French plait & Dutch plait

The time of the year has come in which we have to coexist with climatic factors 🙆🏻

I have always liked long hair for the versatility of having varying hairstyles. Although it is also true that for my day to day hairtyle I prefer to just have loose hair, and for training in the Dojo, I simply tie it up.
Somedays even the taurine routine must have its exception. Today is that day! A typical autumn day, gray and windy in good old London.

I like to enjoy the wind when I’m out and, to avoid turning it into my enemy, my best option has always been a plait. Although there are several types to choose from, I tend to go for the basic French or inverted French plait (also called Dutch plait). The same ones that all mothers have done to us a thousand times to go to school or to a party. Simple, fast and effective!

Perfumes

“Can a perfume change your life?” 👩🏻‍🔬

Interesting question, I do not know if a perfume can change someone’s life but it definitely can represent someone. There are fragrances that I associate directly with specific people, even though I haven’t seen them in a long time. A fragrance, which doesn’t have to be a perfume, it can be simply the aroma of a garden, a library, can be a direct connection to a bunch of memories or moments.

Perfumes, I am a natural collector of them, I love that combination of fragrance and art in their bottle and presentation. Although I alternate within my collection, for years (and I believe for the rest of my life) my fragrance, my representative, has been, is, and will be “Very Irresistible” by Givenchy.

Essentials

“Les lèvres maquillées” 💋💄

Among the essentials of any woman, red lipstick should never be missing, but use it wisely! If you want to accent your lips, then do not overdo the make-up in your eyes. The same goes for the other way around.
Black jeans, nails with a ‘berries and cream’ color, and a monochromatic blouse with polka dots and flare sleeves, a simple garment that enhances the rest.

This is my outfit for this week.

Fashion nails

Funny colours and names, choose one! 💅🏻

The names of beauty products are very nice, aren’t they? I am quite enjoy saying things like “Today I will paint my nails with ‘queen of tarts’, or perhaps with ‘pillow talk’, ‘rose libertine’, ‘fit for a princess’ or even ‘lose your lingerie’. Hilarious!And don’t get even get me started with names for lipsticks. Anyway, today I have chosen ‘peachella’ to match a blouse with broderie anglaise.
“Peach-like” fragrances and colours are among my essentials of this summer.

 

Essentials

I smell like a sweet peach! 🍑

 

There is a new accessory among the essentials of my bag!.
A “Fruity Body Mist”, absolutely refreshing during a hot day and considerably inspiring, at least for me that through smell I can awaken my creative sense.
