Tuesday's Beauty Post: Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover

A dear friend gave me this Sephora Nail Polish Remover and I'm so thankful that I got introduced to it! This product is beyond amazing: It is formulated without acetone or parabens and it works so good. You just have to dip your fingers into the foam for a few seconds and everything's off your nails - even long wearing nail polish traces.

This is serious magic in a bottle!

Lac Léman

As MiJi mentioned in her previous post we had the pleasure of visiting Geneva a couple of days ago. We rarely get the chance to spend an entire day together and therefore thoroughly enjoyed our day trip. After an interesting and lovely meeting we had a couple of hours left to explore the city, and as can be explected we hit some shops we don't have in the German speaking part of Switzerland.

These pictures were taken near the lake of Geneva which was even beautiful and calm on this cold day...

Thursday's Beauty Post: Les Roses et le Noir de Guerlain

Probably just like every other girl I'm drawn to beautiful packaging. With Guerlain, you know that you won't only get collector-worthy design but also quality products that deliver. That's why I was more than excited to receive* the spring 2012 collection, which hit stores in Zurich last week.

Météorites Cruel Gardénia - Illuminating iridescent powder limited edition

I'm not a fan of glitter on my face but I love subtle shimmer that has been strategically placed to highlight the face. This beautiful highlighting powder is almost too pretty to ruin the rosette but I have been using it for weeks just above my cheekbones, sometimes also down the center of my nose or my cupids bow and love the iridescent, cool-toned shimmer.

Ecrin 4 couleurs in 11 Les Roses - Long-lasting eyeshadows

The spring 2012 line offers two two eyeshadow palettes with 4 colors each and one with 6 colors. I received the one with the pink tones in different finishes: there is an iridescent frosted pink, an intense pink with a matte effect, a raspberry pink with a velvety finish and a metallic violet. I'm not used to wearing pinks on my eyelids but I'm very fond of the ALCATAR'EYES violet so far...

Noir G de Guerlain mascara - exceptional complete mascara

One of the products that has been created for this spring line is the Noir G mascara with its integrated mirror for perfect, meticulous application. Even though I never apply my mascara outside of my own bathroom (unlike lipstick for instance) I don't really need a mirror but what I love most about this new toy is the fact that it's refillable. Needless to say this is the most luxurious and extravagant mascara I own. I really like the application of the intense glossy black color that curls and lengthens my lashes beatifully but sadly doesn't give much volume in my opinion. The mascara smells unexpectedly nice. In fact the House of Guerlain has created a signature fragrance with delicate notes of flowery peach, rose and jasmine for Noir G, which really makes this mascara extraordinary...

Wednesday's Interior Decoration Inspiration: light and airy

As we all entered a new year and I personally also a new chapter in my life, one of my most urgent resolutions was to declutter the space around me. The first month of the year is almost over and I'm still not done with putting away stuff I don't need and want to see around me anymore, which mostly concerns my work place. This rather minimalistic flat inspires me to go for light and airy, keeping only things that are functional and pretty.

Don't strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt

Although it's only the last week of January, I'm already fed up with winter dressing. The printed top which peeks through is actually sleeveless with a cut-out at the back. Can't wait until it's time to unbutton the shirts and wear some more interesting looks.

Multiple layers

As none of my coats keep me really warm I often wear lots of layers like in this outfit. You can't see it from the photos but there's also a cardigan and an undershirt involved which unfortunately sometimes can add up and look a little too bulky. I hope this isn't the case here, though. I really like the sparkly top which adds some interest to this rather monochromatic outfit.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

New in

My first H&M nail polish! I can't believe that I've hesitated to buy it!
It's so good - the covering, color and the stability! I was looking for a dark red one for a long time and I was thinking about getting Chanel. I'm so glad that I gave the H&M nail polish a try first!

Black has so many different shades such as the one with the zipper detail that I got from Zara - it's neither black nor grey! The other one's from Tally Weijl and really deep black. It goes with everything and that's why I stick to them so much.

Have a fun friday night everyone!

Thursday's Beauty Post: Christian Dior Crème Abricot

Well-maintained nails are a must for me and as I do my manicures myself I'm always on the lookout for amazing products. I've heard such great things about this cuticle cream that I thought I'd splurge and give it a try. It's fast becoming a luxurious part of my nighttime ritual to pamper myself with... All the better that I can actually see results: the condition of my cuticles has never been better!

What's your favorite cuticle cream (if you use any)?

All bundled up

I know it's been ages since I posted an outfit of mine but the truth is, I was either totally out of inspiration or the weather was so miserable that I didn't want to step outside to have pictures taken. We didn't really have much snow so far but instead some pretty heavy wind storms...
Here's what I wore Saturday to run errands:

Beanie: handmade by my mom
Scarf: C&A

Rings: Rhomberg
Leather Gloves: H&M
Nail polish: Estée Lauder Blue Dahlia

Coat: Asos
Sweater: Zara
Trousers: H&M
Wedges: Tchibo
Bag: Liebeskind
