today is my blogs birthday and it turns FIVE! crazy how time goes by fast.. I had an amazing time showing you nice things and will continue to do so <3 lots of things happened in the last FIVE YEARS. I met so many nice people and visited nice places – thank you so much for being YOU and thank you for being part of the ISSN JOURNEY! cheers to the next FIVE YEARS! X
OOH DEARS – last night I had so much fun at the M.A.C. bloggers event at HILTL in Zurich.
I met wonderful swiss bloggers and memorized some very useful makeUp tricks. The focus of the workshop was lashes – yeah, lashes became really big these days – especially the fakelashes. I noticed that I have seen way more women wearing fakelashes on a daily base than I did in earlier times. So there is a trend for big expressive lashes. People who know me they know that I very rarley use mascara myself 🙂 but for special occasion I love to wear a dramatic eyemakeup but for my everyday look I will always go with a bright lip instead of a dramatic eyelook.
I was sitting next to FABIENNE from swissmakeupblog.chand across from MIA miaslittlecorner.blogspot.ch and LARISSA from www.laruemarie.com and there was MELANIE a M.A.C. makeUp artist which helped me a lot. thanks girls! It was a blast!
On the way back to Basel I was traveling with lovely MIA and I asked her this question: “If you can only take one makeUp product with you – what would you pick?” She thought about it for a moment and answered “concealer” – without concealer I look tired. I think its so interesting to get to know other girls opinion about their faces and makeUp looks. If I had to answer the question I asked her I would of course pick a bright lipstick because I look very boring with no color in my face 🙂
thank you M.A.C. for the lovely presents – I will soon show you what I got and will also share some amazing news regarding M.A.C. – all I can say for now is RIRI <3
I took a lot of notes from the helpful tricks all the bloggers shared and I will soon post a M.A.C. bloggers events tricks special and share all my notes with y’all. stay tuned! xx
Christmas is ahead – are you in the mood yet?
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 🙂
I would be totally in the mood for this outfit right now.
mellow pastel tints mixed with grey and white! lets see if I can find something similar in my wardrobe 🙂 stay tuned!
btw – I also used this photo to update my facebook page cover photo!
have you checked me on FB yet? do it now 🙂
how I wear it these days..
well.. to be honest, this top looks best with nothing but a blazer on top
or solely by itself, but its winter and I live in swizerland so thats why I would wear it for an indoor occasion like a gallery opening or a dinner these cold days. the front part of the top is leather and the back is a sheer vicose fabric. also the back is longer than the front – perfect to wear with leggings. I profited from the huge zalando SALE for the zalando switzerland birthday and landed an amazing bargain! I can not wait to wear it in spring – combined with a 7/8 zipperjeans and sandals!
