“She is gifted with this really amazing presence but chooses to enhance it by pursuing what is not obvious. She is just strange. She is like that weird science project—a really annoying mix of a boy in a girl’s body with a penchant for girly things: flowers, bows, hearts. But when you talk to her, it’s like talking to your best boy friend, someone with whom you could chug beer, tell jokes… . All the girls want to be her best friend. All the boys have a secret crush on her. She’s so cool she could be intimidating, but she’s not.” - Phillip Lim on Alexa Chung.
Anonymous asked: You have great skin. What products do you use?
Thank you! It’s genetics, as my parents both have fantastic skin. My mum has never had a zit in her entire life. Unfortunately, I’m not so lucky. I get the occasional blemish, especially if I am stressed or if I consume dairy (which can mess with one’s hormones). I pretty much just leave my face alone. I have never worn foundation, powders or whatever people put on their skin - I like to let my skin breathe. I have sensitive skin so I love Cetaphil cleanser, or anything by Dr. Hauschka or Weleda. I love Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream, Kiehl’s moisturiser and Weleda Calendula baby moisturiser - that is definitely my favourite. I also swear by Kosmea rosehip oil. If I get a blemish I zap it with pure Tea Tree Oil and it’s gone the next morning. My new thing is cleansing with Muslin cloths. I also take lots of zinc tablets, which is good for your skin.
