Olivia Palermo in Charlotte Olympia


Olivia Palermo was recently spotted in NY with a "man-inspired look": a black suit, white shirt and a jewelery brooch that stopped the black tie. The accessories (as usual) were the key items of the look, leopard print pumps and an amazing plexiglass clutch both from amazing designer Charlotte Olympia.


Have a wonderful week-end!

7 things

After 12 days of absence, here I am and I’ve chosen these 7 things that are in my mind this week ..
I decided to begin with a pic of New York. Does it need any words?

Since I was a kid I’ve always liked sparkly. It’s shiny and it makes me smile and when I grew up I found out that when sparkly is combined with shoes I just cannot resist! :D This are the shoes I’m thinking about right now! Should I or should I not?

This Louis Vuitton bag is TDF. The bag is attached by a small chain to a cuff covered in diamonds that must be worn as a bracelet. Isn’t the idea so nice and new? I’m so in love with it, but I guess it will have to wait..did I mention that is made in crocodile and it has diamonds????? Price is upon request…

This shade of pink for a Birkin reminds me of a Barbie, yet is so girlish that I decided it will be a must have for me. Not a season must have but a life must have ;)

A gold watch is what I need right now.. Gold is on trend more than ever!

Frozen yoghurt – If well done, this can be as satisfactory as a piece of chocolate during colder times and yet so much lighter in calories! I’ve been trying lot of different tastes and as soon as I figure out which I like the most I’ll share the recipe with all of you!!

And how could I not post my all-time spring favourite drink? A sangria is perfect for those warmer nights spent with friends in the back yard.

Beauty tips

Good morning to you all! TGIF!!!! Let the week-end begin ;)

This past week has been kind of intense, I will tell you all the new projects as soon as they get more concrete. But as a typical Friday post, let’s start with today’s beauty routine in terms of make up. I’ve never been a fan of wearing too much make up, or actually I had a phase when I was like 15 where I would wear eye shadows, eyeliner, glossy, foundation.. but thanks god those days are gone! I really like a natural make up, the one that “is there but it doesn’t look like”, that gives a feminine glow without hiding every woman’s beauty!
So, even though I’m no expert at all, here is a list of the few things I use for my everyday make up:
I start with this powder, Soleil Tan de Chanel, it magically hides all the imperfections without making my skin feel heavy. Totally recommend it!
After I apply a black pencil on the bottom of my eye, and the best I’ve found so far is “le crayon khol” again from Chanel.
Last, but not least, I use my new discovery: Maybelline One by One. After having asked millions of people, having tried millions of mascara I must say that Maybelline just got it right. It’s very easy to apply I can guarantee you that the result it’s just amazing!
When I want to feel different, a bit more particular or a bit more sexy I just use these 2 lipsticks:
The first one is from Chanel while the fuxia is from Dior..no need for any other colour! :)
What do you use as an every day make up? Send me your comments or your tips;)

A scent is worth a thousand words

It was 1921 when Mademoiselle Coco Chanel invented a scent that it will later become what is now known as “the perfume”. Not any perfume, but the one chose by her in person, a mix of jasmine and ylang ylang made real by chemist Ernest Beaux. Chanel N°5: a simple name and bottle that contains Coco’s super exquisite fragrance.

During the 50’s Marilyn Monroe was the testimonial that helped to create the magic that surrounds this perfume, and many years after and many testimonials after, N°5 has left a permanent mark in the sector and it’s still the best selling fragrance.

For this, and many other reasons, in 2007 I chose this perfume and ever since I have never abandoned it. It just makes me feel more feminine and as Marilyn once said, "I go to bed wearing only two drops of Chanel N°5"..
What else needs to be said?
We are now celebrating 90 years of this magic fragrance..Thank you Coco and happy birthday N°5!
Love,
CB

small things can make you smile!

What I wish I had in my shoecloset right now? These beauties, so I could wear them with the many many outfits that are in my head right now!

The new Prada collection is to die for,still haven't decided if I like better Prada or Miu Miu...do I really have to choose? :D
Which do you prefer?
Love,
