Summer to Autumn

Summer to Autumn

The temperatures are slowly decreasing, the light is getting different and the leaves slowly start to fall. Autumn is just around the corner and while I'm still hoping that we will still get some heat days, the forecast says something different. Now, the good thing about Autumn is, that you can still wear some of the summer trends you're not ready to leave behind without freezing or looking weird. 

Denim A Line Skirt
This was one of THE summer trends 2015 and with a little help you can make it the Autumn trend. Pair it with some cute over the knee boots (these are the Lowlands from Stuart Weitzman), a cool crop top from your summer wardrobe and end it with a leather jacket. It is simple but cute and even though you're wearing a skirt the overknee boots help you prevent to freeze.

Highwaisted Denim Shorts
Again, really easy. Knee High socks, cute booties or sneakers and a nice long sleeved blouse and you're good to go for Autumn. Ps: You can even wear them in winter, just wear tights instead of socks.

Patchwork Dress
We all know that patchwork is still in style in Autumn. While designers like Burberry showed us that they're a staple piece in our Autumn wardrobe, high street sellers like Zara followed their lead. 
Again I would pair them with over knee boots and when it gets really cooler with a pair of fine tights.

Birkenstocks had their comeback last year and shortly after Designers like Isabel Marant followed. They are super comfortable and personally I think they're really cute. You saw them a lot this summer and with some cool distressed black skinny jeans a bardot top (also stolen from your summer wardrobe) and statement glasses this look is made for those late late summer days. 

What are your summer fashion highlights you're not ready to give up on? 

Ibiza Impressions

I'm in Ibiza at the moment writing this article by the pool with a view on the ocean. Yes, life is nice. Nevertheless, I thought to give you a little overview of my stay here in Ibiza so far as this island offers so much more than just parties, you can eat deliciously good and chill out in cute beach clubs during the day. 

When we arrived we had dinner at Blue Marlin - a restaurant, bar and beach club. The food is really good but pricey. I had a a so called "BMI" Thai Salad with beet tataki and tempura prawns. It was excellent. The vibe is really cool there as well. There is music playing and some people dancing, which makes it have a bit of a club feeling.
Another good restaurant we visited was Las Brisas. A very unknown restaurant here in Ibiza but such a lovely place. It is right on top of the ocean so you have a phenomenal view. I had homemade spinach and ricotta ravioli and they were amazing. The people are really nice there as well and I would definitely recommend this place for the lovebirds out there. It is really romantic and quiet. 
My favorite so far was the restaurant b.for. It is a sushi restaurant and the location is great and the food amazing. Even for people like me who don't eat raw fish! I had tempura chicken, vegetable gyosa and avocado and cucumber maki rolls and for desert Nutella maki rolls (they are the bomb!!). The personnel is really attentive and fast. They also have a big drinks menu. The location is great too. It has a very bar vibe and the tables are really lowm which makes it very chilled and relaxed. I was very surprised by the prices, for what we ate and drank it was not expensive at all. I think it's a must place to go when you visit Ibiza. 

Beach Club
We went to Blue Marlin again but this time during the day. We rented a beach bed and hung out there the whole afternoon. It is really great. You can order food, drinks, basically everything you want. There is music playing and when it gets later in the afternoon people start dancing and it changes into a day party. It is not cheap but I think ok for the things you get. The food is very good. I had a cheeseburger and we shared some Mezze and loads of other stuff. The best thing though is there variety of Sangrias. We chose the one with Rosé and it is literally the best sangria I ever had. So fruity and delicious and not too much alcohol considering you're drinking it during the day. I wouldn't go there every day but if you want to have a change in scenery once, I would definitely recommend it.

Of course we weren't every where yet and won't be able to visit all the cool places as there are just too many. I think you can visit Ibiza and don't spend too much when you don't go to fancy places every day. We're lucky that my friends dad owns a house here where we could spend our days and we don't need to go out every day. Therefore you can really choose were you want to go. 

Beauty Routine

Beauty Routine

My Beauty routine is pretty much the same every day. I have my few staple brands and stuff that I use every day. 

I start with the YSL Touche Eclat Make Up in B40, then I use the Estée Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage in 03 for my pimples and continue with the Maybelline Anti Age Eye Concealer in 03 for the darkness under my eyes. To set the make up I use the Sheer Powder from MAC in Medium Dark

Eyes / Eyebrows
I shape and color my eyebrows with the L'Oréal Brow Artist Genius Kit in Medium. For my eyes I use the Sephora Eyeshadow Pallet Colorful 5 in Sunrise to Sunset Bronze (I usually use the first three colors for a day make up and the darker ones or a night make up). My favorite Eyeliner is the Eyeko Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. For my lashes I use a Lancôme Primer and the Bourjois Twist Up Mascara (I usually use a lash curler first as well)

I use the Guerlain Terra-cotta Light Bronzer in 03 on my face overall and then I use an Essence Eyeshadow in Choco to contour my cheeks.

I use the MAC Lipliner in Spice to give my lips a bit more volume and then I fill them with the MAC Matte Lipstick in Honeylove

And this is how it looks in the end! (I didn't use an eyeliner here because I wanted to go more natural)

Beyonce x Flash Tattoos

I am a major fan of flash tattoos this summer. If you follow me on social media you'll know because I think they are super cute for summer. They make your outfit just look better without having to wear jewelry to the beach. So, when I heard Beyonce was bringing out a collection of flash tattoos I was over the moon. I love every single design she made but my favorite ones are the lyric tattoos. I think they are very adorable and cute. They come on four sheets and a cool cover design with Queen Bee herself on it. Check out the ads below to see how they look.

Bootea 28 Days Teatox / Review

Living the healthy way is definitely something that is super "in" at the moment and people try everything to get better in shape, healthier, more energetic etc. I admit I love healthy food but there is also nothing better than a pizza, good pasta and desserts. I'm not a sports junky nor do I only eat veggies and proteins but I thought, why not jump on the health wagon for a month. I started a healthier lifestyle about 2 months ago with the want to look better when I go to Ibiza. I've heard of Bootea a long time ago and I always thought of trying it but I never actually did. So the outlook to my holidays in Ibiza I finally decided to do it. Now, most of the people I know did the 14 day challenge but I though, better go hard or go home, right?
It comes in a cute box with two packages in it. The one is the daytime tea and the other the nighttime tea. You drink the daytime tea every day and the nighttime tea every other day, which makes it really easy and not too hard to follow, especially when you are working.

Daytime Tea
The daytime tea smells a lot like a green tea but to be exact it contains the following ingredients: Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger root, Fennel seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves and Nettle leaves.
I really liked the taste of it and it didn't bother me at all to drink it for a whole month straight. It woke me up nicely and I noticed that I didn't need as much coffee as before, which is a definite plus.

Nighttime Tea
The nighttime tea smelled more like peppermint tea but much stronger. The exact ingredients were the following: Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice root, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian roots and Psyllium seeds. On the packaging it said that it might have a laxative effect and I have to admit it is true. It wasn't every time I drank it but most of the time, which was a bit annoying while working but I managed to do it.
I didn't like the taste after a while to be honest. It got really strong and it was harder to drink it but as it was only every other night I was fine.
What I liked about this one is that it definitely seemed like this one is the one that really worked on the weight. (probably because of the laxative effect)

To conclude I'd say I would definitely do it again if it wasn't as expensive. I liked the taste of them. I think the weight loss is only part of the job it does but I definitely feel less bloated and more energetic.
I will continue with drinking regular green tea every morning to avoid going back to masses of coffee again.
I would definitely not recommend it to someone who has an upset stomach because of the laxative effect. This is really a bit annoying.

Ibiza Calling

Ibiza Calling

Ibiza is like the trend destination this summer and as you may know from my Twitter I'm heading there next week. Here are some things I would pack / I am packing. I think a good old playsuit is always really nice and you can wear it all the time. For me simple things are always perfect to pack as I do think that you can always mix them up and make them look better but you do not need to pack too many things. I'm going to make a post about Ibiza must see places, restaurants and clubs when I'm back so this post is more or less to get you guys inspired for your summer destination and help me with my packing planning.
