#duftezeit

Last Friday the team of Headspace PR and COTY invited us once more to an exceptional blogger get-together in Frankfurt am Main. Everything was just perfect! The location, the setting, the food and the people. It was an absolutely phenomenal afternoon. Center of attention were the fragrances by Esprit, Mexx, Bruno Banani and James Bond. For each one of them the team created special workshops. We made flower bouquets, tried to form blossom shaped ice cream, learned about dos and don’ts when visiting metropolises and created our own gif. And of course they spoiled us with delicious hearty food and lovely sweet treats. A big thank you to the lovely team and all those busy bees who helped to make this afternoon a memorable one. We are looking forward to more fun workshops and events.

Beauty in Berlin: Shan’s Beauty

A couple of days ago, we spent a more than lovely morning at Shan’s True Beauty Lounge, situated directly at Kurfürstendamm. We really loved that, finally, there’s a similar concept in Berlin as the New York one, which are „blow dry“ bars, where you can go and let your hair be washed and styled so that you can start the day right! Apart from the brilliant hairstyling we also got some beautiful manicures. There is a variety of nail polishes to choose from – all lovely colors. Altogether, we can only recommend to check out Shan’s Beauty Lounge if you have a minute, you can just walk in without an appointment! The prices are also moderate – you’ll get a manicure with nail polish for 20€ and a blow dry for 35€.

February’s Favorites

It’s time for another update on our three favorite beauty products of February. Detox Mask Tonerde Absolue by L’oréal The new detox masks by L’oréal have been advertised largely. Nevertheless, I have to say that they convinced me. I try to use the mask once a week (on Sundays there is always some beauty time!) and I can feel an effect. My skin feels clearer and more balanced. Perfect Match Highlighter by L’oréal  When I was on a girl’s weekend in Palma de Mallorca this year, a friend of mine introduced me to the perks of highlighter. I’m not that much of a make-up girl in terms of concealer, foundation or rouge (I always try to let my skin breathe as much as possible!) but I couldn’t argue that a little sparkle on the cheek bone adds to a more fresh and beautiful face, instantly. Lacoste pour Elle Magnetique Eau de Parfum  I’ve been in love with the Lacoste scents since we’ve been to the Lacoste perfume event in Frankfurt two years ago. For some …

January’s Favorites

The first month of the year is coming to an end and we are happy to share some of our favorite beauty / accessories additions with you. Half-moon necklace from H&M I bought this little cute necklace last week since it perfectly matches my kind-off jewelry obsession. It’s delicate, a little sparkly and offers a nice highlight to any casual outfit combination. Real Techniques makeup brushes These brushes make the application of makeup fun and easy. The brush itself is soft and the brand offers a good variety of products. Great quality for a great price. They are not as expensive as the Zoeva brushes but just as good. Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days nail polish Super easy to apply and a nice shade (Rose Veil nr. 882) for the season. I have not tried if they really stay for 7 days but it worked for three.

Pulse Points

If you are applying a fragrance you want to feel good and others should notice it otherwise its a waste of time and money. Perfume can have a powerful effect on your confidence and mood so it should work to its maxim. Pulse points, or anywhere you can find a heartbeat are traditionally recommended as spots to apply a fragrance on. The majority of those physical locations are linked with kissing potential and therefore loaded with a certain seduction level. These points include for example the base of the throat, the inside of the wrists and the decollate, making the fragrance narrative both logical and utterly romantic with her code. Christmas is probably the best season of the year to give away a little scented bottle. We can highly recommend the Hugo Boss The Scent fragrance for her (seen in these pictures) and him. Both offer the right amount of seduction and feel-good-mood you are instantly hocked.

Hugo Boss. The Scent

Boss The Scent is the smell of a hard-working, cosmopolitan, sensual, elegant and strong woman. When I first smelled the fragrant, I was instantly hooked and thought it was the perfect combination of sexy and sweet. It is quite intense and has a note of cocoa. I also instantly liked the elegant bottle, it somehow reminds me of New York’s skyscrapers like the Empire State Building and I have to think about the time I lived in that huge and mesmerizing city not so long ago… What To Wear with this scent

Nuori Travel Essentials

We have been trying out these Nuori travel essentials the last weeks and simply loved the products. I especially like the foaming cleanser, which basically smells like fresh fruit and cleanses your face gently with a soft foam. The special thing about Nouri is, that all the products have a date when to start using them. Since many other beauty products only have an expiration date, they sit in the shelves for ages and no one thinks about how many ingredients may also fade or loose their benefits over time. That is why Nuori products have a start-using-by date AND an expiration date, in order to make sure that the products are the freshest on the market! We think that is an amazing concept that no one has really thought about before. In cooperation with Nuori

Look Up Now

We all want to enjoy our own little summer, let it be at home on the balcony or at the beach far away. Luckily we have something that brings you into the mood for warm days and mild nights. Look Up Now – Life is surprising is the new summer fragrance by Mexx and is available for women and men. Both are refreshing and the ideal travel companion since they also come in hand luggage sizes (smallest for women is 15ml, for men 30ml). In cooperation with HeadspacePR and Mexx

Eau De Lacoste Pour Elle

These three fragrances really made our hearts skip a beat. Inspired by the famous Lacoste pleated skirt this trio is giving us the full spring/summer swing. All three are fresh, fun and iconic in their scent. And those pastel shades make the perfect decor in our bathrooms. Still looking for a Mothers Day gift? Think you found one.. But make sure to take some time. It’s so hard to choose which one is better. Let us quickly introduce them to you: Elegant (white) Effortless, confident, classic. Citrus oil, cassis buds, pink pepper, mimosa, vetiver. Natural (green) Inspiring, authentic, warm. Coconut, raspberry leaves, mandarin, pineapple, Florentine iris. Sparkling (pink) Sweet and playful. Macaron, fruits, spices, patchouli. In cooperation with HeadspacePR and Lacoste

Hair Couture

When you are a dancer and frequently doing performances at the theatre, you need styling products that you can rely on. Your hair is often already stressed due to many make-overs and lack of time. Mostly, you will find yourself in a situation where you have your performance earlier that night but also have some event to attend afterwards. That is when you need to create a cool hairstyle with products that do not damage your hair further but rather make it stronger, supporting the styling in the right way. Today, we took the time to try out a new hairstyle, working with products by Sebastian Professional. For our styling we made use of two products, ERUPTEK and RESINTEK. ERUPTEK has a texture that feels like lava and creates instant volume for your hair. Especially when styling curls, ERUPTEK is the perfect helper to have stronger and more long-lasting curls. We used the RESINTEK liquid wax in order to fixate the hair on one side, to get a more edgy and cool one-sided look. The product provides reliable hold but at the same time you can …
