I am sitting on a train as I type this, yes, I am leaving snowy Cologne behind and heading over to Amsterdam for the weekend. I had initially thought I’d stay indoors huddled up, and catch up on the blog, read, and couch potato my way through the weekend; but let’s face it, it’s not very often that I get an entire weekend free to myself, open to all possibilities. Time to do with as I please, an easy train ride to some of the most exciting cities of the world literally just at my doorstep, and so much of the world I have yet to see. So, I’m plucking up my grit, shaking out of my comfy sweatpants, and going exploring on my own. And in the same spirit of freedom and inspiration, I thought it might be apt to share with you my latest obsession in the fragrance department – an Unnamed bottle from an insouciant Swedish brand (a little north of where I am heading) Byredo.

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s introduction [here] to RMK’s Spring 2017 Color Change Collection. It’s really an interesting spin on girlie pinks and granny browns, juxtaposing the two for very avant garde yet wearable modern effects! Continuing on my coverage of the 30-piece collection, today I’d like to introduce you to their fabulous lip and nail offerings!

Greetings from Germany!! I’m on my first business trip of the year, and it’s going to be a long one… 2 whole weeks up here in Cologne. I was hoping to be able to get this review out sooner, but I had limited time and wanted to shore up some pictures so I can continue working on more posts while I’m away from home. Thank you for reading and commenting on the past 2 posts on this Chanel Coco Codes Collection, I loved hearing your thoughts on the pieces, it is this interaction that keeps me grounded. As promised, I have a few more pieces from this Spring / Summer 2017 collection that I’d like to share with you today!

If you (like me) missed having a new Chanel red polish for the holidays, you will most likely enjoy the offering this Spring 2017. I am always excited by a Chanel red polish because they are such classics. But things get interesting with a transformative black top coat, and here is a closer look at the 2 that I picked up from the Chanel Coco Codes Collection!

Happy New Year my friends! I hope the holiday season had been fruitful and rewarding for you. I’m really looking forward to 2017, and it is my sincerest wish for you to enjoy abundant blessings in the coming days – may your hearts be full, and your lives be filled with your hearts’ desires!
The new year marks a fresh start, and this year I’m hoping to take a new approach with my skincare. Last year, I battled with the onset of adult acne, and after several frustrated attempts to get things under control myself, I finally decided to engage professional help. Following the advice of Dr Gerard Ee at The Clifford Clinic, I decided to cut back on all the products that I was loading my skin with. More isn’t always better! Instead, I am now on a minimalist routine, with an emphasis on oil-free, simply-formulated products with maximum efficiency. And I am finally at a place where I am comfortable enough to declare my skin is better than ever! Of course, I still encounter the occasional woe, and for whatever ails that strike, I add on targeted solutions such as the new Bobbi Brown Remedies Collection.
