CHRISTMAS IS NEAR!

And what I love about every Christmas is getting gifts and sending the lovely gifts to loved ones too.

This November, we can start thinking about sending these candles to light up someone’s holiday season. DIPTYQUE Winter Collection 2015 named IMAGINARY FORESTS. They’re limited edition, so better prepare to get them asap.

A series of three 70 gram candles, SAPIN (smell like pine tree-my favorite of all three), LIQUIDAMBAR (warm and sweet) & OLIBAN (woody and oriental) can be light up at once to create mysterious fragrance or by itself. What’s more special about this collection, Diptyque collaborated with Julien Colombier, a French painter known for his painting on black canvas. Check out their press kit below.

Another must buy is the candle holder. So luxurious.

Except the home fragrances, they have five signature scents set too. Of course, not the same scent as the candles.

Last but not least, check out their video!

AS EASY AS 1,2,3,4,5

Bagi saya, bermain dengan makeup mata itu menyenangkan. Area mata adalah satu-satunya bagian pada wajah yang dapat menerima beragam warna, tanpa terlihat aneh. Ulasan beragam warna pun akan mampu mengubah penampilan dalam sekejap.

Berdasarkan pengalaman, banyak teman yang ternyata masih saja clueless akan penempatan serta pengaplikasian warna eyeshadow, terutama jika mereka membeli sebuah palet eyeshadow yang hadir dalam beragam warna. Mereka bingung, warna mana yang harus diusap di kelopak, di ujung luar atau di sudut dalam mata. My favorite for this makeup problem: REVLON PHOTOREADY Primer+Shadow. Jika kita ingin bereksperimen dengan warna-warna yang belum pernah kita coba sebelumnya, palet terbaru dari REVLON ini sangat membantu.

Dalam setiap palet terdapat 5 warna, lengkap dengan petunjuk aplikasi untuk masing-masing warna yang terdapat di balik kemasan. Petunjuknya pun dilengkapi dengan nomer 1 sampai 5, untuk langkah demi langkah pengaplikasian warna. Yes, it’s that easy.

My tips:

–        Aplikasikan sedikit untuk tampilan smoky eyes yang lebih natural di pagi hari & touch up lebih untuk gaya smoky eyes yang dramatis untuk makeup malam hari, karena pigmen warnanya sudah cukup pekat.

       Selalu gunakan primer sebelum mengaplikasikan warna lainnya dalam palet. Primer akan membuat riasan mata bertahan lebih lama dan mengeluarkan warna seperti tampak pada palet seasli-aslinya.

ANOTHER HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED COLLABORATIONS?

Rihanna for River Island.

Scheduled to premiere on February 16 during London Fashion Week this year, the collection will be casual, chic and flirty (that’s what she said in her behind the scene video above). 

If you wonder who sit next to her, is Adam Selman, who designed Riri’s looks for her Loud & 777 tours. He and Riri collaborated on this collection, which will hit stores in the UK on March 5, 2013. 

YES, A WOMAN CAN HAVE IT ALL …

Head to toe Chanel, a gorgeous husband and a cute kid. 

At least, according to Karl Lagerfeld. Chanel’s Spring 2013 campaign video (directed by Karl himself), entitled “Public Garden” was shot in black and white a la silent movie. Set in Musée Rodin in Paris, France, Lindsey Wixson starred with the ever handsome Brad Kroening as someone else’s husband. The cute kid, is Karl’s godson, Hudson Kroening, wearing a matching Choupette sweatshirt and tee. Oooohhhh…..

SPRING FLING

Coming soon in March 2013, Conscious Collection by H&M. Here’s to fashion for better tomorrow.

Part of H&M ongoing commitment to a more sustainable fashion future, this collection are made from Conscious material such as organic cotton (FYI, H&M is no 1 user of organic cotton worldwide), recycled polyester and Tencel.

Vanessa Paradis (actress, singer and ehm Johnny Depp’s ex) looked angelic as the face for this campaign. I love the warm lighting and the natural scenery sets for the video. The full Conscious Collection (including men, kids and babies), will be available in H&M stores worldwide and online from March 25, 2013. 

O ROMEO, ROMEO! WHEREFORE ART THOU ROMEO?

Please welcome the new young cast of Burberry family, hand-picked by Christopher Bailey himself …. Romeo Beckham.

Famous last name (thanks to Dad, David) … checked!
Dad’s similar hair cut … checked!
