Little White Dress

This little white dress from Sandro was my shopping find on my trip to Berlin. Sandro always has amazing stuff and with 50% it was the perfect sale find. Another thing that I'm currently loving is my new wish bracelet by Vivien Frank, thanks to NotaAbrand. This a fashion concept store which carries new and independent designers and is a great platform to discover new things. I fell in love with many things like this cashmere cardigan or this plaid (really tempted to order it for colder fall).

Happy Monday!!

A Little Hair Update

Last week Aveda invited me to celebrate an opening of a new Aveda hair salon von Schönborn & Luig over here in Munich and to introduce a new line, Invati. The new line should help the hair gain volume and strength. And as my hair haven't seen a hair dresser since January I was quite happy that I got my ends trimmed and a little color update. Nothing dramatic but much needed. 
What can I say I'm in love with the new salon's interior, can I have this workbench for my kitchen?
I'm thinking of trying more often the side parting of my hair. What you think?
Wishing you a great Sunday!

Welcome Home

Giving presents to yourself is something really great and if you can justify this as an early birthday present even better. I was wanting a Proenza Schouler bag for almost a year now. Back in January I almost got one in this color but as soon as I was ready to spend the money this bag was sold out. Today I'm happy I that I didn't get the bag because this greyish-taupe color (was wanting this one as well) is way more versatile than its purple friend. 
I also have a story tell about the sneakers. Few years ago I was standing in a store and was about to buy a pair of purple glitter converse sneakers but somehow I had doubts and left them in the store. Few weeks ago I saw this picture of Olivia Palermo wearing the exact same sneakers I wanted. I went on a hunt but never found them again. I knew I found something better when I saw these glitter friends by Jimmy Choo (I also love the dark green version here). 
And now I wish you a happy weekend! Any plans?
I will be relaxing and getting rid of my cold....

Nectarine Frangipane

Introducing the fastest and yummiest tart of the season. When it comes to peaches and nectarines I just can't stop eating. So this tart/frangipane was just the perfect choice for summer. And another big plus it is ready in just around an hour. Found the recipe on this newly discovered food blog and I'm absolutely in love with each of the recipes.

What do about you? Do you share my love for nectarines as much as I do?

Pyjama Dressing

If you've been reading this blog for a while now you know how much I love the comfy way of dressing. My love for pyjama-like pants started with this pair of Zara pants. From then on I've been buying every silky comfy pair of pants that crossed my way. This silky pair is from Massimo Dutti and can be perfectly dressed up or down like in this look.

What do you think about this comfy number?

In other news I have the winner of my Clinique giveaway. Congrats Anita!

Mani Monday: Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight

Happy Monday! Today I want to share some snaps from the new Bobbi Brown nail polishes. The nail polishes are part of the new Desert Twilight collection. And as a self-proclaimed nail polish addict I was really happy that I could test these colors. As soon as the polish bottles arrived in the mail I jumped on the turquoise color. The color is so summery and would complement these Balenciaga sandals perfectly. 
Now I can't wait to try the darker color, Twilight Shimmer. 

What do you think? Will you be trying out the Bobbi Brown polishes?

Didn't share my cravings with you for a while so let's start with this striped little number.
Ever since I saw these little striped shoes I was in love. And now they are on sale so I'm really having a hard time keeping my fingers away from clicking on the buy button.
Happy Friday everybody!

Kochzauber Box

A while ago I was asked if I would like to test the new concept ofKochzauber . The concept behind is that you the ingredients delivered to your door for three to five recipes every week. One thing from beginning I was very skeptical if the ingredients would be fresh and ok.

Modern Times

Got this Isabel Marant boots last year in a sample sale and as much as I wanted them I never knew how to style them. Then few weeks ago while searching through my closet I came across this dress and knew both would fit great together. 
Or what do you think?

Patrick Mohr: Backstage with Aveda and MAC

I still have some photos from Berlin that I want to show you. Here we go that was my glance at the backstage at Partick Mohr. A huge thanks to the lovely Aveda girls for the invitation! The theme for the hair was "bad hair day" girls had a very wavy lose curls thats looked very undone and boys got a wet hair look like straight out of a shower. 
Make up vise: the lips were very bold in neon orange and the rest of the face stayed very natural ( after seeing the photos again I'm taking another try on my neon orange lipstick last seen here).
Wishing you a great Monday!

Giveaway: Clinique BB Cream

Just to say thank you!
Earlier this year while I was traveling to Thailand I saw this BB Cream at the duty free and just had to try it. Few weeks later I got another tube from the lovely girls of Clinique. Both are in the shade 02 and a bit too light for my tanned skin at the moment. So I'm giving it way to one of my readers (the one I'm giving away is unused and unopened).
What you need to do:

  • follow me on facebook, bloglovintwitter or Google Friend Connect
  • for an additional entry blog, tweet or link this giveaway on facebook
  • and leave a comment with your email and if you did spread the word about this giveaway leave a link to your entry
  • the Giveaway is open internationally and runs until next Friday, 20th July. I will announce the winner here on the Blog.
Good Luck!!

Es gibt ein Gewinnspiel, einfach so um Danke an euch alle zu sagen.
Als ich dieses Jahr nach Thailand gereist bin und im Duty Free die BB Cream gesehen habe, musste ich sie mitnehmen. Dann habe ich diese tolle BB Cream noch mal von den Clinique Mädels zugeschickt bekommen. Beide haben die gleiche Farbe 02 und sind mir leider momentan zu hell. Und da ich zwei Tuben niemals aufbrauchen könnte soll jemand von euch die Chance bekommen sie zu testen (die BB Creme, die verlost wird ist neu und ungeöffnet).

  • folgt mir entweder auf Facebook, Bloglovin, Twitter oder Google Friend Connect
  • ein extra Los tweetet, schreibt ein Post über das Gewinnspiel oder verlinkt diesen Post auf Facebook

Lace and Studs

Here is what I wore on the first day in Berlin. Wearing comfortable shoes and a big bag to fit everything in. This Céline is so huge that I was able to fit in all my things including camera and some flats for walking.
Hope you are having a great week!

Mongrels In Common: Backstage with Aveda and MAC

As if visiting a show wouldn't be enough fun I was invited by Aveda and MAC to have a look at the backstage preparations for two different shows. I would say it was the most exciting part of my trip to Berlin. This is how it looked like before the mongrels in common show.
Make-up wise the models got a neon eyeliner and rest of the face looked pretty natural. I think it's a very fun take on the usual way of eyeliner.
Hair wise the models got the hair parted on the left side and it was straightened. The hair looked perfect for everyday.

What do you think about the neon eyeliner?

Mongrels In Common: The Show

Back from amazing two days in Berlin and done with sorting out the photos. Few weeks ago I was the happiest person ever when I got a mail from lovely Sarah that I was the winner of two tickets for the mongrels in common show during the Berlin Fashion Week. The Spring/Summer 2013 collection was inspired by sports, baseball to be correct. A lot of pieces that were classic with a little twist like this white coat. I loved every single piece that we saw, actually thinking about getting my hands on the white coat.
How do you like the collection?

I hope you are not getting bored of my casual summer outfits. But with summer in full force over here in southern Germany this is my weekend uniform when we are on the road on weekends. 
Have a great week!

News from Clinique

Recently I was very fortunate to receive some new products from Clinique to try out their newest products.
