The latest Prada Fall-Winter campaign is everything fall dressing should be. Layers of thick wool and delicate embroidery make for a lavish winter wardrobe but pairing it with what looks like rain-slicked hair brings it down a notch. Once again, Catherine McNeil serves as perfect hair-inspiration , showing off her perfect chop.

Happy Friday!

The first day of summer break is always so refreshingly unusual . It actually took some time for me to get used to not having to study during my every waking hour. I spent the day in Old Montreal , walking around aimlessly, enjoying my newfound freedom and taking the sun. Ah , summer. This editorial shot by Ward Ewen Rafik for RUSSH magazine reminds me of the sweltering , crowded streets of the city in July, muggy and yet somehow invigorating and exiting. Anaïs is simply beautiful , bare faced her features are even more prominent and lovely. The contrast of the very every-day setting and spring’s greatest pieces creating an ideal understated feeling, even making furry shoes seem completely wearable.

Maureen and I are working on a little series of photos we are shooting Sunday, I can’t wait to share them.

Here are a few images that inspire me at the moment , since I am getting my prom dress for next spring custom made and the design-creation-yada- yada-yada process starts in about four weeks. I know it’s very early , but I figured “hey , this is fun , pourquoi pas?” I am thinking a low back  , a little Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface ,in black or ivory. Also , a little Rihanna and glitter never hurt anybody…

Glow Baby Glow : Summer Skincare

20130603-220009.jpg

Although summer’s not quite here yet for me , I still have three long weeks of finals left (hurray!) , I thought I could get a little head start by showing you a few of my favorite things to get your glow on. First and foremost , always , always ,always put some SPF on. I know it’s been said three million times , but just DO IT! Now that you’ve got that settled , I like to avoid putting tinted moisturizer on in the summer, I try to keep a mostly-clean slate. Brushing a little bit of peachy-pink blush is the pièce de résistance . If all else fails , you can always count on blush. Also ,a little spritz of Evian Brumatiseur feels so envigorating , whether at the beach or in the city. Oils are something I am really fond of and this little Josie Maran Argan Oil is the best I have found, moisturizing skin and hair without a trace of greasy residue.

1. Super City Block by Clinique – blocks out impurities and pollution as well as protecting from the sun. Also , has a little bit of a tint and leaves skin looking perfectly dewy.
2. Nars Orgasm Blush- the cult classic , wakes up the most tired of complexions
3. Evian Brumatiseur -no , it’s not just water ! Leaves the skin feeling refreshed and clean.
4. Josie Maran Argan Oil – Perfect for nourishing hair , skin and even nails.

On that note , I am going to sleep now , maybe I’ll even wake up glowier…
