JBC x O.P.I collaboration – Summer 2013

27 May

Dear readers,

The sun is finally shining through here in Belgium, which means it’s time to bring out your summer dress or – hell why not- go buy a whole new outfit to celebrate the long awaited good times.

For me personally, whenever the sun starts to shine, I feel the urge to buy some new nail polishes to accessorize with the new trend colours, as jewellery is personally not my thing (mostly as I’m the clumsy type who manages to get stuck to EVERYTHING with my necklace, rings or bracelets). As nail polishes dont ‘stand in my way‘ as I like to call it, they are my perfect partner in crime to accessorize with every outfit.

That’s why I’m such a big fan of the new collaboration between the Belgian retail brand JBC and my alltime favorite nail polish brand O.P.I.

JBCxOPI

JBC has selected 6 fashionable O.P.I. shades which fit perfectly with the new JBC Spring/Summer 2013 collection, ranging from bright white or soft pink  to even a deep purle tint. These 6 colors will be available from May 29th in every JBC store in Belgium.

The 6 colors which are part of the JBC x O.P.I collab all have very original names, something that O.P.I is renowed for:

Are we there yet? – Bright coral

Dating a Royal – Deep blue

Pamplona Purple – Deep purple

Funny Bunny – Bright white

GoodHardFind – Bright pink

Malaysian Mist – Soft pink

What’s your favorite shade? I’m going for Malaysian Mist !

With love, Nona

Outfit post – SPRING TIME

14 Apr

Dear readers,

it’s so good to be back on the blog after our winter hibernation, which was primarily caused by my new busy job I started last Fall and an unfortunate illness which struck me down for about a month.

But -just as the first flowers start to blossom and the birds start to sing- I thought it was time to present you with some brand new outfit posts  & exciting new seasonal previews again, starting from today.

I personally always get a sort of subconcious need to buy new shoes when I spot the first signs of spring… The (shopping) result? Already 3 pairs of new summer shoes in the last month (mostly wedges, this really is a must-have this season, comfortable and elegant all at once). … Probably this is not the end of my spring madness, as the highsummer collections are still to hit the shops in a few weeks.. Uhhh owwww!

For pictures of the new shoes you’ll still have to have a bit of patience (Yes, I know, I am such a tease), but I do have something else to show you : my brand new haircut and colour !

Parka – ONLY / Printed blouse – Steps / Mint green tracktop – H&M / Blue skinny – ONLY / Clutch – Pieces / Fascinator hairband – Accessorize / Ballerinas – Diesel

 

Nail colours (fromleft to right) :

Rimmel – Blue my mind / Estée Lauder – C6 Fuchsia / O.P.I. – Green -wich Village / Rimmel – Sky High / O.P.I. – Need Sunglasses?

I decided to loose about 10 to 15 cms of my hair, as I thought the time was right for a shorter more edgy look. The hair colour is a very bright copper tint, normally the colour is a bit more dark.

The flip side of the new colour is that I now look a bit paler than I was before, but the first serious rays of sunshine will take care of that problem soon enough.

As I was feeling ‘creative’ last week, I also decided to paint my finger nails in 5 different colours, it gives me a happy feeling every time I look at it and the comments have been nothing but positive, so I think I will try this again with a few new nail laquer coloursI’m trying to find at the moment.

So what do you think about my new haircut, do you like it? What haircut or colour would you like to try out this season?

With love, Nona
