7 Inspiring Finds You Need To Repin!

Call it a Sunday after hours, or a new Frizz series, this is another foray into the wonderful world of Pinterest, that nice little oasis of all things inspiring and beautiful I like to sink into few times a day.

As such, I’d like to share the inspiration and the wonderful finds by sharing 1 to 7 inspiring images, items, moments I came across on the great alleys of Pinterest. Today I started out with 7 because I wanted it to be a ‘Sunday after-hours’ more than a ‘kick-start Monday’ which I already did (by the way: how did you like ‘Soothe My Soul’?). Too much talk, let’s take a dip in the creative pool:

How do you feel about Feather Earrings? We talked about this kind of earrings before, here I am at it again, with a lovely pair of leather feather earrings from Love at First Blush. Fabulous handmade earrings designed by Sabrina Chin (one look at her designs was enough to leave me drooling… ahem dreaming about every single one of them! A girl after my own heart!)

Depeche Mode Soothe My Soul

My dahlings! Every Friday Break, to me, is like therapy room: I come clean with all my musical obsessions. And music, to me, was always an obsession. An addiction of you will. If I’m sad or feeling low, music will certainly help with that.

When I was …errr… younger?, I had this strong obsession for Depeche Mode. It was before my trip hop years and it was the perfect electronic prequel to that. They always knew how to perfectly balance electro with pop and especially rock. And this year they released a new album: Delta Machine. Needless to day it’s on heavy rotation on my playlist!

Amid the amazing pieces on this album (I must say I only had eyes for the good reviews. And there were many of them!) there’s one I particularly keep on playing and replaying. It’s really invigorating (for me) and makes for an hour of cardio. In 4 minutes. Not bad: Soothe My Soul, Depeche Mode. I do hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did (give it time, it gets to you) and I also hope it’ll help kick-start a new wonderful week for you! Now hit the jump and press play!

Miley Cyrus Dramatic Cleavage For Elle UK June 2013

I listened to one of her backyard sessions a while back, and Miley Cyrus sounded really talented to me. I’m certain there’s real substance to her fame, although she rised to it through the Disney channel. So did Britney, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling. And they’re not doing that bad for themselves right now. Au contraire.

Now: since she grew out of the Disney channel and into semi-adulthood, Miley only made the news front lines with her haircuts and her on-and-off engagement/wedding. Rumor has it that momentarily the wedding is off. She’s still on with her beau, though. And in case you’re wondering, yes, it’s the same boyfriend she’s had for a looong time: Liam Hemsworth.

But Miley Cyrus likes to keep it controversial. So her latest magazine pictorial, shot by Jan Welters for Elle UK, the June 2013 issue, looks daring right from the cover. Right from her laid back attitude and her up-to-her stomach cleavage. Which, honestly, doesn’t show much either way, so every time I end up wondering why she sticks her chest in everyone’s faces… then again, I prefer her’s over Kate Upton’s any day!

Wanting Butter London Royal Baby Nail Polish

It’s no secret that Butter London makes some pretty nail polishes. And more: A-Listers, designers and fashion people all over the world keep enlisting in the ever-growing army ranks of Butter London fans!

Why wouldn’t they, after all? They’re free of the famous harmful ingredients (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP or Parabens), a 3Free formula that many nail polish giants still haven’t adopted yet. Their range of colors is, I’m certain, a nail Heaven many nail fanatics dream of owning in its entirety. Including yours truly!

Now here’s another dream nail polish from Butter London, something of a beautiful sparkling purple entitled Pitter Patter (something I’m certain Kate is already experiencing, fully – ‘the pitter-patter of little feet’ in her stomach), dedicated to the Royal Pregnancy. Duchess Kate has fans in the Butter London board of directors: such loyal admirers that they’re willing to name a nail polish in honor of the wee royal-to-be! Only available online, the $15 aubergine shimmer gorgeousness looks like Royal gold to me!

Actually, you know what? forget the hair! How about those endless, perfect legs? (hit the jump to see what I’m talking about!)

Here’s Natasha Poly’s Pregnant Baby Bump

Up until a couple of hours ago, I didn’t even know that Natasha Poly was pregnant! But she is, and here’s her lovely pregnant baby bump! Freshface beauty looking amazing!

And knowing how the other models looked like when pregnant, we might go ahead and judge this baby bump as a 6-7 months along already. Natasha married businessman Peter Bakker a year ago, in April 2011 – I wonder if she didn’t match the dates voluntarily as the pregnancy announcement comes rather late if we’re to think that normally, such happy events are announced at around 3-4 months along. Also: notice her dress? it’s a blue dress. Pregnancy announcements usually hint at the baby’s gender as well. Is Natasha expecting a little boy, I wonder?

All in all, Natasha looks lovely and happy, just as she did in her wedding pictures. Wishing her nothing but the best and a healthy pregnancy&delivery, we’re hoping for those baby pics to surface sooner than April 2014…

Latest Nail Polish Trend: Neutral Nails

While going through the latest trends reports, I noticed something I thought really interesting and worth mentioning: the A-listers (and Z-listers alike) who care about their nails image keep wearing some disconcertingly simple manicures (below the lovely Kerry Washington, the joyful Alexis Bledel and one of the Reality Kweens, Khloe Kardashian) thus pushing news outlets to declaring it a trend.

Soft shades of neutral pink polish, the kind we’re used to seeing as base-coats or French-lacquers are taking the spotlight as the must wear right now. I don’t know how you feel about this kind of nails but to me, they’re like a jeans-based outfit: reliable. Certified timeless style.

That is, biensur, after a serious overdose of glitter nails or heavy/bright colored manicures. Whenever I feel like taking a break or taking the focus off of my nails, I wear this kind of pink-ish transparent polish. Also: it helps bring out the beauty of the natural nail, so ladies do take care of them nails! While they may look inoffensive, this type of neutral polish is the most unforgiving!

$1.5Million Gold Dress By Zac Posen For Ice Cream Commercial!

Remember we talked about Karl Lagerfeld and his Magnum ads? Well, it appears Magnum has a weakness for designers as they approached Project Runway judge and all around magnificent designer Zac Posen for a special kind of advertising.

Something that would involve both fashion and ice cream. And all in the name of Gold! Magnum Gold, biensur! For the commercial aptly named “As Good as Gold’ starring True Blood’s Joe Manganiello and Angelina Jolie’s Brazilian double, Caroline Correa, Zac Posen created a special kind of dress made of gold worth a total of $1.5 Million! Crazy, huh?

Now that you’ve heard what a dress is worth, imagine what the entire marketing project is worth! After all, it’s Zac Posen, right? Magnum ice-cream was just a sweet pretext to highlight his fashion grandeur once more! Because, if you’ll watch the video below, you’ll suddenly realize that Karl Lagerfeld may have had his weaknesses for Baptiste and Rachel Bilson, but he looked more like an authentic ice-cream fan while Zac here seems a gold&glitz fanatic.
