MIR WELLE BLEIWE WAT MIR SIN (We love what we do ..)

Danny Shanahan - New York Times

DIER HUTT SCHEIN HOER! (Your mane event ..)

There is nothing "fishy" about this. As a general rule, the products we feature on the blog were all tested by us and we recommend them without reservation.

In most instances we stay away from endorsing dietary supplements due to the unregulated nature of the market but we gladly break our own rule for this phenomenal product: VIVISCAL® by Lifes2good Natural Healthcare

How many times have you heard the expression, your hair is your crown and glory? As you all know, hair follicles change as we (man or woman) get older. The main culprits are decades of harsh chemical processes (constant shampooing, straightening treatments, blow-drying, and the overuse of products) hormonal changes or genetic inheritance.

VIVISCAL® EXTRA STRENGTH hair nutrient tablets, a Finnish product, has gained a cult following among hairdressers, dermatologists and loyal customers (count us among them). Read some of the many reviews in Vogue, InStyle, Redbooketc.

Natural and gluten free (a blend of fish proteins, horsetail extract and Vitamin C), the vitamins should be taken twice daily. All hype aside, your hair does indeed look shinier and is less thinning after approximately six months of regular use.

Note – VIVISCAL is not a miracle product but a supplement. A nutritious diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids and a balanced lifestyle are also contributing factors to to the wellness of your hair.

In the US, buy VIVISCAL® online or find it at your local drugstore. Retail price $49.99 for 30 day supply (60 tablets)

VIVISCAL® also offers a shampoo and assorted products (not tested by us or on animals) to maintain the beauty of your hair. Click on the links and picture for additional information.

AER LEPSEN AM WANTER (Lip service ..)

The below zero temperatures and windy conditions can play a number on your lips in winter. Since the skin on your lips is much thinner and more fragile than the rest of your face, it is also prone to dehydration.

Chapped lips don’t look good on anyone and it is easier to prevent them than to cure them. We recommend that you winterize your lips with Brew from Skincando.

Brew Luxe is hands-down THE BEST lip moisturizer we have found. The men in our office are so fond of it that they use it year-round.

This balm is easy to layer under your lipstick, it has a smooth texture (not shiny or slick since Brew contains no petroleum: petroleum and petroleum-based products dry out your skin even more), has no parabens (preservatives in cosmetics), is made from all natural products (essential oil myrrh, cocoa and shea butter..) and has a light but pleasant black licorice (anise) smell. 

Brew "wild lip balm" is handcrafted in small batches in Washington DC. It retails for a reasonable $15 - check out the Skincando e-shop  (international shipping available)

KUCK EMOL (All about eyes ..)

Our quest for the perfect eye liner is never ending. From crayons to liquids, powder or gels, we have road tested most of them, the vast majority with mixed results. We finally found our holy grail: Guerlain Khol Kajal in Black Frida.

It glides on smoothly, is highly pigmented, virtually error proof (you create a line in one quick move) and best of all it is a mineral eyeliner that will be gentle even for contact lens wearers. Subtle drama for your eyes - a timeless look.

For a more intense evening look, retrace along your lash line to create a defined line. Add some mascara, et voilà, you are all set.

Part of the Guerlain Terracotta line, it was first issued in 2009 in limited edition, and has since been re-launched. You can find this cone shaped mineral stick at Sephora or at any authorized Guerlain retailer (f.ex. Parfumerie IciParis XL (Luxembourg), Marionnaud, etc.)

STEMMT DAT? (Do you agree? ..)

In a survey conducted by a French marketing company, Presence Mystery Shopping, Luxembourg’s Avenue de la Liberte came in second for world's best shopping street. In comparison, France's famed Champs Elysees ranked a pitiful 16th and the venerable Saks Fifth Avenue in New York barely made it to 26th place. Thoughts?

WAT EIS NACH GEFAELLT! (things we like – part 2 ..)


It will come as no surprise that we are huge fans of TOMS, a footwear company with a humanitarian bent. TOMS was founded on a simple premise:  For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One.

Very popular in the US, less known in Europe, TOMS shoes are casual, comfortable and come in a large array of colors and materials. Look good while doing good.

Prices start at $54 for the basic canvas shoes. Don’t miss their limited edition fashion collaborations with various artists and designers.

GUDDE MOIEN! (Hello in Luxembourgeois ..)

Welcome to my blog where you will find fashion news, great global shopping links, tried-and-true favorites and rare finds from world trips.
I hope to inspire you and be a small part of your personal journey.

KENNEN MIER EIS?  (Do I know you?)

I was born in Luxembourg; Life, Love and work have taken me all over the globe (France, Italy, England, US, India to name a few).

From time to time, I’ll invite guest editors; showcase in-the-know colleagues and style makers or feature the occasional family member giving their own perspective and unique view.

I co-founded TIMELESS PIECES celebrating artistry and multiculturism. I am constantly inspired by craftsmanship, the love of the arts and the telling of a storing that make an every day object “timeless” and “collectible”.

I believe that you collect experiences, mix what you love, break the rules and live life well.

Come with me on a global tour, off the beaten path, I’ll introduce you to artists, tastemakers and have you rediscover simple pleasures in your own backyard.
Enjoy the ride.
