Everyone is busy prepping for Christmas this week and not only the homes but also ourselves. I love to really dress up for Christmas. All sequins and bows cause why not?! The year is boring enough already so let´s get dolled up on a few days at least.

I wanted to share three hair styles with you today you can easily prepare and wear for the upcoming Christmas festivities.

Pearly Headband and Low Bun

This is probably the easiest and quickest of all three hairstyles I always find myself to long for when I have washed my hair and don´t want to curl or straighten it. All I am doing is to comb my hair and part it in the middle. Then I make a low bun and spray down any hair that´s left somewhere and then I add my headband and cute matching earrings. This is only taking about 5 minutes.

Clip-in hair bow

If you want to add some color and playfullness to your look I would recommend adding a big bow to your hair. If you want to get as much volume as possible I would say curl your hair first like I did and then comb it over your head after letting the curls cool down. This will give you a ton of volume. Now tease the top of your hair and fixate it with volume spray. I use the Syoss Volume Spray that also doubles as a hairspray. Then gather some strands and clip in the bow in the middle of the back of your head. This might need a buch of attempts if you want it to look perfect but it gets better quickly the more often you try.

Sparkly Rhinestone Hair Clip

If your hair is already curled (or however you like it) I would just touch it up with some root spray or volume spray and tease the hair on the back of your head a little. After that choose a side for a side part. I always use the same side cause I think it is the most flattering to part it to the right. Then I refresh my curls and add the sparkliest rhinestone clips I can find. Mine are super old and from Zara but I don´t use them very often so I love to re-use them. Such a classic look inspired by the old and golden era of Hollywood.

Hair tutorial – how I curl my hair and the products I am using….

^usually it was about the hair style but I kind of liked the outfit so….^

^first I section off my strands and I take those clips to keep them in place^

^I use heat protection spray for every layer befor I start to curl^

^I take out thin strands and comb them befor I start to curl –
always curling with the wand up (I know many might curl with the wand upside down but I prefer this – you have to find this out by yourself – also I am not using the clamp on the curling wand, I just wrap it around and hold it by myself for about 10 seconds)^

^I curl from the back to the front and from the bottom to the top to make sure I don´t forget a hair strand^

^for every layer I already curled I am using haispray so they will hold their shape^

^usually I don´t take a brush to comb through, I just take my fingers which works just fine for me (only brushing through on the second day cause the curls aren´t that pretty anymore then and when I comb them they turn to be pretty waves^

^last step is to use some hairspray to let the curls set in and make them last longer^

^et voilà^

Hi guys,

I have really been into curling my hair lately. There are always different kinds of hairstyles I love and others I don´t but that changes throughout the year or the years. And in fact I am coming back to each hairstyle from time to time.

So in today´s post I am sharing how I curl my hair and which products I use.
I have natural wavy hair which means if I let it air dry after washing it takes about three hours and I get half curls. The curls are half curly and half wavy and that looks pretty dumb. Also my hair looks really frizzy when it dries without any help (I had the prettiest curls as a little girl and also almost white hair).

Curling my hair works best if I start with fresh dry hair. So washing my hair before is a real must. As I have such dry scapl I am using the L´oréal anti-dandruff shampoo series. Since they don´t have a conditioner (which would be available in Germany) I am using an argan oil lotion afterwards and let it set in. I got this hair serum from Logona which makes my hair incredibly soft and silky. The main ingridient is argan oil so it also smells incredible good (and it is under 10€).

Before curling I am using the heat protection spray from GHD or the morrocan hair oil from Lee Stafford.

The curling wand I am using is the Remington keratin therapy pro curl. The barrel only has a diameter of 19 mm which make pretty small and curly curls. But if you comb through them (I only do that with my fingers) after they cooled they are really beautiful.

For the finishing touch I am using the Elnett De Luxe hairspray. This is my favorite hairspray since I was 16.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1506411028778?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

My top 8 summer beauty must haves….

….


Happy (finally) Friday guys,


if you had the view I am having today you would also think that this post is a little ironic (at least for today). It is raining cats and dogs and it only has 12 degrees so there is nothing about summer and hot days in the middle of August today.

But since we are still in the middle of summer (at least on the calendar) I am sharing my top 8 beauty prodcuts with you today. 

 Beauty products are differing from season to season as the climate and the temperatures change, so your skin and your body has different needs. I have rounded up all items I am currently using.



1. EOS – lipbalm with spf – grapefruit
I have been loving those little round lip balms since I saw them the first time in the US back in 2010. Ever since I have been using them all the time. You will always find one in my bathroom, at my night stand or in my handbag. They have new scents for their summer editions every year and I really like that they include SPF.


2. 4711 – fragranced towelettes 
This is one of my favorite scents for summer. It is such a fresh and light scent. This one is an all time classic and my mom used it when she was a teenager so this brand existst for a really long time now. They also have new summer editions for their perfumes every year. This year I got the towelettes. A package contains 16 pieces and I am using them on the go for a perfume touch up or just for a quick refreshment.


3. Treaclemoon – shower gel these lemonade days
Especially in summer I love the light and fruity shower 


4. Yves Rocher – shower gel grapefruit from Florida


5. Escada – perfume “Fiesta Carioca”
The first perfume I have ever owned was from Escada. It was called “Island Kiss” and I loved it. Sadly it was only for one season but they brought it out again a few years later so I stocked up on this but I am also testing the new one every year and I think they smell pretty similar which make them almost all a pretty hit. 


6. Yves Rocher –  Monoi de Tahiti –  shimmering body oil
I would call this my staple body oil for. I have been using and purchasing this for the 3rd year now and I still love it. Especially for vacation. It just has the right amount of glow and sparkle for tan skin. And the smell is oh so good.


7. Manhattan – pink lipstick color – fun fuchsia
You at least have to have one neon lipstick for summer whether it is a bold pink or orange or a vibrant red tone.


8. Korres –  red vine sun protection spray for hair 
I had been searching through a lot of local drug store for a sun protection spray for my hair but I was really disapointed that I only found one and the smell was just disgusting. So I went online and got this spray from Korres. You can use it right after washing your hair but also when it is dry. It is developed in Greece so it might be perfect for Germany cause we don´t have as much sun as they do over there. Haven´t used it only a few times since I got it so I might do a full review in my next favorites. 
(this product isn´t in the picutres cause it arrived a few days after shooting)

Yankee Candle – summer peach

As I am a candle hoarder and looking for new scents every season it is no surprise that I had to try out this summer scent. And peaches are one of the less fruit I really like.

L´oréal Paris – Elvital Planta Clear Anti – Dandruff for itching and hurting scalp….

….

Hi guys,

(post contains links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Links-not sponsored)
since I can think back I always had issues with my skin. I was suffering from Neurodermatitis when I was a baby/child. It has gone away to 95 %. I still have some areas where my skin gets dry and itchy sometimes that is why I am not using every drug store lotion I find. I always need a product which gives me the best hydration to prevent the spots from getting dry and start to itch.

About 2 months from now my scalp started to itch from using the wrong shampoo and conditioner and I also got dandruffs. This is nothing you want to have especially not for Spring when you can´t wear hats anymore. Maybe this came from my current shampoo or from the humidity changing so rapid from Winter to Spring. So I did some research online and I found a product I haven´t heard before. I knew the Elvital hair products from L´oréal but that they had this line was totally new to me.

I am now using the Planta Clear series. I got the shampoo with a calming effect (they have 3 different types) and a 7 day scalp lotion (this is a spray with different ingrdients).

They offer three different shampoos. One to freshen up, one to calm down and one to balance your scalp. I am using the one to calm down my scalp cause that matched my needs the most. Maybe some day I can switch to the fresh one. The scent is great. 

Another thing I am using is the seven day scalp lotion. This is a spray with different oils and other ingredients in it. First I was a little speptical because I thought this would make my hairline greasy but it really doesn´t and my hair is smelling so fresh. Those two products work really well for me and the itching has totally stopped. I am really glad I found this. 

Thanks for stopping by. 
Take care. See you.
