It is official, I'll be going to Berlin Fashion Week at the end of this month! I really can't wait to see how it will be like and if it's worth the hype. Until then I have some busy two weeks in front of me, in which I will have to finalize some projects for my internship and check my Master's thesis for the last time before sending it in. So far July will be a really calm month and I'm not yet sure if I will enjoy it or miss the busy times. This week for example I attended 3 events, had 3 dance classes and yesterday I had a first performance with my dance group. Blogging-wise the week was filled with awesome beauty discoveries, which I'm now sharing along with other fashion and blogging highlights of the week:
# Blogger Event: Paris 8
On Wednesday the Luxembourgish perfumery Paris 8 invited some local bloggers for a fun morning full of beauty discoveries. Paris 8 sell a lot of exclusive brands so you will find some perfumes and beauty products there that you won't find anywhere else in Luxembourg. I especially enjoyed discovering the perfume brand Memo which has been created by a couple that loves to travel. Their scents are all unique and so are their beautiful golden perfume bottles.
# Nail Polish: Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire
Another discovery that I made at the Paris 8 event is the nail polish from Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire range. The shade variety isn't huge but I immediately fell for the colour "Black Perfecto". It's a really dark brown with a purple shimmer. However the best thing about the nail polishes from this range is the fact that they smell like the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire perfumes. Honestly there is no stench when applying these nail polishes and even after several days my nails smell like cherry candies. Btw: At Paris 8 you can even get these nail polish bottles engraved so they would make the perfect present for any nail polish addict. (photo by Paris 8)
# Launch: Refinery29 Germany
Refinery29 is one of the US's best known sites for fashion and lifestyle news. This week the German version of the newsportal launched and it's definitely worth checking out! Modern topics, awesome visual content and lots of featured bloggers are their formula for success. Here's the link.
# Outfit Obsession: Denise Kastull
Desi and Nisi are twin sisters who write the popular German fashion blog teetharejade. I find their outfits really inspiring, and especially Nisi's casual chic looks. This one is perfection to me and I love the setting which goes so well with it. In case you were wondering, the photos were taken in the Botanical Garden in Berlin. Find all the photos here.
# Beauty Discovery: Tatcha
I have been sent this Tatcha discovery set last year but as I had so many other products to use up first, I never managed to actually try the products. Yesterday evening however I gave them a first go and I'm amazed! I can wait to use the products long-term and share the results with you in a review. For a first impression you can check out this post.
