How to make your Birthday special

Post may contain affiliate links. Disclosure policy here

It is Sunday evening and I finished a fantastic Birthday weekend, actually it was a whole Birthday week. Starting from last Monday until today, I decided to do something special for myself each day leading up to my actual Birthday last Friday – I really had fun with it. As a child we are always so excited about Birthdays, Holidays and Celebrations, as adults this magic is often lost and we just move through those days and on with our lives. But then life consists out of memories and special moments – and it is really up to us what we make of it. So I decided to make this Birthday special –  create good memories and enjoy myself.

Here are some ideas and things I did:

  1. Buy flowers. Not only are they gorgeous to look at and very decorative, they also let us know that we are valued and most important deserve beauty in our lives.
  2. Get yourself a new scented candle. They are relaxing and soothing and give us the feeling of luxury. They make us feel calm and peaceful and can have a positive effect on our mind and mood.
  3. Make a movie night and watch your all time favorites and have snacks and treats or a pizza party.
  4. Share some Prosecco with your friends/ coworkers / clients – as long as it is appropriate in your work environment of course.
  5. Go and buy yourself a present – because you deserve it 🙂
  6. Check into the spa for some serious pampering and time out. It is good to relax and check out from the daily routine to regenerate the body, mind and soul.
  7. Check out a new Restaurant you always wanted to visit. One of my new places this weekend was the Waldorf Astoria Rooftop in Beverly Hills and it exceeded everybody’s expectations. The view is nothing less than spectacular and it is the perfect place to enjoy Los Angeles to it’s fullest.
  8. Have a swanky date with a great girlfriend, great food and great conversations at one of your favorite places in town. My choice for this time was The Ivy on Robertson – you can’t beat the charming french country decor, the good food, great service and of course – the glass of champagne offered to you upon your arrival.
  9. Go for a delicious Sunday Brunch on a Rooftop. My friend took me to The Highlight Room in Hollywood, a lovely place with a Grill that opens at 7am daily, a pool and  a lounge area – and fabulous view of the Hollywood Hills 🙂
  10. And don’t forget to stop and appreciate all the little things in life you like and are important to you – let work be just work for the day and focus on yourself. Create your own happy place and cherish it. It’s your Birthday after all 🙂

Have a great start into the week

Fall Beauty Favorites

1./2./3./4./5./6./7.

Happy Friday!

Here they are, my personal Fall Beauty Favorites!

I love nude and soft colored nails but I found this beautiful, luxurious chocolate color Chanel nail polish  and I feel now is the right time of the year to bring out some stronger, spicier colors to mix things up a little bit.

Red Lips are a classic but not an every day look in my book. I definitely have to be in the mood for it. Now is a good time to experiment with some strong lip colors, holiday season is just around the corner and it is the right time to bring out some glam.

I absolutely love the scents by Maison Margiela, they also have them as candles. All of them are reminders of a certain place and time of the designer. Perfect for a crisp fall morning or a cooler night while snuggling up in a sweater and a blanket with a movie or a good book to read.

Since it gets cooler it is the perfect time to indulge in a bath, I love Jo Malone Bath Oils, right now I am craving the Peonies and Blush Suede scent. For the full luxurious experience, I love the body lotion as well.

For years I have been wearing Chanel No5 Eau Premiere and for some reasons I switched for a while, I guess I have been experimenting but I feel now is the time to bring my all time classic and one of my absolute favorites back.

A facemark is always a good idea. It can be fun, relaxing, healing or nourishing and right now I feel like I need revitalizing. My luxury is this Absolute Precious Cells mask by Lancome.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons, cozy, festive, my birthday is coming up next month and holiday season is around the corner.

Let’s enjoy,

Late Summer Vibes

It has been very warm in LA for the last weeks, it does not feel like summer is thinking about coming to an end soon at all. We shot these pictures earlier today in the beautiful and wild California countryside, the credits go to my super creative husband Dima. I love what we created and I couldn’t wait to show you the results. I got the adorable lemon off the shoulder top from Zaful and I chose white tassel earrings and small round sunglasses to accessorize the look.

Thanks for stopping by,
