One thing is sure: I must be lucky. Attending the Chanel fashion show which took place at the Grand Palais on the 8th of March and sitting in front row only you must have a kind of good luck, I guess. Actually, I knew that the runway spectacle would be special, that’s why I booked a last minute flight ticket and landed in Paris a few days before the show. And it was the first time I attended a catwalk in Paris Fashion Week and hope that more occasions like that will bring me back to Paris, even if I have to look for a last minute flight ticket desperately.

I saw the runway through my Canon lenses where models such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Soo Joo Park among 91 others walked in front of my lenses wearing pink tweed suits, bowler hats, leather boots, biker gloves and Chanel pearls. Besides, I stumbled upon Pharrell Williams, Willow Smith and Grace Coddington, and personally met a very special girl from Australia, Nicole Warne.

I especially loved taking photos of the venue before and after the show: white carpets, beige walls, golden chairs, mirrors everywhere, a very impressive glass ceiling above us and the perfect light for photography. And what about the make up? I was impressed to find out that the quilted eye makeup was inspired by the iconic leather bag. That was really impressive and need to find a way to do that on my eyes too.

The CHANEL fashion show would be described in one word as mesmerizing and here, on The Viennese Girl blog, we only live for mesmerizing moments.♥

Golden shiny mornings here in Vienna are made of pancakes with Nutella, a bunch of Xmas postcards and jewellery pieces from Fabrini.

Last Friday I found myself in a very cozy place, called Gelateria La Romana in the 7th district, talking about Christmas holidays and Christmas presents while taking photos with Tony Gigov. The Xmas postcards that you see are photos of mine that I printed and intend to send as Xmas postcards to some special people this season…

I just wish of more golden shiny mornings like this one…♥

London is the ultimate shopping experience, well-known for its boutiques, luxury brands, vintage stores and markets. Even though I didn’t visit London for shopping, I ended up buying a pink bag from Harrods, a skirt from old Spitalfields market, a parka from Primark and a floral dress from Camden Town. Best things are purchased when you have no intention to buy something, but find something super cute in front of you and just can’t resist.
In my photos below you can see my shopping experience: from luxury stores to vintage markets, I liked them all. What I believe is that you can find a fantastic bag which costs 1000 euro and a fantastic bag of 20 euro. Probably they will not be the same quality, but they can be both beautiful. I mean, it’s not the price that matters. Clever shopping is when you find beautiful things for good prices.

Personally, I am smitten with Charlotte Olympia, Kate Spade, Tommy Hilfiger, Massimo Dutti and Forever 21.

Hello Kitty ring

At the beginning, it was only a cute idea. I needed a pencil and paper to draw down my idea. Then I took a piece of silver, and cut it to the shape of Hello kitty’s face. Cutting it was a bit scary, I would say, I was afraid that I would cut my finger throughout as that would’ve been no fun at all. Then Daniel helped me to finish it and gave it the last fine touch. We did first a silver sample but the final masterpiece is made of gold. I told him that we should keep it simple, the simple the best. That means no diamonds on it, nothing.
When the Hello Kitty ring was ready, I uploaded the photo on Instagram and it received many likes and a good feedback. You can find this and other fine art jewellery pieces at Daniel’s jewellery shop in Spiegelgasse 11, 1010 Vienna.

Pandemonium

Photo by Jakob Reinfeldt

Well, after many grey cold days, sun came back to the Viennese sky yesterday. Jakob, who happens to be a talented photographer and a friend of mine, and I didn’t miss the chance to have a walk around the city. He grabbed his fantastic photo camera (which I am dreaming of having the same) and we snapped some beautiful pictures.

What I especially enjoy very much every time I write this blog is that I have to give a name to each post. I call this one Pandemonium because it is like an explosion of colours. The first photo of this post could have been taken somewhere in Brazil or Murano in the Venetian Lagoon, but no, it was taken in the centre of my beautiful Vienna.♥

My first handmade art creation

Don’t put me in an office where I should work from 9.00 to 17.00 (in the best case), I don’t want to be miserable and I know that it is going to be like being in the prison. I have done this in the past and I know that it doesn’t work well with me. Don’t tell me that I have to get up at 08.00 to be at work at 09.00, I am not an early bird, I work better in the afternoon. Let me be creative, let me be a free spirit, a freelance writer, a photographer, a fine arts jewellery designer or something like that. I am ready to work hard only for the things that I like!

I consider myself lucky and honored enough to be given the chance from Daniel to design a jewellery and turn it into reality with his valuable help and useful instructions.

I want to share with you my amazing experience. Have a look at the photos below and please leave some comments, it is important for me to know what do you think about it!

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for even more amazing work!

My first handmade art creation

Are diamonds a woman’s best friend?

I don’t know to what to tell you, but it was nice to try some diamond rings today. I had a very nice day with my Spanish friend, Cristina. We met in the centre and went to eat something while sitting outside (like everybody in Vienna where the weather is rarely sunny like today) we snapped funny photos (she has a new photo camera and I became so jealous of it) until that moment, while standing in front of a shop window, I saw someone who was smiling to us from inside. I said to Cristina without giving it a second thought, “let’s go inside!” and this is how we met Daniel.

Daniel Cazon welcomed us in his jewellery shop in the heart of the Vienna and made us try some valuable jewellery items. He was kind enough to show us his collection and let us take as many pictures as we wanted. The most exciting thing is that if you visit his shop Cazon, you will be able to see how they make the jewellery live. If you pass from the center of Vienna, don’t miss the chance to meet Daniel and try his beautiful shining creations.

Looking at this beautiful items a crazy thought popped into my mind: I would like to create my own collection: Silia’s collection. And I even know what name I would give to my collection! Crazy but true!!

Here are the photos that I made for you:

What is in my beauty case?

What is in my beauty case?

What is in my beauty case?

I received one email and I was asked about the make up products I use and I thought I should write about it. Well, I don’t like make up that much, I’d rather say I avoid it most of the times, especially when I have to wake up early, I don’t feel like putting a lot of make up on my face. And I believe in natural beauty…!

Nevertheless, I will tell you about some products I use:

As a day cream, I use the “Make a difference plus +” from Origins, every day after I clean my face. Breakfast and day cream go together. This cream keeps my skin soft and hydrated. I first bought this product in Manhattan and fortunately I can find it in Vienna as well.

I am quite pale, so I believe I need a little bit of color on my cheeks. For that purpose, I use the Crème de blush No 2 from Yves Saint Laurent.

Fortunately not all beauty products are expensive. My favorite Volum’ Express Mascara from Maybelline is friendly to our wallets.

And now I am going to reveal my favorite lipsticks….
The No 97 Incandescente from Chanel…so sexy, hot red, french and classy! And the “Im-Passioned” from MAC cosmetics. I love them both. Two more lipsticks that I like are from Yves Saint Laurent: Rouge Volupte No 13 and No 11.

This products fit my colors and skin perfectly, and that doesn’t mean they fit you as well. Try them before you buy them.

Thank you for asking and never forget that happy girls are the prettiest girls and that all you need is a spontaneous smile!♥
