this morning I started with a delicious milky smoothie. I had frozen raspberries, a banana and milk and these are all the things one needs to make this very smoothie. its very simple and all you need in addition is a jar or jug and a stick blender. a very optional thing is to have a fancy paper straw. I found mine via DAISO, a japanese shop in San Francisco.
1/2 glass MILK 1 bowl RASPBERRIES 1 big BANANA
put everything in the jar and use the stick blender to mix everything. once you are happy with the consistency pour it in your favorite glass, add a straw and thats it!
I am a big fan of these biodegradable paper straws, they totally make my day! they make a simple glass of water look fancy and I love to drink my smoothies with a straw, the only down side is that they start to degrade or fall apart very fast, so make sure to either have enough in order to switch your straw every now and then or you have to drink fast, lol! have a good day!

yes spring and summer have come to basel and as in the years before it is not a slight change of temperatures nooo, it is a very rapid change from 12 degrees C it jumps to 30 degrees C the next day… so for the wardrobe that means to always be prepared. I have my spring summer and fall clothes in the same place. the only things that I have removed are my winter coats and winter dresses – the rest stays because you never know you might need something with longsleeves the next day..
when I was in Paris I found this lovely bold blue silk blouse at the SONIA RYKIEL outlet and I love to wear it with other bright colors.

I wish you all a nice extended weekend. I hope the weather will stay nice and that we can all enjoy some ice cream in the sun. 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!
wearing a subtle mix of yellow and brown! I love to play with colors and materials and I was surprised that I have not worn this combo before. I have found all these items a very long time ago and all of them were on SALE!
the shirt I have found at Benetton in Basel and it is by SISLEY – the skirt is from FIZZEN and the awesome brown pointy pumps are from the NAVYBOOT Outlet at STÜCKI. the brown H&M leather bag found its way for 5 CHF into my wardrobe from the fleamarket 🙂 so yeah, not all of them were on SALE but all of them were a bargain.
I hope you all had a nice weekend and that you can start freshly into the new week – I got loads of things planned for the upcoming week – fashion shootings – cashmere SALE and an event in ZH. stay tuned. X

ha, it looks like I am in a blue mood these last couple of days! when I looked at my instagram the color blue was dominating my dashboard. well, what can I say it is true from a fashion point of view other than that I am not feeling blue at all!
shading blue was one of my last photoshoots for my blog and for the ones who have not read this blogpost yet you can do so now and here >>
I visited the fleamarket and I found 2 amazing things – 2 pairs of jeans!
blue and black/greyish and the best thing is: I spent 5 CHF on one pair and 0 CHF on the other.. what a bargain! thank you Joelle! (I hope that is really her name, sometimes I get confused when being introduced to more than just one person..)

todays message: mix black with a bit of color – its fun. I love floral prints and I think it works really well with fakeleather skirts. what do you think?
IT IS FIAT 500 my new love! and I am so blue in a beautiful and not sad or melancholic way! this little bugger makes me wanna drive all day 😉 I m not kidding! I had a lot of fun at the photoshoot with James and Patricia, she took the amazing photos – thanks again!
so picture this, I am in a blue car and everything around me is blue.
