Something new and exciting in the blogosphere: Bloggers Wardrobe!

It is a project by Studio Total and it’s going to be so much more than a simple webshop: think of it like a giant pool, filled with goodies, for bloggers and fashionistas! I’d love to swim in that pool!!!

I got an invitation from Studio Total to participate in the competition for the remaining 4 places.

Why should I be a part of this project?

Have you seen any fashion editorials without a statement make up look? Our fashion blogs are our own little fashion editorials. Where there’s fashion there’s make up, and I can do BOTH!

Please click HERE to give me the chance to be a part of this amazing project. And be a good sport and share this post with your friends. You’re only one click away of being a Good Samaritan! :)

P.S.: To prove my point about the importance of make up in a fashion shoot (although I know all of you that work in the fashion industry totally agree with me), I’ve included a few pics from some of my old posts:



I knew that the brunette thing was just a phase and that it wouldn’t last long. So here I am, back to my beloved blonde style! No matter what I do to my hair I always return to my trademark color. And I just had to cut it short. In this warm and humid weather the last thing I need is to blow dry and use the flat iron. It now takes me about 5 minutes to style my hair and another 2 minutes to wash it (not in that order!).

So with that out of the way, I have to say that I finally understood why I had lost my blogging mojo ( and please don’t laugh): I didn’t like my hair! As stupid as it may sound, I came to realize that I wasn’t liking my style (before returning to blonde that is) and that de-motivated me to do any outfit posts. I knew something was not quite right, but I didn’t know what it was. And I’m so glad I found it. They say that “when a woman cuts her hair she is about to change her life”. Who knows? Maybe that’s true...

I had to make a great come back so I pulled out the big guns: my brother! I hate the stupid “wall pictures” and I don’t intend to do them anymore. I choose quality over quantity. Within that context I deleted some of my latest posts, because I didn’t think they were consistent to the blog’s style or because I just didn’t like the way I looked.

(Face: Kryolan Micro foundation, Elf HD powder, Eyes: Sleek storm palette, Mac fluid eyeliner, NYX No105 false lashes, Kryolan No126 eyebrow pencil, Kiko lengthening mascara, Cheeks: Elf cool bronzer, Lips: Mac creme de nude)

(Dress: Mango, Shoes: Zara)

I also changed my blog layout and I feel this one looks so much better. What do you think?

Last but not least, I am using the Disqus comments platform for some time now, and it makes it easier for my followers to leave a comment and for me to reply. Because to be honest, I hated not replying to your lovely comments my darlings, but without disqus it was such a pain to do it!

Hope you like my new looks and please stay tuned because tomorrow there will be a second post about something very very important!!!
