I have already showed you my new bowl by mebel in previous posts but today I really wanna mention it here on my blog and show you where to purchase it. I found it via isda.ch a swiss onlineshop with many cool things for in and around the house. I got this bowl, the whisky lover set and the lomo camera and I love it all. I gotta say that the whisky glasses and the bowl were used the most so far.
what do you use to protect your hair? I have so far tried many different products. they are not bad but unfortunately none of them makes me really happy. I often use the heat protection product on dry hair and this makes it not always easy to get the product evenly thru the hair. another problem I have is that these products weight down my hair and make them look flat. I either use the hairdrier or the straightening iron to make wavy or straight hair. I can not say that I dont like the products above its just that they could do more for me than they do. but let me tell you some positive things. because some of these products have an amazing fragrance and they do protect my hair against the heat. my favorite one is at the moment the newest product the MYTHIC OIL and I will have to use it a bit more in order to be able to really compare it to the other ones.

I am curious what you use. please let me know. and comemnt below.
WHAT HEAT PROTECTION PRODUCT DO YOU USE?
aaww.. these products are amazing! they all do their one certain job very perfectly. something against the sun – something for a nice self tan without being exposed to the sun – another nice product that makes you look like you have spent the weekend in the sun with a couple of moves – a CC cream to protect the hair and a super nice soothing cooling aloe gel for the face after a day in the sun!
I am soon packing my bags for my roadtrip to ITALY and for sure I am going to bring these!
hahahaha, well yes, it is really true! never change a winning team, right? thanks to Passion for Brands I can call MIA2 by Clarisonic and Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash my own and I love them both and when used together it’s like having a facial at the salon – every day! sigh! I have very sensitive skin with couperose on my cheeks and that’s why I have to be very delicate to my skin as it is irritated very easily. I use the Clarisonic brush for sensitive skin and a tiny bit of the Face Wash in the shower and it’s just the best way to clean my face in the morning!

wow, so I have checked my wardorbe and I found out that the last two months I was shopping a lot at ESPRIT. As I previously mentioned, the store in Basel is one of the most beautiful shops because of its amazing stairs coming down in the center of the store. I will try to take some photos when I m there next so you can see what I mean.
so what I wanna share among you is that ESPRIT has great SALE prizes and that it sometimes is worth to gamble and wait with purchasing and only buy it when its on SALE – of course you risk that your size or color might be gone. I was always very lucky with this system, especially at ESPRIT store Basel. As you can see I found many black and white skirts, black boots and fauxlether shorts a fancy two color dress and a white top. All these things can be combined together – thats key to me!
some of the pieces are not only wearable in summer but also for fall and spring! and I dunno about you but among my friends ESPRIT had some sort of a “Grandma-Shop” touch and by showing you my shopping haul I think its very clear that this aint the case!

so what can I tell you about this show. It is not part of Art Basel but it is located just behind the art unlimited in hall 3. to be very honest I didnt see all the rooms because of the long queues. but what I saw I either liked or I tried to understand the meaning and thoughts behind the artwork. one of my favorite rooms was the one by DAMIEN HIRST. I have visited the 14 ROOMS on different days and saw that there are not always the same people in the room. I saw the dark haired twins, the blonde twin girls and the rasta boys who werent twins. Sadly one is not allowed to take photos inside the show. but here you can find more information about the project and some photos –> https://www.artbasel.com/en/Basel/About-the-Show/14-Rooms

this is one of my favorite pieces of Art Unlimited. everyday it looks slightly different as people move and the art piece transforms. bang bang – my baby shot me down – bang bang!
The Biolage Volume Boost Shampoo and Conditioner contain cotton and no parabens. I used it for the last couple of weeks and I like to switch shampoos that means that I am always having at least 3 products standing in the shower. Like this its easier for me to directly compare the products and effects and also I feel that its better for my hair to have a change every now and then. I previously introduced some other Biolage products, click here >> and I am still using them to this very day!
What can I tell you about these products, other than that they work great for me. They smell amazing, the shampoo lathers and the conditioner makes my hair so smooth and easy to comb.
Let me introduce you to MATRIX Amplify Volume Wonder Boost Root Lifter – another great product for fine hair! How do I use this?
Use on damp hair, direct snozzle applicator close to the scalp or all over, blow dry, set or dry naturally, style as usual. Very simple but very effective! I can compare this product to the Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 hours sustainable volume spray and I can not tell you which one I like more as they both create amazing volume – they will be used up both!

Have you tried these MATRIX products?
for the last couple of weeks I have been trying out these MATRIX design pulse hair products.
Express Blowout Creme, for fast drying and silky smooth finish. it helps protect from high temperature styling tools. apply to clean, damp hair.
I can directly compare this product to the Elnett de Luxe 230° C style spray and I think they are really alike. both help to protect from high temperature styling and both help straightening the hair and they also both smell good. packagingwise I prefere the MATRIX tube but I really dont like the design of the design pulse line, its too bold and too black for me.
Anti Humidity Hairspray that locks in smooth and controls frizz in any weather. 24 hours humidity resistance and hold.
my hair is naturally wavy with straight parts, ever since I have started to dye my hair I really got frizzy roots and this spray is a holy grail, it really controls my frizzy hair! its a light texture spray that is not making your hair look dry or hard. I love it! thanks MATRIX, this is my favorite product out of the design pulse line!
Instant Dry Shampoo, that refreshes the hair and absorby oil for a cool second day look.
I dont really like to wash my hair too often and therefore I am a big fan of dry shampoos in general. I already tried many and I can directly compare this MATRIX dry shampoo to the label M dry shampoo I was using before. they both do a great job when it comes to absorbing the oil but I prefer the smell of the label M product.
