Pure refreshment with the Starbucks Refresha® drinks and Frappuccinos

The new summer drinks at Starbucks bring some much needed cooling for warm days. In addition to the well-known and popular Iced Coffees and Iced Teas, new refreshas and frappuccinos offer a variety of flavors - from crispy and chocolatey to berry and fruity to lemony and tangy - there is something cool for everyone this summer. 

In a completely new way, fresh strawberries, strawberry aroma and the super fruit açai come together for two thirst-quenching drinks: the Strawberry Açai Refresha and the Pink Coconut Refresha, which brings a holiday feeling in the glass with coconut milk.

The Cold Lime Refresha is making a comeback this summer. A mix of lemon and lime lemonade, shaken with fresh lime slices, makes the drink a freshness kick on hot days.

Chocolate meets coffee meets caramel

Frappuccino fans will also find what they are looking for on the Starbucks summer menu, as Starbucks is presenting two new creations this summer. A combination of crunchy chocolate and caramel brittle pieces made from sunflower seeds, mixed with milk and ice cream and a cap of coffee whipped cream topped with chocolate caramel brittle pieces becomes the Chocolate Coffee Crunch Frappuccino.

The Caramel Coffee Brownie Frappuccino combines two dessert classics in one and the same glass: A mix of caramel brownie brulée pieces, milk and ice cream is topped off with coffee cream and a topping made from caramel brulée pieces and brownie pieces.

Iced classics

Iced coffee shouldn't be missing in summer either. At Starbucks, every espresso-based drink can also be ordered in the iced version - from the classic Iced latte to the Iced caramel cloud macchiato. For a cool start to the day, coffee lovers choose a Starbucks Cold Brew or Cold Brew Latte.

The classic Iced Teas from Starbucks are excellent thirst quenchers in summer temperatures. For both the new Lemon Iced Tea and the Peach Iced Tea, freshly brewed green tea is poured over ice cubes and then refined with a lemon or peach aroma.

The new summer drinks are available now at Starbucks Coffee Houses.

Hair Rituel by Sisley presents the Cream 230

 In recent years, heat-styling tools have become increasingly popular, allowing us to take our appearance to the next level and revitalise tired hair by adding volume, creating straight, glossy, tamed or wavy locks, subtle curls, and more.

But the use of these tools, especially on a daily basis, weakens the hair fibre and deteriorates its vitality.
Subjected to temperatures of up to 230°C, the hair suffers and is damaged. What if heat instead of damaging the hair, restored it?
Hair Rituel by Sisley presents a new thermoactive technology, that infuses restorative active ingredients into the heart of the hair fibre to protect and enhance it. Part of the “230 Complex”, this technology draws on two ionic polymers that can actively repair under the effect of heat.
In a radical change, the powerful formula of the 230 Complex transforms “flash drying” from styling into “flash repair”.
When activated by heat, it forms an adhesive micro-gel and repairs the hair in two essential steps:
the damaged parts are sealed and breakage is repaired. The hair fibre is left glossy and, for the first time, enhanced by heat: the hair is repaired and reflects light once more.
Not only does the formula defend the fibre against the repeated effects of heat up to 230°C by surrounding the hair in an undetectable, ultralight protective barrier, it also limits the degradation of keratin.
A non-rinse hair care cream, the Cream 230 is applied to the lengths and ends of damp or dry hair before using heat-styling tools such as hairdryers, straighteners or curling irons.
It is enriched with precious botanical oils of Camellia and Moringa, which nourish and soften the hair, as well as Cotton proteins that strengthen its protein structure. Its texture melts into the hair fibre upon application.
Now strengthened, hair is nourished, silky and fully detangled. Its glossiness is restored, leaving it radiating beauty. Blow-drying is easier and styles are perfectly defined.
In addition, The Cream 230 can also be applied to dry hair to provide non-rinse nourishing care.

Individual sports like running are becoming more and more popular, especially in times like these. The different surfaces and different environmental factors influence the athlete's performance. In order to protect and support the body and especially the feet of the runner, FALKE offers a wide range of products that perfectly combine functionality and design. All FALKE running socks combine optimal moisture management, thanks to a special mix of materials, with a perfect fit and anatomical padding.


When trail running, the runner moves away from the developed paths, which results in special requirements. In order to guarantee the athlete ideal protection here too, the new FALKE RU Trail offers functions specially tailored to trail running. The increased risk of twisting due to the uneven surfaces is reduced by a special compression zone in the ankle area that acts like a bandage. The tight fit in the foot area also ensures that the stocking does not slip and offers maximum support. Optimal protection inside and outside the shoe is guaranteed by a medium-thick padding. The quick-drying combination of materials keeps your feet dry, even if moisture penetrates from the outside.


The FALKE Performance Apparel collection also impresses with the selection of innovative materials and the special cut. Circular knitted T-shirts and tops made of high-quality polyamide yarns guarantee optimal wearing comfort and maximum freedom of movement thanks to their precisely fitting functional zones. The tops, tights and shorts are particularly skin-friendly, quick-drying and odorless, with optimal temperature and moisture regulation.

Summer Love with Dosenbach

Finally days are getting longer again and the sky is blue. The trees full of blossoms and the warm rays of the sun are slowly getting us into the mood for the beginning of the summer days. What a wonderful feeling to walk barefoot in a meadow for the first time and to combine light summer shoes with our favorite dresses.

We like it best this summer in natural colors like beige, brown and green. Espadrilles made of leather, wedge heels with raffia details, suede look or in boho chic with lacing, a wonderful change for our outfits after the long winter!

And so that the summer look is complete, we also exchange our heavy handbags from the winter season for light and playful raffia baskets and shoulder bags with fine leather details.

Søstrene Grene : "HYGGE" IN THE OPEN SKY

 A new season is dawning. With a range of novelties and classics, the sisters inspire to create an atmosphere for "hygge" in the open air. There are decorative baskets and boxes, outdoor lighting and lanterns as well as tools and dishes for an atmospheric outdoor table to discover.

The new selection of garden items and tableware brings a feeling of "hygge" into the warm summer evenings. The atmospheric novelties enchant both indoor and outdoor spaces in oases of wellbeing, depending on the weather mood. The new range includes outdoor lighting, decorative baskets, practical boxes and the sisters' popular LED lamp in a new design.

The beautiful, practical baskets are used to put things together again in the evening, to store them well and to bring them into the house. When the evenings get lighter and the temperatures warmer, the sisters like to move the dining area outside. The food is prepared outdoor and the picnic is enjoyed in the open air. Included are the fine stoneware from Anna and Clara and many useful utensils for the barbecue season. In addition, the sisters are introducing a number of new products, all of which are wonderfully suited to set a wonderful outdoor atmosphere.
