May Favorites: Beauty & Fashion

I can’t believe it is June already. May has been such a chaotic, hectic month that went by so fast for me. I was in London (again) and buried in loads of freelance work projects (again and again and again). Even though I was super busy with work & travels, I still found time to fall in love with some beauty essentials.

So here’s the breakdown:

The Ordinary 100% cold pressed Marula Oil 

I really love this oil! I have very dry & dehydrated skin and at night I love to bathe myself in this oil! Not only does it works wonders on your hair, but it is also a dream to use in your hair ends as a nourishing hair oil or on any other part of your body.

Bioderma Sensibio Mask

Not gonna lie, about 50% of my beauty products are Bioderma and this mask is definitely one of my all-time favorites. It’s the perfect texture to put on a bit before going to bed and just leave it one. My skin really loves it and soaks the product up like a sponge! It is also really nice as a travel mask, as it is almost clear when applied in a thinner layer. Yes, I am that “face mask on the plane”-type of person.

It Cosmetics CC Cream 

The finish of the CC cream is just beautiful, with its instant glow and great coverage it gives the perfect skin finish.  It’s definitely not a matte finish, but personally, I do love a nice glow. With my pale skin, I mostly use the shade fair, but recently with my fake tan on I use the tiny bit darker version in light.

Chanel Rouge Coco Marie 403 und Sari Doré 414 

Every girl should own a Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick, or 4 if you ask me. It’s my favorite formula to just swipe on.  The Rouge Coco is a really moisturizing product, which doesn’t dry your lips out. My favorite shades are Marie 403 (duh!) and the perfect summer peach Sari Doré 414.

Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat 

Once you start using warm shades on your eyes, there is no going back. This tiny Naked Petite Heat palette is perfect for traveling or any other occasion.

& Other Stories Purse (sold out, similar here)

This purse and I are a match made in heaven. For years I tried hunting it down on eBay after it being sold out after the release. This year, & Other Stories brought the purse back and I bought it without thinking twice. Since then, I haven’t worn a different purse and to be honest I am not thinking to change that this summer.

Sonnenbrille  (similar here, Celine here)

Once the Celine Edge sunglasses were sold out, I realized that I really wanted them. Anyone else been in that situation before? It’s the worst. I wasn’t willing to spend double or even triple the price of an already expensive pair on the last remaining pairs on eBay. But then I found an almost identical one on Amazon. It is a little bigger than the Celine pair and I kinda like it more.


I am obsessed with scrunchies. I grew up with them in my hair and I’m so happy the had their deserved comeback! Currently, my favorite one is a leopard print one. It adds the perfect touch to a boring messy bun!

I hope you have a wonderful June! Let’s rock this new month!!!
