something nice

these two lovely things found their way to me and I have been using them the last couple of weeks. ooh dear, I like them both!

VICHY Capital Soleil BB Creme SPF 50

It has a lovely texture and a rather light coverage. I love BB Creams and I love high SPF protection and here I have found the perfect combo. A BB Cream with SPF 50!

KIEHL’S Micro Blur Skin Perfector

Apply this and you are ready to go, this product immediately blurs all my imperfections into oblivion! I have to say I am very much impressed! I use it after my Creme and Foundation and wow I can really see a before/after effect. I hope to be able to catch this on camera and show you.



I got the WHISKY LOVER SET with the lovely stone ice cubes and 2 beautiful whisky glasses. the absolutely wonderful LOMO fisheye nautic camera which I am going to take to Berlin – I am flying to Berlin this afternoon and will be attending the zalando summerhouse event, stay tuned for more! and last but not least I got the grey entity salad bowl by MEBEL – I can not wait to use all these cool things. my next salad will be served with style and I hope my LOMO fisheye photos from berlin will look cool. I will keep you up to date. xx

something new

aww. M.A.C has launched the new collection called MOODY BLOOMS
and I got a few pieces to play with. This morning I used the BRED FOR BEAUTY BEAUTY POWDER BLUSH and the MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL SUN POWER! wow! these products are totally made for me!
blushes, bronzers and lipsticks are my favorites! I will get back to you and introduce the whole collection.

today is a special day, I am going to meet my Bloggerfriend MIA and we are going to the hairdresser to experience something new. soon I will tell you more! stay tuned. xx



hahahaha, well yes, it is really true! never change a winning team, right? thanks to Passion for Brands I can call MIA2 by Clarisonic and Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash my own and I love them both and when used together it’s like having a facial at the salon – every day! sigh! I have very sensitive skin with couperose on my cheeks and that’s why I have to be very delicate to my skin as it is irritated very easily. I use the Clarisonic brush for sensitive skin and a tiny bit of the Face Wash in the shower and it’s just the best way to clean my face in the morning!

Here you can read my post about MIA2 and

my favorite DOVE products

DOVE sunshine
DOVE powder deo
DOVE original deo
DOVE silky

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



my favorite TOM FORD products

As we dont have a Jelmoli in Basel and Manor nor Globus carry Tom Ford I always enjoy the moments in Zurich when I finally have time to pass by Jelmoli. And the last time I did that I walked out with an amazing product called shade and illuminate in 01 intensity one. oh dears, I love this piece. and ever since I have met Adam (MUA) during the fashionweek in paris I knew that I wanna own this product myself. Adam did an amazing job for the Nino Bollag show and made the models glow! so yes, I am very happy with it. Its not a cheap thing to buy and I dont really remember what I paid but have a look when you are in Jelmoli the next time. two other favorites are the springcollection CORAL BEACH nailpolish and the SWEET SPOT lipstick. both can be worn every day. I like the nailpolish on my toenails and the lipstick goes perfect with a bronzed summer look. Which are your favorite Tom Ford products?



LUSH – makes me happy!

aaww.. I got a LUSH box for my birthday and I am on cloud number nine! thank you Jaswant! I was already a LUSH fan before and used many different soaps and lotions before. but now I got some new things that I really love!

what was in my box?

red FUN
what a softy – mandarine orange essential oils will make you think of sunny orange groves and frehly squeezed juice! brings a bit of summer to your bath and play time!

Sugar Scruba skin cocktail of sugar, grated ginger and fresh fennel to liven up tired skin and sort out any lumpy bumby bits. get your body nice and wet, smooth all over and rinse off!

The OLIVE branch shower gel
fairtrade olive oil, fresh mandarins, bergamot oil and vine leaves. we have crammed the whole Mediterranean diet into this bottle! Superbly softening, reassuring gel for body and hair!

WHOOSH shower jelly
Whoosh was named after the sound of deadlines whizzing by. Useful for renewed focus when tired, jet lagged or revising for exams!

From Dusk till Dawn Massage Butter

mmhhmm! they all smell so good! I have already tried a few of my new products and so far the stepping stone for feet and the whoosh shower jelly are my favorites! I will keep you posted about the other things soon and I also made a little wishlist for my next shopping trip to LUSH. stay tuned! xx

– nothing

moisturizing lotion

Q: how did you use it?

after the exfoliating tonic I use the moisturizing lotion. or when I shave I use it after shaving and after using the post shave soother.

– nothing

post shave soother

bling bling

awww.. I love jewelry and everything with glitter and bling bling! when I was strolling thru zalando.ch I found these gorgeous pieces that I had to share with you. the very sleek and tiny heart necklace goes with everything, something I could wear everyday! the white earrings are screaming for attention so I would wear them with a complete white outfit or to pimp a simple jeans, t-shirt, blazer, pumps look! the necklace to the right is super gorgeous and I can imagine wearing this for a night out together with my favorite little black dress.

46 CHF snoe of sweden
white earrings
33 CHF sweet deluxe
golden necklace
65 CHF sweet deluxe

do you guys shop online? I do 🙂 and before I start shopping I check FLIPIT for coupons. they have amazing discount codes for so many things. its totally worth to check before shopping the web! enjoy! xx



La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo +

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo +
I have been using this corrective unclogging care  which states – anti-imperfections and anti-marks for the last couple of weeks. the effaclar duo + is made for acne prone skin which I obviously dont have but I tend to have little facial daemons once a month – so thats the time when I am using this product everyday. I really like the consistency of the product, it is very light and leaves a matte finish. I am not sure if I am going to repurchase it so I will continue to use it and will get back to you when I know. stay tuned. xx


my favorites

these are my favorite cecil.ch pieces! there are so many beautiful must-have pieces for spring/summer, like a nice light parka, a beautiful canvas bag, a bright scarf or a printed t-shirt! I recently cleaned my closet and I now have room for new things! so let me show you my favorite must-have pieces that I have found via cecil.ch

a printed top  34.90 CHF
a good keypiece to pair with a black pencil skirt or with a nice skinny jeans and blazer.

a colorful scarf  29.90 CHF
another must-have piece for summer. it goes with a simple black dress or on a white t-shirt with jeans. my favorite is the floral print but there are many more.. it was tough to make a decision 🙂

a blouson parka  89.90 CHF
I think we should all have an olive green light summer blouson or parka in our wardrobe. the one above is a perfect hybrid version of the two. and again this can be worn on top of an elegant dress or with a casual maxidress or with jeans – everything goes!

a denim parka  100.00 CHF
aaww, I love this piece, such a cool denim parka – perfect for the upcoming summer nights. I would wear this with a bright red lip, a white t-shirt, my favorite black discopants and sandals. my go-to summer parka look!

a summer knit sweater  60.00 CHFanother good keypiece for summer is a light knit sweater. you can wear it on top of your favorite t-shirt or over a dress for the evening. what I like to do is to tuck the front part into my highwaist skirt or jeans. when I saw this beautiful baby blue I knew that I had to have this sweater!

a perfect canvas bag  49.90 CHF
I love stripes and I love navy blue – so this bag is the perfect match for me! we all need a good bag for summer – an easy light one that can fit your swimgear or the romantic picnic.

I found my favorite pieces for summer via cecil.ch, what about you?



oylous switzerland has something really nice!
I tested the ALL I WANT kit with the 3 products


and instantly I had all these different songs in my head – A PERFECT DAY (lou reed)LETS SPEND THE NIGHT TOGETHER (the rolling stones)HUNGRY EYES (eric carmen)  amazing names for skincare products!!

so besides the cool names with musical memories I want to tell you a little bit about the products.

a daily moisturizer without SPF for normal to dry skin
it smells very similar to some of the WELEDA products
so nothing fancy – a rather natural fragrance. I liked it but I would not repurchase it at the moment as I really need SPF in my moisturizer for summer.

a rosa mosqueta collagen boost facial oil for normal to dry skin
I am a huge fan of facial oils and can directly compare it to the KIEHLS
midnight recovery concentrate which I like better because of the smell.

a moringa nutritive eye repair cream for normal to dry skin
it can be used all around the eye area and it feels super soft but still
moisturized. I love it and this is also my favorite product out of the 3.

oylous.com a very simple and nice swiss skincare brand with lovely packaging and amazing names for the products were so kind to give away a HUNGRY EYES eye cream to one of my followers/readers.
