straight edge cocktails

These past few days I've been trying to convince myself to go back on a diet but since we're only getting out of winter here, the cold and all that shit really isn't helping me stay out of the cookie jar.

So when I went to China Town the other day I made a move by buying myself a small bottle of Blueberry juice to try out the "benefits", and now I've been drinking it nearly 6 times a day without touching those cookies (except a piece of black chocolate I admit).

Here's how to make it:

  • Blueberry // Cranberry // Raspberry juice (natural or without sugar)
  • Half a lime // lemon
  • A few leafs of mint // basil
  • Soda water // San Peligrino // Tonic
Cut a few slices of lime put them in a glass, then add the mint leafs and crush them.
Pour a tablespoon full of the juice of your choice. Now just add the soda (the non sweet kind) and a few ice cubes and voila!

SEPHORA primer review

I recently had a friend bring me the Sephora Smoothing Primer over from France, since we sadly don't have Sephora here.

I was basically looking for a primer that was affordable and that worked well.

You see my problem is I have oily skin and so my make-up has a tendency to fade or even just smudge which I hate. So putting my faith in the comments I had read online I decided to try it out.

I've always loved Sephora because it's basically quite affordable and the products have always hooked me up, quality wise.
I've been using it for about a week now and I have to say I'm impressed.

  • The texture is perfect, transparent, not too liquid but not thick enough to clog my pores. You just need a press for your whole face.
  • It doesn't smell like shit (hey I'm just being honest) I think it's pretty close to olive oil even though it's tagged as "Fragrance Free".
  • It lasts for at least 4 hours in my experience when used on eyelids. And more for the rest of the face.
  • Works well as an eyeshadow primer (I always used to have my eyeliner and eyeshadow smudging after batting my lashes a few times which was awful).
  • After using this my make up seems to glide off more easily when I wash it off.
In all I'm pretty happy about it. For 10e. it's more than I expected (seeing as Urban Decay's Primer Potion is twice the price). I'd definitely give it a 4/5.

Helmut Lang Spring '11

I really love this collection, first of all because of the colours that fit perfectly for spring, the light, airy fabrics just seem to flow.
I love how it incorporates that spring feeling without touching the usual flower patterns, pink, blue and light green colour pallets.
I totally see these looks as re-used for summer and even fall by pairing tights or knee high wool socks with the dresses.
I'm also really impressed by the blazers paired with long dresses or mid calf shorts.

So yesterday was my friend Luna's birthday. To keep it simple I'll just explain that I have this view of birthdays that it should be ALL about you for at least 4 days to a week. And so last Wednesday the celebration started with my other friends and I bearing gifts for her.
In the afternoon we arranged that we would go to a special place for diner something Chic & Fun and so without telling her we brought her to an American Diner called Trixie. Here are the pictures from then on!

. hang on the box .

I got pretty much nothing to talk about, but since I keep my camera around for any "special" occasion I took a few snaps yesterday.
Here they are:


Quick lunch in China Town


I have no idea what this building is but it's really beautiful !


Helped my friend Luna hand out Curriculums to different shops, we even
tried for Diesel!



Random cute looking but apparently (to Luna's knowledge) disgusting. Too bad!

Womanity by Thierry Mulger

I've been obsessed with this perfume, ever since I saw it while wandering trough the web and saw how beautiful the bottle was. Then yesterday I got myself a sample, and I have to say it's divine. I mean first the bottle then the smell ♥.

I read lots of reviews that described it at a mix between Fig and Caviar. That sound pretty mysterious & luxurious to me! I'm in love.
