Hello Spring!

spring96

Tomorrow we officially welcome the prettiest seasons of the year (even if thanks to Mexico´s lovely climate, I have been wearing shorts and sandals for about three weeks now), Spring! It’s time to get those heavy coats and boots inside some boxes and start wearing lighter and cheerier clothes. I know, I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do, but there is an explanation, something I will be able to reveal to you soon (hopefully). In the meantime, I’m celebrating the warmer weather and in a week or so, my birthday. Yes, another year, another candle burning (I have to confess that each year I get less excited, Sophie Pan is kind of taking over). Anyway, back to what concerns us today: Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be happier about it! What’s your favorite season of the year? You already know mine!

Sweet n’Raw’s X’mas Shopping Guide: LADY BLOOM

lady bloom

Another day, another post! Today I have for you the second part of Sweet n’Raw’s Holiday Shopping Guide. Yesterday, the Francophile got amazing response from all of you and I sure hope that today’s personality gets the same treatment. As I told you before (also, if you didn’t read yesterday’s post), the gift  includes two selections: the pricey one (the splurge) and the affordable one (for us girls on a tight budget).

Today’s personality has two of my favorite things: she dresses like a lady and she is a sucker for flowers (even more so when she finds them printed on a pretty, flared dress). She is into ladylike silhouettes (pencil skirts, bubble dresses, cap sleeves, short jackets). She’s into soft and delicate fabrics (lace, crepe de chine and silk are favorites in her repertoire). She loves bows, she loves embroidery, she loves bold and dramatic colors (nothing tops a violet dress and a rouge pucker).  Her perfumes are spicy, but always on the floral side. She is into lively florals, it’s the Secret Garden all the way. So if you have a friend (or mother, or sister) that matches this description, this is the list you need to be looking out before venturing into tat X’mas shopping spree. Here she is: LADY BLOOM
