CPOW Uwe Knicket

Who is this “Cool Peep”?  I am Uwe Flade. I grew up in Munich and now live in Berlin for the last 10 years. From directing music videos for bands like Depeche Mode, Rammstein and A-ha I moved on to producing Apps and now created the independent, filter based App Search Engine Knicket.com.

Uwe, what are a few of your favorite things? I am a bigger soccer fan and have a lot of fun this year with Germany winning the world cup. In enjoy Asian food, especially Vietnamese of which we have a great choice over here in Berlin. And I love the App Business. It´s inspiring to see permanently apps coming out that change our life.

When you are alone and you think no one is watching you…what quirky things are you doing? I play speed chess over the internet. It´s called Bullet.

What is your favorite haunt? Porto Rafti, near Athens, Greece. The summer house of my wife´s family. Just beautiful!

Empty your pockets – right now? BE HONEST…what did you find? Keys. Organic cigarettes called Yuma. Earplugs in a box from the ROCK IM PARK Festival.

What is one thing that no one would ever guess about you? That I like chess.

What is playing on iTunes, right now? Arctic Monkeys, NIN, Interpol

Where can we find you next? On the set of the video for the English electro pop band Zoot Woman. Because I still love directing videos.

*NEW PRODUCT ALERT: Calvin Klein Reveal for Her

11 Jul

By Christabelle…@CBellesCloset (*Pure Editorial, Non-Paid Post*sample)

CK REVEAL 2WHO: Calvin Klein

WHAT: Reveal Fragrance for Her – the bottle features two triangular-shaped pieces — a silver-tone for the cap, the other heavy glass containing the juice — that form a pillow square when put together.  Top notes include raw salt signature, pink pepper, white pepper and black pepper; a heart of orris, ambergris and solar accord, with a drydown of sandalwood, cashmeran and vetiver.

EDP sprays in 3 sizes
1 oz. for $50; 1.7 oz. for $70; 3.4 oz. for $90
6.7-oz. body lotion, $38; 6.7-oz. shower gel, $30; 0.3-oz. rollerball, $24

WHEN & WHERE: Sorry USA, Reveal Calvin Klein will launch in September here (so you either need patience or need to head overseas), in 4,291 department and specialty store doors. It will begin rolling into global doors — 130 markets in total — at the end of July.

WHY: We love Calvin Klein’s nose for sensual fragrances…but the ad alone had us sold. The print campaign was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and features Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes and British actor Charlie Hunnam in a heated embrace beside the window of a modern, glass high-rise apartment. As the sun sets behind a dusky skyline, the city is reflected in the window, suggesting a voyeuristic glimpse at a sexy game of seduction.

HOT PRODUCT ALERT: Redken Fashion Waves 07 texturizing sea spray

9 Jul

By Christabelle…@CBellesCloset (*Pure Editorial, Non-Paid Post*sample)
Fashion Waves 7

Redken Fashion Waves 07 texturizing sea spray
Create fresh-from-the-beach waves without ever stepping foot in the sand! Inspired by the casual-cool style of surfers and street style stars,  NEW Fashion Waves 07 texturizing sea spray uses the power of sea salt to give you the most beautiful beach waves with lightweight body and movement. As the tousled, undone texture continues to be a trend seen on celebrities as well as the runways, Fashion Waves 07 is your newest year-round must-have hair product.

WHY WE ARE #OBSESSED WITH IT:
We used this and achieved Gisele Bündchen carefree Brazilian waves in a snap!

Nothing sticky or crunchy about this – the formula is lightweight and allows for sexy movement.

Dries to a matte finish, so you look like you have just stepped off the sands of Ditch Plains beach in Montauk (even when you are walking through midtown on a sweltering summer day). The key ingredient, Magnesium Sulfate, also known as Epsom salt, is water-soluble and absorbs moisture from the air, which adds instant texture to create a tousled beachy look. HAIR SCORE!

HOT TIP: To achieve loose waves in straight hair, and enhanced definition in wavy hair, mist liberally onto damp hair and scrunch. Continue to reapply until desired texture is achieved. Mist fashion waves 07 on damp hair and air-dry, then re-apply throughout the day to re-animate waves

MARK YOUR CALENDAR:
Available: NOW IN REDKEN CERTIFIED SALONS
Get your Fashion Waves 07 and get your  summer look on at one of our fave beach-side salons on the Jersey Shore (ask for Ashley and tell her Christabelle sent you!)
Élan Hair Studio
Address: 2150 Rte 35, Sea Girt, NJ 08750
