where my pearls at? be special and rock a hat! mix and match as you feel and dont be afraid to mix winter accessories and summer dresses – it CAN look stunning! this outfit has a touch of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and an almost southern state feeling. have you wondered how it was in New Orleans in the 1920’s visiting a French Quarter neighborhood? I think this outfit brings this atmosphere into 2014 and shows a way to wear a white dress with pearls combined with a red felt hat!
we made a statement – what about YOU?
I had so much fun shooting this look – thank you Jaswant and Simone!
I am such a huge mask lover and apply them 2 to 4 times a week. One of my favorite makeUp artists, Lisa Eldridge recommended the SISLEY masques for dry skin and long haul flights! So when I was sitting in the Airbus 380 on my way to San Francisco I used a sample of the SISLEY EXPRESS FLOWER GEL and I loved it. Now let me introduce 4 different face masks by SISLEY PARIS – lets start from left to right!
#EXPRESS FLOWER GEL hydrating, toning and firming mask
Apply all over face, except eye area, after 3 minutes blot to absorb excess. do not rinse off. hydrates tones and softens the skin!
#RADIANT GLOW EXPRESS MASK cleansing with red clay
Apply all over face, except eye area, absorbs impurities and deep-cleanses the skin. Gives an instant radiance boost. Leave on for 3 to 5 minutes and rinse with water!
#BLACK ROSE CREAM MASKsmoothing, plumbing, brightening
Apply all over face, except eye area, 2 to 3 times a week. wipe away any excess after 10 to 15 minutes!
#FACIAL MASK with linden blossom
Apply all over face, except eye area, once or twice a week. this mask helps to relax and smooth the face. Remove with lukewarm water after 20 minutes.
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MASK is the #BLACK ROSE CREAM MASK – I seriously want to apply this mask every night 🙂 I prefere masks where you do not have to rinse off excess with water because I apply the mask before going to bed and leave it on during my sleep.
are you a mask lover too? which products do you use and recommend?
RODIAL – my first experience with RODIAL products.
In the goodiebag of the L’OFFICIEL Schweiz launch party there was this SUPER ACIDS X-treme hangover mask by RODIAL. I have never ever used their products and I had to google the brand. RODIAL is a London based and was founded 1999 by Maria Hatzistefanis.
so anyway, I was curious enough to give this little green bugger a try. When I had dinner with my BF last night I just suggested to watch a movie later and put on this new clay mask. I was expecting nothing other but a big huge: “NO F****** WAY”.. but to my biggest surprise I heard: SURE, why not.
ooh, wow, that was a surprise! so we did it. we washed our faces and applied the SUPER ACIDS X-treme hangover mask by RODIAL and waited for it to be dry in order to scrub it off our faces. After 15 minutes the mask was dry and we removed it. I took some super funny photos of us with the face mask but I am not allowed to show you the photos 🙂 I guess it was enough for him that he was willing to try the mask!
so how was it?
It tingles and burns a bit when applying, so I think its nothing for very sensitive skin. As I have couperose on my cheeks with very sensitive skin I didnt apply any mask on my cheeks but still I had a burning feeling on my skin. The mask contains 75 ml and I am sure it will last for another 3 to 5 masks. But I am not sure if I will ever use this mask again as it is very strong and I think its too much acid for my sensitive dry skin. I will stick to my creamy masks that I have loved and used before. (eg. Sislyey Paris, Ananné..) so to sum it up, this mask is something for rather oily skin and nothing for sensitive skin.
Have you tried this RODIAL mask before? How did you like it? Would you recommend this mask? Please leave a comment below. thanks. xx
Currently I am checking out different Swiss online shops and stumbled upon MR LENS. Have you heard about this shop before? I think the name is a bit misleading because they do not only sell glasses and lens – they also have a big variety of parfum, hair and body products. I scrolled thru their whole shop and looked for products that are available within 24 hours and planned to spend 100 CHF. To be very honest with you it is not the most stylish online shop I have visited but its kept simple and I think its more about good deals than looking super nice 🙂
Shopping at MR LENS is very easy and I didnt have any problems with my purchase. I spend 99.60 CHF for the JO MALONE cologne, 6 showergels and 1 handwash by NIVEA. I ordered around 3 o clock in the afternoon and the next morning at 9 o clock I got the parcel delivered to my house. so within less than 24 hours I had all my things – THATS FANTASTIC!
ladies, spring is about to be here and Estée Lauder presents some really awesome new products. I was invited to the press lunch in Basel and had the opportunity to get all the products explained and introduced. we all got a booklet with the latest products and a lot of interesting tips!
#1 Sumptuous Infinite daring length and volume Mascara Some of you may know that I am not a Mascara Fan at all 🙂 I hardly ever use Mascara.. But still I am always craving new things and I am one of these person who loves to try out new things. So of course I gave this Mascara a try and I have to say it does what it promises. It made my lashes look longer and made them dense and I really liked the shape of the brush.
#2 Revitalizing Supreme CC Creme A new anti-aging CC Creme – which adapts to your skin color and gets slightly tinted. the Cream should be applied as the last step after the moisturizer and inbetween foundation. I wear the CC Creme on Sundays and I just wear it on top of my moisturizer and it makes my skin look very even and it reduces the redness on my cheeks.
#3 ReNutriv Ultimate Contouring Eye lift I cant wait for summer.. this will be my best friend in summer! The new ReNutriv Eye Lift Creme has an amazing applicator out of ceramic which always stays cool. No matter if you have it in your purse or in your room it stays the same temperature. its like magic! I use it without creme and start from the inner part sliding outwards underneath my eyes, I repeat this 3 times per eye after that I apply the creme with the same move. I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really see a difference in my skin around my eyes – YAY! #4 Pure Color Envy Lipstick Bright lips, I am so ready for the spring summer colors of 2014.
20 different intense moisturizing color shades for bright lustrous lips!
#5 Modern Muse Modern Muse – I love the name of the newest Estée Lauder fragrance.
The fragrance has a very elegant and soft note and became one of my favorite fragrances. I wouldnt say its a fresh scent but still it makes me feel very fresh and clean. I took it to London for the fashionweek and whenever I travel short distances with small luggage I limit myself to bring only one parfum and allow myself to buy one in the dutyfree 🙂 so this time I didnt find a suiting parfum on my way to london so this meant I had to use the same parfum everyday for one week 🙂 and I loved it!! on the way back I found something nice, something we dont have in switzerland, but I will tell you in another post. stay tuned. I can highly recommend to visit your local parfum shop and try the Modern Muse fragrance – I am sure you will love it too.
#6 Pure Color Nailpolish Not only bright lips but also bright nails – the new Pure Color Nailpolishes are really nice. I wore it for several days and it didnt chip. But I also used the top coat from Estée Lauder so I cant tell you if it would chip or not if wearing it without top coat. I will try it and will let you know.
soo, thats it for now. I had fun with all those new products and I hope you will enjoy them soon too! spring starts this month, yay! I will show you the Mascare, lipstick, CC Creme and Nailpolish in an upcoming post! stay tuned! xx
February 14, – February, 18, 2014 at Somerset House
I had an amazing time in London during the Fashionweek. I met wonderful people and returned very inspired from all the gorgeous outfits I have seen either on the catwalk or on the streets. every time I m in a big city, I mean I live in Basel (about 200 000 people) 🙂 so whenever I am in a big city I feel so free to wear whatever I like where as here in Basel I often get funny looks because of my outfit combinations… so I enjoyed my pink outfits and I made it to other blogs with my outfit. 🙂
During my time in London I stayed in the lovely Boutique Hotel called Citizen M and I already showed you some photos about my stay. Again, I have to say that I can higly recommend staying there as it is a very well located and equipped Hotel with working stations, printer, lobby, bookshop and a bar. read my post about Citizen M here >>
