Let's go BCN

A couple of days ago I came home from the beautiful Barcelona, where I went with my boyfriend. It was our first time going there, but we will definitely go back since Barcelona is one of the most incredible cities I have ever been. I highly recommend traveling to BCN in winter/spring, like we did. The weather was super nice; so warm and sunny, but I can imagine that it must be really hot and crowded during summer. Anyway, I thought it might be helpful for some of you to share some must-see places:

Why you should grow out your natural hair color now

Before I start to chat, let me tell you that I always loved dying my hair. I started dying my hair a dark chocolate brown when I was a teen, then I had some blond highlights and finally, I went to a light blond about two years ago and stuck to it. I always had so much fun by changing my hair color just in a few hours. I never had drastic changes to my hair, never went for platin blond or black hair, which just would not suit me at all. I never dyed my hair blue or pink. But, and that was the point where I decided to grow out my natural hair color, I had been dying my hair for about eight years and totally forgot about my natural hair color! I never dyed my hair because I did not like the color, but always found it super boring. I was no blonde, but no brunette either. Over 15 months ago I went to my hair stylist, bringing photos when I was 15 years old since I did not know my exact hair color, which is super sad, right? ☺ It came out too dark, it was a more light brown than a dark blond. After growing out my hair for a few inches, I got some highlights to cover the roots and the harsh line.

Almost a Love Story

The first time I smelled the floral sensual scent I instantly felt in love with you. Orange flower and the scent of stephanotis jasmine, which is often used in wedding bouquets, feel like the flush of new love. You are a symbol of love with your design of a lock that I have seen on the famous Pont Des Arts bridge in Paris. You are my LOVE STORY, my all-time favorite perfume by ChloĆ©. 
Love Story long has been my fragrance for dates, of course choose to wear it on Valentine's Day. Which scent are you wearing on this special day today? What fragrance is your epitome of love?

The Importance of Drinking Water for your Beauty

As a hydrologist I swear by drinking water for maintaining healthy. Water as the main component of  our body helps keep the body well-hydrated. This is essential since almost every cell in the body needs water to function properly. Our brain is strongly influenced by hydration status. Water reduces headaches and migraines, which are often caused by dehydration.

Insta Recently

It is time to share some recent photos that I posted on my Instagram for everyone who is not following me there (if you want to it is @itsnatib ☺) since it has been a while. December and January have been so busy and I am so glad that I finally have more time to just get things done and, of course, to travel! I love traveling. I am going to Barcelona pretty soon. I have never been there, any tips for places to go & eat?☺

How to make a Blogger work with you: A Guide for Brands

Bloggers and brands work closely with each other. That is no secret. As a fashion and beauty blogger I love to work with skincare brands or fashion labels. Collaborations are fun, help me to discover new brands or products and give me the ability to reach new blog readers when my cooperation partners share my reviews on their social media. Brands usually reach out for cooperations through emails. However, recently I got so many impersonal mails with collaboration requests that were just annoying. 
Dear brands, you have to follow a few rules to make a blogger work with you! Here are some examples of mistakes made + requests I immediately rejected.
