yes! the time has come – I am getting ready for spring and summer! and this year I have found some nice little helpers for my skin. in summer my skin is more exposed to sunlight and I am wearing nice short dresses and I wanna be sure to have a very nice, soft and even skin without any redness, stretchmarks or dents! so therefore I am drinking a lot of tea and water to get rid off any toxines and waste! that is step one and very crucial for a healthy diet and a fit body! I am a vegetarian since I was a baby and never liked meat so I already eat a lot of veggies. lately I have tried to eat a seasonal diet and I gotta tell you that is NOT easy for a person living in switzerland and craving AVOCADOS – ORANGES and LEMONS : ) so every now and then I had to make an exception and bought some delicious avocados, lemons and oranges. I try to mix vegetables, carbs and proteins. my favorite dish is rice with beans and different vegetables – I could eat that every day! a well-balanced diet is step two to a healthy body! mmhhmm. I think it is time to show you some of my lovely dishes that I am cooking all the time. stay tuned. now back to the healthy lifestyle. drinking enough and eating a well-balanced diet are key to a nice and fit body. the industry is showing us so many different things to stay in shape and one could spend hundreds of franks on different products. and thats why I wanna show you these 3 awesome products that I have found at MIGROS!
I started using them last week: the ZOÉ slim-it! for my tighs, belly and arms and the ZOÉ push-up! for my decollete. it takes at least four to six weeks to see any results. so I will keep on applying these lovely buggers and will get back to you with my results. have a lovely tuesday and I hope it was not too bad to get back to work – well at least the sun is out. : ) I have moved my computer so I can sit in the sun – have a look at my instagram photos here >>
so yesterday after waking up with an even more swollen eye than the day before I decided to stay in bed and wait for better times – and then the sun came out and I just had to go out for a walk. I was at the rhein and strolled around kleinbasel and was surprised to see so many people 🙂
denim jacket weather I WISH 🙂 but with layering its possible! I am wearing my lovely new cashmere dress for the first time. actually it was my plan to not be wearing tights anymore from easter on BUT the wind made me wear some transparent ones because I was not in the mood to freeze to
nike free sneakers are just my most comfy shoes and I wear them with
everything! I think I will change the laces to black #todolist
I hope you had a lovely day off yesterday and were able to eat lots of sweets and chocolate. thanks C for taking the photos <3
last weekend I had the pleasure to use some of my new makeup products on Diana. we ended up using the new SISLEY phyto 4 ombresand we both really like the colors and luckily we also both like the result.
so what was I doing? I was using the lighter grey color all over the lid (but not all the way up to the brow) then I used the darker grey and i drew a V shape on the outer corner of the eye. because I have already done Dianas foundation and concealing I wanted to be prepared for any fall out from the eyeshadow and thats why I used lots of loose transparent powder under her eyes – in case of fall out you just brush the powder away with a fan brush and there will be no smudges or darker spots below the eyes. so we have the light grey almost all over the lid and the V in the outer corner in the darker grey – the next step is blending the V with a nice fluffy crease brush. I took the blue color and blended it all over the lid. as a last step I used the light grey color and smudged it very lightly along the water line. VOILA that is the complete eye look with the new SISLEY phyto 4 ombres in 2 mystery!
this is the complete look and in case you wanna find the exact same products you can click >> here and have a look at my POLYVORE page, all the products are listed. enjoy. X
another outfit on the blog, this time I am layering my green fluffy funny COMME DES GARCONS jacket by JUNYA WATANABE with the super warm down jacket by C&A (fair down production – read more here >>) this look is a very casual one with a big mix of high and low end clothes. something I love to do is mixing styles and different brands – how boring would it look to wear a head to toe GUCCI outfit – no thanks!

something new! yay – thank you so so much for sending this lovely business card case my way. I absolutely love it and can use it very very well. so therefore I wanna share with you this awesome swiss online boutique. click here and enjoy shopping.
christmas is around the corner and we are all ready for the feasts. something that you can find on almost every table is napkins and this year I got these lovely deluxe line christmas napkins. when I first touched them I thought these napkins were reusable meaning that I could wash them BUT no. they are single use napkins
I havent had the time to test them yet but it is for sure on my to do list and as I have rather sensitive skin this line might be the perfect thing for me. in case you have tried it already please let me know what you think about it. sharing is caring, right?
I love love love the new ARLESIENNE L’OCCITANE collection – it smells absolutely delicious! available online and in all the shops! I think this would be the perfect X MAS present for people that love floral scents as it is made out of three flowers: ROSE – SWEET VIOLET – SAFFRON.
thank you very much for sending these lovely two products as soon as I have finished all my other showergels I will for sure use this one – so long!
I got something new to share with you. a tiny piece of plastic that makes me smile! I am talking about the LOMOGRAPHY camera with the fisheye lense that I got via isda.ch. It has been a while since I have used a non digital camera and I am very excited to be using this analog LOMO camera and I can not wait to see the developed photos.
info about the camera
– viewing angle of 170 degrees
– distortion effects
– excellent depth of field

tomato-potato soup from MANOR and my first GRÄTTIMA this year with a bowl of my favorite chips by ZWEIFEL. I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw that MIGROS is already selling grätima – this is something we eat on december 6, for santa claus. but next to the grätima I saw there were already some X MAS cookies – wtf ? ehm, I am not in a winter mood yet, but thanks for offering the sweet side of it as I can not stand the cold of the swiss winters! BON APPETIT!
thats the name of the Clarins Fall Makeup Collection 2014 and the main focus on this collection is the OMBRE MATTE eyeshadows trend. they launched 6 new colors, an ECLAT MINUTE base fixante for the eyes, the SOURCIL PRO KIT, the 3 DOT LINER in brown, a new OMBRE MINERALE quad palette, four new ROUGE ECLAT lipstick shades and the BLUSH PRODIGE 07 in tawny pink.
beautiful colors, awesome consistency and very easy to apply. especially the 3 dot eyeliner makes it very easy to draw a nice subtle line above the lashes. the piece that I have used the most so far is the lipstick but thats no surprise to me as I go thru lipsticks super fast because I wear lipstick almost every day 🙂 thank you CLARINS at MANOR Basel for this chic makeup bag – totally love it and I am a bit tempted to wear it as a clutch.
in the picture above you can not only see the new products from the LADYLIKE collection but also the CLARINS BB cream and bronzer as I was wearing a full face CLARINS makeup look today.
I am really trying to stick to summer but hey I live in switzerland and fall has already hit us! anyway I have found a nice way to keep summer in my life by using these awesome producst for my hair! not only the products scream summer but also the scents. all of these products have to be applied to wet hair and make big, full, wavy, voluminous hair.
I have already showed you the TOTALLY BAKED product a couple weeks ago – for the folks who have not read this yet can read it here » it has such a lovely sweet lemon tarte scent – mmhhmm! another favorite of mine is the L’Oreal Professionnel DUAL STYLERS by tecni.ART BOUNCY & TENDER – a cream and gel duo for defined and soft curls. such a funny tube as it has two tubes in one. the outer one holds the gel and the inner one holds the cream. I am in love with the scent – I really wanna rub this thing all over my body 🙂 because of its good scent. last but not least my newest product is the ROLLAND OWAY FLUX POTION – soft-hold sculpting fluid with biodynamic marrubium, organic black quinoa, aamla and ethically-produced marula. it is fragrance free and paraben free but still it has a very fresh lemony scent. it gives my hair a nice grip and I feel it is a lot easier to blowdry with a round bristle brush.
next to my products you can see a tiny bit of my beautyiful bowl by mebel – you can use it for fruits, vegies, salad or I dunno what else 🙂 at the very moment I use it for fruits. in case you wanna have a closer look at it check here »
I use this after I washed my hair and I apply it from the mid lengths to the ends and I seperate different pieces and try to form curls – then I either let them dry naturally or I blowdry my hair and wow! it gives me BIG hair and I dont have to wash my hair for at least three days! whenever I go somewhere where I can not wash my hair easily then I will make sure to use this product before my trip!
last week I was invited to the press conference of Estée Lauder in Basel at the Radisson Blu Hotel. as every time the ladies from Estée Lauder prepare a lovely room and inform us about the latest news and what has happened during the year. thank you very much for inviting me! there are many new products and honestly I have no idea where to start 🙂 so I will just quickly name the products from left to right and will get back to you later with individual reviews and first impressions about each product. I left out the new PURE COLOR VELVET nailpolishes and will show them to you in a separate blogpost!
today I am wearing the new ENLIGHTEN cream, the new EE Cream and the PURE COLOR ENVY lipstick in the shade 260 eccentric and I am very happy. the EE cream leaves a nice dewy finish and makes me look about 5 years younger 😉 I will upload some photos to my instagram later. have a look! xx
