If you follow me on social media you’ll know I’ve just come back from a few days in Berlin! Berlin is a place that’s never really intrigued me – until I discovered the Bikini Hotel. tranquil19

The Bikini Hotel is in the top 100 design hotels in the world. It is jungle themed and one side of the hotel is actually complete glass so you can get a full view of the Berlin Zoo which also just happens to be in the hotel’s back garden pretty much!

The hotel is full of quirky little features including your own bicycles in your room to ride around the city in, hammocks, electronic bathtubs with an in-tub sound system and insightful books scattered around the hotel and your room in case you fancy a read with titles such as ‘How to be an Elegant Gentleman’.  Not to mention the elevator having the soundtrack of David Bowie along with electronic artwork moving around the walls. IMG_2941tranquil14tranquil8tranquil13tranquilOur room was an XL Urban Room. Which meant it was facing the city. The main feature point was the extreme, grey URBAN bathroom with the HUGE electronic bathtub gracing the middle of the room. Unfortunately we made such a mess in our room (my boyfriend doesn’t seem to grasp the concept that clothes can go in a wardrobe….not the floor haha) – I didn’t think it was best to photograph it so I photographed another room for y’all. Everything is the same as our room except our bathroom was a hell of a lot funkier haha!tranquil5tranquil3tranquil4tranquil6tranquil1One of the main features of the hotel is the infamous Monkey Bar. People come from all over and queue for a loooong time to get into the popular bar – one of the perks of being a hotel guest is that you gain instant access with your keycard. Smooth. The bar faces the Berlin Zoo and is honestly the best atmosphere I’ve ever witnessed. tranquil18IMG_2984tranquil20tranqul21This is the hotel ground floor BTW. OMG!tranquil16And little features like this didn’t go amiss… tranqul11IMG_2954tranquil9tranquil15 Our stay overall was so fun. This hotel is full of so many amenities that you don’t want to step outside! The staff was ever so tentative and nothing was ever too much to ask.

Oh and did I mention the hotel has it’s very own shopping centre… with the CHICEST stores that stock designers such as Moschino, Comme Des Garcons, Vans and many more. tranqulil12

I also did this shoot whilst in Berlin…

We also ventured to Mitte and I found my dream store where you could make your own jewellery. The beads and accessories were to-die-for kitsch and featured every sort of charm you could ever wish for from life-like miniature cats to mini records with Michael Jacksons face on it. This is the necklace I made. I also got a bracelet but I’m piecing it together myself as I thought it would be fun… I clearly like to make life difficult.

I should say Berlin was a success!…xo

scarfedit6scarfedit7So if you’ve read recent interviews with me (interview with The Braid Bar – click here –  or my interview with Comb – click here) you would have noticed that I’ve been banging on about getting a big fluffy scarf for a while now! Amelia-Jane answered my prayers and sent over one of their wool scarves. I love it! It makes a boring outfit look snobby and fabulous. They also sent over some other goodies such as their gorgeous faux fur hat etc. ameliajane

The packaging is amazing! Such a treat.

Toni&Guy X Matthew Williamson Glamour Washbag

beauty8This is so perfect for any fashionista who also loves to look after their hair! A collab made in heaven with two amazing brands – Toni&Guy and British MAJOR designer Matthew Williamson. I’m so in love with the design of the washbag by Matthew Williamson – and everyone gets a new washbag for Christmas right? It’s almost too nice to store your shampoos in. And lets talk about the shampoos – I’m actually using these myself and they are working wonders. They smell amazing too. The 3D volumiser that comes with this is one of my faves – a product that actually works and doesn’t leave a sticky build up. Will talk more about that product in a bit… stay tuned…

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

beauty2

So This is officially my most favourite product to ever be made. And that’s a statement coming from me. I own A LOT of eyeshadow palettes and this not only has all the perfect colours, pigment and longevity to stay on your eys but the shadows SMELL LIKE CHOCOLATE. This product has been on the market for a while and for some reason I detained myself from buying it until now as I thought the whole thing was just a marketing ploy and it wouldn’t actually smell like chocolate… but it truly does and even if it didn’t I would still purchase anyway as the shadows themselves are fabulous; they never fall. The packing itself is simply genius. A definite christmas must have for the makeup and chocolate lover… or even just makeup lover!

Vita Liberata TRYSTAL MINERALS Bronzerbeauty1As most girls who like to tan themselves know – Vita Liberata is up there with the luxury tanning brands. Their products are great and this one is the worlds first self-tanning bronzer. In simple terms – it’s a normal bronzer that you use to tan/contour your face after applying your foundation or moisturizer BUT the tan actully stays for 3-7 days. Pretty cool huh? It’s a great gift and you should definitely try this out.

Toni&Guy X Sophia Webster Limited Edition 3D Volumiser 
beauty9This is ANOTHER AWEEESOME collab from Toni&Guy with British Shoe designer Sophia Webster (I see their Brit pattern!). Sophia Webster is one of my fave designers at the moment so this particularly excited me – especially with the gorgeous packaging designed by her. Following on from what I was talking about in my first post – this is a larger edition (and Sophia Webster edition) of the 3D volumiser which I LOVE LOVE LOVE. It is honestly my go-to product. It gives you a volumised look without the horrible sticky-texture that comes with most of the ‘volumiser/spray’ products. Purchase here 

Hydraluron Moisturiser and Nanoblur 
beauty4So this is probably one of the most exciting products I’ve recieved all year. Nanoblur is a prouct said to make you look 10 years younger. It is recommended for those of the ‘selfie era’ to achieve flawless skin in pictures without the photoshop. This product doesn’t ‘remove your wrinkles’ as such but provides superficial coverage of skin imperfections – basically giving the opitcal illusion that your imperfections have been improved. When I first tried this – I tested it out on my hand and I was completely amazed. There was a clear section of my hand that was SO smooth and flawless compared to the rest. And obviously when I used it on my face there were no disappointments – It clearly works. The perfect christmas pressie for any selfie lover. And lets not forget the Hydraluron moisturiser from the same lab. It is honestly one of the best moisturisers i’ve ever used and I find it so hard to find an afforable moisturiser that genuinely replenishes your skin and takes away all dryness.

Topshop Lip Ombrebeauty13

This is SOOOO COOL. I actually love Topshop makeup – they’ve released some of my best beauty products and this is another cool idea from them. Forget ombre hair, it’s all about the ombre lip these days! You put the colours on together to create a bold look. As this lip is such a statement, minimal makeup goes perfect to achieve the fashion look. Affordable and clever. A thoughtful Christmas stocking filler!

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette beauty10I picked this palette up in my goodie bag at the Sleek party and it is INCRED. These colours are from the ‘Midas Touch’ limited edition palette. It comes with three baked powders and one luxurious cream – filled with blue, silver, pearl and baby pink tones. Gives you the PRINCESS look for the whole body. You can use it on the eyes, face, chest, legs.  The colours are so different from any palette I’ve seen. Sleek is one of the cheapest makeup brands on the market but their products are some of the best. You NEED to buy this stunning highlighting set. Like seriously. It will give you a completely different look.

Purchase right here… click, click, click

Sleek are also doing these Christmas crackers with a surprise inside… super festive and cute!
