makiash / cosmo red

My current favorite nailpolish. Love this hue, perfect mix of red and pink that goes with sunny days like no other. The quality is topnotch, stays on for days without chipping!

travel essentials

Been getting lots of questions about my travel essentials lately…

I travel quite a bit and usually for work so I like to pack lightly and usually opt for only handbaggage for smooth transitions from airports to studio/hotel.

Here is what you’ll usually find in my bag:

1. I always have sunglasses in my bag. These nude glittery (you can shine in nudes, too, not only in metallics and bright colors!) ones are Jimmy Choo for Carrera.

2. Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream (this one is the fragrance free one) is perfect on the plane preventing my lips and cuticles from drying out.

3. PASSPORT!! I r-a-r-e-l-y leave the house without my beloved passport. You never know how your day might change!!
Love my minty green passport cover from Aspinal of London… It has seen soooo many travels, hihi.

4. With a little tweak here and there you can go from casual to evening chic. That said I usually have some statement jewelry with me to attend work related events and dinners after castings/work day. These sparkly danglers are a find from New York City while having a shopping mania with the one and only Claudia Cifu.

5. While doing castings and working, a model should always arrive to appointments au natural (with natural hair and make-up). That’s why Pantene’s Instant Nourishing Spray is perfect for my hair. The spray leaves it natural but polished so my hair’s easily styled at work. It also smells amazing, let me tell you!!

6. I just love how little things really can make a difference. In my opinion a good manicure finishes the outfit so I like to paint my nails for dinners etc. to add a bit more done up look after running around the whole day. Essie’s Red is a classic and a sure fool proof glamourfier.

Do you have any similar travel-must-haves to mine?

prabal lips

Pretty smitten for the Prabal Gurung ss14 makeup look by Charlotte Tilbury.
The pink lips look surprisingly fresh and work as a nice accent to the au natural & minimal make up.

ready, set, summer

Kicks got me totally summer ready with this little sweetie of a package. A big kiss to the Kicks-team, thank you!
I’ve always loved the delicate shimmer of the bronzing oils and just tried this brand new one. It feels nice and smooth on the skin, almost like a dry oil which I really like.
Can’t wait to try the Lipgloss, either! Doesn’t that red look just delicious!?

mani dreams

A good manicure makes a girl feel so fine!! While I usually go for the femme fatale red or sweet girly pink I sometimes feel a bit extra on the mani-side too and I just found this amazing manicurist (Stateside, though…. Of course…. So the lil touchup would not really flatter the wallet…) and she makes some crazy cool designs. Check Jessica Washick out and if you are not flying to the States anytime soon, get seriously inspired!
