Rad Reviews: YSL Marrakesh Sunset Palette

The Yves Saint Laurent Marrakesh Sunset Palette was released as part of the Summer 2013 collection.

Rad Beauty: Miles Aldridge beauty editorial inspired MOTD

I’m a huge fan of Miles Aldridge’s work which is incredibly inspiring and mesmerising. The concepts, a little otherwordly are very creative almost like dreams and alter egos.

With Summer almost over, embrace autumn hues with these gorgeous 7 For all Mankind jeans. I’d wear it with this Lightweight crepe wrap-effect blouse by DAY Birger et Mikkelsen and Kenzo Tiger necklace (see my earlier post).

September = Experimentation

September always reminds me of the dreaded “back to school” feeling even though I left school over a decade ago. It’s strange how these feelings have stayed with me throughout the years, worrying about what September will bring.
