Crocs x The Louise Monique

I’ve recently collaborated with Crocs for the launch of their new campaign #ComeAsYouAre. The new campaign is all about being comfortable in your own skin and embracing your personal style. We’ve been given a chance to choose two pairs of Crocs, since I’m a lover of everything pink and also I wanted something that will suit the Hello Kitty blings that came with my goodie bag, I chose this pair from the Isabella collection. Nope! Not too old to wear this pink pair with some Hello Kitty blings that definitely takes me back to my childhood. For varied comfort and style, you can remove the blings or mix & match them too. This is why I love Crocs so much! I’m definitely living for this Hello Kitty cuteness. I mentioned 2 pairs, right? So I shared the love to my mom and got her a pair for Mother’s Day too! I took her to one of the flagship stores, Dubai Mall, and we were welcomed by the staff. They gave my mom suggestions on which pair …

Product Feature: Rose Glam Collection

I just received the package from Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics and I’m totally in love with it! I have been a fan of the brand even before I had the pleasure to be one of their brand ambassadors and now I am so grateful to represent the brand.<3 I’ve been sent the Rose Glam collection which is perfect for my brides! The Rose Glam highlighter is perfect for that ‘bridal’ glow. It’s sheer and buildable. It’s suitable for every bride, its shade is rosy pink and blends well on the skin. It’s perfect if you’re going for the sweet and romantic bridal look. The lipstick and gloss complete the romantic bridal look. The products are guaranteed paraben-free; both lipstick and gloss are hydrating & pigmented. It’s long-lasting and the rosy shade of pink suits all skin types. Make-up video using these products will be up soon! xx Louise Monique

Black & White with Paula

It’s fascinating how the internet and social media connect people all over the world. In our case, social media became a tool to meet up and work with like-minded & creative people. Paula is London-based model and blogger traveling to Dubai for a week, she approached me for a collab shoot and I’d be making a mistake if I say no to that beauty. For this shoot, I opted for a natural makeup that emphasizes her natural beauty. We just wanted everything authentic and as raw as it could get, in fact, these photos are edited minimally – no skin retouching done. My good friend and one of my most trusted photographers, Joem perfectly captured Paula’s personality- candid, fun and a natural stunner.

BURN

     Burn See, anyone can start a fire, darling, but how are you going to keep it alight? What will you don when it dies down? Just start another one and another and another? Do you have enough tinder, dearest, enough matches in your back pockets? Will you stay and light a cigarette, watch the embers glow as the sparks dance? Let’s roast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate in the open, under a blanket of stars. Stay with me tonight. But do me a favor will you, my love? When you leave, douse me with water, lest I be the cause of a wildfire. Bury me in the sand. Forget me. I will be okay. Just think of the trees. -Danabelle Gutierrez, & Until the Dreams Come Hair & Make-up: The Louise Monique Photography: Studio by The Louise Monique Model: Marix
