LIKE TO HAVE: LE LABO CANDLE

October 17, 2010

First of all I like the simplicity of the design. Second of all I like their philosophy: who want to smell like everyone else? I mean I really like my Jean Paul Gaultier 2 fragrance but if someone else is wearing it, a part of the magic disappears. The same goes for your home. Isn’t it fabulous if your home, the place where you relax and be yourself (even without make-up and sweat pants on) smells like Paris? Well that’s where le Labo comes in. For example with Figue 15 (my favorite). The newest le Labo is located in London in Marylebone Village. But you can find shops worldwide.

Price: 50 euro. Check out: www.lelabofragrances.com

TO SEE: MAGAZINE LIBRARY JAPAN

September 27, 2010


This post is dedicated to my former love: LIV’ Magazine. While we here in the Netherlands decided to stop publishing, Japan exposed our magazine during their Magazine Libraries. Because they loved it. Last week I received some pictures and I like to share them with you. To keep the soul of LIV’ alive, but also as a recommendation. If you’re in Tokyo this week you can visit it at Maison Aoyama. A must for everyone addicted to magazines. Check their site for next events.
