New lighter make-up for summer...

Today I got some highlights, so I needed a summery color for make-up as well - Bobbi Brown has great new colors:

- metallic eye shadow in velvet plum
- brow pencil in grey
- brow brush
- natural brow shaper
- extreme party mascara
- cleansing oil

Something else - this Louboutin is every girl's closet must-have - a classic with a modern edge:

Days of summer...

As summer progresses, it's always warm and humid, so it's easier to stick with salads, veggies and fish.
For dinner this pan fried sea scallops with baked paprika cream is really healthy & tasty:

In a medium pan cook sliced yellow California peppers with some salt and fresh ground pepper. When it starting to brown on the edges, add some heavy cream and stir for 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
In a little olive oil bake the scallops 3-4 minutes each side. In a blender, blend the peppers until smooth and creamy, then add some chopped cilantro. Place a small amount of this mix on a plate then put the scallops on the cream and serve with risotto, steamed veggies or a salad.

Bon Appetit!

Wear your hair...

I love to experiment with different hair styles - my hair is really long, so it's easy to create any style.
Side braids are a great alternative for bad hair days:

Audrina Patridge

Rebecca Romijn

Kourtney Kardashian

a bun or chignon works well for hot weather and can be elegant for evenings:

Kate Beckinsale

Katie Cassidy

or use hair jewels and braids for an undone style, like Blake Lively:
