As May comes to an end it’s time to share with you my ”Loving Lately” favorite things for this month. My posts from March and April seem to be your favorite posts, so once every month, I thought I would share with you books I am reading and love, new makeup favorites pieces and pretty jewelry or accessories. Let’s see what May’s edition list contains.
I chose this book because of the title, obviously, as Paris and whatever talks about Paris or takes part in Paris makes my heart bit faster. The story, based on historical events, is about April, an American woman who comes to Paris not only to find the secrets hidden in the apartment but also, to find herself. As she discovers the journals of Marthe de Florian, the owner of the apartment, April goes back to the Belle Epoque. Famous writers and painters show up, (including my favorite Marcel Proust) making the history and the past of the apartment valuable and precious. There is a little mystery in the book but it’s mostly romantic and easy reading, perfect for a quick escape to another place and another era!
Pixi Beauty Lash & Line Love Collection*
This month I was kindly sent by Pixi Beauty this gorgeous lash and line collection. All the nine products can be found in the permanent collection either on Pixi’s website or on other retailers. The collection contains three products for lashes and six liners.
First, there is the Black Lacquer Lash Primer, a multi-use primer, perfect to use as a base coat before mascara or after mascara to set or even by itself for a natural look. Then, there is the Large Lash Mascara, with a big brush which gives extreme volume and intense colour in one sweep. For the lashes also there is the Lash Line Ink which can be applied directly into the lash line for extra definition.
As for the liners, there is the classic Eye Definer Waterline which can be used on inner or upper lash line and the gorgeous Extra Eye Bright Liner perfect to make the eyes look awake, larger and brighter.
Lastly, the product which I loved the most is the Endless Silky Eye Pen. It’s a smooth and silky pen, easy to apply, waterproof and long-wear. I was sent 4 beautiful colors, cobalt blue, velvet violet, matte mulberry and rose gold. The pen is very pigmented while the color dries fast and doesn’t smug at all. Amazing product and totally affordable.
AndycollectionJewels Handmade jewelry*
Through my years on Polyvore, I have met incredible people! I made new friends and I had the chance to collaborate with brands and creative designers around the world. One of them is Andy. She runs a small business via Facebook and Instagram. She is the designer and the seller of the handmade jewelry AndycollectionJewels. This month I received her unique and wonderful jewelry. She was very generous and kindly sent me a few pieces as the reward to the contests we held on Polyvore.
Besides the Chanel earrings I had personally chosen, she also sent me a few beaded bracelets, (and I love beaded bracelets), a necklace with a beautiful red heart, a delicate chain with pendant, necklace and the cute pretty bag charm. The site www.andycollectionJewels.com is under construction but you can contact her anytime via Facebook or Instagram. Andy accepts custom orders also and in her collection, you can find bracelets, necklaces, earrings, key chains, etc.
