AUDREY HEPBURN

I feel there are not enough words to describe this woman. Audrey Hepburn, has inspired and influenced generations of women all around the word. Beautiful, funny and talented, truly iconic. Is there really anyone who can compare with her? She died young, but she will always stay alive in the hearts of all of us who were touched by her. You've probably guessed by now, how fond I am of this british actress and humanitarian. To start with, I love everything british, but that's a long talk. I could go on and on about how amazing she was, today it's her 85th birth anniversary(she was a taurus like me), but I thought it would be better to talk about her fashion sense. You can see the rest by just watching one of her movies(or all). She was considered one of the most important fashion icons for many years, as she was linked with elegance and style. She starred in numerous movies, won great awards and the critiques worshiped her beauty and talent. Her performance in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's is the most memorable parts of the actress. The black dress that she wore at the beginning of the movie is considered to be one of the iconic pieces of the 20th century, and perhaps of all times. Pearls, diamonds, gloves, elegant updos, large hats and sunglasses pay tribute to the timeless feminine style. One after the other, women up until today, are trying to imitate her and steal some of the glow of the sweet and irreplaceable Audrey. 
We will always remember her and smile. She could have danced all night...

VIBRANT ORCHID

Have a nice month everyone! Can you believe it's May already? Last month of spring, yet still we haven't tasted spring. Not as much I'd wish to. The weather is so unstable, but we can only hope that May will be warm and, above all, full of happiness and success! There is a lot waiting this month, a lot of stress and a lot of work. And also my birthday! Please May, be good to us...
Since we're talking about spring, is there really anything else that screams spring other than colorful flowers? And more importantly, orchids? Orchid is the color of this year and has always been one of my favorites. It's fresh, it's beautiful and more unexpected than pink(my actual favorite color). It just makes me happy for some reason. Have you ever thought that you could replace deserts with makeup? It just feels so easy when you see all these colorful cosmetics that look as delicious as candy! But you don't eat them so, you feel good, you look good and your thighs will thank you. Maybe I have to try it! I must admit that I was a little hesitant with vibrant orchid lippies, but I've seen them in so many different lips and skin tones that I'm convinced! So, after an extensive search, and after learning more about Pantone, I've made a list with my favorite orchid makeup products for 2014. As always, I have chosen both expensive and more affordable ones. There are many more brands, and many more products that could be here, but I felt I should reduce the list a little. Also, I couldn't find decent photos for some of them. You'll probably notice that I went a little crazy with the lip and nail products, but it's a fact: you can never have enough lippies and nail polishes! At least, I can't! I guess there's nothing left to say, only that I love them all so much! I hope you do too, enjoy!
What do you guys think of orchid makeup? Are you a big fan of the color of the year? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
