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

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.

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 …

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.

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 …

We were lucky enough to be able to test these elegant tights from the Wolford luxury collection. Each pair is adorned with Swarovski elements and/ or finest lace. We are absolutely in love with each of them! First: Tights Tilda Second: Silk Crystal Say Ups

Your Inner Bond Girl

Sévérine played by Bérénice Marlohe 2012 / Skyfall Elektra King played by Sophie Marceau 1999 / The World Is Not Enough Dominique Derval played by Claudine Auger 1965 / Thunderball I don’t know why and I don’t know how this came, but since years I’m a huge James Bond fan. I love the movies and all the fuss about it (yes, speaking of the new James Bond movie hitting the cinemas this year). Last week they released a teaser for Spectre and I honestly watched it about five times. Daniel Craig is a great Bond and Christoph Waltz will probably blow our minds away as the bad guy. But besides bad guy good guy and a lot of action there is another very important aspect that marks the history of James Bond: the Bond Girls! A long list of victims, opponents, spies, playmates and heroines. All giving the right amount of sex appeal and coolness to the movies. Who wouldn’t want to be a Bond Girl? And guess what now everyone can challenge their inner Bond Girl with the new 007 FOR WOMEN …

Caption Nailpolish Event

On the beginning of this week I was lucky enough to attend the lovely CAPTION nail polish event here in Amsterdam. It was a fun night full of girl’s talk, nail polish and sweets! I have to say – I am absolutely stunned by the result of the three layers nail polish (base, color, top coat). It looks like the nails were gel and lasts for several days without any cracks!
