My Pink Elephant - May Obsessions

Hello May and summer! It's finally here and I hear you all say "OH NO!" Well we had a good run with a cold winter and an actual Spring this year so let's not complain too much about the heat wave coming our way. So between this season’s new trends and spring collection releases, I had plenty to obsess about this month! Here are some my favorite May treats and incase you didn't know May has always been one of my favorite months of the year, it's very name brings to mind beautiful imagery. Flowers, pastels, flawy fabric and fruity desserts (hey, don't judge! Food is important, especially good food!)

So this month it was easy to put together this post, just a bunch of pretty items with florals and graceful colors oh and Star Wars! I'm a Sci-Fi fan and I am so excited about the new Star Wars movie. I was not a fan of the newer 3 in the series, but I really believe that Disney will bring us back to the golden days of Star Wars.  In short, wear a lot of brights this May, maybe let Elie Saab inspire you (I know he does for me) and don't be afraid to mix and match patterns & bright colors like the super fashionable Helena Šopar.

I Want Wednesday - MSGM Floral Pants

Ok, so yesterday I got busy and didn't have time to post my I Want Wednesday post  but here it is. These pants are just so summery and bright, merely looking at them takes me on vacation! And you know what? They've just inspired a new post - going tropical! 

Don't you love it when things work out like that? I had no idea what my next post was going to be, but now I have three! So stay tuned for a tropical post, Mays Obsessions and What I'm Loving!

Kate Moss x Topshop ... The Icon Is Back

"Nothing looks as good as skinny feels." - Kate Moss

Where does one start when it comes to Kate Moss? She's been an industry icon for decades now and just when we all thought she was old news, she's back with a new collaboration collection with Topshop. I have to admit that I'm not really too in love with the collection but I do like that it has a wide variety of styles and so there is something for everyone. These are my favorites and I added prices based on the UK site but I can't promise that they'll be the same here.  

The Topshop team have been kind enough to invite me to a special pre-launching of the collection tomorrow morning at the Avenues. I don't know if I'll be able to make it because of work but I'm sure it's going to be great. And what do you think about that little black playsuit!? It's ADORABLE! <3

Makeup Crush - IsaDora

If you know me then you know that I am not loyal to a particular makeup brand so I am always on the lookout for something new that will do the job better. I generally have go-to's (I'll share my current makeup bag with you soon) but I do keep my eyes open. So when this showed up on my door (a big thanks to my friends at Habchi and Chalhoub), I was so excited and I'm being so honest when I say that these did not disappoint. The gloss is lovely and the mascara is just amazing, it doesn't clump and is really lengthening. The blush is so easy to use and gives me a little bit of a glow without looking like a clown, something I've had an issue with blush sticks before.

Their products are fragrance free, clinically test in order to avoid any allergic reactions (as a white girl with sensitive skins that is amazing) and are, of course, not tested on animals. That last item is something that is close to my heart, it's a terrible thing to find out that your favorite products are animal tested... so cruel. But anyways, I'm not 100% sure but I think IsaDora available at Faces but the next time you are looking for something new, make sure you keep IsaDora in mind!

I Want Wednesday - 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini

Hey dolls! So running this blog drives me crazy as much as it makes me happy. I love fashion or I wouldn't be doing this to myself and by this I mean subjecting myself to the torturing task of combing through pages and pages of products and finding my favorite trends and items. So I have decided to share with you items that might not necessarily fit in any trend or post I'm working on but I am lusting after in a major way. 

So to get this show on the road, I'm gonna start with a bag that I've wanted for such a long time, but have just not taken the plunge; the Pashli mini. Phillip Lim is just brilliant and this bag shows that brilliance and just when you think he wouldn't make improve a good thing, he does! I present you with a polka-dot Pashli mini! Now if only I had some savings....

Femininity on Steroids

Alright, so we live in a world were traditional notions of beauty and grace have become blurred with the edginess of the time. I look at our fashion and see the blend of the past 30 decades and it's so interesting. Whether it's leather leggings or see-thru tops, horoscope items and kaleidoscope pieces, they all call back to older ages but with more sophistication and class than their slightly tackier counterparts.



The Hiatus Ends


Yep, you heard me. This hiatus has officially come to an end. I have decided that I need to get back into the swing of things and after a lot of thinking about the direction that this blog will take, I have come to a conclusion: I don't know where this will go. But that doesn't mean I have to keep waiting till I figure it out. This will change, it will grow and develop into something else, and that doesn't have to be a bad thing. I hate the idea of being restricted, and so I am giving myself free reign. Anything pretty and related goes. So stay tuned for something new, and something old too!
