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!

Air Max, oh Air Max!
26th March marked the Air Max Day, a day dedicated to a sneaker that's become a classic around the world and cultures, men and women, kids and grown ups. Everyone has their personal stories, childhood memories, their first summer at the lake in Air Max, stealing or their first homeparty in these sneakers.
I still remember when I first acknowleged the beauty of the sneakers, my neighbour got me so fixated on them. Not long until I got my first pair, a surprise present from Nike, Limited Edition Nike Air Max 1 in Julep Lime that seemed sold out everywhere. Soon after I practically started living in Air Max, my most comfiest sneakers. But I think Air Max have become a fashion statement too. Next to Stan Smiths or Superstars, Nike Air Max have been the choice of sneakers during Fashion Week and they've been popping up everywhere on Streetstyle Blogs and even Vogue, Elle and Nylon.
I teamed up with Foot Locker to celebrate the Air Max Day.

Everyone got online using the hashtags #airtime and #airmaxday, creators and you, have been sharing your personal Air Max Day stories and pictures on Instagram and Social Media. I really enjoyed stalking those hashtags that day. Here's my picture I created for Instagram and below are all the outfit pictures. Hope you enjoy this post!
Until next year Air Max Day!

Sunglasses I Sonnenbrille: Dior So Real
Bag I Tasche: Chloe Drew
Dress I Kleid: Chloe SS15
Hat I Hut: Lack of Color
Sandals I Sandalen: Miu Miu
Necklace I Kette: Madeleine Issing
Bracelet I Armband: Chloe
Lipstick I Lippenstift: MAC Velvet Teddy

I'm a huge fan of Resort collections. Inspired by Monaco's flair and some of my favorite resort 2015 collections (Chloe SS15 and Zimmerman Resort 2015 are *HEAVEN* sent) and the lack of sun, summer and salty beaches (major case of wanderlust!) I'm reviving my Style Ideas category created to inspire you.
Today's edition is all about your Monaco Luxe Escape wardrobe. Monaco for me is all about the luxury, flowing gowns, the colors white or black paired with cotton candy pink or cognac leather, navy stripes of a day out on the yacht, total elegance and the feeling of sipping glasses of bordeaux or Chardonnay as the sun sets from a balcony (Hotel Martinez perhaps?) with a killer view overlooking the endless ocean and palm trees.


Sunglasses I Sonnenbrille: Celine Papillon
Hair I Haar: Moroccanoil
Bathing Suit I Schwimmanzug: Norma Kamali
Hat I Hut: Eugenia Kim
Sun screen I Sonnencreme: Skinceuticals Brightening UV Defense 30 SPF
Bracelet I Armband: J. Crew
Wedges: See By Chloe

Total LOOK: Petit Bateau

But Monaco isn't just a destination it's a perfect family get-away too. Imaging sailing away into the never ending ocean for a couple of days on your yacht with your family and kids. Going to Monaco you'd want your kids to dress the part too. Luxury and stylish dressing isn't limited to grown-ups, as little Miss North West keeps proving day by day. (How does this 2-year old have a better wardrobe than me?!)
I found the cutest luxury kids and baby wear label: Petite Bateau via Melijoe. The label itself means little ship. So perfect for your luxe escape. The latest Petite Bateau collection is supercute and has lots a pieces that just make me want to have lots of little babies so I can dress them up in all of Petite Bateau's new pieces
I picked out a luxe escape wardrobe for Little HIM and Little HER.
But please, can we just take a moment to appreciate how cute stylish kids are?!
Petit Bateau near you? Try the Ladenfinder.

Hope you enjoyed Style Ideas. I'm planing on doing more posts like these.

You might have seen on Instagram (@LisforLois) I recently had a new training session and dinner with Nike marking the beginning of a new season training towards the Nike Women 10k run (formerly known as the We Own The Night run).
We met in front of the Nike Mitte store boarded a bus and took a quick field trip to the surprise location: the breathtaking Olympia Stadium at night. And we had the whole complex to ourselves. Wow! We got dressed in the Home locker room. Dressed in our uniform head to toe in Nike (literally), we warmed up and took the 4,5 km upon us. We ran.
A route I've known well as a kid. And a place I haven't been back long since I graduated from my elementary school. Around my school, to the Olympia Stadium and back to school. For PE classes and my bicycle license. Of course back then we had our little shortcuts. Kids :)

Mario Testino in your face vogue opening party berlin lisforlois
One of the most exciting invitations I got for Fashion Week was an invitation by Vogue. An invitation to the opening of Mario Testino's In Your Face exhibition.
One thing I want to do more: visit galleries, look at art and let it completely overcome me.
Standing there between Mario Testino's works I remembered the power of a room of art having over me, the hold on me it could have and the feeling it would leave me with for hours if not sometimes days after, from my a-level time (my main courses were art & english) as we'd visit galleries on the regular.
Mario Testino's In Your Face exhibition is a must look-at. For photography lovers, fashion lovers and anyone with an appreciation for moods captured in a pure moment.
And it left me craving again.
So here is one thing I want to do more often: visit galleries.

lois opoku esprit x caroline blomst swimwear collection launch lisforlois esprit x caroline blomst swimwear collection launch lisforlois
You may have seen on my Instagram (@LisforLois) that I've had my first swim this year! Esprit rented out the Stadtbad Neukölln, which by the way is one of the most beautiful swimming pools I've seen in Berlin. Ancient paintings and frescos, greek architecture.. ah! All to present their latest design collaboration with none other than Stockholm Streetstyle's very own Caroline Blomst. I've always admired her sense of style and her vision to discover great looks on the streets of pretty much anywhere now, not limited to Stockholm as the name of the blog may convey.
I was looking forward to see what she created.
After arriving two hours late - yes, sadly I missed the swim dancers, I had misread my invitation - I still took my time to browse through the new collection while sipping freshly made smoothies and munching on my fruit bowl.
Jasmin, me and Cindy from the Esprit took it upon ourselves to jump into the pool. The water was so inviting! While most girls left, we couldn't complain having the pool all to ourselves. I mean why did Esprit rent the entire place for, right? :)

My favorite piece of the Esprit x Caroline Blomst collection has to be the white bathing suit, that has such a timeless cut. The bikinis are well padded and have very flattering cut for your cleavage. Trust me, even my mini boobs looked nice and plum. The collection mainly plays with different patterns and different kind of mix and match styles to every pattern and cut.
Overall a cute collection Esprit and Caroline Blomst have created together.
I'm summer ready..
