If you haven’t found out already a new shop’s in town, a cabinet des curiosités where one can find several useful or decorative objects for one’s house and everyday life. The owners, experienced diggers on their field, bring out to the Paraphernalialight special findings from all over Europe, some of them even being one-of pieces.
In love with the chairs and the lamps.
A week with plenty beauty arrivals just in time to welcome March. Kérastase launched the new luxe series “Chronologiste”, introducing an innovative exfoliating rinse-out product for the first time. “Soin Gommage Renovateur” is to be used prior to the shampoo and the rejuvenating hair mask for deep detox.
The procedure is completed with the “Parfum en Huile”, a scented hair oil conceived by the famous perfumer Alberto Morillas,
giving a shiny and silky look.
I performed the whole ritual -followed by a head and neck massage- at Andreas Coiffure, which left my hair
lightweight and glowing. However, if you prefer to enjoy the ritual at home, you can have an amazing outcome as well especially with a professional hair dryer and brush like the ones by Remington. Giorgio Armani also launched the Summer 2015 collection consisting of an earthy eye shadow palette, a nude sparkly lipstick, a discreet shimmering powder and a bronze nail polish. In addition, the Armani Prive perfume series counts a new member, “Pivoine Suzhou”, inspired by the gardens of Asia and more specifically the Chinese peonies *eyeroll*
Last but not least, my newest nail lacquer obsession “All eyes on nude” belongs to the Cashmere Matte collection of Essie and it’s the absolute nude color.
Fine jewelry tend to bear a breath of elderly air, an aged aesthetics that when seen with a fresh pair of eyes feels like carrying too much, as if they were found in a wealthy old lady’s tired boudoir.
The use of precious stones like sapphires, rubies and emeralds needs a contemporary look and a modern, elegant and refined approach in order to make a jewel look appealing in the ’10s. This is the main reason why I love Yannis Sergakis Adornments. He masters the high aesthetics of an unconventional design, bringing out calm power and unpretensciousness.
