a rather casual and comfy outfit that I am showing you today. but I am very happy with my newest purchase of jeans. in fact they are my new favorite jeans. I found out that the perfect length for me is to buy short sizes. luckily C&A runs short (and long) sizes and the 36 short fits me perfectly. another favorite of mine is the NINO BOLLAG jacket – a great piece to slack over almost every outfit. I guess thats why it is a favorite. when I think about my favorite clothing items I see that many of them can be worn in various ways with lots of different other things. what is your favorite piece? let me know. xx

aww.. I think this is definitely one of the great things about winter time – I get to wear my wintery leggings with fancy patterns. I got this pair years ago at H&M and there are many places where you can find similar pairs.
one of my favorite things about fashion is to mix and match or mismatch! and the best thing is to stay within one color but try to wear different shades of the same color as I did it with my outfit above! often I do it with blue grey or brown as I think these colors have the most beautiful shades and will not make you look too colorful!
I just realized how many cool pieces I have found at fleamarkets all over the world. I always end up finding something nice that I absolutely need to have! but so far I have never regreted any purchase! 🙂
what a beautiful day – the sun is back! life is so much easier with sunshine!
I cut my hair last week, how do you like it? I also changed the color to a golden copper brown – I m very happy with the result. for all the ladies and gentlemen in basel – WINTER COIFFURE – right behind Aeschenplatz – www.coiffure-winter.ch – say hi from me if you go there 🙂 have a wonderful day! xx

I am already a huge fan of the vitamin e body butter and night creams and I will definitely check this product out. stay tuned! xx
in-shower is the new thing! I have tested the NIVEA in-shower lotions and milks and I got totally hooked. in winter I am feeling too cold to apply lotion and in summer I m too hot – so when I discovered these products I knew that this was exactly my thing.
so how to use it? first you use your normal showergel or creme or whatever you use to wash your body. once you are clean you can apply the in-shower lotion. make sure not to drop any product as it can be very slippery – so be aware! the in-shower body lotions are like a conditioner. you apply it once the body is clean and then rinse it off and ready you are. my skin is very dry and thats why I like the in-shower body milk (darkblue) the best.
Clinique has spoilt me by sending me these gorgeous new chubby sticks for lips and eyes. it all arrived yesterday and I couldnt hold back. I had to try them! I have used the 14 grandest gold as a base allover my lid. I put 02 lots o’ lattein the crease and 13 two ton teal on the outer V of the eye. It blends very easy and I was able to apply the complete eyelook without any brushes! I am really happy with these chubby sticks for the eyes as applying makeup can hardly get any easier 🙂

I love to look back and see what I have been wearing the last couple of years. some pieces are still in my closet and some have found a new owner 🙂 what is your favorite piece? which is your favorite outfit?
ladies and gentlemen, I am shocking you with some bright colors.
this season I will try to focus on bright colorful outfits. Of course I also have a huge crush on pastel colors but every now and then I need some power by wearing something bright!
Sandra Bauknecht and her team did an amazing job launching the Swiss Edition of the ‘ooh so famous L’OFFICIEL magazine. The launch party was hosted at Kaufleuten ZH and the main sponsors were Aston Martin, Perrier Jouet, Chopard and Park Hayatt ZH. The decoration was soo beautiful – there were little boudoirs, and lounges to sit with glasses full of old books and sparkling diamond jewelry by Chopard on the tables. L’OFFICIEL’s first edition was launched in the 1920’s and there were many old cover photos in massive golden wooden frames!
I met wonderful people last night, thanks to Katrin R. who was introducing me to so many gorgeous ladies and helped me spread the word about my blog! check out Katrins beauty blog here >>

this month it will be all about BEAUTY PRODUCT BESTSELLERS previously I have showed you the Bestellers of L’Occitane and The Body Shop , M.A.C and today I will show you 2 of the Estée Lauder Bestseller products.
an alltime favourite of my mom, #1 Advanced Night Repair. She has been using this for at least 6 or more years and I can really see the effect it has to her skin. so when I read that Advanced Night Repair is among the bestselling products of Estée Lauder it really made me curious and I had to try it out myself. let me tell you, this is a magic product that will smoothen and soften your skin while you are asleep – not only smooth and soft it makes you look very fresh! #2 Double Wear foundation – aww.. this is one of my favourite foundations, it stays in place and leaves a nice finish. I apply it either with a foundation brush or with my fingers. the only thing I would change about this product is the design. I really miss a dispenser. the bottle opens with a lid and has no pumpsystem or so – therefore I think its not the easiest foundation for on the way.
