Sunny Sunday

I love Sunday mornings. The moment I wake up I feel like time is standing still. And for me, it’s the only day that it is since Saturdays are usually filled with errands and cleaning and organizing and planning and… well, you get the idea. Last Sunday was so wonderful. Not only did I wake up to the sun beaming through the windows (a wonderful way for Mrs. Sunshine to welcome me to the day), but the weather was an absolutely beautiful 23 degrees. I started the day with a casually late brunch with my friend Ziggy, whom I haven’t seen in what feels like ages (feta omelet and Iranian tea!), and continued the day with our usual ritual of browsing shops on the Plateau. I did a great job with my self-control, but did treat myself with a few goodies!

Sunday Purchases - MAC Cosmetics AldoIt’s amazing the power that a lipstick can have. A simple swipe of the perfect shade can make you feel like a new person. This is the way this super simple shade makes me feel. I walked into the MAC store, told the makeup artist I was looking for the perfect pink ( a sentiment she seemed to share), and like magic, she produced Brave, also know as the perfect pink (for me).

I also picked up Teddy eyeliner, a beautiful shimmery bronze shadow I have been obsessed with ever since I saw a friend as work wearing it.

Last but not least, a beautiful long necklace from Aldo, embellished with three white horns and two white feathers. The perfect final touche to pretty much any outfit.

How was your Sunday?

Simple Things!

With summer finally making an appearance, I can’t help but ditch the blacks and greys I’ve been donning the past 6 months and surround myself with bold colours. There’s just something about these bright hues that makes me smile and bring me so much joy!

How are you welcoming summer?
