Sarah travels – Dresden, Germany

This a very picture heavy post, because I’m a bit lazy about writing at the moment. Anyway, Dresden is the city where I was born. What I love about it are all the old historic and mystical looking buildings, the art galleries and the theatres. I’m sure you get what I mean when you look at my photos.

I loved this shop window! I love Lancôme, I love Emma Watson, I love the cute lips; what’s not to love about it?

Have you ever been to Dresden or another German city? xx


Chanel Love…Letters

“Chanel – the new language of love!”

I’m quite sad I only just discovered this great page by Chanel MakeUp Confidential. It would’ve been a nice surprise for Valentine’s Day. You can type a message and the letters will be written in Chanel makeup. You have up to 140 characters (was Twitter involved here somehow?) and when you’ve finished your message, you can send it to your special someone and as many friends as you want. I’ve tried it and it’s addictive! Here’s a message I created:

My Handbag Make-up Essentials

The handbag is one of the most important items in every woman’s life – if you’re a woman, you know what I’m talking about. It contains so many of our things we need daily/hourly/every few minutes: sunglasses, mobile phones, make-up, diaries, purses, basically half of our life (or at least a quarter).

My bag(s) (…I have over 20, call me obsessed!) usually contain(s) my Lulu Guinness mini frame purse and striped umbrella, magazines, at least one book, my phone, jewellery, sunglasses, tissues, my diaries, Oyster card, a sketchbook for little drawings and stories, perfume, my keys, mints and lots of make-up. In this post, however, I want to concentrate on the make-up essentials I carry with me in my bag every day. If I’m in a foreign country, on holidays, I usually also carry a map with me for exploring, and a camera to take beautiful photos of everything and everyone.

My daily make-up essentials are: a small bottle of Vivienne Westwood’s perfume ‘Naughty Alice’, golden eye shadow (L’Oréal Paris), classic ivory Fit me! pressed powder (Maybelline New York), Lèvres Scintiallentes lipgloss 107 (Chanel), Mediterranean Moonlight nail varnish (O.P.I) and Black Sapphire Volume Diva ‘Curve me Sexy’ mascara (Astor). The bag in the photo is my small Chanel 2.55, the best bag in my wardrobe (I loooooove Chanel!).

What are your make-up essentials? Which things do you carry with you in your handbags? And does the ‘Naughty Alice’ bottle somehow remind you of Ladurée? xx
