Review - Bose Quiet Comfort 35.

When I like a song, and I mean REALLY like one, I have to listen to it over and over again. At the moment my absolute favorite is Closer by The Chainsmokers. I am seriously obsessed. When you are anything like me and you just can't live without your music but you don't want to drive the people around you crazy with that same song on the loop all day then you might wanna invest in really good headphones. And when we talk about really good headphones we just have to discuss Bose. And that is what this Sunday's post is going to be.. a review of the Bose Quiet Comfort 35.

Jord Woodwatch & Giveaway.

{Advertisement - This post was written in collaboration with Jord Woodwatches}

I am more than excited for today's post. Jord Woodwatches were so kind and sent me one of their incredible watches. I had admired them for so long on Instagram and once I received their E-Mail I typed YES faster than I could even think. In case you are not familiar with their brand, they design very chic and unique watches made out of different woods and Swiss movements. They sell both women's watches and men's watches.

The service and the shipping were amazing. They even adjust your watch bracelet to the required size and of course include the rest of the links in your package. It took a little more than a week to arrive which is pretty quick regarding it came all the way from the US to Germany.. so this part was really good.

Regarding the watch, I can only really tell you the most positive stuff. But I still want you to know that all my opinions are my own, Jord did not ask me to say anything. They just asked for an honest review and here it is. Looks wise it is more than stunning. In reality, I like the watch even more than on their website. The contrast between the black and the gold with the clean lines is totally up my street and makes it such a cool watch! In case you are wondering, I decided to go for the Frankie Series in Ebony & Gold.
The quality is so amazing, and the price is more than justified. Even my boyfriend was very impressed and he really cares a lot about craftsmanship when it comes to watches. 
The watch itself is very light due to the material. I personally love light watches because they are so comfortable to wear and you just forget that they are even on your arm.. but if you really want a weighted watch this is not for you. (But you definitely miss out on something haha..).

In the following, I will show you the watch in a few more shots and then at the end you will get the chance to win a 75$ Gift card for Jord Woodwatches! Sound amazing? Then keep on scrolling..

Did someone say Giveaway? Yes, indeed. You can now win a 75$ Gift card for the Jord Woodwatches Onlineshop. And the best thing, all other entrants will get a 20$ Giftcard. So you will win anyway.. YAY!

My go-to highlighter - MAC Soft & Gentle.

For a very long time, I was not a big fan of highlighter. I think a lot of you can relate when I say that for a very long time I was all about that matte look. The smallest bit of shine (or "glow" as everyone calls it now) and I felt people would think my skin looks greasy. Since Kim K moved on from contouring to highlighting suddenly everyone was after that super glowy look. And what can I say... the more you see things the more you grow with them.. so here I am talking about my favorite product to give me that highlighted look. 

I started off with a few different drugstore highlighters. Normally I am a big fan of drugstore makeup. Especially for mascara, I think the high-end ones can't really keep up but I guess that's a personal preference. But unfortunately, the drugstore ones just don't cut it in this category. They are either way too glittery and chunky or they don't do anything at all. 

Since I had a gift voucher waiting to spend I thought I would try one of the most hyped product by MAC: Soft & Gentle. And let me tell you... I was not disappointed. Since then I use it absolutely daily. It gives me the perfect highlight without being glittery. This shade is also perfect for my skin tone. I use it under my eyebrows, down my nose, on top of my cupid's bow and obviously on top of my non-existing) cheekbones. 

I would totally recommend this highlighter to everyone. But I also saw that they do a variety of shades so maybe you should just hit your next MAC store and let them try the different ones on you. 

Which is your favorite highlighter? Next on my wish list is for sure Becca's champagne pop.
