best high-end rose perfumes

Three rose fragrances compared: Le Labo, Hèrmes, Keiko Mecheri

I’ve a thing for rose perfumes. I don’t know why, but it’s a fragrance family I’m drawn to again and again. We’re not talking about the girly, light and fresh roses though – I like my roses heavy, deep and original. Here’s a comparison of three (high-end, niche) rose fragrances I love.READ MORE

January beauty favourites

January beauty favourites feat. makeup, skincare and perfume!

April is the cruellest month? I always wondered about that sentiment. Can there be a crueller month than January? It’s cold, we had to put the Christmas decoration away and I don’t know about you, but I’m totally broke after the Christmas and sale extravaganza that was December. So, what’s better than an infusion of cheap, colourful and blingy makeup into your life? While this works for me, Astrid is more about the feel-good vibes of amazing skincare and a good perfume. Which camp do you belong to?READ MORE

Greenery Pantone Color of the Year 2017 makeup

Greenery – Pantone Color of the Year 2017: how to wear it

Every year, Pantone comes out with their Color of the Year. We’ve covered quite a few years already – Marsala, here, and Rose Quartz and Serenity here. This year’s Greenery is quite a challenge for makeup enthusiasts – how am I to wear a spring-y yellow green? Might you ask. And also, Color of the Year. Why should I even care? Short answer: Because Pantone subtly influences your shopping behaviour. Go ahead, scoff and laugh – I’ll prove it to you after the cut! (Also, pretty makeup.)READ MORE

Agism in the beauty world, what happens when beauty products are discontinued, some Holiday DIYs (you can’t start too early!), and a very down to earth guideline how to start exercising when you’re depressed.

Beauty products for the zombie apocalypse

Beauty products for the zombie apocalypse

Halloween is a wonderful opportunity to look at darker topics than the ones that are usually covered here on the blog. I’m very happy that I can point out a serious issue that’s easy to overlook, with catastrophic results. You want to be prepared!!!!! It’s very important to think about this as early as possible. This is the reason I’ll write about the beauty products you need when the zombie apocalypse hits today.[1]READ MORE

Perfumes for the time between summer and fall

I totally realize that Shanghai is weather-wise somewhat else entirely, but given the recent heatwave Europe is having right now, I guess my post won’t receive a lot of raised eyebrows. In short, fall and PSLs are rolling in like an avalanche, but it surely doesn’t feel like it. It definitely doesn’t feel like I should swathe myself in all those warm, woody, cashmere-scarf like scents, but I am searching for perfumes for the time between summer and fall.READ MORE

August beauty favourites

August beauty favourites – makeup and skincare!

August. Summer is nearly over (or not, depending where you are), it’s my birthday month (and oh how many birthdays I’ve spent with miserable weather as a child), and these are all reasons only to surround myself with things that make me happy. The scent of oranges is one of those things, incidentally, and what colour could be more fitting for summer favourites than happy, bright orange?!READ MORE
