Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011

Yesterday was the Victoria’s Secret 2011 Fashion Show. Did you watch it? How much did you like it? It might be the coolest fashion show of the year, seriously. And the most impressive too.

From the 4 votes I got (yeah pretty amazing, I know), your favorite angel seems to be Adriana Lima. 4 votes still are 4 votes, they count, so we are crowning Adriana today! My personal favorite is Alessandra Ambrosio.

Here is the full video updated on youtube of LAST YEAR’S show if you want to rewatch! Enjoy.

Paris, I miss you (part1)

Totally missing home today. When you’ve been used to living in Paris, the rest of the world seems a bit dull … except if you live in New York or London maybe, which is (almost!) as fabulous. Here is a little picture of the eiffel tower that I took this summer and had on my phone. Just because I miss home today. Xo

What are you thankful for?

I know I just posted a Thanksgiving post but isn’t the whole purpose of Thanksgiving to say what we are grateful for? We will do it but a fashion/beauty way. Let me show you “I’m so thankful for this gorgeous Max Azria necklace I bought the other day”! Of course it’s not the most important stuff, but let’s have some fun ;) “Oh and I’m also so grateful for the whole John Frieda hair products line” ;)

What are YOU thankful for? Hit me with your cool ideas!

PS: Definitely comment to share your blog with me, especially if you’re a fashion/beauty/fitness … blog. I’m new here so I don’t know many people yet but I am definitely willing to know you guys better and find a few cool blogs. So don’t hesitate: COMMENT WITH WHAT YOU’RE THANKFUL FOR AND YOUR BLOG LINK!

Xx

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am no american and unfortunately I am not celebrating Thanksgiving today – I wish! – but I wanted to wish all my american friends and readers (yeah ok let me believe 5 minutes that I have readers!!) a very happy Thanksgiving.

First of all, I would like to tell those of you who might have a GetGlue account to check-into anything (or the Macy’s parade) to unlock exclusive stickers. It’s not much about the stickers but more about the fact that for each check-in, Aflac is giving $1 for Childhood Cancer charities (up to $1,000,000 but we’re still VERY far from that). It’s a great cause – and very dear to me – and all you have to do is check-in. Sounds like an easy way to do something really positive and good today, right?

But who says Thanksgiving also says: major food intake. I know you’re feeling guilty. I feel it too. No, I’m not celebrating Thanksgiving. Yes, I did ate that chocolate telling myself it was totally allright because today was Thanksgiving. You said “lame excuse”?! I know. But whatever. If you’re actually celebrating Thanksgiving, it is totally normal to indulge. I mean, yes to eating ealthy but if we can’t even eat that yummy food on Thanksgiving and Christmas, what are we left with?

Still, that doesn’t mean we want to gain 1 or 2 extra pounds just in one day. This is why I searched the internet for you, looking for some of the best posts by our dear trainers/fitness gurus … and try to see what they told us to do to face the huge calories intake. So follow me. The girls at ToneItUp give you the 7 secrets to safe splurging (you see?! It’s ok to splurge sometimes, even certified trainers say it!). Women’s Health Magazine shares with you their amazing Thanksgiving workout that burns calories … FAST! Last but not least, if it comes to baking a pie for tonight, Shape compares pies so you can go with the healthiest/low-fat one! Enjoy!

Don’t forget: try to eat very slowly. You will feel full sooner and won’t take a second serving of that delicious yet fatty puree. Same goes with alcohol: sip slowly and try to go for wine instead of stronger alcohols.

Taylor always wears princess dresses but this one was especially amazing. She looked fabulous with this long golden gown and I can’t help wanting the exact same one. What did you think of her look?
