351. CHV x McQ

Crystal Head Vodka
This is one of my favourite photoshoots I've ever done. I'm really not sure why I never posted more photos from it before..so here it is! Subtle watermarking was needed on these since they're some of my favourites. I was looking through the old files buried away in my other laptop and found all the originals. The first post I made from it a couple years ago is the most popular post on my blog to date (well in terms of comments): Crystal Head Vodka x Alexander McQueen. So here's a repost/my favourites from the entire set.

I took these photos for a photography class project. We were to shoot a fashion accessory. I had just gotten the Alexander McQueen skull ring (from Paris, thanks to my sister!), and threw it together with some other matching items I had which turned out quite well I think. The Crystal Head Vodka skull bottle was still banned here at the time, and I wanted it really badly. I managed to get it at the perfect time. I'm very grateful for the creepy "anonymous" stranger who gave it to me. One morning my valet desk downstairs gave me a call to say someone left a package for me. I went to get it..my jaw dropped when I saw what it was..& dropped even further when they told me who had left it for me.

Victoria's Secret Beauty

Victoria's Secret beauty products
I received a nice little package in the mail a couple weeks ago, containing these beauty products by Victoria's Secret! This was my first time trying their beauty products. My favourites would have to be the fragrances and bronzer.

Instant Bronzing Tinted Shimmer Lotion ($15) - Very shimmery and moisturising for the skin (made with shea butter), used to give your tan a radiant boost. It smells delicious too! I've used it a few times so far and love how it makes my skin glisten in the sun. Check out the rest of their self tanners/bronzers collection here. The products are all great for the skin, infused with ingredients like Tahitian Monoi Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and SPF.

Victoria's Secret nail polish
These are from their new nail polish line from Spring 2013. The pink one is called Bombshell Pink, and the glittery pink one is called Backstage. Bombshell Pink is their signature shade (I can't quite capture the exact colour on this photo but just think of the VS bag's shade of pink). There's a total of 20 shades from this collection, ranging from blushing pinks to bold metallics. Find it in select Victoria's Secret stores for $10 each.

I LOVE these two..especially the "Victoria", their iconic new fragrance. Very fresh, sensual and totally irresistible. The scent is a mixture of sweet, fruity and floral accents; perfect for the summer. The timeless appeal of Victoria's Secret is perfectly captured in the blend of red berries, Victoria Rose (five distinct roses: English Rose, Rose Canina, English and French Primrose and Bulgarian Rose) and creme brulee.
The bottle is very pretty too - signature pink and statement stripes, jewel-inspired facets, metallic shine...all tied up in an iconic hand-crafted bow. Find it here and in stores for $68.

350. Munich | Marienplatz, Englischer Garten, + Giant Pretzels!

Marienplatz
Final post of Munich. I was in Prague right before, and actually missed my train/bus to Munich TWICE! Slept in the first time, went to the wrong bus stop the second time. I think that was a sign I should've just stayed in Prague, because I didn't have that much fun in Munich unfortunately. It is a nice city but I had such high expectations for it and ended up being disappointed. Although I loved Hofbrauhaus and the hotel I stayed at was amazing! The Biergartens were also fun and preppy German men were nice to look at. Anyways.

Menus were all in German but luckily my German friend was there to translate/order for me. I really like German food. My favourites there were the schnitzels & pretzels.
