No Chance for Headaches: Our Glamorous Hangover Cure
We don’t know whether Holly Golightly had thrown one of her wild parties just a few hours before. One thing, however, is certain: she looked stunning as she opened the door for Paul Varjak in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, wearing a sleep mask and a men’s shirt. No sign of the dreaded hangover look, which makes you fear facing even your own bathroom mirror the day after. Looking as stylish as Mrs. Golightly after New Year’s Eve? That’s a goal we can easily achieve, thanks to these little helpers! Let’s raise a glass of champagne to that!
Jogging bottoms by Allude
Loungewear has long ceased to be associated with washed-out t-shirts and baggy trousers. These days it is as stylish as a pretty suit or an elegant wool coat. Karl Lagerfeld once claimed that sweatpants are a sign of defeat and loss of control of one’s life. We certainly can’t agree with that at the sight of this elegant model by Allude, made of finest cashmere wool.
Bath oil by Susanne Kaufmann
The next spa is too far away and the cold winter air does its part to keep you from venturing outside and making your way there voluntarily? Relaxing is easier with Susanne Kaufmann’s bath oil, which transforms your bathroom into your very own private spa in just a few seconds. Precious oils of lavender, ylang-ylang and pachtouli make your skin soft and smooth. Lie back, put on your favourite CD and relax. Highlight: To slip into some wonderfully soft loungewear made of cashmere after the bath.
Hot-water bottle by Allude
Hot-water bottles in gaudy colours and dizzying patterns are best quickly and inconspicuously hidden under the covers or simply left in the drawer. The one by Allude, however, which is made of soft cashmere and will keep you wonderfully warm, is much too beautiful to be hidden from sight. We recommend using special cashmere detergent and conditioner for each wash to ensure many years of pleasure from your hot-water bottle. The natural ingredients of these care products are particularly gentle and mild on the skin.
Himbeeren mit Sahne im Ritz – Zelda Fitzgerald
Champagne, loud music and canapés – by the end of New Year’s Eve, we’ve usually had our fill. Those who don’t want to leave behind this dazzling world just yet can simply slip into the role of the observer. This is best done with the stories from the collection “Himbeeren mit Sahne im Ritz” by Zelda Fitzgerald, who’ll whisk you away to 1920s New York City –it’s not only a great read, but also better for your well-being, because here it is only the protagonists who get tipsy from time to time.
Tea Delight by Detox Delight
Christmas cookies, holiday roast, even more cookies … What sounds quite tempting at the beginning of December is, with the beginning of the new year, often more associated with a bad conscience than genuine enjoyment. Tea Delight by Detox Delight will help you find balance in the new year and can also be integrated perfectly into a cleansing program. Organic herbs such as coriander, nettles and cornflower blossoms have detoxifying effects, while cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar levels – in case your desire for gingerbread and chocolate once again seems impossible to resist.
Silk sleep mask by Slip
You mainly wear them where you do not want to be disturbed, for example, on long-haul flights, on the train or when the hotel’s panoramic windows let in more light than is desired. Why is it still worthwhile to include a sleep mask in your daily evening ritual? This one by Slip, made of delicate mulberry silk, protects the skin and maintains its moisture. And along the way it also makes your hair look beautiful, because the smooth natural material reduces split ends and tangles.
Hooded sweater by Allude
On some days you just want to hide out under the blankets: for example, if you had one drink too many on New Year’s Eve or if the party photos might just as well hang in the Hall of Shame. In the long run, however, this would be rather boring. The more elegant solution, if the feeling comes over you once again, unexpected and without warning? A hooded sweater made of cashmere with an elegant rib knit. Put on the sweater, put up the hood – shut out the world. At least for a brief moment.
Face mask by Nannette de Gaspé
Everyone knows gel and moisturizing masks or pastes. But what about dry masks? Nannette de Gaspé dispenses entirely with moisture in the production of her masks. Instead, the entrepreneur uses a rich mix of anti-aging ingredients, which are released through a gentle massage and penetrate deep into the skin. Each of the masks can be re-used up to three times, and with their subtle floral patterns they convey a genuine haute couture feeling.
Just one Drop – Radharani
Radharani spent four years in India. During this time she was inspired by the cultural impressions and influences, especially for her debut album “Just One Drop”. Influences of trip-hop and ambiance blend with spoken mantras and Indian sounds. The 9 songs are just as suitable for yoga and meditation as for relaxing in the bathtub, on the couch or in the bed. In the editorial department of Allude, at least, “Gopala” is playing non-stop. Omm.
