Nicki Minaj stars in this year H&M's Holiday campaign

Nicky Minaj stars in this year H&M's Holiday campaign film alongside Jesse Williams and John Turturro. The film directed by Johan Renck is a modern take on classic fairytale about an heroic little girl who tracks down the evil brother of Santa Claus to save the Holiday season from his selfishness.


“I love the film's over all empowering message. I love seeing this young girl become the champion that lives in all of us.There's always magic in the air during the Holidays,”
         Nicki Minaj 


“It’s exciting to see our festive designs come to life together with such inspirational talents. 
They definitely added some extra magic to the film and we hope that our customers will love how the fashion is presented throughout the holiday season at H&M,” 
says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director.

Holiday Look Inspiration (Part two)

Here it is with my second Holiday Look inspiration and it is once again a beautiful total look H&M.
I went for black but with a twist. The simple black top thanks to the bell sleeves becomes precious and therefore perfect for the Holidays. I chose to pair It with a faux-leather trousers with front buttons. I like these trousers as they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For me they are an absolute Holiday must-have item! In this case I dressed them up with a pair of glitzy silver ankle boots but they can be worn just as well with a pair of boots or trainers and a comfy sweater.
I hope you liked this look !

Holiday look inspiration (part one)

Holidayseason is here and for me it is truly the most wonderful time of the year! Time to shine and sparkle! So let's shine  with a total look H&M made of a sparkling black long turtleneck jumper dress and a pair of super shiny silver ankle boots. The look is finished off with a pair of pattern thights which give the look a real Holiday feel. It is a cute look which is perfect for the Holidays, wear it to the office Christmas Party or for a romantic Holiday get together.
It is warm but also cozy and super stylish! 
Hope you like my Holiday look and stay tuned for part 2!

Say It with a flower: a Star for you!

Holiday time can only mean one thing Christmas Star time. The poinsettia or also known as Christmas Star is truly the star of the Holidayseason. Thanks to its bright colour star-shaped bracts and lush  green foliage It brings cheer in the house. Poinsettias of course make for some wonderful Christmas room decorations and are very popular among people of all ages.
However what we often don't think is that poinsettias make for great Christmas gifts! A poinsettia given to someone you love is always a beautiful gift and surely much appreciated.
In the run up to Christmas we often forget the real meaning of Christmas which is to spend time with family, friends and loved ones. Let's bring back the original meaning of Christmas for example by visiting a friend or a relative that we haven't seen in a long time and by giving them a Christmas Star as gift. Surely the Christmas Star will be much appreciated as it is not only a symbol of Christmas but thanks its variety and diversity hardly anyone will resist its charm. It is a wonderful and uncomplicated gift to express big feelings in an easy and simple way.
If you are DIY fan why not try to create a tailor-made decoration with the poinsettias and this way create original gifts? The Christmas Star really lends Christmas flair to such new creations.
I am giving you some ideas and inspirations with the handcrafted Christmas decorations and gifts I have created with the beautiful Poinsettias.
The beautiful winter bloomer really offers unlimited possibilities to create personalised gifts. Transform a simple pot into an handmade decorative pot or use a different than usual planter and give someone a truly unique gift!
If you use Poinsettia as cut flowers you can use them to adorn your gifts, to highlight bouquets, table arrangements and vases. You can really create some beautiful  Poinsettia gifts to suit anyone's style and taste thanks to diversity of the plant.

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.
