Coquettes - chic à la francaise

Oh, I fell in love
Yes, I was a fool
For paris can be so beautifully cruel
Paris is just a gay coquette who wants to love and then forget
Stranger beware
, there’s love in the air

Just look and see what happened to me under paris skies
Watch what you do, the same thing can happen to you


Lyrics by Andy Williams

This look is a collaboration project with Tabatha. If you don't know her beautyful blog by now, check it out, it is amazing. Tabatha and I share a vivid love for France and Paris in general so we decided to team up and be creative togehther. Alltough we could not do the fotoshoot together I had so much fun working on the Coquettes theme and I hope that we will team up again in the future. Thank you so much Tabatha for being my partner in crime!

I chose queen Marie Antoinette as an inspiration because she was born in Austria and she had incredible style and chic, she loved hair and makeup and of course shoes. I wish I could have had my pictures taken in Versailles, the castle of my dreams.

January 2011 Favourites

Meine Januarfavoriten sind sehr unspektakulär. Nach langer und schmerzhafter Überlegung habe ich beschlossen meine Diorshow Iconic Mascara zu entsorgen und nicht mehr nachzukaufen. Dior testet an Tieren und obwohl diese Mascara für mich der Heilige Gral war, musste ich eine andere Wimperntusche finden. Also habe ich mich schweren Herzens in die Drogerie aufgemacht und dann meine neue Liebe die Essence Multi Action Mascara gefunden.

My Janurary favourites are quite unspectacular. I finally decided to toss my Diorshow Iconic Mascara for Dior is known to test on animals. This decision was a hard one, because I do not want to support cosmetic companies that test on animals on the one hand, but on the other hand this mascara was the one for me. So I rushed out to the drugstore and got the infamous Multi Action Mascara by Essence and instantly fell in love (and saved quite a bit of money).


Hier nun meine Favoriten gesammelt:
Here are my favourites all together:
  • MAC Caviar Dreams Quad
  • MAC Baby Sparks Dazzleglass (mein neues, das alte habe ich diesen Monat aufgebraucht/this is my new one, I used up one in January)
  • MAC I get no kick Eye Khol
  • Manhattan Dip Eyeliner Waterproof (zurück zu den Schminkanfängen/ finally I got back to basic)
  • MUFE Arist Intense Lipstick No. 36
  • Essie Demure Vixen
  • Dior Midnight Poison (Das Parfum wird auch aufgebraucht und nicht mehr nachgekauft/ I'm using this one up to get rid of the rest of my Dior stuff)
Im Februar freue ich mich auf den Geburtstag meines Bruders, die Semesterferien und auf die neuen Kissable Lip Colours von MAC.

In February I'm looking forward to my brother's birtday, the semester break and to trying out the new Kissable lip Colours by MAC.

Pirates Treasures - Chanel Spring 2011 (and a giveaway)

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.

Wahrscheinlich eine sehr ungewöhnliche Art die neue Chanel-Kollektion auf dem Blog vorzustellen, aber bei Black Pearl fällt mit in erster Linie immer das Geisterschiff aus dem Pirates of the Carribean Film ein. Heute war ich eine glückliche Piratin, denn ich bekam endlich meine lang ersehnte Beute - die Chanel Frühlingskollektion 2011.

This is a extraordinary way to introduce the new Chanel collection on my blog but when I think of Black Pearl I think of the ghost ship in the movie pirates of the carribean. Today I felt like a lucky pirate indeed when I finally got my Chanel spring collection.


Ausgesucht habe ich mir die Ombres Perlées de Chanel und Chanel Le Vernis Black Pearl

This is what I got: Ombres Perlées de Chanel and Chanel Le Vernis Black Pearl


Und nachdem es nur halb so viel Freude macht, Sachen für sich selbst zu kaufen, habe ich den Black Pearl zweimal mitgenommen und werde einen davon an meine Leser verlosen.

Shopping is fun, but it is even more fun when you buy cosmetics for your dear blog followers. I bought two bottles of Black Pearl and will give one away to you.

Looot! :)


Wie könnt ihr mitmachen?
Jeder Leser meines Blogs kann mitmachen. Selbstverständlich können auch neue Leser mitmachen. Schreibt einen Kommentar unter diesen Blogpost und sagt mir welchen Piratennamen ihr euch selbst geben würdet, wenn ihr Kapitän der Black Pearl sein könntet.
Mitmachen könnt ihr bis zum 01. Februar 2011. Um Mitternacht ist Einsendeschluss, dann läuft das Geisterschiff aus dem Hafen aus der Gewinner mithilfe von Random.org ermittelt.

How can you win?
The Giveaway is open worldwide - I would feel very lucky if one of my international readers would win this time. You must be e follower of my blog. Please write a comment below this blog post and tell me the pirate name you would pick for yourself if you could be the capitain of the black pearl.
Please enter until the 1st of February 2011 midnight, I will pick the winner using random.org.

Viel Glück!
Good luck!

Fly

What is it like? You ask me, my dear
Will there be fairies or things to fear?
For fairies sake I'd say you better come with me
So soon you'll see
Now up and down it goes and round
Round and round and round

Praise my cleverness
They all follow me
All praise to innocence
That's everything it needs
Fly in
Fly out
They'll leave it all behind

No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
It's make believe
Make believe

Lyrics by Blind Guardian

Masquerade

My only friend was solitude
And only darkness seemed to care
So I forged this dreadful mask
That i am cursed to wear

Now everyday it's staring at me
Hanging from the wall
"Without me you are useless"
"Without me you will fall"

I see it clearly now - The end
It's time to say goodbye my friend
I have to live as who I'd be
Without a mask protecting me
