My skins

I am in a company training this week so not too much time to tell you about the wedding I attended last weekend.

So tonight you will have a quick post.

Lately, I have decided to "dress up" my mac book... And I love it.

I had heard about this website : www.gelaskins.com

I began to search something for my Macbook... And then I ended it up buying for my iphone and my blackberry.

I really liked the artistic approach of this website.
Here is  my mac Book skin :


Will come back soon.

YSL Creme blushes collection Spring 2011

You will discover that I am a real sucker for blushes...oh and lipsticks... oh and palettes.... Ok well everything that can be applied on the face and is classified as a beauty product.

My last discovery  was after a meeting with a customer in Paris, I walked back to my car and of course there it was .... a small and tiny Sephora. I got in convinced that I would not find anything interesting.... Wrong, wrong, wrong!!! Devil of Make Up had it all planned for me.

And here is a small part of the result :






I know that they came out a long time ago (YSL spring 2011 collection) and that I am late.
However, what I really like about them is that they are really creamy and easy to apply. After applying three dots on each cheek, you still have time to blend them. They don't dry out too quickly.
I usually apply them with my hand.

When it comes to pigmentation, they are good. No need to put too much on.
I would say the only down side is that they are very expensive, more or less 32 € each.

It is a product that I would really recommend if you have some money to spend on a good cream blush.

Thanks for coming and reading!

Goodbye beautiful hair....

There is only one thing in my body that I don't complain about and that I am happy and proud of : my long and curly/wavy hair!!



After living years and years with short hair, I have finally been allowed at 15 years old to let my hair grow and start enjoying having long hair..

I would say that I am not the courageous kind of girl when it comes to cutting and dying. I am the complete opposite.
So anxious every time I go to the hair dresser. I can easily take anything that can help stop a sudden increase of blood pressure each time I go to a hair salon.

As you may already know I just got a baby boy who is almost 7 months old now. It is my second pregnancy so I knew this time would come again...
You know the time where you put your hand in your hair and you end up with a full hand of hair....
YES, I AM TALKING ABOUT THIS TIME!!!

I wasn't really looking forward to it as everybody was giving so many compliments during my pregnancy about how my hair was long and shiny and beautiful....
Well this time is definitely over and now I spending my time taking off my falling hair out my boys.

But no, I won't take that as fatality and I have elaborated an action plan to get my healthy hair back.

I have decided to pay a little visit to Furterer in Paris where they offer a special treatment for post pregnancy damaged hair.
There I will buy some special treatments, I am sure and that will of course cost me at least my left arm.

Then I will keep on using my Morroccan Oil hair products convinced that they have a good effect on my hair.

And last but not least, as soon as my hair recover, I will go for a darker color. But I guess, to get there, I have plenty of time to think about it.

Any suggestions about the color ?

Moving ... Update

As I have already mentioned it before, I have just moved into a new house in a new town...
Many changes lately and I have to admit that I have a hard time to getting used to them.

In the beginning I thought, all those changes would be harder for my son (taller one, almost 4)... I was soooo wrong.
What is annoying is that I have more space than before, the house is gorgeous and I have already spent time on decorating the guests room.

I was talking to my neighbor today and he also admitted that he had never lived in a house before (same for me) and that after 4 months, he was just getting used to it.

This place is the dream place I have always dreamt of and I guess, it takes time to start over and have some kind of routine.

Most interesting topic is that I will finally have enough room to do a kind of make up room/dressing (like the one in SATC2 : Only part of the movie that I will remember during the rest of my life...).

I will definitely post regularly some update here on how this project moves forward.

Thanks for visiting and take care of yourself.

Céline advertisings

I have always loved the Celine brand advertisings. I always find the models very sexy and beautiful and the ads very classy.

I go on their website on a regular basis and check out the new collection.
This brand, since its creation has found a way to stay classy and at the same time very innovative and trendy.

So far I have never purchased anything from them. I look at their work with a lot of admiration.

Thanks for visiting and stepping by.

Moving moving moving....

Welcome if you ever get the chance to step by!
How funny it is... I am almost feeling very shy... Like when you meet somebody for the first time.

I won't start by presenting myself as you will learn about me, my life and personality along the way.
The major challenge will be to stay consistent.

Right now it is a crazy time as I will be moving into a completely new house within two weeks. As you can see we have already started to do some boxes.



Among all the boxes that we are packing 80% will be at the end full of my clothes and my shoes.... Shame, shame, shame? No, not really.... Just looking forward to putting all those clothes and shoes in my new closet.

Meanwhile, of course I keep on shopping and here are my latest purchases :

Maxi dress :



Flowers are definitely a must this summer and maxi dresses are so comfortable and so easy to put on. I am looking forward to wearing, as soon as , mister summer will decide to answer to my invitation.

More dresses....

A shorter version :



Blue and beige... Shorter version but still very nice. Love how you tie the dress.

Of course I have bought more but I guess I will leave it for a next post.

Thanks for coming and visiting.
