favorites from Olivia Palermo

February 28, 2013

We all know that heels are chic, feminine and sexy. They are women's power to a perfect look. And like all women I love them too, but ...I'm also in love with ballet flats. And, wearing them the right way with the right pieces can be also chic, feminine and sexy. The person in my opinion who always does it even more than right is definitely Olivia Palermo. Here are my favorite picks of her style with flats...

...and favorites with heels....

keep it perfect- coffee table decor

February 27, 2013

fresh peonies // candle // tray // Harper's Bazaar book // Marc Jacobs book // Journal // pen

Having a one year old at home, has forced me to keep my coffee table empty...that means no flowers, no table runner, no remotes, literally nothing. While he is enjoying his childhood curiosity by touching and moving everything, I've decided to wait patiently till the time comes to finally decorate my coffee table....with a decorative tray, flowers, coffee table books and a candle. I love the look of all these things together, since they make the coffee table look tidy and very stylish.

spring look- denim shirt & pop of red

February 26, 2013

first look: shirt // white jeans // flats // bag // bracelet // watch
second look: shirt // black jeans // heels // bag // watch

I'm not a big fan of an all denim look, but pairing a denim shirt with white or black jeans is a totally different story and my latest must- have look for spring. So, here are my two sets of ideas with two different denim shirts where all the items can be mixed and matched to get a perfect spring outfit.

appetizer delight

February 24, 2013

Whether you have a party or you crave something, or maybe you just want a tasty snack, it's good to have 
 quick recipes that satisfy your taste. These three easy and quick to make appetizers are great way to upgrade a party or evening 
(such as Oscar night) and will definitely hit the spot. They look fancy and taste delicious.

egg paste recipe
4 hard boiled eggs 
1/2 cup shredded cheese ( your choice)
2 tablespoons of  mayonnaise
salt & pepper
Shred eggs finely and mix together with cheese and mayo. Add salt & pepper to your taste.

my pick this week- high heel sandals

February 21, 2013

  steal: Zara // TRF Zara // Zara

I'm definitely a shoe obsessed person...and since spring is not far away, shoe fashion trends are seen everywhere. One of my favorites is high heel sandals in different colors, with different kind of strapping. What I love about these heels, is how light they look on a foot, and fact that they go with every style. They can be worn  casually with jeans, shorts or paired with dresses to get more of a night out look. Personally, I love the emerald strappy high heel sandals and nude ankle ring  ones.

think diet coke - think Marc Jacobs

February 19, 2013

I wouldn't be so excited about diet coke cans if the creative director was someone other than Marc Jacobs. Since, I have a crush on him, well maybe not him specifically but for his bags and accessories, I'm thrilled. 
The partnership is a celebration of Coke's 30th anniversary campaign "Sparkling Together for 30 years". The design of the cans is inspired by different fashion decades  from the 80's, 90's and 2000's. 
The 80's - bowtie and tuxedo, 90's- bustier dress, stiletto heels and hat, 00's- modern chic, monochromatic stripes put together with red dots. ( WWD )
The Diet Coke cans designed by Marc Jacobs will be sold in different countries in Europe, but still I hope to get them all three. :)

beauty lust

February 18, 2013

It's good that we don't have to pay to wish. So, speaking of wishing there is a few things that I lust to have on my shelve. 
My first lust and the most reachable is Clarins Tint Daily Shield which would be great option instead of foundation during the summer time. Plus it has SPF 40, so no sunscreen is necessary.
My second lust is Clarisonic Cleansing System which has been on my wish list for a while. And I've heard that it really helps to improve face skin condition, so I want it even more. 
When it comes to my third, Guerlain Meteorites Perles du Paradis it reminds me of when my mom used it when I was a teenager, and it was something that I've always wanted and tried when she didn't see:). It's my childhood sentiment and touch of luxury.
Prada Candy Eau de Perfum is my last lust and must have fragrance. Sweet and warm. Great for cooler season.
What is your beauty lust? :)

lime & honey fruit salad delight

February 18, 2013

 With the flu season upon us, we all need a good shot of vitamins, and since fruit is one of the best way to obtain them, a simple fruit salad is a good choice. It's even better to strengthen its power by mixing lime juice with honey which provides great source of antioxidants that help our body to fight infections. Plus they make fruit taste even sweeter.

strawberries, blueberries, grapes ( but you can use whatever fruit you prefer )
3 tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of lime juice

Bon Appetit!

things I adore

February 15, 2013

Since, I was a little too late for all the shopping spree fun with Prabal at Target, I didn't have a chance to see the entire collection besides the few things that were left. And what was left, wasn't anything I really wanted, so I was a little disappointed. Nevertheless, I didn't end up empty handed, and I splurged on these really comfortable heels, and blouse that I've never thought about earlier. The blouse definitely looks better on someone than on a hanger to my surprise.
Have a great weekend!

my pick this week- harem pants

February 14, 2013

When it comes to harem pants, they can be tricky to wear. So, it's important to find a pair that fits our figure best; especially if you who have a curvy figure (unfortunately, harem pants like to add some weight:)). 
 So, they cannot be too baggy, the fabric should be good quality and what's the most important is to feel comfortable wearing them. To achieve a more casual look, pair them with flats and simple tank top or heels and a silk blouse to get more of a chic style. My suggestion is to keep the look simple as much as possible with just a touch of jewelry.
