I normally only do BB cream and lipstick, but I do love a smokey eye and with the party season approaching, it’s time to practice my make up skills. Since there are thousands of them on YouTube, I just picked the one that seemed least difficult to do since you only need 2 or 3 grey shades, a black eye pencil and a few professional brushes.
The always cool Caroline de Maigret wrote a book with three besties Sophie Mas, Audrey Diwan and Anne Berest; How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are. This book isn’t a style bible, so don’t expect to do or don’t lists or revelations on how to get that je ne sais qois-hair. Instead you’ll be laughing your ass off on how they cut through the myths of French style. A great Holiday gift for fashionistas who don’t take it all too seriously.
“Fashion rules the world and Parisians rule fashion. Fine, it may not be true. But the world still needs fairy tales”
It may be Movember, but fashionable men are already done with hipster beards and moustaches. Instead, get a shave and a signature style haircut at your local barber and donate some cash to the Cancer Foundation.
The poster, shaves, haircuts and a complimentary glass of Johnnie’s are available at Schorem Haarsnijder en Barbier, Nieuwe Binnenweg 113, Rotterdam
Warning! No ladies allowed, but they can do some “complementary” shopping in the city
Days after the Alexander Wang for H&M launch and the best is still available online or in store. And by that I don’t mean the tight scuba dresses or logo mania items we saw in the campaign, but timeless well made pieces like that superheavy wool biker coat, the leather pool sliders, the leather joggers or the croc sleeve sweater. They may have the highest price tags, but they’re also the most authentic Wang and worth their investment.
