Juergen Teller: Woo

SHOW AND TELLER: Juergen Teller’s photographic skills are set to be lauded at an exhibition called “Juergen Teller: Woo” at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London.

Focusing on the last 10 years of his career, the show will feature images from his commercial body of work, including the Marc Jacobs campaign image that featured Victoria Beckham’s legs emerging from a Marc Jacobs shopping bag. There will be intimate family portraits taken in Erlangen, his German home town, and in Suffolk, as well as his celebrity portraits of faces like Bj√∂rk and Kurt Cobain.

Images of Kate Moss and Lily Cole appear in his editorial oeuvre, and there’s a reading room wallpapered with his pictures.

The exhibition, which opens with a nude triptych of Dame Vivienne Westwood, opens on Wednesday and runs until March 17.

Ahhhh! I love Juergen Teller and I would kill to see this show! The video above is not part of the show, but just a little fun bonus from the 90's.

Living All Together

Decorating for me is a such fun, but sometimes overwhelming experience.  I feel the same way about dressing, and the overwhelming part comes to play because I love everything. Modern, vintage, masculine, feminine, trendy, traditional, hard, soft, natural, colorful, old, new, I love it all.  I feel that the only way to satisfy my likings is to throw it all together and see what happens. Sometimes it works and sometimes it is an epic failure. I am in my twenties and still growing into my decor style. I will sometimes add or edit things into my home, but I live in a rental and I'm kind of broke so it is hard to decorate when you know one day you will transition into a more grown up and permanent situation. I hope to achieve a nice, effortless mixture of different pieces like the pictures above when I have my own home and the ability to do whatever I want with a grown-up budget.

Lashes and Nails

Does anyone else have this problem?  It's midday and I look in the mirror to see what looks like a drug addict or someone in desperate need of sleep starring back at me. It is not a junkie or an insomniac in the reflection, it is just me. I can understand my mascara running after a hard night of partying, but why is it that I am left with raccoon eyes after only three hours of applying my eye make-up? Because of this problem, along with itsy eyelashes, I am constantly looking for that miracle mascara. I have tried everything from Chanel to Cover Girl and I have liked the results of some, but I can't say that I have a mascara that I love. Sad, isn't it?
 When my sister-in-law Christy was in town, I was venting to her about my under eye debris and a month later darling Christy sent me Sephora's Lash Stash including eleven different brands of mascara, eyelash primer, and a pair of false lashes! I am still finishing the tube of mascara I had when I received my b-day package, but I can't wait to put each of these mascaras to the test. I also plan on creating graphs and charts on the performance of each mascara, because collecting data is fun way to incorporate education in my beauty routine. I'll let you know the results when I'm done, but that may be a while because I keep mascara forever ( I know that's bad) and I have eleven to go thru.

As far as my nails go, I decided to get the Sensationail starter kit because I love manicures, but hate paying $50.00 for gel manicures. I have used it once and I am pretty pleased with the results. My manicure lasted a solid week which is good for me, because once I get the slightest chip, I will go crazy and peel the rest of the polish off. Next time, I will add another coat of color and they should survive longer. Hooray for new nail technology!
