KIKO MILANO Into the Dark Collection

KIKO Milano presents Into the Dark the seventh capsule collection in collaboration with Vogue Italia to celebrate 20 years of KIKO Milano. The collection is designed by Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez founders of label Au Jour Le Jour.
Sensual and provocative this capsule collection represents to the best the Au Jour Le Jour label. Sophisticated and ultra modern the brand through the use of wallpaper  motifs, animal print and very exclusive materials create a very modern yet provocative style.
The collection is very daring and full of passion with extreme finishes, hyper pigmented shades and metallic effects. Complexion is radiant and glowy thanks to Into the Dark Shimmering Face Powder. Use it on face, neck and décolleté for a bright and radiant effect with a metallic finish. Put focus on the eyes with the Into the Dark Metallic Eyeshadows. These are liquid eyeshadows with an ultra metal finish. They apply very easy thanks to their handy applicator and are also super blendable. Finish off your eye look with the Into the Dark Eye Pencils to outline the eye contour and a touch of Into the Dark Mascara for extreme volume. Match your metallic eye look to your lips with the Into the Dark Metallic Lip Colour. The texture is innovative and highly pigmented giving you an amazing metallic effect.
I honestly could not wait to try the Into the Dark Black Mask with charcoal powder and black clay. Black masks are having a moment right now and this one from KIKO is great to minimise the appearance of pores and also helps to remove impurities.
Part of the collection is also a pretty and practical make up bag which is the perfect companion to take the products of the collection anywhere.

Joy in every cup with Nespresso

Nespresso unveiled its limited edition festive collection, created in collaboration with renowned artists Craig & Karl. Color and seasonal delights emerge from this exclusive collection inspired by traditional sweets reminiscent of nostalgic childhood memories. Nespresso is with the duo of contemporary designers Craig & Karl. They are known for their love of simple forms, crazy-colored drawings and also for their sarcastic humor. The duo injected their signature colors and patterns in the visual world of Nespresso Variations coffees Limited Edition and in a selection of unique accessories, perfect gifts for all coffee and design lovers.

"We were inspired by the aromas of the Nespresso Variations and by the idea that they 
were made with the old-fashioned confectionery in mind, "say Craig and Karl. 
"The design had to be modern and trendy; we have refined the striped Christmas cane pattern, very present in the past. 
This classic motif can evoke nostalgia to the customer, while being very contemporary
in its showy and graphic form. We also loved the fact that the stripes once
applied on the dome capsules gave them the appearance of treats".

The Holiday season is the perfect time for unique experiences and Nespresso coffees Variations Confetto in Limited Edition do not disappoint with their aromas with amazing taste of
sweets with pure Arabica of high quality. There are three Variations to taste, each with its own

MICHAEL KORS launches its new fragrance for women SEXY RUBY

Just in time for the Holidays Michael Kors launches a new fragrance and is red, sexy and very glamourous! Sexy Ruby is inspired by the link between seduction, strength and of course glamour!

"Sexy Ruby is the story of strong women. Women who know what they want and go after it".
Michael Kors

Get seduced by the reflections of the ruby crystals and discover a new side of you, more confident, more daring and more alluring than ever. The fragrance is as brilliant as the jewel that inspired it a moodern chypre that sparkles with sensuality. The temptation of juicy rasberry with Apricot NaturePrint from France open the fragrance while alluring scarlet gemstones come to life through a striking display of luscious rose petals. The dry-down notes fuse to give you show-stopping textures.
The bottle is a jewel on its own way with the dramatic red-faceted glass crafted with exquisite detail and capped by the signature Kors golden square. Very sexy, very Michael Kors!
Dress your skin not only with this faboulous fragrance but also with the Sexy Radiance Body Collection which includes some absolute must-haves for the Holiday Season.
The Sexy Radiance Collection includes a Sexy Shower Oil, a Silky Body Lotion and a Lip Lacquer in Ruby Red. 
I am in love with the Sexy Ruby fragrance so of course I had to have a lipstick to match it and it had to be Ruby Red! It is an iconic shade with beautiful luminous shine and comes in eye-catching golden Michael Kors case, my to-go lipstick for the festive Season!
I am happy to say that I have one bottle of Michael Kors Sexy Ruby to giveaway just in time for the Holidays! So if you would like a chance to win it follow my Instagram page and you will soon find out how!

My experience at "Nespresso Gourmet Weeks"

Nespresso Gourmet Weeks are now on their 5th edition, this year are held from 29th October until 19th November 2017. With the Nespresso Gourmet Weeks you have the oppurtunity to try for yourself how fine dining and coffee perfectly combine to give you a fantastic gastronomic experience.
I had the oppurtunity to try one of the Nespresso Gourmet Weeks menu at the restaurant Due Sud at Hotel Splendide Royal Lugano last weekend and it was truly delightful. Chef Domenico Ruberto really delighted us with a creative menu with exquisite dishes and notes of Nespresso Grand Crus.
The end of course to a delicious meal was of course a cup of a exclusive selection Kilimanjaro Peaberry for me and a stronger Nepal Lamjung for my husband. You still have time to book your lunch and/or dinner at your chosen restaurant by quoting "Nespresso Gourmet Weeks" at time of booking. Visit Nespresso Gourmet Weeks for more info.

Thanks Nespresso for the great night!
