LET THERE BE LIGHT

I just received the most beautiful candle holder by my beloved friend, who is by the way a great interior designer. How would my apartment look without his best advices and discounts? Bringing a breeze of Christmas ambiance before I am leaving for home. Very first next years investment: a new couch table: TOM & LACK don´t really work out together!

ALL ABOUT GALENICS

When it comes to skincare its all about textures and sensority. Mostly surrounded by western beauty brands and innovations it's worth to have a glance to Asia, where ultimate beauty is embodied by a perfect skin and where initially most of the beauty trends are created.

SAVAGE LOVE


This weekend I went to see "Savages" in an almost empty studio, the crowd storming into the latest Bond movie. Mexican drug cartel, cool-idyllic L.A. setting (Laguna Beach), dazzling all-star cast. Blake Lively turned into a modern beach-hippie girl. Back to reality: while we cant hide that winter is almost here, the shots tempt to dream of living somewhere on the beachside...
Apropos - and I totally fell in love with the iconic surf spray by Bumble & Bumble, a saltwater-based styling spray giving your hair texture, volume and that cool wind-styled feeling. And the best thing about it is: its available in Vienna, exclusively at Hair-Wolf.

SEE AGAIN BY...

Discovered the luxury of online-shopping, since my life started far beyond opening hours. My highlight of the week: Message saying "There´s a package for you from UK".  I know real satisfaction comes from within, but I can´t await to carry out my new twirl handbag...

PUKKA TIME

My new vintage pot and me have a new love: Pukka Tea. Ayurveda inspired organic herbs made to finest products for a healthy living following ethnic values and a sustainable concept proven by organic and fair-traded certificates. The creators of the Pukka world are two ambitious British guys, who are the modern authentic embodiment of their philosophy, raising Ayurveda onto a lifestyle level.

Discover the philosophy and whole range on pukkaherbs.com.



Personally I like the appealing packaging of their teas and natural, delicious taste with a feel-good effect. As the winner at London´s prestigious Great Taste Award, Pukka Herbs convinced their consumers and could also built up a great reputation as a sucecssful brand in the industry.
Currently my favorite blend is "harmonise", relaxing pleasure every morning and after my yoga classes...



Available in Austria in selective health stores, including:
Die Kräuterdrogerie - Kochgasse 34, 1080 Wien
YogaKula Studio - Bösendorferstrasse 9, 1010 Wien

HOMME SPORT

Every spring seasons its the time for new fragrance sport editions. Including the french global player working hard on trying to embody their image of man.

Just released the new Dior Homme Sport Commercial featuring once again Jude Law. For me it seems to be more a last minute production, playing with french lifestyle clichè, classical unexciting, the soundtrack a total misfit in my ears. Sorry, I didn´t get it. Anyway advertising is simply, it works or doesn´t.

Like or loath?



Par contraste, the Chanel´s latest edition of Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême. Stunning.

FASHION SPRING

Finally we have Spring back and full Summer collections in stores. Reason enough to celebrate this new fashion season charmed by soft pastel nuances, chic vintage flavors and bright color moods.

United Nude, the architectural footwear brand, invited to an exclusive shopping evening at there boutique, to view and try on their newcomer designs bearing names related to their inspiration. Check out 'The Web', 'Geisha' and Crazy Lazy' etc. on unitednude.com.
And I found my must-have sandals for the season. Flat, perfect to shorts and long dresses. My wardrobe shrank last year, after three cleanings-out only the best of the best passed. A casting show for my clothes, you´re in and you´r out.  My classic white blouse is out, which I really missed this week for some reasons. Me and a white blouse? Its like Eva and Ryan.
Back to my sandals, which I did not dare to try them on, my tight budget (do I even have a budget?) prevented me. Its sometimes good to be a rationalist. And currently my life is a casting show.


Further summer inspirations presented at Mühlbauer´s fashion show yesterday. The best high-end fashion & hats in town.
