Love My Scrub

Happy Monday!

We had the best weather here this weekend and I spent time with my horse outside, did new outfit shots and took the doggies on a little road trip.

The air is dry in California and my skin gets irritated easily and needs exfoliated frequently to keep it soft and glowing.

I got this new scrub that I would like to share with you. I use it especially in the morning – it is made from Coffee beans and it smells so good, like freshly brewed Espresso.

Originally this scrub is for the body but I used it on my face as well – I just use a small amount, the particles are quite effective exfoliants. For the excess coffee particles you can simply use a bathtub drain protector.

I love the fact that this is a hand made, natural and organic product with no harsh chemicals. And it leaves my skin soft and with no greasy or oily residue afterwards. I just use regular moisturizer and I am ready to go.

Thanks to Love my Scrub, for sponsoring this post.

NYFW – The Show

The actual show I was invited to see was the Christian Siriano’s Spring Summer 2018 collection. The show was held at the Pier 59 Studios – and the first ones at the venue were of course the photographers and press to get the best spot for their pictures. Slowly but surely the who is who in fashion arrived, from fashion editors, celebrity stylists, buyers, bloggers etc… and of course – celebrities. You actually barely see them because the minute they arrive they are covered by Cameras and Photographers.

One of the most interesting things to me was the “Vision Board” – a place backstage where all the inspirations, colors, visions and fabrics for the collection are displayed. Just by looking at it you can get a feeling and a sense of what you are about to see. And when the actual show starts you immediately understand where the designer is coming from and what his idea behind it has been. For me this is where fashion becomes an art form.

The show was amazing and here are my personal picks and favorites for you. For the full coverage of the  collection you can visit Vogue and see all the outfits.

All in all it was an amazing experience and very inspiring on so many levels. The whole process of a fashion show was not unfamiliar to me because of my time of being a model in the 90ies. Nowadays I am most fascinated by the creativity, artistry and professionalism of the whole industry itself and all it’s aspects.
