hair // beach waves

March 16, 2014
There is no better way to style your hair than wearing natural looking beach waves. Girls like me whose hair is flat and straight if we do not use a flat iron or a hair curler, we long for these waves and would give a lot to get them. But I guess that is mostly caused by the always-wanting-exactly-the-opposite-of-what-we-have phenomenon, because I know enough girls with the most beautiful curls who get up extra early to straighten out every single wave! Anyway, I have tried everything from simple curlers to heat rollers to a normal hair curler and I have come to the conclusion that the best and simplest way to receive dream waves is the flat iron version! I know, it is not exactly the healthiest method for your hair, but I only use the flat iron on special occasions, so it should not do too much damage – plus, I always use heat protection spray! 🙂 This tutorial helped me a lot, it needs some exercise, but the result is amazing!

my top 5 // spring nail colors

February 23, 2014

Strictly speaking we are still caught in the middle of winter, but the spring-like temperatures outside as well as the sprouting flowers, the tweeting birds and the sun are already sending a thrill of anticipation through my body! So I thought I might as well start to get ready for the real spring and show you some of my favorite nail polishes for this time of the year:

1) Essie | blanc – White is always a good idea, especially when it comes to spring nails, because it looks so luxurious combined with fresh pastel shades and light blouses!

2) Ciaté | ferris wheel – Light blue for light spring days (and nights).

3) Sally Hansen | arm candy – An all-time favorite of mine, very classic and perfect for a spring-like mani.

4) Essie | full steam ahead – There is no other season but spring in which I like to paint my nails in lilac (just like a hyacinth) – so this is a typical spring color for me!

5) Kiko | 358 – For everyone who likes it a little more colorful, here comes my favorite orange shade from Kiko – makes you yearn for summer!

notd // essie – blanc

February 2, 2014

Apposite to the snow outside (thats actually about to melt right now due to the increasing temperatures) I chose essie’s beautiful ‘blanc‘ a few days ago. It is my very first white nail polish and I have to admit I was a bit sceptical about this shade on my nails.. But I have seen so many pictures on instagram lately and really grew to love the look of it! I truly adore the result though I think it might look even better in summer with tanned skin and some neon accessories, don’t you think?
