RED ALERT

Once upon a time my favorite color was red. I have always loved the color, but the latest years I haven’t worn the color much (read: not at all). Why so? See that I can’t explain. Maybe because the color can be a bit daring to wear. It is a very strong color and it can sometime scream a little too much for attention. But for me it also expresses some sort of power. You definitely feel like a power woman when you wear red. Luckily red is back in the game. Big time. And no one said that you have to wear it head-to-toe. A small splash of the red color can be just enough.

JUMPING INTO SPRING

Knit Cos// Skirt Designers Remix// Boots Acne // Bag Céline

 There is something about spring and skirts. It is just a bit more weather appropriate to wear them when the first signs of spring show (at least when we talk about the thin and flowy ones). This ruffled skirt, which I bought back in January (when it was still cold and miserable), has finally seen the daylight. As the ruffle trend is still going strong I know this is going to be a stable piece of mine this season.

WINTER SKINCARE ESSENTIALS

Hand Balm Aesop// Night Oil Origins// Lip Balm Nuxe// Facial Mist Tromborg// Face Cream Embryolisse

These are some of my winter skincare essentials and some of them I really can’t live without. Especially the lip balm from Nuxe is a life changer. It rehydrates even the most dry and chapped lips and is a real life saver during the wintertime.

The Embryolisse face cream has been a staple of mine since I bought my first tube of it on my first trip to Paris back in 2012. It is great for all skin types and goes well under makeup.

The night oil from Origins is a new favorite of mine, but has definitely come to stay! It gives my face life and has really helped clearing it up.

When it comes to hands I have really been loving the Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm lately. It just does wonders. Nothing more to say about that.

Last but not least I love to use the rose water facial mist from Tromborg. It calms the skin as well as hydrating it and I love to use it throughout the day as a quick ‘pick-me-up’.
