Park Hyatt | The Maldives at it’s best

14. Juli 2017

ENG: Almost several months ago, we were allowed to stay a few days on the Maldives, where my boyfriend and me celebrated our engagement. Today I would like to introduce a small hotel post with a corresponding video from this time because this resort is the true paradise.

When you are looking for a luxury resort between the more than 1,000 islands of the Maldives, then you have to visit the Park Hyatt resort on the small island Hadahaa at the Gaafu Alif atoll. The island is just 55 kilometers away from the equator and a true piece of jewelry, the Park Hyatt has 50 villas with a maximum of privacy and a luxury ambience. There are 36 villas with an own entrance to the beach as well as 14 overwater villas with an amazing view on the ocean and a phenomenal sunset. All of them offer the amenities for an incredible stay, especially the open air showers are kind of a real SPA indulgence.
The special feature of the resort is its jungle character being likewise the center and starting point of the Park Hyatt conception. The palms form the inner circle, whereas the beach villas characterize the outer area. Even the service and hospitality are remarkable, due to the small size of the island there results a very pleasant and almost familiar flair. To be honest the island’s activities are limited, it is much more about the experiences on and underwater and of course we had to get an own idea of it: During the guided house reef tour we could spot a swarm of small sharks, the whole underwater world of the Park Hyatt is breathtaking and very impressive. In addition to that we got a very pleasant massage in the beautiful SPA area being divided into several small sections and an own pool for the perfect recreation and relaxation in paradise. Even with regard to dishes and drinks, the hotel leaves nothing to be desired, not only the breakfast and à la carte restaurant open the heart to intense emotions but also the regular BBQ evenings at the beach with regional and international specialities guarantee unforgettable and fantastic moments.
We were allowed to stay four nights on the island and we had really a great time. In the following you can find some pictures as well as a short video for getting a better impression of our great time at the Park Hyatt.

ENG: Back in Hamburg I still gladly look back on the nice time at the Berlin Fashion Week. Especially the get-together with friends and well-known faces is always fun, so we were very enthusiastic in regards of the group exhibition of the „Berliner Mode Salon“, a platform for the support of renowned as well as young German fashion designer. For me this event is kind of a must-have in my schedule based on the great atmosphere, the inspirational fashion and open-minded people.
We started the day with a lot of rain but in the afternoon we had the perfect weather conditions with sunshine and temperatures around 30 degrees. Enjoyment was the main topic this day, even Nespresso as first-time supporter of the „Berliner Mode Salon“ launched its new Limited Edition „Iced Coffee“ creations in two different flavors. Together with my beloved Lisa Hahnbueck and Dennis from „Dennmitch“ we were allowed to test these new types of coffee and it was really an enjoyment to the fullest.
On the one hand it is the INTENSO ON ICE, a rather strong coffee with grain and cocoa notes for an intensiv taste experience. Prepared as Latte Macchiato, this flavor is a very recommendable alternative for the real coffee pleasure. On the other hand there is the limited LEGGERO ON ICE, a mild and fruity coffee. Prepared as black ice coffee, this one is characterized by its refreshing citrus notes. Nespresso developed this coffee for the iced enjoyment on warm summer days, my flavorful preferred sort is the „Intense on Ice“, nevertheless both variations guarantee a delicious and succeeded refreshment.

Hereinafter you can see some impressions from this great event. Have fun! :-)

ENG: We have been in Berlin during the last days because it was Fashion Week time. Based on the fact, that I am currently staying in Bremen at my parents‘ house on their sun terrace in order to escape from the terrible incidents in our beloved Hamburg, I would like to publish a small review of my looks from this year’s Berlin Fashion Week.
For sure Berlin can offer some great fashion shows and designer but for me it is even more importantly to join the „side events“, where you can find true interaction and conversations between brands, PR responsibilities and other blogger as the actual added value of such a Fashion Week. This time I have decided for a wide range of looks from a chic dress for the exclusive Mercedes Benz dinner at the Soho House to the casual hoodie-jeans combination at other events.
Which look is your favorite one? I would be very glad to hear your feedback and wish all of you a relaxed Sunday with hopefully a lot of sunshine.

ENG: A very eventful week is over and today I would like to use the „weekly focus“ to look back on these exciting days. Everything started with a flight to London, where we were hosted by Net-A-Porter to the Summer Sports Day at the idyllic Soho Farmhouse. For me it was definitely one of the best events in the recent past based on the perfect organization as well as the positive energy of all contact persons and participants that day. We had so much fun, therefore I will publish a separate post this week with more detailed information about the day’s procedure, my physical activities as well as my outfits that day.
From London I took a direct flight to Greece in order to join a girls trip hosted by the Hell&Karrer PR agency. We were allowed to sleep in the beautiful Sani Dunes 6 stars hotel as the perfect place for peace, comfort and a relaxed atmosphere. As brand partner Dior Make-Up, Juvia, Lancaster and Seafolly were on the spot, in addition to that Laura and me took over the Instyle Germany Instagram account last Friday, where we shared our looks and hotel impressions. Have you recognized the take over? Did you like our picture selection?

Favorites of the week

To Do: At the moment we are staying in Berlin for participating in shows and events of this year’s Fashion Week. In collaboration with CATRICE we are sleeping in the amazing Hotel de Rome in close connection to the State Opera, it is the perfect retreat of an exciting program during the next days with fashion, lifestyle and beauty related events. As you know me, I will share the majority of my impressions via Instagram and co. with you. Since a few years I am a regular participant of the Berlin Fashion Week, that is honestly not as glamorous and pompous as those in Paris or New York but it allows continually the get-together of well-known faces within the fashion industry as well as the exciting interaction with other blogger and brands. In the end of this week I would also like to share a small review of my personal insights, impressions and outfits here in and from Berlin.

Your favorite post of the week:  weekly focus 25 | 17

New In: In London my shopping heart is exploded because I could finally get the last pair of the Dior „J‘ ADIOR“ Slingback heels, that were on my wish list for some time. In addition to that I could not resist to buy the new, dark blue MIU MIU fur slides with studs based on their high comfort and the stylish combining opportunities. From Net-A-Porter I have received this fabulous statement sunglasses from Chloé, a black colored Prada beach bag and this cute, mint green maxi dress. Last but not least I was very happy about the surprise package from Topshop in terms of a girlfriend jeans and this casual, rose colored in-between coat.

ENG: Back from Ibiza, we are already in London and looking forward to having some nice days in this breathtaking city. Nevertheless I would like to emphasize to what extent we felt in love with this small Balearic Island and for this reason there will follow an own post about our time, special moments and recommendations. There are lots of relaxing bays, domestic restaurants and trendy hippie markets, that have to be shared and we would like to do so in our own manner soon. :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: As I have already mentioned above, we are currently staying in London in order to spend our time from tomorrow on with Net-A-Porter at the lovely Soho Farmhouse. It will be an athletic and very international day, therefore we are already looking forward to having two exciting and thrilling days. From Thursday morning on, I will take a flight to Greece for being part of the launch of the new Sani Dunes Resort (6 stars hotel) in the context of a press trip with some other influencer. Of course I am looking forward to the amazing hotel, other girls and brands as well as the summery feeling on the Greek islands. Wherever I will find myself during the next days, I will take you with me via Instagram.

Your favorite post of the weekIBIZa city look | Gucci Marmont Bag

New In: Even if the speculation, that I have been very active concerning my shopping activities on Ibiza, I have to disappoint you. Just a statement shirt from Mango is now my own, in addition to that I have already told you via Instagram from the new „Kenzo World“ summer fragrance being available since the 1st June this year. I am totally keen on the freshness and easiness of the perfume, the pleasant touch of peonies and jasmine is very beneficial and especially with regard to the summer a grateful refreshment. Have you already seen the amazing campaign video on Youtube? The video has more than 6 million views and is more than worth seeing, however I can really recommend it.

Have a lovely week!

feel good | Elasten

miu_miu_slides_blogger

ENG: „Beauty to drink“, with this slogan ELASTEN is promoting the own collagen drinking ampoules. Even several months ago, I got the request to test this miracle weapon and of course I did not hesitate one second to confirm for getting an own idea, if the regular intake of the drinking ampoules would lead to a tighter skin.
As pre information it should be mentioned, that human bodies are loosing their physical efficiency slowly but regularly from 25 years on. For sure there are differences from human to human concerning the aging process, even though I am 27 and I would not like to make me older, than my true age, I am recognizing more and more small laugh lines, dry skin areas as well as my frown line being more visible by now, appears to be very comfortable on my skin. The request had the perfect timing, so since already four months I am drinking every morning a small ampoule and I can definitely confirm, that my complexion is much better, than in the past. What is so special about ELASTEN?
The drinking ampoules consist of a combination of specific collagen peptides, the acerol fruit extract, vitamins and zink. Collagen itself gives the skin more structure and stability, vitamin C in turn contributes to the normal collagen formation in the deeper skin layer. Biotin and zinc preserve the healthy skin appearance. Thus the collagen peptides in ELASTEN support an attractive and younger outward appearance of the skin, what I can definitely confirm with a clear conscience. A few weeks ago, a reader asked me via Instagram-Direct, that my skin would seem to be well-proportioned and healthier, even if I had not referred to ELASTEN. Collagen is part in many cremes and masks but the liquid variation in terms of the drinking ampoules, being available in common pharmacies, is absolutely recommendable.

Enjoy your public holidays!

ENG: Now we are almost one week back from L.A. and I still think about the nice time almost every day and miss the continuous pleasant weather, the sun and ocean as well as the positive attitude of the Californian people. We felt very comfortable in Beverly Hills at the Rodeo Drive, where we spent a lot of our time and even shot today’s look being one of my personal favorites during the three weeks in L.A.
I am wearing an easy summer dress from a collection of the last year but I am still so in love with it during the warmer months, therefore it still belongs to my preferred dresses this season. I have combined the dress with especially red colored accessories, in detail it is about the Miu Miu sandals, my beloved Dolce & Gabbana bag as well as a Fendi scarf being converted to a hairband.

What do you think about this look? Within my „L.A. focus“ this week, I have not only introduced the most popular Instagram outfits but also published my first „Follow Me Around“ movie on YouTube for giving you more personal insights from our experiences. Take a look inside and leave your feedback.

I wish all of you a sunny and relaxed Sunday!

Los Angeles focus 18 | 17

ENG: We are back from Los Angeles and have spent the first nights in our flat. I love to travel, discovering new places, being on the move but also to come home after every trip. L.A. is definitely an impressive and multifaceted city, whose contrast between wealth and poverty is huge in many places, so there will remain memories with mixed feelings for me. Within my last „weekly focus“ I have already told about my favored places in this city, therefore we just had to drive to Santa Monica once again during the last week for enjoying the sun and ocean. In addition to that we have visited the Universal Studios due to my last weeks‘ birthday and it was really excited to get behind the scenes impressions from big Hollywood productions and to discover the Harry Potter attractions. ;-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: After a longer time of traveling there are tasks and obligations, that were left behind and have to be dealt with during the next days. Nevertheless there are already some new, promising events and projects, to which I will tell you more about pretty soon. :-)

Your favorite post of the week: Girls Day in LA | Melrose Avenue

New In: Oh well, I felt totally in love with the latest adidas Originals collection, so that I had to buy this shirt in rose and baby blue in Los Angeles. In this context I have also ordered the appropriate adidas hoodies in the same color (rose & blue), you know my preference for oversized hoodies in any variation. Even in L.A. I fell victim to this passion and have ordered the red and pastel-colored hoodie from the brand Champion based on a much cheaper price, than in Germany. Last but not least I could also find suited Gucci sneaker after a long search at the Heathrow airport in London and even here I could save more than 200€ towards the price in Germany for the same model. All in all I am very happy with my new achievements.

I have tried to capture our time in Los Angeles in small film sequences and have already „produced“ a video for getting a personal impression of our experiences and feelings. Take a look inside and leave your honest feedback about positive, negative or even missing things, you would connect with such a film.

Have a lovely week!

Girls Day in LA | Melrose Avenue

5. Mai 2017

ENG: Maybe you have already recognized, that I am a birthday girl this week and that I was allowed to spend my great day in Los Angeles with friends. I could start the day in the early morning with a laid birthday table and a good mood, at lunchtime we stopped at Gracias Madre and combined it with a relaxed coffee break at Alfred Coffee Melrose Avenue. The culmination this day was a delicious dinner at the Mama Shelter Hotel, on whose rooftop we could let a wonderful day come to the end with refreshing drinks and a beautiful L.A. panorama view.
At this special day Laura and me decided for a beauty look in collaboration with Catrice Cosmetics. Laura made a decision for soft Rosé tones and a special accentuation of the eye area, whereas I highlighted my look with a conspicuous lipstick color. Hereinafter I would like to introduce my approach concerning the product usage.

My Make-Up Step by Step

I started with the new Prime and Fine Nude Glow Primer, that takes care for a perfect priming and a nice face glow. After that I chose the Liquid Camouflage Concealer for the elimination of eye contours, the Liquid Luminizer Strobing Pen in turn could ensure highlights on the cheekbones, under the brow bones, on my nasal bridge as well as at my chin. One of my preferred products is the classical eyebrows pen based on my preference for the accentuation of eyebrows in general, this time I could also fix them with the Eyebrow Filler. With regard to my birthday I even decided for a glossy eyeshadow shade from the Copper Eyeshadow palette, that I am using regularly in the meantime. For creating a rather natural look, I decided furthermore for the Multi Matt Blush 010, the lower eyelashes are the result of the Lash Dresser Comb Mascara. Last but not least and as indicated above, I made a decision for a strong lipstick in terms of my favored color Pinker Bell in order to get the perfect L.A. make-up from my perspective.

What do you think about this make-up look? You can find more information about Laura on her blog.
