Renowned financial analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed some interesting details about the iPhone 6S. Besides the usual speed and camera upgrades we will also get a new color option: Rose Gold. A full redesign of the iPhone is expected to be unveiled in 2016.
Starting this week, Chanel once again takes up summer residence at the private villa La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez. Each year House creates different décor settings, a showcase for its Ready-to-Wear, accessories, watches and fine jewellery collections. This season, the interior design tends towards clean lines and monochrome. Each room is painted in a single shade: navy blue, burgundy, pink nude and gold. Only a few walls are heightened with sections of floral wallpaper. The glass and chrome furniture in colours to match each room is modern and minimal.
Last week I spent some time in Maastricht, a wonderful city in the Netherlands which is close to my hometown Aachen. As we strolled the streets, we took these pictures that I wanted to show you today:
Shoes: Rag & Bone
Handbag: Hermès Birkin Bag (size 35)
Jewelry: Dior & Hermès
Today´s blog entry is a very baby-related one, but since my life is all about my little baby girl these days, I would like to share some insight on what products my little one and me favor:
It was just a matter of time, but now it is official: Chanel will increase the prices for its Handbags about 30% in Europe. The move is meant to streamline the pricing in Europe and China. Classics like the 11.12, 2.55 and Boy Bag will see the price increases on April 8, while the rest of Chanels product range will receive the new prices till the end of the year. But thats not the only bad news:
Last weekend was so sunny and warm that we took the chance and shot these pictures. As you can see, I am very yet another hat by Maison Michel. The fabulous french fashion label is owned by Chanel and specializes in hatwear and hair accessoiries. My favorite models are “Virginie” (which I own in a nice bordeaux color) and “Henrietta” which is pictured above.

after a two-month-long outfit break, I am finally back with a new look! I still have some pounds to shed and I am absolutely not comfortable with the extra weight. But I am starting my regular workout sometime next week and I am confident that I will slowly get back to my pre-baby body…

My husband and me recently took a three-day shopping trip to Paris and decided to treat ourselves to a special accomodation.
The Shangri-La Hotel is a 5-star belle-époque palace with the absolute best views of the Eiffel Tower and it was once the home of Napoleon’s grand-nephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, who lived here until his death in 1924. For the hotel opening in 2010 every small detail of Prince Bonaparte’s home has been meticulously restored which makes you feel like visiting royalty. I love hotels that are authentic in their design, and like the Mercer Hotel in Barcelona, which I visited last May, the Shangri-La is a perfect example of a hotel that honors its building’s history.
Now I know what was behind the mysterious wedding invitation that Dior sent me a few weeks back: The presentation of the new Miss Dior Spot. The beautiful Côte d’Azur serves as the setting of the clip, which sees Natalie Portman portray a young woman about to tie the knot.
I´d like to thank you for your kind words, messages and sweet gifts that have reached me within the past week. Me and the little one are now at home and slowly getting used to our new life together. While I am currently very busy with nursing and taking care of the baby, things on the blog will hopefully be back to normal in a few weeks :-)
In regards to our current weather, it might seem as if spring is still many weeks away. But, if you´re a makeup lover like me, I am sure that you will get into spring fever with french maison Dior´s new Kingdom of Colors makeup look:
… does it? These past few days have been such a major struggle that I wish for nothing more than this sweet little baby to come out of my belly and this maternity to be over. Ever since last Wednesday, I suddenly felt a huge pain in my lower back and pelvis due to the pressure that comes from my dropping belly and the baby´s weight. I am not exaggerating when I say that I haven´t slept in over five days, a situation that leads me (a usually very open-minded & friendly person and a positive thinker) to be in the worst mood ever, disliking everyone and everything around me and crying whenever I get the chance! Well, now I know why sleep deprivation is a method of torture…
However, until I am able to shoot another outfit for you guys, I thought it would be nice make another baby- and pregnancy-related blog entry:
It may still be wintertime, and I haven´t seen any snow yet, french maison Chanel surprises us with a bloomy and fresh makeup look for spring:
