Blonde have more fun? From now on definetely at your nearest Starbucks! 
Starbucks has recently launched the  new Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast giving you a whole new coffee experience. The light roast is now available as a mild yet intense alternative to the popular Starbucks Espresso Roast, which has been the basis of all hand made espresso based drinks such as the Flat White or the Vanilla Latte for years, on the Starbucks Menu board.
Created by the Starbucks Master roasters with more than 40 years of experience, the Blonde Espresso Roast convinces with its soft texture, rounded off by a light citrus note. It is the ideal alternative for those who like their espresso-based drinks a little milder, but do not want to compromise on the taste.
With the Blonde Espresso, Starbucks is following the trend towards more diversification in espresso based beverages. The unique blonde blend combines beans from Latin America and East Africa. The Latin American coffees provide a round, gentle taste, while the East African coffees incorporate fine lemon, orange and caramel notes.

Dr.Hauschka new Eye Make-Up Remover

Our eyes are a reflection of our soul. We need them to observe,  and sometimes seduce. Eyes are one of our most important senses. That's why they need extra care a well-deserved break. The new Dr. Hauschka Eye Make-Up Remover gently and thoroughly cleanse, while eliminating even waterproof makeup from the sensitive area around the eyes.
Dr. Hauschka new Eye Make-Up Remover will be available from January 15th, 2019.

Deep natural cleansing

The two phases of the new Eye Make-Up Remover combine oil and a water based cleaning. The oily phase removes makeup very effectively. No more nasty rubbing. The aqueous phase removes the water-soluble components of the makeup as well as the excess oil.
In addition to euphrasia extracts, the aqueous phase also includes extracts of fennel seed and rose water. All these medicinal plants have soothing properties. The oily phase contains, among others, sesame and sunflower oil. Sesame oil is distinguished by its particular antioxidant effect. Light sunflower oil with its many essential fatty acids makes the skin soft and supple.
Make sure you shake the product well before use so that the phases bind, this way the xleanser can be fully effective. Remove your makeup gently as the eye area and eyelashes are very fragile. Always clean the lashes carefully from top to bottom in the direction of growth. Avoid rubbing or insisting along the lash root.

Best of luck and many victories ahead to HUBLOT friends of the brands Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Karolina Pliskova and Borna Coric!

As the grand slam tennis tournament circuit started again yesterday Hublot wishes the best of luck and many victories ahead to Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Karolina Pliskova and Borna Coric— four great players and friends of the brand!

 “Simona, Elina, Karolina and Borna all had a fantastic 2018 season! We are proud to support them in the huge effort that lies behind their success and we are by their side for this new year. Hublot Loves tennis!” Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.

 As is the case every year, the tennis season picks up again in the Antipodes, beneath the Australian summer sun.
 Yesterday the four great champions, members of the Hublot family— Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Karolina Pliskova and Borna Coric returned to service. The southern hemisphere proved successful for the Romanian Simona Halep — who has been part of the Hublot family since 2016 — when she reached the final of the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year. She threw herself wholeheartedly into 2018, winning on clay in Paris before finishing the season in the same way she began: at number one in the WTA World Rankings.
As for the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, she made the most of this season to bring her collection of tournament victories up to 14 titles. This consistency let her reach fourth place in the WTA ranking of the best women’s players. Australia has been good to Czech Karolina Pliskova since her early career, as she was victorious in the Junior category there in 2010. She has since succeeded in becoming the first Czech player in history to reach number one in the WTA ranking, in 2017—the same year as she joined Hublot as Friend of the Brand —and currently holds eighth place. The man in this winning quartet, Croatian Borna Coric, who has been Hublot Ambassador since 2015, has had a sensational 2018 season with the luxury of defeating Roger Federer twice. First in the finals of Halle, Germany where Borna won his first ATP 500 title, and second in the semifinals of ATP 1000 tournament in Shanghai, China.

Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz

This is the watch that any young man dream to wear on his wrist, a piece that is passed from generation to generation. 
Inspired by a collection of the 1950s, the Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz symbolizes a classicism attached to the past conjugated to the ardor of youth as evidenced by its design: a dial full of nostalgia but with a modern twist, Tissot logo identical to the original, applied faceted indexes, indispensable date to 3 hours and, novelty, quartz movement. The 1950s saw the birth of the Tissot Heritage Visodate and its avant-garde design: clean dial, prominent lines and angular, finesse to wear, original style and, essential function and date at 3 o'clock. The Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz is inspired by its eldest with the chic touches of its time: domed casing ennobled by a range of distinctive bracelets. The young man who wears it embodies values, desires and aspirations of the 21st century and is fond of this model, which has a lot of history. This is the piece that would have could belong to his grandfather and has a unique patina, but also the ideal companion of everyday life. From urban life to the office to weekends on the road, the Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz has all the qualities to suit modern life. It has this spirit - mix of retro and modernity -  a way of reminding in life, yes, there is always somewhere an experience to live. And, a new chapter to write.
