Platinum Challenge

Platinum Challenge

The Fashion Medley | Platinum ChallengeOk first of all I know that the hair above is beyond platinum but it was so freakin beautiful that I had to put it here. Second of all, I’ve never wanted to do anything with my hair more than I want to dye it platinum blonde right now. I hardly believe that it would work on me; a wheat skinned girl with black brows, high cheekbones and a big nose, most probably I’d look just as bad as I did last Halloween with the “Sandy” wig. But I still want to give it a try, so so bad. Two things holding me back: 1) the effort and money that will go into dyeing it every 2 weeks (I’m extremely lazy when it comes to hair) 2) my non-dyed silky hair will be ruined forever.

Have you tried it? Do you have any comments or recommendations? Should I give it a go?

In Too Deep

In Too Deep

burberry ss2015 Deep red lipsIt’s almost impossible to describe this particular and exquisite shade of red. It’s not burgundy, definitely not maroon. Not apple red, pretty sure not vermillion either. Closest I can come is Venetian red, or to put it more simply, a deep red. Perfect for fall make up (and spring 2015 make up, thinks Christopher Bailey for Burberry), this shade would look good on every skin tone and for every occasion. How do  I know? MAC Ruby Woo – which I can crown as the king of all lipsticks in the world – is the only shade of lipstick I’ve ever worn, will ever wear with confidence day & night. Hint: choose a matte lipstick in a rich hue for a more refined and striking look & always use a lipliner.

To School For Cool

To School For Cool

two braids styleWith Alexa Chung fearlessly embracing her double braids yet again watching the Topshop Unique show at London Fashion Week, school braids are back under the microscope. Besides the Lolita charm and the effect to unwomanize any look, school braids have always been my favorite since it’s the only way I can actually twist my short hair into a braid long enough to show and see it. Yay for being too school for cool.

Less is Really Less

Less is Really Less

tory burchWhen it comes to Spring/Summer 2015 runway, less make up means no make up at all. So take good care of your skin this winter, we won’t be using anything other than moisturizer or simply a BB or a CC cream (have no idea what they are and how they are used) next spring. A peachy pink blush, silicone brushed rimmel and shiny lipglosses are also allowed & thick and bushy eyebrows are encouraged.

Most Beautiful Flaw

Most Beautiful Flaw

perfect-frecklesaI honestly can’t believe that people are thinking of freckles as a “flaw” because for me, it’s one of the most beautiful features a person can have. I don’t remember not thinking once that a freckled woman is beyond gorgeous. Every single woman on my “most beautiful in the world” list has freckles and I remember sitting down under the sun for hours when I was a teenager just for my imaginary freckles to pop up.

Point: if you’re struggling with your “flaw” right now, just please don’t. You are so freakin beautiful. Although I’m pretty sure you are feeling the same way I feel about people thinking curly hair is the awesomest thing in the world now. Just talk to me after a bath when there’s %90 humidity, right?

All I Can Ink About

All I Can Ink About

inkedYou know what they say about tattoos: once you pop, you can’t stop. I got my first (and only, for now) tattoo 4 years ago, a small paper plane on my left inner arm and hadn’t thought about getting another one since then. It was simply because that was my dream tattoo and after that I didn’t want to get another one just for the sake for inking my body. But almost exactly 4 years later, my mind is flowing with ideas and I can’t think of anything else. I don’t think I, being a 5’3″ girl, am a big enough canvas for so many gorgeous tattoos. Nor have I that big of a bank account.
