CINÉMA by Yves Saint Laurent | perfume

Women and perfume. It's as complicated as women and shoes, right? I know that some of us do actually have a signature scent. I'm big into long-term relationships, but I can't do that with my perfume. It's like every year (that's wishful thinking, I know) I have a new favorite. But one thing is sure, when it comes to perfume Yves Saint Laurent always nails it. I love Parisienne and when my other half (long-term relationship!) came home with YSL's Cinéma as a gift, I was over the moon. It's a beautiful sensual scent, seductive and startling ...

5 piece french wardrobe update #2 // editor's note

Read Article →

Well, well, well. How am I going to start? First let me apologize for my absence. I was trying to figure out in what direction ktinka is heading. I think the time has come to share my thoughts with you. The thing is: My 5 piece (french) wardrobe thing is working out great. Also, I am more convinced than ever that the time for slow fashion has come. (Isn't it endless consumption that leads to exploitation of people and resources?) To limit myself gave me space and defined my style. So what's the catch? Well, the question is: Can I still be a fashion blogger then?
