COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS, AND THREE THINGS I LOVE TO DO IN NEW YORK OVER THE HOLIDAYS…

Charlotte Groeneveld for Tiffany & Co fragrance

Slowly, I’m getting accustomed to the idea that yet another year is coming to an end, and we’re spending another Christmas and New Year’s Eve far away from many of our close friends and family. Generally I’m not too sentimental about it – I mean, life goes on – but as mentioned in an earlier article on Thefashionguitar.com, scents/fragrances tend to bring back memories… They can take me back in time… So in the spirit of the holidays, and since we are talking fragrance today, here’s a little breakdown of a few favorite things I like to do in the days leading up to the holidays! Just because it smells so good…

SHELF LIFE: SHISEIDO FUTURE SOLUTION LX

Shiseido Future Solution LX edit by Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

There are so many amazing beauty products that come in on a weekly basis, but only so many opportunities to share these with you. And with my Instagram being mostly fashion focussed, and Instastories passing by so quick, I felt I should be sharing this new Shiseido Future Solution LX line that I’ve tried last month here too. The four products that I received are the Shiseido Future Solution Lx Total Protective Emulsion Spf 20 Sunscreen, the Shiseido Future Solution Lx Eye & Lip Contour Regenerating Cream, the Shiseido Future Solution Lx Total Radiance Foundation Spf 20, and lastly, the most loved product by you on my InstastoriesShiseido Paperlight Cream Eye Color. Read here why I love this new product line, and why I think you should be trying it too…

A FRAGRANCE CAN TAKE YOU BACK A LIFETIME

Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar for the new Tiffany & Co. Fragrance

Don’t you have that too, when you are somewhere and they play that one song, it takes you back to a specific moment in life that impacted you deeply; that summer love, a childhood Sunday morning memory, simply feeling that is indescribable… The same goes, for me, with scents. I know this sounds a tad strange, but trust me, I’m only referring to the good scents, and the good moments in my life that they bring up.

10 MINUTE DAY-TO-NIGHT MAKEUP ROUTINE WITH CHANEL BEAUTY

Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar for Chanel Beauty

No matter how much time I take for myself to get ready, it always comes down to my ultimate 10 minute makeup routine, because it always works. Now you know I love my makeup simple, and that I care a lot about skin care; I use a day cream, a night cream, an eye cream, and even a retinol oil to keep my skin looking fly. And even though I’m not obsessed with staying young, I do like to maintain my skin as it is, for as long as I can. However today is not about my skin care routine, nor the way I do my hair, it’s all about that little makeup secret that I accidentally developed, and has never let me down since… Come with me while I get ready for the Gabrielle Chanel Fragrance Party in Paris…

A SIMPLE HAIR ROUTINE FOR BUSY GIRLS

Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar for L'Oreal Ever Pure

My bathroom is everything to me; it’s both a place where I can treat myself to some good hair and skin action, as well as hide from the craziness of family life… It’s true, and I’m not ashamed to say it – I bet there’s women who can relate! Sometimes I just hide there for a few minutes, take a couple of deep breaths and come out again smiling. Don’t get me wrong, family life is fantastic, but not always easy, and definitely not a walk around the park. But at night, when my little love bugs are finally in bed sound asleep – after ten times coming back out again of course – it’s time for ME. Oh wait… but that’s at the end of the day, when I actually have some time for myself anyway… What about in the morning, when there’s no time for masks, face massage, or pore strips? How do I get ready in the little time I have? Well, here it is… My simple 10-minutes hair routine with L’Oreal Ever Pure!
