such a nice way to start the week – I received so much love and wanna share some with you! thanks for being here. xx
I did it. I went BIG. not that size matters in general – but here it does 🙂 I found this lovely piece at the ADVOLAT webshop and was thinking about it for the last couple of weeks before I ended up getting it. Cristian has the ADVOLAT CITY watch and I once stole his watch for a day and really enjoyed wearing a big watch. so this one the FLIEGER 2 is in fact slightly bigger than Cristians one.
fall is here and I am getting my wardrobe for the season together. something that I really love, shopping and mixing and matching new things with older stuff. I had such a good time lately and was invited to soo many nice places and was able to do so many awesome things. thank you life for bringing nice things my way! I have had a rough start into the year. some of you may know already. I was in the hospital over christmas 2013 because I have lost my sense of taste. anyway, after weeks of high dosed cortison I was able to taste something again but also had to deal with a rather negative diagnose: MS – multiple sclerosis! first reaction shock – wtf! I have just arranged to start my own business with my blog and I have already cancelled my job at Herzog & de Meuron that time. was that the biggest mistake ever? well it turns out NO it was not a mistake to quit my job and start my own business because like this I can work according to me and my personal situation. I have hired a personal trainer in order to keep my muscles fit and healthy. I will soon introduce you to my trainer and the exercices we do. in the photos above you can see me running in the rain and I hope I will be able to do that for a very very long time! stay positive and wish me lots of positive things. a positive mind can fight many challenges and one of them is my personal fight against my own disease!
I have already showed you this outfit before but not this photo and I felt I wanna share it with you guys here too. you might wonder why I have such a big smile in my face, hmm, well, it is because I am so happy about my new MIU MIU sunglasses. they are perfect for the autumn sun. I love the shape and color.

one of my favorite looks – the bronzed sunkissed look. I can wear this everyday and never get tired of it. so one of my newer bronzing powders is the SUNKISSED by CLINIQUE and I gotta tell you that I am very much in love with this bugger. the product comes with a brush but I rather use one of my brushes to apply it. the brush that comes with the product can be very handy for short trips where you dont want to pack too many makeup products. in case u wanna shop it now – here is the link «
as I use bronzing powder almost every day I have quiet a variety of different ones. most of them are by M.A.C. 🙂 but I also have bronzingpoweders by BOBBI BROWN. TOM FORD. CLINIQUE. CATRICE. WET’N WILD and CLARINS.
whats your favorite bronzing product?

aww, I love this simple and chic black and white look. her blue eyes and red lips stick out beautifully like this. she is wearing 3 essential key pieces:
black skinny jeans
every wardrobe should have these 3 things as they make it so easy to form an outfit around. you can always wear a good pair of black flats with everything. the same with the black skinny jeans – it will always work, either with heels, a blazer or with a cashmere sweater and of course the same with master key piece the white blouse!
ROST & GOLD (zurich, switzerland)
this was the place where I immediately felt like home – such a cosy place with lots and lots of very nice things to see. I only captured a few things with my camera – there is way more to see. so for the people who will travel to zurich I think this place is a MUST!
what am I talking about and why am I showing you a picture of my nails and lip? when I say DREAM TEAM I mean the new gorgeous fall collection products by ESTÉE LAUDER – the matte PURE COLOR 04 HEART BEET nailpolish and the PURE COLOR ENVY 460 BRAZEN lipstick. both are beautiful dark burgundy berry colors and work perfectly together!

fall winter collection 2014
TOLERIANE ULTRA – this is the most sensitive makeupremover that I have ever tried – wow – slightly impressed about this product! it is a gentle product for very sensitive skin and therefore each dose is filled in a little plastic drop/container – lots of trash but I would still repurchase it as it is just simply perfect for my couperose skin!
HYDRAPHASE INTENSE LEGERE – a very very light but still hydrating skincare for everyday – apply day and night and it is perfect for sensitive to normal skin. I have not used this product yet, so I can not tell you whether I liked it or not. I will try it in the next couple of weeks and will hopefully get back to you about it.
last night was the COS store opening in Zurichs Niederdörfli. the event was a blast! lots of fashionable, stylish people were invited and were given 30% discount for the whole COS collection. thats when the nightmare 🙂 began!
last nights catering was directly sent from heaven! I didnt try anything because I am very picky with food – but my dear friend Dushka volunteered and tried all the different dishes and all of them were not only really delicious but also very creative and looked stunning!
at COS I found something for me and something for Cristian – both sweaters in burgundy. If you didnt know berry and burgundy colors will be HUGE this fall/winter season. the items will be soon on the blog 🙂
more photos from the event will be uploaded to my instagram and FB page
This year 22 international fashion bloggers were invited to the Zalando Summer House (#zalandosummerhouse). From the 28th until the 30th of August 2014, they stayed at the wonderful castle- Schloss Herzfelde in the Uckermark an hour north of Berlin. Inspired by ‘La Dolce Vita’ of the 1950s the house was decorated with candy coloured furniture, contained a café with an Italian barista, a big garden with retro games and DIY stations that gave the bloggers time to relax, be creative and enjoy the good life.
“Orient Express is a working person’s cafe on Badaro Main, serving specialty coffee, veggie salads and gourmet sandwiches to the tasteful crowd of Beirut. Open early morning till late evening during the week in a relaxed atmosphere, the café turns into a more upbeat gathering place on Friday and Saturday night. Held by a few young passionates, this no-frills place will draw smiles on more that a few faces.”
my new favorite shampoo and conditioner – bain Fluidealiste and fondant Fluidealiste – make my hair very smooth and silky. I use them both every time I wash my rather dry and color-treated hair, which is about every second or third day. I have not used the Fluidissime styling that often yet but it claims to protect the hair up to 230°C – wow, freaking hot!
