NAILED!!!!!

There seem to be a whole “nail-movement” happening at the moment, and in the weekend I found myself in the middle of it! Somehow a paradox since I was always so bad at taking care of my own nails, at least having them done professionally I never even considered. I never liked these obviously made nails,looking so unpractical and painful, and I always wondered how one is expected to remotely function normally with claws like that!? To be brutally honest, this is still my opinion! I don`t like too much access and will still never consider doing this to my own nails, but I have recognized nail art as a happening part of fashion, art and culture. I went to see “Dzine Imperial Nail Salon” in Galerie Henrik Springmann. Exhibited was the work of Dzine, alias Carlos Rolon, and  his book “Nailed” that looks at the history of nail design across cultures and documenting contemporary nail art. As part of the exhibition, he had invited from the UK, Sophy Robson, a nail artist in her own right, working with the great nail polishes from MAC! The Sophy Robson brand was established in 2005. She works at the high end of fashion with designers as Vivienne Westwood, Giles Deacon, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs at Luis Vuitton on their campaigns and shows. Amongst her celebrity fans are Kate Moss and Lara Stone. Also featured in Elle and Vogue, Sophy has her own salon in London`s Kings Road, where funky stylish nails meets quality service.

Personal Training: initium by Micha Østergaard

We have all been taken by storm by former Danish Olympic swimmer Micha! Making it her goal and business to help people get fit as a personal trainer. She made getting fit suddenly so easy and fun for all of us! Her genuine interest in people`s health and well-being, and her constant support to get you where you would like to be! Finding back to the childish joy in moving and being active outdoors again. Help you in the search for that initiative that has been well kept away after too many long days in the office and daily life and routine. Finding a rhythm to get you where you want to be, without risking your life thinking there are shortcuts like going under the knife or other easy temptations. A general rule in life; “sorry Mac”, but there are no such thing as a short cut! Thats why achieving feels so good! We made a little “fashion-run” about town, reminding me again, how much fun working out can be:-)  I`ll let Micha do the rest of the talking:

“Before I start telling you about who I am, where I am from and what fitness means to me, I would like to make one thing very clear about my fitness concept:

My number one goal is to make women happy about their bodies. To set a (healthy) goal, achieve it and wear the body with pride!

To me that is one close step to complete happiness. A kind of mental and physical freedom.

Es gibt einen ein sehr witziges und festliches Gefühl. Hier zeigen wir Dir einen ersten Tipp aus der Kollektion. Wenn Du etwas Einfaches trägst, dann kann es lustig sein, es mit diesen tollen Farben und etwas Glitter auf den Nägeln aufzuwerten. Dazu geeignete Make-Up Tipps sind in Arbeit… :o)))
