If you haven’t bought a wrap skirt yet, I suggest you do so. I have four in my wardrobe and I wear them with everything. They flatter every single kind of body type, really, I promise you this is true. In fact one of my dreams with my brand is to design a capsule collection of wrap skirts and dresses, I’m even thinking of having my mother, who is an incredible seamstress and makes all her own clothes to make my first set to sell. So tell me, are you team wrap too and would you buy one? I’m looking into raw silk as the fabric because it’s the most perfect material. And I’d love to see some of you wearing a wrap skirt my mother and I designed this summer. It would make me so happy! | wearing @audrey leighton.vintage |
I’m really, really big on lip balm, did you know this? I somehow manage to justify spending 50 euros on 1 pot, which yes is a ridiculous price, I agree. And I must always, like my bottle of water have a balm in arms reach or in my handbag. The @lancomeofficial lip balm has moved up to my number one, best ever. Really. And not half as expensive as the La Mer or Chanel balms I fell for too. Also very much into using @givenchybeauty ‘s youth essence serum. I coat my face in this before applying my CC cream and the glow my loves, is a good one. I can’t recommend the @lancomeofficial Patchouli perfume enough . It’s rich, dark, sexy and smells like a tropical sunset. I loveeee it. And if you’re prone to crying or never sleeping enough like me, I like their eye patches too. I store mine in the fridge and putting them on over coffee in the morning is the closest I’ve come to a spa experience in a very long time. And no, none of this is sponsored. So many of you ask me for beauty product recommendations, so I shot this photo and shared these for no reason other than I love you.
You must must hold on to the fact that you are alive. You must keep that flame alight. It’s ironic that living can often make us forget we’re alive. The routine, the commute to work, the glow of the screens our eyes see, the laundry, the tedious task of shrugging dinner into a shopping basket, bills we’d rather not pay... But don’t let yourself forget that there’s air in your lungs, fire in your soul and so much life wrapped right into your bones. Please promise me you’ll remember to never forget just how much life you have, and just how much it means to live. | dress by @nidodileda |
Four pieces of thick double sided tape, two perfectly round, large enough yellow flowers, 1 bra discarded on the floor and voila we got the photograph I saw in my head, another in my ongoing personal flower project, which I absolutely don’t have time to be indulging in but I paused my 10000 deadlines for a few minutes, tore off my top and with no shame asked my photo assistant Julia to help me tape my nipples to the flowers... the things, the ridiculous things we do as a team in pursuit of a photo. You can’t even imagine. And the messes we make? Oh wow, those you wouldn’t believe either. Also I say we, but it’s mostly just ME making the mess and she will be nearby rolling her eyes.
Still one of my favourite photos I’ve taken for @rocknrosegirls who I have the honour of shooting for on a regular basis. They were the first brand I ever collaborated with back when I started as an influencer over a decade ago. @jesslathan & @emilyjanelathan are practically online family by now. And yep these are still the best simple everyday hoops you’ll find anywhere, I promise.
There is beauty in breaking. There is beauty in the messes. There is beauty in the chaos. There is beauty in the fires you hide, that you try to hold down. And that which lies quiet; the mayhem of everything it is to be human, all I choose to see is it’s messy, chaotic, fiery, prone-to-breaking beauty.
