Inside my Cosmetics: Perfumes

This time in the "inside my" section, I've chose to show you my perfumes. I really like sweet smells and absolutely in love with Coco Chanel, no. 5, which I've got as a gift. The smell is so classy and also related to Marilyn Monroe, which said in one of her many interviews "You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed? A pyjama top? The bottoms of the pyjamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel N°5’, because it’s the truth... And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude’. But it’s the truth!'

So I'm also obsessed with no. 5 can't tell exactly what's in that fragrance that makes me feel very feminine and elegant. I always wear it to special events.

What is yours favorite perfume?

The second favorite is one that I currently just finished and waiting for a good sale on it, Givenchy  "Very Irresistible" which have an addictive scent:)
Meanwhile these are the one on my shelf: 
Hilfiger "True Star" & Beckham "Intimately" are my day to day perfumes.

Aztec Print & Tsubo Shoes

Hello Lovelies! It's been a very busy week for me, as I'm trying to get some posts and actually post it on my blog:) 

My beloved daughter is almost 4 month old and she is my whole world, at the same time I find it a bit difficult to keep dressing nicely, as I don't get too much sleep and really trying to get over the tiredness and not getting out of the house looking like a slob.

Also I was thinking to post some of Leanne (my sweet baby) wardrobe on my blog, would you like to see some of her clothes? my mother is also making her lots of cute jumpers that I would love to post:) 

So for today I kept it simple with Zara Skinny jeans and grey top and my favorite Aztec print Bilabong knit, which is a gift from my husband and my new man shoes, shoes style by Tsubo, which are so comfy and also a gift from my mom:) bag is from Guess.

Floral-Red & a Lunch

This week was quite interesting and intense, but in a good way. I spent a day on a TV studio, which was quite exciting and nervous!  I was interviewed about my work, as an art curator. I arrived with my husband, which was awesome, as we have celebrated 12 years together the day before, but we postponed the fancy lunch to the day after:) So this is what I wore to the interview, floral tube skirt, which are quite trendy with peplum and my brand new shoes from Tsubo, which I love!!!
