You spend hours in your bed, so why not make it the best place on earth? A tranquil place made to make you relax and dream sweet dreams. Your bedding plays a role in this and that’s why I have lately had my eyes on Tekla. Tekla linen is hypoallergenic which is important when you, like me, is allergic to dust. It’s moisture wicking and adjustable to body temperature, ensuring coolness during summer and warmth during winter. My obsession of white makes it hard to choose between ‘Broken White’, ‘New White’ and ‘Cream White’ and the ‘Sand Grey’ shade would also fit my new pale yellow ceiling perfect. Decisions, decisions… Find your favourite colour here.
Six beauty products that just landed on my desk – just in time for spring that will hopefully arrive with May.
Marie Stella Maris lip balm made with coconut oil, beeswax and almond oil for soft, hydrated lips. All in one face & eye cream from Xellence and a seductive scent from RPL Parfums. Dr. Hauschka recently launched a new makeup line including this volume mascara in aubergine. Lastly Evanesce’s organic coconut oil to achieve super soft skin ready for shorts.
Next time you go to Paris – make sure you stop by Atelier Brancusi. In his will Constantin Brancusi left his entire workshop to the French state and it is now reconstructed on the piazza of the Centre Pompidou. It features a unique collection of more than 130 sculptures and is utterly beautiful.
Æther is a new fragrance brand seeking an intelligent and modern interpretation of fragrance. It’s a tribute to synthetic molecules and introduces new molecular compositions. A collection of hypnotic fragrances that will challenge your senses. There is no way to describe the whimsical scent of Ether Oxyde ( which references to the addictive anaesthetic ether) – you need to go experience each of the Æther fragrances on your own skin.
I had an amazing trip to Paris – and even more joy – I brought home these lovely ones. Bring on spring please. It’s the bold blue and white stripes that mark these espadrilles a part of Balenciaga’s Bazar line – a collection inspired by traditional Sampeng market bags. Crafted from synthetic raffia and vinyl rope, with a square toe – a twist on the classic espadrille design. I’m ready for an exotic holiday – good thing I’m leaving for a few days in sunny Spain in a few weeks.
After a long week I took the day off and treated myself with and hour and a half of pure pleasure at DollFace. These ladies keep my brows in place, but today it was all about the Ling Signature Facial. A facial that has been on everyones lips. Time to spring clean my face.
First cleansing, then a skin analysis, a triple peel, a lot of steam, a deep cleanse followed by hydrator, face massage, two masks – first Oxygen & Multivitamin nourishment for dry and dehydrated skin to replenish, hydrate and fortify skin. Then Ginseng Therapy Moisture Mask formulated with Aloe Vera to soothe, Collagen to firm and Ginseng to tone. Last jade roller massage and Re-lite Eyegel that relieves puffiness and diminish the appearance of dark circles around the eye area. I left with visibly better skin – ultra clean and very hydrated. I rarely recommend facials as we all have different preferences, but this treatment will without a doubt be appreciated by everyone. So if you want to give your skin a treat – this is it.
Tomorrow I’m off to Paris for the weekend – croissant & vin blanc coming up. The picture is from my last trip there – make sure you keep up on Instagram here.
This treatment is one of Dr. Murad’s most sought after formulas – and I can see why. It infuses the delicate eye area with an exclusive surface-filling and firming technology that instantly lifts, firms and tightens to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The use of eye pads helps boost the penetration of the ingredients. I use this and follow with Ling’s ‘Gift of Lift’ (read more here) and then carry on with my normal skin care routine. The result is visibly younger looking skin in less the 30 minutes. My favourite quick fix at the moment.
