Lois Opoku blue jacket ootd lisforlois
A couple of weeks back I enjoyed a cocktail evening with Jil Sander Navy. For the occasion I wore my midi-length figure hugging H&M Trend dress paired with a cobalt blue biker jacket and the perfect black bucket bag from Berlin based Designer Nina and her label Zookie. The is suede leather amazing.
Jil Sander Navy is very modern, clean cuts and silhouettes; the color scheme very simple: navy, bold green, black & white graphics and the occasional signal color orange as a subtle highlight. The store concept is a mirror of the Jil Sander philosophy. Jil Sander Navy reminds me a lot of COS but much more high end and quality. I was surprisingly very much into the new collection and I nearly picked the loafer high-heels to come home with me. The collection is very unlike me and what I'd usually wear. I prefer anything tailored at the waist, since that is what looks good on me.
But that's fun in fashion, being able to try new stuff out. Don't let yourself be defined by what's been, what you are accustomed to or people's idea of who and what you are. Be brave enough to try new things, new styles.

lois opoku lisforlois x hella nike werunberlin fitness
Ok girls, 20th of June is coming closer! You know what that means, it means Nike #werunberlin 10k run is just around the corner! I'm still sore from my training session on Friday with Nike and trust me, my thighs still feel very heavy. As the day get closer I get more anxious, nervous and super excited. I get a little worried that I won't make the 10k, but I feel like I've got my asthma under control at the moment and that each time I go for a run, my breathing gets better.  Nike has so many surprises lined up for us girls and teamed up with many amazing sponsors this year, such as Marina Hoermanseder who designed the finishers gift or hella who'll make sure to keep us hydrated.

Time is a funny thing.
Looking at the time stamp on my latest post. 35 days ago... wow. This is the longest time I've gone without blogging. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen I'm still attending events, still embarking on adventures and little stories, so still a lot of content to blog about. The blank space that has been growing and stretching out uncontrollably here as if exponential, you see, was not due to lack of content. But rather to a sense of my own unhappiness, ever growing dissatisfaction, discontent and finally disaffection with this space.
When there is no progress, no growth (not in terms of followers but rather self growth and in terms quality), no development I feel at unease. Yet time is ticking (way too fast), this space is getting older but it's not growing up. It feels like it's staying an infant child forever, stuck in one developing stage, impossible to advance.
That's what gets me.

Lumia in granada lisforlois
Hey guys!
I'm finally sharing my pictures from my very short but sweet trip to Granada. It was a much needed getaway to the country side of Spain Andalusia. I was lucky enough to be Microsoft's (and yet again a Nokia) guest for their #lumiaingranada trip. I'm pretty sure you've been wondering what it was all about, since I have been bombarding you with tumblr-esque pictures on my Insta Feed (@LisforLOIS).
Amongst digital influencers - from mobile photographers (yes, that is a thing!), instagramers and bloggers - from different countries I had the chance to discover Granada through the Lumia 930 mobile. But that wasn't all.

douglas beauty event lisforlois
Last week I had a wonderful time during my short trip to Hamburg, which allowed me to take a break from uni studies and some emotional stress. The reason for my short less-than-24h- trip was an invitation from Douglas allowing me to be part of their exclusive launch celebrations for their very first and very own Make Up line, which started with a blogger breakfast and finally getting to know the faces behind the various mails and the pretty amazing Douglas team.
If you're from Europe there is no way you don't know Douglas. If you don't, Douglas is pretty much your destination for High End products from Chanel to Lancome, Estée Lauder to M.A.C., Benefit Cosmetics and Co. It's the only place I know of to go to when looking for good Make Up and I'm ready to splurge a bit. It's also the only place I shop for beauty presents. Until recently Douglas only sold other brands, for the first time you'll be able to buy their own Make Up line.

We started with a delicious breakfast with all the girls and we which really turned into a beautiful relaxed event, that didn't get boring and we got to do what bloggers love and do best: play with make up and Instagram,Instagram, Instagram! from a greatly lit location. #bestselfielight everrr!

So here's what you've been waiting for, let's talk Make Up!
