CRAVINGS: milano fashion week

While I am sitting at the gate, waiting to board my flight to Milan, I leave you guys with some cravings for fashion week. Trust me, packing for 3 days in Milan is harder than a 2-week long trip to anywhere else. What does one wear to fashion week? Especially in Italy, where women seem to have fashion in their genes. In the end, I decided to go with a few typical “Vicky Pieces”, because after all, I want to feel like myself! There’s a full agenda planned for the next 3 days, but one of my personal highlights will be the AIGNER show (I’ll keep you updated via Instagram). Ever since I spotted Miss Maddalena a while ago, it has been on my wishlist! These past few months, I’ve really loved crossbody bags, since they make life so much easier. Especially when I am running around town all day, I love having my hands free for car keys, cell phone, a coffee on the go and of course my camera. My flared jeans are packed as well, and this is one look that I’d love to wear these next few days.

HOTEL REVIEW: Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

For the first part of our stay in Abu Dhabi, we decided on the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, which is located across the canal from the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second I saw the view on the hotel photos, I was sold. Plus, the entire hotel is styled in Arabic decor, which is something I wanted. Usually I prefer more modern interios, however, for Abu Dhabi, I thought the more traditional look was perfect. Greeted by dates and coffee, we immediately loved the place. Even more when we entered our room (we booked a deluxe room) and saw the private balcony and canal view – of course with the mosque in the background.

OUTFIT: #soliverstylesession in Berlin

Those that follow along on Instagram (@vickyheiler) already know that I flew out to Berlin last Friday for a super fun event with s.Oliver and a whole bunch of other bloggers. We had an amazing two days of getting to know the brand (including s.Oliver denim and s.Oliver premium), shooting streetstyle looks, learning a thing or two about SEO and the most fabulous dinner at Crackers Berlin. I already shared a preview of my outfit of choice on Instagram on Friday, and since you guys seemed to love the look as much as I did, I can’t wait to share today’s outfit and some impressions from the #soliverstylesession with you guys. That pale pink coat was love at first sight, and I have literally been wearing it all week – be sure to also check out the newest editor’s pick over on The Daily Dose.

BEAUTY TALK: so shiny

During the Winter I generally have a harder time with my skin, nails and hair. The dry heating air seems to literally make my skin crackle, my nails break at every occasion (that’s why I currently even have a thin layer of gel over my regular nails) and my hair, which is usually super easy going, looks more dull and flies all over the place, due to it being static. But I don’t care if it is Winter or not, I want shiny, pretty hair!! Luckily, Guhl recently came to my rescue by introducing me to their new “Seidenglanz(= silk shine) line for dry and dull hair - it seriously only took one wash and rinse for silky hair.
Some of you may remember this video, where I mentioned that I was on the lookout for new hair products in terms of shampoo and conditioner. Well, I’ve tried a few products since, and all are good in their own way. However, the new line by Guhl really impressed me. I used a whole bunch of Guhl products for my hair last Winter (remember this post?) and so it actually doesn’t come as a surprise, that I love the new line. Not to mention the pink packaging …

Do any of you use Guhl products? Which are your favorite?
