LISTENING TO: WOMEN’S HOUR – DARKEST PLACE

Today is one of those days it doesn’t really get light and you don’t want to leave the house. So I’m sitting on my cozy sofa, listening to the beautiful, dreamy sound of Women’s Hour, a London based band. Highly recommended!!

MUUTO ELEVATED VASE

Today I’m loving the new Elevated Vase from Muuto which puts a new perspective on the traditional flower vase. It consists of a grounded and solid ash bowl that holds and elevates a light and transparent glass vase and comes in three colours: grey, green and rose. Tell me, which colour would you choose?

COTTON LOVE DEBUT COLLECTION

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

Do you remember the first time I wrote about Cotton Love over a year ago? Back then Ruth and Nigel were running their fabulous vintage webshop. Now they’re coming up with some thrilling news: their own first collection. The launch is as unconventional as the label – it’s on a pre-order basis via the crowd funding platform Kickstarter. Launching the collection this way ensures a small label to realise their vision and your money will go entirely into the production and manufacturing.

LA VIE EN ROSE

imageimage

Today je vois la vie en rose – as I love roses (and oh their smell!) and most of all I love to have rosy cheeks with a dewy healthy glow. So first of all I grab my oversized Dusty Pink Mohair Jumper from COS and get myself out of the house for a long autumn walk. Back home again I sit down on the couch, tie my hair up and apply one of my favourites when it comes to face masks: By Terry Sérénité de Rose Mask available at Niche Beauty, a radiance booster par excellence, immediately restores freshness to tired and dry skin. Speaking of dry skin, my poor hands really deserve a hydrating treatment with the Intensive Hand Cream with Persian Rose & Argan Extract from Grown Alchemist, that leaves them looking beautifully supple, soft and revived. Then I just lean back on the couch, meanwhile all those little helpers work for me and enjoy reading the 8th issue of the Gentlewoman. After rinsing the mask off, it’s showtime for the RMS Living Luminizer, a little gem I can’t recommend highly enough. It’s the ultimate highlighter for creating a sensuous, sheer, luminous glow without being sticky, greasy or glittery, it just looks very natural.

Now have a rosy Sunday, lovelies!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZALANDO!

What can I say, sometimes it’s a hard knock life here because most of the onlineshops don’t deliver to Switzerland, as we don’t belong to the European Union. But Zalando does. Since 2 years. And I that’s why I’d like to say “Happy Birthday" and "Thank you" for selling many of my favourite labels like Ganni, Bruuns Bazaar, Rodebjer or Carin Wester – where I got this lovely white Tuva Sweater in the picture above from).

MY NEW BAG? THE LBB FROM LITTLE LIFFNER

imageimageimageimage

Yesterday I had lunch with my friend Jasmin and I were talking about everyday-bags. I feel like a totally need a new one ( I’m actually dreaming of  "Le Sac De Jour" in navy, but okok… let’s drop this). And then a couple of hours later when I browsed through Nouvelle I stumbled upon the Swedish label Little Liffner. And – eureka! – there it was!  My new everyday-bag to be: the LBB. The LBB is made from lizard embossed leather and comes with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap and black leather nametag. This fall it joined the Little Liffner family together with the Spotted Mini Clutch and two versions of the envelope bag: The Scarlett Leather and The Shades Of Black Clutch (very nice siblings!)

STYLE TRICKS FOR SMALL APARTMENTS

imageimageimageimageimageimage

Today I’m loving this very small studio apartment I discovered at fantastic Fantastic Frank. Though there’s only one room, it looks quite spacious. It’s the light and airy furniture that does the trick.

Here’s how to style your small place: Mulig Clothing Rack from IKEA // folding chairs are great, because if you don’t need them, just fold them together and put them aside: like the B Chair designed by Konstantin Grcic, available for example via Nest // small Blyth Storage Side Table from Habitat // Desk A-LA from Bolia (on sale!), can be used as a desk and as a dining table // the String System from Nils Strinning is very versatile and appears never too bulky // AJ Floor Lamp from Arne Jacobsen via Finnishdesignstore // display your favourite clothes: Wire Hangers from Ferm Living.
