OUTFIT: an urban brunch

If someone had suggested wearing a total white look to me last year, I would have kindly declined. White is a color that tends to intimidate me, mostly for the fear of pouring a big cup of coffee all over myself. However, in the meantime I have realized that covering yourself in coffee looks bad no matter what color you’re wearing, so it might as well be white. While dressing for brunch with Urban Decay today in the morning, I felt daring and picked out all sorts of whites. As of 6pm, I am still doing fine with no coffee stains in sight.

BEAUTY TALK: Invisalign Update #1

By the title of this blogpost, you guys can probably already guess what I ended up deciding on in terms of my Invisalign treatment. In all honesty, I was more or less set on going through with it before even writing about it, but all the positive feedback from you guys only reassured me. Aside from all of the super sincere and helpful comments, I also received a ton of emails from press contacts and marketing ladies that I work with on a regular basis. And guess what, never had I noticed that any of them wear Invisalign! Judging by all the comments and feedback you guys left after my last beauty talk about Invisalign, I have decided to sort of document my journey right here on the blog. I would have loved to find more information on it from other blogger’s who had it done while I was doing my research, so I hope that these posts will be helpful to some of you.

BEAUTY TALK: gimme brow by Benefit

It is really rare that I get overly excited about beauty products. Don’t get me wrong, I love my daily routine and usually never leave the house without make-up on. However, I have a few products I trust and almost never venture away from. A few weeks back, I went to have my brows done at the Benefit brow bar in Vienna (it is at the House of Beauty by Douglas). I’ve been going there since last year and am always super happy with the results. Before I left, the lady did my newly done brows with the “gimme brow” by Benefit to add some color to my otherwise super light brows. I was so happy with the result, that I immediately bought the product. Only to find out at the cash register, that it costs 25€ … I was a little taken aback, but still wanted to have it. Honestly though, as much as 25€ for a tiny product is, it is worth every penny. I have been using it daily and absolutely love the results – so much, that I wanted to share the product for today’s beauty talk with you guys!

BEAUTY TALK: big curls – video tutorial

While I love the idea of a beautiful hairstyle with big waves and effortless curls, it has always been one of my most dreaded exercises in the bathroom. By the time my hair was curled, I used to be completely frustrated and the curls would never come out that good. However, with a little patience and practice, I have found a way of creating big curls in less than 15 minutes. And I have thick hair! I recently filmed a tutorial for “beautystories“, the blog by Douglas Parfümerie, and thought some of you may like it. You can see the final result below, and simply click on over to beautystories for the full big curls video tutorial.
