MAC Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion Spray

This lotion infused with the active marine bright formula and super-duo charged water, it brightens, softens and conditions skin. The lotion feels really nice on skin and it is very lightweight so it is quickly absorbed by skin.
I have been using this product for a couple of weeks and let m say I am hooked. First of all because it is a multifunctional products as I use it as both toner and moisturiser, at least in the summer months when my skin doesn't need extra nourishment. I love the fact that unlike most toners which can leave your skin feeling quite dry and tight with this one my skin stays soft and moisturised. I also like the fact that it doesn't cointain alcoohol as it is water-based.
Thanks to the vitamin C cointaned in the lotion it also helps a lot in keeping dark spots at bay. I have noticed my skin looks definetely brighter since I have been using it and also my complexion is more even. This lotion really has made a difference to my skin as it looks clearer and definetely softer. You can apply it using a cotton pad or just like I do by splashing a bit of the lotion directly on face and applying it with fingers.
 This product is suitable to just about any skintype and I would recommend it to anyone!

H&M reveals another look from the KENZOxHM collection and it is a stunner!

H&M has revealed another look from the KENZOxHM worn by Anna of the North. Surely this dress is a gorgeous piece and will see all of us fighting in order to get our hands on it!
Her look is a fresh interpretation of the creative directors of KENZO, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, an iconic piece designed by Kenzo founder Takada: a folk short dress with frills and various prints from the collection. Stunning!

Anna is a twenty-five-Norwegian musician who has gained worldwide attention earlier this year with her song The Dreamer. Anna is part of the look book of KENZOxHM and is one of the ambassadors of the collection along with the previously announced testimonial Amy Sall, Juliana Huxtable, Oko Ebomo and Isamaya Ffrench.
The KENZOxHM collection will be available in approximately 270 selected stores in the world and online from November 3rd 2016.


My experience with Dr.Hauschka holistic face treatment

The other day as you might have seen from my Instagram account I went for what was my very first Dr. Hauschka treatment. As a fan of the brand I was sure I wasn't going to be disappointed.
At Dr.Hauschka they believe in the "Art of touch" and promised I will be rejuvenated. Well, I went for the "Soin Plenitude" and the lovely and experienced Cynthia from Atelier Gam in Yverdon-les-Bains certainly made sure I had a wonderful experience with my Dr.Hauschka treatment.
What makes a Dr.Hauschka treatment different from a regular treatment that you might have had somewhere else is that the products are at the basis of both face and body treatments and that they use a holistic and rhytmic approach which provide stimuli that boost regeneration and wellbeing.
Cynthia started my treatment with a relaxing foot bath, the stress of the day disappeared in a flash. At the heart of the treatment stays lymphatic stimulation which the esthetician performed using brush strokes as well as some hands movements on my face.
Dr. Hauschka's rituals include some massaging with the use of brushes. Lymphatic stimulation has been at the heart of Dr.Hauschka treatments for ages. Through stimulating gentle brush strokes she goes to make our lymph capillaries relax and unblock so that oxygen and nutrients can penetrate cells and tissues are purified.
I really enjoyed the facial which followed and we certainly all know that a perfect cleansing routine is key in order to have a clear and dewy complexion. The esthetician started by removing my makeup with Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Milk and then used the Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream both products are soap free and mild. She also suggested I keep using those also at home for my cleansing routine together with the Clarifying Toner.
Then she went on with a Dr.Hauschka steam bath while the Clarifying Clay Mask was acting on my skin. My eyes were made to feel relaxed and cool thanks to cotton wood pads soaked with Dr.Hauschka Eye Revive.
At Dr.Hauschka they don't believe in exfoliating products but only in cleansing away what the skin is ready to relinquish in order not too be to harsh on skin.
What makes a Dr. Hauschka treatment special is also the knowledge and expertise that a Dr.Hauschka esthetician has. They have received training, they know the products and treatments and know how they work and this way they can choose the best products/treatment for your skin conditions. The esthetician adjusted the care programme exactly to suit my skin conditions so after the Clarifying Clay Mask she went to apply the Regenerating Mask. Pure bliss!
I left feeling completely relaxed, pampered and truly rejuvenated inside and outside!

Thanks Dr.Hauschka for the lovely treatment!

To this day, every drop of JACK DANIEL'S sold worldwide is made at the distillery in Lynchburg.

"In a world where change is a constant, keeping the same method of production of whiskey , in the same place over a period of 150 years is an incredible achievement," said Mark McCallum, chairman of JACK DANIEL'S. 
"In my opinion, our ability to stand by Mr. Jack's lifelong motto" Every day we make it, we'll make it the best we can ", led to our resistance and our success. In this anniversary we celebrate our history, traditions and values, by continuing to tell  unique and powerful stories that have contributed to the uniqueness and particularity of the JACK DANIEL'S brand.

Chloé or Kenzo? I choose both!

Have you ever found yourself in the situation where you got your outfit choise spot on but then you don't know which bag to take? Well, this is exactly what happened to me on this occasion so what did I do? Of course I worn both! I honestly couldn't decide between my new Kenzo tote and my even newer Chloé Marcie, but in any case I think they both work well with this look. I am in love with my new Chloé Marcie, it is my first bag in a tan colour and I am already wondering how I managed without a bag this shade all this time! It works well basically with any colour and I am pretty sure it will be one of my to go bag also for Fall.
The Kenzo tote of course is very summery and fun.. I liked it as soon as I saw it! It puts me in a good mood and it is also very spacious, ideal for travelling!
My holidays are getting nearer now I am sure both bags will join me on my travels!
