerful and gorgeous. Then, heels to stretch out the silhouette. Oh my good, I love this look !! what about you ? I hope you will love !!!

ETHNIC PRINTS


Oh my Blog!! I have been so busy this week that I just couldn't post so much looks as I wanted !! I must admit that I have been a bit disorganized this week, shame on me!
But now I have to redeem myself and the best way is of course to start posting now, hehe..
So a couple of days ago, I got an ethnic print look. Well, to tell you the truth and more exactly, this is aztec patterns. Effectively, ethnic is a general word that includes tribal, aztec and so many other patterns. But my skirt here precisely has aztec prints. In fact, the main characteristics of aztec prints are the triangular geometrical shape in various ways and also the colorful. 
Then I decided to wear this bright and beautiful skirt, that was the key of the look, and that is in my opinion perfect for a powerful summertime. As I was getting dressed for all day long, I preferred build up a classic look with a shirt that everybody might have in its garderobe and some simple accessories. However, I am really excited to try a more daring evening version soon. All that sparkle on the skirt is perfect for the night too. Don't you think ? Hope you love it and wish you all a wonderful weekend :-)!
