I hope you woke up with a smile on your face this morning, because you deserve it! And what is not to smile about – the sun is out, nature is in full blossom and it’s the time of growth and change. While most of you know a lot about my work, travels and my kids, I like to keep the most important person in my life out of my posts and blog. This very special love doesn’t like to be in the lime light and I respect that with all my heart. But sometimes I can’t help wanting to share a just a tiny slice of my happiness with the world, and today is that day: let me talk just a little bit about my husband!
You can say it was love at first sight when we met in Munich. We were together from day one, no games or heartache – it felt like I had finally come home. And that he gave me in Munich. Along with a city full of loyal friends and a new family that makes my heart overflow. Every day I count my blessings and try to let him know how much I appreciate his support for my work, his devotion as a father and the beautiful fun moments we spend together.
He is the reason I can keep going with two kids and two jobs (yes, I started a beautiful new project, a media news company called Glam-O-Meter with amazing ex chief editor of InStyle, Annette Weber) and still feel energized. I can’t help myself, but I always love to look my best for him, and most days, he is the reason I put so much dedication in my hair, make-up and styling.
Having my husband in my life pushes me farther than I could ever get alone, and inspires me to excellence.
In order to pursue excellence, you need products that deliver what they promise and then keep delivering all day long. I don’t have time to do my make-up 2-3 times a day. It needs to go on and stay on. And most important of all, it needs to look amazing when he walks in the door after a long day.
To be honest, over the years finding the right make up has been a bit of a hit-and-miss. There are many great products out there, and some do a great job at one thing or the other. But I would be lost without ‘Double Wear’ foundation by Estée Lauder! All day it looks like freshly applied, is so light I used to fret at the beginning that it was gone, and very natural looking. And if that doesn’t already tick all the boxes, it also survives my daily sport routine!
Because this is too great to keep to myself, Estée Lauder and I have gotten together to gift my readers with the Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser if you add our special code LOVESTORYVK to your order of Double Wear foundation. You can find the link below!
I’m off now to take my kids to the park, and I wish you and your very special person a beautiful day!
