The Pink Ribbon Charity walk was a big success. I had lots of fun with TEAM LUBEX ANTI-AGE with whom I ran already last year. Pink Ribbon Charity Walk is taking place for the ninth time with 5,000 runners from 22 Swiss cantons.
Overall CHF 88,000 were raised and donated to the Swiss Cancer League. The annual breast cancer solidarity event has once again demonstrated the solidarity of the Swiss population with those affected, because the Pink Ribbon Walk is not about their own victory, but about putting a big sign in the fight against breast cancer in the community.
LUBEX anti-age had a booth at the Stadion. There they were handing out samples and gave helpful information about their awesome products. At the booth one had the chance to get a free hand massage treatment with the Lubex anti-age hydration oil. I would have never thought to use this oil for the hands, but indeed it works super well.
The PINK RIBBON CHARITY WALK 2016 was lots of fun. I heard that it was fully booked three days in advance. Thats awesome! In case you wanna run for a good cause next year check pink-ribbon.ch for more information.
this years Art Basel it was raining constantly and it was a real challenge to pick the right clothes for that week. I had plans to wear some really nice summer sandals that I could wear with almost all of my summery dresses. but due to the rain I had to make some drastic changes to my outfit plans. meaning every dress had to find a matching coat, umbrella and shoes that will not be destroyed by the rain.
I was so honored to wear Natascha’s beautiful designer belts: LITTLE FURNITURE ASSEMBLAGE. for three of my outfits I found a matching belt and these are also the looks that I am going to show you in that post.

“have you ever combined a mint green dress with brown? I absolutely love this combo and the colors of the belt work perfectly with the rest of the outfit.”
and now I wanna show you another lovely combination of a bright color with a beige/white houndstooth coat and a very colorful belt by LITTLE FURNITURE ASSEMBLAGE. I was so happy to see that there was exactly the same blue appearing in the belt. together with the pink and red tones this belt is a true statement piece!

last but not least I want to show you different kind of belt. all of the belts are hand made out of leather and are designed to be wrapped either around the waist or hip. next to the belts she also makes very beautiful bangles. you can see me wearing one in the photos below the look. for that very look I chose to wear my new ESPRIT wedges that are now on SALE >>

I got these nice buggers sent to my house and so far I have already tried the SIREN WAVES. a nice textured cream that held my waves throughout the day. I am looking forward to using the other two products. I am sure I will vlog about them via my YOUTUBE channel.
AQUAZINGER – this thing rocks! thank you Catherine for this awesome present. such a nice and easy way to jazz up simple water and infuse it with fruits. my favorite is lemon + mint or mint + raspberries – mmhhmm! the best thing is that this also works with warm beverages – ooh I am already looking forward to make my own CHAI TEA with this bugger. stay tuned.
how does it work?
1. cut tiny pieces of fruit
2. close the lid 3. twist the metal part to the part with the cut fruits and the lid
4. fill it with water, shake it and cool it.
5. ready to drink ; )
more ideas for infused water
watermelon + basil water
kiwi + lime water
raspberry + blackberry water
I wish you all a nice day and I hope you have found this post helpful. this might be the best present for the friend that already has everything. : ) I dunno where she got it from but it is all over the internet. just google AQUAZINGER or visit zinganything.com/recipe for more ideas and recipes.

about the artist and project
1950 Born in Seoul
Graduated from Oriental Painting of Faculty of Art, Chugae Art College
Graducated from Graduate School of Education, Dongguk University
HOW IS IT DONE? “his works were created by reapplying white color on top of ground color applied by using acrylic water color and drawing the outline of mountain using air gun filled with water and regular brush while erasing the water color on surface to reveal the ground”
unfortunately it was very hard to find anything about the artist because not even on the KEUMSAN gallery website there is a link or any additional info about his artwork. I have found that quiet common among asian galleries and artist. AND I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS, why?? It should be the job of the gallery to present the artist with all the information regarding him and his works.
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.
last week I went to the STÜCKI shopping center in basel and it is one of these places where I go with my mom, we always have a nice parkingspot right in front of the entrance and we can talk about private stuff, grab a delicious juice and walk around. there is hardly anybody in the shopping center, ever since it has opened so many shops have closed and half of the second floor is closed.. so it is quiet a drag to see that but really cool to go shopping as you have all the space for yourself and there will be always a free changing room : ) so when I was there last week I saw the big SALE sign at the WE shop and below there was this cool rosa dress for 15 CHF – what a pink bomb bargain! this made me so happy that I had to dance a little bit for you!

the dress i made out of polyester but it feels super soft and comfortable – it is one of these dresses that you put on and you are ready to go. BUT you of course you would have to like pink. for the people from BASEL in case you like the dress – go to the WE shop at STÜCKI they still had a bout 10 to 15 dresses there 🙂 I mean for 15 CHF thats an awesome price!
as you can see I have recovered from my bike accident and now I have to wait for the bruises to heal. excuse my knee and my elbow – I didnt feel like photoshopping it : ) I hope you all have a nice sunday and try to enjoy this long weekend to the max.in case you are bored then have a look at the different categories (fashion / design / beauty / lifestyle / events / art / men / social media) and I am sure you will find some nice things there. enjoy!

awwww I am so happy about all these lovely new makeup things that found their way to my home – some of the them are actually not newly launched, like the brush, the mascara and the lustre drops. so let me tell you what there is new in my make-Up collection:
there are lots of new collections like the TOLEDO and BAO BAO WAN and another one will also soon be on the blog and thats the CINDERELLA one.
I took a video and showed you the products on youtube and that was my first voice over video that I made for my channel. I still got so many things to learn but filming and editing is fun!
I use the LUSTRE DROPS as a highlighter on my cheekbones and browbones in summer I sometimes mix it into my foundation and achieve an allover glow. the 217 brush is one of my favorite brush and it was about time to exchange my super old one that I once bought in a X MAS gift set. when I saw the pigmentation of the lipglass I almost fainted OMG – such a gorgeous pink! as I already told you in my youtube video I love pink lipstick and my two favorite are LICKABLE and GOOD KISSER. I swatched them for you and also swatched the lip pencil and the lipglass next to it.
the pink lip pencil might be a tad too light but I tried it and it is absolutely wearable another lip product that will work perfectly is the casual colour for lip and cheek in the color YOUNG AT HEART. aaww I am ready for spring and ready to wear bright lipstick again!
this is my tiny hope that spring will arrive early this year 🙂 and therefore I have put together this pastel – floral outfit. I have showed you my zalando spring haul a couple of days ago and today I am finally wearing my new grey pumps by tamaris. they are extremly comfy – the first time that I wear tamaris shoes and I am quiet impressed! due to the platform the actual heel is not so tall and one can really feel that when walking and standing for longer periods.
thank you NAVYBOOT for spoiling me with those literally LOVELY shoes and I was already wearing them the whole weekend – I mean are there any better Valentines shoes out there? as I already wrote on FB and you probaly realized that I didnt have any special Valentines Day thing on my blog is due to the fact that I dont believe in such thing – every day should be a Valentines Day <3
so back to the <3 heart sneakers <3 – I have a humming melody of the cheesy song “I put on my shoes and I am ready for the weekend” in my head and thats how I feel with these. they look fancy and special and the best thing is that they are extremly comfortable. let me tell you that I actually wanted to first wear them with jeans but this morning I was not in a jeans mood and therefore the shoes had to fit my black and white skirt outfit – and I think they did very well.

I got the sneakers for Valentines Day and I really like them and thats why I show them here. lots of love! <3
yay – thank you so so much Carlita’s Collezione for sending me this lovely rosa leather jacket – it is perfect and totally made my day.
back in the days at the designbox (read more >> here) Carlita’s Collezione had her booth next to mine and thats how I found out about her gorgeous collections and awesome surf trips to Bali Indonesia. in case you wanna be super up to date follow her Instagram account!
“The love of surfing brought me again to Indonesia and then out of a dream came an idea and then the will to make this idea come true, became a reality. For a long time my biggest wish was to combine my creativity with sport activities and economics. Currently I live and work mostly in Indonesia. All leather goods as well as the bikinis are designed by me and carefully crafted in Bali. It is important to me that I am involved in most production steps, which means I actively participate in choosing the leather, the accessories and other materials on site. In addition, it is a matter of concern for me that my products are made under regular working conditions and in a pleasant work environment. These requirements meet both families with whom I work with. My products should relay the joy of life in Indonesia and conjure a smile in ones everyday life. For each item sold CHF 1.00 will go directly to SurfAid (www.surfaidinternational.org). SurfAid is a non-profit humanitarian organization that has set itself the goal of improving the health, well-being and self-confidence of people who one meets surfing in remote areas.”
I can highly recommend to check out her shop and I am sure you will fall in love with at least something and dont blame it on me when you end up spending all your money – hahahahahahahaha! xx
today I wanna show you something nice of course like every day 🙂 so let’s talk about the it-color PINK! lately I have seen so many pink things from makeup to accessories. I also found this pink wool cardigan on SALE and it goes perfectly with my pink lips and nails.
ALESSANDRO striplac RADIANT ORCHID
maccosmetics cremesheen LUST EXTRACT
this year’s trend or it-color will be pink 🙂 I think it is a bit silly to name a year color. for me one color would not be enough as I love to wear bright clothes. last year’s color was RADIANT ORCHID – so in fact I am actually wearing last year’s color on my nails 🙂
now I wanna continue with the question and answers
#what’s your everyday fragrance?
mmmhhmm I gotta name more than one as it’s impossible for me to only have one. I often use the CHLOÉ original or the MODERN MUSE by Estée Lauder. I also got the CHLOÉ love story and the MODERN MUSE CHIC by Esteé Lauder but I don’t wear them so often – I rather use them for special occasions.
#what’s your favorite nailpolish color?
RED RED RED <3 I love red nails!
#which skin care products are in TOP 3?
KIEHL’S midnight recovery concentrate
ELIZABETH ARDEN 8h lip balm
SISLEY pore minimizer
#which beauty products are in TOP 3?
maccosmetics LADYBUG> lipstick
ESTÈE LAUDER double wear foundation
CLINIQUE sun-kissed bronzing powder
more questions to answer an other day, right? I hope you all have a nice day – HAPPY WEDNESDAY! xx
