Dusty Pink, pale pink, call it how you like!


For about two weeks now I have been waking up with a great feeling inside my belly. For those who don’t know I am engaged to an incredible guy and I still feel butterflies when he kisses me but the feeling I am talking about here is a complete different one. It is the one you feel when you found a job you finally like! I used to be quite upset to be working weekends or late nights but I don’t think it is a problem anymore as I am now surrounded by clothes and awesome people who loves clothes! Plus, I have what you can call an obsession with order so being in charge of tidying what I love the most, fashion, I can’t complain! I have done a few late shifts and I loved it, weekend as well are cool as it is incredibly busy you literally have no time to be bored and you better run! Anyway, I enjoy my spare this morning to write a little article on what I have bought in my H&M store where I benefitiate of a discount! With this last argument, I convince myself I have found the perfect job!

Wherever you go on the high street pink is a dominant colour this winter. On knitwears, on sheer shirts/blouses, on tops, on accessories, well pink is the colour to wear! So I decided to go for what we call at H&M the dusty pink and I picked a knitwear jumper composed of 90% Acrylic and 10% mohair. It makes me feel cuddled by like a soft warm wool and this last bought comes right on time with the cold weather! I made it contrast with a very natural white pointed flat collar from a chiffon blouse that I also got in H&M! I love the finished style that this combination gives me, I look like the first of the class which is exactly what I wanted to do so I am satisfied!

I took some pictures last friday after going to a casting to be fitting model for Topshop, apparently my measurements are not close enough to their perfect measurements of a size 6 so that will not be for this time but who knows what the future keeps for me! I did enjoy having little yellow and blue dot stickers all over my body for the day as I did not remember to take them off and noticed them in the shower, haha!

Birthday Girl! Wooopah Woop!

Happy Birthday to Poupidou! Happy Birthday to Poupidou!

So my birthday started last week with my first present from my fiancé: a Hama Star 63 Tripod for my camera! That means no more problems using the bin to take my pictures anymore, I know it sounds terrific and smelly! But it isn’t all, I have been given another piece of information for my special birthday present, and the clue was: “Secret photo-shoot the whole day on the 16th of August”. It left me quite excited wondering so many things! Will it be in London, outside London, in a place I have never been before, in a studio? Mama mia, all I know is that it is not abroad or on the moon because I have asked and the answer was no, I am a bit disappointed but I guess I will get over it! It tormented me a little then I decided to just stop thinking about it so I will be even more surprised today!

So as I promised two days ago, here is my photoshoot full of River Island items!

Let’s start the description of my outfit with my cream lace insert cable knit jumper, that I wear with my gold tone funky double curb chain, my gold tone hexagon hoop earrings and my new lovely beige colour block structured doctors bag, all from River Island!
You might have noticed I am wearing more than what I have listed, so here is the rest, for the bottoms I picked my white skinny jeans from H&M, my pale yellow and light grey heels from Aldo and my nail polish 430 Coralicious from Rimmel London that you can easily find in Boots. Last but not least my new midi-finger ring from Topshop! This one has not left my finger since I bought it!
