During one of my latest Pinterest sessions I stumbled upon some absolutely breathtaking illustrations. They were mostly black and white, with just a little pop of color here and there. Frankly, they were gorgeous! I had to do some digging to find out who created them but in the end I got lucky and ended up at the homepage of Kerrie Hess. She's an Australian author and illustrator who's work has already been featured in Vogue, Tatler and Harper's Bazaar. She has also done illustrations Chanel, Kate Spade and Louis Vuitton just to name a few.
Check out some of her stunning pictures here. I wish I could do something as well as she can paint these pictures. :)
Those of you who follow me on Instagram (andreamst) might have already seen, that I have a new favorite in my nail polish collection. I don't know about you, but whenever fall comes around I instantly lose interest in all my bright and candy-colored nail polishes and gravitate toward something darker. These days everything black-ish is considered a hit in my book. Usually that means I wear Essie's Wicked from September to March, which admittedly can get a bit boring, but thanks to the guys over at Nouvelle Daily I've found my new favorite! Essie's Luxedo! It's the perfect shade for fall and winter, nearly black, but whenver the light hits it in a certain way, you can see that it has a slight purple shimmer, which makes it not as 'flat' as a complete black would be.
If you are still looking for that perfect shade for fall, I suggest you check it out. What colors are you wearing these days?
I don't know about you, but I'm a hand cream addict. I get such dry skin whenever I wash my hands, it drives me crazy if I then can't find my hand cream immediately. Therefore I own about five different hand and nail creams. You know, one for the office, one at home and the others evenly distributed to all my bags. ;)
On my last trip to the pharmacy I saw that they now also sell L'Occitane products! (-insert happy dance here-) I fell in love with their products on my last trip to London, but in my penny-pinching ways I wasn't ready to pay 12 pounds for a tiny tube, however nice the smell was. However now that I found it at home, for 2 Euro at that, I just had to buy it and can't recommend it enough. :)
Once fall hits here in Austria (about July this year...^^) I turn into a huge homebody. I think I subconsciously start preparing for hibernation or something. When the weather outside starts turning all grey and wet I like to get out all my candles, invest in a couple of new pillows to cozy up my couch and don't even get me started on how much I want this awesome rug. (It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!^^) Also this little metal chair... I know it's not exactly a comfy piece, but it's seriously awesome! Love at first sight for sure!!
Basically I just want everything to feel super homey and cozy for all the time I'm about to spend indoors over the next couple of months.
What about you, are you already excited for fall? I have to admit I'm kinda looking forward to it.
