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.
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€.

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 …
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.
September is already here, I don’t know how to describe why but that is always the sign that summer is slowly coming to an end for me personally… The first time when this wasn’t true was actually last year, when I lived in New York and experienced the so-called Indian Summer. Indian Summer is a hot period in September that brings the most beautiful summer to the city, it is super warm, the sun is shining all day and long into the evening and the streets are all dipped in golden light. Let’s hope that there will be some of these golden days in Berlin as well! Happy September! What To Wear this September
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
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
Do you know this feeling? The feeling when you visit a location that just takes your breath away? Through our time in New York we have been lucky to often see the city from above and admire the hectic world beneath. These spots, where you can see Berlin from above, have also been growing stronger in the last couple of years. But sometimes there are still these roof views that seem so unreal. During a special project we got the chance to snap some pictures on the roof of the hotel Sofitel in Berlin.
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
For many this probably is not applicable but I think winter is a beautiful season. Many people are a little touchy when you start talking about this season but somehow it’s just this special time of the year. Christmas seems just around the corner and everyone starts to buy their presents. The days are getting shorter and the nights longer (one aspect I also don’t favor that much), a hot chocolate becomes more enjoyable, cookies and cinnamon rolls unfold their true flavor. Thick coats are coming out again, cozy hats and long scarfs grace our necks. I for example absolutely love getting into the dancing studio during that time of the year. Darker shades are moving into our closets such as a midnight blue, a dusted grey or a rouge noir (make sure to check out the new Chanel beauty collection!). On the shopping list
