Bvlari is launching a new fragrance! This beautiful bottle as you can see in the picture called Rose Goldea.

"After the great success of Goldea, Bvlgari launches its successor Rose Goldea in July 2016. In Goldea, "goddess of gold", jewelry house Bulgari focused on the intoxicating sweetness of exotic ylang-ylang flowers mingling with elegant white flowers of jasmine and neroli, while the warmth comes from Goldea's creamy shades of musk. Bvlgari descibes goldea as: "An homage to gold and femininity inspired by the Goddess of gold, and the beauty of the Sun.
Rose Goldea The Essence of The Jeweler brings a new fragrant story wrapped in a scented mantle of roses. Rose Goldea is feminine and seductive, but its beauty is reflected in the softness of rose petals. Alberto Morillas signed this feminine composition focused on the tantalizing scent of pomegranate combined with aromas of rose and jasmine. Morillas is increasingly using pomegranate as a key note in fragrances such as Omnia Coral, also from the house of Bvlgari, a fragrance where the red fruit is blended with feminine water lotus flowers and hibiscus."

The perfect gain for fall/winter season: Coco Noir by Chanel! 
I had my eye on this beauty for a while and since I start a new stage of life (as a mom) in a few months I thought it would be the best excuse to buy the perfume. 
Feminine, strong, classy and chic is the best delineation if you ask me. Day or night, I don't care. Ok maybe now when it summer it can be more for the evening but when fall/winter it can be during the day time.

"Coco Noir is the embodiment of a black that reveals femininity. The contemporary expression of a magnetic sensuality told in a modern oriental fragrance with luminous notes. 

Striking top notes of Grapefruit and Bergamot accentuate the floral accord, with Rose and Jasmine, while Indonesian Patchouli and Sandalwood notes add warmth."

I already had the body lotion and shower gel in my bathroom and I still love it!
You can read an article I wrote with these included here
Spending way to much time in the bathroom these days.. ;)

I just love these art sticks from Bobbi Brown. The pigment, the substance, everything.
I like to choose these over a lipstick because it feels so comfortable on the lips.
Formulated with Shea Butter and emollients.
Easy to trow in the bag and it stay on the lips for ever. The only thing is you need to sharpen it so when you'r on holiday or something you need to bring a sharpener. But seriously that's the only dis advance I can think of.
The Dusty pink that I have reviewd here is a favorite that I wear on a daily basis. This brighter color will be worn ones in a while. Gorgeous when you wear all white.

 When I receive something from Chanel, my heart always makes a little beat. It simply makes a woman happy. The classic slick appearance but always oh, so feminine.
Today I review the "rouge coco stylo complete care lipshine sticks" There are eight different colors and I am showing you three. Roman, Récit and  Histoire. Gorgeous springy colors.
The products are not a new launch btw.

"For women who don’t want to choose between colour, shine and lip care, Chanel has created Rouge coco stylo. In one easy step, this lipstick pen accentuates a style and a personality to match every mood and colour."

They are very creamy and the pigment comes off quit strong. They feel so comfortable No dry lips! They don't stay on the lips very long so when you go out for dinner I would say switch to a different product. In my opinion it's really in between lipstick and lipgloss. The pigment of a lipstick but the stay of a gloss.
A must-have in your bag this summer!


Have you tried the complete care lipshine yet?
The available colors: 

202 Conte A fresh, tender and delicate pink.

204 Article A bright, luminous coral.

206 Histoire A fresh, vibrant and intense red.

208 Roman A lively, smoldering fuchsia pink.

212 Récit A deep purple.

214 Message A brownish rosewood.

216 Lettre A soft and subtle rosewood. 218 Script A discreet and natural nude.

When it comes to skin care, Sisley is definitely on of my favorite brands.
It's an high-end brand with botanical skincare and a family company.
Overall my skincare-stash starting to get dominated by Sisley slowly and I found a product that exists for a while but is new for me. Talkin' about the gentle make-up remover for face and eyes.
At night I am always tired and I want my make-up removed as quick as possible.
Of course it's a whole routine.. and it takes about 10 minutes... but better than half an our right?
So I choose my products wisely. It's so easy: Just put a cotton pad on top of the bottle and pump a few times. Then take the make-up off. It's very gentle. I use a different eye-make-up remover when I have a heavy look and after this I always use a facewash with water. I can't live without that.
I use a new product from Sisley for that process but I can tell you more about that later! Oh and it smells so good. Also an important factor for me. I love Sisley.

This Gentle Makeup Remover is a 3 in 1 product: it removes makeup from the face and eyes, cleanses, and tones skin. Formulated with plant-based saponins with strong cleansing powers, it removes impurities and traces of pollution accumulated over the course of the day, preserving skin's radiance. It effectively eliminates even the most stubborn makeup from the face and eyes. 

A combination of 2 naturally-derived active ingredients with soothing, softening, and relaxing properties (linden blossom water and neroli extract), create a pleasant sensation of well-being and freshness. 

Place a cotton pad against the pump, then press 2 to 3 times to soak the pad. Begin by wiping each eye with a separate cotton pad and then continue on to wipe the remainder of the face with another cotton pad. Reapply if necessary to remove makeup completely. Use in the morning to awaken and stimulate the skin. Use in the evening to effectively eliminate makeup from the face and eyes. Do not rinse.

Active ingredients:

Extracts of Shikakai, Desert Date, and Gypsophila: plant-based saponins with strong cleansing power
Linden Blossom Water: soothes and softens the epidermis
Neroli Extract: provides toning properties
Natural Alpha Bisabolol: soothes
Provitamin B5: promotes well-hydrated skin and soothes

Appropriate for those with sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses.

€81,- 300ml

A head full of curls takes a lot of care as u all know. Every day is a surprise how the coupe will show.
I love my curls of course and I only brush them in the shower when my hair is wet.
When I brush my hair when it's dry it will explode ;) 
I was curious about the tangle Teezer for a while but there was no special one for my type of hair. So when I received a letter in the mail if I was willing to try this new edition I was very excited!

About the product:
The Thick & Curly detangling hairbrush from Tangle Teezer is the best way to achieve tangle free hair for those with thick, curly and afro hair.

Who doesn't love head turning thick hair with masses of curls? But brushing can literally have you pulling your hair out with teeth getting stuck mid-way through stopping you perfecting the style you want. Thankfully, help is in the palm of your hand with the new Thick & Curly detangling hairbrush specifically designed for thick, curly and afro hair. Finally, this hair type is not too difficult for brushing - it's a liberating hair revolution!

The Thick & Curly detangling hairbrush from Tangle Teezer is perfect for those with thick, curly and afro hair. It takes all the brilliance of The Original Tangle Teezer brush - palm friendly design and flexible teeth that don't tug or pull on wet or dry hair - but with an added supersized detangling experience.

The answer to how to detangle thick, curly or afro hair with ease is here and it couldn't be simpler. The Thick & Curly Tangle Teezer detangling hairbrush is a super smooth operator that works perfectly on both dry and wet hair. The teeth are longer (an additional 4mm) and stronger than The Original with FIRMFLEX TECHNOLOGY that means teeth are firm but flexible so hair is detangled and brushed confidently with no pulling, tugging or tearing.

Some for me, some for the baby ;) How cute are these luxury products from Bvlgari?
I've seen them in store a few years a go so I was aware that Bvlgari offers these kind of products.
When they send me these two products I was very touched. Maybe mommy will use the products first but it will definitely be showed in the nursery. Her first luxury beauty products.
Did I already told you how happy I am getting a girl..? ;)

6 months pregnant now and still going strong! The first 5 months it was so easy and I almost didn't noticed I was pregnant when it comes to aliments. Shining all day. I feel her bouncing in my belly and that's very special. But now slowly.. my back hurts and that kind of stuff. But I am not complaining ;) Nursery is almost finished and I can't wait to meet our little daughter.

Alcohol-free fragrance, Petits et Maman which is classified as aromatic-floral, is the first fragrance created for children, to the greatest delight of mothers and mothers-to-be. To compose Petits et Mamans, Bulgari choses gentle ingredients in order not to harm children’s skin. Tea is the main ingredient in this fragrance. It is widely known for its calming and soothing properties, not only in perfumes, but also in the form of nice, hot cup of relaxing tea which soothes the rough edges of a tired mind and soul. The fresh, citrusy beginning is followed by the unusual floral heart composed of chamomile, sunflower and rose. Natural peach, vanilla and iris extracts make for a pure and tender childlike moment. It was created in 1997. The nose behind this fragrance is Nathalie Lorson.
