In these trying times it’s even more important to spread love and support your local network. as well as looking after your physical and mental health.
So this morning I visited my friend Ramona, she is a trained cosmetician and also has a degree in podiatry and massage therapy. She also does hair removal, pedicure & manicure, facial care, and ultrasound sessions.
I have written about Ramona before on my blog and I can highly recommend her massages. The hot stone massage is a lovely way to completely relax and detach from stress and worries.

FOOT REFLEX ZONE MASSAGE https://youtu.be/VcdSOVYINPg
I also had the pleasure to get a foot reflex zone massage the other day and it was such a relaxing experience. By massaging the feet the whole body is affected and therefore it feels like a full body massage.
This morning I tried something new: a deep tissue massage with suction to restore the normal, healthy appearance of the thighs, buttocks, torso, and other parts of the body affected by cellulite.
In my case we focused on the belly to help contour it’s former pre pregnancy form. This treatment needs at least 10 sessions although results can already be visible after the first time. The reason why it’s important to repeat the treatment is for your cells to regularly get the input and create some sort of tissue/muscle memory.

I live in Basel and therefore I am a local who can give you lots of tips about Basel. especially during the Art Basel week we tend to have long days and long nights and then its very nice to treat oneself with something nice. so, when I have a rough day or my feet hurt from being on them all day long I like to get myself a footmassage or a pedicure, depending on my time schedule. I can absolutely recommend Ramona Gysi and her salon RG Cosmetic & Massage.

in case you need a hair cut I can also recommend a very nice salon called WINTER COIFFURE its located behind AESCHENPLATZ at Lange Gasse 28. Stefanie Winter is cutting my hair for a very long time and I blogged about my experiences several times before.
Stefanie Winter has worked in the coiffure industry for years and stands for styling expertise at the highest level. she opened her first salon in Basel at Lange Gasse 28 in Basel. the approximately 80 square-foot facility is located directly behind Aeschenplatz. Stefanie Winter is coiffeuse out of passion and her success is based on the unique feeling for people and style.
these are some of my favorite YOUTUBERS and I will share new favorites every now and then. I have been following these for more than 2 years now and I watch almost every video they share. as you may know I have a channel too, in case you have not checked it yet, please do so now >> https://www.youtube.com/user/isawsomethingnice/videos <<
if you have a stressful day and need something to cheer you up I have exactly the right thing for you. treat yourself and experience a scalp massage. I did that a couple of weeks ago at COIFFURE WINTER in Basel and it was awesome. they offer an ayurvedic scalp massage and they have different oils and waters depending on your hair and scalp type.
awww how can I describe it, it is just wonderful! they have great skills and know exactly how to relax their clients. I was asked if I wanted my feet/legs up and if I wanted the chair to massage my back during the ayurvedic scalp massage. and I think thats all I can say, it was awesome and I can only recommend to check it out.
a couple of months ago I changed my hair color and got this really cool bronde/ombre look but after a week of vacation in sicily at the beach my blonde ends were almost breaking off, thats why I had to say goodbye and cut the blonde parts off. now it loks really cool too as it is more of an ombre look now with a much more natural looking gradient. sorry for the washed out photos I took them with the SAMSUNG galaxy alpha phone soon my phone history will be online and there you can read all the pros and cons of the last 3 phones I was using. this photo below shows me right after the massage and as you can see I am very happy and relaxed. : )
aaww.. I got a LUSH box for my birthday and I am on cloud number nine! thank you Jaswant! I was already a LUSH fan before and used many different soaps and lotions before. but now I got some new things that I really love!
what was in my box?

Sugar Scruba skin cocktail of sugar, grated ginger and fresh fennel to liven up tired skin and sort out any lumpy bumby bits. get your body nice and wet, smooth all over and rinse off!
The OLIVE branch shower gel
