DIOR ADDICT Lip Maximizer – 002 Collagen Activ

DIOR ADDICT Gloss – 643 Diaboltine

my visit in vienna was enlightened by the visit of dior’s santa claus, who dropped off some amazing sweets for the upcoming spring months. those are two of them, aren’t they super cute??


some things are just ment to be. like booking a flight to vienna and a few days after receiving the invite to kiehl’s bb cream launch. as you know i am a HUGE kiehl’s fan and the fact that they released a beauty product that i use every day, has really made me happy. i have used the cream for about 10 days now and apart from the fact, that even the lightest shade is a little too bright (i hope they’re releasing darker shades in italy!) i really love it. here’s the things that make this bb cream really the best for me:

1. the SUPER high SPF of 50/PA +++ (did you know a high sun protection in your sin care / make up is the #1 protection for wrinkles?)
2. it’s frangrance-, paraben- and mineral oil-free and non comedogenic, which means it doesn’t clog pores (the texture is really smooth and lets the skin breathe)
3. it gives my skin a really nice glow

this is def one of my beauty highlights of 2013 and also the price of 29€ is going to make me buy it as soon as this one’s gone, which is going to be soon i guess!


the other week my class mate, photographer andrea mancilla, shot some beauty photos of me for a publication in mexico city. i feel like mexico city’s next telenovela star! what a different look from how i normally dress. feeling like a real girl.


i am pretty much totally exaggerating concerning this hair issue. yesterday i asked you on my instagram and facebook what you prefer: long or short hair. i really like my short hair as it is really convenient to wear open and style. on the other hand i really miss putting up my hair in a bun or having messy, long beach hair.

apart from the ombre look, this is how my hair has been looking for a while now, after i cut it (myself!) earlier last year:

… and here how i had my hair for a reeeeally long time:

the bf really likes my long hair, just from seeing it on photos. also i kind of miss that simple, sleek look. i think i have made my decision: back to long. maybe not as long and still a fresh, middle length, but definitely not as short again.

Ieri ho chiesto su instagram e facebook  se preferite i capelli corti o lunghi. ho deciso di far crescere i capelli di nuovo, forse non molto lungo, ma almeno più di adesso!


after i have been obsessing over alexa chung’s hair for almost a year now, i have finally had the guts to try an ombre diy. as you know i barely ever go to the hairdresser because i just always pay loads of money for unsatisfying results. so i started to cut my hair at home, last time the boyfriend cut it and now i finally colored it at home.

there are so many good products but i was really unlucky to be in italy, where there’s only a very small selection of products that make your hair brighter (most people here are naturally brunette, so the market for bleach isn’t as big). so the only thing i found was schwarzkopf nordic blonde highlight set. here’s the video i promised and the steps below! hope you like it!

1. read the instructions of the product carefully (some have to be applied on wet, some on dry hair)
2. apply bleach to the very ends of your hair, wrap it in aluminum foil
3. wait (the time for your hair color is indicated in the instructions) but make sure to check on your hair every once in a while, it mostly takes a lot shorter!
4. wash out the color
5. repeat step 2 with covering more hair in color, this way the ends will be a little hair and the color will gradually blend in nicely
6. wait again for a while, still checking on the progress
7. rinse out and wash your hair

some tipps: it’s better to bleach your hair on the second or third day after washing. this way the hair will absorb the color a lot better. also make sure to use good products, since bleach is pretty aggressive on your hair. a serum or anything silkening will do it’s job to keep your hair soft and shiney!

And here some of my inspiration:
