Eye Candy : Girl Bud

Arizona Muse ventures on a stylish seaside jaunt to dreamy Sicily, Italy in front of Tom Craig's lens in this idyllic editorial for Vogue Russia. The light and breezy fashions she wears from Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen, Bottega Venetta, Marni, Valentino, Jill Stuart and Dior really couldn't be more perfect for this picturesque locale. These images are like a breath of fresh air.

This will be my only post this week. I haven't been feeling all that well lately and need to take a break. I've experienced a few mild episodes of vertigo and my biggest fear is that it might escalate to what I had last year which led to a state of incapacitation. I'm hoping to avoid all that again by resting and taking better care of myself. I have to limit my computer time so I probably won't be able to visit/comment on your blogs for awhile but I'll try to drop by and say hello when I can.

This photoshoot is so dreamy Rowena! Makes me want to go to Sicily. HaHa :) I love the cafe and beautiful scenery. Rowena, you take care of yourself. Don't worry about commenting doll. Your health is more important than all of this. I had a taste of Vertigo after my hurricane evacuation last year. It is indescribable. Im not sure if you have an iPhone, but I've been using it to read blogs via Bloglovin. It's hard sitting at a computer all the time. I can at least lie down sometimes. Feel better and if you need anything, let me know my friend :)

Thanks for your kind visit!

I will miss you, but your health is more important than anything else, so get as much free time as possible! I'm sending you big hugs and a lot of positive energy!

ALLIE NYC said...

Wow I hope you feel better. I had a coworker who had chronic vertigo. For her it turned it was some kind auto immune disorder where the body attacked certain components of the inner ear. My friend had it really bad too and in her case it was because she had contracted a virus that destroyed a certain part of the inner ear that plays a role in balance. She had a type of physical therapy which retrained her brain to adapt and function with out it.

A positively dreamy photoshoot! So sorry to hear that you're having bouts of vertigo again, Rowena ... yes, rest and take it easy, lovely! xoxo ~S

Jaguar Zinnias said...

These are lovely photos, but more importantly: I hope you are feeling better and GET WELL SOON!

j said...

Oh, Rowena! I was hoping you were better for a long time :( Definitely take it easy so you get back to feeling well soon!

On FBND do you mean the girl that played Dan Bi on BVS? Her clothes are horrible as is her character. I guess I don't mind all the side characters because at least you get to eventually learn why they act the way they do. I'm glad you like the show for the most part though, it sounds like you are going through it as quickly as I did.

Enjoy the recipe! I always like to try the real recipe the first time before I change everything. To me, the sweetness was very strong at first but after the sauce mellows it's less so. If you don't like things sweet, maybe try cutting down by 1/4 or 1/3. I tend to cut sugar out of things that normal people wouldn't though...

I hope you feel better soon!

Leslie said...

Take care of yourself Rowena.. I'll send well wishes your way. Vertigo is horrible and I am so sorry that you have to deal with this.

Your post is one of my favorites:) She is just stunning and I like her easy, breezy attire.


trishie said...

Eye candy indeed. So romantic and I love the look of all the dresses.

dimitri said...

The location of this shoot is so beautiful. Love these photos and these outfits are so pretty too.
It's very feminine and romantic at the same time.

Unknown said...

Hey Rowena! I'm sorry you're feeling poorly. Do take it easy until you're feeling stronger. I don't know anything about vertigo, but definitely take care of yourself. Health is the most important thing, everything else is just secondary. I know the feeling....maybe it's something to do with April because I was feeling pretty bad for a week. I had the longest tension headache which lasted just over 8 days and my back locked-up and I couldn't find a proper chiropractor here so went to see a physiotherapist which helped a little.

p.s. I completely agree about finding the right pair of glasses is hard for oneself, but I'm sure it's doubly harder trying to find the perfect fit for Rena and Ian. Last month, I bought a pair from Zenni optical online and they snapped in half yesterday morning, fortuitously, another pair I ordered from Glasseshop.com arrived a few hours later - they're not bad. I'm getting used to them. I shall probably be back surfing the Internet for another pair - as I would like to have a spare and a pair of sunglasses.

And thank you for your lovely comments - they always make me smile.
Take care sweetie! xoxo

oh, almost forgot to answer your question. i would like to leave by the end of this year if everything goes as planned. to be honest, it's truly exhausting living here.
