Mirror mirror tell me who...

... is the most beautiful girl in the world? Hello, anonymous visitor on my poor left-alone English blog but you know same old song I have been crazingly busy over the past months it explains this awesome no man's land :p. But I went home tonight feeling blue and willing to write to you my own version of a web 2.0 tale and sadly not the fairy kind of tale. I am a huge fan of beauty blogs (I indeed own an other one written in French because it is way easier for me :) ) and to me, English ones are the best. They taste a lil exotic to me but still understandable which is the main objective in the end ^^. So here it goes, my tonight tale will deal with one of my favorite blog and its owner the princess T. (no Snow White for tonight).

Once upon a time, far far away from where I currently am, was born the gorgeous princess T. She had everything : beauty, brain, money and perhaps the nicest soul on Earth but for some crazy people all these were sins. Too perfect, too smooth in their way too good to be true. 
But our gorgeous princess did not know how much jealousy can torn apart souls so she decided to start blogging a couple of years ago for fun perharps and, of course, ended up taking down everything because of these vilains a few days ago. These evil-minded ones did not seem to understand how it was possible that such a perfect creature with her supposed pink and glittery life could be touched by someone's else destiny. For them, she might be stupid or just vain to keep talking about makeup after what happened to someone she was supposed to love! 

After hearing that, the only thing that comes to my mind is that human beings are definitely not the ultimate stage of evolution. At least I hope not! How can people safely hidden behind their computer screen be so mean and gratuitously nasty to someone else they hardly know. Who know what her seemingly perfect life really is and if it is in the end why do not be delighted with it instead? Maybe make up and beauty ramblings helped her dealing with her feelings and her distress. 

I can not stand people acting like that especially with someone like princess T. who gave away true pieces of herself talking and writing down about how sensitive and emotional she is. What I hope now is that it is just a break, a lil goodbye and not an adieu. I will really miss her freshness and the good vibes that spread from a blog post. 

Take care princess T. and hope to see you aroud really soon. 

See ya :)

Long time no see...

I know I have not posted anything here for a very long time but guess what I have been busy yeah I know easy one... But that is so true :) 
My life has gone from bad to good, then worst and finally over crazy good at the end of November. You may know that I had a short fixed term contract and that it was my first real job experience despite my advanced age. I am that exact kind of girl who did long studies believing it will bring her a dreamt job and it did quite well in the end. But trust me I was not so sure of my choice about a year ago when I was still unemployed. 

So here I am now at the beginning of December with a brand new long term job contract which allow me to plan things for my future like buying a flat, going on vacations far away and so on :)). But enough ramblings about my newborn life ^^ onto makeup and skincare.

Why do I start posting here again? Because I am also the kind of girls who take big (unbearable) resolutions each time she experiences a life change and I want to share some of my new "fully grown up" bites of life with you, my fellow readers who may come back here seeing a new post :p. That being said, signing my new contract may have been the worst week in my credit card's life. I indulge myself with so many treats I am nearly ashamed of myself (nearly). So be prepared to see all what I buy. They will be a Zuneta order, a Mario Badescu haul, some Stila and a very strange soap, some other skincare (nothing I am really used to so be prepared for review). I know I won't post on a daily basis here but I will try to do it weekly (finger cross I will try not to break this promise). So please stay tuned there will be one next week on Zuneta (I get it today and so far I am impressed with what I got)

See ya :)  

PS: I think I will do a summary of my week posts (the ones of my French blog) with the most important pieces of information (if there are some after all it is just beauty).

My dreamt dress

Hello there! No I am not dead but my current work keeps me kind of busy so no time for regular updates on my English blog :s. They will be ten times more mistakes (if it was possible...) in this post than in the previous ones as I lack some practise in English but please bare with me.
You may already know that I live in Paris in a really wealthy district so they are a lot of cloth designer shops around my place. And this afternoon, sneaking around for some interesting sales (yeah it is summer sale time here), I discovered a brand new shop from a Spanish designer I have never heard about : Sonia Peña. I am totally out when it comes to fashion and clothes in general, maybe she is famous but it is not a big deal for me. 

Anyway, the shop was fully packed with amazing cocktail and nightime dresses and as wedding season is up for me I thought why not have a closest look. Yeah I am aging (sigh!) and all my closest friends are getting married this summer or next one.
I have to say the dresses are fantastic! I was a bit scared to look like a big fat cow trying to fit in something too skiny for her but it ends up looking OK I think (I hope?). 
The sale assistant who took care of me insisted that I tried a "mermaid" dress as I like to call them (a sheath dress I think is the real name) because it would emphasize my best curves and hide the "barely there" ones (so to say my big booty and my missing boobs). 

The fabric is really heavy (which means high quality for me), the design quality is stunning and the cut is perfect. They were hundreds of underlayers in there but the outcome was impressive. Not because I was in there but because it makes me look right, well-shaped and over-glamourous :).
Here is the pic of the one I tried even if mine was fuschia without the fluffy belt (as I stay away from black for wedding)

So what you think? Wearable for a classy wedding or not? It is pretty pricey yeah (600€ I think) but the quality is there! Maybe it will be a lil cheaper soon with the sales? I have to check with a guy friend what he thinks about me wearing this (men are rude but good advisors for wedding :) )

See ya :)

PS: I am not raving about the way I look, trust me there is absolutely nothing to rave about but if you want to give yourself a special treat with an amazing dress you'd better have a look to this Spanish designer :p
