Happy Valentines Day lovlies! As I am such a big fan of any kind of celebration, doing special posts as well as dressing up for fancy occasions, I thought about doing a proper Valentines Day post which includes lace, flowers, perfumes and bits of make up. As I worked in a lingerie store until recently and pretty underwear was always my kind of thing, it seemed more than right to me to spoil myself with a little something for the month of Romance. Last year, when I teamed up with Sister Surprise I was super nervous to show you the result of our pictures, but this time I am even more nervous and really hope you are as happy with the result as we are.
We wanted the pictures to be elegant, 'less is more' was kind of what we wanted to achieve. Imagine a perfect Sunday morning, you wake up, the sun is shining on your face, you throw on your comfy silk kimono, listen to some french tunes while making coffee and looking out of the window. I would like you to listen to Sia while looking through the pictures, maybe with a cup of coffee in your hands and get thrifted away for the next three minutes. I played a bit in Photoshop to get this vintage kind of look as I wanted the editorial to look oldschool and encourage you girls to make more out of your morning routine.
Literally Matt already said that wearing a robe every morning builds confidence and I completely agree. Getting up can be so much fun, if you wear something pretty and make a little ritual out of it. You are like an artist when you get your make up done, so why not feel pretty, feminine and a little sexy while doing this? My girl Geena introduced me to Real Techniques brushes and I am forever thankful for that. It is so much fun now to play with foundation, highlighter, mascara and so on as well as finding the perfect lipstick, perfume and jewelry for special occasions. You all know that I am not a big jewelry fan, but I love art. A friend of mine launched her jewelry label called 'Environmental Jewelry' a while ago and only works with rice, which made me curious. So she sent over this pretty little rice ring and it has this arty, oldschool and laid back look that I wanted the pictures to be like, therefor the perfect match. I hope you have an amazing day, the sun is finally up again so make the best out of it! Lots of love, xx
'a devil's hand across my heart,
as we dance through the dark,
go ahead, go ahead,
love me deep until you can't
even though it hurts, even though it scars,
love me when it storms, love me when I fall,
every time it breaks, every time its torn,
love me like I'm not made of stone'
