ouff, it is monday night – two days after my birthday and I am processing all the joy and love from my party. it was an epic night – one to remember and keep close to the heart. again thank you to all my lovely friends for making it happen. thanks for all the gorgeous flowers and thanks for the delicious chocolate and olive oil. I got so many cool things, some of them are worth to blog about because I have never seen such things. stay tuned for more info.
now back to the HOME SWEET HOME topic, because today I wanna show you the small transformation of our guest room. we are not completely done – it will be a step by step change. so far I have flipped the black DRÖNA boxes by IKEA that are actually ment to be put in the IKEA shelf with the squares, I forgot the name of it and I used the black big binder paper clips to stack and secure them.
once you have built your desired shelf with the boxes and clips it is time to decorate the top.I am a big fan of WOHNREVUE and a stack of magazines always looks good. next to the magazines I put the new HOMMAGE d’ipuro ST ANTOINE candle and the ipuro season line diffuser in WHITE ORCHID. mhhmm, they are both super nice and together even better – scents are such a personal thing and
everyone has a different approach so just visit the next shop like DEPOT or MANOR and see for yourself which scents you like. next to the candle and diffuser I put the two MOLESKINE books one for travel and one for fashion. our future plan is to build two shelfes for all our electronic devices, office and creative stuff like folders, paint and other materials. I will soon show you the other side of the room with the new couch, that can be extended to a bed. we just had guests from poland and they said they liked to sleep on it. above the couch there is the world map with the pins – something that I have already shared with you – read more here >>
there is a new fragrance in the shops – the new SUMMER EDITION of the well known L’EAU D’ISSEY. and I have more news for you, there is also a new L’EAU D’ISSEY that is called CITY BLOSSOM by Mademoiselle Maurice.
the bottle of the summer edition looks very similar to the regular one but the scent of the is a bit lighter and more floral. the CITY BLOSSOM has a less sweet and less floral base and is a bit more herbal. again I have to admit that I am very bad at discribing scents. : ) this post should tell you that there is something new in the shops and is not a review about the products.
I was a big fan of the L’EAU D’ISSEY scent when I was around 16 and I can still bring back memories by smelling it. somehow I grew out of the scent and I am not wearing it anymore but with the new CITY BLOSSOM this might change it 🙂 I have only smelled it but not worn it yet. lets see it and you guys should see for yourself – visit your next shop and ask for the new summer edition. I am curious if you like it. X
I am so happy to already have this before its in the shop so I can tell you how great it is and that I am more than sure that this will be a big must have fragrance in the future. everytime I am wearing this – and this is almost every second day – I get a compliment on my fragrance followed by the question what it is that I am wearing. I had to give some to my mom as she already loves it too and I got one of these tiny containers where you can fill in the fragrance – these little spray containers come in very handy when you travel with hand luggage. what I find really funny is that the fragrance transforms in two different ways after wearing it on the skin for a moment – either the fresh, green note lingers around or the warm and almost powdery touch stays more present. in my case it was the fresh green part that lasted and with my mom it was the opposite. another thing that I wanna say is even though this parfum is actually created for women it could also be a more unisex fragrance BUT one has to like a quiet dominant floral scent.
head note: soy bean, lilly of the valley
heart note: orris root, cedarwood
base note: musk, cashmerewood
the fragrance will be exclusively sold at Marionnaud starting March 14, 2015
the campaign was photographed by Steven Klein and shows a classic portrait of the model Anna Ewers. she was styled by Vanessa Traina and had her makeup done by Diane Kendal and her hair were styled by Didier Malige it took place in New York and I almost could not believe – it was taken on December 11, 2013 – yes, thats quiet some time ago.
unfortunately the fragrance is not a very cheap one here you can see a list of prices:
Eau de parfum 75ml 175 CHF
Eau de Parfum 50ml 145 CHF
Eau de Parfum 30ml 89 CHF
Body Lotion 200ml 71.50 CHF

something new I am in love with! a couple of weeks ago I found these cute bath scents at the MUELLER store and was intrigued by the low price BUT nevertheless I ended up buying two packs and I already went back to get more!
two things that I absolutely love about them A is the nice natural scent and B is the super low price 1.50 CHF – that’s a bargain!
I have so far tried these three scents RUHEPAUSE – HONEY ALMOND – COTTON FLOWER and I already got a next one: FIGS!
so my awesome readers that was it for today and don’t forget to be nice and spread the word about nice things! HAPPY MONDAY! x
