I guess most of you know it already, we moved! Our new hair and beauty salon is in Carrer de la Missió 13 in Palma de Mallorca, and we could not be happier with the neighborhood and our adorable and eclectic neighbors! In particular, I would like to introduce you this time to Nekane Leorza, the creative owner of the studio and decoration shop LASANTA&CO.
As I was preparing myself to write about my fabulous meeting with the fashiondesigners of AUBERGIN, It hit me! I wanted to emphasize my blog post on women empowering women. I love working with women, I have 3 fantastic and super powerful ladies supporting me in my salon in Palma de Mallorca. Our daily job is mainly with women, we are dedicated to making them look and feel beautiful. The style, the way you look is also important to empower you on the inside and helps you to shine your light.
I was very excited about this photo shoot. When I saw the fabulous design from AUBERGIN I instantly knew I wanted to forecast them in our blog. The brand represents all I feel comfortable with when it comes to fashion. Authentic, sustainable, ethical, soft fabrics, pure and natural lines but also very feminine and elegant, classic in a modern way, simple and all-time gems to keep in your closet.
Who does not fall for the idea of eating a piece of crusty bread dipped in the best olive oil with a hint of salt? It’s amazing how simple ingredients can sometimes taste the most. Especially when it comes to regional products like the rewarded Majorcan olive oil AUBOCASSA. I was lucky to be invited to the farm to observe closely the harvest of olives and enjoy an unforgettable picnic in the middle of olive trees fields.
The most aromatic olives they use are grown on the island and processed immediately after harvest, pressed in cold until the best olive oil is obtained. In AUBOCASSA, QUALITY, EXPERIENCE, GOURMET and HIGH QUALITY are written in capital letters!
When Tiffany Blackman, representative of AUBOCASSA, told me about an exquisite picnic with olive oil tasting in the middle of magnificent olive groves, in the heart of Mallorca, I could not resist! I immediately signed up for this excursion and unique experience.
If you consider yourself a “scents’itive” person like me, with a passion for luxury and rare perfumes, you should keep on reading. I have made a discovery you don’t want to miss, believe me! What makes a scent special? In my opinion, an extraordinary fragrance should be unexpected, sensual, unique and soulful. A scent that takes you by surprise, that combines the new with the intimately familiar, and that turnes your inner beauty into an olfactive miracle. That’s a rare catch! Thus, I couldn’t be more pleased to share with you my latest find: HERVÉ GAMBS PARIS 1989, a beautiful collection of the finest nonconformist haute perfumes, created by the exceptional Parisian artist Hervé Gambs. I’ll let you know why his fragrances are the beginning of a scentful love affair.
HERVÉ GAMBS is not a perfumer but a creator that instinctively uses an olfactive material as an Art. Far from standard perfumes, his creations are unique and full of truth. Each one is a discovery of selected raw ingredients from nature, a focus on asperities and unbelievable subtleties, that make their signature beauty. To magnify his compositions, HERVÉ GAMBS slowly but surely extends the maceration process to allow time for all components to melt quietly and sublimate the heart of each perfume, giving it back more depth making it remarkable long-lasting.
It seems to be a dream, eating chocolate without a bad conscience. It’s getting even better: If you eat raw chocolate, you’re doing a big favor to your health. And it’s good for your skin and hair. A real Superfood! This is what CACHAO is claiming, a delicate chocolate manufacture, located right in the heart of Santa Catalina, a hip district in Palma de Mallorca. I was able to have a chat with Tino Wolter, the head pâtissier and food designer of CACHAO. Find out why this delicious vegan and organic chocolate is a godsend.
Raw cacao was already revealed by ancient cultures as the “food of the gods”. The finest premium raw chocolate from CACHAO absolutely deserves this honor, without a doubt! Handcrafted with passion, and made of 100% organic unroasted cacao beans, right here in Mallorca. The different chocolate creations are a real work of art, made by Tino Wolter, the consummate pâtissier, and powered by “bconnected Holistic Food”.
I do my job as a hair stylist and colorist with much love, passion and dedication and I appreciate meeting people who are vibrating that same spirit. Artisans, who work consciously respecting the materials and traditions. When I first met Melissa Rosenbauer and Thomas Bossert, I felt an instant connection to this creative and inspiring couple behind “espanyolet”, an independent maker of superb handcrafted Mediterranean artisan items for the home, like hand painted vintage linen and hand formed ceramics, all made in Mallorca.
It’s with great enthusiasm that I share with you a bit of their extraordinary journey, how they landed in Mallorca and started to work and sell their amazing cloth & clay collection of espanyolet.
I have to admit that until now, practically all my posts were mainly dedicated to the feminine world. So I decided to bring forth a subject that could appeal to both women and men: S-H-O-E-S.
Us women always get pretty excited about our high heels but we love to see our men go in style too, right? Well, in Palma de Mallorca there is a unique space, dedicated to the most authentic masculine footwear: Join me at MONGE’s shop, located in the historic center of Palma; it is a true paradise of good taste offering luxurious handmade shoes “Made in Mallorca”.
I’m a real shoe enthusiast. They’re definitely one of the most crucial accessories to turn a good outfit, into a perfect one. I often choose which shoes I want to wear first, before I get dressed. I believe this accessory reveals a lot about someone’s personality. Sorry if you catch me staring at your shoes, I’m probably delighted by your shoes.
I really love hats, I always have. I wear them a lot, in winter and in summer. I adore that particular touch they add to my style.
When I was a little girl, back in Cologne, Germany, I used to dream of designing my own collection one day. Instead of making hats, I´m styling and coloring hair. Its obvious that the head is my passion. Now I had the chance to visit a great milliner, probably the best one on Mallorca.
If you love wearing hats just like I do, I strongly recommend visiting MARAT ATELIER in Palma de Mallorca and meet the charming Marta Ortega. Listening to her profound voice and talking about such cool hats, will make you feel like you have to own one of those wonderful hats she has created.
Usually I write about beauty and hair topics. Today, however, I turned a bit towards a sustainable lifestyle, an issue that definitely matters to me. I would like to introduce you to a very interesting project of our dear neighbours “Urban Drivestyle”.
Urban Drivestyle, right around the corner of our hair salon, is a extraordinary bike shop and bike rental, where you can buy and rent the best and most beautiful e-bikes, e-mopeds and e-scooter on Mallorca. But now they also developed their own e-bike, the MOKE! The first e-bike “Made in Mallorca”.
We love being hair stylists! Discovering new trends and improving our skills is great fun. When inspiration meets training we are absolutely ecstatic. Like recently when we traveled to Madrid to visit the La Biosthetique Academy.
Come with me, I will show you a wonderful and proud city that never sleeps. Trends, beauty and city impressions right from the Spanish metrópolis!
