Everyday Make Up

Source: Bobbi Brown


Well I actually planned to make a step by step tutorial about my everyday make up but my skin decided that I'm still a teenager. So for now I just have some inspiration for you. I love my make up not to be really visible: glowy cheeks, some mascara, just a bit of a gloss on my lips and may be a wash of an eyeshadow that is what you can mostly find on my face.
Do you have any kind of favorite way to how you wear your make up everyday?

Blue and Tan

My weekend consisted of strolling around Munich, playing Blokus (a really cool game on which we can spend hours with friends) in a biergarten and watching I think ten movies so far. Well I would call this very relaxing few days.
Hope you are all enjoying the long weekend!

Friday's Cravings: Glitter



Found these glitter beauties while checking the online stores today. And if it glitters I'm in love. Must be my russian genes...
Have a great long weekend!

Beim Durchstöbern von Online Shops habe ich diese Schönheiten entdeckt. Und wenn es glitzert bin ich immer hin und weg, muss an meinen russischen Wurzeln liegen...
Wünsche euch ein tolles verlängertes Wochenende!

Sail Away

Starting to enjoy the warm weather. There is nothing better than taking pieces out for a walk that have been sitting in the back of the closet all winter long.
Happy Wednesday!

Supreme Day with Estée Lauder

This week I was invited by Estée Lauder to spend a day together with the winners of the Supreme Giveaway that was hosted on the facebook page of Estée Lauder. Five of the winners could spend a day full of being pampered by the Estée Lauder team. Together with Sina one of my fellow blogger friends we had an amazing day.

Friday's Cravings: Neutral Territory

Building an everyday wardrobe I try to focus on pieces that I could pair in many different ways. I used to buy things that I would wear once and never again. Now I'm trying to think of at least three different outfits with a piece I'm just about to buy.
With these neutral colored pieces I can see myself wearing over and over again:

Strawberry Tarts


With the strawberry season just about to start I can't wait to drive out to the fields and pick some berries. But for now the bought ones are as perfect as they can get. Last weekend we had some friends over and I had just a little time to prepare something nice. In this case I always come back to these little tarts (this recipe seems to be similar). And as we had some strawberries in the house I thought it would be a great fresh and fruity touch. Well these tarts were gone in few minutes and I was delighted to see happy faces. Next on my list: a variation of these basic tarts by adding some basil to the cream filling. What do you think?

We also made some champagne cocktails to go with the tarts.

Yellow and Blue


Another busy week is over and I still have so many photos from my vacation to share with you. Hopefully you won't be too bored.
Let's start with these, simple outfit including my favorite Balenciaga shoes for that trip and I think I will be wearing them non-stop this summer.
Hope you had a great and relaxing weekend!

Thai Cooking Class

some ingredients waiting to be mixed to a papaya salad
During our stay in Thailand we had a chance to take part in a thai cooking class. There we were able to learn how to cook some traditional dishes. Before the cooking session we had a trip to a local market where I saw so many new vegetables and fruits. Over the next few week I'll be recreating the dishes we learned and showing them here on the blog. 
Wishing you a great day!

Have a great Monday!

Back From Paradise


A week ago we jumped on the plane to Thailand and after 13 hours of a surprisingly comfortable flight we were in paradise or what can be called Phuket. This was my first time traveling to Thailand and I couldn't believe how beautiful the landscape was. We didn't do much over the week: layed lazy around the pool, walked on the beach, ate tons of fruits, drank fresh coconut water, took part in a cooking class (I will post more on this soon) and watched amazing sunsets.
Hope you having an amazing week so far!
