yay, I got a new lovely mouse via Logitech. thanks so much!
the fox is called FRANCESCA and is part of the new playcollection logitechM238 and I was thinking of calling her ERICA. somehow I think this name suits the fox better 🙂 anyway, I have been working with this sweet bugger for the last couple of weeks and I really like it! another nice thing is the price: 29.90 CHF which really is a bargain plus it makes me happy to see a little fox instead of my grey mac mouse. now what else is on my desk besides the iMac and the mouse?
< ACCEPT what is, let go of what was and have FAITH in what will be >
thats what it says on my rituals candle and I absolutely love the message. it is so true but not always easy to accept what is. I struggle with that but I have to say that I feel a lot better since 2013 and that almost every day that has passed since then was a good day! when I work at my desk for my blog from at home I want to feel good and thats when the flowers come in. I love flowers and I try to spoil myself every week with new ones. this week I chose pink roses and put them in the old vase I have found at the fleamarket. another important thing on my desk is my agenda, I am still oldschool when it comes to scheduling my time : ) the cutest thing next to the little fox is the white clock that I also found at the fleamarket it is a mechanical one with no batteries and makes quiet some noise but like with almost everything one gets used to it after a while..
it is that time of the year again where Basel becomes super fancy, international and glamourous it is the time to see beautiful watches and sparkling jewelry! it is BASELWORLD 2015!
I saw this girl every morning since the very start of the fair and she always holds the Louis Vuitton sign and stands in front of the fair – after the third day I said hi so in case you see this I hope you like the photo I took of you.
spring is here! so many gorgeous flowers were arranged for the BASELWORLD fair. I love these flowers that you can see in the photo below. are those peonies?
and like every year here are the ladies in black and white that provide information. I asked them whether the dresses are comfortable and they said yes – thats nice! I heard that they are very happy to not wear the hat, like they had to, in the year before. 🙂
and then I fell in love with those red shoes designed by Christian Louboutin and Swarovski. read more about the shoes here <<
and now I wanna show you some nice photos how certain brands showed their watches at the BASELWORLD fair.
I really hope you liked my BASELWORLD 2015 impressions. have a lovely day! X
something from the US – and I am talking about the new wetnwild eyeshadow palette in FLORAL VALUES! this is the perfect palette for spring and I was already playing around with it for the first time this very morning and I gotta say I am impressed by the colors – they can be applied in a more subtle way and in a very bold colorful way and I think thats something very important as not every day is the same day and ones mood is changing with the wardrobe and maybe with the weather so we want to be able to have some freedom!
I made a tiny YT video about my new palette and for the ones that have not visited my channel yet now would be a good moment!
I dunno if I should mix this palette with the new TOLEDO violetwink palette by maccosmetics. what do you think? they might go perfectly together as they both have a nice mix of rosy, pinkish lavender colors. I am so ready for spring!
here you can see the light subtle swatches and the more bold swatches and this makes the 5 eyeshadow an actual 10 eyeshadow palette!
I got to try this new fragrance by CLINIQUE and I absolutely love the name and the packaging with its white bottle and golden ring around the lid. I also like the scent but I can’t see myself wearing this as I dont really like patchouli but I already have the perfect person in mind to wear it.
It is a modern fragrance touching base with natural ingredients for an elegant and mordern woman.
here you can find the overview of the ingredients:
top notes: violet leaf accord, cistus, sichuan pepper
middle notes: rose water essential, orange flower, patchouli heart
bottom notes: amber gris, musk, benzoin
30 ml / 78 CHF available at Marionnaud
Fleurs de Cerisier L’Eau – limited edition
this could be a nice present for you or friends who love floral scents as the name implies its about cherries but not only – have a look at the different ingredients in the different notes of the fragrance.
nuances of lemon tingle together with black currant and watermelon.
easy and carefree, the cherry blossoms combined with the notes of violet and rose.
the fragrance has a subtle musk wood touch.
its available at all the L’OCCITANE shops in february so it will be perfect for the people that celebrate valentines day <3
nothing brand new but rather new. the thomas sabo fragrances CHARM ROSE and CHARM ROSE INTENSE are available since mid of October for 39.90 CHF.
here is what I read about it: “the very first THOMAS SABO CHARM CLUB fragrance is the culmination of all CHARM CLUB collections – CHARM ROSE Eau de Parfum. a fragrance all about Luck, Fashion, Love & Passion. in addition to the pleasurably fresh top note and the sensual base note, the heart of this scent is a dazzling bouquet of rare roses. The 1950s style bottle with its silver cap and small pendant is a real gem, as well as the exquisite CHARM CLUB style packaging with satin lining. The charming extra: you can use the ribbon with the sweet rose pendant perfectly as a hair band.”
I can totally agree with them about the rather fresh top note and the very sensual base note with lots of roses in between. I am totally in love with tha packaging and can only welcome tiny parfum bottles for my bag on the go! a fragrance for the special everyday!
this dress says it all – flowers, summer, silk – it has the perfect cut and it feels like if I wouldnt be wearing anything. I wore it to the Biennale opening of Khaled Malas’ excavating the sky exhibition in Venice, Italy two weeks ago.

clutch PRESENT FROM ZAIRA
fan PRESENT FROM MY DAD
I love silk and I love patterns so when I had my hands on these buggers I couldnt let them go! the GANNI blouse has this boho chic pattern with the flowers – a perfect piece to match with jeans or black shorts. I took some really nice photos wearing this blouse at the #zalandosummerhouse and I will soon upload the photos to my blog. aaww.. the mint TIBI dress – a dream has come true! unfortunately this dress is already sold out. it looks really nice with my redish hair and it is super comfortable to wear – 100% silk – the best thing about this dress: it has pockets! the printed silk dress by SEE BY CHLOÉ is another dream come true – seriously! I love silk dresses and I love prints so this is the perfect combination – a printed silk dress! with this dress I really need to wear heels as the length of the dress is covering my knees and would make me look very short with flats 🙂 I wore it last night with beige platform sandals and a leatherjacket to a birthday party and I made a huge stain!! I really really hope, hmm they (drycleaner) will be able to remove it! I am such a scatterbrained person and thats why things like this happen to me! anyway, back to my favorite zalando pieces which make very nice keypieces to wear with other things.
here you can see how I wear my favorite zalando pieces – they are great for this early fall weather and I am sure I will find many other ways to wear them. how would you wear them?
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!
