Pure seduction à la Fifty Shades of Grey for a sensual movie night !

Too hot to go out? Why not organize a seductive and sensual movie night in?
Love goes through your stomach. For the sequel of the movie "Fifty Shades of Gray" Christian also takes up this classic way of seduction and invites Anastasia for dinner. 
He is ready for anything to win her back and reveals her his darkest secrets while she is doing everything she can to forget him. The passion between the two ignites anew and this time there are no rules! 
It remains open whether it was Christian's seduction or his food choices who seduced her.
The fact is that certain foods have an aphrodisiac effect and stimulate more than just the appetite. 
With these ingredients you can create a tingling menu which arouses desire and passion and guarantees love at first bite!

Artichoke

The artichoke was already popular as an aphrodisiac in the 15th century and has since been known to have a pleasurable effect. Certain substances of the artichoke stimulate the release of estrogens, which in turn are responsible for a good blood flow.

Chili

Chili contains  oil capsaicin, which promotes blood circulation and stimulates the body through its hot taste. It is, therefore, in the truest sense of the word the hottest among the spices. 


Figs

It was not only because of its seductive sweetness that the fig was known as an aphrodisiac already among the ancient Greeks. Taste them plain  or drizzled with some honey.

Honey

Honey is particularly stimulant in men and vitamin B increases testosterone production.

Ginger

Ginger is a true miracle under the medicinal plants as it stimulates blood circulation. This also has an effect on the sensitiveness of the sensitive areas of men and women.

Cocoa

Cocoa and the products that are extracted from it (for example, chocolate) contain the amino acid tryptophan, which contribute to potency enhancement. Another positive effect is the mood-lightening effect. Already the Aztecs knew about the stimulating effect of chocolate. It contains the perennial messenger phenylethylamine - which puts us in a state of happiness similar to love.

Nutmeg

The intoxicating effect of nutmeg has been known since the 16th century. The erotic oil in the nut  which makes you feel more at the most beautiful side of the world.

Rosemary

This delicious herb is also associated with the love goddess Aphrodite and is intended to sharpen the gaze of men for female charms. It increases blood circulation and sensitivity.

Vanilla

Vanilla is regarded as particularly fortunate. It smells sweet and the smell resembles lustful pheromones, which provide the recipient with a pinch of sensuality.

Cinnamon

The perfect ingredient for an intimate dinner for two, because the spice from dried rinds stimulates the production of pheromones and has a beneficial effect on blood flow.








My Dubai looks part one!

Herewith I am sharing some of the looks I wore in Dubai, starting with this one which I am particularly fond of. It's a full H&M look from the current summer collection, I fall in love with this jacket and its damascus print, it is so elegant and really elevates any outfit. The pants are 3/4 lenght with frills and they are not only very comfy but also oh so cute! As you might have noticed I also have the full lenght version of the same black pants, I just love the fabric and style. They can be worn down if worn with flats or dressed up if worn with heels. A metallic camisole top also from H&M completed my look with the magnificent Dubai skyline as background!

MANHATTAN new Volume Shake Mascara

In Summer we like all things fresh don't we? Now we can keep fresh also our mascara! Manhattan new Volume Shake Mascara cointains a patented shaker which refreshes the formulation as needed. I don't know you but I am loving the idea of having a fresh mascara ready for use!
How does it work? Well, after ten yeard of research Manhattan is launching a mascara with a patent-pending formulation of a water-gel structure with the unique combination of water and wax.
 Thanks to the new shake system inside the mascara the texture becomes very creamy again after shaking.
You simply need to shake the mascara three to five times vertically and the texture mixes again while remaining fresh and preventing it from drying out. The Volume Shake Mascara thanks to its defining brush gives a beautiful fan of lashes all with maximum separation and from corner to corner.
This of course will ensure that you get wonderful volume but also a clump-free application and all with that fresh feeling that you usually can get only from a brand new mascara.
















Ready for Summer with Made in Sephora!


Summer is officially here and Sephora is ready with a range of products from Made in Sephora with fresh textures, bold colours and holiday scents to make our summer a fantastic one. 
Be seduced by the new Bubble Bath and Shower Gel in new Summer fragrances such as Monoi Fever, Mango Tropics or Out at Sea and make your bath time a moment to remember with these gorgeous summer scents. These two-in-one cleansers make your skin really soft while leaving it ultra smooth. The packaging is also a stylish addition to any bathroom, just like the one of the new Hand washes available in the same scents as the Bubble Bath & Shower Gel. They are not only eye-catching but also have a clever formula which rinses off with ease and leave your hands clean and delicately scented.
And to care for your hands the new Moisturizing Hand Creams again in the same summery fragrances are not greasy, hydrating and practical to take everywhere! My favourite has to be the Tea Infusion, so fresh with a delicate green tea scent.
To make our skin go through the hot summer time Made in Sephora innovates with a range of products which give us strong sensations such as oils with hybrid textures and detoxifying foams such as the Moisturizing  Shower Oil. It makes our skin soft and supple thanks to its hybrid texture which turns into milk when rinsed and leaves no greasy residue on the skin.
I am loving also the new  Detoxifying Foam Cleanser which gets rid of impurities, dead cells, makeup residues and excess sebum all in one go. This Detoxifying Foam which cointains Ghassoul has a purifying and detoxifying formula really helps in getting rid of all kind of impuritie and leaves you with a fresh complexion.
Need to cool down after an hot day at work? You will love the Aloe Vera Moisturizing & Refreshing Body Jelly. It gives you the moisture power of a cream with the lightness of a gel. Skin is refreshed, quenched. Enriched in water-rich Aloe Vera and softening Cactus extract for supple skin. The formula is fresh, light and not greasy making the perfect summer moisturizer!
Pamper your body from head to toe with the All-Inclusive Mask set with all my favourite masks such as the Rose Lip Mask, Algae Face Mask and Green Tea Eye Mask and be gorgeous all summer long!
