Last week I was invited by Maison Esthétique to try their services so yesterday I went to do my manicure,next week I'm gonna try a new hairstyle. The salon it's very cozy and relaxing,flows of positive energy were all around me.
At first I was a bit afraid because I saw some spooky looking pliers(I know Halloween it's coming) that Irina prepaired for me.She uses a pliers technique wich I didn't saw,until now,in any ro salon. After the weird pliers moment, I had one of the best manicure ever and I really mean it,I don't write this just because...
I even got a hand massage and Irina used many products,my manicurist only use spirit.It was like a nails&hands treat,O.P.I cuticle cream&oil another,Essie smoothie for the massage,calcium gel and another thingy which I don't remember.
Irina does nails paintings too, from trees to landscapes and the "eye" nail was so funny,you know...fashioninmyeyes:)
Four of my ro readers will get the chance to try 4 of their treats:)
Erika Hendrix is an independent fashion designer from Germany and I fell in love with her designs.Her unique pieces blends with every style and her Spring/Summer 2010 Collection - Baby, you're the ginchiest! it's set to debut February 2010. The 50's theme is illustrated throughout the collection by the use of bows & ribbons, round collars, poodle skirts, and rompers, with a distinct motif that cohesively brings every piece together.
How did you get started fashion designing? I started sewing in 2002. In 2005 i started my label ERIKA HENDRIX and started selling one-of-a-kind shirts to consigment stores all over Germany. After about a year i expanded to shorts, dresses, skirts. And in fall 2008 I brought out my first collection. I opened up my own store in Feb 09 in Mannheim, Germany.
Where do you get your inspiration? Everyday life really. Anything can be inspiring, esecially if i am not looking for it.
Tell us more about your latest collection.
My SS10 collection is inspired by the 50s, rock'n'roll and pin-ups. Its sexy without showing too much skin. Its a limited collection because every piece is handmade by me. Sizes run XS-L and i use mainly cotton jersey/knit. Who are your ideal customers? I dont have an ideal customer in mind. Anyone can find something at ERIKA HENDRIX.Anyone that wants to feel and look good at the same time can wear ERIKA HENDRIX.
Do you have a favorite piece? I have so many but my absolute favorite from the SS10 collection is the leopard/mint dress that has an empire waist and a cute round collor and bow. My favorite piece right now is the Plaid Circle Dress, its so comfy and it looks so good!
How do you see yourself in 10 years? I dont want to look ahead so far but i definetley want my brand to be known everywhere. Everyone needs to know about ERIKA HENDRIX - how comfy and wearable the clothes are!

I didn't post anything for Street chic series lately, because I didn't had the chance to take any pictures.This will change,my uni is an endless source of street chic I just need to have more courage to ask the girls to let me take their pictures.
Here is Romina,I just loved her peacock feather earrings.
I never was a eyelashes person and when Janet from Revlon contacted me to try their new eyelashes I was a bit sceptical,me.. false eyelashes,not quite the right combo.Being clumsy when it comes to this certain items I was afraid not to glue my eyes(don't laugh my grandfather did it but not with eyelashes glue),the fact is that some of the eyelashes I recieved have self adhesive technology so no glue for me.
I'm gonna try the glue ones soon just need the occassion.
I tried the intensifying ones and I they are awesome,the applying is simple,at first I did managed to stick them a little high(ooopsi) after that I resolved the problem.And don't worry about anyone noticing,it looks like you've used black eyeliner if they are applied correct.The pics are taken in different days because I used a pair several times.
They are latex free so no swollen eyes for anybody and they are available at Cvs,Ulta and Drugstore.com
Because I want one of you to try them and see how fun they are I'm giving away two sets,one self adhesive for defining and one for intesifying.
