Makeup Monday

I have just discovered the amazing art of the ultimate New York Dandy, John Wellington. Thanks, Ash.

He styled a photo shoot for Make Up For Ever, creating signature looks from the 20's, 30's, 70's and 80's. Instant love.


















I wish you a wonderful week, darlings!

Oh, Carrie!

Oh, what a day! I attended a charity poker competition tonight and played together with a few of Hungary's most prominent businessmen and businesswomen. Well, I realized two things:

{1} poker is fun and
{2} money can not buy style.

However, we raised HUF 9.7 million for the foundation I volunteer for and that is fantastic. Yay! I was so happy to be part of the whole thing. It was fun, lots of fun. I had a day off work today (well, yesterday to be exact); relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful, sunny spring weather, then went to the party and had a lovely night. After the event, I had my very own Carrie Bradshaw moment when I was walking to my car in my beautiful silk dress and five inch heels, holding my clutch and thinking about things like the sense of life, relationships, happiness, wisdom and so on. The night was beautiful with light spring breeze and lots of stars in the sky above me. So romantic, isn't it? Well, it was romantic indeed, except for the fact that I was a little scared as I was totally alone and my shoes were not made for running. On my way home, I listened to Nirvana's unplugged album and I felt happy.


I have been really busy lately and I hope to make my way around in great blogland next week to visit your amazing blogs. I wish you a lovely weekend, darlings! Thank you for your continuous support and love.

I am spending my weekend with a few of my best friends; I can't wait to see them! I have to drive two hours in the morning, so it is time for Cinderella to drift off to dreamland. Night night.

Wanna get cuffed?

Oh, I really do. I love big, statement jewelry. These are my favorites for the new season. What do you think: yay or nay?

Makeup Monday

Don't you just love these? The idea of the Pret-à-Papier collection of MAC is fabulous and I love the colors so much! They remind me of summer... will it ever come? We have rain and cloudy skies and once again I feel sick. I know you all have had enough of my wish-I-had-more-time-and-we-had-warmer-weather lamentation but I just need my daily fix. Give me some sugar, please. Love you all.



Have a fabulous week, darlings!

Favorite of the day

I simply love these shots. Hate it or not, those pink shoes are perfect, I would wear them day and night.

Oh and what else? Spring finally arrived here! When I went running today I smelled its sweet scent in the air and I was so happy that I run double as much as I had planned to. I hope you all enjoy some lovely sunshine. Have a beautiful day, darlings!

Alexia Admor: A sweet-sexy-girly-fun giveaway!

You all know I love girly stuff like big bows and anything feminine. How about a beautiful dress? Alexia Admor is a contemporary dress line with a focus on special occasion dresses. Based in New York City, they are defying the notion that sweet and sexy can not coexist. Their dresses fuse expressions of the sweet, the sexy, the girly and the fun into one cohesive message: that a girl with a vibrant social agenda can have a wardrobe to match her attitude and lifestyle. Go and check out their fashion blog here.
