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?

BEAUTY TALK: my top 5 hair products (video)

If I had to narrow it down to the most asked question I receive, it would definitely have to be about my hair. It is weird to me, since I probably don’t see my hair the way others do (and I know what a fight it usually is in the bathroom), but of course I want to try to answer your questions, and today I wanted to share my personal top 5 hair products with you. All of these have been in use for a long time and work amazingly for me personally. Find out more after the click…

TRAVELS: Servus, Oktoberfest

As you guys know, this year was a first for me – I attended the Oktoberfest in Munich with a big, fun blogger-gang for the #coverprwiesn! It is such a different world, the second I got of at the train station I knew the so-called “Wiesn” takes over an entire city for 17 days. People in Lederhosen and Dirndl (the traditional clothing) literally everywhere! All of us girls wore dresses by HALLHUBER and I loved mine (see the entire look HERE). An old lady even came up to us and asked to take pictures because she thought our Dirndl were the prettiest around ♥ To make my look a bit more modern, I decided to wear the Dirndl with accessories by Zalando. I know you guys have seen my ASH boots here on the blog quite a bit (major love) and I also got the perfect Love Moschino crossbody bag – which I can definitely recommend for the Oktoberfest, trust me you want to have your hands free for the big beer Maß! On the day of the event, KMS California had 3 stylists for us, which were nice enough to help with our hair. I got a big braided wreath around my head, which I absolutely loved, and some of you already commented so nicely about on Instagram! To give you a better idea of what our day was like, here are some impressions from the Cover PR Wiesn Special 2014 with AnjaAnniDesi & NisiFranziJanaJulianeMashaKiki and Olga

VIDEO: easy big curls – tutorial

Recently I have been getting a crazy amount of questions regarding my curls that I’ve worn in a few pictures. You guys wrote emails, asked on Instagram, commented here on the blog … so I would say it is about time to let you guys into the secret (which isn’t really a secret). I am currently in the process of planning my outfit for this year’s Oktoberfest in Munich for the #coverprwiesn, as I’ll be going for the first time (yay!!). I already received my gorgeous Dirndl last week, and this week I decided on the accessories and hair. At first I thought I wanted to wear my hair in a braided up-do, but then decided that a Dirndl + braids would look suuuper “Heidi-style”, so I will probably wear my hair in curls, just like in today’s tutorial. I have teamed up with KMS California to show you guys that it only takes a few products and about 20 minutes of your time to get easy big curls that will stay in shape all day (and night).
