It’s the season to be jolly and bright. Nevertheless I have been thinking about these festive days and what makes them so special to me. Because way to often we forget how special these days are and why we actually like to celebrate them. Christmas is a Christian feast on which they celebrate the birth of Jesus on the 25th of December. On the evening of the 24th the people start to celebrate with dinners, worship services and exchanging gifts. It’s a tradition which has become far more commercial and is not only celebrated by Christians anymore. I for myself have no religion. My parents have been baptized as Christian and evangelist but decided to let us decide for ourselves if we want to enter a church or follow a certain confession. I never felt really secure with either of them which is why I decided not to be baptized. But this is another topic I don’t want to illustrate now. My dad worked for the German military and we had to move cities quite …
Working with the squad from COTY is just always a joy. The last two years we have been a part of this amazing team (find a list with at the end of this post with the past events) and just loved all their events, surprises and cooperation offers. So, before telling you a little more about yesterdays event, I would like to take the chance and say thank you! The last two years the Christmas events have been held in Hamburg, which always brought me back to this lovely town. A town I somehow call home too since my Mum was born here. However this time they chose Berlin as their city, which also made me really happy and excited. Yesterday a bunch of bloggers and influencers headed to Delight Rental Studios in Berlin in order to spend a fun day together. The theme of this years event was “GOLD” and the main part was a photoshoot with tow different styles, in two different settings. My first look for the Bruno Banani section was the …
Christmas is coming closer and our schedules just seem to overflow with appointments. Here a Christmas party, there a brunch with friends and then another work deadline. When the year is coming to an end, we are just overloaded with things. Buying presents and setting up the holiday plan has to be squeezed in between all those dates. Nevertheless we want to share our December inspiration with you. Even though the month is already running to its fullest. White combined with silver or gold details are really high on our list. Letting it be our decoration at home or what we wear to the appreciate occasion. Even the Christmas wrapping can get a little glittery touch. Just because it looks more exquisit and wrapping presents in such delicate paper makes everything more bright.
During the holidays and also during christmas time in general the most important thing is to take some time for your beloved ones. There are so many things, that you may do during these times, going to the christmas market, doing some shopping for presents, passing a cozy night at home with some christmas movies… The important thing is, to take the time, not matter how stressed out you might be. That’s why we spent a girl’s Christmas night with a lot of ginger bread, hot mulled wine, christmas songs and some small presents.
Headspace PR and COTY simply know how to get you in the Christmas mood. Last week Friday I took the chance to head to Hamburg in order to attend their traditionell Christmas Blogger workshop. The venue was beautifully decorated with Christmas trees, the smell of Apple crumble was in the air and everyone seemed merry&bright. Through the afternoon we worked on some perfume themed DIY Christmas gifts, had some coffee and enjoyed the company of fellow bloggers. The perfumes mainly focused on were Mexx, Playboy, Bruno Banani, James Bond 007 and David Beckham. A big thank you to COTY and the Headspace PR team for inviting us once again. We always love joining you on such special events.
Holiday time after holiday time… For some reason, there are always some wardrobe standards that remain the same every season. Almost every time there is a sequin dress, there will most definitely be something velvet and of course the Christmas color red should never miss! That’s why this year’s gift guide is probably more for us, but why shouldn’t we indulge a little ourselves as well! Happy Holidays!

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.
Here it is, the last month of the year. This year was crazy! Somehow it rushed by instantly and all those amazing moments were simply too short. But the memories for this year are fabulous and we can’t wait for 2017 to become even greater. But to finish this year appropriately we of course can’t miss out on our monthly inspiration. December is a festive month, filled with glitter and love but also with hectic and craziness. Make sure to take some time for yourself, too. Cuddle up in bed or take a long bath, invest in long camel scarfs, glittery make up and kitten heels. Shopping lust list
