Feliz Ano Novo/Happy New Year

With New Years Eve celebrations only days away, my thoughts are turning to what to wear and where to go. The latter has been decided - Embassy Beach Club in Praia da Luz shall have the pleasure of my company on December 31st and with free entry in (while all the others are charging) it gets my manicured thumbs up!
And saying goodbye to 2011 needs a knockout 'gúna' (dress), killer heels, va va voom accessories, and bam! hair and make-up fitting of this joyous occassion....and lips are a must!

Congratulations - we've nearly made 2011. Here's to a fantastic 2012!

And a little bit of fairy dust sprinkled on all your wishes and desires!

Lofty Abode

Who would have 'thunk it' - the last supermodel (can we still use that term?) I would have expected to have a cool loft apartment. But she has, and it is.
If I weren't in my 'regular' apartment (that does actually have a sea-view),  I would be in a loft apartment...yes, it's true. I love everything about them. And thanks in kind to Ms Agynes Deyn's savvy interior mind inviting the press in for a goo, I was reminded like a bolt out of the sky about another of my pet faves (a list that is fast becoming endless)!

 And for the rest of us 'non-model' types......

A Little More About Me

Sofar, my interests, loves and general swoons have been played out in the last x-something posts. But now, a little about what sums me up from time to time......

a) The delicate task of cooking:

I'd sooner have (and actually need) a  bigger closet!
 b) The not-so delicate task of washing ones clothes (includes the ironing too, by the way!)

c) I'd rather you didn't drag dust and dirt through the house so,

d) My relationship with the 'boss' in the house.

e) Saying it with flowers (or perfume) always works!


f) But most of all.............

Victor, Victoria.........

Beauty is skin deep but clearly what is on the outside counts a whole lot too.......I give you fashion androgyny in the form of this little beaut, Andrej Pejic (who by the way, news that I have just read as of today (Dec 15th) has landed a women's lingerie campaign for Dutch department store Hema)............and I'm loving his look!

And from androgyny to....well, ...transgender model Lea T....girls who are boys, and the boys who (look like) girls....I salute you!

Nail It In One!

I'm not the kind of nail tech to follow trends. I believe your favorite nail color can be worn at any time of the year....year after year. A French polish on hands and feet NEVER goes out of fashion, and the darker deeper reds and plum shades look classy whatever the season.
A look at my favorite brands....Essie, Nails Inc, Deborah Lippmann, Butter London, Rimmel London & Leighton Denny for perfectly manicured & polished talons!

Pink Interiors & Misc......

Following on from my color passion, a few interiors with a splash of pink that not even 'him indoors' could scoff at......well the bathroom maybe....but we'd have his & hers anyway!

I am re-modelling my 'office' space accordingly!


And down right cute!
