Ruffle Peep-Toe Ankle Booties

0 comments
Bu pileli guzellere bayildim :) Burnu acik ankle botlara bakinirken karsima cikti. Aslinda cok begendim ama renk konusunda biraz kararsiz kaldim. Hersey de klasik renkler olsun demiyorum tamam ama fiyati da daha uygun olsa dusunurdum almayi. Kendileri tam $475.68. Topuklarin dore olmasi ve platformdaki ince leopar desenli detay cok hos dogrusu. En cici tarafi da topuktaki ruffle. Hem cici, hem sexy! Daha ne olsun ki :)

p.s: Hala yeni yil icin hubby'e hediye alinmamistir ve ben yine bir kez daha erkeklere hediye almanin ne kadar zor oldugunu dusunmekteyim.. Any ideas? Sizler sewgililere neler aldiniz ya da aliyorsunuz?

Coastal Scents Cosmetics

0 comments




Bir suredir bu far palettelerinden order etmeyi dusunuyorum. Hangi renk tonlari henuz karar vermedim ama. Aranizda kullananlar varmi? Goz farinda aradigim en onemli ozelliklerden birisi mat olmasi, simli olmamasi. Bu nedenle kullananlarin fikirlerin oldukca yardimci olucagini dusunuyorum.

Has anyone ever used eye-shadow palettes from Coastal Scents? I've been constantly hearing about this brand and how good their palettes are so I cannot stop thinking but ordering one pretty soon :) Does anyone of you know if they come in matte as I do not quite like shimmery eye shadows.

Over Knee High Boots

0 comments

Knee high boots seem to be so in fashion nowadays. I had just gotten myself a nice pair of brown Guess brand fall boots then even without realizing I got myself into knee high boots craziness:) However, I will be passing this option this season and won't buy myself a new pair of boots as I have three pair of high black boots (two of them are heels, one is flat) and two pair of high brown boots( one is heels and suede) and 2 ankle boots and one pair of UGG. So it seems to be I'm done with boot shopping for a while :) What are your thoughts about above knee high boots? Do you like heels or flat ones? Would you prefer leather or suede ones?

Kate Hudson's boots are from Stuart Weitzman. $595.


Kate Moss.

RIP Brittany!

1 comments
I have just heard about the bad news about Britney Murphy while i was having my dinner and I was like she's just too young and pretty to pass away!! They say she was diabetic and she had other symptoms like throwing up for the last couple days, also her heart was suffering from fluttering- pardon me if I'm using in a wrong saying, but i believe that's what her doc. said on the TV. He also said that she was anorexic, i am not sure what does it have to so with her death (Oh my God!I cannot even say this word loud when she's so young!)

Most of us know her movies; Just Married, Sin City, 8 Miles. She was also localizing the animated movie Happy Feet(The Penguins)

It's also saddening to know that Murphy was raised in Edison, NJ which is very close to where I live right now, it is around the neighborhood.

Last but not least, she was such a pretty and young person to lose.. R.I.P ..

Bir sure once etrafimdakilerde gordugum buna benzer kulaklari kaplayip sicacik tutan buna benzer headband' leri cok begenmistim. Sonra bu aksam tesadufe GoJane' de buldum. Ben siperis vermeyi dusunuyorum ve yaninda da siparis vermisken birkac cift de ayakkabi almayi planliyorum. Eda ve Siu' dan cok etkilendim galiba dayanamayip ben de deneyecegim :) Sadece kalite konusunda birazcik kararsiz kaldim. Burdaki forumlari arastirdim biraz, alanlar kalite konusunda cok iyi seyler soylememisler ama Siu ve Eda'nin ayaginda da cok super duruyorlar! Hele de Siu' nun Chanel kafes seklindeki siyah beyaz bootielerini ayri br havali buluyorum. Ama bu model out of stock sanirim, artik urunle arasinda gorunmuyor. Bilmiyorum hala gorenleriniz var mi. Siz ne dusunuyorsunuz? Sizce denemeye deger mi ?

Vitrinler

0 comments
Roma'daki vitrinlerden birkac ornek. Ilk resimdeki Miu Miu(Floransa'daydi bu magaza) nun mankenine bayildim, adeta piril piril isiltisiyla goz kamastiriyordu kendileri:) Bir de pabuclari vardi ki, resimde belli olmamis, bayildim. Ortadaki resimdeki Max Mara'nin bayilasi gelinligi, duvagi dahil 2600 kusur euroya geliyordu fiyati. Ucuncu resimdeki elbiseye ise bayildim bittim yine. Rengi bir harika. En alttaki resimde de bendeniz didikliyorum magazayi:) Ama vitrindeki uzun tuylu hirka superdi dogrusu. Hatta almayi dusundum bir ara ama degmezdi, 300 euroya yakin birseydi onun fiyati da. Ama elim bos donmedim tabii:) Baska seyler aldim bende. Bu arada daha cok vitrin fotografim var ama o kadar cok fotograf var ki bulamadim aralarindan. Italyanlari cok stylish buldugumu soylemeliyim. Eee ne de olsa Avrupa. Amerika'da cok rastlanmiyor tabii boylesi zevkli stillere.

I'm Back !!

2 comments

Hello everyone,
Yes, I am back in States and resting after my little short vacation. I should say that we had such an amazing time even though it was a little short. We've been to 3 cities in 4 nights! Yes, lots of traveling but it worth it..
Roma'da Collesium'u gorduk ilk once, oyle cok fotograf cekmisiz ki.. Btw, me and hubby were so pissed off at people who only told us about how it was bad in Italy and we should not take our professional camera because of street robbery. and i did not take my purse with me(!) How could I believe such nonsense?! I am still mad as we could have taken great pics with our super duper camera that my hubby has got;) Btw he is also a professional photographer, concentrated in wedding photography.

It's A Little Vacation Time!

2 comments

Me& hubby have decided to go for a little getaway to Italia! Yep! I think it'll be perfect to spend Thanksgiving and Eid (Kurban Bayrami) in a little bit of everywhere in Italy this year. We're flying to Rome on Wednesday night and will get there on Thursday as it's about 9 hrs flight from where I live, from New York. I'm going to feel so close to my home, to Turkey, since I'll be going that far. Unfortunately we only have 4 days to spend there and then I got to get back to work. Plan is; Rome, Florence and Venice. I'd really want to see Tuscany and Sienna as well but we won't have that much time, so I'm thinking may be we'll rent a little home in Tuscany for a couple of weeks and never come back :))Who knows right? We've made such a great plan with our friend who once lived in Italy and was actually a tourist guide. It's such a great chance for us!
Any suggestions on must see spots in those three cities, or anywhere in Italy for that matter?

What I'm Reading..

It was finally time to start a new book after I finished reading Kite Runner and a few others. I stopped by at Barnes & Noble and got a new book; City of Thieves; One of New York Times Bestsellers. Siz neler okuyorsunuz bu gunlerde? Ilginizi ceken, severek okudugunuz kitaplari paylasmak ister miyiz? What do you like to read nowadays? Any book in particular? Enjoy your book! I will actually do it right now and enjoy my new book along with a warm cup of chamomile tea.
xoxo, nite nite everybody..

Today's Goodies!!

0 comments
Hey Lovers,
Today I finally got myself a nice brush set that I was looking for quite sometime. If you need a brush or to I think this is to best time to go ahead and pick yourself a nice set. They usually come 4 or 5 pieces in a set and it is cheaper than buying them individually. I am not a professional make up artist or anything but last week I got myself a foundation brush from my local drug store and it was about $12. Then I thought why not to go with a set since I needed a concealer brush also. As I am sure you all know brushes are really expensive and they are a complete investment and I mean it! Ne demisler?! You need to think of your brush as your best friend:) hahah, bu da benden olsun:) About a year and a half ago I got myself a blush brush for about $35 from Sephora and I must say that it started shedding like a kitty:) I hate to double check my face before I leave for work especially when I am in hurry in the morning. I made a little research online, and picked Lancome brand. I got it for $65 including tax. I will play with them a little first thing in the morning tomorrow:) It came in a pretty clutch and since it is a limited time turnout color is much prettier. Since that I got the set now, tomorrow I'll need to get a brush cleanser, and I'll probably go with M.a.c. (Btw, I had purchased M.a.c brush set last week but I had to return it as the material of the brushes in sets is definitely not the same as individuals)! Also, they're made in China where all the other brushes in the entire store are made in Japan. Go figure. Pics do not closely show the eye brushes, sorry I took the pics after midnight:)
In order from left to right: Blush/powder brush, foundation brush, eye shadow brush( this is a two side brush that also lets you apply your eye shadow on your creases),concealer brush, blending brush.



I also got an under eye concealer for my dark circles under eye area.This is actually my first try out of this brand. Shu Uemura. I could not resist more as I've been hearing very nice things about this brand. All their products are made in Japan. I really like the texture, and the coverage in store but I will let you know how it goes in time. Its container a bit tiny for the price though, it's $25. What's your favorite brand of concealer? I would really love to hear about your thoughts as I know that it is really hard to pick a good one that gives you all in one!

M.A.C Fix Plus(+)

0 comments
The other night I stopped by at M.A.C store. Again! Can not resist :) I had to have Fix + after the class I attended this past weekend. So, I got it! It has caffeine( as well as so many vitamins and minerals such as green tea, cucumber, chamomile) in it so it basically should kind of wake your skin up in the morning. I started using it every morning after putting my moisturizer on. You can also spray it on your make up to settle it and give it a natural finish look. This is how I'm going to start using in future as it says in the reviews of the product that it makes the make up long lasting. Then again, I do not wear that much of a make up everyday, just a mascara and concealer under my eyes as I have dark circles under eyes.

M.A.C Cosmetic Make Up Class-1

3 comments


Yaayy!! I was eventually able to attend one of their classes this weekend, on Saturday. I had to say no every time they invited me as they offered them only during the week and I was not able to go since I work on the weekdays. The class get started at 3.pm and ended around 5.30. It was actually more concentrated than I thought it would be! What an amazing chance for me. It was my first time and i'm pretty sure there will many more if they continue to offer them on weekends. The make up artist was pretty good; he's been in make up industry for over 16 yrs, and he was involved in television, film make up industry for a lot of celebrities such as Pink, Mariah Carey, Jon Bon Jovi and a lot more.. I took lots of notes and I will be talking about those, so stay tuned :)


Giovanna Battaglia-Such a great sense of Style !!

0 comments


I'm sure you have seen or heard about her before. Italy Vogue's fashion editor, Giovanna Battaglia. She also used to be a model for Dolce & Gabbana. She has such great taste about clothing I think. I love her look as she does not only stick to one type of style. She can combine elegant, chick and casual looks all at the same time. She's in her (my favorite) sandals in above picture. I would not even think for a second to buy those shoes( if only I can afford of course :) if I ever see them, so please please let me know if you know where to get them from.

Asagidaki resimde uzerinde olan elbiseyi de Bihter'in bir bolumde giydigi elbisesini animsatti, sanirim ayni tarz, krem renginde bir BCBG elbiseydi, hatta o da siyah opak coraplariyla kombine etmisti. Btw, 2010 yazi ruffle/ firfirli modeller cok moda olucak, simdiden benden soylemesi ..

Happy Sunday..

Mariebelle New York

2 comments
Another must see spot in New York; Mariebelle. This is a cute chocolate boutique in the heart of New York and also known with their hot chocolate and shakes. Looks like a great place to grap a drink or lunch. I also checked their menu and they have a great variety of selection. I'm planning to go there for brunch on the weekend. Check it out if you're nearby..

Kerastase Hair Products

2 comments
I think that Kerastase is one of the best, actually I would say it's the best hair product brand on the market. I've been using their shampoo's( well I actually only tried for once, and was not so happy about it) may be it was not the right one for me. I use their masks, especially every once a week after I get my highlights as the hair gets really weakened after so many processes( reflection series) I also use power shots ( serums) that they have in small bottles. They come in different type of varieties; for dry hair types, for damaged hair to give more volume, for curly hair and etc. I use the ones that reflects your color and gives a little bit of shine once every month or two. I am usually prettly lazy when it comes to apply the mask though:) With mask, you have to put it on the hair after you wash and towel try your hair and then you need to wait about 10-15 to work it through your hair. Yesterday I got a leave in heat protective mil from resistance series to use before blow drying or styling my hair. I also use a heat protector spray from CHI before styling- on dry hair- but this could be used on wet damp hair as desired. This also fortifies the hair after so many chemical treatments. I have not started using it yet. I will post the end results..
Where can you find Kerastase products?
  • Hair Salons
I usually get mine from Ebay or other beauty web sites depending on where it is at a better price.

Highlights!!

0 comments


I've been thinking about long enough to do a little change with my hair color. Eventually, it is done today :)) I just came from the hair salon which is like 1 hr,10 min driving distance from where i live. I know it sounds a little ridiculous but it is what it is! You do not have that many options in here( even if you do, you don't really want to risk it) like some of you have there in Turkey( my lovely , luxurious country :)) So, I have had highlights for quite a few years, like since I was 18. For those, who's going to say "so how old are u now? " I am 26. I actually wanted to get the Jessica Alba's hair color in below image but I can't really say it is exactly the same. Mine is better looking p)) No, joking. I love Jessica Alba, and whatever she does she does it the best! However, I still do not get how she's capable of changing her hair color every other week :)) Yeah, that's a capibility!! Anyways, I will take a picture of my new hair soon and post it. Hope, I will like it better in time as it looks lighter than what I usually have and it just looks a little weird to me :)

Weekend Goodies:)

0 comments

I stopped by The Body Shop store today after a nice breakfast @ IHOP. Finally I wanted to give a chance to their body butters. I've been thinking about them for a while, though thought that it would be too oily as I don't have that much of a dry skin. However, I tried on the tester in the store and and fell in love with it the very same moment! I got the Moringa frangrance. It smells so delicious. I'm sure it'll give me the perfect moisturizing for my body throughout the freezing season. There was a special so I got 2 of them! I loved both Moringa& Olive fragrances, so I got one for me, one for my love, sister.
Another nice product that I like is Johnson's baby oil.I put it all over my body as soon as I dry off after my shower since my skin (most skins) can go very scaly and flaky after getting wet. Remember, moisturizers work best after you've exfoliated as the cream can really get into your skin.

Bedrooms-Headboards

0 comments
Shortly after my post on bedrooms, now it is time to search for headboards. Not that I'm planning to change my bedroom furniture( I wish that I could:) but to have an idea for now. I am actually thinking about starting little by little by not spending too much. I may get small accessorial pieces to lighten up the look of my room. Headboard is one of them. I have been thinking about it for a while. Prices range anywhere between about $300- $700 if you are looking for something like the ones in below images. My fave is definitely the #2! Its fabric is velvet, and its color is gorgeous. I also really like the decorative pillows on the bed, especially the one which is made of sheep skin. Since those are covers only, pillow is not included, you can have them for between $50 to $100 for each.
I also want to get some lighting which I could use on the wall as opposed on the side tables. The ones that I currently have are from Ikea. I actually still like them but can never say no to a little change, right! :)

That Extra Half an Inch

0 comments
Yorucu ve yagmurlu bir gunun ardindan nihayet evimde olmanin verdigi huzurla kahvemi yudunlarken kisa bir update.. "Posh" un kitabini bir sure once okumaya baslamistim. Baslarda gereksiz ve her yerde olan fikirlerle bu kitabi doldurmus oldugunu dusunup hatta Beckham bile kitap yazdiysa ben bile kendi kitabimi yazarim demistim :)Ama kitabin fashion uzerine olmasi nedeniyle karsi koyamadim tabii. Giyim ve makyaj tekniklerinden, bakim ve hediye/ alisveris fikirlerine kadar bircok pratik bilgiyi bir arada barindiran bir kitap. Hatta haftalardir almayi planlayip bir turlu alamadigim Dermalogica Eye Cream imi de boylece bu hafta almis oldum. Beckham da kitabindan Dermalogica urunlerinden ne kadar memnun oldugundan bahsedince dayanamayip gidip aldim kremimi. Bu arada 23-25 li yaslarda goz kremi kullanmaya baslamanin uygun oldugu soyleniyor. Eee since I will hit my 26 in a couple of months I thought I better start using it .

Buyrun bakalim; bakanin gozunu gonlunu acan- bana gore- birkac yatak odasi ornegi. Bana hangisini begendim diye soracak olursaniz, hepsini aslinda. Ama en cok ucuncu resimdeki odayi diyebilirim. Hep boydan boya cam olan balkonlu bir yatak odamin olmasinin hayalini kurdum. Manzarasi olmasa dahi, uyandigimda bakabilecegim onu acik bir balkonum olmasini cok isterim. Baktim olmuyor, en kotu ihtimalle yemek odasini bosaltip yatak odasi yapacagim :) Heheh
