Something very exciting happened to me the other day. I had a very intriguing e-mail with a secretive message. I am invited as VIP (wow I know!) to the Centre of Contemporary Arts in Glasgow to attend a secret meeting with some of the producers and cast of Hollyoaks. Thank you Lime Productions and Democracy PR! And that is all I can say! You can see the invitation I have been given below. After this my lips are sealed :-)
There is something about statues…Although cold and motionless, they attract us towards them, making us want to be close to them, part of their story. I have found that during my travels I have so much been attracted to their call. Interestingly, I have a small collection of photos to remind me of my brief encounters with them. A meeting where the present meets the past. And time stops for a few seconds…
You know what happens when you decide on a nice day (whatever this means in Glasgow!) to go and meet a friend for coffee in the city centre! Yes…that’s right! You end up getting carried away by the shop windows, the buzz and the atmosphere, and you….shop…till you drop (or anyway as much as your pocket allows you on the day ;-) )
We went for a cream tea at Fifi and Ally’s (best scone I have ever had!) and then for the necessary visit to the House of Fraser to check out new perfumes and make up. I would like to thank Martin and Danielle at Dior’s who were very helpful. On the day I bought the following:
Hemp hand protector, Body Shop (really nice for my terribly dry hands) Eye Concealer 003, Body Shop (brights up fabulously my dark circles) Honey & Oat Face Mask, Body Shop (I love the smell and the feeling of calmness after a nice face mask)
And my super new favourites:
Dior Skin Forever Foundation (perfect cover but is not heavy on my skin, something I hate, really lovely texture that lasts well…forever!)
Dior Addict Lipstick No. 578 (I trully madly deaply fell in love with this one, is an absolutely beautiful colour)
I know I do not look quite as good as Natalie Portman or Kate Moss, but I thought you would like to see a photo of what the make up looks like on someone.
A great book about perfumes is “The perfume” by Patrick Süskind which is also a famous film (2001). Apparently although the novel was very popular and was considered for a movie for years, it was too difficult to film the descriptions of the smells described in the book. In my opinion, a book is always better than its movie as the human brain has unsurcumpable abilities of imagination that could not easily be captured in a film. This is the film trailer.
I have been having some time in the shops this week here in Glasgow trying out perfumes in the search of my new favourite for the new year coming. I have never been able to stop buying different perfumes rather than stick to one signature perfume for myself. And this is I think because I love perfumes so much. The one perfume I used to think completely as the ONE was called HER by Roberto Cavalli but for some unknown reason to myself the company decided to discontinue it, leaving me perfume-less again. So ever since I have been trying different perfumes in the search of the next ONE.
These are three of my most favourite perfumes to date Lovely, Flower by Kenzo and Un Jardin Après La Mousson by Hermès. I also like Un Jardin sur Le Nil and Un Jardin sur le Toit by Hermès, Her by Narciso Rodriguez, and very recently I am keen to own Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum.
I think it is the new ONE!!!
Check out the new advert…
So what do you think? Which one is your favourite perfume?
Isn’t this girl something else? One of the most talented fashion designers I have come across comes from Greece. Her name Mary Katrantzou. She seems a very nice, well-spoken and educated girl with tons of talent and inspiration. Her clothes I cannot stop looking at. Her prints are a true inspirations and oh how I would love to wear one of her dresses.
Below a video of my favourite “Mary Katrantzou” collection, SS 11. I love the dresses with the long back tail.
