Those pouts

Happy Sunday loves! It’s been a crazy long weekend. I was out with a friend on Friday for spontaneous drinks and was hoping to be home early. Well, figures I came home at 2.30am. Same thing with yesterday – after a full day of studies I left in the evening for a goodbye party and clubbing afterwards. I was so exhausted when I got there that I thought I’d never manage the evening. Well, turns out I went over the point of tiredness and partied until 4.30am this morning! Sadly I couldn’t sleep in much because I always wake up semi-early. Tonight will surely be an early one for me though. I feel like I’ve become to old for this – and honestly, I probably shouldn’t even be saying that.

As most of you have noticed I have this thing for pouts. Honestly, as soon as my selfie camera comes into play or someone puts a lense in my direction – I pout. And as much as I love some of those smile pictures, I usually still pout. I swear it’s a characteristic I can’t get rid of. But what I’m getting at is that I always place a lot of focus on the face (lips, eyes, brows – the whole game). I’ve gotten a little lazy these days with make-up, though tried fake lashes the first time last night (and generally got really into applying some more!). Pretty damn nice when you open those fully lashed eyes!

For that perfect pout I found a new product on the market that just about enhances it to perfection. It’s a lip filling serum, called Vivi Lips N°1, and I really got a hook on it. It doesn’t give me those Kylie lips just yet (maybe luckily), but it surely does fill the lips a bit, makes them plumper and less folds (wrinkles?) appear. After application you notice a little tingle on your lips and voila – give it 10-15 minutes and you start seeing a slight yet natural difference. Oh, and it’s a swiss made – which I always appreciate. We live in a world where almost nothing is „home“ made anymore when it comes to products and most of my products probably come from some Asian country. So if there is one thing I always enjoy investing in, it’s a product from where I live. So I thought I’d share my finding with you on this lazy sunday (though I admit, I can’t even sit still today). With that, I’ll jump off to start cleaning a bit and wish you a great end to the weekend. xo

Summer Tatt’s

 

It’s summer and all I do is partayy! Of course I’m kidding – as much as I would love to constantly be running from pool party to pool party, the reality looks quite a bit different. Work and uni are steady and need lots of input, yet, the weekends are fully mine. I’ve been going to summer parties here in Zurich the past weeks, every weekend and really loving it. Now, if I have noticed one thing we cannot miss out on this summer, it’s the shiny summer tattoos. Both silver and gold tattoos are now part of my collection for these hot summer days, though I (of course) love myself some more gold.

Now this really shouldn’t be an excuse, but – can summer be one when it comes to dragging here on the blog? I know I owe you guys quite a few updates and more regular content, so I will try my best. Hold on and bare with me (and excuse the iPhone photo quality), as these past weeks and upcoming 2 are quite full in my agenda! Have a lovely week, xo

Spot that Brow

May I introduce myself? I am such a fan of Rihanna – be it her style, her music, her outfits, her amazing accent or the personality (or of the one we can assume). Regardless of the music (I admit to having every song), I always have been inspired by her magical, continous change of style – it is breathtaking, so fresh! Now I am surely not the only fan and absolutely not the biggest fan out there (no posters, haha!) but knowing that there are so many out there, one can approximately calculate how many she inspires. Given the fact that she has ever so often now, almost revolutionised fashion, inspired designers over and over and oh, has become a designer, she is one to watch for new trends. Here it goes: her brows! Looking at the new cover from Bitch Better Have My Money, I would almost bet that we will be seeing some more of these straight, in your face, bold eyebrows on one or the other upcoming runway! What do you think of the brows – yay or nay? xo

Route Natural

Happy Sunday my lovely readers – & Happy International Women’s Day! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend so far – I surely did! I drove to Düsseldorf (Germany) on Friday afternoon to visit the family and have been doing so ever since. Yesterday was pretty relaxed – I went to the hairdresser and we enjoyed the evening at home. Today we spent the whole day in Maastricht (Netherlands), which was absolutely incredible. The weather is amazing – it feels just like spring! Back to my hair now – I am slowly but surely hitting the Route to Natural. I normally always add more highlights or at least get these freshened up. This time round I actually colored my roots much darker than the blonde I am used to – it’s quite close to my natural hair color. I was shocked to be honest. I knew my hair color was quite dark, but this dark? I fell out of my blonde heaven once I saw it and I am still only, slowly getting used to it. I surely love the color, and I love the fact that it’s got the ombre effect – I was able to keep my blonde on the bottom. However, as much as I like it, I still feel awkward and just not like myself when I look into the mirror.. Let’s see if I get used to it!

In regards to the actual coloring – I love my hairdresser here in Düsseldorf. She does an amazing job with whatever I request from her. Be it dark, going towards natural or all the way blonde because I cannot do without it. I am sure she will have to help me go blonde again at some point – I am just such a blonde-love. However, for now I will try to get used to it and actually keep it for a while. It’s just better for my hair if I give it some time to regrow and not bleach it on a constant.

What do you think about the darker hair?

My hairdresser is called Aspasia – she is absolutely great at what she does! You can ask for an appointment with her at the hairdresser Andreas Kohlhoff by calling 0211 8632007 (Germany).

Oh – and sorry for the iPhone quality only, it’s the only camera I had at hand :-). Wishing you all a great start into the week tomorrow! xo

ps. I don’t quite know why my photos are shown turned-around on some devices – will need to get that one fixed!

 

Sparkling Swarovski

Happy February! It’s the month of love and Valentine’s day is coming up! How exciting! I already got a portion of love this past weekend from my best friend. Technically, I guess I could say it daily – I have a couple of besties in my life and I swear I couldn’t imagine it without them. I am so grateful for all the memories, for all the fun times I was able to share with them, for all their time they give me when I just need to let some of my worries out, the countable times when I just need someone to be next to me or when I need to tell someone about my broken heart. They are there for me no matter what – it’s like family. Simultaneoulsy, I try to give those things back and am thankful for everyday I have them in my life.

This past weekend I saw one of my best friends again, Virginia, for coffee in Zurich. She is the one I am planning my upcoming vacation with in March and I am uber excited about it! What I didn’t expect is the present I got from her. It’s actually my birthday present from November, which she has been keeping for a while now because we somehow haven’t managed to see each other as often as we would have liked in the past weeks. She lives in Geneva so I only see her from time to time – everytime being special. She is one of those friends you can gossip about anything with, laugh at the weirdest jokes with and one that will listen to me when I have all sorts of unimportant ‚girl problems‘ in life.

I love wearing earrings – I need a pair on a daily basis. I actually don’t switch around all too much with earrings, as I want them to be elegant, yet classy enough to wear at work. Therefore, big, great fashionable earrings don’t really work whilst on business. These earrings however are perfect for wearing everyday. I love how they have gold on them, which fits my rings and watch just perfectly. I actually made a couple of shots of me wearing these on Sunday, so I will be sharing them with you this week as well.

As for now, I wish you all a great start into the new week, the new month and lots and lots of love! xo
