Coat on standby

Coat on standby.

I can feel it, I can see it, I can smell it..Spring is on it’s way. Nothing excites me more than weather that’s not too warm you can still wear knits, but still sunny enough to pull out those sunglasses. I’ve been eagerly awaiting it, especially on those winter afternoons when the darkness fell early and the air was too cool to bear. Now it’s getting darker later and it’s warming up around here, this means so many good things for me: photographing and filming in day light till later, feeling warmer and catching glimpses of the beautiful sunlight on the springing cherry blossoms. Wonderful.

My style forecast for this spring: Breathing new life into my lovely Neutrals.

    I love March because the days get longer and we get teased with warmer weather! For me I love seeing an injection of colour in people’s clothes; a lot less darks and more greys, pastels and brights. But the (trench)coat is on standby!

    Hi Hun,

    thanks for sharing your get ready with me signature red lip in Feb 15. I finally received my makeup geek eye-shadows. I have recreated the look and I am loving it. The recent rose look. I am tempted to buy the L’oreal pallette. I love the colour you put on your crease. Unfortunately with me I have had few l’oreal eyeshadows and they don’t last on me despite wearing a primer.
