The Desert Playground

The Parker Palm Springs, a stylish oasis in the desert.

Palm Springs: There is no better place to stay for a weekend with your best friends. Not far away from Los Angeles, lots of fresh retro hotel chic from the 60s, stiff drinks on the rocks, and sun, sun, sun.

I stay at The Parker and visit a friend’s house who rented the former residence of Frank Sinatra. The Twin Palm estate was Ava Gardner’s and Frank Sinatra’s hideaway. The house has been lovingly restored except for the crack in the bathroom sink, the result of Mr. Sinatra’s rage when he once threw a champagne bottle into it…..

Full Beauty

Illustration by Luis Huber

Munich: The more you know, the better you look. My teacher in terms of beauty questions is the make-up artist Luis Huber, who not only has a great talent to create beautiful make-up but is also a very talented illustrator. He already worked with Claudia Schiffer and Demi Moore and his trademark is true beauty instead of colorful statement make-up.

I took his personal advice for a perfect glow this spring: Before I put on the base I use the glow booster mask, which is based on rose buds, and I leave it on for at least 15 minutes. Then I use the double serum on face and eyes, put it on with a make-up brush in short, strong brush strokes all over the face and neck. This pumps up your face by microcirculation and stimulates your skin. To give your skin already a sun-kissed glow, put some suntan booster in your tinted moisturizing make-up. All products are by French make-up artist byTerry.
If you are looking for professional help, make an appointment today at Luis Huber for his make-up service which includes all your own personal tools and make-up items for a beautiful new look. Get your personal portrait of how you put on your make-up.

Very, very long legs

Exercising at the Reformer

Munich: Stretch your bones and tone your muscles at Club Lindebergs and feel tall and centered this spring. I practice twice a week on the Pilates reformer with Ruben and once a week I have a gyrotonic class with Caroline.

Lindebergs also offers professional nutritional advice and ostheopathy, manual therapy and much more. It is the perfect club for a healthy afternoon while visiting Munich.

Irmas Diary

The amazing pools at Therme Merano

Meran: Spring is the perfect time to modify your general health. In the next days I will lift my spirit, pamper my soul and look into my clear and healthy eyes. My first stop is the THERME MERANO, a paradise for everyone who loves to be in the water and who wants to experience a natural beauty treatment with local herbs, grapes and of course the famous apples from South Tyrolia.

the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.



When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
