TRAVELS: packing for Berlin with Douglas

I am currently going through just about every outfit option my closet has to offer in the hopes of finding the perfect looks for Berlin. Thankfully my beauty bag is already packed, as my favorites are much easier to choose than clothes …
My flight leaves at 7:20am tomorrow and I can’t wait to experience Berlin Fashion Week for the first time. I’ll be attending a few shows, lots of side events – and most importantly I’ll be keeping you guys updated right here on Bikinis & Passports, but also on “beautystories“, the beauty blog by Douglas. I am excited to share some backstage hair and make-up impressions and my Fashion Week Diary with all of you – so be sure to stay tuned.
For all of you that have asked about my hair care routine, I recently filmed a step-by-step video for beautystories, so hopefully that helps a bit.

BEAUTY TALK: staying young

At age 25 I currently don’t worry much about wrinkles, but I do know it is the time when we should start taking care of our skin and building up for the future – I’m sure you’ve all heard of anti-aging creams for our precious faces. But have you ever thought about your hair getting older? I certainly hadn’t until I was introduced to Pantene Pro V’s new anti-aging series “youth protect 7″. Experts say that around age 25 your hair looses the typical “bounce” and we all know that the structure can change over time (especially during pregnancies or hormonal changes). Well, I certainly love my hair and hope it stays the way it is right now for a long time! I have super thick hair and used to hate it when I was younger (too much to handle…), but over the past few years I have grown fond of my hair and most importantly the thick structure – which I certainly don’t want to change any time soon.
For everyone that is curious now, Pantene Pro V has organized a Q&A session on their Facebook page this Tuesday from 4 to 5:30pm (CET) with the hair expert Sacha Schütte. Join me and lots of other girls to ask away – anything that you want to know about hair care and anti-aging!

While we enjoyed beautiful summery weather last week, the forecast says lots of rain for the next few days. Feels like we’ve got the summer blues … and speaking of summer, here are a few beautiful blue items that are currently on my wishlist for a bit of ocean feeling!

BEAUTY TALK: gala hair & make-up

As some of you may know, I’ve been blogging for “beautystories” (the German beauty blog by Douglas) since March. I share my favorite looks, products and wishlists with their readers! Recently they’ve asked me to put together a few videos, and of course I also wanted to share them with you guys. In honor of the Cannes Film Festival, which kicked-off yesterday, I decided to create a glamorous evening look with red lips, cat eyes and big hair. Click HERE to see the video – hope you guys like it!
