"Wake me up" makeup look

These are 4 of my must have products because they create a fresh and natural look- like you just woke up. The bronzer is Park Ave Princess from Tarte, the mascara is from Mac (I love the applicator in rubber), the concealer is from Nars (custard shade) and the blush is in shade Peony by Stila. I love these creamy blushes because of their natural finish. I usually apply then just with a flat foundation brush. Oh, and one more thing, don't forget to set

Makeup for Fun!

Some people might find it odd that I go into the "trouble" of putting makeup on almost everyday even if I am on my maternity leave but I find it relaxing. Just like some people like to draw or paint, I find that my makeup sessions relax me. While my little 3 months old is sleeping, I do my things and that makes me more relaxed to go on with my day as a new mom :)

Hair extensions: What could go wrong

Last February, I was walking with my friend Solène in New York. We went to the city in order to visit Grad schools in an attempt to determine what could I pursue after graduation (I was about to finish my undergrad degree in Commerce)*. After visiting the first school, it became clear to me: I was not ready to jump into grad school yet. To tell you the truth, I was extremely lost in my mind at that point. The hectic and crowded streets of New York, plus the high amount of caffeine in my veins had made me a tad irrational. So following that sudden epiphany, like a crazy person, I decided to enter the first hair salon I saw and asked to cut my hair below the chin line. 
The hairstylist, with a thick Albanian accent said: "You shouldn't do that, you will look like a boy"
