Color Themes - RED

Hi guys

today post is color themed. As you might know one of my all-time and most favorite color is RED.

So here are some cosmetic items and clothing pieces I wouldn´t like to miss again:
 
The best red nail polish is from Essie and it is called -----------. It is the perfect red for casual day time or night time or even for work. Can´t resist a good red color.


 

This knitted sweater is just great. It is from H&M and I love it. It is perfect for current Winter time and it was so nice for Christmas time. The wool Anteil is really gering so it feels really soft on your skin and doesn´t itch


 

My current shampoo and conditioner is from Herbal Essence and it is flavored with pomegranate. The smell is really good and lasts a long time but it doesn´t do a lot for my. Not going to be a favorite.



 

Another red item is my newest pair of  earrings. I love love love them. They look like little dreamcatchers with feathers at the end. I am wearing them very often these days.


 

Last but not least my Michael Kors Jet Set Shopper. It is not a typical vibrant red. It is a little darker but it is really nice. It fits a lot of stuff in this bag and like how the golden hardware is matching with the color. A perfect bag for everyday.


 
Which one is your favorite color ? Which one do you want me to do next ?

Take care. See you. Love K.

Reading Stuff - #girlboss

Hi guys
 
just a small book report for you out there.
Recently I had been reading #girlboss – maybe many of you know this book.





 
It is about a woman who decided not to live her everyday live anymore and started to grow an empire. It is about all the problems you may get or have but never giving up at least not on the whole project.
 
It should be an inspiration for every woman – we can build our own dreams by believing in ourselves and of course a little luck.
But the keys are always hard work, a good idea and of course consistency.
So as we all started into this new year – there is a new chance for everyone to achieve your goals.
Which book are you reading at the moment ?
 
Can you recommend one ?

Take care. See you. Love K.

In the snow with stars and stripes......

Hi guys

I had worn this outfit on Sunday while I was at my parents’ house. Chloe and I had been playing outside in the snow so I was wearing a warm and lined long jacket. It snowed throughout the whole night and it also got really cold so there was a lot of fresh and white stuff there to play for my little pup.
The jacket is from Esprit. It has a belt and a hood with a fake fur edging. It is stuffed with feathers so it is pretty warm. The scarf is s loop scarf with the US flag. It is really soft and super warm especially for colder days. I think it might be from Arizona – don´t know anymore because I already bought it in the summer.

I paired this with a knitted dark blue hat with a pompom on top – still loving the pompom trend although they have been in fashion for a long time. Under the coat I wore a long red cardigan with dark blue details on the sleeves and the button tape.







Getting nice photos from Winter outfits is hard. Everything has to fit together and and you can´t keep your jacket closed otherwise the others  can´t see the real Outfit but then it is getting really cold after taking a few pictures. I am really looking forward to spring – everything is getting easier.

Hope you are having a great week so far.

Take care. See you. Love K.

Office gadgets - makes working much prettier

Hi guys

today´s post is for all the bloggers or desk workers out there. It is about the little things we use daily and how to make working a lot nicer by beautifiying your tools.

The first thing I wanted for this year was a personalized calender for 2016. I got mine from persoenlicherkalender.de. You can chose everything there - fonts, colors, sizes, pictures, headings and so on and so on.......


This is how their website  looks. They also have notebooks and big calendars.







The other thing I currently found and I am loving are pencils with Swarowski crystals. They are super glittery and so nice to watch.






Another thing I needed is this super cute owl and sausage post it pack.




 
 
And of course a Laptop case - mine is made of this cool Neopren materail like the bathing suits are made of
 
 



Which are your favorite  Office Gadgets - mine are always colorful and with lots of Patterns - I like them a lot
 
 
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
Take care. See you. Love K.

Vichy Dermablend - The best one I could possibly find....

Hi guys

today I am posting about the best foundation I found for me. It is such a great product and obviously I am a little sad that I haven´t recognized it before.

I had been looking for a good foundation for about ages. Always used one but never was really satisfied. But times have changed for me. I purchased this one about three months ago and I could´t be happier.

The foundation is from Vichy - it is a teint correcting one - which means - it corrects the dark spots under your eyes or if you have some really bad skin problems like acne or just a few pimples it helps a lot. It creates a nice and fresh looking soft teint. I am totally convinced.

It is really concentrated, you only need a small drop of it per day which makes the tube really longlasting.

They have 5 five different colors. Depends on what is your skin tone. 







Which one is your favorite foundation ? 

Take care. See you. Love K.

2015 Beauty Favorites

Hi guys,

today I am doing a little beauty retrospect on my favorites of 2015.

Mascara:

I am always using one from Manhattan. Tried a few different brands but always finding my way back to this one.




Fake lashes:

Those are the one and only ones and I would never change them again. They are from Red Cherry – my favorite lash brand. I order them at the kosmetik4less website. I am hoping they continue producing them until I am 80. I only change with the length.
They are from XS to L available. I use the XS and S ones. They are super naturally and super soft to wear. You can´t even feel them while wearing.






Make-Up:
Lately I found a great foundation from Vichy. It is called Dermablend and it is a correcting foundation. It is absolutely awesome. It is covering up immediately, stays throughout the whole day and is so light to wear. And the best is it so concentrated that you only need a drop per day.



Lip-Balm:

The perfect Lip balm for me in 2015 had been and still is Bee natural. They have 3 flavor. Mango, Pomegranate and Key Lime. Haven´t tried the last one but they are absolutely great. They make super soft hydrated lips for hours and the taste is also really nice.




Perfume:
I always use the same type of perfumes – fresh and flowery – when they are too heavy or too sweat I get a terrible headache. So this year my most used perfurme had been flower by Kenzo. I totally love the smell, I could bath in it.






Shower Gel:
Found the perfect shower gel – with matching body lotion . It is from Yves Rocher – the secret d´essences. It is called Neroli. 
It is a kind of flowery scent.




Body Lotion:





Shampoo and Conditioner:

Haven´t found one which is quite awesome – I tried some of the newer ones from Herbal Essence. The smell is great and they are really affordable but there must be better ones out there. Hopefully.



If you would like recommendations about other beauty products - feel free to ask.

Take care. See you. Love K.

First Instagram Round Up 2016



Hi guys



so here is my first Instagram Round up for this year. I am sorry for not posting so regularly since the new year has started. But there is a whole bunch of stuff I gotta do. I am going to move into my own house – so there are many things on my to do list these days, but I am trying to manage them as good as I can.



Brown leather and zigzag tights

I always had been a friend of extraordinary legwear – especially tights. I paired them with a light brown colored skirt and a knitted black pullover to set the focus on the legs. I also wore a matching scarf with a check pattern.

I liked this outfit a lot because it works for work as well as for a dinner.






Red and black checkered

This outfit was super warm and super comfortable. I had worn this to the hair dresser and it had to be comfortable because I got new highlights and I was sitting there for ages. I wore a destroyed pair of jeans with black booties and a black long cardigan. The focus had to be on this super soft and awesome scarf. The back has a different pattern than the front so you

are able to wear it in different ways and there a lot of colors you can pair it with. And the best it is only 14.95 € from New Yorker. Gotta be quick.






Orange is key…

This had been the blush that I recommended for New Years Eve. It is from Catrice and it is or had been Limited Edition. So maybe it is out of stock already. The jewelry on sale too. The bracelet and the earrings are no matching line but they kind of looked good together so I put them onto the picture. They are I am.





Poncho – checkered and grey

I had worn this on New Years Day because I had to wear something warm and cozy after staying up so long. I was freezing throughout the whole day because I only got a few hours of sleep and this poncho kept me warm. It is grey. I know that I have a lot of grey stuff but I think this is the most versatile color in fashion. This one has got orange stripes in the checkered pattern.

I paired it with orange jewelry and kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple in grey.





Long cardigan and a pop of color

This was an outfit I had worn for running some errands after all the holidays. Going to the grocery store to buy food and posting some letters. All that stuff you couldn´t do during the holidays. I kept it pretty simple with this one. A dark colored pair of jeans, a grey long sleeve and a nice long cardigan with a statement necklace. Black velvet boots ( my favorite ones from Pier One)

and my current obsession – my Dune London turquoise tote. Always a good idea of adding a pop of color, especially when the weather is so awful. Since the sunny Christmas days we only had rain and fog all the time.






Salt´n Pepper and a touch of bronze

I had worn this quite simple outfit on a very snowy day. I always like a warm knitted cardigan to wear over a thin pullover or a longsleeve and this oversized one is perfect. The salt´n pepper pattern is really cool and it actually matches with a lot of different colors. I paired it with a pair of bootcut jeans and black booties. And of course also a pop of color. My royal blue

buffalo shopper. I also wanted to show the nail color. I picked out a bronze one. In my opinion over Christmas time and the colder months the metal colors like gold, silver and bronze are perfect for any occasion you have to attend.





Leopard and and a button down

I had worn this outfit to our companies Christmas party. It was on a Friday and started at lunchtime so didn´t want to be too fancy. I paired this white and sheer button down with a leopard cardigan and a dark pair of jeans – fits  for almost every occasion. Wore it with matching boots. I put my hair up in a big bun and put on a pair of glittering earrings. Totally enough for this kind of party.

It was a nice afternoon – sitting together with all the colleagues and talking about other themes than work. The food was a lot and really good. They had a green pistachios desert to die for.







Favorite Cardigan and a hint of plum

This was my cinema outfit. I am a big fan of the Peanuts – and of course I had to watch the new Peanuts movie. I decided to go with this outfit because I can get cold with the air-condition over a long time. I had worn my favorite white knit cardigan. I paired it with a boyfriend jeans and Buffalo booties. You can´t see it in this picture but I had also worn a plumy hat and a knitted plumy scarf.






Blue glitter and overknees

This is one of my favorite winter evening outfits. I paired this light blue glitter pullover ( currently on sale at the H&M kids department) with a pair of dark blue jeans and black overknees and a boyfriend blazer. I also had a necklace in the same color like the pullover. We just went out to grab some snacks and a drink at a local restaurant. Perfectly dressed for this place.






Stripes and a cashmere scarf

This had been my latest Sunday outfit. It was raining cats and dogs and it was soo cold. I was freezing the whole morning so I decided to go with a cashmere scarf. You can never go wrong with one. Mine is from Repeat Cashmere in a soft camel tone. I paired it with a matching striped longsleeve from H&M and my destroyed jeans from Gina Tricot. As it started raining I decided to take a hat with me because I was heading to my aunts 77th birthday. It was very funny. Old people have a lot of great stories to tell…





So guys this was my first Instagram Round Up for this year. I hope everyone had a nice beginning. Let´s see what is going to happen…..
