My Monday Mission............

Is to Winter wardrobe (Summer is so much easier), and my shoe collection. Reading that back, using the word collection makes what I have sound very doesn't rival Tamara Mellon's or Kimora Lee Simmons', but I do have a lot of shoes/boots/flipflops (that item doesn't really count) and Nike runners! Where do I house them? The team is split between lower ground storage room affectionately called 'the lock-up', and first floor corner of the hallway, which doesn't have an affectionate name, except from time to time I glance in it's general direction and frown the words 'you deserve better than this!'

So, and this may well be a mission impossible, it's time to sort (leaving some things in 'the lock-up', things I don't wear that often or even at all), arrange, and stow away! My dreams are below, the reality I fear will be far less extravagent.

The ultimate wardrobe/closet, and if it's good enough for Miss Carrie Bradshaw......

Runway Heaven

As I prepare for tomorrow, my thoughts turn to what to wear. The Algarve is not known as the power-dressing capital of the world, nor are you likely to see the latest runway collections shimmy-shamming down the avenidas!
But one must not let standards slip...I prefer to throw caution to the wind and dress like the world is my stage or at the very least my catwalk!

Some of my favorite (pant and skirt) looks: (not all work attire I might add)

Red All Over...............

Just in time and to celebrate our day of St Valentines - one of my make-up favorites have chosen to inform me by email that they have 'A shade of red for every heart'...Hooray! And that they do.....

For my darker complexion I am simply head over heels in love with Hang-Up

But d'you know what? I reckon the other shades would suit too...........................................

Lipstick Jungle

  • For the perfect pout: gently exfoliate for a smooth foundation
  • Apply lip balm and line for that perfect shape

  • Select favorite color
  •  And......pout it out!

I think I'm ready for my close up Mr de Mille!

Food Glorious Food

So back from Palma, Mallorca and while it was a trip not only filled with lovely food, it did start and end with some Michelin star dining.
First up, the ABC Mallorca networking lunch at the St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort, Es Fum Restaurant - thank you chef Thomas Kahl, who if my ears didn't deceive me, has just been given his 2nd star.

La Isla Bonita

In T minus 48hrs I shall be landing in the beautiful island of Mallorca (Majorca). My soon to be 4th visit.  However this time it will be work related...currency exchange work related that is. But as the old saying goes: all work and no play, makes (in this case) me, a dull girl!

So once (Katy) and I have dropped our Premier FX bags at the hotel, it is full steam ahead. Map of island - check! Local newspapers (and magazines...I'm thinking January Vogue there any other?) - check! Within walking distance coffee bars - check! And on a serious note - local business on the Paseo Maritimo needing our currency exchange services - check!!

And while we tear around the island going from one social gathering to the next, my mind cannot help but wonder onto fashion influences...when in Rome eh! Not quite the attire that I shall be adopting while sashshaying along the avenida...but a girl can dream!
