SS 2010

Whimsical, feminine, and innocently flirty.



Isn't today's quote beautiful?
(I was quite moved by it.)

    More grainy webcam pics, because my camera is being une snob.

Today I tested out a blush one of my best friends recommended, Benefit's Dandelion, and I loved it
(I only wanted a very light shade- something that was not so obvious, but rather a colour enhancer).
However, I do have un petit problème: the brush is unsuitable for proper blush application.
If anyone can recommend a good quality travel size blush brush, I'm all ears.
(I like travel size anything, because my make-up is always applied on the train. No, I will not wake-up earlier.) Other than that, la vie se déroule tellement bien! =D What's up with all of you?
Adios!

Hello my beautiful readers,

This week has been filled with several unfortunate events, so I am just doing a small update with an outfit post. I hope everything has been going well on your end, and I shall do a proper post soon. Cheers! =D


The desert print silk scarf and slouchy knit top are my latest vintage finds.

Hey everyone!

Carolann Dematos over at Wunderpug-Graphics did a petit post/feature about me this week. If you're interested in reading 7 quirky facts about myself, and other lovely bloggers, click here*. Hope you are all doing well! Have any of you tried wine red lipstick (as seen above)? I'm not too keen about putting anything on my lips, to be quite frank, but I think this look is so lovely. Maybe I'll be gutsy when I go to Europe this year. I feel we are are not as open-minded here in North America. Anyway, I hope to be doing a make-up post soon for matchstick.ca. Be on the look out for that! Talk to you lovelies soon <3
