    A beautiful beautiful weekend and maybe birthday celebrations? Belated lovely weekend to you and yours Ms Glamorous.

  • That model’s two-tone hair is perfection. I am truly, madly, deeply envious of her and her colorist.


  • The second pic is amazing!!

    I was wondering where could i get one of those phones? It’s so cool!

  • I am just in love with your blog, it’s like a mini-mind vacation at my computer!

  • love the last one!! happy weekend!!

  • First, I adore that model’s hair color, especially with the dress… I wouldn’t even know how to replicate it – copper waves? It’s so warm and still elegant – love it!!
