Be Safe. Fabulous and spf Protected.

Senteurs de Fée - fragrances from the fairies



i adore apothecaries and have shared some of my favorites from around the world during my live journal days. and its been a while since ive divulged a secret hotspot of mine.

so if in paris do drop by and say hello to the fairies of 10 rue de Sévigné.

my ultimate favorite of all parisian gifts would have to be the pure rose nectar (a distillation of Bulgaria's purest and most precious roses that offers 100% natural regeneration)

a treat for your skin staright from the fairies ;)

Hate is a strong word

If only I could find an even stronger one to sum up all that I feel for my BB bold.

Enough freezing.crashing.uncaught errors already!!

And now I'm starting to question the entire notion of being connected 24/7 .. Is there such thing as being too connected? I'm literally alwaysglued to my phone the browser..my emails ..msnger (wats up with strangers sharing their pins) I share everything with my bb budies and wudhate to have strangers lurking on my list!!

I'm leaning towards the new prada LG its soooo sleek.. Or get back into the BB bandwagon..maybe back to a curve the latest one javallin I think ismh??

If u have any thoughts on my phone dilema do share.

bon soir lovelies

Meet the bendel babes..

From right: red head huda who's always in a rush. Eats everything sans sauce and can live on fresh orange juice and margaretta pizzas only. She also makes a weird sound wen she's sleepy or has a headache.

In the centre is urs truly. Noora. She is overly obsessed with ribbons (alas the blue bow in her hair) finds extraordinary pleasure in the most ordinary of things and a super frothy chino makes her day. also was just surrounded by many pretty butterflies. Euphoric!

To the left is Alya..she is outspoken yet super mellow. Always laidback and tres chic. she usually splurges on the most coveted item du jour

Together we form the bendel brigade x

OMG: Guess the celebrity

Appart from fulfilling a lifelong dream of walking amidst a rainforest filled with thousands of tropical butterflies this afternoon.. Guess who I ran into @ the butterfly conservatory!!

Ps. I wudve taken a proper shot but after we asked him he being super sexy ..politley apologized and said he was here to spend time with his family lol


At that point I stopped taking pretty butterfly shots and quite frankly started stalking the tall man in the black hat!

Soooooo who just melted my heart with his accent (that was a hint) lol guess? :p
