H&M Holiday 2014

When I saw these pics from the H&M holiday 2014 collection, it made me very festive. 
The models holding the packages in their hand, the knitwear, the glitz and glam. 
I wish it was already Christmas. It's only 56 days away, so start planning your Christmas already.

In the campaign you can see a lot of knitwear, reds, silver and sparkly clothes. For me it made me instantly happy en feel cosy. 
So I'm definitely ready for Christmas.

Also Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are featuring in this campaign. 
They will perform "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" for the Christmas commercial.

Review + Swatches: Catrice Metallure Lip color "Alluring Pink"

When I saw this Catrice lipstick in Alluring Pink, it immediately catched my eye. 
I really love this packaging. It felt very glamorous for a brand like Catrice.

The packaging is rosé gold with white lines, which looks very nice. It felt something luxury in your hands, but it is still budget. Which I really like. 
For me the lipstick is more a addition to my basic lipstick stash. I also wanted to buy the red lipstick, but had to choose. 
You can wear this lipstick also on a daily base, because it's not a hot pink color.

The lipstick is pink with shimmering details, like you can see in the close-up. It doesn't hold that long, but that is no problem. 
The lipstick cost 3,99 euros.

 I'm really discovering the products from Catrice. 
So you can except more product reviews from this brand in the near future.

Event: Philips Summer Cocktail

Sorry for the lack of updates, but currently I'm going back to school and don't have so much time to blog.

This was an event from in the summer and was held at Summer Josephine's. 
In the summer it's a cocktailbar which I really loved, because it's was an ideal place to held the presentation from the new products from Philips. 
When I arrived, we were immediately invited to drink a cocktail. 
There were different boots where you could checked out the new innovations from Philips: food, beauty and coffee. 
We could taste smoothies, coffee and more.

The products which immediately catched my eye was of course the beauty section.

Philips brings out some new attachments for the VisaPure Advanced. 
One is for the subcutane reflex therapy for the skin and the other one is for tired eyes.

Then you have the products for permanent hair removal. 
I was very curious about these, because I already tried several methods to remove my hair from my bikini line and none worked. 
For waxing I needed help and also tried hair removal by a beauty parlour. 
Philips brings out a new device: the Lumea Compact. It's a smaller format and is also cheaper. 
There are also beautypens to remove the hair from your face.

The Philips Moisture Protect hairdryer measures the temperature from your hair with a sensor.
The temperature automatically will be reduced when the hair will be to warm. 
The same with the straightener.


Then you have also the Airstyler, a brush who blows dry air and where you can style your hair.

Philips also brushes for oral care. The Sonicare Diamond Clean is for whitening and plaque removal. 
It removes 5x more plaque than a normal toothbrush. 
For charging you put the toothbrush in a glass (like you can see in the picture). 
Then there is the Airfloss. It uses pressurized air and microdroplets to clean the spaces between your theeth.

This is a non-beauty product which catches my eye: the Saeco GranBaristo Avanti. 
It's a coffee which uses Bluethooth technologie. 
Trough the Saeco Avanti-app you can make your own personalized coffee. 
An example: when you come home and you sit in your care, you take your iPhone or iPad, set your preferences and the coffee will be made.

Thank you Philips for the invite! It was a wonderful event!
