I am already more than 3 weeks back from vacation and I totally forgot to tell you what makeUp I took with me to Castellammare del Golfo in Sicily. So now I finally found time and here we go:
I took 5 different eyeshadows and a blusher by ARTDECO and I put them in a MAC palette. all the ARTDECO powder products like blusher and eyeshadows have a tiny magnet on the back so they are made to be stored in a palette. perfect for vacation as you can put together your individual palette. in general in summer or in summer vacation I am not applying MakeUp every day but in the evening after a long day on the beach it is nice to pamper oneself and wear a nice dress and go for dinner. well thats what I did. I was only wearing the makeUp in the evening as it was way too hot to wear makeUp during the day..
a sparkly pale brown
a matte stale blue
a warm matte dark mauve
a pale light matte brown
a matte light powdery beige
a nice warm almost pan of terracota
so as you can see out of the 5 eyeshadows 4 of them are matte and only one has shimmer.I either wore a simple look or a more smokey look.
I start with 551 all over the lid and highlight the parts below the brows. 16 in the crease.
551 all over the lid and highlight the parts below the brow and the inner corner of the eyes. then I take 506 and cutting the crease. and using 517 and 520 to blend it towards the eyelid.
awesome pigmentation and no fall out thats exactly what I want from eyeshadows – I will for sure get more of these in order to have more shimmery shadows too. will keep you posted.
where can you get these ARTDECO products? I found mine at parfumcity.ch they have awesome deals and since it is a swiss online shop you dont have to pay any extra charges from the customs. ARTDECO is a german brand and is based in Karlsfeld Germany.

yay – thank you so so much Carlita’s Collezione for sending me this lovely rosa leather jacket – it is perfect and totally made my day.
back in the days at the designbox (read more >> here) Carlita’s Collezione had her booth next to mine and thats how I found out about her gorgeous collections and awesome surf trips to Bali Indonesia. in case you wanna be super up to date follow her Instagram account!
thats what I have found about Carlita’s Collezione on her website:
“The love of surfing brought me again to Indonesia and then out of a dream came an idea and then the will to make this idea come true, became a reality. For a long time my biggest wish was to combine my creativity with sport activities and economics. Currently I live and work mostly in Indonesia. All leather goods as well as the bikinis are designed by me and carefully crafted in Bali. It is important to me that I am involved in most production steps, which means I actively participate in choosing the leather, the accessories and other materials on site. In addition, it is a matter of concern for me that my products are made under regular working conditions and in a pleasant work environment. These requirements meet both families with whom I work with. My products should relay the joy of life in Indonesia and conjure a smile in ones everyday life. For each item sold CHF 1.00 will go directly to SurfAid (www.surfaidinternational.org). SurfAid is a non-profit humanitarian organization that has set itself the goal of improving the health, well-being and self-confidence of people who one meets surfing in remote areas.”
I can highly recommend to check out her shop and I am sure you will fall in love with at least something and dont blame it on me when you end up spending all your money – hahahahahahahaha! xx
I did it. I went BIG. not that size matters in general – but here it does 🙂 I found this lovely piece at the ADVOLAT webshop and was thinking about it for the last couple of weeks before I ended up getting it. Cristian has the ADVOLAT CITY watch and I once stole his watch for a day and really enjoyed wearing a big watch. so this one the FLIEGER 2 is in fact slightly bigger than Cristians one.
thank you Jessy for being my model for this blogpost – you did an amazing job! I got the CLINIQUE all about shadow quad at the bloggers event a couple weeks a go and I was eager to try it out. I got number 09 in the shade smoke and mirrors. four beautiful colors – a light silver – a light grey – a sparkling black with silver particles and a black. I used all of the four colors on Jessys eyes.
I started with the lightest color and I applied it allover the lid. then I applied the second color the light grey in the crease and smooshed it out towards the middle of the eye. then I went in with the sparkling black and colored the outer v the last step I did was I took the fourth color the black one and I used it as an eyeliner allaround the eye. thats it – four simple steps for a dramatic smokey eye look!
for a simple casual everyday look ballerinas come in very handy as I prefere to wear flat shoes during the day. one of my favorite ballerina brand is PRETTY BALLERINAS
I would wear these ballerinas with skinny jeans, white t-shirt and a black blazer or a black leathe jacket – or I would wear them with a simple black dress – or I would wear them with a nice pair of slacks and a simple cashmere sweater. let me give you some inspiration:
what do you think? would this be something for you?
I got the WHISKY LOVER SET with the lovely stone ice cubes and 2 beautiful whisky glasses. the absolutely wonderful LOMO fisheye nautic camera which I am going to take to Berlin – I am flying to Berlin this afternoon and will be attending the zalando summerhouse event, stay tuned for more! and last but not least I got the grey entity salad bowl by MEBEL – I can not wait to use all these cool things. my next salad will be served with style and I hope my LOMO fisheye photos from berlin will look cool. I will keep you up to date. xx
aaww.. I am a huge candlelover and when the candles are scented then its even better. I can easily get into a Christmas mood in the middle of summer. thats how much I love it. when I stumbled upon these lovely soy wax candles I just couldnt resist – perfect packaging – made out of beerbottles. I got a big candle (39 CHF) and a small one (34 CHF) in two different scents: CRACKLING BIRCH and CLEAN COTTON – and both are really really good. after being used as a candle these glasses can be used for drinking – such a smart idea!
last friday I met Alina P. owner and founder of HIGH PASSION – a fashionlabel and onlineshop – she showed me her amazing collection and told me her story. It was so lovely to chat with her – thanks for contacting me, dear. So – Alina is from Romania and lives in ZH, Switzerland, she was first working in an office and then had to quit because of immigration issues. she is allowed to start her own business and therfore started HIGH PASSION but she needs to show her balance sheet in August 2013 and if they dont consider her onlineshop a good business she can stay but not work in Switzerland. Thats why I am very eager to present you her collection. PLEASE support Alina and treat yourself with a wonderful bandage dress – a true must-have piece!

there is a piece for everyone! I show you my favourite 3 dresses

floral pants print t-shirt rose blazer green earrings brown shoes black bag – you must think I try to mix all the no-goes into one outfit? – indeed I try to do that! I think fashion is so much about experiencing and you can try to kill an outfit in a positive way by adding more very different things to it. Mix it!

bright colors – studs – patterns – prints

I am so in love with these 2 amazing Tally Weijl pieces – the bright neon green cardigan with the silver studs is a wonderful eyecatcher and brightens up every outfit also the black and white patterend pants – they are so comfortable as if I wear sweatpants 😉 together they make a beautiful everyday to party outfit.
they come in 3 different shapes and in many different colors and material. ROUND – POINTED – ANGLED – black white silver grey blue red bordeaux orange pink.. – felt, leather, fake-leather..
this is a pointed silver fakeleather with embossment collarnecklaces – combine it with your favourite blouse or t-shirt – with black or white – a true accessories key piece!
black pants – thats something everybody should have in their wardrobe. for everyday and special occasion. I think these pants by KAVIAR GAUCHE for zalando collection are perfect for both – casual and chic!
