A perfect summer maxi dress in white and blue….

Hi guys,
if there would be one color combination which makes the perfect season it would be white and blue for summer. This is such a light and airy color combination which matches perfect for any ocassion like a boat trip or brunch or a garden party. I have choosen this beautiful long ethnic print maxi halter sleeveless dress from the Rosegal online shop (you should really have a look at their variety on maxi dress sleeveless). It is perfect for a hot and humid day. The dress is made of a really light fabric and although it is white and doesn´t have a lining it isn´t seethrough so you don´t have to worry about that. For me is has the perfect length to wear with flats or sandals with a small heel (I am 1,64 cm / 5″5) and guys it is under 20!! There is also a navy shade with white pattern available. But they only offer onesize for all so be sure to check the size guide.
I paired it with a pair of silver sandals I got from Zara (from the sale) but you could wear a pair of espandrilles as well. Therefore a straw bag would match perfectly but I took my navy leather handbag with me.

Beauty and Make-up products – the latest….

….


Hi guys,
 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)

I am always curious for new beauty products or trying out existant brands I haven´t used before.
So these are some I had tried out lately. I wanted to write about them in my monthly favorites post but this would have been way to much and the post would have been way to long. 

Watch is from Michael Kors (no longer available in this size – similar here)

You all know how much I love lipsticks and of course I had to try out these ones from Manhattan as they came out – the moisture renew lipstick line. First they had just a few colors but not they offer one for every taste. These are no matte lipsticks they have kind of a glossy finish which I also like from time to time. After getting all the matte products it is nice that you can switch if you like. 
The two colors I have choose are in the pink/berry tones. 
The left one is 900 Crystal Berry and the rigth one is 940 Glam Plum.

Another product I tried out is the L´oréal Paris Skin Perfection face creme. I am always or let me say still on the hunt for the perfect face creme for me. There had been many I tried from AOK to Garnier to Bebe to Neutrogena and the list goes on and on. I have a mixed skin type which means I need mattifying for my nose and chin but at the same time I need lots of hydration cause my skin gets dry very quickly. Not easy. I used this one for about 6 weeks now and I am satisfied with the product. It is a day and night creme in one and for about 12 Euro it is totally fine.

This might be my favorite oil of all time. Let me start from the beginning. I had neurodermatitis when I was a child – really bad in fact – and there are still some dry areas on my body (two on my arms, one on my foot and another one on my neck. From time to time (and I still don´t know the cause for sure) they start to grow and get really really dry and from scratching they become even worse. So I bougth BI-OIL to give it a try. If it can prevent stretch marks in pregnancy maybe it could help my with my skin problems too and it works. It is so so good. It moves into your skin really quick and is not sticky at all. The smell is so good. They offer two sizes. I have the smaller one but I definitely get the bigger bottle when I repurchase it. I hope they never stop producing this product.

These two are just for fun and for the love of pink. And there is a huge love. As I like anything pink and polka dots I had to have those two and I needed a new lash curler anyway. It is from the brand (ebelin) our drug store carries but here are similar ones. The twezzer is from essence (similar here also cute) and it isn´t anything brand new or world changing – I just liked the design and the price point.

I wanted to try this one cause I have been using the egg shaped lipbalm from EOS for years now. It is the sweet mint flavor and it is totally matching with the egg balm but I also like this one. The shape is more praticle for carrying in a small handbag. It isn´t as big as the usual balms.


Blush Berry from the Maybelline Color Show series is my favorite nail polish at the moment. I have also written a whole post about this hues here. I think their polishes are totally fine for 3 Euro. The color is drying really quick and it is high pigmented so you only have to use one layer. 

As always thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.

Rosewood – my go-to color for make-up products….

….

Hi guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Post contains affiliate Links-not sponsored)

the Easter celebrations are almost over (we are heading to one last brunch today – gonna be the third one in three days) and we had lots of family time and good food – a lot of good food. Today we are heading to Florians grandma and in the afternoon we have a little spare time. I have to clean up and maybe I am finding a few of the easter eggs which aren´t found. We headed to a great new Sushi place on Saturday. It was beyond delicious. We have to go back to work on Tuesay – unfortunately. Another 10 weeks to go until we are heading to our next vacation.

But let´s talk about some pink stuff.

Don´t we all have our favorite colors for beauty products whether it is super trendy at the moment or not ? I think so. 
My go to color for blush and lipstick had always been a deeper rose shadow. Nower days it is called Rosewood and I am really glad that this color got into fashion so there is a bigger range on products in this color from different brands.

Die Osterfeierlichkeiten sind fast schon wieder vorbei (heute fahren wir zum Dritten und Letzten Osterbrunch) und dabei hatten wir wirklich eine schöne Zeit und viel Spass. Heute Mittag sind wir bei Florians Oma und am Nachmittag haben wir ein bisschen Freizeit. Am Samstag Abend haben wir ein neues Sushi Restaurant in unserer Stadt ausprobiert und es war einfach nur köstlich. Morgen müssen wir schon wieder weiter arbeiten – leider, aber in ca. 10 Wochen fahren wir schon in den Urlaub (is noch ganz schön weit weg aber die Zeit vergeht schnell).

Here are my favorite products in this gorgeous color:

Nail polish:
Maybelline Color Show – Blush berry
Essie – In stitches
essence- English rose

Blush:
Manhattan – Elegant Violet
essence – berry me up!
Artdeco – Crystal garden blusher

Lip products:
L´oréal Paris Lip Paint / Laquer – Darling pink
Catrice Matt Lip Artist
L´oréal Paris Color Riche – Eva´s delicate rose
essence Lip Liner – Wish me a rose

What color do you prefer for your Make-up?
Take care. See you.
