May

I hope everyone's enjoying a wonderful May and the explosion of blossoms and flowers that come with it. Ours has been partly summery and warm, but we've also had some cold wet windy days. My birthday fell on one of those, so we made up for it with a quick trip to Cannes a couple of days later where we had a lovely lunch on the beach to celebrate.



Magical dusk at the Baie of Cannes, when the Mediterranean sea turns into soft pastels framed by the foothills of the l'Esterel Mountains.



My new CSGM Sous l'Egide de Mars and Kelly Double Tour bracelet in Rose Sekura. Wearing the shawl in a cowboy knot, ends secured in a criss-cross knot with a Grande Classique reversible scarf ring in pale pink/gris. Mini bag: Wallet on Chain by Chanel (perfect for city trips and any other occasion when you want to keep your cards and cash extra safe)



Kelly Double Tour bracelet in Rose Sakura with a Guerlain KissKiss LoveLove lipstick in 570 Coral and a Dior Addict Lip Glow color reviver balm in 210 Holo Pink.





Sous l'Egide de Mars in the basic bias fold which brings out the soft pink, purple and cream colors in the centre of the scarf.



Spring make-up additions: Chanel Les Beiges Compact Powder 20, Guerlain Météroides Compact Medium, Guerlain KissKiss as above, Rouge G De Guerlain matte 01 and Dior Addict Lip Glow as above.



I am often asked about my lipstick, and the secret lies in mixing and matching. I use lip liner for definition, but make sure to fill the lips completely to avoid a 'lip-lined' look. My favorite liner pencils are Bois de Rose and Brun Tendre by Mavala. You can match your lipstick to your liner, or experiment by using different color combinations to achieve more depth, and to fine tune the end result to your outfit or scarf.

Spring!

Spring is here in full bloom and blossom, carrying the promise of long and warm days ahead and a sense of excitement that only the two big season changes can bring. As the days grow longer and warmer, and the wardrobe gets gradually switched from warm and cosy winter pieces to lighter fabrics and colors, it feels like shedding a cocoon. I've added a couple of new wardrobe staples to my capsule wardrobe, which are a perfect canvas for the spring collection of long gemstone necklaces and lighter and brighter scarves.

Below: Georges Rech Tweed jacket and a couple H& M tops (both a steal at 9.95 EUR each): fine knit v-neck sweater in pale pink (US site here) and light beige linen t-shirt (US site here)


I hope you enjoy the post and have a wonderful and happy spring!
