80's inspirations, music and product reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys I'm back with lots of news and inspirations, it's a long weekend for me, so I've more time to do something for my blog site:-)

Now let me show you my favorite sun protect brand (which I normally choose each year:-)):

HAWAIIAN TROPIC!!! - THE BEST ONE FOR TROPICAL FEELINGS:-)


(These collages I made with pics from the owners website: http://www.hawaiian-tropic.de, http://www.hawaiian-tropic.co.uk/, http://www.hawaiiantropic.com/, http://www.hawaiiantropic.es/ and from the internet - they didn't belong me!)


At the moment I am using the HAWAIIAN Tropic PROTECTIVE Sun Lotion SPF/UVB 15 with vitamins C & E and which is very water resistant and smells soooooooooooooooo good (think that it smells a little bit like papaya and cocos and tahiti - I can't describe it really much, it's a very special summer holiday smell for me!!!) I would recommend it to all of you, which have also such a light skin as I've. My mum also uses this brand but she normally buys the Dry Oil Protection.

LAPP & FAO The brand with nice packed and highquality products!!!

I've tested some products (three products:-)) from LAPP & FAO in the past and I must say that they are really fantastic in smell and taste!!!:

1. LAPP & FAO  Misses Vanilla Sirup/Syrup with fine bourbon vanille 200ml (bottle:-)):

(These pictures and the whole collage is mine!!!)

I first tried these syrup one week ago and I must say that it really tastes good:-) You can give the syrup into your coffee, cappucino, baked goods, desserts (like ice cream), soda/club water (vanilla water) or as I have done into a tea (homemade ice tea).

For my ice tea I've put two tea sachets (Meßmer Premium Waldbeere) into my glass tea pot (yea my pot is made of glass), I put one thin sliced lime into my glass tea strainer and I think two or three large spoons of the LAPP & FAO Misses Vanilla Syrup and douse it with hot water. My pot size is 1.5 - 2liter. And after three hours I've tasted my homemade ice tea and I was fully amazed about the fantastic flavour:-)

The syrup costs 6 € (5,95€).

2. LAPP & FAO Sunny Island Cake - Orangenkuchen/Orange cake mit/with mallorquinischen Orangen/ oranges from mallorca 150g :

The pic's and the whole collage belong to me!!!
 (I'm so sorry that I've didn't put this cake a little bit more nice on my lovely small glass plate but the cake is sooooo fresh and soft that it's really hard to take it into one positon on the plate:-))

Yeah this small cake or as I would say "cakey" (it's my own word for small cakes:-)) is made with fresh oranges and lemons from mallorca and an orange syrup. When I've opened the jar a nice light fresh aromatic smell cames out, and after I've tasted the first spoon (yes I eat it with a spoon because as I sayed some senteces ago, these cake is really soft!!!) I was totally amazed about it, you really smell the oranges and lemons but I didn't really smell the syrup maybe because the oranges are so aromatic, I don't know.

The consistence of this really good baked cake is a little bit weet, soft and sticky (the syrup!!!) so I use a spoon for it.

When I was in Menorca especially in Mao/Mahon and Arenal D'Castell I tried some sweet treats, yeah I know that it isn't Mallorca but the sweets are the same I think. The cake reminds me automatically on my holidays on the balearic island:-) I would buy maybe more, as an gift for one my family member or my friends.

It's a really quality and I'm sure with love made good and tastes fantastic!

The cake costs 7€ (6,95€).

3. LAPP & FAO Tahiti Dream Trinkchocolade aus Criollo Kakao mit Bourbon Vanille / drink chocolate made from criollo cacao with bourbon vanille 100g.

I didn't have tried it until yet, because it was such a nice weather and I drink chocolate only if the wheather isn't really nice or if it's cold outside.

But I will put a further post about the LAPP & FAO Tahiti Dream Trinkchocolade with a nice recipe in the next time on my blog.

Here I've a pic from the website of LAPP & FAO (which is on the Bremer Feinkost website where you can buy the products.)

The drink chocolate costs 8€ (7,95€).

My further product preview - CATHERINE NAIL COLLECTION

I reseved some week ago a nice small package from CATHERIN N.C. and want to thank them again for this nice gift:-)

Yea I get two nail polishes (Colour: 605/pink, 507/coral red with shimmer), Nailcare Butter "to go", Versiegelungslack, Lip Stick (it's a red lip stick - which I really like because I love red lips:-) Nr. 507), Lip Gloss (a pinky ones Nr. 604)

Here is a collage which I've made with my pics to show you how cute the products are:


(All pics are mine - they belong me!)

Oh yea I also reseved a small booklet from the CATHERINE N.C. Brand:-)

1. Let me tell you that I didn't tried all products until yet ( I now that I should post something that I've done but sometimes I didn't wan't to put one all colours each day or sometimes I didn't have selfmade pic's from my hands  - which are not so nice at the moment:-()

But I have tried one week the Nail Butter and I must say it's a great idea for all of you who didn't wan't to buy a Dior Apricot Creme which is an expensive nail care product or who didn't get the chance to buy the BIO-H-TIN nail cream PLUS from Pfleger (which is my high favorite for nails!!!). The Nailbutter from CATHERINE is really soft and smells not so intensively (as for exemple the Nail Butter from Burt's Bees with Lemon which highly smells like lemons - but I like/buy it also :-)) and really helps dry parts of your nails to hydrate and give a small nutrition to your finger nails. I would recommend it.

The pinky lip gloss from CATHERINE is an amazing colour and it also doesn't gets off too early from your lips  - so it stays a long time on the right position on your lips:-) I love it - it's my fav at the moment.

The Versiegelungslack is really useful for light colours nail polishes but if you wear darker once you should use another one because I think that the colour gets really hard to remove with a nail polish remover afer you have put on the V.lack. But the positive point is that the colour doesn't split and that the Versiegelungslack really protect the colour.

The two nail polishes and the lip stick are my next testers but until now I haven't try them out, I hope I will do it in some days:-)

But I'm sorry the pink once (nail polish) I've tested on my feets and the colour is really 80's  - I love it and it also really stays a long time and didn't split I also didn't use the V.lack so you see that the polishes from CATHERINE are also really worth to buy because you didn't have to remove each week twice your colour from your fingers or feets.

The 80's inspiration of this week:-)

Hi I'm back, I hope that you've had also such a great weekend as I had:-) and I wish all who are reading my posts a nice week, temperature is climbing and the sun is shinning so what could be better as to go for a trip to the nearest beach??? Yeah, I know that this idea is for the most of us not possible at the moment, because for example I've the nearest in Spain or Italia, and that's far away if you aren't driving with the plain:-) O.K. so let me show you my fav pieces of this week, my latest fav songs and my latest video which I wanna show you the next days (I'm sorry - it isn't finished yet, but it will be in one day - I hope so:-)) :

My WEEK!!!

Hi,

I'm back with a few new things & inspirations:-)

Here you'll see a collage about my fav pieces of this may-week (7-13 may 2012):


Yea Fiji Water is sooooooooooooooo amazing:-), I've drank this water also in N.Y. and it's so energizing!!! Yes, it's a normal high quality water but that these one is more than this I can't believe until now (it's the best one that I've ever choose!!! - I will buy one next time, maybe soon, because if I'm feel that I will become a little more tired or if I'll get some headache - FIJI really helps to keep you fit in body & mind!!!

And the other one fav of this week is - ALBRECHTS PATISSERIE - Cake in the WECK-Glass Jar:
This pic is also my - All photos belongs to me, the other ones are from the Albrechts Patisserie Website (Postcards): http://shop.albrechts-patisserie.de/

Yesterday, it was the 13, may and it was motherday:-) I have made the breakfast for my mum (as I do this nice service each year:-)) and this year it was more special because I've had three nice Cakes from the high quality ALBRECHTS PATISSERIE - BERLIN/GERMANY!!!

Here is the list of my three cakes (yummy:-)):

1. Schokoladenkuchen im Glas groß/klein 6,40/4,40 (Chocolate cake big/small)
2. Haselnusskuchen im Glas groß/klein 6,40/4,40      (Hazelnut cake big/small)
3. Karottenkuchen im Glas groß/klein 6,40/4,40        (Carot cake big/small)

First let me tell you that each cake was special & with love made (I'm sure) but let me say the minus/negative at first, the carot cake (Karottenkuchen) was a little bit too much moist and I think that this one was unfinished!!! - Yeah, I can't believe this because the other ones were fantastic!!!

The chocolate cake was and is my fav one of all, because it reminds me when I was a little girl and went to the kindergarden, we also have had such cakes if somebody has had a birthday:-) The chocolate which is used must be very quality because you will smell a fresh chocolate breeze at first after you will open the WECK glass jar and after you've tried it you will sure be in heaven:-)

The other/second one - the hazelnut cake was also very excellent, my mum prefers this one, it has also some small chocolate parts in the dough and also very fresh and high quality ingredients and tasts also very good to coffee and tea, a great present all over the year not only for a mothersday but also of course for a nice autumn picnic:-)

And all these cakes are packed with a nice small red cotton pattern (red usually but the carot cake came with a pink pattern) which is like the grandma style but also very stylish.

If you will also try one of the amazing cakes please check their website: http://www.albrechts-patisserie.de/ and go to the shop section (the carrot cake isn't there but you can ask the team, whether you will be able to order this one:-)) and for all lovers and couples who are ready to marry please also check their wedding cake - page, if you are interested : http://www.albrechts-patisserie.de/hochzeit.html  

I hope that you will like this post and see you later.
