This weekend keep it clean and have a great one.
At the start of each new season I like to collect my favorite images so I can edit my wardrobe, focus on a fall style and purchase the items that will work with everything. I am going for a pale grey and blush pallet this fall. Also in the mix some hair ideas but I might just stick with wild long and blonde... again. Like with new beauty products I have a belief that if it's not broken don't fix it.
This week, let's entertain. Food styling and attention to the lighting makes everything much more grand and sumptuous. For drinks first serve champagne cocktails with ice blocks infused with berries or mint. Next, create easy and elegant first course summer dishes such as fresh salads served on your silver ware, crystal and Hermes plates. Then for the best and simplest main course order pizza from The Upper Crust. You can't beat it for style, lightness and taste perfection. It's all in the way you present it that matters.
Ok let's shop the new season this week.... while your size is still there. I want the opposite of my summer suitcases filled with light white dresses. Now I am ready for opulent rich fall colours and butter soft leather matched with dark lace and barely there silks. Complete with bare legs and a blanket throw over and your done.
You can tan and still be safe. It's all about moderation and knowing the right numbers. Firstly make sure you use SPF 50 on your face to avoid unwanted premature aging, and don't compromise on reapplying 3 times a day while in the sun. Your white face can be bronzed with make up, don't forget wrinkles caused by harsh exposure won't wash away. You can get burnt even in cloudy weather, so don't think that because it's not glaring that you can't do damage. Short bursts. Exposing yourself to the sun for 15 minutes triggers Vitamin D without burning your skin. Use the D Minder phone app as a guide to stop reaching burning point. Watch out for any changes in any of your moles of skin areas that have become irregular. If having any lazar treatments done including hair removal make sure you don't expose that area to sun, it can cause irreparable scaring of the regenerating skin tissue.
For my readers in Istanbul here are some images for your summer escape, enjoy the last of your Bayram holidays everyone and thanks for following!
University of Westminster graduate Valeska Jasso Collado was inspired by the color, finish and form of Memphis furniture to create this avant-garde collection of wearable structures. Using foam as the base, the designer experimented with latex coatings to create a modern glossy, liquid-look. The combined sheets of material were then sliced and folded into wearable, abstract surfaces that merge the 1980s design group’s iconic pastel color palette and fresh peek-a-boo brights. Simple steel screws and washers link the pieces together, to create exaggerated A-line skirts, framing circular fans around the upper body and voluminous pants with pockets.
