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!

BASEL, 15-20 JUNE 2015
thank you all for making my BIRTHDAY so special – last nights party was a blast!
diana, the cake was awesome and it had “I SAW SOMETHING NICE” written in chocolate powder on top – too bad I didnt take a better photo.. and my mom, she made a cake that matched my dress, unbelieveably nice…
aww, I need a moment to process all that joy and happiness. I will write a bit more about the party in tomorrows blogpost. stay tuned.
pumps L’AUTRE CHOSE
a very simple but chic party look! wear some embellished shorts with a simple white or black longsleeve top and pair it with your favorite black heels – ready is your party outfit! I had such a good birthday yesterday. thank you all for making this day unforgettable for me! I will go thru all the photos of last nights party and I will check if there is anything to share with you – all I know for sure is that it was a blast and that there was loads of delicious cakes!
getting ready for tonight
dresscode: BOHEMIAN – thats a direction of look that I really like either for summer or for fall. today is definitely NOT the perfect summer day but at least its not raining. so right now I am trying to put together an outfit with a bohemian touch. I found a fancy green aztec skirt at C&A that I might wear with boots and a hat. although for me a bohemian summer look has to be a maxidress with sandals, flowers in the hair and golden jewelry – thats it. BUT tonight its going to be 10 to 13 degrees C and I will be freezing in my summer outfit – thats why I will probably go for a rather warm looking bohemian summer outfit. anyway. I am really excited to see the new summer collection and enjoy the music, drinks and snacks! of course I will bring my camera in order to report everything for you guys. stay tuned! xx
RODIAL – my first experience with RODIAL products.
In the goodiebag of the L’OFFICIEL Schweiz launch party there was this SUPER ACIDS X-treme hangover mask by RODIAL. I have never ever used their products and I had to google the brand. RODIAL is a London based and was founded 1999 by Maria Hatzistefanis.
so anyway, I was curious enough to give this little green bugger a try. When I had dinner with my BF last night I just suggested to watch a movie later and put on this new clay mask. I was expecting nothing other but a big huge: “NO F****** WAY”.. but to my biggest surprise I heard: SURE, why not.
ooh, wow, that was a surprise! so we did it. we washed our faces and applied the SUPER ACIDS X-treme hangover mask by RODIAL and waited for it to be dry in order to scrub it off our faces. After 15 minutes the mask was dry and we removed it. I took some super funny photos of us with the face mask but I am not allowed to show you the photos 🙂 I guess it was enough for him that he was willing to try the mask!
so how was it?
It tingles and burns a bit when applying, so I think its nothing for very sensitive skin. As I have couperose on my cheeks with very sensitive skin I didnt apply any mask on my cheeks but still I had a burning feeling on my skin. The mask contains 75 ml and I am sure it will last for another 3 to 5 masks. But I am not sure if I will ever use this mask again as it is very strong and I think its too much acid for my sensitive dry skin. I will stick to my creamy masks that I have loved and used before. (eg. Sislyey Paris, Ananné..) so to sum it up, this mask is something for rather oily skin and nothing for sensitive skin.
Have you tried this RODIAL mask before? How did you like it? Would you recommend this mask? Please leave a comment below. thanks. xx
YANA RAY fashion goes #LFW
I had the honor to wear a YANA RAY dress and coat and for the fashiontvbroadcast party at Café de Paris in London. I met amazing people at the party, shout out to Charise – too bad I missed the Philippine Embassy fashion presentation at the International Fashion Showcase during #LFW but it was very nice to meet you, your friend and husband.
The YANA RAY coat is a heavy winter coat with a perfect shape and length. The inner side is a dark white and the outter side is a dark beige – a perfect color combination. Together with the white blue dress, my bordeaux hat from H&M and my COS clutch it made a wonderful outfit.

PAMPER YOUR FEET –
these are my favourite products!
do something good for your hard working feet!
either I use them before and after a party – like the “SCHOLL Blister Protection” the “SCHOLL Crystal Ice Spray” and “THE BODY SHOP Cooling Peppermint Foot Lotion” especially after a night out dancing in heels I really feel like treating my feet with something good!
SUNDAY is my pampering day! xx

G O L D & B L A C K –
a simple way to dress up!
are you atteding a party or do you need an outfit for a glamorous moment?
you can not go wrong with mixing black and gold or other metalic shades like copper silver.. to make this outfit more edgy I chose a rather chunky necklace. The great thing about these kind of outfits is that you can wear them all year around. In summer with sunglasses and in fall and spring with a cardigan and black blazer or leatherjacket and in winter with a black woolcoat! enjoy mixing!
