HELLO YOUTUBE!!!


Okay this has been a step I've been thinking about for a looooong time. Trust me, I have considered stepping into the Youtube world since the end of last year. Well actually about a year ago just before my trip to L.A. I told and he suggested Youtube to me and kinda inflicted that thought within me. Then I started helping Nisi filming some of her videos and it really became something I seriously considered.

Now I've finally done it. I took the step.

Here it is. The next step. And I'm ready for new adventures and creating new content. New kind of content. You'll finally get to see me in action. I decided to start with an outfit video, something I do on my blog already anyway, just that it's in motion this time. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. So let me know what you think about my first video, which I couldn't have done without the help of my friend Nisi.

Do you like it? I really hope you do. Because I really enjoyed making it.

For outfit details, head over to my new channel: Lois Opoku and watch the video Outfit of the Day - Waterfall Skirts and Leather Jacket on Youtube. You'll find everything in the description box and I've directly linked a few items incase you want to shop them. Oh and hit the "thumbs up" and "subscribe" button while you're at it. It'll make me really happy.
Ahhhhh...
Okay. Okay.

Oh and just a piece of advice, whatever you've been planning or considering on doing, may it be this week, the last couple of months or right this second - JUST DO IT <3


Love Lois xxx

NOKIA #LUMIASUMMERGLOW PARTY

Lois Opoku mittsommer nokia #lumiasummerglow lisforlois
About a month ago Nokia invited for a celebration of summer with a pop of color. I first thought about coming in a yellow summer dress to match the new Lumia 930, 630 & 635 with Windows Phone 8.1, which come in bright orange, green, yellow or black or white, and live up to summer brights but then decided for this white hippie touch dress I got from Esprit during their beautiful Mittsommar afternoon. Anyway Nokia chose the roof deck of the Nhow to introduce the new phone. It was a really nice chilled early evening with the lovely Nokia team.
Naturally I got to test the new Lumia 630, Lumia 635 or Lumia 930 and play around with the new functions. I practically took over one of the testphones and infiltrated it with a few (*cough* read= a lot!) too many selfies of myself. Can't waste moments of perfect selfie - sorry I mean lufie - light x finding your right angle for a change, right? RIGHT?! Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about. Scroll a bit up in your camera roll and I know you got at least one set of a minimum 30 same looking selfies, missy ;)
To be honest I didn't really discover all the functions this new phone brings with its launch. I was #busytakingselfies.. #DontMindMeWhileIgoTakeAnotherSelfie #GoodFaceDay oh and the classic #ShamelessSelfie #obsessedWithMyselfMuch..

THEY'RE REAL PUSH UP LINER LAUNCH TOUR

BenefitLiner They're Real Push Up Liner Tour
A couple of weeks ago Benefit invited me to their very fancy partybus in celebration of their new They're Real Push Up Eyeliner. Actually we got a sneak peek a week prior to to its official Germany launch. The bus and the Benefit Team was enroute from Munich to Cologne bringing their energy all they way to their final stop: Berlin.
And as a Berlin girl I sure wasn't going to miss out on the fun. Admits Youtubers and Beauty Bloggers we rode through Berlin with this really cool bus - music ofcourse at full blast, a few glasses of champagne too many, lots of laughs and some really crazy Benababes who were up to no good, we drove through Berlin. Benefit had some surprises for us on board. We found each other into little groups and had to solve some tasks as a team. The game is turned out to be really fun and my team won a few stages. No one remembers who was announced as winners, but I'm pretty sure it was us. Team #trashyissexy.

I WEAR WHAT I LIKE AND I LIKE WHAT I WEAR - ABOUT BEING TO FAT FOR CROP TOPS

Selena Gomez Adidas NEO Lois Opoku lisforlois
Hey Guys,
How have you been? Just wanted to share my outfit I chose for the NEO Brunch with Adidas NEO in Munich earlier. Finally get to show you one of my favourite summer jackets which is this flower bomber from the Selena Gomez for Adidas NEO collection.
I've been living this combination lately:  a pair of rad ass and comfortable sneakers, high waisted skater skirts (perfect to accentuate my rather small waist and hide my growing belly under them ;) Reasons to wear high waisted skater skirts: Check! Double check! These kind of skirts were made for my body shape and I adore them!). Paired with a crop top as to give the illusion of me being super skinny, because you know, crop tops are for skinny girls.

SHORT TRIP TO MUNICH WITH ADIDAS NEO

Adidas NEO brunch lisforlois Adidas NEO Brunch lisforlois
A little while back my favourite Adidas NEO team invited me to come brunch with them in Munich, hang out and have a look at the upcoming collection and what's new for Selena Gomez x Adidas NEO, which will be in stores next week.
The night before NEO treated us to some really good burgers (Hamburgerei, München goood!) reunited with my NEO girls, Anni and Chi. And we were joined by the rest of the Today Is girls and my baby girl Serah.
During brunch at Little Charlottchen München, I browsed through the new pieces and simply enjoyed the time with the team. NEO has some cute pieces coming up, also within the Selena Gomez x NEO collection, which we weren't allowed to show you guys yet. My favourite piece has to be the jacket with leather arms and wine red checked material (I tried it on below) that's perfect for fall.
We kinda all stayed a while until brunch turned to lunch, before it was time to catch my train and head back to Berlin.

POST FASHION WEEK BEAUTY TREATMENT AT HENDRICKS SALON OF CURIOSITIES

Hendricks_Salon_of_Curiosities_002
First all let me start by saying, sorry I've been so M.I.A. lately! Been stuck learning for my first exams and I haven't even gotten around to update you from my crazy Fashion Week week. Well I'm back and I have lots to tell you about. Let me start with one of my favourite things of that week: my beauty treatments.
Now I had quite a few beauty treatments that week, but one I looked forward to the most was my post-fashion week treatment at HENDRICK'S Gin Salon of Curiosities. HENDRICK'S Gin transformed the Concept Store Wheadon into a little beauty salon/cocktail bar/barbar shop paradise.
