1. I've been following the gorgeous Desi Perkins for quite a while on youtube now, but for a few weeks, I became completly addict to her videos. She's crazilly talented, and come on guys she has such a perfect and dewy skin. Also, she always come up with perfect brows! I'm obsessed with the looks she created for Halloween, and I would love to recreate her Bride of Frankenstein make up. Sadly, we're not really celebrating Halloween in France and I'm not sure to be able to recreate such a flawless make up anyway. If you love the look on the picture, you can find the complete tutorial on her channel

2. I am a pump fanatic. I love them pointy and high. Without any platform. And this model from Zara is close to perfection (not saying that because I am completely addict to Zara). I've been seing these babies for the first time this summer when I was in Tokyo and I tried to forgot about them, like, I really tried hard. Because they're quite on the pricy side, but after paying a visit on Zara website again, and seeing they're still in stock in my size ... I'm about to order guys... 

3. Neutrogena Visibly Clear Skin Stress Control. That's quite a long name for my favorite facial scrub. I'm using this product for years and years (like 5 years maybe). I love the smell and it's not too agressive on my skin. I know it's not supposed to be good for the skin but ... I tend to use it on a daily basis.

I finally have a week off from university. And free time always means shopping spree! On monday I went to do some shopping with a few of my classmates, and I did some dammage. I am big fan of Kiko Cosmetics, I think they have very good products for really affordable prices. I was first tempting to buy some of their water eye shadows, but first love is always the strongest and I ended up buying lipsticks. As usual. Not as if I already owned around 40 lipsticks. But, I was on the hunt for some Kylie Jenner shades for fall, because I'm all about those mauvy pink and darkest nudes that she use to wear. I decided to get three lipsticks, of three different ranges. The first one is from their cheapest line, the Smart Lipsticks. I got it in the shade 918 Classic Rose. It's the nudest color of the three lipsticks I got. It retails for 3,90 euros (around 5 dollars) is quite pigmented but you'll need to reapply it during the day. Then I got the Unlimited Stylo in 013 Cocoa, and oh guys this shade is perfection! It's the perfect rosy mauve color and it's perfect for fall with a matte look on the eyes! Totally recommend it, it's super creamy and pigmented and will last and stain your lips! Finally I got a Velvet Mat Lipstick in 612, Strawberry Pink. The packaging is adorable. For all of you girl fans of Rose Gold you're gonna love it! The finish is matte but not dry. The shade is in between the Smart Lipstick and the unlimited stylo, it's more on the pinky side and is super wearable on a daily basis! Here are the lipstick swatches.

As a shopaholic, I have to admit that I'm completely obsessed with the Zara website ... and that I check their new arrivals almost daily. I know. I'm terrible. Anyway. When I saw this sweater in the new autumn line, it totally reminded me of a IRO top I saw on Kristina Bazan a few months ago. I love IRO but it's definetly not on my student budget. Okay let's be honest, that's definetly not a perfect dupe but hey for 40 euros ... you can't expect the same than from a 700 euros sweater right? The texture, boxy cut and black detailing kinda reminded me of the super expensive yet gorgeous piece and I'm really thinking about getting it. What do you think? Liking the Zara sweater?

1. Turtle Necks - With the come back of fall and winter are coming back cozy sweaters. One of my favorite trend when it comes to this is turtle neck sweaters. I love how cozy and warm they are. I'm always freezing when I leave my house early in the morning and those sweaters are my new best friends. The one I'm wearing on the picture is from H&M last winter collection, but I plan to get some more, maybe at Zara or Forever 21.

2. Nicole Scherzinger (Big Fat Lie) - Scherzy finally released her new album! And I love it! I sang Your Love all summer long. I was liking this track so bad and she was gorgeous in the video clip. My favorite song on the new album is by far "Girl with a Diamond Heart". I think it's such a lovely song and Nicole's voice sounds pretty amazing. Must listen to this if you're into RNB ! 

3. Yay for fall! I can finally wear this Shiseido lipstick again. It's the first Shiseido product I ever had and it was gifted to me by one of my lovely japanese friend when I was in Japan! The color is hard to describe. It's a dark red with a bit of plum and brown tones at the same time. It's such a lovely color for fall and goes perfectly with neutral or champagne eye shadows.

4. Three Floor Dresses - I've been obsessed with Three Floor for a few years now. You might have seen some of their dresses around already since many fashion bloggers love to wear them. I'm obsessed with their clean cut and lovely material. I check out there new collection recently and some dresses are to die for. Picked a few one to share with you.

Got to admit that I'm not a huge Kardashian super fan. I've been watching a few episode of their reality show but never got sucked into it. But I have to admit that I really like Kim K style since she has been dating Kayne. I saw this outfit on the Vogue website and was just like, oh girl, that's quite interesting! I love this monochromatic look. It's super like basic but really feminine and classy. I never thought about a red pencil skirt but damn it looks super good paired with grey!

Today I realised I haven't buy any new make up for quite a while. And I'm running out of so many products so I'll definetly need a little make up refill. On my list, a new liquid liner, a new brow pencil, and some powder. When I was thinking about what brow product buy once I'll be totally out of My Lancome Le Crayon, the first idea that came to my mind was the super well known Anastasia Brow Wiz. And I thought ... how come I never tried this out before? And it made me think about all those products beauty bloggers constantly raves about that I never had the chance to try before. Here's my list. Waiting for yours in the comments, and for some good dupes in you have some!

1. The Anastasia Brow Wiz: I am litteraly obsessed with nice brows. I like them thick but not too much, and well defined without being too boxy. The Anastasia Brow Wiz is probably the product missing to my life. It's the number one brow product at the moment. The whole Youtube beauty community is raving about this little retractable pencil, so thin that it can mimique perfectly the look of a brow hair. It's available in many shades and will match most eye brow colors. I think it's definetly gonna be my next purchase since I saw they were available on nelly.com.

2. Mary-Lou Minizer by the Balm : I got this highlighting powder for my best friend birthday (love having a make up lover as a bestie for real) and, you know that feeling when you're like ... ew kind of present I would definetly keep for myself! But no worries, I gave it to her. And she was freaking happy. And since that day ... I'm like obsessed and feel like my make up life won't be complete until I got my hand on it. 

3. The Lorac Pro Palette : Must say that if I could, I would own this palette for quite a long time. Sadly in France we cannot buy it! At list if we can, I'm definetly not aware (not talking about Ebay where you can find them for a crazy amount of money). I know I would love this palette and have a daily use of it since I do wear eye shadow on a daily basis (thanks god for the Naked Palette). If any of you has a idea to get it all the way from America, let me know! 

4. NYX Butter Gloss: These lipglosses has been on my wishlist for so long, especially in the shades Crème Brulée, which was sold out on NYX Cosmetics french website for so long. I would also love to try Tiramisu and some of their dark shades to test the pigmentation. The packaging is freaking adorable ... I mean, it's like a little pinky rainbow when you own all of the shades.

5. MAC Ruby Woo : I am a lipstick junkie. I love my reds especially when I have a quite simple outift, It instantly adds color and a bit of glamour to any outift. I have quite a lot in my collection, but I never owned MAC Ruby Woo which is definetly one of the Mac most famous lipstick. It's well known to be a very suitable red for a lot of skintones. Definetly have to give this a try. What's your favorite rep lipstick?

If you should invest in one coat this year, go for a camel one (say the girl who doesn't own one and who just ordered a new black and collar furry one). Camel is a timeless color, perfect reminder of fall that will nontheless add a bit of color to your cold days outfits. It's easy to pair with the basics autumn color such as black, cream, grey or burgundy. 

The trend for the fit and cut is definetly oversized for this year. To still look put together, wear it with high heels, feminine blouses and skinny jeans. I love Kristina Bazan look on the picture down below, She perfectly mixes black and camel and her hat finishes the outfit perfectly. Let me know in the comments what coat you cant to invest for this winter!

1. YSL Black Opium : It's quite surprising for me, since I never liked YSL perfumes before. I'm usually much more into light and floraly scents when it comes to perfume, but for once, I changed my mind. It's has coffee accords scents (which might be the reason why I love it, since I totally love coffee smell), mixed with Patchouli, orange blossom and cedarwood. I think it's a very good perfume for fall and winter and it's from now on my Christmas wishlist. The packaging is also to die for! I love the mix of black and pink and the bottle as some little sparkles spread everywhere. A good mix between feminity and masculinity, as usual from YSL.

2. Thank's Zara for restocking this bag. Because yes, I might splurge on it. I need a little black back to carry on everyday, and this one seems like the perfect one for me. It might be a close cusin of the Chanel Boy Bag. And well, I love the Chanel boy bag. But cannot affoard it. And won't be able to affoard it in years I guess. 

3. Jun Hasegawa is by far one of my favorite model and women in general. She's a gorgeous Japanese model, mother of two little child. She has such a healthy way of life between Japan and Hawaii. She's the kind of successfull women I like to look up to. Natural, nice and blooming. I love checking out her instagram and you might have seen her face before if you're already followig my IG account!

One thing I love with the come back of fall and winter? Dark lips! I'm not into the super dark vampy lips kind of trend. I usually go for lighter burgundy or deep reds. Not the kind of girl to pull out crazy purple either. I decided to share with you two of my favorite burgundy/plum lippies.

107 Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss - Who doesn't know this drugstore iconic lipstick for fall? Rimmel is one of the cheapest brands for lipstick but always provide amazing shades and finish. This shade is perfect for an edgy look. It applies smoothly and have a quite long lasting power. I would nontheless recommend to moisturise your lips before applying it because it can be a little bit dry. The finish is matte and doesn't transfer much for a drugstore lips product.

914 Kiko Smart Lipstick Amaranto - Ok, so here we have a huge favorite of mine. I got this lipstick by the end of August during a shopping spree with my best friend. I went to Kiko to get a nude shade I spotted on Barbara Parade, but I ended up with a tone of swatches on my arm. I finally decided to not go too crazy and I only got this one and the nude shade I was looking for. And let me tell you, I do not regret it at all. I always got so many compliments when I wear this lipstick. The color is amazing, it's lighter than the Rimmel one and more shiny. I would say it's more on the purple side and maybre more wearable on a day to day basis. It stains your lips lightly but you have to reapply at least once during the day especially if you're eating or drinking but overall it's a very good product.

1. This same day last week I was stuck in front of my TV, looking at Beyonce & Jay Z On The Run Show. What to say, Jay is an amazing rapper and I do think rap is a music which is twice better to hear live. But Beyonce guys, Beyonce. She was flawless, her outfits were amazing and her make up... perfection. She was rocking a bold cat eyes glittery look, with nude lips, till she brings out some red lips during drunk it love. And for sure, perfect Beyonce glow was going on. I was both completely absorbed by her performance and her appearance. And ger and jay just sounds amazing together

2. Elle Ferguson style. Always, forever, pefection. I would die to have just 1/10 of Elle closet, she always look perfect and is always on point. She's mixing white black and neutrals perfectly, have te best shoes collection on earth, and that cool blond wavy australian hair. Oh and she liked my last selfie guys. Elle Ferguson. Elle Ferguson from They All Hate Us liked my selfie... I mean come on!

3. I finally got my hands on one of the Dior Fluid Lipstick released earlier this spring. I got mine in the color Kiss Me which is a cool tone baby pink. I love their packaging, I love the lipctick color but I'm not a fan of the smell of it. Also think that for a high end product, you have to reapply it quite often, but it's maybe due to the light pink shade. Overall really like it. Feel so fancy when I pull it out of my bag. 

4. Miranda Kerr at Paris Fashion Week. Miranda Kerr in general. Such a gorgeous women and one of my biggest style inspiration. Totally blow away by her at the Sonia Rykiel fashion show. Also totally loved her off duty look all week long. Special mention for the super deep v neck that she can completly pull off and stay super classy.

How do I spend my sundays? In bed, with hot coffee and chocolate snacks, and some good fashion blogs full of new posts on my laptop screen. I'm a fashion blog reader for maybe 5 years now, and I do have my staples and favorites. It was hard to pick only 5 to share with you but I didn't wanted to make this post too long. Also, feel free to share your favorite or your own fashion blog in the comments!

Come Over to the Dark Side we Have Candy - That's quite a long name that the beautiful Cindy picked up. But when you read her blog you definetly get the meaning of it. I follow her blog since 2008 or 2009 when she was at the very begining of her blogging story. I instantly felt in love with her style quite close to mine, which means a lot of black, white and grey with with a bit of leopard sometimes. The pictures are really lovely and her blog is definetly one of my favorite out there. 

Harper & Harley - I adore the style of this australian it-girl. Once again, very monochromatic, with a lot of grey. She sometimes wears amazing designer pieces, especially shoes and is always extremely classy and natural. She also put together some lovely clothing boards which are very inspiring! Chosing between all my australian favorites bloggers wasn't an easy thing though. Chronicle of Her, Tuula and Theyallhateus were definetly on my top 10 list.

Kayture - Who doesn't know the gorgeous Kristina Bazan? This women is to me pretty amazing, She's so young but is already so sucessfull and teaming up with the biggest brands in the world. She's also a real inspiration and the proof that hard work and believing in your dreams do pay off. Not only that but her boyfriend James takes the most amazing pictures of her to illustrate the blog. I love reading her posts when she shares both her looks and her amazing travels around the world. My travel bucket list never stop growing because of this beautiful babe. A must read for any fashion lover in my opinion.

Fashiontoast - I had to share Rumi's blog. Because I started being addict to fashion blogs after discovering hers in late 2008. Because I was crazilly happy when I got a Vivi (japanese magazine) issue were she was featured during my first trip in Tokyo, and because her style is simply unique. She's to me one of the biggest and most inspiring fashion blogger out there and she has such a doll face. I'm so admirative of her success and her fearless style.

Song of Style - Aimee Song is a huge style inspiration, she's so daring when it come to mix prints  and colours, her hair always looks fab and she has an amazing shoes collection. She also seems to be such a sweetheart, is highly involved in the defense of animals and guys, her youtube video on how to take beautiful instagram pictures changed my life. If you like her blog, you might also like the lovely Jenny from Neonblush and, of course, Sincerely Jules. Who doesn't know her for real?

1. Lemon Juice is definetly my go to drink recently. I love to mix it with some water so it's not so hard for my throat. Even if fall is finally here, the weather still pretty hot in south of France during the day and it's super refreshing to drink this juice during the afternoon. Plus on the morning it really helps me to wake up and has a lot of vitamin C. One advice, if you daily wake up at 6AM like me, this might be a good help.

2. I spend a lot of time watching beauty gurus on youtube, because I do think it's the best way to learn about how to correctly use make up products, to keep up with the new beauty release and to see real life swatches. My current favorite goes to the cute Emily Fox that in my opinion deserve much more subscribers. This gorgeous lady always upload very good quality swatches and make up looks that you should definetly check out

3. Talking about new products release, I'm dying to try the new Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquers since I saw Shaaanxo using them in one of her tutorials. The colors look simply stunning and highly pigmented and they do carry many colors in their range. I personally want to try Firecracker which is certainly the perfect glossy red I'm searching for months. A little trip to Sephora is needed I guess.
