Beauty Inspiration: Dior Cruise 2012 Collection

I was away for a week and was extremely busy so I didn’t really have time to serf the Web for any beauty related things. But here is what caught my attention when I came back.

It is simply stunning! Everything about it! Jac is gorgeous, so are the makeup and clothes.

You can also see the nail polishes from the Spring 2012 makeup collection which is gorgeous by the way! The lilac one on this photo.

And the pastel lime green on the next one.

The Best Drinks For Holidays

Holidays are here! I don’t know about you but I like a tasty drink or 2 🙂 during the holidays so I though it would be nice to make a post about my favourite drinks for winter holidays. I’ve chosen 3 drinks for you 🙂

Grog

The word originally referred to a drink made with water (or weak beer) and rum, which was introduced into the English Royal Navy in 1740. Modern versions of the drink are often made with hot or boiling water, and sometimes include lemon juice, lime juice, cinnamon or sugar to improve the taste. Rum with water, sugar and nutmeg, known as bumboo, was more popular with pirates and merchantmen.

How to make it:

  • 1 shot rum
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Boiling water

Stir all ingredients, adding enough boiling water to fill mug or glass.

Glintvein

The other drink that I like is glintvein which is made with hot wine and spices that you prefer : cinnamon, fennel,  cardamom pods,  cloves,  ginger root,  black pepper corns etc.  It is usually made with red wine but  this month I’ve tried it with white wine  and it was even better!

And one more awesome drink:

Look Stylish With Sex and The City 2. Fashion: 80’s are back!

It seems that only those who can’t read don’t know that 80’s  style is back. I guess that each fashion magazine wrote about that.

Yesterday I was watching Devil Wears Prada with my cat 😉 (again). And reading September Vogue issue.This how I got an idea to write this post.

It seems that every fan of 80’s already got a Balmain jacket. I can see them everywhere. So don’t be like everyone. Need inspiration? Then check out some of these photos from Sex And The Ciry Movie 2. You can see our favorite girls Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda bakc at 80’s.

Beauty Inspiration:1920s

This week when I was sick at home I’ve watched a lot of 1920 videos on youtube.  There are a lot of great videos about fashion, Charleston and 1920 in general. I also loved quite a few makeup tutorials of 20’s.

So here is one video for you 🙂

And what do you think about 1920? What about makeup of that time? I am always excited to see videos of different decades and cultures because I’ve actually studied arts and culture at the university. I would really love to visit a 20’s themed party.
