after showing you here what beauty products i like to use, i now thought of showing you how i like to organize it. moving to italy has been crazy because i really am not the best at organizing. i’ve been craving the muji acrylic cases since seeing it on vicky’s blog. they incarnate THE perfect storage tool for me. there’s so many different sizes and shapes, i could go crazy in their stores. well how lucky am i, that there’s a muji store in milano?


coming back from milan last night i found a wonderful surprise. the amazingreen fragrance by comme des garçons parfums was waiting for me in the most wonderful packaging i’ve ever seen. the scent of the perfume is so fresh, wonderful and i am really in love with the whole idea creating a “green” fragrance. for the launch of the fragrance they came up with a genius idea: an instagram contest. all you have to do is take a photo using instagram that illustrates your interpretation of AMAZINGREEN and upload it with the #amazingreen hashtag. the top 10 posts will receive a fragrance! the contest ends september 28th, so go go go and take some snaps! here’s what i uploaded:


what makes a girls heart jump? cupcakes and loads of beauty products! the other day clinique invited to a super girlie cupcake press lunch at cupcakes vienna. i have been using clinique for a while now and it was the perfect chance to get to know the people behind the brand. linda, the head of pr, showed us all the new products for the fall and then sent us off to a cupcake baking session. my cupcakes looked like poop but they tasted delicious!

anyway, my highlights will be the even better eyes dark circle corrector and the age defense bb cream. i have tested both and i am absolutely stunned by the results. i love the fact that they launched a bb cream with SPF 30! it makes the perfect make-up base. but more about all that in my make-up tutorial that will follow soon here…


still impressed by dior’s golden jungle collection they now managed to impress me even more. a new nude collection that blows my mind. i am a big fan of “less is more” when it comes to make-up. the fluid make-up contains of mostly water and gives your skin a really healthy feel. the compact powder comes with a sponge and with a brush, that make it so perfect to work with. the entire collection just amazes me with the incredible natural glow it gives. also i really love the nude nail polish, i’ve been looking for one like it in a long time since i ALWAYS wear nail polish, but have never found a lighter one that still covers well. making the nude look perfect: a silky soft hint of color on the lips…


the other day lucky me got to visit the kiehl’s HQ in vienna. kiehl’s has always been one of the “good brands” to me. clean, simple and effective. getting to know the people behind kiehl’s definitely confirmed that picture.

the company was founded 1851 in new york and started out with very specific products for individual problems. until now kiehl’s still uses a lot of natural ingredients like oils or plants. but what i love most about the brand is how they treat their customers. they always work with samples, they believe in having the customer test their products before having to buy them. also they have a reward system for empty bottles brought back to the store. they recycle the bottles and make awesome tote bages out of it! also they started having baby products which is pretty cool considering that some of my next baby shower products are definitely gonna be bought there!

after getting a detailed consultation, i got to take home the rare earth deep pore cleansing masque and daily cleanser, both part of the rare earth line that is formulated with amazonian white clay, that draws out oil and dirt and clogs out pores. also i got to take two pieces from the ultra facial oil-free line, that are good for my skin which is pretty oily and tends to blemish. the ultra facial oil-free toner and lotion are the perfect companions for my next travels. both make my skin look really fresh and healthy.

kiehl’s reduced their prices a few months ago and i can highly recommend trying out their stuff, one of the few brands where price and performance really work.
