It's finally the weekend and it's time to blog! Here is my Friday OOTD because on the weekends I literally just spend the whole day in my pjs. I decided to dress a little more edgy on Friday so I threw on my light blue faux-fur coat from Zara under a simple mid turtle-neck top from Joseph. As I wanted to focus my outfit on my fuzzy jacket I wore an all black outfit. My slit jeans are from asos as well as my patent leather chelsea boots. I literally have only worn high waisted black jeans the whole week because they are so comfy and easy to wear with any outfit. My necklaces are both diy, all I did was take two black thin ropes and added cute little charms (elephant and crystal). I thought they added a little boho touch to the outfit. xx
A COOL WINTER OUTFIT THAT IS SUPER COSY AND CUTE. I POPPED ON SOME BLACK KNEE HIGH SOCKS WITH MY MESH PANELLED (MID LENGTH) SLEEVED DRESS FROM PULL&BEAR AND BOOTS FROM DR.MARTENS. I TOPPED OFF THE LOOK WITH MY FAVE FLEECE LINED BUCKET HAT. HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE THE OUTFIT XXX KISSES T
Hey Lovelies, Happy new Year!! BONNE ANNÈE!! Wishing you all the best THIS 2015!
WHAT'S TRENDY THIS SEASON: floppy felt hats. They are comfy, WARM and chic to wear. I purchased mine from asos, they sell loads, BIG, BEAUTIFUL IN SOLID COLOURS. These hats are perfect to wear IN THE COOLER SEASONS and I personally think that they are a staple piece in my closet , AS IS my bucket hat.
THE big trend in makeup sEEMS TO BE highlighting and contouring. I absolutely love it! Choosing the right products is ESSENTIAL. contourING or highlightING ONES FACE, WILL ENHANCE AN AREA OF YOUR FACE AND CAN HIGHLIGHT A SPECIAL FEATURE. I ENJOY faking a dewy summer glow in winter, One product that I love using is the topSHop all over glow. It's gives my skin a super natural HEALTHY GLOW. Another product i like using is the clarins spendour summer bronzing compact. It's buildable and IS SUBTLE, I USE AN ANGLED BRUSH TO HIT UNDER MY CHEEKBONES AND JAW BONE TO GIVE MYSELF A MORE SLENDER ELONGATED FACE. If you guys haven't tried highlighting or contouring yet, you really should! IF YOURE NOT TOO CONFIDENT ON WHAT TO DO, CHECK OUT 'YOU TUBE' THERE ARE MANY ACE-MAKEUP ARTISTS THAT OFFER GREAT TECHNIQUES. MAKE-UP'S fun to apply , YOU MIGHT AS WELL DO IT WELL.
NOTE: CONTOURS ARE MEANT TO BE MATTE, HIGHLIGHTS ARE MEANT TO HAVE SHIMMER.
Hey, ok so my latest obsession has been james turell's art. This guy is a genius and his art is SIMPLY my cup of tea. I 'VE been endlessly, ADDICTIVELY.... scrolling through instagram #lacma POSTS (aka los angeles contemporary museum art) and WAS BLOWN AWAY by THE pieces OF 'LIGHT ART' . WHO WAS The GENIUS BEHING these MAGNIFICENT, ginormous art pieces : James turell.
I then googled him and IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED WITH his love of lights. HIS ART Primarily USES light and space THAT ENGAGE VIEWERS WITH THE LIMITS AND WONDER OF HUMAN PERCEPTION. Turrell is best known for his work in progress, 'roden crater' a natural cinder cone crater located outside Arizona that he is turning into a massive naked eye observatory, WHEN COMPLETED , IS SAID WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO HEIGHTEN OUR SENSE OF THE HEAVENS AND EARTH.
PERSONALLY THIS IS MY KIND OF ART, I could LITERALLY spend hours staring at city lights, road lights, club lights... any kind of light, LOVE THE PHYSICAL PRESENCE OF LIGHT AND ITS SENSORY FORM. I do recommend checking out his artwork because ITS DREAMY. .. byeee xx
Hope you are all well. I recently spent a day out with a very close friend of mine in Cannes. We just strolled around the shops, looking out for RAD christmas gifts for the family and took loads of pics. We spent hours trying on dainty pieces of jewellery and taking artsy pics of the weirdest things like dark car parks, lights and allies. We edited our pics in a cosy café, caught up on gossip,drinking freshly squeezed juices and nibbling on cookies. Later in the evening we literally walked through more car parks, ran up the stairs at the Palais de Festivals in the rain, blasted my soundcloud playlist and admired the luschious and tropical plants around us. Original no? Here are some pics of our ootds and pics we took.
boots: Doc Martens
ginormous raincoat: Schöffel (my dad's)
jeans: Mavi Gold (diyed the ripped knees)
dainty layered necklaces: h&m, pull and bear,topshop

Hey there. Recently I have been cleaning up my closet and spotted this bright coloured dress with an asian vibe, from the VERSACE for H&M collection 2012. May I just say that their collection was to DIE for. The dress has shiny red mousse shoulder pads (an 80's comeback) and geometrical cut outs on the neck. I love the colour palette on this dress, the beautiful floral details and vibrant origamis designs on the fabric are so sweet. The arms come in two different colours, i love that, as its Quirky....reminds me of something that the Spicegirl's would have worn. If you guys read my last blog (Alexander Wang collab with H&M) I threw on a super thick and textured Alexander Wang jumper over this dress. Its nice falling in love again with a piece i've owned for ages. MY ADVICE: skim through your wardrobe once in a while, mix-match and re-vive xxx bye bye
Hi everybody. Yesss the moment is finally here... The Alexander Wang's electric capsule collection for H&M. I have been waiting for the collection since the minute I heard about the collab last year. I follow Alexander Wang on Instagram and 'of course' joined the facebook event... yep I've been really excited. I remember one of the last collabs with H&M which was with the house of Versace and the collection was absolutely devine. I'm not a huge H&M fan but especially love their collaborations with haute couture designers. An affordable way to build a luxurious wardrobe at a fraction of the costs. After queuing for over an hour at H&M Nice, my nervousness and excitement paid off. The minute I laid my eyes on the collection, I knew I would love it all. I noticed Alexander Wang used a lot of neoprene, mesh and perforated leather in his collection. As I am a huge fan of black and white, the collection was so appealing to me. The collection also tied in a sports theme and underground edge. I purchased two square crop tops in white and a black with the WANG logo embossed. In the photos I paired the crop top with an ultra cool pair of Alexander Wang's high waisted black leather jogging pants. What I love about the pants is its loose fit. I styled my look with a chunky crystal ear cuff and my black platform heels. I generally kept the look sleek and crisp. My next piece was an ultra thick rigid, neoprene textured jumper, chunky, heavy but edgy. In my shoot I teamed it with a bright coloured Versace/H&M dress and a pair of black platform birkenstock's and an on-trend holographic clutch. My final piece that I loved and will be using quite a bit, is the Alexander Wang sports shorts. Here he mixed a scuba stretch fabric and mesh. Modern, textured and sporty!!!
After my quick, maniac shop....I then found out that a few pieces of the collection was also available online, and was fortunate enough to order a few more pieces and shall blog about them when I receive them. The Alexander Wang H&M collection personally appealed to me, mainly because of its modern edge and sporty simplicity and of course the affordability. xxx Tara
