New Bags on the Block: Ralph Lauren, Kenzo & Ganni

Did you get through sale season unscathed? If you did, lie to me. Hide the high horse if you’re a role model of self control. ‘Cause I’m not. Neigh, I’m not.

It wasn’t just makeup that I caved in to, oh no. If someone was to make a chart about my bag purchase rate over the past year, it would be a consistent line until about two months ago, where it would grow more exponentially than the coronavirus crash to zero because I would start running with all my new bags under my arms before they could start counting them.

Makeup Log – 4th week: in which the goddamn virus cuts this project short.

Makeup Log is a series where I keep a record of the makeup looks I tried during the work week, the combinations of products I used and how they work out for me in an attempt to find the perfect makeup look for my wedding day. Because I’m crazy and I’ll be doing my own makeup.

I’ve been in a streak of bad luck. I don’t mean the coronavirus, which actually is putting the entire wedding party at risk – but that motherf*cker is everybody’s streak of bad luck, I’m aware. It’s just everything else around me that just. doesn’t. work.

Makeup Log – 3rd week: in which I gotta get my life together.

Makeup Log is a series where I keep a record of the makeup looks I tried during the work week, the combinations of products I used and how they work out for me in an attempt to find the perfect makeup look for my wedding day. Because I’m crazy and I’ll be doing my own makeup.

For the first half of the week I didn’t have time to do an eye look. For the second half I did but I forgot to take pictures right after and ended up only photographing later in the day at work with sh*tty lighting. Seriously, I gotta get back on track. It’s time to feel motivated again.

Layer It All On Me

I had to get up at 9:00 am on a Saturday. Is that information relevant to this post? No. But I’m still mad about it and I wanted to vent.

Being that I had to get up and out of the house so early, might as well look cute for the day. Spring is around the corner. And layers work great around this time because early in the morning it’s way colder than at noon – yes, 9:00 am is early. Before anyone calls me a wimp because they wake up at something like 6:00 am, let me tell you, 1st, they’re right, 2nd, 6:00 am is not early, it’s ungodly.

Makeup Log – 2nd week: something old, something new, something pink

I should have posted this on Sunday, but life has been crazy. Plus, I had a bad weekend. Bah. So just know that this post refers from the 24th to the 28th of February.

Last week was time to test out pink blushes.

4 days in Istanbul: not a Guide, a Diary

It took me some time to write these posts, clearly, since our trip was back in June 2019. But I didn’t want to rush it. I took my time reminiscing about the trip. Like telling a friend a story, instead of an excursion tour.

Here’s a recap of it, day by day:
