sorry

Hey you beautiful reader,

First I want to say sorry for the lack of blogging. Two days ago my Mac decided to take a bath, so atm I'm living the life without a computer (which makes it a little bit complicated to blog). I'm hoping to be hundred percent back at the end of the week, but in the mean time I'm going to try my best to give you at least something - there are too much interesting things happening in the fashion industry these days!

the week on
INSTAGRAM

Good Sunday morning (?) you all. This week is almost history and the next one is just around the corner. But before we kick the new week off, here is some of my favourite snaps on Instagram from the past week. I have eyed everything from fall inspiration, the ultimate summer party dress (and the perfect summer hair; SHORT+BANGS) and not forget the take-me-there picture. Enjoy and have a beautiful Sunday!

weekend inspirationGOLDEN DAYS

Have a nice weekend beautiful people, but first (if you're too last minute) here is some weekend inspiration right from the catwalk. One word: Let it shine! This weekend I would love to combine my favourite colour – black of course – with the most stylish metal GOLD! For the killer metallic look add some silver on the top and your ready to light up the night.
Pants from J.Crew, top from Helmut Lang, blouse from Zara, nail polish from Dior, earrings from H&M, heels from Zara, clutch from Balenciaga.

the catch
ZARA SPLIT SKIRT

One of my favourite pieces for SS15, that you definitely will see a lot of when warmer days arrives, is the high split skirt in different lengths, materials and colours. Not only is the skirt very sophisticated and work friendly, it's also a hot friend for late nights. Some days ago I found this beautiful split skirt in no other place than Zara and the best part of it; it was on SALE. I can't wait to use this sexy lady with loose tops, short jackets, pointy flats – or high heeled sandals when it's time for drinks with the girls – and not to forget statement earrings.  Très chic indeed!

FACIAL CARE



As I wrote in one of my previous posts one of my New Years resolutions is to take more and better care of my skin. In 2015 I want to get rid of a bad habit I have (call it a apathy if you want): A long time I've only been washing and moisturising my face every morning and evening, without any help from other products. This has already changed! Here are the beauty products you can find on my bathroom shelf at the moment:

1. Since my skin tends to be a bit unpredictable, it's especially important for me to choose the right cleaning products to prevent damage caused by harsh environmental factors, unfortunate outbreak and dryness. A friend of mine recommended me three Shiseido products from the 'Ibuki' series, which I now gladly use both in the morning and before I go to sleep. In addition to my daily cleansing routine I'm using Clinique's '7 Day Scrub Cream' up to several times a week to prepare my face for the cleaning.

2. After cleaning my face I always lubricate it with a moisturizing face cream. I swear to the super good day and night creams from EVE LOM, since the products fits perfectly to my combined skin, as they contain both vitamins and oils that maintains the skin's natural moisture level.

3. I've always wanted to get the most out of my cleaning routine so in 2014 I invested in the no.1 Cleansing device to see if it can give my skin the little extra – and it definitely did! Clarisonic Mia 2 is my best friend both at home and on the road. In addition to providing a comfortable facial cleaning the delicious skincare brush removes makeup, dirt and oil 6X better hands alone. In other words; a real must-have!

These products are still on my wish list:

Anti Shine-Gel from Peter Thomas Roth,  face oil from Estée Lauder, Beauty Flash Balm from Clarins, cleanser from EVE LOM, Le Weekend from Chanel and face oil from Rodin.
