June Cover Girls =

Sharing some of my favourite Cover Girls from the June Magazines!
Nicole Richie – That Magazine May/June 2011

This has to be one of Nicole Richie’s best magazine covers ever, right? She posed for the second issue of That magazine and I love, love, love it! Really crushing on her hair and the beautiful cat-eye makeup. Hadn’t heard of That Magazine before, as it’s French, but think the photos of this covershoot are simply stunning!

Actually wasn’t blown away by the cover photo but the editorial shots for the magazine are gorgeous!
In her editorial she models a mix of Burberry, Gucci and Moschino Cheap and Chic. 

I’m not really a big fan of Katy Perry but how great does she look on the June 2011 cover of Vanity Fair? She was photographed by the famous Annie Leibovitz & I think it’s possibly the best she’s ever looked.
The editorial with Katy is very Haute Couture! This is not a look that you’d normally see Katy in and I have to say I think it looks amazing. Love the Parisian feel to the shoot :) It’s interesting to see Katy modeling pieces from the S/S 2011 Dior Couture collection throughout her Vanity Fair editorial, because so many celebs have stopped wearing the labels since the recent John Galliano scandal. 

“Britney’s Back” claims Bazaar Magazine on the cover of their June 2011 issue! Love the white Bill Blass 2011 fall collection cut-out dress she wears on the cover plus the shot of her in Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 Sheer Star Print Gown is very fun.
W magazine’s June 2011 cover stars former Charlie Wilson’s War cast mates Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks, who reunite in the upcoming dramedy Larry Crowne. On the cover, Roberts wears a Dolce & Gabbana dress with inky lace sleeves and a wide Burberry belt. Loving the winged dramatic eye makeup on Julia. She looks amazing, can you believe she is a 43 year old mother of 3?

The accompanying editorial photos have a glamourous feel to them; no blinding Roberts smile but instead black-and-white shots that emphasize her strong cheekbones and mile-long legs!

Soft Grey Smokey EOTN $

Hey my lovelies,
About two weeks ago I was so lucky to have an opportunity to get all glammed up for a black-tie dinner out in the countryside. The company I work for had organised two amazing ‘Away Days’ for all their employees and partners at the b-e-a-u-tiful Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire. For the black-tie dinner I chose to wear an electric blue dress so I decided on a soft grey smokey eye. Check out my FOTN:

♥ Face:
MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC20
Bourjois 10hour sleep effect Foundation
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Light
NARS Laguna Bronzer

NARS Orgasm blush (apples of my cheeks)
MAC Vanilla Pigment (lightly dusted on high cheekbones as highlighter)
MAC Charcoal brown eyeshadow to fill in brows
MAC Brow Gel (in clear) to set brows in shape

♥ Eyes:
NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (primer, all over lid)
MAC Vanilla Pigment (applied inner third of lid and lightly underneath browbone)
MAC Scene eyeshadow (padded onto the mid of the lid, blended into crease and on lower lashline)
MAC Haux eyeshadow (blended in outer V and crease to soften the grey)
MAC Carbon eyeshadow (lightly in outer corner to slightly darken outer V of crease and lower lashline)
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner pen (winged along top lash line)
MAC Lashes #33
Bourjois Effet Smoky Pencils in Ultra Black (waterline)
MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara in black

♥ Lips:
Estee Lauder Liploss in
Sugar Rush (44)

Think this is a really nice soft smokey eye! We had such a fun night :) Here are some more pictures:

I love this bright blue dress. I got it about 3-4 years ago when I was on holiday in Noosa (Australia). It’s by Zimmermann, an Australian swimwear & fashion designer. Also if you are wondering, wow roz your hair is looking really long…..well it’s because I cheated :) I recently found my old clip-in hair extensions again and decided to give my hair that little bit extra oomph and length for the night, do you like?? xoxo

Spreading my wings..

I got this cute sequined jumper from French Connection the other day and just love it!! Such a comfy jumper and the sequins give it just that little more of an edge! I wore it with jeans and nude ballet flats for a casual day out with friends.

Happy Hump Day %

Hi my lovelies,
I can definitely relate to this quote…..
Remember everyone, you are special too :)

Also wanted to share this sunset photo I took at the beach near my parents house when I was at home in the Netherlands at the end of April. Stunning right? 
Me & my friend had dinner right there while watching the sun go down….
I’m super glad it’s Hump Day today because I am counting down for my next trip away, which is this weekend, to the amazing city of lights PARIS! I hope you all have a great Hump Day! xoxo
