Hi beauties! I've been going through some issues so you may see my posts a bit more inconsistently than normal. I may share at some point but for now please keep me in your thoughts.

I had done this look today though and quite liked it despite it being super simple so I thought I share. The light and pearly shades of the limited edition Chanel quint from Spring 2011 really open my eyes and look very summer appropriate. This quint was definitely a great investment as I keep going back to it over and over again and creating new combinations. Every single shade in that palette is just gorgeous! I paired the eyes with MAC Gladiola (LE - from 2 years ago I think?) which is a lovely purple toned fuchsia.

Let me know what you think :)

I love side bun hair styles and am always looking for new ideas. I just think having my hair on one side is much more flattering on my face than having it up in a poney or high bun. In this case, you can't see very well but I made a simple side braid and rolled it up and pinned it into a bun. Then I just added this fuchsia flower hair pin to go with my lipstick :D


And outfit of the day - gray stripy maxi dress was a bargain from Forever 21. Lol you're probably tired of seeing the same routine of maxi dresses from me. But I'm not about to get tired of them, they fit!!! I belted it with a bow belt from Aldo and am wearing a simple pink cardigan from Smart Set and leather flats from the Gap.
