Since I am currently enjoying truly blissful temperatures of around 30°C day & night, I wanted to share my favorite summertime must-have from the beauty department today. The Maldives have a very tropical climate, with humidity reaching up to 80% right now and so my daily make-up has to be light and simple. Plus a high SPF is a definite must!! Looking back on the post of my springtime favorites, I noticed that 3 of the 5 items are the same. But I guess that is a good thing, because I feel like I have finally found those few products that I simply LOVE and feel like it is money well spent if I actually use the items daily!
Although spring here in Vienna still isn’t anywhere to be seen, I thought it would be fun to share a few products I am currently loving – especially for spring! I always love to see what other people like to use, so here are 5 products which are part of my daily routine at the moment:
This past week has been unusually quiet here on the blog. I honestly don’t remember the last time I only posted once in an entire week – but life simply got in the way these past few days. Work was extra busy because we finally launched a huge project that the team had been working on for almost 2 years, which called for “a few” extra hours at the office … But today I am back with a new post and I already have a bunch more in the making for this week.
I had a wonderful Easter with the family at home, and to match the many pastell-colored easter eggs I decided to try Essie’s “go ginza” from the new spring 2013 collection. It is such a pretty soft and light pinkish purple and I am absolutely loving it!! Considering that it started to snow (!!) again yesterday, at least I have a little bit of spring going on on my nails! The color went on perfectly even with 2 coats, and since I just applied it yesterday I can’t say how long it lasts yet – but Essie usually lasts 5-7 days for me. Hope you all had a lovely Easter, too much chocolate and are enjoying your day off today!
Valentine’s Day is always a great excuse to add a few hearts and other girly stuff to your regular manicure. After last year’s Valentines Day manicure (see the post HERE) I couldn’t help but play around with pink, red and sparkles again this year. After seeing this super cute d.i.y. on The Beauty Department I decided to try it for myself. Even though cutting out the heart took a few attempts, I am really happy with how the Valentine’s Day manicure turned out this year! I may even try different color combinations for during the year as well. And since there are still 2 days to go there is plenty of time for you to try your own Valentines Day mani :)
