Beauty Empties September & October

LES COSMÉTIQUES DESIGN PARIS "Nectar of Nature" Shaving Gel

Even though this brand is exclusively sold in Carrefour supermarkets, it seems pretty interesting to me. I must admit that I tried the shaving gel solely because of the cute packaging, but the product itself managed to convince me as well. It has a really natural smell and is gentle to my skin, too. 


7 Things I'm Currently Loving


Not long ago I was contacted by this brand that allows you to create your own case for a phone or tablet. I knew I wanted to try the service when I saw that they also have customizable clear cases because they can be super pretty with the right design. For my golden iPhone 6 case design I chose this cute illustration by Inslee Haynes and centered it in a way that the Apple logo would be covered. I got my case only few days later and the print was indeed well arranged and of a high quality.


Fashion Days Luxembourg (Part II)

Fashion Days Luxembourg Casino 2000 Mondofr-Les-Bains 2015

Let's start the week with more local fashion, shall we? Yesterday I already introduced you to the Fashion Days Luxembourg, the first fashion event of its kind here in Luxembourg. Today I want to show you some more of the startup designers, but also the collections of experienced designers, that could be seen on Saturday evening.


Fashion Days Luxembourg (Part I)

I first heard about the Fashion Days Luxembourg back in spring or so, and since then I have been looking forward to the event. This weekend it finally took place during two days in Luxembourg's most known casino. As you know I attended a few similar events in Belgium this year, so I was particularly eager to see if the concept of fashion days would find recognition in Luxembourg, too. What I witnessed from the organization seemed a bit chaotic at first, but in the end everything worked out just fine (at least on the second day, when I attended).


Lush Christmas Range 2015

Lush Christmas range collection products 2015

Christmas is fast approaching and so are the Christmas treats. My favourites are certainly the ones from Lush, because they are calorie-free. And after the presentation of their new range yesterday morning, I'm definitely in the mood for Christmas now (think cinnamon smell, Christmas songs and crafting cute polar bears).
So what is new this year and what do you need to get your hands on if you're a Lush and Christmas lover like me?


Outfit: Brussels

A few weeks ago I've been discussing with some friends about how important it is to leave your space from time to time to not feel so constrained and refuel on inspiration. And that's exactly what I did last weekend. On Saturday I took the train to Brussels to visit my friend and fellow blogger Claude who studies there. I've never been in the Belgian capital but it had been on my must-see list for ages. Besides some sightseeing in between, we had mainly planned fashion and blogging related activities though.


L'Occitane "Melting Honey" Limited Edition & Home Collection

L'Occitane Melting Honey limited edition home collection

The South of France and especially the Provence have always inspired me. There is something quite peaceful about the old buildings, the lavender fields and the food markets. So how could I not like the products of L'Occitane, the brand that has managed to pack the whole Provence into well-smelling and effective beauty products?


Outfit: Mango Finds

Every new season requires some preparation. For a girl who's into fashion, this preparation consists in stocking up on that season's wardrobe essentials. In my case the scenario is always the same: Several weeks before the beginning of the season in question, I get flooded with pictures of what trendy people will be wearing during the next three months. By the beginning of the season I will have decided on which trends suits my style and which don't. After mentally checking my wardrobe I set up a list of things that I don't have yet, but absolutely want to wear that season. And then the endless lookout for the perfect wardrobe staples begins.


Manic(ure) Monday: Mauve Grey

Kiko Mauve Grey nail polish swatches

From my last manicure post you already know that I've totally fallen for all kinds of purple and lilac shades lately. While reddish berry shades go really well with warmer colours, this cool lilac shade is perfect for grey outfits, like the one I'm planning to wear tomorrow. Kiko's "Mauve Grey" is almost nude-ish but gets darker with more layers. Plus if you don't like glossy nail polish: This is the perfect colour to wear with a matte top coat.


Outfit: Military Blazer and Bow Blouse

Yesterday I went to the monthly meeting of the Luxembourgish blogger community. After coffee and tea some of us decided to shoot outfit pictures together. We also made use of the occasion to take a girl-power-group-picture which you can see at the end of the post.


Black Flat Booties for the Comfy-Casual Girl

The title says that this post is for the comfy-casual lady, but let's be honest: This is surely first and foremost for those women, who just like me, can't walk in heels all day long. I mean there are sooo many pretty boots and booties out there, but so many of them come with heels higher than 5cm. The ladies who buy those shoes, don't they feel pain in their feet or don't they have to walk during the day? Anyway if you're looking for flat boots you'll end up with the boring or the androgynous options. If then you have to add a colour choice (like black in my case because black goes with way more of my outfits than brown) you'll be left with a really small choice.


Outfit: 70s Girl

Most people think that in order to follow the latest trends, you necessarily have to buy new clothes and accessories every season. However everything comes back in fashion, be it after 5 years, or after 20 years. If for example you have a look at the 70s trend, you will notice that there are many style elements that we haven't been missing for 40 years. Just think about the flared pants: They are part of the 70s trend but they were also major style elements of 80s, 90s and even 2000s fashion. So instead of splurging on new clothes every season, we can simply keep our old clothes if they are still in a good quality and they are sure to be useful again sooner or later. Furthermore trends mostly aren't about single items but about moods, styles and looks. To me the 70s trend is about flared jeans, mini skirts, boots, turtlenecks and brown shades. So why do I need the A-line button-up skirt of brand xy, if a brown mini skirt from my closet will do the trick?


Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2015

You might be thinking that I'm completely nuts to already talk about Advent calendars when we've all only just accepted the fact that summer is over. But I'm not the only fanatic as my search results are showing me that some of you started having a look at my past beauty Advent calendar posts already. Also some of the best examples have already been released or will be available quite shorty and we all know that the most popular beauty Advent calendars are sold out in no time. My favourite this year has got to be the L'Occitane Advent calendar as it has been designed by the talented Kanako, illustrator at My Little Paris, and it's even one of the cheapest examples this year. So here I'm sharing all of the good beauty Advent calendars I'll be coming across during the next weeks which means that this post will regularly be updated with prices, release dates and availability, too!


Outfit: Boyfriend Jeans Meet Girlfriend Blazer

Only yesterday I've been thinking about how the more accurate name for my blog would have been "Mood of the Day", or something like that. Not just because I dress accordingly to my mood pretty much all of the time, but also because it happens to me that I hate an outfit only a few weeks after wearing (and loving) it.


Manalena Fall/Winter Collection

These pictures for the Manalena fall/winter collection have already been shot last March in Paris. And just as in the spring/summer collection, everybody can find something that suits their style in Maddalena Oliva's latest collection.
