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.
When it comes to jewelry we both like to wear statement necklaces just from time to time. But on a daily basis we would always stick to delicate pieces such as these necklaces by Happiness Boutique. Statement necklaces are great for special occasions but wearing them a whole day just seems so heavy that in the end of a day you are happy to take them off again. Here you can shop the two necklaces shown in the pictures above: The Golden One Necklace / The Time Is Now Rose Gold Delicate Necklace ! And guess what – you get 10% discount by adding the code midnightcouture at the checkout. Shop similar pieces here In cooperation with Happiness Boutique
April is here and the weather is already perfectly matching the month. And when you look through this post you might get the impression of an Autumn inspiration. But no, this month we like to focus on beige, red, brown and caramel shades combined with black, white and grey. What will you find on our shopping list? A brown or dark red leather jacket, snake printed pieces, white skirts, beige pants, silk blouses and bags in brown, walnut, umber and chestnut. Here some pieces from our wishlist
For this month we have set-up a collection of pictures reflecting elegance and quality of life. If you want to dress-up then dress-up! Go out for a delicious dinner and don’t be afraid to pay a little more. Enjoy it and have the best time of your life. Through some tragic experiences we certainly know what we are talking about. Life is just too short to be unhappy or feel disappointed. Saw a bag you always wanted to own? Go for it. It’s so important to sometimes indulge in something or treat oneself reasonable. Add to your shopping list something you always wanted to own and find a special day to buy it. Go shopping with your Mum or a close friend, have a cake and a coffee on the way and spend some money.
We both are jewelry lovers which is why we are more than happy to share these delicate pieces with you. Finding the right accessories is not easy and it can take years until you have found the appropriate jewelry fitting your style and your mood. Choosing jewelry everyday can be really nerve-racking and somehow you get used to the same necklace, the same pair of earrings or the same bracelet. A routine kicks in. Therefore it is really important to add the one or other new piece to your treasure box so you can sometimes get rid of your normal pattern.

It’s that time of the year again – AWARD SEASON IS COMING! We just love watching the Oscar awards on television and see all those beautiful gowns. You really get this old Hollywood Glam feeling and just keep on dreaming about wearing an Elie Saab dress yourself one day (he really creates the best gowns!).

Christmas is coming closer and we want to make sure that you have the right gifts ready for your beloved ones. Boys, let us tell you this: we love cozy cute sweaters and delicate jewelry pieces. Sence Copenhagen (one of our all-time favorites) is really one of those perfect little gifts for Christmas. Not too glittery and over-sized. When it comes to sweater make sure to buy one which offers a good quality. French Connection for example has some absolutely lovely ones in their winter collection as well as Maje and Whistles.
This month is all about mind, body and soul. It’s just the right time to relaxe a little before the real Christmas madness starts next month. Take some time off and give yourself the one or other spa treat at home, cuddle into a cozy sweater, grab a tea and read a good book. Outside is getting colder so make sure you keep focused on you and your health – a flu just comes so easily. We are thinking of fuzzy socks, a warm grey sweater, a really comfy pair of jogging pants, oversized beige cardigans and some cute ballet flats in grey, black or nude.
While in Paris a month ago we also meet lovely Fiona during Fashion Week. We took the opportunity to take some pictures in the Tuileries Garden. The weather was absolutely marvelous! Just look at this bright colours in the background. A true sensation for snapping some pictures. Dress – Fionas own creation Boots – Doc Martens
Fashion Week madness in Paris. One week ago we decided to take a look at the outfits in front of the Dior fashion show at Cour Carrée du Louvre. Totally crazy! People screaming and shouting, running and gliding. When Anne Dello Russo came she walked directly into our direction and when Dakota Fanning arrived everyone went crazy. I’m not sure how I got the picture of her but you can see it here (Nr. 6). Also Coco Rocha and Natalia Vodianova walked by with their bodyguards. In the end Marion Cotillard came who we sadly missed since we were so hungry we had to find something for lunch. Which meant, ending up in a little backyard park with super delicious falafel.
