Usually I have a lot of posts to share in December. Not only is it the month of dressing up, but also the month of looking back and of making plans. I did certainly have a lot of things to look back on this year and I never had as many plans for a new year as for 2017. However with having started my new job two months ago, I'm still not back in the blogging rut.
I'm back with a beauty review and it's about a brand I hadn't hear of before. Dr. Juchheim is a direct selling brand that was founded by a German doctor. Just like any other direct selling beauty company, it promises revolutionary products with an immediate 'wow' effect. One of the brand's bestsellers is the ByeByeCellulite cream which I tried together with the Long Lash Effect Serum. I tried the products on request of one of the Dr. Juchheim consultants in Luxembourg, who provided me with the two products. As always that doesn't change anything to my honest opinion that I'll now share in this post.
Fall/winter is the season for buying new cute boots. And I don't think I have another pair of shoes, that I wear quite as much as booties. After all fall and winter are longer in Luxembourg than spring and summer (or at least that's how I feel about seasons here). And as I need to wear my booties with basically every outfit, I went for all black ones last year. However sometimes they just disappear in my outfits, especially when I'm wearing black tights. So when Sacha offered me to choose a new pair of shoes from their range, I decided to opt for something more daring to dress my feet this fall/winter. That's how I ended up with these dope buckle boots in taupe beige.
It seems like last week was the week of store openings in Luxembourg city! On Thursday I was invited to the inauguration of Christian Louboutin and the new concept store Cheer Up Store. On Friday Lancel opened its first store in Luxembourg and Vol(t)age opened the doors of its second shop in town. On Saturday then, Luxembourg finally got a beautiful Jo Malone store, which I will check out tomorrow. Today however, I wanna tell you a bit about the store openings of Christian Louboutin and Cheer Up Store:
As you may remember I went to Sephora a few weeks ago to discover some of their novelties (check them out here). Apart from their own Sephora Collection, they obviously also had some awesome new stuff from the world's best known cosmetic brands, among them Urban Decay. Even though it's a really hyped brand, I hadn't tried any UD products so far, so I was really curious to try this lipstick palette.
I am quite late with my post about the Fashion Days Luxembourg, which already took place two weeks ago. However I didn't want to hide these pictures from you, as I think that some of the collections that were shown have yet again been quite brilliant. For the context of this fashion event in Luxembourg, you may want to take a look at my posts from last year here and here. Before we start to talk about the collections however, I also want to say a few words about the organisation.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This year it's hard for me to get in the Christmas mood though, as I won't be having a day off in between or before holidays. Therefor it's always good to start with Christmas decorations a bit earlier. Also when Caseapp asked me to choose another product from their store, I knew it had to be something wintery. That's why I went for a cute snow illustration by one of my favourite illustrators, Magalie Foutrier. I also designed a more neutral case to use after winter time, and I think it matches quite well, considering that I'm a working girl now.
