WELLLLLLL I MUST talk about this….my Albanian sister Rita lands this ad campaign….so in love with the images…the sexy platinum Marilyn-esque hair will always remain a favorite of mine and it’s timeless look that keeps on giving–of course in the traditional WIMSY ANIMAL print that Cavalli has accustomed US to – ranges from pant suits to evening gowns she has become his MUSE and the new face of the brand-SHUMË MIRË RITA!!!
GOOOOOOD MORNING ….I’m trying to slowly breathe between this pic above with Black gown GOLD CHAINS -GAULTIER!!!!!! and then the collection at ELIE SAAB….I’m drooling -swooning-gagging- and perhaps pulling my hair out a bit…I can’t DEAL…. First Gaultier is a MASTER- he is fantasy and imagery come to life…like when ur a young girl dreaming up some DREAM dress and u wake up and Jean Paul has presented it to you-his collection dark- sexy-it actually reminds me of MELTING- THANK U 4 this awakening JPG!!! Below….more of a REALITY….Elie Saab is Red Carpet perfection …if one of our leading actresses would be smart -any of the dresses from this collection would be a crowd pleaser- evoking femininity-grace-lovliness- Elie The Great!!!! MERCI PARIS
MY FAVORITES ….ALL IN ONE SPOT!!!! Nothing is more fun then snacking/picking/and medling ur way thru a Appetizer Table… it was my brother & uncles Bday…and we were meeting our new In-laws so I wanted to create something extra SPECIAL …. so after walking into the Italian market…I knew exactly what I would do …all I kept thinking of was OLD WORLD – RELAXED – a total sexy organic flow….with that I did Salami- proscuitto – tons of cheese -olives-nuts-crackers- fruit and all kinds of gorgeous candy as accents for color..using uneven glasses-bowls -and different patterns and butcher paper underneath so I could spread stuff directly on the table…
FIFAAAAAAAAAA ….IT begins today ..the sport that BILLLLIONS watch… So much training involved…and did I forget to mention MOST Players are HOT HOT HOT- As most of u know I’m Albanian and with that comes SOCCER- it is my favorite sport to watch on TV and the all the men in the FAM love- I have such a huge respect for it and Love all the PASSION- dedication and Country Pride that comes with it..and that’s just us watching it at Home Lololol j/k ……LETSSSSSSSSSS GOOOOOOOOO!!!!
OKAYYYYYY I SWEAR IT’S COMING LOLOLOL…. The HEAT that is…so here are some UPDO ideas- I love throwing it up when it’s tooooo HOT and when u know ur hair will be sweaty and u gotta do something…there’s a ton of options- I prefer messy or a french Twist top left…but if u try it on yourself u can do it…below are the products I love and that totally help- u guys hear me talk about Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray all the time- because it is my fave product- but even more so for DO’S!!!! U need the grit that it has to give u staying power..to start I posted Bumble & Bumble Mousse for BODDDDYYYY…ELNETT Hairspray old school Lovin- always works!!! MUST MUST get Long bobby pins and hair pins if u have Long Hair- it will save U!!! And then there’s extensions- for the GLAM Girls- Go for it- Clip On’s ROCK.. Sally’s Beauty Supply -Most all beauty supply places have them and get Human Hair or they SUCK!!! GIVE IT A GO!!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!
