Noon in De Pijp

One of my favorite neighborhoods in Amsterdam is De Pijp. It is one of the hip, cool areas that hosts the Albert Cuyp market every day and has numerous cafés, restaurants and bars to hang out. Especially, the Sarphati Park is a nice place to enjoy the sun and maybe have a pick-nick with delicacies you just shopped at the food market around the corner!

Make-Up Essentials

However, we both like to work some small magic with these essential products. Here comes our must-have list: The L’Oréal Skin Perfection cream has a small amount of highlighting particles in there, giving your complexion an instant glow. The Lancôme Miracle Cushion is fresh, handy and easy to use. Simply by pressing the sponge onto the cushion you will get the product. You can choose how much make up you want, depending on how strong you press. And last but not least the Aquasource CC Gel from Biotherm is the perfect day routine. Smooth and easy to apply it will give you an instant glow and you look fresh and healthy without make-up.

Culture in Amsterdam: La Dame Aux Camélias

Going out to see a Ballet performance is one of our favorite things to do together. So of course we couldn’t miss the beautiful performance of “La Dame Aux Camélias” by the Het National Ballet. The performance was breath-taking, we were so captivated by the exceptional choreography, which displayed very powerful, emotional moves. Apart from this, the National Opera and Ballet of Amsterdam is an extraordinary building with a view on the canals at sunset. Boots – Zara Jacket – H&M Bag – Louis Vuitton

Lacoste Blogger Workshop

Some days ago, we were lucky enough to be invited to the Lacoste blogger event in Frankfurt am Main, where their male perfume collection “Eau de Lacoste” was presented. We had an exceptionally lovely day and were welcomed warmly by the team of Headspace PR. What followed was a perfect mix of hanging out with lovely people, enjoying the sun, learning and discovering interesting facts about perfume and indulging a delicious menu. We enjoyed a menu created in all five colors of the fragrance line – blue, red, white, yellow and black. For each course, the table decoration was adjusted so it would fit the color of the respective dish, in order to fortify the colored experience. One of this day’s highlights was that we were able to assist the great cooking team with the two main courses and were especially happy to learn some tips how to prepare the recipes ourselves. Apart from this, a professional color psychologist and the Lacoste perfume developer enlightened the group with intriguing knowledge about scents and their different appeals. All in all, we can tell …

May Inspiration

May? That is the last step before summer! But that is not the only reason we have to love this month: it is a month of carefreeness, of flowers, sun and -most importantly- firsts within the year. First ICED café Latte, first strawberry ice cream, first pair of sandals, first pedicure with bright red or pink, first summer dress… and so on. A little shopping list
