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?
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!

SCHLOSS HERZFELDE / CASTLE HERZFELDE (D)
it was so nice to stay two days in the countryside at the beautiful castle HERZFELDE and spend some time in the nature. I loved wearing my new GANNI blouse and my selfmade summer hat and strolling thru the fields. the blouse is an amazing keypiece for floral outfits. I can pair it with highwaist shorts, jeans or a skirt – everything goes!
for a simple casual everyday look ballerinas come in very handy as I prefere to wear flat shoes during the day. one of my favorite ballerina brand is PRETTY BALLERINAS
I would wear these ballerinas with skinny jeans, white t-shirt and a black blazer or a black leathe jacket – or I would wear them with a simple black dress – or I would wear them with a nice pair of slacks and a simple cashmere sweater. let me give you some inspiration:
what do you think? would this be something for you?
I am having an awesome time! thank you zalando for having me here.
tomorrow I will start the day with YOGA in the garden (hopefully the weather will be nice) and then I can attend several workshops but what I am looking forward to the most is taking photos in this beautiful location – CASTLE HERZFELDE!
aww. what a city. I need a moment to process all these impressions – I think I got a visual overload – I saw a lot!
the alfa romeo giulietta was such a nice ride and it took us safely to VERONA – VICENZA and VENICE. it was a blast!
I am now going thru all the photos and emails that I missed in the last ten days and will get back to you as soon as possible. I took some really nice pictures: a piece from the ESPRIT fall collection and 2 pieces from GASSMANN and gave them an italian interpretation. I can not wait to share it with you! xx
Huile Precieuse a la Rose Noire by Sisley Paris will be available in September 2014. Thank you for inviting me to the pressconference in Zürich, it was such a nice day at the Dolder Grand.
as I am already a fan of the masque creme a la rose noire by sisley I was very excited to see that the soon to be launched product was also containing black rose. I am very happy to be able to test this product before it is available in the stores and I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really really love it! I use this precious face oil every other day and night and I think I will even love it more in winter when my skin is dryer. It can be used alone or under the moisturizer day and/or night.
so what makes it so special?
Omega 3 fatty acids, plum oil, camelina oil, phyto squalane from olive oil, funnel alge, vitamine E, avocado extract, black bulgarian rose, magnolia
all these things help to calm, repair and maintain our skin.
available in September 2014 online and in BASEL at
Globus, Douglas, Marionnaud, Amavita, Hyazinth, Müller, Manor, White Room
gottex launched a very nice and colorful 2014 collection and above I am showing you my favorite pieces of the collection. I love the rainbow swimsuit, the lovely prints and color applications.
Do you know gottex swimwear ?
“Gottex, the iconic swimwear brand was established in 1956, and since it’s birth has always been associated with Quality, Fashionable and Glamorous après wear. Since it’s creation Gottex has been, and still remains to be the key brand on retailer’s vendor matrixes, and is showcased at the Bryant park venue in New York as part of New York Fashion Week, for the Spring Summer Collections, where it is seen as a fashion leader in the Swimwear Business. Since June 2009 Gottex has enjoyed new acclaim and a new generation of followers and critics, after Molly Grad, Creative Director of the Gottex group, joined the company.” I found this information on their website.
anyway, I think it is worth to spend a bit of money on a bikini especially when you know that it is going to last a lot longer than the usual H&M bikinis or whatever cheap brands there are 🙂
stay tuned for the photoshooting with the gottex swimwear collection!
I am really happy with my XRAY eyewear sunglasses! unfortunately they are not in the catalogue but here you can see me wearing them with pride 🙂
so above you can find my XRAY eyewear selection and I am very sure that I will get myself another pair. thank you Jessica for showing me around in the XRAY eyewear showroom. It was really not easy to pick my favorite but I managed to do so! which is your favorite pair?
for more than 10 years I am using the DOVE original deo and the silky Body Creme. two awesome products to be used every day!
I love it when you can be sure that nor the fragrance nor the texture is going to change – just because you know that it can not get any better! in spring I really like the DOVE sunshine to tan my white legs and be prepared for summer. which is your favorite DOVE product? Is it listed among my favorites?
let me know, leave a comment below. xxx
wow, so I have checked my wardorbe and I found out that the last two months I was shopping a lot at ESPRIT. As I previously mentioned, the store in Basel is one of the most beautiful shops because of its amazing stairs coming down in the center of the store. I will try to take some photos when I m there next so you can see what I mean.
so what I wanna share among you is that ESPRIT has great SALE prizes and that it sometimes is worth to gamble and wait with purchasing and only buy it when its on SALE – of course you risk that your size or color might be gone. I was always very lucky with this system, especially at ESPRIT store Basel. As you can see I found many black and white skirts, black boots and fauxlether shorts a fancy two color dress and a white top. All these things can be combined together – thats key to me!
some of the pieces are not only wearable in summer but also for fall and spring! and I dunno about you but among my friends ESPRIT had some sort of a “Grandma-Shop” touch and by showing you my shopping haul I think its very clear that this aint the case!
