Roger Vivier – Stiletto Maestro

To be carried by shoes, winged by them to wear dreams on one’s feet is to begin to give reality to one’s dream.
– Roger Vivier

Roger Vivier was a French shoe designer. He’s credited for designing the first stiletto that captivated a lot of women and even men.

For 10 years, Vivier worked as a designer at Christian Dior.

His designs won acclaims around the world and for 35 years he became the master shoe designer predating Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin.

His designs were a work of art that they were compared to the famed Faberge eggs.

The Queen of England wore a Vivier original on her coronation.

Red Lipstick – Red Lippy Brigade


Red lipstick is my favourite. ¬†Somehow it is the only shade that makes me look alive. ūüėČ

I tried wearing the nude lipstick when I went home to the Philippines.  My mother was forced to opine that I looked like death warmed up.  That is my mother, she never mince her words.

Apparently if you are wearing red lipstick, you should minimize the eye¬†make up especially during the day, otherwise you’ll look like a clown.

Vice versa, strong eye make up would require paler lipstick.

Anyway the Cannes 2013 film festival has brought celebrities in their droves to beguile us with their most engaging red pouty look.

Awards ceremonies usually bring in the usual suspect of divine beauties wearing the lippies in various shades of red.

Here are the celebrities who are members of the Red Lippy Brigade


Did you know?

Red lipstick will make your teeth look whiter and your skin to appear clearer. Just make sure the lipstick is applied neatly without smudges and most importantly, not half of it on your teeth! ūüôĀ

Bio-Oil – the Lowdown

Bio Oil

I saw an advert for Bio-oil on telly a couple of years ago. I tried it, I liked it and I have been using it ever since.

My husband saw me using it religiously and noticed the difference it has done to my skin. He has also started using it. I do not only use it on my face, I also apply it to any dry spot or somewhere where there is a scar.

It is not a miracle cure but it does a pretty good job in rehydrating dry skin.

I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

We buy the largest size which retails at around £19.00 and it lasts for months and months.  Good value for what it does to your skin.

It is a skin hero.  Something to use when you are tired and weary and would just like to clean your face and just slap a bit of skin care and hoping that you wake up with soft, hydrated skin.
