Shark Attack Loves ... // Choupette At The Beach

Karl Lagerfeld's pet cat is without a doubt the most fashion kitty in history: from Vogue covers and editorials to multiple nannies and iPads, Choupette has it all. Now that Karl has dedicated an entire beachwear collection to her, Choupette has yet another big achievement to add to her already impressive resumé. 

It's been raining cats (lol) and dogs here in Belgium for the past couple of days, so this cheerful summer collection was a nice welcome into my mailbox. I'm loving the bold, colorful prints and anything with kitties on it will do for me, so that's always a plus. Luckily, we have a Karl Lagerfeld store in Antwerp, so I can't wait to stop by ASAP. I won't be able to leave for a holiday with my boyfriend until September, but I think I'll already add some items to my closet already.

Find out my favorite items and their prices after the jump.

For The Boys // Axe 'Find Your Magic' Collection

A slightly different beauty post for today... Every now and then, people (and especially the male species, including my dad) ask me why I don't write about subjects that boys / men would like. I'm guessing the fact that I'm a woman might have something to do with it. But when AXE sent me a beauty box filled with goodies for my boyfriend, I thought I'd give it another try. They started a new campaign with a powerful message I strongly believe in. Curious to find out what it is? Just keep on reading!

AXE started the Find Your Magic campaign to get rid of the traditional macho man and to focus on each man individually. According to them (and I find it true myself as well), each man has something to be proud of, whether it's the brains, the eyes, a hobby or another personal asset. Study has shown that 'only' 20 % of the women fall for the stereotypic macho and that other women prefer a man who is confident and isn't afraid to show his strong points -- which doesn't necessarily needs to be a six-pack. AXE wants to trigger men to be proud of everything that makes them so special as an individual. So, to cut things short: confidence really is the key, boys and men! Go on and find that magic.

AXE created a new range of beauty products, giving men the tools to develop their own personal style to the fullest. The new range is based on three different styles: Urban, Adrenaline and Signature. Each style contains a anti-transpirant deodorant, a daily fragrance, a shower gel and hair products. I will show you my boyfriend's box and also focus on the other styles, right after the jump.

Ladies: show your boyfriend, husband, best male friend, father, brother ... that you love him just the way we are and spread this powerful message. Single boys and men: stick to your beliefs and who you are; women dig that whizz.

Beauty // MAC x Zac Posen Collection

Leave it to MAC to keep on creating collections that will crash my bank account every time again. This time, the beauty brand teamed up with fashion designer Zac Posen to launch a collection consisting out of products for the face, eyes and lips. They also included two make up brushes.

The collection comes in a matte packaging with the designer's name written on it in gold letters. Super classy and an instant eye-catcher in your make up stash. 

Here's what all parties had to say about the collaboration:

"After dazzling women with his modern but timeless designs on the runway and red carpet for 13 years, New York designer Zac Posen presents his debut colour collection for MAC. From the iconic packaging to the square-handled contour and buffer brushes that boast the designer's mark, every loving detail that Posen adorns on the female form takes on a new shape for the face."

"Over the past 15 years I have learned a great deal from MAC about beauty. Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand and I have always wanted to create a make up collection to complement my designs and brand. It was only natural to work with MAC to create my first ever signature collection. I wanted to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage."
- Zac Posen

"Zac Posen has been a part of the MAC family for over 15 years, as we've been supporters from his very first collection in 2001. Zac's classic designs and deft hand in draping, textures and overall femininity evoke a kind of throw-back glamour that still feels modern. This collection is the perfect encapsulation of both of our worlds, with something sophisticated and sexy for every woman out there."
- James Gager, Senior Vice President / Group Creative Director

The MAC x Zac Posen collection will be available online and in selected MAC stores from 27th of February.
