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.

CRAVINGS: eye spy

There’s a little countdown going on right now. Today, we’re at 16 days, and it is time to get excited! Pretty soon, Kathi and I will be hoping on a plane for some fun (and business) in the sun. While it won’t involve any sand or ocean, we have a rooftop pool and 28°C forecast to look forward to. Reason enough to start planning outfits. Obviously the planning process usually just makes you realize, that you have exactly nothing to wear, so we’ve been browsing the online shops like pros. While doing so, I came across some Karen Walker sunglasses again, which have literally been on my wishlist for years! The only problem: They don’t sell them anywhere around here, so no chance to try them on – which would probably be a good idea before spending 230€ on sunglasses… But the longer I look at them, the more in love I am. Now I just need to make up my mind between the classic “Number One”, or the “Harvest”. What do you guys think?

BEAUTY TALK: a new smile

A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose.”
-Tom Wilson

Whenever someone asks me to describe myself, I would usually say that I am a happy person, with a love for the beautiful things in life. My friends and family mean the world to me and I eat too much hummus. There are so many different reasons that make me smile, and I think a good laugh can cure a lot of heartaches. That being said, I have been playing with a thought, which I wanted to share with you for today’s beauty talk…

VIDEO: bridal shoot

Last week, I married Kathi! Not really, but it sure felt like it. We hopped in front of Julie Brass’ lens for a bridal shoot to show off Anna Posch’s skills. Don’t worry, no wedding bells ringing just yet, but it was so much fun to play dress up with stunning dresses and even more stunning flower crowns. Since it has been forever since I last uploaded a video to my Youtube channel, I created a short little video to take you guys behind-the-scenes. Hope you like it, and be sure to head on over to PoschStyle for the final results of the shoot! Continue after the click for the video:
