Beauty Talk : Favourite Summer Scents

07.08.2014

I love sunshine and summer, how about you ? It's just so nice to stroll around short clothes and living easy instead of packing up for snow and rain and watching you're not getting a flu from being cold. 
I just put on a romper and sandals these days, getting my hair up in a chignon and put on a bit of BB cream and lip polish - and I'm ready to go. 
And of course I never leave the house without a spritz of a nice summery scent.
I've always loved nice perfumes and I have to admit I got quite a collection - 
so I have some of my all time summer favourites to show you today !


'Miss Dior' by Dior

One of my all time favourite perfumes ever is a real classic : 'Miss Dior' by Dior. You may know that I love their make-up already and of course their clothing and accessories ( I mean how can someone not want a Lady Dior bag ? Come on. ) and it's not anything from it with their perfumes. And I am such a sucker for nice packaging - they just got me with the houndstooth pattern on the bottom of the bottle and this little ribbon. 'Miss Dior' is a fruity fresh slightly citrussy scent with a floral heart - perfect for summertime.



'Ginger Essence and White Tea' by Rituals

Another favourite of mine is Rituals' 'Ginger Essence and White Tea' perfume. It's a perfect mix of citrussy, floral and subtle smelling ingredients that just add up to a sexy summer scent. I also love their bottles because I think the closure is just so unique : a little wooden brick engraved with the Rituals logo. So cool ! I am definitely getting my hands on some of their other scents too now that I loved this one so much.


'Acqua di Gioia' by Giorgio Armani

You probably can remember the ad for this one - at least I do. Stunning Emily Di Donato looking at you with her beautiful blue eyes. Imagine a scent to the scenery on the advert - it's exactly what 'Acqua di Gioia' smells like. This is definitely one of the freshest scents I've ever smelt and I love it. It has glimpses of mint and citron, jasmine and brown sugar and let me tell you : it smells divine.



'Light Blue' by Dolce & Gabbana

This one is an absolute classic and that is totally understandable. It's a perfect blend of jasmine, amber, bamboo, rose, cedar and traces of apple. You probably can't imagine all of that together so I'd suggest that you go to the store and try it next time because it really is worth it believe me !

I woke up like this

03.08.2014

Hey loves ! Time for a new outfit post on the blog. This one has been one of my favourites in the last weeks because it's casual but cool at the same time. When I saw the 'I woke up like this' shirt I just had to have it !
It just adds a twist to a simple outfit. Paired with my new yellow Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC and some gold accessories to go with my MiuMiu suede heels, it's just perfect for a trip to the city or running errands.

The Gommino

25.07.2014

What have you guys been up to lately ? With the beautiful weather outside this outfit was my go to style the last weeks. 
It's just so comfy ! Of course I wore my Tod's Gommino loafers for running errands in the city - 
they're super light and make you feel like you're walking on air.
I don't wear flats that often and I am a total high heel girl but I just fell in love with these ! Isn't the mint green colour super gorgeous ? Perfect for summer time ! 

By the way, if you love Tod's Gomminos as much as I do, you can share your images wearing the iconic flats on the
new site they just initiated and don't forget to tag your instagram pics with #todsgommino.

Pink Falabella

20.07.2014

It's been a while ! I am so happy to come back to blogging now. It was quite an intense time the last months but now I am all in for some new posts. As you may have noticed from the title I want to introduce you to my newest baby : the pink 'Falabella' bag by Stella McCartney. I searched hours for the perfect pink bag and when I saw this sexy little thing I just couldn't help myself... and ordered it right away.  At first I thought : 'Wait, this isn't real leather ? Why pay so much money for it ?' But then I googled for some reviews and just got it. And I have to admit that I love it ! The chain detailing, the beautiful suede-like material and the lining on the inside ( which you can clean so easily - big plus ! ) just make it the perfect bag to pull off every outfit. Mrs. McCartney has so many beautiful designs that I am even thinking about getting another one, for example this beautiful antique rose one, isn't it super gorgeous ?
Another love of mine are my new Miu Miu blue suede heels - I immediately fell in love with them when I saw them online. They are just perfect to pair with really anything and - believe it or not - super comfortable to walk in.

Love for Glitter

23.03.2014

Good morning loves ! I am writing this post snuggled up in a big towel after my morning shower while the rain is crackling onto the window. There are quite strange weather situations going on the last two weeks here in the south of Germany, one day it's raining and the next day you can enjoy 20 degrees and the sun is shining bright.
When we shot this look it was beautiful weather except for the wind that was blowing, I had to get my hair fixed like every ten seconds !
This time I went for a casual look spiced up with some special pieces : a Shourouk statement necklace,
Miu Miu glitter sneakers and my beloved glitter clutch by Mawi ( I am obsessed with Mawi jewellery right now ! )

The perfect princess dress

16.03.2014

Every girl dreams of the perfect princess dress. And my personal search has finally come to an end because I couldn't be happier with my new princess dress by MSGM. Isn't the floral pattern super gorgeous ? And I swear, the fabric is the most comfortable and soft ever. Perfection in a dress. Paired with my Miu Miu sunnies and bag, as well as my Sergio Rossi heels it's just perfect for special occasions in summer or if you just want to feel special ( we all need that from time to time, right ? )

Red riding hood

12.03.2014

Okay now this is going to be a 'first' on the blog : I am wearing a dress.
Weird, because I really love them and I have a huge collection : maxi, short, princessy..you name it.
When I saw this pretty feminine red dress by Opening Ceremony I immediately had to get my hands on it,
same with the See by Chloé black booties.
Thanks to Monnier Frères I had the perfect bag and necklace to go with the other pieces : a beautiful Phillip Lim Pashli satchel in sky blue and a statement necklace from one of my favourite jewelry brands - Shourouk !
I always thought that pink and red don't do well together but the dress with this gorgeous necklace -
they are the perfect match, right ?
