Anna Wintour exudes confidence and beauty, and reportedly served as inspiration for Miranda's character in the Devil wears Prada... She certainly does have the power and style to pull that role off !

It is safe to say that out of each outfit, we find either gray or black as the main colors. Bright colors are still present, but toned down and usually only used on one piece of clothing or accessory. Fur is also back in, on coats or as vests. The traditional over sized bag still works this season, I personally think we will never be able to go back to only carrying our necessities, but designers might beg to differ - one day !

Top 5 things to know about hair rollers
1) Do NOT use on wet hair, you won't be able to get them out
2) The Sections of hair should not be wider than the roller itself
3) don't pull the rollers out once you are done, go vertical and unwind
4) The dirtier the hair, the more it tends to respond
5) If you're using hot rollers, by the time you finish putting in your last one, you go back to the first one and take it out

'' Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find
If her daddy's rich, take her out for a meal
If her daddy's poor, just do what you feel ''

If someone came up to me and asked me the definition of life, I would get pretty elaborate !! That's why I love this incredible pie chart; give the credit to Ian over at a pretty sweet blog called " I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum ", which reminds me... I must see the movie!

Carla Bruni is a woman of all talents. And when I mean talents I mean this ex-supermodel turned singer turned president's wife has more than just beauty on her side. “She’s a kind of alpha female (...) she was more like a female Don Juan.” quotes Bernard Kouchner, a French foreign minister. Carla is no cinderella, born and raised with her two siblings into a wealthy family, it seems she was meant to become a woman of importance. Wherever she goes, whatever she does, people love her. From Karl Lagerfeld to George W. Bush, she seems to be picking up admirers all across the world, her biggest admirer being Sarkosy who states : “I am happy like nev-air.”
Can't you help but being a teeny weeny bit jealous? I know I can't. I mean, it's okay to have one talent, but she has them all. Not to mention the french president, whom I know could afford a dozen of those Tiffany bracelets and Jimmy Choos we've been dreaming about... So where is our rich and powerful prince charming?

Lately I've had quite an obsession for mermaids, so when I saw a podcast on Jean Paul Gaultier's spring 2008 collection, I started reconsidering my halloween costume. Not that I'm comparing his astonishing pieces to costumes, but the amount of inspiration that we can take from his collection is suprisingly refreshing. Long beautiful hair and plunging necklines completed the mysterious and precious look in the models eyes. Wow. I loved it.

I just found these beauties here for 70 percent off ! This leads to my conclusion : Ladies, please don't break your bank to buy hot shoes, just be a little patient and wait till they're on sale, you'll end up being really proud of yourself for finding such a deal.

After three weeks I'm back at home, quite relieved to be in my own bed. It's funny, I perceive myself as a world traveler yet I like nothing more than staying in bed all day on Sunday and drinking hot tea. Of course, I've already started planning Christmas (my Halloween costume has already been crafted and will be mentioned around then, since I don't think anyone else but me likes thinking of fall), It's something to look forward to and daydream about until I get there. Although surprisingly enough I am trying to live in the moment by living the last of (sniff) summer. WHY, SUMMER? WHY LEAVE SO SOON? I do like fall and winter but my lack of vitamin D gets me nowhere and when it does start to be holiday-ish, normal life takes its course and ruins it all.
Could I be more sour?
