TRUE OR FALSE?

April 10, 2011

When I visited Australia ten years ago I was definitely a Sydney fan. I lived in Bondi Beach, celebrated New Year’s Eve in some hot club near the harbour and loved the skyscrapers (yes, I’m a skyscraper girl otherwise I would be living in Amsterdam right now). Melbourne was more like Amsterdam I thought: with all the cozy terraces in St Kilda. But while I’m still making wishlists for both cities for my next trip Melbourne is quickly becoming full of cool hotspots. Hmm… what do you think? Which city in Australia is better?

Cushion from Make Me Iconic (also available: Melbourne is better than Sydney – just in case). Price: 62 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: BODYLOTION Aesop

July 24, 2010

When I stayed in le Studio 22 in Paris the bathroom was filled with Aesop goodies. I was afraid to use it, because I didn’t want to. It looks so stunning that you only want to keep it in your bathroom on a special shelf. That’s exactly what the owners think based on the beautiful Aesop stores around the world. In september there is a new one opening in Paris, but you can find Aesop stores in London, Zurich, Tokyo, Basel, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and ofcourse in Australia (the home of Aesop).

This bodylotion is perfect as an after shower treatment for your skin. Price: 75 euro.
