PERFUME REVIEW: GUCCI BLOOM


Hello guys, hope all of you are doing good. I am delighted to do a review about one of my  favorite fragrances currently: Gucci Bloom. If you are still searching for an amazing gift, I would recommend you to read this review. But let's get into details first:
Top Note: Rangoon Creeper, a plant discovered in South India that changes from white to pink and finally to red when it blooms, infuses a powdery, floral edge to the fragrance.
Middle Note: Tuberose
Base Note: Jasmine bud extract, obtained through an exclusive method of co-extraction to impart a fresh green and petal scent on the skin
Packaging: As you can see the packaging on the picture, the fragrance comes in a beautiful kind of vintage looking package with red flowers on. Gucci Bloom is written on the package in black and 
The Flacon: The pink glass flacon looks so super elegant. I don't have a similar flacon yet. It's a bit heavy which makes the flacon seem even more classy and precious in my opinion.
The Fragrance: The perfume is quite heavy, it's definitely very feminine and makes you feel grown. I love the flower scent very much it brings a happy feeling into a rainy day.
Key Information: Winner of Allure magazine's Best of Beauty award for Best Floral Fragrance 2017
Background Story: "Debuting the first fragrance developed wholly under Alessandro Michele's creative vision: a scent designed to celebrate the authenticity, vitality and diversity of women - flourishing in a natural, expressive and individual way" Gucci. 
My Opinion: I really love this fragrance. If you check out my Instagram feed (@ami.coco), you will see that flowers were my thing in 2017. I personally adore flowery fragrances as they remind me of spring and summer. But this fragrance is simply perfect for autumn/ winter due to its heaviness. As I already said it's a very feminine fragrance and it kind of reminds me of a lady who's walking past me, styled very elegant. I can definitely recommend this fragrance to you, if you love the flowery side of life as much as I do. And if you love heavy, deep perfumes, this one is for YOU!
Lots of Love, Amira

KHAKI KIMONO, BUCKLE BOOTS & BELL SLEEVE BLOUSE



Hey loves, I hope you are doing alright. It's been raining the whole day basically and I tried to stay at home and do as much as I can today (which didn't work as good as I expected, buuut okaaay lol). I am showing you an autumn kimono look today. I uploaded  quite a few kimono looks this summer and thought I had to say goodbye to them at least till spring next year, buuut I was wrong! I received this kimono and the scarf by Slam Lady and I couldn't resist trying them on NOW. Paired them up with my favorite buckle boots and et voila it looks pretty autumn-ish. I really hope there's going to be another opportunity for me to wear it this year but if not, I'm already ready for next spring *.*
Lots of Love, Amira

BLOGGER LOOKBOOK: GREY STATEMENT COAT & RUFFLES DRESS


Good day my lovely people. I hope all of you are doing great or at least good lol. I'm feeling much better today, so it was time for a new blog post. In this months Blogger Lookbook it's all about coats (check out the other posts, I will link the pages down below). I was always a huge fan of coats, specially big once. I love the way you can hide yourself in them, simply amazing. Somehow I've got all my statement coats from the same brand. I'm not sure about the dress I'm wearing. It made me feel very girly, and we all know I'm not really the girly girly type. But at least it's not pink, so I guess I kinda like it, lol. Hope you'll have an amazing weekend.
Cheers, Amira

PLAID PANTS, CUT OUT DENIM JACKET & OLD SKOOL VANS


Hey guys, I hope all of you are doing great out there. So winter already hit us here in Germany. It kinda arrived really quick, we had a quite sunny October ending and that was it, lol. I had a quite stressful end of the week. I went to two events and I hurt my neck as well, which is currently not so fun, because I look very bad with a ruff around my neck lmao. But it's all good, I can laugh about it (so does everyone around me too -.-). I hope your November start went quite well too. Can't believe how fast the time is running, it's just crazy. Oh and what do you think about my Off White bag dupe? I was surprised at how good it looks, not as good as the original, but perfect for a student budget.
With Love, Amira
PS: I know my pants are too big for me, I don't know why I keep buying cloths which are too big for me. That's a random fact by the way :D

PERFUME REVIEW: FRAMBOISE NOIRE BY SHAY & BLUE LONDON


Hello guys, hope all of you are doing good. I am delighted to do a review about my hands down favorite perfume in 2017. Famboise Noire by Shay & Blue London is just everything! But let's get into details first:
- Top Note: Rare black raspberry with mixed forest beries for a hit of red fruit
- Heart Note: A touch of chic iris pallida 
- Base Note: White oud and black woods underpin the composition for a darkly noir finish
The fragrance was handcrafted in England with real flowers, fruits and spices.
Packaging: I received the perfume in the most beautiful way. I don't think I ever had a perfum with such a nice packaging. The package arrived in a blue box filled with blue confetti (see picture at the bottom). The confetti prevented the perfume box from damaging. Everything was perfectly aligned. 
The perfume box with a blue ribbon on it made everything look more glamorous than it already was. The whole packaging made you feel like you never want to throw it away and that there's something really special inside. Simply picture perfect. 
The Flacon: The glass flacon looks so super elegant with its golden cap. The cap got the initials "SB" and "Boutique Perfumery" engraved. Everything was kept in a golden and blue tone. Is there a better color combination than these two? As you can see, I am really and honestly in love.
The Fragrance: As I already said this fragrance was basically my 2017 highlight scent. I had the chance to take it with me to Ghana, therefore it has special memories attached to it as well. I normally go for flowery and lighter scents, so this one was quite something different. It's pretty intense in a good way and it's hard to describe, but once you smelled it, you feel super vivid. The mixture of the berries and the black woods feels like a sweet scent at first, but once it faded away, you come to feel the "darkly noir finish".
Key Information: This perfume was the best autumn-winter fragrance 2015 by Vogue and the best scent of 2015 by Lucky Scent Niche Perfume Awards. All Shay & Blue products aren't being tested on animals.
Other Opinion: "Framboise Noire sparkles intensely on skin. I imagine a shadowed forest wedding buried deep in flickered, firelit-trees. It is deeply satisfying to wear with a frosted burgundy fade out. Framboise Noire is another pitch perfect addition to the Shay & Blue collection" The Silver Fox for CaFleureBon
My Opinion: I tried this fragrance out for quite a while - during summer and now during autumn. I feel like it's more of an autumn perfume, because it makes me feel cozy and warm. But then again I loved it during summer, because it had a wild and fruity touch to it, which is hard to describe but it felt and smelled fantastic. I need to stop using it too much, because I want to keep this one forever. The packaging, the love for details, the website - everything looks super well thought and lovely. I can recommend this fragrance to anyone who loves intense scents. And can we talk about how this fragrance isn't fading away? I put some on my scarves a while a go and they still smell like this amazing perfume. I love it. Honestly, I really need to go visit Shay & Blue the next time I'm in London, because I am sure that I will find many more other fragrances I won't be able to keep my hands from. Oh and by the way, I am very sure Shay & Blue products are a perfect gift for the upcoming festive season, in case you need a gift. They have so much to offer, I simply have to recommend it to you guys.

3 EASY ANTI-AGING TIPS


Hey ihr Lieben, ich hoffe, es geht euch gut. Heute habe ich einen Beauty Post fĂŒr euch und zwar habe ich mir Gedanken um meine Haut gemacht, denn schon in jungen Jahren können unschöne Falten entstehen, die das Hautbild erschlaffen können. Dabei ist es spielend leicht etwas gegen die Hautalterung zu tun und fĂŒr ein anhaltend schönes und makelloses Hautbild zu sorgen. Dabei ist vor allem die Haut im Gesicht zunehmend von dem Prozess der Hautalterung betroffen. Durch falsche Pflege, schlechte ErnĂ€hrung und einen mangelnden Schutz kann auch jĂŒngere Haut Falten produzieren. Ich muss zugeben, ich mache mir eigentlich nie Gedanken um das Thema "Hautalterung", aber wenn man das Thema ganz easy angeht und mit kleinen Änderungen im Alltag etwas Verbessern bzw. PrĂ€ventimaßnahmen ergreifen kann, dann mache ich das natĂŒrlich. Hier habe ich drei praktische Tipps zusammengestellt, wie ihr ohne viel Aufwand das Hautbild im Gesicht möglichst lange jung und frisch halten könnt.
Tipp 1: Auf feuchtigkeitsspendende Cremes setzen
Der Markt fĂŒr Anti-Aging Produkte gibt viel her – doch nur die wenigstens Cremes helfen wirklich dabei den Alterungsprozess der Haut zu stoppen und das Hautbild tatsĂ€chlich zu revitalisieren. Meine Haut ist dauerhaft trocken, das liegt unter anderem an meiner Hautfarbe. Wichtig fĂŒr junge und straffe Haut ist Feuchtigkeit, denn nur so kann das Hautbild dauerhaft in einem schönen Glanz erstrahlen. Dabei ist vor allem die Meforma Rejuvenation Hyaluron Booster Cream zu erwĂ€hnen, welche mit den Wirkstoffen HyaluronsĂ€ure und Argireline auf natĂŒrliche Weise dafĂŒr sorgt Falten zu reduzieren und die Haut zu erneuern. HyaluronsĂ€ure zĂ€hlt zu einem der besten feuchtigkeitsspendenen Mitteln auf Markt und erreicht die Haut bis tief in die Poren. Damit kann die Haut einen Feuchtigkeitsspeicher anlegen und fĂŒr mehr ElastizitĂ€t sorgen. Denn nichts ist schĂ€dlicher als trockene Haut, wodurch sich schnell unschöne Falten bilden können.
Tipp 2: Sport und ErnÀhrung
Gesunde ErnĂ€hrung und viel Sport helfen dabei das Hautbild fĂŒr lange Zeit frisch und jung aussehen zu lassen. Dabei sollte auf eine besonders vitaminreiche Kost aus viel Obst und GemĂŒse gesetzt werden. In Kombination mit Sport ergibt sich so die beste Vorbeugung gegen die Hautalterung. Auch Lebensmittel mit Omega 3 FettsĂ€uren helfen dabei die Haut vor dem Austrocknen zu schĂŒtzen. Ein ungesunder ErnĂ€hrungsstil und das Rauchen (!!!!) können dabei schon in jungen Jahren dafĂŒr sorgen die Haut alt aussehen zu lassen. Dieser Punkt ist vor allem auch fĂŒr mich wichtig, da ich mich doch gerne nicht so gesund ernĂ€hre und Sport? Haha, mich zum Sport machen zu bringen ist auch eine schwere Geburt. Genau deswegen sind diese Tipps auch fĂŒr mich super wichtig.
Tipp 3: Stress und zu viel Sonne vermeiden
Stress und Hektik sind Gift fĂŒr die Haut und treiben die Alterung der Hautzellen voran. So sollte man versuchen den Alltag etwas chilliger anzugehen und sich nicht stĂ€ndigen Stress auszusetzen. Auch zu viel Sonne lĂ€sst die Haut schneller altern und sorgt dafĂŒr die Haut auszutrocknen. Dadurch können sich auch schon in jungen Jahren Falten bilden und die Schönheit der Haut aufs Spiel gesetzt werden. Aber so oft wird die Sonne in naher Zukunft in Deutschland eh nicht scheinen :D

Ich hoffe, die Tipps gefallen euch. Habt ihr vielleicht noch welche? Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe,
Amira
