We all know the famous beauty boxes that are being delivered on a monthly basis to beauty addicts all over the world. My absolute favourite has got to be the 'My Little Box' which comes up with the cutest surprises in the history of beauty boxes. Unfortunately, just like so many of the good things in life, the 'My Little Box' isn't available in Luxembourg. I could use my P.O. box to get it sent here but that would cost me an additional 5€ and let's be honest, beauty boxes are already expensive enough. So instead of being annoyed by the injustice of living in one of Europe's smallest countries, I decided to do some research on which beauty boxes are actually available for delivery to Luxembourg. And surprisingly I got more results than I had thought. Do you already know these 7 boxes from Germany, France and Belgium?
Today I'm not really in the mood to talk about my outfit. My feelings are a mess these days and I find it hard to really concentrate on a specific subject. So instead I want to write down a few thoughts about gratitude, as it's something I've been thinking about today. I don't know how about you but I tend to be really ungrateful sometimes. I wallow in self-pity even though I have no reason to feel sorry about myself. The major problem is that we easily forget about the good things in our lives and only think about the bad. We remember every insult but overhear the compliments we get. So after a while we seal ourselves off from others because we think everyone wants to harm us, but we completely forget that we need others, and what's more important, that they need us. Feeling sorry for yourself is easy, but caring about others requires courage. Let's all be a bit braver these days.
One of the best things about Christmas has got to be the launch of Christmas themed beauty products (along with the launch of Christmas themed food of course). No wonder that this blog always turns more into a beauty rather than a fashion blog around the last 3 months of the year.
The full lookbook of H&M's latest designer coup is out and it reveals that the collection created by the Parisian fashion house Kenzo might be more wearable than the first campaign photos suggested after all. In case you don't remember, the first photos the world got to see of Kenzo x H&M featured a catsuit style combo of tiger print pants and pullovers in red and blue, combined with pink tiger print boots. Even though I am pretty sure that we'll be seeing these boots on Instagram more than we'd actually like to, I don't think that this whole tiger print thing will appeal to the masses. But luckily there's this other side of the collaboration that is still really colourful but has this dreamy boho-latina-folklore touch with a modern twist. Due to the colours and cuts most clothes can be worn both in winter and summer so investing in one of these pieces might not be so stupid after all. In a world where I'd have way more zeroes on my bank account, I would go for the following 5 pieces:
Jackets and coats are often being considered as a necessity that protects us from cold or rain. A lot of fashion bloggers therefor put off their coat when shooting looks in the wintertime, because it hides their actual outfit. However to me the secret of having a good style is being able to wear outwear in a way that it naturally looks like a part of your outfit. Like you were intending to wear that very jacket when you decided on your pants, pullover and shoes.
