BEAUTY TALK: Afternoon Tea with STELLA

Ohh Stella McCartney … I don’t know what exactly it is about her that fascinates me so much (aside from her gorgeous Falabella bags of course), but the woman is simply WOW and I almost feel a bit guilty telling you guys that I got to have afternoon tea with her yesterday in Munich. Like really with her, as in she sat across from me at the table ♥ To celebrate the re-launch of her scent “STELLA” she gathered a few bloggers and journalists for a lovely intimate afternoon tea at the Victorian House in Munich. Tea sandwiches, lots of pink rose, champagne, macarons, … so girly and so perfect!
I was actually surprised by how much I liked the scent, because I am usually someone that prefers really “light” perfumes. When I heard it was based on the contrast between the fresh, soft rose, and dark amber I felt like it could be a bit too much. But the rose comes across perfectly – not too heavy, but very true to itself – and as Stella told us during tea-time, it was her personal mission to create a scent you could wear, but that wouldn’t wear you. She said that she loves it when she meets people and smells the perfume just enough to want to know what it is, but not too much to want to get away from that person as fast as possible. Do any of you wear the scent regularly? I think it’ll be perfect for Fall!

VIDEO: a few new beauty favorites

These past few weeks I have been spoiled with quite a few amazing items in the beauty department. As you guys know, I have a pretty solid routine and only a few products I absolutely love. However, amongst the new stuff, there definitely are a few contestants which are on their best way to becoming total favorites. I also re-discovered some products that I hadn’t used for a while, such as my Benefit “Coralista” blush and wanted to share my September beauty favorites with you. To watch the video with my personal review and opinion about the products, click on the image below. (Sorry, only in German).

VIDEO: easy big curls – tutorial

Recently I have been getting a crazy amount of questions regarding my curls that I’ve worn in a few pictures. You guys wrote emails, asked on Instagram, commented here on the blog … so I would say it is about time to let you guys into the secret (which isn’t really a secret). I am currently in the process of planning my outfit for this year’s Oktoberfest in Munich for the #coverprwiesn, as I’ll be going for the first time (yay!!). I already received my gorgeous Dirndl last week, and this week I decided on the accessories and hair. At first I thought I wanted to wear my hair in a braided up-do, but then decided that a Dirndl + braids would look suuuper “Heidi-style”, so I will probably wear my hair in curls, just like in today’s tutorial. I have teamed up with KMS California to show you guys that it only takes a few products and about 20 minutes of your time to get easy big curls that will stay in shape all day (and night).

BEAUTY TALK: a new york lovestory … MYNY

Ohh, New York! There is something so magical about the city, and it is simply like no other place in the world. So impressive, so timeless, so eclectic, so fast, so beautiful, … so New York! I am 100% a city girl and couldn’t imagine not being surrounded by lots of pretty buildings, the hustle and bustle of other people around me and the endless possibilities (especially when it comes to food) a city has to offer on a daily basis. I’ve been to NYC twice and currently the destination is more present than ever, since my good friend Victoria just moved there with her hubby – what better excuse to plan another trip soon, right? Until then, I’ve got MYNY right in my pocket with the new DKNY scent: girly yet grown up – fresh and flowery but also timeless and rich – cool yet classy! MYNY is for every girl, no matter what your lovestory with New York City is like ♥
