Kiss it sweet…


‘Take a snap of the moment and hide it…you never know when you will need it.’

 

Today’s post its all about comparison but also about choice…the best sweet choice.

As I add more to my Sweet Lips Chronicles, I am realising that it’s about so much more than just a new colour or a new brand of make-up; I am slowly discovering how visual everything is and how much I love photography.

So, my lovely reader…if this is the first time you have stopped here, welcome and thank you for giving me the chance to share this with you 🙂

Optical illusion 

Revlon 715 Arabica… in case you were wondering.

This range of lipsticks from Revlon its not the most exciting that I have in my collection but its very practical.

If you are the person who puts a lot of weight on functionality and doesn’t necessarily have a lot of time to compare and test, this range is perfect.

The shades are soft but they do make a statement; they are easy to use for those crazy mornings when you do not even have time to look in the mirror.

Secret garden

Revlon 770 Twilight

The collection of shades is a small one but you do have pretty much everything you need, your red, purple, brown and nude…

The texture is very smooth and it does hydrate for a long period throughout the day…the catch is that you will have to apply it a few times.

My favourite

Revlon 705 Dawn

This is the shade I go to… simple but effective for those times I need to trust a lipstick as everything else around me is moving with the speed of light.

As much as we want to be bold all the time, being practical is a blessing and you definitely need a product that you can trust.

So if you have not yet tried it and it looks tempting…go for it!

More than just a shade…


It has been a while since I have written or blogged about anything…

I think sometimes you just need some time off or life takes over and you don’t even realise how long it has been since you’ve done something you love…

But…let’s not talk about the past; let’s take a peak into the future or even truly look at the present!

My Sweet Lips Chronicle was always meant to be a little piece of what I think its beautiful and it deserves to be shared with those of you who might feel the same.

A lipstick might have been just a lipstick 30 years ago, but its not just that anymore.

Most of us use it to make a statement, to feel empowered and bold…but let’s not forget that sometimes we just use it because it makes us experience another side of us!

Colour is Art

 

I absolutely love this Bourjois lipstick (Rouge Edition no.41 Pink Catwalk)…and not just because it looks amazing in pictures 🙂

On lips it looks like a soft but bold pink, which is always attractive…

If you have never tried a pure pink lipstick because you think its not for you but your hidden thoughts always circle around the possibility, this Bourjois colour could be your best first choice.

Dark and Beautiful…

You can always choose Revlon Black Cherry if you are daring and want something different.

There was a time when we only used dark colours as part of evening make-up…but we are living interesting times and as the saying goes ‘rules are meant to be broken‘ … if its for sweet lips 🙂

Photography is art…make-up is a beautiful indulgence that could easily become an artistic tool of self expression.

At least…that is exactly what it has turned out to be for me!

See you soon…

Red Portrait


There is no doubt that if you follow my blog, you know what is my favourite colour and also that I love to play with the way I display it 🙂

For that reason, this post is somehow closer to my soul…

This week, let’s take a cardinal journey and paint a red portrait…

I have tried and tested many shades of red…to my surprise, there are some that look better than others…and I only mean this when it comes to lipstick 🙂

Between the well-known brands like, Avon, Maybelline, Rimmel, Revlon, Max Factor…I found many that do the job, but not all would be The One.

You have probably noticed by now that my short chronicles are not always brand reviews…I like to play a bit with different products, find the hidden art that they could be, when placed in a contradictory scene.

My Fashion ‘Must’


Hello World:)

Welcome back to my Fashion Guide…

I’ve been thinking for a while…what’s new and I must have it!?

To be honest…not much…:)

…what about…what’s already mine and I’m in love with it?!

IMG_1403-1

Well…here is My Fashion ‘must’ for 2016!

The Little Red Dress 

You can never go wrong with something new…something red:) On it’s own it can be a beautiful going out piece but we the right accessories…you can take it out for a walk as day wear…even sporty look!

Silver Sport Shoes

To be completely honest, it never crossed my mind to wear silver with red…but it works. I believe it comes down to the “think it through” mix and match rule: Try it, Wear It, Love It! I’ve always loved the odd combination of elegant and sporty…perfect casual with a touch of your own personality:)

The Black Hat

Comes and goes…but it’s somehow always here! Last years accessory is this years must have:) Take your style a bit further and give it a bit of mystery…

IMG_1409-1

The Elegant Bow Tie

It’s not just for men:) Is there anything left in Fashion that only women or men wear? Nothing really comes to mind…it might be because it’s 10pm and I am a bit sleepy:)

To be fair, I’ve always loved bow ties…yes it makes a man look sexy, but it also gives a woman a beautifully powerful look!

IMG_1407-1

The Beats

This one it’s a personal choice…and not just because it’s red 🙂

Have a bit of music in your life; everything feels and looks different with the sound of your favourite beat!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks Fashion Guide…:)

Hello, December!


Welcome back to my Fashion Guide…

It’s been a while…

Life has been so busy in the past few months that I haven’t had the chance to write as much as I would love to…

I’ve missed it…

This week I’ve decided to write about one of the best trends this winter

The Statement Ankle Boot

IMG_1130-1
The Ankle Boot

Everywhere we look this winter, it’s all about ankle boots…to be honest, this one piece it’s here to stay and it’s somehow becoming a classic:)

The black suede will always be my favourite!

…flat or heels, choose the ones that work for you.

Personally, I go for block heels because it can be matched with jeans for a more relaxed look or with a dress/skirt for a going out style.

But if that’s not your trend, you can always go for buckle-boots, riding style…no matter what the fashion tells you, choose the piece that works for you.

Winter cosy

…and never forget to accessories:)

I have three reasons why I love winter time:

  • New Boots
  • A beautiful Coat
  • Warm and cosy accessories

A well coordinated accessory can do wonders for your look…might that be mittens, a hat or your knitted long scarf!

So…what will be your Winter Cosy?

 

Your Fashion Girl,

Julia

‘The Pencil Is Red’


Welcome back to your Fashion Guide…always a little bit closer to your own catwalk 🙂

This week I am bringing you the beautiful…stylish and eternally alluring pencil skirt!

Pencil skirt

I’ve always loved a high rise, knee length pencil skirt…

It is one of the most practical choices I’ve ever made!

Fresh and stylish options for a pencil skirt:

  • High rise fits better every body shape and it will bring out your beautiful curves
  • Always knee length
  • Wear it with a dress shirt if you want a formal or semi-formal look
  • A blouse will be perfect for a casual or evening outfit
  • Print is one of the stars this year, so floral or multiple colour can be a great choice
  • For a late summer gaze, wear it with simple/plain colour top (sleeveless or not)

Pencil black and white Red pencil

As much as I love black I always come back to my first love…beautiful red!

The pencil skirt is an all year round piece in your wardrobe…a balanced colour combination will build you an outfit for every occasion.

If you choose the classic road…put it together with neutral colours, autumn shades.

For the best style and look, pair it up with heels…and as we are at the beginning of the cold season…a perfect heeled ankle boot will create the perfect look!

Would love to know your pencil style?!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s shopping trip!
