SKYY_SATC2_Bottle

SKYY Vodka is releasing a limited Edition bottle created by no other than the fantastic Sex & the City Costume designer herself, Patricia Felid ! This is a first for the company to release a themed designed bottle and will coincide with the release of the movie in June 2nd.

“So many of Sex and the City’s most stylish moments have been when the ladies were out in Manhattan,
dressed to the nines, bonding over fun cocktails,” says Field. “SKYY Vodka has always been a brand with
style, so I was thrilled to partner with them to create something special that celebrates those special ‘cocktail couture’ moments that truly are the essence of SKYY and Sex and the City.”

They have also released some fabulous cocktail recipes to be made with the Vodka, all Inspired by the 5 main characters.

Hair Tutorial- Oscars Inspired Messy Up-do / Bun for day or night

http://www.youtube.com/user/Madamebfatale

During the awards season I noticed a few messy up-do’s. This is my version of it.

This can easily be worn day or night and is best achieved with dirty hair, (as with most up-do’s). I would recommend  using a hairspray to finish, I just seem to be losing everything lately!

This style can be as neat or as messy as you would like and is a great hairstyle to try if you don’t have much time or need to wash your hair but want a ‘pulled together’ look.

If you don’t have hair extensions to add volume to your do you can easily use a rolled up stocking with the toe cut out and thread your ponytail through it. Or you can use a rat.

The makeup worn in this video is the Napoleon Perdis Walter Runway Inspired look.

The shine spray I used was by Evo that was sent to me, I do have to say its lovely. It smells like watermelon candy!
