Current Favourite Red

Current Favourite Redfeatured

I love how a red lip can totally transform both your outfit and your mood. And also make you late for a meeting, but that’s beside the point. My current favourite is this Too Faced liquid lipstick in a colour with a highly intellectual name “Lady Balls”. What’s yours? Shop the look:

Oversized Faux Fur

Oversized Faux Furfeatured

Met up with fellow bloggers last week, and immediately got inspired to shoot something new. I always love this sudden surge of ideas after talking to creative people. You can see the result in my previous post. I wore this simple look completely transformed with luxurious faux fur to the brunch, Natasha kindly took these Read more

Valentine’s Day Makeup Look

Valentine’s Day Makeup Lookfeatured

Fred is the perfect male model: he always looks handsomely rugged, confident and his “hey, girl” look is phenomenal. He is also the perfect Valentine, since he brings me breakfast in bed weekly (usually a mauled cat food container dug out from the trash), never forgets about flowers (in that he tears apart my cacti, Read more

Casual Outfit in Fussen

Casual Outfit in Fussenfeatured

I take so many photos when traveling, there’s an endless supply of unpublished material on my hard drive. I got so excited about pretty dresses I shot during that trip (here and here), this casual look was forgotten for while. Until I stumbled upon this set last week. Frolicking somewhere around the magic German mountains, wearing Read more

Shades of Pink (for Valentine’s Day)

Shades of Pink (for Valentine’s Day)featured

Let’s face it: no one likes February. Holidays are over, the first snow excitement transforms into the dirt and sleet annoyance, and there’s still a sizeable chunk of winter left. If ever there is a time to shop for happy pink pieces, it is now, especially if you’re sitting in front of a gloomy window. Also, it Read more

Laduree Valentine’s

Laduree Valentine’sfeatured

Getting macarons for Valentine’s day is cliche for reason – it always works. I’m open to discussion on where they make the best ones, but we all know there’s no competition in the most elaborate approach. Laduree is the highest form of high tea. And you get everything you expect from French high tea in Laduree Read more

How to Wear Colourful Leather

How to Wear Colourful Leatherfeatured

Leather is widely regarded as a tough and rocker-chic addition to an outfit, but brightly-coloured leather is often overlooked in this equation. Colourful pieces bring a dash of fun to any look, and I see them popping up in many online stores. Try Farbod Barsum, Topshop or ASOS for all your colourful leather shopping needs. Read more

Ombre Coat

Ombre Coatfeatured

Wore this ombre faux suede coat to see La La Land last week. It might not be the movie of the year, but it is beautifully shot and the sentiment is sweet. Had a little rant about it on Instagram, as you do these days. Because if you don’t, have you really seen the movie? I Read more

Warm & Fuzzy (& Uncooperative)

Warm & Fuzzy (& Uncooperative)featured

When I saw this soft fuzzy set, I immediately knew that I need to shoot it with Finn. That was the exact moment Finn knew that he would not cooperate. So here are three shots I managed to get between wrestling with the cloudy demon, before having to substitute him for a feather Christmas tree Read more
