[Beauty] Camomile ice cube facial

Beauty trick- camomile ice cube facial. Blogged and photographed by Xenia Kuhn for fashionrolla.com

My sensitive skin is always a little bit irritated in winter. Cold air outside, dry air inside, lack of sun... But this year the winter in Europe is especially long. It's almost April and it's snowing outside. So my skin is extremely blotchy and brittle. But I use a little trick to help my skin...

 The ice cube facial promotes blood circulation, tightens the pores, decrease little wrinkles. The camomile soothes and softens the skin. The face looks healthier, fresher and more radiant. In Winter I use the ice cube trick 2 times a week. That is really enough. In summer I use it every day. Works better than coffee...

Puff pastry rose cupcake with apple or pear

For my next dinner party I was looking for a simple light dessert that could charm my guests. This dessert looks good, tastes good and doesn't take much time. Because of the small serving size the puff pastry doesn't crumble much. This little dessert is perfect for tea parties, cocktail reception and picnics.

I've discovered a very cool site www.bittbox.com that offers a lot of very beautiful and unique FREE brushes and structures for Photoshop fans. Using those brushes you can create amazing abstract artworks and graphics. You just need at least a Photoshop CS and some basic knowledge. Print it onto transfer paper and create you own custom clothing with no sewing skills. If you you don't have a printer you can get it printed at your local copy shop or even online. I've got my statement T-shirt from www.TShirtPrinting.org

[Decor] Mad Hatter wall

Mad Hatter wall

I am obsessed with all kind of hats and hair accessories. Unfortunately I don't wear them often, because I keep them "hidden" in boxes or drawers. Not only this deco idea makes "empty" high walls look cool, it also serves as some sort of hat wardrobe. Just make sure not to hang your hats out of your reach. And don't forget to clean them once in a while...

[Style] Wide brim hats

Wide brim hats for more Spring feeling. Blogged by Xenia Kuhn for fashionrolla.com

Wide brim hats

It's March and there is snow and frost on the streets of Berlin. Dry skin, cold feet, bad mood. We all desperately waiting for Spring. Me and my friend bought some fresh flowers, lighted the fire place and dug out some wide brim summer hats. At least we have little Spring feeling inside the house.
