Fun fact: it takes me more time to pick up an outfit than to get my make-up done. I’ve always stand by the quote “Less is more” when it comes to my beauty essentials and by that, I mean choosing the right products for me. During those hectic Parisian days, I had a simple but very efficient makeup routine that was Fashion Week approved. Here are the five (easy) steps I follow religiously.
Guys! I survived Fashion Month (actually 3 weeks because I skipped New York this season ;)). It was one crazy but oh so rewarding journey! I met so many inspiring people, discovered tons of new brands and had the chance to assist to beautiful presentations. Although organizing all these meetings takes lots of time (thank you Mel!) the stressful part for me is picking out the outfits! I mean choosing 21 looks (and more because sometimes we do change during the day) was absolutely insane! On the other hand, I was beyond excited to partner up with one of my favorite brand, Aldo! A look is nothing without a great pair of shoes and I had so much fun styling all the different pairs I picked out! Here are some of my preferred street styles from London, Milan and Paris.
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Fashion Month has to be the most stressful period of the year for me. The planning itself is quite something but nothing compared to actually running around from one show to another while shooting and trying to grab something to eat. Although my skin is not naturally very sensitive, all the travels, junk food and stress are not helping out. This season, I tried to prioritize my skincare routine and to follow all the steps in order to have a glowing skin and reduce all signs of fatigue.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned through my years of blogging is the fact that I collected way too many clothes that I’ve only worn once or twice. Not only does it take me 3 hours in the morning to find what I’m looking for (ughhh I need a walk-in closet in my life) but I’ve realized I was missing some essentials in my wardrobe. I used to be attracted to some major statement pieces that weren’t necessarily fitting my everyday needs (aka running from meetings to the airport to presentations and so on). Since last Fall I’m trying to focus on more versatile pieces and the EILEEN FISHER System program is simply perfect. Here’s why.
This is how my ideal Sunday looks like :). I spent last week-end at the 7 Islas Hotel in Madrid and already checking my calendar to plan my next getaway. Madrid has a special place in my heart. I just love the energy of this city so much! With so many good restaurants, unique shops and trendy hotels I might start looking for an apartment there sooner or later!
