Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been travelling quite a lot. I used to love airplanes more in the past, but the more I travel now, the more I feel like a flight attendant who hops on and off airplanes, although being a stewardess is not my current job.

Sure, I do feel lucky to get so many travel opportunities. However, after travelling to Italy, London and 3 times to France already this year, I felt my body asking me to slow down and I suggested to a friend of mine to visit a quiet place that doesn’t involve airports or airplanes and spend a relaxing girly weekend in the nature. This is how, more or less, we ended up in Salzburg, Austria.

When Vichy offered me to check out their facecream Slow Age cream, I didn’t say no. I wasn’t really curious to check out the quality of this daycream, for which there is no doubt, as I have been using Vichy skin care products for ages, but in this case, there is a special concept behind this product which consists of slowing down, taking care of yourself, and living peacefully, so that your skin keeps its natural glow.. A concept that matches 100% with my emotional status at this period of time.

Now, from a personal point of view, I never faced any major skin problem or I am scared of my skin aging because I know that if I take care of myself, skin stays young for a long time. What I totally dislike are dry hands, lips, and skin, which among others, cause skin to age. Every time I am traveling my skin is exposed to different environmental conditions, and I make sure not to forget my lip balm, hand and day creams at home. It is something that has happened in the past, and I still remember the unpleasant feeling that it caused. The funniest thing of all, is that I often buy moisturising products for friends who have dry skin and I don’t stop telling them that they should use them.

Regarding the Slow Age cream, I noticed that my skin absorbed it immediately, without leaving a white residue or greasy finish, which is already a sign that this cream and my skin can get along well together. Right after applying the cream, I could move on with my daily morning routine (foundation and concealer). However, for this weekend in Salzburg, the Slow Age cream was enough. As I mentioned before, it was a relaxing weekend, therefore I limited the use of skin care products to the basics.

If you want to take anything from this blog post, keep in mind that there is no magical cream that will do magic on your skin. Take care of yourself and your health, slow down, use a high quality skin product and you will see your skin shine every morning ♥

In collaboration with Vichy

My favorite mornings are definitely not the ones having me jump from bed and 10 minutes later running to catch the next bus (actually happens). My favorite mornings are the ones where I have the privilege to sleep a little bit longer and lie on bed stress free, have shower, enjoy breakfast and kick off the day with a little beauty program in order to feel good with myself for the day.

In this blog post, I wanted to create a visual story about those favorite mornings where I indulge in a morning beauty routine before stepping out of home. While taking those photos, I was thinking that I have been using Vichy products since my days in high school and they have been my loyal friends throughout the past years. It was so fun taking those photos because I love product photography and I intentionally made the photos bright, so they reflect the cleanness and freshness that Vichy products bring to the skin, AND they match perfectly to our bathroom. Bonjour Vichy. ♥

What is in my beauty case?

What is in my beauty case?

What is in my beauty case? – I received one email and I was asked about the make up products I use and I thought I should write about it. Well, I don’t like make up that much, I’d rather say I avoid it most of the times, especially when I have to wake up early, I don’t feel like putting a lot of make up on my face. And I believe in natural beauty…!

Nevertheless, I will tell you about some products I use:

As a day cream, I use the “Make a difference plus +” from Origins, every day after I clean my face. Breakfast and day cream go together. This cream keeps my skin soft and hydrated. I first bought this product in Manhattan and fortunately I can find it in Vienna as well.

I am quite pale, so I believe I need a little bit of color on my cheeks. For that purpose, I use the Crème de blush No 2 from Yves Saint Laurent.

Fortunately not all beauty products are expensive. My favorite Volum’ Express Mascara from Maybelline is friendly to our wallets.

And now I am going to reveal my favorite lipsticks….
The No 97 Incandescente from Chanel…so sexy, hot red, french and classy! And the “Im-Passioned” from MAC cosmetics. I love them both. Two more lipsticks that I like are from Yves Saint Laurent: Rouge Volupte No 13 and No 11.

This products fit my colors and skin perfectly, and that doesn’t mean they fit you as well. Try them before you buy them.

Thank you for asking and never forget that happy girls are the prettiest girls and that all you need is a spontaneous smile!♥
