Hey gorgeous ladies, are you ready for Valentines?
I know we all love to plan ahead and I’m sure most of you already picked your perfect V-day dress. Dress it up or dress it down, here are some tips to glamourized your overall look:
1.) HAIR is numero uno. I have a long straight hair and I usually leave it as it is or I love to style it with big soft curls. However this time, I thought of suggesting the following hairstyles to emphasize your dress. As seen on top fashion magazines and runways, I’ve put together these looks and you can choose between -
a.) a sleek bun
b.) or a fuss-free pony tail (i love Alexa’s):
2.) Lips are for K-I-S-S-I-N-G. Highlight those kissable lips with a nude or red lipstick depending on the colour of your outfit. Red is hot, nude is sexy.
a.) For nude lips like Ruffa, try MAC Prolong Lipcream Light yellow-pink (€21) or Lancôme Colour Design Pale Lip (€29.25).
b.) For red vivid lips like Marion, you can try MAC Prolong Lipcream True Red (€21) or Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge (€29.25).
3.) Marilyn Monroe quoted, give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world. Do you want to conquer it with a golden heart or with golden spikes?
a.) If you’re skint go for the Melissa-Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Gold Heart. I love its signature bubble gum scent (€149-€170 depending on the stockist, I bought mine at Galleries LaFayatte in Paris):
b.) Or go mint and go for the red soles! Christian Louboutin Higness Pot Pourri Strass (€ 2 895,00):
4.) Pink is another colour of love and surely, you’ll fall in love with these pink shower gels (use it before or even after your date):
a.) Nivea Water lily and Oil Gel Douche (if you’re skint, it’s only €2.44, available in local supermarkets); or
b.) Molton Brown’s Heavenly Gingerlily Moisture Bath & Shower (go mint for £18/€22; for stockist in France, please click here. A shop near Escada in Park Palace, Monaco also sells Molton Brown).
5.) Victoria Secret launched its intimate limited edition lingerie picks from Very Sexy Collections for Valentines few days ago (please click here). But since VS is not yet available in France (oh please let me know if they’ve opened a boutique) plus it will take few delivery days with taxes and maybe you are still working on those love handles given by Father Christmas, like me! (lol), you can complete your V-day in confidence and comfort with a super silky red bedroom robe -
a.) If you are skint, you can get Mamba by Etam (€29.90); or
b.) Go mint with Agent Provocateur’s Novah Kimono (€795).
Have fun ladies…and most importantly, Valentines or not, keep the fire burning. Love, love, love! xxx
