turn digital photos into something haptic

Have you ever felt the need to turn your digital photos into something haptic?
Or are you about to host a party and are in need of some cool flyers? I recently was thinking about making a photo album with all my photos from the blog. In the past I made some books with my outfits of the year and that was a big success. There are so many online tools to create the album of your dreams.

I got asked to check out color photo service by CEWE and had a look at it. Indeed it is a great way to make photo albums, postcards and special invitations. The tool is very simple. You download the software and choose the folder with the photos that you want to use. I made a simple test to create a postcard with my collar necklaces. As I have my own collar necklace collection I figured it would not hurt to make some cool postcards to feature them a bit more. It is so easy to turn something digital into something haptic.

I know so many people that made photo albums and all of them are super happy with the result. As I have mentioned before I wanted to make a book about my blog. But making a book about all my blogposts would be quiet a challenge and would end up in a 1000 page album that nobody wants to see. So the key part of making an album is selecting the right photos. What should it be about. Should I only show my travel photos or do I want to focus on winter outfits from the last couple of years. Or should it be all about makeup trends and news? There are many ways.

I figured I will start with postcards and take it from there. The software is set up very easy. On the left you have the folders with your photos and on the top you can choose the fonts and layout options. In the middle there is your preview. First you choose a layout. There are many templates to choose from but you can also create your own. I went for the second option and designed my own layout. Have a look, do you like what I made? I am super happy with the results and can not wait for my order to arrive.

SIMPLE BODY SCRUB DIY

SIMPLE BODY SCRUB DIY

SIMPLE BODY SCRUB DIY

Today I wanna share a very simple body scrub DIY with all of you. Something that is done super easy and can be changed in many ways. Now lets see what you need inorder to make these body scrubs. I made two different scrubs, one with coffee and one with lemons and oranges.
things you need
coffee
salt
sea salt
coconut oil
lemons
oranges
grater
mason jars

SIMPLE BODY SCRUB DIY

step one:
In this DIY I show you how I made the coffee body scrub. Take some coffee grounds and mix it with 2 tabelspoons of coconut oil. In case your coffee grounds is still warm then you dont have to heat the coconut oil, if not I would suggest to heat it up a bit.

step two:
Add three tablespoons of normal table salt and six tablespoon of sea salt. Mix everything. And that was it. Super easy and simple. It only takes three steps and it is a great way to recycle coffee grounds.
How to make the orange and lemon body scrub:
For the lemon and orange body scrub you start with the normal and sea salt. Then you grate the peel of a lemon and orange. Squeeze the juice of the lemon and orange and mix it with the salt. Then add the coconut oil and mix everything. Again, thats all I did for this second scrub.
SIMPLE BODY SCRUB DIY
I use the scrubs two to three times a week after washing my body. The most amazing thing about these scrubs is, that you dont have to use any body lotion. The coconut oil totally does that job. The scrubs leave your skin super soft and especially in winter our skin can need some extra pampering.
I made these scrubs so many times and I love how simple it is. There are many ways to change them. Instead of coconut oil one could add massage oils or any other scented oils. Or you could add some fresh vanilla to the coffee scrub in order to make it a tad sweeter. The best parts about these scrubs are that you dont end up with any plastic trash and you save lots of money. Coconut oil, salt, lemons and oranges are quiet affordable and easy to find. So I would love to hear from you. Did you make any scrubs? If so, what did you use?

FALL WINTER LOOK INSPIRATION

FALL WINTER LOOK INSPIRATION

aww, I found so many wonderful pieces at C&A and want to share with you some stylish and versatile outfits. As the title mentions, FALL WINTER LOOK INSPIRATION, I want to inspire you to wear some of your pieces that you might have already have in your closet in a different way.
The first look is very basic but a rather chic look. I somehow always feel a bit more chic when wearing a black/white look. But maybe thats just me. 🙂 Anyhow, I put together a white ribbed 3/4 sleeve shirt with an oversized black lace detail tank top and wear it with blue skinny jeans and a black/beige clutch. To make the look more casual one can wear sneakers. The look can be easily changed by wearing heels or like in my case below to wear small black heels, that make it all a bit more elegant.

And now I wanna get to my second look inspiration. A mustard ribbed 3/4 sleeve shirt with high waist jeans and green/brown tweed heels, gold jewelry and an oversized denim jacket and a big green alpaca scarf. The color combo of that look is so totally me. I love the mix of denim, green and yellow. Also in that case you can easily switch the shoes and make the look a bit more everyday.

FALL WINTER LOOK INSPIRATION

Last but not least I am showing you a look that I have already featured on the blog before. The article was called: “How to wear a Summer Dress in Fall” read more here >> I am still so much in love with this kind of layering look. As it is no longer fall and we have moved into winter I am adding some thick tights and would switch the flat shoes with warm boots and finish the look with a warm coat or wear a big scarf.

HOW TO WEAR A SUMMER DRESS IN AUTUMN

I hope you have found my outfit inpirations helpful and that it will inspire you to wear your clothes in a new way. Most of the basic pieces, like the ripped shirts, the tank top and the long sweater, I have found at C&A in Basel. I am always amazed about how many cool and versatile pieces I can find there. The clutch that I am wearing in look #1 is also by C&A and I have used it so much thru out summer and realized that its a great all year around clutch.
Special thanks to Miguel for taking the photos of me. X

PCC what is that

Protection Cheveux Complexe, PCC what is that?

Thank you very much to Coiffure Winter for pampering me and making my hair look nice again.
I went to her salon in order to trim my hair and color it back to my natural hair color: dark brown. Since I had several drastic color changes in the last two years, my hair ends are really dry. In order to make my hair look healthy again I wanted to try the new PCC treatment by La Biosthetique. Here is what I found out about it.
PCC what is that
PCC what is that?
Protection Cheveux Complexe is a new dimension in hair cosmetics. A real milestone in research and development from La Biosthétique. The revolutionary active ingredient complex protects, restructures and conditions the hair both inside and outside during and after chemical treatments. The hair structure is lastingly renewed, the hair is conditioned and sealed and regains its natural beauty.
PCC claims to be the new formulation to combat hair breakage. Bleaches, colour and perms all have one thing in common; to achieve lasting results, certain structures in the hair have to be broken. Bleach decomposes the natural hair colour, whilst colour deposits new pigment and Perms change the structure and shape of the hair. The network in which keratin, the hair’s most important building block, is embedded, has often breaks in some parts which make the hair more sensitive and weaker in certain areas.

PCC what is that

PCC’s innovative formulations were created to avoid precisely this side effect. They now make the impossible possible. A concentrated molecular protection complex fills gaps inside the hair’s network, known as sulphur bonds, during the processing time of bleach, colour and perms, and deposits new keratin into these gaps or breaks in the structure.
  • WITHOUT PCC (see photo, hair top)
    There can be broken open sulphur bonds (oxidation damage)
    Gaps in the hair structure due to reduction of the amount of keratin in the hair
    Rough and damaged hair surface
  • WITH PCC (see photo, hair bottom)
    Protection and formation of the sulphur bonds
    Keratin in the hair is maintained
    The surface of the hair is regenerated and protected
I tried the PCC treatment at Coiffure winter and you can see the ampule in the photo below. I love the way it looks. So precious and delicate. Depending on your hair length and dammage they can use more than one. My hair was so dry, and I really want to emphasize WAS. 🙂
PCC what is that
Benjamin Bohm, Hair Care & Color Technician at La Biosthétique says

“La Biosthétique supports the hair’s beauty. That’s why it made total sense for us to develop a system that keeps its promises and has proven results! Just a few steps to healthier hair! Protection Cheveux Complexe is a revolution in hair care. By using highly effective ingredients it is proven to protect the hair from the consequences of chemical treatments.”
The results are proven to significantly reduce hair breakage, much stabler, more resistant hair.
Protection and renewal of the molecular hair structure from within, 20 % more softness and
healthy and naturally beautiful hair.

PCC what is that

HOW TO USE PCC?
Protection Cheveux Complexe, PCC,  is performed in three steps.
Complexe 1: Concentrate is added during the chemical treatment to restructure and protect the hair.
Complexe 2: After the chemical treatment there is a restructuring and protective conditioning application with Complexe 2 Spray + Mask Intense.
Complexe 3: Continue the protection and care at home. Regular home application of Spray and Mask Vital/ Volume after the salon treatment ensures the results of Protection Cheveux Complexe last a long time. It guarantees exquisite shine, strong elasticity and sleek body.

PCC what is that

I can assure you, this thing really works. Oh wow, the results after one treatment are very visible and made a huge change to my very dry hair before. I will def go back and get another PCC done. For the people in  Basel get in touch with Coiffure Winter. www.coiffure-winter.ch

uv 50 mineral

UV 50 MINERAL – what is that?

360 ° – protection for everyday life

yes, thats what we all need. we need to take better care of our skin. I am every year surprised to see so many of my friends with sun burnt skin. and with all the information that is out there I was hoping that everybody understood so far that the flaming ball in the sky that we call sun, can cause some serious damage, in most of the cases irreversible. UV rays and environmental pollutants cause the skin to be irritated. the skin tends to dry out, loses its luminosity and ages a lot faster.

uv 50 mineral

 

what does the new UV 50 mineral with ection do?
  • against UVA / UVB radiation (without chemical filters )
    100 % mineral sunscreen, based on natural micro pigments and any health risk .
  • against environmental pollutants (anti – pollution). the anti-pollution complex with ectoin acts against exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, ozone and free radicals .
  • against skin aging with help of ectoin. it increases the moisture in the skin and protects the immune system of the skin and the cells and DNA from harmful UVA rays. ectoin reduces the formation of sunburn cells and acts against wrinkles and skin aging.

 

uv 50 mineral

ectoin:

ectoin acts as a natural DNA and cell protective factor against UV induced skin damage and it supports the immune system of the skin. therefore it is used as an active ingredient in skin care and sun protection. ectoin stabilizes the natural structure of biopolymers such as proteins, nucleic acids and biomembranes. and thats exactly what protects against skin damage from UVA and UVB radiation.
it acts not as a UV filter, but as a cell protection preventive against sun allergies, UV-induced skin aging and light dermatoses. It prevents damage in the epidermis and deeper layers of skin. In combination with an UV filter it has a highly effective cover and protects the skin ‘s immune system.
now we read a lot about the magic ingredient called ectoin. I am always amazed about how far skin researchers came until today. and always love to use products that are without preservatives, dyes and allergenic perfumes.
I was really happy that I got one of the new UV 50 mineral to try, so for all of you that might wonder. yes, this is a sponsored post. 🙂 for a long time I did not need any SPF 50 here in Basel due to the weirdly cold weather in June. but now its the moment to apply it every day and I am so happy that finally the sun is back and that I also have found a great product to protect my skin.
I love the fact that it does not make my face white and that it is being absorbed very fast. as I am wearing my sunscreen underneath my foundation/ tinted day cream I dont want anything greasy or white 🙂 in case you have sensitive skin then this is something for you. I love it and have used it for the last couple of sunny days. my skin has not reacted with any breakout and thats always a very good sign.

uv 50 mineral

with the UV 50 mineral I got 5 bands for a smart way to enjoy the sun. smart sun wristbands measure the amount of sun you are being exposed to during one day. it changes color to let you know when to apply more sunscreen or when to stay out of the sun.
works everywhere. changes color faster in strong sunlight. measures the total amount of sun during an entire day. measures both UVA and UVB radiation. can be used in water, even in saltwater and chlorinated water. should be used from sunup to sundown, both indoors and outdoors. when the wristband turns pink, the risk of burning is high and then avoid the sun completely. one wristband is one-day use only.
yellow = original color (unused)
red = apply more sunscreen
pink = avoid the sun

uv 50 mineral

wow, thats a really smart invention and I can not wait to try these bands in Barcelona. my suitcase is almost packed and like every time it was a challenge to find the right things. stay tuned via my social media channels, there I will keep you up to date during my vacation.
have a lovely summer and dont forget to apply sunscreen, regularly! X

OUTFITS – ART BASEL 2016 WEEK

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.

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!

Basel Tips

MY BASEL TIPS

I live in Basel and therefore I am a local who can give you lots of tips about Basel. especially during the Art Basel week we tend to have long days and long nights and then its very nice to treat oneself with something nice. so, when I have a rough day or my feet hurt from being on them all day long I like to get myself a footmassage or a pedicure, depending on my time schedule. I can absolutely recommend Ramona Gysi and her salon RG Cosmetic & Massage.

Basel Tips

I had the pleasure to get a foot reflexzone massage the other day and it was such a relaxing experience. by massaging the feet the whole body is affected and therefor it feels like a full body massage.

in case you need a hair cut I can also recommend a very nice salon called WINTER COIFFURE its located behind AESCHENPLATZ at Lange Gasse 28. Stefanie Winter is cutting my hair for a very long time and I blogged about my experiences several times before.
