On the hottest day EVER (OK no, just this year, up until now) aka yesterday, my fellow bloggers and me were invited to UPR's headquarters to be introduced to the latest and offerings of the brands represented by the agency (wow that was such a beautifully crafted sentence). We laughed, sweated our asses off, had fun and even had ourselves a quaint little barbequoi! Safe to say it was a lovely day, filled with lovely people. Lemme show you some of my favorite high points!
Some of the AMAZING shoes Sacha will be offering us come fall. The last pair has me crushin' hard.
Sabina's pretty feet
Sté's baby blues
The T-shirt I designed for Lavand. Like usual I started out with an idea and then I saw glitter and beads and ended up with something that looked like it had been eaten and then un-eaten again, if ya know what I mean. At least the scallop hem is cute? The winning design (aka not me) will actually be sold internationally, cool! I actually really love Lavand so I feel a bit sad about churning out such a crappy design :(
Stéphanie is a lot better at this.
L'Occitane launches a new fragrance each season, and the Verbena is the latest. The scent smells like a lovely citrusy sorbet with touches of lime. The verbena-citrus combination keeps this from smelling like a cleaning products, which is always a dificult feat for citrusy scents imo. My boyfriend LOVES soaps and would buy new ones every fuckin' day if I allowed it, so he'll probably pounce on that shiz.
Very yummy iced tea in cocktail glasses with lavender. I'm SO making this myself, iced tea is one of those things you always see in movies etcetera but I've never made it myself. So fancy!
Gettin my make up did at Rituals. I got lots of orange-y powder on my face, which I thought looked WHACK at first, but strangely it totally inspired me to try something new beauty-wise. I'm not tanning this year and have been religiously using sun screen. I was planning on just embracing teh pale, but the bronzing powder used by the MU artists at the Rituals booth made me look all glowy and sunkissed and healthy - I might just have to buy me some bronzer now. Hey, if it's good enough for Snookie, it's good enough for me! I'll probably pair it with reds, golds and oranges in my eyeshadow, like demonstrated by the lovely Hannah.
Just look at Sabina! This picture makes the bronzer look a lot more pronounced than it was in real life, but still! So pretty, especially with the rest of her face kept natural, apart from a strong brow. Recreating this one!
Learning to create face charts at MAC! We got to play around with alllllll of the beautiful eyeshadows, lipsticks, powders etc etc. I could seriously do this all day. My look: pink eyeliner, blue eyeshadow in the crease of the eyelid, dark eyeliner on the bottom lashline and an orange lip (bottom picture). FIERCE
The best snack on a sweaty day? FRESH FRUIT! The strawberries were di.vine. Seriously, I would get on my knees to worship them little red mofos anytime.
Time for BARBEQUOI!! These sausages were so goooood makes my mouth water all over.
Look at all my pretty ladies enjoying our evening together! It was a lovely day, THANK YOU UPR!
