as every year it was a blast to be invited by VITRA for the summerparty during ART BASEL. look at the lovely decoration – so nice! there was cool music and lots of nice art and design to see. there are many different buildings inside the VITRA campus, the newest is by SANA. my favorite one is the showroom by HERZOG & DE MEURON but I also like the one by TADAO ANDO. this years entry badge was a piece of fabric that the tied around our wrists. a nice idea but so far the metall bands were my favorite – I still have them and collected the different colors from other friends that were there.
the food was delicious and there was a nice vegetarian alternative. my favorite was the couscous salad – mmmhhhmm, can I please have one more?! and the ice cream was a touch of heaven on earth too bad I did not check by whom the catering was..
I dunno if you can remember but a couple of years ago there was a bug attack during VITRA PARTY and I was telling some friends about that and literally 5 minutes later the first bug was there and he was followed by friends. I jinxed it 🙂 sorry for that but again it was fun to see all the people hide and run from the almost blind flying bugs.. after one hour the bugs were gone, ouff!
all the friends in the house – eehm at the VITRA PARTY!
thank you Wilpert, Mo, Cristian, Esther and Fleur – it was super nice!
today is fasnachts tuesday also called kids fasnacht and to be very honest I am super excited that fasnacht is over tomorrow. I live in the city center and therefore I hear the piccolo day and night 🙁 if there were just drummers it would be a totally different story.
so let me get back to my question: cats or hats? the internet is full of funny cute cat pictures and I am sure that you could look at different pictures for months and you would not have been able to see them all 🙂 I am a hat person and I can not get enough hats. my most favorite hat is swiss-made by RISA and I could easily wear it every day.
Elvire Thouvenot-Nitzan made this lovely illustration for the blog and unfortunately I can not link you to her page as she has none but in case you are interested please contact me and I will forward your messages to her or write her a direct email to elvire (at) bluewin.ch for inquiries.
instead of a funny cat I wanna show you another hat outfit wearing my lovely beige C&A hat, besides that I am wearing my lovely skirt from le MOUTON a 5 PATTES – my beloved Vintage FENDI bag – my suede booties from NAVYBOOT – my Vintage BALLY jacket and my H&M gloves and shirt!
CHRISTMAS is around the corner! not my favorite time of the year but something I have learned to deal with as after every winter there comes spring and thats my biggest hope and wish. let the sun shine, the flowers bloom and the skirts be short! so back to my wishlist for christmas. I have found many nice things that I wanna show you.

I got these two funny looking things the other day and it took a moment until I realized what they are for. so lets get started: the blue piece is by FOREO and it is called ISSA the revolutionary toothbrush to care for your smile. the ISSA is available at GLOBUS. the red cupcake is a vibrator by SHIRI ZINN, that of course also cares about your smile and pleasure. ha, do you see what I see. so funny that the toothbrush looks more phallic than the actual vibrator in cupcake disguise. these are my two new electronical gadgets and you can read more about them here:
I received the L’OCCITANE en Provence Fleur D’Or Acacia parfum, showergel and handcream and I can tell you that I absolutely love the fragrance. A couple weeks ago I took this photo and uploaded it to my instagram and ever since I have been using the showergel everyday. So I will definitely repurchase this kit.
Incase you have not started shopping for christmas this might be a perfect idea for a beloved friend. In Basel, Switzerland the Shops will be open on Sunday this weekend – just incase you are from this area 🙂
