Fashion's Night Out

Fashion's Night Out 2010 PSA from Fashion's Night Out on Vimeo.

How I wish I was back in NYC. Last year, we missed FNO by a day, but I did manage to get a hold of the shirt for my sister, which by the way I like more than the one of this year. Anyhow, anyone any idea on if any european cities are participating?

J'aime mon carré - Hermès

As if those supercute How To Tie-cards you get when you buy an Hermès-scarf weren't enough, now the French fashion house launched a great site (which reminds me of Burberry's Art of the Trench!), filled with street style photographs that make choosing the right fold for your look even harder.

I'm crazy for scarfs and I do have many different looks and styles when it comes to this accessory, however I should pick and wear my Hermès one more often... I'm sure will give me some inspiration for next fall.

Estée Lauder

As mentioned before, I'm crazy for Clinique's All About Eyes. I can't last a day without the treatment and apply it faithfully every day and night. But last week, I got my hands on Estée Lauder's new Advanced Night Repair Eye and honestly, this superrich gel is fantastic. Since it's so creamy, it's perfect as a night treatment. 

I think All About Eyes and Advanced Night Repair Eye will make a lovely pair. And with all those anti-aging creams I've been applying, I better look like I'm still a twenty year old ten years from now, damn-it! ;)

D&G fashion film

My fashion/film thesis was head on; more and more designers would use film to promote their brand and collections... How I wish I could edit my thesis -which probably by now is collecting dust in our school's library- and write a paragraph on this project.

Dolce & Gabbana, Rome and Monica Belluci... What's not to like?

Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown has the cutest samples;
just look at that tiny anti-age serum-bottle. I know some say that 24 is far too young to be using anti-age products but you have to start protecting your skin against fine lines and all, before the damage is done. Anywho, this serum feels incredibly light and soft on my skin, which is always a great plus. I hate greasy, thick products.

Last night I tried Bobbi Brown's make-up remover as well, and this product wears perfectly too! Last night, for a late dinner with my family, I wore a lot of sparkly eyeshadow by M*A*C (green smoke -lustre) and some eyeliner too, which can be a hassle to remove. But I had no difficulties doing that, thanks to this Bobbi Brown-product. Plus, it was gentle enough for me, as a contact lens wearer.

Bobbi Brown's

Today I'm wearing a liquid blush on my cheekbones, called Highlighter Pen by Bobbi Brown. What's so great about this blush, is that the sparkling elements are so tiny and subtle, that 'now you see it and now you don't', which is perfect for daily use. It actually is so sublte that I couldn't even capture the effect on camera, so I just had to photograph the container instead. This one is going into my handbag permanently.

By the way, if you're a fan of Bobbi Brown and love to get weekly tips on how to apply make-up, make sure to visit the brand's Facebook page regularly! 

Blue de Chanel

Help! Since I miss working on my thesis, I've been looking for the new Scorsese-ad for Chanel's new fragrance, but I can't seem to find it anywhere: every time I enter "Blue de Chanel" on video-search engines, I end up with make-up tutorials...

I read about the ad online a while back, and I also found an article on the making of in next month's Glamour-issue, but no sign yet of the actual video...

Aveda Favorite

It's been a month now since I started working at Aveda, a premium hair and spa brand and part of the Estée Lauder family.

Ever since our NYC-trip, where we found Aveda-hair and body products in our hotel room, I've been a fan of its Shampure shampoo (amazing scent!) and the Smooth Infusion-line. And no need to say that the products are top quality and the great thing is that -by using Aveda- I'm actually contributing to a greener and nicer planet.

The past few weeks I got the opportunity to get a full Aveda-training, both hair as skinwise, and discovered even more amazing products. I'm currently using the Enbrightenment collection for my skin, to even my skin tone and I'm giving other hair products a go. And yes, I've got a new favorite!

I have really stubborn hair; always fluffy and wild. And during the Aveda Perfomance Hair-class I mentioned that I rarely use styling products because I don't like the feeling of greasy products in my hair. But then the Aveda-educator suggested that I should try the Light Elements Smoothing Fluid. Back home I give it a try and my hair immediately was smoother and had a healthy shine, without looking greasy. Throughout the whole evening it successfully protected my hair against frizz. The next day, again, I added only one drop of the serum-like fluid and once again my hair looked and more importantly felt great! I'm thrilled! I'm always the one who says that I hate my hair, but I've got a feeling that's about to change...

Currently I'm coloring my hair too, with Aveda and I love it's natural color and shine ... And to keep the color as nice as the first days after the coloring, I've tried the Clove Color Conditioner, which is a brown conditioner, and it gave my hair a nice warm glow. Fan! Fan! Fan!
