Gold jewelry is everything, especially gold watches. My whole life I have been wearing white gold, fake white gold and silver, as in my mind, yellow gold jewelry was dated and for older women. It is mainly because of the design I think. You actually couldn’t find a nice ring or bracelet that didn’t look fake! Contrary to fake white gold pieces, yellow gold ones were poorly made. Thanks God, there was a great progress made in that field and dozens of affordable brands offer fashionable and well made accessories.

And big thanks to my husband who surprised me a few months ago, when he bought me this Michael Kors watch I have been dreaming off for about 4 years I think! Love the old school design that reminds me of the old models from Rolex.

Good night,

70s vibe 1For today’s post I wanted to do something different, create artsy pictures to avoid visual monotony and surprise my readers with bold and unusual images of my beautiful partner, Lena.
Basically, add a bit of spice in between outfit posts. Thank you Photoshop for existing and making it all possible! ^_^
I don’t know how I initially came up with the idea to create a 1970s-inspired makeup look but I knew that it had to be bright as well as eye-catching and what a better era than the Seventies.
The result is now live and you can finally see what has been going on inside my head. Through these images dear readers, I am sharing with you my ideas, vision and imagination in hope that you will appreciate the work that has been done, and come back for more tomorrow, and the day after that … ^_^

Have a beautiful Thursday,

Xo, G.

BRACELETS 1I am completely obsessing over these gorgeous, sparkly cuff bracelets that we shot during our weekend getaway at the beach. The light was stunning, the landscape breathtaking and Lena’s swimsuit worked perfectly with the colors of the bracelets. I can definitely say that all the conditions were met for a perfect photo shoot.

Enjoy the pictures guys,

LOFFIE SEMI JOIAS 1For some women, perfume and makeup are the two main things they never leave the house without, me it’s jewelry. My old watch and my engagement/wedding rings are like glued on my hand and I don’t like taking them off or replacing them with other jewelry however when it comes to necklaces and earrings, it is the total opposite.
This gorgeous necklace created by the fabulous Marielli from Brazilian jewelry brand Loffie Semi Joias is a timeless masterpiece that I was saving for a special occasion to wear with a nice elegant outfit but being impatient as I am, I couldn’t wait but wear it on the beach this summer to show it off a bit. And I can tell that some people have noticed me either because of my gorgeous necklace or because they couldn’t figure out what the hell was I doing with my camera, either way the end result makes it all worth it.

If you enjoyed this post, also check out  Loffie Jewelry part 1 and Loffie Jewelry part 2 to see more great designs from the brand.

Have a nice weekend guys,

LOFFIE JEWELRY – PART 2

LOFFIE JEWELRY PART 2 FPTLAnd here comes the second part of my collaboration with #Loffie Semi Joias, a jewelry brand from Brazil that creates amazing fine jewelry. This time I am showing you the pieces the jewelry founder and creator Marielli Oliveira Tinoco has offered me and that I am totally in love with.
I actually loved every and each of the jewels she brought to Paris, but with this pair of earrings – and a matching necklace that I haven’t used yet but certainly will when the opportunity arises – it was love at first sight. It is so my style. When I go for elegant jewelry, I like it quite statement particularly when it comes to earrings for the simple reason that I want to avoid overdoing it when dressing for a formal event, and by going only for one piece of jewelry that is quite bold and eye-catching, I know I am doing it right.
Can’t wait to wear these treasures with a gorgeous glamorous dress! Can’t wait!

When we talked with Marielli about her creations, she explained that she got inspired by the London Eye when designing the earrings I picked and when it started to snow the other day, I came up with the idea to shoot them in nature before using them in a more ‘appropriate’ elegant outfit because they also remind me of a snow flake. There is no doubt that these earrings are made for me!

I just have one funny comment to make about how I felt after seeing the pictures. Doesn’t the shoot remind you of the movie Dumb and Dumber? I am so Mary Samsonite with my short hair, oversized coat and snow boots! Ahh ^_^ …

Hope you’ll enjoy the pics guys!
Have a nice one.

Comme je l’ai annoncé plus tôt dans la journée, l’article d’aujourd’hui est consacré à ma collaboration avec la marque de bijoux brésilienne Loffie Semi Joias dont j’ai eu la chance d’essayer plusieurs pièces lors de mon dernier voyage à Paris.
Après avoir vu quelques photos de ces bijoux élégants et très tape-à-l’oeil, j’avais hâte de les voir et les tenir dans mes mains et surtout les essayer! Ce n’est pas tous les jours que j’ai l’occasion de porter des bijoux aussi beaux. Et une fois que je les avais en face de moi, j’étais éblouie par les pierres précieuses de couleurs différentes et finement détaillées. C’est du vrai travail d’artiste.
Non seulement Loffie est une marque de bijoux de luxe mais aussi une marque qui offre des pièces très audacieuses et uniques ainsi que d’autres plus classiques et intemporelles. Entre les boucles d’oreilles chandelier, des bagues à trois larges perles ou en forme de corset et des bracelets ‘Pandora’ fantaisie, tous les goûts se trouvent à une seule adresse http://www.loffiesemijoias.com.br

Toutefois ce n’est pas tout! La deuxième partie de Loffie Jewelry arrive bientôt et cette fois-là je vous présenterai mes deux pièces préférées de la collection et que j’ai eu la chance d’emporter avec moi! Quelle chanceuse… ^_^

As I have mentioned earlier, today’s post is dedicated to my collaboration with the Brazilian jewelry brand Loffie Semi Joias by which I have been chosen to try some of their beautiful pieces of jewelry during my last trip to Paris.
After seeing some pictures of the elegant and eye-catching pieces a few weeks ago, I have been looking forward to see them in person and hold them in my hands but above all wear them! It is not everyday that I have the occasion to wear such beautiful jewelry. And once I got them in front of me I was stunned by the colorful and finely-detailed gemstones. There are such masterpieces.
Not only is Loffie an expensive-looking jewelry brand but it also offers statement jewelry with unique design as well as classic and timeless pieces. From chandelier earrings, a three-pearls ring or a corset ring to ‘Pandora’ fantasy bracelets you’ll find something for everyone at http://www.loffiesemijoias.com.br

But that’s not all! The second part of Loffie Jewelry is coming soon and I will present you my two favorite pieces of jewelry that I had the chance to take home with me! Lucky me… ^_^

TULI

TULI WOMENTULI : LOOK GOOD. DO GOOD.

Fighting poverty never looked so good with this line of handmade jewelry that provides long-term jobs to impoverished women in Uganda.
Tuli’s products feature beads that are rolled from tiny strips of salvaged paper, hand painted, and then handcrafted into a one-of-a-kind accessory. Every purchase gives money directly to the Ugandan woman who made your product.
By bringing an international market to a group of impoverished women living in a country with few job opportunities, Tuli fights poverty using business and fashion. Rather than giving temporary aid to Uganda, Tuli works to create lasting, steady jobs for its partners.
Using the income they earned from Tuli, Ugandan women are able to feed their children, send them to school, obtain housing, and save for their future. Having a job empowers them to take charge of their lives and aim beyond their immediate needs.

paper-bead-makingHere are as well three summer outfits featuring two Tuli necklaces and one bracelet that you can find on www.tulistore.com

Together we make the difference.
Take care guys,
