Savage Beauty: The Masterpieces of McQueen

mcq1I’m so tired! But also really excited about this so I hope what I write makes sense. This was honestly one of the most insane experiences of my entire life. Last Friday night, me and my mum went to London for a 3am showing of the sellout exhibition Savage Beauty. It chronicles a lifetime of work by designer Alexander McQueen from his graduate collections, to shows for Givenchy and his own line.mcq7It was beautifully categorised and the music helped to add a strange atmosphere to the exhibition giving the space a sinister feel like many of McQueen’s collections. The experience was a little bit unnerving but breathtaking at the same time and thoroughly conveyed the persona of the designer.mcq8

I seriously wish I had enough money to buy couture clothes like this!

Cimetière du Père-Lachaise

p1Bonjour! I’m in Paris right now for my friends birthday and we went on the most amazing walk around Cimetiere du Pere-Lachaise yesterday. I took a few quick pictures on my phone that I thought would be good to share, it’s one of my favourite places and is so beautiful. Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf and many other famous and privileged names are buried here so it’s definitely worth a look around, even it’s maybe a bit morbid.p2p3p4

A scent rediscovered – YSL Parisienne

yslOn a recent beauty clear out I found a bottle of YSL Parisienne hiding in a makeup bag and after not using it for a long time I have fallen in love with it all over again. I don’t normally like very sweet floral scents but the violet, blackberry, peonies and damask rose is blended with sandalwood and musk for a much deeper and richer scent. It smells very glamorous but in an understated way and the scent last forever. It’s definitely a classic even if it hasn’t been around for too long and I love the packaging, so if your looking for a new scent I would highly recommend.
