BERLINALE WITH L'OREAL PARIS - GETTING READY IN MY HOTEL ZOO ROOM

Loreal Berlinale get ready lisforlois
Hey Guys,

It happened! It was my first time at Berlinale (ok let's not count that one time I went to Berlinale as part of my school curriculum in what must have been 6th grade and I actually saw a movie.) all thanks to L'Oreal Paris. The reason I was attending Berlinale was because of L'Oreal Paris opening of The Atelier, a special space dedicated to showcasing L'Oreal Paris new products in . During the Berlinale The Atelier opened its doors to public allowing everyone to discover their latest products in a fun way. You could get your hair done and try out their new one-day-sprays (pastell pink, blue and grey are my fav!) inspired by the Instagram-Culture or get a full on make up glow with all their latest releases or test out their super cool app called MakeUp Guru (they had a few iPads installed around the space), which has been on the market for at least more than a year now. It basically lets you test out their looks on your complexion prior to buying the products and kind of works like a snapchat filter.

Hey Guys,

I'm back with my final look from Fashion Week. Unfortunately I ended picking up my brother from hospital instead of running around my last 2 shows because he had an accident, so I didn't actually get to wear my last look to Berlin Fashion Week. But since I had been looking forward to this look the entire week and it had been one of my very few planned looks I had to shoot this look anyway afterwards as I was and have been dying to share this one with you. It's super dark for a typical "me" look. I usually go with colorful choices, but sometimes, every now and then I feel like exploring my dark side.

BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 3 - BRIGHT BLUE & PROENZA SCHOULER

Hey Guys,

Finally sharing my 3rd Berlin Fashion Week look. I changed it a little from how I wore it during my shows, because I was in a rush that morning and picked the first thing that I could grab. I changed from black leather pants and sneakers into these fun pants Storets paired with fishnet socks and patent leather pumps (on sale for less than 20€) - my fav combination rn! I can't get over my new Proenza Schouler bag and you'll probably seeing a lot on this blog. If you want I can write up a little review about this bag and some tips about buying your first designer bag.
Let me know what you think about my look. Are you into bright colored coats for winter?

BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 2 - THE PUFFER JACKET ON BOMBER

Hey Guys,

Puff jackets seem to everywhere ever since the red jacket from Balenciaga emerged on their runway and ad campaign - Balenciaga basically declared them the IT fashion statement piece of the season. I too have fallen for the trend even though Grace kept stopping me from buying them - literally. She made me hand the Zara one I spotted back. (Tipp: Zara is always quick to copy fashion trends, styles and designer It pieces. If you can't afford the real deal, take the copy. After all they say "Fake it til you make." -  Although personally I'm not a big advocate for copycats.) Thank god for Grace, because a little later I found the perfect one at Bershka for 16€!
