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!

Looks like this little ball is about to jump, isn’t it? Today I’m totally smitten with this "Tip Of The Tongue" table lamp by Michael Anastassiades made of a single mouth blown opaline sphere set upon a polished brass base.

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.

image

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.

A NEW ON- AND OFFLINE CONCEPT STORE: THE LINE

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

To be honest, often when I’m sitting in front of my computer late at night, tired after my dayjob, I ask myself “Why the hell am I doing this?”. But then, like today, I discover something and in an instant I realize that this is one of those moments of bliss, moments that make blogging worth it. What I’m talking about is the first collection of Protagonist, a collection of refined essentials designed by Kate Wendelborn, that makes its debut on The Line, an exciting New York based concept and e-commerce site. The Line is the latest endeavour from fashion stylists Morgan Wendelborn and Vanessa Traina, with their vision to sell a quintessential range of carefully selected goods from emerging names across fashion, home and beauty (like Reed Krakoff, Vince, Christophe Lemaire or Rodin). And all those goods also come together in the intimate context of an”off-line home”: The Apartment – a boutique that will be the starting point for discussions, workshops, screenings, dinners and other events.
